Black Walnut “The Household Dentist”- for cavities and tooth repair.
A very helpful tea that helps my family and close ones who I have shared that recipe with with toothaches and abscesses. Talking from my experience it truly helps as long as you stay faithful and drink it as often as you can through out the day.
My 5-year-old son had half of his face swollen from the tooth that got treated the day before. Since it happened on a Saturday night I had to come to the method of giving him a cavity healing tea to drink. On top he was rinsing his mouth with a Sanguinarian/Mouth Wash every hour. He was drinking for about 4-6 cups of this tea a day for 2 days. I took him to the dentist on the third day on Tuesday. They took an x-ray of the tooth and were surprised how healthy it looked! His swelling went away too. Since Christmas was coming in 4 days doctor prescribed me Amoxicillin (antibiotic) just in case his swelling came back. Thankfully it never did! So glad I was able to help him and avoid antibiotics. Credit goes to Rachel Weaver M.H. who shared this recipe with me through one of her books!

I use reusable tea bags. Put one teaspoon in a bag and brew it in a cup of boiling water.
Adults – drink at least 3 cups daily.
I prefer drinking this tea hot. You may squeeze some lemon juice for a taste if you wish.
This tea works faster on kids since their bodies are smaller. I give my kids, including my one year old, this tea to drink once in a while as preventative maintenance. Add some sugar to sweeten it (optional). Make sure the tea is not hot when giving it to little ones.😄
More about black walnut hulls benefits that I can not be silent about: As a rich source of organic iodine, black walnut is a nourishment for the thyroid, especially where sea vegetables are hard to come by. It is also effective in enhancing the elimination of various microbes and parasites from the bowel.
For How Long:
This herbal tea is not recommended for a long term use. Drink it for 2-4 weeks than make sure to take a break of it. Allow at least two weeks of a break in between. Then it’s okay to repeat. It’s a good idea to rotate herbal teas unless taken for a certain reason like detox tea. Detox tea would be an exception of taking it daily for up to 4-6 weeks and than take a 2 weeks of a break from it.
