I read somewhere that the oil isn’t that important when oil pulling, just when ingesting…they all have the antifungal, baddie-grabbing properties. I don’t know if that’s true or not, just saw it on the internet somewhere :p
Anyway, yes, go you! It’s so rad you’re taking charge and doing something for yourself. I think it’s great that you’re tackling it all at once, but that’s how I am…like pulling off a band-aid fast instead of slow, heh. Other people don’t like to do it that way, though.
I would say, however, once you are all the way on the diet/protocol/etc., don’t cheat. I had some kind of accidental slip-up the other day (got a tea from Starbucks, don’t know what ended up in it, but it resulted in a panic attack and hours of sever bladder/urethral pain) and that really made me see how important it is that I stick with only safe foods until I am well symptom free. I believe Jo-Jo posted about a similar experience involving a spoon of milk recently.
For me, the first couple of weeks were pretty terrible, but it’s been mostly uphill from there. I’ve had a couple of problems (like the Starbucks Incident(c) and some leaky gut weirdness a few weeks ago), but it’s basically been slow and steady once i got on board. I just keep reminding myself that I’m stuck with this body for the rest of my life, so I need to be good friends with it and treat it as well as I can and help it get better, ya know?
