Are nuts driving your tooth decay?
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.

Cereals, legumes, nuts and seeds all contain phytic acid which is implicated in both tooth decay and gum recession.

The Bible of nutritional teeth healing
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.

Root canal decisions Part 2: Dead Teeth?
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.

Root canal decisions: A whole body perspective (Part 1)
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.
The root canal is a controversial dental procedure yet most dentists continue to recommend root canals without hesitation while other dentists believe all root canals should be removed. I believe that because everyone is unique, with different combinations of genetics, lifestyle, dental history, family histories, personal health, budgets and priorities there can be no simple answer to the question 'should I get a root canal'. That's why I've developed a checklist designed to help tease out the aspects of your unique situation that may have a bearing on your root canal decision.
