RBTI Perspective of Xerostomia


Xerostomia is a medical term that refers to problem with “dry mouth” — lack adequate saliva. Though we don’t hear the word commonly used, researchers estimate that xerostomia has a prevalence of about 20% in the general population. They also point out that it appears to be increasing because people are living longer and suffering from more chronic illnesses, for which the treatments can cause xerostomia as an adverse side effect. Dry mouth can especially be an aggravating factor in dental disease.

Recently, I noticed that an ad has appeared promoting a substance formulated to counteract dry mouth. I have no idea how well it works. However, researchers, last year at the University of Manchester, United Kingdom, reviewed research literature to score randomized controlled trials of topical therapies for dry mouth. They found 36 studies of treatments such as lozenges, sprays, mouth rinses, gels, oils, chewing gum and toothpaste.

The treatments in the review broke down into 2 broad categories: saliva substitutes, in which some other substance is intended to perform the role of the patient’s own saliva, and saliva stimulants, which are intended to activate the patient’s own mechanism for producing saliva. Two of the trials compared saliva stimulants with placebos, 9 compared saliva substitutes with placebos, 5 compared saliva stimulants with saliva substitutes, 18 compared 2 or more saliva substitutes with each other, and 2 compared 2 or more saliva stimulants with each other.

The researchers found convincing evidence that 1 saliva substitute, oxygenated glycerol triester saliva spray, was statistically more effective than another, an electrolyte spray. This corresponded to an approximate mean difference of 2 points on a 10-point visual analog scale in which patients rate their mouth dryness. However, this evidence did not actually prove that either substitute was useful for treating dry mouth, the researchers admitted. On the other hand, dentists admit that there is no one-size-fits-all treatment for dry mouth. Rather they admit that finding a treatment or answer for dry mouth can only be done by trial and error methods.

I have drawn your attention to the above, to emphasize one glaring fact. In all the research done regarding dry mouth, no one has researched the part that diet can play in causing xerostomia. However, Dr. Carey Reams discovered one commonly used substance in the diet that can cause dry mouth. That substance is Sea Salt. Yet, sea salt continues to be ever more widely promoted and used in total ignorance of its detrimental effect upon the electrochemistry of the human body.

Take a look at the diagram to the right. It outlines why, from the RBTI Perspective, sea salt is considered a poison not a panacea. It contains seven basic groups of mineral salts: chloride group, sodium group, sulfate group, magnesium group, calcium group, potassium group, and then the minor group. Within the minor group are mineral salts of carbon, bromine, boron, strontium and fluorine to mention a few. Plain table salt, on the other hand, contains only two of the groups of minerals found in sea salt. This makes sea salt not only saltier but it also possesses a large number of different salts compared with the same amount of plain table salt

The electrochemistry of the human body is constantly working on removing leftover and waste salts that have accumulated, in the body’s fluids, due to the metabolic result of diet and lifestyle. When these salts become excessive in various intracellular and extracellular fluids, they can be not only very dehydrating, altering and upsetting to the distribution of body fluids, but electrically irritating as well as congestive. Putting sea salt into the fluid of the human body can be compared to putting 7+ times more salt in a recipe

Dr. Reams tells this story to illustrate why sea salt can be a major contributor to dry mouth. “”One day a lady came in to see me and said, “Doctor, I have not had any saliva in my mouth for 6 years.” I said, “Do you use sea salt?” “Why, yes,” she said. “When did you start,” I asked. “Six years ago,” she said. I said, “Quit using sea salt and the saliva will come back into your mouth.” Three days and it did.”” Dr Reams usually goes on to say after telling that story. “When everything fails to give you an angina heart attack, and you just have to have one, use sea salt. It will collect in the muscles and fat of your system — especially the muscles lining your arteries and veins. Salt causes irritation and weakening of the smooth muscle lining of your arteries and veins. This results in the loss of the ability of your blood vessels to expand and contract.” RBTI reveals that Sea Salt does not add any nutritional value to the human body, rather, it only complicates and contributes electrochemical stress to this environment as it is considered, by RBTI, to be 49 times more salty than regular table salt. If extra salt is needed in the diet, use only table salt, which is mined salt that contains only sodium chloride.

The RBTI program reveals all sorts of dietary and lifestyle fads that have no intrinsic value to human health whatsoever. Sea Salt use is one of those health fads that unfortunately continues to spread because of ignorance to the human dietary electrochemistry. Reams Biological Theory of Ionization holds the keys to change all of that for those wanting to learn the real answers not the fad answers.
