Your Holy Health - Part 17 - How to Have Better Teeth
by Tonja Taylor

For years, I had cavities, abscessed teeth, and other challenges, which involved terrible pain, loss of finances from missed work and trips to the dentist, and such. Sometimes the cavities or abscesses caused sinus infections.

I wound up losing several teeth and having to pay a few thousand dollars to have four teeth replaced. 

Although I grew up thinking this was caused by “bad genes,” I know now that, although genetics may have allowed a tendency for my teeth to be more susceptible to disease than many other people, it really had to do with what I put in my body, and the fact that fluoride, from what I have discovered and now believe, can actually cause tooth decay.

I certainly wish I’d known what I’m telling you now all those decades ago!

But better late than never. Besides the fact that I now believe in the healing power of God through prayer and speaking the Word over oneself—and I have certainly experienced it in many areas of my life!—I believe in that the LORD in His mercy is bringing a “renaissance” of knowledge about how to properly treat our bodies so that these amazing creations the real us walks around in can heal itself!

Blessed are we whom He trains in His ways (Psalm 24:4-5)!

Here are a few ways the LORD has brought healing to my teeth and mouth and that may bring healing to yours:

  • I stopped using toothpaste with fluoride. I have not had cavities since, although part of that blessing I would think was enhanced by the fact that I also eat very well, avoid sugar, and drink kefir and kombucha, plus, of course, speak the Word of God over my body, soul, and spirit every day!

  • Swish with organic coconut oil before you brush, to loosen food from your teeth so your brushing will be more efficient.

  • Floss at least every other day. If my gums bleed or if I feel something is wrong in my mouth, I will swish a fresh glob of coconut oil in my mouth and not spit it out nor rinse it out; or rinse with water and hydrogen peroxide; or rinse with strong, sugar-free mouthwash.

  • I have not had cavities since I have started this about 2 years ago

These activities almost always work to increase the health of teeth and gums, and other parts of the body!
