When I was vegan, I avoided the things that we all know are bad for our teeth--refined sugar, candy, soda, cake, cookies, etc. Grains, however, were the staple of my diet and I had never understood the importance of soaking them, though I do recall having read that before. Now, after reading this book, I finally get it and not only have downsized the amount of grains, but I make sure to soak or sprout any I eat. I also adopted the coconut oil pulling and saw great results with pain relief and the unexpected bonus of teeth whitening. I switched out my toothpaste for a tooth powder with ingredients recommended in this book and which I also found on amazon (simply sooney). As far as energy, I used to be falling asleep at my desk at 3pm at work, but I now find I no longer have those issues. I haven't gone to my dental appointment yet, but it's been 2 months, and I know that things are getting so much better. Not waking up to a throbbing tooth ache and being able to rinse my mouth with mouthwash are all the proof I need. I will continue with the program and am so grateful for this eye-opening book. It has forever changed my perception of the dental industry and of the role I play in my own health. Most importantly, it puts the power back in the hands of the patient. Our teeth are not just victims to bacteria hammering away at us. Reading about the communities in Europe with almost no instances of tooth decay painted a very vivid picture to me. If we create the right environment through our diet, then our teeth will nourish themselves and not be susceptible to decay. We no longer have to just accept that as you age your teeth decay and there is nothing you can do about it.
Lastly, I never review products. I love to read them but never find time to review. If you look at my track record on amazon, this is probably the only one I've done in years. I feel so strongly about it and am so grateful for the help, I had to write my thoughts. Good luck to readers out there about to embark on these changes. Trust me, it's worth it!
This book forever changed the way I view dentistry. I used to feel all this guilt, like I was a bad brusher or flosser and that it was inevitable that my teeth would need fillings, especially as I got older. Cure Tooth Decay allowed me to let go of this victim mentality and assume control over my dental health. I'll no longer rush off to the dentist for a quick fix!
What I did:
Took out all refined sugar from her diet. No candy or juice - except orange juice - fortified with vitamin a and d. I still let her have fruit, she eats mostly frozen mangos and bananas.
Very little processed food (an occasional cracker or bowl of pasta)
1-2 cups of whole raw milk (I purée it with banana and freeze it and call it ice cream because she doesn't like milk that much)
Bone broth chicken potato soup - I buy a rotisserie chicken from Costco each week. We eat all the chicken and then I take everything left over and boil it in my crock pot for 48 hours. I then make soup from the broth. I add all kinds of veggies and potatoes. She loves sipping the broth.
I also sauté my veggies in virgin coconut oil.
I brush her teeth 2x a day with coconut oil.
At night she takes 5 ml of fermented cod liver oil. I know this sounds crazy, but she seems to like to cod liver oil. She just lays down and takes it. She even swishes it in her mouth sometimes and calls it yummy??!
That all I have done and she no longer complains about her teeth hurting. I take her to the dentist for X-rays in two weeks. If I remember I will let you know what the dentist says. Crossing my fingers!
Took my daughter in for x -rays. They showed decay really badly just on the one tooth I was worried about. The others looked like they might be "arrested", meaning the decay was halted and he would feel comfortable waiting and watching on those teeth. The dentist was very surprised there was no decay on the back of the teeth. He was very willing to work with me on whatever I wanted to do, but recommended getting teeth fixed because of the danger of the cavities progressing and losing the teeth. I have her scheduled to have the teeth fixed at the end of April.
I have been doing some research and am going to try eggshells (recommended 1 crushed eggshell a day. You boil them and dry them and then put them in a banana smoothie). I update this is I remember. Here's to better X-rays next time.
