Why You're Using the Wrong Toothpaste
Are you worried about fluoride in your toothpaste, but don’t quite understand the details? Is fluoride safe? Maybe you’ve read about issues with the fluoride, SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), or glycerine that might be lurking in your toothpaste. But you may not understand exactly why these chemicals are harmful.
Or maybe you’re just overwhelmed with your options in natural toothpaste, and don't know how to pick the best one!
Today I’m sharing a sneak peak at one of the interviews from my recent summit, the DIY Detox Summit! This talk is all about finding the best toothpaste to support your oral and gut health. I was so excited to interview my friend Trina Felber, a leading researcher in natural oral care and the creator of my favorite products for optimal dental health.
Here is what we cover in this interview:
1:30-- Why Trina’s daughter helped her became interested in researching oral health

14:11-- Why you might be struggling with sensitive teeth
