(NaturalHealth365) You may have heard the old adage that you are what you eat. While that may hold some truth, Dr. Josh Axe says it would be more accurate to say that you are what you digest.

If you aren’t digesting properly, Dr. Axe, explains, you aren’t going to absorb any of the vitamins and nutrients in your diet, no matter how healthy your food choices. Furthermore, your body’s ability to digest food properly is linked to having a healthy microorganism population – or microbiome – in both your gut and your mouth.

Leaky gut leads to tooth decay and a toxic bloodstream

What is leaky gut? The term refers to a condition in which the pores in the small intestine wall become enlarged, allowing things like undigested food particles and toxins to flow freely through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream. Since these items are not naturally found in the blood, the body’s immune system goes into attack mode. This can put your health at risk for a number of conditions and diseases.

The small intestine is a vital part of the digestive system because most of the vitamins and minerals in the foods you eat are absorbed there. In healthy individuals not suffering from leaky gut syndrome, the small intestine contains microscopic pores that only allow nutrients to pass through to the bloodstream, but not toxins and large undigested food particles.

Dr. Axe says that while there are a lot of myths swirling around as to what causes tooth decay, he believes leaky gut syndrome is the most likely culprit. “In fact, there are a number of health issues that people are struggling with today. And they don’t realize that it’s connected to their microbiome in their gut and in their mouth,” he says.

But leaky gut syndrome isn’t the only complication between unhealthy dental microbiome and health risks. Dr. Axe says in addition to gut health, medical literature also shows a link between unhealthy dental microbiome and heart disease, obesity and other major health risks.

“People ignore the health of their mouth, how important it is and how the bacteria found in your mouth is so important for your overall wellbeing,” said Dr. Axe.

Understanding the link between oral and intestinal health

Dr. Axe’s presentation will examine the link between an unhealthy oral dental microbiome and a host of ailments. His presentation will cover:

  • The underlying reasons behind the epidemic rise of tooth decay
  • The most dangerous foods that trigger leaky gut
  • Foods, nutrients and supplements to improve digestion, immunity and oral health
