The National Library of Medicine lists over 10,000 studies linking the mouth to just 5 conditions: cardiovascular disease, sleep apnea, pregnancy complications, diabetes, and cancer. 137,000 studies relate the same 5 conditions to diet.

The mouth plays a role in the leading causes of death in the US in 2010 (1):

  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Chronic lung disease
  • Stroke
  • Accidents
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Diabetes

Having a Holistic mouth is a key player in the prevention and reversal of the above list of leading causes of death.

The new science of Oral-Systemic Links connects the mouth with Whole Health:

  • Dirty teeth and inflamed gums are associated with heart disease and stroke (2)
  • Severe sleep apnea patients is 4.8 times more likely to die of cancer (3)
  • Regular snorers have 2.25 X the risk of getting diabetes (4)
  • Oral Sleep Appliance can lower high blood pressure 13/8 naturally in 8 weeks (5)
  • Moderate-sever sleep apnea patients have 15 X the risk of traffic accidents (6)
  • Alzheimer’s subjects have a significantly higher level of antibodies and inflammatory molecules associated with periodontal disease compared to healthy people (7)

Your health is what you eat and how well you sleep, whether you relax and/or exercise.
