The Amazing Secret Dentistry has been hiding from you for 70 years!
Sugar and bacteria, on your teeth, are not the primary cause of cavities. Sugar, in your gut, and the resulting imbalance in your organs is the first step that results in cavities.
A faulty, 70 year old, dental cavity theory has misled the public into thinking sugar and bacteria on the teeth cause cavities. Their treatments of emphasing tooth brushing, flossing, and fluoride treatments are continuing to fail and are minimally effective. The primary cause of cavities is not outside the teeth but inside.
Holistic dentistry and healthcare have taught for years the importance of balance for optimal health. Chronic diseases, many infectious diseases, gum disease, and now even cavities are confirmed to be caused by internal imbalances.
Modern dental research is now proving that the primary cause of cavities is an imbalance inside the body that controls the nutrients to your teeth. (“The Systemic Theory of Dental Caries”, Ken Southward, DDS., General Dentistry, Sept./Oct., Vol. 59, #5, pp.367-373.) The first step in the cavity is an imbalance in your hypothalamus gland. When this gland slows down or stops secreting a hormone, that controls your parotid gland, the cavity process starts. This slow down of your parotid gland’s hormone slows down the flow of nutrition to your teeth. This hormone controls the flow of nutrients to feed and rebuild your teeth. When the flow slows down or even reverses your teeth start to starve and can’t repair themselves.
When the teeth are assaulted by acid from the bacteria on your teeth they can’t fight the damage and repair fast enough, then you get a cavity.
Things that start the whole process and slow down the hypothalamus gland are too much sugar in your diet, excessive free radicals (i.e. smoking, toxins …), lack of antioxidants, and not enough fresh fruits and vegetables.
Step one in the cavity process is not acid or sugar on your teeth, but the reversal of nutrients to your teeth caused by an internal imbalance.
Therefore, eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, avoid free radicals, and supplement with strong antioxidants (more on antioxidants in another blog).
