More and more people are trying to eat healthier and are looking to organic solutions as a means to avoid any unnecessary chemicals in their bodies. Cancer, mental health issues and brain disorders sometimes tend to be born of the chemical poisoning that results from all of the preservatives, added flavors and added colors in our food today.
For most people, the first step is a whole body detox. This can be done by getting rid of all the junk food in the house and other foods that contain ingredients you can’t pronounce. The next step is to restock with healthy foods and complete a detox diet that usually consists of smoothies and foods that have antioxidants. Yet some people overlook one very important area: their teeth.
In the past, fillings and other dental procedures were done using materials that contain mercury. Your Orange County dentist can tell you if you have any of these materials in your mouth. If you do, part of your detox program should be to have those materials removed and replaced by your Orange County dentist.
Planning for a healthy diet is a great idea as long as you follow through with it. However, if you have mercury in your mouth, you are poisoning your body on a regular basis. The mercury gets into your blood stream and can cause all sorts of serious health problems. It has been linked to Alzheimer’s, for instance. Don’t wait until you see the effects of the mercury. Have your dental work examined today.
