Dear Dr. Ellie,
I recently found your site and your system after a rather disappointing dental check-up. I want to say thank you for your amazing site, product, and all of the information you provide! It is really inspiring and motivating me to take charge of my dental health like never before. After 26 years of perfect dental visits, I was told at my last one that I have, not one, but TWO cavities! In addition, they told me that I have the beginning of gingivitis (2 and 3 pockets).
Since I have never had any pain or sensitivity, I would really like to try to reverse the tooth damage using your system. I purchased all of the supplies and began two days after my check-up! So, I’ve been on the system for about a month and added the Zellies in about a week ago. Since being on the system my teeth definitely feel and look amazing! I have no new visible plaque since my professional cleaning, which seems pretty darn impressive to me! But I do have one concern. Lately, I’ve been experiencing some bleeding in my gums. I’m wondering if this is because my teeth are a bit shocked from so much attention (my previous routine consisted of brushing once a day and flossing once in a blue moon!), or is possible a sign of another problem because I never bled while brushing before?
Maybe it is much too soon to be worried about such things, but I just wanted to check because the bleeding seemed to stop and then came back today. Anyway, I just want to thank you again and hopefully I will have some great follow-up news to this email in a few months!
Thank you for your nice message.

I would suggest you make sure that your toothbrush is clean every day. I wonder if you are using a Zellies brush or maybe an old one from before? Toothbrushes are transporters of bacteria very problematic especially if you do not store them clean and dry. http://www.zellies.com/store.asp?pid=17185
A well designed and clean brush, combined with the “system’ should have any bleeding resolved in a matter of days.
Good luck. We are working on making DVDs to help explain the system even more easily. Make sure you are signed up for the newsletter to alert you when they are done!
