Gum Disease: The Silent Killer, 5 Home Remedies To Cure It Naturally

Home Remedies For Gum Disease
Gum Diseases like gingivitis and pyorrhea occur if the teeth are not brushed properly and food particles are allowed to decay in the mouth. The ideal strategy is to brush after every meal to ward off plaque and keep the teeth and gums in a healthy state.
If bacteria are allowed to thrive, they start attacking the gums, eating into the teeth supporting bone tissues, causing pain and bleeding. If this condition is allowed to remain untreated, there can be loss of teeth. Over the counter products are not only dear but their chemical components can cause damage to the teeth by their extensive use.

Tips To Cure Gum Disease Naturally

Mustard Oil

Mustard oil is found in every home. It is extensively used as a cooking medium for its health benefits. It is rich in vitamins and has antioxidant properties. Take half teaspoon of pure mustard oil in the palm of your hand. With your clean finger rub the oil all over the gums using a gentle circular motion. Rinse with warm water. This will increase the blood circulation, stimulate the gums and soothe the pain. For strong gums use this application daily.


Turmeric is another common ingredient to be found in every home. Its potency to reduce inflammation and fight infection is well known. Take one teaspoon of turmeric powder and mix it with honey to form a thick smooth paste. Apply gently all over the gums and teeth. Leave for three minutes. Rinse with water. The gums will be soothed and feel less tender. Do it every night before going to bed.

Ajwain Or Carom Seeds

Ajwain is known in every home. It is a thorough cleanser and purifier. It is rich in essential oils that have great medicinal properties. It has a pungent aroma. Boil two teaspoons of ajwain in two glasses of water. Boil till the water is reduced to one glass.

Worth Buying

Cool and strain. Don’t throw away the seeds. Rinse your mouth with this water swishing vigorously. After rinsing eat the seeds. The fibre in the seeds will help to do away with the plaque. Your gums will not only be relieved but your mouth will feel fresh and aromatic.

Clove has amazing healing properties. The essential oils in it have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is a good source of vitamin C which helps in resisting infections.
Rub clove oil on the affected gums twice a day. If the oil is not available, grind cloves to a fine powder, and with your finger rub the powder on the gums and teeth and try to insert it between the teeth as much as possible. Do not rinse or wash away the powder. The gums will absorb the essential oils which will do away with plaque and bacteria.

Rock Salt Or Himalayan Salt

Rock salt is the purest form of salt and contains pure essential minerals. It has been used for healing since ages. It manages pain and swelling. Take a quarter teaspoon of himalayan powder and dissolve it in water. Rinse your mouth with it twice a day.

The Top 6 Must Have Gear Types In Your Bug Out Bag To Save Your Life

For someone new to being a Survivalist building your first Bug Out Bag can seem like a big task. Everybody you read about has been tweaking theirs for months or even years and has a pile of gear built up. It’s hard to know where to start, but if you cover all of the basics in a survival situation you will still be much better off that 99% of the people.
A Bug Out Bag, (also called a BOB, Get Out of Dodge Bag, GOOD, or 72 Hour Bag) is usually designed to get you out of an emergency situation and allow you to survive self-contained for up to 3 days. A lot of people plan their Bug Out Bag to sustain them for much longer than that, but there is always a limit to what you can carry on your back and a 3 day target is a good place to start.

Here are the 7 basic types of gear you will need for your Bug Out Bag:

1. Water

It should go without saying that water is a survival basic for any situation. In a survival situation water quickly becomes the most precious commodity.
1 Liter per day per person is really the bare minimum. So your 3 day Bug Out Bag should have at least 3 liters of water.
To expand your capability or survive longer than a couple of days you will need a water purification system. This can be as simple as boiling water and iodine tablets, or a serious water filter.
2. Food

Backpack Meals
For a 3 Day Bug Out Bag Backpack Meals and Energy Bars can be sufficient. Back pack meals are freeze dried meals that you just add boiling water to. They are light weight and last a long time.
Obviously you will need a longer term food solution in any type of wide area catastrophe, but for your basic Bug Out Bag backpack meals are a good set up.

3. Clothing

Your Bug Out Bag clothes should be similar to what you would pack for a weekend backpacking trip.
  • A pair of sturdy boots or shoes
  • A pair of long pants (preferably not blue jeans)
  • 2 Pairs of socks (preferably not cotton)
  • 2 Shirts (Maybe 1 long sleeve and 1 short sleeve for layering)
  • A Jacket that is both warm and protection from rain
  • Warm long underwear of some kind
  • A hat
  • A Bandana 
This list could go on for a while and many people would never dream of leaving their Bug Out Bag without twice that much, but in a pinch that set up could get you by for 3 days.
Be sure to plan for the weather in your area:  have seasonal clothes in your bug out bag

4. Shelter

If you are going to survive for 3 days you are going to need protection from the elements and a warm dry place to sleep. You need at least:
  1. Some type of tent or tarp and a way to set it up
  2. A ground tarp for underneath your shelter to stay dry  or a sleeping pad (Never underestimate the importance of this)
  3. Some type of Bedroll, preferably a good sleeping bag.

5. First Aid Kit

Trying to cover everything you need in your Bug Out Bag First Aid Kit is another article entirely to itself, probably several more. I won’t try to cover it because I would surely leave something out.
What I will do is recommend that you build your own First Aid Kit instead of buying one of those prepackaged first aid kits that claim to have 1001 things to get you through any emergency. While some are ok, in my experience these types of kits are usually filled with a lot of stuff you are unlikely to need and not enough of the things you will probably need a lot of.

Plus, building your own first aid kit gives you an intimate knowledge of what it contains and how to use it. How many people buy one of those pre-made set ups and just assume they are prepared because there’s so much crap in it there must be what I need? Bad Idea.

6. Basic Gear

Basic Gear sounds repetitive (what have I been talking about?) but it is my category for the things you absolutely cannot live without but don’t really fit well into another category. Many survivalists will not like this list because it is not exhaustive by any means, but again I will say: It will be enough to get you by for a couple of days.
Rain Gear – at least 2 ways to stay dry in the rain. Poncho and Coat are good coupled with your Tent/Shelter
Fire – A bare minimum of 3 different ways to make fire. With that you can get a flame but you will have to actually build the fire up too! A great one is Everstryke - survivor life fire starter.

You’re also going to need something to cut your firewood and a knife uses too much energy long term so have a chainsaw!

Cooking – Bare minimum here is a small pot/large cup to boil water in for both drinking and freeze dried meals. A small backpacking stove and fuel are better.

Light – At least 2 dependable flashlights and a backup set of batteries for each.

Survival Knife – The most used and most versatile tool in your Bug Out Bag is your survival knife.  I wrote more about this here:  7 Things You Should Consider before Choosing Your Survival Knife.
