(NaturalNews) One part of getting older is rotting teeth right and gum disease? It's inevitable that when we age, our teeth will automatically go rotten and we will need fillings. But how true is this? Is it an absolute certainty that we have to have a mouth full of cavities as we get into old age? There is actually a significant amount of evidence that says otherwise. Age is not the issue, the issue is diet.

Dr. Weston Price was one of history's most amazing dentists. He studied many Indigenous people who never had any problems with rotting teeth until coming into contact with modern industrialization. They lived right into old age without any significant tooth decay. Yet when they began eating the standard diet of today, their teeth began to decay quite quickly.

The problem is that the modern diet generally lacks much nutritional value. High sugar junk foods, processed food, foods with pesticides, flavourings, colourings and other chemicals abound in our world today.

These foods lack vital nutrients that are necessary for healthy teeth, and these nutrients were present in the diets of most Indigenous people.

Interestingly, fluoride tooth pastes, fluoride in the water and fluoride treatments seem to do nothing positive for our teeth. In fact, there is a lot of evidence that fluoride is terrible for our health.

If we want healthy teeth, we cannot rely on convenience foods. Home made food that includes super foods are essential for our teeth as well as our overall wellbeing. We need to enjoy the food of nature, not the food of factories that are producing food at lightening speed for profit.

So what are some ways that we can avoid tooth decay and gum disease even into old age?

1.Avoid sugar, processed flour and grain products such as bread, crackers, biscuits, donuts etc. Colas, artificial flavors, colourings or foods with any artificial ingredients don't offer any nutritional value, and our bad for our overall health including our teeth. Any type of processed convenience food should be avoided to enjoy optimum teeth and gums.

2.Soymilk, soy protein, too much tofu, and unpasteurized milk also offer nothing of value to our teeth. In fact, they all cause tooth decay.

3.Raw milk is a super food that is packed with nutrients that are wonderful for our teeth. It balances the calcium and phosphorus in the body, and an imbalance of these minerals has been shown to cause tooth breakdown. People can drink as much raw milk as they want, while pasteurized milk has lost its value and causes imbalances.

4.If you have a sweet tooth but still want to enjoy healthy teeth, just replace your normal sugar with xylitol. Xylitol is a natural sweetener that occurs naturally and can be found in foods such as berries, fruit, vegetables and mushrooms. Its benefits have been widely researched. You can chew gum with xylitol, make cakes, put in tea, or put in anything that you would normally use sugar with.

5.Camu Camu is one of the best super foods for preventing gum disease. This amazing super food provides our bodies with endless benefits. It is the food with the highest amount of vitamin C in the world, and it also contains bioflavonoids. Studies show that a low immune system is one of the main reasons for unhealthy gums...and camu camu boosts the immune system like no other food.

6.Flossing is essential for healthy gums and teeth.
