A Typical Day Curing Tooth Decay

 YES! It IS possible to REminiralize teeth and reverse tooth decay!

This post is intended for those Parents already in the trenches with me battling toddler tooth decay. Many have asked what we are doing to cure my Son's (Orion  -17mo) decay and REmineralize his teeth. This is a good time to share. Today is a special day Abecause after 3.5months, the REminiralization and new growth is definitely VISIBLE! I will blog about our story in more detail in the future, but for now here is our protocol for those interested. I am sharing what has worked FOR US, please do your research and do what is best for you and yours.


I will start by saying that we were a healthy, organic, clean eating family prior to the decay and that this came as a complete shock to us. It has been a very humbling, difficult journey for me as it is for any parent experiencing this. But, it has also been empowering and rewarding. The body is amazing and once supported correctly, it is capable of regenerating and healing. The hardest part of all of this is having patience. Patience in knowing that things will get better. This whole journey has taught me trust. To trust the body to regenerate, trust myself to follow my gut and make the right decisions and to trust the universe.





Daily Mantra: "My Son has beautiful, strong, healthy teeth!" 
 Daily Mantra to Orion: "You have beautiful, strong, healthy teeth!" 

^Yes, they help! 


Please note that I made all of the same dietary changes to MY diet so that I could provide the most nutritious of breast milk to aid his REminiralization. I understand this is a 'controversial' topic. If Alcohol can inhibit breast milk, wouldn't excess sugar and gluten? Wouldn't the blood sugar level affect the quality of breast milk? Something to think about.... I  simply wasn't taking the chance and take full responsibility for the milk I am providing for my Son.  I know this whole lifestyle change may be difficult for some. Honestly, you have nothing to loose and so much to gain - your HEALTH! You will feel wonderful by cutting out gluten, grains and adding in all those nutrients!

Our diet (My son and I) was Gluten, Grain, Soy, Dairy-Free and organic, local, etc. We had a lot of fruit though. Orion wasn't much into food and was still BF a lot. He liked fruit and I had it so often (SAHM you know, fast on the go meal?!), there was so much in season that I thought it was perfectly ok for him to have some. I was WRONG! So we cut fruit completely out of both our diets. This is the ONLY type of sugar that him and I consumed and the biggest change to our diet. It was not easy, especially for me but Orion didn't seem to mind. Yes, if he saw a banana he wanted it and asked but I would offer something else instead. 

------------------------------------------------


Here is our Gluten, Grain & Soy-Free routine. We don't snack often and try to keep meals together to 3x/day.

Supplements:

  • 1/4 tsp daily Fermented Cod Liver Oil - Plain
  • 1/4 tsp daily High Vitamin Butter Oil - I buy them separately and combine them myself. That way I feel in control of the proportions and can keep track. 
  • Living Silica - I add this to his water This is the brand I use
  • Trace Minerals - I also add to his water This is the brand I use
  • Hyland's Homepathic Cell salts12  -  4 of each per day 
  •  Acerola Cherry powder (Whole food vitamin C)
  • Magesium: Epsom salt baths every other day 
 Food:
  • Pasture, Soy-Free eggs for breakfast every day. I try to change it up and sneak leafy greens and veggies in there 
  • Ground Beef with Organ meat: We have this at least 3-4 times per week with tons of veggies
  • Pasture, Soy-Free chicken cooked IN broth usually in soups 
  • Beef and lamb Stews cooked in broth with a butternut squash base
  • Fish: Wild caught salmon, Icelandic Haddock once per week
  • Grass Fed Goat Yogurt with a splash of Goat Milk (FOR Probiotics/gut flora)
  • Grass Fed, Homemade Goat Kefir (FOR Probiotics/gut flora)
  • Everything is always dipped in Grass fed, cultured butter 
  • Lots of Himalayan sea salt
  • Treat: VERY limited such as my NO-Crust Pumpkin Pie or low sugar fruit like ground cherries 
  • Homeade Bone Broth daily, I cook ALL his veggies in broth.
  • Raw Grass fed Cheese (once per week - he is not a fan yet)
Hygiene: 
  • Toothpaste: Mostly Coconut Oil, I used Cinnamon Earthpaste for a while once per day and now I am making my own using Great Plains Purified Bentonite Clay, CO and will add Xylitol soon.  
  • NO snacking 
  • Brush 20 mins after each meal
  • Drink water to rinse after meals (he can't rinse yet)
  • Clean upper lip with cloth and CO before bed and naps to make sure there is no food in that area. 
  • Make sure mouth is closed during naps so saliva covers his top teeth

 We are still Nursing 3x/night and did NOT reverse the upper Lip Tie. 

 

Trust. Patience. Consistency.
