No longer do we need to continue to fool ourselves that we do not know the essential causes of tooth decay. The causes are known, and the prevention is both possible, necessary and the only sane next step.
Cure Tooth Decay New Secondary Dentine Forming, Tooth Decay Reversing
“After the nutrition was improved, the tissues of the pulp built in secondary dentine thus reincasing itself in a closed chamber.” – Weston A. Price, DDS
What you see above and on the cover are two x-ray images of the same tooth from one individual. The two downward projections represent the roots of the tooth. In the center of each root you will see a dark streak. These streaks, the root canals, are the spaces where nerves and blood vessels connect to the jaw.
The x-ray on the left shows a large and prominent dark area at the crown of the tooth. This is a very large cavity that leaves the pulp and nerves of the tooth exposed to the mouth.
The x-ray on the right shows the tooth after some time of nutritional treatment. A temporary filling was placed to protect the pulp from the pain of pressure produced by food. The result is a progressive filling in of the dentine, the new secondary tooth layer that, in many cases, is hard and glassy. In as little as six weeks time we can begin to rebuild our tooth dentine, creating new enamel and thus healing cavities.
The esteemed dentist, Weston A. Price, author of “Nutrition and Physical Degeneration,” and the first Director of Research of what is now the American Dental Association, discovered that it is the presence of special life-giving vitamins in certain foods that gives people immunity to tooth decay. These foods are rarely included in our modern diet.
Dr. Price’s discoveries have been swept under the covers of bureaucracy and lost amidst cultural attitudes that rarely seek real cures. His highly effective protocol for curing, preventing, and reversing tooth decay through nutrition alone has been known to only a few who have explored the depths of his written work. It is the application of this work that is going to be the subject of this eBook.
Even many of those familiar with the work of Dr. Price will benefit from the clarity and integrity with which I present my understanding of his protocol, his key points, and the reasons why many people fail to prevent tooth decay despite eating a more natural or traditional diet.
Tooth Decay Reversing Protocol
1/4-1/2+ teaspoon high vitamin or fermented cod liver oil 3x daily with meals* together with
1/8-1/4+ teaspoon of high vitamin butter oil 3x daily with meals, or 1-2 tablespoons of yellow butter per meal.
2-8 cups of raw grassfed milk daily (add 1 ounce of raw cream to every 6 ounces of milk for regular whole milk, drink at room temperature if possible).
2 cups daily of bone soup, made from slow cooking the bones & organs of fish, chicken, beef and so on.
1-4 tablespoons of grassfed bone marrow.
Eat several meals weekly, raw, rare cooked, or fermented wild caught fish.**
Eat several meals weekly, raw, rare cooked or marinated, grass-fed beef or lamb.**
Eat several meals weekly, raw, fresh oysters and/or clams.
Eat several meals weekly, raw, rare cooked, or fermented liver (grassfed – beef, lamb, chicken, fish, turkey etc).
Eat at least twice daily fermented foods like sauerkraut, yogurt and kefir.
Eat substantial quantities of vegetables, such as carrots, zucchini, broccoli, celery, string beans.
Avoid – It is important not to cheat here:
Sugar – White Sugar, Brown Sugar, Organic Sugar, Evaporated Cane Juice, Corn Syrup, Commercial Jams (Exceptions are, totally unheated honey, organic untreated maple syrup, rapadura, and stevia. Note: Many sweeteners still encourage tooth decay; if you have a severe or difficult case, only use stevia and avoid all other sweets.)
Flour & Grain Products – White Flour, Wheat Flour, Organic Flour, any unsoaked grain products. Examples: bread, crackers, cookies, doughnuts, breakfast cereals, muffins, pastries, tortillas, bagels, and sandwiches (most store bought flour products even from the health food store need to be avoided).
Hydrogenated Oils – like Margarine and Low quality vegetable oils, Vegetable Oil, Soybean Oil, Crisco, Canola, and Safflower (replace with organic coconut oil, organic palm oil, organic olive oil or butter, suet, or tallow).
Any type of junk, convenience food, or modern fast foods
Coffee, Soft Drinks, Nutrasweet, and anything with artificial flavors, artificial colors, or artificial ingredients
Soymilk, Protein Powder, and Excess Tofu
Pasteurized Milk, even if it is organic.
Non-grass-fed meat and eggs, and farm raised fish.
Alcohol, Cigarettes, and Drugs (including most prescription drugs & vaccines)
*2 tablespoons of grassfed liver can be used to replace every 1/2 teaspoon of cod liver oil.
**Medium and normal cooking is acceptable but not preferred
***Yellow butter is the best for bone growth, fish eggs are a good butter alternative as well as a diet supplement.
The fat-soluble vitamins are vitamins A, D, E, and K. In many cases these vitamins are either exclusively found in animal foods, or are found in abundance in animal foods. Weston Price found that this category of vitamins is largely missing from our modern diet.
Our chemicalized, denatured, and devitalized foods are missing fat-soluble vitamins. So it is no wonder why in our modern civilization, there is a large prevalence of tooth decay.
The fat-soluble vitamins are essential for your physical health, not just because they provide nutrients to the body, but precisely because they are activating substances that help utilize other minerals present in your diet. So even if you have an abundance of calcium and phosphorus in your diet, without an abundance of fat-soluble vitamins and activators, your body cannot utilize the minerals in your food.
Weston Price found that the Indigenous groups he studied that had the highest immunity to tooth decay, nearing 100 percent, ate liberally–that is, frequent, daily, and perhaps in every meal–from two of the following three principal vitamin sources.
1. Diary products from grass-fed animals.
2. Organs and muscle meat from fish and shellfish.
3. Organs of land animals.
