My adventures in Ayurveda began several years ago. Initially they were reading dry texts on the basics of doshas. It was easy to discover my dosha, but not so easy to use it as an approach to improve my health. In fact I did not care for the plan set out for my dosha. I was increasingly frustrated by the complexity of a system I could not understand through books.

In the summer following the procedure I thought the pain and sensitivity were my body adjusting to a fairly radical procedure. Because of this faulty thought I lived with a dental infection for about 8 months. When I returned for a cleaning last month, the infection grew worse. It was so painful I immediately cut out most sugar and only felt good when I didn't eat or drink at all. Even water inflamed the infection. To try and beat the infection I increased my probiotics, rinsed with salt water, ate neem, packed amla in my cheeks like chewing tobacco, but I still hurt.
Luckily I came across Vicco Vajradanti herbal paste and powder. My tooth infection was most noticeable on one side, although I had an infection in every section where I had dental work this summer. The most painful section was in the top near the jaw. I rubbed the paste into my gums and 4 sensitive teeth and I had immediate relief. I then took about 2 teaspoons of the powder and rubbed it in the gums. I left this to sit in my mouth without swallowing for 5 or 10 minutes. The worst infection shifted down to the gum line. At first it was a hard bubble and now it is like a blister which disappears until I eat. It has been two weeks of regular use and the infection is no longer painful and almost gone. I intend to use the powder daily on the Juice Feast.
