Thanks for the tip. I know Tropical Traditions is a good brand.
I have had issues with my gums and this is much improved. I've been adding CoQ10 liquid to my pulling, per Mr. Cuddly's advice. I've also been using the products at calciumtherapy.com which are specifically for this, and really streamlining my diet and supplements. Where there's a will, there is a way to healing, as you yourself have discovered. Onward and upward!
