Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Hi Everyone!Hoping to find some input from my fellow rawists.I've had some dental issues in the past, but for the most part I'd go to a yearly cleaning/exam and have no issues. I'd say for a good 8 years I had great check ups and no decay. 2 years ago they canceled my cleaning appointment, and I just failed to call back and reschedule (tisk, tisk, I know- no lectures on that or the flossing please ;) I started having issues with a tooth, called, got a cleaning and exam and I have SIX cavities!!! WHAT???!!! I brush a lot (but don't floss much- never did)- even have one of those expensive machine thingys... I know I missed a couple of cleanings, but I seriously doubt that is the cause. It's hard not to "blame" raw food for this- however, for quite a while I drank kefir made from raw milk and also some raw cheese from raw milk. I asked my husband what he thought- he said "stomach acid". My breath and digestion were "off" really badly for a while- quite a while. I've since gone to just raw fruit and leafy greens (fruitarian) and the breath is sweet again and no more gas and bloating. I'm wondering if all will be well with my teeth now??? Where the seeds and nuts (yes, I ate a LOT of those!) really producing that much stomach acid so as to deteriorate my teeth?! YIKES!
Anyone else experiencing tooth decay, have any experience of knowledge that would be helpful? Thank you in advance!
