Online Summit: Dental-Health Connection Summit
September 6 - September 12Free
The health of your mouth is an essential part of overall wellness that is often overlooked. The danger is that dental issues can be stealth and avoid detection until it’s too late, when they’ve already led to long-term health consequences. Join us to learn integrative strategies for optimizing your oral and overall health!
Oral health is not just a vanity issue: Your mouth is the main entrance to your body, and inside, your teeth, gums, tongue, saliva and oral microbiome are key players in your health and wellness.
If you’re having issues in your mouth, it could be the source of systemic health issues.
Chronic gum disease has become an epidemic, and millions of people living with this condition have no idea they have it — or the dire consequences that can come from ignoring it. Science is now showing that oral health problems are linked to everything from Alzheimer’s to cancer to heart disease, as the mouth is directly connected to the gut, brain and central nervous system.
Even more shocking… doctors are now realizing that standard oral health practices — from fluoride to fillings — may be causing more harm than good.
Because the mouth is a window to the rest of the body, oral health issues can serve as an early warning sign for all sorts of diseases and conditions, and for the same reason, figuring out and addressing what’s going on in your mouth can help prevent and even reverse disease.
At the Dental-Health Connection Summit you’ll learn:
- What to look for in a healthy mouth
- How to care for your mouth the right way
- If old-fashioned oral care is hurting your health
- Solutions for sleep apnea and tongue ties
- How each tooth is connected to your body
- How to care for your oral microbiome
Join health advocate and investigative journalist Shivan Sarna for a series of interviews and masterclasses covering the emerging science in oral health: from new approaches to cavities and root canals, to oil pulling, tongue ties, sleep apnea, jaw health and protecting your oral microbiome. More than 40 holistic and biological dentistry experts, dental hygienists, microbiologists, physicians and others will share their wisdom on the relationship between oral and systemic health, as well as strategies to help you start healing your mouth right away to promote health and well-being throughout your body.
