My 5 Best Websites for Natural Oral Health

My 5 Best Websites for Natural Oral Health

As soon as you start searching for information about oral health on the internet you can quickly become overwhelmed by thousands of choices, most of them fronting small dental practices or large toothpaste manufacturers. Almost all offer the same tired mainstream advice about brushing with fluoride as the best form of prevention.

When you narrow your search down to natural teeth care,  it’s a bit like entering a parallel universe dominated by alt-oral clickbait. You have to navigate through minefields of conspiracy theory and wacky home remedies to find the nuggets of gold.

I try to make sure that the Holistic Tooth Fairy is one of the best websites for natural oral health. If you like this site, you might also like this personal selection of my five favorites:

Healing Teeth Naturally is comprehensive in covering natural, holistic and conventional approaches to oral health in a well-organised manner. The site is all text, few images (except of crystals) and no videos. It’s published in English but translations of some pages are available in German, French, Greek,  Spanish, Slovene and Italian. Ulla Schmid describes her site as ‘humanitarian’  and she isn’t selling anything.

Hippy friendly. 

Ora Wellness offers tons of excellent information about natural oral health, and lots of useful but low-fi videos. Will and Susan Revak have developed their own range of natural products for teeth and gums, which I haven’t tried because shipping from Hawai’i to New Zealand is stupidly expensive.

Family friendly.

Wellness Mama is a natural living website with a smattering of very good blog posts about oral health, including home made toothpaste and toothpowder recipes. Katie Wells is a solid researcher backed by a team, and she has built a substantial business with her natural living blog, books and podcast (while home schooling six children). There’s plenty of valuable free content grounded in her genuine passion for natural teeth healing, just sometimes it’s buried in a mountain of affiliate promotions and advertising.

DIY friendly.

 

Cure Tooth Decay is the website of the book of the same name (which I reviewed here). The site covers a lot of the same material as the book and is easier to search, though still heavy reading. This website was my first experience of alt-oral, and even before I read the book I was able to prevent a root canal by following the dietary advice I found on the site. The book’s author, Ramiel Nagel, sadly passed away last year, yet I find it slightly creepy that his online bio hasn’t changed since he was alive. 

Carnivore friendly.

 

Any dentist can call themselves ‘holistic’ even if their practice is entirely conventional. Because it’s a coveted search term with no regulation, finding a holistic dentist you can trust can be tricky. When you are searching for a local dentist who is truly holistic, try comparing their website to Evolve Dental.  Not many dentists have a blog as good as Evolve’s but if their services and philosophy are similar (e.g. safe amalgam removal and a dietary approach to prevention), then they are probably genuinely holistic.

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. It is good for your teeth and gums because relaxing those muscles allows blood to flow more freely, carrying nutrients and oxygen to the teeth and gums. It also helps make sure that you am not clenching your teeth, which puts pressure on the enamel.

A simple guide to online coaching

A simple guide to online coaching

Any timezone, any place

A consultation with the Holistic Tooth Fairy is nothing like going to the dentist! It’s easy, empowering and even fun!

All my consultations are done in online video calls which means that you can work with me no matter what country or what time zone you are in.

You can do it in your pajamas!

You can do it in your car!

You can do it lying down or breastfeeding or with a drink in your hand!

You don’t need a babysitter!

Don’t open wide

My recommendations are made in response to the information you tell me about your history, lifestyle and current symptoms so I don’t need to see your teeth (though photos and/or a copy of your most recent x-ray can be helpful).

How to book your video call

First you select your timezone on my calendar, then find a session time that suits you.  If there’s nothing on the first page that fits your schedule, you might need to check my availability a couple of weeks into the future.  I have an alternate calendar available with some extra sessions to suit European time zones.

For a Starter Pack session or a Quantum Teeth Reading you’ll set up payment first by Paypal or credit card, but payment isn’t finalised until you’ve booked a time on the calendar.  For a free 15 minute assessment call, you’ll skip straight to the calendar.

Then you’ll fill in a short questionnaire, about your oral health history and current priorities etc.

Logging in

You’ll receive a confirmation email straight away and two reminder emails (24 hours and 1 hour before your session start time). Make sure you save the time to your own calendar or diary so you don’t forget!

Each of the emails includes the link to login to our online video chat room. If you haven’t used Zoom before, follow the instructions in the first confirmation email to download and install Zoom to your phone or computer in advance.

We both log into our Zoom Room at the agreed time. Make sure your microphone and camera are working. 

What happens on the call

In a Starter Pack session we’ll focus on nutrition, jaw relaxation and oral hygiene. In a Quantum Teeth Reading session we focus on emotional, psychological and spiritual healing strategies. If you want a combination of physical and metaphysical recommendations, book the Starter Pack and let me know in the questionnaire that you want a Quantum Teeth Reading included.

With your permission I may record the session for my own reference.

After your call

I’ll follow up within a few days with an email summarizing the strategies we discussed, along with any links, references or recipes I mentioned during the call.

The Starter Pack and Quantum Teeth Reading include a week of email support which means you can ask questions and get answers to help with implementation and interpretation so you’ll start off strong!

 

 

Free assessments and coaching packages

In a free 15 minute assessment call, we’ll figure out if a coaching package or a single session is a good fit for what you need right now. I can tailor packages to suit:

  • couples or families
  • chronic oral health problems
  • complex general health challenges
  • plant-based diets
  • chronic illness
  • recovery or detox
  • pregnancy and breastfeeding 
  • significant dental procedures such as amalgam or root canal removal

Coaching prices start from $99 AUD and payment plans are available for packages.

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.

Book in now for a free 15 minute video assessment, to see if holistic teeth and gum health coaching is a good fit for what you need.

How to make a Golden Milk drink that helps your gums

How to make a Golden Milk drink that helps your gums

Personally I’ve never acquired the taste for coffee, even though I quite like the smell. I’ve long been grateful that I’m not exposed to coffee’s health hazards, for both oral and general health. However, disliking coffee (and regular tea) has often been socially awkward for me. I never take an invitation to ‘catch up for coffee’ literally.

So I was thrilled the first time I saw Golden Milk on a cafe menu: at last there is a delicious, warm drink that is jammed with ingredients that nourish teeth and gums. It goes by many names: Golden Latte. Golden Milk or  Golden Tea, and Turmeric Tea.

Anti-inflammatory Turmeric

There are also as many flavor variations as there are fancy coffees in a Starbucks but they all have turmeric in common, which gives it the golden glow and the powerful anti-inflammatory qualities.

 

Turmeric’s healing powers

The benefits of consuming turmeric extend to the whole body, but because we are focusing on oral health I’ll just mention a few of its amazing powers.  Turmeric is

  •  Anti-Inflammatory
  • Antioxidant
  • Wound Healing
  • Anti-microbial.

Whether your gums are just starting to recede or you are dealing with chronic periodontal disease, turmeric can help to heal and prevent inflamed gums, abscesses and infections.

 

How to make Golden Milk for gum health

To get the full benefits of turmeric it should be consumed:

  1. warm (or at least room temperature)
  2. with fat for absorption
  3. with black pepper to activate the turmeric.

Extra teeth healing value comes from using butter and  raw milk or bone broth,- all powerful teeth and gum healing foods.

Keep these three things in mind as you take the basic recipe below and adapt it to your preferences and need. Experiment- its hard to go too wrong!

 

Golden Milk basic recipe

Makes one serve.

  • 1 cup raw milk or whole organic milk or coconut milk or activated almond milk or bone broth or water
  • ½ teaspoon or more powdered turmeric, fresh turmeric or fermented turmeric paste
  • dash of black pepper
  • ½-1+ teaspoon butter (or coconut oil)

Optional extras

  • ¼+ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼+ teaspoon ground ginger or grated fresh ginger
  • ¼ tsp cardamom powder  (or 1 pod split)
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 -1 teaspoons raw honey or 1-5  drops pure liquid stevia or maple syrup

Mix all ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat for 5-10 minutes but do NOT bring to the boil.
Whisk well to to blend and foam.

If using fresh turmeric ginger or cardamom strain out the lumpy bits.
Serve warm in a mug garnished with a sprinkle of cinnamon or turmeric.

How to heal cavities naturally

How to heal cavities naturally

Our natural inclination to heal cavities

Most people are surprised when they learn how easy it is to heal cavities naturally without fillings.  Small cavities are the easiest to heal because they come and go all the time in our teeth.

You probably never even realise that you have a most of the small cavities you’ve experienced because they have already been healed naturally before you feel pain or sensitivity. Cavities can come and go in a matter of a few weeks so if that happens in between dental checkups, no one will notice!

What causes small cavities to appear?

Cavities develop when something in your life causes your body to draw down the store of minerals out of your teeth enamel.

It might be an illness, a medication or a change in your diet.  

Often cavities can be triggered by a stressful move, job loss or breakup.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding place have long been recognsied as placing great demands on your teeth (there used to be a saying ‘for every baby a tooth’ because it was so common to lose a tooth with each child). 

What causes small cavities to disappear?

In the normal course of events when you are basically healthy and when your body is no longer under the stress that causes it draw on the strength of your enamel, it will automatically naturally start to remineralize.  

Certain glands produce hormones that drive the remineralization process. A healthy diet and low stress levels help to keep those glands functioning properly.

 

A healthy body will start pushing nutrients back into the teeth as soon as its able to, and the cavity will remineralize leaving no evidence that it was even there. 

 

How to deliberately heal cavities naturally

What holistic teeth healing strategies do is harness that natural inclination of the body to heal small cavities. With deliberate effort we can accelerate and encourage the body’s natural remineralization processes.

In practice, that usually means adding in missing nutrients to nourish and replenish the teeth.

It also involves releasing physical and energetic blocks that may have been inhibiting the body’s natural healing functions.

When we can identify the underlying cause of the cavity, address that issue we are also able to prevent more cavities developing in the future.

All this can be done without any need for dental drilling, filling and billing!

 

Check out my Feed Your Teeth e-book to learn more about the types of food that support your body’s natural remineralization processes.

How I quit sugar without effort, withdrawals or cravings

I stopped eating sugar (fructose) 2.5 years ago, without effort, withdrawals or regret.Before that I was a famous baker of delicious cakes and cookies because I practiced often (and ate my own baking). I was greedy with chocolate. I snacked on dried fruit and guzzled fruit juices.   I ate candy, even when it hurt.

Sexy, sacred teeth healing diet

Here’s a romantic gesture that doesn’t involve setting sensitive teeth on edge with a box of chocolates. Before sugar became the way to seduce a sweetheart, some of the foods most associated with sexuality, virility and fertility are now recognized as teeth healing. And the most powerful teeth healing foods are those which indigenous cultures called sacred because of their association with fertility, growth and life force.

Living teeth need living food

The approach to a teeth healing that I advocate involves getting nutrients in their original context, from eating real food.  The isolated nutrients in supplements, especially when synthesised rather than extracted, lack the complex synergies and the activating qualities available only in whole foods and combinations of foods. These synergies and activating qualities enable our bodies to turn the nutrients we eat into the hormones and proteins that teeth and gums need to be strong and healthy.

Alternatives to Dentists Course Review

Alternatives to Dentists Course Review

Why I recommend Alternatives to Dentists

The Alternatives to Dentists course is a comprehensive introduction to herbal and self-help approaches to cure cavities and prevent tooth decay

I’m the kind of person who likes to make a thing myself, especially if it is a practical thing. I’m a DIYer around the house, a dressmaker, a life-long crafter and a cook-from-scratch food-growing gardener.

I would rather invest in learning a new skill than buying a new product. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that though I don’t have very much personal experience with different kinds of toothpaste or teeth cleaning gadgets  I can speak from personal experience about books and courses in alternative oral health, like this one that I recommend

Alternatives to Dentists is a video course from The Grow Network who offer a range of educational resources for home gardeners, homesteaders, preppers and folks interested in becoming more self-reliant with food and health in particular.

I’ve watched the video right through at least twice, transcribing extensive notes the second time. I refer back to my notes, and the the accompanying booklet frequently as I work with clients.

I consider it to be one of the more valuable resources in the limited pool of information for natural and self-help approaches to oral health.

That’s why I’m partnering with The Grow Network with their current course promotion. If you choose to purchase the course through a link on this page I may recieve a small payment.

 

 

What’s in Alternatives to Dentists?

The video demonstrates several strategies to help prevent tooth decay including how to assess the health of your own teeth, how to clean your teeth with a stick, and how to make a herbal toothpowder.  It also demonstrates a couple of different ways to heal an abscess in your mouth.

The teacher, Doug Simons, is a holistic healer who spent 20 years living with, and learning from indigenous  Tarahumara, the Tohono O’Odham, and Navajo in the Sonoran Desert and other wilderness areas in North America.  

The video quality is professional without being slick or glossy. It is filmed outside and the camera work is very steady and well lit. The sound quality is good (I especially enjoyed the ambient rooster crowing in the background). There are no flashy graphics or gimmicks and you won’t miss them. I felt like I was sitting in a clearing in the woods with Doug, learning in a very direct and accessible way.

 

 

 

Who is Alternatives to Dentists for?

If you are committed to plant-based diet and serious about your teeth health, this course is for you. You will learn about herbal supplements that can help your body to maintain teeth health without animal-sourced foods.

If you practice wild-crafting, foraging, camping or prepping for disaster survival in anywhere in North America, this is an excellent course for you. You will learn about where to find and how to identify a number of American plants with teeth healing properties.

If you are interested in herbal healing for yourself, your family or your clients, no matter where you live in the world, this is a great course for you. You will learn about herbs (which you can buy online as tinctures or dried herbs from anywhere) and techniques for using herbal remedies both for preventing tooth decay and dealing with dental problems.

If you are serious avoiding the dentist, this course is essential. You will learn practical strategies to manage dental problems ranging from small cavities to dental abscesses.

However, if you like your alternative remedies to be branded and packaged, this is probably not the course for you.

It’s ideal for folks who enjoy sometimes-messy DIY approaches to self care.
