Here goes, I started yesterday, after reading all post here and decided to try. Went to health food store and purchased cold pressed sunflower oil. I started swishing the moment I got home. A little back ground, I have bad peridontal desease, receeding gum line and bleeding, I have really large pockets towards the back of my upper teeth I can litarlly stick a thin toothpick though and see the end of the toothpick on the other side. For the last two months or so I have been having sensitviy in the areas of the deep pockets in two spots upper back on both sides of my teeth, molars I guess. Any ways I tried to keep them supper clean with peroxide, brushing often, rinsing large particals of food out after each meal, flossing. Tea tree oil and clove oil I just started for pain.
OK I have been swishing twice a day, two times one right after the other, for a total of 40 mins.
Results: bleeding stopped, even when I go poking around to stimulate circulation to my gums (usually it will bleed). Pain subsiding, but still have sharp pain with extreme temp. whether cold or hot. will keep persisting to see if is eleviated. fresher breath, teeth feeling clean. I'm happy for day #1.
Good side effects: I woke up this morning my face feeling very soft, not oily, which is what I normally notice, so I ran to the bathroom right away and notice my face looked soft, skin not dry and usual, even my hands were soft and its normally dry. Also big notice of the bags under my eyes I get every morning, it wasnt there, gone, I was so suprised, pleasantly suprised. Washed my face and expected to see dryness, but its so soft, I'm loving this. And its only day one. I'm going to keep doing in two times, twice a day on empty stomache and keep you guys posted.
