Tooth Powder


Stop Brushing with Toxins and Chemicals!


Now there's a new way to care for your teeth and gums - the Good-Gums way!  Made with a blend of all natural herbs, Good-Gums - a toothpaste replacement, provides critical minerals essential for building strong tooth enamel and healthy gums, without leaving behind a film like toothpaste.


Good-Gums soothes sore gums, cleans teeth with low abrasiveness and leads to stronger tooth enamel.  It also helps to counter acidity in the mouth while neutralizing the bacteria that promote plaque growth and cause odor.

"We will open the book. It's pages are blank.  We are going to put words on them ourselves.  The book is called 'Opportunity' and the first chapter is New Year's Day"

Edith Lovejoy Pierce


Each day can be the first chapter towards a better life.  This is a golden opportunity to rewrite our book.  To seek a balance in our lives through healthy habits including meditation.  Find a quiet time each day to be alone, breathe and find peace.


Happy New Year from your friends at
Alternative Therapy!
