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.

I was introduced to this diet 7 years ago. Began the diet with my physicians knowledge and was able to go prescription drug free within a year. The diet really works and the book not only gives the how to and recipes, it gives the scientific information to back up the evidence. I highly recommend this book/guide to all that suffer from intestinal disorders.
