Course Description

Health begins right up front, in the nose and mouth. The nose and the mouth are the gateways to our respiratory system and our entire digestive system. Bacteria that enter through these portals and simply pass through do not cause any problems, but when harmful bacteria make their home in the upper respiratory tract, they breed and multiply. This invasion can lead to sinus infections, pneumonia, ear infections, and can even trigger asthmatic attacks. A revolutionary approach to inhibiting this bacterial assault is the utilization of xylitol.

  • Describe the natural nasal defense mechanism
  • Understand how xylitol can improve respiratory health
