Cure Tooth Decay: Heal And Prevent Cavities With Nutrition - Limit And Avoid Dental Surgery and Fluoride Second Edition 5 Star

I haven't read this book but I saw it as a related item when looking at another book recommended on the DP (I think "Food Is Your Best Medicine" - something like that). A rave review below though about this "natural dentistry" book.

5.0 out of 5 stars It really freaking works!, October 4, 2011
By L. jarvis (ma)

This review is from: Cure Tooth Decay: Heal and Prevent Cavities with Nutrition, 2nd Edition (Paperback)

My 8 year old daughter has been plagued her entire life by consistent tooth decay. By 8 years old she has had 19 fillings, 6 root canals with silver caps and 5 extractions.

In May 2011, we went for her 3 month cleaning (we took her every 3 months). Big surprise, 3 more cavities. Only this time, something in me said no to fillings. She'd had enough.

I went home and called my sister upset over the news. She said to me, you have to read this book. She ordered it for me off of Amazon that day. When it arrived I read it cover to cover, taking notes along the way. Then I did it. I changed everything. I threw out our toothpaste for fluoride free. I started buying raw milk from a local farm. I started buying only grass fed meats, cheese and eggs. I gave her the cod liver oil every day...I cut back on phytic acid rich foods like whole grains...I KNOW what you're thinking...but if you only knew what those whole grains are doing.

I began sprouting and fermenting my grains and legumes. Then in September, I went back. By now I was ready for the dentist to say to me...see I told you so. Only she didn't. She paused. She looked at the xrays 3X and then looked at her teeth and then finally, at me. She sat up and said "I don't understand...her cavities have hardened over...this is impossible."

I began shaking...I really did. I was instantly as high as a kite. We discussed the new diet for 15 minutes as she took notes and then she said something she never thought she would say, "I don't see a need to fill these cavities at this time." The BIG bonus? I've lost 20 pounds while eating a ton of healthy, raw fats!! Who knew just switching from corn fed meat and dairy to grass fed would make such a difference on my waist!! But it was never about me...it was about saving my daughters smile. Thanks you to the moon and back for this book.

You know whats crazy and

You know whats crazy and sad... I think I have learned more about dentistry here on the DP than I did in dental school. I didn't question anything they told me. Amalgams, Fluoride were all considered good. The thing we studied was the best type of amalgam. I am retired and so I look back on the career and say, I went into dentistry to help people in that way. Retrospectively, I and we by our training violated our Hippocratic oaths to first do no harm. If only I could have a do over. Now that I have my DP dental education.


Did you study the science behind the treatments you were giving? Or did they just teach you how to identify stuff and apply the stuff that they say.

Doctors are Practitioners, Not Scientists

Most people do not make the distinction.

I don't think I have ever heard that before

But I agree, it's even intuitive.



Thanks for the post~

I added a section in my health post for Ramiel Nagel's book last December. It includes a few videos and presentations.


Below is the link to my general category on Oral Health. It contains a few different sections.


Too late for me...

My wife and I had changed our diets years ago and love the results!
And we are still reaping the benefits of heathy eating!

A few years ago I was in the hospital, near death.
Peritoneal cavity disease had spread throughout my body and damaged my teeth beyond hope.

Since then, regardless of diet and dentists; my teeth have gone from perfect to crumbling and falling out in just two short years.

At the encouragement of fellow DP members, I started an Indiegogo campaign to help raise the funds I need to get false teeth.
God bless the 3 funders (all from the Daily Paul!) that donated!

This is the final day of my campaign.

Indiegogo - Independent Musician Needs A Little Help

Since I launched the campaign, I have lost even more teeth.
Well, not really lost. I know where they are, they're in a plastic baggie!

I can't sing anymore and this has caused me to lose work.
I can still play but if you don't sing, the next guy gets the gig.

Through the Obama years, I have had to sell off most of my toys to keep up and maintain.
The 37' motor home, 27' Flybridge Sedan Cruiser boat, wave runner, etc..
I have one prize possession left and I fear I will have to sell her also.
My friends here at the Daily Paul will have first shot at it before I put her on the market.

She is a 1966 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible. :-)

Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and generosity.
Thank you for fighting for Liberty.
Thank you for being engaged and informed.

Thanks for posting! I love these hidden gems on the DP. I will try this out and see if I can close up my cavities. Hopefully I'll have something positive to report back in the future.

Bump & thanks

Was this the other book? I notice it is cross refernced quite a bit:

Weston Price: Nutrition and Physical Degeneration

Thank you for the heads up! My teeth are pretty good now, but when I was little, I was like that 8 year old kid. Lots of fillings. Most of them are gone now, with my baby teeth.

Sounds great. I'll keep it in mind, for the future. Cure tooth decay? Who knew.


He's the man.

actually read Dr. Weston Price's works

I would urge anyone and everyone, regardless of way of eating or their "food religion" to actually read Dr. Weston Price's works and figure it out for themselves. Don't let someone filter it for you or spin it to suit their beliefs or agendas.

I agree

read Price's work and Fuhrman's and others, and see what speaks to you. People here are smart enough to see what is spin and what is the author's attempt to share what he or she sees as honest and helpful information.

This Book?


I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

I always knew our diets was this issue with teeth

It never made sense that we needed to brush teeth, flouride treatment, etc to keep our teeth. That is all un-natural so made no sense to me. I will check this book out and see what happens.

Thanks for the info

Sure, no problem

Let me know how it works for you. I certainly wouldn't be surprised if this is yet another thing that conventional thinking is completely off on.

Well, there is no money in people eating right

Raw milk-no wonder they want it banned.
