Mouth Hygiene

I thought this would be a good area to look into - I see various information on the web but can't really work out what is myth and what is evidence based. I know mouths and teeth are usually the domain of dentists rather than doctors, but being the start of the digestive tract, surely the mouth must be interconnected with all the other systems of the body. What is good mouth hygiene? Should we be using mouthwashes? On the one hand one component of mouthwash is said to destroy coronavirus (this statement is not fact checked!!) but on the other hand surely mouthwash has a bad effect on the mouth microbiome. I recently saw mouth probiotics for sale - how do these work if they are swallowed as pills? Are some toothpastes bad for the mouth microbiome (eg titanium dioxide components)? Does coconut oil mouth rinsing have any merit? Bad breath is common and has knock on effects socially Good teeth give people confidence to smile and has positive social effects Good saliva aids digestion. Chewing is important for jaw formation. Bad bacteria in the mouth easily track to other parts of the body - leading to heart problems, pneumonia etc Does brushing 2x per day do the cleaning job? Can eating an apple at the end of a meal do as good a job? There are lots of unanswered questions in this area Thank you - have recently found your podcasts and have been mega bingeing!! Have found lots of them so helpful.


I have done Zoe and found wearing a CGM really helpful. Like you, I want to be able to wear one for a couple of weeks every 4-6mths to check what’s going on. I can’t seem to buy a Libre3 - could you tell me which one you get please?

AMA #2

Hey, just wondering if there has been a second "Ask Me Anything" episode published. If so, how can I access it. Thank you.

How do I stick with my health goals?

Hi there, new member here. Your podcast is really insightful and has shed a new light for me. I am aiming to live a healthier and active life. I know what I should do, but I can't seem to create realistic goals and stick with them, especially when it comes to exercising and dieting. Any tips or tricks to help would be much appreciated.
