As we continue to consider children's health this month, let's talk about teeth. There are basically two parts to healthy cavity-free teeth: nutrition and cleaning.

Eating healthy is the fundamental principle for dental health: avoid processed foods, eat more greens, and calcium rich foods, and less sweets. The main problem with sweets is that they leech out calcium and other minerals from our body. This is also true of carbonated drinks, they leach out phosphorus, which is essential for strong enamel. 

Since children are growing at a fast rate, even from a good diet, they often do not get enough calcium and minerals to maintain healthy teeth. Most childre will benefit by supplementing the following: calcium, magnisium, vitamin D, vitamin K, phosphate, and vitamin C. All of these are vital nutrients that make up the teeth. There are different sources to obtain these, but my recommendations are: Herbs4You Calcium PowderDr. Christopher's Calcium, Juice Plus, Complete Bone & TissueGreen Pasture's Cod Liver Oilnatural vitamin C.  

Here are some points to adequately cleaning your teeth.
  1. Rinse Acids - Tooth enamel reacts with acids to form cavities. This is a chemical process where the proton of the acid pulls the phosphate right out of the enamel. Therefore, whenever you eat or drink acid, you need to rinse your mouth out with water. Simple, yet effective. This is another reason to avoid fruit juices unless you rinse your mouth out after.
  2. Oil Pulling has been used to help rebuild teeth and much more. It is a very effective way to clean the teeth and body. 
  3. Tooth Products - Absolutely NO fluoride. It is a hazardous waste, and there are several health problems with fluoride. It breaks down our bones, and there is no real evidence that it protects teeth from decay. Fluoride also lowers thyroid function. Secondly, stop using all toothpaste that contains glycerine, or sodium laurel sulfate (SLS). Glycerine coats the teeth, so the enamel does not re-mineralize, and SLS has been shown to cause canker sores.The following is recommended and proven to help the most:
  • Salt to strengthen gums
  • Pure soap or tooth soap with no glycerine
  • Bentonite clay or charcoal 
  • Herbs: peelu, oak bark, horsetail, comfrey, bayberry, myrrh, cloves
  • Xylitol - helps kill bacteria that cause dental decay.
