From what I read the doctors have no cure for the Burning Mouth Syndrome.
Try some remedies below.
There are a number of possible causes of burning mouth syndrome, including:
* damage to nerves that control pain and taste
* hormonal changes
* dry mouth, which can be caused by many medicines and disorders such
as Sjögren's syndrome or diabetes
* nutritional deficiencies
* oral candidiasis, a fungal infection in the mouth
* acid reflux
* poorly-fitting dentures or allergies to denture materials
* anxiety and depression.
From Earthclinic - People's BMS remedy comments:
I wanted to clear the point that after ten years of suffering I, by chance
came to "EARTH CLINIC" site and I am so thankful to God that I found it. I
read about baking soda 1/4 teaspoon and water 8 oz. drink it for two weeks
on empty stomach 2 to 3 times a day. Ted also said just take this to
alkalize your mouth then after two weeks start on organic raw apple cider and a
natural baking soda. Sometimes (with some people who have low magnesium and
low potassium) they will need a pinch of potassium bicarbonate and
magnesium citrate 250 to 300mg in the water also and I remember Ted also said that
if you have Thyroid problem then do not take too much potassium just take a
pinch in your water for few days and quit. Ted also said to avoid any
sugar products even honey, white breads (sometimes all wheat bread because you
might be allergic to Gluten) and avoid all dairy products. then you will
get good results.
That's exactly what I did. First thing I did was I quit taking sugar (
watching all the ingredients in products with " OSE" in the end like fruitose,
lactose, maltose, dextrose, and the list goes on and on with syrups and
artificial sugars) then I took baking soda and water 2 times a day on an empty
stomach for 2 weeks and WOW my burning mouth was gone. I realized if I
take any thing with sugar the burning comes back. I am trying not to take
sugar at all.
Another persons relief of burning tongue..... Simple solution, lettuce, it
almost immediately neturalizes the burn, pretty simple, pretty amazing.
Got burning mouth from a common and popular toothpaste that causes them to
have mouth pain from possibly the chemicals used for bleaching or whitening
The problem with most toothpastes that cause your mouth to be on fire, is
the 'Sodim Laurel Sulfate'. Try all of the products (including toothpaste)
by "Biotene'. They do not burn and made for those with dry mouth and burning
After 5 years of suffering from BMS, I also had some digestive issues. I
had begun to address the digestive issues through research and elimination of
certain foods. I came to the conclusion, I was gluten intolerant. After
eliminating gluten from my diet, the burning in my mouth completely stopped.
After 5 years. And the digestive issues have also ceased.
"I also suffered with BMS for about 2 months. It was getting progressively
worse. I could hardly eat or drink anything. Almost couldn't brush my teeth
anymore. Did some searching on the web and decided to try 600 mg of Alpha
Lipoic Acid 1x day. Also, stopped all oral products except Biotene
toothpaste and mouthwash. Dramatic improvement within 2 weeks, and now 5 months out
I still do the same regimen daily. I am back to normal.
"I recently suffered from BMS, never heard of it before and after reading
ALOT about it did the following home remedies. I immediately bought a herbal
toothpaste, I drank 1/2 teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda (a natural Baking
Soda) in a glass of water twice a day to reduce acid, I also took 1 capsule
of Spirulina with a glass of water 4 times per day after reading that my
body could be lacking iron (along with some other nutrients). I took a
capsule of milk thistle to help the liver eliminate toxins, I avoided sugar and
other white carbs (white pasta, white rice, cookies, cakes, white flour
etc. Etc. ). I also sucked on lumps of organic virgin coconut oil (from the
fridge so it was solid) which IMMEDIATELY eased the symptoms whenever the
burning was unbearable (being anti virul, anti bacterial, antisceptic and anti
fungal I thought it could do no harm). I also drank a couple of litres of
water every day and often squeezed a lemon in too. Amazingly, after fearing
that I was going to be living with BMS the rest of my life, it has GONE
AWAY - yeah!!!
I came across something I never heard of called Oil Pulling for health: Oil
pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic practice, dating back thousands of year.
It consists of using some form of a vegetable oil (coconut, olive, sun
flower, sesame, etc.) and swishing it around in your mouth for a period of 15-20
minutes. Do not swallow the oil, spit it out (this is important, because
the oil is now full of toxins), rinse out your mouth with plain water or salt
water. It is traditionally done first thing in the morning, on an empty
