Our Naturopathic training has reinforced for us the importance of the immune system to overall health. Our immune systems are located primarily in our gut, and the importance to a healthy immune system is clear. Inflammation is imbalance in the immune system and the enemy of health. The mouth, particularly periodontal disease is a common hotbed of inflammation, which is sensed everywhere in the body. Eating a good diet high in raw and unprocessed food along with “weeding, feeding and seeding of the gut” as our teacher, Dr Phil Mollica, has taught, is crucial to optimal health. As biologic dentists we understand the relationship that the mouth has to the whole body, especially the immune system, and that digestive health starts in your mouth.
Ozone is a powerful natural technology that aids our body’s immune system to control and eliminate inflammation. Our own white blood cells make ozone in their constant battle with pathogens. See our Articles on Ozone in Dentistry and Integrative Dentistry
