I had a sore and bleeding gum surrounding one of my teeth.
IF THAT TOOTH HAS NO FILLINGS AND NO DECAY, IT COULD HAVE A LITTLE TRAPPED FOOD AROUND IT----OR THE BLOOD SYSTEM "PUSHES" WASTE FROM THE BLOOD STREAM UP AND AROUND THE TEETH.
I tried tetracycline, administered in a powder, applied by my dentist,
to no avail.
I also took a course of antibiotics
by mouth for 10 days, but the problem still persisted.
LEAVING OUT THE MAJOT PART OF THE STORY---HAS YOUR DENTIST MESSED WITH THIS TOOTH IN THE PAST……..AND I ASSUME ZERO DECAY OR YOUR DENTIST WOULD HAVE PUT A FILLING IN FIRST THING.
Then I tried Sensodyne toothpaste,
COMMERCIAL TOOTH PASTE ARE A PROFESSIONAL COMBINATION OF CHEMICALS FOR THE MOST PART. SOME CAN BE QUITE TOXIC IF SWALLOWED BY CHILDREN, ETC.
and that helped a bit. Finally, I tried a different toothpaste and put a drop of oregano oil on the brush and brushed normally. After about a week the pain and bleeding was reduced by about 50%.
BLEEDING IS A SURE SIGN THE BLOOD IS EXPELLING SOMETHING IT WANTS RID OF. PAIN CAN BE A SIGN OF INFECTION OR LOOSE TOOTH, ETC. NERVE DAMAGE.
I will continue to use the oil/toothpaste until the symptoms completely go away.
TOOTH PASTE IS SOMETHING I WOULD NEVER LIKE TO USE----IF YOU NEED TO POLISH YOUR TEETH, TRY THE CHARCOAL TYPE FORMULAS FOR BRUSHING YOUR TEETH--MY KIDS LOVE THAT STUFF. NATURALLY YOU CAN TAKE YOUR CONTAINER OF CHARCOAL AND PUT IN A FEW DROPS OF OREGANO OIL AND MIX WELL SO YOU HAVE THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.
THAT WHITE CHEMICAL STUFF THEY CALL TOOTH PASTE, I WOULD STAY AWAY FROM.
The side effect of the oil for me is a temporary burning sensation inside the mouth, similar to mouthwash.
ALL THE SPICES WILL END IN A BURN SENSATION UNTIL YOUR BRAIN AND BLOOD HAS RECOGNIZED THE SPICES AS FRIENDLY AND NORMAL---THEN NOT ONLY DON'T YOU SMELL THE SPICES, YOU STOP GETTING THAT BURN FEELING.
THE SPICES HAVE NO HEAT OR ACIDS TO BURN US---IT IS OUR OWN AUTO RESPONSE THAT MAKES OR CELLS CREATE THE ACIDS THAT BURNS US.
KIDS RAISED ON OREGANO AND CAYENNE ARE NOT BOTHERED BY IT.
HUMANS TEND TO BE MORE SENSITIVE TO SPICES, WHILE ANIMALS SEEM FINE WITH IT---I GIVE MY ANIMALS SO MUCH OREGANO AND CAYENNE THAT I DOUBT ANY HUMAN COULD OR WOULD WANT TO TOLERATE THE TASTE AND THE ANIMALS ALWAYS SEEM TO CARE LESS.
