The Not So Happy Birthday

By Dr. Andrew Jones

unhappy

Today happens to be my Birthday 🙂

I am 40 something..kind of losing track, I am able to still do the math( a good thing), but choosing not to.

Days such as today are usually happy in a way – I’m not really one for self congratulations etc.., but generally see myself as a positive person.

Until- the dreaded THROBBING tooth.

An aging filling- broken tooth, exposed root, many a needle to freeze it, and then this HOT and COLD sensitivity which ain’t going away.

Currently feeling sorry for myself, regretting that bite of COOOOOOLD ice cream.

My little rant.

Brush your teeth- and your pet’s teeth.

Pain control is a good thing.

A good single malt Scotch is NOT only a great Birthday gift, it is also most beneficial for a sore mouth.

Check out the 70’s pic.

    I know your pain, I was there about 40 years ago. I still don’t keep up with the math, (BTW, I have a math & business major). It doesn’t get any easier as the years go by, but you learn to accept the setbacks, do your best, keep smiling and carry on. It makes the burden a whole lot lighter. My “baby” is about your age, going through a nasty divorce and still keeps on “trucking”. My guess is, you can too. Just keep looking at the bright side. You have this site and a lot of followers, and that is something to be proud and happy about. So, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”

    Happy Birthday wishes! A good natural remedy for tooth pain that worked for me is to bite on a whole clove.

    Happy, happy birthday Dr. Jones!

    Please go to your dentist as soon as tomorrow morning, if possible. No need to suffer from an aching tooth. Have a professional look at it and solve that problem now, please.

    Awe, Happy Happy Birthday, everyone deserves at least one person to wish the a Happy Birthday.

    You should always celebrate the day you were brought into this world. Nothing ever should be un-happy about that. Everyone has a purpose, and you my friend have a greater calling and have your whole life. You have fought thru many adversities and are still standing and helping and teaching the people who are in charge of God’s greatest creatures big and small.

    If every animal could talk they too, would be wishing you and thanking you, for being born.

    HOPE YOUR DAY IS FILLED WITH SWEET SURPRISES, LOTS OF PET KISSES AND GIFTS OF GRATITUDE AND LOVE.
    AND REMEMBER LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY!.
    KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK YOU DO!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR INTERNET VET, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!
    yes cloves are a natural helper for teeth is all I know, plus get some serious pain meds which you probably have laying around hopefully! & get to the dentist to get a root canal & crown. Definitely not just dentine exposed from worn enamel? No. Probably what you said. Hope you feel better soon! No fun on your Bday to have bad pain! At least you can get to a vet on Friday, here its Saturday tomorrow. Yes thanks for telling it how you find it. Bye from Brindy my dog who had his teeth cleaned at 7 1/2, & had daily home cleaning 2-3 x a day for 6 months before that! But he won’t allow it any more. So just raw meat & bones He’ll be fine hopefully!

    Wishing you a great birthday Dr. Jones, and thank you so much for all you do. I have taken a more holistic approach to my own health in the last 10 years, (I’m 68 by the way) and I see myself being in so much better health than some of my friends my age. I love your new book. I received it some weeks ago and have already put it into use for my Parson Russell, Gus. He was being a bit lethargic so I took him to a canine-equine chiropractor and he is so much more energetic and happy since I have had him adjusted. The chiropractor, Dr. Rick Kauffman, developed the curriculum for adjusting animals at Parker Chiropractic college in Dallas and taught there for a while. His theories and practices are amazing and so very practical. You are so right, chiropractic for Gus is exactly what he needed.

    Happy Birthday…Remember age is just a number…I hope you get your tooth sorted soon…Nothing as painful…XX

    Happy Birthday, a day late. You might try switching to sensitive toothpaste. For some strange reason it actually does help with the sensitivity and will only cost the price of a tube of toothpaste. Worth a try. 🙂 Hope it gets better soon.

    There are many remedies for toothache out there and I’ve tried them all, as I have been plagued with dental problems my whole life, which is getting kinda long…. but I finally found a formula that does the trick for pain. It doesn’t fix the problem – you need a dentist for that – but it gets you through some really painful days until you can get in. Here it is: Tea tree oil, peppermint oil, tinctures of echinacea, bayberry, oak bark and cayenne. I don’t know the proportions. I had this formulated by an herbalist. It’s the only thing I’ve found that really works…always. Good luck and happy birthday, youngster!

  26. Dr. Bert Says:

    I almost forgot an important part of this remedy! It’s called How to Use It! Just put an eyedropperful into a small glass or cup with about 2 Tablespoons of warm water, then swish for a few minutes and spit! Don’t swallow the liquid. It’s not toxic, but it’s not tasty.
