Curing Cavities with Nutrition - Page 35

Found the licorice extract lollipop that my dentist was referencing and have ordered 40 to give them a try http://www.drjohns.com/index.html They currently only come in orange flavor.

"Kavity Kops Lollipops

Dr. John's Candies has an excellent reputation of providing superb quality and delicious sugar free candy to the dental and medical community for over 12 years.

Now, Dr. John's Candies, in collaboration with C3 Jian and its Intelliherb™ extract, has combined their great tasting, orange-flavored sugar free candy formula with ground breaking cavity fighting herbal extracts to offer you... Kavidy Kops™ with glyactiv.

One Kavidy Kop™ with Glylic™ in in the morning and one lollipop in the evening, for 10 days, disables tooth decay bacteria for 3 to 6 months. Therefore, use a 20-Pack between 2 and 4 times per year, depending upon your Caries Risk Assessment category, to maintain effectiveness.

Herbal treatments have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over 3,000 years. Recently, after years of testing herbs associated with oral health, microbiologists from the Department of Oral Biology at the UCLA School of Dentistry have identified a specific herbal formula extracted from the Chinese licorice root that targets and disables the major organisms (Streptococcus mutans and sobrinus) that cause tooth decay.

Combining the precise amount of Glylic™ powered by Intelliherb™ with Dr. John's Candies' great tasting, orange-flavored sugar free recipe, creates a lollipop that temporarily defeats the bacteria that cause cavities!

For more scientific information on Kavidy Kops™ with Glylic™ go to:

Side Effects and Warnings
Licorice contains a chemical called glycyrrhizic acid, which is responsible for many of the reported side effects. DGL (deglycyrrhizinated licorice) has had the glycyrrhizic acid removed, and therefore is considered safer for use.
Many of the adverse effects of licorice result from actions on hormone levels in the body. By altering the activities of certain hormones, licorice may cause electrolyte disturbances. Possible effects include sodium and fluid retention, low potassium levels, and metabolic alkalosis.


Electrolyte abnormalities may also lead to irregular heartbeats, heart attack, kidney damage, muscle weakness, or muscle breakdown. Licorice should be used cautiously by people with congestive heart failure, coronary heart disease, kidney or liver disease, fluid retention (edema), high blood pressure, underlying electrolyte disturbances, hormonal abnormalities, or those taking diuretics.


Hormonal imbalances have been reported with the use of licorice, such as abnormally low testosterone levels in men or high prolactin levels and estrogen levels in women. However, study results conflict. These adverse effects may reduce fertility or cause menstrual abnormalities.


Reduced body fat mass has been observed with the use of licorice, but weight gain is also possible. Acute pseudo-aldosteronism syndrome has been associated with licorice. Paralysis has been reported in a patient taking licorice that contributed to low potassium levels. Thyrotoxic periodic paralysis (TPP) has been associated with licorice. Metabolic alkalosis and seizure has been reported from licorice in antacid.


Licorice has been reported to cause high blood pressure, including dangerously high blood pressure with symptoms such as headache, nausea, vomiting, and hypertensive encephalopathy with stroke-like effects (for example, one-sided weakness).


High doses of licorice may cause temporary vision problems or loss. Ocular side effects have been reported. Central retinal vein occlusion has been associated with licorice. A case report exists of licorice-induced hypokalemia associated with dropped head syndrome (DHS).

I just need a quick list of what to get? please help me....I have read this thread and its awesome but its so much for me to take in My 22 mth old has tooth decay on her 4 front teeth and her 2 back molars, pedi dentist wants me to have her put under to fill her front teeth and give her baby root canels for her molars, I disagree w/this and want to reverse or at least stop the decay...please help? I bought Spry spray, but I am not sure what else to use? Should I use the Cod Liver Oil liquid for me and her? Anything else?
post #686 of 861
I have a post here with same info but you can see my blog here http://familypendragonshop.blogspot....r-regimen.html with a list and links. We have since added Kavity Kops Lollipops and Restore Toothpaste. We have stopped using the ionic tootbrush. Feel free to contact me for any help I can give you. I feel your pain

Some interesting if conflicting information on licorice. I have put a call in to Dr Johns to see if I can determine a dosage level in a sucker. Apparently, from reading some of your links, 10 - 12 mg per day is considered safe even for sensitive individuals. So I'll see what is in 2 suckers a day. Certainly herbal medicines can have side effects too. But used properly they can also be beneficial. We all have to determine for our selves what does the least harm. I would think that trace doses of licorice would be better than the repeated doses of general anesthesia and morphine for my 2 year old son.

Melissa - I just read your blog page. We were recommended Standard Process Catalyn and Bio-Dent too! How many of each does your son take? Mine is 4.5yo, and he takes 2 Catalyns (this one seems to give him lots of energy, so can't give him too many), and 2 Bio-Dents twice a day.

I see spots on his teeth, especially between some of his front teeth, that are powdery white like you explained. I thought the hygienist missed a few spots when cleaning his teeth. So I bought a scaler and tried to scrape it off, but it's still there. So I think they're going to turn into cavities. I THINK the whites are getting smaller, so I still have some hope! But why didn't the hygienist or the dentist say anything about them? Hmmmm....

And I now see brown spots on his molars where they used to be white. If I remember from several pages back, that's a sign that the cavities are going away, is that right? I'm going to go look for that page...

These are a fight with him. The days I can grind it and get the vitamins in him in juice he gets one of each. But when I can't get them into him I will give him 2 chewable ones by Nature's Plus - Animal shaped ones from the local healthfood store. I can't say what the various spots are in your case, but I can tell you our sequence seemed to be white chalky spots (apparently decalcification) which became tan spots (apparently loss of enamel) and then pits. Once we hit the tan stage the pits formed very quickly and basically hollowed out the centers of his molars.

Our morning ritual right now is:

1 ml fermented cod liver oil floating on a little organic blueberry juice in a condiment cup the size of a shot glass with a vitamin k2 drop in it.

1 tsp Natural Calm magnesium baby supplement in a cup of reverse osmosis filtered water. (Or mixed with the vitamins below)

Vitamins powdered in a little blueberry juice with some Acerola powder. Or 2 chewable multis.

Kefir with raw honey or raw milk depending on what he will drink that day.

Either sprouted grain bread toast from Food for Life, homemade soaked grain pancakes, or some other product and can make to smear raw butter oil onto to get that into him. Or an egg scrambled with some raw milk cheese on it. Or some Applegate farms Sunday bacon. I try to find a way to also get some coconut oil into him during the day too. He also loves apples sliced really thin with a dip I make by mixing kefir, nut butter and coconut oil. Sadly, he refuses to eat cheese now. I don't know why... he loved it. Now he doesn't, LOL!

I've been having to crush up my son's vitamins and mixing w/ apple sauce. He requested it that way.

He won't eat raw milk cheese - the taste is too strong. My DH hates it too. Oh well - more for me!

What kind of K2 drops do you use? I found K2 + D3 "dots" by Twin Labs. It's MK7 so stays in his system longer. I have to watch to make sure he won't have clotting problems. I upped his C intake, and that should help, I hope.

What's the difference in "restore" and "oravive"... they both have "novamin"

Anyone know?

Does anybody have a step by step aproach to stopping and/or reversing tooth decay. What I need is a do this kind of aproach because I don't have time to read the entire thread and could really use the help.

Thank you.

Check out http://www.curetoothdecay.com/ and the WAPF site for starters for nutritional advice. Consider xylitol products, flouride rinses and/or toothpastes (controversial, some think topical a good idea, some not, check out www.zellies.com for some ideas re topical flouride) and look into Healozone. Good luck!
post #695 of 861
I just responded to the request for a simple routine a few posts ago. Now, I am not a Dr, etc. But I read the WHOLE thread, scoured the WAPF website and continue to scour the internet as a whole for anything that might help. This is what I came up with:

No one can guarantee anything will work for anyone/everyone. But if you want to know what I am trying based on all my reading, its in my blog

CLO for kids

My kids have always taken the Nordic Naturals CLO and they just chew the caps... I looked a the BLue Ice but there only seem to be large caps. Any recommendations for which CLO kids are accepting best? Also, I NEED the caps. I don't care what you mix that stuff in - I am burping fish taste ALL DAY!

Thanks

That's weird - my Nordic (straight up, not in capsules or anything) doesn't have any fish flavor at all. It shouldn't taste like fish. You might've gotten a bad batch or something or it's old. I get the orange flavor, but you can get it unflavored and hide it in something no problem. It just tastes like neutral oil. Carlson brand gave me fish burps.

Kale vs Spinach

I just want to comment on the recurring theme of oxalic acid in greens. From what I understood spinach and some other greens are high in oxalates but Kale is not. I keeep seeing it get a bad rap here. Spinach has an oxalate content of .97 whereas Kale is only .02. That's considerably lower than both garlic and lettuce, for example. Chives, parsley, purslane, rhubarb, lambsquarters are all really high ( over 1%). Anyone know of any other reason why Kale would not be good to eat or why it would not be a good source of vitamins and minerals? Just curious..

Thanks

Nordic

I really think it is a taste sensitivity thing. I have tried the peach and the lemon maybe.... Ugh. It ruined my smoothie IMO! lol. I'd rather swallow caps even though it is cheaper to buy straight oil. I can maybe get my kids to take straight oil though caps are more convenient and novel. Are there any other brands that have the little caps - esp if my 7 year old wants to swallow them?

Learing lots here (second time around). I am doing alot of cutting and pasting so I can sort it all out later. lol

Thanks
JenQ
