Here at Paleohacks we tend to talk a lot about weight loss, muscle gain, and disease control, but one thing people forget is oral health – its importance, and how it reflects what’s really going on in your body.
In fact, I just learned that 98% of people in the US have some form of oral disease – either tooth decay or gum disease. To make matters worse, most people don’t even know they have it.
Today Clark chats with Will of OraWellness, a Hawaiian-based company that creates organic products for gum problems and periodontal issues. I was thrilled to get Will on the show, as good “paleo” dental health information is hard to find. I’ve personally been dealing with receding gums – to which my dentist just says – “Yeah, you’ll just have to get the surgery.” – so this is a topic that hits close to home.
Tune in today as Will tells us:
- • What’s wrong with the way you’re currently brushing your teeth.
- • The scary connection between the health of your mouth and cancer.
- • Why an oral health issue can have frightening impact on your immune system.
- • The surprising connection between oral health and stomach health.
Most people aren’t aware of the connection between your body and oral health, but I can’t stress the impact they have on each other. By just taking better care of your teeth, your entire body will reap the benefits… seriously. Will shares some insane studies that will blow your mind.
