I have a tooth that has been on the edge, since I lost part of the filling. It started throbbing and kept me awake the first night. That's when I got out my arsenal! I immediately started with tumeric tea (Tumeric - as much as you can stand, 1/3rd Almond Milk or Almond Oil, some vanilla flavoring for taste and the balance with hot water). I made 6 cups during the day and as I went about my day, I just swished the tea around on the upper side where my tooth hurt.
Late in the afternoon, I peeled about 6 garlic bulbs (not kidding) and sauted them in olive oil (about 25 pieces). I ate every one (its a good thing I like garlic! ) By late evening, the horrible swelling had gone down and I had this "nub" of swelling between my jaw and cheek. The throbbing had completely gone away by this time. All of a sudden, the "nub" burst and now I am back on the mend! I really love Tumeric Tea and Garlic!
