Tooth decay is a lack of nutrients, not a lack of toxic fluoride, which is essentially an industrial waste product. Here we list the natural ways to keep your teeth healthy.
We can cure cavities simply by eating the nutrients that our teeth and bones need, not by filing them with foreign entities and toxic heavy metals.

There is a simple truth to the way the body works, it is a carefully designed system and mother nature has provided us with the answers for many years, but alas, is something that many of us have lost site of: When you give the body what it needs, it can heal itself naturally.
As we see throughout the modern day, industry-led world of health, the dental industry is focused on financial profits and repeated custom. A fine example of what is often deemed as an incurable health problem and therefore requires unnatural intervention, is dental cavities.
Extensive research that was made public in 2014, is still largely overlooked today is, what is the true nature of tooth decay and what really causes it
According to the American Dental Association, the reason we have tooth decay is as follows:
“[Tooth decay] 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.”
The problem with this theory is that Bacteria does not consume processed sugars, or flour, because of the lack of nutrients, there is simply less to feed off. Whereas foods that bacteria does like, such as milk, vegetables, meat, fish and fruit, are not commonly implicated in the causes of tooth decay, as according to the overall dentistry line of thinking.
So What actually causes tooth decay?
Tooth decay, as researched by Dr. Weston Price and other dental pioneers, was actually found to be, yes down to eating sugars and processed foods, that part is correct, but it’s the effect this has on your overall health and how the body reacts to this lack of nutrient rich foods that is the real answer to why people’s teeth are degrading.
The modern diet simply lacks so much in terms of natural minerals that the body begins to draw from all resources.
There is simply not enough minerals in the modern diet
Not enough fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) in the diet, means nutrients not being readily ‘bioavailable’ and the presence of phytic acid, alongside the other factor that your intestinal system is so clogged up, it is not properly absorbing these essential nutrients.
Much research has highlighted the gut brain and the role of the intestines in our overall health, please see here for more on the influence of our “gut brain”.
Over a period of time, if you lack vitamins and minerals from a poor diet and are also consuming high levels of phytates (from grains, seeds, nuts, and legumes), the blood chemistry and the ratio of calcium and phosphorous becomes out of balance, which results in minerals actually being pulled from your bones and teeth, causing tooth and bone loss.
So, the long-standing belief that sugar causes tooth decay is true, not because bacteria eat it and produce acid that ruins your teeth, but as a result of it depleting nutrients from the body.
A note on Calcium supplements: These can actually be very harmful if it is the wrong type of calcium. Only take supplements with Calcium Orotate, as the other types of Calcium will cause Calcification all over the body and lead to Osteoporosis, as well as tooth decay and other health problems.
The food remedies that can heal cavities and tooth decay
In order to restore the ratio of calcium and phosphorus in our blood, and to enable minerals to bond to our teeth, it is not enough to just avoid eating too many sweet or processed foods. We must also eat health-building foods, containing copious amounts of minerals and vitamins that will build a glassy hard tooth structure.
Foods to focus on are:
- Coconut oil, grass-fed organic dairy (especially butter), grass-fed meats, seafood and bone broths.
- Organic cooked vegetables (soups with bone broth are ideal).
- Organ and gland meats, like liver.
Limit foods that are high in phytic acid, like grains, beans, nuts and seeds, as well as limiting processed food intake full of processed flours and sugars that upset blood sugar balance.
Supplements to consider are:
- Fermented cod liver oil – very high in fat soluble vitamins A, D and K.
- Magnesium – required to use calcium and phosphorous effectively.
- Gelatin – if you don’t have time to make bone broth, this is a good alternative and is great for gums and digestion.

Coconut oil is a really good replacement for harmful toothpaste. It has many healing properties and can heal tooth cavities.
