Learn How To Take Care Of Your Oral Health, A Fundamental Support Of Many Aspects Of Your Health As Well As To Help Prevent Heart Disease, Diabetes And Alzheimer’s.

It’s probably very difficult to achieve high-level physical health if your dental and oral health are not effectively addressed oral hygienebecause oral health can impact you total body health.  What happens in the mouth is a major factor in one’s health or illness. Many illnesses can be linked to problems in the mouth and everyone can improve their health by improving the health of the oral cavity. So it becomes vitally important to learn how to take care of your oral health which will support your general health and help prevent even major diseases like heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

Besides avoiding fluoridated water, toothpastes with sodium fluoride, and mercury tooth filling, which have already been discussed in this blog, oral hygiene has to be your first concern for staying in good general health.

Oral Hygiene, a often neglected, underestimated but fundamental health tool because it will improve, and even save, your life, is discussed here.Bad oral hygiene produces chronic low-grade inflammation in your body and it has, very deleterious effects on just about every major organ system –from Alzheimer’s to stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. In fact, there’s a 700 percent higher incidence of type 2 diabetes among people with gum disease, because of the inflammatory effects of unbalanced microflora in a diabetic mouth.

And the microflora in your mouth do causes inflammation. When the bacteria enter into your circulatory system, it causes your liver to release C-reactive proteins, which has inflammatory effects in the entire circulatory system. There are some estimates that up to 80 percent of systemic disease have manifestations in the mouth.

In order to achieve oral health you must promoting balance among the bacteria in your mouth (oral microbiome). And be careful with popular mouthwashes that are sold to “kill bad bacteria”, actually they do far more harm than good because they disturb the natural balance of your mouth bacteria.

The oral microbiome which is connected to another important microbiome, the gut microbiome,  has a component that protects you from deadly viruses and bacteria in the environment. and its first job is to start the digest of the food you intake.

Unfortunately you cannot take probiotics for the mouth as you can do for your guts, so what you have to do is just to stop killing  the microbes you have in your mouth and try to keep them in balance. Do not disturb, denature, or dehydrate them with alcohol-based products otherwise will become pathogens.

So the solution to a naturally healthy mouth is in.

  • healthy eating with no sugars, no grains, plenty of vegetables fresh and fermented vegetables (fermented vegetables will dramatically reduce plaque buildup), with a good nutritional program for systemic health, taking plenty of alkalizing, antioxidant-rich, and anti-inflammatory foods
  • properly caring for you gut microbiome with intake of probiotics,
  • eliminating detergent-based products such as toothpaste and antibacterial and alcohol-based mouthwashes.
  • using an oral rinse that specifically nourishes your oral microbiome,
  • and mild natural cleaning

Clean Teeth, Gums: Keys to Good HealthHealthy eating

Good oral hygiene starts with healthy eating because eating poor quality food (foods with refined sugar, salt, and  flour) leads to a devitalized body and a poorly functioning immune system. This can manifest as gum disease as well as tooth disease.

Dr. Westin Price a searcher who traveled throughout the world examining the dental health of children living in non-industrialized countries. made an interesting study discovery:

He found that those who ate healthy, nutritious diets had perfect teeth, even without using a toothbrush or mouthwash.

But, for us people living in Dental cleaningindustrialised countries it may be difficult to rely solely on healthy diets. Our food is grown on  poor devitalised grounds therefore it is less than sufficiently rich with nutrients,  besides we gobble large quantities of junk food.

Therefore  it is always recommended daily using a mild natural toothpaste (without fluoride), dental floss as well as a natural mouthwash (avoid mouthwashes with alcohol or fluoride). 

Oil pulling with coconut oil makes for the best mouthwash you can find. Coconut oil helps to eliminate unhealthy biofilm from your teeth, has a natural detergent effect, is a powerful destroyer of all kinds of microbes, contains a number of valuable nutrients that help promote oral health and doesn’t do the damage that chemical detergents do.

Another oral care rinse that can be homemade is Himalayan salt dissolved in water. This salt contains more than 85 different microminerals.

What is Oil Pulling

Oil pulling is  an Ayurvedic Indian tradition that’s been around for thousands of years. To perform it, you simply swish the oil in your mouth, “pulling” it between your teeth for about 15-20 minutes. You can use also a number of other oils, like sesame, sunflower, and coconut oil. Oil pulling one of the easiest ways to support your oral health naturally.

Another oral care rinse that can be homemade is Himalayan salt dissolved in water. This salt contains more than 85 different microminerals.

What Is Gum Disease (periodontitis)

 Periodontitis refers to a number of in ammatory diseases affecting the periodontium, the tissues that surround and support the teeth. Periodontitis can result in loss of bone around the tooth and in the loosening and possible loss of teeth.

Periodontitis can result in loss of bone around the tooth and in the loosening and loss of teeth.

What Causes Gum Disease (periodontitis)

CookiesThere are a number of causes of gum disease: smoking or chewing tobacco, chewing sugar-filled gum, maintaining a diet high in sugar(Bacteria, like many diseases, depend on sugar for growth — the more sugar, the more bacteria), stress, systemic diseases such as diabetes, improperly  fitting bridges, crooked teeth, defective  fillings,  many types of medications if taken continuously for long periods, lack of vitamin C, lack of Coenzyme Q-10, and, mainly bad oral hygiene

Infection is the most common cause. of gum disease.

An excessive bacterial overgrowth in the periodontal tissue causes the body’s immune system to respond to fight these bacteria creating an inflammation in the mouth that becomes chronic if nothing is done to cure it.

Remember that any disease that develops in any part or organ of your body is born by an inflammation in that organ, the inflammation being the body’s reaction to the intrusion of a foreign element.

And one source of inflammation of the gums, that most people ignore, is caused by the Bacteriabacteria found in the mouth.

Theses bacteria, called nanobacteria, are found in the plaque clinging to teeth.  It is an interesting species of bacteria that has been isolated from both the mouth and atherosclerotic plaque of the arteries..

Nanobacteria are tiny germs smaller than viruses and are capable of  secreting a layer of calcium in which they wrap themselves for protection the which makes it very difficult for antibacterial drugs or the body’s immune system to kill them..

Once oral disease (inflammation due to excess bacterial overgrowth)  -called periodontitis, has developed,  first it will cause bleeding of the gums while brushing, redness and swelling of the gums, bad breath, recession of the gum lining and loss of teeth.

You can see if periodontitis afflicts you by visually inspecting your gum tissue and seeing the signs of inflammation that are present, such as redness and swelling

Periodontitis Can Literally Kill You

Gum diseaseBut losing your teeth, as a consequence if bad oral hygiene is not such a big deal after all, right?  Well, may be. But a part the fact that you will have to pay a lot of money to your dentist to have him fix the aesthetic  aspect of your smile, there is just another not so negligible consequence linked to  periodontitis: IT CAN KILL YOU.

Advanced periodontal disease  can raise your risk of a fatal heart attack up to 10 times. If you get a heart attack related to periodontal or gum disease, nine times out of 10, it will actually kill you.


Well, bacteria from gum disease does not just sticks forever to your gums making all your teeth become longer, shaky and fall one by one; bacteria has the  unpleasant tendency to travel through the bloodstream and then lodge in another organ of your body, creating a focus of infection -an abscess, there where it  decides to set.

So these bacteria will visit and damage your heart,  and your heart valves, creating a serious condition known as bacterial endocarditis, which can kill you.

Endocarditis will damage your prostate causing inflammation there (prostatitis) and even rheumathoid arthritis.

Gum disease also has been linked to low birth weight babies, diabetes, and chronic lung disease.

Healthy mouthClean Teeth, Gums: Keys to Good Health. Oral Hygiene Tools

In practising oral hygienes, it is not enough to brush and floss, it is important also  to sterilize as well as you can your toothbrush before each use.  Boil the brush in  hot water for two minutes and this will kill most of the germs. Protect your toothbrush covering it between uses.

Unfortunately the classic tooth brush and dental floss are not enough to ensure a proper cleaning and maintenance of oral health. You still can get periodontal disease even if you brush, floss and visit your dentist regularly.

There are big problems with the tooth brushes and flosses:

– you never use it with the correct rotary motion and inclination necessary to clean the teeth without damaging the gums which after years of misuse are looking as if you had developed gum disease.

– And using tooth brushes is also dangerous for another reason: their cleaners are never kept up properly so they will carry germs and  generate dangerous bacterial infections. Even electric-type teeth cleaning device present the same problems.

– The hand-held dental floss has its problems too: is always misused, is unpleasant to feel and can even hurt your gums.
