You could try some bicarb, mixed into Stevia “tea” – basically you put 2 leaves into a 1/4 cup of boiling water and let it sit. It makes a STUNNING mouthwash! Then add the bicarb. ALternatively, you could mix half bicarb, and half sea salt, and then rinse with Stevia. The Stevia is a brilliant bug-killer, and not many people know that this mouth gargle of stevia and plain, boiled water can prevent mouth and gum disease. For us who can’t take the sugary mouthwashes, its a lovely, refreshing alternative. If you wish, you can toss in 2 leaves of mint as well into the boiling water, just for the freshness of breath. I use it as I find garlic very useful but very smelly, and no, parsley doesn’t help me, and yes, parsley DOES accumulate in the liver.
