If you’ve followed this blog for very long, then you probably know that I’m a natural mama and I love learning everything I can about healthy ways to raise our five kids.
Several years ago, we started experiencing some issues with our kids’ oral health… yeah, cavities.
I wasn’t a very happy mama!
Since we do brush our teeth religiously, I started seeking out resources that address oral health from the core out.
It was obvious that we needed something more than just the “brush and floss daily” routine.
I talked to two different natural practitioners- our chiropractor and our homeopath- and they both referred me to xylitol.
At the time, I was eating the Trim Healthy Mama way so I was already at least a little bit familiar with xylitol.
I talked with our homeopath rather extensively, and she told me about Dr. Ellie Phillips (whom she had personally heard lecture at a practitioner’s conference) and Dr. Ellie’s website-Zellies.com.
I ordered Dr. Ellie’s book, Kiss Your Dentist Goodbye, and read it.
This resource has been a life-changing approach to oral health for our family.
The opinions, and images shared in this post (with the exception of Dr. Ellie’s book), are my own.
For over two years now, our family has used Zellie’s products and religiously stuck to Dr. Ellie’s oral health protocol.
Here are a few results we are experiencing:
Whitening of Teeth
This isn’t the kind of “bleached” white most Americans are after, but we’ve definitely noticed a gradual whitening after using this mouth care system for the past two years.
I wore braces for three years when I was a teenager, and ended up with several stains on my teeth.Â I’ve noticed that most of the staining is completely gone, and all of the stains have faded.
I’ve never had my teeth whitened at the dentist, so all of these improvements are results of Zellie’s products and Dr. Ellie’s mouth care system.
Clean, Clean Teeth
Our teeth feel-Â and may I say, look- incredibly clean and polished.Â That kind of fresh-out-of-the-dentist’s-chair kind of clean.
My husband religiously follows Dr. Ellie’s mouth care system because of this!
I wouldn’t have believed this if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes:
Right around the time we discovered Zellie’s, one of our sons had six small cavities in the back of his mouth, between his teeth.
The cost of filling those teeth- and the possible toxicity of doing so– made me hesitate.
Since we had just begun using Zellie’s and Dr. Ellie’s mouth care system, I wanted to give it some time to work.Â We had a few of the cavities filled, but I canceled the second appointment.
Six months later, Colton’s next set of x-rays showed that all his teeth were strong, healthy, and completely cavity-free.Â The three, small cavities in his back teeth had healed.
You can read more about Zellie’s products, and how to use Dr. Ellie’s mouth care system, at Zellies.com.
I will tell you that Zellie’s is not a quick-fix for teeth with cavities, or for oral health in general.
It is a lifestyle of learning how to daily keep the pH balanced in your mouth in order for your teeth to heal and thrive in a healthy environment.
