Healing Teeth Naturally

Silvitis-Szilvay's wide range of indications included "thrombosis, thrombophlebitis, pleurisy, pneumonia, appendicitis, arthritis (acute), tonsillitis-angina, hyperhidrosis, haematoma, gingivitis and stomatitis (inflammation of gums and oral mucosa, respectively), rhagades, Dentitio difficilis (difficult eruption of wisdom teeth), rhinitis, fungal skin infections; for any inflammation caused by viruses, cocci (bacteria of spherical shape) or spores".

The anti-inflammatory (a clear water-like fluid) was composed of menthol, camphor, thymol, as well as "Ol. aeth. cps., and Spir. dil.".

In 1958, German dentist Dr. H. Hohlbaum (after testing the product for a year on both patients and his family) sent Dr. de Szilvay a report which detailed the results achieved with the product in his practice as well as general observations regarding other medical applications for which he found this anti-inflammatory liquid particularly effective and in fact, "amazing".

With both acute and chronic inflammation as well as bruises and haematomas, the medication acted amazingly fast, faster than other anti-inflammatories. (This observation was confirmed by a medical doctor who wrote that haematomas "of frequently surprising size such as on the buttocks and ankles" quickly dried out and disappeared without the formation of hard knots.)

Applied externally, the anti-inflammatory liquid penetrated up to a depth of 15 cm (c. 6 inches), thus exerting its full power even in very deep-seated inflammation. Purulent (pus-forming) processes "gathered" after a single application and, depending on location and size, either erupted (voiding an odourless cloudy fluid) or melted (to then spontaneously disappear).

The fluid shed during eruption was very different from the putrid masses draining from abscesses, a fact the dentist assumed to be due to the medication having killed all the inflammatory pathogens involved. Pain disappeared, redness and heat subsided. In no instance antibiotics or sulfa drugs were used, nor was there a requirement for their subsequent use.

Some sample cases illustrating how the anti-inflammatory liquid - Silvitis - worked.

Acute abscesses of the jaw

Acute jaw abcesses responded to Silvitis in an extraordinarily fast manner. They promptly "gathered" and drained, or were absorbed, respectively.

Gingivitis and stomatitis

All problems affecting the oral mucosa quickly abated when the patient rinsed his mouth several times daily using a single drop of the anti-inflammatory medication in a glass of lukewarm water. Using this solution, particularly long-standing inflammation of periodontal pockets quickly disappeared.

Dentitio difficilis (difficult eruption of lower wisdom teeth, pericoronitis)

After externally applying Silvitis, problems with erupting lower wisdom teeth abated within a day or two, in tandem with attendant complaints regarding the regional lymph nodes.

Granuloma in non-vital (pulp-dead) tooth

Following several applications of Silvitis in the area surrounding the affected tooth, a fistula was formed [connecting the inflamed tooth root with the oral cavity]. Upon additional applications, the fistula spontaneously drained and disappeared altogether some time later. Subsequent vitality testing of the tooth showed no response (the dentist thought it likely that both the granuloma and the root canal had become sterile).

Acute empyema (pus formation) in the maxillary sinus

The dreaded (and not infrequent) post-surgery and post-extraction complications affecting the maxillary sinus were definitely being healed by rubbing the anti-inflammatory medication once or twice into the area, or they were altogether prevented by applying it prophylactically. In acute cases, copious amounts of fluid were voided within the space of a few hours via the patient's nose.

Chronic empyema (pus formation) in the maxillary sinus

Several cases of chronic sinusitis of the maxillary sinus (x-rays indicated that the mucous membrane had started to form polyps) were treated with Silvitis.

Applying the anti-inflammatory over several weeks, it first was used daily then every second day. After several days, fluid drained via the nose and the one-sided headache and feeling of heaviness on the affected side totally disappeared. Follow-up x-rays taken weeks later showed considerable improvement in the area of the formerly affected maxillary sinus.

Root canal treatment

Using the anti-inflammatory liquid as a support in root canal treatment, the dentist noted that even teeth whose pulp was affected by advanced gangrene could be filled without complications arising.[2]

Rhagades (angular cheilitis)

Sores at the angles of the mouth disappeared after dabbing the fluid on two or three times.

Boils (furuncles)

One patient with a boil in his nose saw the furuncle disappear in the space of 7-8 hours after rubbing his entire nose with the product. All other boils reacted similarly, depending on their size. Smaller ones dried out in a few hours, larger ones spontaneously voided their content (following the second application at the latest).

Another doctor confirmed that boils, particularly in the beginning stage, as well as sebaceous cysts and all incipient inflammatory processes in the skin, especially boils in the nose and ear would heal very quickly by drying out (and "in an unsurpassed clean and simple manner). Sebaceous cysts would shrink within their capsule, allowing their complete excision in the easiest of ways.

Dentist Dr. Hohlbaum concluded his report by writing that Silvitis had far surpassed all his and others' expectations. It had been very successful with all types of inflammation, and acted in most cases "in an amazing fashion". He warmly recommended it to all his colleagues and added that he never wished to be without it again.

Other diseases

Used as an embrocation (liniment), the anti-inflammatory yielded quick results in cases of tenosynovitis, Athlete's foot, shingles, acute and chronic bronchitis, and many other afflictions.

Patients suffering from acute or chronic tonsillitis who had Silvitis dabbed on their tonsils frequently responded in such an amazing manner that in many cases tonsillectomy seemed to have become superfluous.

Many complaints relating to varicose veins including thrombophlebitis (phlebitis or vein inflammation involving a thrombus [blood clot]), leg ulcers and cases of hardened varices were successfully treated by using Silvitis as an embrocation, applied several times a day.

One doctor reported on his experience with using the anti-inflammatory with thrombophlebitis in great detail, mentioning his surprise at how quickly the blood clots dissolved and the inflammation abated.

While under usual treatment 7-9 weeks were required on average to see results, the treatment which included Silvitis only took 4-6 weeks for the blood clots to dissolve. This doctor had the fluid brushed on twice a day (while another used four daily applications).

He particularly praised the economical and clean application requiring no bandages or salves, making this method his new method of choice which he recommended to all his colleagues.

Where to find Silvitis

Originally registered with the German Patent Office as a trademarked medicine (under the number 750187), the anti-inflammatory was first produced by Sanum-Kehlbeck GmbH & Co. in Germany. The product was later (around 1995) sold to a Dutch company (www.holomed.nl). Holomed slightly adapted the formula which as of today contains thymol, camphor, menthol, ethanol, bergamot essential oil, and Aqua dest. and was rebaptised "Holo Silvitis".

Holomed are the only company worldwide selling the product (currently [2016] retailing at 12.50 EUR the bottle plus shipping and available via https://www.codliveroilshop.eu/product/holo-silvitis/ ).

If you don't wish to buy the product from abroad, you may try making your own formula using the above-mentioned basic ingredients. Be careful when handling the very "sharp" ingredients!

Original directions of use

Twice daily brushing of the affected skin area is sufficient since SILVITIS-Szilvay's active ingredients penetrate the skin and underlying tissue all the way to the focus of inflammation.

For gingivitis, periodontitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis: take 3 to 4 drops in a half glass of lukewarm water for swishing and gargling.
Avoid contact with the eye area.

Since silvitis contains camphor and other "strong" agents, it must not be combined with homeopathy, see "Antidotes to homeopathic remedies".
