Are you all watching the OraWellness HealThy Mouth Summit videos everyday? The OraWellness people are posting three each day on their website for those who have registered. I am watching some of the summit. It’s hard to catch all three hours everyday with my busy life of being homeschooling, chauffeuring and Dr. Mom. We’ve got two sickies here…which is fodder for another post.
Anyway, from what I’ve been able to catch, I am loving that every speaker refers to Dr. Weston A. Price’s work out of the ones I’ve listened to. I got this great idea: let’s share notes about what you we are learning since we are all moms and it’s hard for us all to catch all the videos.
On Day Two of the Summit, Sarah Pope, of The Healthy Home Economist told the story of how she saved one of her teeth, a baby tooth that had never fallen out, from being pulled. Now I can’t remember what she said she did. Does anybody remember? She also shared what she did to heal the cavity that each of her son’s had. For one, it involved giving daily doses of high vitamin butter oil and fermented cod liver oil. For her other son, I think she said she did those two oils, plus she stopped giving him peanut butter, because peanut butter is high in phytic acid and she figured that’s why the tooth had a hole. Phytic acid blocks mineral absorption. To help it remineralize or fill in the hole he needed to stop taking peanut butter. She also gave him liver. She shared how to get a child to eat liver if he doesn’t like. She says you chop it up into little pieces and freeze it, and then have the child swallow the frozen pieces. Hmmm, I wonder if that would work with some of my picky children.
I also learned about oil pulling. Basically, you take 1 tsp of coconut oil or other vegetable oil into your mouth without swallowing and swish it around for 20 min. Then spit it out into the garbage, not the sink. This will help remove bacteria and mucus from your mouth which are contributing to infection in your body. Most, if not all, infections and diseases begin in the mouth.
I also learned that every tooth is attached to a meridian in your body, which connects to certain organs. If a certain organ is sick, it can affect that tooth and vice versa. Heal the tooth and you can heal the organ, according to one of the experts who presented.
Anyway, I would love to hear what you are all learning from it. Please share below!
