Irregular eating will disturb vata.

Take a calcium, magnesium and zinc supplement.

For receding gums swish mouth with Neem oil for 1-2 min and either swallow or spit it out. Then massage the gums. It is a good thing to do before going to sleep so the neem oil absorbs throughout the night. It removes toxins and inflammation, it is also anti-viral. Also chew 1 tsp of sesame seeds for a long time before breakfast. They are a good source of calcium.
