Oil Pulling for Oral Health

How Teeth Stay Healthy There are four layers to your tooth, listed from outer to inner: enamel (hardest and most mineralized), dentin (a protective, also mineralized layer), pulp (containing blood vessels and nerves), and cementum (covering the roots—also mineralized). Just like any other part of your body, teeth are living [...]

Weather-Related Migraines

I wrote here on the general naturopathic approach to treating migraines. As a rule, migraine predisposition tends to boil down to one of four things, or a combination of the following: food allergies, estrogen dominance, a backed-up liver, and/or cervical vertebral rotation or structural problems.

Turn On the Fat Cell Development Research started with tributylin (TBT), used to paint the underside of ships to prevent barnacles from growing [...]
