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.
The first thing is there is no one size fits all I think you have to know your body and make choices based on your needs. Based on the book I have implemented a few changes and it has made a big difference. The first thing I did was ditch my toothpaste and mouthwash for products without glycerin, I added oil pulling with clove oil or peppermint every other day and the water pick in place of flossing every night, finally I added a ton of oil to my diet and fermented foods. As an example, I added a four-ounce glass of goat Keifer (in the morning) a pickle or pickled beets at lunch and four ounces of kombucha or red wine (at dinner) every day. Then I added in black seed oil and the fermented cod liver oil and MSM with chondroitin. As for the food suggestions, it was a little much but I added in more steamed veggies cooked with grass fed butter with hormone free meat or sustainable fish cooked with ghee and reduced my sugar intake. In six weeks the brown spots in the middle of my molars have disappeared, my teeth are not sensitive anymore, my gums do not bleed and my teeth look whiter. Additionally, my ankle no longer hurts and my hair is shiny. I am now searching for a dentist who follows this tradition but I am pleased with my progress.
The only reason I took off a star is because I think some of the nutrition seemed a bit contradictory like for calcium why not eat more leafy greens like spinach or swiss chard? While I like the fish oil why not black seed oil and what about things like turmeric, mustard oil or garlic? Also, I am not sure raw eggs or blood products are a sound nutrition choice given the lead time in receiving food.
Then again if you are not sure what to do or how to start give it a go.
