I’m sharing my homemade remineralizing toothpaste withcoconut oil recipe!
After having some heavy questions about our teeth and cavities I began doing a bit of research.
Have you ever wondered why broken bones can mend but your teeth can’t?
Can you reverse cavities?
How about why you can brush and floss regularly and still get cavities?
How about those cultures that don’t even have toothbrushes but still have amazing teeth?

Let’s take a look at other cultures’ cavities and dental health.

Our modern food choices have greatly affected our dental health. There are populations throughout the world that still eat a native diet and have no need for braces or dental care.
Dr. Weston A Price was a dentist who traveled the world investigating why some isolated native tribes had nearly perfect white teeth even though they didn’t own a toothbrush.
He compared their food choices with our modern foods and found some interesting things.
The main cause of tooth decay came down to these food results:
Too much-processed sugar
High phytic-acid rich foods
Lack of fat-soluble vitamins
Lack of minerals in the diet
Although these tribes of people with great teeth varied in location, they all had one thing in common. They all consumed foods high in fats.
Let’s Talk More About Foods High in Fat
These foods with fat came from organic meat products, seafood, and unpasteurized dairy. Most tribes also consumed fermented dairy daily such as cultured butter or kefir. Their foods were natural, low in grains, and unprocessed.
I want to take a minute to talk about Phytic acid rich foods. Phytic acid is found in grains, nuts, seeds, and beans. This acid actually blocks calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, and copper from being absorbed and can leech minerals out of bones and teeth.
Overconsumption of these phytic acid foods along with high sugar creates the perfect environment for tooth decay. This anti-nutrient can be decreased by soaking or sprouting your grains, seeds, or nuts before consuming.
Simple food adjustments can help remineralize teeth, cutting back on sugar processed foods, and reducing grain consumption are a great start.
Adding in fish and cod liver oil, unpasteurized grass-fed dairy products, and good animal fats as well as bone broth will give you a head start on your cavities.
