I've been following a Primal diet for a year now, lots of fresh meat, veggies and dairy, some whole fruit and occasional pieces of chocolate. Over the past couple of months I've noticed that my mouth, teeth and gums feel squeaky clean -- almost... (more)
Ive had an infection in my mouth before and it was the worst experience ever. It went away after some antibiotics. But now a couple months later the right side of my jaw or mouth hurts it only hurts when i open my mouth its almost sore. I have a... (more)
When I eat more than a little tempura, my gums freak out. They feel inflamed and may peel slightly on the ceiling of the mouth. Is this an allergic reaction, or do I just need to wait for the tempura to cool before I shove them into my mouth? I... (more)
It's the rough texture irritating your mouth, I believe.
Has anyone tried ConcenTrace Trace Mineral Drops? So many people raved about the positive effects of this supplement at the Amazon site, but it has left my mouth with the strangest taste -- almost like a film on my tongue somewhat reminiscent of... (more)
I hate the taste. I was using them and switched to bone broth and mineral rich foods instead. I did add them to broth for awhile and they were much more palatable. Could not do it in water. Salty broth masks the taste better.
Hi peoples, (first time posting) I've searched around, and can't seem to find anything that's applicable. I've been doing very-low-carb (0g-6g average) paleo for about a month now. Recently, about the past two weeks, I've experienced a dry... (more)
I have been getting a blister towards the back of my mouth, behind my molars ever since going Paleo 7 months ago. I really only have one that is reoccurring and I can pop it and then it seems to go away for a while. Today was the first time that I... (more)
Just as a preface I am going to be seeing a dentist to repair my mouth guard. I have always ground my teeth, and I believe this might not help my sleeping. I had a wakeup call last night since my mouth guard chipped yesterday. Are there... (more)
I'm 27 years old. 99% Paleo diet (Micro-brew beer is my kryptonite). I eat NO SUGAR. I never really did. Even when eating a SAD, sugary stuff was always too rich for me. I have lost 55 pounds and I have never felt happier and healthier. In an... (more)
I have been " doing" Paleo with my husband for exactly one month. Some pleasant results - lost 6 lbs of bloaty muffin-top, and no more gas! But. I am a pretty thin person, 5'8" ( now) 136, so that was not a major reason. I wanted to feel better.... (more)
The answer is it depends. Once again the C-word rears its head - CONTEXT! The optic with which you view the problems matters. As you know, digestion of starch begins in the mouth with amylase, which is the catalyst to break down starches into... (more)
Years ago a dentist scared me into using mouthwash by saying that a certain bacteria in the mouth could attack my heart. No idea if this is true. Lately, I've not been using it, thinking that I may be killing good bacteria. Now my wife says my... (more)
I noticed a few other posts on this, but has anyone found a solution for the weirdly dry mouth on strict paleo? Even my lips feel like they are cracking. No amount of extra water seems to help. Am I missing something important? I've been... (more)
I am going to the dentist todayyyyy! I have had this metal taste on and off for about 7 months. It will go and then come back. I have it so strong when I wake up. I can still taste other food, but have had it more for a week now. Now, I was... (more)
Sure, you can brush your teeth before and after bed, but what about the in-between? I would think having fresh breath in the morning would be a plus for married couples? Am I wrong?
Hello - I drink a lot of water. I average around a 100 oz for a woman of 5'8 and 150 lbs. I usually have not thirst, but dry mouth most of the time. Today, I tried eating more fat and the craving for water went away. Does this happen to anyone... (more)
