Good health begins in the mouth. It’s the gateway to our insides, but most of us are not doing what’s best for our oral health. Today’s guest is helping to revolutionize the way we support our oral biome by deconstructing commonly accepted practices that most of us do every single day.
In addition to being a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, Trina Felber is the founder and creator of Primal Life Organics where she has an amazing product line that is changing our typical habits and traditions surrounding oral health. She is on a mission to help reframe the way we understand how the outside world affects us internally, starting with the mouth. Trina has an amazing ability to explain complicated medical issues in an approachable way that can help us all lead healthier lives.
I sit down with Trina to discuss her findings of how we can better take care of our oral health. Many of us might not realize how the toxicity of our environment can our upset the biome in our mouths. Trina shares many ways that our environment can weaken our teeth and what we can do to help prevent this.
Trina also explains how an unhealthy mouth can lead to many other types of health problems and what you can do to prevent them. Even fluoride can damage your oral biome. She explains the role that saliva plays in keeping our mouths in balance and how her revolutionary line of oral health products can play a role too.
