hi everyone. i started lil pulling with sunflower oil once a day in the morning maybe 10 days ago. i have had gum problems for years now, parodinthosis, gums receding, and i have had it in control moatly by changing my diet and i also did some dental surgury interventions. i would still occasionally get minor gum infections. right now, in the middle of my oil pulling tretment i got the worst gum infection again, my gums are infected, hurting and bleeding. my question is could this be a side effect of the oil pulling therapy? before when i had this problem i would take Antibiotics and that would immediately stop the infection and bleedign but would also disrupt my whole system, i had major candida problems after taking them the last time. also does anyone know a natural way to replace the Antibiotics , something that wouldnt affect my whole body in a negative way like that? im drinking wild oregano oil one drop a day, i heard thats good in killing bacteria and with inflamatikns, it ertainly helped me with candida. that also might contribute to the aggravation of my infection. it all might be just signs of cleansing, but since i dont know that for sure im a ot worried and i came here for some advice. thank you!
