Anyway I was wondering when can you tell if its working I'm also trying to figure out why it seems some people are so successful with the diet and others the decay just keeps progressing.
It is simple, usually tooth decay starts from a deficiency during pregnancy, or even prior to birth. All of a sudden, making changes when your child is 1-2 years old, after all that time on a deficient diet will not be overnight magic.
One problem that is likely, is that many children with decayed teeth, in addition to being born with nutrient deficiencies, is that they may have minor and not noticeably visible birth defects such as their ability to assimilate nutrients is diminished. Energy healing, homeopathy and herbal medicine, bone broths, and fermented foods are possibilities to look into at enhancing your child's digestion.
You know it is working if your child is happy, if their teeth feel hard and do not chip and if they do not have an assesses or infections. My daughter, now almost 3 years and 3 months old has had two small abscesses with know other noticeable infection, and both times she was a bit sick and both times they could be traced to even one faulty meal. Two of her teeth a little nubs and dark colored, however they pose no health risk at all. Her teeth still decay slightly, but are also very hard.
The tooth decay may not stop for a long time because your working against months or years of dietary errors. And usually, parents are not fully aligned with the health building protocol.
