Curing Tooth Decay Naturally

8 Comments

I wanted to share a resource that I recently found about curing tooth decay naturally. www.curetoothdecay.com

I resonate with a lot of the information that is on the website and I purchased the Cure Tooth Decay book, by Ramiel Nagel, as well. Even if you don’t want to purchase the book, the website has a lot of good information about dietary recommendations, etc.

Unfortunately, a lot of the dietary recommendations don’t necessarily help us because Moses is sensitive to a lot of foods that are recommended, such as:

  •  cod liver oil
  • raw grass-fed whole fat milk, butter, cheese and cream
  • eggs
  • fish, etc.

But, Moses can eat bone broths and homemade soups and grass-fed beef and lamb (we purchase local grass-fed, organic beef and lamb directly from farmers in NL). More about foods that inhibit tooth decay here.

We’ve also started giving him aloe vera, which is supposed to stop tooth decay.

Moses has yet another dental procedure scheduled next week (a sixth stainless steel crown), and I’m hoping that it’s the last one. I’ve talked to his Heilkunstler and we’ll give him powders before and after the procedure to help clear the effects of the anaesthetic, and the x-ray. I’m not that happy with yet another stainless steel crown, but according to the dentist, alternate materials won’t be sufficient due to the level of decay.

Talking to our Heilkunstler put some of my concerns to rest about Moses’ teeth. She really feels that as we progress through the treatment, Moses teeth will also heal. Teeth can actually remineralize themselves. Given that we have seen so much progress in Moses’ health since we started the Heilkunst homeopathic treatment, I have no doubt that she is right.

I used to feel a lot of shame and guilt about Moses’ teeth, but after the deep forgiveness last month and also attending an Advanced Munay Ki workshop (learning how to initiate others with the 9 great rites of initiation of the medicine way in the  ancient Inka tradition), I’m feeling a lot less burdened about Moses’ teeth, and actually about his health in general. I really feel that it’s all going to be okay. And so it is, and so it shall be.

Updates

April 26, 2012 – Moses had a dental check up today and his teeth are in good health.  No new cavities.  Yay!!!!!  His teeth have been stained by the daily antibiotics he is on (related to his immune disorder — something that I’m not a fan of, but DH and his doctors feel that it’s important).  I’m happy that the stain came off his teeth and his teeth are white again!!!  Yay!  We don’t need to see the dentist for another 6 months.

I feel that this is more good news and yet another sign that Moses’ overall health is improving. Read about what we are doing to help heal our son here.

  1. I’m so happy to read this. We eat a ‘primal’ diet. Mostly veggies, meats, eggs, fruits, nuts…etc, not as many grains. And we also get our meat from a friend’s dad who raises them grass fed. I’ve always wondered about teeth… especially since my Ped recommended fluoride for my son. It turned out that I got lazy and didn’t fill the prescription… but then looked into it and didn’t want to give it to him because I didn’t think he needed it. Now, reading this it confirms my decision that diet is really the best preventative for dental care… and everything else. Also, I’ve been learning about Vit A and D more and realizing how important both of those are and how they play a role in teeth too. Very interesting. Thank you for sharing this book!

  2. Wow Janice. I see how our children’s genetic disorders relate to this in a huge way. I look forward to looking into this more. Because of the Enzyme replacement therapy, the geneticist urged me to NOT administer any herbs to Emily. I assume the compatibility is non existent..ugh.
    Thanks for this my friend1
    Hugs to little Moses and the family
    Love Carla

  3. Cassie: Glad that it resonates! Sounds like you’re definitely on the right track with your family’s nutrition.

    Carla: Glad that this helps. Big hugs, my friend!

  4. This is very cool. We eat a fairly primal diet too. Very little in the way of grains (except quinoa) and lequmes (just chickpeas). Lots of fresh, raw veggies, nuts and seeds and local, organic beef, chicken and turkey. I tried being vegan for a few years and was vegetarian for 25 years; I’ve never felt worse. I suppose everyone is different but eating this way really helps me feel my best. As for teeth – I think it’s so interesting the links that are missed.

    The people of my city (London, ON) is currently going through the motions to try and get fluoride removed from the city water supply. Of course the city and dental folks are fighting tooth and nail. There have been so many talks and presentations and “specialists” claiming this is the cheapest and most effective way to control tooth decay. First of all, I don’t want my child ingesting fluoride (and we buy reverse osmosis water locally) and secondly, why not focus on prevention (via diet) than control (via fluoride).

    The other stat that is always brought up is that our teeth are much better now than say60 – 100 years ago…and before. I think the fact that we’ve been educated about oral hygiene is more likely the reason for this. 100 years ago people weren’t as likely to brush their teeth; we didn’t know of its benefits. NOW people brusth everyday…and often two or three times. I think this is more the reason for our decrease in tooth decay, than flouride mainstreamed into our public water supplies.

    Sorry I got a little off topic. This topic I find realy interesting. Thanks for sharing. We are currently looking into a holistic dentist for our whole family because I know the one we are at now (who Isaac has only seen once) will at some point really want us to give him fluoride. I don’t want to deal with a dentist who doesn’t understand why I won’t do that…and who isn’t open to accepting the way I want things done.

    Okay, my rant is over. 🙂 I’m going to look into that book too. I’d love to hear more about it as you learn more. xo

  5. Hi Debbie: Thanks for adding in your two cents. I feel the same way about flouride (which I’ve read is a neurotoxin).

    The author of the book says that people who ate traditional diets actually had less tooth decay, and doesn’t even think that teeth brushing is that important (compared to diet, which is sooo important).

    I was also a vegetarian, for about 7 years, until Moses was born, after which I was a voracious meat eater. One of the thoughts in the book is that children of vegetarians can have poor teeth because of not enough iron in the mother’s diet.

    I’m inspired that you and Cassie both eat primal diets. I think I’m going to look more into it. We tend to eat a lot of meat and potato /rice and cooked veggies in our family right now. I think I’m going to borrow the book, Nourishing Traditions, which is recommended for this diet, to get some inspiration.
