Updated Toothpaste Question

14 posts in this topic

I know there is lots on toothpaste, I've searched it all up, but I am just curious what exact brand and type everyone is using right now and how come?

I'm not really sure what to go with for toothpaste =/

Likely come down to cost I imagine.

I'm just curious who's using specialty toothpaste and who uses stuff from let's say, Walmart.

I use Crest, Colgate or Aquafresh, all of which are gluten free. My teeth are very sensitive so I must use the sensitive variety.

Tom's of Maine Fennel because it's the easiest fluoride-free toothpaste to find around here and I like the taste. It's also gluten-free, of course.

I also use Tom's of Maine but the cinnemint flavor. I have also used crest and colgate.

I like Colgate Total...at least it's inexpensive and available everywhere.

I brush with Dr. Bronner's liquid castile soap and baking soda. I had to experiment using something homemade because Tom's got too expensive for me and I wanted to avoid as many chemicals as possible. It works, but the soap taste is especially strong.

Hi all,

I need to eliminate salicylates and gluten, and I don't want floride in my toothpaste. The toothpaste I currently use is salicylate and floride free but I can't tell if it's gluten free. The ingredients that aren't on the gluten-free safe or not-safe lists are:

sodium lauryl sarcocinate

calcium pyrophosphate

cinnamon flavor

I'm using Cleure cinnamon toothpaste. It's yummy, but again, I do not know it's gluten status as I am only mildly sensitive and have not yet done an elimination diet. Since it doesn't say, I'm figuring that it would not be appropriate for the highly sensitive. Their number for inquiry: 888-883-4276

I called and left a message for them to contact me about these ingredients, and if I hear back, I'll post the result. Please let me know if you already know this or are able to reach them when you call.

btw, I am also trying their deodorant stick (one of those crystal mineral things) and it actually works! This eliminates salicylate and aluminum in my deodorant. It only contains potassium alum. The spray and roll-on types also contain water. Potassium alum is not on the safe or not-safe lists, although many other potassium salts are on the safe list. I did not ask about this when I called.

Thanks,

energi

Energi, I just read about using MILK OF MAGNESIA, of all things, as a deodorant. They say that even people who needed extra strong deodorant find that this works better. I'm thinking about trying it.

I have been using Arm and Hammer toothpaste. I haven't seen any info on it one way or the other, but I just LOVE that stuff. I used to like their gum too, but I can't find it here in the Black Hills.

If someone comes on here and tells me Arm and Hammer is not gluten free (as I fear they will), I suppose I could use a different brand and mix baking soda with it...

I received a call back from Cleure. Good news! Everything from them is gluten free!

The boys use colgate the kids strawberry flavor. Up until recently I used Crest. I found some Tom's of Main and decided to try it and loved the way it made my teeth feel. It makes them feel like you just left the dentist. Hubby and kids don't like the taste so I'll buy them the kids Colgate or hubby the Crest.

Cool. I'm happy with the Cleure stuff for now (easy application, and I know it works for me), but checked up on the ingredients of the Milk of Magnesia. I would probably go with the original because the mint would be a salicylate issue for me and I don't like the idea of all the added ingredients (like food coloring) in the cherry type.

The Cleure toothpaste has baking soda as a base. I've never liked the taste of baking soda, and could never stomach using it alone, but I can use it with no taste issues. The Arm & Hammer I found had mint and flouride, so it wasn't for me.

Noticed your signature concerning the floridation of water... I'm using distilled water for drinking and cooking, because tap water was consistently causing me nausea for whatever reason. Filter systems were not enough. The only bottled water I've been getting away with is distilled and SmartWater®. In summer bottled distilled is not acceptable, because all I can taste is the plastic of the bottles; it's like drinking from a wading pool. I purchased a home distiller.

when in doubt you could always use baking soda as a tooth paste :)

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
