Do you struggle with cavities? Does your child? Does someone you love?
Why do we get cavities? Is it really from eating too much sugar as most people think?
Cavities are one of the most rampant diseases in America! Yes, cavities are considered a disease. A disease of the tooth, and just like other diseases, resulting from an imbalance. A dysbiosis if you will.
Cavities can be prevented and even healed (to a point) with the proper whole-body health strategies.
So, the following are some top tips for healthy teeth and oral microbiome, in a holistic way.
The biggest factor is nutrition.

Check out Dr. Weston A. Price, he is an excellent source for ancestral nutrition and cooking!
Include grass-fed butter and full-fat dairy, pasture-raised proteins including meat and eggs, organ meats, mineral-rich bone broths, varietal seafood, sea vegetables, fermented/sprouted grains, as many different vegetables as possible, low-sugar fruits, and no industrially processed foods.

In addition to staying with your routine hygiene visits, we recommended finding a dentist who uses the airflow GBT-guided biofilm therapy technology. It is the best way to remove bio film in the most gentle way possible. This retains as much enamel as possible.
Cavities can be re-mineralized or even arrested to a point! If you are providing your body with the things it needs to do so, it will heal.
When the body is in balance, it can heal itself. The superhero movies where regeneration is superhuman strength, well it lives in us every day. We have the power to regenerate our bodies. Every cell in your body regenerates at a different speed, for example, a year ago we are truly not the same “person” we are today. We have all entirely new cells.
