Can a Cavity Be Healed With Nutrition?

Can a cavitiy be healed with nutrition?

I’ve probably had 15-20 cavities filled in my 32 years. Up until a few years ago, I always thought that cavities were just an annoying thing that happened, and there wasn’t a whole lot we could do to avoid getting at least a few. Lower your sugar intake, brush and floss well, and you’ll get less, right? When they do happen, simply get it drilled, and if you’re health conscious you can choose the white fillings over the silvery ones containing mercury. End of story. […]

I know. Cod liver oil. Yuck. Half of you just made a face as you read the title of this post. Bear with me, okay? In the midst of a month exploring traditional foods, I couldn’t hardly not cover this most important elixir, considered both a food and a supplement. If I could recommend only one supplement to every family, it would be this one. If my family were to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to bring one superfood to consume, in […]

Continuing on from the first installment of this week’s Real Food Makeover… What to Buy, Where to Buy It One fantastic thing that the “W’s” mentioned is that there is a an enthusiastic local foods movement in their area, including a co-op, farmer’s markets and CSAs. I think that the co-op would be an excellent starting place. Last time I talked about creating a kitchen binder, including a grocery checklist. During mom’s times of meal planning, she will be able to check off needed items […]

Valuing the Nutritional Wisdom of Past Generations

Image by Beverly & Pack One of my sets of grandparents hails from Newfoundland, Canada (that’s on the East coast, in the Maritimes). This particular Papa used to work on a fishing boat in the Pacific Ocean after they moved to the Vancouver, BC area, many years ago. Though many of the things that I grew up on were not so healthy, one of the nutritional highlights of my childhood was a whole lot of fish. Fresh fish. Amazing fish. And thankfully, I became a […]

Healthy, Natural Pregnancy: Prenatal Vitamins

  I’m interested to know which, if any, prenatals you would take or recommend. In all my past pregnancies, I’ve taken Opti-natals (aka Vita-natals), made by the Eclectic Institute, but they’re unavailable to me now, so I’d like some other suggestions. Amy About a week before delivering my first child, I had a sudden panic attack. What if there was something wrong with her? What if she hadn’t developed properly because of that one month when I didn’t take any prenatal vitamins, or because I enjoyed a few […]
