List Of Foods To Help Regrow Tooth Enamel

Repairing The Teeth

I have had many letters about whether people can, or cannot, regrow their tooth enamel.  There is no answer to this question – For a start, I am not a dentist and cannot give advice on people’s teeth, especially when I have no idea about the age, the health, the circumstances of the individual, and so forth.

Each individual case is different, which is why professional help should be sought if you are contemplating to follow any sort of health programme for the purpose of reversing a serious illness such as cancer or multiple sclerosis, or for the purpose of regrowing your tooth enamel.  I would advise you to see a good experienced naturopath, an ayurvedic practitioner, or a homeopath or herbalist. Consulting a naturopathic dentist would be a very good option if you wish to repair tooth enamel, as it is possible that the dentist could apply minerals to the teeth to help them repair themselves.

The Jacqui Davison/Gerson diet, and other wheatgrass programmes have worked well for curing many cancers and have repaired teeth in the process.  But there are other therapies which have worked equally well, such as a macrobiotic diet which is based on the Japanese diet, or the traditional Indian diet of Ayurvedic medicine. Indian people who have been brought up on traditional Indian food such as dahl, rice, and vegetable curries, with or without meat, usually have beautiful teeth, which shows how good this kind of diet is for the health.

I have written much about the Gerson therapy for cancer, and Jacqui Davison’s case, where new tooth enamel was grown while she followed Gerson’s therapy for cancer.

But not everyone has the ability, the perseverance, or the time, or the money, to put into following such rigorous programmes as Gerson’s, or other strict therapies recommended for cancer.

So – a modified diet is the best approach for most people, unless they are extremely determined and wish to follow the Gerson diet to the letter, with its castor oil doses every second day, daily enemas, and vegetable juices every hour, among other things.

A Basic Diet For Good Health:  I devised a special diet for my family many years ago.  I found  this diet to be good by trial and error. This diet was formulated  mainly to prevent my eldest child from suffering from eczema: Basically, all pre-packaged food, or processed food, was avoided completely so that no preservatives, colourants, or flavourings  were consumed at all.

All food was made at home. We omitted dairy foods, wheat foods, bread, sugar and yeast foods.  No coffee, tea or alcohol was used.  After following the diet for 9 months, to help my son’s eczema, we discovered one day that the small hole which had developed in his new front tooth had healed itself.  This proved that good nutrition, and avoiding harmful things in the diet, really does help tooth enamel to regenerate itself.  Although being young helps as well:  I have heard of other children who have had small cavities which have healed themselves naturally.

Now, I know that this diet  I devised is a similar one which is promoted for prevention and cure of candida.  This anti-eczema diet of ours is similar to the macrobiotic and Indian diets, where any cooked meats and fish are used, with any cooked vegetables and rice. But I was not following any specified programme as such:  I simply used all the foods which were healthy, and abandoned all that were unhealthy for us.  My son’s eczema was my barometer:  Eczema would appear on his arms very soon after eating anything which he was ‘allergic’ to, such as cow’s milk, wheat, and sugar, or yeast foods. He had been subjected to 245T aerial spraying over our house in the Hokianga when he was not much more than a year old. This had affected our health very badly.

After a while, I found that goat’s milk was tolerated by the whole family.  At first, I used fresh, unpasteurized goat’s milk to supplement breast feeding my youngest child. Then, when he was a little older, I found that powdered goat’s milk did not cause any reaction to any of my children, and so this was included in the daily diet also.  But for a long time, we did not use milk at all.

Basically, the foods we avoided were all wheat, all sugar, all dairy except for butter. Using butter was recommended by Walter Last – I found butter to be very healthful, but not so cow’s milk.

So I am going to list all of the foods which proved beneficial for us in preventing eczema, and which eventually repaired the enamel on my son’s tooth

List of Basic Foods To Help Regrow Tooth Enamel

All Cooking Oils were good, especially Olive oil, Grape seed oil, Rice bran oil.

All fruits are ok in small amounts, although citrus  or very acid fruits were not so good.  I found that using oil or protein with fruit helped the assimilation of the fruit sugar.  A banana mashed with an egg yolk, and a tablespoon of olive oil, with a little rice, and dessicated coconut, made a very good desert which was assimilated easily, without skin reaction.  This might not suit everybody with eczema or allergies though.  But generally, if you have a sugar disturbance, then eating oils or fats or protein with a fruit will aid the absorption of  its sugar content. Remember to munch a stalk of celery after each meal, especially if you have had a sweet dish. This is very important for children.

Alfalfa spouts:  These are very alkaline – one of the most alkaline foods of all.  Very good to include these in your daily salads.


Almond milk is excellent, combined with sesame or sunflower seeds.  This is a good calcium-rich substitute for dairy milk





Avocado and Avocado Oil


Beans – All dried beans were good.  Also fresh green beans


Beetroot – Grated raw beetroot in salads with grated apple.  Or cooked beetroot.

Besan Flour


Brown rice

Brussels Sprouts


Cabbage – Raw in Cole-slaw, or cooked.




Channa Flour


Coconut – Fresh or Dessicated coconut

Coconut Milk or Cream

Comfrey – If you can get it.  Comfrey is especially high in silica and other minerals which aid the growth of the teeth, hair, nails and bone.  I used comfrey tea quite frequently, and occasionally put a leaf in with the silver beet, maybe two or three times a week.   Very good to use in the diets of growing children.

Cornmeal – Both fine yellow cornmeal and coarse grain. Tinned kernels were also good.



Dates – We used a lot of dates on Walter Last’s recommendation.  Walter wrote a wonderful book called ‘Heal Yourself’. Dates are an ideal substitute for sweetening. I used dates to sweeten desserts, with coconut as well.  These sweets were not as sweet as if you were to use sugar, but the family got used to these less sweet desserts. We found dates did not cause an allergic reaction, whereas sugar, wheat and dairy foods, except for butter, did.

Eggs.  Only use Free-range eggs. Preferably organic.  2 raw egg yolks are taken daily on the Gerson diet. Raw egg yolk is healthy, but not raw egg white.  The white must be cooked. Raw egg yolk can be used with olive oil to make aioli, a Mediterranean substitute for butter.  Aioli is a great way to add more protein and olive oil into the diet, as it can be used as a salad dressing, as well as a dip, or a replacement for butter.


Fish – All fish was good, except for smoked fish or flavoured tinned fish. Tinned tuna, sardines in oil were good. I avoided tinned fish in sauces.


Grapes and Grapeseed Oil


Kumara or sweet potato





Mung Beans – Cooked and sprouted. Sprouted mung beans for salads are a great food, as they are rich in enzymes, vitamin C, and are alkaline in nature.


Olive Oil and Black Olives

Onions – red and white. Spring onion and chives. All the onion family are very good.



Pea Flour

Peppers – All peppers green and red



Raisins – Like sultanas, we only used these occasionally.  Dates were better.



Sesame Seeds and Sesame oil

Silver Beet (in moderation – I would not use this two days in a row, as I found it had too much oxalis acid to use too often)

Spinach (in moderation – same as for silver beet)

Sultanas – I used these only in moderation and not very frequently.  Dates were better for sweetening.


Sunflower Seeds and Sunflower Oil






All meats chicken and fish were used. I would say that we used more protein to replace wheat, generally, although we did use rice and cornmeal breads, and other grains from the list above on a daily basis.

We avoided all fermented foods while on this diet, including tofu and tempeh.  No vinegars, tomato sauce or soy sauces were used. Vinegars are yeast foods, which can cause candida. The above foods, generally, were good for treating candida. Fruits are used in moderation.  Too much fruit sugar can cause candida and eczema, which is why we used fruit in moderation.  We found fruit best if almonds or sunflower seed, or a drink of almond milk was taken at the same time.

Clean the Teeth with Alkaline Foods:  We used raw celery or carrot or apple at the end of any meal, especially if there was a dessert.  My children also had raw carrot apple,  and celery in their lunch boxes, to finish their meal, although they say they didn’t eat it very often.  However, I made sure that they did so at home.

Natural Constipation Cure With Water

Constipation should Be Avoided: Constipation causes toxins to sit around in the bowels, where they will be reabsorbed back into the blood. This causes auto-intoxication.

Adequate Water Is Necessary To Purify the Body,  prevent constipation, and keep the immune system strong. Constipation causes auto-intoxication, which results in sickness, and a generall weakening of the immune system.

Constipation Causes Cancer and Arthritis if it the condition is long-term. If the bowels are kept clean and regular, and free of constipation, then diseases such as cancer and arthritis do not usually develop, unless intoxication occurs from some other, external,  chemical poisoning.  Ten glasses of water should be taken by adults each day.  More than this is required if the weather is very hot, if you are physically active, and if you have a bigger than average  build.

Water is needed for a healthy bowel, and this is stressed by Dr Frank Hurdle in his book  ‘A Country Doctor’s Common Sense Health Manual’, which was published in1975 by Parker Publishing Company Inc., New York.

Dr Hurdle should know what he is talking about:  He  had a wealth of experience as a practicing physician before writing  his ‘Common Sense Health Manual’.  This experience includes 12 years in private practice, two years at Fort Logan Mental Health Centre,  two years in the United States Army Medical Corp, and several years working on research projects.

Dr Hurdle, who says that constipation is a world-wide problem, and that everybody suffers from this at some time in their lives,  cannot stress enough the importance of water  in preventing constipation and disease.  Here is what he has to say about the reasons for constipation, and the lack of water as a cause:

He gives a list of eight  ‘common things that provoke constipation’.  His list  reads:  1. Not enough fluids  2. Lack of abdominal muscle tone. 3. Not enough fluids  4. Lack of bulk in the diet.  5. Not enough fluids.  6. Nervous gut syndrome. 7. Not enough fluids.  8. Laxative habit.

Water is important for bowel function. The primary function of the large intestine is to reabsorb fluid from the digested food passing through.  You need to have adequate fluids in your diet so that there is enough fluid for the large intestine to absorb what it needs, and still leave enough moisture in the digested food so that it can pass through easily.  If your intake of water is too low, then you get constipated, simple as that.

Get Enough Exercise To Prevent Constipation:  Of course, exercise, and a healthy diet also play a part in the healthy digestion of food.  So make sure that you do get some regular exercise on a daily basis.  Light jogging,  or walking, or swimming, or tennis, or yoga, or skipping are all fun ways to exercise.

Eating a good breakfast is important to prevent constipation.  Breakfast starts the digestion working for the day, which includes intestinal function as well. If you have a habit of skipping breakfast, then you are shutting down your digestive system right at the time nature intends it to get cracking and start processing food.  This leads to constipation.

My friend Bernhard Petersen stresses that breakfast is very important. Eating a large bowl of cereal such as porridge with a grated apple on it, or a bowl of bran and yoghurt, or a plate of rice with dried fruits, followed by boiled eggs, or scrambled eggs, or some other nutritious food, is important for busy people.

Dr Dr Max Gerson worked out a very successful treatment for his cancer patients, and an important part of it was the eating of a large bowl of oatmeal porridge, taken with a raw grated apple each morning.

This porridge and apple formula was to provide bulk for the intestines, and to get the digestive and intestinal functions working optimally, as well as to provide nutrients.

His recovery programme for his cancer patients involved also the taking of 2 tablespoons of castor oil every second day, which was another bowel-cleansing technique.  Castor oil also detoxifies the liver, and reduces cancer tumours. This can be used by an otherwise healthy person once a week to detoxify liver and intestines. People treating degenerative disease such as cancer would need to take it more frequently, and on a regular  basis such as Dr Gerson recommended.

Coffee and tea drinkers take heed:  Drinking coffee or tea first thing in the morning can dull the appetite, leading you to think that it is OK to rush off to work or to child care or somewhere without that breakfast.  But this is very harmful to the body, bad for the nervous system,  bad for the general health, and will create constipation.  Too much coffee can also upset the acidophilus organisms in the bowel, which aid digestion. When these beneficial bacteria get killed off,  candida overgrowth can become a problem, and this can cause constipation, or diarrhoea in some cases.

Take Notice Of Your Bowel Impulses:  I believe that constipation exists in many people because they ignore the responses of the bowel:  When the bowel is stimulated and sending messages to go to the toilet in the morning, many people carry on with their hurrying, and pay no attention to the bowel responses.  If this is ignored, then the bowel will give up and probably not message you any more that day. You must respect your bowel, and give yourself time to use the toilet each morning.

Simple Water Cure For Detox and Constipation:  Enemas of course, are great for their immediate effect in clearing the bowels, and for supplying water to nourish and cleanse the intestines.  But here is a method for using water orally to clear the intestines of effete matter.  The method is to fast for three days, eating nothing except perhaps some stewed apple in the mornings.

Every hour throughout the day, take a cup of boiled water which is still hot, but sufficiently cooled to drink. Keep this practice up for three days.  About the third day, your bowels will clear themselves of any obstructions and effete matter. then you can begin eating again, starting with light meals of cooked vegetables and raw or stewed fruit, rice, and pulses.

Second Method  Using Water For Curing Non-Chronic Constipation

This is actually a Yoga exercise which can be found in Swami Satyananda Saraswati’ book ‘Asana, Pranayama, Mudra, Bandha’ published first in 1969, Bihar School of Yoga, India.

It is very simple to do, and you do not have to be practicing yoga for it to be beneficial.  Hopefully, if you are new to yoga,  this exercise might spark off a life-long study of yoga to aid your health.

Method:  First drink six cups of water in one sitting.  Then stand in the ‘Heavenly Stretch’ pose, or ‘Tadasana’.  This posture starts standing erect, the feet apart by several inches.  Clasp the fingers together and raise up the hands with fingers interlocked, above the head, palms facing upward.

Stretch the hands upward toward the sky, breathing in, and lift the heels off the floor.  Normally, you would do several motions, lifting the heels up off the floor, hands upward, as you breathe in, then breathing out, you would lower arms and heels together.  But we do this exercise a little differently  for the purpose of helping the bowels.

Instead of doing several up and down movements, you hold the pose on tip-toes, whilst you walk on tip-toe for 100 paces, holding the arms above the head, with hands upward to the sky.

Satyananda recommends this exercise for the first six months of pregnancy.  It helps keep the back strong, tones the legs, and stretches the intestines.

This alone is an effective cure for constipation  All the muscles in the lower abdomen get worked with the  combination of stretching upward and walking at the same time.  Drinking the water before you begin is important. This will usually encourage a bowel movement within a few hours.

How A Patient Was Cured Of Constipation and Laxative Dependency:  Dr Frank Hurdle gives some advice on how to avoid using laxatives, which weakens  the responses of the intestines.  He had a patient who had taken laxatives for many years, and who had what seemed an incurable dependency on these drugs.  Dr Hurdle devised a plan to get this man off the laxatives.  He told him to stop taking them and begin drinking plenty of water, for a start.   Next, he  advised him also to exercise on a daily basis.

The main dietary requirement was that the patient had to eat a large bowl of pure bran each morning, before eating anything else.  The fourth requisite was for his patient to tell himself each night at bed-time, that he would have a bowel movement first thing in the morning.  This affirmation was repeated every night faithfully, and the bowl of bran taken dutifully each morning, with plenty of fluids taken through the day.  The result was that the patient was cured of his ‘laxative habit’, and never had to resort to using laxatives ever again.

Home Remedies For Constipation and Homeopathic Treatment

Help Clear Toxins Naturally With Homeopathy: “All Sickness Begins In the Bowel”. Homeopathy can normalize your intestinal functions which will improve your general health.  The old saying which says that : “All sickness begins in the bowel” happens to be  true. In curing any disease, the first thing in wholistic medicine is to clear the bowels and normalize their functioning.

No Cancer Notebook small

The bowel is responsible for many things.  The processing of food and the absorption of life-giving elements is one of the main functions of the bowel.  But the other main function, which concerns many of us from time to time, is the elimination of the waste products after the food has been processed.

Now it is important for these waste products to move quickly through the intestines.  Agricultural chemicals, and chemicals found in processed foods, make it even more important that the elimination processes work well, as when these chemicals sit around in the bowels, disease will set in.

If the action of the intestines is too slow, which results in constipation, then you will be absorbing the toxins from those waste products back through the walls of your intestines and into the blood.  This happens when the material in the bowel sits around for too long. If this is a habitual thing, then the poor cells of your body become poisoned over time, and weakened.  The liver  becomes overloaded, as it cannot rid the body of these poisons which are continually being fed back to it through the blood.  This state of constipation  sets the stage for degenerative diseases such as cancer and arthritis, or multiple sclerosis and parkinson’s disease, to take hold.  You are also more susceptible to contracting infectious diseases such as the flu virus when your intestines are clogged.

Fasting and Roughage: This is why fasting occasionally, and taking remedial measures to keep those bowels functioning efficiently, is very very important.  Fasting regularly on raw fruits and vegetables and their juices, and eating plenty of raw salad material each day, which provide roughage and vital enzymes,   can do a lot towards preventing constipation, and preventing  cancer.

Drink Plenty of Water:  Many people suffer constipation because they forget to drink enough water, or any at all.  If you are a big coffee drinker, then you need to drink at least an equivalent amount of water compared to the volume of coffee you imbibe.  Coffee is dehydrating, and being dehydrated is one of the common causes of constipation.

So – You need to pay attention to the diet to prevent constipation, and  drink plenty of water to keep those bowels running smoothly and keep your health good.

The Grated Apple and Potato  Cure:  To Be Taken Before Meals: This is a very simply home remedy for constipation.  The recipe provides much roughage to clean the bowel out, and it also provides plenty of healing vitamins, minerals,  and pectin to nourish and heal the bowel.  A good amount of Vitamin C is taken into the body by using this apple and potato cure on a regular basis. All you do is grate one whole, washed potato, with its skin still on; then grate one apple, skin and all.  Mix the two together and eat the whole lot 20 minutes before breakfast.  Then repeat the whole procedure before lunch, or before the evening meal if you prefer.

This is very healthy for the body and the intestines.  It helps to prevent candida occurring, and will help your hair, teeth, bones and nails to stay healthy. You can keep doing the apple and potato cure indefinitely.  You will never get scurvy or constipation again.

As well as these dietary measures, you can do a lot to cure constipation and restore the regular functioning of the bowel by the taking of a Homeopathic remedy.  Three of the most effective Homeopathic remedies for constipation are  Nux vomica (called Nux vom.), Natrum muriaticum (called Nat. mur), and Graphites.

Dosage for Nux vomica: This is a good remedy if the patient is  sensitive and a bit run down and depressed.  Often there is a nervousness, and  sensitiveness to cold:  the patient feels chilly. These people often like stimulants such as coffee, tea and alcohol.  The Nux vomica remedy helps to counteract the effects of  these stimulants.  Menstruation is often copious with the period beginning early and lasting longer than usual.  A 6X dose can be taken several times a day, for several days or until the problem ceases.  The  30C potency would be taken once  a day.  Stop taking the remedy when you are better.  The 6C or 12 C potencies, can be bought at most health food stores, and some pharmacies.

How To Order Homeopathic Remedies: Weleda Products in Havelock North, Hastings area, New Zealand, make homeopathic preparations and also grow their own organic herbs and plants for the use in their medicines.  I like to support the Weleda brand whenever I can, as  they have a long tradition of making homeopathic remedies, and so their homeopathics are the ‘true blue’ and unadulterated recipes.

Castor Oil is a famous home remedy for constipation.  Castor Oil is a wonderful rejuvenator of the liver.  It is used in many  alternative cancer treatment programmes.  It is also used to help people with arthritis.  Cancer and arthritis can develop because of a life-time of constipation and clogged, toxic bowels. The fact that  this famous bowel remedy  is used to treat and cure cancer is indicative of the relationship between toxicity in the bowel and cancer.  A healthy, clean bowel  which is free of toxins will serve as an immunity against cancer and degenerative disease.

In treating serious degenerative conditions such as cancer and arthritis, Dr Gerson used 2 tablespoons of castor oil every second day for many months.  But of course, this dose would not be used by ordinary people for the sake of treating constipation.

Dose Of Castor Oil For Constipation for when the bowels are clogged. One or two tablespoons could be taken in the morning, followed by a cup of ginger tea, or black coffee, or chamomile tea.  This could be taken once a week as a remedial measure, to help to clear toxins from the liver as well as the intestines.  I believe castor oil is a preventative of cancer, arthritis, and other diseases, because of the fact that it attracts poisons to it.  This has a deep cleansing effect of the tissues throughout the body, not just in the intestines.

Vitamin C For Constipation:  Use 1000mg of calcium ascorbate, which is a non-acidic type of Vitamin C.  Take with a large glass of water.  Repeat the dose four hourly until you get results.  A remedial dose of Vitamin C can be taken regularly – 1000mg per day should work to keep those bowels regular.  Remember to take plenty of water with it.

Tamarind for Constipation: Tamarind is used in Indian cooking.  It is a complement to the curry spices.  Tamarind is an effective laxative.  Take half a teaspoon in a glass of hot water.  It is necesary to take a glass of milk, or yoghurt, or coconut milk straight afterwards, as tamarind tends to draw out calcium, as it is high in oxalic acid.  Milk of any kind, and fats and oils, help prevent this happening.

Grape Diet For Cancer

Grapes As Part of Cancer Treatment:

My friend Bernhard Petersen, who left his physical body less than a month ago, is still working here on earth as a healer. He has just given me some advice for another friend who has cancer.  Bernhard himself used grapes for healing.  He grew an abundance of them which even came inside his house at Waiheke Island.

This friend has had his pancreas removed, only a few months ago. He has just had scans done, and has been told that he has cancer in other parts of his body. Well, with the medical profession about to give up, as there is not much more they can do to help my friend using orthodox treatment, it really is about time to get cracking on detoxifying and maximizing nutrition so that the body may stand a chance of recovering.

Having organs removed from the body is not considered the best thing in alternative therapies: There almost always is cancer in other parts of the body, and so removing one part of it is not going to cure the condition. Far better to aim at clearing the vital organs of cancer so that you have these organs for the benefit of your health when you recover. Nevertheless, there is much that can be done to detoxify the body and prevent the cancer from growing. Cancer CAN be reversed.

Using castor oil, as in the Gerson method for treating cancer, would be the quickest, most efficient way to get those poisons eliminated very quickly.

However, when the body is so toxic, as it always is with developed cancers, one needs to be careful when you are detoxifying without the ongoing help of a professional therapist. Ideally, one would go to a cancer clinic, such as an Ann Wigmore clinic, or a Max Gerson clinic, but this live-in therapy, where one would have expert attention almost 100% of the time, is very costly. So we have to prepare a method and a programme which is manageable and do-able at home.


Another message came through from another friend: H …..WILL RECOVER WITH.. CLEANSING. CASTOR OIL IS VERY IMPORTANT

The Grape Diet:

Note: You MUST find organic, unsprayed grapes. Look around for an unsprayed source in someone’s back garden. There will be a friend of a friend around somewhere who will be able to help you out. Alternatively, you could buy organic grapes from a health food store, but these will be costly, considering the amount you will need to eat.

So – Bernhard recommends doing a grape diet for ten days to begin with: Eat as many grapes as you like. Whenever hungry, eat grapes. Eating just grapes, without any other food, and without doing anything else at this stage, apart from using enemas daily. I would take an enema whenever I felt nauseous, or was experiencing any other kind of physical upset. I found, when treating a breast lump with a raw food diet, castor oil and enemas, that using an enema really helped to alleviate pain or nausea or dizzyness, as these symptoms were usually the result of toxins overloading the intestines as they were released from the liver. Using water enemas, with just a quarter of a teaspoon of sea salt each time, flushed away these poisons very quickly, which had the immediate effect of dissipating any feelings of sickness. Make sure you use natural sea salt, and just a pinch or two.  Do not use table salt, as this has additives in it which will get absorbed through the bowel walls.

More about this tomorrow:  Ten days initially on the grape diet.  Eat as many as you like.  Use enemas daily – does not have to be a coffee enema.  Just warm, purified water with a pinch of sea salt will do the trick. Then we can look at other procedures.

Regrow Your Tooth Enamel

The Key Points Of The Diet To Regrow Teeth:

DSCO 1845

I have just had a comment from Becca who is attempting to improve her teeth with diet.  Here is a summary for Becca and for anyone else interested in working on diet to help the condition of the teeth.

It takes a while to regrow tooth enamel, so you have to be prepared to follow the programme for at least 6 months.  My child’s tooth enamel repaired itself after 9 months on such a programme.

My friend who came for advice about her diseased gums recovered completely after only 3 months on the diet.  However, in this case, the tooth enamel itself was not the problem, but her diseased gums:  She was told by a dental specialist that she would lose all of her teeth if she did not have them all removed one by one and scraped.  Each tooth was going to cost $5,000 to fix.  After three months of putting all her energies into the diet and getting well, she went back to the dentist to show him the result.  He said that there couldn’t have been anything wrong with her teeth if she had got better by diet alone, even though it was HIS diagnosis that said she had an incurable gum disease in the first place.

Of course, there are multiple ways in which you can improve the health of your gums and strengthen tooth enamel. Here is just one suggested method, which is similar to that method which we followed.

Merrilyn’s new book is available on Amazon:


  • Remove sugar, dairy foods and wheat altogether.  Avoiding gluten is important.
  • Stay Gluten Free: Instead of wheat pasta and bread, use brown rice.
  • Avoid vinegar and other fermented foods. No alcohol.  No sauces such as tomato sauce, or soy sauce. It is important to avoid fermented foods, as well as gluten, dairy and sugar, because these foods feed candida, or yeast infection.  Candida albicans is the source of many problems with health, including poor gums and teeth.
  • No preservatives.
  • EAT LOTS OF RAW  CELERY and CARROTS;  The other key factor in regrowing your tooth enamel and improving the health of your gums is to eat lots of RAW CELERY and CARROTS.  End each meal with these. This improves digestion, as well as the health of the teeth.
  • KEEP THE MOUTH ALKALINE:  Chew a stick of celery after each meal to keep the mouth alkaline.  Celery is a natural germicide and antibiotic which will keep those tooth-eating beasties in check. Celery will help to discourage those damaging bacteria which cause decay.
  • Celery is well known for its ability to help build strong bones:  It helps to build strong teeth as well.
  • Celery is a high fiber alkaline food.   Eating raw celery and carrots too, helps to provide plenty of fiber for your digestion. Your intestines will be cleansed by eating these raw foods, which means that they will process your foods more efficiently.
  • Eat as much of your food raw as you can.  Begin sprouting mung beans and alfalfa at home.  Mung bean sprouts and alfalfa sprouts are especially alkaline.  These clean the teeth as well, keep the mouth alkaline, and provide more fiber for the bowel.
  • All protein foods are OK. Eating meat will not do your teeth any harm as long as you eat enough alkaline salads and cooked greens to go with it. Generally speaking, high quality protein is good for those on anti candida diets. Protein eaten with raw foods will help your teeth to grow. If you are vegetarian, then make sure your protein is adequate:  supplement with plenty of sprouts, nuts and seeds and pulses.
  • Organic free range eggs are excellent.  Try to eat two free range egg yolks each day.  This is very nourishing for the body and easy on the digestion.  You can include these with your olive oil dressing for your salad, or put them into a smoothie such as a banana smoothie with almonds, sesame or sunflower seeds.  Two raw egg yolks per day is recommended for vegetarians especially.
  • Use plenty of sesame seeds and sunflower seeds,  and coconut milk, especially if you are on a vegetarian diet. These are all very high in calcium and essential fatty acids.
  • All raw and cooked vegetables are good.
  • Always eat something raw with every meal.

It takes a while to notice the effects of such a programme, especially to regrow tooth enamel. If you really put the effort into following this diet, and faithfully exclude wheat, dairy, sugar, and yeasts, then you should see some positive results  on your general health after about three months.  If you were to continue on for another 6 months beyond that, you should see your tooth enamel beginning to repair itself.

Calcium Ascorbate Powder: This is a non-acidic form of Vitamin C which helps keep the body alkaline.  It also kills bacteria and works as a potent digestive which maximizes your vitamin and mineral intake from the food you eat. It helps to detoxify the body.

Calcium Ascorbate was used in treating my friend’s gum problem.  My family also used this quite frequently, which would have helped my child to regrow tooth enamel.    You need to take at least 1000 mg once or twice per day.

Castor Oil Treatment: People on cancer diets who have regrown their tooth enamel have used castor oil as part of their treatment.  I think that taking castor oil even once a week will have a beneficial effect on your teeth.  However, if the person is young, or healthy, with a strong recuperative power, regrowing tooth enamel can be done without castor oil.
