Hi Seeker of Sherbrooke,
Yes, natural remedies such as garlic, oil pulling and many others do offer a permanent cure. I have used them myself and experienced permanent and complete cures. Read some of the thousands of comments on this website to confirm that others also enjoy permanent healing.

The return of an infection means either that it was not fully cured in the first place, or that you have been re-infected. When you are using a natural remedy, please continue to use it long after the infection is apparently cured. The web page for each remedy at Grow Youthful usually explains how to use the remedy and for how long.

There are a couple of types of infections that are difficult for the remedy to access, such as deep in a root canal filling in a tooth or an infection of the brain. However, even in such extreme cases garlic is likely to be far more successful than any kind of pharmaceutical medicine and conventional treatment.

The best way to prevent re-infection is by having a strong immune system. Be as fit and healthy as you were at the time of the original infection, and stay away from the likely sources of that infection.

Yes, from experience, natural remedies such as oil pulling and garlic work and I succeed to get rid of my infection, but when I stop using garlic, oil pulling, salt rinsing etc, it’s not long before that infection returns. I feel like I’m only relieving the infection and pain and not actually healing the gums permanently. My question is: can you or has someone actually got rid of an infection or healed gums for good?

I have been diagnosed as oral Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid (MMP) on gums. I get painful oral lesions on my gums if I eat chillies or red chilli. When I take antibiotics I get about two months relief free from sores and pain on the oral gingiva, perhaps due to high bacterial count in the gums. After that I again get the sore mouth with lesions, inflammation and redness in gums. I do not like to take antibiotics and I happened to read an article on good health that garlic is super food. It has to be consumed by chopping, crushing and swallowing after five minutes of releasing allicin to get the max benefits. When I held the crushed garlic in my mouth the juice coated my gums and the whole day I felt the relief from sore gums (although I felt like I had massive breath issue.) So I researched the connection between gums and garlic and I found this platform on using garlic for healing gum disease. This blog confirmed my true experience. I found Grow Youthful after four years of internet investigation everyday for an hour to solve my gum issues. Other remedies I tried to manage the flare ups include turmeric gel, Aloe vera, steroid topicals like Kenacort, honey, hydrogen peroxide mouth rinse and amla juice. I’m happy that I can manage naturally with garlic juice rubbed on my gums, rather than consume antibiotics every time there is a flare up. Please try this natural remedy as it has helped me with MMP issue on my gums.

I've started garlic because I've experienced soreness on my gums which started on Monday this week. At first I took paracetamol for 3 days although it eased some pain but the pain was still there. But I looked up internet for home remedy for gum soreness and I stumbled on garlic here. It helped after I crushed the whole clove of garlic in my mouth and burnt my mouth, my eyes was watering etc! It helped cos now I only feel the pain when I press the sore area on my chin where my gum is. I tried the garlic again this evening this time minced, placed it on the sore area of my gum and left for 30 mins. But I want to know how many times do I need to do this garlic treatment till I'm completely pain free and the infection gone? Can I chew on a mint chewing gum after the garlic treatment to freshen my mouth?

I had a tooth abscess in a root. First I tried hydrogen peroxide, but it killed too much healthy tissue in my mouth, and a large sore was developing. When I read about garlic I immediately went and bought some because the pain was increasing and my face and the glands in my throat were swelling. I first put a clove of garlic in my mouth and chewed it with the abscessed tooth. I DON'T RECOMMEND THIS! The pain was excruciating. Not just in my tooth, but also in the large sore area that developed from the peroxide. I spend a good 10 minutes, eyes watering, breathing hard, jumping up and down. When the burning subsided, I felt no pain! The swelling in my face decreased after about half an hour. The second time I just split a clove and placed it on my gums near my abscessed tooth. This was MUCH less painful. It felt as if it had a more mild, time release effect. I was able to hold it about half an hour until the burning completely subsided. I'm not completely free of infection and swelling yet, but the garlic made a huge and immediate difference. If your mouth is in pain, try garlic now! I wish someone had told me that the very first time I ever had tooth pain.

I felt it coming on 3 days ago...a pain in a molar. I immediately brushed, flossed, oil pulled, rinsed with salt water. I thought it was just something stuck. I took a dental tool and scraped around a bit... no better, no worse. Rinsed salt and went to bed. Next morning my face was slightly swolen on that side. Worse, my eye was actually full of a milky substance. My sinus and head hurt. Tuesday, but everything was closed for a holiday. Did some research because my cup of tea turned it up a notch. Here I found the suggestion for garlic. I took a clove, sliced it and placed it where I thought the pain was coming from. Stung a little but in the scheme of things it was nothing. About 20 minutes later I thought it felt different. I swapped out the slice. As I worked at the computer, I did resort to aspirin, but kept at the garlic every few hours. By evening it seemed to be helping. Next morning still a bit sore in sinus and head but less so. Ut was 24 hours before I was sure it had to come out... Today, hard swelling is gone. Everything feels much better. It doesnt sting to chew. I tried garlic because I read it works because it has powerful antibiotic properties. I'm glad for the pain, as now I am taking proper care. I might continue garlic sucking to see if it treats some spots where gums have receeded. It probably means fewer kisses...but if it helps, maybe it is something that can be done periodically.

I've been using garlic for 2 days now. I minced it and placed it on a small abscess on my gum and wow 10 minutes later felt the pain reduced significantly. Pus is no longer coming out the gum pocket and seems to have stopped too. I think I'm controlling the infection better now than when on antibiotics 2 months ago. I think and pray it will get rid of my abscess, just might take a bit longer this way but I can avoid dentist for a while.

I found this site Thursday. I had gone to the dentist on Wednesday for a quarterly cleanup. I have some periodontics issues. The months prior I had a substitute hygienist who left my mouth sore since that visit or if it may have been the two old fillings that were leaking, but Thursday my mouth hurt. By evening it was throbbing with pain and I could feel the underlying puss in my gums. I had an appointment for next Wed. to take care of the fillings but that was a long way off with the pain I was in. To make matters worse, the dentist was closed Friday. I quickly search the net and found this site and another one. I had coconut oil here so I first did an oil pull, swishing it around in my mouth for about 20 minutes before I spit it out.. Then I pressed a clove of garlic and took the raw garlic and put it all over the sore area. It was very uncomfortable, but tolerable for around 15 minutes until the mix basically got swallowed due to all the saliva that was generated. It still hurt a little, but none of the severe pain and an hour or so later, it felt really good. I figured I'd do a second clove during the evening then one before I went to bed based on what I read here. However, it felt so good that I only did one right before I retired. The second was much more painful. I'm guessing because the under gum swelling had decreased a lot. I still managed to keep it on the area for close to 10 minutes. I woke up Friday morning and I felt totally normal. All the swelling was gone and another day has passed and it feels fine. I'll probably do another oil pull and continue doing it 2 or 3 times a week based on what I read about hygienic health. Thanks everyone, this thread was a godsend.

I've been battling an oral fistula for the last five days. It was at its worst the first day it appeared, the size of a pencil eraser and whitish. I immediately began oil pulling with coconut oil 3 times daily, followed by a gentle brushing and flossing, and rinsing well with salt water (using sea salt). Within 48 hours, this had improved it a LOT - it was much smaller and less white and it's been getting steadily better ever since, but there's still a tiny little blister that's a little sore. I want to knock this thing completely out, so I thought I'd give garlic a try in addition to the oil pulling and sea salt water. I just minced a bit of fresh garlic and added sea salt and warm water and rinsed well with that (it was strong enough to tingle and burn in my mouth just a bit, but not bad at all). I have no idea as of yet if it's going to help get rid of that little blister, but it did completely take the soreness away within minutes. I have a massive case of garlic breath, but my gums feel great. :) I'll try to remember to post again if it does get rid of that last little blister...
