Why Should You Care About Gingivitis?
Over time if your gums are inflamed and the condition is not improved, it will get worse. Gingivitis is a minor disease, which may not cause immediate problems, but it is an indication that something is out of balance in your body.
Why Are My Gums Inflamed?
There are several reasons why gums can become inflamed. One common reason can be food particles stuck in the gums, but this is not a disease. Another reason can be dead cells from inside your mouth and body that are not properly cleaned away by the body.
Inflammation is the response from the body to protect irritated tissue. The inflammation serves to protect the deeper structure of the gums. Gums can inflame if there is acrid and toxic waste in the mouth or in the blood flowing to the gums, or if the gums are deteriorating and the cell walls are more easily ruptured or damaged due to regular chewing of food.
In the bigger picture, the food you eat, the care for your gums, and the amount of toxic burden in your body are the primary factors that cause gingivitis. It has little to do with how much you brush, unless you over-brush and damage your gums.
Gingivitis Is NOT Caused By Dental Plaque
Plaque is sticky residue in your mouth; it is also everywhere else in your body. It does not come from bacteria, but has to do with your biochemical make-up which is a factor of your diet, lifestyle and toxic body burden. Bacteria clean up and eat decayed matter in our body; they do not cause disease.
How To Treat Gingivitis
Consider the herbal remedies on my gum disease page.
Gum inflammation can often be treated with good cleansing. This can happen with oral irrigation, or by using a special gum cleaning technique.
It should no longer be a secret that our bodies decay because we eat the wrong types of foods.
When our bodies are in a state of decay, everything does not function as well. For some people, this can result in sore joints, weak muscles, poor skin or vision, and in other people, the result is gum pain and inflammation. Gum inflammation can also increase from eating certain irritating foods, particularly sweet foods.
While my gums were never inflamed, my teeth used to feel very loose in my mouth; I could easily wiggle them. This is a sign of a weak periodontal ligament. My teeth are now strong, and my gums are much healthier. The body will heal itself given the right types of foods.
To promote the healing process while improving your diet, herbs and a dental pick can be used. For more about a healthy diet, purchase "Cure Tooth Decay."

I had several very painful cavities postpartum (after having twins) that kept me up all night in pain and made it so I could barely eat... After following the advice in this book accruately my tooth pain subsided within 24 hours and no longer hurt at all, my teeth also look nicer and my gums no longer bleed and are a nice pink color. -J. Steuernol, Canada
"The practical advice in this book really seems to be reversing my tooth decay!!! Hallelujah brother!!! The dentist wanted me to have two major root canals immediately and two other teeth filled. When I asked him if there was anything I could do with nutrition or supplements to get mu teeth to heal, he said "maybe you could slow the decay down a little bit" but that essentially the answer was no.
That dental visit was three mobnths ago and my teeth have stopped aching all together, are way less temperature sensitive, and feel generally stronger.
Most of us have been totally disempowered regarding the health of our teeth. This information has changed that for me. I bought the book for $28 anyway though. What a bargain, The dental work was going to cost well over $4000.00 no wonder dentists don't seem open to this stuff working! Talk about a biased perspective!!!
Think I'm excited, you will be too if you use this info to take tooth health into your own hands!"

"Not only is Cure Tooth Decay a practical guide to teach parents how to raise healthy children (with healthy teeth), it is also a helpfull tool for adults who have suffered with poor dental health and/or chronic disease. I would also highly recommend this book to people who are looking for things they can do to protect their bones, and their overall health, as they age. In other words, this book is a must read for everyone interested in improving their health." Pam Killeen New York Times nestselling Author
"Ramiel, You (along with Weston Price) saved my teeth. Was supposed to get a root canal (which I had no money to pay for). Tooth was in pain. After three weeks on the diet I can feel a big difference, tooth doesn't hurt now and feels like it's healing. Thanks so much. Unbelievable!" - Leroy, Utah
My cavity has gotten smaller! Once you are set free from being a slave to modern foods of commerce author continues to explain how the ancient people ate. They were healthy, strong and good looking. They had no cavities. They had no illness until familiar western culture came to visit them. If you are reading this review I am sure you understnad something is not right in the world. That we are born to live under a certain hypnosis. That we are taught to give away our responsibility to "people with authority", and those people cannot even take care of themselves. I recommend this book if you want the way out."Ranko, Croatia
