How to Get Fluoride-Free Drinking Water

If you have your own water well on your own private property, have the water tested every year or two to see what is seeping into the groundwater.  You many eventually need to filter your well water.

If you purchase a home distillation machine, your water is actually too pure!  It contains no essential trace minerals, and will leach minerals from your body.  The simple solution is to add 1/2 teaspoon of pink Himalayan sea salt per gallon to the water to replace essential minerals.

You can purchase water at a water store that has a super filtration system, such as the one at House of Living Water in West Los Angeles:

You can install water filters in your kitchen.  Most water filters remove chlorine and other contaminants, but not fluoride.  Search the internet for water filters that remove fluoride.

The ideal solution is to install a whole-house water filter so that you are showering, bathing, and watering your vegetable garden with fluoride-free water, and install an additional water filter in your kitchen specifically for your drinking and cooking water.

Better Than Brushing ~ Tooth Blotting

Dr. Joseph Phillips D.D.S. M.S. (1922-2003) Wrote:

“There’s not much information out there that gives people a choice on how to care for their mouths. There’s brushing and flossing and a million different kinds of brushes and toothpastes and flosses with which to do this, which brings us back to the basic brushing and flossing. Bearing in mind that 90% of all adults in the Western world suffer from some sort of gum disease (yes, children too), and most people over 60 have no teeth at all, is brushing and flossing the answer?”

So the commonly recommended options are to carry on brushing and flossing because we don’t know any better.  Commercial mouthwashes also cause damage, especially those containing alcohol.

If you’re looking to find a better approach to brushing and flossing you need to look outside the proverbial box.

Solving The Problem

During the 1960’s Dr Phillips wondered why his clients kept coming back to him with the same problems. He showed them how to clean their teeth and gums but they weren’t doing it properly.

In his extensive research into the structure of teeth and gums, Dr Phillips established beyond doubt that toothpastes, mouthwash and flossing was not enough. He found that gum disease, tooth decay, tooth loss, cavities, bad breath and much more could indeed be solved and eliminated using a special technique.

Dr Phillips had seen how members of the Masai Tribe broke off twigs from the mustard tree and using the frayed end, cleaned their teeth. Have you ever seen a Masai tribesman smile? There’s a tooth missing in this image but look at the strong, white teeth and healthy gums. You can also see the frayed end of the mustard tree twig.



Dr. Joseph Phillips’ Blotting Technique puts all other brushing and flossing techniques to shame.

Basing his design of the bristles on this ‘frayed end’ process, his ‘Blotting Technique’ differs from traditional oral hygiene methods because it can, if carried out properly, reduce and even eliminate the need for brushing with toothpaste, using mouthwash and flossing.  The technique is detailed in the video below, and the special brushes are available from Tooth Wizards.

Although the Blotting Brush looks much like a traditional toothbrush, the uniquely-textured bristles draw plaque and debris from the gingival crevice. The Phillips Blotting Technique itself is based on a capillary-like action; that is the principle at work when a sponge soaks up liquid or when paint is drawn up into the bristles of a brush. The capillary-like action lifts and holds plaque in the brush so that it can be removed.

However conscientious you may have been in the past, you now know that what you’ve been doing so far is, at best, polishing your teeth. Toothpastes, mouthwash or the latest cleaning gadgets haven’t really been contributing to your oral health. You know this because of the limited results you’ve been getting over the years. Face it – if brushing and flossing really worked, you’d rarely need to visit your dentist!

Change For The Better

If you want to think and act outside the box you need to convert to using Blotting Brushes and/or the smaller, softer bristled MiniBlots right away. Only you can feel the incredible difference for yourself. Then can you exhale and smile with confidence.

Blotting Technique FAQs

Brushing and Flossing Causes Gum Disease



Chocolate Toothpaste Recipe

Chocolate Toothpaste is Better for Your Teeth Than Fluoride. Here is How to Make it!

Did you know you can use chocolate to remineralize tooth enamel while discouraging cavities?

Cocoa beans contain tannins, polyphenols and flavonoids, each of which is a type of strong antioxidant that benefits your mouth and teeth. Theobromine helps harden tooth enamel, making teeth less susceptible to decay. Scientists at Tufts University have found that cocoa actually helps harden tooth enamel. Cocoa contains a lot of theobromine, a water-insoluble, crystalline bitter powder that acts as a hardening agent.

Tooth decay starts when Streptococcus mutans bacteria produce a sticky substance called glucan which helps the bacteria anchor themselves to teeth, forming plaque. Bacteria in plaque convert sugars to acids, which eat away the tooth’s surface and lead to cavities. Scientists have found that cocoa bean husk – the outer part of the bean – is a potent source of antibacterial agents.


  • 2 tablespoons baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons organic coconut oil


Combine all ingredients and mix until you have the consistency you want. Scoop the paste onto brush. Store the paste in a container with a lid as baking soda can absorb smells. You can also make it squeezable by putting it into a empty toothpaste tube.

Detox Heavy Metals Slowly and Gently

While it would be good to have no toxic heavy metals in your body, you cannot take them out all at once if your colon is clogged, because the burden of elimination will land on your kidneys and liver and could cause serious health problems.  You must first work on bowel cleansing, then liver and kidney cleansing, and then you will have strong enough organs of elimination to begin methodical detoxing of heavy metals.
