Eating lots of sugary foods like cakes and candies and forgetting to brush your teeth isn’t always the cause of cavities. The causes of tooth decay tend to vary from person to person. Tooth decay can be caused by not having enough minerals in your diet, not enough fat-soluble vitamins in your body, like A, D, E and K, and nutrients not being readily bioavailable, meaning your body isn’t soaking in the nutrients correctly.
Fortunately there is a solution! Eat the right foods for a healthy body! Foods like:
- Coconut oil
- Grassfed meats only
- Organic vegetables
- Whole grains
- Bone broth
You may also want to try supplements like fermented cod liver oil. Of course, we’re not telling you not to avoid sweets and take good care of your teeth! But there are some alternatives to simply brushing and flossing three times a day. The video below gives us a rundown on how to heal those nasty little cavities.
