Chlorella

I had a toothache and a little swelling, the tooth is a bit loose and I had been told by my dentist that it might need to be pulled. I'm 72 and haven't been back because of covid restrictions. Rubbing the area with salt helped.

I packed a bit of green chlorella next to the swollen area, by my cheek, and left it in place for maybe about 45 minutes, then brushed my teeth with regular toothpaste and finished up with hydrogen peroxide.

The swelling disappeared, and I haven't had to repeat the treatment - that was about 10 days ago. It seems that the tooth has tightened up, and I will be doing this again for the gums, which are receding a bit.


Silver Nanoparticles

Last November, I got a toothache while on vacation for a week. It came on fairly gradually starting out as just annoying and by the time I got home from vacation it was pretty painful and made it almost impossible to chew. I started placing a small rectangular cotton facial wipe that I had rolled up and saturated with 320 parts per million (ppm) silver nanoparticles in between my swollen gum and my cheek and I would leave it in place for about an hour twice a day. At the end of three days all pain and swelling were gone and no sign that I had had a toothache at all.

This week I got another toothache and since I was home, I started with the rolled up cotton pad and 320 ppm silver nanoparticles except this time I just put it in place before bed and slept with it tucked between my swollen gum and my cheek. I did this two nights in a row and now that toothache is just a fading memory!

Some years back I had gotten a similar toothache and went to the dentist who immediately said I needed a root canal and charged me accordingly......ouch! From now on I will try the silver nanoparticles for way less than a dollar in material before I head to the dentist. My toothache was literally healed while I slept.....how easy is that?

A word of caution here though......sleeping with a rolled up wad of cotton in your mouth may not be the safest thing to do because you could potentialy swallow it or choke on it while sleeping, so applying it during your waking hours is probably the safer approach, but now I know that silver nanoparticles have worked either way for me.

Activated Charcoal

Was reading the remedies and just wanted to add the following: I am a medical missionary that uses natural methods of healing. I encounter several different diseases and sickness in my line of work.

One remedy that I have never seen fail for toothache pain, is charcoal. It will stop severe toothache pain in about 20-45 minutes in most cases! I will give you an example with my wife. She begin to have toothache pain last year(2005) around the time of thanksgiving. She begin to call dentists for an appointment; however, the soonest that she could get an appointment was 2 weeks! To make a long story short the pain became unbearable. It radiated all the way to her temple on the side of the bad tooth.

So I took activated charcoal, added a little water, stirred to a paste consistency, placed it on a gauze(a piece of cotton t-shirt could also be used) and placed it directly over the tooth. I had her press down very gently. I then offered a prayer.

In about 12-15 minutes the pain that was radiating up to her temple begin to subside. In about 20-30 minutes my wife, who had been in such great pain, that she was in tears, and was unable to even sleep, dropped off to sleep.

The next day we also started her on a program of drinking 2-3 glasses per day of a table spoon of the charcoal mixed with a glass of water. She did eventually go to the dentist only to find that a small cavity had exposed a nerve, and infection had set in.

The charcoal worked on the infection because it is the inflammation that causes the pain. So by pulling or drawing the poisons from the infection(the underlying cause) the inflammation is addressed.

A friend of mine, who is also a very experienced medical missionary, with more than 30 years of hands on experience, even running a natural clinic in Tennessee for a long time, and having a 45-50% success rate with 4 stage cancer, (conventional success rate with 4th stage cancer is about 5%" gives the following alternative for toothache pain and abscess

These are direct quotes: "Mix 3 tablespoons charcoal,1/2 teaspoon clove oil, 1/3 teaspoon cayenne pepper, ½ teaspoon olive oil (enough to make a paste), and 1 teaspoon of golden seal. He states: " This remedy is strictly for pain in the jaw or tooth pain. Pack this around the tooth that is giving you problems. If you can cover the tooth up it will generate heat. That will remove the pain faster than any toothache remedy. Try it. You will feel the heat and you can go wash your mouth out. If you are in a lot of pain the heat is comforting. The pain of the poultice drawing is less than the throbbing of the toothache.[The mixture] should be quite thick, about the consistency of natural peanut butter. You want to be able to mould it around the tooth, so that it will stick."

The next is for an abscess specifically.

His words: "If you have an abscess with a lot of swelling, you cannot get that tooth pulled until you get the abscess under control. This recipe is famous for getting that abscess down 3 parts Slippery Elm, 2 parts baking yeast, 4 drops cloves, 1/3 teaspoon cayenne pepper. Add a little water, enough to make a paste. It will be gummy due to the slippery elm. Then pack this mixture around the gum. The slippery elm, like charcoal, draws the inflammation, the cayenne stimulates the cells around the tooth to release toxins and the cloves are added for the reputation as a pain remedy, especially in toothache.
