There’s a very real sense in which good health starts in your mouth.
In fact, the American Dental Hygiene Association shows that there are many diseases that can be connected to poor oral health including heart disease, diabetes, premature birth, and lung disease.
At the same time, our teeth were designed to last us for life. If they weren’t, we wouldn’t be here. So why do we now have to rely on dentists and modern dental techniques from an early age to keep our choppers in working shape?
To answer this question and to get some insight into how we can maintain our teeth (with far less reliance on modern dentistry), James Phelps from the CHEK Institute interviewed me the other day.
The resulting interview is one I think you’ll find really fascinating!
In the interview I share:
An overview of the structure of the human tooth
I explain our mouth’s natural cleansing process
Explain how the modern diet interferes with that process
I offer 5 easy techniques to really boost your dental health
You’ll especially want to watch for my 4th tip. Hint: it involves building a volcano in your mouth!
And if you try the volcano tip, let me know how it goes!
