Dental Care -

     All disease starts in the mouth!...   As incredible as it may seem, most of the chronic and infectious illnesses that trouble our society today are influenced by the health of our mouths. Our mouths are a reflection of the health inside our bodies. If you have poor dental health, you are bound to have other health problems. Despite regular brushing and flossing, 98 percent of the population has some degree of gum disease or tooth decay. Recent research has demonstrated a direct link between oral health and chronic illness.

     If you have bad breath, bleeding gums, cavities, or tooth pain....  If you suffer from asthma, diabetes, arthritis, migraine headaches, or any chronic illness, and have not found relief, improving dental health could be the solution you need. More brushing, flossing, and mouthwash will help, but won't solve the underlying problem.... ACIDITY!

     Acid forming food or drink (think soda, milk, meats, sweets, etc.) that remain in the mouth raises the acid level around the teeth. An acidic environment allows bacteria growth, which causes inflammation, plaque build-up and gum disease. Acid saliva furthers de-mineralizes the teeth, resulting in cavity formation.

     Since your mouth is the main entrance to your body, these bacteria, oral pathogens and toxins can make their way to other parts of your body through your bloodstream and potentially cause secondary infections, chronic inflammation and disease.

     Natural Tooth Powders and Mouthwash help to raise the pH level, making the saliva more alkaline and also helps to re-mineralize the teeth.

 
Natural Tooth Powder....
tooth powder

Tooth Powder vs. Tooth Paste...   Commercial Tooth paste usually contains cheap fillers, toxic fluoride, glycerin, artificial flavorings and other synthetic ingredients. The mega companies with their big bucks have fancy marketing words and claims, making everyone think this is the norm. You could do better, just brushing with baking soda alone.

Natural Tooth Powders....  contain herbs and other ingredients which supply minerals and nutrients to your teeth and gums. The herbs are potent and naturally discourage bacterial growth. Other natural ingredients help to balance pH, supply minerals and absorb toxins. Herbal Tooth Powder can help with many tooth and gum problems such as gingivitis, pyorrhea, bleeding, plaque formation, sores, loose teeth, inflammation and others.

An acidic pH is a major cause of tooth decay...  The pH of our saliva is influenced by the food we eat and the bacteria present in our mouth. Enamel is composed of minerals, primarily calcium and phosphate. An acidic oral environment (pH less than 7) disrupts the enamel, weakens the tooth and allows minerals to leech out. This process is known as demineralization and this leads to decay.

Re-mineralization....   Re-mineralization occurs when calcium, phosphorus and other minerals and trace elements from the saliva and other sources reabsorb and strengthen the teeth. In order for re-mineralization to occur, the teeth must be clean and free from any glycerin or sugar (think candy or soft drinks) - which can coat the teeth and prevent re-mineralization.

Earth Song’s Herbal Tooth Powder Ingredients....

Bentonite Clay Powder.... is an edible clay from naturally occurring volcanic ash that binds to and draws out impurities and toxins. The high mineral content of the clay helps to re-mineralize the teeth and heal decay. It is also alkaline which balances the mouth’s pH. Bentonite clay is a very mild abrasive that gently scrubs to remove tartar, clean the gums and polish teeth.

Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda).... has an alkaline pH of 8.1 and will neutralize the acids in the mouth. This promotes tooth re-mineralization making the teeth more cavity-resistant. Besides removing odors and freshening the breath, baking soda acts as a very mild abrasive for cleansing and polishing away stains and plaque build up.

Sea salt.... is a crucial ingredient as it also helps to heal mouth sores and irritated gums. Salt is a powerful antibacterial agent and also does the very important job of neutralizing acid-creating bacteria.

White oak bark.... anti-inflammatory, astringent

Myrrh gum powder.... astringent, stimulating and healing

Golden seal.... natural antibiotic, healing and cleansing

Cinnamon.... not only tastes great, but it is another potent antibacterial that freshens breath and keeps cavities at bay. It is also good for digestion which makes it perfect for using right after meals.

Cloves.... are antiseptic as well as antimicrobial, and are often used to relieve toothaches. This pain relieving herb combats strong breath and the underlying infections that cause it.

Essential oils.... are used for their antibacterial and antiseptic qualities. They also help sooth the gums and freshen the mouth.

Oil Pulling....   Simple Ancient Practice...   Remarkable Health Benefits!
 
   oil pulling practice Oil Pulling Therapy is one of the most powerful, most effective methods of detoxification and healing in natural medicine. The science behind oil pulling is fully documented with references to medical studies and case histories. Although incredibly powerful, Oil Pulling Therapy is completely safe and simple enough for even a child.

What is Oil Pulling?.....   Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic practice dating back thousands of years. They knew then that oral pathogens and toxins can make their way to other parts of your body through your bloodstream and potentially cause secondary infections, chronic inflammation and disease. Because your mouth is the main “gateway” to your body, oil pulling can lessen your body’s toxic load by pulling out these pathogens, preventing their spread to other areas of your body.

What are the health benefits?.....  Besides inhibiting bacteria that can lead to plaque buildup, cavities, and gum disease, oil pulling can help with a multitude of health issues. Many people that practice oil pulling have reported rapid relief from systemic health problems such as arthritis, inflammation, diabetes and heart disease. When done correctly, oil pulling has a significant cleansing, detoxifying and healing effect.

How do you do “oil pulling”?.....   Oil pulling is simple. Basically, it involves rinsing your mouth with about a tablespoon of coconut or sesame oil, much like you would using a mouthwash. The oil is “worked” around your mouth by pushing, pulling, and drawing it through your teeth for a period of about 15 minutes. This process allows the oil to neutralize and “pull out” bacteria, viruses, fungi and other debris. After working the oil around for 15 minutes, spit it out and rinse your mouth with water. Do NOT swallow the oil as it’s loaded with bacteria and toxins.

Oral and Gut Flora - the connection.....   Consuming naturally fermented foods and incorporating “oil pulling” with coconut oil are two effective ways of balancing your oral and gut flora, which will improve your oral health, as well as your overall health. The bacteria in your mouth and gut are interrelated, and as you improve your gut flora, the flora in your mouth improves accordingly.

Other Dental Care Considerations....

Another Danger: A Mouthful of Mercury...   Mercury is a toxic heavy metal that can poison your brain, central nervous system and kidneys. Children and fetuses, whose brains are still developing, are most at risk. Mercury is such a potent toxin that just one drop in a lake would poison the lake to the extent that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) would ban fishing in it. Yet, they claim that carrying around a mouthful of mercury fillings has no harmful effects. If you have mercury amalgams, it would be advisable to consult a holistic dentist and have them removed.

Steer Clear of Fluoride in Any Form....   If you are using fluoridated toothpaste, you may want to consider replacing it it with a safe one. Fluoride is of little or no benefit to your teeth and poses serious health risks, including immune dysfunction, endocrine disruption, increased risk of fractures, arthritis, infertility, and many more. But toothpaste isn t the only source of fluoride - it is present in many non-organic foods from pesticide residue (example iceberg lettuce). Also fluoride continues to be added to many municipal water supplies.

Your Diet Is Key to Reducing Chronic Inflammation.....   The running thread linking a wide variety of common health problems, including cancer, is chronic inflammation in your body - regardless of whether it originates in your mouth or not. Clearly, addressing your oral health is an important step, but it really all starts with your diet. Eat organically grown produce, pasture-raised meats and cut out the “junk” food for better health.
