Toothpaste & Mouthwashes

Dental care
Healthy smiles

Proper dental hygiene is one important step to living a healthy life.


Unfortunately most toothpastes contain fluoride. Fluoride is toxic, which is why you will see a poison control warning on the box. While conscientious parents try to teach their children not to swallow after brushing their teeth the truth is that all of us ingest some toothpaste after each brushing. Additionally, the area under our tongues absorb chemicals. Why put a toxic product in your mouth, or your child's mouth, when its contents are added to your body?


Choosing a natural toothpaste means not subjecting your body to potentially harmful chemicals. We can help you find such toothpastes, as well as one for children that is healthy, and tastes good!  Such as ones that users claim reduce gum sensitivities and improve gum health.


We all appreciate clean mouths. Bad breath is not only a social turn-off, those living organisms responsible for that smell may not be good for your health. Most mouthwashes kill germs and bacteria through the use of alcohol. The U.S. National Cancer Institute determined that mouthwashes with more than 25% alcohol content lead to a 60% - 90% heightened risk of developing mouth, tongue and throat cancers. It's likely better to use mouthwashes with all natural ingredients and no alcohol.


Just ask us for an alternative that works with your body, not against it, that kills bad breath without killing helpful organisms. See a product description of the mouthwash at the bottom of the Solutions page.



Deodorants often contain harmful chemicals and talcum powder. Read more about this under the title of "Chemicals", lower on this page.


Perfumes and Colognes

Made with crude oil!
Synthetic perfume

Perfumes and colognes smell wonderful! Sadly, most sold today are manufacturered using synthetic oils which are often toxic to human and animal health. This is why hospitals and other public places have banned them.


For thousands of years purely planet-derived oils have been the only perfumes available. These not only smell wonderful, people use them to improve their health! Today these oils are called "essential oils."


Such oils are now used in soaps, skin care products and more. Ask for a complimentary demonstration.


For health!

Chemicals to Especially Watch For

See if you can find these chemicals in your personal care products:

  • DEA (Diethanolamine, linked to cancer) is found in over 60 home and personal care products.
  • Propylene Glycol (anti-freeze, used in cars and trucks, linked to skin conditions, kidney damage, gastro-intestinal disturbances, nausea, headaches, vomiting, central nervous system depression and liver abnormalities), can be found in shampoos, deodorants, cosmetics, lotions and toothpastes.
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS/SLES, used to clean concrete and degrease engines) can be a mutagen, likely impares hair growth and damage young eyes, can combine with other chemicals to become cancer-forming, can damage the immune system and damage skin. SLS is extremely popular in toothpastes.
  • Talc powder, a cousin to asbestos (which is a known cancer-causing substance) may be associated with infertility and ovarian cancer, is found in many "body and baby" powders, feminine powders, condoms and cosmetics.
  • Aluminum may contribute to Alzheimer's, and is found in some processed foods, antiperspirants, antacides, cosmetics, paper products, beverage cans, foil and cookware
  • Triclosan, the active ingredient in most antibacterial products, is a known endocrine disruptor, which can cause thyroid problems and cancer. The Canadian Medical Association has called for it to be banned from consumer products, out of concern that triclosan could contribute to antibiotic resistant bacteria, also known as "superbugs."

Given the increasingly toxic world we live in our bodies sometimes struggle to keep up.


Here is a short article on foods that can help.


Below is an article about a number of other methods, including the gentle one using pure, essential oils, called the Raindrop Technique.

Emotional well-being

Our emotional well-being is a direct result of the quality and quantity of meaningful connections with other human beings. Socially active people generally stay healthier, longer. Hugs actually improve your immune system, plus your sense of connection and belonging.


For example, dementia is delayed or stopped when people have sufficient physical exercise, engage in continual learning, enjoy solid emotional connections with others, and eat appropriately.


We can assist you in lowering your stress levels and improving your relationships, or refer to others who can do so.





Residue of popular herbicide likely encourages illness


A chemical and food company wants us to believe that glysophate, a widely-used herbicide, is not only safe -it might be used to treat cancer!


How profitable, as it may also increase your risk for cancer.


Glysophate is considered to be toxic to animals, including humans. A study by two independent scientists, published in Entropy April 2013, connects the increasingly widespread use of glyphosate with modern diseases because of its "inhibition of cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, an overlooked component of its toxicity to mammals. CYP enzymes play crucial roles in biology, one of which is to detoxify xenobiotics. Thus, glyphosate enhances the damaging effects of other food borne chemical residues and environmental toxins."


In other words, it slowly induces disease.


"Consequences are most of the diseases and conditions associated with a Western diet, which include gastrointestinal disorders, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression, autism, infertility, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease."


A copy of the whole report can be found under the link GMO's.


Conclusion: only eat organically grown food or foods known not to have been sprayed with Round-up Ready herbicide. Consider also helping your cells to repair from this damage by using Asea.






Ending the Junk Food Obsession

Eating healthy

We all know that smoking tobacco is bad for our health. With both public pressure and far higher taxes, smoking is (thankfully) on the decline in Canada.


Now we are facing the crushing health effects of junk food and beverages. These are filled with bad fats, sugar, and salt -plus colorants in soft drinks. The results are alarming: rapidly rising rates of obsity, diabetes, heart conditions, cancer, and far more. Our health care system can't keep up. It turns out that a tobacco company is the largest junk food company! Even the most ardent libertarian (who dislikes government intervention in our lives) may have to concede that doing nothing about this epidemic is harming all of us.


Thus we may have to do the same thing with junk food and drinks as we did with tobacco: apply social pressure as well as add taxes. We know that banning didn't work with alcohol (and isn't working with street drugs). At least taxing these ills will raise money needed to pay for the freedom to eat and drink ourselves into oblivion. For more information read this Globe & Mail article.
