Question Regarding Program

Hi Dr. Ellie,

I just started your mouth rinse program and using xylitol. I am very excited to see the health of my mouth improve. The reason I’m writing is that I am interested in my mother starting your program. She is almost sixty now and has suffered from dental problems her whole life. She was born and raised in a third world country and never brushed her teeth until she was in her 20’s and came to the U.S. She is very diligent now about brushing and flossing but she is suffering from periodontal disease. As a result she has already had at least one tooth fall out of her mouth and I believe two have been extracted. I am very fearful that my mother may end up in dentures in the next few years. Her dentist is trying to convince her to have gum surgery as well as maybe have a few more extractions. My mother really wants to hold on to her teeth and does not want these surgeries. I really think that your program could help her. Are there any special considerations you feel my mother should take into account when starting your program? I know that chewing gum might be a little hard on her so I was thinking she could use the mints and “zelliewater” along with the rinses. Thank you so much for your help.


Hi T,

Thanks so much for your message.

My advice would be to get your mother on this program as soon as possible! TODAY!!!

The threat of dentures is not the major concern. The impact of gum disease on mental health and body health is the greatest danger.

Research shows that gum disease can impact heart health, increase risk of stroke, lung conditions, arthritis and many more conditions.

Some of the mouth bacteria can get into the blood stream and cause problem in the brain and elsewhere.

A friend of mine discovered by saliva testing that she had a number of serious gum disease germs in her mouth.

She had the gum surgery (which does NOT kill the germs) and a few months after the surgery – the disease returned.

This is when she met me – and decided to go on my program ( rinses etc. mints and ZellieWater)

After 3 months her lab tests came back normal and have stayed that way!

If you would like any more personal help along the way – I am about to launch a Dr. E Coaching site – to help patients along their path to oral health.

Please let me know if you or she would like to chat for half an hour – until the site launches I am offering this service at $75

It is very important to control spread of old disease – (toothbrush cleaning, where the brush is stored – I suggest our Zellies brushes – a pack of 25 encourages changing them often!!)

Probiotics, nutritional supplements ( Fish oil especially) avoiding acidity – etc. etc.

Most of what you need to know is on the website, but chatting can also be helpful when it comes to decision-making about dental treatments.

Yesterday I was able to recommend a patient to a dentist who understands the power of my system – and who is willing to monitor a child and “watch” her 14 fillings reverse!

(The mother is going to be saving about $2,000 because of this!)

Thanks for your message, and your confidence in me – you and your Mom will soon see the benefits!

Best Wishes,
Ellie Phillips DDS
