Tooth problem
« on: April 11, 2015, 02:21:26 am »
I've been trying to follow a"cure tooth decay" diet for the last 6 months, since the entire side of a tooth disintegrated with no warning. I was doing good but the last month I've been so busy(80 hour work week, etc., that over for the year) and also been sick and living on cough drops. That tooth had a couple crumbles come of the edge of the cavity last night and now there is a sharp edge rubbing my tongue, making it swell. Any ideas on dealing with it until it gets rounded a bit and loses the sharp edge?

Cough drops are an excellent way to get rid of your teeth as well as the rest of you.

Instead try raw fat it will coat the teeth reducing the damage done by the CDs  and probably stop the cough as it coats the upper end of the GIT which is usually destroyed by something like CDs.

ANother suggestion is to mix up some Bentonite clay with water, let it sit for 2 or 3 days and then before you go to bed take a tsp or two of it coat your teeth and leave it there all night.

Worked for me although really the fat has been the biggie.

Agree with both of these. Simply swishing with bone meal is also very helpful.

One other thing is to avoid sour foods like fruit. They are the kiss of death to your teeth.

If you must have them smother them in some variety of fat.

Agreed. Watery sweet fruits too, really, although they are not quite as bad.

That's true. Mangoes are not as bad if I only eat small quantities and they are ripe.

stay away from fruit in general, its horribly degrading to the teeth not only acidity wise at the surface, but what it does to your endocrine system and blood sugar levels, people who give themselves diabetes, with insulin issues who consume sugary diets are well known to have horrible teeth and gum issues.  what is your current diet like?  do you find pleasure in your work or does it exhaust you?  is there any chance you can scale back on working?  do you have a source of raw pastured milk or dairy? you can swish with all the above and also coconut oil and then cap the jagged edge with beeswax so you dont end up cutting the inside of your mouth
