Teeth can Heal

What your are about to read are my opinions as a layman, based on my experience, some reading, and a little research. I am exercising my right to free speech in the sharing of ideas. This is not medical advice. I think there are some excellent ideas here, but please, do your own due diligence! I strongly believe that you can heal your teeth yourself, but to do it I think that you will have to be religious about making it happen.

On the other hand, why would we care? Can’t we just go to the dentist? “Aahhhhhhhh!” Oh, sorry. Well besides our visceral hatred and fear of the dentist’s office, we know that dental amalgam is made with mercury. Yep, that’s the stuff that in school (back in the day) we were sternly warned not to play with or roll it around on our palms because it was so-o-o poisonous. Well yes, it is poisonous. And it doesn’t belong in our mouths, either. Read Mercury and Cancer – Research and Dental Amalgams.

So. Let’s see if we can heal our own teeth. Here is a list of the items that are discussed below:

  • Eggshells, organic (blend into shakes, etc.)
  • Diatomaceous Earth (blend into shakes, etc.)
  • MSM (supplement)
  • Tri-sodium Phosphate (swishing)
  • Minerals
  • Fat-Soluble Vitamins (A, D, E, and K) and Turmeric
  • Digestion
  • Water!
  • Comfrey Root (swishing)
  • Kangen Water (for shakes, drinking, spray, and/or swishing)
  • Colloidal Silver (spray, and/or swishing)
  • Cayenne Pepper (swishing, gargling)
  • Essential Oils (cinnamon and birch)
  • Water! (“toothpaste” – I’m not kidding!)
  • Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda (“toothpaste”)
  • Turmeric (“toothpaste” ingredient and whitener)
  • Activated Coconut Charcoal (“toothpaste” ingredient and whitener)
  • Fresh Strawberries (whitener, as needed)
  • Bloodroot, for plaque removal (use periodically – do not swallow!)

The excellent article, How to Heal Cavities Naturally, says that Dr. Weston’s research indicates cavities are caused by mineral deficiency, a deficiency in the fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) or the fats needed to absorb them, and by nutrients not being readily bio-available, and/or failure of your digestive system (Eat Okra! Drink Kangen Water!) to absorb them. Your teeth need fats. Eat fat, have teeth!

And speaking of fats and digestion, I need to mention that your body can’t use fats if it can’t emulsify them. The best way that I know to facilitate this in your body is to drink Kangen water! Sounds weird, right? It’s phenomenal! I don’t want you to take my word for it. Browse the link and watch some of the videos to see what I mean. I suspect you can also support metabolization of fat by consuming lecithin, fermented cod liver oil, fermented fish or fish sauces, and/or whatever food substances support the liver and gall bladder. And be sure you have enough stomach acid.

Before moving on, a few words about water are in order. And don’t worry I’m not forgetting the subject of teeth. Some dentists are using Kangen water in their practice! But its not for your teeth and gums only – water is the freight delivery system for your body, and much more. Your body is 75% water and nothing is happening without it. I know, I know, you’ve heard all about how you have to drink enough water, filter your water, and you may even have heard about the important benefits of drinking alkaline water. It’s all true, so far as it goes. Drinking quality of water is critically important for supporting life. In today’s environment, drinking not just any water, but hydrogen-rich water is critically important. Well Kangen water is alkaline but it goes beyond that. Nothing I’ve seen (except possibly BioWater catalyst) comes close to it. If you do only one thing for your health (and your gums and teeth for that matter), in my opinion drinking Kangen water should be it. So when you see an idea below or some method you can use for your teeth, and it involves water (what doesn’t involve water?), use Kangen water for that (unless distilled is specifically mentioned).

Okay, on to your teeth!

From Natural News:

Regrowing your teeth is simple. You’ll (basically) need two things: comfrey root and organic eggshells. Eggshells are used because they contain 27 minerals and loads of calcium, so they contain the ideal building materials to regrow your teeth. In fact, the composition of eggshells is very similar to the composition of our teeth and bones. Comfrey root is used because it accelerates bone, teeth and tissue growth. In fact, another name for comfrey root is knitbone, primarily because of its ability to knit – or regrow – bone together so quickly.

When you’re regrowing your teeth, aim to eat one organic eggshell each day. Blending your shells into fresh fruit smoothies is a great way to consume them because blending breaks them into tiny particles that are easily consumed. Smoothies with bananas are ideal because the banana will keep the shell particles suspended instead of allowing them to sink to the bottom of your glass. After cracking the egg, just boil your shells in water for five minutes (or soak them in acid water) to kill any pathogens before use.

While you’re re-mineralizing and adding plenty of calcium to your body with eggshells, you’ll also want to use comfrey root on your teeth and gums. Either fresh or dried comfrey root (quality is important with herbs and they should be herbicie/pesticide free) will do the trick, but if it’s dried, boil the root lightly for ten minutes to rehydrate it. Then, blend a square inch of the root with a few tablespoons of water to make a liquid – and swish the liquid in your mouth and between your teeth for about 20 minutes. When you’re finished, just spit it out.

Using comfrey in this manner is best done once a day, and you’ll likely see progress within a few weeks. Many cavities can be completely regrown within a month or two with regular use. The best part is: you can heal your teeth without leaving toxic metals or hormone disruptors in your mouth for the rest of your life.

As a note, comfrey root can be a little hard on your liver so if you have liver problems, you’ll want to avoid using comfrey. After your teeth have regrown, you’ll also want to end the use of comfrey so as not to over do it. [link to www.naturalnews.com]

My comments:

Comfrey is controversial, due to its borderline toxicity. Check that out before you decide to use it, or how you want to use it.

In the video below, Tony Pantalleresco proposes swishing your teeth with a solution of tri-sodium phosphate and baking soda. He has done this, and he says you should begin to see regeneration “within weeks”.

I have also heard of using sunflower or coconut oil to swish between your teeth like described above. This is called “oil pulling” and is said to be very effective. I tried it a little, but it’s too tedious for me (I have periodically swished a tincture of bloodroot, though, for plaque removal. It is described below. Very effective in removing plaque! You don’t want to swallow it, though. Like Comfrey, it is also toxic.)!

If I were to do do oil-pulling daily, though, I would add a few drops of cinnamon oil and birch oil (a little more on them, below). Actually, here is a link to some suggested essential oils to use for that. And I would of definitely add some cayenne tincture. Cayenne is like a supercharger. It makes herbs, minerals, oils, or nutrients more penetrating and effective. A tincture of cayenne made by soaking fresh organic cayenne (or powder or fresh cayenne) in cheap vodka is an excellent and versatile product. After a month or two of soaking, you pour off (or filter) and save the vodka to add to various concoctions. For swishing, just add a little to your oil-pulling oil. You will quickly get used to the heat and can increase the portion of cayenne tincture. You can’t overdo it. Bonus – it is fantastic for the gums! The herbal guru and cayenne fiend, Dr. Schulze, regrew receding gums using it. When you want the best and hottest cayenne, go to Dr. Schulze. He also sells tinctures if you don’t want to make your own.

Speaking of fantastic for the gums you had might as well add some quality turmeric to your cayenne tincture. And rounding out this brew I suggest adding Strong Kangen water to the mix (Strong Kangen water is okay for this application because you spit it out. Kangen water is for drinking, but Strong Kangen water is not). But Kangen water or not, you will be glad you did this. You are just giving our body the tools it needs to heal itself.

Consider using the above swishing mix in a water pick! Yowza!

Healing your teeth is a race between your body’s regenerative powers and the bacteria that lay down plaque on your teeth and then live in it excreting enamel-dissolving acids. One of the main obstacles, if not the main obstacle, to restoring the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth is the presence of bacteria.

So the subject of bacteria in the mouth is important and it brings us to something called Strong Acid Water (it has a pH of 2.5). It is powerful bactericide. I swish it in my mouth and used for pre-brushing my teeth – and especially any problem areas – in order to kill the germs in the mouth. Then I follow it with something alkaline, which could be the cayenne toothpaste described above or baking soda or simply Strong Alkaline water (11.5 pH). the Strong Acid Water and the Strong Alkaline Water are “not for drinking,” so a final swish with neutral or Kangen water (9.5 pH) isn’t a bad idea. Visit the Water! page to learn more about Kangen water, Strong Alkaline water, and Strong Acid water.


You can’t go at this half-assed and expect good results. But the good news is, if you want to take control of your oral hygiene, you can! I myself have had a small cavity disappear that the dentist was going to drill, and I wasn’t trying all that hard. I’ll have to say, though, that I’m pretty healthy generally – due to my escape from the food and pharma industry years ago – and in my opinion it’s your immune system that gets this done. And this was before I discovered Kangen water!

Speaking of the immune system, having a healthy balance of micro-organisms in your gut should be considered part of your dental regime. I’m sorry but I have to stop right here and tell you there is a leading medical doctor using Kangen water for colon therapy and the results are astounding. Check the Doctors on Kangen Water section of my Water page for that. According to Dr. Mercola, eating fermented vegetables (live-culture pickles, sauerkraut, or even live-culture vinegar with the mother I think would do it) is said to reduce plaque by 50%. The fermented veggies leave friendly bacteria in the mouth, which attack and suppress the tooth-degrading bacteria, so making your pickled vegetable the last thing you eat wouldn’t be a bad idea. Live pickles for dessert!

In my opinion combining this benefit with the benefits of cayenne peppers should be very powerful. You can do this by pickling cayenne peppers (put them in live unfiltered vinegar and wait) and eating them regularly. Mercola also says that swishing with coconut oil 30 minutes twice a day (that’s a lot!) reduced plaque by another 30 percent.

Also, if you really need to repair some damage, besides doing the above, take a hard look at feeding your immune system with the glyconutrients recipe as well! This is definitely superfood. I would also use colloidal silver (discussed more below), as I remember reading years ago that silver facilitates rebuilding bone. You can make your own very cheaply using electrolysis (joaqin, below in the comments, says that you should only use distilled water for this!). And you can supercharge your toothpaste by adding Biocidin to it. And also consider probiotic chewable dental mints!

So since tooth-eating bacteria live in plaque, you want a way to remove it. Bloodroot is effective for this, but be advised it has some toxicity so you don’t want to swallow it. Use it periodically, not daily. Get the chopped root, not the powder. This will be stronger and fresher. You make a tincture from it by letting it soak in alcohol. Add some cayenne to it to make it more effective. Do a search for a recipe. Just rinse your mouth with it, swishing it between the teeth and such, for at least a minute. Then gargle with clean water after, and brush. I brush with peroxide and baking soda. So be advised, plaque! Your days are over! (My Mr. Natural self can not recommend Plax! While Plax gets 5 stars on Amazon for removing plaque, it contains sodium lauryl sulfate which is really bad stuff. Some of that and whatever other dangerous chemicals Plax may contain will absorb through your mouth tissues. And of course you will swallow a little.) I wouldn’t use either bloodroot or Plax daily, but periodically for a few days or a week and then give it a rest. You can check your teeth to see if you need to go a round by rinsing the mouth with a few drops of food coloring in 2 oz of water to temporarily stain the plaque on your teeth. Then look in the mirror. Say, “Aarghh!”

None of the above is whitening. I am a coffee drinker and have found the Mentadent tooth whitening system to be effective. They probably all are. But I tried the strawberries, peroxide, and baking soda mentioned below, and it worked! I have also tried rubbing the inside of fresh banana peels on my teeth, and it worked!! Whatever I do for whitening, though, would include turmeric but for other reasons which I will get to after the testimonial below.

1.) Use chicken eggshells (organic). grind them up in a herbal/spice potter, drink with water, or blend them with bananas as a smoothie. drink once a day. (As an alternative and probable upgrade – this is my idea from reading Dr. West’s outstanding Health Alert newsletter: a person could take two products by Standard Process, called Calcifood Powder, and Biost.)

2.) Find or buy (good quality) wild comfrey. Clean and mash the fresh root and chew for 20 minutes a day (watch your favorite tv show/read a book/surf the net/exercise while doing so) and spit out, rinse (or brush) with hydrogen peroxide/baking soda mix (not necessary but it helps and cleans teeth. I brush with these and get very little plaque build-up, but it doesn’t whiten. To whiten, mix mashed up fresh strawberry with baking soda. Put the paste on your teeth and leave it on for two minutes! I have tried just brushing my front teeth with fresh strawberry after brushing with peroxide and baking soda and I was surprised how it whitened my teeth!)

3.) Do 1.) and 2.) for several weeks/a couple of months. Your cavities will fill in, cusps will rebuild, cracked teeth will heal and rotted teeth will; while not be top tier, will fill in and heal.

So says somebody. I forgot who!

Avoid sugar and alcohol during this time period. Your teeth will thank you very much.” (Oh, is that all? No sugar, meaning also breads and pastries? But for the stalwart and/or those in serious need, check out the SC Diet and Saturated Fats and Body Ecology and the Weston Price Foundation. Weston Price is particularly valuable on healing your teeth. But again, if you are in serious need, please you will make it a lot easier on yourself if you try the Kangen water. I know I’m getting tiresome, but you will be glad you did.

Here is a video showing how to whiten your teeth using baking soda and lemon. However when I tried this, I wasn’t overly impressed. It worked some, but as I remember it strawberries worked much better:

Okay, now there is another whitening method using turmeric. Having experimented with this, my results are positive! It does whiten, but more importantly it is excellent for the health of your teeth and gums. It actually made me want to brush not only my teeth, but my gums. So I did. I have never had anything make me want to brush my gums before!

  1. Turmeric is fat-soluble, so adding something like coconut oil to make a paste should help it work. The coconut oil by forming the powder into a paste definitely helps prevent staining counter tops and sinks! More importantly, coconut oil is antibacterial. Check out Coconut Oil Now Called “Miracle” Dental Bacteria KillerCoconut Charcoal turns out to be an effective tooth-whitener and is good for the teeth and gums. It also has other uses. I plan to add it to my toothpaste.
  2. Turmeric stains! Watch your counters, the sink, and your skin and beard that you don’t stain them. I just run a little hot water while I brush and rinse off any spills fairly immediately.
  3. Black pepper helps turmeric absorb. I don’t know what that would be like in a toothpaste. Fresh ground or some tincture from fresh ground, would be the way to go, though, if you use it.
  4. Baking Soda is not only great in a toothpaste but is powerfully good for your body in many ways, especially when used with magnesium, according to Dr. Mark Sircus. That is another topic, but a person could add some calcium/magnesium powder to their toothpaste.

And speaking of adding, my actual preferred toothpaste would probably be a paste made with baking soda, calcium/magnesium, turmeric, strawberry, and coconut charcoal in a coconut oil base; squirting a little food-grade peroxide diluted to the standard solution using fresh Strong Kangen water into my mouth before starting. When I added coconut oil and turmeric to my baking soda toothpaste, this was the first and only “toothpaste” I’ve ever used that actually made me want to brush my gums as well as my teeth. Gently massaging your gums has to be a great way to stimulate the blood flow into your teeth to feed them and carry off wastes. For more ideas, visit 5 Toothpaste Recipes.

Speaking of blood flow is finally my segway into suggesting cayenne pepper for  the health of your teeth, gums, mouth, sinuses, and throat (besides consuming it for the health of the rest of your body). Cayenne is a superfood. Among other things it will stimulate and equalize bloodflow and quicken the blood to carry off toxins. This has obvious application to healing your teeth. Also, Cayenne is an imperative if you are struggling with gum disease. If you add to this some fresh Kangen water, which is known to promote the free flow hemoglobin (this should be in one of the demos, I think), you should be doing some powerful good.

If I were trying to heal cavities or something,  in addition brushing as described above, I would drink 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of cayenne powder in a little water and swishing my mouth with it twice a day, and I would swish and gargle with colloidal silver, and carry a sprayer of colloidal silver with me during the day, spraying and/or swishing my mouth with it regularly. How could I afford colliodal silver? Buy or put together a kit and make it. You just set up some water (Joaquin, in the comments below, says to make this with distilled water only and no salt) and put a couple of silver wires in it. Then you plug a converter into the wall socket and connect it’s output wires to the two silver wires (don’t let them touch each other) for (hm. I don’t know exactly how long without salt). The DC output from the converter carries silver ions into the water as it passes electric current between the two silver wires. The kit has alligator clips to attach the silver probes (wires) that submerge in the water. In the kit everything is supplied, with instructions, and it’s really simple to do. Colloidal silver is one of the 7 health wonders of  the world in my opinion. Don’t believe the scare stories about it.

You can also supplement with a few products that greatly enhance the body’s ability to rebuild bone and joints (think osteoporosis here, too): Calcifood Powder, Calcium Lactate Powder, and Biost, all by Standard Process; and Blue Ice fermented Cod liver oil. You can get these from Health Alert (I highly recommend the newsletter as well!). Also take food grade diatomaceous earth which is both really cheap and really valuable.

And new technologies are coming along to allow you to grow your own replacement teeth and a toothpaste that fills cavities.

If you have gum infections, you can apply oil of Oregano to your gums with great effect, says Dr. Russ Newman! … and bonus really, really, awful taste, too, says I! So go ahead and add cayenne pepper to it.

The practice of Minimalist Dentistry confirms a lot of the above.

Oh, yes! I must mention the power of garlic! I had a tooth abscess  a few years ago while I was traveling and it got very bad. Finally once I got home the pain was all over from my shoulder up to the top of my head and I became afraid of it so I went to the dentist thinking that, as had been done years ago when I was in college, he would drill a hole in the tooth to relieve the pressure and the pain would be instantly gone. No-o-o. they can’t do that anymore. He confirmed I had an abscess and sent me to the pharmacy with a penicillin prescription, and told me that after the infection subsided I should have a root canal bad idea). Well my wife had just shown me a convincing documentary on the use of garlic for tooth pain and so I didn’t fill the prescription and went home to use  the Russian Penicillin (garlic) instead.

I put a thin sliver of raw garlic in my mouth between the cheek and the gum and kept it there. I extracted garlic juice, diluted it and put drops in my ear. I ate some garlic. I was also using cayenne pepper already and whatever natural immune-boosting products I was using in those days. This was about noon.

By supper time I was getting better fast and knew that I would sleep that night for the first time in several days. I kept up the regime for several days until the tooth was completely healed. I reeked of garlic and the slices of raw garlic burned the inside of my cheek a little bit, but it was worth it!

Then I made my only mistake. A week or so later I went and had the root canal done (Caveat: I don’t mean to say that I should have done nothing. Something had to be done – either extraction or healing to the point that the tooth never flared up again). The root canal has been ok, but can act up from time to time. But root canals are said to be a really bad idea as it turns out. Bacteria live in a root canal tooth like in a crack house as a sort of chronic condition since the tooth is dead and the body can’t get in to clean things up. These bacteria morph into crack addict types and become a threat to your general health. You can read about it here. It’s pretty scary. Things like cancer and heart attack are mentioned. Anyway, that’s another story and my point right now is to testify to what can be done with, say, garlic, cayenne pepper, and colloidal silver to stop tooth pain at its source when it occurs by bringing about actual healing of the cause.

For healing the abscess, if I had had known what I know now I would have added cinnamon and birch oils to my cure. Check out this testimony:

My married son had an abscessed tooth, and the dentist said he would have to have a root canal done. Knowing how bad root canals are, he called me to see what I’d suggest him to do, and I suggested that he apply Plague Defense on the gum next to the tooth and diluted on the jaw. He put some drops on a cotton ball and packed it next to the tooth. The infection cleared up but then erupted again, and this cycle happened at least three times. Each time he’d start the protocol again. I read about your Enhance Tooth Suds, and why the Birch was added, so I suggested that he use the Plague Defense and then apply Birch to help drive it in. This worked! The infection was resolved and his tooth is fine. (Hopewell Essential Oils)

    I have a filling in my cavity. Is it possible to get it removed and use comfrey and such to restore my teeth? Thanks for the info!

  2. icliks says:

    From the posts above, I would say yes, but I haven’t tried it. I would only try this if I were willing to eat no sugar, or sugar-related foods (including none of the artificial sweeteners except stevia), I personally would eat no carbohydrate foods and my shakes would be “green smoothies” using no fruits. I would use a waterpic to keep the tooth clean. I would also consume generous amounts of silver water (you can buy or make a unit that produces this). I would also practice the technique called “oil pulling.” I would not try any of this if I were eating the typical American diet, involving white flour, white sugar, white (bleached) table salt, texturizers, colorizers, and flavorizers, using ingredients from “factory farms” etc. This diet is unhealthy and leaves your body deprived of the resources it needs to regenerate. It’s important to me, for example, that the eggshells be organic, as they will be nutrient rich and will be free of the (poisonous) pesticides, herbicides, and antibiotics in “factory-farm” eggs.

    Lastly, I am not giving you medical advice. I am sharing what I would do. Good luck in your decision!

  3. Kyle says:

    Thanks for the info! I’ll try it for a few months and get back to you.

    Take care!

    • icliks says:

      You may have a hard time finding a dentist that will drill out a filling and leave it unfilled… If it’s loose you might pull it out by chewing some gum or something.

      I was thinking that if you do find a dentist to drill it out, plus any existing decay, you could go in once a month a few times for checkups to ensure that decay isn’t coming back. If it’s not, the tooth is probably healing.

      Keep us posted!

    • Anonymous says:

      Does it work? How long it took to regrow your tooth?

      • icliks says:

        I am convinced that teeth can regenerate under the right circumstances, and the things in this page are said to work. But there is no way I can say what will happen in your case.

  4. Ben says:

    I bought a bag of comfrey root cut and shifted. How would i use this for my teeth?. I assume its dried so do i just make a tea then rinse with it?

    • icliks says:

      Well, I discover that according to my blog (probably in the page above), you chew the comfrey for something like 20 minutes.

    • sharon settles says:

      boil the comfrey root for about 10 minutes, cool, strain and swish the tea in mouth and pull it through your teeth and then spit it out. it will have the toxins in it from your teeth and gums.

  5. John says:

    anyone got an idea if swishing pulverized eggshell together with your saliva in your mouth could be helpful, too. And would the color of the shell make any difference to the material delivered to the teeth?

    • icliks says:

      You could run the eggshell with a little water in a blender or something to make a smoothie texture that you could pull through your teeth.

  6. Alanna Yard says:

    I am interested in your information,. I have fillings, so I was wondering if I removed my fillings would this help or would removing my fillings ruin my teeth?

  7. Alanna Yard says:

    I am also wondering if I decide to keep my fillings in will all of this help?

    • icliks says:

      I suppose you mean remove them and not refill them? I have not removed any of my fillings, and probably would not. I don’t think you could get a dentist to do that anyway. If you are having issues with mercury, then you can find a dentist (a few know about this and do it) who will remove your old fillings in a special manner so as to not poison you with the loose mercury and mercury vapors during the removal and who will then fill your cavities with a different material.

      And yes if you keep your fillings in the practices on this page will definitely help. And if you have tooth pains, they can help. I am adding my testimony about healing a tooth abscess to the page, so check it out. It’s there now.

      But if I were to experiment with, say, a small cavity – either removing the filling from it or leaving it unfilled – I would be very aggressive about using the tooth healing nutrients and practices on this page. I would also use the other health promoting ideas in this blog, like what you find here and the other pages under the Eat Fat – Be Thin! menu item on the blog. And in particular I would pay attention to my immune system by getting the eight sugars andotherthings, including live fermented foods containing good bacteria, which kill off bad bacteria.

  8. da1616y says:

    Thank you for responding, I am also wondering if I keep my fillings in would my teeth regrow from the cavities?

    • icliks says:

      Teeth do regenerate, and I firmly believe that given the right conditions they can regrow from cavities. As I understand it, that’s what minimalist dentistry is all about. I suppose it depends on the balance between how many and how large the cavities are vs. how vigorous your body’s regenerative properties are. But the human body is astounding in its rejuvinative abilities. I have read of people sent home to die of cancer that with a few fairly simple changes (simple but not necessarily easy) to their lifestyles became cancer free. Likewise heart problems. Basically you can name the disease and the story is the same.

  9. da1616y says:

    A few last questions, how do I know that they are regrowing, and when they have regrown would I still need my fillings? I am diabetic, and sometimes need to take sugary liquids, will that have a negative affect on trying to regrow my teeth?

    • icliks says:

      Between regrowing teeth without a dentist vs. managing diabetes, the diabetes is the more serious problem. If this is type 2 diabetes you can stop it. I have been planning to blog about this and will try to get to it this week. Meanwhile, getting off wheat is an important first step. If you resolve the diabetes issue you will have gone a long way towards healing your teeth. Without resolving the diabetes, I don’t know how much you can do for your teeth. So, since teeth seem to be high on your list right now, I would not wait to do the things that help them. But since diabetes is the labeled condition showing that your body is out of balance, and may stand in the way of healing your teeth, I would also go about conquering the diabetes. If it is type 2, you definitely can! Be patient with me and I will try to blog about this sooner rather than later. Meanwhile, check the link on wheat!

  10. da1616y says:

    Also, thank you for answering my questions the best that you could.

  11. da1616y says:

    would type 1 also affect my teeth growing?

    • icliks says:

      da1616y, I finished writing an article about diabetes. I don’t know much about type 1 diabetes, but I would say that principles and suggestions in my article would apply to the conditions described. One thing for sure, you want to be adding as little insulin to your bloodstream as possible. Besides causing the effects described in my article it causes other problems as well. I don’t mean you should stop using insulin if you are, but that by making some lifestyle changes you can change your metabolism so that you need less.

      As for teeth, I don’t think I mentioned that if you have a filling that fell out, especially a large filling, there is often a layer that was put under it by the dentist that did not fall out. I have my doubts that the tooth will grow around and fill over that. Even if there is no sub-layer remaining it would take a long time for a tooth to fill in, as in years, if it is going to. To me it is all about getting your body’s regenerative powers to outpace the bad bacteria that will naturally attack the tooth.

    i started urine therapy about one month ago. i drink it in the morning, sometimes throughout the day, rinse my mouth with the first urine of the day for about 7 minutes, as well as applying it to my face, neck, hands and any injuries i may have at the time. urine rubbed on a VERY swollen foot injury took the swelling down about 50% more than dmso did. i also use it as eye drops. my skin is silky and my teeth have never felt cleaner. surprisingly, it is slowly but surely curing my chronic bad breath. i am happy to recommend checking it out and giving it a try. if i can do it, anyone can.

      Thanks for posting! I heard years ago that urine from a male is steril, but from a female it is not. Do you have any comments about that?

  13. arcadia11 says:

    hey icliks –
    you’re welcome.

    they are both sterile – especially the first one in the morning (midstream) – but both genders are supposed to clean the area before collecting the urine so it remains sterile. obviously this would be more significant for women than for men.

    it’s good stuff!

    cheers ~

    Show me any research that proves that you can regenerate holes in your teeth! This is all such crap I can’t even believe people just read one post on the internet and believe it wholeheartedly (laughing so hard I’m about to pee my pants). The fact that you think you healed an abscess with garlic is hysterical. What actually happened is the bacteria got into the pulp of your tooth where the nerve and blood supply is and eventually killed the tooth (hence why it doesn’t hurt anymore). Your tooth didn’t magically heal itself. People read some research articles before you just believe the latest fad on how to magically regenerate teeth.

    • arcadia11 says:

      hi RG.
      lol. no, the tooth did not magically heal itself. these are not miracles. rather, it was given what it needed to accomplish that. i deal with abscesses myself, too. the very few times that i ended up with a slight infection afterward i dealt with that as well, with natural substances. never a problem.

      as for tooth regeneration – i am fortunate to have seen it with my own eyes. i rescued a little dog a few years ago who very obviously had severe dental problems. when i left her at the vet’s for dental work they pulled out every one of her teeth, without my permission!, except for one molar which they said was left in for bone support. she also had advanced cancer and was given a six-week prognosis. she not only lived for two more years, she re-grew five perfect little teeth right in the front on her lower jaw. five. the vet simply could not wrap his head around that.

      she was fed an excellent diet, raw organic meat and veggies, pure water, and was given a number of supplements for the cancer. i am guessing it was all of those things together that supplied the needed nutrients for the regeneration. which was totally unexpected. you can probably guess how delighted i was.

      good health & happiness to you, rg. perhaps you’ll have some ‘miracles’ in your own life.

      kindest regards,

    • icliks says:

      RG, if you’re talking about my testimony above about healing an abscess with garlic, this was not a hole in my tooth. It was an abscess inside my tooth. The garlic (and cayenne) and whatever else I used killed the bacteria in the tooth abscess and the abscess subsided. It was pretty obvious that it worked since the abscess had been attempting to blow my head off and the pain disappeared. If I had followed the dentist’s advice and bought the penicillin and my tooth had stopped hurting, which is what the dentist intended, would you say that it had not worked and the tooth had merely died?

      As for “any research” that cavities can be healed please take note of several links in my page above. You can google “minimalist dentistry” or use your imagination. Imagine you actually want to find some research on this. … You will if you want to.

    Can I swish with comfrey root extract to help regrow my teeth? If so, how much should I use?

    • icliks says:

      Yes you can! But I don’t know how much to use. I can say, don’t swallow it. Comfrey itself has a little toxicity, but swishing with it will pull poisons from your mouth that you will want to spit out and not swallow.

      • altamisal says:

        I’m swishing with comfrey root/leaf extract myself lately. I got it from an herbalist who recommended to swallow it as well. I would assume she knows what she’s talking about.
        Anyway, haven’t experienced any untoward effects!

  16. Teresa says:

    Is it possible to regenerate a tooth with a root canal ? Abscess on teeth can be healed by laser treatment instead of root canal – japanese dentists perform laser successfully on diseased roots. Why are intestinal bacteria important for good dental health?

    • icliks says:

      I don’t think a tooth with a root canal can regenerate (outside of a miracle). In the root canal procedure the tooth is killed. The soft innards are drilled out and filled with some kind of cement. As for your second question, good bacteria basically do three things. They pre-digest your food. They produce by-products that are useful to the body. They kill and replace bad bacteria. Bad bacteria are bad because the by-products they produce are toxic to the body.

      • altamisal says:

        Oil pulling can help detox the inflammation from root canals, also high dose vitamin C combined with MSM.

    • Bertrolli says:

      Maybe the book “Cure tooth decay” from Ramiel Nagel can help you?

  17. Mariana says:

    My daughter is 11. She is typical…have to strong arm her to brush her teeth. As a result, her teeth appear yellow – until I lord over her bathroom habits for a while and they definitely get better with more brushing. However, we have wild strawberries growing in our yard. They are around for a couple months in the spring-summer. I read that they have tooth whitening properties and told her about it. She picks them now, mashes a bunch of them and smears them over her teeth. Guess what? It works AMAZING! We haven’t tried this with regular strawberries from the store but I would imagine that would work, too! Her teeth are brilliantly white – at least in late spring! lol

    • icliks says:

      I am very glad to know this. Thank you for posting!

      • Bertrolli says:

        Brushing your teeth with a miswak stick will also works against yellow teeth.

      • icliks says:

        Thanks for the comment Bertrolli! I would like to try this, but like all herbs, quality is a key so I was looking at some reviews on Amazon. One person said, “Cut the bark off like the directions said and started chewing. Then a super bitter, chemical-y juice oozed out and assaulted my taste buds. I’ve consumed a lot of questionable things in my days but this just felt dangerous.” Is it supposed to taste like this or was he running up on a serious quality issue? What has been your experience?

    • arcadia11 says:

      a good success story, mariana. i am happy for you and your daughter and i am happy that you are sharing it. who wouldn’t want to brush their teeth with juicy strawberries?!

      thank you –

    I’ve been using colloidal silver for more than one year. Before it, I investigate loads of webpages, I bought books and readed also alternative medical magazines. One of the facts that I learned is that you must NEVER use anything but distilled water to make your own colloidal silver. Using salty water makes the process quicker, but you’ll get siver salts, which the body can not easily dispose, and finally are stored in the skin, frequently causing argyria. That will not happen if you use distilled water (pure), as the microscopic silver ions and silver particles can go trough the living tissues, and will finally be gone with the urine.
    Please, let me insist: do not add, never, salt or any other material to the water. And make sure that you are using pure silver electrodes (at least, 99,99% -or 0,9999- is the same).

  21. Janet says:

    Will eggshells and comfrey root repair a loose tooth?

    • icliks says:

      I don’t know. They certainly won’t hurt. But ask yourself these questions: How is your overall health? Normal weight? Good stamina? Sleep well? Not catching every germ that comes around?

      It is your good health and a strong immune system that will tighten up that tooth. Getting the full-spectrum minerals and all the other major food factors while avoiding poisons … that’s a good place to start. Check out this blog’s Eat Fat be Thin menu for more on this.

  22. Sandy Zalagens says:

    where do you buy comfrey root?

    • icliks says:

      I haven’t bought comfrey root in a long time, but if I did I would try Nature’s Sunshine because herb quality varies greatly and I know their commitment to quality. Beyond that you could check the reviews on various herbs at Amazon until you find a company that gets good reviews and also sells comfrey.

  23. Veronica says:

    Hey ! I recently went to the dentist to have a few fillings and also fix my one tooth sensitivity problem. Instead the dentist drilled 3 teeth inward at the root practically to the pulp and I have severe sensitivity and also my filling came out on my other tooth and I have problems eating now. I lost my confidence. My smile was my best feature 😦 Does comfrey root repair lost dentin in teeth and possible repair cracks in teeth ? Please please help !!!

    Hi, lovely post / sharing…do you have any experience with Coral Calcium or any thoughts on it possibly?? ThankYou

    • icliks says:

      I don’t know what coral calcium will do for teeth, specifically, but it can’t hurt. You could try colloidal calcium in a spray bottle, maybe with some colloidal silver, too, and spray your mouth throughout the day. Look over this Teeth can Heal page for other ideas for what you might make a tea or tincture from to use as your water base for this spray.

      I think highly of the usefulness of colloidal (ionic) calcium generally and have taken coral calcium in the past as a way to get it. The body uses ionic calcium to maintain an electrical potential between the interior of its cells and their extra-cellular environment. Calcium ions have a – charge if I remember right, and these need to be present around the outside of cells so that as the cells become acidic the calcium ions can carry supplies into them to replenish them. I believe that this is the primary function of calcium in the body and that osteoporosis is caused, when calcium is deficient, by the body robbing the bones to get calcium for this purpose. Calcium is known for being difficult to assimilate and coral calcium when taken as a colloid is supposed to be an effective way to get it, but there are other products out there, too.

      So the body needs to have an ample supply of calcium before the teeth are going to get any, because it will be distributed to all the soft-tissue cells first. But calcium alone will not be effective. All the factors that the body needs to build teeth will have to be present. I don’t know exactly what those factors are, but the items listed on this page are probably a good place to start.

  25. makaela says:

    Hi, Thanks for reply…At this point my health is good…& vital..& my teeth are fine too…I just loved your info…And I see you use the Egg Shells for added minerals…inc. calcium…And as there appear to be conflictive opinions out there on Coral Calcium as a product …I thought I’d ask..As it too has extra minerals in…But shall check out the above..Apologies, my reference to Coral Calcium was as a product..in general..I make my own toothpowder…has a mix of allsorts in depending what I have in…Clay, coral calcium, turmeric, celtic salt, bicarb..Xylitol,cinnmamon herb etc..It really does depend what its the cupboard..But I definitely do well…on extra Calcium…Its more for the building of the Nervous system..It appears to be way in Traditional Chinese medicine..that Oyster shell..& Peral powder in Ayurveda etc..are given to feed the nerves..My brain feels much btter for it…And yet still everywhere people dish it..or that’s what I am reading into it…& stress the greater importance on Magnesium..We are so individual with our responses & needs to things it appears…& sometimes we need to follow our instincts..I love the tissue salts…& the recent reading of The Zodiac & the Salts of Salvation…George Carey…Beautiful Insights..Better to take natural products always than isolated tube enhanced made minerals…so the symphony is there also..Hence why pearl powder & the above Coral Calcium for me resonates…But assimilation is key…& not having any excess build up etc…And this is sometimes where I give in to others feer mongering…Watching my chickens…etc…it is clear where there injestion of calcium goes…& any lack in that..( oyster shells..) & they become ill….Many in the high Raw food movement..appear to reject calcium..?? And yet…The wonderful Dr Vogel…( The Nature Doctor..) saw how important it was…for health…in its natural full spectrum form..As is Vit C….in its natural ‘ full spectrum ‘ form…& not as isolated synthetic Vitamin C..It get a minefield out there with ideas…& money campaigns etc…behind all these products..that can hopefully so often be sourced naturally…Such as horsetail…oatstraw…nettles..etc for great calcium…Oh La La…Many Thanks x

  26. Excellent post, you have pointed out some great details , I too conceive this s a very wonderful web site.

  30. Lavern says:

    Dear Sir
    Is it ok to use Comfrey leaf herb the same way as you would the root by boiling it and then
    swilling out your mouth,or has it got to be the root only?

    • icliks says:

      Not knowing the answer, I searched the web on “comfrey root vs comfrey leaves”. The first entry in the list prefers … the leaves! Here is the link.

      Sharon Settles commented on this page (which I think you already know, but for others maybe I add): “Boil the comfrey root for about 10 minutes, cool, strain and swish the tea in mouth and pull it through your teeth and then spit it out. it will have the toxins in it from your teeth and gums.” So I suppose you could do that with the leaves, too.

  31. Hey very nice blog!|

    • icliks says:

      Thanks! I see you are into Russian Pencillin (aka garlic). Did you notice on my page how I cured my abscess?

  32. Victoria says:

    Can you regrow teeth if all of them have already been pulled?

  33. Padma says:

    Hi, Can the comfrey root treatment be done for a child’s cavities who has just turned 6 years old? He has several and some of them, are deep. Would like to know if it has side effects . Is there anything i need to watch out for?

    • icliks says:

      Judging by the few websites I just visited to check on this, I would not use it on a young child. More research maybe could change one’s mind, so I suggest you do some online research. Consider some of the other ideas on the above page. Personally, I think very highly of making a toothpaste out of turmeric, baking soda, eggshell, and coconut oil, and using some peroxide along with it when brushing (twice a day). Again, that is described above.

      And don’t forget diet! No sweets, and get away from wheat products. Diet is critical and in many more ways than just that. Check out my Eat Fat, be Thin! page. It’s not just about eating fat.

      I hope it goes well for you and your child.

  34. nikki says:

    Hi! I had a few questions about comfrey root for teeth. I have good teeth, I think I may have 1 small cavity though. Does comfrey really actually heal and regrow the tooth? Also I have a tiny chip, could that also fill in? How does the comfrey root work for teeth?
    Also anyone that has used comfrey root for teeth with results please let me know!

  35. nikki says:

    • icliks says:

      Personally, I think you can heal your cavity and possibly the chip as well. I don’t know that comfrey is necessary but you can read what I know about it on this page and follow whatever links you find. I healed a cavity brushing with peroxide and baking soda, but to that I suggest adding a little cayenne (more as you get used to it), turmeric, and coconut oil. Thanks for the comment!

  36. Sunshinefriend says:

    I used this protocol faithfully every day for months and I did not notice any improvement whatsoever….. no repair or regrow the of any kind.

  37. John Lauren says:

    Soaking my teeth for hours each day in Dr. John Raymond Christopher Gum Powder has helped tighten my gums combined with a vegetable and fruit diet. My plans are to try Dr. Arenander’s BrainGain Tooth Formula and utilize cod liver oil.

    • icliks says:

      Interesting. What’s in the gum powder? I know Dr. Schulz (sp?) healed his gums with cayenne. The theory is that it works by increasing blood flow, and that it raises the efficiency of all therapies. Dr. West says that the only fish liver oil that is any good (due to freshness issues) is Blue Ice fermented cod liver oil. It is really good, but it’s mighty expensive. Consider, too, what the Kangen water can do for you. You can visit my Water! page (under the Eat Fat be Thin / Superfoods menu) and scroll down to a video in the Kangen Water and Dentists section. Thanks for the comment!

  38. Zamir says:

    Hi there,

    I would like to have a chat with you personally regarding on this tooth regeneration. I am currently following the weston price protocol. If you are free to talk, please email me at zamir.akil@gmail.com

    • icliks says:

      You could try me during the afternoon on 9/6, 9/8, or 9/9. I don’t know how much help I can be, but I’ll be glad to talk.

    Do you think that there is remedy to reverse possible tooth nerve death? My daughter’s adult molar doesn’t react to cold anymore. She has deep decay and was in terrible pain fro about a week including mild temperature. Considering all these symptoms we were told that tooth has dies and will need either root canal or preferably extraction. I would prefer to avoid either if there is only small chance of saving her tooth. We tried colloidal silver. MMS, oregano oil, belladonna, hepar sulphur, tissue salts. This help to relieve the pain but if she has dead tooth in her mouth I’m not sure that I won’t create more harm shortly… Please advice. Thank you!
