About this show:
If you’re in your fertility years, and you haven’t considered the health of your teeth and gums, today’s show with Dr Lewis Ehlrich helps you understand what the science is showing us about the link between those two things – we cover everything from:
- Tooth decay and gum disease and what they can tell a holistic dentist about what might be going on
- How what’s in our saliva can be bad for our health because of how much we swallow each day
- How bleeding when you floss can be a sign of fertility difficulties down the road
- How the way you floss impacts the potential for gum disease
- How men’s gum health is as important as women’s in preconception and the impact of sperm motility and even erectile dysfunction
And much more!
It’s half an hour of power and given fertility is also a barometer for overall health, I welcome everyone to listen to this one to have renewed motivation for their oral health.
