I have been following this post thread for a long time, and was looking to see what others have to say, and I want to offer what I did to make my gums stop receeding:
-I tried uncle harrys approach, with bits of sucess. I still take Camu Cmau powder which is a must for gums. I take 2 tsp a day.
-I went to a dowser to find out all my food sensitivities, and I saw drastic improvemnts from elliminating those bad foods. I also noticed that when I have a yeast infection flare up, my gums are bad to. Do you have any yeast issues?
-I never eat anything prosessed such as sugar, white flour, etc..
-I eat raw veggies and an apple throughout the day to strengthen my gums. And I try to eat a salad too.
-Brush with Uncle Harrys tooth powder and/or Dr Christophers (herbsfirts.com) tooth powder (I prefer this stuff and only use uncle harrys once a week)
- I tried Tooth Soap, and I hated it. It made my gums worse! The Soap had gone rancid twice!!! Never again.
-I am not for xylitol. Sorry to those who love it.
-Get enough calcium and magnesium (I get mine from herb infusion, raw yogurt, greens, and Natural Calm Calcium.)
-Floss! I tried a water pik, and I stopped using it since it was such a pain. When I stopped, I didn't see any changes for worse, or good. Least I could say I tried that.
-And the number one key to stopping and healing receeding gums is: Use the Edgar Cayce formula called Ioxan. Swish with it every day. This is a must, must, must! If you don't do this, just forget everthing else. Using this stuff is amazing.
Now my gums are a light pink color, and firm, and not tender anymore. No more bleeding while flossing. I had dealt with gum issues for along time, and I am actually better. So there is light at the end of the rainbow!
