Nutritionist Supports Whole Foods for Dental Health
I enjoyed your book and found it to be absolutely thorough. I appreciated the multi-dimensional approach that you took, including the spiritual and emotional components of health.
May I offer my perspective as a nutritionist and a long-time vegetarian (mostly vegan) who has raised two very healthy vegetarian children. Samuel is 23 and has no cavities. Samantha is 21 and has two cavities (she likes sugar more!). We get our minerals from organic foods, fresh pressed juices, sprouts, herbal tea infusions, nut milks (the nuts are soaked first of course), kombu added to our legumes and soups, mineral broths, etc. My kids do enjoy some high quality dairy. I use honey, maple syrup and granulated sugar cane juice very occasionally as sweeteners but have avoided regular use of all other sweeteners for years. We get our vitamin D from the sun, and the other fat soluble vitamins from raw, often soaked nuts and seeds, cold-pressed oils, chia, flax, and whole grains. I always soak my brown rice, quinoa, millet and buckwheat for eight hours before cooking, and when I purchase bread it is made from sprouted grains. The other thing that I think is very helpful is cultured vegetables... the acids produced by the friendly bacteria I believe help in the digestion and absorption of minerals.
According to John Robbins in his book Healthy at 100 the Hunzas, Abkhasians, Vilcabambas and Okinawans are primarily vegetarians... he says 95%, and they have very few teeth problems.
I believe with the right intention, along with openness and consciousness we can make any whole food diet that resonates for us work in our lives. My passion is to educate people who are inclined towards a vegan, vegetarian or raw diet to do so successfully.
Blessings of health and peace,
I purchased your book about a year ago and found it fascinating and encouraging. I am glad to learn of evidence that teeth which have suffered decay hae the potential to heal over and remineralize to the point of avoiding extraction, root canals or other invasive treatments. Pete N.
The protocol in this book isvery effective fr preventing and mineralizing cavities.

"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
