15 Techniques for Gum Health
In the last Two Video we talked about techniques:
Part 1 – Re-mineralizing teeth, gingivitis, and periodontal Disease
Part 2 – Overcoming bleeding gums & chronic bad breath naturally
More Techniques for good breath & gum health are:
1. Oral Irrigator – This device that hooks up to your sink or shower and shoots a stream of pressurized water into your teeth that removes plaque and food particles in between teeth. They are especially good for people with braces.

Apple Cider Vinegar – I’m NO LONGER RECOMMENDING APPLE CIDER VINEGAR – All kinds of vinegar are too acidic and actually take calcium out of your teeth and bones.
– 3. Bentonite Clay – powerful antibacterial – put it in a mouthpiece or non-absorbable paper and leave it in your mouth for a few hours or overnight. This can also be done with activated charcoal, which is also good for teeth whitening but see my full video on that here
– 4. Ubiquinal – and this is good for heart health and will help to fight diabetes
– 5. Probiotics – helps bring good bacteria to fight bad
Starting with a soil or spore based probiotic above is just thrive. It’s important to switch off with another one that has different strains of bacteria such as Mercola’s complete probitotics below.
* Probiotics – I have done many videos on the benefits of probiotics for your physical, mental, and spiritual health, and the benefits list is almost endless. These create a good supply of healthy gut bacteria (aka flora) that can improve all aspects of your digestion, help to improve your absorption of nutrients, urinary and vaginal health, help soothe allergies, boost immunity, maintain weight control, help to detox, lower stress, and more. Unless I am traveling, I no longer take these because I have replaced them by eating Fermented foods such as
Vegetables, Kefir, sauerkraut, or Kombucha tea. Other food replacements for these are Miso, Pickles, Tempeh (the only type of soy I would consider eating), and Kimchi. Click to see my videos on how to make Kefir here and Fermented Vegetables here. I like these two brands very much and switch off between the two when I am traveling or not able to bring fermented foods with me. Mercola’s has a lot of quantity and the other two mentioned have good soil base strands of good bacteria. When taking this supplement you should also take with Psyllium husk fiber so the bacteria can thrive before just going through your system.
– Have this with Psyllium Husk fiber to feed the good bacteria –
– 6. Vitamin C and especially D3 and especially in the winter months is great
– Avoid taking calcium, as mentioned in the previous video unless you’re taking an equivalent or more magnesium
– 7. Sage Leaf Tea – Put a small bunch of sage leaves in boiling water for about 15 minutes, swish it around and drink or just get the tea bags. (click photos for links)
8. Horse Tail – Follow instructions on bag but typically 1 ounce of leaves for 10-20 minutes, steep and drink. Or buy the tea bags (photos for links)
9. Liquorish Root – I buy these in sticks and chew on them. They strengthen teeth & gums and have been used as medicine for thousands of years and a staple in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Its also a digestive, and beneficial for respiratory health and stress management. Liquorish Root also supports the reproductive organs, balances blood sugar, supports healthy liver function, and even helps detoxify the body from a large spectrum of over 1200 toxins!
According to a new study in the Journal of Natural Products, it has 2 active compounds that are effective at killing the bacteria that promote tooth decay (cavities) and gum disease.
10. Turmeric & Ginger – These can be added as spices to food or consumed as a tea. See my blog here for how to make the tea. Typically these can be bought in most supermarkets or health food stores.
12. For Teeth – Clove, Tea tree, Peppermint
13. For Gums – Myrrh, Frankincense, & Echinacea.

Things to Avoid
Getting a root canal as it is the preceptor of many diseases in the body especially breast cancer, heart disease, and many other health issues as it comes a breading ground for bad bacteria to form.
Never put silver fillings in your mouth as they leach the heavy metal mercury into your blood and you can see my full blogs here for videos on this, including how and why get them removed from a holistic doctor who knows how to do it.
These are the largest contributor to heavy metal poising in the body for most people.
Foods to Avoid for Teeth & Gum Health
In addition to the foods to avoid mentioned in previous videos smoking, and drinking alcohol is also bad for teeth and gums. Yes unfortunately alcohol kills the good bacteria and feeds that bad. Think about it, how many alcoholics or long time smokers have you seen with great teeth? And don’t ever use alcohol-based mouthwash or commercial brands as they have so many chemicals as well and only provide a temporary fix.
More Tips for Teeth & Gum Health
– Always Brush gently, at least twice a day, brushing hard only hurts your gums. You are only brushing to get off new plaque and that can come off with a piece of cloth.
– Get the softest possible brush and brush with your weak hand, this makes sure you don’t brush hard and helps strengthen the connection with your left and right brain.
– Brush for a couple minutes in different directions being sure to hit the space where your teeth meet your gums at a 45-degree angle to get out all the food particles
– Meditate and set an alarm twice a day to do 30 seconds of deep breathing to lower stress. Since stress is huge facture in your dental health, because people under stress have a compromised immune system that makes it harder for them to fight off the bacteria that causes periodontal disease
– Get your teeth cleaned every 6 months preferable with a holistic dentist to avoid a lot of these problems
