Don’t look for actress Julia Roberts to be pitching toothpaste on TV anytime soon.
In a surprising tidbit of information about her personal care routine, the Oscar-winning actress revealed that she does not use toothpaste to maintain the beautiful smile that made her famous.
What’s more, she doesn’t use any of the natural brands of toothpaste that many consumers are switching to as they discover the many dangerous chemicals and other additives contained in conventional toothpaste.
In an interview with InStyle magazine, Ms. Roberts shocked the house by revealing that she uses a humble dollop of baking soda to brush her teeth.
I brush [my teeth] with baking soda. [My grandfather] would put a big heaping mound of it on his toothbrush. He had only one cavity in his entire life.
What Ms. Roberts may not realize is that her grandfather was onto something. Many top holistic dentists recommend baking soda mixed with a bit of sea salt as the best way to keep those pearly whites as well as the gums happy and healthy for life.
My own family uses a baking soda, sea salt, hydrogen peroxide mixture, called “The Secret” recommended by a well known holistic dentist who discussed it at a seminar on nontoxic dentistry that I attended some years ago. We’ve used it for years with wonderful results!
Natural toothpaste, while nontoxic, frequently contain glycerin which sticks to teeth and inhibits remineralization and therefore actually contributes to cavity formation!
Another option for those who don’t tolerate baking soda and want to avoid toothpaste is a no glycerin, no fluoride tooth gel complete with teeth and gum strengthening herbs. This type of gel (find it here) is also safe for those with mercury-based amalgam fillings.

That’s horrendous, to suggest you have the answer to an individual’s fertility and to comment on it not only outside of your head, but in a public forum!
Fertility is intensely complex.
While hormone disrupters are certainly a massive issue for both male and female and especially the few fertile intersexed people, it is not a definitive answer for anyone . And as far as you, I and all of your potential readers (bar this famous person and maybe her fertility dr-if she’s ever seen one) copious amounts of soy milk might even help her as an individual with individual glands and hormone levels.
Unless of course you are privy to the precise condition and its effects within an individual I suggest you reconsider such tasteless distractions from the actual point of your post, which I think was something about baking soda.

I would be careful using baking soda. Yes on occasion, but it could b harmful after an extended time period

This is what I have been using and I love it!!
I do not enjoy the taste or texture of straight baking soda, unfortunately.

It was upsetting what happened on the Today Show regarding no poo. The low blow on the soy is no better than what Kathie Lee & Hoda did.

Very old household tip! My aunt taught me when I was a little girl…over 50 years ago….should have believed her!
