Throughout the years, dental health has often been characterized as a reflection of our overall health, where bad oral health results from issues with other parts of our body. But what if we flipped the paradigm? What if we thought about dental health as the foundation for our physical health as a whole? Dr. Steven Lin, an experienced dentist and the world’s first dental nutritionist, has analyzed our ancestral traditions, epigenetics, gut health, and the microbiome in order to develop food-based principles for a literal top-down holistic health approach. Merging dental and nutritional science, Dr. Lin lays out the dietary program that can help ensure you won’t need dental fillings or cholesterol medications —and give you the resources to raise kids who develop naturally straight teeth. With our mouth as the gatekeeper of our gut, keeping our oral microbiome balanced will create a healthy body through a healthy mouth. Dr. Lin arms you with a 40-day meal plan, complete with the Dental Diet food pyramid, exercises for the mouth, recipes, and cooking techniques to help you easily and successfully implement his techniques into your everyday life. The tools to improve overall wellness levels and reverse disease are closer than we think —in our markets, in our pantries, and, most frequently, in our mouths —if not just a well-chosen bite or two away.

A comprehensive guide to natural, do-it-yourself oral care, Holistic Dental Care introduces simple, at-home dental procedures that anyone can do. Highlighted with fifty-three full-color photos and illustrations, this book offers dental self-care strategies and practices that get to the core of the problems in our mouths--preventing issues from taking root and gently restoring dental health. Based on a "whole body approach" to oral care, Holistic Dental Care addresses the limits of the traditional approach that treats only the symptoms and not the source of body imbalances. Taking readers on a tour of the ecology of the mouth, dental health expert and author Nadine Artemis describes the physiology of the teeth and the sources of bacteria and decay. Revealing the truth about the artificial chemicals in many toothpastes and mouthwashes, Artemis also discusses the harmful effects of mercury fillings and the much safer ceramic filling options that are available. Covering topics that include healthy nutrition, oral care for children, and the benefits of botanical substances and plant extracts for maintaining oral health, Artemis introduces a comprehensive eight-step self-dentistry protocol that offers an effective way to prevent decay, illness, acidic saliva, plaque build-up, gum bleeding, inflammation, and more.
Free yourself from the downward spiral of scaling, root planing, gum grafts, flap surgery, chemicals, and the inevitable extractions and implants and cure gum disease (periodontitis) naturally. Ramiel Nagel's bestselling guide, Cure Tooth Decay, has inspired tens of thousands of readers to discover hidden and effective means to reduce dental cavities by at least 90 percent. In Cure Gum Disease Naturally, Nagel expands upon his original work and shows you the forgotten and suppressed cure for gum disease. The CDC now reports that about half of all adult Americans suffer from periodontal disease, with 8.5 percent of all adults having severe gum disease. And even worse, 23 percent of all adults aged sixty-five and older have lost all of their teeth. Despite the prevalence of periodontal disease, dentistry has not found the "cure" as it continues to allow adults to lose their teeth only to primarily offer the expensive and often painful alternative of dental implants. This is not a book that advocates for gum surgery, or for other chemical or harsh overpriced treatments with dubious results. This is a truly natural, holistic approach that primarily focuses on how you can use the food that you eat as medicine for your body, to give it specific and targeted nutrition, and to make your sad gums happy again. It will show you how to turn the frequent dreadful dental visits into a delight, and to help you stop worrying about the health of your teeth and gums so you can start living life-as you deserve to-once again. Take a bite out of life, improve how you feel, reduce your level of stress, and finally, at last, read a book that was truly written with a goal that you can align with, to get you out of the endless and unnecessary cycle of gum disease treatments that do not provide results that last because they never address the root cause. Cure Gum Disease Naturally is about you and your health. It begins with the story of how conventional dentistry no longer advocates and prescribes treatments based upon the agreed upon and proven cause of gum disease. You will learn how enlightened dentists Melvin Page and Harold Hawkins applied the research of esteemed dentist Weston Price in their practices to prevent the tragic loss of teeth by restoring gum health in their patients. You will then be led, step by step, through the evidence and the information that gives you a precise and detailed road map, using whole foods, to stop gum disease and to rebuild and repair your gums. Finally, you will be given essential information to navigate the dangerous waters of gum treatments, and find new ways to care for your teeth and gums that until now, few knew were even possible. Read Cure Gum Disease Naturally and learn how loose teeth can be firmed up and become rooted like a strong tree once again into your jaw bone, inflamed gums can become healthy, and bleeding can be greatly reduced and stopped. You will at last see clearly why you have succumbed to gum disease and know specific steps to take, by eating certain foods, to keep your gums healthy and thus keep your teeth for the rest of your life.
Every mouth is full of bacteria, yeasts, fungi and viruses. Can we stop these infectious microorganisms from making us sick? Today, with millions dawning facemasks, washing with antibacterial soaps, and sanitizing classrooms, hospitals and other public places, we need new solutions. Peer-reviewed research from some of the world's foremost microbiologists is now demonstrating that the probiotic bacteria in our mouth can be used to reduce or prevent infections from invading the body's internal tissues. Our oral probiotics can be our first line of defense against some of the most dangerous diseases, including those caused by aggressive bacteria, flu viruses and yeasts. In this groundbreaking book, the author details the newest research revealing the cooperative roles friendly oral bacteria play within our immune system to fight infection and prevent disease. Guidance on supplementation and on how to encourage the growth of our resident oral probiotic colonies is also described. A must read for anyone wanting to strengthen the immune system and stay healthy.
Forget about drilling, filling, and the inevitable billing. Your teeth can heal naturally because they were never designed to decay in the first place! They were designed to remain strong and healthy for your entire life. But the false promises of conventional dentistry have led us down the wrong path, leading to invasive surgical treatments that include fillings, crowns, root canals and dental implants. Now there is a natural way to take control of your dental health by changing the food that you eat. Cure Tooth Decay is based upon the pioneering nutritional program of dentist Weston Price, former head of research at the National Dental Association. Dr. Price's program proved to be 90-95% or more effective in remineralizing tooth cavities utilizing only nutritional improvements in the diet. Cure Tooth Decay is the result of five years of research and trial and error that started as one father's journey to cure his daughter's rapidly progressing tooth decay. With Cure Tooth Decay you will join the thousands of people who have learned how to remineralize teeth, eliminate tooth pain or sensitivity, avoid root canals, stop cavities -- sometimes instantaneously, regrow secondary dentin, form new tooth enamel, avoid or minimize gum loss, heal and repair tooth infections, only use dental treatments when medically necessary, save your mouth (and your pocketbook) from thousands of dollars of unneeded dental procedures, and increase your overall health and vitality.
