Well, I finally have a Blog. Considering that my patients have told me for years that I should write a book, this is probably the next best thing, and certainly a good beginning to creating that reality.
For those who know me as Dr. Brand, your friendly neighborhood holistic dentist, let me first say “Thank you”. Mostly for being there for me when times were tough, through my Lyme disability and my consequent chronic health problems that plagued me for years afterwards. I know many of you have called my story “inspirational” but truly, my story is your story. Many of you have given me specks of insight that have had me running for the next best cure of whatever needed curing. What happened to me could very easily have happened to you. And actually, for some of you, it did. So I hope this forum will give you the insights that you need to heal too.
For those of you that haven’t met me, let me say “Welcome”. I hope that this will be a meeting place to share ideas and ideals of health, healing and well-being.
So what is Enlightened Dentistry™? Good question. I’m glad that you asked. Well, since I trademarked the phrase, perhaps I should explain.
First, let me say that conventional modern dentistry is good. Actually it is better than good, “Its Great!” (no Tony the Tiger pun intended). But as many of you know, it’s not perfect. If it were perfect, we wouldn’t have gone the route of Holistic Dentistry- a cutting edge field that encompasses the best of conventional dentistry with complementary and biomimetric techniques.
So, Enlightened Dentistry™ came about when I realized that there had to be something more. More, because many of us replaced our amalgams, and had our root canal teeth extracted, yet still continued to be sick.
And that’s when I realized that we need to remember that we are energetic beings more so than physical beings. So, when we shift the energetic field within us and around us, we will finally, truly heal. It worked for me and I believe that it can work for you. And for those of you who have been to the office, you know this first hand when you experience the shift to relaxation with a 2-minute tune up.
Believing is seeing. The power of the mind to create health has been proven. And when we believe that we can be healed, we will be.
So today’s healing hint is simple: Be grateful. Grateful that you can breathe on you own, that your arms and legs work, that your eyes can read this blog, that you have food on the table, a roof over your head, friends or family that care about you, a pet that loves you, a better job opportunity that is coming along, and grateful to be living in a free society where your only limitation is your own belief systems.
So next time, before you go to bed, “count your blessings instead of sheep”. And watch how your life will change in the next 24 hours. Thank you Bing Crosby (from the movie White Christmas). Happy Holidays!
