ALLSPICE

Allspice

As long as you're just using Allspice as a cooking spice, it's legal. The oil from it can help with toothaches, much like clove oil. I also found this:

"Allspice is on the Food and Drug Administration's list of herbs generally regarded as safe for external use, though its highly concentrated oil should never be swallowed. Ingesting as little as 1 teaspoon can cause nausea, vomiting and even convulsions." .... but if you have eczema or other inflammatory skin conditions, you're not supposed to use the oil on your skin.

Also, the active ingredient, eugenol, while an antioxidant in smaller doses, is actually becomes carcinogenic as you increase the dosage. The problem is, nobody knows where that threshold is, and apparently, it can differ significantly from person to person.

This single book has been more informative than any doctor I've spoken with. The opening chapters outline underlying causes for these various illnesses and go into great detail. This gave me the tools to better approach my doctors and explain what was going on to family members.
