Should You UseToothpaste With Fluoride? Knowledge is Power

I recently was questioned by one of my sons as to why we don’t use toothpaste with fluoride.  He said, “I know you have told me it’s not good, but why isn’t it”?  Great question and a great wake-up call for me.  As my sons are all young adults now, they are fully capable of making their own health decisions once armed with the knowledge.  So, I pulled out my health file and shared a couple of articles and references with him and said – you get to choose whether you want a fluoride toothpaste or not. Here is a link to the Fluoride Network if you would like more information.

When we are ready to make important decisions, we usually open up to learn more about the area of concern or ask a trusted advisor so that we make educated choices.  When it comes to our health – there are many answers and rightly so because everyone has their own take on a particular topic.  The bottom line comes down to doing our homework and trusting our own inner guidance on what feels right for us.  No one can know our body, mind and spirit better than we do – we just need to re-educate our habits to take the responsibility and not hand our power over to others.

I thought I would take this opportunity to share a few websites and articles here with those of you who may, like me want to know more about what we take into our bodies.  These are only ones that I feel are top priority to share with my young adults. Please click on the links for more information.

Our bodies require a lot of energy to detox from environmental factors. We can make changes that will support our bodies’ ability to stay strong if we know more about the decisions we are making. One of the reasons that I added the biophoton light therapy to my offerings is in response to the symptoms my clients reveal to me in my practice.  I continue to learn more every day which is great!  In that light, if you have a favourite tip that you would like to share here, please add it in the comments section below. Don’t forget to leave a link back to your own blog if you have one, via the commentluv feature here on my site.

To our health, happiness and expansion of knowledge! Cheers.

      Hi Heidi – great question and as you may have found looking for a natural deodorant, you need to try a few to find the one that appeals to your taste. In our house – I use the Neem Wintergreen and my family prefers Dr. Ken’s brand or Jason’s brand. You can get them at The Superstore natural section or Nature’s Emporium or Ambrosia in this area. Cheers!

    Hi Karen, I absolutely agree that we should not use toothpaste with fluoride. I mean it’s just not worth the risk. I’ve read things like they are not as harmful in adults as they are in children. I’ve included the link here as well. What do you think?
    Cheers!

      Hi Rabby – thanks for your response. The fact that adult bodies are more prepared to handle the toxic flouride to me is not a good enough reason to feel safe using it. We get enough flouride in our life with municipal water that if we have the ability to limit our use in other areas, why wouldn’t we? As in anything our bodies can manage moderation of toxins so let’s make the most harmonious choices we can for it’s overall well being!
