The Clean Diet
Dr. Mallery believes in a clean diet consisting of organic or home-grown unprocessed foods as well as the removal of:
Reduction of wheat-based products and bread
Instead, eat fresh whole foods rich in colorful vegetables, fruits, light meats, pastured eggs and butter, nuts, seeds, coconut oil, olive oil and fresh filtered water.
Dental decay and gum disease is a sign of systemic dysbiosis. In other words, it is a sign that the normal flora, the normal bacteria, that coats our skin and lines our GI tract that starts in the oral cavity is out of balance.
One way to balance our healthy bacteria is to eat fermented foods like sauerkraut. Making fermented vegetables at home is very easy and they can last in your refrigerator for months at a time.
