In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, you’re going to find out how, why and what to do about your oral health so you can not only have whiter and stronger teeth, but a better immune system, better skin and less of a chance for internal disease.
My guest is Trina Felber (RN, BSN, MSN, CRNA), the creator and CEO of Primal Life Organics, an all-natural health product company that specializes in oral health and skin care lines for women and men.
Trina focuses on oral health as the gateway to internal health and believes that the antiseptic products we use in our mouths are doing more harm than good. After more than 25 years as a registered nurse and nurse anesthetist, Trina has transitioned into an oral/dental health expert.
“The reason that we end up with cavities is because of the environment that our teeth are in,” Trina says. “Our teeth are in an acidic environment the majority of the time. Most of the foods that we’re eating are acidic. The dental products that were being sold on the market are creating more acids in your mouth. The more acid you have in your mouth, the more minerals your teeth lose, the more bad bacteria you grow, and the more chance of having what I call leaky gum syndrome or gingivitis. Once you go down that path, you end up with all sorts of health issues that are inflammatory related, including leaky gut syndrome and all of that digestive issues that you might suffer from.”
Listen on for some great tips on how taking care of your oral health, like ditching your toothpaste and mouthwash, using light instead of peroxide, and why minerals are so important.
