IN THIS EPISODE OF BULLETPROOF RADIO... you’re going to find out how your oral health and gut microbiome are connected.
My guest today is Trina Felber, RN, BSN, MSN, CRNA, the creator and CEO of Primal Life Organics, an all-natural health product company that specializes in oral health and skin care.
After more than 25 years as a registered nurse and nurse anesthetist, Trina turned her attention to the mouth microbiome and how it influences all your body systems--whether you know it or not.
She focuses on oral health as the gateway to internal health, so discuss topics that could give you clues about your own biology:
- Saliva is the “lifeblood” of the mouth;
- Red light (and blue!) can improve gum tissue; and
- What you must stop doing when brushing your teeth and why it matters so much to your oral health.
Your Saliva: “Saliva is a secretion no one's talking about,” Trina says. “And it's one of, if not the most important secretion in your body, because it does so many things, including nitric oxide production. If you have an imbalance in the microbiome inside your mouth and inside your gut, nitric oxide declines and your body can't produce nitric oxide. … Nitric oxide is a vasodilator, it's related to internal health, it's anti-inflammatory, it creates better sleep and better brain function.”
Your Gums: “Red light therapy is going to help with the condition of your gums, it's going to improve the overall environment inside your mouth, and it's going to help with the right environment to grow the right bacteria that in the long-term is going to help with nitric oxide production,” Trina says. “Red light therapy actually penetrates your gum tissue and will increase blood flow and reduce inflammation of the gum tissue.”
Your Brushing Habits: “Brushing too hard, we don't think about it, but it's common sense, but we still do it because you feel like you need to scrub to get your teeth clean and your gums,” Trina says. “But a lot of people just brush way too hard. It's really a soft motion. The softer you brush, the more you actually stimulate detoxification and increase blood flow. It's like a massage. Sometimes when you massage too hard, you create inflammation, you create more problems. And the softer that you massage, like lymphatic massages, are extremely, there's no depth to them. It's very light touch.” (Even with a sonic toothbrush!)
