HEALTHY TOOTHPASTE- whiten your teeth WITHOUT toxins

COMMON TOOTHPASTES ARE TOXIC

I want to share with you my healthy toothpaste recipe I have been using for 10 years on myself and also on my children’s teeth.  It will clean your teeth in a superior manner, whiten your teeth without chemicals, and brighten your smile! It only has four, easily found ingredients.

I originally designed this toothpaste to avoid using the toxin laden common toothpastes. Most, if not all common toothpastes contain many toxic ingredients. Your mouth is made of highly absorbable tissues. So what you brush your teeth with is readily absorbed into your blood stream and affects all your body systems and your health. I will discuss a couple of toxins commonly found in toothpaste and then share my healthy toothpaste recipe with you. Lastly, I will comment on the benefits of using this fantastic, healthy toothpaste.

COMMON CHEMICALS IN TOOTHPASTES

Triclosan, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Aspartame and fluoride are all harmful chemicals found in common toothpastes today. There are many other chemicals found in toothpastes also. Triclosan is an antibacterial that has been linked with endocrine disruption, antibiotic resistance and cancer. SLS is a surfactant. Surfactants cause the foaming to occur and is linked to canker sores and skin irritation. When SLS is manufactured, it can be contaminated with a carcinogenic by-product. SLS is an insecticide and can have toxic effects to marine life also. Aspartame is used to sweeten toothpaste. It is converted to formaldelhyde in your brain and other sensitive areas in your body. It can cause great tissue damage and is linked to headaches, weakness, vertigo, memory problems, numbness, neuritis etc. The last chemical I wish to mention is fluoride. It is a major risk factor for horrible dental fluorosis (ironic isn’t it?)- especially in children as they tend to swallow alot of the toothpaste.

AVOID TOOTHPASTE TOXINS BY MAKING YOUR OWN!

Nutritional Balancing is all about reducing our toxin exposure, and gently eliminating the toxins within our bodies. Why not avoid all these unwanted chemicals in common toothpaste which are doing your health harm? Perhaps you could try the following homemade healthy toothpaste that is so good to use. Your mouth feels cleaner than it does after using common toothpastes. Your breath is fresh. And it tastes good. Here’s my recipe:

Sari’s Healthy Toothpaste:

Ingredients:

12 tbsp sodium bicarbonate (bicarb soda)

2/3 tsp of salt

8 tsp glycerin

10 drops peppermint essential oil

Place the bicarb and salt into a small glass jar and mix. Add the glycerin and peppermint oil and mix well, being careful to get all the bicarb/salt from the corners at the bottom of the jar. Put the lid on.

If you are the only one using your new healthy toothpaste, dip your tooth brush into the jar and pick up a small amount of the paste. Lightly wet your tooth brush and brush away! If multiple people are using the tooth paste, get some paste onto a teaspoon and then dip your brush into that.

Do not use this toothpaste for your baby’s teeth as it is too abrasive. Once children are 3 or 4 they are old enough to use it. If you brush your teeth too vigorously you could harm your tooth enamel. It is important to brush your teeth using the correct technique. Wriggle your toothbrush from side to side in a small space (vibration like), rather than using big sweeping motions across the whole length of your row of teeth. Make sure you concentrate on the area where the gum meets the teeth as this is where the bad bacteria enjoy being.

Benefits homemade healthy toothpaste:

Sodium bicarbonate

Bicarb soda is a natural antibacterial and has a pH of 8.3. This alkaline pH helps our mouths have a more alkaline environment which helps the good bacteria thrive. A more alkaline mouth environment means a less acidic environment. And acidic mouths cause dental decay. Bad bacteria flourish in acidic environments of ph5.5 or less. It is highly effective at killing Streptococcus mutans which is a significant contributor to tooth decay.

Bicarb soda is a gentle abrasive which removes stains from your teeth and whitens them without using toxic chemicals. Salt is also has a gentle abrasiveness.

Glycerin

Glycerin is a water-soluble, non toxic, viscous and hygroscopic fluid. This lovely viscous quality ensures your toothpaste has a toothpaste-like consistency! Your mixture will not freeze or become too watery over time with glycerin. It is the perfect carrier for your tooth paste.

Peppermint essential oil

Peppermint essential oil combats bad breath and is a potent antiseptic. It also is adds a wonderful flavour! Existing patients can order peppermint oil under Patient Login.

YOUR KIDS HEALTH: THREE IMPORTANT CHANGES TO MAKE

 

CHILDREN DESERVE THE BEST

You love your children more than anything and want what’s best for them. Today I want to share with you three things you can do differently for your children in 2018. These three things will significantly improve your kids health NOW and in the years to come. These will help every cell in their bodies function much more optimally and help them grow and develop in a much more efficient and superior way than before. Children are so special and they deserve the correct nutrients so their bodies can grow as designed to. Looking after your kids health will enable them to reach their genetic potential.

3 CHANGES TO MAKE FOR YOUR KIDS HEALTH

  1. Remove empty carbohydrate snacks from their diet and replace with nutrient-dense snacks.

Remove biscuits, potato chips, lollies, white bread, fast food burgers, chips etc from your children’s diets. These are full of sugar, chemicals and grains that have had all their good nutrients taken out of them. They are hard on digestion, often causing all sorts of issues from constipation to eczema. They are among the worst things you can do for your kids health.  You can still pack the following suggestions into lunch boxes, all your school mums out there! By removing empty carbohydrate foods, you are also opening up more space to give your child lots of great, much needed nutrients!

Replace with quality protein to help with every area of their growth, such as

  • Chicken drumstick
  • Boiled egg
  • Lamb chop
  • Bowl of yoghurt

OR Replace with quality whole carbohydrates to give them much needed minerals such as selenium:

  • Blue corn chips
  • Other veggies chips (you can easily make these yourself also)

AND/ OR Replace with a bowl of veggies for loads of minerals, vitamins and the best quality fibre.

  • Steamed frozen peas with butter or yoghurt
  • Steamed veggies such as a corn cob, or carrot sticks etc with butter or yoghurt.

2. Change their sugary carbohydrate breakfast cereal to high quality, real, highly nutritious foods to keep them full for longer.

Some suggestions:

  • Boiled or poached eggs with vegetables
  • Bowl of frozen steamed peas with runny eggs on top
  • Sardines mixed through mashed sweet potato
  • Silverbeat quiche (this can be made in advance and eaten cold- yummo!)
  • Scrambled eggs with veggies

3. Eliminate all drinks except good quality spring water or carbon-filtered tap water.

Most drinks are full of refined sugar, rotting kids health- their teeth and their insides. Even fruit juices are full of natural fructose which rots the teeth also. Kids (and adults) need much more water than they are getting. Think of each cell in their bodies as either grapes or sultanas. You want body cells to be big, plump, hydrated grape-cells, not shrivelled up, dehydrated sultana– cells. The latter does not allow nutrients to get into the cells so they can work properly. The sultana cells also do not allow the waste that the cell generates to get out of the cell and out of the body! GO FOR GRAPE CELLS! Get them to drink plenty of good quality water, between meals.

  • Buy convenient sized spring water from your local supermarket and pop a straw in for the little tackers to drink throughout the day.
  • Buy a carbon-filter to filter your own tap water.

POSITIVELY IMPACT YOUR CHILD’S HEALTH

These three changes will honestly make such as big impact on your kid’s health. Put one into practice each week over the next 3 weeks and you would have formed some great new habits with your kids, just in time for the beginning of the school year! Watch your kids grow and blossom and excel at school next year. Your kids will thank you for it in years to come.

NUTRITIONAL BALANCING FOR CHILDREN

If you are serious about getting your kids happy, healthy and thriving, then a Nutritional Balancing program is perfect! It will balance your child’s body chemistry so that every cell is working optimally. Minerals are the building blocks of our bodies. If there is too much of something and not enough of another, things start to go wrong and not work properly. Even if your child is not a sick child, they may suffer from behaviour issues, skin problems, digestive discomfort etc. Balancing their body will ensure these seemingly small issues are resolved. Check out the Nutritional Balancing information and get serious about your family’s health.
