When cleaning out the freezer this weekend, I noticed that I had a few bags of frozen pumpkin puree. I had just finished making a fresh batch of BONE SOUP, so it seemed like the perfect time for making the bone soup into pumpkin soup.

GRANOLA - A Healthy Alternative Cereal

Posted on September 27, 2022 at 1:30 AM Comments comments (0)

As many of you may know, I love to cook. Give me any recipe, and I will find a way to make it healthier. So when a patient asked what to feed her 5 year old child who loves conventional cereal, the first thing that came to mind was Granola. Sure it’s not the healthiest food out there, but it’s a lot better than Fruit Loops and Coco Pebbles.

The Fallout from The Shot

Posted on September 4, 2022 at 10:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Hi all!


The time is right and we are back. Our blog has been silent for over two years and now is the time to speak.

There are certain things concerning dentistry that I have observed during this time that deserve mentioning:


1. Postings about mercury and fluoride are no longer being censored on social networks.

2. Postings about “the shot” or politics are constantly being removed or censored.

3. Everyone is concerned about l...

Facial Rejuvenation with Acupuncture

Posted on February 9, 2020 at 6:20 PM Comments comments (0)

I just got the nicest compliment. I was returning from the airport recently, taking the Express bus back to the city, and got carded when requesting the senior citizens discount. The guy just couldn’t believe that I was over that certain age.


And just last week, I was at a dental meeting, and a classmate (from 40 years ago) of mine, approached me to see if it were really me. He said that he walked by a few times to be sure, because I looked too young to be me now.

Stopping Tooth Decay

Posted on December 25, 2019 at 10:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Every now and then, I have a patient who is not a perfect candidate for dental work. Usually, there is a cavity that needs to be filled but the patient can’t sit still long enough to have a filling done. These patients are either very young (under the age of 5) or considerably aged. Either way there are compliance issues and they can’t cooperate enough to have a filling completed.


Standard protocol would usually require for the dental work to be done under genera...

Finding Natural Health Information on the Internet

Posted on November 3, 2019 at 9:45 PM Comments comments (2)

In case you haven’t noticed, it is getting more and more difficult to find natural health information through the usual search engines. In June 2019, Google began a new algorithm to change ranking results in their search engine. Many “holistic” and “natural” websites have been excluded from the page one listings thereby making it more difficult to find the health information and/or practitioner that you are seeking.

Dental Fluorosis Update

Posted on July 21, 2019 at 10:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Dental fluorosis is not a pretty sight. In this modern day, pearly white teeth are in, mottled teeth are not. It is particularly upsetting when our children’s teeth erupt this way and are disfigured for life, knowing that there is little that can be done to undo the damage.

Presently, I am using a detox product that is working well for me and I believe it will fare well with even the most sensitive person.


I am now into my third month of Advanced TRS, and I must say that I truly feel tha...

Why is My Head Buzzing?

Posted on April 28, 2019 at 8:35 PM Comments comments (0)

For more than one hundred years, dental gold has been considered the “gold standard” in dental restorations. Used in crowns as well as tooth fillings alongside mercury silver fillings and other metals in the mouth, it has been found that this can create an electrical current sensation in the mouth.

Once the mainstay of dentistry, amalgam mercury fillings are now in sharp decline and have been discontinued in several countries. Despite its deceptive name "silver fillings," amalgam's main component is actually mercury, a neurotoxin and a heavy metal.

Have you ever noticed that your teeth look thinner than they used to? Maybe even a bit darker? Some wear is inevitable as we age, but excessive wearing away of the tooth surface can have many causes.


According to one recent study, general dental erosion was found in 28% of 15 year olds and 34% of 17 year olds. Basically that means that erosion prevalence is rising as we chronologically age. Ad...

Amazing Magnesium

Magnesium deficiency is rampant. While less than 2% of Americans have been estimated to experience magnesium deficiency, one study suggests that up to 75% are not meeting their recommended intake.  In most cases, deficiency is often overlooked until the person becomes extremely symptomatic. Even then, a different health condition may be the diagnosis with no regard to mag...
