Weekend Detox with Oil Pulling Oral Oil Detox by GuruNanda

On Superbowl Sunday, most of us will load up on chips and dip, nachos, pizza and other calorie-filled munchies. But you can offset some of the toxins you accumulate from poor dietary habits and the environment with oil pulling--an ancient Ayurvedic practice based on the idea that self healing can be achieved when the three mind-body types known as doshas (Vatta, Pitta and Kapha) are balanced. 


Doshas are derived from the five major elements of air, water, fire, earth and space, and they express unique physical, emotional and mental characteristics. 

Dating back more than 5,000 years, the practice of oil pulling removes toxins which themselves are oil soluble. Oil pulling is most effective when a pure and dosha-balanced oil is gently swished in the mouth for a required period of time.

We received a sample of GuruNanda pulling oil (oral oil detox) ($14.99), which pulls toxins and harmful bacteria via the salivary glands.  This alcohol-and-artificial-color-free proprietary blend of organic sesame, sunflower, coconut and peppermint oils is formulated to maximize the benefits of oral detoxification.

Here's how to use GuruNanda pulling oil:

  • Shake well and place 1 tablespoon in the mouth. Gently swish, pushing the oil between the teeth for up to 15 minutes. If necessary, start with a smaller amount of oil and gradually increase pulling time.
  • Spit oil into the trash (not the sink). Brush teeth thoroughly afterwards.
  • Use daily. Results may be seen in as little as six weeks. Reportedly, the oil makes your teeth whiter and your breath fresher, and it can improve your overall health, including increased energy, weight loss, clearer skin and pain relief.
