Cure Tooth Decay with Cloud Bread

Cure Tooth Decay with Cloud Bread

How does Cloud Bread cure tooth decay?

(Scroll down for the recipe)

Cloud Bread is a godsend for people seeking to find out how to avoid phytic acid in their diet.  In Cure Tooth Decay, the foundational book about nutrition and teeth health, Ramiel Nagel recommends avoiding phytic acid.  Phytic acid is an anti-nutrient found in grains, nuts, seeds and legumes that undermines the body’s ability to digest and utilize certain nutrients needed to remineralize teeth and regenerate gum tissues and bones  

Most people, when trying to avoid phytic acid, find that bread is one of the most difficult foods to do without. Genuine long ferment sourdough has less phytic acid than bread made with yeast, but it still has some.  Gluten-free bread still has plenty of phytic acid, because it is not related to gluten at all.

And so Cloud Bread is a gift for teeth healing because it is made with absolutely no grains, nuts, seeds or legumes.  In fact, it’s ingredients actually support your teeth health. Cloud bread is high in protein from whole eggs and cream cheese. Cream cheese, even when pasteurized, delivers some valuable nutrients for your teeth including Vitamin A and trace minerals. It also contains the valuable pairing of calcium and phosphorus (which are particularly vulnerable to phytic acid).

Versatile Cloud Bread

Cloud Bread appeals to children and adults alike.  It fills the bread-sized gap in your diet, but also can take the place of cake, cookies, crackers, pizza bases or pancakes. You can even use the batter to make waffles.

Cloud Bread is as soft and bland as Wonder Bread, yet it is filling, nutritious and sturdy enough to contain a burger or sandwich. You can butter it without breakage (and butter is great for teeth). 

It takes only 3 ingredients, and the recipe is simple- but requires care.  You need an electric beater (or really strong arms to whisk the egg whites stiff). And you have to be careful not to let a drop of yolk contaminate the egg whites. The cream of tartar helps the white to quickly achieve stiff peaks and hold their foamy volume. You need a light hand to fold the yolk mixture into the egg whites so you don’t lose any lightness.

You can sweeten the mixture before you bake it, or dress up plain Cloud Bread with fruit and cream. You can make a rich and savory snack with herbs and cheese stirred in, or sprinkled on top. Basically, the variations are only limited by your imagination!

My 5 Best Websites for Natural Oral Health

My 5 Best Websites for Natural Oral Health

Teeth Healing Diet

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.

Stop tooth decay naturally

Holistic teeth healing is different from almost all the dental advice you’ve ever received.  It starts from the principle that the health of our teeth and gums is tied to the health of the rest of our body, in a two way interaction. In order, to understand holistic teeth healing strategies, you really have to understand how teeth, and the rest of your body, are connected.

How to heal decaying baby teeth

How to heal decaying baby teeth

As a parent you want to do whatever is right to keep your baby healthy.

You can feel so guilty to see brown spots or cavities developing on your baby’s teeth.

Yet, discoloration and dental decay can start very young, sometimes within hours of a new tooth erupting!

Breastfeeding does not cause tooth decay

It doesn’t help when some dentists perpetuate the myth that breastfeeding, particularly night feeding, causes cavities.

This is simply not true. Breastmilk actually protects tooth enamel from decay becasue it stops acid and bacterial development in the mouth. It is actually the best thing you can do to keep your baby’s teeth strong and healthy. Even babies born with a genetic predisposition to weak teeth (such as dentinogenesis imperfecti (DI)) can keep their teeth intact with extended breastfeeding. 

As long as there is no food stuck on baby’s teeth, breastmilk is a remineralizing substance (especially if the mother is eating a teeth nourishing diet). Make sure all solid food has been cleaned off baby’s teeth to ensure that breastmilk does only good, and no harm. 

Baby teeth care starts before birth

So if it’s not breastmilk causing cavities, what is?

Toothbuds start to form in the womb, and epi-genetics is a major influence, where the genes that grow healthy teeth are switched on or off by environmental factors such as diet.

The best way to ensure the health of your baby’s teeth and your own, is for you to eat a teeth nourishing diet from conception, through pregnancy and breastfeeding.

A tooth nourishing diet includes a lot more minerals than almost any other way of eating, as well as fat-soluable vitamins that are most easily accessed from high quality animal products.

Younger siblings can be more vulnerable when the mother’s own mineral store has been drawn down during the pregnancy and breastfeeding of older children.

It’s not unusual for women who thrived on a plant-based diet before motherhood, to find that their prefered diet is unable to meet the phsyical demands of growing new humans.

The hard truth is that some (not all) babies simply aren’t able to grow healthy teeth without the specific nutrients only available from animal products.

Starting with teeth nourishing foods

As your baby starts to eat solid food, be sure that they are not eating processed foods. Crackers, rusks, fruit juice and fruit leather and sweetened yoghurt are some of the popular ‘healthy’ processed foods that actually can contribute to tooth decay in babies.

Teeth nourishing foods for babies and toddlers include hard cheese, plain unsweetened yogurt, cooked or raw fruit and vegetables. Learn more about the teeth healing foods in my free e-guide Feed Your Teeth.

Why do baby teeth rot on a good diet?

It’s not all about diet though.  Many babies and children who are conceived, gestated, breastfed and weaned on impeccably healthy diets, with vigilant oral hygiene, nonetheless have bad decay and other problems.

What’s going on when food is not the problem?

In these cases, where poor nutrition can’t be blamed, it’s worth looking at other possible influences such as:

  • Exposure to drugs such as antibiotics in utero or infancy
  • Gut problems and other illnesses that prevent baby or mother from utilizing teeth healing nutrients in a healthy diet
  • Tongue or lip ties
  • Environmental exposure to toxins that block teeth-nourishing nutrients
  • Emotional stress experienced by baby or mother in utero or infancy that inhibit the body’s natural teeth building processes
  • Genetic predisposition to weak teeth, where it runs in the family and may be related to ancestral experiences of famine or other trauma, possibly many generations ago
  • Past life trauma embodied in the baby teeth may be the missing link to make sense of your baby’s teeth problems when nothing else does.

 

Baby teeth trauma may not be their own

The current generation of children born since 2010 seem to be particularly vulnerable to embodying ancestral or past life traumas in their baby teeth. This may be partly because of the cumulative effect of multiple generations that have been malnourished and traumatised.

Many people believe that children today are more likely to be very sensitive to energy and spirit, than was usual in previous generations.  It seems as if these sensitive children (aka Indigo, Crystal or New Earth children) are embodying cummulative, collective, traumas of past generations in their teeth so that these hurts can be recognised, cleared and released. 

Parents who are open to this perspective can support their children to clear and release the trauma while still very young. Addressing these inherited traumas may help adult teeth to come through without problems and the child can manifest her soul purpose with her full potential for emotional and spiritual intelligence.

If this interpretation resonates for you there are a number of ways you can support your baby to clear and release teeth traumas that are not their own. Methods range from kinesiology to imaginative play and are most effective when teeth healing nutrients are central to your baby’s diet.

Has a dentist told you that your cavities or receding gums are your fault because you are drinking too much Coke, you don’t floss enough or you need to stop breastfeeding your baby? And you know that isn’t true!

I’m not going to blame you or shame you.
The underlying causes of your oral health issues are not your fault!

Nature or nurture, ancestry or environment, free will or systemic oppression, unconscious emotions or the degraded food system

These are the factors that make your teeth and gums vulnerable to disease.

Even though your tooth decay and gum disease is not your fault, it is within your power to change.

You can turn your oral health around with natural strategies and healthy habits.

How to make a Golden Milk drink that helps your gums

How to make a Golden Milk drink that helps your gums

Teeth Healing Diet

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 protect your teeth from sugar damage

How to protect your teeth from sugar damage

Teeth Healing Diet

 Protect teeth from sweet temptation

What can you do to protect your teeth from sugar when you succumb to sweet temptation?

We all know that sugar is bad for your teeth, but it can be hard to resist, especially at certain times of the year when sweet treats are everywhere: at parties, as gifts, even as decorations!

As well as the obvious sugars in desserts, candy, cookies and cakes, there are also sugars lurking in:

  • fruit: fresh, dried and juiced
  • alcohol which is basically fermented sugars
  • processed foods
  • savory foods (eg salad dressing, sauce, bread)
  • breakfast cereals and snack bars

Sugar is hard to avoid, even when you are trying. Most people have a sweet tooth to some degree, and some of us are definitely addicts! I gave up eating sugar three years ago, but I had already healed my chronic tooth decay by then, so it is possible to eat sugar and take good care of your teeth.  In fact, the teeth healing diet that cured my cavities actually made it easy to (eventually) become sugar free! I’ve summarised my take on the teeth healing diet in a free guide called ‘Feed Your Teeth’.

IIn this short video I share six simple tips that will help protect your teeth from sugar when you just can’t resist it!  (2.5 minute watch time)

Six tips to protect teeth from sugar damage

1. Try to limit sugary foods and drinks to mealtimes, not inbetween.

2. If you are going to snack on sweets, eat some healthy fats at the same time (eg cream, yoghurt or coconut oil).

3. If you are going to eat lollies, chocolate (preferably dark) is less harmful than candy canes or chewy toffees.

4, Avoid snacking or sucking on sweets over an extended period of time. The less time your teeth spend bathed in sugar, the better.

5. Rinse your mouth with water straight after eating anything sweet.

6. Wait 30-60 minutes before brushing your teeth.
