    dry lips are secondary to high cortisol shunting and lowered IgA.

    Soul, too. My cortisol is rather lowish, can't find my IgA labs but I have some from years ago I think, and my lips are dry and peeling.

    My daughter has that right now, the dry lips. Are we blood type A's?

    Not me. I've had dry lips since I was a pre-teen. Actually, they have gotten better, I don't have to apply something every hour like I used to.

    nope, 0 over here (carnivore :cool: or maybe fishyvore?)



    My dry lips came about after starting leptin rx. I blamed it on skiing and the cold/wind during the winter. Well, ski season is long over and I still have to baby them and scrub them with a toothbrush every day.

    So thinking about gut flora so much lately.... where does it start? In our stomachs? I've been wondering.... don't we have a "mouth flora" as well? And what happens to that if we use stuff like hydrogen peroxide mouthwash, essential oils, antibacterial toothpastes, or even alcohol based mouthwashes? Are we doing more damage than good?



    I guess I know the answer for the alcohol based mouthwashes... but the other stuff that's for oral hygiene - lots of it is antibacterial, no? Does that disrupt the flora in the mouth in a bad way?

    mouthwash is a no no........oral flora is hugely important.

    my mouth feels better without it... hydrogen peroxide might be ok, don't know. I've been thinking about this for a while now..... as hard as I am working on restoring my gut flora, I don't want to wipe it out a few times a day where it starts..... in my mouth. I imagine it would disturb the flora. I used to be a Listerine person and I would still love to use it. Love the fresh feeling. Oh well. Bye-bye. My pure powder probiotic supplement suggests putting a little scoop on your tongue before you go to bed to restore a natural, healthy populated flora in your mouth.



    Chew on the anti-bacterial plants instead :) Parsley is good. Anything green really.

    so here's the real question - what does Jack clean his teeth with? a tooth pick and some Coconut oil?



    I have noticed since upping my K2 to the max dosage -the back of my teeth feel cleaner...



    We're working on switching to flouride free - but don't like the stuff we bought - it tastes weird - but I've never liked how sweet most toothpaste etc is in general...

    there's this theory that the glycerine in toothpastes will coat your teeth and prevent them from remineralizing.... no idea if there's anything to it but my teeth cleaning supplies are free of it

    I use baking soda and sea salt, with a bit of ground clove. Wet the brush, touch it to the powder, and have at it.

    I use tooth soap sometimes a bit of baking soda. Burt's Bee has a nice tooth paste that has very clean ingredients. I find baking soda too abrasive to use every day.

    I use toms. My teeth always feel clean. I used to brush 3x a day. Now i eat virtually no carbs and brush only once.

    The dentist in this interview sounded pretty knowledgeable:



    http://www.blogtalkradio.com/drloradio/2012/01/18/holistic-dentistry-with-dr-stephen-lawrence



    He mentions a toothpaste that is the only one he says he recommends. I can't remember the brand name, but I think it's only available in the U.S. and not that easily there. Maybe through Amazon?



    Some other interesting things on teeth cleaning. He mentions some kind of water-lance.



    There are some herbs that it seems will selectively kill the bacteria that are responsible for gum disease and cavities without killing off harmless bacteria.
