Hi Matt,
I love your blogs!! Keep up the good work!!
I just finished reading your 'Raw Spirit' book which I loved and I have a question regarding the tooth whitening supplement called Active H. Does this really work?? because I have never heard of it and it seems to good to be true!! What kind of a supplement is it?? Is it a pill?? a paste?? Where can I get it??
Thanks for any info on this.

I always get this question and I am excited to answer it here in the blog. Here is the excerpt about Active H in my book 'Raw Spirit':

While guzzling delicious vegetable juices and spooning green food supplements, your teeth can easily start to look yellowish and stained. I remember looking in the mirror one day thinking my teeth had rotted; they were such an awful color. Horrified, I assumed my teeth were leaching minerals from the inside out. I refused to go anywhere and couldn't bear to smile. Desperate, I called Dr. Bisci. He explained that my teeth were likely just stained and told me to go to the dentist and get a cleaning; or brush thoroughly with a Sonicare toothbrush while sprinkling on the bristles the supplement Active H. Active H is negatively charged hydrogen ions and is probably the most powerful antioxidant in the United States. Two hours of brushing produced some seriously white teeth. Since then, I learned to rinse my mouth out with water every time I drink a vegetable juice and that helps keep the staining to a minimum. Occasionally, I’ll need to use Active H for another teeth whitening treatment.

Yikes! I remember that week vividly. I was soooo depressed! However, my teeth were Soooooo white after using the Active H, it was MIRACULOUS! Keep in mind that the stains I had came strictly from green food powders, which at that time I was taking masses of. I can't guarantee that it is going to work for any type of tooth stain. Some people have really yellow teeth - maybe from smoking, for example. However, if your teeth are stained from green foods and veggie juices, I can guarantee it will work. I would try it regardless. It's a great supplement to take anyways. It is a bottle of little capsules that contain powder. You just empty the powder out onto your toothpaste, which you've already spread on your tooth brush. When I did it for the first time, I sat there for over an hour just brushing away. My teeth were so WHITE, my friend couldn't believe it. If you do try it, I'd recommend you get a sonicare electric tooth brush and try brushing for a LONG time. Let me know the results. You can get the Active H, HERE.

I'm a raw food teen (19) and I'm new to it but I've healed about a dozen major health problems. I was a cooked vegan before. Anyways I met this good looking guy at Starbucks (I go there for tea) and we are hitting it off. I haven't talked to him on a personal level though. If we go out how do I break it to him that I eat raw food without him running away? When do I tell him and where and how? I'm really nervous and have been up for hours at night tossing around about it. I know that’s sad haha. PLEASE help.
love, K.

Oh Kelsey... I don't think that's 'sad'. The social ramifications when living a lifestyle that less than 1% of the human population follows can be quite difficult. I didn't realize how harsh it was on me until one day at a lecture, I was talking about the social issues I experienced with my family and friends. As I did this, a tear started to run down my face.

Forget the short-term; let's look at the long-term here. Let's say you actually end up being with him for three months. If anyone here is going to have an issue about the relationship, I bet it is you. I can see it now. I can see you sitting at a nice dinner with him as you watch him scarf down Gluten-Filled Pasta topped with STRAIGHT MELTED BUTTER and a slab of a dead carcass to go with it. To finish it off he decides to eat a sugar-laced cake to wash it all down. Oh... and don't forget that goodnight kiss.

Oh man... I think I may have been a bit harsh here. If anyone wants to give Kelsey some advice, email it to me and I'll pass it on to her.

I would be true to yourself and I guarantee that you will meet a man worthy of your Raw Beauty. Being Raw is a bonus, it's HOT! I can count numerous men who have switched over to being Raw, SPARKED by a woman. In the past, women I dated who were not Raw, switched over. They wanted to experience shifts like soft skin, a sweet smell and a stronger vibration for themselves.

Don't get discouraged and start eating in a way that is not true to you. I remember a story of a woman who didn't smoke but all her friends did. The smoke hurt her lungs soooo badly that she couldn't be around her friends anymore. She decided to take up smoking so she could be with her friends. She became very addicted and got cancer. Many people don't stay Raw for the same reason. They want to eat with their friends, so they start eating like their peers, at expense to their own well-being.

Matt, thank you for the very informative post today. Really appreciate what you share on all your posts,actually! I was wondering this: I tried Colosan about 3 weeks ago (after noticing it posted on your blog!) and think it is a very good product. After just using it for only one week the skin on my face really improved alot! My question is - how do you recommend using Colosan. After viewing that colon video on your site (wow!) I feel even more sensitive about colon health (and water quality!) ... should I use it in a regular - even daily - way?...(I was thinking about using it per the instructions on the bottle next week for a week).Hope you have the chance to respond.Kindest regards,Sharon

Yes, do it like the bottle says. I would do it for as long as they say to do it. Let me know the results. Then I can share them with my mom and hopefully she'll take it. Doing colon hydrotherapy WHILE doing the Colosan will give you the ultimate skin beautifying results. WHOA!!!!

Hi Matt,

I have a question: My wife and I just finished a 15 day juice “feast” cleanse (loved it, the best ever!). Our intention is now to continue the adventure with as raw a diet as possible. One symptom both of us felt after drinking our green juice during the cleanse was feeling very cold in our hands and feet, & very sensitive to cool weather.
I am curious what would remedy the ”coldness” that the “take me off your list” lady you mentioned in your newsletter experienced. Just add warming herbs? Avoid/add certain foods? Just give it more time, a more transitional diet?


Also, I am curious if you have any experience using cold pressed apricot oil internally?

I’ve tried various teeth whitening products for the past 2+ years. The majority of the products are either a hassle to use, don’t give me the results I want, or they hurt my teeth/gums. It’s been mainly whitening toothpaste and whitening strips because I can’t afford (nor does my insurance cover) dentist whitening.
I’m starting to use a new whitening kit I saw in InStyle Magazine called Pro-White. I think I like it because I’m seeing more upfront results right away. I was somewhat skeptical at first because they guarantee “10 shades whiter in 10 days”, but I can see a noticeable difference. They’ve got various kits available. It costs a little more than whitening strips, but I don’t think it’s overly expensive. I found a $10 off coupon on the internet so that helped ( ).
I’m just hoping the results are long-term rather than temporary! =)

Interesting post about Natural Tooth Whitener?!, in these days tooth whitening is more common and people have to try to be careful with their health, for example I unfortunately buy viagra only because I need it and well Im close to be a senior citizen.

Wow! Your raw detox diet is intriguing and I hope to learn more from it. On the topic of teeth whitening, whatever you consume can affect the color of your teeth due to its natural dyes, especially teas, fruits, and coffee. I once asked my dentist in Murrells Inlet about the stains on my teeth and he recommended a solution that can be found on your kitchen- a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda.

After a few applications by brushing the solution on your teeth for 2 minutes at most, my teeth was rid of stains and it is whiter than I've ever imagined. Maybe due to my massive consumption of wine at the restaurant for many months my dentist at the Murrells Inlet, SC dentists' clinic told me to get my teeth checked again to see if the whitening has worked and to lessen my wine intake.

Hi Matt! Teeth coloration is very discomforting. Primarily because it affects the quality of one's smile. My brother encountered the same problem and he immediately consulted his (Sevierville) dentist. Prior to trying any product it's definitely best to consult an expert!

Very informative post. Thanks!

I believe the safe way to "whiten" teeth is to naturally strengthen them. Thanks for such a nice blog.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement and is used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth.Dentists do it very carefully this process is very painful to put the teeth by replacing the old one.There is one more technique mainly used for gum recession known as pinhole gum surgical technique as in this process a gum tissue is placed over the gum line to prevent gum recession problem and there is no cutting no grafting is used in this technique and it is less painful.
