Studies have shown that there is very little evidence on cavity prevention from fluoridated water and whether you are for or against fluoride you may not know that it is present in your baby’s formula. Having fluoride in your water, in your baby’s formula and if your child is on fluoride drops exposes them to an excess amount of fluoride putting him at risk of fluorosis (tooth mottling). Fluoride can harden your child’s teeth initially but make them brittle after long term use increasing the risk of cavities. Studies have also shown that fluoride in excess can damage bones, as well.
Westernized countries like Demark, Sweden, Holland and Finland have removed fluoride from their water. Why not just address the cause of tooth decay? Rami Nagel, author of Cure Tooth Decay: Heal and Prevent Cavities With Nutrition did just that after his own daughter was afflicted with tooth decay at the age of one.
After studying the work of Dr. Weston A. Price, the answers seemed so clear to Rami. By using nutrition, Dr. Weston A. Price had reduced the rate of tooth decay 250 times in seventeen individuals who had severe tooth decay. Weston Price was widely respected in his time, and frequently published in many dental journals, including several articles in the Journal of the American Dental Association. Dr. Price documented that both water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins are missing from our modern diets. Our diet is so lacking in these special foods causing our bodies to degenerate. One symptom being tooth decay. By eating certain foods won’t cure tooth decay in themselves, but they are a part of the cure.
These special foods are as follows:
- Raw grass-fed dairy including, milk, cheese, cream and butter.
- Organs of sea animals including fish organs, fish heads, fish eggs, oysters, clams, mussels, and crab and lobster with the innards.
- Organs of land animals, including liver, bone marrow, tongue, heart, kidneys, pancreas, adrenal glands, gonads and for the more adventurous, brain, eyes and stomach lining.
Dr. Price found that a characteristic of groups containing a high immunity to tooth decay is that they ate regularly from two of these three food categories.
So why has Dr. Price’s wise words been forgotten? Rami Nagal is doing his best to make sure they’re not. By addressing the root cause of tooth decay we would no longer have to accept fluoride as our only hope and solution for tooth decay. Read his book, “Cure Tooth Decay: Heal And Prevent Cavities With Nutrition”, which describes alternative ways to healthy teeth.
