This simple natural mouthwash is excellent for any kind of gum problem including receding gums, bleeding gums, gingivitis, gum disease, and even periodontal disease.

To make a sage rinse, cover a handful of fresh or tablespoon of dried sage with boiling spring water, steep in a teapot or jar  for 4-8 hours, then strain into a jar to keep in the bathroom. Swish a mouthful around after your daily brushing, then spit.

Use the herbal rinse instead of an alcohol based mouthwash because, aside from being very drying, alcohol-based mouthwashes are known to cause oral cancer.

Has a dentist told you that your cavities or receding gums are your fault because you are drinking too much Coke, you don’t floss enough or you need to stop breastfeeding your baby? And you know that isn’t true!

I’m a natural oral health coach and I'm not going to blame you or shame you.
The underlying causes of your oral health issues are not your fault!

Nature or nurture, ancestry or environment, free will or systemic oppression, unconscious emotions or the degraded food system are the factors that make your teeth and gums vulnerable to disease.

Even though your tooth decay and gum disease is not your fault, it is within your power to change.

I can help you to turn your oral health around with natural strategies, healthy habits and intuitive insights.
