I’ve had more teeth / gums stuff, with my dentist prescribing a helping toothpaste – which turned out to have fluoride in it. It all felt like a low grade chronic infection, uncomfortable. Reiki could improve it, but it just wouldn’t seem to go away and stay away. And of course, in Louise Hay, teeth are about decisions.
Everything seems to come back to writing and the books that are in my head.
Nonetheless, I was asking for a solution, a cure, a fix. As often happens, I’ll get messages/mentions/see an ad/a friend will make a comment – all those recently were about MSM. I was at Clifton Natural Foods, looking for toothpaste, and found TriMedica’s Pure MSM toothpaste (they also make an MSM lotion). It felt wonderful – warm and comfy – better than any toothpaste ever.
So my search began in earnest. I looked it up here and there, checked out wiki, googled it and found some good alternative sites. My favorite, as always, is Prescription for Nutritional Healing. ‘Remarkable therapeutic properties’ was one of its first comments. And the list of dis-eases it affects is also remarkable. It detoxes, nourishes hair, skin and nails, relieves pain and inflammation, reduces allergy problems, promotes gastrointestinal health and aids immune function. Plus benefits for heatburn, arthritis (most sources mentioned joint improvements), lung problems, migraines and muscle pain. Seems like our food processing really damages MSM, which is naturally present in many foods, but not in our diets now.
I found Source Naturals tablets – remarkably inexpensive. Most good health supplements are, aren’t they? I gave the tablet a moderate chew – too big for me to swallow. The inflammation pain began to subside quickly. By the end of the first day, my whole mouth was – warm and comfy. I was amazed. Life is already back to better than normal, and I think I’ll put MSM on my list of stuff to take every day. I’ll keep you posted as I observe other good changes.
All the googling turned up the fact that the toxicity level is the same as water, but there are cautions to start slowly, to avoid too-rapid detoxification.
