    So grateful to have discovered the research in this book. After a year of being frustrated with my daughter's tooth decay despite a healthy diet and regular brushing/flossing, I now have hope. After 2 months of following this diet the best we could (raw dairy, cod liver oil, lots of veggies, organic meats, little fruit, low grains, and pretty much no sugar) her decay stopped and two of her cavities healed completely. The dentist was shocked as he crossed those two off her chart and told me to ke So grateful to have discovered the research in this book.

The dentist was shocked as he crossed those two off her chart and told me to keep up whatever I was doing. Nutrition amazes me and I wish this knowledge was more well known! Praying we can continue to keep this up and that the days of painful/traumatic toddler root canals are over!

    There are some interesting ideas in here and I think I'm going to start implementing some of the nutritional recommendations into my diet, however there were a few things I just couldn't get over. Ramiel Nagel says, "For many, but not for all, vegetarianism is a masked form of a denial of life. Somewhere deep within you, you believe that life is suffering, and you want to suffer.

Superficially, vegetarianism is a good way to minimize impact on the planet, not harm animals, and to get a high and light feeling from avoiding the seemingly burdensome animal foods. Deeper down, you are suffering." WTF? Also, there were at least a hundred grammatical errors. Where was the editor of this book?!

    There is a lot of good information here, but also a lot of personal beliefs hammered in over and over and some bad information mixed in. I gave it 4 stars because the good stuff is material you just don't tend to find elsewhere (I've never seen most of it anywhere). It's reasonably well documented but ultimately very one-note. It's all about diet. Which doesn't add up, but I'll agree diet is very important. Unfortunately, his examples of cultures with good teeth are all very dairy-centric ones.

It's all about diet. Which doesn't add up, but I'll agree diet is very important. Unfortunately, his examples of cultures with good teeth are all very dairy-centric ones. So his proposed diet is huge with dairy (we're talking a quart of milk and several oz of cheese, every day, plus butter). To the point where he insists that dairy is necessary for dental health. Never mind that most of the world does not eat dairy (or didn't before modernization/Westernization). Somehow, all those examples got lost in translation. The idea of someone reacting to dairy? Why it's just that they aren't using the good stuff, raw and grass-fed and low processed. Yeah, I've heard that one before. For a few people, it's true. For most of us with dairy intolerance, it's B.S. He does give a quick nod to actual dairy intolerance in the section on children, but it's less than a paragraph. His diet is also all about meat. Just like with the dairy, he focuses on truly healthy, humanely raised, meat. That's fine, except not everyone chooses to eat meat. He does have a decent vegetarian version but it's really heavy in dairy. He is rather insulting to vegans (I'm not a vegan but I felt insulted). The majority of the book is about what you should and shouldn't eat (mostly a couple very specific products, plus meat, seafood, and dairy). The rest is fascinating. There's a lot on what mainstream dental treatments actually do to your teeth and the rest of your body. Plus detail about accessing the need for dentist intervention and alternatives. There is an entire section on children's teeth as well. Only a few parts cover what I hoped much of the book would be about: herbs, supplements, tooth care, etc. It also only has one small chapter on gum health, which is mostly why I wanted to read the book. Over all, it's worth reading, you just have to take some of his claims with a few grains of salt (but hey, you can brush your teeth with that salt!).

    This book is written by a father after his daughter's teeth crumbled out of her mouth. He did a bunch of research to try to save her teeth (his teeth were also failing ... made me wonder about their drinking water, etc.). The book is heavily reliant on the ideas of Weston A. Price.

I have mixed feelings about Price. He has some good things to offer, but much from his foundation is extreme and unrealistic. This book suffered the same problem but in much worse fashion. The man who wrote the book isn't well-versed in research or in understanding it. He cherry-picks his data and makes absurd claims (including that sugar combats bacteria as well as if not better than xylitol ... seriously). The most revealing part was at the end of the book when there was a question from someone saying, "How can I do your remedy as it costs so much?" The remedy has to do with eating all kinds of special (and expensive) cod liver oil, grass-fed pastured butter and liver, and bone broths ... on and on. Quite pricy (pun intended). His answer? Well, duh, just start farming your land and grow your own food. Or, if you can't do that, go ask for the organs from your local butcher (of grass-fed animals, of course) and get them for cheap. Or go to the docks and ask the fishermen if you can have their fish guts pail. You could get it for free, and think of all the nutrition! Sorry, but this just isn't a realistic approach to health for teeth or anything else. Do I recommend this book? Nope. I just can't. As a researcher, I was appalled at this book from the introduction clear to the end. If you're already totally sold on the ideas from the Price foundation, then this book might really appeal to you.

    I had extreme tooth sensitivity for over a year. It was so bad that I couldn't open my mouth outside in the winter or else I'd have an instant tooth ache. After 2 weeks on the prescribed diet, my tooth sensitivity disappeared. I also have, what mainstream dentists call, a dead tooth. My "dead tooth" made my whole head ache for weeks. The vast majority of dentists would recommend a root canal, but I have decided to try to heal my tooth with diet.

I have followed the advice for tooth infections for 2 months now and I have noticed significant results. I no longer get tooth aches and my overall health has improved. This book has been an invaluable source of information. Thank you, Ramiel Nagel!

    To cure tooth decay, Ramiel Nagel used the research of the dentists Weston A Price and Melvin Page to heal himself and his daughter. Price focused on principles he found in all “native” diets around the world that were cavity free and Page focused on diet and body chemistry. Nagel adds reflexology to the protocol with the intention to help balance the glands thus balancing the blood chemistry thus helping with the correct flow of the fluids in teeth thus aiding in healthy teeth. Nagel discusses To cure tooth decay, Ramiel Nagel used the research of the dentists Weston A Price and Melvin Page to heal himself and his daughter. Price focused on principles he found in all “native” diets around the world that were cavity free and Page focused on diet and body chemistry. Nagel adds reflexology to the protocol with the intention to help balance the glands thus balancing the blood chemistry thus helping with the correct flow of the fluids in teeth thus aiding in healthy teeth. Nagel discusses the false theory that regular brushing alone prevents cavities. The work of the said dentists busted that theory before it should have been started. He gives a fair look at what is involved in root canals and removing teeth. He gives lists of foods that must be avoided and foods that must be included daily to stop tooth decay and build a new layer of enamel. These foods aren’t new to followers of WAP and the cookbook Nourishing Traditions, however Nagel focuses on certain ones that are more specific in healing teeth. Besides the old stand-bys of cod liver oil, butter oil, bone broths grass fed raw milk, raw wild fish and grass fed meat (organs too) and pastured raw eggs, he emphasizes bone marrow and celery/parsley juice. He shows x-rays of teeth building a new layer of enamel. Nagel consoles the reader for problems they might have had with their children and dentists. He constantly urges the reader to listen to her instincts and pray and ponder what is best for her to do. He gives lots of resources and references to look up additional information. Cure Tooth Decay is an easy and inspiring read.

I have been taking 2 capsules as it says on the bottle. To prevent cavities and heal the body you must take 7-10!!! I need to confirm this with WAPF. -Obtaining oats that have not been destroyed is impossible, don't eat oats. -A bone broth soup should be eaten every day or every other day. -If you are going to eat sugar, including fruit, eat it with a fat (e.g. apples and cheese, berries and cream). -This book is the WAPF diet but errs on the side of Primal over WAPF. As in, eat WAPF, but if you are not healthy enough or your teeth are struggling, go Primal. And if you can't handle Primal, at least go GAPS. Super interesting.

When I first got it, I was desperate for WHAT DO I DO!! after my 2 yo inexplicably developed severe cavities and a gum abscess after we had been meticulously taking care of her teeth and visiting the dentist every 3 months for almost a year. The first several chapters include thoughts on prayers, motivational thinking, and how modern dentistry works. That's all good and fine, but I wanted practical steps right away. I ended up skipping all the way to the bonus chapter on healing childhood decay, starting to implement that advice, and later went back to read the rest of the book. There is a lot of great information in there, some of which complemented what we were already doing and others that didn't apply but would be good to know for the future (the ineffectiveness of braces, for example). I just really wish the book had started with a "quick start" chapter. I was already feeling lost and powerless, I didn't need a chapter to remind me of it. Once you get to the meat of the book, however, it's amazing. We have at the very least slowed my daughter's decay if not halted it. If you don't like having conventional wisdom challenged, you are going to have a hard time with this. The results, however, speak for themselves. There are tons of blogs out there now that are photographing remineralization of teeth. It is possible, so I definitely recommend picking up this book. There is a support Facebook group online for additional insights from others who have been there. If you or your children are struggling with decay even though you think you are doing everything right, there is hope!

Once these indigenous people adopt a Western diet, the tooth decay isn't far behind. It frustrates me that more people don't know about this stuff, unless it's all a bunch of crap.

    Nagel has some interesting ideas, and some common-sense advice (like 'don't eat sugar'). But everything he says is called into question by his assertion that "vaccines promote tooth decay", and that there "is no evidence of their success". He says to "seek natural replacements and alternatives." This is just so nutty and unscientific that I can't believe anything else he says. Anyone who promotes the view that vaccines cause autism/tooth decay/pick-an-ailment need only look to history and think Nagel has some interesting ideas, and some common-sense advice (like 'don't eat sugar').

He says to "seek natural replacements and alternatives." This is just so nutty and unscientific that I can't believe anything else he says. Anyone who promotes the view that vaccines cause autism/tooth decay/pick-an-ailment need only look to history and think on the fact that we don't have to worry about dying of small pox, or polio, or any number of other diseases that modern science has freed us from.

I was very interested in his book, even suggested at one point, I must say that following his diet besides the fact that doesn't heal your teeth really it makes you larger and fat; The author himself is a live proof of it, the guy has another body afterwards of course but if you don't intend to go up few sizes be aware and please there is no such a thing as a diet to heal teeth like this; We are not teeth only and all the animal fat products he recommends, in my opinion, is beyond highly rich in calories and saturated fat; this is NOT what Weston Price meant by a whole healthy life style and diet at all and that we can NOT translate literally like he does; It was a life style in a different world and pace when killing animals was for survival purposes, people had meals with their families, lived in the country side, spent much of their lives outdoors i.e. farmers, mountain people, ate what they NEED, had different needs and realities; So my dear friend, if you are a woman specially and intend to follow this fellow, be prepared to gain a large waist line and some high quality cellulite and perhaps even a heart condition. Jump out while you can and find a better balance to heal your WHOLE body and teeth. Eating a whole diet the best we can, getting some exercises regularly, keeping hygiene and a happy heart and mind, searching according to your personal needs. Best luck on your journey.

    This book has a wealth of information regarding healing and preventing tooth decay. Using these practices we stopped decay in one of my son's baby teeth that hadn't formed properly.

Using these practices we stopped decay in one of my son's baby teeth that hadn't formed properly. He had a very large spot that was discolored and going soft--it is hard and shiny now. My own oral health has improved as well. Many of the recommendations in the book will support overall health, too, and can be incorporated into long term habits. Most recommendations are dietary such as avoiding grains (if tooth decay is present), avoiding sugar and too much fruit, and including foods rich in tooth building nutrients like raw milk, organ meats, bone broth and cod liver oil. Not all recommendations need to be followed, you can customize to suit your needs. He also discusses the problems with conventional dental treatments, which can be very enlightening to those unaware of how dangerous the toxic dental materials are. It will really inspire you to take care of your and your children's teeth! Overall the book is more hopeful--knowing you can prevent or stop decay--but a little depressing if you've been living with health problems as a result of toxic dental materials in your mouth. I wish this book could have contained more info on the things he discusses, only because I want to know the whys and hows about everything, but then the book would have been an encyclopedia. I guess that's what references are for--and he includes quite a number of those.

Making some of these changes will be very difficult for my husband, as he has trained himself well. I'm determined to make them though, because of the long term benefits of maintaining healthy teeth, and it is cheaper than extensive dental work.

He's a huge advocate for fermented cod liver oil and royal butter. Cod liver oil is the greatest natural source of of fat soluble vitamins A and D, not to mention Omega 3,6,7, & 9. Just recently I have been taking it, as well as my mom and we have noticed some pleasant results.

    Well-researched, nicely organized study of the true causes of tooth decay. Nagal says "with few exceptions, modern dentistry is an inhumane system." I never really thought of it that way, especially not until recent personal questions popped up and after reading this book.

The dietary principles are extreme, taking traditional food to a perhaps new level even. Even having a good background in traditional foods, this was still an eye-opening read.

    I learned so much from this book. There were a lot of "a-ha!" moments of things that just made sense to me. I'm not going to change my diet to the level that he suggests, but we have made some great improvements since then. The Logan library has it. I learned so much from this book.

    This book has revolutionized how I look at dental health and helped me make a lot of dietary changes. It was very empowering and helpful to me.

    It totally works. I was diagnosed with a cavity this summer. I refused to get it filled and instead followed the advise in this book. Went to the dentist today and the cavity is GONE!

    Good information in a not-so-great writing style. Reviews the biochemistry involved with food nutrients, and goes in to the dubious history of the American Dental world which was really irreputable. Glosses over (but does mention) some other useful techniques like oil-pulling. A really good reference to keep around - especially for parents with children who have cavities.

    Absolutely amazing book. It gives all the foods you need to eat to heal your tooth naturally. It demystifies all the myths about tooth Decay. And trust me, most of the stuff you know about tooth is wrong. I recommend all the people (with or without tooth decay) to read this book. "Prevention is better than cure"!! Absolutely amazing book.

    It was interesting; I think he is on the right track. I plan to share this book with my nephew who is studying to be a dentist. If some traditional dentists were interested in reviewing this book, I would be most interested in what they had to say.

    A lot of interesting information but the regime seems very complicated, extreme, expensive, and hard to implement. I tried it for over a month and then finally quit because it was giving me increasingly bad TMJ pain.

    It works. Can't believe I'm actually saying it, but I cured a cavity. Makes me kind of angry, actually. Why aren't dentists telling us this is possible??? It works.

    This book introduced to me a whole new way of eating and caring for my body. One of the best health books I've ever read. This book introduced to me a whole new way of eating and caring for my body. One of the best health books I've ever read.

    Definitely not my ideal diet, but it works. I was able to save two teeth from root canals within 4 weeks of implementing the plan. I could not believe it.
