“A must read if you truly want to understand oral health and how it affects the health of your overall systemic well-being . . . a healthcare gem.” —Dr. Mark Burhenne, DDS of Ask the Dentist
It’s a popular theory that good health starts in your gut. But think about it: your mouth is the gateway to your gut. The good and bad bacteria in your mouth are directly linked to the bacteria in your digestive system. The oral microbiome can also affect illnesses and diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, certain cancers, and more. That’s why maintaining a balanced oral microbiome is one of the most important things you can do to set a solid foundation for your overall health.
Heal Your Oral Microbiome is the first book out there to focus exclusively on the oral microbiome. In these pages, you’ll learn how your mouth paves the way for full-body health, as well as how to identify common habits and practices that could be negatively impacting your unique microbiome. You’ll also discover important steps you can take to heal and balance your mouth’s microbes to boost your immune system, fight a variety of illnesses and create a solid foundation for your overall well-being.
“Wow. It’s high time a solid, clinician and consumer-friendly book is delivered on the oral microbiome, is it not? Cass Nelson-Dooley began researching the topic years ago, and is now arguably one of the foremost leading experts on integrative interventions for oral health.” —Dr. Kara Fitzgerald, author of Younger You
