Hi, I have been experiencing tooth sensitivity and receding gums that seems to be in correspondence with my change of diet to more sweeteners, carbohydrates and milk. I have changed my diet to help counter the heat created by a fairly rigorous yoga practice that I have been adopting over the last 6 months. Do these symptoms mean I should back off of sweets for a period? I am also mostly a Pitta type. Any suggestions?
