(Ep. 1) Mouth Health and It’s Connection to Your Immune System with Dr. Gerry Curatola

On this episode of The Beats with Kelly Kennedy, Biological Dentist Dr. Gerry Curatola joins me to talk about why health starts in the mouth and the importance of dental health. We discuss what factors block the immune system, including root canals, the relationship of mouth infection to systemic disease, and the change in people’s health when we began processing grains. Then, we detail why America is a sick nation and gum disease is an epidemic, as well as why you shouldn’t brush your teeth with charcoal, baking soda, xylitol, or herbal oils.

Promoting microbial homeostasis is incredibly important and Dr. Curatola is here to explain how we can make peace with our microbiome. He divulges his top 5 tips to improve your health, including ways to support your immune system before, during, and after dental treatment. Tune in for a must-hear quote on responding adaptively to environmental challenges and to learn why healing is not just biologic, it’s energetic.

“It’s not about the seed: the bacteria, it’s about the soil: the environment.”   – Dr. Gerry Curatola
