Use oregano oil direct on your gums and also in the bottom of your feet then wear socks, just do it for 3 days

Jaw/dental issues can be overcome without a dentist just as brain issues can be overcome without a brain surgeon.


Oil Pulling and Colloidal Silver
Posted by Tracy (Tx) on 03/24/2015

I have read that "oil pulling" will help draw out infection, even from a tooth that is said to need a root canal. I would suggest that you add a couple of drops of other essential oils to the oil that you are using for "oil pulling", particularly those known for having antibiotic, antiseptic & anti-bacterial properties. Both grapefruit seed oil extract & garlic oil are antibiotic. Oil of Oregano is another good example. Clove Oil will help with any pain. Research the properties of various essential oils & try a few drops or combination of drops each time you "oil pull".


Oil Pulling and Colloidal Silver
Posted by Om (Hope, Bc Canada) on 03/19/2015

Dear Linda --- at the present moment I am treating three abscesses, one of which has the root below the nostril. I am out of DMSO which I use with colloidal silver, so when someone posted on EC that she was using castor oil, I started to use it immediately and it is noticeably getting better. I am deeply grateful for this info. However, even when healed, I will continue for some time.

I never see a dentist as I wish to keep my teeth and originally I was put on the right path by reading online HEALING TEETH NATURALLY. There is no way I would consider a root canal after informing myself of the consequences and huge amounts of $$$.

I have been oil swishing for years but have mouth trouble. I am going to use a mouthwash for swishing later in the day, using Lugol's iodine, Celtic salt and water. Just two drops LI.

The other things I do is use black walnut tincture for swishing to build up tooth enamel. There is a variety of things that work. So now I am massaging gums and the roots of teeth and it looks promising.

Hope you make out right. Namaste, Om


Oil Pulling and Colloidal Silver
Posted by Linda (Euless, Texas) on 03/19/2015

I would like an opinion on my situation. I have a tooth that abscessed and my jaw was terribly swollen. I went to the dentist and was given Amoxcillin and referred to an oral surgeon. I am scheduled for an extraction for next Tuesday. I have oil pulled for a week and am on third prescription for Amoxcillin. I want to cancel the extraction. I told the dentist about the oil pulling and he said (1) he had never heard of it and (2) that the infection is in the tooth, not in the mouth, so if I continued to just oil pull I would never get to the infection - that my tooth needed either a root canal, that I can't even afford or that it needed to be pulled. Is his statement true? He doesn't want me to wait too long before having it pulled. I, on the other hand, don't even want the tooth pulled IF it is possible to cure the infection underneath the tooth in the gum.

Will oil pulling and continuing to use Colloidal Silver get to the infection that he says is in the tooth itself? It is feeling much better now after a little over a week of the oil pulling. and colloidal silver - there is mild pain and I use the colloidal silver for the slight pain I have still. I am just concerned about whether the oil pulling and colloidal silver will cure all the infection.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Garlic

Well, I woke up from a nap Friday night with a toothache, which is a rare event, thankfully, for me. Anyhow, as in my neck of the woods there aren't many dentists - and NONE open til Monday, tomorrow, when I still may not be able to get seen, I decided to try some of these remedies. I'd known about clove oil, sea salt water, and tea bags and tried the last two (I didn't have any clove oil on hand). I got some very temporary relief from the salt water and almost none from the tea bag. Anyhow, a few hours ago, awake again and in pain down into my jaw, I decided to look around here for what I could find.

After rinsing with ACV and then chewing some raw garlic clove, the swelling is down a bit and it doesn't hurt nearly as much. I'll continue it and am still going to a doc, dentist, or the ER if I have to for antibiotics in the morning as I KNOW this can get bad if untreated. Also, I just took some zinc as it has both immune boosting and antibiotic properties, if I remember right.

Castor Oil

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.

Those darn receeding gumlines...msm kicks the infection and heals the gum, use both msm cyrstals in the mouth at bedtime and tablets during the day. GO SLOW and fix those receeding gumlines, it's part of our collagen mix, missing in most diets.

I had a huge abscess on my tooth and was in terrible pain. I decided to gargle with ACV and literally as I was gargling I was feeling the abscess with my tongue and I could feel it softening! After I spat out the vinegar I started noticing the abscess was draining, which alarmed me because I didn't want the bacteria getting in to my body. I decided to just keep spitting as much as I could without purposely swallowing the bacteria. Within an hour of using the Apple Cider Vinegar gargle, my once huge abscess was now flat!!! I'm still going to make a dental appointment but What a Relief!


Cashews

I have found that the anacardic acids in raw cashew nuts and maybe mangoes do an excellent job of curing an abscess from gram positive bacteria, which are the most prevalent cause of tooth decay and tooth aches. It is conceivable that mango fruits may have sufficient anacardic acids as well. You may see my article on this subject at; http://charles_w.tripod.com/tooth.html. It is also discussed briefly in the 2006 edition of Medical Hypotheses, 65; 289-292.

You may feel free to use any information in that URL without concern over copyright.

I would like to urge you to explore making these medicines available in the pure form from pharmacies. This would be especially valuable since these medicines would probably prove to be valuable against other gram positive diseases such as acne, leprosy, streptococci, Chlamydia trachomatis, and maybe even tuberculosis as well.

Sincerely, Charles Weber

Yes. Peppermint oil worked and fast! To substantially reduce pain. Had a bad toothache develop in an old wisdom tooth that I really need to have pulled. Tried numerous remedies to get the pain down. Started with coconut oil pull, iodine drops on the tooth area, tried sea salt water, clove oil/cloves. Didnt get the pain down much. Pulled out some peppermint extract, put some on the gum/tooth area, pain went down quite nicely, esp in the gum. Thankful.

I don't know what to do about my mouth issues. I have a cavity in my molar and the corner of my tooth broke off, exposing the gum below it. I started oil pulling. It was okay for a few days and then my mouth around that area started to ache. I put clove oil on it and it helped the pain almost immediately. Then my gums around the tooth started swelling and I now have a few pockets of puss. I've tried garlic, tea tree oil, clove oil, oil pulling, bentonite clay, hydrogen peroxide and it doesn't seem to be healing. I don't know how serious this is. I also don't know if it takes time to get rid of the infection or if I'm not being aggressive enough. I really don't feel like chewing another clove of garlic, it burns!

Teresa: To help your body detox sulfur supplement Molybdenum. For the infection swish Povidone Iodine or Colloidal silver w/ added Hydrogen Peroxide drops, and do Coconut Oil pulling. For further improvement w/ the infection a Don Croft Mini Zapper will help a bunch.

As you are entering a toxic crisis I would also recommend a whole body hot bath w/ 1/4 cup Epsom Salts & 1/4 cup Borax (you will first need to take the MolyB for about 10 days because the Epsom Salts contains lots of sulfur) at least once per week. For the Cancer, reduce sodium and increase Potassium, Lipospheric Vit-C twice daily; Oil of Oregano softgels prior to retiring.


Jaw Bone Infection Remedies

What dentist did you finally go to? I had 2 roots canals removed by my biological/holistic dentist, and now am having a great deal of pain in my jawbone, neck and throat, ears, and now affecting my vision (which an opthalmologist says is 20/20 - inflammation is coming from behind the eyes). My dentist took an xray that didn't show infection, and keeps trying to send me to a naturopath for IV DMSO. Unfortunately DMSO is sulfur, and I cannot tolerate sulfur, not even sulfur foods. I don't detoxify well (50-70% impairment) due to genetic mutations, so I have to be very careful what I use or ingest. I was also recently diagnosed w breast cancer, which corelates back to those root canal teeth (thyroid & breast meridians), and also have multiple nodules on my thyroid and salivary glands. I am now on a raw food diet (sprouts & veggies, veggie juices, and some fruits). I've been a painful swollen mess for several months and don't know what to do to get rid of this infection.

Usually when I got an abscess I went straight to antibiotics. It happened accidentally when I purchased a bottle of mouth wash with tea tree oil in it, while I already had the abscess but not to cure the abscess just for overall oral health. Any case I had this abscess and was planning to go to the chemist to get antibiotics. I was using the bottle with tea tree oil in it, and in 2 days my abscess was gone, not sure what it does but I use it daily.

Hi all....I am a sceptical about everything unless I have proof lol. I just have to share my story about last night. I lost a pretty good size filling about two months ago. Yeah yeah I went to the dentist and he said it either has to be pulled or you need a root canal and crown. I was thinking on the 2 because the 1st option is cheapest. I've been thinking on the issue for far to long now. Like its 2 months later. Well I started brushing my teeth with Activated Charcoal out of the little capsules that you buy at the drug store. (My smile is whiter now) hehe ok last night my tooth that I have been thinking about started throbbing ouch. 4am I am still awake hurting like $#%T. Throbbing tooth ache. I took some of the Act. Char. and mixed it with a few drops of brandy! Pain makes u try anything. I made a paste and soaked a very small piece of gauze in it. Kept packing the tooth and in 45 mins to an hour my pain was gone. How this happens I do not have a clue. But it happened and hey I'm all the better for it. I am going to call my dentist soon. I might just pay the 40.00 to get another x-ray just to see if the infection is gone before he pulls my tooth. Thanks everyone for listening.

I had a severe tooth abscess that I accidentally cured with zinc lozenges. I lost a filling last year and after being tortured by food getting into the space where the filling was I intentionally cracked off part of my tooth (not too bright). this resulted in some sort of infection and I had a tooth abscess on and off for about a month. it got real bad and I decided to take some zinc lozenges. I had heard that zinc lozenges kill mouth bacteria and can kill the bacteria that cause a strep throat ... so I took four. each lozenge had 24 mg. zinc, 1000 IU vit A, and 150 mg vit C. the abscess came to a head and it was over by the fourth lozenge. I don't know if it was the zinc, but zinc is a very powerful antibacterial metal, and I think it immobilized the bacteria in the mouth.

Jaw Bone Infection Remedies

I had a root canal gone bad. I was aware of how dangerous root canals are , so I had it extracted and the dentist put a bone graft right over an hidden brewing infection that was in my jaw bone. For a couple years I suffered the following symptoms : brain fog , light and movement sensitivty, tremors, shortness of breath, wheezing , weight loss, nausea, heart palpatations, memory loss, aching joints, chronic sore throat dizziness, brain swelling burning and dry eyes, blurred vision, hives, dry heaves , rash and general weakness. Very fortuanate to have loving supportive family. I had a million tests, and saw 4 holistic dentist they did not possess the knowledge to help me . I also had ultrasound, MRI and x-ray of my jaw and the infection did NOT show up . Finally I found an expert cavitation specialist who was an expert . Who went in and simply made incisions into all the extraction dental sites, all the sites were cleaned scaped, sterlized by laser. I had a serious necrosis jaw infection the bone was mushy, Cavitation dental surgery is way easier than an extraction it seemed pretty straighforward, simple easy procedure took two pain killer for two days and I was fine. Bone infection is just the first level have it addressed now , it can turn into gangrene which is the next level and then amputation. You see the seriousness of what you're dealing with, it is an medical emergency you must have surgery there is no other way to get into the jaw bone it is a closed blood system. I wasted my time with ozone injections, and poultices that did NOT addess the serious jaw bone infection. The sooner you have it addressed the sooner you get feel better.

I came on here recently in search of a way to naturally treat my tooth abscess and I am happy to say it worked!

I have a terrifying fear of the dentist, based on a history of tooth problems that started when I was a toddler. I was literally dragged into the dental chair by the assistant, slapped across the face by the dentist, then filled with silver fillings where I didn't need them. It went downhill from there over the years, so I try to avoid them, their massive expense, their fluoride and other poisons.

The abscess appeared in the back of my mouth, where I have a broken molar....thank-you sadistic silver filling dentist. The pain was excruciating!

This is the list of what I did for a week and so far, so good:

warm salt water rinses, wet tea bag over abscess, clove and/or peppermint oil on a cotton ball, brushing gently with baking soda (I don't use commercial toothpaste anyway), coconut oil pulling and a concoction I found somewhere on the net that I tweaked a bit....

the contents of 3 capsules of activated charcoal, 1 capsule of echinacea, a couple of dashes of cayenne pepper, a few drops each of peppermint & clove oils and some coconut oil.....mix it into a paste of sorts. I didn't measure, but eye-balled it until the consistency seemed right. You may want to use gloves because this is messy stuff. I placed it onto the abscess a couple of times per day. Coconut oil turns into liquid when it is warm, so I put a cotton ball in there to help keep it all in place.

Using a mix of these remedies...and a bit of ibuprofen...the swelling went down and the pain disappeared. I am still rinsing with warm salt water, oil pulling and placing a cotton ball with clove/peppermint oil on it once a day to make sure the infection is well and truly gone.

My abscess didn't exactly pop in the manner that many on here have described, but I did get some puss and blood at times as the swelling went down. It was a slower process, rather than the dramatic dam bursting I was expecting, but it worked. There is no pain, swelling or even much sensitivity there now.

I wish everyone luck in their quest to alleviate this pain as naturally as possible.

Love & Light :-)

Hi there, just curious if you are taking Fosamax or the generic drug for prevention of osteroporosis? A side effect of the drug is a condition called osteonecrosis of the jaw also known as jaw death. Both my mother and mother in law recently had teeth pulled due to this drug. Last spring my mothers femur broke due to this pill that was supposed to make her bones stronger! Needless to say neither women are taking this dangerous drug any longer.

Good luck to you! Sincerely, Debbie

It is wise to keep all body parts as much as possible. Swishing Colloidal Silver in the mouth will proly be your best first try for this infection. If this doesn't work, try swishing MMS (Miracle Mineral solution) as directed. Check Genesis II Church Of Health & Healing dot com for specifics.

Activated Charcoal
Posted by Mama To Many (Tennessee, Usa) on 01/24/2014

Dear Terri,

I don't know if the person who wrote the original post is still around on EC.

We have used charcoal and clove oil in the mouth. The process you suggest sounds fine. Charcoal doesn't taste bad. It doesn't have a taste; it is kind of gritty. Clove oil is strong, but effective. You can leave it in until it is washed out with our own saliva. You can repeat as often as needed.

Do not do this near the time you take prescription medications as the charcoal can adsorb them.

Let us know how it goes!

~Mama to Many~

I know you wrote about charcoal for tooth pain awhile ago, but I would like more info how to use it. The person at the health store said it would probably taste bad. Do you just use the contents of 1 capsule and a few drops of clove oil and put it on with a cotton swab? How long do you leave it on. Thank you!

Hi Britee, sorry I can't help answering your question because I haven't had that surgery myself (although I do have TMJ and a nerve damage in my face). I suggest you look up "Cavitation Surgery Forum" on Curezone, there's a lenghty tread about this treatment there and you are likely to find personal experience of people who'd been through this. Hope this helps. Oldriska

Bentonite Clay, Multiple Remedies
Posted by Riverlover (Nc) on 12/26/2013

Well after a month, I've come out on the other side from a tooth abscess where I allowed the infection to spread to my jaw. I thought I could keep working and just take some natural antibacterials to treat it. Not so. My jaw line became swollen, my tooth on the lower jaw was loose, and the pain was indescribably intense at one point.

15 years ago, I had an abscess, and I naively trusted my oral surgeon and allowed all of my upper teeth to be pulled at the age of 35. I just didn't know better. I will never trust dental professionals again, so I went after this on my own.

At first, I threw pretty much everything listed here at it. I took/applied lots of colloidal silver, oil of oregano, garlic, tea bags, turmeric and salt water, H202, and more. What finally helped me turn this around was Bentonite Clay. I got both the powder and the liquid clay. My cheek and gums were raw at first from all the treatments I'd been applying, but it didn't hurt, it just felt weird as it drew out the infection. I alternated between making a little putty with the powder and leaving between infected gun and infected cheek for 20 mins and doing bentonite swishes with the liquid for 10-15 mins. I did one of them once a day. Maybe I COULD HAVE DONE IT 2XS/DAY, who knows. But the swelling went down after the first day and disappeared after the 2nd day. at least externally. There was still some swelled pockets inside my mouth that went away after 4 more days.

The pain level diminished greatly. After using the clay, I first used 50/50 H20 & H202 to rinse. Then I switched to a periodontal wash I got at Whole Foods, with all sorts of good stuff in it. (golden seal, oregano, Gotu Kola, olive leaf, grapefruit seed, xylitol, chlorophyll, etc)

I apply a similar periodontal rub/gel on the gum before bed, after rinsing and brushing with a natural toothpaste.

I take 20K iu of Vitamin D3, 8K mg of buffered C, 400 mg Q10, molybdenum with 2 meals, and try to stay very hydrated. I think the most important thin I take hasn't been listed here and that's Olive Leaf Extract (OLE).

Look up this amazing antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, pain killing, liver-helping herb. I started this shortly after the clay. I try to take one ev 2 hours. Sometimes every hour. I will keep up with it for a while. There are no side effects.

Now, one month later, its -almost- like it never happened. The tooth is firm, I can eat & smile without pain, and I feel really good. I think this might have been a blessing in disguise. Its gotten me refocused on my health. The abscess has left behind a severely recessed gum however, so now my job is to remineralize the bone and tooth & try to rebuild the gumline. Hence the D3, Vit C, and Q10. As I understand, I'll also need some L-lysine & Threonine.

My fingers are crossed that the tooth in question isn't actually dead and has a chance at rebounding. I will update if it is in fact a goner & doesn't hurt anymore simply because the nerves are shot...

So anyways, I hope this helps someone out there, maybe bring about healing faster than a month! It was about a 7 day recovery once I began the clay treatment to draw the infection out. Blessed Be.

Pyrogenium (Homeopathic Remedy)

Homeopathy to the rescue again...... I have suffered with weak dental roots for years and have paid dearly for it.... and often found that the antibiotics the doctors used to help one tooth would harm another tooth... But after years of forking over hundreds of dollars for a root canal.... I finally found a miracle cure which dentists won't want you to know about... I haven't needed a root canal since. A few years back, after having to have a surgical root canal - because the dentist had broken off a tool in my root when he performed the initial root canal... I developed an infection after the surgery... my Dr. gave me Doxycycline for the infection... it stripped my digestive tract and turned it into "acid city"... Doxy was horrible and made me very acidic for the first time in my life. After a few days it still wasn't getting rid of the infection... I looked thru a book on "Dental Homeopathy" and found a little known remedy for tooth infections... Pyrogenium (9-12x or c)... Within one day the infection was gone. Now if I ever feel any twinging in a tooth that might mean I have an infection in my tooth... I immediately take Pyrogenium and the pain goes away... I've avoided a few expensive root canals thanks to Pyrogen.... Pass it on...

To show you how bad it is... my regular dentist sent me to an endodontist because he saw an irregularity in my root (this was many years ago)... the "expert endodontist" said I needed a root canal... He charged me $800 for it... When I went back to my regular dentist...he said there was still a problem... so I went back to endodontist... he proclaimed that it actually was a cracked root, not an infected tooth and the moron actually was going to make me pay him again to do a root canal.... I've pretty much given up on dentists and find my own cures... For $7.00 you can heal your roots not destroy them with a root canal... Also Calc Fluor is another homeopathy that claims to rebuild teeth... so you may not even need fillings... I haven't had a chance to try this but you might want to.
