Alternatives To Dentists is a new eye opening DVD being offered from Marjory Wildcraft of Grow Your Own Groceries (a.k.a. Backyard Food Productions). When I first heard about this DVD, I didn't think it was for me. I mean, it just wasn't a top 10 priority at this point in my life or in my homesteading. But teeth are one of those things we take for granted until the moment of crisis when we get a toothache. Seriously, doesn't the world come to a halt at that point?
No, I'm not suggesting that you ditch your family dentist! And neither does herbalist Doug Simons, who is the featured lecturer on Alternatives To Dentists. He does show you what to do in case you can't get to a dentist, which in and of itself is really helpful, but what I really liked about this DVD were the things I learned to help build up the health of my teeth so I wouldn't need extra emergency care or invasive dental work.
So along comes Doug Simons' DVD and he talks about tips for actually building up enamel on your teeth using herbs! It sounds almost too good to be true! I'm sure it will take time, but I have little to loose at this point. As soon as I can find the items I need, I'm going to give his "recipe" a whirl.
Other topics Simons covers includes:
* dental hygiene without brushes, paste, or floss
* how to make your own tooth powder
* healing cavities with herbs
* treating abscesses with herbs and poultices
* treating cracked and chipped teeth
* reversing receding gums and gum disease
* information on root canals
* floride, is it good or bad for you?
I'm not a practitioner and again, I'm not recommending you stop seeing your dentist. But if this DVD can help you in advance or when you can't get to a dentist, then I'm all ears. And if nationalized health care really does materialize, then we may be needing more information like this to treat ourselves in the future! At the very least, Doug explains a lot about teeth so that you can make a better decision even when you do go to the dentist. It's just good stewardship to do the best you can with your body in terms of being responsible, proactive, and preventative. And I could do better at this! But, I just didn't realize it was really possible until I watched his lecture.
