How to get rid of cavities naturally, for FREE

How to get rid of cavities naturally, for FREE

I believe in empowering you to be your own teeth healer, no matter how much cash you’ve got left after visiting the dentist.

I’m not holding back some powerful secret behind the paywall of my coaching services.

It is completely feasible that you can learn how to heal your own teeth and gums from the information I share freely on this website.  Look around, especially under the resources tab at the top of the page. Take your time, I’ll wait.

Truthfully, I am thrilled whenever anyone tells me about their good results from following the advice I share freely online.

What I don’t do is give free advice privately when people email or message me with specific questions. I’d rather answer that question in a blog or on social media to help as many people as possible.

So what do you get from paying me, when I share so much information for free?

As well as saving time, giving you more confidence, accessing the cutting edge developments in the field; paid coaching offers…

1. A personalised plan curating the particular strategies that are appropriate for your unique needs, lifestyle, budget and preferences. For example are you a:

  • Rural vegan with impacted wisdom teeth? Lets get unique.
  • Living with chronic illness and medication turning teeth to chalk? Lets get bespoke.
  • Ex-bulimic with bleeding gums and an hyper-sensitive gag reflex? Lets get tailormade.
  • Busy mother with one child out of four whose teeth are decaying?  Lets get specific.

2. Ongoing support to implement and integrate your unique plan into your daily life, when daily life includes exotic holidays, bouts of flu or crazy work deadlines.  It’s all very well to have a plan but if you don’t follow it, nothing’s gonna change! So you get:

  • Accountabilty
  • Encouragement
  • Problem-solving
  • Your specific questions answered in detail

3. Intuitive healing that makes the difference when you’ve tried all the tips on the blog for weeks and your teeth are still giving you grief. The role of emotions, thoughts, epigenetics and so on is often the missing puzzle piece of your healing. Working with me allows you to:

  • Explore the emotional, psychological, spiritual and ancestral influences on your oral health
  • Receive a channeled embroidered codes to support integration and activation of healing in your energetic body
  • Get a personalised guided visualisation.

Also it’s fun! The Holistic Tooth Fairy approach to oral health adds pleasure and relaxation to your life (because, trust me, your teeth and gums want you to feel good).

You don’t have to do it alone

It’s not hard to learn about holistic strategies for healing your teeth.

Integrating them consistently into your life in order to get the desired results is more difficult.

That’s why people who work with me consistently are the ones most likely to actually succeed in stabilizing receding gums, remineraliing cavities, whitening enamel and straightening teeth.

If you have tried to do it on your own and aren’t getting the results you want, I can help.

Check out the menu of Holistic Tooth Fairy experiences, with four ways to get me on your teeth healing team.

Natural solutions for gingivitis or gum disease

Natural solutions for gingivitis or gum disease

What is gingivitis or gum disease?

Gum disease or gingivitis covers a continuum of symptoms such as bleeding gums, gum recession and gum pockets which may or may not proceed to ginigivitis and eventually periodontis.  Left untreated the consequences can range from losing to teeth to heart disease.

Are you looking for natural solutions to managing gingivitis (gum disease) that are aligned with your unique body, history and circumstances?

The holistic approach is gentle, non-invasive and preventative as well as effective at relieving bleeding, stabilizing gum recession and reversing gum pockets. 

When you understand the unique combination of factors that influence YOUR gum health, you can stabilize your gums, prevent or reverse gingivitis, and keep your teeth safe without surgery or other dental procedures.

Mainstream dentistry responds to these symptoms and stages with aggressive cleaning to remove bacteria and surgery to repair bone and soft tissue. These procedures are painful, expensive and disempowering.

When you understand the unique combination of factors that influence YOUR gum health, you can stabilize your gums, prevent or reverse gingivitis, and keep your teeth safe without surgery or other dental procedures.

 

Gum disease can be caused by any combination of the following factors.

One of these influences alone is  unlikely to cause gum disease.  However, where there are symptoms of gingivits or gum disease it’s likely the result of two or more risk factors accumulating.

External influences on gums

  • toxins in the environment
  • medications causing dry mouth or bone loss
  • amalgam (mercury) fillings
  • root canal toxicity
  • teeth extractions
  • aggressive dental hygienist cleaning
  • poor quality dental procedures
  • wearing braces
  • wearing a night guard for bruxism
  • ill-fitting veneers
  • tongue or lip piercing
  • TMJ disorder
  • teeth grinding and clenching
  • pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • poor brushing technique

It’s probably pretty straightforward to identify what, if any, external factors are influencing your gingivitis or gum disease.

Internal influences on gums

  • mineral deficiency
  • mineral imbalance of phosphorus and calcium
  • A, D, K or C vitamin deficiency
  • stress
  • eating disorder
  • loss of identity
  • fear of visibility
  • suppressed emotions
  • childhood trauma
  • epigenetics (family trauma)
  • past life trauma

 

 

 

It’s not always easy to know what kind of internal factors could be underlying your gum symptoms.

 

 

To help identify internal factors that may be causing your gingivitis, ask yourself:

 

  • Are your symptoms only in one or two parts of your mouth, or are all of your gums affected?
  • Is there a family history of gum disease?
  • Are you on a restricted diet of any kind?
  • Do your gum symptoms flare up more in certain circumstances?
  • Are you living the life you want?

These are the kinds of questions I explore with my clients.

A Quantum Teeth Reading can help you make sense of your symptoms by exploring the emotional, psychological, spiritual or ancestral influences on your oral health.

Natural solutions for gum disease include:

  • removing toxins from your body, diet or environment
  • avoiding aggressive, invasive dental, cosmetic or orthodontic procedures
  • adding minerals to your diet
  • adding vitamins to your diet
  • relaxing your jaw
  • using correct brushing and flossing technique
  • minimising stress
  • enjoying relaxation and pleasure
  • having a sense of purpose
  • releasing old traumas and pent up feelings

Quantum Teeth Coaching tailors natural solutions to gingivitis and gum disease that stop cure AND prevent by addressing both internal and external factors.

Yoga for Receding Gums

Most people are so used to carrying tension in their jaw that they aren’t even aware of it.This easy yoga hack can be incorporated into any level of practice.

How many teeth in your mouth (and what do they mean)?

How many teeth in your mouth (and what do they mean)?

Holding onto baby teeth

There are normally 32 in an adult human mouth, and each of them has their own emotional and psychological associations which can help us to understand why one tooth is vulnerable to decay when another isn’t.

The gummy smile of a newborn baby hides the secret of their adult appearance. We are born with the buds of all our baby teeth (aka milk teeth or deciduous teeth) AND our adult teeth (aka permanent teeth) lying in wait inside our gums.

Baby teeth start to emerge after a few months, causing sleepless nights for many parents. It takes a couple of years for all 20 baby teeth to come through. They start falling out at about 6-7 years old, in the same order that they came in.

Not everyone loses all their baby teeth on time, in order, or ever. Baby teeth that won’t budge may force the adult teeth to come through at odd angles in the gum, sometimes causing much more serious problems than ‘shark teeth’.

A physical reason for baby teeth that won’t budge may be that the jaw is too narrow and the teeth are too crowded for the adult tooth to push the baby tooth out of the way.

There may also be emotional or psychological factors influencing baby teeth to stay put, for example a child’s reluctance to grow into the expectations and responsibilities that come with maturity.

The wisdom of teeth

With 32 teeth, adults have many more teeth than babies because our jaws are bigger and there’s more room for more teeth. However, diets heavy in grains and light on teeth healing nutrients make for narrow jaws and crowded teeth.

Some people don’t ever grow 4 wisdom teeth (aka third molars), possibly an evolutionary response to the narrowing of our jaws in agricultural cultures. I started adulthood with 31 teeth because I only had 3 wisdoms and they were impacted- not growing in straight – which was why they all got extracted in my early 20s.

It’s common to have wisdom teeth to cause a world of trouble in the back of our mouths (like the naughty kids at the back to the class). They can even disrupt the alignment of our front teeth as they jostle for space in our gums.

Dentists are often very proactive about extracting wisdom teeth, even when they are not causing problems. The rationale is that the later in life wisdom teeth are extracted, the worse the complications.

However, wisdom teeth play an important role in the energy system of the body, particularly the expression of our individuality. I wish I still had mine.

Wisdom teeth sit on the Heart Meridian so the metaphysical associations with these teeth include emotions of loneliness, grief, inhibition and humiliation.  It’s not surprising that these are common problems for young adults around the age wisdom teeth emerge.

In  Dr Michèle Caffin’s framework the upper right wisdom tooth relates to the way we try to communicate with the material and spiritual worlds. The top left wisdom relates to a fear of rejection. The lower right wisdom is aligned with the energy of our physical body. The lower left wisdom reflects how we express our feelings with the people around us.

How many teeth give you grief?

There is no right or wrong number of teeth for us to grow. Some people are gifted with more than 32, many of us grow fewer.

The important thing is to keep our teeth healthy and strong throughout our lives.  When a tooth is extracted as a result of decay, infection or gum disease, the metaphysical influences underlying our symptoms remain unresolved.

The purely physical responses by dentistry to teeth and gum problems, such as fillings, root canals and extractions can leave us vulnerable to ongoing issues in that part of the mouth or on in the rest of the body connected to that Meridian.

Learning to love liver to prevent a root canal

For a genuine super-food, liver gets a very bad rap. Most people, when I recommend liver as a essential teeth and gum healing food, grimace and shudder at thought of eating this most accessible of offal.  However, when I ask if they think they could bear to eat pâté, they will often relax.

Political Teeth

What do Nazis have to do with your teeth?

A holistic approach to oral health doesn’t stop at the boundaries of our bodies (or even at the edge of our aura). 

We exist in communities that are connected globally in real time and our mouths are not separate from what is going on in the world.

If you feel like current events are setting your teeth on edge, that is not just a turn of phrase.

The political is personal and our teeth can respond rapidly and catastrophically to subconscious thoughts and feelings about what is going on around us.

Today I am sharing an email I sent to the Holistic Tooth Fairy Circle on 17 August 2017.

As well as international bombings, climate change disasters, refugee crises, apparently endless examples of corporate crime, misogyny, racism and homophobia, three recent events in particular have almost paralyzed me this week.

  • The threat of nuclear war suddenly became more urgent than I can remember since my teens.
  • In New Zealand where I live a Maori woman politician I deeply admire was hounded out of office for trying to speak out about poverty.
  • Nazis and the KKK marching without hoods in Charlottesville

Each of these three events has deep emotional resonance with my own life experiences: growing up in the Cold War 1980s, single parenting on a government benefit through the 1990s, and my family history of poverty and pogroms in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

I have been riding a rollercoaster of emotional and physical responses to the news, using all the metaphysical resources at my disposal to avoid retreating into numbness. I am determined that I will not silently acquiesce to the world going to hell in a handbasket on my watch.

Not only because I want to be on the right side of history but because my teeth won’t let me stand by. One of my teeth is loose in its socket and I have a little cavity which is niggling and I believe these are connected to a deep-seated (ancestral) fear of speaking out.

When we don’t speak our authentic truth we undermine our teeth.

When we are silent in the face of injustice we undermine our teeth.

When we are too fearful to stand up for what we believe in, we undermine our teeth.

In trying to find ways that I can add my voice to those speaking out against racist, sexist bullies I’ve made this video, and ‘grafittied’ this billboard. I’ve hijacked my own personal Facebook Profile and my Holistic Tooth Fairy Twitter feed with political posts. It feels terrifying (and exhilarating).

Feeling the fear

It feels particularly risky to my livelihood to use this platform to speak out against racist, sexist, planet-destroying bullies. So I found myself unable to write anything- this draft stayed open and almost blank on my desktop for two whole days while I spun my wheels (or rather scrolled my FB feed, which is the digital equivalent).

Reading this article today woke me up. I have a responsibility to share what I know about the connection between your teeth, prejudice, inequality and bullying.

I need to let you know that even if you don’t feel the external effects of prejudice (because you are cushioned by white/class/cis privilege) feeling numb undermines your well-being, and in this particular context, undermines your teeth.

I encourage you to find ways to process your feelings in response to the current events most disturbing to you.

I encourage you to be honest with yourself about what you feel as you witness others being attacked for speaking up.

I encourage you to find ways to speak your truth while keeping yourself safe from attack.

I have adopted the Obama family motto to help guide my activism: ‘When they go low, we go high.’

My Nazi root canal

I’m not encouraging you to put yourself in the middle of a mob, or tell secrets that make you vulnerable to attack. But I’m telling my secret because it will help explain why I’m writing this today.

My first root canal was triggered by a shame-filled period of homelessness on the run from Nazi-punk bullies who turned on me when I challenged their anti-semitism.

It was not a co-incidence. The connection between the Nazi bullying and my root canal is obvious even if the exact mechanism isn’t clear.

It could be that the experience ‘turned on’ an epi-genetic predisposition to weak teeth which can be traced to ancestral traumas of impoverishment and anti-semitism.

Or maybe my terror tipped the balance in an accumulation of stressors built up from conception through to my teens.

It could be that the unbalancing of my root chakra (related to safety, home and ancestry) undermined the root of my tooth.

Or maybe it was simply poor diet, physical tension, self-medicating with drugs and alcohol and an irregular lifestyle that caused that particular tooth to die. Poor people are particularly vulnerable to these easily measurable factors that undermine teeth and gum health.

Probably it was a combination of all these things. Looking at the bigger picture behind and around your teeth troubles is part of the healing we need to do, for ourselves and each other.

You and your teeth are not separate from the rest of society. We are all connected. Taking charge of our own oral health also means taking responsibility as global citizens.

Arohanui,

Metaphysical teeth: Self-help strategies for oral health

Metaphysical teeth: Self-help strategies for oral health

Metaphysics is the study of abstract ideas, concepts and systems.  There is more to teeth and gums than their existence as physical objects within our bodies. Economics, aesthetics, psychology, spirituality, meridians, family stories and cultural myths are just a few of the metaphysical systems that can influence our teeth and gums.

Metaphysical influences are experienced consciously or subconsciously in how we think, feel and act in relation to our mouths. Metaphysical influences also affect the unconscious biological systems of our bodies at a cellular level.

The metaphysics of the mouth is a fascinating, potent, under-documented arena which I think may have the potential to explain many of the frustrating mysteries of oral ill-health.

Metaphysical teeth and gum self-help

I incorporate a number of metaphysical practices into both my personal teeth and gum care, and my coaching practice. This infographic summarizes some of the common metaphysical associations with oral health along with some of the most easily accessible non-physical self-help strategies.  This is a snapshot of my current thinking, which is constantly evolving in response to my own experiences and those of my coaching clients.

Metaphysical teeth and gum self help suggestions

Metaphysical teeth and gum self help suggestions

How to use metaphysical teeth and gum self help

Metaphysical teeth and gum strategies complement physical strategies such as diet, exercise and oral hygiene. By incorporating these non-physical approaches that address underlying issues, it is possible extend the scope of holistic teeth healing which is particularly helpful in cases where the physical strategies, including mainstream dental interventions and advice fail to prevent continuing tooth decay and gum disease.

I do not recommend attempting to heal your teeth with metaphysical self-help only. This approach should be part of a multi-faceted plan that incorporates diet, exercise, oral hygiene and professional dental advice. The chakra framework is my own way of organizing these ideas as a sort of mnemonic (aid to memory). Please don’t consider the chakras as boundaries that limit the interplay of these metaphysical associations and strategies. For example, feel free to use grounding as a strategy for responding to dreams about teeth; or use forgiveness/self-forgiveness to help with feelings of shame relating to teeth.

Seeking within for toothache meaning

Seeking within for toothache meaning

Asking your intuition about your toothache meaning can put you in touch with the subconscious feelings and thoughts that influence your oral health.

The metaphysics of the mouth can also include meridians, chakras, dreams, ancestral influences, family and cultural stories, popular culture, emotions and mindset.

One way to tune in to find your signal amongst the noise is through stilling the mind with relaxed curiosity.

My intuition

Intuition plays a significant role in my holistic teeth healing coaching practice.

Since my own experience of dramatically healing my own teeth five years ago I have read widely about alternative approaches to dental health.  I’ve experimented on myself, then friends and family, and eventually I started sharing my knowledge with clients.

When working with clients I not only draw on my years of research and experience, I will also allow my intuition guide my recommendations.

In practice this means a few minutes quiet meditation before the session starts. I try to set aside my ego and open myself so that I can respond to your toothache meaning.

I listen not only to what you say but also what you don’t say. I respond not only what I know, but with what you don’t yet know that you know.

Your intuition

More importantly, I encourage my clients to learn to tune into your own intuition around what your teeth and gums need.

If you already have ways of listening in to your intuition we will work with those.

If not, I often encourage meditation and/or journalling as a starting point.

Try listening to your body- the twinges, the nausea, the aches and the pleasures.

You might be surprised at the ideas that come to you when you allow yourself space to tune in to your intuition for your mouth, or you might think ‘of course!’

Asking your intuition about your toothache meaning can put you in touch with the subconscious feelings and thoughts that influence your oral health.

The metaphysics of the mouth can also include meridians, chakras, dreams, ancestral influences, family and cultural stories, popular culture, emotions and mindset.

One way to tune in to find your signal amongst the noise is through stilling the mind with relaxed curiosity.

 

 

Metaphyscial influences

I believe that our feelings and thoughts are among the metaphysical influences on the health of our teeth and gums as adults.  Many of us have been disempowered, (or worse traumatised), by past dental experiences. We carry feelings of helplessness, pain, grief, shame and fear that affect our body’s ability to heal itself naturally. We often have difficulty identifying, let alone communicating to dentists, what our boundaries and personal priorities are for our own bodies.

Intuition and your dentist

Trusting your intuition may mean

  • requesting tests,
  • getting a second opinion from another dentist, or
  • consulting an complementary therapist
  • exploring new ways of eating, or cleaning your teeth, or holding your jaw.

What does your intuition tell you now?
