Method – Gandusha or oil pulling involves retention of medicated oil or decoction in the mouth cavity for several minutes. The Ayurvedic text Charaka Samhita mentions Kavala gandusha – Kavala refers to that which is related to the oral cavity and gandusha is a gargle.
Gandusha assists in the process of pulling out oral toxins. Just as the skin excretes body waste and toxins, the tongue eliminates toxins and harmful microbes from the body. The treatment involves putting 1 tablespoon of oil in your mouth and swishing it for about 15- 20 minutes. It is ideally done on an empty stomach, which is best to pull out all kinds of built-up toxins from the mouth and the body.
Benefit – Gandusha helps bring a glow to the face, improve lines and wrinkles, tone the skin and assist with any kind of mouth, voice or teeth disorders while cleansing the ear, nose and throat pathways. This treatment is reported to treat numerous health conditions ranging from sinusitis, migraine, asthma, and diabetes along with comprehensive oral and dental health care.
