    Has anybody found a brand of toothpaste or gum that are safe for a candida diet?

    I’ve been using baking soda to brush but apparently that is really hard on the enamel. Also, it would be nice to have something to chew on [sic] after a meal out or whatever.

    Cheers, friends.

    I’ve been looking for a healthy toothpaste for years…

    I now use Weleda Salt Toothpaste and brush gently with a radius toothbrush. I would think this would be hard on the enamel too. They list key ingredients on their web site http://usa.weleda.com/our-products/shop/salt-toothpaste.aspx – They normally have good products but Gee I can’t help but wonder what the non-key ingredients might be.
    I have tried others but many of them have carrageenan which I now avoid due to the controversy around it.

    I am preparing to begin the Candida Detox and Diet so I need to consider all my products too.

    I also use Eco-dent VeganFloss Premium Dental Floss Cinnamon
    Ingredients: Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) was, Oryza sativa (rice) bran was, Cinnamomum Cassia Leaf oil, Anethole, Melaleuca Alternifolia Leaf (tea tree) oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (orange) oil, Citrus Medica Limonum (lemon) Peel oil, Foeniculum Vulgare (fennel) oil, Illicium Verum (anise) oil, Pelagonium Graveolens Flower oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (bergamot) Fruit oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (lavender) oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (rosemary) Leaf oil, Ocimum Basilicum (basil) oil, Rose Flower oil.

    Don’t do gum but I like to chew on Tea Tree Therapy Toothpicks Cinnamon after dinner. Got mine at Whole Foods but they can be found online too.

    Thanks for bringing up the subject.

    Burt’s bee toothpaste and tom’s are generally respected and high quality toothpaste’s that don’t have any bad ingredients. Burt’s makes one with maltodextrin, but in the ingredient list, it is the one in the lowest amount so shouldn’t really set you back whatsoever.

    I use the Desert Essence Tooth Paste it does not have any iffy ingredients:

    Not cheap as it cost around $8 per tube but it does last for about a month.

    I am considering trying these two toothpastes:

    Redmond Trading Company Earthpaste Natural Toothpaste Peppermint
    http://www.vitacost.com/redmond-trading-company-earthpaste-natural-toothpaste-peppermint-4-oz
    or
    Tooth Soap Pepper Whip — 1 oz
    http://www.vitacost.com/tooth-soap-pepper-whip

    Years ago Tom’s of Maine was bought out by Colgate-Palmolive Co.
    Most of Tom’s toothpastes now have things I don’t want like carrageenan and/or sodium lauryl sulfate and/or titanium dioxide.

    Burt’s Bees Toothpastes are their way out being discontinued.
    https://www.burtsbees.com/natural-products/toothpaste/natural-toothpaste-multicare-without-fluoride.html

    I avoid Carrageenan because it is very controversial.
    It is in many toothpastes which otherwise ‘look’ healthy.

    Mix Baking soda with equal parts coconut oil, its really good. i also add a few drops of mint essential oil for that tooth paste taste.

    🙂 I used to to baking soda on its own but this is way better

    I’ve used Fennal (sp?) seeds to chew on. They’re great for bad breath or after meals. In the spice section. As for toothpaste I used only baking soda for years and am also looking for a safe one. Sensodyne is the only one that keeps pain away for me but am sure it’s not safe:(

    The tooth soap looks like a good product. They sell a tooth soap that is plain so that you can add whatever essential oil you like at any given time.

    Be careful with some specials. They might be products that have been siting on the shelf too long and they are trying to get rid of them before they expire/discontinuing the product. I usually like to order products directly from the company and I make a request to send me the product with the latest expiration date possible. This way you get the freshest product possible. This is important if your ordering anything that is food based…fish oil, coconut oil etc..

    I was watching the Dr. Oz show and chewing on fennel seed also reduces bloating. 🙂

    Seriously, we even have to change our toothpaste even though we don’t swallow it!?
