You might be wondering: “What does my dental health have to do with SIBO (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth), IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), or gut health?”
The surprise answer is… a lot! Your digestive system is one big long tube – it starts in your mouth and comes out the other end – it makes sense that what happens in your mouth would have a drip effect on the health of your gut and entire body.
Your mouth is home to your oral microbiome – the first part of your gut microbiome. After the gut itself, the oral microbiome is the most diverse microbiome in your body. The food you eat, your toothpaste, what type of dental work you’ve had done, and even who you’ve been kissing directly impacts the health of your oral microbiome and in turn your gut!
Half of the adults in the world have periodontal (gum) disease and don’t know it. Periodontal disease is caused by bacteria living in the mouth and causes a range of symptoms from bad breath to sensitive teeth and swollen gums. Because your mouth is the first stop in your digestive tract, having periodontal disease can affect the bacteria in the rest of your body – and contribute to conditions like SIBO/IMO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth/Intestinal Methanogen Overgrowth).
Nervous yet? I totally get it.
I was freaked out when I learned this information! That’s why I began learning more about the oral microbiome with experts and created the the Whole Body Dental Rescue Summit, an event that gives you access to masterclasses with 21 experts that will teach you how to heal and take care of your oral microbiome.
We cover everything from the relationship of the Chinese meridian tooth chart to the connection between oral bacteria and Altzheimers, cancer, and heart disease. If you want to know how to care for your oral health, dental health, and oral microbiome leading to overall better health, this event provides you with information to help you transform this crucial brain-mouth-body axis.
When you purchase the Masterclass summit, you’ll also get unlimited access to ALL Masterclasses, searchable PDFs, transcripts, Q&As, and exclusive discounts on my favorite oral healthcare products.
