I've been toying with not using tooth paste for a while now. I've tried a couple of online recipes of remineralizing tooth paste, and didn't like them too much. Then tried straight baking soda, and it was pretty good. Only that after a few weeks, most of my front teeth became a lovely tone of brownish. Not great. I freaked out - we're building our house while living in it, and having a mirror wasn't high on the priority list, so I only saw the effect a couple of weeks in. At a family event. Yikes.
Anyway, switched back to toothpaste, and the discolouration went away after a few days, which is good. However, now I feel trapped by toothpaste Has anyone had this effect? Googling mostly finds recommendation for using baking soda to REMOVE stains...

Two things changed this past Christmas: I got a new constitutional homoeopathic remedy from our family homoeopath, and I started following Ramiel Nagel's "Cure Tooth Decay Naturally" advice: bone broths, liver and bone marrow in our diet as well as the healthy fresh green veg. we were used to; as well as oil pulling every night with coconut or other oils. Result: I enjoyed small amounts of chocolate on a good few days over the Christmas period - each time expecting to pay the price later… and no ulcers at all! I'm not sure if it's the oil pulling, the diet or the homoeopathic remedy; but it's certainly a step forward. My mouth is fairly full of mercury fillings and I'm happy to report that my health has certainly been better rather than not.
