Oral health is often overlooked when a person switches to a healthier lifestyle. I often see people who have changed their eating habits, exercise habits and sleep habits but who are still using the same chemical ridden oral health products.
The same rule applies to toothpaste and oral health products that applies to anything we put in our mouths: If you can’t pronounce the ingredients or order them individually without being a chemist…. avoid them!
I’ve mentioned before about how oral health can drastically impact the health of the body, but it seems that science is just starting to scratch the surface on this topic.
Natural Oral Health Products:
The good news is that switching to natural toothpaste and other oral health products is often easier than switching diet, exercise or (*ahem*) getting enough sleep. This week’s mini-challenge focuses on getting the bad products out of your mouth and out of your house!
Contrary to conventional wisdom, it is possible to reverse cavities and remineralize teeth, and we must start thinking of our mouths as an integral part of our bodies that need proper nourishment.It turns out that our overall health and nourishment can even effect whether or not we need braces as kids or how many cavities we get.
I’ve been making my own remineralizing toothpaste for about a year now, and been using it in conjunction with OraWellness Products. In that time, I have had no new cavities, and several areas that the dentist was waiting to fill at my next appointment weren’t there when I went back! It also used to take them a long time to scrape down my teeth at each appointment, and now it literally takes a couple of minutes at most.
I’m happy to say that these methods work much better than the conventional methods I’d used previously, and I don’t have to worry about the toxic chemicals! (Did you know that eating a tube of fluoride toothpaste can kill a child! We don’t even keep it in the house anymore!)
The Heal Thy Mouth System is a complete method for reversing gum disease, pockets in the gums and other mouth problems. It includes their Brushing Blend, a Bass toothbrush, an irrigation system for the gums, and video and written tutorials and help. The educational materials will help you target your problem areas and get rid of the bacteria that cause gum disease and tooth decay. Several of my family members have had great success with this system and I’d recommend it, especially if you have gum disease or other dental problems.
