This invaluable information comes form Michael Brown who has had problems with his teeth for the past thirteen years and has found excellent results from using these simple remedies.
1. Teaspoon of cinamon a day will reduce craving for sugar. This will help you to reduce or eliminate drinking soda pop and other sugary items that hurt teeth and gums.
2. Place a teaspoon of epsom salts in your mouth and let sit as long as you can stand it. Swish with water to remove the salts. Do not swallow the epsom salts.
3. Green Tea: Make a mouth wash by steeping ten bags in a quart of water. Swish throughout the day, keeping the tea in your mouth as long as possible then swallow the tea. Green tea has lots of antioxidents, is good for your brain, and kills bacteria. You can use any kind of green tea, including Lipton which is available for as little as 6 cents a bag.Also, get in a habit of drinking green tea–less strong. But don’t drink on an empty stomach–you might get nauseous.
4. Night time ritual. PLace 1/2 capsule of golden seal in each cheek. Put a dab of peppermint oil on your tongue. Take two tablets of calcium with magnisium. Crush in teeth a little so that it gets into the tissue. Let it stay in your mouth as you sleep.
5. Get as much vitamin D as possible through sun light. You can also get a vitamin D 3 supplement.
6. Massage gums vigorously and regularly, at least once a day with a piece of cotton cloth like t shirt material, towel or wash cloth. It does does something similar as dry brushing by stimulating the blood flow which brings healing.
7. Eat a clove of garlic at night. Crunch on the clove a little to alert your stomach to secrete digestive enzymes, and swallow the clove or cut up pieces as you wish.
8. Massage gums with tea tree oil and peppermint oil. use your finger, and also you can use the broken edge of a tooth pick to get the oil close to your teeth between tooth and gum. (this hint came from Richard Orr).
