I started having a tooth sensitivity at one point about a year ago, and I went straight to the farm and bought some raw goat's yogurt. I fnished it in a week, and haven't had a problem with it since.
To Heal a Cavity:
1. Ditch your toothpaste that contains glycerin (prevents remineralisation of teeth), which is everything you can find in ANY store, with the exception of Eco-Dent or other brand tooth powders, which still has silica (abrasive). I'm still using it but thinking of switching to colostrum tooth powder.
2. Start taking fermented cod liver oil and high vitamin butter oil (vitamin K) (Weston A. Price discovered these little gems) and eat grass fed raw butter if available.
3. Watch the magic.

I'd be interested in finding a convenient alternative to toothpaste. I'm not about to start mixing up complicated concoctions or ordering stuff off the internet that could be found cheaper at the supermarket.
I've heard various theories but not sure which are the essential ingredients. Baking soda? Calcium powder? Could you just brush your teeth with peppermint oil? Or butter?

I might have to try this. I have no dental insurance at the moment.
I've also been trying oil pulling with coconut oil - basically gargle with coconut oil for 20-30 minutes while getting ready for bed.

Ok this is just friggin stupid already. I am a dentist so I know a bit about teeth and toothpaste. Just use any fluoride toothpaste and get regular checkups every 6 months. If you have a cavity get it filled. There are no magic potions to heal a cavity. I am all for primal but sometimes people make things too complicated. Just brush your teeth and see a dentist every 6 months ( and floss) that's it nice and simple. The fluoride in toothpaste won't hurt you unless you plan on swallowing a large amount of it. This is what rinsing and spitting are for. What's next primal floss. Seriously
Teeth can remineralize and negate the need for fillings. This was observed in dozens of cases by Weston A Price and other dentists decades ago.
