tooth pain
Attention: Your diet may be destroying your mouth… it was for me…

They used to be shiny and white.

Now, they’re a mix of green, brown and yellow.

You used to never think about them.

Now, you can’t, because your mouth is crying out to you before, during and after you eat anything — sweet, hard, hot or not.

You thought you were eating a diet that would heal your body, detoxify your organs and clear up your brain fog. You had no idea that the diet would cleanse your of your teeth.

You’re not the only one…

When we traveled around the U.S. speaking about healthy diets (over 50 cities) one of the most popular and frequently asked question was about teeth.

Apparently — particularly in raw food and vegan circles — people are having problems with their mouths.

I know this is true because I had them too.

Here’s a list of my teeth issues:

1. Staining.
2. Hot and cold sensitivity.
3. Pain after eating anything sugary.
4. Receding gums.
5. Bad breath.

I was in denial at first.

I had read about these issues happening for some people — I’d even interviewed experts who talked about them — but I didn’t want to believe.

My dogma was that the diet I was on a complete raw, vegan diet was the best diet on the planet. There were no exceptions.

So these weren’t teeth issues to my convoluted mind, they were a symptom of how we’re used to be — in nature.

Our teeth are supposed to hurt like this, I convinced myself. We just have eaten too many bad foods and our bodies don’t feel the cues any more.

I was sure that chimpanzees in the wild had teeth issues like I did as well. We just couldn’t study their reactions, or no one was willing to do so.

But as much as my ego justified my pain, my teeth continued to get worse.

I thought back to a time when my molars didn’t ache every time I ate a date and I wondered — maybe I was wrong. Maybe my teeth were getting bad and — even more difficult to swallow — maybe my diet was to blame.

So, I went through the next stage of unraveling my dogma. No, I didn’t completely change my diet or do anything like that. I figured that it was just me. That I was the one who wasn’t doing the diet completely right. That I hadn’t eaten enough bananas or wasn’t drinking enough green juice.

I went on a mission to add even more foods (that I was already eating) into my diet to cure my condition.

Of course, as I’m sure you’ve already concluded, it didn’t work.

My teeth still hurt.

So finally, I conceded just a bit and allowed myself to wonder if my diet — remember, the best diet on the planet in my estimation — was the best for my teeth.

The wall — just like my present condition of my teeth — started to crumble.

I started making changes in my diet to get more minerals and improve my digestion. The first thing to go was the hot and cold sensitivity.

Next up the stains.

I learned about Tooth Soap and Tooth Brightener. After using it, my teeth started to get brighter — whiter.

I revived my flossing routine and my swishing and my bad breath all but disappeared.

Now, about 2-3 years later, I don’t have any pain when I eat dates — even if I eat 20 of them on a binge (which I do about once very 2 months.) I don’t have any hot or cold sensitivity, when it was there all the time. I even remember one day running one day in the winter and breathing in to the most excruciating pain I’d ever felt in my mouth — all due to my sensitivity to the cold.

I credit the success to these factors among others, though I can’t identify one as the best:

1. Eating more cooked foods.
2. Flossing every single day.
3. Using Tooth Soap.
4. Using a mouth swish.
5. Adding some animal proteins into my diet.
6. Regular HCL supplementation for digestion.
7. Regular enzyme supplementation for digestion.
8. Less stress.
9. Increased hormone production.
10. A healthier outlook on diet.

What’s shocking to me these days, now that I’ve been through all of this, is that I hear so many similar stories.

What’s worse, is that I hear stories of people stuck in a few of the stages that I was in at the time.

The denial of the issue at hand.

The denial that the diet could cause the issue.

The belief that it was me, not the diet that was the problem.

But, I ultimately, can’t change anyone. They need to see it for themselves — just like I did.

What I can do is bring the idea to your attention so that if you’re in the muck and can’t find your way out — at least you’ll be aware that you’re not alone. There are plenty of people in the raw food and health movement with bad teeth — some from their past behavior, others from what they’re eating right now.

It’s not a lie.

It’s not you.

It’s a fact that we’ve seen over and over again.

Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise.

Anyway, if you have questions about your teeth I’ll be talking more about them tomorrow including some interesting science that I’ve found, but I also have a great resource for you.

I came across it just a few days ago and purchased it. After I read it, I was thrilled to find out that many of the things I did (and struggled to research) — as well as some things that I’m going to add to my mouth care routine — were completely covered in one place.

The program is called “How To Heal & Prevent Dental Disasters In 21 Days Or Less” and I was turned on to it by our friend Frederic Patenaude — you may know of him. After I got the book and knew that I wanted to share it with you, I asked him if he could give you a discount on the program and he agreed. It’s normally $37 or so, but he’s going to offer all Renegade Health readers a $17.05 discount, so you can get it for just under $20 — at $19.95.

It’s a good deal, I promise. I picked up one tip from it that I’m starting in the next week or so that will likely save me thousands of dollars in dental bills in the future.

If you want to get this program all you have to do is head on over to this site and use this coupon code: RENEGADE

Here’s the site…

Please note this deal will expire on Monday, July 16th, so make sure you get it while the price is really good.

Your question of the day: What is the most effective mouth care strategy that you use?

    My teeth care strategy is to place a couple of drops each of Tea Tree and Lemon essential oils on my toothbrush. Kills bacteria and gently whitens teeth

  2. Scott says:

    Light brushing! We don’t need to brush as hard as we do. My gums are better now that I only use a super-soft toothbrush and floss every single day. Thanks for the tooth soap tip! And what kind of animal protein are you eating?

  3. Deborah Riley says:

    Ah, glad to hear I am not the only one.

    In addition to your symptoms and similar solutions [since my “almost 100%” vegetarian lifestyle], I get inflammation that makes my gums and teeth very sore. I also play a LOT of tennis in the heat [Florida] so twice daily I take COX2 inhibitor herb supplements and Omega 3’s. The supplements contain such herbs as curcumin, ginger, white willow, devil’s claw, bromelaine, quercetin, etc. Nutrition Cottage and Jarrow both supply a version of this miracle concoction that keeps me both playing and chewing. Definitely minimizing or eliminating gluten, salt, & sugar helps. Hope this assists others with same problem. I am 60 yrs.

  4. Bobbie Jo says:

    I have had periodontal “issues” for the last three decades along with huge buildups of plaque no matter how often I brushed or flossed. I’ve had gum surgery more than once and have had my teeth cleaned every three months. Recently I finally began using a Sonicare toothbrush and have reduced the plaque level at least 90%. At my last cleaning they were amazed and said don’t come back for 4 to 5 months. My diet is 90% raw and includes organic dairy and free-range (cooked) eggs. Having the rest of my mercury amalgam fillings removed next week….

  5. John says:

    One book. Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. If you have teeth problems, read it! It is the answer to all dental problems and it’s been known by few for 80 years. Why Weston Price’s research isn’t widely known by now is a shame.

    In short, humans need the usable forms of fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K2 in order to absorb minerals and actually lay down the bone matrix in teeth and bones. This is where grass fed animal foods come into play. You can eat all the veggies you want but you will not be able to convert enough pro forms of vitamin A and K2 to get these minerals INTO the teeth and bones. However, it must be grass fed because the animals convert massive amounts of beta-carotene and K1 for our benefit because they ARE vegetarians. Don’t be afraid of animal fats. The fat helps you absorb the vitamins and minerals and it tastes great and is filling, pushing excess carbs out of the diet. God isn’t stupid, he isn’t going to provide food for us with harmful things in it.

    Grass-fed animal foods WILL harden and strengthen your teeth and can even reverse cavitation. It’s even more important for those with European backgrounds to include animal foods.

    READ THIS. Perfect expression of human genetics cannot take place without animal foods. The synergy between animal fats, the usable form of vitamins in them and minerals must be present or there will be deficiencies causing less than optimal gene expression and physical degeneration or vulnerabilities of some kind. These deficiencies can be passed on to offspring which will display narrow jaws, crowded teeth and poor dental health because their genetic potential could not be realized.

    Further, most diseases of aging are caused by calcification because of inadequate vitamin K2 consumption which you can only get from grass fed animal foods and natto. Without K2 from grass fed animal foods, calcium cannot get into the bones so you end up with calcium being placed in other areas of the body causing arthritis, heart disease, hearing loss, etc.

    All of the proof needed is in Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Weston A. Price.

    Jesus Christ is Lord and is returning soon! Read the Holy Bible, repent of all sins and form a daily relationship with our creator Jesus Christ, lest you perish in sin. ONLY the blood of Christ He shed for us can cleanse us from past, present and future unrighteousness and make us fit for the eternal Kingdom of Heaven. Only complete faith in Christ saves, not works. Deny yourself, pick up a cross and prepare for the return of our King, Lord and Savior! Amen.

  6. Kuru says:

    Ditto, Sonicare! And flossing every day.

  7. Henrik says:

    Tooth Soap is awesome! And I don’t think that it’s even the tooth soap itself that is the key, but the lack of abrasives that is in most other tooth pastes. I have much less sensitive teeth since I started using it.

    I have to say though that the thing that made the most difference to my dental health was actually Adya Clarity. I have stopped using it since I’m not sure that it’s safe to use, but I did notice an enormous improvement in my mouth after using it for about a month. Not a trace of plaque and practically no need to floss. It’s too bad I’m afraid to use it because I really miss how clean my mouth felt.

    I have not personally had any tooth problems doing a 100% raw vegan diet. Quite the opposite. But I know that others experiences differ so there might be many contributing factors.

    It must be hard for people like Doug Graham that is pretty much forced to stick to his dogma even though he (as far as his wife said) has problems with his teeth. We’ll he can change it, but it would probably hurt his business.

  8. Suzanne says:

    Vegetarian since 16 years of age (now 55), vegan the last 5 years and never any teeth issues. Floss and brush and use a natural tooth paste without all the chemicals. At the last dental check up they said my teeth and gums looked better than they ever had and I did not have the plaque build up. Jumping for joy! Sometimes I think it is what we choose to eat because not all vegans or vegetarians eat well. It is also how we care for our oral health.

  9. Kalpana says:

    We have had great success with a herbal product called ORA MD. We discovered it accidentally while we were traveling. I was supposed to get a crown on my teeth after we went back home. However, during the travel I started using ORA MD and by the time I saw my dentist again, all my issues were gone and I didn’t need the crown!
    Look into it!

  10. Lynn Ranos says:

    I was only on 100% raw for 7 months and I am still paying the dental price. My teeth cracked frequently, as well as my fingernails. Now I am eating a bit of cooked food and animal protein and hoping after I get yet another tooth fixed, this will be the last problem for quite a while!

  11. QC says:

    I don’t have any teeth issues but one: black stains around the gum lines. I’ve been using Tooth soap and whitener, brushing twice a day and flossing and light/quick brushing after every meal. No matter what I do, I still have that black stain. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of them?

  12. Bryan says:

    First adding the Sonicare Toothbrush, though I think even the ‘soft’ bristles may be a bit hard. then adding a Water Pic with a drop of oregano or lavander oil. I am always amazed how much stuff comes out after I have brushed and flossed. Gum line went from 2mm and 3mm with some 4mm depth to mostly 2mm with some 1mm and a 4mm area at a back molar. I use Barefoots Tooth Powder.

  13. Julie says:

    Kev: Your email on tooth problems and care is
    quite helpful. Sometimes, wearing a plastic
    retainer discolors the teeth because it is co-
    vered by it. Brushing and flossing the teeth
    are helpful to good hygiene.

    Smoking cigar and cigarette , and chewing beetle nuts may discolor the teeth as well.

  14. al says:

    I haven’t eaten animal products for 9 years.
    I was starting to have some issues a few years ago. My teeth just didn’t feel right to me.

    I brushed my teeth and flossed regularly, but still felt uncomfortable with my teeth.

    Here’s what I did to alleviate my symptoms:
    Swish coconut oil in my mouth once or twice a day for a few minutes.

    Take at least a tablespoon per day of high quality chlorella and spirulina.

    After I started doing those two things, my teeth felt great and my dentist has been amazed at how healthy my teeth and gums are.

    Thanks for all of the great info! 🙂

  15. Kevin, any input on bruxism? (night grinding) I am wearing the points of my teeth down to the dentin. I am not particularly stressed, have a good diet, sleep like a baby, and for years was in denial about the grinding. I thought maybe I was just a very thorough masticator. (i have always chewed my food more than I need to.) After eating a vegan meal of raw veggies, my jaws are so sore from chewing that I take a day or two and eat smoothies just to avoid chewing! My digestion is obviously excellent, but my teeth are not! It wasn’t until my dentist pulled a gold crown and showed me the hole in it. This has happened twice. I wear a night guard when I remember, and have done parasite cleanses. I’m thinking it may be to a compression injury involving my Atlas, which also affects blood pressure. My tends to run a little high, but I exercise every day and eat a mostly healthy diet. Any ideas?

  16. Mike says:

    Kevin, please, please, please, please talk about reversing cavities that have already formed!

  17. zyxomma says:

    Kevin, the link you supplied for the book is working now, but it’s at full price; no discount.

  18. Tamikko says:

    I love this and appreciate this article for your honesty. So thank you very much. My teeth are so bad and I had no idea that they would be so. This needs to be shared with others, because you only get one set for a lifetime.

  19. Frank Berg says:

    As I see it the symptoms could be a dozen, fifty, a hundred or more. Every disease or symptom is a result of a lack of minerals in our diet. Each part of the body can be made up with one or more minerals. We don’t understand yet which mineral or what combination of minerals go with each part of our bodies. We have learned more about some parts than other parts, such as what do we need for our brain, bones and teeth,(we know it is not calcium from milk products) prostate, (Those of us who have one) ,hearing, eyesight, muscles, and so on
    As I see it everything starts with 98 minerals. The best minerals are those from plants. Adya Clarity comes from a deposit of plants made millions of years ago. It was compressed similar to the making of coal which is quite (rock-like)I was surprised to learn (when I worked around the mining industry) how they used strong acids such as we have in our digestive tract to turn copper into liquid. Then they pumped it into tanks to reclaim it as a near-pure solid sheet of copper.
    It is no new insight for me to see that an ancient deposit of Black Mica will release its store of minerals when the same strong acids are applied in the recovery from rock to liquid. It is that from plants (a million years old) which our bodies find easy to assimilate and use to build strong and healthy bodies. Major essential minerals Copper, iron, aluminum, nickel, and all the trace minerals are included in Adya. I have used it every day for four years. The only side effects I have noticed is that I lost 50 pounds without trying and my weight stays normal. My health has improved year after year. I am 78 years old and work outside every day except Christmas day.
    Donna Gates told us how to make a Coconut Kefir. I make mine with one capsule of Acidophilus and Bifidus, and one capsule of Ultimate Multi Probiotic in the water from each coconut. I let it stand in a glass jar for a day or two on the back side of the stove then refrigerate it. A sip of this Kefir several times each day does wonders for my Candida. Best of all a sip swished in the mouth just before bed time puts all this friendly bacteria to work all night. The yellow is gone from my teeth and the plaque is soft and never builds around the gum-line. I have not used a tooth brush or floss for over nine months. I have no sensitive areas and my breath is kissing sweet. My teeth are white clean and healthy looking.

    As I see it when we start using 98 minerals everything begins to move back to normal. All the minerals that our body needs are not found in the plants and meat that we eat. The minerals are not in the soil that grows our plants. It will not matter if we eat them raw (which I think is best) or if we cook some of them. We will not increase the number of minerals in the plant. We must supplement. A good place to get them is from the ancient deposit in the form of Adya. “Oceans Alive” is taken from the plant life in the sea. Again it is plant life from the sea and it has 98 minerals. Give the body what it needs to build with and most of the symptoms go away.

    All exercise is good. It helps to circulate the blood.

    We mostly follow the weston-price and Gaps diet (ancient eating habits- lots of cooked/fermented vegys, plenty of healthy fats, etc) I saw an improvement in my teeth when I began taking fish oils suppliments (cod liver oil was the best) the stains are still there though- hope to pick up some tea tree and lemon oils that sounded good. Great info! love the personal testimony! keep up the good work!

  21. Baking soda is invaluable for keeping my teeth white and sparkling clean a couple of times a week. I also use neem enamelizer, healthy gum drops and an ionizing toothbrush from and my hygenist says my teeth have never been so “plaque free”.

  22. Selina says:

    What kind of animal products are you eating?? I don’t think that by adding just any animal product to the diet would be a solution to get better teeth. It would be more helpful to know more specifically on what helps against bad teeth?

    I had horribly aching teeth a few years ago when I was lacto-ovo-pesco “veg”, now that I have been vegan for 2 years my teeth don’t hurt anymore, at least not as bad as they did before. My teeth have been bad my whole life, but they are a little better now.

    I figure it’s because I eat more healthy now, being vegan I have to think more about what I eat, therefore I have better teeth. But I would of course wish to have really nice teeth for once.

    Horsetail, nettle and oatstraw infusions are great supplements for teeth. They are very rich in absorbable minerals that are great for the bones. I would look into those if I were you 🙂

  23. Stephanie says:

    Kevin I really can’t thank you enough for this post. And thank you to everyone for sharing their stories.

    Over the past year, I’ve found three areas of decalicification in my mouth – with significant erosion near the gum line of one tooth. Needless to say, this has been a huge wakeup call. My diet dogma is unraveling as I speak. I’m now on a mission to heal my teeth (and body) to prevent further damage. One of my bad habits was an addiction to apples, cacao, honey, and lemons – just to name a few… I’ve been freaking out a bit – thinking “what have I done to myself”??

    I just checked out Ramie Nagel’s “Cure Tooth Decay” book from the library. Some of the suggestions are a bit overwhelming – but I’m taking baby steps. Just started taking Cod Liver oil religiously.

    I’m finally paying more attention to the diet that my ancestors ate: fish, wild game, raw cheese & milk, root veggies, eggs, herbs, and lots of berries, seaweed, and greens… They had perfect teeth. My grandparents were the first to have health issues when they begain drinking soda, eating canned food, and margarine, factory meats, candy, etc…

    Thank you for the coupon for the dental program – I’ll be purchasing tonight.

  24. aaron says:

    another great book on the subject wld be “cure tooth decay” by Ramiel Nagel.

  25. Stephanie says:

    Hi, Kevin. I appreciate your sharing of your experience, but I must say the title isn’t my favorite as it makes one assume that a vegan diet directly leads to poor oral health.
    I have gum recession & sensitive teeth as well, but this started back when I was eating paleo. (I’ve been vegan for only 2 months.)

    Kevin, have you ever considered Cacao as the cause of your gum recession? I remember your past video saying your minerals were totally off when you consumed lots of chocolate. I have read once that mineral imbalances (especially the ratio of Calcium:Phosphorus) causes poor gum health. I used to eat tons of unsweetened chocolate back in my paleo days to get in the “fat” calories. I feel it was a major component in making my teeth yellow and unhealthy. HCL seems to be a big factor too in both your and my case, as poor digestion = poor mineral levels.

    By the way, if anyone is wondering how I went from Paleo to Vegan, check out the Primitive Nutrition Series on youtube. It was a big eye-opener for me.
    Thank you.

  26. This has been very interesting. thank you all. I have been vegan for 15 yrs and mostly raw. I lead a very healthy lifestyle and am very careful what I eat, have always had great teeth until recently. the last few yrs my dental health has been suffering. I take minerals, probiotics and many other supplements as well (the best quality as I am a certified nutritional consultant). I have noticed lately that my gums hurt and I am getting a bad taste in my mouth. I have also developed atrial fibrilation and it is getting worse since I refuse to take drugs. I am feeling, like Kevin, that everything I have been working at for so long must be all wrong and I don’t know what to do next.

  27. Devi says:

    Then there is the mental aspect of teeth – something about making decisions. I find that after I make that big decision the teeth problems go away. Just a thought.

  28. Christine says:

    Being 100% raw completely ruined my teeth and gum. I used to have greens smoothies everyday and loved how good I felt, however, fear of loosing my teeth got me back to cooked veggies, grains, beans and rice.

    I just started brushing lightly with a drop or two of essential oil on my brush. I’m also considering the tooth soap …

  29. Susan says:

    Wow Kevin. This ‘tooth business’ is news to me!

    I love your blog and your approach to healthy eating–as you advocate–it is so individual.

    I do a combination of Blood Type Diet and Body Ecology. I eat fish about twice a week, some turkey and when I feel like I need some red meat–lamb. This is all according to my blood type. Lots of healthy fats and oils, and am (mostly) gluten and sugar free. And, of course, lots of veggies, beginning my day with a green smoothie. (: I have no problems with my gums or teeth unless I eat sugar. When I eat a sugary food I have a couple of teeth that ache. I figure from the inflammation in my body caused by the acidic nature of sugar on the body?

    Hair, teeth and nails are such are such an important indicator of the health and well-being of the body. So glad you posted this article. Indeed it seems very important to address diet when the teeth/gums go awry.

    Keep on doing what you’re doing.

  30. Se says:

    I believe having a full raw diet is not the best for the teeth as it has ton of sugar in most recipes especially the Agave nectar they use many times that is high in fructose. I also just am surprised that ppl always say how great Himalayan crystal salt is and it is more than 5 years ago when they even said it is hydrating the cells in the body. There are to of false claims about it and no one ever wondered to check it seems.

    I did get it tested by a chemist who is specialized in food chemistry and it is nothing but regular table salt but has a lot more uranium in it! As far as the extra minerals go just drink DE food grade that is basically fossil flour and it is the same that gets built into the salt formations as well adding minerals. I would recommend to keep away from uranium so as Himalayan crystal salt!

  31. Renee says:

    Thanks again Kevin for sharing such great information! I work at a Holistic Dental practice and we often see that vegans have weaker teeth, more sensitivity, and more decay. Very interesting!

  32. Angel says:

    Hey Kevin,

    My teeth have gotten better actually but I do the 80 10 10 with a little more like 15% fat. I had always had teeth issues growing up and I was on a high meat and dairy diet back then. I think the most important thing is to keep teeth clean and floss. Also avoiding things like processed foods is a good start as they deplete the body of minerals. I also make sure my fruit is ripe.

  33. Helen says:

    Try craniosacral treatment for teeth grinding,might need a few treatments but will help.

  34. Helen says:

    Also plaque build up comes from an acid condition in the mouth,try an alkaliser salt mixed with xylitol for teeth cleaning,or drinking bi-carb soda before bed to keep system alkaline.Colloidal silver is great for keeping streptococcus bacteria in the mouth under control

  35. Dani says:

    Dear Kevin, I wish to congratulate you with your blog and the diversity of subjects you talk about.
    I rinse my mouth every morning with Brine, it’s a mixture of Hymalian Salt with ZeroPoint energized water ( It not only solved all my teeth problems, it even was in mesure to re-fix loosening teeth. It gives me all the essential minerals and oligo-elements my body needs and that I can’t have with my food.You can even brush your teeth with it, you get used to the salty taste!
    Keep up the good job!

  36. Michelle says:

    Most of you may know, but minerals must be absorbed in an acid environment. This part of digestion is tricky because the pancreas releases a buffer to neutralize stomach acid so the food can enter the small intestinal tract without damaging it. There is only a small window for the minerals to absorb, and if there is not enough acid, they won’t get absorbed which is why HCl supplementation is vital for most (amongst other reasons). Happy digesting!

  37. Minerals… yes minerals are most important.
    I definitely agree with #19’s response.
    Myself, I have used Avena’s tooth oil and the minerals. Available from…
    A special formulation of essential oils to keep the teeth clean, restore electricity to the gums which prevents and eliminates receding gums. Freshens the mouth to keep it fresh and pleasant smelling. And when swallowed after brushing, helps digestion.

    Oh, and we should not eat animals as we take on the animals discord (fear, etc.)into our cells lowering our spiritual frequency.
    Did Jesus eat animals??? I do not believe HE did!

  38. Sue Clinton says:

    Kudos to those who are making the Weston A. Price connection! FYI there is research taking place at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario Canada (my home town). The paper that was written by Ian Spreadbury:
    Comparison with ancestral diets suggests dense acellular carbohydrates promote an inflammatory microbiota, and may be the primary dietary cause of leptin resistance and obesity. Basically, what it is saying is that the SAD diet promotes obesity and the Weston A. Price (ancestral) diet does not! Nice to see the research!
