Healing cavities naturally
The world is slowly recognizing the fact that when we substitute our food habits with the things that our body really wants, we can heal a lot of things which we otherwise thought were impossible. Dental cavities are a fine example of that. There was a time when the world assumed dental cavities can never be healed. But extensive research has now brought forth the real reasons for tooth decay and now it has been established that with proper medication, it can be completely cured.
The myth about tooth decay
According to the American Dental Association, we have tooth decay due to the following reasons:
“[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.”
We believe this theory to be true, but exactly how true is it? Let us look at a few things:
- Our ancients, who had carbohydrates stuck to their teeth and did not brush or floss their teeth so often, were perhaps completely free from tooth decay.
- Bacteria never consume flour or processed sugar because sugar lacks nutrients.
- Bacteria merrily eats vegetables, fruits, fish, meat, however none of them are prominent causes of tooth decay.
Is the modern theory of tooth decay really accurate? If not, what’s the real cause of tooth decay then?
