When I eat more than a little tempura, my gums freak out. They feel inflamed and may peel slightly on the ceiling of the mouth. Is this an allergic reaction, or do I just need to wait for the tempura to cool before I shove them into my mouth? I... (more)

It's the rough texture irritating your mouth, I believe.

I hate the taste. I was using them and switched to bone broth and mineral rich foods instead. I did add them to broth for awhile and they were much more palatable. Could not do it in water. Salty broth masks the taste better.

Hi peoples, (first time posting) I've searched around, and can't seem to find anything that's applicable. I've been doing very-low-carb (0g-6g average) paleo for about a month now. Recently, about the past two weeks, I've experienced a dry... (more)

Drinking too much water can cause a dry mouth. Also, with such a low carb diet, you are likely eating a significant amount of protein. Protein is a diuretic, causing your body to excrete water, along with electrolytes. Given that you are drinking... (more)

I'm betting stress and run down immune system not food is causing the issue. Def try the coconut recommendation first though a bump in vitamin c and zinc always helps in my case. Watch the acidic fruits during the mend and make sure sleep is dialed. (more)

The answer is it depends. Once again the C-word rears its head - CONTEXT! The optic with which you view the problems matters. As you know, digestion of starch begins in the mouth with amylase, which is the catalyst to break down starches into... (more)

Your dentist may also have been talking about how bacteria can enter your bloodstream from your mouth. After you brush your teeth or floss, or any dental procedures like scraping your teeth, chances are you've broken some of the small blood... (more)

Did you eat the fat with salt? I get dry mouth if I stop eating salt for a few days, you might be the same.

Sure, you can brush your teeth before and after bed, but what about the in-between? I would think having fresh breath in the morning would be a plus for married couples? Am I wrong?
