I am a 69 year-old guy. Over the past number of years I have suffered from persistent gum disease, resulting in the loss of bone supporting the teeth. Over the years I have consitently brushed my teeth after every meal, followed by anti-bacterial mouth-wash. I have flossed my teeth regularly each night and still the gum disease has persisted, resulting in the loss of one molar and two more candidates. Late this past winter I went on a regimen of taking Wild Oil of Oregano 3 drops 3 times a day under the tongue for 3 weeks. I have since backed off to two drops under the tongue at bed-time. My gums have never looked as good. I only wish that I had known of this 10 years ago! Five years would have still saved my tooth loss.
