Oral Health and Heart Connection

Today, I want to share with you a pearl of wisdom I learned sometime along my Lyme journey.

Did you know studies show that how well you take care of your teeth is an indicator for how healthy your heart is? Here’s a few youtube clips to explain it more, the second one is a little dry, but gives really good information 🙂

 

This is so important to understand that we can help our bodies to function at their best when our oral hygiene is impeccable. The best part is it is never too late to start taking care of your teeth and gums!

For Lymies, this is super important because we already have a lot of inflammation issues to deal with. Taking care of your teeth isn’t a guarantee that you won’t develop heart issues in the future, but it is a boost for your body to keep it going strong! Fascinating, right?!
