CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF TOOTHPASTE
The ingredients of toothpaste, when used in tandem with tooth brushing, aid in oral hygiene goals such as plaque removal, decay resistance, promotion of remineralization, tooth cleansing and polishing, tooth stain removal, and breath freshening. The solid phase of the paste (a blend of agents) is typically suspended in a polyalcohol (e.g., aqueous glycerol or sorbitol) via a suspending agent. Also called dentifrice, toothpaste is composed of the following cleaning ingredients (in approximate volume percentages):
It is well known by now that the health of the mouth indicates the health of the living organism. The beginning of digestion and the immune system begin with this organ. The foods we ingest contain spiritual energy as well as nutritional energy. We use our mouth to speak, communicate, taste, touch, sing, make sounds, chew, ruminate and much more. When receiving chemotherapy ulcers appear in the mouth, the tooth enamel deteriorates, it becomes difficult to swallow, the skin dries and cracks, inflammation increases, and many other symptoms.
Cancer & Homeopathy by Dr Jean-Lionel Bagot
The treatment of cancer has made enormous progress in recent years, yet sufferers frequently have to endure numerous side effects, taking a serious toll on their quality of life.
Dr Jean-Lionel Bagot and his team in Strasbourg have been very successful in treating the various side effects of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery and hormone therapy for many years. With homeopathy as supplementary treatment, these side effects, as well as other problems resulting from the illness itself, can be noticeably reduced.
In this definitive work Dr Bagot describes systematically and in detail which homeopathic remedies have proved effective for particular side effects – including nausea, sensory disturbances, loss of hair, mouth ulcers during chemotherapy, fatigue and pain after surgery, psychological problems, a weakened immune system, and skin irritation caused by radiotherapy.
Dr Bagot sees four thousand cancer patients a year and therefore has great experience and expertise in this area. His advice is very specific and to the point. For each type of chemotherapy, he offers targeted homeopathic guidelines to combat the side effects of each particular medicine.
Homeopathy is shown to be the perfect complement to conventional treatment. The book is written in an accessible style with user-friendly recommendations. It is an invaluable tool both for patients and for physicians.
”This book is a gold mine of practical advice to deal as well as possible with the toxicity of conventional treatments and to cope with daily life."

Please ref Materia Medica of Boericke, reprint of 1988,page: 295 Fragaria (wood strawberry) is said to remove tartar from teeth, has anyone from our community have tried Fragaria? I could not get it in the local homeo pharmacy.
Not till now, shall try to get this...
I cannot comment on whether the average commercial toothpaste can affect the workings of a homeopathic remedy. My speculation is that it could as quite often toothpaste has a mint flavor to it in addition to all the chemical additives mentioned in this article. What I can do is share the ingredients I use to make my own toothpaste. I don't use a recipe but have seen some natural recipes out there for anyone who requires this. What I use is unrefined organic virgin coconut oil, baking soda(preferably aluminum free), sea salt(or pink himalayan salt), neem powder(or paste), and myrrh essential oil. Myrrh essential oil(Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antitumoral, analgesic, anti-infectious, antiviral, anti-parasitic, antiseptic, astringent and tonic) is exceedingly great for any kind of oral health issue. The neem, salt and baking soda are slightly abrasive and good for helping to remove plaque - they also help add body to the coconut oil. I make it in small batches and keep it in a cool place as the coconut oil will tend to liquify at slightly warmer than room temp. It could still be used even if melted a bit(and it's easier to initially mix it when it is slightly warmed and soft.) One can adjust the levels of baking soda and salt according to how abrasive you might like your toothpaste to be. When I make it next, I will try to create a more specific recipe, but I encourage anyone to try making their own. It's so much cheaper than buying toothpaste, is SO much better for your oral hygiene and is fluoride-free.
That is great. Thanks..
