How to Heal Cavities With Diet

This is the third installment in a series of articles over a 30 day diet experiment. Please click here to see the first article, explaining the process.

Day 2 & 3 Summary and Progress (High Fat and Alkaline Diet)

I don't often eat breakfast, and I thought the next 30 days I would try and do so. However, it's not working out thus far. I don't think my body prefers to eat once I wake. I have read a few articles saying its not beneficial to eat right after waking in the morning. Other articles say to wait an hour after waking to eat. Yet additional articles instruct to drink warm lemon water for breakfast. My point being, there are many "correct" ways of doing things. I think listening to what your body wants is best.

I had planned on trying to completely cut out all grains, all legumes etc. However, in practice, I realized this is not the most practical decision. I felt I was needing additional carbohydrates, so I added a bit more. I can create an alkaline environment in my body, even with the increase. Based on what I have read about creating an alkaline environment, as long as 80% of what is ingested is alkaline, an general alkaline state in the body should be possible. It is important to remember that being healthy is not a one size fits all, and it takes trial and error to find the perfect combination for each body. After making those minor changes, I felt very full and satisfied for longer periods of time.

I cooked everything in beef tallow for additional healthy fats. I also made healthy coconut macaroons for snacking throughout the week to help satisfy my sweet tooth. I randomly took teaspoons of coconut oil throughout the day and practiced oil pulling before I went to sleep to encourage an alkaline state in my mouth while I slept.

How I Feel So Far

  • did notice I needed more carbohydrates, explained above
  • absence of bloating or overstuffed feelings
  • after eating grains, I used to get acid reflux, completely gone

It appears my body is beginning to become more balanced with my diet shift.
