Can Cavities Be Reversed?
by Erin Otto
You were told, just like I was, that the only remedy for cavities is to fill them with amalgam, or if you went to an up-and-coming dentist, maybe you were given the option to fill them with composite.
But fill them you must, because we all know the human body is not capable of healing dental cavities as it does other body parts like broken bones. Right?
Basic stuff that everybody knows, isn’t it?
But there’s more to the story. (Our modern western diet is obstructing the view.)
A researcher in the 1930s, who was also a dentist, suspected that tooth decay and even crowded, crooked teeth had more to do with a lack of nutrients in the modern diet, than the frequency of tooth brushing and flossing.
So the determined Weston A. Price set out on a 10 year study of primitive people groups all around the world that were still eating traditional, primitive foods as the mainstay of their diets. Wherever he found isolated people groups eating their traditional diets, the people had uncrowded teeth that were almost entirely free of decay.
But wherever these same tribes had adopted the western diet, they suffered horribly from disease, crowded and crooked teeth, and much tooth decay.
A Lunch Program For Children That Stopped Cavities
The native people Dr. Price studied had been eating their traditional foods their entire lives, and so had their parents and so on down the line. But what if school children who already had tooth decay were to start eating some really nutrient dense foods? Would it be possible to stop their tooth decay? Could the teeth remineralize?
Once he returned to his home in Ohio, Dr. Price started a lunch program for children who already had pretty bad tooth decay. And no wonder. These kids were eating highly sweetened coffee, pancakes made with white flour and covered with processed syrup, doughnuts, vegetable oils, and white bread.
And for the record, the children continued to eat this way at home.
Meanwhile, for one meal of the day, six days a week, Weston Price provided these kids a nutrient dense lunch based on the foods he had observed native people eating in other parts of the world. They got a rich vegetable and meat stew made with bone broth, raw whole milk, and rolls made with freshly ground wheat and spread with deep yellow butter. For dessert, they were given cooked fruit with very little sweetener.
Although this was a major improvement from what these kids were eating at home, Dr. Price knew it would not have been enough to stop the cavities in their teeth.
Two More Special Additions That Made The Difference
One important thing Weston Price discovered when he analyzed samples of the foods the native people ate was that they contained at least ten times more fat soluble activators than what is present in the average American diet. The fat soluble activators are vitamins A, D, and K2, and according to Dr. Price are needed by our bodies in order to absorb the minerals in our diet. So much so that without these activators, our bodies are unable to use minerals that give us good sound bone structures and healthy, cavity-free teeth – even if minerals are plentiful in the diet.
Both cod liver oil and deep yellow butter are rich in these fat soluble activators, so Dr. Price gave each child half a teaspoon of each along with their nutrient-dense lunch.
The children’s teeth were checked every 4-6 weeks for a period of about five months. Within this amount of time, each child’s cavities were completely stopped and began to heal right underneath the temporary fillings that had been placed to stop the pain. Here is one of the before and “during” x-rays Dr. Price took of one of these children. It has been labeled by the Price-Pottenger Foundation.
