Amazon Painkilling Drug For Dentists

Many people are afraid of the dentist because of reluctance to face the needle anesthetic before doctors revoke or fillings. But now there are new drugs that dentists can use without having to use needles. 

The new drug was found Barbira Francoise Freedman, researchers from Cambridge University in England, when he lived with Lamas Keshwa tribe in the Amazon rainforest. 

Indigenous tribes in the Amazon discovered the nature of pain (anesthesia) is remarkable Acmella oleracea plants. Since thousands of years ago, the plant has been used by the Incas to "treat toothache, ulcers, and abscesses, or clean their teeth.

Freedman became the first foreigner to be accepted by the tribe Keshwa Lamas in 1975. Since then, he spent 30 years of his life to live and visit the inhabitants of the secret. 

Painkilling properties of plant A. oleracea works by covering the nerve endings to the numbing effect for more than an hour. Drug efficacy in the form of gel that proved successful in early stage clinical trials. Without causing side effects, anesthetic drugs actually triggers a positive feedback from the patient's toothache. 

In early 2014, the drug of A. oleracea will be marketed by drug companies owned by Freedman, Ampika Ltd, part of Cambridge Enterprise, the commercial institutions of the university. If further research is successful, the drug will be used as a natural alternative to synthetic painkillers, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs. 

A. oleracea is a yellow flowering plant from the Amazon region in Peru, South America. Plants are never brought into South Asia by the sailors in the 18th century and the 19th, and is called "toothache plant". 

Freedman said the drug is very potential use in dental practice and is projected to reduce pain in babies grow new teeth. The drug can also be used in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome. "Treatment for a toothache means no longer need an injection of anesthetic in dental surgery," he said. 

The idea of ​​using plants as a dental anesthetic began in 1975 when Freedman first went to live with the natives of Peru. "One man noticed my pain. He then rolled a small portion of plant Acmella and told me to put it on the sore teeth and bite," said Freedman. "A moment later, the pain disappeared, and only came back several hours later." *** [TELEGRAPH | MAHARDIKA SATRIA HADI | KORAN TEMPO 3824]
