Fewer Expensive Trips To The Dentist
Trips to the dentist are very expensive, for people without a benefit plan, a trip to the dentist can be impossible. Poor oral health is in itself painful and can be socially debilitating. It is also very important to understand that untreated dental issues can lead to very serious chronic illness in other parts of the body.
I have spent thousands of dollars on dental work, and I am not out of the ordinary. If I had known then what I know now about natural holistic dental health care, that money would have remained in my pocket.
The Botanical Based Products That Prevent Dental Problems Exist Now
Natural holistic oral care involves balanced nutrition and cleaning/rejuvenating the teeth, gums and tongue with nutritive plant botanicals. The natural oral care products that I use are from Living Libations. Aside from my twice daily oral care protocol, I also follow the eight affordable steps that I have outlined for you below.
With proper nutrition and some simple holistic self-dental care strategies, tooth decay, gum disease, gingivitis, plaque, tartar buildup and periodontal disease are completely preventable. Cavities can be a thing of the past.
The time to accept a new paradigm about oral health is now. We should no longer accept the occurrence of dental cavities in our lives as inevitable, or unavoidable. The next generation of children can be cavity-free.
We can reject the use of toothpastes, which contain ingredients like sodium lauryl sulphate, triclosan, flavourings, saccharin, artificial dyes and colour, methyl paraben, ethyl paraben, fluorides and harsh abrasives. These chemicals absorb quickly through the mucosal lining of our mouths and into our blood stream.
The new paradigm beckons us to use natural plant botanicals to nourish and heal our mouths, teeth and gums, and to understand that certain foods promote dental health and others, like sugars are a detriment to metabolic health and oral health.
