Remineralizing – An update

For anyone reading this you may recall a previous post where I explained that I was remineralizing my own teeth and that of my child. I laid out my plans and set forth!

Since then I have learned more as well as tried and changed aspects until I finally started getting dramatic results rather than mediocre results.

The first and most important aspect is always diet. I eat almost no grains (rice and occasional “treats”) and have almost no refined sugars in my daily eating. I make broth from scratch several times a week and baked goods of any kind are rare.

Second I DO take some supplements partly because my teeth can restrict the foods I can eat and partly to help this process, along with general health benefits.

The supplements I take are often generic house brands (except the fermented cod liver oil/butter oil combo). I take a probiotic (recommended dosage), B complex (recommended dosage), Green Pastures fermented cod liver oil/butter oil combo (recommended dosage), calcium magnesium d3 (double the daily dose), and 2000 IU’s of another Vit D supplement.

I do not have access to raw or even pastured dairy products at this time which is why I am taking the cal/mag supplement.

Also I am using the Earthpaste toothpaste on myself and my son. I give my son one capsule of the fish/butter oil (I bribe him with something for anyone wondering hahaha). At this point in time I can now see rapid remineralization from my bicuspides forward, however it is possible that I may still need implants to replace at least some of my molars.

Originally I was taking all the supplements in the morning but the fish/butter pills were upsetting my digestion so now I take all except one probiotic and the Vit D at bedtime. Meaning I sleep through the stomach upset!

This is a good lecture for those who can’t afford to buy the book (linked below and in the amazon store)

I haven’t written on ginger?!?

Ginger is something I always have on hand. The fact that I have not done a post on it is shocking to me. Especially since ginger is my default choice for digestion issues… Well here it is now.

Long known as highly beneficial for it’s digestive properties and ability to reduce inflammation in the body, people throughout Asia have been using this rhizomes as medicine for thousands of years. Ginger originated southern China and spread to other parts of Asia, as well as the Caribbean and West Africa. The plant itself is very pretty and can make a good ornamental choice for some gardeners.

Outside of culinary applications ginger is also a very effective digestive aid. The tea is my first choice for indigestion, illnesses relating to the stomach, or for ulcers. It is also gentle enough that it can be given to a toddler with an unhappy tummy. As usual, here is the QRDS:

OMG DON’T DIE!!!

Okay so maybe the title is a little overblown but that is how I felt in that moment.

When my son was about 10mos he was very stuffy. The cats were shedding, a whole bunch of flowers were in bloom and the dust in the house got kicked up from deep cleaning.

I felt so bad that he was so stuffed up, so as he was laying on my chest I got the bright idea to waft the smell from an essential oil blend for clearing the breathing. I knew enough to not apply it directly on him but a drop managed to fall right under his nose. I was carefully wiping DOWN when his father (the fucking moron) comes and wipes it straight up inside his nose.

The reaction was dramatic and immediate. The lemon in the blend caused burning and swelling so severe that I had to use my fingers to keep his throat open while his father called 911.

The peppermint caused his mucus membranes to overflow with fluid to try and expel the oil.

The eucalyptus oil caused him to sleep for almost 48hrs straight. He woke only long enough to feed a couple times. Luckily the eucalyptus oil didn’t cause a more serious reaction like coma or seizures. This experience led me to start researching essential oil safety with great depth and now I write on it as you may have seen.

To finish, my son recovered quickly and is in fine health today.

The natural medicine cabinet

I see posts in facebook groups asking what everyone keeps in their medicine cabinets for their children. Of course a whole range of things are listed, both natural and modern options, and the list can be very extensive. So other than the obvious items like bandaids and other first aid items here is what I keep in MY cabinet.

 

Bentonite Clay – Rashes, bites, stings, pimples, anything to do with toxins.

Application is simple, add water and either drink or apply as a paste.

Garlic – Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, removing parasites (food), cancer (food), heart disease (food)

Typical application is in food or supplements. Home made garlic oil can also be used for ear infections and some topical applications.

Cayenne – Digestion (food), heart disease (food), candida overgrowth (food), pain relief, boosts other herbs effects

Food is the easiest way to incorporate cayenne pepper but supplements also work. And there are topical creams with capsicum for pain relief. Learning about possible drug interactions is wise.

Comfrey – Aids healing, ingestion is unwise.

Topical application of comfrey oil speeds almost all types of healing.

Various essential oils – Lavender, rose absolute, pine, sweet marjoram, frankincense, rosemary (for me, not my child).

This is not exhaustive but it is the things I always keep on hand. The grocery store and your local natural health store can supply all of the items listed, however I would be silly not to point you to my amazon affiliate store as well: http://astore.amazon.ca/imbuheal-20

Lectures on sugar

Below I have shared several lectures and such on sugar and the effects on the human body. As with anything, moderation is the primary key. Naturally occurring sugars such as raw honey or what is naturally in a whole fruit will not have the same effect simply because it would be extremely difficult to consume them in the same quantity to even match a single can of soda. The method of delivery and design of the foods that contain refined sugars allow for absurdly un-natural levels of consumption and this is the primary reason for the horrifying effects that can occur.
