About the book:
According to government actuaries, U.S. dental spending in 2008 could top $100 billion. In light of the shaky economy, people are stressed about spending - and under stress, many resort to poor eating habits with diets high in sugar. But by changing dietary routines, Americans can limit and avoid tooth fillings and costly treatments like crowns and root canals, while bringing more health and balance to their bodies.

"Dental health is very important to the overall well being of the body and diet is vital to maintaining a healthy mouth," said Dr. Timothy Gallagher, President of the Holistic Dental Association. "I highly recommend this book for people who suffer from gum disease or frequently have cavities as it offers simple, effective nutritional remedies to help reduce pain and improve health."

Nagel's Cure Tooth Decay offers tips and steps people can take to improve their dental health, and ultimately, their overall well being. Some of his advice includes:

-Eat more organic butter. Organic butter from grass-fed cows has high vitamin content with a unique form of vitamin K2. It also has highly absorbable forms of vitamins A, E, and D, which are known to help bond the minerals calcium and phosphorus onto teeth - making teeth hard and healthy.

-Watch your intake of sugary foods and drinks. A diet high in sugar can lead to painful cavities and tooth decay. Sugar breaks down teeth because it causes fluctuations in the blood sugar, causing painful toothaches that can result in expensive trips to the dentist.

-Avoid pasteurized dairy products. While this may sound surprising, pasteurized dairy products are full of antibiotics, pesticides and growth hormones. A healthier alternative is unpasteurized milk from grass-fed Jersey cows. It is chockfull of vitamins including B6, A, D and K2, a vitamin that helps promote healthy teeth.

"Processed food does not contain the bio-available vitamins that our bodies need to build healthy teeth and bones," said Ramiel Nagel, author of Cure Tooth Decay. "Organic foods are chemical-free and are filled with the nutrients our bodies crave. As someone who has had painful and sensitive teeth turn painless and three recurring cavities heal from programs outlined in my book, I know that it can help others change their lives. The reality is that cavities and tooth decay are preventable. This book arms people with the tools and know-how to do so."
