Salivary Gland Complaints

http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg

Though rare, salivary gland complaints do and can occur. There's even a form of salivary gland cancer.

Before we jump into this subject matter, let's first understand what is a salivary gland, especially since we all have them.

"Salivary gland." One of three pairs of glands that pour their secretions into the mouth, thus aiding the digestive process. The salivary glands are the parotid, the submandibular, and the sublingual glands. They are racemose structures consisting of numerous lobes subdivided into smaller lobules connected by dense areolar tissue, vessels, and ducts. The ducts ramify inside each lobule, ending in alveoli. One kind of alveolus secretes a viscid fluid containing mucin. The other kind secretes serous fluid. The sublingual gland secretes mucus; the parotid gland, serous fluid; the submandibular gland, both mucus and serous fluid. The lobules of the salivary gland are richly supplied with blood vessels and fine plexuses of nerves. The hilum of the submandibular gland contains Langley's ganglion of nerve cells." Mosby's medical Dictionary, 3rd ed., p. 1049

Causes and Risk Factors

Blocked salivary glands are perhaps the most common salivary gland complaint. Blocked salivary glands denote a defect with the grand secretory system called the Endocrine system (also known as the Hormonal System).

Metaphysically speaking, salivary gland complaints may be related to having to digest too much of something (such as information or data), speaking negative words or digesting too much negativity.

Natural Remedies

You can resolve salivary gland complaints naturally.

Drink warm water, lemon or lime juice (from 1 whole fruit), and a pinch of cayenne (40,000 HU) or paprika (20,000 HU) daily. H.U. stands for heating units. Cayenne is hotter than paprika, and African Bird Pepper (180,000 H.U.) is hotter than regular Cayenne (40,000 H.U.)

Ideal herbs to consume, that heal the endocrine system, and thus the endocrine glands and all other glands in the body, include:
  • Sarsaparilla
  • Fo Ti
  • Licorice Root
  • Ginseng
  • Suma


You can also chew on Licorice Sticks, unflavored variety preferably.

Gargle with warm water and sea salt (1/3 teaspoon).

In a case whereby the mouth is dry and/or there is a lack of production of saliva, drink 6-8 glasses of water (with liquid chlorophyll added) daily, as well as drink vegetable juice daily, swishing the juice in your mouth from side to side for a few seconds (15-30 seconds) before swallowing it.

Suck on lemon and/or lime juice as well (if there is a lack of saliva). These usually help the body to secrete saliva.

Oil pulling will help this condition as well.

Dietary Intervention

When you suffer from a condition where the mouth is dry, the dryness felt is usually a result from a lack of saliva in the mouth or a lack of production of saliva in the mouth. Try drinking 6-8 glasses of water (with liquid chlorophyll added) and drinking vegetable juice daily, swishing the juice in your mouth from side to side for a few seconds before swallowing it.

    Q: I have read your article on "CALCULI: KIDNEY, BLADDER, AND GALL STONES". The question I would like to know is would the natural remedy you listed in that article also help with salivary stones. I have had problems with this for over twenty years now. I have had one of my submandibular gland removed due to the duct had become blocked and the swelling wouldn't go down. The doctor said that both glands had stones in them but they only removed the one. I still am having problems with the other gland and in constant pain. I have tried a lot of things to try to rid it or to ease the pain. I just want to be rid of the stones, the swelling, and the pain for good without having the gland removed. So again will this work for salivary stones.

    A:

    You can use the product for salivary stones! GO FOR IT!

    Q: My wife has had a lump underneath her tongue for the last 4 days. She visited the doctor today, and they told her it was a blocked salivary gland. Of course, they prescribed an anti-biotic, and told her if it did not work, they would recommend her to a specialist. My wife just entered into her thrid tri-mester which makes us skeptical of the anti-biotics, aside from that not being how we heal ourselves anyhow. I did some research about blocked salivary glands and I'm concerned. Are there any alternative treatments, therapies, herbs, or acupuncture, that will help her with this?

    A:

    These damn doctors prescribe antibiotics for every damn thing under the sun. Have her perform the Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse (which is very safe during pregnancy). Have her drink vegetable juice daily too! She can detox for the problem (blacked salivary glands) but the cleansing needs to be subtle. Check out the new Dherbs.com article coming out this week entitled "Salivary Glands Complaints."

    Q: I have been hearing quite a bit about the gene Leptin and if it is not operating properly we will maintain fat cells. What can you tell me about the hypothalamus gland and the release of Leptin in our bodies?

    A:

    The hypothalamus gland is a single gland of the endocrine system. Don't isolate one gland. If one gland is messed up the whole system (endocrine system) is impaired, so concentrate on your body wholistically. One gene can't do so much damage. Damage is the result of a few things gone out of wack in the body. Detox the body, give it the proper nutrition, change your thoughts and attitude, improve your diet and lifestyle, be active (move, be mobile), etc. and it is in doing all of this that you improve health and checkmate disease.

    Herbs that contain hormonal precursors, i.e. licorice, sarsaparilla, damiana, etc., benefit the entire endocrine system and every gland of the endocrine system.

    Q: Is sea salt and warm water a good natural laxative? If so how often do you recommend the use of sea salt for elimination? I was reading The Master Cleanser by Stanley Burroughs and it gives this recommendation, along with drinking lemon water mixed with organic syrup and cayenne pepper. Is it safe to give myself an enema 2xs per day using a hot water bottle filled with fresh squeezed organic lemon and distilled water? Asking this because Bzod had me to listen to 88.3 today here in Cincinnati and the guy (Mike) was telling how he does this regularly and has great results.

    A:

    Yes, sea salt in water is a mild laxative!

    I suggest you do it as often as you FEEL the need to drink or take it. It's really up to you, Beloved!

    I also recommend the Master Cleanse (cayenne, maple syrup, lemon juice). You can drink this as much as you like depending on how you feel.

    And yes, you can perform enemas 2X a day! Enemas are very helpful for health!

    Q: My son was diagnosed with Stevens Johnson Syndrome. Jan. 2007, 10-day hospital stay,. Jan 2008, 8-day stay. This is terrible, more like biological experiment results put in place a long time ago. I’ve been thinking, and feeling, he needed to be detoxified. I am not knowledgeable on these toxic, viral, bacteria, fungus, whatever this thing is. I just don't understand it. The doctors don’t either. Where does it come from? When did it come? My Son is 16 years, trying to finish school. I will continue praying and seeking answers. I know I want to help him to be, and stay safe from the diseases, syndromes, pharmaceutical medications, misinformation, streets, and bad association. Thank You

    A:

    "Stevens-Johnson Syndrome" Stevens-Johnson Disease takes its name from two doctors, Albert M. Stevens, American pediatrician, b. 1884; and F.C. Johnson, an American physician, b. 1894. What is Stevens-Johnson syndrome? Stevens-Johnson syndrome is medically defined as: “A serious, sometimes fatal inflammatory disease affecting children and young adults. It is characterized by the acute onset of fever, bullae on the skin, and ulcers on the mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia. Pneumonia, pain in the joints, and prostration are common. A complication may be perforation of the cornea. The syndrome may be an allergic reaction to certain drugs, or it may follow pregnancy, herpes virus I, or other infection. See also erythema multiforme.†– Mosby’s Medical Dictionary, 3rd ed., p. 1117 Okay, now to break things down in layman’s term for purposes of clear and simple understanding. So-called Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a medical term applied to a case of toxicity whereby the blood and lymph fluids are greatly polluted and toxic and whereby there is a large presence of MUCUS in the body (specifically the mucous membranes, the internal skin), which causes INFLAMMATION! When the skin is inflamed, mucus (thick, yellowish colored mucus) is usually the culprit. There are two kinds of mucus: bad mucus which is yellow-greenish in color, thick, stubborn and very sticky; and, good mucus, “a viscous, slippery secretion of the mucous membranes and glands, containing mucin, white blood cells, water, inorganic salts, and exfoliated cells.†– Mosby’s supra, p. 774 All skin conditions are blood disorders. The skin always manifests the condition of the blood. External skin problems also denote internal skin problems and what is the external skin? Answer: The mucous membranes! Mucous membrane is medically defined as: “any of four major kinds of thin sheets of tissue that cover or line various parts of the body. Mucous membranes line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, such as the lining of the mouth, the digestive tube, the respiratory passages, and the genitourinary tract. It consists of a surface of epithelial tissue covering a deeper later of connective tissue and protects the underlying structure, secretes mucus, and absorbs water, salts and other solutes. Compare serous membrane, skin, synovial membrane.†– Mosby’s supra, p. 774 Now, WHOOMP, There it is! Clearly, Stevens-Johnson syndrome is an adverse condition of the mucous membranes whereby the mucous membranes are inflamed (mucositis) due to an over-acidic condition (or acidosis). Now, in the definition of mucous membranes supra, it states the mucous membranes covers certain parts of the body and line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, i.e. mouth, digestive tube, respiratory passage, and genitourinary tract. Now in the definition of the syndrome itself supra, where does the syndrome manifest? Did not the definition (of Stevens-Johnson syndrome) say: “…. skin, … mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia?†Yes it did! Are not these body parts, cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside of the body? Yes they are! Well, there you have it! Clearly Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a big medical word (though not that big and/or complex) describing something so basic as a mucus congestion leading to skin inflammation of certain cavities and canals of the body that lead to the outside, i.e. MOUTH (which includes the lips), EYES (which includes the cornea), NASAL PASSAGE (which links to the nose), and GENITALIA. Causes of Stevens-Johnson syndrome Because this syndrome (disease) involves mucus that tie into (or stems from) acidity, we know that the physical manifestation of this disease stems from poor and/or insalubrious diet, one high in acid-forming and mucopurulent so-called foods and beverages, i.e. meat (slaughtered animal flesh), dairy products (cow snot and pus); refined grains (i.e. white bread, white rice, white flour, pastries like cakes, cookies, donuts, etc.) and starches and a host of other so-called foods, as well as soda pop, milk, beer, wine, coffee, cocoa, etc. The greatest culprit of the physical manifestation of this disease is MUCUS from acid-forming foods (DEAD FOODS)! But because diet is involved here, this means the disease degenerative in nature and is 100% REVERSIBLE via change of diet and lifestyle as well as mindset/thought process and attitude. Healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome naturally Like with every other major disease, DETOXIFYING the body is the first external step in healing from this disease. We actually begin the detox process when we begin to eat live, organic, sun-cooked or sun-baked foods, i.e. fruits and vegetables. Therefore, a change to a RAW FOODS and VEGAN-vegetarian diet would be ideal for healing. It would be wise to abstain from consuming all meat, dairy, refined grains, and refined starch products, and all acidic and effervescent beverages (i.e. soda pop, beer, etc.). Drink plenty of water (half gallon to gallon, depending on your body weight). Water helps to dissolve hardened mucus in the body. If you can find alkaline water, drink this water. The best waters are alkaline pH, negative charged, microclustered or structured, and ionic. The best way to get this kind of water is via ionic water machines from Asia. See www.ionizers.org/alkalife.html for more information. Soak daily in hot water (or warm water if you prefer), sea salt (1-2 boxes), and 1 cup 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Soak for at least 30 minutes before you start bathing. Rub your body down (from had to toe) after all baths/soaks and/or showers with Dherbs.Com OZ OIL. This is a miraculous healing oil and one of our best sellers! Our customers rave about this oil. There are plenty of herbs that can assist in the healing of Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Alterative herbs or blood cleansing and purifying herbs, expectorant herbs, and mucilaginous herbs are the ideal herbs here. Good blood-cleansing herbs include Oregon Grape, Pau D’ Arco, Echinacea Root, Manjistha, Goldenseal Root, Burdock Root, Dandelion Root, Ilex, and Yellow Dock Root to name a few. Good mucus-ridding or expectorants herbs include Mullein Leaf, Eucalyptus, Fenugreek Seed, Boneset, Elecampane, Coltsfoot, and Lobelia to name a few. Good mucilaginous herbs include Slippery Elm Bark, Irish Moss, Marshmallow, and Guar Gum to name a few. These herbs should be taken together in a compound or mixture (not every single one of them, in case you can’t obtain all of them, but most of them). Dherbs.Com products that can assist in healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome include FULL BODY DETOX (and CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) for small children), 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE, and 10-DAY SUPREME BLOOD CLEANSE kit.

    Q: I started taking Holy Basil two weeks ago for about 4 days and then all of sudden my supreclavical glands, and the back of my neck have been swollen. I have had blood work done and a CT scan and they can't find anything. I was put on Prednisone and a Z-Pac antibiotic but the swelling is still there. They want to wait a week and see what happens but Holy Basil is really the only think I changed. Have you ever heard of this. I am quite scared but between my two family doctors and now the ENT they are really stumped. Of course when I asked them about Holy Basil they didn't know anything about it.

    A:

    Sounds like the holy basil triggered a healing crisis effect. The holy basil has gotten your attention that you need to concentrate on your gland at the back of the neck. Try Licorice Root tea, 1 cup daily. Gargle daily too with warm water and a pinch of sea salt.
