Dental health affects our bodies
Did you know that sick teeth can also make the whole organism sick?Teeth are not an individual isolated unit in our body, but very deeply and closely connected with the rest of the organism. Thus, diseased teeth and inflamed gums can harm the whole body, because our teeth are connected to the whole body through the nerves and blood vessels.
Bacteria and their toxins, in the case of long-lasting and untreated caries / periodontal disease, can travel throughout the body and cause various problems. Especially if the immune system is already weak, such as in sick or elderly people, the bacteria from the oral cavity can even more easily exert their harmful effects.
For more than 4000 years, Chinese medicine has assumed that each tooth is closely connected to a specific organ. Naturopathy has long discovered this principle for itself. Thus, when a particular tooth is damaged, the corresponding organ and body part also becomes increasingly stressed and can cause disease signals.
A list of diseases and problems that can be caused by bad teeth and periodontitis:
- Bladder and prostate infections
- heart attacks and strokes
- Premature births
- Lung and heart infections
- Headaches and migraines
- Erectile dysfunction
