The posts I’ve written chronicling our adventure with the Cure Tooth Decay Diet are some of the most popular on my site. So it’s time for me to check in again and let you all know the fate that befell us. The first one was 8 Cavities, 1 Petit Four and Some Fish Head Stew or Cure Your Own Tooth Decay. The second was Don’t call me crunchy – or Abracadabra, no more cavities! The third was Does the Cure Tooth Decay Diet work?
My 5 year old son shockingly had 8 cavities – in every molar. For three months we tried the Cure Tooth Decay diet. On the smallest two cavities it worked! They were almost gone when we went in for the checkup. Here is where we went all wrong. We gave up on the diet. We had been doing so well too. We just, well, I, Mom, fell off the wagon. We had been having bone broth soup, lots of mussels, sour dough bread, and were taking cod liver and skate liver oil. We had given up sugar, whole grains, and processed foods. It was working.
Since, we’ve spent about $3000 on my child’s fillings, root canal, pulling a tooth, and adding a spacer. The last of his fillings is scheduled for next month. In all honesty…
We should have just filled them from the get go
Especially the two big ones. I am not opposed to eating healthy. In fact, I love the idea. However, in reality, my family just doesn’t eat like natural foods super heros. We like candy. We stop for fast food once in a while. We like tortillas and crackers.
The diet left us better than it found us
I’m not a complete failure. I still make sourdough bread regularly. It’s the only bread we eat. We still drink raw milk. It’s the only milk we drink. I just wish I had known that we’d fall off the wagon and that if you have cavities and you’re just a normal, un-super human, you should probably get them filled and try to do better on your adult teeth.
It’s a great diet that makes sense. Go for it if you can. It only works as well as you do.
