Make Your own Toothpaste | Chaya Grossberg

While on psychiatric drugs (or other pharmaceuticals like birth control pills and so on), your body can lose minerals, causing problems with the teeth.

Due to a nutrient deficient diet and other stress factors, including trauma and anxiety, most of us start to experience some tooth problems and a need for remineralization as we get older.

Store bought toothpastes, even the natural ones, usually contain some form of sugar (aka glycerine), which is harmful to the teeth and takes a long time to clear out of the tooth. The few brands that are truly good for your teeth are expensive, so I learned how to make my own toothpaste.

It’s quite easy and the cool thing is that when I am traveling, I often use a make shift version with one or two ingredients such as coconut oil, baking soda and/or castille soap. I did find that castille soap used without ample coconut oil too frequently started to burn my mouth, so i would advise mixing a small amount of it with a good amount of coconut oil and other things.

I don’t usually measure the ingredients, but would advise coconut oil as the base and a small amount of everything else.

Here is my homemade toothpaste and the ingredients with approximate amounts:

It’s so strange that we put way too much emphasis on being “good” at things rather than just doing them!

Realistic visual art was never my forte, or interest, so I was surprised that…

Today’s Salad and Nutrition Tip | Chaya Grossberg

Nutrition is one of the most important things that has allowed me to live free of psychiatric drugs and understand my body, my moods, and my energy levels.

Tip: if you tend to feel anxious and ungrounded, eat extra fat such as organic olive oil, organic coconut oil or pastured butter. When I started eating extra healthy fats, I felt so much more in control of my state of mind and even sleep. When I have insomnia I often consume…
