Cure Tooth Decay: Remineralize Cavities Banner

Is Tooth Decay Really Caused by Mutans Streptococci?

History of Streptococci Mutans and Cavities

A long time ago, some people thought that tooth decay was caused by worms. I suppose they saw that worms ate apples, and then concluded that perhaps microscopic worms were what ate holes in our teeth. Today the modern theory of tooth decay is nearly identical, but rather than believing that worms cause cavities, we believe wrongly that cavities simply happen from the outside of the tooth inward, due to the acid waste products of bacteria called Streptococci Mutans.

A researcher by the name of Clark isolated S. Mutans in 1924. He thought they were a mutant form of the known streptococcus bacteria, so he called it, Streptococcus Mutans. Interestingly the original research associated the Streptococcus Mutans with human physiological decay, and not with tooth decay. This original finding allows us to see the key of the real role of the Streptococcus Mutans in relation to dental decay, which is that Streptococcus Mutans exist in a dormant state and that when the body is in a process of deterioration they become more prevalent. In plain language, we get more bacteria associated with tooth decay because our body is disintegrating (due to nutrient devoid foods).

Everyone Has Streptococcus Mutans

Streptococcus Mutans is a natural bacteria in the body. There are different forms of it, with certain forms being associated with tooth decay and other forms not being associated with tooth decay. For example, Tanzanian children immune to cavities (because of their diet) had Streptococcus Mutans. This confused researchers because they refused to look at the fact that diet is the cause of tooth decay, not Streptococcus Mutans.

Bacteria Evolve and Change based on the Environment

Antoine Bechamp, a French chemist, discovered microzymas, around the year 1869, little particles of life that exist in a dormant state. Further he found that these particles evolve and change based upon their environment. Bacteria in our mouths do not cause disease. Rather they have the same function as bacteria in soil: they rebuild dead or diseased tissues. It is known that they will not attack healthy tissue. Bacteria are vital to life and its processes. The presence of Streptococcus Mutans in someone's mouth who has tooth decay is the result of, and not the cause of, tooth decay.

Blaming Streptococcus Mutans for disease is a convenient way to ignore the real cause of tooth decay: our lifestyle habits. The food that we eat (and the exposure to toxic elements) in the world will cause, and if used correctly can cure, tooth decay.

Cure Tooth Decay

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
