What you don’t know about your toothpaste might cause a toothache… or worse, a cavity!

September 18, 2019

Is Your Toothpaste Causing Cavities?  Don't lose your teeth because you brushed with the wrong toothpaste.  I am fed up with the Health And Beauty industry making us SICK, UGLY AND DEPRESSED! 

We need healthy options!  I took a walk down the dental/deodorant aisle of Giant Eagle (a local mainstream grocery store) and was disgusted with the dental options they offer.  You might not shop at Giant Eagle, but a friend or family member might.  I know for sure mom’s shop here for their families.  Kids are at a higher risk of health issues because of their smaller size and habits… kids typically swallow their toothpaste.  No stopping it from happening… and any toothpaste with fluoride is toxic and requires a call to poison control if more than a small pea-sized amount is ingested.  Seriously, that warning is on all toothpaste with fluoride and no one even notices it!

If it’s so toxic that poison control is listed as a “what to do next”, why are we putting this in our mouths and the mouths of children who do not understand the concept of spitting?

This health nurse wants you to be aware of what you are buying… let me clarify.  What the dental industry DOES NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW YOU ARE BUYING

Toothpaste, it sounds healthy and healing, right?  The simple act of brushing your teeth is self-love and healthy... right?

Especially when they put “Enamel Health” right on the front of the box.  It’s like the commercials of medications that have horrible side effects, but the soothing, soft voice makes them all sound so comfortable you really could care less your liver could stop working or your brain might form a life-threatening clot. 

When I walked down the aisles of Giant Eagle, they resemble thousands of other grocery stores across the US and other countries.   If you think “health” food stores are better, think again.  It is YOUR responsibility to know what each ingredient is, how it works in your body and what you are buying.  As a registered nurse and healthy skincare formulator, I can easily spot the imposters, like Colgate’s Enamel Health… but can you? 

If you think the beauty industry is in the health business… think again. 

Most skincare is not healthy.  Most products contain so many toxins any “health benefits” are completely negated.  When you see SODIUM LAUREL SULFATE in a face wash, hand soap, toothpaste or any other product… you NEVER see the label promise “this could cause cancer”.  Instead, they only highlight the “healthy” ingredients even when they make up less than 1% of the formula.  I know how to read labels and find the hidden toxins.  You should know this too!  If you want to learn how to READ LABELS so you KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING… join my next How To Read Skincare Labels To Find The Hidden Toxins webinar here.

Depression.  It's a sad state that more and more Americans are being diagnosed as depressed.  How can your skincare make you depressed?  If you have health issues, need multiple medications, lack energy and have little hope… depression happens.  Depression is a lucrative business to treat.  Skincare contains ingredients that are making you sick which leads straight down the past to…depression. 

Back to Giant Eagle… and my walk down the aisle. 


There was not one HEALTHY option for deodorant or toothpaste!  There were plenty of imposters… Colgate’s ENAMEL HEALTH whitening toothpaste for instance!  It sells you “ENAMEL HEALTH” right on the front of the box…. What you are actually buying is GUM DISEASE, CAVITIES AND HEALTH ISSUES!

Flip the box over… the proof is in the ingredients.  Companies like Colgate KNOW the average consumer does not read labels and of the small percentage that does, most do not know what the ingredients mean or do.  Companies BANK (huge) on that!  

Don’t be fooled by the marketing!  I am the Natural Health And Beauty Nurse and I am here to protect you against marketing ploys!  I can teach you how to spot “health imposters” and read labels so you KNOW what you are buying.  

If you are using this toothpaste, you bought your cavities, gum disease, and health issues.  You paid for them and you will continue to pay for them through the treatments and medications you need to “support” your diseases. 

I can help you STOP the cycle.

I can teach you how to read the ingredients.  Colgate ENAMEL HEALTH is telling you to brush with this and you will have healthy enamel.  Enamel needs minerals and an alkaline environment to demineralize.  

A closer examination of this toothpaste ingredient list will prove it DOES NOT promote enamel health… it does the opposite and can lead to internal health issues.

Colgate Enamel Health ingredients: FLUORIDE, water, sorbitol, hydrated silica, GLYCERIN, PEG-12, tetrasodium pyrophosphate, SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE, FLAVOR, MICROCRYSTALLINE CELLULOSE, zinc phosphate, cellulose gum, COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE, SODIUM SACCHARIN, xanthan gum, MICA, TITANIUM DIOXIDE.

Fluoride is NOT a mineral your teeth need and when you were born, there was no fluoride in your body.  Enamel needs minerals like calcium… there is no calcium in this product.  See this image taken from their website... Helps replenish natural calcium. 🤦🏻‍♀️ HOW????


***Worse, this toothpaste like many others including natural toothpaste, contains GLYCERIN.  Glycerin puts a coating over your enamel and PREVENTS minerals from your diet and saliva to get in the enamel!  If you see glycerin in your toothpaste, it is creating cavities.  All of the harsh ingredients listed in this product are causing gum disease and cavities. 

Buyer beware.  As a consumer, you have the right to HEALTHY OPTIONS.

The ingredients of my nurse-formulated Dirty Mouth Toothpowder: a blend of THREE mineral-rich, alkalizing clays (bentonite, kaolin, French green) with baking soda and essential oils.

When you use my Dirty Mouth Toothpaste and Toothpowder, you are investing in your overall health… and you are buying your fresh breath, healthy gums, and strong, cavity resistant teeth!  Oh… you also bought internal health!  Way to go… now you can spend your time and money on the things you love instead of procedures, medications, and treatments! 

Glycerin puts a coating on your teeth that lasts for a while.  It’s so you don’t “feel” sensitivities to hot and cold foods/liquids.  The problem is this:  if there is glycerin in your toothpaste, REMINERALIZATION CAN NOT HAPPEN even if there are minerals present.  Glycerin blocks this from happening. There are a bunch of other reasons this toothpaste will destroy your health: it contains ingredients KNOWN to cause cancer, disrupt hormones, irritate the tissues which will cause gum disease, allergens, and neurotoxins.  Why else would they have to put the “poison” warning on the box that NO ONE READS?   (They know no one reads it…)

The REAL Truth: It’s in the ingredient list.

Just like food choices, you MUST read the ingredient list and understand what you are buying. 

"If you want the truth, you have to understand the ingredients." Trina Felber, RN

When I made my toothpaste and toothpowder, the OUTCOMES I wanted were strong, hard teeth, healthy gums, and fresh breath.  No gimmicks.  No lies.  No fake ingredients. 

Dirty Mouth Toothpowder and Toothpaste has only ingredients that build health inside the mouth.  Clay (bentonite, kaolin, French green), baking soda (alkaline), essential oils (anti-bacterial and stimulate healing) and colloidal silver (toothpaste, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and supports healthy saliva) 

Clay cleanses the mouth tissues.  For kids who do not understand the concept of spitting, all of my formulas have food-grade clay and do not cause any harm if ingested.

When you use my Dirty Mouth Toothpowder, you are buying a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile.  You are leaving behind dentist bills, pain, and internal disease.

Smile happy with me!

January 21, 2020

There are plenty of culprits to blame for dull, aging skin. Everything from UV rays to pesticides to crappy skincare products are partially responsible for the tired, wrinkled skin staring back at you in the mirror.

We all like to joke that sleep is a luxury we can’t afford, but it’s actually one of the most essential elements of vibrant, optimal health. If you can spend more quality time with your pillows, you’ll reap the benefits that inspired the term “beauty sleep”.

Toxins In Skincare: Hidden so you can't find them! Find out HOW to read a skincare label!

January 20, 2020

The fragrance is the "F" word of skincare.  So tox-sick, it's the NEW second-hand smoke.

Water... sounds harmless but could be the MOST toxic of them all!

Your skincare could be "cancer-care" if you are using products that contain hidden carcinogens!  

The average woman puts 515 synthetic chemicals on her body every single day without even knowing. It takes only 26 seconds for what you put on your skin to be absorbed INTO your bloodstream.

The obvious toxins are easy to find. Phthalates, parabens, propylene glycol, fragrance, and formaldehyde. You avoid those already. But the cosmetic industry is in business to make money… at all costs. They have found ways to “hide” toxins in skin and beauty care products so you can’t find them, or they sound so natural you skim past them as you scan the ingredient list.
