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 :)

    • Oh i hope so!! I'm really anxious about the procedure as I've never done it before. I've been through operations but never an endoscopy and the thought of it is really scaring me! Thank you for giving me some courage! 
    • You are right, the tests could be invalid.   All the celiac tests require you to be on a gluten-containing diet.  It is up to you to decide if you want to go gluten free.  You can do it.  Believe me, I know.  Hubby is not officially diagnosed.  He went gluten-free 15 years ago, based on the rather poor advice from my allergist and his GP.  It worked though.  But he would be the first to tell you that I have had way more support in terms of family and medical.    We think he has it.  Both of our families are riddled with autoimmine disorders.  I am the first to be diagnosed.   My Aunt went gluten free per the advice of her Chiropractor.  Her other doctors never suspected celiac disease.  The diet obviously worked for her.  Her daughter (my cousin) is a nurse.  She had an endoscopy but they did not check for celiac disease.  She chose to go gluten-free too since it worked for her mom.  Both will not do a gluten challenge.  However, my diagnosis has helped them get proper medical treatment.  My Aunt is very active in a celiac support group.    Now everyone in my family knows about celiac disease.  My own niece was just diagnosed with Crohn's, but her GI did test and will continue to test her for celiac disease.  You can develop additional autoimmune disorders at any time.   So far, a few other members have been tested.  No one else had had a celiac disease diagnosis yet.  Time will tell.  If I can save someone from the misery of struggling to get a diagnosis, then I can feel good.   Now, an official diagnosis will help you adhere to the diet .  You can get follow-up care.  Get checked for other things like SIBO, H. Pylori and cancer.  But ultimately, it is up to you.   Whatever you decided to do, please consider a family health history chart.  You might someday help a grandchild.   The stool tests?  In all my research, leading celiac experts do not recommend them.  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/ gene testing?  Some 30% of the poulation carries the celiac genes.  It just tells you that you have the chance to develop celiac disease.  It can not diagnose you.    
    • The procedure is a breeze. You will go in, be sedated and go to sleep for a short nap and then it's over. Some people will have a bit of a sore throat but not everyone does. For me the hardest part of the endo was not being able to drink coffee when I got up. You seem to have been back on gluten for long enough to have the test but as CLady said there is a good chance your blood work may be negative. In your case you may want to continue eating gluten after the biopsy at least until you get your blood results. If they are negative consider going a bit longer and getting them redone.
    • I think the gene tests are accurate.  Not sure if thier interpretation of them is.   If you actually think have Celiac, you need to know that.  You  need to know how careful you must be.  You need a diagnosis to get gluten-free food in hospitals or nursing homes (if you can find one that does gluten-free food).  Because thsese "stool tests" are not medically accepted, it is unlikely that a real medical facility will consider you to have Celiac.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Why would your doctor order an endoscopy and check for celiac disease, but not order a celiac panel?  Had you been gluten free already?
