Bad breath and bad teeth are almost always created by some form of bacteria that is out of control in your mouth.
One option is to keep doing what you’re doing and eventually watch your teeth fall out. The other option is to learn how to take better care of your mouth and teeth and then take some action. We are here to help you with option two.
Sure, daily brushing is key, but there are other steps you can take to improve things.
Like, better nutrition. If your diet is running low on vitamins A and D, or minerals this can pose a problem. Also, a diet consisting of junk food can cause hormone imbalances which can pose an issue as well.
If you eat a lot of beans, nuts, and grains it’s a good idea to start removing the phytic acid content. This can easily be done by soaking them overnight in a lemon water mixture (use 1-2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice).
1. Oil pulling
It has been used for many centuries and it is a type of oral detoxification. You should rinse the mouth with a tablespoon organic coconut oil (we recommend this) for 20 minutes and spit out. Start doing it for 3-5 minutes and gradually increase to 20 minutes. This method can also treat gingivitis, headaches, etc.
2. Remove sugar
Avoid foods that are high in sugar in order to have healthy teeth as the bacteria in the mouth feed on sugar. The sugar decalcifies and demineralizes the structural content of the teeth.
3. Eat foods rich in nutrients
Consuming minerals and vitamins can prevent tooth decay and it can even beat it. You have to consume green leafy veggies and healthy fats like nuts, seeds, avocado and coconut oil.
4. Remove phytic acid
The foods rich in phytic acid are grains, nuts, beans and seeds, but make sure that they are not GMO. This acid can prevent the body from absorbing the minerals from the foods. It leaches out of the body, bones, and teeth at the same time. Avoid foods that have high amounts of this acid.
5. Use mineralizing toothpaste
The toothpaste that is fluoride-free can be really expensive and many of us cannot afford them. But you can make one at your home.
You will need:
- 3 tablespoons of Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade Powder (we recommend this)
- 1/2 teaspoon of organic coconut oil (we recommend this)
- ¼ teaspoon of peppermint extract
- ¼ teaspoon of mint-flavored chlorophyll (we recommend this)
- ¼ teaspoon of baking soda
- 1 tablespoon of filtered water
Many think, that the cavities cannot be healed naturally, but toothpaste is great as well as the other tips from above. Try them out and heal the cavities.
