cured and the effectiveness of OP. Out of a total of 1041
respondents, 927 (89%) reported cure of one or more diseases. People
who did not report any cure were 114(11%).The analysis indicated

Sample testimonies of different disease cured
There are many testimonies of disease cured from different people,
differing in age, sex and duration of disease. More examples are
given in my book on “Oil Pulling and Healthy Habits”. Sample
testimonies of chronic diseases cured are appended below for showing
the curative effect of OP.
Forty five year old Asthma and Allergy cured
I am 56 years old. I have been suffering from allergy and asthma
from the age of 11 years when I had my first menses. Whenever I had
head bath after monthly periods I was suffering from asthma, cough
and phlegm. It was very severe. This was lasting for about 3-4 days
every month. In addition whenever I had head bath I used to suffer
from the same type of allergy. I had tried all types of treatment
for 45 years to get rid of this but without any success. I was
spending my life with medicines but without cure. They had even
diagnosed as a heart problem. I had lost hope of living. Life seamed
a big burden and uncertain.
At this stage, on 3rd March 94 I met you (T Koteswara rao) in a
marriage and you came to me and explained to me about OP and
encouraged me to practice it. 2 months after practicing my problems
of health became a little more severe and I took them as healing
reactions and consoled myself with the hope that I am going to be
cured totally after the reactions. These reactions lasted for about
2 months. Now after 9 months of OP I have become wonderfully
healthy. Asthma has gone, no pains in the joints or body, no spots
or discoloration of the skin instead the skin has acquired a new
shine, digestion has improved and I can eat anything without the
fear of allergy. It is really enjoyable to eat things, which you
like instead of fearing about allergy and asthma.
My advice to all women is, do OP for all your problems you will
remain healthy and your looks will improve.

Allergy Asthma- Exhilarating Experience
On the first day of OP Feb 25, 1995, I felt an exhilarating feeling
of freshness in the mouth.
Because of OP, addiction to cigar smoking cured on Mar 28, 1995. I
was able to work with increased energy, concentration and less
impatience. My nostrils were clear and clean.
I had food allergic asthma from September 1975. By end of March '95,
I gave up the use of inhalers for asthma.
Numbness in hands and legs disappeared in April 1995.
Discomfort in my feet and joints due to walking disappeared by April
The food tastes better and I feel more energetic.
I am enjoying the freshness of mouth, good health and very sound
sleep due to OP.

Allergic bronchitis with wheezing
For the last three months, my wife and I are doing OP regularly. I
suffer from severe running nose. Now after I started doing OP, the
running nose has become very mild and it persists only for a day or
so. I also used to get severe bouts of cough and with great
difficulty manage to get the sputum out. Now the running nose does
not follow by cough.
My wife used to develop allergic bronchitis with wheezing due to
dust or after severe cold and on long journeys. She tried OP for
three months and did not develop wheezing or severe cough.
Dr. P.V.R.D.N. Prasad Sarma, (practicing since 1955), Machilipatnam,
Most importantly, I want to write about three cases of cancer. In
two cases, biopsy report confirms “schirrus type of carcinoma of
uterus”. In the third case, it is malignant growth of a tumor of a
size bigger than tennis ball on the jawbone. This case is also of a
woman on homeopathy medicines. Within two months of OP, in both
cases of carcinoma of uterus bleeding reduced, general condition
improved and they are confident that their disease will go. You know
confidence/faith contributes to cure more than medicine.
In the case of malignant tumor after a month of OP, pus came out of
a hole in the tumor on the jawbone. The pus stopped after three
weeks, the hole closed and the size of tumor came down to almost
normal. In these cases, my medicines must have given temporary
relief. I am hoping they will totally heal.
In case of joint pains the improvement that would have resulted in
eight months with my medicines, have come within two moths of OP.
For allergy, asthma and tooth diseases, the results are wonderful.
My medicines must have given only temporary relief. I am hoping OP
will heal them totally.

Constipation – Piles-“With OP Health Is Great Wealth”
I have been practicing OP for the last one year with Til (gingelly
-sesame) oil for fifteen to twenty minutes daily in the morning
without fail. I am 82 years old. I have been suffering from
constipation and piles for the last four decades. I consulted many
doctors, used many medicines but with only temporary relief.
Within two weeks of practicing OP, I started getting relief. There
was no pain during motion. Inflammation and piles decreased. I
started having free and clear evacuation. I am sleeping peacefully
and happily at night. Indigestion, lack of appetite has gone.
Decades old pain has gone just by doing OP with gingelly (sesame)
oil. Our Ayurvedic treatment is a comprehensive solution for all
diseases. It is good for all to practice. -“With OP Health Is Great

Diabetes - Pregnancy - Child birth
My age is 41 years. I am a diabetic patient with no children. After
doing OP for three months, I became pregnant. At the time of
pregnancy, my blood sugar increased. I stopped OP for about a month
thinking it was aggravating my problem. Having come to know that
aggravation is a sign of cure, I started OP again. The sugar level
came down and I continued OP throughout my pregnancy. After a
caesarian operation, I gave birth to a baby. The doctors checked for
sugar, both for the baby and me. We both were free from sugar. The
wound healed well and stitches removed on the seventh day. Doctor
was astonished at this. I found OP benefited me in the following
I weigh 90 Kgs. height 4’11” with weak twisted foot. By walking, the
foot used to become septic and pus used to ooze. By OP and walking
daily, I became strong and was able to walk up the steps without
OP reduced sugar gradually and diabetes cured. The skin became clear
and shining and the spots on the body disappeared.
The body became strong, teeth firm; gums healthy and the hair turned
black and stopped becoming white or gray.

At the advanced age of 74, it is unjust to expect miraculous result
from any kind of therapy. Yet I must say that what I have
experienced through OP therapy is almost a miracle and quite
Diabetes has been troubling me for the past 13 years. Now my blood
sugar level is normal, though I do not take any medicine. I have
discontinued all medication including vitamins, enzymes etc.

Retired Civil Surgeon’s Report- Left Ventricular failure
I had recently suffered from Left Ventricular failure. After 15 days
of starting OP, I could find the change in my condition as evidenced
by the echocardiogram. I was suffering from Acid Peptic disease
(duodenal ulcer) for the past 30 years, and OP has miraculously
given relief and I have stopped using antacids.
I had Benign Hypertrophy of Prostate since some years, and after OP

(Mouth) Halitosis- bad smell in Mouth
I have been suffering from bad smell in the mouth and pyorrhea for
the last eight years. Mouth smell has not gone except visiting the
dentist and getting things cleaned, and medication, Medication and
dental cleaning was giving me only temporary relief. After five
months of OP bad smell in the mouth has completely gone whereas,
pyorrhea has decreased and I feel confident that I will be normal
without this problem. OP has helped me to bring back my
self-confidence in a helpless state. With your kindness I am
breathing happily and feel that you have given me rebirth.

I am one of the old patients suffering from mouth ulcer since
last 12 to 15 years. After going through the article published in
Kannada Prabha daily I started "OIL PULLING" twice in a day (morning
& evening) from 27th of June 1995 along with medicine. During
initial 2-3 months period I got only 25 % benefit. After that I got
more benefit in 4-5 months period. After completing 6 months I got
100 % result and at the same time I slowly reduced my medicines. Now
after completing of 7 months I have completely stopped the medicines
and I have no complaints of mouth ulcer since last 2 to 3 months. So
I am happy to say that I got 100 % relief/cure of my old sickness of
mouth ulcer from "OIL PULLING".

Myasthenia Gravis (MG) [Double Vision]
In my 36th year in 1980, I had suddenly developed double vision and
right eyelid closing. Diagnosed as myasthenia gravis, medicine (prostigmine)

month, it came up again. Now I do OP only and do not use any

(Pains) Back Pain, Neck Pain
I had back pain for the past ten years and have been taking
treatment for the same with several doctors and traction was also
given for sufficiently long time without any improvement. I never
used to go to bed without a medicine like Brufen, Voveran and others
After reading the essay by Sri Tummala Koteswara Rao on OP, I
started practicing OP with sunflower refined oil and started finding
improvement within fifteen days and I was much relieved of the pain
within three months. Now it is six months since I have been doing it
and 90% of the pain is relieved. Now along with the back pain, the
pain in my neck and arm pits has also gone. I am not taking any
medicine for the back pain. I do not dare to stop OP.
After finding good results myself, I started giving lectures in
Telugu on "Keep Fit with OP" in various local schools and
associations and all of them are doing and most of them are very

Back pain and Arthritis
I have been suffering from arthritis in the knees for the last 10
years and pain in the lower back for the last two decades. I have
tried several allopathic medicines and got a temporary relief. I
started doing OP from Nov 17 1995 and observed miraculous changes
happening. Within 5 days, my arthritis in the knees and lower back
pain completely cured. It is just unbelievable how arthritis of the
knees cured, which the allopathic medicines could not do.

Knee and Ankle Pain
Though I was reading the reports of the efficacy of OP in curing
certain diseases in “Andhra jyoti”, I did not begin until my
brother, got relief from asthma and advised me to practice. I was
not able to sleep under a fan or in the open as my nose used to
block. Cold-water bath was another curse. After practicing OP, I am
able to sleep right under the fan with full speed with no
discomfort. The occasional asthmatic or esonophilia attacks
vanished. The pain on the left knee and right ankle for three to
four years are no longer there. A small eruption on my skull - five
years old - vanished. - 20 years old piles - has miraculously

Skin-- Eczema Cured
I am 79 years and have retired as a teacher. I wanted to be healthy
by doing OP and have been practicing once daily since November 95. I
have eczema for the last 30 years on the left foot. It has been
there inspite of various treatments. Similarly, on the right hand
index finger eczema is there for the last 10 years. I have lower
back pain for quite few years. It was called spondylitis. I have
been OP for the last 1 year and 8 months. Lower back pain has
completely gone and no pain. Eczema on the right index finger is
also cured and skin is normal. The eczema on the left foot is
becoming normal with a little itching sometimes. I am sure it will
also go, but the cure is simply surprising, but I am confident that
the remaining symptoms of eczema on the left foot will also be

Tooth Pain and Loose Teeth
I am an 86 year, aged retired public servant. I developed tooth
ache. The toothache was really agonizing. I thought, I may try,
being a skeptic, oil pulling before visiting the dentist. Hardly did
I try it for a couple of days then the intensity of ache came down.
In another two days the pain stopped totally. This pain was centered
on an incisor the base of which was affected and tooth itself was
shaking. Having got some relief I developed faith in its efficacy
and continued the treatment for a fortnight. The affected tooth
miraculously firmed up and now I am able to bite fruits and other
not so hard items of food. This is a radical change....I feel
thankful for this therapy.
