Just think, your daughter travels all over the world and could shop anywhere for a wedding dress but she asked you to sew it for her. That request is straight from the heart. :heart
For anyone that's watched all 8 seasons of 24, which one is the best? From what I've read, general consensus says 5.
What a wonderful gift Gutmutter. My mother made my dress and it's precious to me because of it. Enjoy your visit with her!
My gums around some of my teeth were infected, so I made an appointment for a cleaning. I read online about natural methods of curing gum infections, and followed the recommendations. I also stepped up my oral hygiene. I wanted my gums to be in good condition for my hygiene appointment. Now I don't think my hygienist thinks my gums ever were infected. She said there wasn't any bleeding on probing. Maybe I should have shown up with what my gums used to look like. If someone shows up with infected gums, maybe they get a more thorough cleaning.
Are you, by any chance, talking about "oil pulling"?
Oil Pulling, Wonderful Therapy, An Ancient Ayurvedic natural remedies for Great Health
My daughter made me try this with olive oil and it was disgusting! I couldn't handle it. I may try it again with coconut oil.
I treid a lot of different things. I even read about more remedies such as clove oil that I didn't try. I started out with chewing raw garlic or raw onion. I read that chewing raw onion for three minutes kills all germs in one's mouth. That worked for one tooth. Then I got an infection around another tooth which was more painful. I added oil pulling with olive oil. I don't like thte taste of olive oil, but it's the healthiest oil. The pulling with olive oil was soothing after chewing garlic, which burns my tongue. (I am only able to chew about one-third of a clove). I only did the oil-pulling about three or four times. Then I rinsed with warm salt water a few times, and warm water with juice from half a lemon a few times. I tried a lot of things to clear up the infection as quickly as possible. The infection around that tooth cleared up.
I have nothing against these home remedies, but why can't you just use floss, toothpaste, and mouthwash to clean the gums? Why is garlic and onion better than a good oral rinse that fights plaque?
Regular dental hygiene products are preventative, but if you get an infection, they're not ameliorative.
