It hurts to chew. It hurts to breathe. The pain from your toothache is so intense it’s keeping you up at night. And your dentist can only see you in two weeks’ time.
Does this sound familiar?
If you’re struggling with tooth or gum pain, you know it can take over your life in a matter of no time.
But here’s something I bet you’ve never been told.
There’s a powerful kitchen remedy that can send your toothache packing in less than 60 seconds. I’m talking about that simple, ground cayenne pepper that you’re adding to your chicken wings and other favourite spicy dishes.
Cayenne peppers have actually been used Native Americans and indigenous Mexican cultures for years to treat everything from indigestion to pain. These healthy peppers were considered such a medical breakthrough that one of Christopher Columbus’ doctors supposedly brought them back to Europe.
The miracle behind cayenne peppers is an ingredient called capsaicin. It controls inflammation and can even ward off heart disease and cancer.
The cayenne pepper in your kitchen has enough capsaicin to relieve even the most stubborn toothaches. Just mix the ground pepper with some water into a paste, and use a cotton swab to apply it directly to the painful area.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Old Dr. Rothfeld must have lost his marbles. If I put cayenne pepper on my painful gums or teeth, it’s going to burn like the dickens.”
Well, the truth is you can get a temporary burning or tingling sensation — but the relief that follows makes this kitchen remedy well worth trying.
Better still, because this remedy is drug-free and safe, you can use it as often as you want.Wishing you the best of health,
Dr. Glenn S. Rothfeld
