What we choose to eat makes a huge impact on our health, good or bad. The good news is, we are in control. Now we just have to know what to choose. Even with a degree in Nutrition, I get confused by all of the info on diet out there. I loved reading The Dental Diet by Australian functional dentist, Steven Lin. I feel it really explained the effect nutrition has on our mouth and the overall break down of our health.
Here are a couple of takeaways about diet and key nutrients to start implementing today for a healthy smile and body. Dr Lin’s book is based largely upon the research of Dr. Weston Price. He recommends ancestral eating, which includes consuming unrefined, unprocessed, whole foods that have been around for thousands of years.

He also discussed three key nutrients that can be taken in supplement form for consistency and potency to help keep our teeth and gums healthy and our immune system functioning optimally.
Making food and supplement choices that will support your body’s health and help prevent illness is an empowering decision to make for you and your family. The more I understand why I am making a change the more likely I am to stick with it. I highly recommend Dr. Lin’s book if you want to take a deeper dive into the research. We are here to support you any way we can. Also, I have found some great supplements that incorporate his recommendations.
