I came across this article today, and I couldn't agree with it more. http://livefreelivenatural.com/heal-cavities-naturally/. Often when I speak at companies or to patients about the dangers of fluoride, the first thing that comes up is "what about my teeth?!" Take a deep breath. your teeth will be fine. Ever wonder why there was a warning on the back of your toothpaste that says "If swallowed contact a physician or seek medical advice immediately"? That's because fluoride is a neurotoxin. Don't swallow any toothpaste, but here drink it all day in your water. Bottom line is fluoride is harmful to your health. Now I am not going to go in to how it got in to your water to begin with. (corporate waste disposal) But I will tell you that there are a lot of places in the country that have kept it out of their water supply, and places that are trying to get in removed.
I was raised in a household that did not consume tap water, to this day i have never had a cavity. There are also many tribal groups of people who "teeth brushing" isn't part of their culture. Yet, they have better dental hygiene and less incidences of tooth decay than us because of their diets. More specifically fresh organic fruits and vegetables and the absence of processed foods. Their are also studies coming out that are linking fluoride consumption to thyroid problems. Hmmm, sound familiar? You would be hard pressed to find a female over 40 who isn't on synthroid or armour thyroid nowadays.
So what's the solution? Choose fluoride free toothpaste, consume a healthy organic diet, and make sure your water has been purified by reverse osmosis or is from some natural spring that you trust.
