Dental Care: Holistic Practices to Keep You Healthy

by Elise Bowerman

Fluoride and mercury (silver) amalgam's are toxins we often unknowingly allow in our bodies which cause major distress and dis-ease. Below are excellent links to solidify your research on the harmful effects, along with finding naturally supportive dentists... especially if you need to get the mercury removed from your mouth.

"Medical Myth:

Fluoridating the water and dental products is good for your teeth and stops tooth decay in children.

Fact: Rather than strengthening bone tissue, fluoride causes osteoporosis. New evidence shows fluoride can also damage the central nervous system, causing brain dysfunction, lower IQ and possibly even Alzheimer's disease (What Doctor's Don't Tell You, vol. 3, no. 9 and vol. 9, no. 3.)"
