I don’t believe in getting root canals or filling holes with amalgam. I think its possible to heal cavities naturally. Although, depending on a person’s lifestyle and diet, this can be difficult. If you have the discipline, you might be able to promote healing with the following suggestions.
Cavities are Going Down With Vitamin D & Calcium
People have healed cavities by consuming more vitamin D and calcium. You can get this from non-animal sources, but most studies I’ve read used animal sources for this method, so they were using Vitamin D3. In many cases, grains and nuts were restricted. If you are a vegetarian, I added multiple options to the lists below. The following foods contain a good amount of vitamin D, though don’t forget you can get this from the sun if you stay out long enough.
- Naturally Cured Salami, Ham, and Sausage
- Organic, Cage-Free Eggs
- Wild-Caught Salmon
- Free-Range Lard & Tallow
- Hemp Seeds
The following foods contain calcium. Like above, the non-animal sources should not be eaten excessively and they contain inhibitory chemicals, so be sure to do a lot of processing to extract more nutrients:
- Raw Cheese
- Raw Milk Yogurt
- Raw Milk
- Sesame Seed
- Poppy Seed
- Dark Leafy Greens
- Brussels Sprouts
Including the aforementioned is good, but it is wise to decrease or eliminate your intake of certain foods.
To further assist in healing your cavities, you should stay away from certain foods as they can increase the harmful bacteria in your mouth that cause cavities and tooth decay.
- Refined sugar
- Refined flour
- Boxed foods
- Pasteurized drinks
- Most food at fast food restaurants
You might want to limit (or eliminate) foods like the following while healing:
- Sprouted flour
- Sprouted Nuts
- Sweeteners like sucanat or coconut sugar
- Legumes, sprouted or fermented
- Fermented drinks like Kombucha
- Acidic drinks, like orange or lemon juice
Another thing you may want to include is a natural mouthwash that will help you combat cavities.
Several studies show that cinnamon and clove oil can break down oral microbes but cinnamon proves to be stronger. Both inhibit any further formation of cavities and disturb the cavity membranes.
Once cavity-causing bacteria are weakened by cinnamon or clove oil, your saliva comes in to wash the bacteria away. You can make your natural mouthwash at home by simply mixing the following ingredients:
- 4 drops of clove oil
- 4 drops of cinnamon oil
- 1 cup of water
- 2 teaspoons of natural sodium bicarbonate
- 1 teaspoon of vodka, which is optional.
- 1/8 of a teaspoon of raw honey
Make sure you shake your mouthwash before you use it. Just use the mouthwash as you normally would, and it should last a few days.
What you want to do is reverse the damage, and you might be able to do this with a few changes. These are just some tips as there are other ways to facilitate healing, such as using horsetail and consuming processed eggshells or softened animal bones for teeth repair.
