Curious as to what everyone thinks...
firefaery, Rami has posted on MDC before -- have you read this thread?

Nope, but thanks for the heads up. Off to read!

I've watched Rami's videos on Utube and it's pretty much just WAP nutrient dense eating along with CLO/HVBO 3x per day. I believe he also got into eliminating toxins or at least eliminating them from your living environment a bit, but you're already doing that. It's good that his material is available for everyone out there.

I think it is helpful to people (dh) who won't read, but is perfectly content to watch a summation for 20 minutes or so! It is nice to have it come from somewhere other than me...

Is anyone here familiar with the booklet on the Perfect Prescription Tooth Soap website? It seems like it might be similar to what Rami's saying. I'm interested but all this information costs money, and it's not like my library would carry it.

Hi, I am an advocate of Xylitol, by example. The following are some excellent informative sites that got my mom started and have led to the 'healing' of my 2 yr olds teeth.

www.zellies.com [written by a pediatric dentist]; www.epicdental.com [they offer a guarantee on their xylitol products]; and www.xlear.com [Spry products].

My son had - notice the word 'HAD' x-number of cavities and rot in his front teeth to the tune of $2400. Then when he fell and broke 2 of his front teeth the price went up to $3400. But my mom started researching everything she could find about Xylitol. And she came across the sites above and contacted the folks at those sites about what to do for Trenton's teeth. The advice was start him on Xylitol, fortunately he can safely chew gum so we give him the gum [he loves cinnamon - calls it his 'hot' gum], candies [the zellies fruit are his 'vite' candies], brush his teeth with Spry Xylitol gel [wipe ACTS Bubblegum fluoride rinse on only when he takes a nap or at night before bedtime - see zellies.com for reason]; and use the Xlear "RAIN" Xylitol mouth spray when we're out shopping or in church.

Last month we took him to a new pediatric dentist and his response was, all the little cavities had disappeared (?) evidently remineralized; his front teeth where the break happened has sealed over; he has had no pain and no abscesses. He is talking up a storm, not just single words but strings 3 and 4 together to make sentences.

My mom has also used the homeopathic Hypericum perf 30X on Trenton, especially after he fell and broke his teeth - she gave the little pills to me when I had sciatica in my right leg. Pain radiated down my leg, and it felt like it was on fire. One day, four pills four times that day and all symptoms disappeared and I haven't had it since.

But I would urge you to check out the websites, they have lots of info on each of them; and contact them. Dr. Ellie [of zellies.com] actually called me up one day to encourage me to stick with the program my mom started with Trenton.

Oh, one other thing, it takes about 5 weeks for you to begin to see a difference; and 6 months to 1 year before you can classify your mouth in really awesome shape. You said you have 1 big cavity - Trenton does too. That one has not remineralized enough to close it, but his dentist told me just to keep an eye on it. If at any time it looks like Trenton's in pain, or we find a bump on his gum, I'm to bring him in and they will do something but for right now he [the dentist] said it looks as if it has stopped growing.

Anyway, there you have it. Hope this helps.

I haven't checked out the links on xylitol yet -- thanks for posting them! -- but I have to admit that while I'm intrigued, I'm a little bit wary. I'm just worried that I'll start using it or have DS start using it, and then X number of years from now it will be discovered that xylitol is a cancer-causing agent, or something.

Hormones may appear on this board and for that I apologize. I happened on the dental board and looked at some of the questions and thought I could help someone. I still feel I can. I will probably stay away from the controversial topics or at least offer my opinion as just that, my opinion. Peace to you.
Then I would further urge you to get a copy of Weston Price's "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration". He also connects the massive amounts of nutrients in traditional diets, containing 4x the minerals/water soluble vits and 10x the fat soluble vitamins with fertility. This dentist was the head of research for the ADA of his day, well versed in the scientific method. He travelled around the world studying 40 different native populations (and their modern counterparts) for a decade. It's impossible to dismiss this amount of evidence. Wonderful life changing read.

Isn't there a "good" xylitol and a "bad" one? am I remembering this correctly? I know some is from corn and some from birch trees?

Firefaery,
There is a Vitamin K Yahoo group that is chiefly using Thorne's K2 supplement ... it's showing much better/faster enamel thickness than butter oil. I'm still suspect as it's synthetic MK-4 but you might want to take a look. Maybe it's b/c it is so concentrated. And we really dont' know how much K2 is in butter oil.

Sigh. I will check it out. I acquired raw pasture butter and tried to give it to Emrys. It was a serious no-go. I welcome any new info. Thanks.

JaneS, I've only been skimming the daily digests from the vitamin k yahoo group--do some of them discuss tooth enamel? Could you elaborate on this?

Unfortunately this is second hand (but reliable) ... perhaps do a search?

Very interesting stuff! I absolutely hate going to the dentist. The last time I went (in Sept) to get my teeth cleaned I was told I have a big cavity that needed to be filled right away. Well because we don't currently have dental insurance I wasn't able to fill it and lately that tooth has been hurting quite a bit off and on. I am soo scared about having to have a root canal or something like that. Once a cavity gets to this point where it is big is there anything you can do to heal it or is the only option getting the cavity filled?
