Natural Dental Care Tips

9 Tips to Keep Dentist Away

Conventional dentistry still use metals and dangerous tooth whitening technics.

Mercury and other metals are unfortunately still used in conventional dentistry even though they have well proven cancer-causing effects. Mercury is an extremely dangerous neurotoxin that damages your brain and causes permanent neurological damage.

Tooth whitening is hugely popular, however hydrogen-peroxide that is normally used for this procedure can cause your teeth to become sensitive, and can damage your gums and nerves.

Stay Away From Fluoride.

The toothpaste in most of the cases contains fluoride. Fluoride is a highly toxic agent that can cause significant health problems and is not an answer to preventing cavities contrary to what the marketing wants us to believe.

Diet is a Major Factor in Dental Health.

It may be obvious for some, however it is easily neglected that diet is a major factor in dental health.

Luka ZubiciGood oral care starts with a healthy diet of unprocessed and low-sugar foods, unpasteurized dairy and preferably raw and organic foods.  Sweet, sugary drinks, soda and carbonated drinks are severely damaging to our teeth and cause dental erosion.

Dental erosion is a process of incremental decalcification, which, over time, dissolves your teeth. Vinegar and citric juices are also shown to promote the dental erosion. Carbonation changes the pH in your mouth, weakens and slowly dissolves the enamel in your teeth. Even brushing your teeth too hard and for longer than is necessary may cause damage to enamel and gums.

Good News Called “Xylitol”

Xylitol (low glycemic, sugar like sweetener) is shown to prevent caries. Xylitol inhibits and eventually destroys “caries bacteria”. Not all xylitol products are equal, so you will need to buy a high-quality xylitol  obtained from a birch tree from Finland and pay close attention that it doesn’t contain GMO ingredients. The brands like Xylobrit  or Zylosweet (EU) and Smart Sweet (US) are good-quality choices.

9 Tips to Keep Dentist Away

  1. Floss your teeth regularly, ideally after every meal. The floss should be the non-wax, non-fluoride.
  2. Use a dry brush at a 45 degree angle. After trying far too many brushes, I have found Curaprox and have been using for few years already Curaprox Ultra Soft CS 5460.  According to the research the ideal brushing time is two minutes and the ideal pressure 150 grams (the weight of an orange).  Keep your toothbrush clean by soaking it in a cup with hydrogen-peroxide once a week.
  3. Use a fluoride-free toothpaste. Best to make it on your own, it is really easy. Take a few drops of natural antimicrobial (such as essential oil of rosemary or tea tree), xylitol and baking soda. Or mix some coconut oil, baking soda and few drops of essential peppermint oil.
  4. Use Xylitol for mouth rinsing and tooth brushing. Take half a teaspoon of xylitol powder and rinse your mouth with the xylitol for 3 -5 minutes, then spit. Alternatively, use the xylitol as your toothpaste and brush your teeth. Do not rinse your mouth to preserve xylitol’s positive effect.
  5. Avoid processed foods, sugar, refined flour and all artificial flavorings, colorings, and artificial sweeteners.
  6. Filtered, pure, non-carbonated water is clearly your absolute best beverage option regardless of your age – both for hydration, and dental health.  Stick to plain, non-carbonated water.
  7. For healthy gums free of plaque use a mixture of six parts of baking soda to one part of unrefined sea salt (blend for 30 seconds then place in a container). Wet the tip of your index finger and use a small amount of the mixture on the gums and massage it for 15min. Spit out and rinse your mouth.
  8. Whiten your teeth naturally by mixing a strawberry with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Keep the mixture on our teeth few minutes; brush it adding a bit of toothpaste and rinse. Use this method only once a week to avoid eventual damage to enamel.
  9. Make your own mouth-wash by mixing 1 cup water, 1 teaspoon baking soda, and 3 drops of peppermint essential oils.

Water – The Beginning and the End

Bottled Water Dangers And How To Go About It

An increasing number of studies report the presence of EDCs (endocrine disrupting chemicals) in bottled water.  A recent research Identification of Putative Steroid Receptor Antagonists in Bottled Water indicates there are more than 24000 of such chemicals in any given bottle of water – some of them causing serious hormone-disrupting effects.

The German researchers tested 18 different bottled water products out of which 13 had “significant” anti-estrogenic activity, and 16 out of 18 inhibited the body’s androgen receptors by 90%.

Bottled water has been found to contain estrogenic, antiestrogenic, as well as androgenic, progestagenic, and glucocorticoid-like chemicals.

Hormone disruption has the potential to cause serious effects on human life, from early maturation in children, to increased risk of cancer.

Bottled water that has been left in a car is especially dangerous. The heated chemicals in the plastic release dioxin into the water. Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue.

Another consideration to have in mind is that just because a plastic container says it is “BPA Free” doesn’t mean it is free of harmful chemicals!

Fluoride IS Poison

More and more people are waking up to the health risks of fluoride in their water. Fluoride, added sometimes in water supplies, is a neurotoxin that has been linked to cancer and many other health issues.

The Lancet, one of the oldest and most prestigious medical journals,  published a report that has officially classified fluoride  as a neurotoxin, in the same category as arsenic, lead and mercury.

Many European countries have rejected water fluoridation in general, however a number of countries are still using this practice – check here the flouridation by country report.

If you live in one of these countries where fluoride is not added to the water supplies, instead of buying the bottled water, it may be a good start to have a water filter like Brita Maxtra that reduces chlorine, lead and other heavy metals.

This by itself is a huge saving comparing to bottled water as Britta Maxtra Water Filter Jug Annual Pack will cost you only about £35.

According to the newest research (August 2014) done by NaturalNews, Britta in fact did not perform well when it comes to heavy metals removal (Aluminum,  Copper,  Arsenic, Strontium,  Cadmium,  Cesium,  Mercury,  Lead and Uranium). Please note that the research did NOT measure fluoride, pesticides and chlorine  removal.

Based on this research only two water filters performed well enough: ZeroWater and Waterman.

Water/Fluids Intake – How Much Do We Really Need?

How much do we need stays a highly controversial topic, as hydration needs are individual and vary.  “8 glasses rule” that you no doubt have heard of is more and more questioned these days.

Using your thirst and the color of your urine (it should be light yellow) to understand your needs is one way to go about it.  This doesn’t work for me as I constantly need to remind myself to drink water. My 5 year old as well rarely is asking for water. So I take a big, half/liter mug and prepare my morning and evening tea. Along with the rest of the fluids that I normally drink during the day, this way I know I have likely taken enough.

Quick Checklist

  • Avoid bottled water.  24 000 chemicals seem like a pretty good reason to do so, plus it will save you money.
  • Glass bottled water is normally safe but pricey. Other alternatives include water filter systems like ZeroWater  Waterman or Brita Maxtra.  Otherwise, a little pricier alternative could be a reverse osmosis system.
  • Your complete fluids intake needs to be limited to
    • Filtered, pure water
    • Tea (no caffeine, green tea is the only exception)
    • Freshly pressed juices from vegetables and fruits
  • Use your thirst and the color of your urine (it should be light yellow) to judge your personal needs.
