Toothpaste: changing the habits of a lifetime

Holistic San Diego Dentist Dr VinogradLet’s be totally honest here: humans are creatures of habit. We like to do the same things every day, in pretty much the same order as every other day, with the same group of people that we see every day. Changing someone’s routine can really knock them and make them confused, and changing the habits of a lifetime is certainly not easy. However, it is vitally important that many people around the world start to look at their habits more critically, because some of them could actually be doing them more harm than good. Take, for example, brushing your teeth.

Doesn’t seem like a very dangerous task, does it, but when you start to look at your toothpaste more closely, you will start to realise that you need to change your life, fast. This is because almost every store based toothpaste will contain ingredients such as diethanolamine, which can cause cancer, and triclosan, which is legally classed as a pesticide (a fact commonly espoused by holistic dental professionals). Those are the sorts of chemicals that you have been putting into your mouth quite happily, twice or even three times a day. Do you still feel happy about it?

We thought not – and that is why we want to encourage you to try making your own toothpaste at home. It is only by making your own toothpaste that you can really be sure that only good things have gone into it, and as only five ingredients are necessary for making your own toothpaste, the cost is almost nothing. You will find yourself saving money each month, as well as being assured that no more nasty chemicals are entering your body through brushing your teeth with horrible and dangerous toothpaste. Change the habits of a lifetime, and start to make your own toothpaste.
