Do Your Teeth Reflect Your Health?

Do your teeth reflect your health? The world famous dentist Weston A. Price believed this to be true. Price pioneered the belief that nutrition directly affects our teeth. Even in the early 1900s, he believed that our modern-day diet of processed and refined food directly affected the health of our teeth. So, Dr. Price made it his mission to find out what our teeth really needed to stay healthy and cavity free. After examining the teeth of many native tribes around the world (all of which had remarkable teeth–without even brushing), Dr. Price created a diet to prevent and treat dental decay. Using this nutritional approach, Dr. Price was able to prevent over 95% of cavities.?Once the diet was followed correctly and for an adequate amount of time, he saw cavities actually heal themselves. This may seem crazy, but if bones can heal themselves after a fracture or break, a tooth can heal, too. We can literally remineralize our teeth so that holes from cavities can fill in! Dr. Price’s dietary recommendations include: Eliminating processed foods like white flour, sugar and most grains that are not soaked or sprouted. Eliminating hydrogenated and other toxic oils and replacing them with healthy ones like extra virgin coconut oil. Taking Cod Liver Oil. Making your own bone broth stocks that are packed full of minerals and gelatin. Eating fermented foods like kefir,...

Kim had suffered a stroke in 2008 also, but had appeared to have recovered from that ailment. The White House informed the media that President Barack Obama had been told of Kim’s death, and it was closely monitoring and in touch with South Korea and Japan. Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda told ministers at a special security meeting to prepare for the unexpected, including on border affairs, Japan’s top government spokesman said.

He was released by Indonesian authorities during the weekend and landed in a Virgin flight from Denpasar. His face still unseen The family’s waterfront home in Lake Macquarie was screened with hessian screens, obviously to keep the media from capturing the boy?s face. The boy, his family, and his lawyers have been hiding his face even since his arrest on October 4, alternatively using a black balaclava, denim jacket, or a mask.
