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. […]

Homemade Clay Toothpaste

Homemade clay toothpaste recipe

Cleaning your teeth with dirt sounds pretty oxymoronic, right? You might be surprised to know that clay toothpaste actually leaves your teeth feeling very clean. One of the things I like best about it is that it doesn’t contain glycerin, which doesn’t clean but actually coats your teeth.

Finding a toothpaste that met all of my requirements hasn’t been easy. I wanted something that: had no fluoride had no toxic ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate had no glycerin (which can coat teeth and interfere with the work that saliva is meant to do to help protect teeth from decay) wasn’t homemade (I know it works very well for many people, and there’s even a popular recipe on this website, but my family hasn’t loved it to this point) aided the remineralization process, actually […]

Rethinking Oral Health Care: A Homemade Toothpaste Recipe for Tooth Remineralization

Written by Courtney, Contributing Writer Several years ago, I started to question some of the ingredients in commercial toothpastes as well as the approach of modern dentistry in general. I view some modern dentistry practices as appropriate and beneficial. Yet, the foundation of today’s dental philosophy is similar to the mainstream medical model in that it focuses on treatment and not prevention. I believe the focus of dentistry (like medicine) should be prevention of decay and disease through sound nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. This […]
