We’ve talked before about the negative consequences phones can have on our health, but today we want to look at a specific danger they hold – to our teeth! We know that taking care of our oral health in natural ways, like oil pulling and using remineralizing toothpaste, and questioning common “routine” dental work like root canals can really help us keep our teeth healthier, longer. But there are also some defensive work that needs to be done to protect our teeth. So we have to ask ourselves: do cell phones cause tooth decay? And if so, what can we do about it?
“Have you ever been using your cell phone and felt/heard a weird sort of buzzing/whining sound? I have and it freaked me out. I felt a high pitched stinging feeling into my ear.
Having this first hand experience has caused me to really take a closer look at what impact cell phones could have on our oral and brain health.
I know, none of us wants to hear more about how cell phones could be causing trouble to our health. But, thankfully, you are one of us who really desires to look at the truth rather than stick your head in the sand and pretend the problem doesn’t exist.
The good news is toward the end of this article, we will place a new video tutorial from us that will show you a technique to help support clearing the head of any scrambling from cell phones.
The risk of cell phones
Setting aside the obvious risk of using a cell phone while driving (as a side note, did you realize that cell phone use is now the #1 cause of traffic accidents?), the issue we want to bring to light is the fact that all cell phones emit an electro magnetic frequency. It’s a sort of low level radiation.
Most of the PR you’ll hear on cell phones talk about the risks to brain health. Without diminishing this risk, we want to bring to the discussion the fact that a major component to the primary system our bodies use to protect our teeth from decay is under even heavier attack from cell phone radiation. I think of cell phone radiation like a low level radar device that’s definitely strong enough to scramble intercellular communication depending on how close to the phone the tissues are. More on cell phones soon…
The body’s main pathway to protect from decay
We have a system in the body which naturally cleans bad bugs out of the tiny tubes in each of our teeth. This system is actually the primary means our bodies have to maintain a cavity free mouth. It’s called ‘Dentinal Fluid Transport’ and it was first researched by Dr Ralph Steinman.
We’ve written extensively about dentinal fluid flow previously, in our article titled Why teeth decay (and how to stop it) as well as in our free video tutorial course titled ’the 5 steps to a healthy mouth’. So, if you’d like to dive more deeply into the mechanism and specifically the role of diet in this system, check out those free resources.”
