I went and checked out the websites you listed in your firs post - especially the first one. I looked through quite a bit of it and what I found there was quite disturbing. Most of the medical advice is in the form of comments and I saw MANY dangerous suggestions. I wouldn't take or use any of the advice listed there except for the ACV/honey drink.
Can I ask you, how you inform yourself about natural treatments (particularly herbal remedies)? Do you have a good book/books that you can reccomend? Do you turn to specific websites that you trust? Or do you just start reading online and ask questions on this forum? I'm just trying to find out what good ways there are to inform oneself.
If you're going to research - try to make sure of your sources. A truly excellent place to begin is Jim McDonald's Master List of Articles. He's an respected herbalist that's studied with 'true' master herbalists - those who have devoted their lives to this and studied under master's themselves instead of just taking a couple expensive online courses. One of the best things about the List of Articles is that he only links to other herbalists that he respects. It's an excellent resource. http://www.herbcraft.org/articleindex.html

Mountain Rose Herbs also has profile for each product that they sell - http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/learn/ ... powder.php
If you want to start your research online or at the bookstore - here are some names of respected herbalists to get you started (in no particular order):
You could also join the American Herbalist Guild Student yahoo group or Henriette's Herblist.
7Song is an herbalist from Maine. You can follow him (Sevensong Sevensong), Kiva or Jim on facebook.
You could also check out the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism school run by Paul Bergner http://naimh.com/

At this point I think I'll be removing myself from this conversation. The sources that you listed that you're getting your information from are dangerous. You are entitled to do whatever you want and your choices are solely your own. You can choose to put whatever you want inside your body. You can choose to ignore any caution that's been advised here. We're all entitled to make whatever choices we want.
I can choose to not be part of a discussion that I find dangerous. I'm not trying to be rude. You've received great advice and caution from women I greatly respect who have turned natural healing and health into a lifestyle.
The simplest and safest thing you can do is to eat a couple bites of hard cheddar after you eat to prevent cavities and rebalance the ph in the mouth and re-mineralize from the inside with nourishing infusions.
