Holistic Dental Care

The Complete Guide to Healthy Teeth and Gums

Publisher: North Atlantic Books

ISBN: 1583947213

Category: Health & Fitness

Page: 152

View: 9347

A comprehensive guide to natural, do-it-yourself oral care, Holistic Dental Care introduces simple, at-home dental procedures that anyone can do. Highlighted with fifty-three full-color photos and illustrations, this book offers dental self-care strategies and practices that get to the core of the problems in our mouths--preventing issues from taking root and gently restoring dental health. Based on a "whole body approach" to oral care, Holistic Dental Care addresses the limits of the traditional approach that treats only the symptoms and not the source of body imbalances. Taking readers on a tour of the ecology of the mouth, dental health expert and author Nadine Artemis describes the physiology of the teeth and the sources of bacteria and decay. Revealing the truth about the artificial chemicals in many toothpastes and mouthwashes, Artemis also discusses the harmful effects of mercury fillings and the much safer ceramic filling options that are available. Covering topics that include healthy nutrition, oral care for children, and the benefits of botanical substances and plant extracts for maintaining oral health, Artemis introduces a comprehensive eight-step self-dentistry protocol that offers an effective way to prevent decay, illness, acidic saliva, plaque build-up, gum bleeding, inflammation, and more.

The Art of Selling the Art of Healing

How the Rebels of Today Are Creating the Health Care of Tomorrow; and Why Your Life Depends on It

The most important ingredient in the art of healing is the art of selling. I say that with all the respect in the world for every other part of this vast system of care that has grown into a sprawling and complex three-trillion-dollar metropolis. For the last sixty or so years, the providers of care have depended on third-party entities to handle the part of selling for them. From insurance companies who sold millions of people on the importance of paying monthly premiums for health-care insurance to the government that did the same thing under the more intimidating, compulsory taxation. Today, we have come to a fork in the road where (as the system implodes) those who control the flow of monetary resources are filling their own bank accounts, leaving the people who are busy providing care on that field of battle with all supply lines cut off. Many healers are, therefore, forced to shed all the entities that have forced themselves between the doctor and her patient. Exploring their original entrepreneurial roots, allowing the patient to bypass all middlemen and pay the doctor for care directly. The trouble comes in when the healing professional steps out of a world where all the marketing was handled for them and the only thing they needed to know was how to submit a bill to a third-party payer for reimbursement. So when embarking on this new journey of building a concierge, pay-for-service practice, many are derailed by the ‘Flat Earth Fallacy’ that is a perception of things as they seem but are, in reality, very different. This book then is to share some field-tested experiences that will, in all probability, save the health-care entrepreneur some pain and expense, while providing a perspective on the driving elements of success in the art of selling the art of healing.

The Dental Diet

The Surprising Link between Your Teeth, Real Food, and Life-Changing Natural Health

Throughout the years, dental health has often been characterized as a reflection of our overall health, where bad oral health results from issues with other parts of our body. But what if we flipped the paradigm? What if we thought about dental health as the foundation for our physical health as a whole? Dr. Steven Lin, an experienced dentist and the world’s first dental nutritionist, has analyzed our ancestral traditions, epigenetics, gut health, and the microbiome in order to develop food-based principles for a literal top-down holistic health approach. Merging dental and nutritional science, Dr. Lin lays out the dietary program that can help ensure you won’t need dental fillings or cholesterol medications —and give you the resources to raise kids who develop naturally straight teeth. With our mouth as the gatekeeper of our gut, keeping our oral microbiome balanced will create a healthy body through a healthy mouth. Dr. Lin arms you with a 40-day meal plan, complete with the Dental Diet food pyramid, exercises for the mouth, recipes, and cooking techniques to help you easily and successfully implement his techniques into your everyday life. The tools to improve overall wellness levels and reverse disease are closer than we think —in our markets, in our pantries, and, most frequently, in our mouths —if not just a well-chosen bite or two away.

This book shows readers that den-tal problems, including discoloured and unattractive teeth, can easily be controlled -- without pain, flossing or big dental bills. Dr Ellie Phillips has developed a low-cost system to strengthen your teeth and keep them healthy and without big bills! Her simple, preventive program has just three steps: 1. Use Xylitol -- a sweetener derived from a natural sugar found in plant and vegetable fibres -- to eliminate bacteria; Use well-tested mouth rinses to further eliminate bacteria and control the acidity in your mouth; Avoid foods, drinks, and situations that weaken tooth enamel, and consume protective, healing foods to build it up. Traditional dentistry cannot prevent cavities or eliminate gum disease. But this do-it-yourself treatment plan can. Using the products Dr Phillips recommends, in the way she describes, reduces plaque build-up, strengthens tooth enamel, repairs small cavities, eliminates tooth sensitivity, and improves the way your teeth look. Who wouldn't love clean, whiter, healthier teeth?

The Story of a Hidden Epidemic

There's a silent epidemic in western civilization, and it is right under our noses. Our jaws are getting smaller and our teeth crooked and crowded, creating not only aesthetic challenges but also difficulties with breathing. Modern orthodontics has persuaded us that braces and oral devices can correct these problems. While teeth can certainly be straightened, what about the underlying causes of this rapid shift in oral evolution and the health risks posed by obstructed airways? Sandra Kahn and Paul R. Ehrlich, a pioneering orthodontist and a world-renowned evolutionist, respectively, present the biological, dietary, and cultural changes that have driven us toward this major health challenge. They propose simple adjustments that can alleviate this developing crisis, as well as a major alternative to orthodontics that promises more significant long-term relief. Jaws will change your life. Every parent should read this book.

Cure Tooth Decay

Remineralize Cavities and Repair Your Teeth Naturally with Good Food [Second Edition]

Forget about drilling, filling, and the inevitable billing. Your teeth can heal naturally because they were never designed to decay in the first place! They were designed to remain strong and healthy for your entire life. But the false promises of conventional dentistry have led us down the wrong path, leading to invasive surgical treatments that include fillings, crowns, root canals and dental implants. Now there is a natural way to take control of your dental health by changing the food that you eat. Cure Tooth Decay is based upon the pioneering nutritional program of dentist Weston Price, former head of research at the National Dental Association. Dr. Price's program proved to be 90-95% or more effective in remineralizing tooth cavities utilizing only nutritional improvements in the diet. Cure Tooth Decay is the result of five years of research and trial and error that started as one father's journey to cure his daughter's rapidly progressing tooth decay. With Cure Tooth Decay you will join the thousands of people who have learned how to remineralize teeth, eliminate tooth pain or sensitivity, avoid root canals, stop cavities -- sometimes instantaneously, regrow secondary dentin, form new tooth enamel, avoid or minimize gum loss, heal and repair tooth infections, only use dental treatments when medically necessary, save your mouth (and your pocketbook) from thousands of dollars of unneeded dental procedures, and increase your overall health and vitality.

Do you, or someone you know, live with snoring, teeth grinding, poor sleep, aches and pains, chronic fatigue, moodiness, and other seemingly inexplicable symptoms? Your whole body suffers oxygen deficiency from a clogged airway and poor sleep when your mouth is structurally impaired. Six-Foot Tiger, Three-Foot Cage is the first book EVER to connect the dots between your mouth structure and total health.

Actual cases illustrate how Holistic Mouth Solutions(TM) can effectively redevelop "three-foot cages" by combining innovative Whole Health approaches with stem-cell-activating oral appliances to produce unexpected and even life-changing improvements. "An Impaired Mouth is the start of a domino effect leading to medical, dental, mental, and financial troubles. Pay attention." - Sally Fallon Morell, President, The Weston A. Price Foundation "Dr. Liao's 6FT3FC shows ingenious ways to solve snoring, sleep apnea, teeth grinding, chronic pain, and fatigue with his novel-yet-sensible Holistic Mouth Solutions." - Steven Y.
