Could this root cause be hiding behind your health issues?

A good friend of mine, Kristy, suffered for years from severe muscle weakness. Because of this, she was unable to fully brush her teeth on a regular basis. When she was finally stronger, she visited a dentist, who told her that she had 14 cavities! 

But the dentist was so busy, Kristy could only see her every two months to get one or two cavities filled at a time. It wound up taking 9 visits over the course of a year to get all of Kristy’s dental work done!

Dental Problems Can Lead to Other Health Issues

Incidentally, Kristy had also been hospitalized with pneumonia 4 times in 3 years! This happened before she was able to improve her oral hygiene and get her cavities filled. She clearly had something going on inside her body. And she suspected that it was a kind of bacteria that made her susceptible to pneumonia. 

Over the years, researchers have linked dental issues with a variety of conditions, including depression, anxiety, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, hepatitis, esophageal cancer, colorectal cancer, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, and–-you guessed it–-pneumonia. 

Scientists have discovered over 700 different bacteria in the “oral microbiome,” or the group of microorganisms in the human mouth. You’ve got a random assortment of about 250 of them. So do I. Everybody’s microbiome is different.

Most of these bacteria in your mouth are healthy and beneficial, but about a dozen are not.

For example, researchers found one such bacteria, Porphyromonas gingivalis, or “Pg,” in the brains of deceased people who had Alzheimer’s disease! 

When mice were infected with Pg, they exhibited similar behavior to people with Alzheimer’s. And when the mice died, the same signs of Pg were in their brains, as well. 

“It’s easy for some people to see dental or oral problems as a completely separate thing from other illness or disease, but that’s not how the body works,” says Dr. Mark Burhenne, DDS.

Your Mouth is the Doorway to Your Immune System

Your mouth is the entrance to your digestive tract, where 70% of your immune system exists. 

Because of this, your immunity actually begins in your mouth. And the vast majority of your immune system is impacted by your oral bacteria, or oral microbiome.

But many approaches to oral health don’t address the importance of a healthy, balanced oral microbiome. Instead, often dentists tell their patients to “clean” their mouths.

That’s the rationale behind alcohol-based mouthwashes that kill “up to 99.9% of oral germs.”

But it’s a rationale that’s completely wrong. You need to have a balance of the “good germs” in your oral microbiome to stay healthy! 

The good bacteria in your mouth directly feed into your gut, becoming part of your immune system. But when you clean your mouth with harsh toothpaste and mouthwash, you’re killing off these good germs, which weakens your immune system. This can make your body more prone to illnesses, from the flu or the common cold to life-threatening conditions like Covid-19 or sepsis.

Solving Your Health Problems

The latest research is recognizing the importance of rebalancing the microbial community in your mouth to prevent dental diseases and thus, improve your overall health.

An award-winning doctor named Dr. Drew Sutton recently discovered a formula that actually rebalances the oral microbiome. In doing so, it rebuilds teeth and gums, gets rid of bad breath, and prevents cavities. Even just one of the ingredients inhibits the reproduction of the bad bacteria in your mouth by 86%! 

And because it focuses on the oral microbiome, the formula also helps balance your overall immunity and health. Dr. Sutton's formula has helped more than 150,000 people to improve their dental problems. And they have reported that it has also helped with their allergies, respiratory infections, sinus issues, digestive problems, bloating, IBS, headaches, migraines, and other health conditions! 

No matter your age or how long you have been experiencing problems with your teeth, you can finally see the end to your dental issues–-and other related problems!
