Proof That Your Cavities Can Heal and Remineralize
The following research was performed by dental researcher May Mellanby, the wife of the discoverer of vitamin D, Edward Mellanby. The images are taken from children's teeth that have fallen out. They have been sliced thinly and then photographed.
Deeply Remineralized Cavity
What you see below is a slice of a child's tooth that had fallen out. The section marked 2D is where new tooth grew in due to dietary intervention.
This tooth shows a substantial area of new dentine formation. I do not have the exact research on the diet followed, but my assumption, based upon the feeding experiments of May Mellanby, is that it was a diet rich in yellow egg yolks, cod liver oil and raw milk.
There you have it. Tooth cavities can remineralize.
Completely Halted Cavities Picture
This was a tooth from a 4 year old patient. The patient had received cod liver oil for 3 years. The tooth surface was hard and smooth. It appeared polished. The was no staining with the dye, because the tooth was strong, and the stain could not penetrate. The tooth had a slightly brownish color. Again note the area labeled 2D, which is new tooth dentin forming because of the cod liver oil.
A Slice of a Tooth With Active Tooth Decay
The image shows a tooth with active tooth decay. The large stained area of dentin labeled "Active caries" has a deep stain indicating deep cavities.
Explanation of Image Notes:
D = Dentine, the middle layer of the tooth, known to remineralize
C = Active Tooth Decay
Pg = Pigment, a dye used to see the strength and permeability of the tooth
2D = Secondary Dentine, dentine that has formed due to damage of the tooth,
in other words, remineralized tooth dentine
I.S. = Interglobular spaces, small irregular spaces on the outer surface of the dentin in the tooth root.
P = Tooth Pulp
Stn. = A stain with a carmine red dye
Arrested Cavities Image
The section marked 2D in the picture is where new tooth dentin that has grown - that is a cavity healing. This next figure shows cavities that have been "arrested". The tooth is hypoplastic, meaning it was a poorly formed tooth. The recent increase of tooth cavities in children is likely due to the fact that they have poorly formed baby teeth as a result of a poor diet of both the mother and father prior to conception and during pregnancy.
The black stained area is active tooth decay. The area labeled 2D is secondary dentine, so the tooth here is remineralizing and the pulp chamber is being protected. This picture is from a 3.5 year old girl's tooth. Her diet was supplemented with vitamin D which caused the secondary dentin to form.
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
