Teeth Support Remedy
We all love a beautiful smile filled with pearly whites. But beyond the attractive feature, and assuming you never have to use them for self defense purposes, teeth are known for one main function, and that is to break up food in the process of chewing. Chewing, also called mastication, is considered mechanical digestion.
The teeth are classified into two parts, the crown (the part you see above the gums) and the root (the part you don't see below the gum line). The crown is made of hard enamel on the surface. Enamel is made up primarily of calcium salts and is the hardest substance in the body. The bulk of the tooth is composed of dentin. Dentin is a substance below the enamel. It is like bone, but harder. Dentin surrounds and protects the pulp cavity which contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue (pulp). The root canals are vessels that carry blood to the pulp cavity.
The neck of the tooth is where the crown and the root meet. This area is covered by the gingiva (gums). Teeth are most commonly lost because of unhealthy gingiva or infection in the pulp (endodontitis). The root is enclosed by a thin layer of bonelike material called cementum, which is surrounded by the periodontal ligament. This is what lines the alveolar process or the bone socket in the jaw. The ligament is made of thick collagen fibers which firmly attach the tooth in the socket.
NOTE: Teeth reveal two very important things inside your body. The first is the overall health of the bones; think of teeth as the visible portion of your bones. As a rule of thumb, if you have good hard teeth that are strong and healthy, your bones are healthy. If you start to have problems like weakness, sensitivity, cracking, etc, you may need to support your bones with a Vitamin D3 supplement. In addition, each tooth represents the overall health of a corresponding organ, gland or group of functions. Issues with your teeth mean you have not cared for your body well and the particular tooth that now aches or is infected or cracked tells you something about its corresponding organ. I have treated many cases where by balancing the part of the body referred by that tooth, the tooth issues disappear. The full chart of what each tooth reveals can be found in Book 03.
- If you build plaque on your teeth quickly, consider some oral chelation (not EDTA) because it may mean you are building plaque in your arteries.
- When a tooth is pulled, most dentists do not remove the ligament (apex tip) and this is where the majority of the bacteria live. If the area is not cleaned properly during extraction, infection will continue to seep into the body for decades even if the tooth has been removed.
- The number one cause of crooked teeth is consumption of refined sugar, which causes mineral imbalance, according to the research of Dr. Bernard Jensen.
- Dental cavities (tooth decay), are caused by deficiency of minerals, imbalance of bacteria in the mouth, and consumption of refined or simple carbohydrates, not lack of brushing. However, I am not discouraging the brushing of your teeth in any way. But if you want to avoid cavities, place more effort into healthy intestinal flora, avoid simple carbs, keep saliva pH around 7 and keep your mineral levels balanced. Cod liver oil contains nutrients that reduce cavities by 40%. Click here for more details.
- One of the absolute best things to brush the teeth with is soap, not toothpaste, because it leaves the mouth alkaline and the bacteria that cause cavities do not grow in an alkaline mouth. The second best option to brush with would be baking soda. DO NOT use toothpaste with fluoride of any kind in it, ever!
- Gingivitis (swelling or reddening of the gums) is a sign that the body is too acidic. You may take your first morning saliva pH to confirm this. To prevent and correct gingival issues, begin an alkaline diet and monitor your pH levels. In addition to working on alkalinity, reports have shown that the gums can be reconnected to the teeth by taking a Vitamin C and Baking Soda solution. Mix one-half teaspoon of ascorbic acid Vitamin C with one-half teaspoon of Arm and Hammer baking soda (aluminum free) in a cup with one inch of water. Let it fizz and then fill the rest of the cup with water and drink that each day. The resulting sodium ascorbate is non-acid, very pure and a thousand times more soluble than vitamin C. Sodium ascorbate is more active than ascorbic acid (C) in building connective tissue and antibody structures and more effective in killing some viruses and bacteria. Receding gums and plaque are ended when soap is used for brushing and vitamin C is taken daily.
- Periodontal disease, follow the same principles outlined for Gingivitis, but you may also want to begin rubbing liquid cayenne pepper mixed with liquid black walnut into the gums. This will act as a disinfectant to loose tissue and bring extra circulation to begin tightening and healing the gum tissues.
- WARNING! Never, ever get a root canal. They are absolute breeding grounds for infection. Have any tooth that requires a root canal pulled to avoid complicated health issues down the road. Please refer to the book Root Canal Cover-Up, by George E. Meinig if you require more information.
Suggestions To Strengthen

DENTAL CARE: Obviously, filling teeth with amalgum fillings puts mercury poison in the body. So that is never a consideration. When looking at alternative dental care, the mouth is very important and should not be neglected. Letting plaque and cavities go unchecked cause a much higher health risk. Biomimetic dentistry offers excellent alternatives to large fillings and crowns, such as inlays, onlays and crowns made by CEREC® material. These are permanent restorations that do not need to be replaced with time like regular resin fillings and metal or porcelain crowns. Ozone can be used in combination with air abrasion. Ozone kills bacteria and safely changes the chemistry of the tooth and allows it to remineralize. Try to find a dentist with these techniques for the best dental care. More info here >>
