Castor oil takes away pain and swelling from my tooth abscess.

I have had a long-standing problem with a tooth abscess made me miserable. My lower and upper jaw were throbbing and tender. My glands on that side of my neck were swollen and tender, and the pain went up into my sinuses.

I had experienced the pain relieving properties of castor oil before, on my arthritic joints, and thought I would try it on my sore jaw. I gently rubbed a little castor oil all over the sore area of my face and neck. I warmed the oil first, to make it easier to spread. Within 30 - 40 minutes the pain was much less, within another 20 minutes or so, it was completely gone. I applied a little more oil before bed, and put an old towel on my pillow to protect the bed linen.

When I awoke, I was still completely pain free. The swollen glands were back to normal and the facial swelling was gone.

The abscess flares up now and then. At the first sign of discomfort I apply the castor oil and the abscess never gets too painful at all.

FORGET THAT ROOT CANAL & SUPER SORE SWOLLEN JAW!

Abscess tooth WITH SUPER SORE swollen jaw.

This recipe is famous for getting that abscess down (even beneath a crown tooth)
3 parts Slippery Elm, 2 parts baking yeast, 4 drops cloves, 1/3 teaspoon cayenne pepper, and open two activated caracole capsules and mix..

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, and charcoal, draws out the inflammation, the cayenne stimulates the cells around the tooth to release toxins and the cloves are added as a pain remedy, especially toothache. repeat every three to four hours as needed.

NEXT: Back it up by taking two capsules of turmeric in the AM and also two in the PM..TILL SWELING AND PAIN GO AWAY.

MAN MY TOOTH WAS SO SORE THAT I COULD NOT CLOSE MY MOUTH (ate soup and mash potato's) AND (DAY ONE) WITHIN HOURS I GOT SUCH RELEIF.......
AND BY THE END OF (DAY Three) totally healed!
INFECTION HAS NOT REOCCURED FOR OVER TWO YEARS NOW....
THANK THE LORD FOR NATURAL CURES.....

PS:
ALSO NOW DAILY AS A NATURAL ANTIBOTIC AND AS AN IMMUNE BOOSTER /ANTIOXIDENT
I MIX ONE HEAPING TEA-SPOON OF CAYENNE PEPPER INTO ONE CUP OF TOMATO JUICE AND DRINK IN THE AM AND ANOTHER CUP BEFORE BED IN THE PM.
THIS GREAT TASTING TREAT WILL GENTLY PURGE OUT YOUR WHOLE SYSTEM AND WILL ENHANCE YOUR TOTAL PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL HEALTH...(HEY GUYS IT HAS AN EFFECT ON US EVEN BETTER THAN VIAGRA)

PS: CANCER CELLS UNDER A MICROSCOPE HATE THIS MIX AS WELL!
BEST WISHES FOR BETTER HEALTH!

Truly we have to thank God for these natural cures. I were having some kind of tooth infection. I check EC found
the remedy you posted, must say it work like a charm since I did not want to call out from work. Had slippery elm bark used that instead of the powder, it worked fine it was instant relief. Going to try the tomato juice and cayenne pepper. Is this store bought juice or fresh press, please let me know?

Can someone clarify a little? In the first part of the recipe you reference parts, but the rest of the recipe is measurements. Is it 3 tsp.?

Thanks.

I have used cell salt no. 9 Mag Phos to relieve my mum's and my brother's toothache a few times. I crushed the tablet in some water and asked them to drink and hold it in the area of their tooth pain. Swallow it after a few minutes. The tooth pain subsided within minutes, sometimes as fast as when holding the solution in their month.

Once my brother had an excruciating tooth pain which shoot up to his head. He said that your tears will just rolled down automatically from the intensity of the pain. I dropped a few drops of flower essence into his decayed wisdom teeth and set an intention for the flower essence to heal him in his highest good and the severe pain also subsided within minutes. The flower essence I used is made from the painkiller plant.

Lastly, there was another time where I applied Aura Soma Physical Rescue oil to his cheek where his tooth pain was located. I poured some oil onto my palm and just rubbed onto his cheeks. Then, I placed my palms on his cheeks and send healing prayers to his decayed tooth. And his pain also subsided within minutes. Intention and Faith seems to be very important. Combined with the appropriate "tool", it can work miracles! Hope my above experiences can help others.

I have used clove oil several times for an infected tooth. I live in a very rural area, so there are no stores that carry clove oil. I mix ground cloves and canola oil to make a loose paste. I put the mixture on with a q-tip and within minutes the pain is gone. Usually the swelling along with the pain are gone in a few days after a few applications each day.

Do you moisten the teabag before you use it or use it dry?

I had a abscessed tooth that was giving me fits. This is what worked for me. 2-3 oz. of very warm water, add 2 tablespoons of 10ppm colloidal silver and only 6 drops of DMSO. Swish this around your bad tooth. I try to keep it in my mouth about 2-3 minutes then spit it out. Keep doing this till you have used all the water mixture. Do this 2 times a day and in 2-3 days the infection and pain will be gone. It really worked for me.

I know this is older, but maybe someone can answer...

I have read several posts about using colloidal silver for abscess teeth and most talk about spitting it out after. Why?

With oil pulling you are drawing out toxins and therefore want to spit, but silver is healthy taken internally as well and this procedure of swishing is not to draw out but rather to deposit the silver in and around the teeth and gums. Even if you do draw out some impurities, the silver is antibiotic and antiseptic anyway.

So, why on earth spit out perfectly good silver?

Thanks

Maybe because some say that colloidal silver can add to heavy metal load in some individuals.

You still need to spit because at this point, it is NOT perfectly good silver anymore. It's contaminated with whatever impurities you are swishing out. If you have a infection, why swallow what leaks out? It's only a tablespoon that you need to swish anyways. Coconut oil and silver serving great to take internally but both, or anything you swallow, should be fresh and not used for oral health first.


Dental Abscess Remedies

Folks, recently discovered not so painful soft "lump" on outside upper back tooth. This tooth has been bothering me for couple of months. Very painful for a couple of weeks and then no pain. I know it will need to come out very soon. Question is: how to mitigate and even eliminate this infection. I pull EVOO at least twice a day and have for more than 6 months. My overall health is excellent (65yrs). Like I said I know this tooth needs to come out and I want to eliminate this abscess before I go in (if possible)... Thanks for any info. ThomasM

MADDTOM from Colorado: I really like posts like yours because I have a lot of experience now with good results re my teeth to pass on. I am a senior with ALL my teeth except one I lost many years ago. Even in that case I should have known better but thanks to EC I have a completely new and far more effective tooth care regimen which empowers me to know what is in my mouth and to keep business away from my health.

Recently I saw a dentist after years and the first thing was that he expectd me to accept fluoride. Then, when I told him that when I was much younger a very well respected dentist who taught a a university, sent a piece of mercury down my gullet, saying:don't swallow it! When I told this dentist about it, He mentioned that it probably "went right through. Hmm! Very casual attitude.

I have now been oil pulling for about two years. At the beginning there was a molar that felt loose and the dentist said it had to come out. Then I found: http--paradisenow.net-healing. That changed everything. Oil pulling had given me a fresh breath daily, a clean and healthy tongue and probably detoxed my system without any trouble. It also fixed the loose tooth more firmly in its socket. I don't like to lose a tooth since it has such an effect on the facial features. Oil pulling had also brightened my teeth somewhat.

However, thanks to the site above, I am now trying to heal a cavity on my front tooth. My gums that had always been a problem, are looking really good and the previously exposed tooth necks are almost all right at the gum line, looking really good.

But now, to heal any cavity, I am using MMS (Jim Humble's website) and wow my teeth are getting actually white. I did not really expect that. I thought my yellow/grey teeth would never but they are really nice looking. I am working on some pockets and to eliminate possible sites of infection. I keep the MMS solution in my mouth for two minutes twice a day. If I forget it once, or I am too tired, I use Xytol in my mouth before falling asleep. Of course, I will not forget my oil pulling as it has an overall effect on the body which may vary with the individual. You will find that present practices of dental care are far from beneficial to ones health and thinking of the sums that have to be surrendered!

Anyway I am taking responsibility for my health and again thanks to EC have initiated more changes to the great improvement of my health. The sites mentioned also deal very well with abscesses and pain.

All the best! Om

Hello, can you tell me what MMS and EC is? I have an abscess that is apparently the result of a root canal from yrs ago. Its not painful but swelled up when I first noticed it. Now that its subsided a bit due to antibiotics I am wondering if I can actually get it healed up with out the recommended surgery thats going to cost 1500.00....

Thanks Chris

EC: MMS is the acronym for Miracle Mineral Solution (a supplement) and EC refers to Earth Clinic!

This is an aside from those who posted about treatments for tooth ailments. I go to the local college here in Toronto for hygenic treatment as well as fillings. Because this is a college, the fees are minimal, for the fillings it was $20 per filling. However the appointments are in 3 hour blocks because the students are working on you and have to be constantly evaluated by the instructors. If you have the time, it's a great cost saver.

Took my 9 year old daughter to the dentist and come to find out she had a gum abcess and infection in a tooth with a cavity. Of course their first recourse was to put her on antibiotics so they could pull the tooth 1 week later. I refused the antibiotics, nicely, but I still got the dirty look and the "note" on the file. So, my daughter and I were very determined to stop the issue in it's tracks... Just to prove them wrong if nothing else. This isn't for the lazy at heart... it's 7 days of killing an infection and keeping it killed.

First of all, NO sugar. She got whole grain bread maybe once per day, but not at all if we could get away with it, other than that, no grains. Pasturized dairy was cut way back to just cheese on occassion. That means no sodas or juices, water was the drink of the week. Whole, low sugar fruits are okay (apples, berries, melon), and of course veges.

Okay, now for the fun part: once per day she did a rinse of water with baking soda and peroxide (I never really measured it, just put some water - maybe 1/4 cup?? -- in a cup with maybe 1 tsp of baking soda and 1/2 tsp of peroxide or so). Twice per day she did a rinse of a commercial tea tree mouthwash with an extra 4 drops of grapefruit seed extract added. Each rinse is done after brushing the teeth.

Once per day, the infected area was sprayed with 2 squirts of colloidial silver, 10 ppm.

Every day she took supplements of:
Vitamin C, 1000 mg
Vitamin D 10-15, 000 IU
Chelated Zinc 100 mg
Oil of Oregano 45 mg (standardized to 70% carvacrol)
Olive Leaf 310 mg with 40 mg of powdered extract standardized to 18% oleuropein
Krill Oil for Omega 3's
A Garlic supplement for Immune support, though if I could have gotten her to take whole, crushed garlic I would have been happier.
And Alpha Lipoic Acid 100 mg

Definitely believe in leaving nothing to chance.

We started this regimen on a Monday afternoon when she got home from school, and by Wednesday she was totally pain free. The cavity itself lightened in color. We kept it up for the entire week, and by the time she got to the dentist for the extraction... Well, they were surprised. Looked at her file, looked in her mouth, asked her if there was any pain (she replied no, naturally), and then the super sweet assistant actually asked me how we did that. They confirmed that she was completely infection and abcess free.

Sorry for the lengthy post, but I always like to see amounts and directions... So hopefully this can help someone else :-)

Actually just rinsing with colloidal silver once per hour would have erradicated the infection in the tooth (you could also swallow 1 ounce of "clean" colloidal silver after the rinses), but all of the rest that this woman used for her daughter would be great for cavity PREVENTION.

NOTE: For pain during tooth infection, frequent swishing of peroxide (then spit), helps pain and infection. Do this at least an hour from the colloidal silver.

We are trying your recommendations with the doses changed slightly, seeing that my son is 6. He currently has two abscesses from two teeth that had dental work done on them (fillings) when he was 2. Can you tell me more information about the diet you followed? No grains, no sugar, we have decided to cut out fruit too. Did she just eat lots of veggies? Any grass-fed meat or free range white meat? Eggs? Any raw dairy? I ask this because it seems like the raw dairy makes the abscesses swell up more. Interested to see what worked for your daughter. Thank you!

Hello I have been using collodial silver as well. When you say infection in the tooth do you mean literally it will only kill it in the tooth or will this same protocol help it heal when it is in the root of the tooth as well? Thanks sincerelyn megan

Several years ago, I had an infection in the root canal linked to four upper front crowns. I went to the Dentist who gave me an anti-biotic, which seemed to clear it up. Two weeks later the infection returned worse than ever, so I decided to try Echinacea (purple cone flower). I made a tea with a teaspoon of the dried leaves with a pint of hot water in a small stainless steel teapot and simmered the concoction gently for about ten minutes until it had cooled enough to hold in my mouth. I held the warm liquid in my mouth, swishing it around my mouth for about ten minutes, once in the morning and again before I went to bed. On the third day the pain which had been somewhere under my nose had gone, and I had an abscess on my gum which burst later that day and quickly healed. With love as always.

My GO-TO For Any Toothache / Infection pain gone within hours

I was suffering really bad from a double toothache both back teeth, one up top, one on bottom, on same side, now when I say pain I mean excruciating like someone was drilling into my teeth with a super sharp drill or ice pick kind of pain. The first thing I tried was clove oil, on a scale of 1-10 it helped maybe a 4-5. Then I tried tea tree oil with maybe a 2-4 result. This was the first night needless to say I got very little sleep.

Then day 2 was worse until I noticed that keeping cool/cold water on the area stopped the pain as long as I left it on there and water was cool/cold. This was good until it was time to go to sleep which I was unable to sleep because of the severe pain that returned in seconds after the water warmed up or was swallowed. Well I ended up doing an all nighter sipping on cool/cold water back and forth to the fridge every hour or so to get another bottle water. went through a 24 pack of 16oz waters in 1 day then I was about to go to dentist to extract them and luckily they were fully booked with no openings for a few days which made me call my local herb shop to talk to Gene and he suggested echinacea and goldenseal. Which they had in my favorite form (loose herb), which I made into a tea. and within a few hours

BINGO!!! the pain went down by 2 thirds and by end of day all my pain was gone except for a little soreness in the area which finally cleared up in the following days. and needless to say I never got the teeth extracted I continue taking echinacea tea but goldenseal can only be taken for 7-10 days at a time because it is so powerful (please seek professional advise on dosage).

But I mix in a little goldenseal into my echinacea tea from time to time as a maintenance dose along with a good amount of red clover. All in all I have found my go to for any toothache/infection and I can keep my teeth for the chewing that I need them for.

I am so happy you found help in the herbs. I hope anyone reading your post will not consume 48 -8 ounce cups of water in 24 hours. Use ice if you need to chill the area. Some peoples kidneys are not capable of handling that much liquid...so I post this as a CAUTION.

Some other helps for dental pain are as follows:(try one)

Alpha lipoic Acid capsule, take with water. Or topical applications of one of these: Activated charcoal, turmeric, walnut hull, walnut tincture, baking soda, garlic, peppermint oil, salt, iodine, clove oil (very tiny amount)or spice, coconut oil, fish oil, olive oil, oregano oil or spice, wet tea bag and I'm sure there are more that give relief.

Keep your teeth by feeding healthy microbes that keep bacteria in check. Also keep minerals, water balanced, and the fat soluble vitamins through gallbladder health . Been learning the hard way.

I cured an abscessed tooth by taking a half teaspoon of echinacea/ goldenseal tincture every hour for the first day of a really severe toothache and holding spilanthes tincture in my mouth to dull the pain. I discovered the herb meadow sweet to be the best pain relief for the tooth. Within minutes of drinking a mild decoction of the tea the pain would be gone for hours. It was a long weekend and no hope for going to the dentist. I was suprised the next morning that the swelling was way down so I continued taking the echinacea/ goldenseal tincture. as the abscess subsided i decreased the dose, taking it every three or four hours the second day . I continued for a week taking 3 doses a day. At the end of that time I had no abscess . It was confirmed a few weeks later by xrays at the dentist. I also drank lots of water with a 1/2 fresh lemon or lime sqeezed into to it.

I have had an abcessed tooth off and on for a while. I have tried just about everything on it and found one of the best remedies to be eucalyptus tea bags. Put the tea bag in your mouth around the infected tooth and hold it in there as long as you feel necessary. sometimes I would sleep with one. When you take the bag out you can literaly see some of the infection on the bag that has been drawn out of your tooth.

Adrian,

When we use tea bags in the mouth, we find it easiest to at least dampen the tea bag first. With harder herbs especially, it will take a while for hard and dry herbs to become soft and comfortable in your mouth.

Often I put a tea bag in a mug and pour very hot water over it, just to cover it. After 5 minutes I drain the water and when the tea bag is cool, I use it in the mouth.

Fenugreek steeped into a tea / mouthwash cured abscessed teeth. I rinsed my mouth and then soaked a gauze pad and placed in in my mouth for an hour at a time and it drew the infection out of my system. Sometimes I had to open a little hole in my gums so it would drain. I had 10 abscessed teeth at one time and did this for many months. It helped me alot as I didn't have any medical coverage to go to a dentist myself. I still to this day recommend this to anyone with the same problem.

So I haven't tried the tea bag thing but I was wondering about poking a hole in the gums.... Does it matter where? What did you use to poke it

If the tooth is fully there I know itll come out the gums but what if my tooth broke and there may be a passage to drain out of, er I hope so at least, is that possible?

How many days did you wait til u poked a hole in it?

How long does it take to heal?

Does it just go away or keep coming back if everything does not come out the first time?

You do not need to poke a hole in your gums, I think it is unnecessary, just use DMSO It is a carrier it will carry whatever you want right into the infected site. Basically 1/2 teaspoon DMSO with whatever sterilizer your using I use MMS or Sea Salt, and 1/8 or 1/4 cup water and I just brush onto my gums and try to not get any on my teeth let it soak in for 20 minutes and rinse

Hi Chico. I was just wondering why on earth you would want to poke holes around a sore infected tooth? I cringe just thinking about it. Why don't you just simply put some Colloidal Silver on it? Or even Manuka Honey works, as well as Hydrogen Peroxide. I have stopped cavities with all 3 of these treatments! And not one them involve pain. Please give one of them a chance! Be well and pain-free.

Hi Lynn. You were asking how Colloidal Silver , Manuka Honey and Hydrogen Peroxide are used to stop cavities. When I use Colloidal Silver on a sore tooth, I usually will soak a cotton pad and keep it on the tooth for 30 seconds and then I gargle some more Colloidal Silver. When I use Manuka Honey, I just rub it in or on the sore spots. With Hydrogen Peroxide, I just simply gargle with it. These have all worked wonderfully for me and my family. I hope this helps!
