If "quackery" is something that costs a lot of money and does not do any good, then much of modern medicine qualifies.

"Herbs will likely be our most powerful 21st century medicines." - Dr. David Williams.

"If cancer specialists were to admit that chemotherapy is of limited usefulness and is often dangerous, the public might demand a radical change in direction - possibly toward unorthodox and nontoxic methods, and toward cancer prevention." - Moss page 84.

"A number of drug company officials serve on the National Cancer Institutes (NCI) advisory committee." - Moss page 83

"...for most forms of cancer, many patients initially respond. But in only three forms of cancer - ovarian, small-cell lung cancer, and acute nonlymphocytic leukemia - did any appreciable percentage survive without disease, and even then this percentage represented, at best, less than a sixth of the total group of patients." - Questioning Chemotherapy

"They found that patients with leukemia had a 70 percent reduction in H2O2 production by their white blood cells. Maybe cancer is a peroxide deficiency."  - Dr. Douglass, page 64.

"Besides hepatitis, the risk of contracting human T-cell leukemia (HTLV-1) from blood transfusions is ten times higher than the risk of contracting HIV. This risk skyrockets when you consider that many blood recipients, including premature babies, are given the blood components from what can be, on average, as many as nine donors." - McTaggart page 272

10. I am writing to you from India. I am facing a problem with Breast Cancer for the last 6 months. I have completed treatments in TATA Hospital, Mumbai, in India such as Chemotherapy. But I am still facing the Problem.

The Doctor suggested another treatment, the Capsule (name deleted). This capsule is not available in India. It is available only in the USA and this is very costly. The doctor suggested 120 capsules to recover from Breast Cancer.

My family is very poor and are not in a position to do this treatment because of the funds. So can you help me or suggest to me where I can get this free medicine or funds?

We are not in a position to give money or medicine. However, if you have access to our web site Alkalize For Health you will find there a complete 8 step anti-cancer program you can do at home that costs very little.

One free medicine readily available to you is vitamin D which is made by sunlight shining on the skin. Even in India, which receives an abundance of sunlight, most people are deficient in vitamin D. Try to spend some time outdoors each day and expose as much of your skin to the sunlight as modesty allows. Everyone should do this.

Baking soda is inexpensive available in grocery stores everywhere. Why not consume a small spoonful with water daily? The bicarbonate in baking soda is very helpful to alkalize the body. If the cancer breaks through the skin, you might apply the baking soda solution directly to the cancer several times each day.

There may also be a Transcendental Meditation Center near your home. Learn how to meditate. Plus, you can ask them to recommend an Ayurvedic Vaidya who follows Maharishi Ayurveda. Maharishi Ayurveda is the modern revival of Ayurveda under the Maharishi Council of Ayurvedic Physicians that includes some of the most illustrious Ayurvedic physicians in modern India. Generally the Ayurvedic herbal remedies are much less expensive, have side benefits instead of toxic side effects, and have passed the test of time - having been used for thousands of years on untold numbers of patients. Ayurveda is the traditional system of medicine for India and is endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO).

You might also have a look at the website of the AM Charitable Trust ( which is based in India.

While we would never recommend that you not follow your doctor's advice, we certainly do recommend that you do everything that you can possibly do to help yourself. If the simple things you can do for yourself are all that you can afford, there are many doctors who would say that you are better off for not being able to afford to take the expensive medicine. The reason for this is that expensive medicines often have dangerous side effects and may even cause more cancer. Ask your doctor to let you read the Physician's Desk Reference information regarding the drug he/she recommended to you, and read it carefully. The Physician's Desk Reference is also usually available in public libraries. Dr. Lorraine Day cured her own cancer by following a 10 step cancer program that is mostly free. Dr. Lorraine Day is a western doctor who refused to use western medicine on her own cancer.

Vernon Johnson cured his cancer with baking soda.

Dr. Batmanghelidj recommends treating disease by drinking 6 glasses (1 1/2 liters) of water daily.

Here are some pages devoted to economical cancer treatment 1, 2.

Please do not feel that just because you are poor, you cannot afford medicine for the treatment of cancer. Even in the wealthier countries, cancer treatments are so expensive that few people can afford them. The entire cancer industry seems designed to cost as much as possible.

Most of the world cannot afford modern drugs. Many of the modern drugs are toxic and have been approved by government agencies only because the government employees are corrupt. Some drugs are chemicals derived from traditional natural herbal remedies and are effective. So why not take the traditional natural herbal remedies instead of the drug? The traditional herbal medicines of the world are affordable, and the best use of modern science would be to prove which herbal medicines are most effective and encourage their use. This would create a modern system of medicine that everyone can afford.

Please tell your doctor and the TATA family to read the web site They could change the treatment for cancer in the hospital to something that is both more affordable and more effective.

11. I have had Uterus Cancer 1 year ago.  What do I look for in recurring Cancer?

You can have cancer for many years without any obvious symptoms. By the time unmistakable symptoms present themselves, the cancer is well along in its development and probably metastasized. This is one reason why "self examination" for cancer is not very helpful. By the time you notice the lump, sore, discharge or other problem, the cancer is well developed. So you are faced with a choice: sit back now and wait for the cancer to reappear, or be proactive and start now to take what measures you can to prevent a recurrence.

The Alkalize For Health web site is designed for people in your situation. Why involve yourself with alternative or conventional treatments for cancer if it is not clear that you even have cancer? On the other hand, if there are elements of a healthy diet and lifestyle that can prevent and remove cancer, then why not incorporate these into your daily life?

If you can create a healthy alkaline situation in your body where cancer cannot exist, and keep your body free of toxic chemicals, then you help ensure that cancer will not recur. The Alkalize For Health web site suggests many components of a healthy anti-cancer diet and lifestyle so you can choose aspects that appeal to you and thereby take charge of your destiny. If there are no harmful side effects and many positive side benefits from a health promoting anti-cancer diet and lifestyle, why not do it? 

One common theme in studies of cancer treatments and outcomes is that the earlier treatment begins, the better the outcome. The earliest possible start will be to find ways to incorporate cancer treatments into your healthy lifestyle. This is what we have accomplished with our 8 step program to prevent and remove cancer. 

ONCOblot test reliably detects presence of 20 different cancers from simple blood test. This sensitive test can detect cancer in your body years before it will show up in a mammogram, CT scan or colonoscopy.

Here are the cancers it can detect: bladder, breast, cervical, colon, endometrial, esophageal, glioma, kidney, large cell lung, leukemia, liver, lymphoma, malignant melanoma, mesothelioma, multiple myeloma, myeloma, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate, small cell lung, and thyroid.


AMAS blood test is helpful to monitor patients at high risk for cancer or as a follow up for patients who have or had cancer. This test is covered by Medicare.  


Find a doctor to give you a Functional Blood Test, HealthPrint or Cancer Profile. These tests will help you maintain and restore health. 


Hopefully there will soon be available a quick and easy do-it-yourself test for certain cancers. Watch this short video on the 15 year old who developed it.

12. I want to know if you have any more information on the oxygen principle. I thought oxygen oxidizes the bad things in your system, but what prevents it from oxidizing healthy cells and causing damage? I am interested in using oxygen in light exercise once per month as suggested but have this concern.

Oxidation refers to the grabbing of an electron from one molecule by another. Oxygenation refers to increasing the number of oxygen molecules.

Oxygen causes oxidation. It is a question of balance. We need oxygen to live and our tissues are not getting enough of it for various reasons. The result is cancer. However, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. 

Antioxidants help to ensure that oxygen is used properly and with maximum efficiency in the body. Laboratory experiments suggest that increased consumption of antioxidants promotes a higher level of oxygen consumption, plus increased activity and longevity. This suggests that consumption of antioxidants provides a way to both live longer and get more out of life. Therefore, to get maximum value from the oxygen you breathe, it is a good idea to complement your increased oxygen intake with increased consumption of antioxidants such as MAK, plus Earthing.

There is also confusion surrounding the high energy forms of oxygen, such as hydrogen peroxide and ozone. Small quantities of hydrogen peroxide and ozone are healthy. If you read our oxygen page you will realize that hydrogen peroxide and ozone are competitors to antibiotics and other drugs. Hydrogen peroxide and ozone destroy viruses and bacteria by oxidation. In fact, hydrogen peroxide and ozone are BETTER than drugs because:

  • hydrogen peroxide and ozone kill VIRUSES as well as bacteria (antibiotics only work against bacteria and their effectiveness is declining)

  • hydrogen peroxide and ozone can be used to PREVENT infections (antibiotics should only be used after you are infected, and in massive amounts to ensure that antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria do not develop)

  • hydrogen peroxide and ozone PROMOTE good health (farm animals drinking oxygenated water are much healthier and have less body fat) whereas antibiotics destroy the friendly bacteria in the body and open the way to yeast infections and other problems.

Dangerous and unhealthy chemicals in smog include carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides. Ozone is a harmless component of smog, yet the population is regularly informed about "high concentrations of ground-level ozone" as a measure of smog. This association of ozone with smog is part of the drug cartel disinformation campaign to discredit ozone. Ozone generators and ultraviolet light are now used to purify the air in convention centers to prevent the spread of airborne diseases (such as Legionnaires disease and tuberculosis). The airline industry should do this also. Recirculation of air in pressurized aircraft can spread airborne infections through the entire passenger cabin. Home air cleaners containing a negative ion generator create a small quantity of ozone.

Good books to read include Douglass, M.D., William Campbell, Hydrogen Peroxide : Medical Miracle, Soundview Books, 1996, and Altman, Nathaniel, Oxygen Healing Therapies for Optimum Health & Vitality, Healing Arts Press, Rochester, Vermont, 1998.

In our opinion, MAK is the best antioxidant available. More information about MAK is available here.

13. I have questions about blood cancer. My girlfriend's sister died at the age of 13 years because of blood cancer. Her cousin is having the same problem. Does blood cancer flow from generation to generation? What is the chance that my girlfriend's two year old son and unborn child (she is pregnant) will get blood cancer?

Leukemia (cancer of the white blood cells) is the leading cause of fatal cancer in children. Leukemia is not known to be hereditary. Very few cancers have been proven to be hereditary. 

However, the relationship between parental exposure to carcinogens and resulting childhood cancer in progeny is important and needs to be better investigated. For example, parents who eat hotdogs are more likely to have children with leukemia (Epstein page 576). Also, radiation can damage sperm and ova resulting in damage to future generations.

Blood cells are manufactured by bone marrow. Blood cancer has its basis in defective bone marrow, caused by mutated DNA. 

The main causes of mutated DNA and leukemia are chemicals and radiation. The chemicals come mainly from air and water pollution, and contaminants in diet

The radiation responsible for leukemia is primarily from medical uses of radiation by doctors. The use of x-rays by doctors, dentists, chiropractors and others has grown so extensively that the medical uses of radiation now account for 90% of all uses of ionizing radiation. Even seemingly minute doses of radiation can cause cancer and leukemia (Moss page 69). Dr. Epstein strongly recommends against having an x-ray if you are pregnant, saying "The future risks of leukaemia to your unborn child, not to mention birth defects, are just not worth it" (page 304). "We now know that if children are exposed to x rays in utero their risk of all cancers is increased by 40 percent, of leukemia by 70 percent, and of tumors of the nervous system by 50 percent" (McTaggart page 23).

X rays harm people three ways (McTaggart page 23):

  • x rays can harm individual cells

  • if a woman is pregnant, x rays can injure the developing fetus

  • x rays can damage the sperm or ovaries of children or adults, causing abnormalities in future generations.

5% - 10% of cancer patients treated with chemotherapy will get leukemia (Moss page 82). Chemotherapy destroys rapidly dividing cells, including the rapidly dividing cells of the bone marrow. White blood cells produced by bone marrow are the foundation of the immune system, and the destruction of the ability of the bone marrow to produce white blood cells can lead to massive uncontrollable infections in cancer patients (Moss page 73). 

The embryo, fetus, infant and young child are particularly vulnerable (Epstein page 640) to the damage done by carcinogens:

  • because of their smaller size and rapid growth, pound for pound babies receive a larger dose

  • the infant's liver may lack the enzymes required to break down toxic chemicals

  • infant immune systems are not so strong as adult immune systems

  • rapidly multiplying and rapidly growing cells throughout the body of the infant are more susceptible to carcinogens

  • by age five the average American child has received more than the Environmental Protection Agency's lifetime "acceptable risk" exposure to many pesticides.

Exposures to the pesticides aldrin, dieldrin, chlordane and heptachlor have been associated with leukemia. Six million Americans (mostly children) are treated for lice each year with a shampoo called Kwell that contains the pesticide Lindane that is associated with leukemia (Epstein page 573). There are clusters of leukemia around nuclear installations (Epstein page 388). Military servicemen exposed to radiation also have a high level of leukemia (Epstein, page 389). Consumption of nitrite dyed or preserved meat such as hot dogs is associated with several childhood cancers including leukemia (Epstein page 478). Exposure to dark colored hair dyes is associated with leukemia and other cancers (Epstein page 478). Irradiation produces complex changes in food that result in chromosomal damage in children (Epstein page 643). 

Benzene (a solvent used in gasoline) is associated with leukemia. DES (a synthetic female estrogen) is associated with leukemia. Following the ban on DES, the meat industry started using other additives such as natural sex hormones that are legal, but still carcinogenic. Virtually all meat produced in the United States contains these added hormones. Dairy products contain many pesticides, drug residues and hormones including BHC, chlordane, DDT, dieldrin, heptachlor, HCB, and Lindane (Epstein pages 635-639). Consumption of the artificial sweetener Aspartame is associated with multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkins lymphoma and leukemia 1, 2.


"In defense of chemotherapy, oncologists point to real successes with leukemia. But even here, I'm sorry to report that the benefits from chemotherapy are not as impressive as we would like. Although often thought of as a childhood disease, leukemia actually develops ten times more frequently in adults than in children, and results for chemotherapy aren't nearly as good past childhood. In 1995, 26,000 Americans developed leukemia, and 21,000 died of the disease. For adult leukemia, chemotherapy has few answers.

The type of leukemia in children that can most effectively be controlled by chemotherapy is lymphocytic leukemia. This is the greatest feather in chemotherapy's cap, representing a genuine therapeutic advance, and yet, sadly, here too the treatment has drawbacks. Children undergoing chemotherapy frequently suffer seizures and brain diseases associated with alterations of brain structure. An article in Pediatrics acknowledged the high frequency of "acute mental status changes".

Even in those cases where it is effective, chemotherapy can be brutal."

- Robbins, page 243


For the 4% of all cancers that chemotherapy can actually help, the damaging side effects may be dramatically reduced by combining chemotherapy with Insulin Potentiation Therapy.

So if you are concerned about leukemia, what are you going to do?

Firstly, everyone who wants to have children should take steps prior to conception to ensure that their body is as pure as possible. You want to pass a blessing on to future generations. PREVENTION of cancer is always your best option.

Secondly, there is evidence that vitamin D helps prevent cancer. A good source of vitamin D is fish oil. Fish oil also contains vitamin A, and there is evidence that vitamin A helps cure leukemia. Vitamin C for leukemia. The herb feverfew, green tea, and enzymes may also help. Using the search box at the bottom of this page, search the Alkalize For Health website for references to "leukemia".

Thirdly, you and your family can follow our 8 step program to prevent and remove cancer. It is evident from the above discussion that our program is as applicable to leukemia as it is to solid tumors. You need to purify the body of toxic chemicals, neutralize free radicals, dissolve cancerous tissue, rebuild the tissues, and create a highly oxygenated alkaline internal environment where cancer cannot exist.

Fourthly, find a physician that you trust and can work with. To find such a physician you might begin with our Useful Links page. One promising treatment for leukemia and lymphoma is CAR T cells.

Natural Treatment for Lice

Apply a generous quantity of heavy oil such as unrefined sesame oil or olive oil to the scalp and hair. Allow to stay in place for at least 4 hours. This will suffocate the lice. Apply this treatment periodically for at least two weeks to remove the lice as they hatch from eggs remaining on the hair.

Letting the oil stay on the head overnight is fine. Put towels on the pillow. Or during the day wrap the hair with a towel.

Lice are becoming resistant to pesticide. This oil treatment is both safer and more effective. In fact, applying sesame oil to the scalp in this manner is a common treatment in Ayurveda, having many health benefits.  

Diatomaceous earth also kills lice. Keep it out of your eyes.

14. Could you tell me the symptoms, methods of treatment, causes, prevention, and methods of detection of breast cancer?

You have managed to ask a great many interesting questions all in one sentence! We could devote an entire web site to your answer, and indeed we have. It is  

You could change the words "breast cancer" in your question to a hundred or more other different kinds of cancer and you would either end up with a hundred web sites, or you would come to recognize that all forms of cancer have their basis in acidity and toxicity.

Dr. Otto Warburg, two time Nobel prize winner, said "The great advantage of knowing the prime cause of a disease is that it can then be attacked logically and over a broad front. This is particularly important in the case of cancer, with its numerous secondary and remote causes, and because it is often stated that in man alone there are over one hundred well-known and quite different kinds of cancer, usually with the implication that therefore we will have to find one or several hundred bases for prevention and treatment, and usually without any realization that this need not necessarily be the case now that we know that all cancers studied have a characteristic metabolism in common, a prime cause."

Therefore, we have structured the Alkalize For Health web site to answer your question to the best of our ability for ALL forms of cancer. On this web site, whenever you read something about "prostate cancer" or "breast cancer" any other kind of cancer, please read between the lines and understand that it probably applies to ALL forms of cancer.

The medical profession classifies cancer according to the type of tissue in the body that has become cancerous. So there are as many types of cancer as there are body tissues. This has made the whole subject unnecessarily complex. You have raised an interesting and important point, because people with (perhaps rare) cancers often find little information specific to their kind of cancer and do not realize that much of the information on "cancer" is true for all forms of cancer, including theirs.

With all that said, if you still want a detailed report on a specific type of cancer, you might have a look at the Moss Reports here.

15. Is there anything that can reverse early tooth decay - I have the beginnings of a cavity which is not drillable as yet?

The proper absorption and utilization of calcium by the body depends on vitamins D and K, and most people are deficient in both of these vitamins. The first thing everyone needs to do if they want to prevent tooth decay is to make sure they have a high level of vitamin D in their blood and adequate vitamin K. In the 1930's, Dr. Weston Price examined the diets of primitive cultures having remarkably good dental health. He found high levels of fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K as well as ample calcium and phosphorous.

Most people do not realize it, but teeth are filled with tiny tubes and have their own circulatory system. Teeth are alive and can grow, repair themselves, get sick (cavities) and die. Care of teeth has much to do with ensuring they get proper nourishment from within.

Tooth decay is NOT caused just by improper brushing, flossing or using the wrong toothpaste. Tooth decay is a disease of civilization, found when foods have become refined, processed, devitalized and demineralized. Broadly speaking, a war against tooth decay should start with remineralization of farm soils depleted of trace minerals. Foods grown on mineral-rich soils should be eaten fresh with minimal handling and processing.

According to Dr. Airola, a program to defeat tooth decay should begin with the mother's diet during pregnancy or even prior to conception. Following birth the infant should be breast fed for at least a year. Upon weaning, the child should be fed a mineral-rich alkaline diet, avoiding all refined foods.

"vitamin D must be present from conception in order for proper tooth formation to occur. If vitamin D is absent during the early gestational period, the enamel cannot form properly, and it cannot be repaired by giving vitamin D later." - source

Clean arteries provide adequate blood supply and nourishment to ALL areas of the body. Rebound exercise promotes lymph circulation through ALL the tissues. Abundant enzymes facilitate ALL metabolic activities. Adequate vitamin D and sunshine assist calcium absorption. Coenzyme Q10 is reported to be of value for heart disease, gum disease and cancer. If you take coenzyme Q10 supplements, look for ubiquinol because it is more effective.

Test the pH of your saliva. If it is below 7.4, take steps to increase the alkalinity of your body. A pH below 7 may dissolve both teeth and bones.

Teeth are a window to what is happening to your bones. There are about 18 important bone building nutrients including: calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, many trace minerals, several vitamins, plus essential fatty acids and protein. Eating bone meal is one way to get many of these nutrients and there are a number of research studies showing that consumption of bone meal helps create and maintain healthy teeth (for a list of some of the studies see How to Get Well by Dr. Paavo Airola, page 69). Taking a betaine hydrochloride tablet with each meal will assist mineral assimilation. If you are vegetarian, then you will need to find other dietary sources of these nutrients, but the research on bone meal demonstrates that diet can have a positive impact on dental health.


"In the early 1900's a dentist named Dr. Waters noticed that, without exception, every diabetic and cancer patient he examined, along with the majority of those with chronic diseases, had an unusually heavy buildup of calculus and evidence of gum disease. Those with dentures would have a heavy deposit of calculus on the dentures. Dr. Waters concluded that in these patients the bloodstream was slightly acidic, helping to foster the development of cancer and other diseases. One of the symptoms of this systemic acidosis was that the saliva made from acidic blood allows solids to precipitate and form tartar or calculus deposits on the teeth. 

The treatment he devised was to give these patients a supplement of ox bile, and by this means he was able to completely eliminate the calculus formation. Bile salts are highly alkaline." - Dr. David G. Williams, Alternatives, June 2001. (Note: Here we also find a cause of gallstones. When alkaline mineral salts found in your bile are reabsorbed by the body in order to help remove systemic acidosis, the bile becomes thicker and this leads to the formation of gallstones. - Dr. David G. Williams, Alternatives, June 2006.)


Here we would like to suggest something interesting. Earthing will increase the negative electrical charge in the body. This negative charge is used by the body in part to create liquid crystal water. If you watch the video of Dr. Gerald Pollack's lecture, you will see that the liquid crystal water is alkaline, has a negative electrical charge, and excludes impurities. In other words, a boundary layer of liquid crystal water is exactly what you want on your teeth to keep them clean and prevent decay-causing acids from dissolving the tooth enamel. We suggest that this situation would be the exact opposite of the acidic, plaque-prone mouths that Dr. Waters found above.


Dr. Weston A. Price, a dentist, first published his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration in 1939.

Dr. Price found that cavities, crooked teeth, and deformed dental arches are the result of nutritional deficiencies caused by the modern diet and are largely absent in "primitive" cultures. Where the diet is unrefined whole foods, the faces are wider, the teeth are strong and straight, and the physiology is generally more resistant to disease. Nutritional deficiencies result in narrow faces, small jaws, crowded and crooked teeth, tooth decay, and physical degeneration.

Dr. Price found that many "primitive" cultures had a tradition of providing superior nutrition to young people about to be married, to both parents prior to the conception of their next child, and to the mother during pregnancy and lactation. Plus, the pregnancies were spaced in time so that the health of the mother could be maintained.

Dr. Price observed that after adopting the modern diet of refined flour, sugar, canned foods, etc., these same peoples soon display the same physical degeneration found in modern society.



"A final plum from this most fruitful book regards secondary dentine. Secondary dentine, a less well-organized form of tubular dentine, is produced throughout life as a patching material where cavities have begun, where the overlying enamel has been worn away, and within the pulp chamber as part of the aging process. Sometimes when cavities occur, production of secondary dentine can "heal" the decayed spot or rebuild portions of the tooth that have worn away. If vitamin D is adequate, secondary dentine will be well calcified. If vitamin D is lacking, dentine will be of poor quality or not present at all.

There is some evidence that the mineralization of dentine may depend on calcium derived from saliva rather than blood; in other words, it is deposited from the exterior rather than the interior of the tooth. The book describes studies by Dr. C. L. Pattison who, working with Mrs. Mellanby, determined that the calcium content of saliva doubled or even tripled when the diet contained adequate vitamin D from cod liver oil." - source


How a new-born is fed and then weaned has a significant influence on malocclusion, crowding of teeth, and narrowing of jaws.


"All one has to do is make sure there is enough calcium and phosphate in their diet so that the migration [into tooth enamel] in is faster than out, and migration in is also faster than that of the alien ions standing by. Calcium and phosphate ions have an advantage over the other ions in that they are just the right size and shape to fit into the vacant spot caused by the out migration. Taking 1000 mg of calcium with D daily and one tablespoon of lecithin powder containing phosphate is a simple enough expedient to completely eliminate this problem. Thus, if you want to appear in movies or be a TV announcer with perfect white teeth, all you have to do is follow this advice and the advice later on which will prevent rapid out migration."
- Dr. Gerald F. Judd, Good Teeth Birth To Death, 1997, page 22.


There is research indicating that a sugar called xylitol (pronounced zy-li-tol) can significantly improve oral health, improve calcium absorption, increase bone density and remineralize tooth enamel. Use xylitol toothpaste and mouthrinse, chew xylitol gum and candy, eat xylitol jam, sweeten your coffee, tea, salad dressing and foods with xylitol.

Buy xylitol: 1 lb, 2.5 lb, 3 lb, 5 lb, 75 packets, peppermint gum 100 pieces.

The toothpaste we use is called Tooth Builder and contains xylitol which is found to reduce tooth decay. Tooth Builder toothpaste is fluoride-free.


At least one person we know of has controlled an abscess under a tooth by rubbing a little iodine on the skin of the cheek each day. Apparently the body will absorb iodine through the skin if the iodine is needed. When the body has sufficient iodine, iodine is found in all the tissues including saliva, where it may give the saliva an antiseptic quality. We recommend Lugol's solution (a combination of iodine and potassium iodide), which should be available from your local pharmacy. The body requires both forms of iodine. Iodoral is Lugol's iodine in tablet form.


"In 1922 dentist Percy Howe read before the ADA that his research team tried and failed to reproduce dental decay by feeding and inoculating guinea pigs with various bacteria associated with gum disease and tooth decay. He said "In no case did we succeed in establishing dental disease by these means." However, Dr. Howe had no problems in creating tooth decay in guinea pigs by removing vitamin C from their diet." - Cure Tooth Decay, page 8.



All measures you take to promote dental health by improving your diet and increasing the alkalinity of your body should provide many side benefits including helping to prevent cancer, osteoporosis, blocked arteries and other degenerative diseases. It is like pulling one leg of a table - all the other legs come along too.
