2017 is seeing a really deep dive into my health (you can read more about this at ‘Do You Pick and Choose Your Healthy), and as some of you may know part of that has been visiting a biological dentist to have some pretty intensive surgery done. I’ve had my impacted wisdom teeth removed, and 2 teeth that had damaged,infected root canals removed. Its a long, pretty expensive process, but dental health is so important to our overall health and disease prevention that it had to be done.
Now, I’m a big believer that the strength of your teeth and your likelihood of getting cavities has a large part to do with genetics, but of course there is so much we can do to help improve our oral health. Oral health and the health of our teeth, gums and tongue is a real barometer of health, and is vitally important to the health and wellbeing of our whole body. The mouth and gums have direct links to our digestive system and bloodstream, and as we detoxify through our mouths we have to ensure it is thoroughly clean and healthy!
“Without strong, healthy teeth you are less able to properly digest food and absorb the nutrients that you need.
What causes the greatest risk to your health is the infection. As it progresses, the infection releases more toxins into the bloodstream, leading to very serious health risks.”
