White flour consumption vs. unbleached flour. What grains are healthy?
Question: Can you please clarify your recommendation regarding white flour. in one place it is said it has detrimental effects, in other place it is recommended to buy unbleached unenriched flour. How do you solve this controversy?
Answer: The way to prepare healthy grains is to prepare them the same way they have been prepared for thousands of years. A way that we no for certain does not produce tooth decay or other diseases. So each grain requires a different preparation method. White flour is toxic. The key to making grains healthy is in the preparation method.
I do not recommend you buy or consume unbleached flour. If someone wants to eat flour, and does not have much time, then unbleached flour will be better than other alternatives.
Question: Does this contradict to the basic principles of Weston Price?
Answer: Yes this does contradict what Weston Price said in his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. If you are referring to the Weston Price foundation, at the last conference numerous speakers advocated avoiding grains entirely. I do not really advocate this, although it will benefit some people. Although the foundation says to eat whole grains, I think that that statement needs to be made more clearly so that people avoid consuming too many grain toxins.
Question: Is soured (with whey or starter) semolina flour ok at active tooth decay stage and in general?
Answer: It is impossible for me to know if this will contribute to your cavities or not. Semolina is an unbleached flour so that makes it low in anti-calcifying properties. You would want to sour it with warmth, and preferably a starter.
Question: In order for wheat to be safe to eat, should it be freshly stone ground only or sprouted->dried->freshly milled?
Answer: I am not sure if sprouting is a necessary step. To make wheat safe to eat I recommend.
- Freshly ground (sprouting before grinding may be a good idea)
- Sifting (remove 25% of the wheat through a fine mesh screen, discard that bran and germ)
- Souring that includes warmth and preferably a starter or less preferably yeast. Sour at least 16 hours. The bread should be very well kneaded.
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
