I’m trying to learn about toothpaste… We live in an area with no fluoride in the water and use toothpaste with no fluoride. My daughter’s baby teeth (she’s 5) are starting to get cavities, and I spoke to a friend who has healed her son’s teeth. She said if toothpaste contains glycerine it coats the teeth and prevents healing. Is there truth in this? I can’t find it in the book. I’m wondering whether I’m better switching to fluoride toothpaste. I can’t find any natural & organic ones without glycerine, and she is really fussy about flavor. It has to be strawberry or similar! Any help is very welcome.

Glycerin Free Natural & Organic Toothpaste Alternatives
There are alternatives available, here’s a list compiled of same:
Some toothpaste brands use baking soda, which is excellent for abrasion and whitening. However, as long as they contain Glycerin, the capacity for total cleaning and care will still be ineffective. Some varieties of toothpaste consist of baking soda and coconut oil. Baking Powder and Coconut Oil are a good combination because unrefined coconut oil acts as an anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory while containing minerals your teeth need.
Surely the strangest name on this list when it comes to toothpaste. However, this version of dirt delivers all the essential ingredients to ensure your teeth remain healthy and strong. The Dirt is a powder that’s made up of a variety of ingredients including Extra Fine Bentonite Clay, Saigon Cinnamon, Baking Soda, Organic Myrrh Gum Powder, Organic Nutmeg, Sweet Orange Essential Oil & Organic Cardamon Essential Oil.
The ingredients work together to help keep your teeth clean and healthy. Bentonite clay works as an abrasive that’s gentle but effective. The myrrh gum powder, cinnamon and nutmeg, and baking soda help with healing teeth and gums as well as whitening. It’s easy to use. Just wet your toothbrush, dip it in the powder and brush your teeth. Sweet orange essential oil gives it an excellent taste with no artificial sweeteners.
Earthpaste is another natural toothpaste that doesn’t contain Glycerin. Instead, it contains water, salt, Redmond clay, and Xylitol. It’s completely organic and is useful for keeping teeth clean and healthy.
Tooth Soap comes in several forms: shreds, whip, gel, and liquid. The ingredients used are organic coconut oil and olive oil as well as spring water and essential oils.
As the name implies, you take a shred, placing it on a back molar and biting down. Brushing a wet toothbrush over the area produces a foaming cleaning agent that many have claimed to be effective.
The liquid form of Tooth Soap works with just a few drops on the toothbrush. You will get a refreshing clean with its scrubbing bubbles.
The Tooth Soap whip form adds coral calcium to the mix for extra protection. It comes contained in a pump bottle to prevent waste.
The gel form of Tooth Soap is super concentrated. You only need a tiny bit to create the full foaming experience that gives you the same deep cleaning experience.
Tooth Soap works in combination with saliva to replenish the minerals in your teeth, to keep them strong. It does all of this without Glycerin.
The Arm and Hammer has saccharine in it, unfortunately.
I use this one (https://thrivemarket.com/p/tea-tree-therapy-tea-tree-toothpaste-with-baking-soda), no glycerin and no fluoride. Important to eat a very low phytic acid diet at the same time, though (so that your saliva is comprised of everything it’s supposed to be comprised of to remineralize your teeth). At least, that’s my understanding.
We are using Theodent kids chocolate toothpaste, and I am seeing white regrowth in my daughter’s molar within three months of using it. We have just reduced grains and sugars and ate a healthier diet and did fish oil and I give her my jigsaw magnesium too.
I’m switching between Theodent, Poofy organics, and APA kids toothpaste. Also adding a drop of 2% Lugol’s iodine to the brush too.
I got this coconut oil remineralizing spray too but saw it had peppermint oil in it. ???? I haven’t given that to my 1.5yrs kid, so I use that.
I just looked up the Theodent toothpaste, and it looks amazing, but it also contains glycerin ????.
This (https://www.amazon.com/Coral-Toothpaste-Berry-Bubblegum-Flavor/dp/B004TR5GBI) was recommended to me by our very holistic dentist. Works great. Been using for a few weeks. My daughter has been fighting tooth decay for three years, and now finally she has started seeing some improvement.
