Cure Gum Disease Naturally

Cure Gum Disease Naturally: Heal and Prevent Periodontal Disease and Gingivitis with Whole Foods
By Ramiel Nagel

The food we consume strongly influences the quality of our lives. If we eat the processed and devitalized foods of modern commerce our physical, emotional, and spiritual health will suffer. Eating whole unprocessed foods grown on fertile soil, without pesticides…and prepared in a traditional manner, will aid us in obtaining optimum health and a sense of wellbeing.

The condition of our teeth and gums is a good indicator of how healthy or unhealthy the rest of our bodies are. Ramiel Nagel, the author of Cure Tooth Decay and this book, Cure Gum Disease Naturally: Heal and Prevent Periodontal Disease and Gingivitis with Whole Foods has this to say on page 31. “ In general tooth decay and gum disease are the most visible signs of nutrient depletion. By ignoring how nutrition affects our bodies and by blaming bacteria for dental health problems, the field of dentistry does us a great disservice by diverting us from the truth of how a poor diet causes gum disease and tooth decay.”

In Cure Gum Disease Naturally, Ramiel shares with the reader the underlying causes of tooth decay and gum disease and how to cure these conditions, which are merely a reflection of the general health of the body. As we have already established, diet plays an enormous role in establishing the health of the teeth and gums. Rami thoroughly explains why it is not bacteria, in and of itself, that causes tooth decay and gum problems, but that the condition and strength of the teeth and gums themselves determines how vulnerable they are to the normal oral bacteria found in the mouth. He educates us as to what foods to avoid and what foods to eat in order to create strong, firm teeth and gums that are resistant to bacteria. The mainstream dental model merely tries to fix the symptoms of poor nutrition rather than educating the patient on how to balance his body chemistry through proper nutrition.

The author explains, “gum disease is a whole body imbalance and not just an isolated oral problem. Dr. Page observed that out-of-balance calcium and phosphorous ratios (which he believed to be the cause of tooth and gum disease) could be brought into balance by correcting the functioning of the glandular system.”  “ Dr. Page found that our autonomic (automatic) nervous system and our endocrine (glandular/hormonal) system are directly affected by the food we eat.” On page 44 the author lists ways to help improve the health of specific glands.

Rami advises us to strictly reduce sugar since this toxic refined substance throws the calcium phosphorous ratio and our glandular system out of balance. He warns us that anything which unbalances the hormonal system can cause tooth decay and gum recession. So…preventing tooth decay and gum disease does not just depend on how much we brush and floss but on how resistant our teeth and gums are to bacteria. The density or hardness of our teeth and quality of our gum tissue depends not only on the foods we consume but also on how well we digest our food and how well we absorb the nutrients from this food. In this book Rami includes everything one needs to know in order to increase the health or resistance of the teeth and gums to bacteria.

The author shares information on the role of vitamins D and A and calcium in obtaining or maintaining the health of teeth and gums. He includes charts, which list the foods high in the desired nutrients. Rami talks about how to obtain the minerals we need from bones and dairy products. Healthy fats are also very important to include in the diet as they aid the body in utilizing the calcium and other minerals properly. Using refined fat free products such as skim milk, low fat cheeses, or partial foods, such as egg whites (while excluding the yolks) is extremely counterproductive.

There is also important information concerning grains…whole grains versus refined grains…. and how to prepare them in order to obtain maximum nutrition and the least amount of plant toxins. Ways to increase your digestive potency are listed and explained. Methods of cleansing are also included. The author speaks about alkalizing the body, why it is a good idea, and several recipes to help the process are also shared.

Near the end of the book are chapters on gum disease treatment and natural gum care at home. I found the book Cure Gum Disease Naturally to be very comprehensive, containing much valuable and helpful information, which actually gets to the root issue of why teeth and gums are unhealthy. When people understand the root cause of a problem they can then treat the cause and actually heal instead of just treating the symptoms while the unhealthy situation keeps progressing under the surface. The health of our teeth and gums is very important. Researchers are suspecting that gum disease, gum surgery, and other types of dental work may provide a direct route to the brain for oral spirochetes and other bacteria and possibly contribute to Alzheimer's disease.

The author has a sincere desire to share this crucial information, which, if heeded, will greatly reduce world suffering. I highly recommend this book.

  1. This is truly a wonderful post regarding treatment of gum disease naturally. Thanks for these details. My daughter had gum disease and our Torrance dentist provided great treatment at affordable price. He also suggested some home remedies to prevent future dental problems.

  2. It's more than worth taking care of your teeth if these diseases are imminent with ignoring your oral health! My cousin smokes often and has been diagnosed with gum disease. Should we look into laser Gum Disease treatments?

  3. I am not an expert in this area but I would highly recommend purchasing the book "Cure Gum Disease Naturally". I try to follow much of Rami's advice.

  4. Hey,
