Then I lost a filling. The first dentist I saw diagnosed decay and a probable need for a root canal, and said that the tooth might already be dead. Her pronouncement caused me untold agony over the next several weeks. Then a holistic dentist determined that the tooth is alive and recognized that it has totally re-enamelized. He simply replaced the lost filling. He told me I am lucky, because most people are not able to get their teeth to re-enamelize like that. Well, I am now a believer. Nourishing Traditions is for real, and it was with Rami's explanation and guidance that I found a way to help my body contain the damage in my teeth. My relief at this outcome is immeasurable.
We have been conditioned to believe that the only opinions worth having are those that come from people who have been formally trained and licensed, but I believe that formal training can be restricted and biased, and does not necessarily consider all possibilities. Here is the work of someone who questions the knee-jerk assumptions of the industry and who has taken the trouble to do the research and the self-experimentation in an effort to find a better way. I am very appreciative that Rami has chosen to share his findings, relieving us from each having to go through the whole process of trial and error from scratch. And he brings some much-needed balance to a subject that is approached by so many from a place of fear.
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!
