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 :)

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
