26 Ways To Improve Mouth, Throat And Jaw HealthUsing Ingredients You May Already Have At Home
What to do when your jaw is aching and tight, or when your throat feels stressed and tired, and your mouth is sore and inflamed?
This type of pain and inflammation in the mouth, jaw, and throat is common, and it’s happened to me which is why I am writing about it. If you know my healing story, see The Earth Diet & 10-Minute Recipes, I had major health issues around my throat, mouth and jaw including a tumor the size of a golf ball in my lymphatic system, so I had a lot of healing to do in these areas. I applied all of the following and was able to heal the tumor, dissolving it within 3 months.
I continue to live a natural lifestyle, using the principles outlined in my books, and I have never felt better than I do now. However, if I start to stress, overwork, eat too many sweets (even natural sugars) or think negative thoughts, I can feel my jaw, throat and mouth tense and swell up. I consider this a warning to stop and change my path. I then apply the following techniques to prevent further illness.
HEALING TOOLS FOR THE JAW, MOUTH, AND THROAT
1. ENJOY YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW IN THIS MOMENT
We can still enjoy our life even when we have a problem such as a health issue. Even if we are in pain we can still enjoy our life. When we think “I can’t enjoy my life until this problem goes away”, we take the joy out of life and we don’t always know when the problem will go away. You have permission to enjoy your life right now.
2. DRINK A GREEN DRINK EVERY DAY
No matter how you feel, force yourself to drink a green juice or green powder drink every single day. This commitment can cause major transformation because it is providing the body with so much nutrition at an instant cellular level. And we never feel guilty after drinking a green juice, it makes us feel better immediately and gives us peace of mind.
3. CHAKRA HEALING
In terms of chakra healing, the jaw, mouth and throat are related to the communication area of our being. So issues here can indicate trapped and blocked energy. Wearing turquoise necklaces and thick soothing scarves are very comforting. Look at pictures and photos of bright blue turquoise which helps with healing and strengthening throat chakra issues.
4. RELEASE TRAPPED ENERGY
Trapped energy in the jaw can present suppressed anger, frustration, confusion and resentment towards ourselves or other people. Write out a list of everyone you feel like has sinned against you, or hurt you. Hand them over to God and show God that you feel these people really hurt you and you are so angry at them. Let God deal with it so it isn’t staying trapped in your throat and jaw.
5. CAST YOUR CARES ON GOD
Cast your cares on God and release it from your jaw. We are not meant to suffer or stress, we have been designed to be able to be joyous in all moments of our life, so learning how to offload stress as soon as it comes can keep sickness out of our body. Write out everything you hate about yourself and your life right now with the intention to hand it over to God to take it out of your body. Release all the hate. Write down any thoughts you have about yourself that you know are not healthy. Cry, scream, yell, communicate it all to God, it’s a safe place for us to communicate and everything to be absorbed. God will handle it and take care of it for us and we will be guided when to take action or to communicate to a particular person.
6. IMPLEMENT THIS AFFIRMATION
Repeat affirmations in the morning in the mirror “I love you (YOUR NAME), I really really love you.” Thanks to Louise Hay.
7. REPLACE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
Whenever you have a negative thought about yourself, think “Ok but I still love you (YOUR NAME).” We can still love ourselves even though our lives or situations may not be perfect.
8. KNOW YOU ARE LOVED
Relax right now and rest in knowing this: You are loved unconditionally by God and the Universe. No matter what you have done or haven’t done, if you have hurt people or they have hurt you, you are still loved and you are forgiven. A new life and opportunity is available to you. We were designed to make mistakes, to learn and grow. Know and understand that there is peace right here, right now, and is available to us in EVERY-SINGLE-MOMENT. We can align ourselves with the peace, but don’t get frustrated if you don’t feel peace right now, know that you will feel peaceful and joyful again soon.
9. GARGLE WITH SALT WATER
It kills bad bacteria and viruses in the mouth. It makes the mouth feel alkaline and healthy.
10. BRUSH YOUR TEETH
Brush your teeth morning and night (use organic toothpaste of course – check out the Bentonite Clay toothpaste, it’s called Earthpaste). Bentonite clay will absorb heavy metals and parasites.
11. MAKE A MOUTH PUTTY
Make a putty of bentonite clay and coconut oil and fill your mouth with it for 20 minutes and then dispose. This is very soothing and comforting for the mouth.
12. GO OUT IN NATURE
Take a walk, get outside and enjoy the sunshine.
Get into a state of love, be around someone you love and do something you absolutely love.
14. EAT SOMETHING EXCITING AND NOURISHING
Make some Cashew Ice Cream Bites with Chocolate Sauce! Gluten free, dairy free and guilt free. A plant-based recipe in my new book 10-Minute recipes that is high in antioxidants, soothing, uplifting and delicious when we crave ice cream.
15. EAT SOME IMMUNE BOOSTING FOODS
Take oregano oil to kill viruses and bacteria. Cook with sage and oregano. Make a Vegetable soup that is immune boosting with cumin, turmeric, sage and oregano. Eat something raw like a vibrant piece of fruit or some crunchy vegetables. It’s amazing what living food can do for our healing immediately.
16. SAY GOODBYE TO THE OLD YOU
Imagine closing the door right now on this chapter of your life. You have learned new things just from reading this piece, and you are releasing pain, inflammation, and suffering in your body. Open a new chapter.
Know you can move forward confidently and your new future is brighter, healthier and happier than you have ever experienced before.
God is helping you to end unhealthy cycles that may have caused suffering in your life whether it was an addiction to unhealthy food, people who may be constantly hurting you, or destructive thoughts about yourself.
17. BE OPEN TO NEW THOUGHTS
Agree that it is unacceptable to think such hurtful negative thoughts towards yourself.
18. GET CONTROL
Say out loud “I have control over my habits, they do not have control over me.” Even if it’s not true yet, it will become so.
19. TAKE AN EPSOM SALTS BATH
Soak in the goodness.
20. SOAK IN SALT WATER
Take a sea salt bath like Redmond Real Salt, or soak in the ocean
21. USE THE SUNSHINE
Lie in the sunshine and absorb it through your third eye chakra and throat chakra. Imagine the sunshine is going into your cells and zapping out the inflammation like star dust leaving it glowing and strong. Stick your tongue out at the sun and absorb Vitamin D right onto the tongue.
22. START THE DAY WITH OIL PULLING
Use coconut oil or sesame seed oil.
Pray or ask the Universe for help to relieve you from this situation. See it possible, and know it is possible.
Sleeping in pitch black and completely disconnecting to recharge is another healing remedy in this situation.
25. ASSESS YOUR TONGUE
Do you have a layer of white build up or bumps on the back of your tongue? This is a sign or oral candida or oral thrush. This is caused by excess bacteria build up. If this is the case:
Drink: Green tea, bentonite clay, activated charcoal (and swish in mouth), ginger tea, green juice (without an apple or sweetness).
Eat: Chew on raw ginger, raw garlic, onion (raw and cooked)
Cut out refined white sugar all together. Only eat natural sugars like dates, fruits, maple syrup, honey and coconut sugar when you absolutely have to have sugars.
26. DO WHAT NEEDS TO GET DONE
Continue with your mission even though you don’t “feel” like it. Don’t let work or bills pile up which will just cause more stress to your life. Do what needs to get done and even if you think “I really hate my life right now because I have to do the dishes” do it anyway even though you hate it. Even if you feel like dying, sleeping forever, hiding, still make yourself a herbal tea or green drink. Do the things you know you will be proud of later. This will help you get through the “stuck” periods.
