Fluorine belongs to the micronutrients and is an acid-forming quantitative element.

We know fluorine or fluoride mainly from fluoride toothpaste.

Fluoride occurs in nature in optimal quantities for us. We find it in practically all foods and in drinking water. It is more important to watch out for an excess than for a deficiency, because too much fluoride has a toxic effect on us & can lead to numerous diseases. An overdose manifests itself in nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting.

I am of the opinion that caries is not caused by a fluoride deficiency, but rather by a less than optimal diet.

It has been proven that fluoride has a negative effect on the brain. It inhibits the function of the pineal gland. The pineal gland promotes good sleep, strengthens our concentration and multi-tasking. Fluoride also destroys enzymes and can lead to calcium deficiency. Fluoride also impairs kidney function. Fluoride-containing medicines even weaken our thyroid gland.

For this reason, our table salt and toothpaste at home are fluoride-free. I make the toothpaste myself. My children (2 and 11) have no caries and regularly visit the municipal dental clinic.

Function of fluoride

Fluoride protects our teeth from decay, strengthens tooth enamel, bone density & inhibits the proliferation of bacteria.


Daily requirement

According to the SGE, the optimal daily amount for an adult person is between 3.1mg and 3.8mg. For children, the value is between 0.25mg and 3.2mg.


Plantbased soureces

These foods are fluoride-containing plant sources:

  • Drinking water

  • Fluoride table salt

  • Oatmeal

Fluorine is found in other foods. Its content depends on the value of the soil.


Dental health

Homemade toothpaste is simple to make. Ideally, a toothpaste is edible and with homemade products, the ingredients can be controlled. Here I share my recipe:

▽2EL coconut oil (antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory).

▽1TL baking soda (dissolves dental plaque, reduces odours).

▽1TL turmeric (whitens teeth, but I leave it out for the children)

▽2TL xylitol sugar (has been proven to reduce tooth decay)

▽1/4TL cinnamon (anti-inflammatory)

▽3 drops of essential oil (e.g. peppermint, bergamot...)

Blend all ingredients for 30 seconds with a hand blender. Pour into a container. Done.

From time to time I also like to use activated charcoal. It makes the teeth nice and white and binds toxins and odours effectively.
