Homeopathy and Oral Health
Health starts with a good gut and the gut/brain connection. Disruption of good gut flora can lead to diseases. Gut health starts with the mouth and taking care of our oral cavity is primary to achieving our health goals.
Homeopathy has many options to offer when it comes to oral health. It can be a suitable adjunct to conventional medicine for management of many conditions since it is an affordable, effective, safe, nontoxic, natural system of medicine with no side effects.
