Salivary Gland Complaints

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 recently had my whole thyroid gland removed due to cancer. My doctor has put me on Synthroid (150mcg) due to hypothyroid. I've gained about 20-25 lbs and I'm considering in purchasing your weight loss package ($165). However, I would like to know if you would recommend this product for someone like me with this kind of condition? Also, I've had several individuals and doctors tell me that my weight will not come off until my medication is at the right level and my body gets adjusted to the medication. Therefore, any diet and/or medication for weight loss will be ineffective. Please advise.

    A:

    You have a choice to make if you are still planning on taking medication (drugs) while taking herbs. If you are going to take herbs and drugs at the same time you are defeating the purpose. Herbs nourish and cleanse while drugs pollute and toxify. You have a choice to make.

    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!

    You can do it as often as you FEEL the need to drink or take it. 

    You can also consume the Master Cleanse (cayenne, maple syrup, lemon juice) if you choose. 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: I just got finished the Full Body Detox, and feeling good. But I still have the issue I was hoping the detox would take care of. I seem to have some swelling or puffiness under my ear; it seems to be the mucus gland, and or the lymph nodes by my jawbone near my ear, in the morning it always feels like there?s water in my ear. What would u suggest, I was thinking about the parasite cleanse, and I still have some sinus issues. I'm in MD and would like to get an ear coning cleaning, a foot detox, and a colonic, do u know of places in MD, or D.C.? Thanks again.

    A:

    Glad to hear your detox went well. Sounds like a lot of mucus buildup in the ear area. I suggest ear coning and lymphatic massage. Herb-wise, give the Parasite and Worm Kit and regimen a try; for sinus problems I recommend Sinus Formula and Mucus Buster. The Foot Detox and a colonic will do you wonders. However, I don't know of any places or practitioners of such therapies. However, a Dherbs resource is coming soon to help in situations like this. You may be able to get help at a natural foods store or Whole Foods Market where they have boards (message boards) where people list a lot of things.
