Last week, I HAD an abscess tooth and a swollen cheek. I took a three-prong approach. First, I rinsed with salt water, followed by a hydrogen peroxide rinse. I followed up with the Garlic. I started by chewing garlic on the opposite side of the infection and swallowed it. I did this three times in about 24 hours. I also chewed raw with the infected tooth about five or six times over 48 hours. I left it in my mouth as long as I could as it burns. My abscess and my swelling were gone in 48 hours. Not to mention the toothache and blinding headache that came with it. This stuff works. Please try if you are in pain and suffering.
Hello, on day 3 of excruitiatinly painful, very swollen tooth abcess. When it got bad and swollen and couldn't sleep, I called to work, did a video medical call to get a dr note for 3 days and went all out on the remedies.
Every hour 1st day 1 garlic clove. Maybe slight relief, but did not get worse, so I still had hope.
I added salt water rinse, bentonite clay slippery elm with white oak bark powder also activated charcoal and a little pinch of cayenne mixed together - did this 20 mins to an hour about 4 times this day.Note after the first bentonite clay mixture pack on the inside of my mouth and the outside where it was swollen, the swelling changed and got bigger, but the pain had stopped throbbing, still intense but slightly better so I still had faith to continue. Full disclosure I did fill the antibiotic prescription incase I needed it, but gratefully did not need it. I then did oil pulling with coconut oil and a couple drops of Doterra On-Guard essential oil - I did that 2 x the first day 20-30 mins.
I did something every hour along with the garlic clove, which I rushed and ate - an herbalist told me eating a clove of fresh raw garlic is equivalent to a dose of penicillin regarding the antibiotic properties. I also sprayed colloidal silver right on the tooth. Probably about 6 x total this day. I alternated the accompanying treatment with the garlic.
Other things I did was several drops of diluted in olive oil oregano essential oil. Yes it burns, but provides relief. I have molecular hydrogen tablets, I drank that in water 2 x this day. Also I began fasting the day before, because the I felt the pain that day. This whole time I "fasted", the only things I consumed other than water for these 4 days has been these supplements, in hopes to speed this process of healing along. I used a few drops of iodine directly on the tooth. I used about a 1/2 teaspoon of ACV and a pinch of cayenne directly on the tooth and swish and hold and spit. I found this relieved the pain significantly for about 20 mins, which was awesome. I also did not take pain killers at all because I wanted to keep my liver as healthy as I can. Honestly I did have the advil bottle out and picked it up a few times but then prayed and kept the faith. I also used tea tree oil, lavender oil and frankincense oil very frequently, maybe 20 mins at a time since it was much more calming than the oregano and I was starting to get a little raw feeling. I kept alternating all these every hour. (But did the garlic every hour).
That evening I saw Dr schulze tooth and gum formula and put a few drops of that on the tooth, it stung for about 30 seconds and then a lot of relief from pain for about 20 mins or more. Yay! I did that a few more times this day before bed. I couldn't sleep at all so kept doing the remedies all night. Also drand about 2 tablespoons of turmeric powder about 5 times throughout the day. Alternated with 20 minutes of ice, heat and then ice again in the eve before bed. The swelling was very bad, my lip was hard and everything hurt. At 3 am I got the thought that my garlic is not fresh enough! It was about 2 weeks oil in my fridge, and who knows how old from the store.
At 7 am I got new garlic and thank God it was pretty fresh. I used this now every 20 minutes to hit it hard the second day. from 7:30 am til 4 pm I literally took a clove of garlic every 20 minutes and did an accompanying treatment as I did the first day along with the garlic each time all day again.I added a dose of liposomal vitamin c liquid every 20 mins today. Also salt water rinses a few times and a couple of peroxide rinses. Oil pulling again once today. Three hours into the new garlic and I saw the swelling going down, the swelling changed too, was traveling down my neck and the pain was changing too, slightly less as the day went on, so still had faith. Finally at 4 pm the pain stopped!! Thank you, God!! I eased up on the remedies and only did two more treatments before bed, slept! Woke up on day three with a little pimply stuff on my lip. I don't care, it has to come out. I still have swelling but much better, and the pain in the tooth hasn't come back. The small pain in the cheek and the swelling and the gum rawness are nothing compared to that tooth pain. I brushed, and did the tooth and gum formula in the morning, garlic but I am only going to do 4 cloves total like a normal antibiotic dose would be today. I am continuing the Lipo Vit C very high doses today in divided doses.
I am so grateful that it is getting better and the pain has subsided! I hope I can help someone with this. It is a holiday weekend and nothing is open to even set an appointment until Tues but I am relieved of the pain so I can relax now. Bless you and I hope you heal quickly! The garlic should be pretty wetish when you crush it, if its drier and rubbery it is way to old to use medicinally in a serious time like this.
Garlic for mouthwash. I have to use this periodically because I have very bad teeth from being a soda junkie.
What I do is put a whole bulb of garlic and about 16oz water in a blender cup and let it run for a while. Strain, and then use throughout the day as mouthwash.
If I didn't do this I would need antibiotics on a regular basis..and quite frankly I prefer a day of garlic breath to a week of antibiotics.
It clears everything right up pretty quickly. My whole mouth could be inflamed and within a couple hours there is no more pain, no more swelling, and no more infection.
Allicin has DMSO like properties that go right through skin/flesh and kill infections.
I've been quite fortunate with my teeth, insofar as I have only ever had to visit a dentist once. I had an abscess on an impacted wisdom tooth and a cracked molar which was begining to show signs of decay. After he had prescribed antibotics for my abscessed tooth, he informed me that given its position (I have a lot of overcrowding in the rear of my mouth) it would have to be extracted under general anaesthetic. When I came back to him a week later, abscess having cleared up, he extracted my cracked, partially decayed molar, as he'd told me that it was gone beyond the stage where a filling would have sufficed. Then, as soon as he had taken it out, he told me that the roots were healthier than he'd previously thought, and that it could have been saved with a filling. I was really upset over that, as I take good care of my teeth and didn't fancy the prospect of losing one, I brush and floss twice daily and use a good mouthwash. Not only that, but my extraction was a complete nightmare, I bled out for so long that the dental nurse had to pack and repack my gum for over an hour. I continued to bleed, though not as heavily, till seven o' clock the next morning, and by that stage I was weak and feeling ill, somewhat traumatised, and very upset. As the dentist was abrupt and not at all sympathetic, and given my first impression of dentists in general, I swore that I would never go back. Just a little background, so everyone understands my dentist phobia, sorry if it was a little long winded.
Anyway, last Christmas, I cracked my left premolar whilst eating a hard centred sweet. There were no signs of decay, but the nerve had been a slightly exposed. I took care not to allow any food into it, but refused to go anywhere near a dentist for a filling. Then, last week, I was eating crisps (potato chips to Americans :-)) and a sharp end of crisp went right down into my exposed nerve. I actually cried out when it happened, as it had sent shockwaves of pain all throughout the left side of my face. It subsided, but the next morning it was niggling, which got grandually worse as the day wore on. Two days later, the pain was persistant - very much like the symptoms of trigeminal neuralgia. I went to the pharmacy and bought a temporary filling which I put in myself, hoping that it would be enough to kill the pain. No such luck. It got progressively worse and the whole gum swelled. My mother told me to make an appointment with the dentist, as she believed that an abscess was forming, but remembering my last experience, I refused to go.
Instead I turned to home remedies and painkillers. Clove oil offered temporary relief in the beginning, but as the swelling grew, it had little effect. I tried oil pulling, which calmed it initially, but then seemed to make it worse. I rinsed with salt and water, but it made no great difference. The only thing that offered an, oh so brief, respite, was cold water. I was in total agony, and so desperate that I took to swishing alcohol around the efffected area, which only burnt my gum and inflamed it more.
Desperate and driven mad with pain, I searched online and found this site. Just last night I tried the garlic remedy.
I cut a clove in half and placed each on either side of the effected tooth. It stung like hell and I almost collapsed from the pain, but I persisted. I then chewed the clove on the effected side - still burning like crazy - then swallowed the juice and spat out the chewed clove. Last night was the worst of all. I actually cried with pain as I felt something pulsating within my gum. Today, when I went to lie down, as I hadn't slept all night due to the pain, I felt one excruiating blast of agony, then my mouth began to fill with a sticky substance, which brought immediate relief. The abscess had burst. I took care to spit out the pus - there was a lot of it - and rinse my mouth with salt and water.
Thankfully, apart from a little tenderness in the gum and the nerves in my lower jaw, the pain has gone and the swelling has disappeared, and this I attribute to the garlic. I have now been pain free all evening and all night, so yes, garlic really does work. It did what clove oil, oil pulling, alcohol (not recommeded, as it burns the gum, but I was desperate), salt and water by itself, a near overdose of ibuprofen and paracetmol (not recommended either) failed to do; it got rid of the abscess and relieved my pain. The pain I experienced on applying it was well worth it, so, yeah, I would strongly, going by personal experience, urge you try this if all else has failed, as it really does work.
Garlic is the best remedy on the market. I have tried everything you could possibly try to get rid of this toothache I have bad teeth and I can't afford to go to a dentist because I don't have the insurance. The pain I had in my mouth was so bad that I couldn't even sleep. I wanted to punch myself in the face and knock myself out cuz that's how bad it was. So I look up remedies and I came across this remedy with the garlic. I had garlic cloves in my refrigerator and I went and did what the directions said to do - I peel the garlic and rinsed it with warm water I had to crush it because I couldn't chew it because my teeth are that bad as soon as I put it in my mouth it burnt like hell I was running around trying to hold it in my mouth as long as I could. I can feel the numbness in my mouth and the pain was gone so if you can handle the burning in your mouth this is the best way to go and I'm going to continue using it until the pain is absolutely gone.
Garlic was a lifesaver for me! I have bad teeth, many broken due to severe anemia during pregnancy (I was constantly chomping away on ice). I've been dealing with severe dental pain due to this for a few years now. I have no insurance because my employer provided insurance premium was far too expensive for barely any coverage at all (especially dental). Anyhow my tooth conveniently started aching in the late hours of the night preventing me from getting any sleep. I had taken more ibuprofen than recommended daily (not recommended), used orajel, ambesol, and other OTC numbing solutions with no success. Around 2:30 a.m. I began researching out of desperation for relief and stumbled upon Earth Clinic. I read the information about raw garlic and began reading reviews from others that really made me hopeful. I fortunately had some fresh raw garlic on hand and figured I had nothing to lose at this point.
I cut one clove, washed with warm water and placed it on the affected gum/tooth. Like the others stated, it burns like hell so I kept it on as long as I could stand (about 5 mins) then I ate what was left of it. Now, 3 hours later the pain is GONE and the inflammation has reduced significantly. Awesome and effective remedy that I am so grateful for!
I have been suffering from a tooth/gum abscess recently and the garlic treatment worked so well, Nothing else even touched the pain, Yes it is very painfull when you first apply the Crushed garlic, but the relief afterwards was heaven....
Wow wow wow, I have been suffering from toothache for over a week now and the pain has got worse day by day. The pain I have suffered today has been unreal. Not to sound disgusting but I have had a spot inside my left nostril for around 2 weeks....could this be linked?? Anyway been reading the reviews on Garlic and had to try, its only garlic right? I cut a clove in half and crunched my way through for about 5 mins....the pain went but that could of been the burn! After 10-15 mins the pain was still there but not as bad. Took the plunge and decided to just split the other half and place it on the outer part of my gum where the pain is and let it sit for around 10 mins, oh yes it burns!! Hey while its burning there is no pain!! I eventually swallowed the half clove and I am now sitting in comfort and not wanting to punch myself in the face because of pain. Don't get me wrong I still have a dull ache which is bearable, but nothing like the pain I have been in today. I will continue for 3 times a day until I feel pain free much to the disgust of my colleagues at work. A grumpy miserable employee or a stinking one for a couple of days, they will go for the latter!! GARLIC I LOVE YOU!!!
I AM 85 AND HAD 6 DELTAL IMPLANTES AND FEW WEEKS LATER it because infected PERI-IMPLANTITIS; I am 100% allergic to Penicillin and after taken all the antibiotics the pus was endless... I used my common sense because GARLIC is everything in my cooking I chopped it fine and the juice with my little finger a rubbed well in the guns and felt it becoming NUMBED and the INFECTION was gone for the doctor amazement... GARLIC IS A BLESSED medicine right under our nose... I FEEL YOUNGER FOR MY AGE AND NOW WITH GARLIC I will writing more REALITIES BOOKS as now I can eat and smile like a young man physically... THANKYOU FROM MY HEART
I felt a tooth abscess coming on and immediately went to Earth Clinic. Got no further than the garlic remedy. Cut a big clove in half and applied it to the tooth. I bit down on it and kept it there for 10 minutes. Burned somewhat but the pain is gone. Will repeat tomorrow as insurance. Thank you Earth Clinic and all you wonderful contributors.
I think I may have a possible tooth abscess. Trying to avoid going to the dentist. If it gets any worse I will go but in the meantime the natural route seems the way to go. I have been eating and using garlic on my supposed abscess for 2 days. Once in the morning and once at night.
I took about a 1/4 or 1/2 a garlic clove (crushed) and put it in a ripped piece of coffee filter (I was out of cotton balls to soak up garlic juices) and held it in the corner of my mouth for about 15-20 min. I also have been oil pulling with coconut oil for roughly 15 min. So far so good. The swelling and pain have reduced. I changed things up and actually chewed a piece of garlic. I thought I was going to die. The burn felt like a firecracker going off inside my mouth. I had tears and was stomping around. I got through it but found chewing it had a different effect. The pain was numbed more thoroughly and it penetrated the sore more effectively in my opinion. You have to have some grit to get through the pain, burning, stinging, and strong taste but it's worthwhile.
I can't believe this actually worked!
I woke up yesterday, 1/30/16 in PAIN! Now, I don't do that.. pain to me is hardly ever enough to make me tear up, but I was HURTING! Tried a hot water bottle, a hot shower, and coconut oil. Nothing worked. I'm one of those crazy people who can't take a pill. I have had so many adverse reactions to medications, I refuse to take anything that is OTC or prescribed. I have severe psoriasis also.. Anyways... I had these lumps on my gums that were killing me! I looked for the best home remedy and came across this garlic thing. I am still wowed!
I ALWAYS have fresh garlic on hand, LOVE the stuff! So, I first started off with the "eat a clove" idea. Uh, NOPE! WAY too painful! So then I sliced a clove in several little pieces and placed them where the swelling was. I was happily surprised to notice that the pain went away almost immediately, after the burn. Then, I put a peppermint tea bag (hot) over the big bump and instantly felt this "relief" of pressure.. then spat into the trash can only to see the nastiness release... Later on in the evening, I had more garlic and way less pain! As I was talking on the phone with my daughter, I noticed another "relief" and had to start spitting, again. The blood and pus were flowing.. it was pretty nasty! I finished the night by rinsing my mouth with a well known mouth wash and peroxide then brushing with coconut oil.
My mouth hasn't felt this great in a long time! Thank you EC!!!
Garlic really DOES work for a tooth abscess. It takes 2 to 3 days for it to absorb into your system totally but anyone saying that it doesn't work, didn't use it. You can't just take a garlic pill and expect it to work. You have to use minced or sliced garlic and the swallow it for it to work. You also can't just put a little bit of it in your mouth for 20 minutes and then spit it out and expect a miracle. For anyone to say that it made any infection worse is full of crap. ALL bacteria and ALL viruses, (including all forms of cancer), cannot stand up to raw garlic. They get blindsided by it and die from it. I use it on cuts and infections and they ALWAYS go away. It's NOT different for any individual. It works on everyone the same way. And that means chew it up and swallow 1 tablespoon every 4 hours for at least 7 days for an abscess.
It will take a lot longer for cancer but you have to take it for a lifetime once it's gone, just not near as much and not every day. It also is a mild pain relivier, an appetite suppressant, and helps you lose weight by giving you a higher metabolic rate.
I am American, living in China. I have typical redneck teeth just like the rest of my genetically linked family. Two days ago, for the 4th time in the past 12 months, a massive tooth ache flared up, with swollen gums and glands...Abscess. I wanted to stop breathing on account of tooth pain. I don't do dentists or doctors so I have always just taken the pain. With unhealthy doses of whiskey and ibuprofen.
Today I found Earth Clinic. I just completed my garlic chew. (I followed the directions on your site exactly). I chewed until the clove was pulped (<20 seconds) and then I spit it out. (I did not chew for minutes and minutes like other reviewers reporting side effects.) The pain left immediately. That was 25 minutes ago and still not returned. Also, the swelling beneath my jawbone and under my tongue reduced by, my estimate, 40 - 60%.
Wow. Will report back results and any needed re-treatments tomorrow.
I will tell u my story with tooth abcess, first I got tooth abcess since my pregnancy after delivery I went to dentist she told that she make surgery as I have already and she doesn't want to damage the crown but I have to wait until she comeback front her vacation (1month).
Well I was so scared that I start searching on websites and I found about garlic and pomegranate powder! I start by crushing garlic it was so painful my tooth abcess was only red but after crashing garlic I observed small yellow spots.I continued using garlic and even was painful but I was happy that it's working after day after I put pomegranate powder on the red area and believe after 10 minutes the area becomes green was shocked I ringed my month with peroxide and greenn becomes white. I continued the process and on the 3 day, my half face become like balloon I was scared but I continued with eating garlic and putting pomegranate powder.
The day 4 my face become normal and all the yellow disgusting thing become small spot . Was so happy and proud of my self I continued putting pomegranate peel on my teeth and crashing garlic but less than before.
4 days later I when drinking hot tea with cinnamon I feel another tooth reacting. So I start putting garlic on the gum were tooth was hurting only with hot drinks and I put pomegranate peel guess what! Another green area appears. Same process, my side of my face right now is puffy. But I am not scared at all because I know it's killing bacteria inside the tooth ( this tooth has filing).
I'm so happy to find out how garlic and pomegranate peel just change my life .please try it u will not regrets I'm waiting another week to make x ray will let u know hhhh and I want to see my dentist face searching for abcess!? Just trying to write in English so excuse my English
