a few weeks ago I realized I had a strange sensitivity when chewing but didn't give it much thought. That feeling grew stronger, though it was never painful, so a couple of days ago, I looked in my mouth (little mirror in mouth in front of big bathroom mirror - funny sight ;-) ) and saw that between two molars it was a bit black and a small hole in between them.
Great! ;-( I thought...
Just as a site-note, the last time I had a cavity is 15 years ago and I have been eating mainly raw for about a year now.
Still, isn't it interesting, all the things that happen to the body when it isn't in balance? Everything it does to become in balance again?
Thus I read up online. Isn't it possible for the body to heal cavity/tooth decay?
I came across Ramiel Nagel and his posts on Youtube (check out: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_type=&search_query=cure+tooth+decay).
I do agree with him in so far that I believe in the body's ability to heal itself.
But the dietary changes he suggests to cure and prevent cavities/tooth decay is - though mostly raw :-) - high in animal products. Actually, it's all animal products:
Liver, raw milk, butter, organic eggs, fish and organs, beef, shellfish, bone-broth (yes, seriously), etc. With all of that he says, it's best to consume it raw or medium-rare if cooked.
Plus-points for him: He recommends lots and lots of raw vegetables or home-made vegetable-juice to go with it.
In the end, for him it's all about getting lots of minerals and calcium into your diet so your bones and teeth grow strong. I get that.
But I don't want to eat all those animal products. Also, because you can find plenty of articles saying that calcium is absorbed better when it's vegetable- or fruit-calcium than when it's animal-calcium.
Therefore my question:
What raw foods do I need in my diet?
What would you suggest?
Thanks for reading. ;-)
Can't wait to hear what you say.
