Poor oral health contributes to 6 common diseases

“Giving up junk food.” “Getting off the sofa.” “Quitting smoking.” These are the common, and beneficial, lifestyle changes that many people adopt when they become serious about avoiding heart disease and cancer. But, what about poor oral health? (does your doctor appreciate the danger?) I understand: making an appointment with a licensed dental hygienist just doesn’t have the same sense of urgency as seeing your cardiologist for a checkup – but, maybe it should. When it comes to preventing chronic, life-threatening diseases, maintaining good oral health may be one of the more important things you can do. Sadly, there are literally millions and millions of people that walk uninformed about how gum disease can set the stage for six serious diseases. Keep in mind, these horrific health problems are completely avoidable –… Read More

Dental fillings with mercury can cause over 30 chronic health conditions!

(via NaturalHealth365) If you think the only thing to fear from a dental visit is some discomfort, think again. Conventional dentistry practices, like putting dental fillings loaded with mercury in the mouth, are exposing the body to neurotoxic heavy metals and increasing the risk of systemic infections – which lead to many chronic health conditions. Dental amalgam fillings are made of material containing between 43 and 54 percent mercury, a known neurotoxin. While people with an above average number of fillings are known to excrete as much as 10 times the mercury of someone with no fillings, that level can be reduced by 90 percent if the fillings are removed and replaced with safer material. The link between mercury-based, dental fillings and chronic illness The National Institute for Health’s extensive epidemiological study,… Read More

The Cavity-Reversing Tooth Powder That Makes Going to the Dentist Unnecessary

The food choices modern people make directly affect their oral health. Unfortunately, most of them make poor choices and this is the reason why there are so many cases of tooth decay today. Dr. Weston Price, a respected dentist, says that tooth decay begins inside our body. Beans, seeds, nuts and grains contain phytic acid and this acid has proven to be problematic. Namely, phytic acid is a phosphorus form found in plants. It is very common in grains and some seeds. Obviously, this acid is packed with phosphorus, a mineral that has a molecule similar to a snowflake. In one-stomached animals and humans this mineral is not bio-available right away. Besides stopping the immediate availability of phosphorus, the specific form of the molecule of phytic acid allows it to attach to… Read More

Dental Composites Linked To Behavioral Issues In Children.

Research published in the journal Pediatrics indicates that some dental composites — long promoted as overall safer than mercury-based amalgams — are having a significant negative impact on the psychosocial functioning of children. In fact, bisphenol-A based dental restorations were found to be worse than mercury-based amalgams when it came to learning impairment and behavioral issues. [i] The study used data from The New England Children’s Amalgam Trial, which, surprisingly, found that children randomized to amalgam restorations had better psychosocial outcomes than those assigned to bisphenol-A based epoxy resin composites (bisGMA) for tooth restorations. The new analysis aimed to “examine whether greater exposure to dental composites is associated with psychosocial problems in children.” The results of the study, which looked at a group of 534 children, 6 to 10 years old,  were… Read More

Ozonated Olive Oil Promotes Oral Health

The use of oxygen in complementary therapies has been gaining momentum in recent years, particularly in the area of dentistry.
