September 21, 2020 - Oil Pulling in Addition to a Diet of Traditional Foods -
"...The human mouth harbors billions of bacteria. There are over 600 different species of bacteria which call your mouth their home. With so many bacteria concentrated in one spot, it is easy to see how they can have a detrimental effect on oral health.
Despite daily brushing and flossing, over 90 percent of the population has some level of dental decay or gum disease. Consider this fact: one third of people 65 years of age and older have lost all of their teeth due to poor dental health. Our teeth were not designed to fail at a certain age. They were meant to last a lifetime. Apparently, brushing and flossing isn't good enough.
Diet is important. When Dr. Weston A. Price traveled the world in the 1930s studying the health and diets of various peoples, he found that those who subsisted on primitive or traditional diets had excellent dental health and died at advanced ages with all of their teeth intact. They had good dental health into old age despite the fact that they didn't brush their teeth, use mouthwash or dental floss, or see dentists. However, when they began to add modern foods into their diets, their dental health declined dramatically.
Diet affects the type of microbes that live in our mouths. Sugary foods and refined grains promote the overgrowth of harmful bacteria that promote tooth decay and gum disease. Our modern diet is loaded with sugar, sweets, sweetened beverages, and refined grains. Most of us subsist on foods that promote poor dental health. That is why 90 percent of the population has imperfect oral health.
Eating a more traditional diet of whole, fresh foods is one step you can take to improve the health of your mouth. Another step is to add oil pulling to your daily oral hygiene routine. Oil pulling is a method of oral detoxification that has proven to reduce dental plaque and gingivitis better than brushing and using antiseptic mouthwash. Oil pulling shouldn't replace brushing, but it should be a regular part of your daily dental care.
Oil pulling is basically rinsing the mouth with vegetable oil, much like you would do with a mouthwash, except you do it for about 15-20 minutes. I prefer to use coconut oil for oil pulling because it provides many health benefits missing from other oils. Oil pulling is best done first thing in the morning before eating breakfast. "Pulling" for 15-20 minutes sounds like a long time, but if you do other things at the same time, such as read the newspaper, fix breakfast, or take a shower, the time goes by fast.
When you are finished pulling, don't swallow the oil: it is full of bacteria, pus, and mucus. Spit it out. The way oil pulling works is that it draws or 'pulls' bacteria out of the mouth, thus reducing the number of microbes that can cause trouble. This allows tissues in the mouth to heal, thus reducing the amount of bacteria that is absorbed into the bloodstream. ..."

That is a true and fully factually-based statement, the light which is causing an uproar among those who are invested in the false belief that there is no cure for tooth decay!
Here is a free chapter preview from the book: "Cure Tooth Decay":
"What is important for the prevention of tooth decay--and Price stresses this point over and over again--is adequate minerals and fat-soluble vitamins, whether from animal foods, seafood or dairy products, and the absence of refined foods, especially white flour and sweeteners."

"Photographic Proof That Cavities Heal":
April 21st, 2016 -
A very short, nutrient-dense video on the dietary cure for tooth decay.:
"It is not possible to heal cavities on a vegan diet, and it would be challenging on a vegetarian diet. The nutrients that are needed for good dental and bone health do not exist in adequate quantities in vegetable sources. Persistent dental problems are the most common reasons why vegetarians and vegans return to healthy diets."
May 18, 2017 - Dr. Weston Price’s Diet for Curing Tooth Decay
Dr. Price is a Cleveland dentist who, more than sixty years ago, embarked on a series of unique investigations that would engage his attention and energies for the next ten years. Price was disturbed by what he found when he looked into the mouths of his patients. Rarely did an examination of an adult patient reveal anything but rampant decay, often accompanied by serious problems elsewhere in the body such as arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, intestinal complaints and chronic fatigue. He was also very concerned about the dentition of younger patients. He observed that crowded, crooked teeth were becoming more and more common, along with what Price called “facial deformities”–overbites, narrowed faces, underdevelopment of the nose, lack of well-defined cheekbones and pinched nostrils. Such children also suffered from one or more complaints of frequent infections, allergies, anemia, asthma, poor vision, lack of coordination, fatigue and behavioral problems.
How did Dr. Weston Price Investigate? -
Price’s bewilderment gave way to a unique idea. He traveled to various isolated parts of the world where the inhabitants had no contact with “civilization,” and he studied their health and physical development. He studied traditional Eskimos, Indian tribes in Canada and the Florida Everglades, South sea islanders, Aborigines in Australia, Maoris in New Zealand, Peruvian and Amazonian Indians and tribesmen in Africa.
In every isolated region he visited, Price found tribes or villages where virtually every individual exhibited genuine physical perfection. Tooth decay was rare and dental crowding and occlusions–nonexistent. Price took photograph after photograph of beautiful smiles, and noted there was an almost complete absence of disease, even those living in physical environments that were extremely harsh.
What Was Special About This Diet? -
Price took samples of native foods home with him to Cleveland and studied them in his laboratory. He found these diets contained at least four times the minerals and water soluble vitamins–vitamin C and B complex–as the American diet of his day. Wouldn’t Price undoubtedly find a greater discrepancy in 2014 due to continual depletion of our soils through industrial farming practices?!
Another surprise Price discovered was the diets of healthy native groups contained at least ten times more vitamin A and vitamin D than the American diet of his day! These vitamins are found only in animal fats–butter, lard, egg yolks, fish oils and foods with fat-rich cellular membranes like liver and other organ meats, fish eggs and shell fish.
Fat Soluble Vitamins and Dental Health -
Price describes the fat soluble vitamins as “catalysts” or “activators” upon which the assimilation of all the other nutrients depended–protein, minerals and vitamins.
Dr. Price concluded the foods that allow people of every race and every climate to be healthy are whole natural foods–meat with its fat, organ meats, whole milk products, fish, insects, whole grains, tubers, vegetables and fruit–not newfangled concoctions made with white sugar, refined flour and rancid and chemically altered vegetable oils.
What Is Activator X? -
Dr. Price found "activator X" as an important factor in tooth mineralization. Activator X is now believed to be the fat-soluble vitamin K2. It's related to fertility and occurs primarily in butter, when the cows eat rapidly growing green grass. To get this, many people add high quality, grass-fed, raw milk to their diet. After doing this, their cavities have stopped, and some can even see new tooth structure building. The power of raw milk or butter to stop cavities comes from the fertility factor present during certain times of the year. I suggest eating 1 tablespoon or more of high quality butter per day. Without this substance, the body does not have activating “messages” to the hormonal system to build healthy teeth and bones. In India, ghee from a cow or buffalo is considered a sacred food for pregnancy, breastfeeding and growing children. It is precisely this vitamin K2 component that assures bright white healthy teeth.
Nutrition Recommendations -
Here are the very important dietary changes for healthy teeth and healing cavities, based of Dr. Weston Price’s book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration:
Include pastured, grass-fed butter every day (see info about Activator X). It’s a nutritional powerhouse of vitamins A, D and K2 , heart-disease preventing CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), and so much more. The vitamin K2 in pastured butter is important for bone and tooth development and maintenance.
Include full-fat dairy every day (see info about Activator X).
Include eggs, and this includes the yolk—it’s where all the important fat-soluble vitamins are found.
Include organs and glands like bone marrow and liver.
Eat mineral-rich bone broths.
A variety of sea foods.
Fermented or sprouted grains only; no unfermented grains such as oatmeal, breakfast cereal, crackers, etc. Or even better, no grains at all.
Limited nuts; beans in moderation, only if they're soaked overnight or longer prior to cooking. This is due to the phytic acid content. Phytic acid easily binds with other minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc, making them unavailable. Read more information about phytic acid here.
Cooked and raw vegetables.
A limited quantity of fruit (one piece per day or less), but no refined sweets (ie: honey, maple syrup, juice, etc.).
Sunlight, high-vitamin cod liver oil, or vitamin D3 supplement.
No industrially processed food (ie: processed grains, breakfast cereals, bagels, pasta, crackers, chips, etc.).
Eat more Activator X (see above description).
Bottom Line: People who follow Dr. Price’s program watch their teeth re-mineralize, their cavities heal, and their gum disease vanish. Even small changes and modifications to the diet can make a positive difference.
If Dr. Price’s diet has helped you or someone you know, we would love to hear your story!

May 17, 2018 - Collaborated With medical Anthropology -
"... Dr. Price did report healing of cavities in adults on his nutritional program. The medical anthropology lit is also full of cases where cultures stop eating traditional foods in favor of white flour and sugar and develop rampant cavities. There are even instances where they reverted back to a traditional diet and their cavities healed. All this is published in 'Nutrition and Physical Degeneration'."

TEETH CLEANING? -
I see an incredible dentist who is beyond holistic. He says not to have your teeth cleaned because it damages the teeth and gums and strips all nutrients out. In fact, he says never to floss your teeth with string floss because you are causing trauma to your gums. Instead, he has us use a Waterpik (Ultra) and water floss twice a day. I could not believe the difference it made in my gum line in just a couple of months.
He also says not to use toothpaste or any of our homemade tooth cleaners. Instead, after brushing (only with a SoFresh toothbrush) and water flossing, gently use your brush to spread on Nancy’s Plain Whole Milk Yogurt so you are nourishing your gums and teeth and replenishing good bacteria to your mouth. Don’t rinse it out! There’s more to his protocol, but this part is key. He turned dentistry on its head for me, and brought me into a whole new paradigm of oral health. He is totally non-invasive, 100 percent holistic, and booked two years out. He has no website and only gains clients by word of mouth. He tried to teach his peers by showing them his successes but they said “if we can’t drill and fill, we don’t make money.” He is somewhat underground because he doesn’t want to lose his license or end up on the dead holistic doctors list.

November 9, 2018 - Thicker Enamel with Magnesium +
"Our teeth are designed to last a lifetime. And, they certainly can stay strong and healthy if they are supplied with the minerals they require in order to continuously rebuild themselves. Here is one listener and customer who can attest to that.
This is in response to an episode of your radio show when a listener asked about re-mineralization of the teeth.
I had two teeth where I had worn out a groove line at the gums, over time, thanks to my enthusiastic rough brushing. I was going to see my dentist as they had become quite sensitive. In the meantime, I upped my ReMag and experimented with ReMyte and in the space of less than two months I noticed that those teeth were no longer sensitive and the groove lines at the top where the gums start was gone and the enamel on my other teeth is now thicker.
Give your teeth all the minerals they require to stay strong and keep regenerating themselves. I recommend ReMag Liquid Magnesium, ReMyte Multi-Mineral Solution, and ReCalcia Calcium Solution.
If you have any questions about these formulas, our friendly Customer Service Guides at email@example.com are more than happy to assist.

June 24, 2017 - Sensitive Teeth
Here is an email conversation (Dr. Carolyn Dean) had with a long-time, loyal customer. She and her husband, both in their sixties, use the formulas in the Total Body ReSet bundle. They reported improvements to several longstanding issues.
… now that I have been on all the formulas for almost 5 years, I tried doing something that I haven't been able to do for 30+ years and, quite successfully! I have had to use a toothpaste for sensitive teeth since 1984 or suffer greatly with each brushing. I have now been using a natural toothpaste, a sodium lauryl sulfate free – fluoride free, a "not for sensitive teeth" one for the past week without any pain or discomfort whatsoever!!! Could ReMag have had something to do with this terrific outcome?
People say it's the ReMag and RnA Drops - BUT ReCalcia will also help!

October 15, 2017 - "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration - A New Vitamin-Like Activator" -
"...During the severe industrial depression, rampant caries developed in a great number of cases in the families of mill workers...twenty-seven mission children were selected on the basis of rampant dental caries. Since these children were all from poor homes, many of the families being on relief, one extra good meal a day at midday was provided for the entire group at the mission. This was preceded by administration to each child of one teaspoonful of a mixture containing a high vitamin butter oil. This butter was selected on the basis of its high content of activator X. It was mixed with equal parts of a high-vitamin, natural cod liver oil. The clinical effect was apparent complete control of dental caries for the entire group, as shown in the x-ray films. In many of these cases, the open cavities were left without fillings; and, in all such cases, the exposed dentin took on a hard glassy finish. There were many other evidences of betterment.
One of the boys, who was so weak at the beginning of the test that it was considered questionable whether it was safe for him to walk the two blocks from his home to the mission for the one reinforced meal a day, in six weeks was able to play basketball. He was dashing about as a star player, and there was no evidence of undue fatigue on his part in this strenuous game.
During the experiment, the home meals were not changed, nor was the home care of the teeth. It is important to note that the home diet which had been responsible for the tooth decay, was exceedingly low in body-building and repair material and high in sweets and refined starches. It usually consisted of a highly-sweetened coffee and white bread, vegetable fat, pancakes made of a white flour and eaten with syrup, and doughnuts fried in vegetable fat.
It is important to note with regard to the effect of the special nutritional program on this group of mission children that two different teachers came to me to inquire as to what had been done to make a particular child change from one of the poorest in the class in capacity to learn to one of the best. ..."
March 10, 2018 - Dr. Weston A. Price Reports on His Lunch Menu -
"The nutrition provided these children in this one meal included the following foods. About four ounces of tomato juice or orange juice and a teaspoonful of a mixture of equal parts of a very high vitamin natural cod liver oil and an especially high vitamin butter was given at the beginning of the meal. They then received a bowl containing approximately a pint of a very rich vegetable and meat stew, made largely from bone marrow and fine cuts of tender meat: the meat was usually broiled separately to retain its juice and then chopped very fine and added to the bone marrow meat soup which always contained finely chopped vegetables and plenty of very yellow carrots; for the next course they had cooked fruit, with very little sweetening, and rolls made from freshly ground whole wheat, which were spread with the high-vitamin butter. The wheat for the rolls was ground fresh every day in a motor driven coffee mill. Each child was also given two glasses of fresh whole milk. The menu was varied from day to day by substituting for the meat stew, fish chowder or organs of animals. From time to time, there was placed in a two quart jar a helping similar to that eaten by the children. This was brought to my laboratory for chemical analysis, which analysis showed that these meals provided approximately 1.48 grams of calcium and 1.28 grams of phosphorus in a single helping of each course. Since many of the children doubled up on the course, their intake of these minerals was much higher. I have shown in the preceding chapter that the accepted figures for the requirements of the body for calcium and phosphorus are 0.68 grams of calcium and 1.32 grams of phosphorus. It is obvious that this one meal a day plus the other two meals at home provided a real factor of safety. Clinically this program completely controlled the dental caries of each member of the group.
The chemical analysis of the saliva (1, 2) revealed a marked improvement which progressively increased. At the beginning of the test the average for the group showed a very low factor of safety, so low that we should expect tooth decay to be active. In six weeks the average changed to a condition which we should expect would be accompanied by a cessation of tooth decay. The saliva factor of safety continued to improve for five months at which time the special program was discontinued for the summer."
June 6, 2019 - Minerals
"Minerals are ionic conductors of electrical activity. Dissolved in bodily fluids they are ready to activate nerve cells and muscle cells. They also act as necessary cofactors to regulate, effect and affect metabolism at every level of the body. They maintain body pH and allow the transfer of nutrients across cell membranes. And they are all deficient in our food supply because minerals are never used in fertilizers to replenish nutrients. Instead, most farmers drug the soil with chemicals like Monsanto's Round Up, which binds up half the minerals remaining in the soil."
