Here is what I have learned so far at the Holistic Oral Health Summit:
Sadly, I was with a partner for 10 years that never went to the dentist. In the last 2 years of being together, he started losing teeth. We were sitting at dinner one evening and one tooth just fell out! I wasn’t experiencing any problems yet, but decided to stop kissing him then and there until he visited a dentist. Which he refused to do. About 2 years later, I was experiencing the same devastating effects. I lost 2 teeth and 2 more were pulled due to infection. According to John Rothchild, DDS, in the Truth About Gum Disease, kissing shares a lot of bacteria and if a spouse or partner isn’t taking care of their oral health, you will contract their issues. And some bacteria is so nasty and can even be deadly.
Thankfully, I am on the road to recovery. I have been brushing with herbs such as Red Dock powder, which is an astringent for tightening gums and Chaparral, which an anti-microbacterial herb in maintaining PH balance. Also, I’ve been incorporating horsetail into my green smoothies, which is excellent for strengthening hair, teeth, nails and skin. While this information isn’t part of the Holistic Oral Health Summit, I encourage to check it out. It is called Alternatives To Dentists.
Back at the summit, Robin Openshaw talks about Natural Solutions for Toxic Dental Procedures. She mentions Oil Pulling to really clean out your mouth. She suggests doing this a couple of times a year for a few weeks each time. I have done this in the past and it tends to get cumbersome and boring, but I can do it like Robin suggests. After all, what have I got to lose. Hopefully, not more teeth!
