Gum Recession - Know the Cause
The mainstream medical paradigm will have you believe that if you have gum recession then you are a victim of bacteria that creates waste products that inflame and dissolve gum tissue.
Gum recession is fairly common. To be clear, gum recession is simply when your gums start receding away from your teeth. Tooth brushing too vigorously near the gum line can, for some people, cause gum disease. Regular teeth cleanings to make sure no plaque is sticking to the teeth at the gum line can help. Using herbs such as white oak bark powder can help limit or even heal gum recession.
There is, however, a deeper issue at play when your gums are receding. Receding gums is a sign that your body cannot sustain healthy tissue in the lining of the entry to your digestive system (your mouth). Receding gums is caused by an imbalance in your calcium/phosphorus ratios in your blood stream. This seems to be caused primarily by an imbalance in the gut. In other words, your body cannot digest the foods you eat properly, thus there are waste/toxins in your body. As a result, the gum tissue starts to recede. (In other people this can cause tooth cavities.)
What do you need to do? You need to improve your digestion: eat carefully, eat whole foods, take in appropriate nutrients as whole food supplements and hopefully your gum disease can get better. I have made a list for free of some of the most helpful tips on healing gum disease.
Dietary Guidelines for Gum Recession
Are there certain foods you eat that are giving you indigestion? Pay attention to this. Are you eating enough fermented foods? Kefir, which is fermented whole milk is an excellent food to promote digestion. I do not recommend buying kefir in the store. But rather getting "kefir grains" and making your own kefir at home. Other fermented vegetables can help as well. Some people have healed their gum problems simply with raw milk. You will also want to get some tips from the foods that stop tooth decay, as foods that stop decay should be able to help reduce your gum disease issues.

I had several very painful cavities postpartum (after having twins) that kept me up all night in pain and made it so I could barely eat... After following the advice in this book accruately my tooth pain subsided within 24 hours and no longer hurt at all, my teeth also look nicer and my gums no longer bleed and are a nice pink color. -J.

"The practical advice in this book really seems to be reversing my tooth decay!!! Hallelujah brother!!! The dentist wanted me to have two major root canals immediately and two other teeth filled. When I asked him if there was anything I could do with nutrition or supplements to get mu teeth to heal, he said "maybe you could slow the decay down a little bit" but that essentially the answer was no.
That dental visit was three mobnths ago and my teeth have stopped aching all together, are way less temperature sensitive, and feel generally stronger.
Most of us have been totally disempowered regarding the health of our teeth. This information has changed that for me. I bought the book for $28 anyway though. What a bargain, The dental work was going to cost well over $4000.00 no wonder dentists don't seem open to this stuff working! Talk about a biased perspective!!!
Think I'm excited, you will be too if you use this info to take tooth health into your own hands!"

"Not only is Cure Tooth Decay a practical guide to teach parents how to raise healthy children (with healthy teeth), it is also a helpfull tool for adults who have suffered with poor dental health and/or chronic disease. I would also highly recommend this book to people who are looking for things they can do to protect their bones, and their overall health, as they age. In other words, this book is a must read for everyone interested in improving their health." Pam Killeen New York Times nestselling Author
"Ramiel, You (along with Weston Price) saved my teeth. Was supposed to get a root canal (which I had no money to pay for). Tooth was in pain. After three weeks on the diet I can feel a big difference, tooth doesn't hurt now and feels like it's healing. Thanks so much. Unbelievable!" - Leroy, Utah
My cavity has gotten smaller! Once you are set free from being a slave to modern foods of commerce author continues to explain how the ancient people ate. They were healthy, strong and good looking. They had no cavities. They had no illness until familiar western culture came to visit them. If you are reading this review I am sure you understnad something is not right in the world. That we are born to live under a certain hypnosis. That we are taught to give away our responsibility to "people with authority", and those people cannot even take care of themselves. I recommend this book if you want the way out."Ranko, Croatia
