But, what if we flipped the paradigm? What if we thought about dental health as the foundation for our physical health as a whole?
Dr. Steven Lin, an experienced dentist and the world’s first dental nutritionist, has analyzed our ancestral traditions, epigenetics, gut health, and the microbiome in order to develop food-based principles for a literal top-down holistic health approach. He's compiled these principles in his book, The Dental Diet: The Surprising Link between Your Teeth, Real Food, and Life-Changing Natural Health.
Merging dental and nutritional science, Dr. Lin lays out the dietary program that can help ensure you won’t need dental fillings or cholesterol medications -- and give you the resources to raise kids who develop naturally straight teeth. With our mouth as the gatekeeper of our gut, keeping our oral microbiome balanced will create a healthy body through a healthy mouth.
Listen as Dr. Lin joins Dr. Friedman to explain more about this connection.
