What Are Your Teeth Trying to Tell You?

Recently, there has been a lot of buzz regarding diet, dental health, and unconventional "holistic" dentistry. Some claim that diet may be the cause for tooth decay, and switching to a more primal, pre-agriculture diet may be the cure. Most traditional dentists do not share this claim. A whole field exists within holistic medicine called Biological Dentistry. Unlike conventional dentistry, this field also focuses on the effects teeth have on our general health, based on the tooth location in the mouth. There is a topographical map of the teeth, similar in principle to Reflexology. This suggests that if you have a chronic infection in the tooth, gum, or bone, it will also affect the corresponding organ. Biological Dentistry is somewhat controversial, and for good reason.

Important individual methods to improve your dental health include a good diet (stay away from sweets and soft drinks), and thorough brushing and flossing. You will be surprised how quickly gum and root inflammation can be reversed with such simple methods in conjunction with herbal washes and other natural strategies. If you’re struggling with dental health and degenerative diseases, chronic, low grade inflammation may be one cause. Reducing inflammation in your body and your gums can improve your overall health, as well as your dental health.

One published peer-reviewed study did demonstrate the ability of a Tibetan-based botanical formula called Padma to substantially reduce the need for root canals in patients that had pulpitis, or inflammation of the root. How can a simple herbal formula have such a profound effect? It is due to its well-researched capability to regulate inflammation, support circulation, and strengthen the immune system. If you’d like to learn more about this novel supplement, I invite you to download my report on Padma and its critical role in inflammation and heart disease. As always, this information is absolutely free and I invite you to share it with anyone you know who’s struggling with gum disease or poor dental health.
