If there was one concept I could get people to truly understand, It would be that
Dental Health is CRUCIAL to overall Health, as well as Preventing Cancer.
Were dental issues a problem for me? The answer is a resounding YES!!! And guess what? I had really no symptoms at all! AND - no dental procedures that were out of the norm, either in the past or present.
It took me over a year to finish my research on the mouth and dental health when my intuition told me this could be a problem for me, given a few pieces of research I came across, as well as a lecture I heard. This information was not easy to find! I had to search out old timers at conferences, old books, and dentists tucked away quietly correcting issues for their patients that then resulted in better overall health. I had to delve deep into what dentists and orthodontists were taught, what procedures were necessary, and which shouldn't be done at all because they caused prolific bacteria to funnel into the body. There were so many questions I had, with so few answers to find... until I did!
Hopefully you will start your own education now on dental health and the types of dentists near you who will protect you and your family from further harm. Please don't wait until you or a love one is diagnosed with cancer or a severe disease before coming back to this web page. Educate yourself now so further harm isn't done. Trust me on this!

What is Biological Dentistry?
As quoted by the International Academy of Biological Dentistry & Medicine:
"Biological dentistry is concerned with the whole-body effects of all dental materials, techniques and procedures. It is fluoride-free, mercury-free and mercury-safe. Individualized testing for bio-compatibility of dental materials is a must.
It insists that all clinical practice be designed of components that sustain life or improve the patient’s quality of life. For the word 'biological' refers to life.
Clinical awareness and science show us that what happens in the mouth is reflected in the body, and what happens in the body is reflected in the mouth. The complex, dynamic relationships of oral and systemic health within the context of the whole person are inseparable. Biological dentistry unites the best clinical practices and technologies of Western dental medicine with a wide array of practices beyond its horizon.
Biological dental associates may be general dentists, periodontists, orthodontists, oral surgeons or pedodontists. They also have extensive training in dental toxicology and specific modes of healing, including Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Ayurveda, herbology, homeopathy, iridology and energy medicine. While it may be impossible to construct an authoritative list of protocols followed by the 'typical' biological office, all share a common paradigm: treating causes of symptoms rather than symptoms toward the goal of restoring and sustaining health.
We also share a deep and constant belief in the Hippocratic dictate First, do no harm.
Biological dentistry is conservative dentistry. The aim is to be minimally invasive yet appropriately active.
Holistic involves an awareness of dental care as it relates to the entire person."
Which Parts of the Body are Affected by Teeth and their Bacteria?
To see how each and every tooth relates to various organs and systems in the body, visit this dentist's Interactive Tooth Chart HERE.
You will find it fascinating and hopefully get an insight on how important having a healthy mouth actually is. I was shocked as I came to discover how each tooth had so much to do with the rest of the body.
Education on Dental Practices and Procedures
I encourage you to listen to the Dental videos linked below, and to at least look at the titles of the books I have compiled as well, to give you a quick overview of dental practices that could be harmful to your overall health. I received these from the vast library of one of the best dental surgeons in the world, who I consulted with extensively and who I ended up adding to my healing team. You will learn a lot!
