Why Is Oral Health Important?

Digestion starts in the mouth. What ever is in your mouth goes to your stomach and guts.

So, if there is an abundance of bad bacteria in your mouth it will eventually make its way to your stomach and intestines.

What happens when too much bad bacteria is in your mouth and intestines?

Well, health issues start popping up.

What are some of the signs/conditions of imbalance of the oral microbiome bacteria?

  • Bad Breath
  • Sensitive Teeth
  • Film on Teeth in the morning
  • Gums Receding
  • Bleeding Gums
  • Ulcers of the Mouth
  • White Coated Tongue
  • Cavities/Tooth decay
  • Root Canal Infections
  • Respiratory Infections
  • Diabetes
  • Certain Cancers
  • Alzheimer’s Disease

1000’s of studies have linked oral diseases to other health issues:

  • Diabetes
  • Leukemia
  • Fungal/bacteria infections

Good bacteria helps:

  • Breaks down Food
  • Remineralizers our teeth
  • Carries oxygen to our gums/soft tissue
  • Fights Infections
  • Helps prevent Oxidative stress
  • and Inflammation

Factors that kill or cause an imbalance of our healthy bacteria:

  • Mouth Wash/Anti-Bacterial or alcohol
  • 180,000,000 Americans use Mouth Wash
  • 5/6 Americans use antibiotics- they kill all of the bacteria
  • Kills our oral microbiome/healthy bacteria on the tongue crypt

What can we do to improve our Oral Health?

  • Avoid things that may eliminate beneficial bacteria
  • Example: Toothpaste with Triclosan, Sodium laved, Sulfate Sodium,
  • Artificial Sweeteners-Saccharin, Aspartame, Erythritol
  • Avoid products that use micro beads-toothpaste products

What can we do, stop brushing our teeth and using mouth wash? Please do not.

However, there is a Good News! There is a good for you Oral Care. It actually helps your mouth health. Remember that we said at the beginning of this that your digestion starts in your mouth. So, if your mouth is healthy, good bacteria will be passing down to your stomach and intestines.

Please check in next time for more information on the products.

Just A Little More Introduction

Let’s Continue my Introduction

Let me begin where I left off. As I said before, when one has lived as long as I have, there are many tales to be told. I am only skimming off the top for this intro.

I will move on the health and wellness. I became a Health Educator because of the health issues I have dealt with for a major part of my life.  For years I did not even realize I had health issues. All of my life I dealt with one issue or another. Such as, low energy, heat making me feel bad, lack of quality sleep, depression, and so many more symptoms.  

I was very young when the doctor discovered I had nodules in my thyroid gland. It quickly resulted in removal of my thyroid. The doctors thought it was cancer, it turned out to be benign. Just 4 months later I had a hysterectomy due to endometriosis.

These two issues caused a lifetime of maladies. Low energy caused from the lack of a natural thyroid. The hysterectomy caused its own set of issues. Not being able to take estrogen because the endometriosis flared up when I did. Hot flashes at 26 years of age and all the other symptoms that go along with the lack of natural hormones.

As you can see, I am no stranger to health issue. Nor are most of the readers of this blog. Everyone deals with their own set of health issues. As Tommy says, “The worse pain one has is the last pain they have.” Whatever we are dealing with at the time is the worst.

I never heard of autoimmune diseases until I was diagnosed with one. Then it became clear that I had been dealing with one or another autoimmune disease all my life. First one, thyroid nodules, second one endometriosis.  Next, a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, even though the test were not conclusive. Turned out to be aspartame poisoning.

For several years I went to my doctor with aching and swollen joints in my hands and feet.  They were swollen so badly that I could hardly use them, my doctor sent me to a Rheumatologist.

He asked several questions. Is your mouth dry? Yes, but I drink a lot of water. Are your eyes dry? Yes, but I have allergies. He did a couple of tests and diagnosed me with Sjogren’s Syndrome and Rheumatoid Arthritis. He said even though my blood work did not test positive for it, that was what I have.  

I never really got were I felt good. I always struggled to keep going. This wears one down. Depression sets in and zero energy is normal. I was so sick and tired of being sick and tired. I went to a naturopathic doctor. After he listened to my long list of symptoms, he asks me if I had thought about going gluten free. I said I eat whole grain breads. He said you are giving yourself a good shot of gluten when you do that.

At his suggestion I went cold turkey gluten free. I cut everything out of my diet that had even the mention of gluten. I spent hours in the grocery store reading labels. I quickly lost 20 pounds and began to feel so much better. Guess what? When one cuts gluten out, they eliminate most sugars too. My depression went away.

For years I have not been able to take antibiotics. Everyone prescribed to me has caused a reaction. The last one I took resulted in three trips to ER and a 3 day stay in the hospital with hives.

My quest for many years has been to find natural products that will help or alleviate my health issues. I have not taken an antibiotic in 14 years. Have I been ill during that time? Yes, I have. I even had Covid 19 in July of 2020.

Each time I have an illness, I do a lot of research to find natural ways to alleviate it.  I have been successful in surviving Covid-19, bronchitis, sore throat, sinus infections, H-Pylori, gallbladder function, and even staph infection of the skin 3 times.

I am a huge believer in natural products as healers of most maladies.  This has led me to one of the best lines of natural products I have ever seen. I will write more about them the next time.

Thank you for coming and blessings for great health.

Why Is It That Some People Just Do Not want To Be Well?

Have you ever thought about that? Why is that? I just do not understand why anyone would not want to feel their very best. Can you?

  • Maybe they just do not know how to get well.
  • Maybe they get too much attention for feeling bad.
  • Maybe they learned it from someone else.
  • The list can go on and on.

What ever the reason it is often hard to change a persons mind. I for one decided a long time ago that I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I started looking for natural ways to heal my body as prescription meds do not react well with my body.

I know there are reasons beyond our control that cause us pain and anguish. But I know from experience that I have caused myself a lot of pain and anguish at times by the things I put into my body. An example is diet coke. I was a diet coke addict. I drank them all day and into to the night. I was severally abusing my body and did not even realize it. That is until I was so sick that the doctor diagnosed me with Multiple Scelorious.

Talk about some scary symptoms and diagnoses. From everything I read about MS, it was evident that I had the very quick progressive kind. I started praying and searching. I thought, what if it is the diet coke? So I went cold turkey and quit drinking diet coke. Guess what? My symptoms started getting better, slowly. Very slowly I started to feel a little better. I never went back to drinking diet coke and if I ever chewed gum with artificial sweetener, I started having symptoms.

My point in saying all of this is that sometimes we are not even aware of what we are doing to our body by what we put into it. This can work both ways-good and bad. I have dealt with one or another autoimmune disease all of my life. As I said, my body does not tolerate traditional medicines, So, I have been forced to seek natural ways to heal and protect my body. Because of this I have come across some wonderful natural products that are helping to heal my body.

I am looking for other people to help who are sick and tired of being sick and tired. I am on a mission to help as many people as I can because I know to well what it is like to live in pain, lack of quality sleep, and deal with gut issues that cause all kinds of issues. I know a lot of people who deal with some or all of these issues. Sometimes we are too stubborn to do anything about it. But the solution is easy and quick. Let’s get healthy together.

Let me know if you need any help. I am here and willing to help.

Blessings and prayers,

Shelia
