A research study performed by Dr. Weston A. Price and Drs. Mellanby has shown that what you eat dramatically impacts your oral health, and you can revitalize your teeth.
Additionally, there have been self-proclaimed accounts of people who have reversed their cavities and revamped their oral health with the use of simple, natural remedies.
We are particularly interested in this account of oral “revitalization”, where the blogger states that she and her husband quit brushing, flossing and using mouthwash completely. Instead, they used a method called “oil-pulling”, where you ... (click below to read more)
Although we don’t know how valid /accurate their claims are, it is an interesting approach. We know of a few people who are currently trying “oil-pulling” out. If you have tried this, or are interested in trying it, please leave a comment!
1. How many / what types minerals you ingest.
2. How many fat-soluble minerals are in your diet, such as vitamins A, D, E and K.
3. How your body absorbs these vitamins and minerals and how phytic acid impacts your body’s health.
The more phytic acid you ingest, such as seeds, nuts and grains, the more likely you are to develop rot in your teeth. Most American diets contain these types of staples.
Also, as your body becomes deprived of essential minerals and vitamins it goes into a survival mode. It uses as few of the minerals it needs to get by, which means your teeth don’t receive the proper nutrients and eventually deteriorate over time.
If you want to identify your personal vitamin and nutrient deficiencies, consider taking our micronutrient test. The test is covered by most major insurance plans.
- Cutting out foods that have phytic acid.
- Limiting the amount of foods you eat that have starches in them—instead eat mineral rich vegetables, broths, healthy fats and meats.
- Eating healthier fats, such as coconut oil and grass-fed butter instead of regular oil and butter.
- Consuming more bone broth (homemade) each week.
- Cutting out beans, grains and nuts.
- Taking vitamin supplements, including Vitamin D and fermented cod liver oil.
- If you feel adventurous, test out “oil-pulling” as mentioned in the link above.
