I had a scare awhile back now. Within a period of 24 hours my top right
of my mouth became very sore, then an abscess appeared on my top gums.
It was so painful, I could hardly eat!
Gum disease has been known to be called the Silent Killer. And with good reason. You don't always know what's going on till you have a disaster. Like I did.
Since my late 30's, I've been told I was having gum issues. I did the
typical scaling and root planing. Which only helped for awhile. However,
my gums continued to get worse, sometimes better, depending on my
stress level. Another dentist told me I would need surgery. I had no
intention of following that advice! At one point, I'd purchased an
irrigator tool that worked wonders but my partner and I were traveling a
lot, so I opted to try and do it manually. Turns out it wasn't a good
Anyway, back to my abscess. Ironically, before the pain took over, just
the day before, my little voice was telling me I need to get another
irrigator. I jumped onto the internet and looked into alternative health
for dental information and came across David Snape. He had what I was
looking for. I called and bought a Hydro Floss Irrigator the next day.
It was delivered within 2 days!
Within a week of using this irrigator the abscess had cleared out and
now my gums are back to normal. Well, hopefully healthier because they
aren't bleeding anymore. To speed up the process of this horrible
problem, I squirted Colloidal Silver into the pocket. Colloidal Silver
is a natural antibiotic and won't give you symptoms of needing a
pro-biotic afterwards. At first, the hole was so tender and stung, but
after about a week, it all cleared. I can even use the irrigator now at a
higher speed to continue to clean out my gum pockets.
The other part of this healing crisis is the mind/body connection. Every
day or as many times as I could remember, I repeated what Louise Hay
said about abscesses. "I allow my thoughts to be free. The past is over. I am at peace."
This became my mantra for about 5 days. Furthermore, I also firmly
believe that because I have been drinking green smoothies for over 6
years, my immune system is strong and I was able to combat this
infection within a short time. I feel so blessed.
Now that I am feeling much better, I want to share with you my approach
to natural dental care. Some of the tips listed below were already implemented
before my problem, which may have helped me heal that much quicker.
1. Supplements - I put a teaspoon of Ascorbate C Powder in hot
water. I drink it first thing in the morning instead of tea. Vitamin C
tightens the gum tissues almost immediately. CoQ10 is another excellent
supplement that improves your immune response in gum tissues and may
reverse the diseased gum conditions as well as strengthen your heart.
2. Affirmations- Louise Hay has a book out titled, "You Can Heal Your Life" This stuff works! You have to be and stay in the right mind set.
3.Green Smoothies - I love them and I know this is why this latest healing crisis remedied itself so quickly because my immune system is strong.
4. Colloidal Silver- A natural antibiotic that is safe, non-toxic and without side effects. Below is an easy and quick method to make a colloidal silver toothpaste.
5.Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator- This is a must! Especially if you are having some of the problems I have been experiencing. The only way to safely and
effectively clean out pus or stuck food is to irrigate your gums.
6.Toothsoap and Tooth Brightner- A natural toothpaste that
gives your teeth that squeaky clean feel from the first brushing. And
don't forget the tooth brightner to have white teeth all the time.
7. Remove all silver fillings from your teeth. I visited American Bio-Dental Center in Mexico about 5 years ago. They were professional, caring and way less expensive than
dentists in the United States. I know you really can't do this at home,
but it definitely a procedure worth checking out!
One more thing I need to mention is that you may still need to visit a dentist. If only to see how you are doing and correct anything, (like a cavity) that isn't going away.
Stay tuned as I have a lot more to share with you on how to become more dentally self-sufficient!
And let me know how any of this works for you.....
