Oral Bacterial DNA Testing for Heart Attack & Stroke Risk

Oral Bacterial DNA Testing for Heart Attack & Stroke Risk

I just wanted to do a quick video on the
myperiopath testing OralDNA. Basically, what we’re looking at here is the DNA
that you find in your saliva. But it’s not so much your DNA. You can’t find your
own DNA in your saliva. But what we’re talking about with this specific test is
the bacteria that are in your mouth. You see if the studies have been done
the science is out there. People that have significant and bad gingivitis
periodontitis tend to have one type of one group of bacteria, whereas people
that have healthy gums have a different set of bacteria. So it’s fairly easy
sometimes even when you don’t notice obvious bleeding and obvious gingivitis.
You can see a significant population of the bad type of bacteria, and that’s
exactly what you see in this test. As you see, I braided out to shield the patient,
but there are a couple of things you can tell from this number. One, these are the
high-risk pathogens. Pg, I think, it’s Porphyromonas gingivalis. Again, you don’t
need to know the name. Tf – Tannerella forsythia. Again, some names that we
really don’t need to get too deep into there. That’s not important. What
is important is that you can actually see the burden of the amount of bacteria
that’s in the saliva as well. That’s what these black lines show. That’s the amount
of the DNA from that bacteria that’s carried in the saliva. And yes, you can get
significant improvement. I’ve got significant improvements on my
own. Now, what are the ways to do that? People tend to assume that you want to
go automatically to procedures and prescriptions. I’ve seen even use of oral
antibiotics for this, and sometimes that’s appropriate. I’ve seen a lot of
people talk about you using trays that have antibiotic solution in them or
solutions with peroxide or diluted chlorine. Now, one thing that they people
tend to forget is again just good ol’ plain mechanical activity – brushing and
flossing. And this is a soft pick I use. A lot of soft picks I recommend people use
them. Again, the idea is to keep that food from just sitting inside your gums,
especially between your teeth and gums in that critical place where you start
to develop pockets from infection. If you made it this far, thank you very much for
your interests. And well, let me just say this, and obviously I’m not a dentist.
That’s why I have people like Doug Thompson appear on our show quite a bit.
Thank you very much for your interest. Just so I’m very excited to announce we
now have a membership page. Now what is that? That’s the one place where you can
go and access all of our digital products. It starts off with a few free
things, like a lot of infographics, which help you understand the basics of
insulin resistance, cardiovascular inflammation, and other key concepts on
how to prevent heart attack and stroke. The next free item is the intro and
first chapter of the book that we’re writing on plaque and the standards of
medicine just aren’t doing very well right now in terms of the number one
killer and disabler – plaque. We don’t do a good job of measuring it, we don’t do a
good job of monitoring it, and there are better ways. So that’s what this book is
all about. Again, go in, and get a free look at the intro and the first chapter.
And if you’ve purchased the cardiovascular inflammation and IR
courses, thank you so much for doing that. You purchase those at a time before we
had them totally cleaned up. And we’ve cleaned them up now and they’re
available for you right there on the membership page. Hit the link below,
register and go in, and take a look. Look forward to seeing you there. Thank you.

  1. Oral bacteria is definitely a sign of how well heart functions. I've seen a real case of a sudden cardiac arrest of a known person who had gingivitis for nearly a year.

  2. Another interesting video. Dr. Brewer, I asked a question on your video about can plaque be reversed or reduced. I have my this year's CIMT results and I am improving.

  3. I've made significant progress in oral health with a never missed, daily regimen of Oral-B electric toothbrush, water pick flosser, followed by any good antiseptic mouthwash. Decay never sleeps!

  4. I was unable to get the test kit. I used to have bleeding gums. High-dose vitamin C and/or lyposomal vitamin C seems to work.

  5. Can you please cite a study comparing the edentulous patient population vs those with teeth in regards to systemic health

  6. If I ever have a inflamed gum I rub salt into it, a few days its gone. I once chatted with a maxillofacial surgeon who was removing a cyst from my maxila. He suggested that rinsing / gargling with salt water was good as any other thing.
