I started the oil pulling on 11/27/13. For the first two months I had sinus drainage for an hour after each oil pulling. I was using sunflower or sesame cold pressed oil. I only do the oil pulling first thing in the morning.
Then in February I started using coconut oil every other day. After a week or two of using the coconut oil my cold sore root was extremely painful for one day. For another week it hurt if I touched it but otherwise was okay. It turned into a regular cold sore and the scab came off twice. There is still some discoloration but the cold sore root is gone. I am not sure if it was the coconut oil that did the pulling on the cold sore root or if it would have happened anyway just using the sesame and sunflower oils.
I was totally amazed that swishing oil for 20 minutes in the morning can accomplish so many things. I never dreamed it would pull out the cold sore root. oilpulling.com is the website to visit for many testimonials.
There have also been things coming out of my skin like pimples or moles. The moles fall off within a week. The pimple doesn’t even break skin and it only lasts two days. Things are happening though. I am hoping the sinus cleansing part during the first two months took care of my allergies. We shall see what we see when we see it….as a dear old friend of mine used to always say…..
Pretty funny story to share. So, my background is in science and I have degrees in Chemistry and Statistics. When I was at the bike shop, a great non profit orginazation called Bicas here in Tucson, and a girl came up to the guy who was helping me with my bike and asked for some help with her algebra my ears perked up. I could see that this guy did not want to help her so I quickly said “I will”. I taught math for a few years and I just love algebra.
I got inspired and thought why not put a post on craigslist for tutoring. I did and charged only $10 per hour. When I noticed that others were charging $50 per hour I wondered if anyone would be p…..perturbed that I was charging so little. Tonight I got notified that my ad had been flagged and thus removed. It takes several people to flag your ad to get it actually removed.
And I get that people are competitive…. I certainly am. But this was only for fun and to help the people who do not have a lot of money to spend on tutoring.
Obviously this is not how I make a living so I am not inclined to fight this type of………..well, is it harassment?
Ah well, just wanted to share this feeling of…hmm, not even sure what to call it? Miffed? But not entirely surprised.
But, I gotta say….after the bike shop incident I went to the library and checked out some algebra books and started working problems…..getting a 98% correct on answers and it was fun. Oh well, maybe I will meet someone who needs some tutoring in the future.
I love algebra….it’s just like solving puzzles.
