We believe in empowering women through education and storytelling and today we are going to dive into education side so for the month of June we are having a lot of male guests on in honor of Father's Day, and we are female centered podcast. But sometimes it's nice to get obviously different experts on and. Just dads to hear Dad's opinions and stories. We have Jamie Otis and Doug. They just had their baby, so Doug's going to be coming on and talking with us. very soon, which is super exciting in Chris? Siegfried is GONNA come on?

Be a really fun month so today. We're GONNA get into oral health, so Dr Mark is going to be joining us. He's known as ask the dentist on Instagram and I've been following him for. Quite a while and I love the. He posed just like different facts about. Like oral hygiene, and how it's connected to your whole body, it can. Good oral hygiene be indicators of even like heart, disease and things like that. He talks about He gives like different recipes recommends products and. This really dives into oral care and we have such a fun conversation today, so we get into all sorts of controversial things. So I want to address that first. But when you when you think about it. There is a lot of crazy stuff out there and again we we always say what whatever information you learn, you just WanNa. Take a move forward. You Never WanNa take a look back and be like. Oh I should have done this. I should have done that. It's just like okay like do I agree with that. Is that something that I want to apply in my family shade? Do More research into that Oh maybe I don't agree with this, so it's it's good to always question things to be learning in growing in in making improvements. 'CAUSE I. Know everyone out there. What just wants to be? The best wife, the best mom, the best friend that you can be for the loved ones in your life so. Before we get into today's podcasts I want to talk about a couple of things, so we do talk about fluoride, and there is some interesting research that has come out and. I mean there's back and forth on whether fluorides good for you or not, it has some benefits for the teeth, but. In jested it. Could you know maybe not be the best and? About sixty six percent of US residents have fluoride in the water thirty eight percent of Canada, but only three percent of Europe. And we kind of dive into a little bit of fluoride, but they're the study that I'm talking about. The came out. Whether you think for, it's good for you or bad for you. I've had this conversation with a lot of different people, but there is a study that talks about fluoride being potentially. Not great during pregnancy, fluoride exposure during pregnancy may be associated with adverse effects on children. On their intellectual development in Utero, indicating the possible need to reduce fluoride intake during pregnancy I'm going to link the study. In the show notes for you guys to take a look at. It's a study that was done in Canada. That followed five hundred. Or Six hundred and one mother child pairs. Recruited from six major cities and they. Followed the kids for years so from when? The. Were pregnant. And then to win, the kids were like three to four years old and doing some testing in showing that there's potential. Effects of exposure to fluoride so I'm going to link that study for you guys. Also another thing that I find is super interesting I'm not like anti fluoride in your toothpaste or anything like that. Since, I've been pregnant. Will actually in general I? Don't use fluoride, but. What's interesting those? If you look at the back of your toothpaste, so look at the toothpaste that you use look at the back of. And on there, it says keep out of reach of children under six years of age. If more than used for brushing is accidentally swallowed, get medical, help or contact poison control right away so. I don't know about you, but for me. It's kind of crazy to think we're putting this thing in our mouth and brushing our teeth, and if my kid accidentally swallows it or put too much toothpaste on swallows it. I have to contact poison control. What are these ingredients in here that? I need to be worried about so. Just take a deeper look into the ingredients that you're using. Especially when it comes to things, you're putting on your skin in your body if you're putting something on your skin or in your body that saying. Contact poison control right away. It's like. Is this really a product that I? WanNa be using and the product that I want around my kids. Another ingredient in toothpaste that a lot of people are talk about is `Solas so SOS is. Sodium? Lor I can never say it right, it's. Sodium Laurel soap soul fate. Or there's sodium Laura. and which are kind of two different versions of it? So that is actually an ingredient that's in a lot of cleaning products, because it causes things to foam up and things like that and. It might not be. You might be fine for some people, but for a lot of people I know a someone personally to me who kind of just had reoccurring canker sores and could not get rid of them and so. I asked. Is this ingredient in your toothpaste. And they said yes, and they switched toothpaste, and now it's been months, and they have not had a pinker sore. Because that is. Something that. Can Cause people can experience irritation in their mouth. Or. They can have allergic reactions. And if you have. Or your phone to them it can irritate them. It can even caused them. There are some rare side effects with it, but that's also like another ingredient to look into. Because it's like a cleaning agent that's in a lot of other things I mean it's in shampoos which a lot of companies now say. There's no no sulfates in it. Because people want that foaming factory, but there are companies that have. Made I mean I don't know about you have tried a lot of natural tooth as in some of them I'm like is. This doesn't like you feel cleaner when it's foaming up in your mouth, right? You're like okay. It's doing its job. I've gone down. The I tried natural deodorants forever, and then finally like I've been using native for a year and loved them, and I've done tons of different toothpastes and now there's probably three brands that I really really. Love one of them. I do use native. Hello, that brand is really good and there's one other one that I can't think of the name of right now, but that's just another ingredient that..
