Bacteria naturally proliferate when the blood is sweet or rich after sweet or rich foods. This is especially true for the gums, which are exposed to the outside air. Toxicity in the blood further irritates tissues, making them vulnerable to infectious attack.

Disclaimer: Conditions such as 'Receding gums' that cause tissue changes could be serious and should be checked by a medical doctor.

Aggravated Doshas & Qualities

Symptoms Tell A Story

The first step to healing is learning patterns from your symptoms. Symptoms are clues that reveal underlying imbalances, showing you where your body is weak. Specifically, they reveal the doshas & qualities that may have become aggravated. If you notice a quality or dosha appears next to many of your symptoms, it helps you establish a pattern that may be systemic.

Receding gums indicates one or more of the following doshas and qualities are imbalanced:

Hi, I have been experiencing tooth sensitivity and receding gums that seems to be in correspondence with my change of diet to more sweeteners, carbohydrates and milk. I have changed my diet to help counter the heat created by a fairly rigorous yoga practice that I have been adopting over the last 6 months. Do these symptoms mean I should back off of sweets for a period? I am also mostly a Pitta type. Any suggestions?
