How To Prevent Toothache Naturally
Toothaches a pain in the tooth. There are so many different reasons why you might have a toothache, but there are also ways to prevent them if you’re prone to them like me. So read on for some natural home remedies that may help ease your pain and discomfort.
What Causes Toothache?
There are many causes of toothache, including cavities, gum disease, bad breath or other health problems. One cause is poor oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth regularly will remove bacteria and reduce the risk of tooth decay. Some people need to have their teeth professionally cleaned. Other causes include being hit in the face by a baseball bat or being struck by a car while eating ice cream.
Home Remedies for Toothache
Here are home remedies for toothache:
- Honey and Lemon Juice: Honey and lemon juice both can help relieve toothaches. Honey is a great remedy for a sore throat and can also be used to treat periodontal disease. The acid in honey helps to dissolve the bacteria in your mouth, which prevents them from causing infections and making you feel uncomfortable. You can also use this remedy for pain around the ear or on the roof of your mouth after eating mushrooms. For those who suffer from headaches, you can use a mixture of fresh lemon juice and honey in a cup of warm water. Dilute the lemon juice with the honey until it barely forms a paste. Then gargle it to relieve your headache.
- Hydrogen Peroxide: This is an anti-bacterial and can be used to disinfect wounds and soothe inflammation in your mouth as well. Always follow directions when using hydrogen peroxide since too much can be harmful if applied directly to the skin. You should generally only use it to clean wounds, cuts, scrapes and minor burns.
- Garlic: This is a great way to strengthen your immune system and spruce up your breath at the same time. Take a clove of garlic on an empty stomach about 30 minutes before eating mushrooms for best results. If you don’t like the taste, you can add some honey as a sweetener.
- Listerine: The mouthwash contains alcohol which will dry out your mouth therefore making it easy for the mushrooms to “pick up” on your textures. To rid your mouth of the alcohol and to prevent any further damage, gargle with Listerine followed by drinking water.
- Chapstick: Apply this lip balm in addition to a dose of hydrogen peroxide just before eating mushrooms. This will make you feel as if you are getting pampered at a spa while you are getting back to nature.
- Vitamin C: This wonderful vitamin is essential for growth and health. It will also promote healthy cell function which are essential to the absorption of the chemicals in mushrooms. The best type of supplement is a high potency ascorbic acid or vitamin C powder because this will be absorbed through your body much faster than other forms of vitamin C you can get from food sources.
- Xanthan Gum: Sprinkle some this wonder food on your dish if it does not dissolve well and enjoy the crunchy texture!
- Psyllium Husk: This is an excellent fiber for your body because it will help to lower cholesterol and also increase your digestive function.
- Chlorella: This is a type of algae that has been found to be very beneficial for the body in many ways. It boosts the immune system, helps to detoxify your body, and also lowers cholesterol levels.
- Vitamin D: If you are not getting enough sun exposure then get some vitamin D from supplements or food sources. The best way is either to take it in pill form or to eat foods fortified with vitamin D.
- Net Carbs: You should consume about 20-30 net carbs per day. This is the number of carbs in a single gram of fiber and this is a good rule if you want to stay healthy and lose weight.
- Whole Grains: These are better than processed grains as they contain more fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
