Can I just find a natural, minty-fresh toothpaste without all of the weird stuff? All of The majority of popular toothpaste brands have inorganic ingredients that are poisonous compounds laced with the implied notion, but includes a hint of certainty, that they are serving you well. I say the majority because as we awaken, the brands most of us grew up using are no longer our standard household products. Why does a health product you put into your mouth have a warning that usually reads a little something like this – “If accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center right away.” Really! Poison Control? Perhaps sloshing poison around the inside of your mouth is one of the reasons dentists test for oral cancer.

Although there are several harmful ingredients blended into our oral care products, including aluminum lake (enhances artificial color), and polyethylene (plastic), fluoride is one of the largest culprits of certain medical pathology. Although these companies promote the supposed benefits of fluoride (e.g. prevents cavities, hardens enamel), they will never be honest enough to warn you of potential side effects resulting from each ingredient in widespread consumer products.

Fluoride is a neurotoxin that has been linked to reduced IQ, impaired neurobehavioral development and brain damage, among many other serious health issues. Parents, do not ingest or give your children fluoride supplements or tap water. Most tap water has harmful and unnecessary additives, so I try not drink or cook with it. Also, in spite of a product or drug being FDA approved, this does not mean that it’s in the best interest of your well-being. I’ve said it once or twice before and I’ll say it a million times more, the FDA is a business first. Do you really believe a governmental administration that does not enforce genetically modified organism labels on GMO foods cares about your health? I digress, but only slightly. I’ll save the FDA topic for another post.

Fluoride accumulates in your pineal gland, a small endocrine gland that secretes its products and hormones directly into the blood and not through a duct. The pineal gland is located on the back part of the third cerebral ventricle of the brain, which is a fluid-filled space. In case you’re one of my fellow metaphysical folks, your pineal gland is in the same place as your third-eye chakra. To have optimal oral health and keep your third-eye open, you must switch to natural toothpaste and other oral health products. I’ve tried several brands of natural toothpaste over years and have found that I favor Dr. Bronner’s, Tom’s, and Jasön. Although they contain carrageenan, a food additive extracted from red seaweed to thicken certain foods and products, which also has questionable effects on the body, I still use them simply because I read the labels and don’t feel like I should enroll in another chemistry class. I know what every ingredient is, and that is something like a breath of fresh air.
