Still get a couple of juicy ones every week or two, but I do better sticking to whole foods like potatoes and white rice. Makes it difficult to snack though.August 19, 2013 at 4:01 am in reply to: Anybody into "alternative" tooth paste / powders / etc? #11706
When I looked into the glycerine thing it seemed to come back to a quote from one alternative dentist guy. I’d be interested if someone could find something more on that. It hasn’t been my experience, though. On the two seperate occasions I had to remineralise my teeth I used once glycerin and once non-glycerin toothpaste, and achieved similar results with both. However I did use Listerine and a fluoride rinse after, so maybe that dealt with the glycerine.
I don’t think topical sodium fluoride, rinsed out promptly is really a risk to anyone. Fluoride is at least preferable to a lifetime exposure to filling materials and adhesives. It depends how good your teeth are, but don’t be afraid to reintroduce fluoride toothpaste if things go downhill.
The most disturbing thing about water fluoridation is the use of compounds like hexafluoroaluminate putting aluminium into our brains. Hello, dementia…
I found baking soda had a stink all of its own.
Zinc sulphate cream worked great, but clogged my pores like a mofo.
Magnsium chloride spray works pretty good, but you gotta build up slowly as too high concentration can hella burn.
I find most of them to be the mirror image of regular doctors; a little too open to natural remedies they don’t really have the background to fully comprehend, as opposed to pharmaceuticals.
After wasting a lot of money on the UK equivalents, now I try instead to find scientists who have moved into researching health topics.August 5, 2013 at 3:27 am in reply to: Anybody into "alternative" tooth paste / powders / etc? #10887
I fucked up my teeth good doing stupid things like brushing with xylitol granules (lol) and washing with peppermint oil after soaking my brush with peroxide to sterilise it (Wtf is foaming up so well… Apparently it’s my TEETH?).
I did manage to fix the thinning and demineralisation with Ellie Philips’ system, which concludes with not fully rinsing out a fluoride mouthwash. If you search Ellie Philips cliff notes there should be a PDF with the gist of it.
For people with bad teeth I think fluoride isn’t such a bad idea. The chapter from her book on fluoride is available somewhere too…
I’m no longer so adventurous with my dental habits. Currently I dissolve and rinse my mouth with xylitol after everything I eat, then at night I rinse again with xylitol and brush with Sensodyne Classic for the strontium.
I thought inclined bed therapy is what all the cool kids were doing these days
I have done plenty of stupid shit
The best one is buying a magic “zapper”. You had to wear a little plastic frequency generator with copper contacts for a couple of hours. The fun part was some internet guru would share his magic mind meld super frequencies; to do it you needed to either supply some DNA like hair, or if not then just write your name and date of birth on a piece of paper and put it in the device!
I knew how retarded it was at the time, but lots of internet buddies who I thought were quite reasonable people were totally feelin’ its effects. My brother picked it up and tried to open it once. I snatched it off him and tried to explain it briefly. Man, if he had opened it and found my note I would have died!
A hypnotist tried making me follow his fingers to simulate REM or something… I told him I was feeling kind of anxious, so I watched him move his finger about – “Feeling calmer?” “Not really”, so more finger moving. I thought he would give up if I kept being honest with him, but after a few minutes it didn’t look like he was going to so I lied and said it worked. Another time he made me arrange pebbles so he could interpret my relationship with my family.
Then there is all the Curezone stuff like taking clay and psyllium to clear out all the evil colon bogies. I never actually managed to get any castings from my intestines. The liver flushes were fun too.
