This isn't a question, I just wanted to share a discovery I made with regards to Oral thrush and I'm convinced it's an untapped resource!...I suffer for months at a time with oral thrush and Nystan never worked, nothing ever did. I also found that it was actually worse after brushing my teeth in the morning as it seemed all the chemicals were too harsh...after all thrush is an imbalance...we want to gently restore this (I'm all about balance)...so I started looking into natural ways to restore balance and tea tree oil and aloe vera kept coming up. I was stumped as to what products I should use to get these substances into my system...juice?..tablets?...then I thought natural toothpaste!....So I trotted down to H&B and looked at the monoflurophosphate free slection and most of them had tea tree and aloe vera!... (AloeDent is the main brand and the whole range is good)...so I tried it and it was fantastic!...wake-up, brush teeth and tongue...seems to totally sort it for the whole day....literally like a miracle cure - you have to keep using it but as long as you do (and avoid beer!) it keeps it at bay...no horrible taste, no white fur...nothing!....I haven't heard any Lupus Doctors come up with anything that works and my GP was so impressed he said he will mention it at the next info sharing thingy.....I need everyone to know about this because it works sooo well!...I also really cleans your teeth and freshens breath with real peppermint (bit more expensive but not as much as a £7.85 prescription for Nystan!)...I was curious as to whether it was the aloe or tea tree that did all the work but when I tried toothpastes with just one of those ingredients it didn't seem to work so well, it must be a combination of the two...studies need to be done!...The gel like texture also seems to be more benficial to the flora of the mouth than the usual harsher creams...try it people and let me know!!!
