Weston A. Price Foundation is named in honour of a Cleveland dentist, author of the book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. In the 1930s, upon observing that a large number of his patients had poor dental health, Dr. Price travelled to remote regions of the world and found that people in those areas who were still eating diets consisting of unprocessed foods had healthier teeth than his patients, who were eating large amounts of processed foods. He concluded that poor dental health was the result of nutritional deficiencies.
The data of 14 reports disclosed enhanced antiadhesive and antibiofilm activity by the plant extracts obtained from Vitis vinifera [common grape], Pinus spp. [pine oil, unspecific], Coffea canephora [coffee species], Camellia sinensis [tea species], Vaccinium macrocarpon [cranberry species], Galla chinensis [Chinese sumac], Caesalpinia ferrea Martius [Brazilian ironwood], Psidium cattleianum [Strawberry Guava], representative Brazilian plants and manuka honey. Overall, a positive correlation was revealed between herb-based therapies and elimination rates of all types of multispecies oral biofilms. In that context, integrating or even replacing conventional dental therapy protocols with herbal-inspired treatments can allow effective antimicrobial control of oral biofilms and thus, dental diseases."
