Quick Overview

Holistic Dental Care, The Complete Guide to Healthy Teeth a

A comprehensive guide to natural, do-it-yourself oral care, Holistic Dental Care introduces simple, at-home dental procedures that anyone can do. Highlighted with fifty-three full-color photos and illustrations, this book offers dental self-care strategies and practices that get to the core of the problems in our mouths--preventing issues from taking root and gently restoring dental health. Based on a "whole body approach" to oral care, Holistic Dental Care addresses the limits of the traditional approach that treats only the symptoms and not the source of body imbalances.

Taking readers on a tour of the ecology of the mouth, dental health expert and author Nadine Artemis describes the physiology of the teeth and the sources of bacteria and decay. Revealing the truth about the artificial chemicals in many toothpastes and mouthwashes, Artemis also discusses the harmful effects of mercury fillings and the much safer ceramic filling options that are available. Covering topics that include healthy nutrition, oral care for children, and the benefits of botanical substances and plant extracts for maintaining oral health, Artemis introduces a comprehensive eight-step self-dentistry protocol that offers an effective way to prevent decay, illness, acidic saliva, plaque build-up, gum bleeding, inflammation, and more.

Review(s)

The best book ever on dental health.

I have been reading Nadine’s book again, underlining everything, it really is the best book ever on dental health. I definitely feel I have been brushing my teeth way too hard and hence the receding gums, I love how Nadine talks about having the turtle necks as high as possible, its a great analogy.

Outstanding gum and dental health

Godsend

Thank you for the order I recently received. It was wrapped so beautifully. That holistic dental book is a Godsend along with all of your successful dentistry products. I have been telling people all over about Living Libations... :)

I couldn’t put the book down!

I loved reading Holistic Dental Care by Nadine Artemis. In fact I couldn’t put it down. I read it in less than 2 days (for me that’s huge – having a 2 year old toddler doesn’t allow me much time to read, but once I started reading this book, I couldn’t stop!). To be quite honest, dental care isn’t normally the hottest topic for me, but Nadine Artemis has a way with her written words that got me super inspired and excited about taking better care of my teeth. Her book has certainly taken my teeth cleaning routine to a whole new level! Over the years I have already been incorporating a natural, non-toxic approach towards taking care of my teeth and gums, but I have to say from reading her book I’ve learned a lot more things I never knew before, and it has led me to fine-tune my dental care routine which is giving me much better results. The book is packed with so much information. What I love most about the book is everything is simple to read, clear to understand, and extremely actionable. What stood out the most for me in the book is Nadine’s 8 Step Self-Dentistry protocol where she guides you step-by-step how to clean your teeth every morning and night. When you go to a dentist, they just vaguely tell you to brush and floss your teeth twice a day, but Nadine actually explains in detail how you’re suppose to brush and clean your teeth and gums, how to floss, rinse your mouth, etc., She makes sure you’re doing it all correctly. She also goes through all the various essential oils, serums, herbs, clays, salts, and natural materials you can incorporate in your routine to polish and thoroughly clean your teeth. You can make the routine as simple or as elaborate as you want while still getting results. I have to say, I’m so happy to have read this book. I’ve learned so much and feel much more empowered taking care of my own teeth and my family’s teeth as well. I fully recommend Holistic Dental Care to anyone who is interested in incorporating a holistic, safe, non-toxic approach for their oral and dental care. This book is also a fantastic reference book if you want to know more about the benefits of herbs, essentials oils, serums, clays, salts and other natural compounds that can be used to heal and strengthen your teeth and gums.

Healthier than a year ago!

I have Nadine Artemis' book and several of her essential oil and ozone products from Living Libations that I use with (most) of this protocol. Usually not by a stream. (Unfortunately ;) + oil pulling in the morning. It takes more time than my old routine, but so worth it. My teeth and gums were healthier than a year ago! And there is such magic in the intimate knowledge of ones own body. Knowing as the cleaning was under way, what she was finding and feeling from memory of my own exploration made me fall even more in live with the rare experience of this sweet body.

Thank you so much

I would like to thank you for enormous impact your products have had on my life. 4 years ago a dentist told me the only way to remedy my receding gums was to use fluoride toothpaste and consider a skin graft. I just saw a new holistic dentist one moth ago and she was so impressed how healthy my teeth were. she said i didn't need her! All thanks to your self dentistry kit and a healthy diet with lots of K2. Thank you so much for your botanical products and your amazing holistic dental care book. i probably would be in a mess of oral issues without them. I've also been a religious user of your poetic pits, shampoo and conditioner, best skin ever, and essential oil collection. my partner smells divine wearing gingerly poetic pits. i really can't thank you enough for your amazing products. my nose thanks you too! i promise to be a customer for a long as your company prospers.

Blew my mind!

I have read your fantastic book on holistic dentistry and it blew my mind! I loved it and am now using all of your gorgeous tooth products. They are really great, especially the Happy Gum drops and Yogi Tooth Serum.

Clear and Simple Knowledge

Nadine you are a class act! I love your clear and detailed explanations in the book. You have so much knowledge and experience with health and it shows in your advice and products. I purchased your tooth serum as well as deodorant and skin care products and absolutely love them. Keep up the great work - it is much appreciated!

This is absolutely the best oral care advice I have ever received!

This book is beyond informative, it's more "taking control and power of self-dentistry". I am so happy to have found this site. For people living in the under-develop countries, we don't have access to dentists as those living in industrialized countries. The cost of a dentist is beyond what any one can afford even with 3 months salaries. Taking care of our teeth the natural and simple way is best. Thank you so much for sharing such great knowledge!

A whole new way to care for teeth

Thank you Nadine. I've totally changed the way I care for my teeth because of your teachings and the change is indescribable. This is something someone has to implement to really know the fresh healthy feeling that I feel. My favorite grooming routine is cleaning my teeth with your dental serums and floss.

Feeling Empowered

I loved reading Holistic Dental Care by Nadine Artemis. In fact I couldn’t put it down. I read it in less than 2 days. I have to say, I’m so happy to have read this book. I’ve learned so much and feel much more empowered taking care of my own teeth and my family’s teeth as well. I fully recommend Holistic Dental Care to anyone who is interested in incorporating a holistic, safe, non-toxic approach for their oral and dental care. This book is also a fantastic reference book if you want to know more about the benefits of herbs, essentials oils, serums, clays, salts and other natural compounds that can be used to heal and strengthen your teeth and gums.

So good!

I stopped using convention toothpaste and instead use Nadine Artemis (Living Libations) Tooth care- no more pain and I feel like my teeth stopped growing holes. The holes are there but they do not hurt and have not gotten bigger!! Besides- you can take care of your teeth & gums without any chemicals, get whiter teeth, and not support those big companies that are only looking out for their bottomline. I can also say that ever since I switched to using your products on my teeth- my cavities have halted, my mouth chemistry has changed for the better and I have no tooth sensitivity anymore!!!

A life saver!

So brilliant to read this book - a life saver! I love you guys! I've gifted my friends with 'the book' AND your products! All the best to all of you!

Worth a thousand times it’s weight in the purest essential oils

t is no surprise that I am a fan of all things Nadine. Her wildcrafted, organic essential oils, and pure botanical serums have completely overtaken and transformed my medicine cabinet, body, skin, and now, my teeth. I’ve tried nearly all of her creations, and experienced amazing and lasting results with each bottle. But if I had to choose, Holistic Dental Care is the one libation I couldn’t live without. With it came the most life changing effects of them all. My teeth, abused from the very beginning, have found a second chance within these pages. By following the 8 steps of Successful Self-Dentistry, my tooth pain is gone, my teeth are whiter, stronger, and cleaner than ever, and my mind is finally at peace, knowing that I am in complete control of my oral health. Though it may sound odd, Holistic Dental Care is not just about dental care. By following the steps of Successful Self-Dentistry, I have found my results to be completely multi-faceted. The nutrition guidelines that promote healthy teeth have also improved my digestion, creating a radiance in my skin like never before. Plaque has become a thing of the past from using botanical oils while flossing, and in it’s wake, the stubborn blemishes and scars along my jawline have begun to fade away. By drinking mineral-rich herbal tea to strengthen tooth enamel and gum tissue, my hair has become thicker, and shinier. You see? It’s all connected! To me, Holistic Dental Care is a bottle that never runs out and the information it contains is worth a thousand times it’s weight in the purest essential oils.

Thank-you

THANK YOU for bringing the juice back into health and life. Juice and beauty. I love the Inbibe guide I just received, thanks for bringing awareness to the cells, the currents, colors, frequencies, delicacies. I discovered you via friend who caught the podcast on Bulletproof and listened as well. THRILLED at dental information. She and I had put on a dental conference here in Missoula for docs, a few years ago. Hal Huggins, Chris Hussar, Chris Shade and my friend, Dr. Patrick. BUT no body talked about revitalizing the mouth, teeth, cavities, etc to the degree that you do in this book. I hope that many many people are saved from unnecessary dental procedures. Uggh On to the future, thanks again for the optimistic and delicious info and products. I will shop here a lot!

In love!

I am currently indulging in this Holistic Dentistry book!!! In love! Your images are so superb in this book...especially, the teeth in the different shirts indicating the differentiation in gum line health!

My teeth feel amazing

After reading Nadine Artemis Holistic Dental Care book a couple of months ago I have implemented her 8 stage process. My teeth feel amazing afterwards so I do it 2-3 times/day. Let Nadine know it is the best book I have ever read on the subject of teet

change

I want to thank you for your amazing book on holistic dental care. It has changed the way I look at teeth, and how I take care of them.

absolutely loved

I first heard about Living Libations when I read Nadine’s Book “Holistic Dental Care” which I absolutely loved. I’ve read a lot of books on this subject I personally think this is the best. Since reading the book I’ve tried some of your products which thanks to the link from Nadine I’ve been able to purchase from Aggressive Health shop here in the UK. In a word.... I love them so much.... your lotions are fantastic, the Neroli Poetic Pits is just phenomenal and my teeth have never felt so clean with your oral care products. All I can say is thank goodness I found you.

really changed the way I look at my teeth.

Your book, Holistic Dental Care, really changed the way I look at my teeth. What a revelation: those things are ... alive?!? Whoa! Thanks so much for writing it! It totally opened my eyes! I'm telling everyone about it now! French people are going to hear about you, dear!

Your book is par excellence.

Your book is par excellence.

I’m amazed

I’m amazed by the changes I saw in my overall oral health after reading Holistic Dental Care, and following Nadine Artemis’ recommended oral care regimen. I am a fairly atypical case when it comes to dental health. First, I have a deviated septum from a childhood accident that leaves me breathing through my mouth most of the night. Second, I was volunteered for a clinical trial of some experimental dental products as soon as I had all of my adult teeth that ended up leaving me with very porous enamel. I have many, many fillings, and will probably have to have many of my teeth replaced in my lifetime. Sugar-free diets, highly meticulous and careful dental care regimens, and thousands of dollars in dental work have never done much to help. The picture that had been instilled in me by the world of standard dental care was this: My teeth are rapidly decaying, and an extremely careful dental hygiene regimen with lots of fluoridated toothpaste and mouthwash combined with lots of dental visits will just barely keep it at bay. Since stopping any of this would mean quickly losing all of my teeth, I diligently kept at it – even though my experience of using standard fluoridated dental care products was really unpleasant. Standard toothpaste burned the inside of my mouth really badly. My teeth were extremely sensitive to heat, cold, and the tiniest amounts of sugar. Brushing hurt my gums. Despite good flossing habits, my gums still bled, often just from brushing. And the worst part was waking up in the morning. My mouth would be coated in about an eighth of an inch of thick, dry saliva and bacteria. My breath would be less than pleasant and my nose would be completely clogged. There were even a couple mornings where the thick film I mentioned would dry my teeth shut, and I would have to pour water in my mouth to dissolve it so I could open it. I didn’t complain because I thought there was no better way. This, to me, was simply the cards I had been dealt in the dental department, and I decided long ago that I had to learn to live with it. Then someone recommended Holistic Dental Care to me. . . And here’s the amazing part: all of those symptoms went away in the first week. I was completely shocked. I woke up after just two days of following Nadine’s regimen able to breathe through my nose (as well as I can, anyway), with no film in my mouth or on my teeth. Brushing my teeth became pleasant because doing so didn’t burn the inside of my mouth. Then, over the next month, my teeth and gums started to become less sensitive. Now, heat and cold don’t bother me unless they’re extreme and sweet foods don’t cause any pain. It’s amazing! So here’s the dental hygiene regimen I started following and now use twice a day: First, two or three rinses with salt water. Next, I use a tongue cleaner. I actually didn’t know this existed before reading Nadine’s book, and now I can’t imagine not using it. The feeling of a clean tongue is just too wonderful. I also use this first thing in the morning and after any rich meal that lingers around. Then, a good, thorough, gentle flossing with a mild and petrochemical-free floss. After that, I gently brush my gums with my ionic toothbrush and a drop of Yogi Tooth Serum, starting at the top of the gums and slowly going down and over my teeth. Then, I polish the enamel of my teeth with a mechanical toothbrush while being sure not to use it on my gums. Finally, I go along my gumline carefully with a rubber-tipped gum sulcus and rinse once more with salt water. And that’s it! Although, I have to say that the best thing I did out of all of this was read Nadine Artemis’ book, Holistic Dental Care. For anyone who has dealt with dental problems, it’s a real gift finding out that you might not have to anymore.

5 Stars! Gives you good information, use it well.

Really tells you how to take care of teeth naturally, What is really out there to use other then what's on the market. - from Amazon Reviews

This helpful book lists easy to find holistic and natural products that have already helped me improve my dental health!

Before I discovered this book, I had searched for a natural and holistic products that would help my dental health (gums and teeth) naturally as well as easy to find products. This book is worth every penny that I spent on it!

In this book, there are 19 totally useful helpful chapters in this book, and while I found them all very helpful for my dental health, these are the sections in the chapters that I found the MOST HELPFUL and worked right away to restore my dental health:

Below are my favorite chapters in this book:

+ Chapter 2 - Your Teeth Are Alive - Gums Turtlenecks for the Teeth---This explains how swollen gums, gum disease can be treated and gums restored to pinkness and health! This
+ Chapter 8 - This has given great helps and what tools are needed to care for the gums (all with easy to use products).
+ More on Chapter 8 - This has Self Dentistry in 8 steps for using at home. This is the chapter I use the most!
+ Chapter 3 - The Truth About Toothpastes, Toothbrushes, and Mouthwashes. This helped me greatly as I never knew that was supposed to lightly apply a toothbrush again my teeth and gums! Also had not idea that commercial toothpastes are so harmful!
The same with many commercial mouthwashes!

This is a MUST HAVE BOOK on dental health in my opinion. And what I like the best is that I can follow the helpful guidelines at home. Have been doing so and they really work to help me with my dental health! - from Amazon Reviews

an important book

I found this immensely informative, supplying me with new protocols and approaches for self-dental care as well as ways to heal and support areas of past dental trauma. She provides a sound framework for understanding the biology and the energetic anatomy of teeth, writing in a clear and upbeat way. Anyone who has a difficult history of dental issues (like me) may feel like avoiding books on teeth. Never fear. We need the broader picture of how teeth and gums effect and are effected by the whole body. Highly recommended. - from Amazon Reviews

Brilliant

Most of what I read I already had known, but it is a good source to turn to if you have questions. I have been using living libations products for about six months now and notice a huge difference! My dentist was totally pleased with my teeth and didn't even have to do the entire cleaning! No scraping for plaque either!! - from Amazon Reviews

Convincing

The author tells us we are wasting our money buying commercial toothpaste. We are better off using salt water to gargle and baking soda to brush and whiten, and to keep on flossing. It costs less and is more effective in removing plaque and cleaning our mouth. I tried it and agree. We the, the public, have been totally brainwashed by the toothpaste manufacturers.

Note, the flavor of salt and baking soda is not sweet and minty like toothpaste, but why should everything taste like candy? Also there is some controversy that daily brushing with baking soda can wear away the enamel of the teeth - I don't have an answer for that. There is information on the internet supporting both sides of that issue. I use it sparingly and lightly.

The author also recommends using essential oils for cleansing and healing in the mouth. I have tried her some of her recommendations and am very satisfied. I have crowns and fillings to take care, and the gum tissue in my mouth is looking so much better. - from Amazon Reviews

Holistic Dental Care

I love Nadine's dental products. - from Amazon Reviews

Great book!

I learned a lot reading this book. I believe in holistic dentistry. I have paid way too much for crowns and other dental work. Never know if it was really needed. I had an infection in the bottom of a crown and he said I needed to have the crown removed and a new one put on. I started oil pulling with oregano oil in it. WOW! The infection is all gone. No new crown is needed. YEH!! - from Amazon Reviews

Eye Opening

One of the most eye opening and informative books on taking care of your teeth in the most natural and healthy way that I've come across. What a shame we're brainwashed early on about fluoride treatments, commercial toothpaste and mouthwash, etc. If I had known this a long time ago, I wouldn't be stuck with root canals and acid erosion of my teeth and bones. Great read especially for parents in keeping their children healthy. There's a direct correlation to our mouths and heart disease so start them young. - from Amazon Reviews

Gain control of your dental health yourself

This book teaches you more about caring for your teeth from a more natural view. You don't have to go to the dentist for everything, you can take control over your health by just being more cautious about how you take care of your teeth. It has pictures and explains basic anatomy and has good instructions and detail. - from Amazon Reviews

My Gums Are Healing!

I love this book. I rented it from my library and will be buying it soon. I will say that my gums bled EVERY SINGLE DAY so badly from brushing I would have to apply pressure to get it to stop. After switching to what she says in this book, my gums have not only stopped bleeding, I can even floss with minimal of bleeding! I am just blown away by the amazing of a transformation my mouth has made just from applying the techniques in this book. And my mouth feels fresher and my teeth feel clean for longer.

I mean it, either buy or rent this book and try it and see how it changes your mouth! - from Amazon Reviews

I have discovered several health problems I didn't know I had through this book! Thank you for your studies Nadine and God bless! - from Amazon Reviews

prudent advice that'll save you $$$

I've read 100+ health books and still learned so much from "Holistic Dental Care."

1) Traditional braces can expose you to toxic nickel and elongate a child's profile making him more unattractive.
2) Conventional mouthwashes contain alcohol which has been linked to oral cancer.
3) Use a light-activated toothbrush and baking soda (or non-fluoride toothpaste) for best results.
4) Even toothpaste from health food stores can be bad 4 U. Some contain glycerin+carrageenan.
5) Dont brush immediately after meal.

You'll learn how to properly care for bleeding gums and root canals etc. Save $$$ and read this!!! - from Amazon Reviews

This is a great little and concise book on how to take care of your mouth! It is easy to follow and if you do the 8 step method the author puts forth I don't see how you couldn't have very healthy teeth and gums, especially if you have a good diet to goading with it! It is sort of like being at the dentist to follow the 8 steps. I will, however, say that each person has to decide for himself how much salt and baking soda he uses with this method. - from Amazon Reviews

My Gums are healing - thanks to your book

Nadine, I love all of your products! And I thoroughly enjoyed your book on teeth! My teeth are thanking you and I'm looking forward to tightening my gums even more - the pocket sizes are decreasing and I thank your teeth products that I started using two years ago as a major contributor!

Based on a "whole body approach" to oral care, Holistic Dental Care addresses the limits of the traditional approach that treats only the symptoms and not the source of body imbalances.

Taking readers on a tour of the ecology of the mouth, dental health expert and author Nadine Artemis describes the physiology of the teeth and the sources of bacteria and decay. Revealing the truth about the artificial chemicals in many toothpastes and mouthwashes, Artemis also discusses the harmful effects of mercury fillings and the much safer ceramic filling options that are available. Covering topics that include healthy nutrition, oral care for children, and the benefits of botanical substances and plant extracts for maintaining oral health, Artemis introduces a comprehensive eight-step self-dentistry protocol that offers an effective way to prevent decay, illness, acidic saliva, plaque build-up, gum bleeding, inflammation, and more.
