He grunted and then sighed. The new embroidery on his tunic was itching his shoulder. It was otherwise a fine garment made of the soft cloth. He adjusted his robe again and looked again at the two in front of him. The trader looked at him expectantly while the other stood a step back with her head held low.
“Slaves”, he thought, “are almost more trouble than they are worth”. This young woman was fair, but rather slim. He had planned to purchase a girl to help with the household work and he wondered if this one would be strong enough.
Despite the glowing comments of the trader, he had reservations about the girls true health. He could see she had been thoroughly scrubbed and her rough tunic was almost new. Her skin had few blemishes and her timid look revealed bright eyes.
But a bath, some herbs, and a few good meals could give make the surface more appealing that was actually true at the core.
The last thing he wanted was to buy another slave who was sickly. He had made that mistake before. They never preformed well and died so early. It was a waste of time and money.
So his next request to the trader was one that historically has been known as the best indicator of true health.
“Open her mouth and let me see her teeth”.
I am like most Americans who by age 40 have more than 8 missing, decayed, or filled teeth.
I had always brushed and flossed diligently.
But still I’ve had problems.
And by now it was becoming clear to me that dentists didn’t really have the answers.
In my search to find out how to take better care of my teeth I came across a man named Doug Simons. Doug lives very primitively; often living for months roaming the rough terrain of the Gila Wilderness. Doug is an herbalist and healer who has spent a lot of time observing wild animals and working with people who live very simply. Doug’s wanderings have taken him to the northern badlands of Mexico into the Copper Canyons where he regularly meets and trades with tribes like the Tarahumara Indians.
I first met Doug in the shade of a Palo Duro tree in the Sonoran desert. Doug was giving a talk on all the things he had learned about healing teeth from his decades of studying plants and healing.
The techniques he presented made so much sense. His insights were earthy and simple. And what Doug presented was like nothing I had ever heard before.
I tried many of the techniques Doug spoke about and found them to be effective. So I arranged to have Doug’s presentation made into a video.
We have never sold the video before with any discount, but we are going to do so now. If you would like to pick up a copy of Doug’s video “Alternatives To Dentists” click here.
In the video, Doug shows you how to clean your teeth using just a stick – and this is amazingly effective! You’ll feel like you’ve just come out of the hygienist’s chair with really squeaky clean teeth.
Doug shows you the best herbs to use to re-grow enamel. Yes, you can re-grow enamel.
He shows you how to prevent and reverse cavities, and even how to treat abscesses.
This is extremely useful information especially if you are considering the possibility of a grid down situation.
Even at it’s regular price, the video costs much less than even a few moments in a dentists chair.
No, we won’t have this special up for long…. it is a holiday special thing. The link will become inactive by the end of the week.
