The Importance of Oral Health for Whole Body Wellness by Dale Audrey R.D.H.

Hello Everyone, Today, I want to talk to you about something that is often overlooked but plays a crucial role in our overall health and wellness: oral health.

Our mouths are the gateway to our bodies, and the health of our mouths can have a significant impact on our overall well-being. Poor oral health has been linked to a variety of health issues, including heart disease, diabetes, and even Alzheimer's disease. That's why it's so important to prioritize our oral health and take care of our teeth and gums.

One of the most important things we can do for our oral health is to practice good oral hygiene. This means brushing our teeth at least twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting the dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. By taking care of our teeth and gums, we can prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems that can impact our overall health.

In addition to practicing good oral hygiene, it's also important to pay attention to what we put in our mouths. A healthy diet plays a crucial role in our oral health, as well as our overall wellness. Foods high in sugar and acidity can contribute to tooth decay and gum disease, so it's important to limit our intake of these foods and opt for healthier options like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Exercise too, plays an important role, so don't forget and try to "break a sweat" every day!

I also believe in the power of natural remedies for oral health. Herbs and extracts like Neem, Myrhh, Clove and Pomegranate extract and Oil of Oregano have been shown to have antibacterial properties that can help fight off the harmful bacteria that can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. Oil pulling is another natural remedy that can help improve oral health by removing toxins and bacteria from the mouth.

By prioritizing our oral health, we can not only improve the health of our mouths but also our overall well-being. So let's make a commitment to take care of our teeth and gums, eat a healthy diet, and incorporate natural remedies into our oral care routine. Your body will thank you for it!

Until next time, be well and smile bright!
