You may remember the line from the movie Pretty Woman, “I had all those strawberry seeds. And you shouldn’t neglect your gums.” Vivienne was right. Talking about gum health and dental wellness may not be ‘sexy,’ but you’ll learn some shocking things from holistic periodontist and wellness expert, Dr. Sanda Moldovan. She believes health issues that manifest in the mouth are key indicators for one’s overall health. In this episode Lauren and Dr. Moldovan discuss what our gums can detect about our health (like high blood pressure), the signs we should be looking for, how we can prevent gum disease in midlife, and the changes we should be making since many of us are more stressed or may have ignored the dentist for over a year.
