I'm 7 months pregnant (yes, the paleo fertility rumors are true) and have been successfully treating my pregnancy-induced heartburn with a very strict paleo diet and some other tools, like small meals, etc. However, I've found that unfiltered... (more)
I've seen plenty of questions on here asking about switching to fluoride free toothpaste or getting a fluoride filter, but my question is WHY? I don't fervently seek the addition of fluoride in my life, but I have nothing against it either. All... (more)
I'm convinced that: 1) Fluoride is terrible to drink and shower in, and 2) Grok was smart for not adding it to his drinking and showering water. Question: What's a safe and effective brand / model to filter shower water? Given how bad... (more)
I'm thinking about switching from tap water to a spring water that comes in a big jug (with all the recent talk about fluoride in tap water). BUT I'm confused because I thought plastic was very bad, and leaches chemicals into the water. Is this... (more)
Spring water has fluoride in it too. I buy distilled which has much less. Alternatively, you could buy a distiller and do it yourself but I have not invested in one yet.
Question - has anyone ever used the filter pitchers made by Clearly Filtered? http://www.clearlyfiltered.com According to their site, the $45 pitcher can remove 90% of fluoride and other toxins for up to 200 gal. I emailed them and they would not... (more)
When you eat out do you prefer bottled water in plastic (glass is rare and expensive) or tap water with fluoride/chlorine etc.? I believe iodine can detoxify fluoride and chlorine according to Dr. David Brownstein, MD so I believe tap water to be... (more)
hi guys, I've cured my acne I think. I think it was a combination of anti-candida pills (Candex), paleo eating, probiotics, and finally, tap water. Yes, everyone in my family who I have told that tap water makes me break out thinks I am... (more)
does anyone know if it has been found to have any fluoride, chlorine, or other garbage in it? also if anyone has any recommendations for carbonated beverages that are "in the clear" that'd be great....thanks
I'm 27 years old. 99% Paleo diet (Micro-brew beer is my kryptonite). I eat NO SUGAR. I never really did. Even when eating a SAD, sugary stuff was always too rich for me. I have lost 55 pounds and I have never felt happier and healthier. In an... (more)
Ideally I'm looking for a stainless steel water filter. It must be countertop because our plumbing is weird below the sink and 3 plumbers earlier couldn't put in my below the sink UV water filter. Thanks in advance!
I have recently come across data claiming that russet potatoes contain 135 mcg of fluoride per 299 gram serving. Would anyone care to substantiate this? Would this be a catalyst of skeletal fluorosis and brain damage over time(say consuming one... (more)
Having heard that conventional toothpaste marketed as "aproved" by the dental assoc. of Canada contains sodium fluoride and that fluoride causes brain damage and skeletal fluorosis I changed to the "tom's of maine" and similar brands of... (more)
My daughter is 3 and her doctor prescribed her fluoride since our water isn't fluoridated. I've heard bad things about it, but I can't remember what any of it is. Keeping in mind that her diet is not 100% Paleo, and that I'm terrible about... (more)

Hi all, my question concerns green tea. I am wondering if it is a good idea to consume 10 grams of loose leaf green tea(apparently organic?) imported from China to Canada per day mixed in omelletes and not steeped or drained but simply 'as is'. If... (more)
I have been for 2 weeks and my teeth have gotten yellow plus it seems to make my breath smell. Its just normal Tom's of Maine toothpaste. Has anyone got any advice?

Can anyone recommend a really good water filter or system? I want to remove the floride from my drinking water. I am opposed to bottled water from a health perspective and an environmental one as well. Extra points if the filter is portable.... (more)
What evidence do we have that fluoride is good for teeth in any way? Is there anything besides epidemiological studies? Do these studies include all data points so they were accurate across all populations? Or were only a few locations used in... (more)
After success with other more natural alternatives, I've become skeptical of many mass produced so called 'health' products. Considering that fluoride is a toxin, I haven't found any good research showing that applying it to my mouth is really... (more)
I've been reading alot more lately on environmental effects on our food. I came across a very disturbing report about my favorite non water beverage... Apparently my green tea(and other types) contain significant levels of fluoride.. I filter... (more)
In some locales where fluoride is not in the water supply, oral supplements are provided as an alternative to help with cavity prevention. I also read that they apparently have never been approved by the FDA (though this may not really be pertinent). (more)
In this recent question "Do we need fluoride toothpaste?" PrairieProf referred to removing fluoride from water. So the questions are: Can that be done economically? How? (more)
