Just as the eyes are viewed as the window to the soul, the mouth is viewed as the window to the body.
As a dentist with several decades of clinical experience behind me, I can say this is absolutely true. As to which comes first, dental health or bodily health, it may be difficult to say. But regardless, it is always best to take care of both for super health.
If your mouth is a mess with gum disease, cavities, demineralized teeth or erosion, chances are...Read Full Post »

I guess the title of this post got your attention. Who in their right mind would cook with fluoride? Actually many of you are, and are not even aware of it.
As most of you already know, fluoride is a neurotoxin (destroys nerve cells) and it is found almost everywhere. Even in places that...

Do you sometimes feel that you have done everything possible to get well, yet your chronic illness still prevails? Replaced your mercury fillings? Removed your root canals? Juiced? Raw food vegan diet? Detoxed by every available technique? If you are running out of options, you might consider getting the MTHFR genetic test.

Toxins in the human body are an ever growing health concern. Mercury fillings, fluoride and BPA in dental materials are just the tip of the iceberg. When you truly stop and think about how many poisons we are exposed to on a daily basis, “overwhelming” is an understatement.
Toxins are not only in our food and medical supply; they are also in our living environment, including the air we breathe and the invisible EMFs that bombard us 24/7.

There is growing evidence that Americans would have better health and a lower incidence of cancer and fibrocystic disease of the breast if they consumed more iodine. A decrease in iodine intake coupled with an increased consumption of competing halogens, fluoride and bromide, has created an epidemic of iodine deficiency in America. - Dr. Donald Miller, Jr.
In our age of increasing radioactivity (Fukushima fallout, CAT scans, mammograms, body scanners at airports, x-ra...Read Full Post »

There are approximately 43 muscles in the human face. These muscles are important for showing emotions as well as speaking and eating. It is understandable that many of these can be overused contributing to tightness or underused contributing to sagging.

When Mother Teresa was asked many years ago if she would attend an anti-war rally, her answer was rather profound: I will not be part of an anti-war demonstration. As soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there.

Earthing is a relatively new concept in the field of natural health. It is different than grounding since you actually need to connect to Earth for it to occur. Although many of us have been doing it as a natural course in feeling well, the science of how it works has really not been discovered until recently.
Haven’t you noticed how wonderful you ...Read Full Post »

Post Hurricane Sandy has been a bit of a mess in the tri-state area.
Some of us lost electricity for a few days, but others lost so much more. I was one of the lucky ones. Although I had no electric or water at my home, my office was totally operational. With no clients, but a completely functional computer, I got busy.

I just recently returned from a holistic dental meeting and I was surprised to come across a company that has a system that measures cellular nitric oxide levels from a saliva sample.
For those who don’t know, nitric oxide is a free form of gas produced by the cells in our body. It is produced when enzymes in the body break down the amino acid Arginine, and is mainly used for intra-cellular communication.
Nitric oxide is required for key physiologica...Read Full Post »

For those who aren’t aware, I have been working on my book for the last 2 years. It was just published 2 weeks ago. “Congratulations” you say. Well, “Thank you very much.”
But here is the surprise; it is NOT about toxic dentistry and how to avoid it. At least not totally.

When one hears the word hemp, one usually thinks of something illegal (marijuana) or the fabric that makes potato sack bags.
Though its name might be a bit misleading, hemp milk is a perfectly legal, not to mention a healthy alternative for everyone to drink. Produced from the seeds of the hemp plant, this milk has only begun to be sold in the United States within the past few years.
One concern that people have about hemp milk is that it might contai...Read Full Post »

I take my cues for blogging from the patients that come to the office. Lately, I have had a cluster of clients with issues concerning their lymph system. The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs. It is composed mainly of lymph vessels, lymph nodes and lymph. Lymph vessels, which are different from blood vessels, carry fluid called lymph throughout your body. Lymph contains white blood cells that defend you against germs. Throughout the vessels are lymph nodes. Along...Read Full Post »

One of the most stressful times of the year is during the holidays.
Between Thanksgiving and New Years, partying and family gatherings are at the top of the list. But for many, somewhere along the way, the stress, the unrealistic expectations and the unreasonable demands show up; and the next thing you know, you're anxious, depressed, over-tired, and dreading one more day of the so-called "holiday good cheer."
If you have been waking up with your te...Read Full Post »

Billions of dollars have been made from putting plastics, fluoride and heavy-metal containing technology into everyday life. The industrial world is wealthy beyond belief. And the truth is that our bodies have become the world’s biggest toxic dumps.

An interesting occurrence just happened with our dog Celeste. She has been with us since the age of 9 weeks, so we pretty much know her personal doggie health and habits. She has always eaten very healthy home cooked food from stainless steel or ceramic bowls. But about 6 months ago, we started serving her food from the plastic container that it was stored in from the refrigerator.
Shortly thereafter, she developed a little growth on her lip. The veterinarian...Read Full Post »

As many of you already know, we always take a pH reading of your saliva at every routine hygiene visit. The question I often hear is “Why?’
Well, to put it simply, the saliva pH has got to be the easiest gauge of your overall health. No blood sample. No urine sample. But in less than 2 seconds we can tell the general condition of your entire body. Pretty amazing stuff!
A healthy saliva pH runs about 7.0, fairly neutral. We can give or take ...Read Full Post »
