Detox With Oil Pulling

Pulling oil is an ancient Ayurvedic practice that’s been around for more than 3,000 years. It is one of the best ways to detox the body. The idea is to swish a tablespoon of organic, cold pressed coconut oil around in your mouth from anywhere to four to twenty minutes maximum. The longer you swish, the better the results. You must pull the oil between your teeth before spitting it out. It’s imperative that you don’t swallow the oil, because then you’re swallowing all the bacteria and toxins that come from pulling and that will defeat the entire purpose. Once you spit it out, rinse your mouth with lukewarm water.

The benefits of oil pulling are quite impressive. It whitens teeth, increases energy, detoxifies the body, helps in hormonal changes, decreases headaches, maintains a clear complexion, and promotes total oral hygiene. (Colquhoun, 2014) Banyan Botanicals Daily Swish Ayurvedic Pulling Oil Mint Flavor is an excellent product to utilize for oil pulling. It’s used best for supporting healthy gums and teeth and promoting mouth tissue function as well. Daily Swish contains refined sesame oil, coconut oil, fennel, peppermint essential oil, spearmint essential oil, and the herbs guduchi, amalaki, haritaki, and bibhitaki. All the ingredients are organic. Try Daily Swish today as a natural and traditional alternative to mouthwash!

The clinic resumed treatments on May 7th with limited hours and new guidelines, and we are slowly working towards full-time hours. Please check the Book Appointment page for available days and time slots, or call us. 

We will also be taking extra protective measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff:

·      All visitors musk wear a mask entering the building, checking in and waiting in the lobby. No exceptions.

·      We are providing disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers for all guests to use in several areas.

·      Each treatment room has a HEPA filter with a built-in UV-C air sanitizer (also used in hospital settings.)

·      Practitioners will wear protective masks and/or gloves.

·      Use of disposable paper sheets or change out sheets in between each patient.

·      Treatment tables and other surfaces will be sanitized after each patient.

·      We try to minimize the number of people waiting in the front lobby - your practitioner may ask you to wait in the car until the room is ready.

Please check your appointment confirmations for specific instructions. Our commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority.
