There is a common belief today about cavities that once you have tooth decay, that cavity can NOT be reversed. Then the only solution to oral wellness is to have part of your tooth drilled out and filled with a synthetic material.
But according to a study published in the British Medical Journal, cavities and tooth decay could potentially be reversed with diet.
A study was performed on 62 children with cavities, and they were divided into three different diet groups. Group 1 ate a standard diet plus oatmeal (rich in phytic acid). Group 2 consumed a normal diet and supplemented with vitamin D. Group 3 ate a grain-free diet and took vitamin D.
The results found that group 1 who had a diet high in grains and phytic acid had an increase in cavities. Group 2 had improvements in cavities and less form. Group 3 who followed a grain-free diet with nutrient-rich foods like vegetables, fruits, meat, milk and took vitamin D saw the greatest improvements in which nearly all cavities were healed.
This study along with the backing of many doctors and dentists is proving we have been misinformed about what causes cavities and how to reverse cavities naturally.
Dentist Ramiel Nagel who authored the book Cure Tooth Decay has helped many of his patients “reverse” their tooth decay and would rather not put in fillings. He believes that you can prevent cavities with nutrient-rich foods.
In this article, I am going to go over the causes of tooth decay and how it may be prevented and in many cases even reversed.
