    a friend of mine is a chiropractor who believes in all sorts of weird bullshit (e.g., chiropractic to prevent and treat alzheimer's...loolz). on facebook she's been posting all sorts of shit about "oilpulling." ever hear of that gayness? this is it:

    take a tablespoon of coconut or seasame oil, put it in your mouth, gently swish and swirl for 20 minutes being careful not to swallow any oil, and then spit out in the garbage (not the sink...don't want bad bacteria!). then rinse with salt water and then brush your teeth.

    why?

    here's why, they say:

    oilpulling heals totally “head-aches, bronchitis, tooth pain, thrombosis, eczema, ulcers and diseases of stomach, intestines, heart, blood, kidney, liver, lungs and women’s diseases. It heals diseases of nerves, paralysis, and encephalitis. It prevents the growth of malignant tumors, cuts and heals them. Chronic sleeplessness is cured.”

    :lol:

    i knew her in high school and she was super cute and really smart. she's still super cute, but she's into that holistic medicine nonsense. i'd stick it to her like she was sally stickwell if i wasn't committed to my lady.

    she says it detoxes your mouth and body. the "proof" is that the oil takes on a milky white color after swishing for 20 mins, which they believe is due to the toxins it now contains.

    in reality, you've just emulsified the oil with your spit and emulsified oil turns milky white. put some in a sterile salad dressing shaker and shake and aerate for 20 minutes and i bet you'll find you've "detoxed" the perfectly sterile bottle, too. herp herp. derp.

    Dr. Sublux is a degenerate chiropractor. Chiropractors remind me of that "doctor" at the end of "The Man on the Moon."

    i have a few chiropracter clients & i used to run a law firm that had to partner up with the bullshit of those dooshbags.they are a different breed to say the least...attys, chiropractors, vetrinarians, investment brokers, pediatric dentists are all to be avoided, fucken scam artists...they are all just lowlife salesmen lying to your dumbass.

    she's loaded bro. she has an amazing lake house. people love their chiro's.

    it's ancient they say.


    :jj: i can't. she just needs to do her thing. but for the record, i just did it with seasame oil and, while i don't believe it did anything to "detox" my mouth or body, it did leave my mouth feeling nice after i was done and rinsed with salt water.

    seasame oil rules though.

    even veterinarians? i never heard they were scam arteests before.

    it's so funny...investment brokers...i fuck around with $1000 of mad money to make small time investments with just for fun. my buddy is great with money and he does the same thing. his brother works for price waterhouse and is friends with all these "investment experts." guess who's investments do best? neither. me, who knows jack shit about stocks, and those trained money/stock guys all do about as well as each other.

    Detoxing is bullshit.

    I was talked into trying an ionic foot bath.

    Depending on the color the water turns determines the "toxins" it's pulling out of your body.

    After reading the material though it admits that the water will change color even if you don't soak in it.

    do you remember those "detox" pads for your feet? you put your feet on them, they changed color, and that was supposedly becuase the discoloration was toxins from your body.

    they believe you leech toxins out the bottom of your feet. :jj:
