Is Your Toothpaste Toxic?

What prompted Pam Rich, a Chopra certified Vedic instructor and holistic business owner, to switch her toothpaste was the line on the back of the package that read: “If swallowed, call poison control.” “Really, this is the standard for dental hygiene!” exclaims Rich, of Essentially Powerful, whose focus is on the holistic wellness of Long Islanders.

Many natural health-seeking individuals like Rich have begun changing their toothpaste to safer nontoxic ones in an effort to avoid harmful chemicals and decrease toxic exposure.

“In a recent conversation that I had the pleasure to be a part of between Drs. Deepak Chopra and Rudolph Tanzi, coauthors of Super Genes,” shares Rich, “they were agreeing that the number one cause for inflammation in the body comes from our gums, and that the consistent low levels of infection and inflammation are a contributing factor to the breakdown of brain function as we age.” This fact coupled with the fact that the current standard for toothpaste have admitted toxins, supported Rich’s change to all-natural tooth-care products. When talking about current oral hygiene products on the market, Rich says she is offended by all the toothpastes with the warning and the bright-blue mouthwashes. “Why would you put anything blue in your mouth?”

Rich says that it used to be a nightmare for her to have her teeth cleaned because she was always cringing at the scraping, bleeding and pain of the procedure. She states that since switching to an all-natural toothpaste infused with essential oils and using a natural mouthwash, she has experienced a complete turnaround with her yearly cleanings. They are now easy, and she was even recently complimented by her hygienist. She asked Rich what she was using since she had absolutely no inflammation.

The toothpaste and mouthwash Rich currently uses are part of Young Living’s Thieves line of dental care. It contains essential oils known to support dental hygiene, like peppermint, spearmint, cinnamon and clove (which has been used historically for dental care).
