Manuka honey, which has potent antibacterial qualities, works just as well as
chemical mouthwash -- and better than the cavity-fighting sugar alcohol xylitol -- in
reducing plaque levels
Clinical trials have found that Manuka honey can effectively eradicate more than
250 clinical strains of bacteria, including antibiotic-resistant varieties
The vast majority of honey sold and consumed in the United States is processed or
refined, and will not offer the same types of healing properties found in raw,
high-quality Manuka honey
Neem has cleared up my gingivitis that the western dentist said had no
known cure. I guess they mean as far as
pharmaceutical/synthetic cures go.
Originally I got it from Frances Towle of (formerly) Boise Community
(http://www.resonancenaturalhealth.com/), who also cleared up my 31 year
chronic asthma with quantam reflexology and
homeopathy. Over the course of 6 months I took several pills and I used to

something that doesn't come from a plant/organic, etc. or something I can't
pronounce without a chemist's help (not that they
have any idea what those things are either).
I use IPAB by the Edgar Cayce people. Brush it on gumline. Aurevedic medicine says brush teeth with cold water, don't warm it at all. Cleaning with a good toothpick at gumline, using a mirror to see where that plaque is... very useful.
