How to Get The Most Out of Your Greens

Chewing a salad only allows you to absorb a small amount of the nutrients it has to offer. To absorb nutrients from a leafy green plant, the cell wall has to be broken down so that the nutrients can be absorbed into the bloodstream. Chewing a salad will only break down 20 to 30 percent of the cell walls. This prevents you from absorbing most of the nutrients even though they are passing through you. What is the best way to break down the cell wall? Juicing greens is better than chewing them but BLENDING them is the best way … Continue reading

The Future of Health Care with Lisa Caller, AP

Here we are, presenting another video interview of a health practitioner and their “alternative” approach! Lisa Caller, is an Acupuncture Physician introducing the subject of energy medicine! A fascinating interview, yet it would seem to have nothing to do with dentistry, so why would we continue to do this?

What Do YOUR Teeth Have To Do With Chronic Disease?

First of all, what is a chronic disease? The US Center for Health Statistics says a chronic disease is one that lasts for three months or more and cannot be prevented by any vaccine or “cured” by medication. It is something that can only be “treated” and often by methods that have side effects causing additional damage.

Statistically, … Continue reading

Would you recognize the symptoms of diabetes? Do you know the difference between the various types? They are quite different! It seems like everyone knows that it involves blood sugar levels, but exactly why is it so low or so elevated? What’s the problem? As a hint, it is not a one to one direct relationship with how much sugar you eat. Diabetes is referred to as a metabolic disorder meaning it has to do with the way our bodies use digested food for energy and growth. Anything that crosses the lips and teeth into the mouth, via a dentist or by your own hand, as … Continue reading

Without taking into account the whole body perspective, the dental diagnosis and … Continue reading
