Dear Dr. Ellie:
I started your system and I noticed that Closys makes me wheeze and it gets much worse each time. I’ve only used it 4 times. I think this is an allergic reaction to Closys. I remember trying Closys a few yrs ago and returning it to the store right away, but I couldn’t remember why so I thought I would try it again. I am pretty sure I cannot use Closys.
What can I substitute for closys? (profresh? something alkaline like vinegar in water? Another alkaline mouthwash like alkathyme?)
Thanks very much.
I suggest you alkalize your mouth with either salty water or eat some xylitol (a Zellies mint) before you brush.
It is a shame that you cannot use Closys since it has such a wonderful cleaning effect. Do you think diluting in water and gradually working up to full strength over a period of time may work?
