Tooth decay is an alarming sign implying that there is something wrong going on in your body. In order to obtain optimal dental health you should focus on having a good oral hygiene and a healthy diet.

There are number of reasons for this dental issue, such as:

• High intake of processed foods
• Hormone imbalance
• Fat-soluble vitamins deficiency (mostly vitamins D and A)
• Insufficient intake of minerals
• A diet rich in Phytic Acid.

This acid is usually found in grains, nuts and some legumes. To reduce its harmful effects, soak these ingredients overnight in water mixed with a tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar.

Natural ways to treat cavity:

Avoid sugary foods

If you want to improve the health of your teeth make sure you reduce the consumption of sugary food items. Sugar is highly acidic ingredient which decalcifies and de-mineralizes the entire enamel, causing the mouth bacteria to multiply, because they feed on it.

Include nutrient-rich foods in your diet

Consuming fat-soluble vitamins and minerals can both prevent and fight tooth decay. You just need to provide your body with healthy fats which are included in avocado, coconut oil, nuts and seeds or add green leafy vegetables to your daily diet.

Oil Pulling

This oral-detoxification technique has been used for centuries. Use 2 teaspoons of coconut oil and rinse your mouth with it for twenty minutes. Then, spit out. You should start with three or five minutes and gradually increase to 20.

Oil pulling is also useful in the treatment of gingivitis and headaches.

Exclude the intake of phytic acid

Beans, seeds, grains and nuts contain phytic acid, which prevents the absorption of the minerals from the food.

Moreover, it leaches them out of your bones and teeth. So, make sure you avoid consuming high phytate-foods, especially if they are genetically modified.

Clean your teeth with mineralizing toothpaste
Flouride-free toothpastes are usually very expensive and if you cannot afford them, then you should learn how to prepare them by yourself.

You need the following products:

• ¼ teaspoon of baking soda
• 3 tablespoons of earth clay (food grade diatomaceous)
• ½ teaspoon of coconut oil
• ¼ teaspoon of mint-flavored chlorophyll
• 1 tablespoon of filtered water
• ¼ teaspoon of peppermint extract

Contrary to popular belief, cavity can be healed naturally. So, do not hesitate to try the tips we shared with you today and thus improve your dental health.
