White Spots

Dear Dr. Ellie:

Thanks for your reply. I just went to my health food store & bought some granular xylitol. I am ‘eating’ 2 teaspoons a day for 8 grams. I try to spread them out as much as I can, but sometimes during the week [like at school] it’s hard for me to get any during the day. So then I’ll just eat the 2 teaspoons at night. Do you think not drinking as much pop would noticeably speed up the process? What about how my two front teeth seem ‘chalkier’ every now & then?


Dear AS

Every time you drink pop you damage your teeth but if you eat (or drink see below) xylitol immediately after the drink you take away this damage.

If you do not protect your teeth after the pop you will not heal your teeth.

Your choice is simple :
Either give up pop (and replace with an alkaline drink I can only think of two: Evian Water or Fiji water)
Or find a way that you can protect your teeth after you dink pop.

Use :
Zellies mints or gum (very easy) or
Make a drink out of one or two packets of granular xylitol. Keep this special water drink in your back pack and sip it after your pop to ‘wash” your teeth. This amount of xylitol dissolved in a 6 or 8 oz of water will not taste any different from water little to no sweetness ….but the effects will amaze you!

I suggest you tweak what you are doing and I think you will see a big difference. Make sure your toothbrush is clean and that you have the correct formula ACT mouth rinse.

Good luck,

    In addition to the Fiji (which I love) and Evian waters that Dr. Ellie mentions another alkaline bottled water is Essentia. (pH 9.5) I find it at Whole Foods. Read all about it at http://www.essentiawater.comAnother option is to purchase a small bottle of “pH Protector Drops” to use with your own (filtered, hopefully) water. You simply add 6-8 drops of the liquid to your glass of water, stir and drink up. I’ve measured the results before and after using the litmus paper I purchased at the Zellie’s store, and 8 drops took care of my water.I’ve been happily using the complete system for about a month now. Will write a follow-up post soon.Regards, KKC

    It’s great to see the increased awareness of the different types of waters.Another fantastic, super smooth tasting alkaline water is Saka Water, it’s an all natural alkaline water, I buy it from my naturopath in Melbourne, its made a huge difference to my acid reflux. I have never tasted anything like it.
