"Detox" is a commonly used word in today's society. However, how many people think about detoxing their oral care routine as an addition to their overall detox? Many people try a colon, liver or gallbladder detox or go on a gluten free, paleo, vegan, or raw vegan diet, but often times the products used for the most vascular area of their whole body are often overlooked. When you grab your regular tube of toothpaste, look at the back of the box. It says''Warning: Keep out of the reach of children under 6 years of age. If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.'' Needless to say, if it has a "contact poison control if swallowed" why would you put that into your body. The fluoride consumed through brushing, drinking, and even eating fluoridatedfoods stays in your body and accumulates in the pineal gland of the brain, the bones, and tissues. Therefore, it is important to remove as much fluoride from the body as possible to protect organ function, and your bones, teeth, and brain. Eating tamarinds can help eliminate fluoride. Also, increasing your iodine through natural sources such as seaweed, nori or kelp are helpful. Boron. a natural mineral that exists in food and the environment can be advantageous for eliminating unwanted fluoride buildup in your system. Foods that contain a high amount of boron include almonds, avocados, dates, hazelnuts, prunes, and raisins. Just remember the next time you do a detox, don't forget your oral care products! Eliminate all chemicals, dyes, alcohol, fluoride, Poloxamer 407, polysorbate 80 (or 20) or anything unnatural in any way, shape or form and include Simply Silver Mouthwash, the natural remedy for a healthy mouth.

Your mouth is full of bacteria that form a film over the teeth called dental plaque.When you consume food and drink high in carbohydrates – particularly sugary foods and drinks – the bacteria in plaque turn the carbohydrates into energy they need, producing acid at the same time.If the plaque is allowed to build up, the acid can begin to break down (dissolve) the surface of your tooth, causing holes known as cavities.
I know the latest craze is to use activated charcoal or bentonite clay for toothpaste. However, before you use the black goo you should know what you're putting in your mouth. Anything that goes in my mouth (the most vascular area of the whole body), I make sure it's not going to contain any harmful chemicals, toxins or petroleum products of any kind. Here is a quote from WebMD regarding activated charcoal:
I wish I had a dollar for everytime a patient would tell me that they wished they'd taken better care of their teeth--I would be a rich woman right now! Instead, too many times, people tend to disassociate their teeth with the rest of their body and just tell their dentist to pull them all. Later on, after the realization that NOTHING replaces their natural teeth, the patient is often discouraged with how they look, feel and taste food.
