After being on Eating Right for awhile, quit using commercial toothpastes because most contain carrageenan or xanthun gum.  While reading a book called Body Reflexology written by Mildred Carter & Tammy Weber, I found a solution that works for me.  My teeth and gums were horrible before I did this.  This is quoted from the book:  "AN EFFECTIVE TOOTHPASTE.  A dentist I went to many years ago for a mouth infection told me that I had perfect teeth and gums and asked what I used for toothpaste.  I told him that I had used salt and soda all my life.  He said that was the reason that I had hard, healthy gums and teeth.  The glycerine used in toothpastes, he said, tended to soften the gums.  When I mentioned this to certain other dentists, they made fun of me and said that it had nothing to do with my hard gums and perfect teeth."  This is on page 58 of the book.

In another paragraph she says " I use a salt shaker with large holes.  In this, I put equal parts of salt and soda and two or three beans to keep the mixture from caking into hard lumps.  I sprinkle a small amount of this in my hand and apply it with a dampened toothbrush."  She also rinses with hydrogen peroxide.

Personally, I buy a container of Trader Joe's Sea Salt.  Then I use an empty Sea Salt container filled with soda.  I sprinkle a little of each in my palm and use with a moistened toothbrush.  This way, both ingredients have a tight lid on in the bathroom and can be cleaned well after emptying the container. After brushing my teeth.  I follow up with my electric toothbrush, so I don't get the taste of salt and soda in its bristles.  Before this, I floss and use a plastic tip between the teeth.  I haven't tried the peroxide.  My teeth have been healthy ever since I switched to this method.

One of Dr. D'Adamo's books discouraged the use of flouride in toothpaste.  This was another reason I switched.

I've been told by my dental hygienist that it doesn't really matter in what order we floss, as long as one flosses at least once a day. Whenever I go in for my teeth cleaning, they always clean the teeth then floss the teeth. I was thinking that if I'm brushing with baking soda then flossing, it would allow the baking soda to get even farther between my teeth. I have no idea if that is a sound thought, just one that made sense to me.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

I need to look for non flouride tooth paste as well as get the mercury fillings out of my 2 teeth.

OK, dont throw an AVOID at me but do nonnies tend to have more cavities & 'thinner' teeth than secretors?

they have more plaque buildup and thus more issues with gums and teeth.

avocados are beneficial for preventing that buildup!

Quoted from THE SIGNIFICANCE OF NON-SECRETOR STATUS
http://www.dadamo.com/knowbase/subtype/sec9.htm
ORAL/ DENTAL

In all blood groups, the average amount of cavities is lower for secretors than for non-secretors. This difference is most significant for smooth surface areas of the teeth. And, secretors of blood group mucin A had the lowest numbers of cavities. A higher intensity of oral disease is found among non-secretors. So it is not surprising that when it comes to precancerous, or cancerous changes to tissue of the mouth and esophagus, non-secretors seem to fair worse than secretors. This oral disease susceptibility is reflected in the occurrence of epithelial dysplasia (pre-malignant changes) which is found almost exclusively in the non-secretor group. Being a non-secretor also offers a slight increase risk for having a problem with habitual snoring.

Click HERE for the website for Sacred Soap and a list of ingredients.  It does have palm oil, so I don't know if that will be the same as coconut oil for sensitivies.  It is very gentle in my mouth, but you do need to gently shake it each time you use it or the ingredients will separate.

You could take the info to your health food stores and ask them to see if they can get it from their distributors.  Many will do their best to accommodate customer requests.

Another great suggestion, Victoria. I've just printed the site.
