Thank you, Mr. Cuddly!
The tonic (goldenseal root, bayberry root bark, prickly ash, myrrt gym, coptis root) did help the rest of my mouth/gums, but worsened this one area, and I stopped using it when I saw what happened.
I sporadically have taken 30mg CoQ10 over the past month but was skeptical ..., and will bump it up to a regular 60mg a day now.
But how do I get a handle on the inflammation, when it seems like using a gum tonic with ingredients that are otherwise highly recommended in the forum doesn't work for that one area?
And yes, I also do my daily share of contributing to world peace,- and am a little less upset by now, too :-)
