Curing gum (periodontal) pockets
Healing periodontitis naturally (incl. psychological issues in gum disease)
Interestingly, while deep gum pockets are considered incurable without surgical intervention in dentistry lore (or should I say "book of dental fairytales" :-), I found them the only dental challenge to truly easily self-heal. In fact so much so that in my personal "dental hoaxes" list, the gum pocket "horror story" as told by mainstream dentists stars in position number one!
Periodontitis can be healed without surgery
Read here my real-life testimonial: healing deep gums pockets simply and naturally. Also see Herbal tooth and gum powders heal serious chronic periodontitis (after twice daily brushing using conventional toothpaste failed), Brushing with bar soap cures severe gum disease (of 20 years standing with loss of teeth), Herbal gum pack testimonial 1, herbal gum pack testimonial 2 as well as this extensive list of Home and herbal gum remedies.
From what I have read, gum diseases (gum pockets, gingivitis) seem to be related both to stress and diet, and are particularly prevalent in people with relationship issues (breakups).
Indeed, before ever reading about the above possible connection, when I broke up with a previous boyfriend, I developed serious gum disease (my gums painfully swelled to the point that my entire face was affected). I went to see an anthroposophic doctor who helped me heal my gums with a homeopathic salve.
Dentist Joel Knapp confirms the link between stress and periodontal disease, quote: "We've had a lot of cases of gum disease that had no plaque at all. We found out that the person wasn't eating enough, wasn't getting enough sleep, and was under a lot of stress. There's a lot of gingivitis among people taking exams in college, and among people getting a divorce."
