Oral health...or cardiovascular & bronchopulmonary disease, hormone imbalance, allergies, organ dysfunction, developmental problems in children, cognitive & attention deficit disorders, asthma & eczema, toxinosis...cancer!!!? Let's examine the effects of toothpastes & solutions in more detail!


Have you considered that one of the most used products we use in our daily lives to protect our oral health is causing irreversible damage to our bodies?

And don't just think of fluoride and preservatives.... Most people are aware of them.

These formulations contain numerous toxic substances associated with allergies, hormonal imbalances, autoimmune diseases, skin conditions, asthma, etc. and, of course, cancers! And there are too many official studies proving the damage each of these chemical additives causes to the body !

Now consider that the c@rtels of the f@rm@c0industry recommend fluoridation even to children and babies !!!

And little girls, due to the synthetic products that "load" their bodies with, either from food, or, cleaning products, synthetic (plastic) clothes, and so on, have reached the point that their menstrual periods start at the age of 10......and nobody knows why...(ironically)!!!

Let's not get into it now...


Having a look at the toxic chemicals the industry adds to toothpastes we see from synthetic Dyes, synthetic Flavours, Carrageenan, Parabens, Microplastics, Diethanolamine, and more poisons.

Diethanolamine, for example, is associated with Bronchopneumonic disease, read it here.

And then we wonder why so many people are suffering from asthma, etc.....but the cartels will recommend you medicines, they won't tell you what to protect your health from... How will they get "a living"...?


Another example is Phthalates.

Hormonal disorders (as mentioned earlier, especially concerning young girls), issues such as Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), Hashimoto’s, and the prevalence of thyroid removal surgeries, raise concerns. Additionally, problems in child development (including conditions like autism, ADHD - attention deficit disorder, speech disorders, etc.), disruptions in the functioning of various organs, challenges in the reproductive system of both adults and children/adolescents, and complications in pregnancy (notably couples struggling with conception) warrant attention.


What does the industry do? It offers drugs with potential side effects, synthetic hormone treatments (linked to heart disease, stroke, and cancer — a topic I'll cover in a dedicated article on Hormonal Replacement & Cancer, for now, you can refer to this and this research). It seems more focused on profit than on guiding individuals on how to safeguard their health.


Another chemical additive prevalent in the cosmetic, detergent, disinfectant, soap, clothing, and toy industries is Triclosan. This compound, found in human blood, poses a threat to the Cardiovascular and Reproductive systems, leading to hormonal imbalances and an increased risk of cancer.

And of course, when it was convenient to label this poison as harmless, who paid for the study to debunk it? Colgate :D The study is not credible due to vested interests, of course ;)

Now, let's examine the Cytotoxicity to gum fibroblasts caused by the ingredients commonly found in toothpaste, commercial toothpaste brands, and mouthwashes.

Now, let's delve into the allergic reactions associated with artificial fragrances in toothpaste and dermatitis ( not only in toothpaste, but, in all products, soaps, cosmetics, perfumes etc). Here we have a case of lip Cheilitis that persisted for months, causing severe itching and pain, and even spreading to the mucous membrane of the lips.

But no doctor mentions these side effects...because they do NOT KNOW them!! Do you know what they do? They prescribe cortisone creams for eczema!!!  The "living" we were talking about...

I was recently contacted by a mummy who's little child developed dermatitis from the use of toothpaste. The paediatrician recommended a cortisone cream for eczema, but the child had an allergic reaction. They had no idea that eczema is itchy almost all the time! Her child's skin was not itchy...

Anyway, we fixed it with natural herbal cream and a ban on toothpaste...thankfully.



One more concerning carcinogen in the industry is Formaldehyde. Surprisingly, many dentists might not be aware that the presence of Formaldehyde in conventional toothpastes, posing risks through inhalation and skin absorption, can lead to conditions such as Pharyngeal Cancer, Myeloid Leukaemia, and Skin Irritation, among others. This information, however, is acknowledged by various health-related organizations.

Let's explore the various names under which Formaldehyde is listed in the cosmetics industry, pressed wood, food, varnishes, artificial nails, hair products like dyes and Keratin, and many other applications. This knowledge will help us recognize and actively avoid it.

The last ingredient I want to highlight today is Carrageenan! It's astonishing how extensively it's used as a stabilizer and preservative in various products, including cosmetics (which can end up in the bloodstream) and food items (found in yogurt, soft drinks, plant-based milks, and almost all processed foods).

The potential effects are alarming, causing Inflammation, Diabetes, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Cardiovascular Diseases, food Allergies, Glucose Intolerance, Neurological Diseases, Digestive Issues, and even serious conditions like Colon Cancer. Inflammation triggered by Carrageenan can further lead to conditions such as Arthritis, Tendonitis, and Chronic Cholecystitis (gallbladder inflammation).

For a touch of humour, have a look at how Crest advertises...!!!

I am of the opinion that I have supplied you with sufficient information for you to conduct your own research and make a wise choice regarding what to consume.


What to note:


· The toxins we examined end up in the bloodstream. And therefore into our organs and cells. We choose natural cosmetics, detergents, therapeutic preparations, cleaners and disinfectants.


·  We do not take pharmaceutical treatments (I have dubbed them "side effects" myself) if we have not first identified the cause of the problem so that we can treat it, definitively and safely (this is Holistic Medicine).


·  Before we trust anything, we always do our research (including me informing you now). RESEARCH! Carry out an English search and compare sources and results. Greek sites and information in Greece are sleeping the sleep of the righteous...semi-literacy has prevailed...and the logic of the masses is "an aunt of mine took a drug a bartender told her about and her problem, which is not much like yours, is gone, so take this"


·  Always check which company or organization has funded the research you are concerned about. Don't rely on it when there are vested interests!

*See the Colgate example.


·  It goes without saying that you go to the market with a magnifying glass if you don't have bionic vision to check the ingredients you are putting into your body! :P



Let's examine how we can maintain safe and effective oral hygiene, with options that can be made at home.

 

·  On the internet, you can find various homemade recipes, which usually contain salt or soda.

If you choose one of the 2, make sure their grain is extremely fine, so as not to irritate the gums, and not to damage the enamel of the teeth!!! This will lead to Decay.

 

·  Other recipes suggest Bentonite (clay). Combined with an antibacterial ingredient, it might be effective. Personally, I wouldn't use it because it is completely inert and offers nothing to improve oral hygiene. If it suits you, you can use it as an ingredient in your recipe, but ingestion is prohibited! So, NOT suitable for children!

 

·  There are those who suggest that oil should be the base of the formula. I wouldn't use this for my own people and me neither, for the reason that it has no cleaning properties against acids (which wear down enamel), and because in the end I wouldn't feel my mouth clean enough. You can't completely rinse an oil to effectively remove bacteria and waste, and the “aftertaste” would be greasy.

 

·  Glycerol (glycerine in US) is another ingredient I've observed in improvised recipes. This one has many flaws.

1.   If the source is unknown, it's likely a petroleum derivative that is carcinogenic, like baby oil and petroleum jelly, and so on.

2.   Let's say it is plant based, but as a sweetener it is acidic (like sugar). Our mouth's acidity is actually increasing while we're trying to reduce it.

3.   To avoid the necessity of a preservative, it's important to have a high concentration of glycerol, or other antibacterial ingredients in the recipe. If not, it will turn into a breeding ground for germs. The antibacterial effects of essential oils are mild, but they are not suitable for preserving formulations. Be cautious about this!

4.   It leaves a residue on the teeth, which means that its acidity remains.

 

·  The industry and some DIY toothpaste makers use Xylitol due to its positive effects on oral hygiene. But, it is associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Nephrolithiasis, Diarrhoea, Intestinal Gas, it is NOT allowed  in pregnancy, breastfeeding, for babies, and it is deadly for pets (!!!). Someone should use at least 20 grams daily, to achieve results in oral hygiene. It's not something I would choose for my preparations as a Holistic Therapist.

·  Some uninformed individuals may suggest using Hydrogen Peroxide, to irritate me :P

However, we avoid putting anything so acidic in our mouths for the reasons I mentioned earlier. While trying to do good, using such substances can actually worsen the situation. Our teeth already face exposure to enough acids from daily consumption of foods like animal products, processed fats, sugar, fruits, and so on.


So, what did I do?

To ensure oral and pharyngeal hygiene without experiencing side effects, toxicity, or the risk of microbial and bacterial outbreaks—eliminating the need for preservatives—I have opted for toothpaste in powder form, commonly referred to as 'Toothpowder' in my circle :)

People frequently ask for it, and personally, I've been using it for over 15 years with great satisfaction. It's interesting to note that the use of toothpowder dates back to ancient times in Chinese, Greek, and Egyptian medicine.

  Of course I use very fine-grained soda, I enrich it with therapeutic herbs, safe and antimicrobial-antibacterial essential oils and spices, so that the teeth and the pharyngeal cavity are cleaned well. I never needed a cleaning from a dentist, I have yet (at 45) to have a single filling, and there is no sign of decay, discolouration, sensitivity, etc.

It also makes some foaming, due to the natural antacid agents I use , but I wouldn't care too much about that.

 

Now get a funny smile :)

  Based on the information you now have, conduct your own research and decide what suits your needs to create something safe and beneficial.

  • Glycerol and oils as a base do not meet my criteria, but they are a thousand times better options than commercial poisons!!! You are the judge. (Glycerol in English, Glycerin in American). As long as you have knowledge of their quality.

  • Watch out for claimed natural and harmless toothpastes. Carrageenan has been found in them too.

 

Another factor that directly affects our oral health is Diet-Nutrition.

Do me a favour and stop buying processed foods... If you do a little planning, even if you don't have time, you can have homemade-probiotic mustard, homemade-probiotic tomato salsa & other sauces, Sauerkraut, (these have a self-life of a year), homemade bread and meals, keep them in the freezer and refrigerator, only  by cooking larger quantities. That will save energy too!

 

  Maybe by dropping their sales, we'll be able to bring more health onto the planet....

I wish!!!!
