Fears and Concern

Hi, I bought your book and all of the components of your system. At first, I thought this was great but then I started researching fluoride, chlorine dioxide, etc. and have become increasingly sickened by the idea of rinsing my mouth with these toxic chemicals. I do like xylitol however and use this, but I find it difficult to believe that anyone could possibly feel that fluoride and chlorine are safe. Even though they’re not swallowed completely, aren’t the tissues in the mouth absorbent—after all the first phase of digestion begins there. Your whole program has become increasingly horrifying to me.

Hi D,

I understand your concerns about toxic products and with all the information available today, it is certainly difficult to know what is good for us and what is bad. For years, dentists have been changing silver ( mercury) fillings to white ones, unaware that the toxins in white fillings may be MORE harmful.
We all travel through a learning process – and I respect your opinions and thoughts.

Chlorine Dioxide (Closys)
I think it is good to be concerned about fluoride, dyes and chemicals.
On the other hand, Chlorine dioxide has nothing to do with Chlorine ( except a similar sounding name).
The Closys mouth rinse works by delivering oxygen to the mouth – oxygenating the germs in the pockets around teeth.

ACT Fluoride
I would fight to have fluoride out of drinking water – and never suggest any of the strong gels that many professionals recommend. I explain this in my book and why (in the perfect world) we would not need fluoride. On the other hand, we must be aware that damaged teeth, fillings or broken teeth that need extraction, are a problem for general health. ACT fluoride will help strengthen and beautify and keep teeth healthy all your life long!

If you have good oral health and healthy teeth – you may not need anything more than xylitol to look after them. On the other hand, please be aware that gum disease can cause horrible effects on body health. Germs under the gums can attack your heart, joints and brain, and inflammation in the mouth has a wide reaching effect on the gut and other body systems.

Complete Mouth Care System
I have used my system personally for over 30 years – with the very rinses and paste that I recommend to others. My own children started using this system from the age of 6 years – every day of their lives.
They have exceptional teeth and very good general health.

Your Personal Choice
I think you must choose the way that feels comfortable to you – and I respect that.
I know that 90 percent of US adults have dangerous dental disease in their mouths and I know that this system can help them. I have nothing to do with the products that I recommend.
I am not paid or asked to do this. I spend my life writing and recommending because this is a wonderful way to control dental disease – which for many people is an answer to their prayers.

Thank you for your comments,
With best wishes for 2012,
