Burning Mouth, Tinnitus, Crawling Sensations

Posted by Elizabeth on 10/13/2007

Hello Ted, I have found your advice to help heal thebody very interesting, and I would like to ask you for your guidance about three symptoms that I am experiencing.

1. A condition called burning mouth, the tongue and inner lips, roof of the mouth are very sore/ burning. the tongue has a white coating, no pain when chewing.2. Tinnitus in left ear. cause of tinnitus unknown, 3. Crawling sensation on scalp, outer ears, and side of face close to the ears, tops of cheeks, sometimes I can feel it stinging on top of my head. My scalp seems to be in good condition, although my hair has started to thin. I have consulted a chiropractor and osteopath unfortunately with no joy.My digestion seems to be okay no pain, no gas, no belching, no headaches. I eat a lot of fruit and vegetables. fish twice a week, no processed foods except oatmeal bread, no alcohol, no coffee, occasional tea. I drink 2-3 glasses of water a day plus I have started to drink a superfood it's a natural form of vitamins and minerals, mainly B vitamins, with zinc, iron, and iodine. Is bicarbonate of soda the same as the baking soda in your remedies?I would be very grateful if you had any suggestions as to how I could heal these conditions using your remedies.Thank you for your time. Elizabeth.

Dear Elizabeth:

The burning mouth usually is from acid mouthcondition, or acid tongue and is often the conditionof acidosis, with emphasis on potassium and magnesiumthat might be lacking. A simple remedy that I used isbaking soda 1 tablespoon in 1/2 glass of water to beused was a mouthwash. However, a much more appropriatepotassium bicarbonate and sodium bicarbonate, 50/50mixture such as 1/2 tablespoon of each in 1/2 glass ofwater is a more appropriate remedy to be used as amouthwash. This is followed by 1/4 teaspoon of bakingsoda and 1/4 teaspoon of potassium bicarbonate in 1/2glass of water taken twice a day to reduce theacidosis condition. Potassium bicarbonate seems tohave more beneficial effect in reducing the acidity ofthe mouth, but to be sure, I always make sure sodiumbicarbonate is not left out. A sodium bicarbonate orbaking soda is one and the same, but NOT the bakingpowder, which is very different, chemically speaking.Further more, I might consider taking magnesiumcitrate 250 mg/day for 5 days out of a week to correctthe pH from the citrate component, as well asrestoring the magnesium that might be lacking.

A common cause of tinnitus is ear infection, long terminfection of the ear, a magnesium deficiency, highheavy metals, fungus condition and acidosis.Appropriate remedy are treated based on the cause. Earinfection are treated using 1/4 teaspoon of bakingsoda, plus 3-6 drops of 3% Hydrogen peroxide in oneglass of water had been helpful with extreme tinnitusdue. The magnesium deficiency can lead to both ringingand sound sensitivity and the appropriate remedy is250 mg of magnesium citrate are taken 5 days out of aweek. A chlorella supplements once a day 5 days out ofa week would remove the heavy metals that isresponsible for sound sensitivity. In severe cases ofheavy metal toxicity, I have noted epileptic seizurecan also occur in some cases. As in home remedies,those can all be done at the same time or separately.Of course, I don't have that luxury of trying them allat once, since for me I had to discover what works,therefore I had to try them one by one which leads tolonger recovery times and suffering, but I get theadvantage of understanding what works and whatdoesn't.

Drinking 2-3 glass a day of water doesn't sound likemuch, since I drink plenty of water when I eat foodand I usually drink between 2-3 glass of water permeal, not counting the water I drink without mealswhenever I am thirsty. So this would amount to a about2.5 glasses of water x 3 meals a day = 7.5 glasses.Since I drink about 2 glasses not related to the meal,this would amount to 9.5 glasses. The standard is 8glass a day is thus easily achieved, even if I didn'treally keep tabs. A simple way is to observe how manyglasses are drank during a meal, which is 2.5 glassesplus 2 glasses not related to meal time. Hence, to dothat the standard 8 glass recommendation can beachieved. Mind you I live in a hot tropicalenvironment, but the water I drink during meal,regardless of the weather is often quite the same. Itis the water I drink not related to the meals thatvaries depending on the temperature and sweat. Hence,2.5 x 3 = 7.5 is the bare minimum I can achievedassuming the weather is cold and I drink no glasses ofwater not between meals.

I have mixed feelings about B complex, usually its theB6 Hydrochloride and the thiamine Hydochloride, whichare acid forming. Hence, AFTER I take B complex for acouple of hours, I will need to take some baking sodamore to neutralize the acidity of those. However, aneasier way I do it is just to take vitamin B complexocassionally, or take them separately each of the Bcomplex where I feel certain B's are needed more, suchas B2, B3, B5, B8 and B12.

Some people have a mistaken belief that you should notdrink water when eating food. This is a mistakebecause it alters and damages the blood serumseverely. This can easily be proven with the followingexperiment, if you have a clinic that provides forlive blood analysis under a dark field microscope.Eating foods with water versus eating food withoutwater. The blood platelets would invariable besticking to each other, almost resembling a bloodclot. If a blood clot were to actually occur, thiswould lead to paralysis (blood clot in the brain) orheart conditions (blood clots in the heartcapillaries). Hence, circulation is neverthelessclogged and people get less energized after eating.More energy actually should occur if appropriate waterwas taken and people don't stuff too much food whenthey eat. To eat unhealthy habits often leads to lackof energy AFTER eating. So this is one way of tellingwhether bad habits occur during eating.

A crawling sensation, whether it is an insect, or afungus problem, the use of borax as a shampoo is oftenan appropriate treatment. Borax is a gentle soap sogentle that it is used in eye wash preparation. What Imight do is to prepare a solution of borax, and norinsing leave it overnight and wash it the next day.The antifungal properties as well as anti-insecticidalproperties should get rid of the crawling. It is onlyin case of a confirmed insect problems that a boraxsaturated or oversaturated is added to the hydrogenperoxide 1% that is used for a stronger remedy.
