Fluoride is found everywhere today. Not just toothpaste and mouthwashes, but in many antibiotics, medications, and even non-stick cooking pans. I think that most of us know that it is found in many bottled waters and municipal water supplies.
The fallout from this fluoridated water supply is that it is currently in just about everything we eat or drink that has...Read Full Post »

Replacing your mercury fillings with a dental material that is more biocompatible and less toxic, is usually the goal of the vast majority of patients that come to see me. And I applaud each of you who actually take a proactive step to do so.
The question that usually comes up afterwards is: How do I remove the residual buildup of mercury from my body tissues?
There are many simple ways to detox, and you can actually read about many of them in my bookRead Full Post »

Candida (yeast) infections are on the rise; mostly due to side effects from medications, poor diet and alcohol use.
It is one of those sneaky diseases that develops over the years, presenting with symptoms that are vast and non-specific. I would have to say that over 80% of my patients have some degree of this fungal infection, many of who believe it is something else going on in their body.
Candida Overgrowth (Thrush)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 »

It has been 70 years since the United States first started adding fluoride to the municipal water supplies. Many legal battles to remove this toxin from our drinking water are in progress, but still this noxious chemical endures as a staple in our daily diet.
Most developed nations in the w...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 »

When cleaning out the refrigerator to make room for the upcoming holiday meal, I came across a most unexpected surprise. This one came in the form of a science experiment.
A container of ice cream was discovered in the freezer. It had been left by the house sitter about a month ago.
Not wanting to make a big leaky mess in the garbage can, I attempted to wash the contents down the kitchen drain by running hot water over the contents. Simple enough one would...Read Full Post »

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 »

Just as the eyes are viewed as the window to the soul, the mouth is viewed as the window to the body.
As a dentist with several decades of clinical experience behind me, I can say this is absolutely true. As to which comes first, dental health or bodily health, it may be difficult to say. But regardless, it is always best to take care of both for super health.
If your mouth is a mess with gum disease, cavities, demineralized teeth or erosion, chances are...Read Full Post »

I guess the title of this post got your attention. Who in their right mind would cook with fluoride? Actually many of you are, and are not even aware of it.
As most of you already know, fluoride is a neurotoxin (destroys nerve cells) and it is found almost everywhere. Even in places that...

Do you sometimes feel that you have done everything possible to get well, yet your chronic illness still prevails? Replaced your mercury fillings? Removed your root canals? Juiced? Raw food vegan diet? Detoxed by every available technique? If you are running out of options, you might consider getting the MTHFR genetic test.

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.

There is growing evidence that Americans would have better health and a lower incidence of cancer and fibrocystic disease of the breast if they consumed more iodine. A decrease in iodine intake coupled with an increased consumption of competing halogens, fluoride and bromide, has created an epidemic of iodine deficiency in America. - Dr. Donald Miller, Jr.
In our age of increasing radioactivity (Fukushima fallout, CAT scans, mammograms, body scanners at airports, x-ra...Read Full Post »

There are approximately 43 muscles in the human face. These muscles are important for showing emotions as well as speaking and eating. It is understandable that many of these can be overused contributing to tightness or underused contributing to sagging.

When Mother Teresa was asked many years ago if she would attend an anti-war rally, her answer was rather profound: I will not be part of an anti-war demonstration. As soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there.

Earthing is a relatively new concept in the field of natural health. It is different than grounding since you actually need to connect to Earth for it to occur. Although many of us have been doing it as a natural course in feeling well, the science of how it works has really not been discovered until recently.

Post Hurricane Sandy has been a bit of a mess in the tri-state area.
Some of us lost electricity for a few days, but others lost so much more. I was one of the lucky ones. Although I had no electric or water at my home, my office was totally operational. With no clients, but a completely functional computer, I got busy.

I just recently returned from a holistic dental meeting and I was surprised to come across a company that has a system that measures cellular nitric oxide levels from a saliva sample.
For those who don’t know, nitric oxide is a free form of gas produced by the cells in our body. It is produced when enzymes in the body break down the amino acid Arginine, and is mainly used for intra-cellular communication.
Nitric oxide is required for key physiologica...Read Full Post »
