Ever had a toothache, bleeding gums, inflamed gums, oral ulcers or sore throats?

Well that is what this article is all about. If you go to a dentist or an MD, they would likely give you anti-biotics. But we know anti-biotics also kill that the good bacteria in your gut that support your immune system. So that just leads to more problems – if the problem results from an infection. The inflammatory system is part of the immune system as well – so if it is about inflammation – well the anti-biotics may be detrimental there as well.

So what can you do?

Well let’s look at a few foods and herbs. Each option has the name of the primary compound recognized to do the work – although there are always several and remember nothing happens in isolate. The second item is the culture that is most recognized for using the option.
