Did you know that our jaw structure could be an indicator of evolutionary decline?
In this episode of the Align Podcast, Dr. Steven Lin and I chat about what our tongue posture and jaw structure can tell us about our health. We also chat about the health risks associated with over-disinfecting everything and how oral antibacterials can surprisingly increase your risk of diabetes.
Dr. Steven Lin is a world-leading functional dentist, TEDx speaker, and author of the International #1 Amazon Best Selling Book, The Dental Diet. As a passionate preventative, whole health advocate, Dr. Lin focuses on the understanding of dental disease through nutritional principles.
