You’ve probably heard about the mind-body connection but have you considered the mind-mouth connection? A clean, naturally healthy mouth without chemical swishes, excessive x-rays, and mercurial cavities helps us release emotional and physical toxins. It makes perfect sense when you think about the fact that food goes into your stomach via your mouth… yet holistic dentistry is an issue that is often silenced by the media.
In our second installment of Well Examined, Christine sits down with holistic dentist, Dr. Marvin. Even though conventional practices such as root canals are known to have detrimental health effects, the message is far from reaching the public. Dr. Marvin walks us through some of the common misconceptions about dentistry and lets us know what questions to ask our own dentists. Listen in for our 411 on advocating for your own healthy teeth and gums.
