an introduction to natural toothcare

hey everyone! hope all is well in your life at the moment ♥
today i want to share a little more info about natural toothcare with you all - it's something that i'd been putting off for ages. saying to myself 'well, everyone uses Colgate, so it must be fine', but i'm fairly certain that that's probably not the case, and if you start to understand more about what's in it and how much you digest each time you brush.

did you know that one less than 1 tube of toothpaste can actually poison a child so much that they die? yep, there's even a warning on the packet. so, what do you think that's actually doing to you?

there are so many unexplained illnesses in the world - so many diseases and auto-immune attacks that science can't fathom yet. one day we will, and we'll all be really shocked by our past behaviour. i picture myself sat down to dinner when i'm 70, chatting with my grandkids about how much food we gorged on, how we were able to fly whenever we wanted for minimal costs and how we saw it as our right to drive, own a microwave and surf the internet for hours on end.

i figure it makes sense to live with that future notion in mind, and a very simple way is to start by ridding your bathroom cabinet of poison. after all, doing something because everyone else does it never got anyone anywhere did it?

if you want to know more about switching to natural toothcare, and some more good reasons to do it, check out:
  •  this article about the amount of "Colgate for Kids" toothpaste it takes to kill a child
  • learn that fluoride is the main component of rat poison!
  • read the wisdom of arguably the greatest dentist of all time, Weston A Price and his discoveries on the role of nutrition in tooth decay, and how through his research he came upon a solution to avoiding 95% of all dental caries (cavities)
  • find out why the government started adding fluoride to our tap water and how fluoridation has changed our health - thanks to the anti-fluoride campaign for taking a stance against this.
  • learn the importance of preparing your wholegrains, to enhance nutrition and digestion, and keep your teeth sparklingly clean
it's so important to realise that so many things have been so well advertised and subsidised by big companies earning mega-bucks, that we've lost sight of what's really right and good for you!

large toothpaste companies earn shed loads of money, and their advertising preys on the human need to look beautiful and have white teeth. whereas if we ate a natural wholefoods diet without any of the other stuff that gets well advertised (like crisps, chocolate, cereal, margarine, icecream and pizza) our teeth would do alright anyway - as Dr Price shows us in his research.
all i'm saying is, think about it.
figure out if it's worth the slightly additional cost of buying a fluoride-free natural toothpaste...
do you use a natural toothpaste? what do you think of fluoride?
