The current theory of tooth decay is not accurate. It is based on an outdated model of germs causing disease. While it is supposed that tooth decay is caused by Strep Mutans, we see that this is either highly unlikely, or impossible since the Strep Mutans would have to act like no other bacteria on the planet to be the cause of tooth decay. Meanwhile, both scientific evidence and anthroplogical evidence show, that tooth decay is caused when your child's internal body chemistry becomes unbalanced, and the body becomes deficient, from eating unwholesome foods.

We are not told that this is the real cause of early childhood tooth decay, because such information does not support the $100,000,000,000 per year dental industry. With close to 100% of the United States population being susceptibilities to tooth decay and with baby bottle tooth decay on the rise, it is time we heard the truth.

Childhood tooth decay is a preventable, treatable, and usually curable occurrence. We will learn what its cause is, how to treat it, and what you need to be aware of for your and your child's health. Included on this page, is a protocol to follow, that will and must significantly improve the health of your child's teeth and gums, and it will very likely, slow down, or reverse, the process of tooth decay.

This article is a bit lengthy, but in reading it you will become aligned with the truth of the cause and treatment of childhood tooth decay. To the right is a table of contents, for help. You will also see, at the bottom of the page, x-ray proof, that tooth decay is healable, we will learn also how to prevent it in children.

Why The Current Theory of Tooth Decay Does not Hold Water

The curent theory of tooth decay does not make sense when you examine it honestly.

The current theory about early childhood cavities from the ADA “Tooth decay is a destruction of the tooth enamel. It occurs when foods containing carbohydrates (sugars and starches) such as milk, pop, raisins, cakes or candy are frequently left on the teeth. Bacteria that live in the mouth thrive on these foods, producing acids as a result. Over a period of time, these acids destroy tooth enamel, resulting in tooth decay.” Here's the link to the ADA site, you can read it for yourself.

1. Action of bacterial Acid does not decay teeth in death.

Understanding Why Children's Teeth Decay

Why do some children's teeth decay, while other teeth remain immune? Is it simply a matter of contracting the bacteria that is said to cause cavities, or is it a matter of nutrition and diet?

Cause and Treatments of Early Childhood Tooth Decay

Breastfeeding helps prevent early childhood caries. Since the cause of tooth decay, as we now know, is a deficiency in nutrients, caused by wrong diet choices prior to conception, during pregnancy and during the lactation phase, we heal tooth decay by providing a remedy to the nutrient loss. The vehicle for these nutrients is breast milk. So breastfeeding is extremely helpful, and that includes night feeding.

If your child is not breastfeeding, then you can modify the suggestions and still produce excellent results. After the treatment protocol and some pictures, I have provided you with a list of foods you must avoid. As the toxic conditions created in the bloodstream by these foods, is a substantial factor in your child's tooth decay. In trying these treatments you will also find many other health improvements in your child, including increased alertness, intelligence, and a more positive mood.

The Bodies True Needs of Calcium and Phosphorus

The main cause of tooth decay is a deficiency of usable minerals in the blood stream of the pregnant mother. Since the infant is growing at a rapid rate, it will exhaust the mother's supply of bone building nutrients rapidly, so the supply must be replenished quickly. From several sources, including the analysis by Weston Price of the Diets of Eskimo's, of Canadian Indians, of the Swiss in the Alpine Valley's, by analysis of dietary patterns of the Masai in Africa, and of a study done in 1910 Hoffstrom, the average, calcium need for pregnancy and lacation is 2.5 grams per day! The Average phosphorus need, is 4 grams per day. In addition to those minerals, the mother must consume adequate fat soluble vitamins to help the body utilize calcium, phosphorus and other minerals.

What about Fluoride?

Fluoride is poisonous and is not an effective long term solution for healing or preventing baby bottle tooth decay.

X-Rays of Cavities in Teeth Healing, from Dr. Price

Below is are pieces of a large photograph from one girls case. Dr. Price writes, for fig 137 "Case of a girl who had fourty-two cavities in twenty-four teeth. With the diet reinforced with Activator X, the pulp chambers built seconday dentin and all the teeth where saved. Full dentures had been recommened." In other words, they where going to remove all of this girl's teeth.



Tooth Cavity X-ray

Before, Notice how the two right teeth are grey with small white spots, the white is the tooth enamel.

X-Ray Showing Enamel Growth

After, I believe this x-ray is taken six month's later, notice the teeth on the right with much thicker enamel.

Healing Early Childhood Tooth Decay

Tooth decay and tooth healing happens through two mechanisms. #1 From within the tooth from a toxic blood supply or a deficient blood supply to the tooth. #2 Defective saliva within the mouth. “I feel perfectly confident that both inside the tooth and outside on the surface new construction is occurring constantly, even if at a slow rate.” 17 “Nearly all tooth decay comes from the blood stream, saliva, and the inside of the teeth, not only from the external surface. The teeth deteriorate but it is from the toxic blood stream and the enamel-destroying toxic saliva which is the result of an impure blood stream.” 18

Germs are a secondary factor in tooth decay. So even if the adult’s teeth and mouth are totally clean and void of bacteria’s, the tooth will still decay. The tooth will still decay because there are not enough minerals in the body, primarily Calcium, Magnesium, and Phosphorus, to create a new tooth surface. This also means if your child has tooth problems, that their overall body is both weak and depleted as the minerals are moving from the teeth to other more important parts.

Foods to Avoid!

More about Diet and Proper Tooth Care, Foods that Deplete minerals and create chemical imbalances in your body

White Sugar, evaporated Cane Juice, Corn Syrup, and Organic Cane Sugar – White Sugar is a skeletonized product, in order to have a long shelf life, all of it’s main constituents are removed.

Scientific evidence against sugar has been mounting for decades. As early as 1933 research showed that increased consumption of sugar caused an increase in various disease conditions in school children. Sugar, especially fructose, has been shown to shorten life in numerous animal experiments. In the 1950’s British researcher Yudkin published persuasive findings that excessive use of sugar was associated with the following conditions: release of free fatty acids in the aorta, increase in blood insulin levels, increase in blood corticosteroid levels, increase in gastric acidity, shrinkage of the pancreas and enlargement of the liver and adrenal glands. Numerous subsequent studies have positively correlated sugar consumption with heart disease… A survey of medical journals in the 1970s produced findings implicating sugar as a causative factor in kidney disease, liver disease, shortened life span, increased desire for coffee and tobacco, arteriosclerosis and coronary heart disease. 7 Finally sugar consumption was proved by Dr. Melvin Page to leech calcium out of our bones. 8 This is how sugar contributes to tooth decay, it has little to do with sugar resting on the surface of the tooth.

The vitamins and minerals needed to properly digest sugar are removed from sugar by various chemical processes. The purpose of removing these essential nutrients, is that with these nutrients removed, sugar has an almost limitless shelf life. It is used commonly in our food to mask foul flavors from chemical processing, and to preserve factory made foods. I believe that the denatured sugar which we eat, adheres to the law of balance. After having been sucked dry of all it’s life force, it enters the body and attempts to create it’s own homeostasis. The body, consisting of more life force than sugar, transfer’s it’s nutrients to the sugar, to bring it back into balance.

White Flour and Flour products - White flour has had it’s vitamin and mineral content removed to do it’s high level of rancidity. Freshly ground flour seldom stays good for more than two weeks even when it is refrigerated. To solve this problem, food manufacturer’s remove the vitamins and minerals from the flour to prevent it from going rancid. This was done with the selfish motive of profit for the food company, not in harmony with nature’s law of balance. “[I]n the production of refined white flour approximately eighty percent or four-fifths of the phosphorous and calcium content are usually removed, together with the vitamins and minerals provided in the embryo or germ. The evidence indicates that a very important factor in the lowering of the reproductive efficiency of womanhood is directly related to the removal of vitamin E in the processing of wheat.” 9 Because the vitamins in the flour create a synergistic effect on the body, there’s little chance that any of the phosphorous in the devitalized flour is absorbable.

Low cost Vegetable Oils and Hydrogenated Oils – It is important to understand that, of all substances ingested by the body, it is polyunsaturated oils that are rendered most dangerous by food processing, especially unstable omega-3 linolenic acid. In the old days oil was extracted with slow moving stone presses. In large factories seeds are heated to 230 degrees farenheit. The oil is then squeezed out at pressures from 10 to 20 tons per inch. In order to extract oil from the final pulp, chemicals are added such as hexane. The solvent is boiled but up to 100 part per million remain in the oil. The solvent is toxic, and it also bonds to toxic pesticides in the seeds. The high temperature processing causes the weak carbon bonds of the unsaturated fatty acids to break apart, thereby creating dangerous free radicals. The normal antioxidants to clean up the free radicals have been destroyed by the high temperature processing. And finally BHT and BHA, both suspected of causing cancer and brain damage are added to the oils to replace the lost natural preservatives which where destroyed by the heat processing. 10Any cheap oil, such as soy, corn, cottonseed, canola, ect. falls under this category. Still want to eat this oil?

Partially hydrogenated margarines and shortening are even worse for you than the highly refined vegetable oils from which they are made because of chemical changes that occur during the hydrogenation process. Man made trans fats are toxins to the body, but unfortunately your digestive system does not recognize them as such. Instead of eliminating them, your body incorporates the trans fats into the cell membranes as though they where naturally occurring fats called cis fats. Your cell actually become partially hydrogenated. This interferes with cellular metabolism because it changes the normal chemical reactions which take place in the cell. 11

Iodized Salt – Normal table salt is highly refined. Salt is the product of a chemical and high temperature industrial process that removes all the valuable magnesium salts as well as trace minerals naturally occurring in the sea. To keep salt dry, salt refiners adulterate this “pure” product with several harmful additives, including aluminum compounds. To replace the natural iodine salts that are removed during processing, potassium iodide is added in amounts that can be toxic. To stabilize the volatile iodide compounds, the processors add dextrose which turns the iodized salt a purplish color. A bleaching agent is then necessary to restore whiteness to the salt. Far different than natural sea salt, refined salt can lead to sodium starvation as well as an over stimulation of the glandular system contributing to a host of degenerative diseases. 12

Pasteurized Milk & powdered Milk

The milk sold in the supermarket is bad for everybody. The modern milk cow is a mutant cow which produces three to four times as much milk as a standard cow. This mutant cow has been selectively bred from cows who have active pituitary glands, and is then fed an excessively high protein diet. These overactive pituitary glands produce growth hormones, which are present in today’s milk supply. While small amounts of hormones in cows milk is okay, excessive pituitary hormones are also associated with tumor formation, and some studies link milk consumption with cancer. The freak pituitary cow is prone to many diseases. She almost always secretes pus into her milk and needs frequent doses of antibiotics. The high protein feed these cows eat is made from soy beans. This is not the cows natural diet, and there is no scientific information as to the quality of the protein in the soy fed milk. Pasteurizing milk is no guarantee of cleanliness. There was a salmonella outbreak in 1985 in Illinois affecting 14,000 people. Pasteurization destroys the helpful organisms found in raw milk, leaving the finished product devoid of any protective mechanism should undesirable bacteria inadvertently contaminate the supply. Heat alters the milk’s amino acids, it promotes rancidity of unsaturated fatty acids and destruction of vitamins. Vitamin C loss exceeds 50%, and other vitamin loss runs as high as 80%. Vitamin B-12 is totally destroyed. Milk comes with enzymes which help the body digest the milk. Pasteurization kills all of these enzymes. After pasteurization synthetic vitamin D-2 may be added which has been linked to heart disease. Because milk is devoid of its enzyme content, it puts an enormous strain on the body’s digestive mechanism. In the elderly, and those with milk intolerance or weak digestion, the milk passes through not fully digested and can build up around the tiny villi of the small intestine preventing the absorption of the vital nutrients and promoting the uptake of toxic substances.13

Soy Milk, Soy Meat, Soy Protein, Soy Formula and Tofu can contribute to early childhood caries – Soy protein powder is high in mineral-blocking phytates, thyroid depressing phytoestrogens and potent enzyme inhibitors that depress growth and cause cancer. Phytates are substances that block the absorption of minerals in the body. Soybeans are high in phytates and contain potent enzyme inhibitors that are only deactiviated by fermentation and not by ordinary cooking. These inhibitors can lead to protein assimilation problems in those who consume unfermented soy product frequently. Soy milk often substituted for cow’s milk, also has a high phyatate content and can lead to mineral dieficiences. Phytoestrogens found in soy foods, although touted as panaceas for heart disease, cancer and osteoporosis, are potent endocrine disrupters as well as goitrogens – substances that depress thyroid function. 14

Unsoaked Grains and Nuts, including Cereal, Granola, Peanut Butter, Bread, and Pasta, Cracker’s and Cookies, including Organic varieties– Phosphorus in the bran of whole grains is tied up in a substance called phytic acid. Whole grains can be a signficant contributor to early childhood caries. Phytic acid combines with iron, calcium, magnesium, copper and zinc in the intestinal tract, blocking their absorption. Whole grains also contain enzyme inhibitors that can interfere with digestion. Whole grains that have been processed by high heat and pressure to produce puffed wheat, oats, and rice are actually quite toxic and have caused rapid death in test animals. Breakfast cerals can have more adverse effects on blood sugar then refined sugar and white flour because they have been processed at high temperatures and pressures to make their shapes. This process leaves phytic acid intact but destroys phytase, an enzyme that breaks down some of the phytic acid in the digestive tract. Most grains and legume available in supermarkets have been treated numerous times with pesticides and other sprays that inhibit mold and vermin. 15 I used to eat organic breakfast cereal, sometimes made with puffed wheat. These grain cereals did not have pesticides and other harmful chemical additives, as they where organic. However, being organic just meant that my toxic puffed oats where free of other possibly dangerous substances. Good thing I used organic!

Non-Pasture Fed Meat & Eggs – The meat, milk, and eggs in our supermarkets are highly contaminated and vastly inferior in nutritional quality to those available to our ancestors just a few decades ago. Modern cattle-raising techniques include the use of steroids to make meat more tender and antibiotics that allow cattle to survive in crowded feedlots. Diseased animals routinely pass inspection and find their way into the food supply. Chicken are raised in crowded pens, often under artificial light both night and day and fed on substandard food. Their eggs are inferior in nutritional qualities to those of free-range, properly nourished hens. According to renowned cancer specialist Virginia Livingston-Wheeler, most chicken and nearly half the beef consumed in America today is cancerous and pathogenic. Her research has convinced her that these cancers are transmissible to man. 16

These are just some ideas, I am not a dentist, so I cannot treat or suggest a treatment for your program. Take responsibility for your health. And know that, by following the Dietary protocols explained by Dr. Price, many people have stopped or reversed their tooth decay. The enamel can hypothetically cover the tooth's surface, so that the decay stops progressing. This is accomplished with special dietary guidelines, and a supplement of high vitamin cod liver oil, mixed with high vitamin butter oil, (or large amounts of high vitamin butter).

You must also see my foods to avoid list, and avoid the foods mentioned because they can deplete the body of nutrients.

Tooth problems are a result of following a lifestyle which is in opposition to Nature's laws. Nature did not intend for us to eat many of the low energy commercial foods which many of us eat. We were designed to eat high nutrient foods. Inertia, the freezing of our divine energy, is the underlying factor that exists within us, that prevents us from knowing and living in alignment with the true needs of our bodies.
