Hi I am Ashley Michaud the founder of www.elementalgrowth.org I first started making my own toothpaste after getting frustrated that I couldn’t find a store bought a brand that didn’t have questionable ingredients, including Sweeteners, Triclosan, Glycerin, Surfactants, Artificial colors/dyes/synthetic flavors and Fluoride.
We’ve all been told that we need fluoride for our teeth. Our toothpaste tubes claim fluoride as the active ingredient that protects against tooth decay. Our water is fluoridated. Some dentists even prescribe fluoride pills. Unfortunately, though, fluoride appears to do much more harm than good.
Fluoride dangers are real in fact these two (Harvard International, National Library of Medicine) studies can prove that it is in fact a neurotoxin which should be avoided at all cost. Fluoride can damage health and fertility, destroy bones and teeth, and cause early puberty in children. It has been linked to thyroid issues, bone damage, arthritis, lower IQ, brain damage, alzheimer’s, destroying the male reproductive system and it is poison. In fact on toothpaste labels it says to call poison control if ingested.
For those of us who have sought a more natural option. You can find many brands that claim to be natural but you must keep in mind that most store brands are owned by 1 of 8 companies and remain loaded with questionable ingredients. My re-mineralizing toothpaste is made of natural, organic, raw, plant-based ingredients. You will find this recipe whitens, polishes and rebuilds enamel so you can proudly show off your smile.
Let’s Take a Look What a Holistic Oral Care Routine Looks Like
Daily (AM): Drink some water before anything else in your day, if you are a lemon water fan, opt for lemon essential oils instead because it’s less acidic for your enamel. Take your supplements with breakfast – Calcium, Vitamin D, Magnesium and Omega 3 Fatty Acids are essential for oral health and if your not getting enough in your diet one or more of these supplements are suggested for a healthy smile. After breakfast brush your teeth with essential oils (recipe card above ↟ ) or our remineralizing toothpaste recipe followed by flossing and a tongue scraping and our Elemental Greens Mouth Spray.
