Episode 194 of the Fit Father Project Podcast is about oral health and how the mouth can affect the organs — and so much more!

In this episode, you’ll meet Gary Kadi, the founder and chairman of the board of NextLevel Practice, a leading dental and medical consulting firm.

Gary has worked to empower dentists for over 20 years, transforming America’s view of oral health and elevating the standing of dentistry in the public consciousness.

As a dental and health expert, Gary discusses the importance of oral health and the mouth-body connection, highlighting the impact of oral pathogens on heart health. 

Maintaining good oral health is essential to prevent chronic health conditions. Poor oral hygiene can cause inflammation from periodontal disease, which can lead to cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, respiratory diseases, osteoporosis in the jaw, rheumatoid arthritis, premature birth, low birth weight, and even Alzheimer's and dementia. 

Taking care of your oral health is crucial, and Gary shows you how to do it. He also opens up about his journey to overcome addiction, and, as a successful entrepreneur, he shares his secrets to health, wealth, and happiness!

Key Takeaways:

  • Oral health is crucial for overall body health, as oral pathogens can contribute to heart attacks and other health issues. 
  • Addiction is often connected to trauma, and addressing the root causes is essential for healing. 
  • Maintaining health in five domains (physical, financial, social, mental, and spiritual) is key to overall well-being. 
  • Value exchange is important in financial health, and helping others achieve their goals can lead to financial success. 
  • Practicing forgiveness and letting go of self-righteousness can lead to mental and spiritual well-being.
