You Can Heal Your Teeth and Gums Naturally Not only is it scientifically-proven that you can heal cavities and reverse gum disease. It doesn't have to be complicated or difficult either. In this book, author Joey Lott, takes you on a journey of discovery that will empower you to make simple, sustainable changes and take charge of the health of your teeth and gums. There's More to Dental Health Than Fluoride and Flossing There are natural ways to heal your teeth and gums that don't involve twice daily brushings and flossings. In fact, these standard methods of tooth care may not be doing as much for your dental health as you've been led to believe. Discover a new formula for repairing cavities, tightening up loose teeth, and healing receding gums that is natural and inexpensive. Find out which supplements really work and which may be over-priced and over-hyped. Learn about the vital role metabolism and hormonal health plays in your ability to regrow and remineralize your teeth. If you've been on the path of natural dental health for a while, you might be surprised by what you read! It Doesn't Require Restrictive Diets! Too many nutritional approaches to improving oral health involve restrictive diets. No sugar. No fruit. And swigs of cod liver oil between meals of kale and bone broth. But this common advice flies in the face of science as well as real-world results using an inclusive, enjoyable, sustainable approach to nutrition. Following the simple nutritional and lifestyle guidelines in this book, you'll soon prove it to yourself.

Do you use nutrition, herbs and natural remedies to heal your body? Have you ever wondered why you couldn't heal your teeth the same way? You can. There is nothing mysterious or mystical about naturally strengthening teeth and restoring tooth enamel. Yet, despite the renaissance of information about other aspects of natural healing, natural dental care is a subject that has not been much discussed. This is partly because to talk about natural dental enamel growth or healing of cavities is heresy against the official dental establishment. And, it is partly because when people believe there is no solution to a problem, they don't bother to look for one. "All Natural Dental Remedies: Herbs and Home Remedies to Heal Your Teeth & Naturally Restore Tooth Enamel" gives you practical information about nutrition and specific herbal and mineral therapies, most of them from folk medicine, to heal the teeth and gums. These are common, inexpensive things anyone can get their hands on and try. The purpose of this little book is not to make an argument for alternative dentistry or against conventional dentistry; nor is it to persuade anyone that one way of doing things is superior to another. It simply presents practical information about the health and healing of the teeth and gums through nutrition, herbs, minerals and other alternative remedies.

Milk Really Does Do a Body Good Does milk cause osteoporosis by leaching minerals from your bones? Is casein bad? Can you really be addicted to cheese?

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.

Does Sugar Make Us Fat and Sick? Like fat in the 80s and 90s, sugar is the new nutritional devil. Sugar is the scapegoat for all of our woes. Got cancer? Well sugar feeds cancer! Got diabetes? You ate too much sugar; better cut back! Your kid's hyperactive? Clearly they've been eating too many Twinkies. And don't forget: Sugar is more addictive than cocaine and heroin! But is this "truth" too sweet to swallow? Free Yourself from the Fear and Hysteria Surrounding Sugar Pundits, politicians, medical professionals, and hucksters alike bombard us with their scaremongering. We're reminded often of the high rates of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and other diseases, and we're encouraged--sometimes even mandated--to reduce our risk. Amidst the hysteria, everyone is looking for something to blame. Sugar has become a scapegoat. In fact, sugar has been called "the new tobacco." But the evidence against sugar is practically non-existent. Time to Face the Sweet, Sweet Truth The consumption of high-fructose corn syrup has declined in the US since 1999, but people continue getting fatter, so there must be another explanation for the obesity epidemic besides overconsumption of candy and soda. It's facts like this that make Joey's Lott's latest book, In Defense of Sugar, a must-read. Lott cuts through the nonsense being sold by the likes of Dr. Mark Hyman and Dr. Joseph Mercola-the "anti-sugarists"-by digging deep into the scientific studies. And what do those studies say? That sugar, when included in a well-rounded diet, is not only not harmful, but may even be beneficial. Let's put it this way: If fructose is really so dangerous, early humans would have dropped dead from eating all that tropical fruit before they had time to create the next generation. Get your facts straight and put sugar back on your plate.

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.

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.

If you have bad breath, bleeding gums, cavities, or tooth pain—you need this book! If you suffer from asthma, diabetes, arthritis, migraine headaches, or any chronic illness, and have not found relief, this book could have the solution you need. All disease starts in the mouth! As incredible as it may seem, most of the chronic and infectious illnesses that trouble our society today are influenced by the healthy of our mouths. Our mouths are a reflection of the health inside our bodies. If you have poor dental health, you are bound to have other health problems. Despite regular brushing and flossing, over 90 percent of the population has some degree of gum disease or tooth decay. Most people aren’t even aware they have existing dental problems. Recent research has demonstrated a direct link between oral health and chronic illness. Simply improving the health of your teeth and gums can cure many chronic problems. More brushing, flossing, and mouthwash isn’t the solution. What will work is Oil Pulling Therapy. Oil pulling is an age-old method of oral cleansing originating from Ayurvedic medicine. It is one of the most powerful, most effective methods of detoxification and healing in natural medicine. In this book, Dr. Fife combines the wisdom of Ayurvedic medicine with modern science. The science behind oil pulling is fully documented with references to medical studies and case histories. Although incredibly powerful, Oil Pulling Therapy is completely safe and simple enough for even a child.

This book is not intended as a substitute for the medical advice of veterinarians. Readers should regularly consult a veterinarian in matters relating to their dog’s health, and particularly with respect to any symptoms that may require medical attention. In writing this book, we have described the signs and symptoms that will lead you to a preliminary idea of what is happening with your dog, so you can weigh the severity of the problem. Knowing when to call your veterinarian is very important. Delays can be dangerous. At the same time, we have sought to provide guidance for the acute or emergency situations that you must handle on your own until you can get your dog to a veterinarian. Life-saving procedures such as artificial respiration and heart massage, and what to do in the event of poisonings, obstetrical problems, and other emergencies are explained step by step. But a veterinary handbook is not a substitute for professional care. Advice from a book can never be as helpful or as safe as actual medical advice. No text can replace the interview and the hands-on examination that enables a veterinarian to make a speedy and accurate diagnosis. However, the knowledge provided in this book will enable you to more effectively cooperate and better understand your interactions with your veterinarian. You’ll be more alert to the signs of health problems and better able to describe them. You’ll know more about basic care for your dog, and you’ll be prepared in an emergency.

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.
