I use to have bleeding gums since I can remember. I broke my long term fasting diet by eating an apple. Since my first bite I stained the apple with the red blood of my bleeding gums. After a few days of eating normaly I have no more bleeding gums, for the moment at least. I hope this situation lasts for ever. I can now brush my teeth without staining my toothbrush with blood. The amazing thing is that now I aquired a new problem instead. I have parotiditis in both of my parotid glands. Could you believe that?. I am amazed. I hope this situation stops soon. My sinusitis still goes on but a bit weakened.
