Your dentist will tell you that the primary reason for regular brushing and flossing is to prevent cavities and maintain healthy gums, but what they often don’t tell you about is the direct link between poor gum health and cardiovascular health concerns. (1)

With more than 75 percent of adults in America having poor gum health, the motivation to maintain a healthy mouth goes way beyond cavities. (1) In this article, I will present the three Ayurvedic steps to maintaining a healthy mouth, and thus a healthy heart. Not surprisingly, Ayurveda, now backed by some exciting science, was way ahead of its time when it came to oral hygiene.

Let’s Dig In!

Researchers have known for some time that the same bacteria that are found in your mouth are also found inside arteries and on the valves of the heart. (1-3) These unhealthy bacteria are thought to find their way into the bloodstream through the gums, especially when you have bleeding gums. Flossing, and even chewing, can irritate gum tissue, cause minor bleeding and open the door for bacterial exposure and access to the heart and arteries. (3)

There is plenty of evidence linking common undesirable mouth bacteria, like Streptococcus mutans, to a host of health concerns which include arterial, heart, lung and blood sugar health. (2) The prevalence of encountering S. mutans is very high compared to other oral bacteria. In one report, S. mutans was found in 69 percent of heart valve cases, and 74 percent of arterial specimens. (3)

Understanding the link between the potential pathogenic bacteria in the mouth and your overall health cannot be understated. While dentists are adamant regarding oral hygiene, few of their preventative strategies actually reduce the population of S. mutans in the mouth.

The lymphatic system is considered one of the seven body tissues and the first to become compromised under stress. There is a stark contrast between how little attention is given to the lymph in the west and how highly it is revered in Ayurveda.

The Sanskrit word for lymph is rasa. This is also the word for taste, emotion, juice, nutrient fluid, melody, plasma, water, menses, semen, breast milk, satisfaction and love. In Sanskrit, the more meanings a word has, the broader its scope and the more important it is considered to be. The following are 7 different aspects of the body that are affected if the lymphatic system is neglected.

Acts of kindness, expressions of love, giving, caring, and being in the moment trigger the release of a health and longevity promoting hormone called oxytocin, which is linked to happiness and improved cancer survival rates. http://lifespa.com/what-ive-learned-from-cancer-survivors/ #survival #oxytocin #compassion #love #longevity #health #healthy #healthychoices #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #healthylife #ayurveda #ayurvedalife #ayurvedaeveryday #fact #facts #factoflife #science #lifehacks #lifehack
