WEEKLY TIP: Protect Your Teeth to Save Your Life

Thursday, 22 April 2010 03:24 PM

The single best thing you can do to protect your teeth and gums is to follow a healthy diet, and the two worst things are eating sugar and using tobacco. Sugar feeds the bacteria that can lead to both gum disease and tooth decay.

Chewing gum that contains sugar is especially bad because the sugar is constantly in contact with the teeth and gums. Tobacco, whether smoked or chewed, also damages the gums and leads to tooth loss.

Because of the growing and convincing link between gum disease (infections) and cancer, atherosclerosis, heart disease, and strokes, it is important to practice good oral health, which includes a good diet. For the latest information on how to protect your heart, see my report "New Heart Revelations."

One of the best ways to clear up gum disease is to use my special antibacterial elixir “brown and bubbly”:

• Mix one ounce of hydrogen peroxide with one ounce of betadine solution in a paper cup.

• Dip your toothbrush in the mixture and brush your teeth and gums thoroughly, making sure you brush all surfaces. Repeat this several times. You will notice bubbling where your teeth meet your gums. Let this bubble for about two minutes but do not swallow the mixture.

• Rinse your mouth with distilled or filtered water.

• Repeat daily until your gum condition clears, then treat your gums weekly.

The following nutrients will strengthen teeth and help prevent gum disease:

• Vitamin D3

• Calcium citrate

• CoQ10

• Curcumin

• Quercetin

• Ellagic acid

• Grape seed extract

• Pycnogenol

My special report "Key Vitamins that Save Your Heart, Prevent Cancer and Keep You Living Long" will give you more details on protecting your health with nutrients.

Finally, despite what you have been told, fluoride is dangerous to not only your dental health, but to your overall health:

• Fluoride actually destroys the enamel of teeth.

• Fluoridation of drinking water has no dental benefit, and is also a poison that accumulates in the body, damaging numerous organs and tissues.

• In addition, topical fluoride damages the gums and jaw bone and increases the risk of oral cancers. One of the best things you can do for your overall dental health is to avoid fluoride toothpastes, mouthwashes containing fluoride, and fluoride treatments — especially fluoride varnishes.

My special report "Why Fluoride is Toxic" will give you all the details.
