How to Heal Cavities Naturally
No matter what you do and how much time and money you spend on keeping your teeth clean and healthy, you still keep paying frequent visits to your dentist. What’s more is that these frequent visits do not provide you with a permanent solution to your dental issues, but with many temporary solutions that are constantly dragging you back where everything started – at the dentist’s office. Well, it seems that you have been “trapped” in a continuous circle and now you desperately want to come out of it.
So, here’s the best advice you will get from us: turn to nature – there you will find the answer! It seems that the world is finally starting to acknowledge the natural approach to various health issues as the best one there is and to realize that even certain issues that were formerly thought untreatable can indeed be cured.
One of these health issues that have long been deemed as hopeless and incurable is dental cavities. Nevertheless, far-reaching inquiries into the genuine nature of tooth decay are now becoming more public and they show that there are proven cures that can help treat this condition successfully.
Below you will find a very useful video, which is going to show you how to naturally approach the treatment of cavities.
Lies about tooth decay (we all believed in)!
The American Dental Association reported the following to be the main reason for the occurrence of tooth decay:
“[Tooth decay] occurs when foods containing carbohydrates (sugars and starches) such as milk, pop, raisins, cakes or candy are frequently left on the teeth. Bacteria that live in the mouth thrive on these foods, producing acids as a result. Over a period of time, these acids destroy tooth enamel, resulting in tooth decay.”
However, this hypothesis has its shortcomings and inconsistencies, including:
- The presence of fermentable carbohydrates on tooth surfaces in groups of indigenous people, who did not brush or floss their teeth, did not result in tooth decay. In fact, these people were generally or entirely free of tooth decay.
- Owing to their lack of nutrients, processed sugar and flour are not consumed by bacteria.
- Milk, vegetables, fish and fruit are a few types of food that bacteria like to feed on, however, these are not commonly enlisted as reasons that contribute to tooth decay.
Since the above listed findings confirm that the existing explanation of tooth decay is not entirely self-consistent, you must now be wondering what exactly the reason for tooth decay is.
What exactly causes this oral disease?
Cavities or dental caries, more commonly known as tooth decay, continues to be the most prevalent chronic disease in both children and adults, despite the fact that it is mostly preventable. According to research findings by Dr. Weston Price and other dental researchers, the following three factors are the cause of tooth decay:
- Mineral deficiency in the diet;
- Deficiency of fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) in the diet;
- Low bioavailability of essential nutrients and their inadequate absorption in the intestinal system. This factor is largely influenced by the presence of phytic acid.
Eventually, provided that your diet is deficient of vitamins and minerals due to poor eating habits and/or has high content of phytates (from seeds, legumes, grains, and nuts), the blood chemistry and the ratio of calcium and phosphorus become unbalanced, causing minerals to be pulled from bones, which further results in tooth and bone loss.
Thus, the long-standing idea that sugar causes tooth decay is genuine, however, not because bacteria feed on it and produce acid that damages your teeth, but because it depletes your body of essential nutrients.
The following food remedies can help you heal tooth decay:
In order for the ratio of calcium and phosphorus to be restored in our blood, and minerals to be allowed to bond to our teeth, it is insufficient to just abstain from excessive consumption of sweet and processed food. We must also eat lots of healthy foods abounding in essential minerals and vitamins that will help create a hard and glassy tooth structure.
Foods that are highly beneficial for your teeth:
- Coconut oil, grass-fed organic dairy, grass-fed meat, seafood, and bone broths.
- Organic cooked vegetables (soups with bone broth are great).
- Organ and gland meat, such as liver.
Avoid eating the following foods:
- Foods high in phytic acid, such as beans, nuts, grains and seeds.
- Processed foods containing high levels of flour and sugar that upset blood sugar balance.
Supplements to consider taking:
- Fermented cod liver – very high in fat-soluble vitamins A, D and K.
- Magnesium – required for successful absorption of calcium and phosphorus.
- Gelatin – if you don’t have enough time to prepare bone broth, this is a great alternative and it is ideal for gums and digestion.
Now that you know what’s really causing tooth decay and how you can prevent it, wait no more – go and restore your beautiful, pearly white smile.
