Many patients have often asked me to name the one thing that I would recommend most to restore and maintain health. Now, that is a tough question, since my list of healthy healing modalities gets longer by the week. But if I had to narrow it down to one thing that can be done on a regular basis to promote good health, it would be Green Juices. I can’t survive very long without my green juices. If I miss more than 2 days, I actually crave the stuff.

Himalayan Salt has recently been re-discovered as one of nature’s purest and most complete mineral salt sources on Earth. There are 84 minerals found in the salt, and for that reason it has tremendous therapeutic effects.
To begin with, it is great in everyday cooking. Take your purified, iodized and chemicalized white table salt and throw it in the garbage. Not only is it demineralized, many brands actually add dextrose (sugar) to make it taste better. So now you can ...Read Full Post »

In this age of veganism, the idea of eating animal meat is verboten. However, this is also an age of rising health problems, weakened immune systems and poor vitality. With this understanding, it is important to keep an open mind for unique health boosting methods.
As an integrative holistic practitioner, it is not unusual for me to meet clients who are quite brilliant in many diverse healing modalities; and as a result, they educate me to some esoteric health building tech...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 »

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 am sure that the word “fluoride” popped into your head when you read the title of this post, along with flossing, brushing and avoiding sugars. These are important factors to consider, but there is another issue worth a look. Phytic acid.
Phytic acid is found in grains, nuts, seeds and beans, and represents a serious problem in our diets. It is the principal storage form of phosphorus in many plant tissues, especially in the bran porti...Read Full Post »

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.

After looking in so many mouths for so many decades, there is one thing that I have found in common with the majority of my patients. Mineral deficiency. This includes even the very health conscious patients. I can usually assess this deficiency by tongue reading, and after asking a few basic questions, my suspicions are confirmed.
Mineral deficiency is rampant in our culture and it is many times diagnosed as something else. A perfect example of this is irregular heartbeat...Read Full Post »

I like to consider myself adventurous when it comes to finding unusual and exciting health-promoting foods to eat. So when the holidays aprroached and my son asked what I would like as a gift, my usual answer would have been chocolate, preferably raw and dark. But being that he works in the Chinatown area, I asked if he would surprise me with one of those unusual looking fruits that the supermarkets sell down there.
I basically have no idea what they are named and even less...Read Full Post »

Aluminum toxicity is rampant.
Considering that many neurological diseases are on the rise, this is not a surprising statement. Aluminum is not a heavy metal like mercury or lead, but its effects can be just as devastating.
Aluminum can accumulate in the brain, causing seizures an...Read Full Post »

Due to my many publications on alternative health, I was recently contacted by a health magazine for my ideas of unusual ways for adults to get a better night's sleep. And since many of the patients I see are dealing with this problem as well, I thought it would be worth sharing here.

As a dentist, I have seen many patients with significant jaw bone loss. This is not a good thing as it is a marker for loose teeth and eventual tooth loss. Sometimes it may be associated with the usual symptoms of periodontal disease and you should read our previous post Floss First! for further clarity. But other times, the periodontal hea...Read Full Post »

When one thinks about losing teeth, usually we think of periodontal (gum) disease, deep dental decay or maybe even trauma (getting hit in the mouth). But as baby boomers age, one has to consider how medication may play a part in this.

Colostrum is what is often referred to as "pre-milk", or the fluid produced by the mother's mammary glands during the first 72 hours following the birth of her child. Colostrum provides vital immune and growth factors that ensure the health and vitality of the newborn. In fact, all mammals produce colostrum after giving birth to their young; and receiving colostrum is so important that most baby animals would become ill and die prematurely without it. Colostrum contains almost no lactose, so ...Read Full Post »
