What’s In Your Toothpaste

Hi, I’m Dr. Branyon with New Hope Unlimited. Thank you so much for joining with me for the next few minutes. And I hope I’m going to make it very interesting to where you’re going to want to go and research what I’m telling you so that you know the truth.

Patients are always wanting to know what kind of toothpaste to use because they know fluoride. Not too good for us. Well, I want to talk about toothpaste and not so much just about fluoride, people have no clue that there’s other things way worse than fluoride even. But before we get to that, I want to be able to tell you a little anatomy, and why it’s very important for you to research and find this out for yourself.

But did you know that well, for the first thing, when when a doctor is trying to help someone and they gotta get, they want to do an IV, that say they do an IV, that’s the quickest, fastest way to get anything into the bloodstream. When you do the IV, if someone’s going to be allergic to it, or if there’s going to be a problem. They’re going to know it right away. However, if they’re good, that’s, that’s okay, everything’s going in, and it’s going in a little faster, like antibiotics to help something really bad.

Do you know what is the second fastest way a lot of people’s gonna say, oh, a shot, or something in the mouth down the throat and all of that stuff? No, the very fast next second fastest is going to be up under the tongue. We have receptors up under the tongue, that when you want to get to that problem, and you don’t really want or need to do an IV, or can’t do an IV, under the tongue, it’s very important to remember.

So for instance, just to prove that point, doctors may write prescriptions for nitroglycerin tablets for their patients who have hard problems. Sometimes if they start having some problems, and they have pain and that sort of thing. They’ll take their nitroglycerin out of their pocket and put it under the tongue. Because it’s so quickly that nitroglycerin helps, and it can go into areas quicker and help the pain and put the heart back into perfect, great motion.

So that’s important to remember. It’s true, you have receptors under the tongue that take in a lot straight into the bloodstream. So now on to toothpaste. Well, there’s like I said, there’s fluoride in it. But that’s not what I’m going to talk about so much right now. Because like I said, most everybody knows that too much.

Fluoride is a problem.

It can actually cause neurological brain problems. Endocrine problems, there’s a whole list. And it’s studies after studies that talk about that. But here’s what I want to talk about that most people don’t think about. There is things like triclosan Diethanolamine (DEA), Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, there’s just a lot more. But here’s what I want you to really see.

I am not promoting. I’m not discouraging. I’m just telling you facts here.

It doesn’t matter what we have here. Let’s see, I’ve got a crest. Let’s see, I’ve got Colgate and another crest. I have bunches of things. But I had to go buy a new one. Just so that I can make extra sure. And so this is a new box. But here’s what I want you to look at from here on out. And you’ll see that it’s true.

Did you know that on all toothpaste, if you look at the box before you throw it away, doesn’t matter which one it is you are going to see and I put it in red, because I’m not sure with this phone if you’re going to be able to read it or not. So I’m just put it in red so that you will know where to find it.

And what this says,

“Keep out of reach of children. If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Centre right away.”

Now did you hear that?

If more than useful, brushing is swallowed, Get medical help and or contact a Poison Control Centre right away. Voice and red flags should coming off right now, red flags.

Poison Control Centre that sounds pretty drastic. Well, let me remind you, that might be talking about a child who just goes and, and likes the taste of their let stone or their dinosaur toothpaste or whatever, and swallows a lot more. But what you don’t realise is every time you brush your teeth, and believe me oral healthcare is very important.

But when you brush your teeth, whether it’s once a day, twice a day, three times a day, whatever you do, when you are brushing with this stuff that you might need to call a Poison Control Centre, every little bit is dissolving up under your tongue. It go, you can’t, you can’t control it, you if you’re going to brush, some of that is going to go up under your tongue.

So beware, just want you to think about that. Diethanolamine (DEA), that’s in all of our toothpaste, research it. It’s actually found in antifreeze and brake fluid. And actually, there was a study in 1998, that showed that it does cause cancer in animals, and it does harm our liver. And that’s, that’s a problem right there.

So also triclosan. That’s a big bad one, too. It causes thyroid problems. And it’s funny, the FDA actually banned the use of it in soap. Now, it’s, it’s still allowed in toothpaste. So I just want you to think about what you’re putting in your mouth, give you something to go research yourself.

And there is other other things you can use.

For instance, my biological dentist, he actually told me, he brushes his teeth, in baking soda and water and I gotta be careful, you don’t want it to be too rough because you could do some enamel sticking off your enamel.

And so you don’t want to do that. But baking soda and water and swishing out with peroxide, get it out, don’t swallow it. But that cleans and it prevents gum disease. But now if you are like most people, you just want some toothpaste.

You’ve got all kinds of different types you can do there’s Dr. Burt’s there’s, there’s just all kinds that you can find Tom’s, but with Tom’s Be very careful. You have to read it before you buy it. Because they have gone to putting fluoride in some of theirs. It’s all about marketing.

Then there’s just all kinds of natural toothpaste that don’t have. One of my favourites is Vicco because it’s got a lot of herbs in it. However, it’s hard to find now. So look at your options, but research and remember that what we put in our mouths, whether we’re eating it, cleaning our teeth, whatever is vital to our health, it’s cancer prevention, and a lot of other type problem prevention’s.

So I hope you understood what I’m trying to say. Just take it and research it and prove it to yourself.

Thank you for joining me. Remember, tell yourself you love yourself and tell at least three people a day you love them. It helps and we need that kind of compassion and love. Now more than ever.

Thanks for joining me. I’ll see you on the next one.
