The Real Scoop on Burning Mouth Syndrome
Are you plagued with burning in your mouth or tongue, sometimes called Burning Mouth Syndrome or Burning Tongue Syndrome? Have you been to many doctors, dentists, allergy experts, or ear, nose & throat specialists who say everything looks normal?
Listen to this story. Jeannie, a vivacious 42-year-old mother of two children is a massage therapist and chef. She was living the idyllic life in beautiful northern California until Burning Mouth Syndrome came into her life. She now has severe burning pain throughout her mouth and tongue.
It started two years ago. Her life has become a living hell since then. She is not able to enjoy the great food she makes. Jeanine has a 45-minute routine of mouthwashes and pastes in her mouth at bedtime so she can fall asleep. She doesn’t have a life-threatening condition, but her life is miserable due to burning mouth.
She has seen eight different health practitioners. First, she sought help from a dentist, allergist, and ENT (ear, nose, and throat) specialist. Then, she sought help from alternative health practitioners including an acupuncturist, a nutritionist, and a homeopathic practitioner.
According to a review article on burning mouth syndrome in the International Journal of Oral Sciences:
“Most clinicians DREAD seeing the patient presenting with a primary complaint of burning pain on one or more oral mucosal surfaces (the lining of your mouth and tongue).”
DOCTORS DREAD SEEING YOU! WHY?
Because they don’t know what to do for you!
WHO AM I?
I’m Dr. Susan Sklar. As a medical physician, I have formal training as an Obstetrician-Gynecologist and practiced in that field for 25 years. Since then, I have been treating men and women with bioidentical hormones at my Restorative Medicine Center. I didn’t start out to treat men and women with burning mouth and tongue syndrome, but I noticed that as I treated them for hormone imbalances and deficiencies with a full restorative hormone program, their burning tongue and mouth improved or went away. So did burning skin and itching skin on shoulders, backs, waists, and thighs. There is solid scientific evidence for why this is true.
What Can Be Done?
One of the most helpful things is to get on a program of full hormone restoration. Hormones govern your nervous, reproductive, immune, and metabolic functions. Your best chance at recovery is to be under the care of a specialized anti-aging doctor. These are doctors who recognize that hormones are important regulators of your health
The Sklar Center is ready to provide the necessary treatment and support you need in dealing Burning Mouth Syndrome.
For those who are not able to find an anti-aging specialist, or who cannot afford the services of this type of doctor, we developed BMS Advanced Support. This treatment, which is a nutritional supplement, contains some of the hormones and vitamins that are known to help heal nerves.
So, what happened to Jeannie? She got on a hormone restoration program and has seen an 80% reduction in her pain. Her sleep has improved, she now can enjoy the great food she makes as a chef and her life is happier.
