OK, I have my moments of compliance and my moments when I am not so compliant with the BTD. But almost always avoid the foods that are not good for my blood type. Every time when I am really compliant (just beneficials, no diary no wheat or grain products), my gums become very sensitive, even painful at times. This happens 3 or 4 days after completely avoiding any kind of grain and dairy products. There are times when brushing my teeth in the morning becomes painful. And this goes for weeks.
Is this some sort of a sign that I am missing something in my food? I wonder what makes my gums to become so sensitive?
Has anyone experienced the same thing?
Thank you.

I have the exact opposite problem.  When I eat more than a tiny amount of wheat my gums get really sore...be interested to read the replies you get.

I've been brushing my teeth with two drops of tea tree oil on top of my regular toothpaste (at the moment it's Burt's Bees Lavender Mint) for the past month or so, and notice that my gums are not as sensitive.

I have also noticed that when I go compliant for more than a day, my gums seem to go into recess and perhaps even sensitive.

I guess our bodies are using too much enegy to detox. So no more detox for me.

COQ-10 will help the gums.

Thank you New Hampshire Girl

From the link that Susana posted I read about Q10. I wonder about selenium and folic acid for Os. I have never used them.

Selenium: This powerful antioxidant has been
proven to block free radical damage to gum tissue.
Folic acid: Especially as a mouth rinse,  
dissolving 2 400mcg tablets of folic acid into
a shot glass of warm water, and swishing it around.

have your antioxidant levels checked. A simple,
inexpensive way to do that is the
Oxystress Test from NAP.

I've found that brushing is not satisfactory for keeping my teeth/gums/neck from hurting... I MUST floss daily in addition to brushing.  I don't know if this is because I am healing so I feel it now or ???!

Does anyone know if one is meant to rinse off the folic acid. I tried the folic acid rinse without rinsing afterwards and my mouth became very tender and it seemed as if my gums receeded more. I have not tried rinsing afterwards assuming it may make the folic acid rinse not effective.

I floss everyday, too. I use a Sonicare toothbrush and if I wait to floss until after I've brushed (I usually do it before), I still find crud between my teeth. Flossing is as important as brushing, I'd say. It's important to stir up those colonies of bacteria at least twice a day to prevent them from doing too much damage.

I do so too. But, when I eat bread/milk/sugar I have to brush before otherwise I have the feeling there is too much for 1 little tread.

I only floss at night. During the day I brush and then use a little brush in between my teeth.

the folic acid works great for me, Susana.

I know I wouldn t have this result if I had avoids in my diet.

Thanks    So it was probably hefty detox I was going through at the time.

One more question: I use a capsule, open it and disolve the contents in water. Could it be that my folic acid does not disolve properly?

One of the fantastic natural dental aids is baking soda.  Bacteria in the mouth thrive in an acidic environment.  These bacteria contribute to gum inflammation and recession, as well as plaque and decay.
After brushing your teeth, put some baking soda on your wet toothbrush and gently brush again with the baking soda.  Then while it is still on your teeth, floss between teeth to work the baking soda down into all crevices and around the gumline.  Then rinse and slosh with warm salt water to help shrink swollen tissues and further discourage bacterial growth.

Any time during the day that you eat anything, rinse your teeth with a mouthful of clean water.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Thanks for the reminder, Victoria. I'm going to put some baking soda is a jar right now for that very purpose.

If you try it and it works, dear Lola, will you report back to us?  I like sage about as much as I like cilantro!  *lol*

I do the rinse with aetheric oils: 15 drops of Lavender,15 drops of Niauli & 10 drops of Rosemary
that's an awful taste... I know but it helps tremendiously.....; I take 90 mg's of Q10 every day with almost 0- effects ....but I am habituated... so far....soon     I am that tired about gums and teeths and their trallala's that I think, better to get my calm then to continue like that....

My unsolicited 2 cents.

When I'm compliant, my gums feel worlds better.

Baking soda -blee-aach. More power to those of you not nauseated by the taste.
