These days, a lot of people are wondering about maintaining the health of their immune systems.

And if you’ve been listening to my special episodes on the coronavirus, then you’ve probably heard me talk about the importance of your gut microbiome.

But one thing I DIDN’T talk about is the importance of the bacteria living inside your MOUTH.

That’s right! Healthy dental hygiene can actually play a HUGE role in the health of your immune system.

And my guest today is going to tell you all about it. Nadine Artemis is the author of Renegade Beauty and Holistic Dental Care: The Complete Guide to Healthy Teeth and Gums

On today’s episode, she and I are going to discuss what to look for in your toothpaste, how to floss properly, and how taking care of your TEETH can actually help you keep your immune system strong.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The connection between your mouth, your gut and your BRAIN – and why neglecting the health of one means neglecting the health of all three (1:00)
  • Why your toothpaste may be RUINING your health (and may even be causing “leaky gum”) (4:30)
  • 3 easy steps to care for your oral health the RIGHT way (and they’re NOT what your dentist tells you) (6:00)
  • Common pantry staples everyone should be using to clean their teeth – and why they are SO much better for you than toothpaste (8:00)
  • Why commercial whitening products are actually causing your teeth to YELLOW in the long run – and what to use instead (15:30)
  • The DANGEROUS chemical hiding in oral care products and even tap water – and how YOU can avoid it (17:00)
  • One simple hygiene practice you should NEVER skip (and how it can add YEARS onto your life) (20:00)
  • The “ancient essentials” that can help with everything from cleansing your home to reducing stress and anxiety (29:00)
  • How to make your own hand sanitizer at home with only 2 ingredients (plus, one tip for staying sanitized on-the-go) (36:30)
