I have been brewing my own probiotic coconut water Kefir for just over 3 months.
Being wheat/gluten intolerant, cow diary intolerant, severely soya intolerant, legume, rice, and now gluten-free couscous intolerant and both celery and fennel intolerant... and now shrimp treated with sodium monosulphite, Life is getting very difficult.
Also have been fighting to keep a root canal tooth in mid treatment. It's at the half way stage..
What I have found is that with every attack of poisoning due to eating something inadvertently, which causes this massive inflammation autoimmune response, within hours my improving tooth would become unbearable once more...
However, constantly drinking my kefir would improve the pain and reduce the inflammatory response in my tooth with 24hrs!!
I have repeatedly proved this positive outcome over several occasions.
The last poisoning attack however, proved too much. I elected to go the dentist. The tooth was treated and upon listening to my reports of the benefits of Kefir, my enlightened dentist told me to persist one more time.
The second repeated treatment of the tooth to 'clean it up and put a new dressing insider's, combined with my kefir, has completely healed my tooth. I was originally only given a 10% chance of saving it.
I have waited a few weeks to write this so as not to tempt the wrath of the Tooth Gods!
I can press my tooth, eat macadamia nuts on it and it's as solid as can be and pain free.
Clearly these inflammation attacks due to an impaired gut biome will have extremely negative effects on our teeth amongst other things.
However help is at hand with Kefir.
It's a start and a very good one at that. I wanted to share this good news and encourage Hope in others.
There are many other benefits that I will add in another post, but I particularly wanted to write this one in relation to Teeth.
