Fluoride In Our Water And Toothpaste: A Toxin Our Teeth And Bodies Are Healthier Without?

I stopped using fluoride toothpaste decades ago. Why? Because I discovered it’s poisonous to our bodies. Unfortunately, I still had cavities and felt that what I had learned was a bunch of mumbo jumbo and I began using fluoride toothpaste once more.

Saving Your Teeth Without Fluoride: Which ‘Bad Sugars And Carbs’ To Get Rid Of Now

Along with all refined sugar drinks and food, I stopped using real maple syrup and uncooked unfiltered raw honey because they caused inflammation and cavities. I researched my options for a substitute sweetener. One was Continue reading “Saving Your Teeth Without Fluoride: Which ‘Bad Sugars And Carbs’ To Get Rid Of Now”

‘Automatically Maintaining’ Weight Loss Without Counting Calories

What’s next after you trim down? I didn’t realize I would become more sensitive to how food affected me. My wife was intuitive about that she should eat ‘broccoli’ every day.

I realized I needed to eat more of something too. It was ‘kale’. You will ‘sense’ what you need to eat more of after eating plant-based whole food a while. You become increasingly ‘sensitive’ to what you should and shouldn’t eat.

“My weight is automatically maintained at what I weighed in high school. How? I ‘stick to’ a plant-based whole food diet. Why? It is low protein, high carbohydrate and low fat. This is our most natural diet” ~ your author

I observed eating brown rice with soy milk with honey at night caused me acid reflux. It wasn’t super painful, but I knew something was wrong. It was the honey. Honey is acid. Rice also is, but when I eat rice with soy milk and no sweetener like honey, it doesn’t cause acid reflux. So, now I use stevia.

‘Stevia is a natural-origin sweetener that is increasing the options for reduced sugar and reduced energy foods and beverages. Stevia shows promise as a tool to help lower energy intakes, which may lead to the reduction and prevention of obesity [1 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4890837/]’.

Even though raw uncooked honey is natural, it is still acidic. Because of its acidity, it tends to also cause cavities.

High fructose corn syrup is the most ‘un-healthful’ sweetener of all. Your liver doesn’t know what to do with it. It can cause cardiovascular problems and you may develop the inflammatory nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

They put HFCS in almost everything it seems because it’s so cheap. Eat resistant starch foods like beans, rice and potatoes. These keep you satisfied for hours and you never have to count calories. If you get hungry later with that ‘sweet tooth’, try eating whole fruit.

Want To Help Save Your Teeth? What To Avoid Eating and Drinking Immediately

Through my own research I discovered early humans had very few cavities. This was probably before man learned to cultivate grain. Grain is acid as it is, but when gummy carbs stick to the teeth, bacteria pour out acids that begin eating them away. Continue reading “Want To Help Save Your Teeth?

Why Diet is as Important as Brushing your Teeth in Preventing Cavities

As one gets older, he thinks more about things like having teeth to eat with. We know the obvious things not to eat so we don’t get cavities, don’t we? It’s sugar. But, we knew that. What I didn’t used to know was other food causes cavities. What is this food? Continue reading “Why Diet is as Important as Brushing your Teeth in Preventing Cavities”
