How to heal cavities, tooth decay and gum disease naturally
As a holistic therapist it is not uncommon to encounter difficult cases where there seems to be a blockage of the energy healing pathways as progress is temporarily halted. Two areas of concern in this matter is the oral cavity and the intestines, also called our “second brain”.
Today’s blog is all about the oral cavity.
There is a common misconception that cavities or tooth decay are irreversible and that the only solution is to have part of your tooth drilled out and filled with a synthetic material. It is scientifically proven that there are ways to reverse cavities and gum diseases such as periodontitis naturally.
According to a study published in the prestigious British Medical Journal, cavities and tooth decay could potentially be reversed with diet.
A study was undertaken with 62 children with cavities and they were divided into three different diet groups.
Group 1 ate a standard diet plus oatmeal(rich in phytic acid).
Group 2 consumed a normal diet and took vitamin D.
Group 3 ate a grain-free diet and took vitamin D.
The results showed that group 1, who had a diet high in grains and phytic acid had an increase in cavities. Group 2 had improvements in cavities and less form. Group 3, who followed a grain-free diet with nutrient-rich food like vegetables, fruit, meat, milk, egg and supplemented with vitamin D, saw the greatest improvements – nearly all cavities were healed.
This study, backed by many doctors and dentists, prove that we have been misinformed about what causes cavities and how to reverse these naturally.
Dentist Ramiel Nagel, author of the book “Cure Tooth Decay” has helped many patients reverse tooth decay, emphasizing the importance of prevention using nutrient-rich foods.The days of dangerous amalgam with its mercury is luckily something of the past.
The cause of tooth decay.
In order to understand the link between diet and oral wellness, we must start with one of the most respected dentists who ever lived, Weston A.Price. He lived in the early 1900’s and was a chairman of the National Dental Association(1914-1923).
Weston Price travelled the world searching for the root cause of tooth decay and cavities. He saw many indigenous isolated tribes with perfect teeth and little or no tooth decay. But once exposed to a Western diet, they experienced tooth decay, bone loss, gum diseases and chronic illness.
According to the American Dental Association(ADA) the cause of tooth decay is:
“When food containing sugar and starches (carbohydrates), such as milk, pop, raisins, cakes or candy are left on the teeth, will bacteria produce acids and over time will destroy tooth enamel, resulting in tooth decay”.
The truth is that ADA is missing three important aspects that will contribute to tooth decay.
The 4 main factors in tooth decay are:
- Lack of minerals in the diet, Calcium, magnesium, silica,zinc and phosphorus.
- Lack of fat soluble vitamins A,D E and K, especially vitamin D deficiency.
- Too much consumption of phytic acid-rich foods.
- Too much consumption of processed sugar.
In addition to brushing and flossing daily, there are several ways to regain optimum oral health without resorting to fluoride. Read more about the fluoride deception, history and science in my book “New Lease of Life!”
1. Remove sugar
Probably the worst culprit of them all. Avoid at all cost. Kick that sugar addiction now. Cravings for sweet, sugary things goes back to a mineral deficiency: Calcium, magnesium, silica, zinc, carbon, chromium and vanadium, the two latter preferably in an ionic form.
Sugar is highly acidic and can literally decalcify or demineralize the structural content of teeth.
Basically this means staying away from sodas, candy and baked goods with sugar. Everything ending with the suffix -ose is sugar in one form or the other, especially high fructose corn syrup. Also avoid artificial sweeteners because of their health risks (neurotoxins).
2. Eliminate phytic acid
Phytic acid is a mineral blocker and enzyme inhibitor found in grains, nuts and seeds and beans and can cause serious health problems. With ancient food preparation techniques such as sprouting and sourdough fermentation, the phytic acid problem was eliminated.
According to research published in the scientific journal Lancet, a diet high in phytic acid creates mineral deficiency and causes osteoporosis. About 80% of phosphorus in grains and beans is bound to phytic acid and cannot be absorbed by the body, in addition to binding minerals necessary for oral health.
Phytic acid not only prevents you from absorbing minerals in your food, but it also leaches minerals out of your body, bones and teeth!
The powerful anti-nutritional effect of phytic acid can cause digestive disorders, lack of appetite, nutrient deficiency and tooth decay. A good rule of thumb is to limit your grain consumption and stay completely clear from unfermented soy products.
Phytic acid is much higher in foods grown using modern high-phosphate fertilizers, than those grown organically, so opt for GMO free and organic produce.
3. Consume raw dairy and nutrient-rich foods
Raw dairy is filled with vitamins and minerals that contribute to overall good health and help maintain strong teeth and promote oral wellness. It is loaded with calcium, vitamin K 2. vitamin D 3, magnesium, phosphorus and fat-soluble vitamins. Try goat kefir milk, raw cheeses and organic grass-fed butter.
4. Use mineralizing toothpaste
- 4 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons of baking soda (aluminium free)
- 1/8 teaspoon stevia
- 20 drops of peppermint or clove essential oil
- 20 drops of trace minerals
5. Try oil pulling
Used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine, oil pulling is an incredible oral detoxification procedure.
Simply done by swishing a tablespoon of oil in your mouth for 15-20 minutes. This simple procedure has been praised to cure gingivitis to migraines to systemic diseases like diabetes.
Don’t let the 15-20 minutes deter you, 5 to 10 is also good and a few drops of clove or tea tree essential oils for maximal antiseptic and anti-fungal power. The best time to do the oil pull is first thing in the morning. When finished, spit out the oil and rinse with vital, restructured water with a little Himalayan salt added to reinforce the antimicrobial properties.
Finally, brush your teeth as normal.
Take charge of your oral wellness today, and show off your new, healthy smile with pride!
Make sure to drink vital, alkaline, restructured, anti-oxidant water daily for renewed energy.
