Kavalam or Gandusha

Kavalam or Gandusha

Greeva Vasti


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 means ‘gargle’.

Gandusha, as oil pulling is referred to in Ayurveda, has been used for millennia. In Ayurveda, gandusha not only serves to clean the oral cavity but is also rids the body of any toxins or waste products that arise as a metabolic product. These deposits gather in the body and could lead to an array of discomforts or illnesses.

Incorporating Gandusha into your morning routine

Oil pulling is best carried out in the morning by swirling a tablespoon of oil in your mouth and pulling it through the interdental spaces and teeth. Spit the oil into a basin after 10 to 20 minutes and rinse the mouth with lukewarm water, and you’re done!

Traditionally sesame oil is used in Ayurveda for oil pulling purposes because it is said to be particularly well suited. However, other plant oils such as coconut and olive oils may also be used.

According to Ayurveda, oil pulling is said to have several positive benefits for the whole body. Gandusha can help with:
1. Migraines
2. Impure skin
3. Inflammation of the mouth and throat
4. Fatigue or dullness
5. Limb and joint pain
6. Rheumatic diseases

What Our Patients Say About Us?


Nithya AS

I found to have diabetes just 3 months back. My sugar was around 200+ .I didn’t want to go to any alloathic doctor as they will ask to take medicine life long. I saw Dr Aravind in youtube and was impressed by his speech. I went to him in Jan and he gave me Ayurvedic medicines and diet chart for diabetes reversal. It’s been 3 months now and now all medicines are stopped and as he promised my sugar levels are 105 fasting and 93 post prandial. I was shocked to see the results. All diabetes patients can go to him blindly. Just listen to his instructions. Your diabetes will be reversed.

Myself and my husband tested positive last month, and we came to know about ayurshi ayurveda thru our family member, and we have started taking ayurveda medicines from day one, within 7 days started feeling back to normal, Special thanks to Dr Arvind bharadwaj and team for providing constant support over phone for any kind of clarifications and medicines delivery also on time. Now we both completely recovered. We need to follow strict diet as prescribed by doctor along with medicines and belief.
