My kid is pretty paleo and before that was pretty WAPF. However, I had an ironically imperfect pregnancy that resulted in 1. my inability to walk for the last 4 prenatal months, and 2. my relying on lots of carby cruddy foods (such as cheese and crackers) because those are the foods that were brought to me as I lay there wanting to tear my hair out.
Now my 3 year old is showing signs of having a crowded jaw. His teeth grow inward, if that makes sense. Is there anything I can do nutritionally to reverse this? I understand that it's an issue of formation in the womb. But I also feel hellbent (having been a big WAPF adherent before I became immoble, and that great big jaw is a WAPF health benchmark ) to reverse it if I can.
He's a healthy kid, I think. Great diet, still nursing, very limited vaccination and a cold only a couple times in his life. Beautiful skin, no eczema or athsma (as I have). Fit and strong and only sometimes a hyper-active little freakazoid.
I know whatever I would do do improve his dental health would improve his overall health, and we are mostly doing it. I just want to know how high to set my expectations. So,
Can my child's crowded jaw be improved by diet?
Thank you! Koko
