Understanding the Microbiome in Your Mouth

"The germ theory, which is now outdated, stated that bacteria were the cause of both tooth decay and gum disease. We now know that this is not the case - and that naturopathic medicine had it right all along. Naturopaths have always said that disease is not about the seed (bacteria) but the soil (microbial terrain). The causes of both tooth decay and gum disease are imbalances of the terrain - the oral microbiome. It’s really an amazing paradigm shift in scientific understanding."
