I don't think your body would tell you you're zinc deficient if you're supplementing it... i would say it's either something with the metal fillings (usually is, especially if it's mercury based) or it could be your body is getting an overdose of... (more)

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)

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.

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?

You could also try oral probiotics. I think they've helped me immensely. They are a bit pricey, though. Maybe the money you save by not using toothpaste or mouthwash (from previous comments) would make up for it , though.

I agree with an earlier post: they are different than supplements found at grocery stores. When found by the right producer you should feel positive effects.

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)

Drinking too much water can cause a dry mouth. Also, with such a low carb diet, you are likely eating a significant amount of protein. Protein is a diuretic, causing your body to excrete water, along with electrolytes. Given that you are drinking... (more)

Stress and/or anxiety often play a role too - and with my daughter it was the sole cause of teeth grinding. She's in grad school so she can only lower stress to a degree... her program is stressful. Still, after diet, supplement, exercise and... (more)

Quickly do this: 1. Ensure you are eating all as many fat-soluble vitamins as you can, including K2 and D. 2. Ensure you are eating a mineral rich diet (from your post it seems you have this down already). 3. Eliminate as many sources of... (more)

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)

I would say you are "more than likely" drinking too much water and are probably still dehydrated given that you experience a dry mouth. Do you also experience a dry nose, or dry eyes? There are two main factors in dehydration: Amount of water... (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)

I'm betting stress and run down immune system not food is causing the issue. Def try the coconut recommendation first though a bump in vitamin c and zinc always helps in my case. Watch the acidic fruits during the mend and make sure sleep is dialed. (more)

It's clear which is regarded as polite in contemporary neolithic western society. But which is paleo?

Open mouthed if weight loss is the goal. Easier for food to fall out before mastication. Key: avoid mastication, it causes salivary blindness.

Your dentist may also have been talking about how bacteria can enter your bloodstream from your mouth. After you brush your teeth or floss, or any dental procedures like scraping your teeth, chances are you've broken some of the small blood... (more)

Thanks for so many thoughtful responses. I'm going to do the following: (1) cut back on adding any salt, (2) go without the bacon/sausage for a few days, (3) cut back on dried fruits (they're dehydrated, after all!), and (4) if I'm still having... (more)
