Sometimes it can be difficult to tell how healthy we are. We may have a clean bill of health from our doctors, yet we still get upset stomaches, headaches, back pain, and other issues that suggest our bodies are not in complete harmony.
Plus, health can be relative to your perception of what a healthy diet and a healthy body should look like. Sometimes we allow our belief systems and perceptions to trump science and we ignore the way our bodies feel because we’re so engrained in our current paradigms. It’s time that we connect back with our bodies and listen to them so we can truly optimize our health, and surprisingly enough, our mouths provide us with the perfect opportunities to do so.
Many of us who are interested in health completely disregard our teeth and our mouths, and at what cost? We forget that the human body is a holistic and interconnected system, one that can only function optimally if everything is running smoothly. If your liver weren’t working properly, it would affect your entire body. If your heart stopped working, you’d be dead. Many of our organs and our body parts are crucial to our overall health and body function. Well, the same could be said about your mouth!
Your mouth literally acts as the gateway to your body; you can use it to either nourish your body with healthy foods or destroy it with toxins, unhealthy foods, and chemicals. Whatever you put in your mouth ends up affecting your entire body drastically. It’s not just about what you put in it, either.
A physically cleaner mouth isn’t just aesthetically pleasing, it’s crucial for your overall health, as it can play a key role in disease prevention. For example, poor oral health has been linked to inflammation, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and even cancer. Advanced gum disease can increase risk of fatal heart attacks by up to 10 times.
How to Properly Care for Your Oral Health
Contrary to popular belief, you do not want to be using chemical-filled toothpastes and mouthwashes, especially those that contain fluoride. Fluoride is a powerful neurotoxin that the North American dental industry claims is necessary for proper dental health.
In reality, it’s not even known to prevent the buildup of harmful oral bacteria; however, it is known to be toxic, with long-term ingestion linked to brain, heart, and bone issues. Fluoride is also an endocrine disruptor, and can affect your thyroid gland, pineal gland, and blood sugar levels.
It’s important that we differentiate between calcium fluoride and the chemical formulation of sodium fluoride that’s found in toothpaste as well. The latter is toxic and actually has a poison warning. Fluoride puts your oral microbiome at risk, and overexposure to fluoride is becoming a very real issue, as it’s in our toothpaste, our water, and more. Currently, 40% of adolescents in the U.S. have fluoride-damaged teeth, otherwise known as dental fluorosis.
You can get fluoride-free toothpaste here.
Conventional dentists also use a mixture of toxic substances to fill your teeth, commonly referred to as “silver fillings” in the North American dental industry, consisting primarily of mercury, silver, copper, and tin. The amalgam is actually 50% mercury, which passes through cell membranes, across your blood-brain barrier, and directly into your central nervous system, and can cause serious psychological, neurological, and immunological issues.
Every time you chew with a silver filling in your mouth, methylmercury is released, resulting in the suppression of your immune system. Metal fillings pose a grave threat to children in particular because their brains are still developing.
Many European countries have banned the use of these fillings and Canada has issued warnings discouraging their use among children and pregnant women. However, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Dental Association (ADA) still haven’t addressed this issue sufficiently. Check out this Dr. Mercola article regarding alternatives to mercury fillings and the many countries that use them.
Amalgams are associated with numerous different health problems, including fatigue, memory loss, tremors, problems with motor coordination, inability to concentrate, migraines, mood swings, anxiety, and autoimmune problems.
If you have dental amalgams in your mouth, don’t panic! You can get them removed; however, that may not be your best option, as the procedure itself poses health risks, too. Biological Dentist Dr. Curatola suggests that you should consider removing your amalgams if:
1. You have more than eight mercury fillings
2. You grind your teeth
3. You consume acidic foods frequently
4. You drink soda on a regular basis
These practices all raise the risk of mercury being released from your fillings, meaning that you’re at an increased risk of experiencing health issues related to mercury toxicity.
Dr. Mercola interviewed Dr. Curatola on the importance of oral health, which you can watch below:
Risks of Poor Dental Health
More than 500 species of bacteria can be found in the oral cavity of a healthy mouth, and they can be beneficial or harmful for the health of your mouth. The “good” bacteria, also referred to as probiotics, can aid in digestion, synthesize vitamins, and protect our mouths from the “bad” bacteria. The bad bacteria are often what cause disease and various mouth-related health problems such as bad breath, gingivitis, periodontitis, cavities, and plaque build-up.
Taking note of the bacteria and toxin levels in our mouths isn’t just crucial for the health of our mouths, but our entire bodies. Infections and bacterial overgrowth in the mouth can affect the whole body, moving throughout it and causing other health problems such as heart disease, bacterial pneumonia, diabetes, and low birth weight.
Your mouth is also extremely sensitive and if you use harsh substances to treat any health issues within your mouth, it’s difficult to get that “good” bacteria back. You can’t simply take a probiotic and expect it to return, as probiotics don’t actually work in the oral cavity.
Biological Dentist Dr. Curatola explains:
I have been tooting the horn about getting out of the ‘pesticide business.’ I’m also speaking about natural pesticides. Not just triclosan, clorhexidin and those synthetic types, but also tea tree oil, tulsi oil, oregano oil and other antimicrobial oils that … have a potent disturbing effect on the oral microbiome.
In the mouth, you don’t want to have a ‘scorched earth policy,’ nuking all bacteria and hoping the good bugs come back … [G]ood bugs basically have a harder chance of setting up a healthy-balanced microbiome when you disturb them, denature them, or dehydrate them with alcohol-based products.
One study proved that poor dental health can actually result in endocarditis, an infection of the inner lining of your heart. This can happen when germs and bacteria from your mouth spread throughout your bloodstream and attach themselves to damaged areas of your heart.
Another study looked at brain samples from ten patients without dementia and compared them to ten patients with dementia. The research suggested that there was a link between dementia and chronic periodontal (gum) disease as well as Alzheimer’s.
Dr. Josef Issels, MD, a well-known cancer specialist, asks all of his cancer patients to have their dead teeth removed. In his book Cancer: A Second Opinion, he explains his methods for healing cancer and the link the mouth has to the disease. Dr. Issels has worked with 16,000 cancer patients over the course of 40 years and approximately 90% of his patients had multiple dead teeth in their mouths. He discusses in his book and provides compelling evidence on the link dead teeth have to cancer, as he argues the harmful toxins they release can cause the disease.
How Our Mouths Communicate Our Overall Health
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the tongue is a microcosm of the entire body and will reflect its excesses and deficiencies. The shape, colour, coating, and texture of the tongue can indicate digestive issues and body imbalances.
Tongue areas correspond to internal organs in Chinese Medicine; much like reflexology, different parts of the tongue correspond to different organs. As a mirror of the body’s digestive system, the tongue can reflect the toxicity level in the gut, show potential food sensitivities or a weak digestion, point to malabsorption of nutrients, and reveal the health of other organs in the body.
This diagram illustrates which organs relate to certain areas of the tongue:
Alternatively, the colour and shape of your tongue can depict emotional and physical ailments. Check out this diagram that shows you how your tongue can communicate the overall health of your body:
You can read more about this in our CE article:
When you really think about it, our mouths are the windows into our health. They affect our bodies so much, yet they’re these small little things that so many of us don’t focus on keeping healthy. It’s actually sort of beautiful when you think about how the mechanics of our bodies mirror our outer realities.
Our cells and our organs all work in unison together to allow our bodies to operate perfectly. It’s an incredibly complex structure that only works if everything is operating perfectly and connectively. Each and every tiny part affects the operations of the whole. This is similar to reality, in that every human being plays a crucial and fundamental role on Earth, and everyone impacts one another due to the collective consciousness and the ripple effect.
Point being, every part of your body needs to be cared for in order to function optimally, in the same way that every human being affects the planet and the collective. If you don’t have a healthy mouth, your entire body may not be “healthy.” If you don’t have happy, high vibrational citizens, then this will affect all of society and the entire collective consciousness in general.
“Conditions in the mouth have a profound potential to reflect and influence the health of the whole person. Disruptions to the flow of energy through the mouth may affect remote regions of the body and disruptions elsewhere may manifest in the mouth. These relationships are a result of communication between the Acupuncture Meridians and the Teeth.”

Will Cyrptocurrencies Disrupt Central Banking? US Congress Meets To Discuss
- The Facts:
Witnesses are testifying at a House Financiancial Services subcommittee on whether the government should consider cryptocurrencies as money and their uses. This could be a monumental moment in central banking disruption.
- Reflect On:
Are you aware of how fiat currency currently works? Are you aware of what the central banking system is? Cryptocurrency has the potential to be a bridge that disrupts these enslaving systems and brings power back to people.
The buzz about cryptocurrencies seems to be as volatile as cryptocurrencies themselves, there is always a ‘war for our perception’ when it comes to something so threatening to the current financial system, and the way we’ve been doing things for years with regards to finance. Everybody from billionaires like tech investor Tim Draper, to ex-Facebook executive Chamath Palipitaya, to entertainers like Akon and more, have all urged the masses to look into Bitcoin, the current dominant cryptocurrency.
What makes cryptocurrencies so popular is not their potential to make a lot of money, but, from a financial perspective, it’s simply another option from “autocratic regimes and baking infrastructure that we know is corrosive to how the world needs to work properly.” Said Palipitaya about cryptocurrency a couple of years ago. “You cannot have Central Banks infinitely printing currency, you cannot have folks with misguided and misdirected monetary and fiscal policy…It’s a con game.”
Anything that can disrupt modern day banking is huge, given that this is the control hub of the Deep State and the ‘Cabal’ that seems to have its tentacles spread over all aspects of humanity, preventing solutions from being implemented quicker. Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund has even cautioned that cryptocurrencies could displace central banks and conventional banking in the long term.
Clearly a good thing for us, but not the financial elite who continue to benefit from a system that only serves a select few.
Cryptocurrencies can change this.
It’s About Disrupting Old Outdated Ways
Whether you know much about cryptocurrencies, and Bitcoin or not, know that it threatens something so central, and something that has been holding humanity back in many ways for a long time. Banking.
Any disruption to our current banking system is a great leap forward, in any form, but ultimately, any type of currency with any type of value is not really needed here on planet Earth. But that’s a transition to take place over a period of multiple years if we choose to head the right direction as a collective.
This is why it would not be a surprise to see some big-time restrictions and regulation put on cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, in the United States and other parts of the world. There already has been, but at this point, Bitcoin doesn’t really seem like it can be stopped and looks like something that has a bright future, according to many. That being said, a lot of mainstream media and some big-time popular financial figures have constantly bashed and criticized it.
“Bitcoin is money outside of government, controlled by the people who become their own sovereignty. Bitcoin will do the nation-state what the printing press did to the church…The use-case as stateless money drives adoption because it’s universally appealing and fills a void every human being feels in their soul: to be free.” – Max Kieser (source)
The thing is, can the government really do anything about cryptocurrency? The story goes that it was created without their permission, it went past the gatekeepers, are they really needed anymore? Is cryptocurrency beyond their reach? Do they have no choice but to perhaps join in and participate somehow?
Important questions… While some feel there can be a backdoor into some popular cryptocurrencies, it’s important to note that either way, people are beginning to learn about central banking and how enslaving the current system truly is.
Could It Be Used Worldwide Soon?
Right now, witnesses are testifying at a House Financiancial Services subcommittee on whether the government should consider cryptocurrencies as money and their uses.
Rodney Garratt, a professor of economics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, claimed that the banks have to decide whether they want “to withdraw completely from providing a payment device for the general public,” or whether they prefer to adopt a digital alternative. Which, in turn, could be “some form of crypto.”
This seems to suggest some are pushing for the mainstream world to create a competitor to Bitcoin? If they wanted to make a cryptocurrency popular, the ‘gatekeepers’ and the Deep State no doubt could.
An article written for Cointelegraph explains:
Alex Pollock, senior fellow at the R Street Institute, argued that “to have a central bank digital currency is one of the worst financial ideas of recent times, but still it’s quite conceivable…” Pollock said that central bank digital currencies would only increase the size, role, and power of the bank, adding that the Federal Reserve adopting a CBDC would result in it become the “overwhelming credit allocator of the U.S. economic and financial system.”
The hearing includes a lot of people, not just academics, but engineers, entrepreneurs and more from the industry, one that seems to be growing rapidly with more adoption of cryptocurrencies.
Again, this is great that the financial world is being shaken up, and there is a big discussion to be had, but nothing can justify what we have today remains the same. Things are changing, and as always, heavy criticism and harsh resistance follow.
The Need For A Use Case
You hear a lot about new coins popping up, with ICO’s that reach within the millions. People buy in banking on the rise of the coin based on emotion alone. But what use does the new coin truly have? Or simply, is the coin tied to service, value or commodity of sorts that may suggest a greater value than simply emotion?
For example, Bitcoin is an old outdated version of cryptocurrencies already. What?! Yes. It’s payment processing times are slow, making it very difficult to be used as a means for everyday payment. It’s blockchain simply can’t scale to manage this sort of task. It also does not have any use case or service tied to it that makes it useful beyond being held as an investment. In other words, the only thing holding up Bitcoin’s value is emotion.
Whereas, if you look at a new crypto and new blockchain called TimiCoin (also TimiHealth and TimiDNA), you would find that not only is their blockchain robust enough to service many transactions at a time, but there is a powerful ‘use-case’ tied to the token that creates a ton of value. The use-case is simple: the Timi ecosystem allows people to access their health records instantly – and monetize their own data! This, instead of having corporations keep hold of your records, and having them sold to third parties to be monetized, where you get nothing, with your records, your data, you should be able to monetize it.
Timicoin is a cryptocurrency for the people. It allows them to take power back from corporations on something important and gives you the power to monetize.
Cryptocurrency, in general, has the potential to empower the people by keeping control out of the hands of government and corporations.
We recognize there have been doubts, and that crypto is simply part of an ‘elite‘ plan, but ultimately, we need a change in how we deal in currency, and this has the makings of it. There are both positive and negative tones coming out of this hearing, and that’s to be expected.
8 Incredible Reasons Witch Hazel Should Be Added To Your Medicine Cabinet
- The Facts:
There are many harmful chemicals lurking in most personal care products. There are enough natural alternatives out there, such as witch hazel that could eliminate your need to use these chemical-containing products at all.
- Reflect On:
How important is it for you to limit the number of harmful chemicals that you, your family and the environment are exposed to?
Witch Hazel is an ancient Native American remedy for a wide variety of ailments and people are starting to see why. Generally, in stores, we see witch hazel available in a clear liquid form in a bottle, but prior to that, it starts off as a shrub with yellow flowers.
There are two ways of getting the extract from the witch hazel bark, one as a distillation, this is commonly found in stores and generally has alcohol added to act as a preservative, or as a decoction. Many herbalists agree that the decoction method is superior because it makes a more concentrated version which means higher levels of tannins, which is the component that gives witch hazel its superior astringent properties. The distilled version is more shelf-stable, but just be aware of the alcohol that’s added, as some are sensitive to this.
Witch hazel can typically be used in the place of alcohol for treatment of many different skin irritations. It is recognized worldwide as a natural cleanser and toner, it’s clear that this product is absolutely great for the skin, so what benefits does it provide?
1. Clear Up Acne
A study, which was published in the Journal of Aesthetic and Clinical Dermatology showed that Witch Hazel was one of the most effective acne treatments out of 52 tested products.
This liquid can slow bacterial growth, speed up healing of scabs and reduce inflammation, redness, oil production and even the development of blackheads and whiteheads.
2. Protect From Skin Cancer
A study that was published in Chemical Research in Toxicology found that the polyphenols and tannins found naturally in witch hazel reduced the number of free radicals and stopped the growth of melanoma cells.
3. Cleanse Hair & Hydrate Dry Scalp
Witch Hazel is a common ingredient in many homemade, all-natural shampoos. It can reduce oil build up on the hair, which could leave your hair clean, shiny and potentially add more volume.
According to this study, witch hazel was able to reduce symptoms of a dry, itchy and irritated scalp.
4. Reduce Degenerative Effects Of The Skin
Because of the anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties of witch hazel, it can help to protect collagen and the skin’s elasticity. This provides a super cheap alternative to many of the expensive wrinkle creams, cleansers and toners out there. Try mixing Witch Hazel with vitamin E oil and some herbs or flowers such as rose or lavender for your very own home-made anti-aging serum.
5. A Useful Addition To Homemade Baby Wipes
If you are someone who is crafty, economical and practical then the idea of homemade baby wipes might be exciting for you. Witch Hazel is a perfectly safe ingredient to use in homemade wipes to wipe your babies bum clean. This is a great alternative to whatever chemicals may be lurking in those store-bought wipes. Making your own is also much better for the environment as homemade wipes don’t come packed in plastic.
6. Heal Stretch Marks?
Some claim that a witch hazel spray applied directly onto stretch marks once a day can help to eliminate the appearance of stretch marks. It’s so simple so at least it’s worth a try, considering it assists with inflammation and scarring this only makes sense.
7. Itch Remedy
Witch Hazel can be an excellent remedy for anything from bug bites, to eczema to chickenpox and poison ivy. You can put some in a spray bottle and add a few drops of lavender essential oil and find relief next time you or your children have an itch that scratching won’t help.
8. Heal Mouth Sores & Freshen Breath
Canker sores, bit lip or cheek? Simply swish some witch hazel around your mouth to help reduce irritation. This is also a great natural mouthwash that can help freshen breath. You can add a drop or peppermint essential oil for a more powerful fresh feeling, just be careful not to swallow.
All Natural Products, All The Way
With so many all-natural alternatives to our everyday products, one might begin to wonder why we even use mainstream store-bought products that are laden with chemicals and preservatives in the first place? It seems that the plant kingdom has a remedy for almost anything that ails us; it’s just that a lot of this knowledge has been lost and unfortunately it’s not a focal point for most manufacturers. Aside from countless recipes for natural homemade personal care and cleaning products online, some retailers are starting to understand our desire to eliminate chemicals from our lives and offer many alternatives, which are generally found at health food stores.
Study Reveals Popular Vaccine “May Kill More Children From Other Causes Than It Saves”
- The Facts:
Multiple studies have shown and emphasized that the DTP vaccine may actually kill more children than it protects from DTP. This is one of the latest to show it, known as the Mogensen study.
- Reflect On:
Reflect on the fact that this information is never really brought up within the mainstream medical community. All it takes is one CDC study to "debunk" several studies that show opposite results. What's really going on here? Is our health a priority?
There are numerous vaccine safety issues. It can boggle your mind how health authorities and pharmaceutical companies can deem them to be completely safe, necessary, and responsible for saving millions of lives. When people hear this, they usually just believe it without ever looking into it and doing their research, and don’t realize they are only presented with one side of the story. If you have 100 studies raising an issue with a vaccine, all it takes is one study from the CDC to say it’s safe, and that’s the research medical associations dish out to doctors as well as medical schools. After all, the pharmaceutical companies are the ones paying for the whole shebang; what they say, goes.
“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue.” – Richard Horton, current Editor-in-chief of The Lancet
One example would be the vaccine ingredients themselves. Heavy metals, like aluminum and mercury, have been added to vaccines for approximately 100 years without any appropriate safety testing. Numerous studies point this out. You can access some of those studies and see some examples here.
Fast forward to 2017: researchers have now identified, in animal models, that the aluminum from a vaccine does not exit the body like aluminum from, let’s say, our food; it actually stays in the body, travels to distant organs and eventually ends up in the brain. Not only that, researchers also found some of the highest brain aluminum content ever measured in autopsies of the brains of people who were autistic.
You can read more about that and access those studies in the articles linked below:
It is simply no longer possible to believe…or to rely on the judgement of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine. – Dr. Marcia Angell
Questioning Vaccine Safety Is Suppressed
With all of these issues, why is there such a harsh reaction to questioning vaccine safety? Why can’t a doctor or professor keep their job if they question vaccine safety? Isn’t science about openly questioning? The day we stop questioning, when there are clearly multiple concerns and questions to be asked and addressed, is the day we abandon the possibility of doing real science.
“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.” – Arnold Seymour Relman (1923-2014), Harvard professor of medicine and former Editor in Chief of The New England Medical Journal (source)
The issue here is, vaccines are marketed as completely safe, and anybody who questions vaccines is made out to look crazy, dumb, or unscientific. This couldn’t’ be further from the truth, and there are a number of valid reasons why parents should not be forced to vaccinate their child.
The DTP Vaccine
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has long been a vocal critic of the lack of scientifically-based vaccine testing:
The public in both poor and rich countries has a right to scientifically-based evidence that international vaccine programs are as safe as possible and that they have been thoroughly safety-tested. The best metrics for measuring safety are studies comparing health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated cohorts. Yet, both the CDC and the WHO have aggressively discouraged the pursuit of such studies. – RFK Jr.
He wrote an article that goes into more detail about the DTP vaccine, it’s history, and what the current research suggests. It is becoming difficult to avoid the conclusion that the DTP vaccine is causing more harm than good.
In the video below, I go into more detail about the DTP vaccine. HERE is the study I reference in the video.
