1. You recommend chlorine dioxide as a pre-rinse in your system to balance the PH in your mouth. It can expensive to use everyday. What are your thoughts of using a premixed packets of pH balanced sodium chloride & sodium bicarbonate mixture (USP grade, natural ingredients, isotonic, preservative & iodine free) in an oral irrigator? Would that be sufficient for balancing the PH in the mouth.
2. You recommend using probiotics if you use chlorohexidine rinse. When can you take probiotics orally. After you rinse? Wouldn't the antibacterial rinse still be in the mouth and kill the probiotic good bacteria? What oral probiotic would you recommend?
Thank you for your message.
I get many wonderful testimonials every day from people who are thankful for this system and the way it can (almost miraculously) improve oral health.
I also get a lot of questions from people who want to change this system and create their own! I cannot advise you to do this. It took me many years to find this incredible and simple solution to oral health problems. It took years of trial and error - testing, interrogating patients and looking closely at oral health year after year.
You can use whatever you like, BUT I know you need to use my SYSTEM exactly - if you want to experience the improvements and helpful changes I talk about. You can get all kinds of problems from using the WRONG toothpaste, or if you substitute for Listerine or ACT. I suggest you use my system EXACTLY as I recommend. Think of this as a cake recipe - and you cannot change the ingredients!
Also, be sure not to confuse Closys ( Chlorine Dioxide) with Chlorhexidine ( a horrible rinse I would NEVER recommend). Closys basically gives your mouth an oxygen bath - which does not disrupt good oral bacteria. Xylitol is also specific for sticky and harmful bacteria - and it allows healthy bacteria to live in the mouth and behaves as a probiotic in the lower digestive tract. Listerine is effective because its actions come from the essential oils it contains. These have years of "testing" and do not build up resistance nor do they damage the healthy bacteria we need for sustainable oral health.
This is why I do NOT suggest you try other products.
It is easy to upset your mouth balance and end up with problems.
Those of us who have been using this system for decades - will never change. I hope this answers your question!
