Holistic Dental Care provides an all-encompassing, do-it-yourself guide to oral care. With fifty-three full-color photos and illustrations, this book offers simple dental self-care strategies and practices that get to the root of problems in our mouths in order to prevent issues and gently restore dental health.
Traditional dental care only addresses the symptoms and not the cause of body imbalances. Holistic Dental Care is based on a "whole body approach" that treats the root cause of these issues.
Nadine Artemis, the dental health expert, and author describes the ecology of the mouth in her tour, explaining the physiology of teeth as well as bacteria and decay.
Artemis exposes the harmful chemicals in many store-bought toothpastes and mouthwashes. They also go into detail about how mercury fillings are dangerous and ceramic fillings are much safer.
Artemis provides detailed information about healthy nutrition and oral care for children, as well as the advantages of using botanical substances and plant extracts to maintain oral health.
Additionally, Artemis outlines an eight-step self-dentistry protocol that can prevent decay, illness, acidic saliva, plaque build-up, gum bleeding, and inflammation.
