Oil Pulling

Hi, I'm currently on Triple treatment with Boceprevir ( starting the PI next friday) and wondering if any of you folks have gotten into a natural health therapy called Oil pulling. If anyone has any info on this therapy and if it can be practiced while  on treatment I would love to hear from you.
Thanks for your time.

You may want to focus on the only treatment known to cure people of hepatitis C.

Rinsing one tablespoon of oil in your month is not going to do anything for your hepatitis C or liver disease. If it did why would pay 10s of thousands of dollars for treatment drugs that can have many times difficult side effects?

You might want to prepare yourself for triple treatment and understand what the side effects can be and how to manage them.

Good luck with your treatment!

Thank you to nygirl, copyman and Hector for your common sense and bringing me back to my  reality. I went off on a tangent with this oil pulling for a few days. I am prepared, this is my second go at the demon and this time I intend to win.
Again, thank you all

You can do it Lane. And you know, we've all been pretty desperate to beat this thing so we understand completely.
