There is a lot of good information here, but also a lot of personal beliefs hammered in over and over and some bad information mixed in. I gave it 4 stars because the good stuff is material you just don't tend to find elsewhere (I've never seen most of it anywhere). It's reasonably well documented but ultimately very one-note.

It's all about diet. Which doesn't add up, but I'll agree diet is very important. Unfortunately, his examples of cultures with good teeth are all very dairy-centric ones. S

So grateful to have discovered the research in this book. After a year of being frustrated with my daughter's tooth decay despite a healthy diet and regular brushing/flossing, I now have hope. After 2 months of following this diet the best we could (raw dairy, cod liver oil, lots of veggies, organic meats, little fruit, low grains, and pretty much no sugar) her decay stopped and two of her cavities healed completely. The dentist was shocked as he crossed those two off her chart and told me to ke ...more

To cure tooth decay, Ramiel Nagel used the research of the dentists Weston A Price and Melvin Page to heal himself and his daughter. Price focused on principles he found in all “native” diets around the world that were cavity free and Page focused on diet and body chemistry. Nagel adds reflexology to the protocol with the intention to help balance the glands thus balancing the blood chemistry thus helping with the correct flow of the fluids in teeth thus aiding in healthy teeth.

I had extreme tooth sensitivity for over a year. It was so bad that I couldn't open my mouth outside in the winter or else I'd have an instant tooth ache. After 2 weeks on the prescribed diet, my tooth sensitivity disappeared. I also have, what mainstream dentists call, a dead tooth. My "dead tooth" made my whole head ache for weeks. The vast majority of dentists would recommend a root canal, but I have decided to try to heal my tooth with diet. It turns out that my tooth is not dead after all, ...more
There are some interesting ideas in here and I think I'm going to start implementing some of the nutritional recommendations into my diet, however there were a few things I just couldn't get over.

Ramiel Nagel says, "For many, but not for all, vegetarianism is a masked form of a denial of life. Somewhere deep within you, you believe that life is suffering, and you want to suffer. Superficially, vegetarianism is a good way to minimize impact on the planet, not harm animals, and to get a high and l

My only complaint about this book is the organization. When I first got it, I was desperate for WHAT DO I DO!! after my 2 yo inexplicably developed severe cavities and a gum abscess after we had been meticulously taking care of her teeth and visiting the dentist every 3 months for almost a year. The first several chapters include thoughts on prayers, motivational thinking, and how modern dentistry works. That's all good and fine, but I wanted practical steps right away. I ended up skipping all t ...more

This book is written by a father after his daughter's teeth crumbled out of her mouth. He did a bunch of research to try to save her teeth (his teeth were also failing ... made me wonder about their drinking water, etc.). The book is heavily reliant on the ideas of Weston A. Price. I have mixed feelings about Price. He has some good things to offer, but much from his foundation is extreme and unrealistic. This book suffered the same problem but in much worse fashion. The man who wrote the book i ...more

Notes to Self:

-My three-year-old had a rotting molar and within three weeks of extremely limiting (as in, once a week) any intake of sugar, grains, potatoes, or nuts, his molar has hardened. So though it is not pretty, he no longer needs a filling. So.... even though this isn't the most well-written or well-organized or well-communicated book of all time, I am giving it 5 stars for saving my son from needless medical intervention.

-I have been taking green pastures fermented cod liver oil plus hi

Fascinating read on the correlation between diet and the health of your teeth. I have a few very small cavities that I really don't want to have filled, so when I found this book which claims to have the answers to "healing" cavities, I was intrigued. Most of the book is fantastic, but there are a few spots that bothered me (like the author's unfounded rejection of vaccinations). Other than those spots, I enjoyed learning about Dr Weston Price's travels and discoveries about people who never bru ...more

a must read for all those looking to firstly understand their problems with tooth decay and STOP THEM. In addition I find Ramiel to bring via Dr. WEston Price an ESSENTIAL understanding of proper diet and nutrition.

It has also amazed me to find that a lot of recommendations in the book were quite familiar to me. As a child< i recall my diet to be filled with items from this book. The recommendations for proper nourishment are heavily focused around organ meats, fat fat and more fat, fat solu
