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, 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 :)

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
