I just went to the dentist and I’m so happy with the results, I had to tell you right away.
Background: Just over a year ago, I had bought your starter kit and lots of extra Shine and was using them intermittently at first (mostly Shine, brushing blend oil, bass brush).
At the dentist a year ago, my x-rays and exam showed eleven cavities that had been growing for several years. Fortunately, I had only a little tartar after 4 years away from the dentist (using various natural products) and gums showed 1-4mm, not bad. I was too anxious to get 11 fillings at the time, so I avoided getting any.
A few months ago, I decided I had better start using your products daily as I certainly didn’t want things to get worse. I still floss but not as regularly as I should. So I’ve been using Shine and Blend daily for several months now.
Even though I live in a humid environment and the Shine powder turned to paste, I like using it that way (despite being annoyed at first). I really like the rounded bristle toothbrush, feels like a massage, though I also use an electric brush once a day. I was pleased to find that your EO blend is nice and strong, meaning you didn’t skimp on the expensive oils. Quality product.
One year update: I’m almost done my first jar of Shine. At today’s appointment, I had more x-rays and a thorough exam done by a new dentist.
I still can’t quite believe that I only have one cavity now (this one was deep for a long time, having grown for 9 years). Ten cavities disappeared???
I have no plaque this year, and very few 4mm pockets, mostly 1-3. No gum recession despite clenching (bruxism).
I’m tempted to get my x-rays compared side by side before I believe all those cavities are gone, and I’ll let you know when I do! The hygienist assumed I had those cavities filled (or I was lying) since they weren’t there. I hope to get the evidence!
At any rate, things are looking good and the dentist couldn’t believe that I don’t use fluoride!
Thanks to you and your Shine, Brushing Blend and bass brush! The educational blog is super helpful, too.
