Abit about the Dental Kit – Nature’s way of caring for your Teeth and Gums.
For years I suffered from dental problems! My early visits to, what we called at primary school, the “murder house” were traumatic to say the least. Not only did the school dental nurse use a foot pedal drill (in an age of electricity!) the sessions were painful and traumatic. Like most of people in my age bracket the dental nurses mercilessly drilled to replace good dental enamel with a toxic substance considered at the time to be superior to enamel – dental almalgan – ie 50% mercury – a potent neurotoxin!
Fortunately dentistry has come a long way since then. Many dentists have finally realised that mercury should never enter a human body – let alone carry it around for life in one of the most absorbable surfaces in the human body – the mouth! Many dentists today refuse to have mercury amalgam anywhere in their practices.
Today we have better dentists using painless or close to painless methods. Dental filling materials are now largely biocompatible and many dentists now have a resident hygienist. Despite all this, dental problems are still almost endemic in New Zealand and civilised countries.
My Dental kit contains the leading edge of Natural holistic Dental care. We recommend you visit your dentist at least once a year for a checkup and also to see a dental hygienist at least every 6 months. Alongside this program, you and your dentist will be amazed at the wonderful results. Less or no decay, perfect gums, fresh breath and a smile that says you have saved a great deal of money and you have happy teeth and gums.
Healthy teeth and gums have a profound influence on our physical and psychological well-being. A smile is the simplest and most expressive piece of body language which reveals a great deal about our personality and self-image. The joy of a smile, the confidence of fresh breath, and the pleasure of clean teeth gives radiance to the personality. The health of our teeth and gums not only reflects our overall health but can also profoundly influence it. Any imbalance in a tooth (decay, abscesses, gum diseases, some fillings and root fillings) can affect the auto-immune system, creating a host of seemingly unrelated problems.
Prevention is the key word and if only individuals knew more about simple dental techniques such as correct brushing and simple commonly available herbs and spices (even household salt and baking soda), there would be far less of, arguably, one of New Zealand’s greatest tragedies – tooth decay and its predisposing condition – gingivitis (gum inflammation).
The mouth, including all mucosa (soft tissue), inner cheeks, roof of the mouth, tongue, gums and teeth all have an integral homeostatic balance. The correct P.H. (acid/alkaline balance) is essential, as well as proper mineralisation and cleansing, to maintain the healthy flora and minimise harmful pathogens. Disease and decay-producing bacteria which form colonies in the gingival margins (the space between the tooth and the gum), and between the teeth, secrete toxic acids corrosive enough to dissolve the hardest substance in the human body – enamel of the teeth. The enamel is not the only thing they damage however – once decay sets into the tooth, toxins travel right into the interior of the tooth and find their way further down the dentine to the very root nerve and eventually to infect the body’s system through the blood stream. However, the blood stream is already affected by the plaque bacteria within the gingival margins. The metabolism of the mouth is probably one of the fastest in all our physiology. By the time it takes you to read this sentence nearly all the cells lining the mucus membrane of your mouth will have been destroyed and regenerated. How effective this process is for the rest of the oral environment is up to you. The importance of proper dental hygiene cannot be underestimated.
Michael spent a whole year researching and learning more about dental health and tooth decay and in response to his findings he created a kit that is safe to use for the whole family.
In this kit you will find:
Dental Powder: This is a combination of Himalayan Salt, Baking Soda, Prickly Ash, Echinacea & Comfrey powder and your choice of Peppermint or Cinnamon flavour. We use all organic input wherever possible.
This combination has been used for many of years as an alternative to common household toothpastes. At last, NO more Sugars, Aluminium or Fluoride going into your mouth! Collectively these three ingredients provide the perfect support for healthy pH, essential minerals and local immunity for healthy gums and teeth.
How to use the Dental Powder: Simply wet your Toothbrush with water, dip it into the Dental Powder, then put 2 drops of the Hydrogen Peroxide “Activator” on (1x daily). Brush for 1-2 minutes. Rinse, then follow up with the Natural Mouthwash Spray for that fresh clean breathe. NOTE: Use the Hydrogen Peroxide activator until it’s all gone, and then continue with just the powder. We recommend using 1-2 bottle’s of the Activator per year, these can be purchased individually from us direct from the clinic at 26 Conway street.
Hydrogen Peroxide Activator 7% We have included this in the dental kit because it rapidly oxidizes and destroys bacteria, especially that little fella known as “Berty Germ” – streptococcus mutans, one of the main group that causes tooth decay and periodontal disease!
Natural Mouthwash: This is a cleansing, immune stimulating mouthwash that has been made to not only freshen the breathe, but more importantly cleanse the mouth of any unwanted bacteria whilst keeping the gums healthy and strong. Our mouthwash is a natural blend of Prickly ash, Myrrh, Peppermint, Echinacea, Cardamon, Cinnamon & Licorice blended with colloidal minerals and vegetable glycerine. Pleasant and effective for the whole family.
Tongue Scraper: Your tongue scraper is either made of stainless steel or copper. These metals are anti-bacterial and along with the specific shape of the scraper, is designed to literally scrape off toxic waste from the surface of your tongue. These waste toxins are a combination of dead bacteria, hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans (Volatile Sulfur Compounds) which are the primary components of halitosis (bad breath). In order not to reabsorb these unwanted components into the system (and freshen the breath), it is essential that you remove this coating each morning directly upon awakening. The massaging which naturally occurs is also massaging the reflexes to every organ of your body – as these are also mapped on your tongue like the reflexology signs in your feet. Ideally, a tongue scraper is used every day, early in the morning, on an empty stomach.
Simply hold the two ends of the tongue scraper in both hands. Extend the tongue and place the tongue scraper on the surface of the tongue, as far back as is comfortable. Gently pull the tongue scraper forward so that it removes the unwanted coating. Rinse the tongue scraper and repeat as necessary, usually 7-14 times. For some, the use of a tongue scraper can trigger the gag reflex or, on occasion, vomiting. Using a tongue scraper gets easier with practice, but this uncomfortable side effect is easily avoided by relaxing the tongue or exhaling during use. It is also possible to be overly aggressive with a tongue scraper and to temporarily damage the taste buds. Gentle strokes will remove the coating on the tongue without harming the underlying tissue.
We have also added a different tongue scraper to your kit called an Ora Brush. This has the exact same concept as the stainless one, only it’s a different design. See which one you prefer – we find they are both great!
We recommend the use of dental tape or dental brushes, not floss. (Many find that floss cuts into the gums causing bleeding). Dental tape or brushes are best used after meals when needed and at the very least once daily to disorganise the plaque and dislodge food residue. Rinse. You can pick these up at your local pharmacy or supermarket.
Health Benefits of Tongue Scraping:
- Removing dead bacteria from the tongue, thus preventing the reabsorption of these toxins back into the system
- Waking up the organs each morning, as different areas of the tongue correlate with different organs
- Sparking the digestion
- Enhancing the taste buds
- Removing bad breath (halitosis)
The “bad” bacteria in the mouth has recently been linked to other disorders in the body from digestive issues, cardiovascular disease and even Alzheimer’s. The coating on your tongue is a clear sign that there are toxins prevalent in the system. Therefore in order to treat this issue from the inside out, one will need to detoxify the system and remove the cause(s) of the toxins. New Zealand Herbals has a complete and simple system by which to do this. Our main detoxification program is:
- Cleanse your blood stream – Blood Purifying Tonic 10-30mls daily
- Remineralise and restore healthy colon flora – Mineral Max 3caps twice daily
- Cleanse your bowel daily – If it doesn’t move at least once per day please use Regular Bowel, 2 capsules each evening
- Restore full regularity gut flora and minerals – Procleanse one heaped teaspoon in 200 mls water each morning
- Restore healthy mucus membranes – Cod liver oil 1-2 capsules daily
There is more than one form of fluoride – to simplify sodium fluoride is toxic. Calcium fluoride is natural and safe. Sodium fluoride is supposed to be more soluble to tooth surfaces, it’s also a good rat poison which has no earthly reason to be in a human mouth. However, no mineral or trace element is found on its own in nature – Minerals come in complex form – along with other minerals. Calcium fluoride is found naturally in a good natural diet especially one based on nutrient dense foods, soups and broths.
Mercury is a natural element, a toxic heavy metal, which is highly volatile, the vapour form having the ability to kill cells outright rather than merely do damage.
What you can see in the link below is the mercury vapour coming off a 25-year-old amalgam filling after being exposed to heat the same as the temperature of the human body. The background is a fluorescent screen. The mercury vapour absorbs the mercury vapour exposing it on the screen. Substantial amounts of mercury leaks from amalgam fillings, it is 1000 time higher than environmental agency permits as safe.
Mercury Vapor: One particularly dangerous form of mercury is methylated mercury, which is produced by the chelating systems of certain bacteria. If inorganic mercury is found in your amalgams and these bacteria are found in your digestive tract, the inorganic mercury will eventually make its way to the bacteria where it will be converted to methylated mercury and from there make its way to your brain! Methylated mercury is hundreds of times more toxic than inorganic mercury and has a particular affinity for the brain where the symptom complex can include mild to severe intellectual impairment and/or emotional impairment.
How much Mercury is too much?
The federal agency responsible for regulation of allowable levels of substances at the workplace has established 50 ug./cc as the maximum allowable level of mercury vapour in the workplace. The average level of mercury vapour in the mouths of people with amalgams varies between 50 and 150 ug./cc. When removed from your mouth, dental amalgam is considered a toxic waste by the Environmental Protection Agency and must be handled in a certain way to protect dental office personnel from mercury poisoning. This is the same stuff, unchanged, which just came out of your tooth!
There are over 125 known symptoms of mercury toxicity. Most of them are vague and non-specific. It is not known what role mercury toxicity may play in MS (multiple sclerosis) and ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s Disease), however Dr. Hal Huggins, a dentist in Colorado Springs, Colorado has developed a protocol for amalgam removal and replacement, and in treating large numbers of MS and ALS patients has noticed improvement of symptoms in 91%. People who were wheelchair bound often get up and walk!
Symptoms of Mercury Poisoning:
Other people have nervous system symptoms such as anxiety, insomnia, depression, loss of appetite, and these people also demonstrate a high incidence of recovery from these troublesome symptoms after removal of dental amalgams. Many people with severe long-standing depression are cured by amalgam removal and chelation. Vomiting, gastritis, colitis, excessive salivation, abdominal pain, anger, sleep disturbance, headaches, heart attack, dizziness, speech disorders, leg cramps, clumsiness, bad breath, fatigue and irritability just to name some of the 125 which have been documented so far.
If you already have symptoms of mercury toxicity, these symptoms are coming from mercury already vaporised from your amalgams and now residing in the tissues of your body, particularly in your brain cells. The amalgams represent a source of future further intoxication and, for that reason, should be removed.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do not make any arrangements to have your Mercury fillings removed without consulting with me first. It is ESSENTIAL that you are on the right programme to support your immunity whist these toxins are released.
Whether or not you decide to have your dental amalgams removed it is most important that you protect your immune, digestive and nervous system. A few points to wrap up on Dental health:
- Visit your dentist at least once every 6 months for a full check-up and assessment. Preferably choose one who has a holistic practice and is familiar with mercury amalgam replacement and some knowledge of herbal/homeopathic remedies.
- Eat whole foods and reduce/eliminate processed and refined foods, particularly sugar.
- Brush your Teeth 2x daily with our Natural Dental Powder + Floss regularly
- Support your immunity with Blood Tonic and keep your mineral saturation up by taking Mineral Max and Cod Liver Oil daily.
- Drink Pure water – NO Chlorine/Fluoride
