Basically, at one point, I was getting ~all my water from a highly-filtered source.
I soon found myself having very sensitive teeth.
I’d heard something awhile back about how even though it’s sterile and clean, that actually drinking Distilled or Deionized Water is really bad for you.
And on another forum through some weird coincidence, it turns out a guy was killing his plants by watering them with distilled water.
->So: I thought, “What the hell, Sensodyne is only doing so much.” -and I ordered up a few packets of Burton Water Salts via Williams Brewing that I remembered from my home-brewing experiments.
Strangely enough, I’d discovered that the water from the highly-filtered source made home brew that tasted like crap.
So, I figured out a dosage based on the calcs for Beer that I’d seen. Roughly 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water.
-And sure enough, within about a week, week and a half my sensitive teeth were no longer sensitive at all.
So here’s the question: if there are people in situations similar to mine, where they’re not getting enough of the proper Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium salts in their diet, can this treatment help them, too?
BIG NOTE: I tried things like Calcium supplement pills, TUMS Calcium, etc. and although they did help a bit,
Nothing and I mean -NOTHING- helped as much as having these mineral salts dissolved in my water.
Since I’ve been putting Burton Water Salts into my Extremely-Filtered, Ultra-Soft water, I haven’t even taken Calcium supplements outside of a multivitamin since my teeth were fixed.
Some food for thought.
OTHER BIG NOTE: -Obviously, if your situation is sensitive in any way to Calcium, Potassium, Sodium, or Magnesium, (as with any info/crazy ideas you find on or off-line) you’re going to want to run everything by your doctor(s) before you make any decisions about your supplementation.
Ex: Some blood-pressure medication does not do well with either Sodium or Potassium.
