who understand the decay/healing process know that it is a whole lot
easier for tooth enamel to lose mineral content than it is to
re-absorb those same minerals, repairing the damage from the loss.
Due to the several factors involved in the process of
everything must come together at the right place with perfect
timing...another one of nature's delicate balancing acts.
One thing you can do to help out is to keep the surface of the tooth
clean - right down to the microscopic level - where it all takes place.
We believe that using our Nara
Cleansing Powder is an excellent way in helping you to achieve that.
since Närä Natural Tooth Cleansing Powder was introduced in 2005, there
has been an 8 oz. size, but available only in Peppermint.
Due to demand, more

When you think about the type of work that dentists do to
with your teeth and
gums, it doesn't seem like the profession has
really advanced all that much over the past hundred years or so.
Certainly there have been improvements in the dentist's tools and
materials, but the basic procedures and 'final products' tend to remain

do it properly so the filling doesn't leak. Sure, there are
which might do a better job at cleaning decayed enamel and newer
materials to replace the old silver-mercury amalgams, but they are
still 'drilling and filling,' essentially.
Of course, we have been promoting the concept of self-healing and doing
the best we can to avoid the dentist in the first place. Even so, there
are dentists who still scoff at the idea that the teeth and gums have
the ability to heal themselves, under anyconditions.
In the next few years those same dentists may well be eating their
words and treating decayed teeth with an 'accelerated self-healing'
technique while their drills are sitting in the back room

the oxymoron list.
time you invest more money to buy healthier beef, there’s a chance
that you end up getting less quality than what you paid for.
To Make Sure Your Grass-Fed Beef Is, In Fact, Grass-Fed
Nick Pineaul, Creator
and Author of The
Truth About Fat Burning Foods
probably already know that grass-fed beef has nothing to do with its
feedlot-raised, grain-fed cousin that’s sold in supermarkets on the
fact, grass-fed beef contains 2 to 4 times more omega-3 (essential
fatty acids), 4 times more vitamin A and E, a lot more conjugated
linoleic acid/CLA (a natural fat burner), and less fat and calories
per pound than regular grain-fed beef you buy at the supermarket.
animals are considerably healthier than grain-fed ones, which means
that farmers don’t have to use part of the 15
million pounds of antibiotics used on grain-fed cattle just to
prevent them from getting sick.
buying quality meat becomes a great idea to improve your own health
and support local farms that care about animals.
what label claim do you look for at your local Whole Foods to find
out it’s really not that clear.
the last couple of years, the labeling regulations have changed quite
a lot in the beef industry.
But of course, very few customers know that.
manufacturers are able to sell grass-fed beef that has been
“grain-finished” as 100% grass-fed beef.
some farmers will feed their cattle grass for most of their lifespan,
but “finish” them with grains in the last months before sending
them to the slaughterhouse.
the last 90 to 160 days of diet determine how much nutrition your
big, juicy steak will contain, this process removes any benefits the
initial grass diet might have had.
your beef needs to be both grass-fed and
grass-finished to contain all the nutrition it’s supposed to.
because those claims are still not regulated by the USDA, your best
insurance is to develop a relationship with a farmer that raises beef
the right way.

These days, it seems the mainstream media is always screaming about the

more often than not, the “research” behind these headlines has been
funded, manipulated, and packaged by Big Pharma.

Last month, mid-June, The
Washington Post reported on a new treatment for tooth decay, developed
by researchers at King's College London. The 'treatment' takes
advantage of the body's natural ability for teeth to heal themselves,
but speeds up that healing process. The procedure...
that facilitates natural tooth healing?
This was my immediate reaction
to reading the Washinton Post story concerning the work of researchers,
Professor Nigel Pitts and Dr. Chris Longbottom, based in the Dental Institute
Their procedure involves applying a small, imperceptible electrical
current to the site on the tooth's surface, which has lost more mineral
content than it has taken in during it's
of leaching and absorbing calcium and phosphorus ions.
The site of this imbalanced
loss of minerals is commonly referred to as a carious lesion, or cavity.
electrical current is utilized in such a way as to accelerate the body's
natural process of mineral absorption (re-mineralization), thereby
allowing the tooth to heal as it naturally would -- only much
faster. The technique is known as Electrically Accelerated and Enhanced
Normally, a dentist would
locate the site of the lesion, or cavity, drill out the decay which
surrounds it and fill it with either an amalgam or composite material
in order to fill in the 'hole'.
According to Professor Pitts,
"The way we treat teeth today is not ideal – when we
repair a tooth by putting in a filling, that tooth enters a cycle of
drilling and re-filling as, ultimately, each 'repair' fails."
Pitts and Longbottom have
formed an enterprise known as Reminova, Ltd.,
based in Scotland, and expect to bring the technique to the European
market within three years. Having it available to the U.S. market is
expected to take longer, due to 'a different regulatory climate'.
Obviously, keeping the teeth in
such an optimal state, where tooth decay simply does not occur, would
be ideal and we should strive for that. Unfortunately, and despite the
profession's best efforts at preventing it, tooth decay is epidemic and
While we wait on EAER to start
going mainstream, we're going to have to rely on the body's natural

Oil Pulling: Two Prominent
Registered Dental Hygienists Share Their Thoughts
I really never put much stock
in oil pulling. I've tried it but found that it was a little too
time consuming and inconvenient, however, I didn't feel I could make a
call with no amount of empirical evidence. I do have a long-time
customer who swears by it, or did, anyway.
I recently came across the
following video discussion on the topic by two highly regarded hygiene
professionals and decided to settle in and watch the talk. I
found it very enlightening and unbiased.
