MouthShield Herbal Mouthwash & Gargle and MouthShield Toothpaste

MouthShield Mouthwash



My gums are continuing to improve - in fact I would say it is now at 90% of the healing process. I still cannot believe that I have suffered for 30 years from Gingivitis, after having tried many treatments unsuccessfully, and with your MouthShield, my gums are healed within a period of ONE WEEK, just as you told me! This is truly still amazing to me. I am seeing my friend Rosa tomorrow, to explain to her about the MouthShield.
Once again, thank you for this wonderful work you are doing.
Best regards,
Gigi (Portugal)


Just after a few uses of MouthShield my gums showed signs of improvement.
Thank you so much. Rodney. London


Alan, your MouthShield is unbelievable! I had very sensitive gums that always bled for years. Now after just 2 weeks they don't bleed any more, I really can't believe it! I'm overjoyed! Your MouthShield also has a great taste which makes it easy to take often through the day. Thanks so much. Linda. Birmingham.


A specific herbal mixture to be used as a mouthwash or gargle as a complete mouthshield for teeth, gums and tongue to give complete mouth confidence. You can now also buy MouthShield Toothpaste

Use this multiherbal medicine for tooth decay, gum disease, gingivitis, tongue inflammation, geographic tongue, bad breath, sore throat. Dilute in a little warm water.

The greatest cause of teeth loss after the age of thirty-five is periodontal disease (disease around the teeth and in the gums), which is preventable. Sound teeth require good oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist. Regular use of our MounthShield mouthwash helps prevent periodontal disease.

With this remarkable herbal remedy, after you have used it in your mouth to do its herbal work, you can swallow it so that it can work back on your mouth via your blood stream.

Some of the herbs used in this remedy are sage, thyme, peppermint, and many others, including stevia which is glucose-free and research has shown protects the teeth and gums. Instead of using sugar in your cakes and bakes, icecreams and desserts for your family, use our Stevia. Keep your teeth after 35!


Alan, I had to send you my testimonial. I had mouth ulcers for a long time (years) and tried of course all the usual treatments from pharmacy stores and from my doctor. Finally I consulted the top specialist in the country because they were really affecting my eating and lifestyle and health. He prescribed medicine which I used diligently for a year, but it had no effect. My mouth ulcers did not improve at all. I then as a last resort (sorry to say!) consulted you. You prescribed a treatment that included MouthShield. It was like a magic wand! Within 3 weeks the ulcers were cured. I could hardly believe it. What's more, they have never come back!! I'm a changed man.
Thank you so much. Paul S (Bournemouth).


Your MouthShield is brilliant! I use an inhalor and take a statin. I had thrush in my mouth and I was unhappy about it because it affected my taste of food and therefore my appetite. Your MouthShield corrected this within days, I could hardly believe it was so quick! I just put a teaspoon in some water and use it twice a day. I am so happy, because I'd tried all sorts of products both from pharmacies and in health food shops. Yours is a five star product. Thank you so much. SD. Barton-on-Sea, UK


Your MouthShield is by far the best mouthwash I've ever used. I love it's taste. I put about half a teaspoon in a little warm water as the last rinse after each of my teeth brushing; I hold it in my mouth for as long as possible then swallow it as you recommended - a wonderful last boost to my system at night.
Thanks for a brilliant herbal product.
Derek West, London.


Dry Mouth
A dry mouth is the reduction of salivary flow by at least 50%. It is usually caused primarily by drugs, but also due to salvary disease, severe haemorrhage, psychological factors, Sjorgrens syndrome, radiotherapy to the head or neck for cancer, and hepatitis C.
Saliva is extremely important to the mouth ecosystem. It is necessary for lubricating the teeth and tissues of the mouth. Saliva also helps the mineralisation of the teeth and facilitates taste sensation.
Without sufficient saliva dental caries becomes more common as also gum disease and mouth infections and candida. Obviously, chewing becomes more difficult as also swallowing and even speaking. The tongue also can become infected, or swell, become inflamed. This can lead to psychological responses like depression and social withdrawal (due to speech defects and eating problems).
Natural treatments for dry mouth focus on both fighting infection and stimulating the salivary gland parenchyma, whilst also supplying natural moisturising agents to improve good mouth health. Apart from drinking small amounts of water throughout the day there are significant herbs that can greatly improve mouth saliva either to be taken long-term (if the salivary glands have been damaged due to radiation or disease) or to help restore the natural function of the salivary glands. Herbs include aloe, euphrasia, marshmallow, olive, flax, and wild yam.

General advice to consumers on the use of herbal remedies from the Medicines Healthcare products Regulatory Agency

From the website of the Medicines Healthcare products Regulatory Agency ( Department of Health, UK

• Remember that herbal remedies are medicines. As with any other medicine they are likely to have an effect on the body and should be used with care. • Herbal remedies may sometimes interact with other medicines. This makes it particularly important to tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking a herbal remedy with other medicines such as prescribed medicines (those provided through your doctor or dentist). • Treat with caution any suggestion that a herbal remedy is '100% safe' or is 'safe because it is natural'. Many plants, trees, fungi and algae can be poisonous to humans. It is worth remembering that many pharmaceuticals have been developed or derived from these sources because of the powerful compounds they contain. Any medicine, including herbal remedies, which have an effect on the body should be used with care. • Treat with caution any herbalist or other person who supplies herbal remedies if they are unwilling or unable to provide written information, in English, listing the ingredients of the herbal remedy they are providing. • If you are due to have a surgical operation you should always remember to tell your doctor about any herbal remedy that you are taking. • Anyone who has previously experienced any liver complaint, or any other serious health complaint is advised not to take any herbal remedy without speaking to their doctor first.


Pregnant/Breast-feeding mothers

Few conventional medicines have been established as safe to take during pregnancy and it is generally recognised that no medicine should be taken unless the benefit to the mother outweighs any possible risk to the foetus. This rule should also be applied to herbal medicinal products. However, herbal products are often promoted to the public as being “natural” and completely “safe” alternatives to conventional medicines. Some herbal ingredients that specifically should be avoided or used with caution during pregnancy. As with conventional medicines, no herbal products should be taken during pregnancy unless the benefit outweighs the potential risk.

Volatile Oils

Many herbs are traditionally reputed to be abortifacient and for some this reputation can be attributed to their volatile oil component.(6) A number of volatile oils are irritant to the genito-urinary tract if ingested and may induce uterine contractions. Herbs that contain irritant volatile oils include ground ivy, juniper, parsley, pennyroyal, sage, tansy and yarrow. Some of these oils contain the terpenoid constituent, thujone, which is known to be abortifacient. Pennyroyal oil also contains the hepatotoxic terpenoid constituent, pulegone. A case of liver failure in a woman who ingested pennyroyal oil as an abortifacient has been documented.


A stimulant or spasmolytic action on uterine muscle has been documented for some herbal ingredients including blue cohosh, burdock, fenugreek, golden seal, hawthorn, jamaica dogwood, motherwort, nettle, raspberry, and vervain. Herbal Teas Increased awareness of the harmful effects associated with excessive tea and coffee consumption has prompted many individuals to switch to herbal teas. Whilst some herbal teas may offer pleasant alternatives to tea and coffee, some contain pharmacologically active herbal ingredients, which may have unpredictable effects depending on the quantity of tea consumed and strength of the brew. Some herbal teas contain laxative herbal ingredients such as senna, frangula, and cascara. In general stimulant laxative preparations are not recommended during pregnancy and the use of unstandardised laxative preparations is particularly unsuitable. A case of hepatotoxicity in a newborn baby has been documented in which the mother consumed a herbal tea during pregnancy as an expectorant. Following analysis the herbal tea was reported to contain pyrrolizidine alkaloids which are known to be hepatotoxic.

Breast-feeding mothers

A drug substance taken by a breast-feeding mother presents a hazard if it is transferred to the breast milk in pharmacologically or toxicologically significant amounts. Limited information is available regarding the safety of conventional medicines taken during breast-feeding. Much less information exists for herbal ingredients, and generally the use of herbal remedies is not recommended during lactation.

Paediatric Use

Herbal remedies have traditionally been used to treat both adults and children. Herbal remedies may offer a milder alternative to some conventional medicines, although the suitability of a herbal remedy needs to be considered with respect to quality, safety and efficacy. Herbal remedies should be used with caution in children and medical advice should be sought if in doubt. Chamomile is a popular remedy used to treat teething pains in babies. However, chamomile is known to contain allergenic sesquiterpene lactones and should therefore be used with caution. The administration of herbal teas to children needs to be considered carefully and professional advice may be needed.

Perioperative use

The need for patients to discontinue herbal medicinal products prior to surgery has recently been proposed. The authors considered eight commonly used herbal medicinal products (echinacea, ephedra, garlic, ginkgo, ginseng, kava, St John’s Wort, valerian). On the evidence available they concluded that the potential existed for direct pharmacological effects, pharmacodynamic interactions and pharmacokinetic interactions. The need for physicians to have a clear understanding of the herbal medicinal products being used by patients and to take a detailed history was highlighted. The American Society of Anaesthesiologists (ASA) has advised patients to tell their doctor if they are taking herbal products before surgery and has reported that a number of anaesthesiologists have reported significant changes in heart rate or blood pressure in some patients who have been taking herbal medicinal products including St John’s Wort, ginkgo and ginseng. MCA is currently investigating a serious adverse reaction associated with the use of ginkgo prior to surgery. In this case, the patient who was undergoing hip replacement experienced uncontrolled bleeding thought to be related to the use of ginkgo.
