Kiss Your Dentist Goodbye- anyone try Dr. Ellies complete mouthcare system? - Page 2

post #21 of 27

I found the book very helpful.  I never had a cavity until I was 32 years old when I was pregnant w/ my first.  All of a sudden my teeth went to pot w/ my pregnancies.  Something happens to my saliva and makes it acidic.  I found dr ellie's website on mdc and was so grateful.  Within days, my sensitivity went away. 

I am not advertising for anyone or getting any kickbacks from anyone, but I will say xylitol worked for me and my family.  Xylitol is old.  My bff from Europe told me her grandpa used to chew on bark that had xylitol in it 80 years ago. 

 

I agree that fluoride ingested is bad.  I have never given my children or myself (in 10 years) water from a tap w/ fluoride in it.  But I do have my children swish w/ ACT and spit out. 

 

I give my children vitamin d and check their levels once a year, so I know whether they are getting adequate amount.  CLO, has high levels of vit a which compete w/ the vit d. I know many agree w/ WAP, but I have done my own research and do not agree w/ clo.

Where I live our water is naturally fluoridated.  Not town water that has had fluoride added, but well water that has naturally occurring fluoride.  The region that I live in my state has more naturally occurring fluoride than not.  I know I am certainly not going to switch to all bottled water to avoid it.  Curious how those that do not believe in ingesting any fluoride would feel about drinking and cooking with water like mine.  I am not opposed to fluoride but would not supplement my child as I know she is getting it in our water.

 

As for xylitol, those looking to use this with young children you can get Spiffies xylitol wipes to scrub their teeth.  I use these when out and about and unable to brush after a meal.  I learned about them from a pediatric dentist.    They have flavors so my DD enjoy using them and likes to take turn wiping her mouth after I do it for her :)

I am all for doing your own research and making your own decisions, and I absolutely agree that there is a lot of controversy around CLO.

 

For those that may not be super-familiar with the issue, I just want to clarify one thing. Almost all CLOs that you can get these days are heated, thus destroying their naturally imbued vitamins, and then synthetic vitamins are added back in.

 

This is a very different product from Fermented CLO, which contains all of its own natural nutrients.

 

I'm not sure if you researched this aspect or if it weighed in on your decision at all, but I know it did weigh in on mine, and I just wanted to point it out :-)

 

Now, to go check out Dr. Ellie's site...

I posted this in December. I've kept up the xylitol gum and Closys rinse with my son. He saw the dentist today and NO CAVITIES! She said his gums looked great and his new permanent teeth that have come in look really good. DS was very glad because he was understandably worried about going after having 4 cavities filled in November.

It is too much to have him do 3 rinses so he is just rinsing with Closys after he brushes. Which I know isn't anything like her system but the ACT didn't seem to do much. I figure the Closys will help kill bacteria and raise the pH of his mouth. He goes back to the dentist in April so I can let you know then.

 

Good luck!

Dr.ELlie,
Will doing your system continously keep my teeth from falling out?

For about two years I have put my four children on the xylitol and ACT flouride consistently. A couple of months ago I took them to the dentist. Only one of my children had cavities. They other three did not. It works - consistency is the key to success.
