Can Raw Foods DESTROY Your Teeth? by Frederic Patenaude

Can Raw Foods DESTROY Your Teeth? by Frederic Patenaude
You know all of the health benefits of eating fruits and vegetables, but did you know that eating only raw foods could potentially put your teeth at risk?

That’s according to a study that showed that a raw food diet increases risk of dental erosion compared to a conventional diet.

How does raw food affect your teeth, and what can you do to protect them?

What the Study Showed

Researchers from Germany studied 130 subjects whose diet consisted of more than 95 percent raw food. The median duration of the diet was 39 months, with a minimum of 17 months, and a maximum of 418 months.

These participants answered questionnaires recording their food intake during a 7-day period before starting the study.

Researchers then randomly selected 76 gender- and age-matched participants for use as a control group. Using study models, they then registered tooth decay in both groups.

Their findings? Compared to the control group, subjects living on a raw food diet had significantly more tooth decay. 60.5 percent of the raw food eaters had at least one tooth with a severe decay, versus 31.6 percent of the control group.

Why Did This Happen?

Researchers aren’t sure why. They noted that within the raw food group, they could find no significant correlation between nutrition or oral health data. Nevertheless, the results showed that raw food eaters were more at risk.

One thing to note is the high amount of fruit eaten by the raw foodists. The raw food diet records showed that people in the raw food group ate an average of 9.5 kg (21 pounds) of fruit per week. (The maximum amount consumed for one person was 23.7 kg (52 pounds!), which is a lot of fruit!)

It’s no secret that although fruit has many health benefits, it can also be high in sugar and acidity, which is a double whammy for teeth.

The British Dental Association (BDA) has advised that the safest approach when eating apples is to eat them only at mealtimes, (and then rinse out the mouth to minimize tooth damage).

Added to that is the fact that the sugar content of apples (and likely other fruits) has increased by up to 50 percent over the last couple decades, as farmers breed varieties to have a sweeter taste.

New research by the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that the typical modern apple now has a sugar content of up to 15 percent. This means it contains the equivalent of four teaspoons of sugar.

A BDA spokesperson noted that once enamel is worn away, it doesn’t regenerate.

“Research shows that dental erosion in adults due to diet is usually a result of excessive consumption of fruits and fruit juices.”

Other Potential Causes

The aforementioned research is only one study.

It had a relatively small number of participants.

However, it brings up an important concern. Can a raw food diet be stressful for your teeth?

It’s safe to say that if your diet contains a lot of fruit, your teeth can be at risk. Beyond that, we need more research to discover the answers.

Some raw foodists who have experienced teeth problems after switching to raw have some additional theories.

Eating more often may be part of the issue. Once switching to a raw diet, you may find yourself grazing. Even if you’re snacking on healthy foods, frequent eating can disrupt the natural remineralization of your tooth enamel. Typically after you eat, your saliva goes to work rebuilding enamel.

However, if your saliva is constantly breaking down more food, and if that food is more sugary and acidic, your tooth enamel is more likely to suffer.

Another possibility is that due to the increased intake of nuts, dried fruit, and dehydrated foods food more easily becomes lodged between teeth where it is hard to remove. The longer food debris stays stuck on or between teeth, the easier for bacteria to attack.

How to Protect Your Teeth While Enjoying a Raw Food Diet (and Fruits!)

The answer, fortunately, is not to stop eating fruits or nuts or other great raw foods. The answer is to consider changing how you take care of your teeth in between meals and snacks.

One thing to be careful of—brushing right after eating an acidic food is actually worse for your teeth than doing nothing at all. Acid breaks down enamel, leaving your teeth vulnerable. Enamel softened by an acid attack can be scrubbed away by the toothbrush.

Why Raw Foodists Have Bad Teeth by Frederic Patenaude

Why Raw Foodists Have Bad Teeth by Frederic Patenaude
For years, I’ve been warning raw vegans, Paleo enthusiasts, juicing fans, fruit eaters, smoothie addicts and vegans to take care of their teeth.

What I have observed is:
* I high incidence of dental decay among raw foodists, 1-2 years after they switch to the diet

* A high incidence of gum recession and enamel erosion among raw foodists (this does not mean 100% raw. Anyone who eats a lot of fruit or drinks fresh juices or smoothies should care.)

Dramatic dental problems in people who stick religiously to certain diet principles without questioning them.
In my early days, I’ve had my share of dental problems myself as a direct result of following the raw diet incorrectly. I have also met at least several hundred people who have gone through similar issues.

I’ve been talking about this for a number of years now, and I’m glad that people are finally listening!

This is truly the “weak link” of the raw diet, and it applies to anyone eating a healthy diet!

There are a lot of positive aspects to eating more raw foods.

But… a person can experience many wonderful benefits while changing their diet, and watch with horror as their dental health goes downhill.

And it’s not just raw vegans… vegetarians also must watch out. In fact, anyone who eats healthier!
We know that raw foods contain more acidity. But healthy eaters also consume more cooked vegetables, and acidity can be increased in those vegetables when you roast them.

Peta Bee writes in the Daily Mail:

“Dentists at the University of Dundee found that different cooking methods could increase the acidity of vegetarian dishes, such as roasted vegetables. Exposure to high temperatures produced chemical changes that made the acid more concentrated, and more damaging to teeth. In particular, the acidity level of zucchini, peppers, onions and eggplants increased when roasted.”

So what’s going on here?

The Two Culprits

At this point, if you have the least interest in eating a healthier diet, you should start reading very, very closely.

Dental decay is not caused by eating the wrong diet.

Dental decay is the result of the proliferation of certain types of bacteria in the oral environment. The bacteria eliminate acid waste that eat into your teeth and cause decay.

It’s all about the terrain!

If your oral terrain (the environment) is healthy, you could eat Cheetos and drink Coke all day, and you wouldn’t even get cavities.

When people change their diet, they become a dental health time-bomb. Their bacteria count is a little too high, but not high enough to cause major problems.

Suddenly, they start eating more often, because they eat foods that are not as dense in calories. They drink juices. They drink smoothies. They eat a lot of fruit.

This acid and sugar create a giant feast for the bacteria which feed on them.

The real culprits are the bacteria. But the terrain is determined by:

– Acidity
– Sugar

It’s not all about the food you eat! If you can control the level of acidity in your mouth, you can eat foods that contain acids and sugar, and you’ll be fine.

But, if your oral terrain is not under control, you’ll never be able to eradicate dental problems for life.

You want your bacteria count to be as low as possible.

You want to avoid bacteria forming into colonies and creating their little civilization in your mouth!

If your oral environment is clean… and ALKALINE… it doesn’t matter if you eat dates or raisins all day.

The Only Solution

The only way to prevent dental decay for life and reverse a bad situation is to take active control of your oral environment. Just controlling your diet does not address the root of the problem.

You can create a simple, daily dental hygiene routine that will prevent 95% of problems.

And then, you can do simple things with your diet to control the remaining 5%, like avoiding snacking and being careful with the amount of acid foods you consume.

Stop Cavities Dead in Their Tracks! by Frederic Patenaude

Stop Cavities Dead in Their Tracks! by Frederic Patenaude
I’ve heard different versions of the same story over and over again.

A sort of dental “disaster” story.

It happens to people who change their diet for raw foods, vegan, Paleo, etc. But it also happens to different people at various points in their lives.

It goes like this:

“I never had any problems with my teeth except a few cavities when I was a kid. Suddenly I got a bunch of cavities at once! And over the next few years: gum recession, sensitivity to cold/hot foods, enamel erosion, you name it!”

Or someone has “perfect” teeth for a while, but after months of gnawing teeth pain that gets worse, they see a dentist, only to discover that they have seven cavities, receded gums, chipping enamel, and all sorts of discoloration on their teeth.

Different details for different people, but it’s the same story over and over.

Sometimes the diet is to blame; sometimes it’s not.

It’s not that raw foods are “bad for your teeth”.

It’s just that raw foods are alive and filled with acids and natural sugar, which cariogenic bacteria love. It’s their fuel.

Cariogenic = cavity-causing. Not what we want thriving in our mouth.

To avoid and reverse those problems, it all just comes down to restoring the alkaline balance and leaving your body’s natural abilities to regulate and work their magic.

If your mouth PH is alkaline and there aren’t much cavity-causing bacteria to cause problems, you can be eating sugar all day and your pearly whites will be just fine.

Can you reverse cavities without needing filling?

In many cases, the answer is yes!

It happened to me, as it happened to many others.

In fact, a recent study was published in an Australian dentistry journal in December 2015. They showed that 50% of dental fillings were unnecessary because many dental decay cases do not require them.

They wrote:
“A tooth should be only be drilled and filled where an actual hole-in-the-tooth (cavity) is already evident.”

When you learn how to create a healthy state in your mouth, miracles can happen.

Cavities can be stopped dead in their tracks. You’ll avoid some of the worst consequences of dental problems. Your body can heal itself — so can your teeth!

Of course, dental repairs are sometimes necessary. But why not deal with the ROOT of the problem and put your mouth in an alkaline state, with the right mineral balance — where your teeth can start getting stronger, your gums healthier, and only then do the repairs that are needed?

Don’t give up your health independence and rely on dentists to take care of your teeth! Do it yourself and you’ll have healthy, clean, beautiful teeth for a lifetime.

We’re excited about the second edition of the program “How to Heal and Prevent Dental Disasters.”

Check it out here.

In it, you will discover:

What you can do for your teeth if you already have decay above or below the gumline, pain, bleeding or loose teeth…

Winter is Coming – How to Beat the Winter Blues by Frederic Patenaude

Looking for some great holiday gifts for yourself, your family, friends and co-workers to get and stay healthy, as that is most important. Then check out the deals on products from Frederic and Renegade Health below. The offers/discounts can change at any time, so don’t delay!

Winter is Coming – How to Beat the Winter Blues by Frederic Patenaude

Don’t be caught off-guard this time. Have you started the most obvious cure for the winter blues there is?

Let this email be a warning!

At this time of the year in Northern latitudes, the days are shortening by three minutes a day. But even in Los Angeles the days are shortening by two minutes a day.

When November comes, many people are deep into the “winter blues” without realizing what happened. I’m talking about seasonal affective disorder or SAD.

By December, things get pretty dire rather quickly, with sunset before 5 p.m and days getting even shorter every day.

A slight bout of winter blues means that you’ll feel less energetic, have trouble getting up or staying asleep, and feel not as zesty as usual. Other warning signs include getting up too early and having trouble falling asleep.

If you don’t do anything about it, these symptoms can turn into a full-blown depression.

So let me share with you what to do about it. Because starting the cure early is key!

1) Light Therapy
This simple treatment is your first line of defense. It works! But the key thing is starting early (in September, but now will work if you haven’t started yet), and to do it every day for 30-60 minutes.

I’ve been blasting my eyes with light in the morning since early September, and I will keep this up every single day of the winter, even while traveling. I already feel the benefits compared to years when I didn’t do it.

If you think you tend to have any symptoms of SAD, even slight ones, I highly recommend that you give this a try. But make sure that you:

1) Don’t skimp on quality. Get a good light. After researching this extensively, I decided to purchase the Day-Light Sky Lamp. I’ve been very happy with this lamp, and I also use it on the low setting as a regular source of light.

2) Also get a travel lamp. You don’t want to stop the light therapy when you’re traveling — even if you’re going South. Light therapy only works if you’re doing it every day, and you never know how much sunshine you’re going to get on vacation. Plus, the travel light is very useful for overcoming jet lag by resetting your inner clock to the new time zone. I use it all the time. I recommend this lamp: Brand name- Sphere

The easiest way to use Light Therapy is to do it first thing in the morning while having breakfast, reading your emails, reading the newspaper, having tea or coffee or a smoothie. You have to be fairly close to the light without looking at it.

Start now!

Two Other Ways to Beat the Winter Blues
Here are two more ways to help you beat the winter blues. But you’ll never hear them discussed in the media. These methods work even faster, and the results are more permanent! Note: you must do this in addition to light therapy.

1) Fasting

Fasting (on water) stimulates the production of natural endorphins. At the end of a day of fasting, you naturally feel more alive, energetic, and more importantly: mood significantly improves.

In the winter, I fast one day per week for 20 to 36 hours.

Also, I think our bodies are naturally designed to get fewer calories in the winter, because this has been a time of semi-starvation, in our long evolution as a species.

During the winter, our bodies go through several physiological changes. That is why many people gain weight and feel less energetic.From an evolutionary perspective, it makes sense because it helped us in the past conserve energy.

The problem in our modern world is that “winter never comes.” We experience the cold, but not the starvation. So we pack on the pounds and feel depressed.

One way to overcome this is to fast one day per week. That way, your body will think that “winter is coming” and will react appropriately. Your mood will significantly improve, and you’ll avoid the fat gain that most experience during the winter.

(Note that some people shouldn’t fast, due to health concerns. In this case, you can try a day of eating fruit, smoothies, or juices).

2) A High-Raw Diet

A high-raw diet is a great tool to improve mood and energy levels. Most people think of doing this during the summer, but the winter is a great time to eat more raw!

Again, this refers to the “winter hypothesis.”

A raw diet is naturally less caloric dense but contains more nutrients.

Your body will react by burning fat and producing endorphins — feel-good hormones.

You don’t even have to eat 100% raw to experience the results. Just 50 to 80% raw will do it!

When you combine light therapy, fasting and a raw diet, you have a powerful combo to ward off winter blues or even depression.

Food Combining Simplified by Frederic Patenaude

Looking for some great holiday gifts for yourself, your family, friends and co-workers to get and stay healthy, as that is most important. Then check out the deals on products from Frederic and Renegade Health below. The offers/discounts can change at any time, so don’t delay!

Food Combining Simplified by Frederic Patenaude
Whenever I throw celery in a fruit smoothie, or add oranges in a salad, some people ask me “But wait… isn’t that against food combining rules?”

So let’s talk about food combining.

Dr. Herbert Shelton is responsible for most food combining theories. In his book, “Food Combining Made Easy,” he describes his food combining rules based on his experience serving meals to very sick patients at his fasting clinic. Many of his rules have been misinterpreted since. And for the remainder, he rarely gave any explanation, other than his personal experience.

There are no real “rules” of food combining. You must simply pay attention to your digestion.

Instead, here are a few principles that tend to improve digestion in most people:

#1 Don’t Combine Sugar and Fat (in large quantities)

The main combination to avoid is sugar and fat. Sugar being any type of sugar such as fruits, dates, refined sugar, or anything sweet. Fat includes oils, avocados, nuts, and any other type of fatty foods.

The reason is that fat takes a longer time to digest, while sugar tends to digest quickly. When the two are mixed together in sufficient quantities, the sugar will ferment. Say hello to gas and bloating!

So the combinations to avoid include: dates and nuts, nuts and dried fruits, adding fat to fruit smoothies (including oils, nuts, etc.), and obviously eating fruit or sweets at the end of a meal containing fat.

However, the main thing to remember is that QUANTITY is everything.

If you have a few almonds mixed with raisins, you’ll be fine. But if you eat the entire bag, you’re asking for trouble.

Same with fruit in salads: it’s perfectly okay to add some acidic fruits to a salad, like berries or citrus, even if that salad contains avocados. But don’t go pouring half the bottle of olive oil on top of it!

#2: Avoid Sugar and Starch

This is the combination of cooked starch and sugar, so this one obviously doesn’t apply to a raw food meal. Starch includes bread, potatoes, pasta, etc.

This combinations can lead to a lot of gas and fermentation. Examples include: raisin bread, all pastries, all cakes, all cookies, etc.

But again, quantity is everything.

Unnecessary Rules

There are several “rules” of food combining that are really unnecessary. Let me give you a few:

Melons – There’s no reason to avoid eating melons with other fruits. You can mix melons with any other fruit you want, without any problems. Even Shelton said so.

Fruits – Fruits may be combined with each other without problems. There’s no need to only eat fruits of certain categories together.

Tomatoes – Although we eat tomatoes as a vegetable, it is a fruit in reality so it may be combined with other fruits if desired.

Greens Don’t Count – Greens such as lettuce, celery, spinach, and other green leaves, don’t even count in food combining. The reason is that they combine well with anything. They combine well with fruit as well as with any other food.

Simplify Combos

The whole idea about food combining is to simplify meals. It means that a meal with five ingredients will digest more easily than a meal with ten. And a meal with two ingredients will be easier to digest than a meal with five.

It’s more important to vary our diet from meal to meal, rather than get all that variety in one meal!

As you learn more about food combining and a simple and easy raw food diet, you’ll find that it’s really the best way to stay healthy with a “silent” digestion, and best of all, it’s also so enjoyable to eat that way!

More Dangerous Than Processed Foods by Frederic Patenaude

More Dangerous Than Processed Foods by Frederic Patenaude

I used to think that eating processed foods was the worst possible thing you could do to your body.

I still think it’s in the top three, but after spending a lot of time over the last few years with some really sharp clinical practitioners, I’ve learned a few things about truly one of the worst things you can do to the body.

How can you prevent burnout as well as help you adrenals rebuild if you’re trashed them with stress, stimulants or nutritional deficiencies.

The Worst Thing You Can Do to Your Body?

One of the worst things that you can do to your body besides the obvious – drugs, eating junk food, excess sugar, etc – is putting it through emotional and environmental stress.

I know, you’ve heard me talk about the dangers of stress before, but let me get into a little more detail.

It’s not the actual stress that wrecks your health, it’s the chemical changes it causes in your body.

This is why it is possibly one of the worst things you can subject your body to.

As you know, stress can come from various sources…

Your thoughts
Your job
Your relationships
Over exercise
Excess sugar
Use of stimulants (coffee, teas, cacao, drugs)
These six things (and more) all can increase the amount of cortisol in the body.

Excess cortisol can interfere with a bunch of different processes causing poor health.

First is immunity.

If you have too much cortisol, you suppress immune function by suppressing the activity of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. This prevents the release of neurotransmitters that help immune function.

So basically, all you’ve heard about stress being related to illness is dead on.

If you’re stressed out, you’re going to get sick.

Second is how your metabolism is regulated and what you crave.

When you have too much stress, you can crave salty or fatty foods, or refined sugar.

Cravings of these foods are very real.

Many times, when you fix the adrenals and eliminate the stress, you can get rid of some of the physiological cravings – the emotional ones require a different set of skills to eliminate!

Third are cardiovascular issues.

Poor adrenal function leads to changes in how your body regulates heart rate and blood pressure.

Inability to regular your cardiovascular system can lead to poor circulation, high or low blood pressure and all diseases related to these issues, particularly hypertension.

Fourth is thinner skin and weaker bones.

Excess cortisol is directly related to thinner skin and weaker bones.

Weaker bones are related to the inability of hormones to regular body processes as well as the excess acidity that is created in the body when excess cortisol is present.

Managing stress and making sure you have plenty of minerals and vitamin D is a much better strategy than drugs for those who have symptoms or signs of osteoporosis.

I hope that helps you understand why you need to take care of your adrenals.

I know from experience what it’s like to have adrenal fatigue and it’s not anything I’d wish on anyone.

The best thing to do is take preventative steps to make sure it doesn’t happen to you, instead of waiting until you’ve damaged your adrenals and then struggle to fix them.

I created my own business in San Diego called World Peace Kitchen and have been cooking/uncooking and teaching the public for the past 15 years. Now my new venture is called, The Rawsome Vegan Gal, based on my youtube channel name.

I am a whole food/natural foods plant based chef specializing in macrobiotic/vegan and raw vegan cuisine. The food is prepared in what I call “healing gourmet” style that is both nutritious to the body and tantalizes the palate.

I have been vegan for 25 years and completed my studies in macrobiotics at the Kushi Institute in Becket, MA in 1993 and at the Vega Study Center in Oroville, CA in 1994.

I have been written up and interviewed for various publications, including The San Diego Union-Tribune, San Diego Reader, San Diego Jewish Journal, Beach and Bay Press, Awareness Magazine, Vision Magazine, Bnai Brith Magazine, on the radio program, “Brunch with Jack” and appeared on KUSI News.

I have taught classes at School of Healing Arts, PCOM, Daillard Elementary, Sunrise of La Jolla, University City Senior Center, Clairemont Friendship Center, Whole Foods Hillcrest, Rancho’s Natural Foods, Mueller College, OB People’s Food Co-op, Pacific Beach/Taylor Branch Library, Clairemont Branch Library, Allied Gardens-Benjamin Branch Library, Balboa Branch Library and North Clairemont Branch Library.

I am available for both private and group cooking/raw vegan classes, workshops, presentations, consultations, detoxification programs, hands-on classes, coaching, weekly menu plan, kitchen assessment, private chef services in your home, food/meals for pickup, catering a lunch/small dinner party and teach you how to shop in a health food store. I also travel as a chef outside of my area.

I bring enthusiasm, excitement and energy to everything I do. My goal is to help empower others to find the ways to make their lives more whole, complete and fulfilling.
