Chewing and Your Bite

.

Digestion starts with chewing properly

.

.

.

.

When food enters your mouth and you start chewing, this stimulates the release of pancreatic hormones and triggers other digestive organs to produce saliva.

.

.

.

.

.

Saliva contains its own digestive enzymes, so the more you chew, the more time these enzymes have to work while the food is still in your mouth. This makes digesting less stressful for your stomach and small intestines.

Austrian physician Franz Xaver Mayr showed that people’s digestive systems deteriorate when they eat too fast, too much, too often and too unhealthy.

He developed a diagnostic and therapeutic system to help restore the health of the intestines and thus of the entire organism.

He was a great believer that poor nutrition is reflected in the state of the teeth and gums and that ‘death beg
.

.

Therefore I recommend you eat slowly and chew every single bite twenty two times!

.

.

.

.

Chewing gum fools your brain and digestive organs into believing you’re eating food. Your stomach, pancreas, and other digestive organs prepare themselves to process food.

As chewing gum is not food, the production of digestive enzymes isn’t required. Instead, the overflow of unused digestive enzymes could start ‘attacking’ the walls of your intestines.

The parts of your body that contribute to you being able to chew, breath, and swallow properly as well as keeping your posture stable involve your teeth, gums, jaws, supporting bones, muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons. For the whole system to function properly, every single part of this system must function properly.

It is important to understand what an important part of the skeletal system the teeth are. The way your top and bottom teeth fit together is crucial for the balance of your whole body and is a determining factor of the correct posture of your head.

.

.

.

.

.

If you have a skeletal posture imbalance your body will have created patterns that compensate either up from your feet  or down from the head.
.

.

For example if your jaw isn´t in the correct position it may cause your head to be slightly imbalanced on the neck. All the vertebrae and muscles that control them have to compensate. This can manifest as neck aches, head aches, back and shoulder pain, misaligned hips and uneven leg length.

Lazy Man´s Solution for Healthy Teeth

Have you ever dreamed of  a secret  to keep your teeth clean?

.

You are just about to discover your new  best friend!!

.

You won´t believe it!

.

It is  a   S U G A R

.

But not an ordinary one!

.

It´s name is      X Y L I T O L

Here are just a few benefits of XYLITOL:

.

.

.


  • Xylitol is a natural sweetener with only 40% of it being absorbed and metabolized into energy. Hence you get the sweetness, but only half of the caloric impact

.

  • Xylitol does not increase the insulin production

.

 

  • Xylitol´s key benefit is to “kill” biofilms

Have you ever experienced   this furry, sticky enamel feeling as you run your tongue alongside your teeth after drinking a Coke? You’re feeling  the effect of too much acidity plus sugar on your teeth. You feel the biofilm!

.

To quote an expert  on microbiology: “The biggest mistake we have made in understanding bacteria that cause disease in humans is to consider them in their individual, free-floating state, rather than as members of a community of bacteria that live within a complex system called a biofilm.”

.

Biofilms cover your teeth and oral cavitiy and other areas in your head (sinuses…). They are perfect hiding places for bacteria. Biofilms allow bacteria to grow. They are  resistant to the natural anti-microbial qualities of saliva and to toothpastes and mouthwashes.

.

Without this protective biofilm, bacteria can not stick to the enamel and release their damaging substances that can cause cavities

.

Our  modern high in sugar diets,  sugar-laden beverages and plenty of snacks are ideal breeding grounds for and sustaining of dental biofilms.

.

A typical “energy drink” contains 18 teaspoons of sugar which equals 72 grams of carbohydrates, or 300 calories!

.

  • Xylitol toothpaste, chewing gum, or pastilles all have an anti-biofilm effect.

.

  • Xylitol fights against gum disease (now the most common cause of tooth loss) because bacteria that initiate gum disease have no place to hide in the gum crevesses

.

  • Xylitol chewing gum makes your teeth  feel smooth and clean.

.

  • Xylitol reduces bad breath

.

  • Xylitol gum and pastilles is given as “dessert” in Finnish schools. They have seen a remarkable reduction in tooth decay.

.

  • Xylitol should be given to young children  to prevent  cavity formation in the first place

.

.

.

A word of caution:

.

.

.

If you still have mercury fillings you should use pastilles rather than chewing gum.

Chewing gum will release even more mercury from your fillings
