Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, doctor of natural
medicine, and founder of draxe.com. In this video, I’m going to do an advanced
training on how to reverse cavities and how to heal tooth decay. I’ll talk about the best diet, talk about
supplements, as well as natural treatments for fighting cavities and tooth decay. And I’m going to tell you, this could make
a huge difference in your health or your family’s health if you want to save some money and
really help have incredible oral health. And I want to say, there are obviously, different,
varying types of cavities in terms of how severe they are. I know this will work with both mild and moderate
cavities. If you have a very, very severe cavity, it
may not work as well or completely, but still for pretty much everyone, this is going to
benefit your teeth in a major way. So there are really four main causes of tooth
decay. Excess sugar in your diet, too much phytic
acid, lack of minerals, and lack of fat-soluble vitamins. This is something that Weston A. Price and
other dentists figured out thousands of years ago, or hundreds of years ago about specifically
what actually causes cavities within your mouth. And so let’s start talking about number one,
excess sugar. We know excess sugar, when it sits in your
teeth, causes bad bacteria to build-up of all different types, which actually starts
to eat away at the enamel of your teeth, and actually has been linked to heart disease
and other issues. Actually your oral health can often times
be linked to the health of your entire body. So number one thing you’ve got to do if you
want to start to reverse cavities is remove all processed sugar from your diet. If you are going to consume something that
is sweet, I recommend stevia, I recommend a little bit of Manuka honey or raw local
honey, maximum a tablespoon a serving, or even fruit, something like a date. But I would get rid of all white sugar, all
corn syrup, and I’d even remove things like maple syrup and coconut sugar and that from
your diet in most cases for a period of time. And then again, doing maple syrup here and
there is fine, but for the most part you want to get sugar completely out of your diet because
that is a major cause of cavities. The second thing is something that a lot of
people have never heard of and don’t realize, but phytic acid, or too much phytic acid consumption,
can cause cavities. Now phytic acid is found mostly in grain products
or grains, beans, nuts, and seeds. And specifically it’s found in large amounts
in grains. And what phytic acid is, it’s sort of the
carrier, or it’s where most of the minerals and vitamins are bound into a food product. So let’s say, for instance, that you go out
and buy wheat bread today. And it says on the label, “Contains 20% your
daily value of folate, or vitamin B9, or vitamin b6, or iron,” some sort of mineral. Well remember this principle, “You aren’t
what you eat. You are what you digest.” Here’s the issue, phytic acid today is bound
to these minerals. You might consume it, but because of phytic
acid, you’re not absorbing it into your body. This is a huge thing to understand. Most of us are not getting minerals because
our foods aren’t properly prepared or cooked. This is why an Ezekiel bread or a sprouted-grain
bread is so much healthier than a regular bread, is when you soak a grain, or a nut,
or a seed, and then you let it sprout, that kills off phytic acid. So it unlocks the nutrients, so now you can
absorb all the vitamins and minerals. And so that’s big. So again, number one dietary cause, too much
sugar in your diet. Number two, you’re consuming too many grains
on a regular basis that aren’t sprouted or slow-cooked. And so if you’re going to buy brown rice,
or oatmeal, or oats, look for sprouted oats, or germinated rice. Only consume those types of whole-grains on
a regular basis. It’s going to go a long way in fighting cavities
and tooth decay. Step number three to beat cavities and tooth
decay is load up on minerals, especially not just calcium, but calcium, magnesium, also
selenium is great. But again, and iron, getting more minerals
in your diet, phosphorous, silica, you want minerals in your diet. You can take a mineral supplement, or also
start consuming foods that are mineral-dense such as vegetables, sprouted nuts and seeds,
meats, but really vegetables and sprouted seeds such as flaxseeds. Those are very, very dense in minerals, even
raw cheeses and dairy such as raw goat’s cheese or raw sheep’s yogurt. I don’t recommend cow dairy, but goat and
sheep milk, cheeses, and yogurts, and probiotic-rich foods are also fantastic for boosting up the
minerals in your diet. But I’d definitely recommend a multi-mineral
supplement that has magnesium. And last, but not least, consuming a diet
and supplements that are high in fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, K, and E. We know vitamin K and D especially help build
strong bones and help build strong teeth and tooth enamel. So again, if you want to start to reverse
cavities and start to build up that tooth enamel, you’ve got to have minerals and you’ve
got to have fat-soluble vitamins. So what I would start doing, is I would look
for a supplement that contains vitamins D and K in it absolutely. So vitamin D and K. I’d also start consuming more foods that are
orange and green. Those orange and red color foods are high
in beta-carotene, which is going to help support vitamin A within the body, production. Also getting a lot of green, leafy vegetables
and dairy products such as fermented, raw cheese and kefir and things like that. Those are full of vitamin K and vitamin D.
And then getting sunshine for more vitamin D, but in addition, I would take a fat-vitamin
supplement that has vitamin D and vitamin K if you’re looking to naturally reverse cavities. I’d look for vitamin D-3, and vitamin K-2
are the most beneficial. And then just, in general, getting more healthy
fatty acids in your diets such as Omega-3 fatty acids are fantastic as well. And the last natural treatment I want to mention
is you want to brush your teeth, flossing is okay, but really you want to brush your
teeth. And you want to do something called oil-pulling. Oil-pulling, it’s where you mix coconut oil,
or just use coconut oil or sesame oil. You’re going to take a tablespoon of it, or
a half a tablespoon, and swish it around in your mouth between 5 and 20 minutes. What I typically do is I do oil-pulling when
I get in the shower. So I’ll do a tablespoon of coconut oil, I’ll
take a shower, when I get out I’ll spit it out. That’s how I do oil-pulling. But oil-pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic technique,
it was part of Indian medicine, that’s been shown to actually help in preventing cavities
and help heal tooth decay and have great healthy gums. It even helps with teeth whitening. So look up, you might even look up online. I’ve got an article on this, “Dr. Axe oil
pulling.” So look up “Dr. Axe oil pulling.” I have a YouTube video on it as well on how
to do oil pulling. But start using oil pulling. I also love using essential oils in that way. Myrrh essential oil is probably the most beneficial
oil for your dental health. So myrrh oil. Also oils such as clove, peppermint, cinnamon
are also beneficial. But again, myrrh oil is great to do with oil
pulling or even rubbing on your gums if you have gum inflammation is great as well, but
also great for cavities. So again, using some of those essential oils
are great and oil pulling. And you might also make a toothpaste that
helps re-mineralize your teeth. I’d recommend some baking soda, you can add
actually some minerals like a mineral powder supplement to that as well, as well as some
peppermint oil, make your own at home toothpaste. You can look it up. I’ve got a recipe. Look up “Dr. Axe tooth paste recipe.” I have one of those online as well. But guys, I hope you’ve enjoyed this training. Here’s the truth. If it’s a mild or moderate cavity, it many
cases it can be reversed. And if you have gum disease, tooth decay,
these things can be healed to a certain point just like if you have an injury or a health
condition, your teeth can heal like many things can heal. Again, if it’s very severe, it may be to where
you do have to get a filling. Make sure they’re not a silver filling, might
have to be a white, like a porcelain filling. That can happen sometimes. But a lot of these things you can see great
and fantastic results with. If you want to learn more in depth information
