Tooth Brushing Won't Help that much with Preventing Cavities Because Your Diet is Everything
Dr. George W. Heard (DDS, Doctor of Dental Surgery) in Man Versus Toothache explains how ineffective tooth brushing is at preventing tooth cavities.
I say that cleaning teeth has nothing to do with whether they decay or not.
To cite an instance. Some years ago a patient came into my office from 20 miles west. The old fellow had never used a tooth brush in his life. He had the dirtiest mouth I had ever seen. His teeth were thickly covered with tartar, scales and caked food particles.
Mr. G. P. was not in trouble when he came to see me. His wife had persuaded him that he ought to have his teeth cleaned whether they needed it or not. When I cleared that lifetime accumulation of foreign matter off his teeth - a full day's work - to my astonishment, I had uncovered as fine a set of teeth as I had run across in 50 years' practice.
What Did He Eat to Stop Tooth Decay?
He ate a lot of vegetables and raw fruit when he could get it. G. P. was also a heavy milk drinker. He told me that he was particularly fond of buttermilk and clabber.
Woman with lots of Cavities Who Brushed Her Teeth Daily since Childhood
For contrast, a lady from a distant city stopped in Hereford one day on her way to California and called at my office. Mrs. N. had just about the cleanest mouth I had ever found in a patient. She told me that from early girlhood she had religiously kept the old textbook rule: "Brush your teeth after each meal." For all that, my patient had a mouthful of fillings, three or four to every tooth, between the teeth, near the base, and all around. There was more golden than enamel showing in her mouth.
What Mrs. N. told me about her eating habits bore out my theory completely. All her life she lived on pastry, cakes, pies, jams and jellies. She had eaten but little meat, raw or cooked vegetables or fruit. She drank tea instead of milk.
Why Tooth Cavities In Modern Civilization
People write to me explaining that even though they brush their teeth after each meal, they still get tooth cavities. This is because it is the food that we are eating, and not the germs, which cause tooth decay. Learn how you can heal and prevent tooth decay at home.
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
