3 Steps To The Healthiest Mouth (And Less Headaches Too)

A few months ago, I wrote an article that highlights how the balance of bacteria in your gut can make a difference in your mood, your memory… even treating autism! Today’s medical study highlights this delicate balance even further.   Could it be that the bacteria that live in your mouth affect your body’s health? Turns out, the answer is yes… …the bacteria in our mouth can actually trigger migraine. Here’s how:   Nitrates have long been revealed as a headache trigger — found in foods like red wine, chocolates, processed meats and some cheeses, migraine sufferers have long been […]

Healthy Teeth Even If You Never Brush?

Is it possible to have healthy teeth even if you hate to brush? Yes!   In fact, in my family, I have one child who brushes sparingly and never uses any toothpaste at all. My son uses only a toothbrush and water, no toothpaste. Interestingly, the child who absolutely never uses toothpaste (the cute little guy buried in sand to the left) is the ONLY ONE OF US who has had absolutely zero cavities. Nada. None. Zilch.   So I’ve started seeing toothpaste as just a simple, yet optional, way to add some enjoyment to the toothbrushing process. And I’m

My Fav Toothpastes…

    I love love love this toothpaste. It tastes like you dipped your toothbrush in baking soda, then squeezed a fresh lemon over the top. And that’s because that is pretty much the ingredient list on this pure, organic, high quality toothpaste. I love brushing with baking soda… washing your oral muscosa and teeth with baking soda is a fabulous way to re-set your mouth’s pH every morning and every evening… it is gentle on your teeth and neutralizing for breath, too.   I am also a big fan of just sprinkling your toothbrush with baking soda and brushing,

Thoughts on Health… Toothpaste.

To use fluoride toothpaste or not… that is the question. Well, if that is the question, here is my answer… we don’t.   If you do a web search on fluoride, you’ll find a million and one articles ranging from rants on fluoride being rat poison to being responsible for causing sudden death in the dentist’s chair. Reading through those articles is almost enough to make me dismiss anti-fluoride claims all together and return to the *safety* of fluoride toothpaste. Almost.   Because after going through great pains to weed through the inflammatory and hyper-fear-based information out there on fluoride,
