Hi all. I am new to this site and have ORS. For the many years I’ve had ORS, I’ve looked for a support group online or a website that had anything that would be of real help to others with this problem. I’ve never found anything helpful except descriptions on medical journals and short comments by people in online mental health groups that would kinda mention some symptoms of ORS, but never actually mention the disease, talk about it in length or mention anything helpful. That’s why when I stumbled across this site a couple of days ago, I was so glad to see others talking about it, sharing stories and helpful advice. Just reading your comments and stories inspired me and gave me hope (especially about those of you with TMAU), making living with ORS a little easier, so I want to thank you for writing it. I also know that this would help other ORS sufferers looking for help on the Internet. I know if I came across this site years ago when I was young, lonely and scared, with my ORS at its worst and making a mess of my life, it would have helped and maybe my life would have been different and not so difficult. Anyway, life is still difficult but at least I’m a little stronger now and not hopelessly depressed and suicidal. I believe some of you mentioned starting an ORS link, if you do please let me know. I would love to help. Anyway, to all of you, please continue to stay strong and do what you are doing. You are not only making your lives better by doing so but also making others’ lives better by inspiring them. Thank you once again and God Bless.
Mints and mouthwash won't help much for a tooth infection if you don't have the rght kind. Your mints probably are making matters worse because they contain sugar. I had tooth infections but I took herbs, herbs like goldenseal and echnea are excellent for tooth infections. You may have to take them over periods of time until you get a good breakthrough.
For instance taking Echinea for 3 weeksa and then doing the echnea for 3 weeks and then stopping may be the way to go.When you take certain herbs for long periods of tume they will lose their effect (at least that is what I read) so you have to take them for atleast 3 weeks and then stop.
Also the problem may have spread to your digstiv system so taking probiotics can help along with a multiple vitamin.Takng vitmin C,chewing Biotene Gum with Xytol can helps and also using Xytol toothpaste is good http://www.iherb.com
