7 Lies About Dental Health by Frederic Patenaude

Over the years, I’ve talked to hundreds of people who have experienced severe dental problems after changing their diet to a high-raw one. Even without a diet change, dental problems are very common and very costly.

After the age of 60, you can expect your dental costs to be at least what they’ve been up to that point in your life for your remaining years!

So if you’ve spent 20K on your teeth in your life up until 60, and you live another 25 years, you should expect to pay as a minimum another 20K over that period.

That’s on top of the pain, humiliation and disability that comes with bad teeth.

So let’s take a look at seven misconceptions regarding dental health that we should throw away once and for all.

#1. You should brush after every meal

Many people brush and floss after every meal and still end up with more decay and periodontal disease. This belief is rei nforced after every visit to the dentist when they hand your “gift”: a toothbrush and some floss.

What the research has shown is that brushing after every meal does not prevent dental problems. It’s the QUALITY of your brushing and cleaning that makes a difference.

You could brush only once a day or even once every few days. If this cleaning session is done correctly, that’s what will prevent and reverse dental disasters. (That being said, I don’t recommend waiting a few days, but some research shows that it works if the cleaning is thorough enough!)

#2. You always have to repairs cavities

Most dentist will want to drill your teeth at the first sign of decay. But recent research showed that it’s possible to stop cavities dead in their tracks if you catch them young enough.

Of course, drilling and repairing teeth is better than NOT doing anything.

But natural ly reversing a cavity is still the better way to go.

What you can do is ask your dentist when you absolutely have to repair the tooth. Usually, they’ll say that it’s okay to wait a few months but that you shouldn’t wait too long.

Then, use what you’ve learned in How to Heal and Prevent Dental Disasters to stop the cavity. When you go back, you might not have to do anything, as had happened to me ten years ago when I discovered this program!

#3. Sugar and carbohydrates are the cause

We think that sugar causes caries, but completely avoiding it is impossible. Even vegetables contain natural sugar, which the bacteria that cause dental disease LOVE just as much as artificial sugar.

In a previous ezine, I mentioned how the “primitive” Hawaiians ate a diet that was composed of 75-80% carbohydrates, including plenty of simple sugars. When Captain Cook discovered them in the late 18th century, they did not have any dental disease!

Sugar may be the fuel, but it’s not the cause of the disease. Remove the cause and the fuel won’t start a fire.

#4. Natural products work

Unfortunately, many people turn to natural solutions only to make their dental health worse. The health food stores are full of natural products that don’t work.

Tea tree oil is one such product. It has absolutely no proven benefits in reversing periodontal disease, yet it’s included in many natural kinds of toothpaste.

This is all marketing and only serves the companies that sell those products.

#5. Toothpaste is necessary

Whether you go the natural way or not, you’ll probably want to use some toothpaste. This is not a bad idea, depending on what you choose, but many brands contain ingredients that cause problems, such as Sodium Laureth Sulfate.

In reality, the abrasive ingredient in toothpaste (usually calcium carbonate) helps to remove stains and keep your teeth whiter. But that’s only cosmetic and won’t affect your dental health. Almost everything else in toothpaste is usually unnecessary!

#6. Flossing is critical

Recently we heard the news that flossing is one of the most unproven health recommendations ever made. No research has ever shown that flossing is effective. But it’s one of the most common dental health recommendations.

Don’t get me wrong: I think most people should at least floss. But for others, flossing won’t help. They’ll need to use something more effective instead.

#7. If you don’t brush your teeth you’ll have bad breath

You’ll often hear people say that they must have bad breath because they haven’t brushed their teeth in a while, like when traveling by plane.

In reality, bad breath is usually caused by a bad diet or periodontal disease — two things that brushing teeth can’t fix.

Like I said before, it’s not about how often you brush but how well you not only brush but follow a routine that works in preventing and reversing dental disasters.

So you could travel and not clean your teeth for nearly 24 hours, and you won’t have bad breath. Whereas someone else could brush all the time and still, have bad breath.

End Dental Problems for Life

Would you like a simple method to stop a lifetime of dental problems?

And, if you’ve experienced any dental issues, do you know what to do to heal your teeth?

Because of the increasing costs of dental care, and also the sorry state of dental health in the raw food, vegan, and alternative health world, I have created a program called How to Heal and Prevent Dental Disasters.

I’ve spent more than a decade researching this topic.

I’ve recently added the following bonuses:

– Exactly what routine to follow to heal your teeth, if you’ve experienced any dental problems.

– Two nutritional changes you can make that can save your teeth.

If you’d like to find out the exact method to reverse and prevent dental problems, make sure to get the new edition of the program “How to Heal and Prevent Dental Disasters.”

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…

Why the dental industry on purpose wants you to come back for more visits with new problems to “fix” every time.

What to do if you lose a filling, chip or lose a tooth, etc.
And much more. Go to:

Want to Learn More About Blood Testing?

I wanted to as well, so I contacted Dr. J. E. Williams and asked him to help me put together a program that could help you determine how to read your own blood tests and identify the optimal levels for healthy eaters.

It features 35 beautiful graphics that show you clinical, desirable and optimal ranges for blood tests and what to do if your levels are high or low.

Blood testing, if done correctly, can be your best ally in determining the right diet, the right supplements and the perfect health for you.

Toxic Trends In Everyday Beauty – From Green Lifestyles Network

Toxic Trends In Everyday Beauty

In the beauty industry the current trend is to look young and rejuvenated. Women and some men search high and low for the beauty products that “guarantee” youthful appearance. They buy hundreds of products that promise to prevent or reverse aging. What most people don’t know is that there is an average of thirty artificial chemical ingredients in beauty products. These artificially produced ingredients destroy immune systems within the body then affect the waterways in which they drain when we wash them off. Many people fall into the trap of trying to achieve their desired look while overlooking the consequences of the artificial and potentially toxic chemicals that they use.

Artificially manufactured chemicals in shampoos, for instance, can break down the body’s immune system and lead to cancer. Cheap or expensive, modern shampoos are usually a mixture of a handful of detergents, most of which are harmful to our skin. Coal tar, a popular ingredient in shampoos, is known to be effective in controlling and reducing dandruff. However, it is also known as a cancer-causing agent. Another ingredient in shampoo, ZPTO or zinc pyrithione, can cause severe allergic reactions, headaches, nausea, fatigue, nervousness and lack of concentration. Manufacturers do not acknowledge these side effects when selling the benefits of soft, bouncy hair to consumers.

Shampoo is not the only beauty product that has toxic chemicals. Deodorant is one of the most commonly used beauty products. However, most people do not know that deodorant contains aluminum, which when applied to the skin, becomes absorbed into the body. The aluminum in the body is known to cause dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Other popular beauty products are antibacterial soaps and hand sanitizers. Triclosan, an ingredient found in many of those soaps, has been found in the blood of wild dolphins, affecting their development negatively. Studies have also found that elevated blood levels of triclosan may lead to a depressed central nervous system and impaired thyroid function, as well as to hormone disruption.

Polyethelene glycol (PEG) is a common ingredient in facial cleansers. Frighteningly, this ingredient can also be found in oven cleaners. The ingredient is added to dissolve the oil and grease on our skin. When a chemical dissolves a substance on our bodies, it is more than likely damaging our external skin and our internal bodies. Polyethylene glycol is also used as a thickener to produce a creamy consistency in creams, lotions, and soaps. The ingredient deteriorates our immune system at a slow pace, taking away our skin’s natural moisture, and is potentially carcinogenic.

Another ingredient that is found in many facial cleaners and exfoliates are tiny plastic beads. Often found in cleansing scrubs for their abrasive effect on the face and body, they are listed in the ingredient list as polyethylene. Seemingly harmless, these bits, which are less than one millimeter in diameter, wash down the drain and eventually flow into our oceans. The beads fall to the ocean floor or are swallowed by aquatic animals. They will never biodegrade. An easy solution for consumers is to choose scrubs that contain sugar, apricot, nuts or other natural abrasives, that do not damage the waterways or leave permanent manmade footprints in nature.

Propylene glycol (PG) is found in hair care products, cosmetics, after-shave, deodorants, mouthwashes, and toothpaste. It is also used in processing our food and is the active ingredient in anti-freeze. Industrial workers handling this product have to wear gloves and even eye protection because of its toxicity to the skin. It also has to be disposed of at hazardous waste sites. We use this ingredient, however, in extreme concentrations in daily products for our skin and even in our mouths.


So what do we here at recommend? Most women don’t know that the same ingredients in the 200-dollar bottle of “elixir of life” can be found in their very own back yard or local market. Sugar and honey is a great facial. The ingredients are natural and healing. Many women look for products that promise to rejuvenate the skin and lift bags under their eyes. Instead of using toxic chemicals that dissolve oil, using lemon and cucumbers work just as well. Cucumbers lift bags under the eyes and lemon juice lightens the skin, especially dark unwanted scars.

Shampoo originates from the Hindi word champoo. However, in India most of the population do not use manufactured shampoos, but create original shampoos using natural ingredients. For example, the powder of neem (soap nuts) is mixed with eggs, almonds, curds, buttermilk and honey. The ingredients are ground together to make a paste that works wonderfully to nourish and strengthen the hair without stripping it of its natural oils.

Return to older practices and find organic alternatives for shampoos, soaps and more, to heal the body. Instead of washing toxic chemicals down our drains when using synthetic shampoos, soaps, toothpastes, and facial cleaners, it would be eco-friendly, health producing, and logical to use natural products that are better for our bodies, for the earth, and for its oceans. If we band together and choose natural ingredients over toxic chemicals and manufactured ingredients, we can make a positive impact on our earth, our waterways, and our bodies, all at once. We can do it!
