Did you know waking up with bad breath is a sign that something is off in your gut and oral microbiome with Hashimoto’s? Good gut health and overall physical health begins in the mouth. It’s the gateway to our digestive tract but most of us are not doing what’s best for our oral health. Today’s guest on Thyroid Strong Podcast, Trina Feller, is helping revolutionize the way we support our oral biome by deconstructing commonly accepted practices that most of us women with Hashimoto’s do every single day.
In addition to being a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, Trina Felber is the founder and creator of Primal Life Organics where she has an amazing product line, Primal Live, that is changing our daily habits and traditions surrounding oral health. She is on a mission to help reframe the way we understand how the outside world affects us internally, starting with the mouth. Trina has an tremendous ability to explain complicated medical issues in an easily digestible way that can help us all lead healthier lives.
Trina discusses how we can take better care of our oral health. Many of us do not realize how the toxicity of our environment can upset the microbiome in our mouths. Trina shares how our environment can weaken our teeth and what we can do to help prevent this.
Trina also shares how an unhealthy mouth can lead to many other types of health problems and what you can do to prevent them. Even fluoride can damage your oral and gut biome.
