  1. Hi Jennifer,

    I recently heard about fermented CLO, and I am wondering if this form of CLO is necessary to heal and prevent cavities? We have been supplementing with purified CLO and Vit D3 all along, but just wondering if this is just as effective? Or do I NEED to go out and get the fermented version?
    Thanks! Love your site!

    1. Kim,

      I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary if you are taking a high-quality oil, but I would try to make sure natural forms of Vitamins A and D are added back in instead of synthetic. Raw and fermented foods are an important part of an optimal diet, so I like the fact that the fermented cod liver oil is both and is a whole food. As soon as parts need to be added back in because they were removed during processing, it stop being a whole food for me. I try to get foods and herbs as pure and minimally processed as possible while we are healing, so don’t feel the pressure to buy the fermented if you feel the brand you buy is good quality. If you notice that it’s not working as well as you would have liked, you can try the fermented cod liver oil and see if you notice better results.

    1. We were on the GFCF SAD diet for just over one and a half years. My cavities were found the day after we began making changes to a gut-healing nutrient-dense diet and all had developed between the molars within a few months. I have always been a regular flosser and was 30 at the time.

      In a recent post, I noted that Katie developed further cavities by eating too many sweets and grains during this past holiday season. Focusing on a nutrient-dense diet and removing those sweets and grains allowed them to fully heal also. She no longer has any pain when eating or drinking (it had become significant), and you can physically see where the enamel has hardened over the cavitations and turned bright white.

      The original pioneers of the ‘real food movement’ were dentists. Since they are often the first to see the results of poor health, they were the first to start looking for an answer. Weston A. Price is the most famous and his dedication has given us invaluable information and wisdom that shows us to steer clear of modern, processed foods. I highly recommend reading Nutritional and Physical Degeneration. It should be a part of every doctor’s education.

      Many dentists are now seeing the benefits of a nutrient-dense diet to the teeth and overall health of their patients and some even offer Cure Tooth Decay for them to borrow or purchase. Healthy patients = happy and loyal patients.

  2. My son is four years old and has been on a grain and dairy free diet for the last two years due to his autism diagnosis. He has been doing fabulously since taking him off all inflammatory foods and trying to heal his gut. We are already doing the fermented cod liver oil as well. However, I recently noticed two small brown holes on one of his back molars, which look like the beginning of cavities. What would you suggest we do or add in to help heal them? Thanks for this post!

    1. I’m so happy to hear how much better he’s doing! Healing teeth are difficult when diet is restricted, because you have to work with getting in the right foods for his deficiencies and correcting malabsorption. We like to add frozen fish eggs and frozen liver ‘pills’ to the mix and make sure to watch sugar intake. An overly acidic body will pull calcium from the bones and teeth to alkalize the blood.

      You can also increase his cod liver intake to 1 teaspoon or tablespoon a day until you notice them calcify. Try giving him digestive enzymes with it (lipase) and beet juice or beet kvass. Beets thins bile to emulsify the fat.
