Why it's time to throw out conventional toothpaste products
Here's just a sample of the toxic ingredients found in conventional toothpaste products:• Sodium fluoride - Toxic by-product of aluminum and fertilizer chemical plants. • Triclosan - An actual pesticide chemical, used in toothpaste to prevent spoilage. • Sodium lauryl sulfate - A chemical sudsing agent with well known toxic side effects. • Propylene glycol - An antifreeze chemical used to winterize RVs. • DEA - A foaming agent that's linked to liver and kidney cancers. • Chemical sweeteners like aspartame and saccharin. Are these the kind of chemicals you really want to be putting in your mouth and absorbing while you brush your teeth? Remember, the mucosal lining of your mouth is HIGHLY ABSORBENT! Those toxins go directly into your bloodstream. These chemicals can cause the mucous membranes inside the mouth to slough-off as well. Switch your toothpaste (and maybe your mouthwash as well) to a natural, chemical-free kind. READ LABELS, or talk to me about other options. This problem may take several weeks for the 'acne' to resolve. In the meantime, do not aggressively treat the area like you would with true acne. Gently cleanse the area, keep it hydrated, and please do not pick! No home surgery, no benzoyl peroxide, no squeezing, no antibiotics/antibiotic ointments, or OTC/Prescription topicals. Be patient, and let it heal.
