Did you know that we had it all wrong until now? A lot of us have problems with dental cavities and we go to 1000 visits to the dentist. But if you follow our advice, you’ll never go to the dentist again!
After reading this, you’ll never go to the dentist again! We’ve always believed the doctors and we followed their advice. However, inevitably, we always end up with cavities on our teeth. We’re sharing with you the truth about tooth decay. But first, let’s talk about the lies about it.
We’ve been always told that cavities occur 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. So, over a period of time, these acids destroy tooth enamel, resulting in tooth decay.
However, there are a few problems with this theory, including:
Groups of indigenous people who had fermentable carbohydrates stuck on their teeth all the time that did not brush or floss were mostly or completely free of tooth decay.
Bacteria do not consume processed sugar or flour because of the lack of nutrients in them.
Foods that bacteria like to eat, such as milk, vegetables, meat, fish and fruit, are not commonly implicated in causes of tooth decay.
So you must be all confused and you should ask what is actually causing tooth decay?
Well, a lot of renowned dentists have made a research and it came down to these three factors:
Not enough fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) in the diet.
Not enough minerals in the diet.
Nutrients not being readily bio available, and your intestinal system not properly absorbing them. The presence of largely influences this factor.
So, over a period of time, the blood chemistry and the ratio of calcium and phosphorous become out of balance, which results in minerals being pulled from bones, causing tooth and bone loss.
To sum up, the long-standing belief that sugar causes tooth decay is true. However, it’s as a result of draining the nutrients from the body, and not because the bacteria eat it and produce acid that ruins your teeth.
We’re giving you an idea of what you should eat to to heal cavities and tooth decay:
In order to restore the ratio of calcium and phosphorus in our blood, and to enable minerals to bond to our teeth, it is not enough to just avoid eating too many sweet or processed foods. We must also eat health-building foods, containing abundant amounts of minerals and vitamins that will build a glassy hard tooth structure.
Here are some foods that you should focus eating:
Coconut oil, grass-fed organic dairy, especially butter, grass-fed meats, seafood and bone broths.
Organic cooked vegetables, such as soups with bone broth are ideal).
Organ and gland meats, like liver.
You should limit the foods that are high in phytic acid such as grains, beans, nuts and seeds. Additionally, limit the processed food full of processed flours and sugars that upset the blood sugar balance.
There are also some supplements that you should consider:
Fermented cod liver oil – very high in fat soluble vitamins A, D and K.
Magnesium – required to use calcium and phosphorous effectively.
Gelatin – if you don’t have time to make bone broth, this is a good alternative and is great for gums and digestion.
So, if you follow our advice and tips, you’ll never go to the dentist again!
