"Winner! 2012 Global E-Book Awards" -Medicine and Healthcare Did You Know There Is More to Dentistry Than Just Your Mouth? Most of us are familiar with the traditional “mouth-only” orientation of dentistry, which is focused on oral hygiene, fillings, and extractions. Whole-Body Dentistry represents a shift away from this traditional approach to dentistry and offers what some feel is a revolutionary view of dentistry—one that recognizes that issues in the mouth can trigger seemingly unrelated physical illnesses. Dr. Breiner clearly explains the concepts in this comprehensive—yet very readable—guide and reference. Topics covered build upon each other and are crossed referenced throughout the book for clarity. This valuable information will help patients make better and more informed dental-treatment choices. The book provides: • Clear, concise, vital information for the consumer • Addresses the impact of traditional dental procedures on total health • Explains new diagnostic tools and treatment protocols • Shares “Dental Detective Stories” to illustrate key topics • Includes important Dental Meridian Chart & explores the energetic paradigm of dentistry • Offers resources/websites for finding dentists, physicians, products & services Valuable and necessary information for both consumers and health practitioners. “Finalist – Book of the Year Awards” – Foreword Review

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.

Kim had been an enthusiastic college student, creative, athletic and energetic. That changed in her junior year of college. After the removal of her four wisdom teeth, Kim began to suffer from unexplained health problems: recurring pneumonia, debilitating fatigue, brain fog, unexplained rashes and swollen lymph nodes that would not go away. Over the next thirty years her doctors would diagnose Kim with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Epstein-Barr virus and even lymphoma, but they did not really know. Kim shares her thirty-year journey to regain her health and vitality. Kim's belief in her body's ability to heal led her to work with a remarkable biological dentist. It was with the help of this controversial approach to dentistry that Kim's body could finally heal, restoring her to full health. Her revealing and intimate story portrays the little understood and overlooked importance that the mouth plays in over-all health and well-being. At The Root is Kim's story of the necessity to trust and believe in yourself. She reminds us of the importance of taking responsibility for our health as well as managing our own lives.

The Complementary Therapist's Guide to Conventional Medicine E-Book

A Textbook and Study Course

Page: 752

The Complementary Therapist's Guide to Conventional Medicine is a unique textbook for students and practitioners of complementary medicine, offering a systematic comparative approach to Western and Eastern medicine. Practitioners of complementary medicine increasingly find themselves working alongside conventionally trained doctors and nurses and it is vital for them to develop a core understanding of conventional medical language and philosophy. The book is designed as a guide to understanding conventional medical diagnoses, symptoms and treatments, whilst also encouraging the reader to reflect on and translate how these diagnoses may be interpreted from a more holistic medical perspective. Throughout the text the practitioner/student is encouraged to see that conventional and more holistic interpretations are not necessarily contradictory, but instead are simply two different approaches to interpreting the same truth, that truth being the patient's symptoms. After introductory sections on physiology, pathology and pharmacology, there follow sections devoted to each of the physiological systems of the body. In these, the physiology of each system is explored together with the medical investigation, symptoms and treatments of the important diseases which might affect that system. As each disease is described, the reader is encouraged to consider the corresponding Chinese medical perspective. The textbook concludes with chapters relating specifically to dealing with patients in practice. In particular these focus on warning signs of serious disease, supporting patients on medication and ethical issues which may arise from management of patients which is shared with conventional practitioners. The book also offers a detailed summary of 'Red Flag symptoms' which are those which should be referred for 'Western' medical investigation or emergency medical treatment, and also a guide to how patients can be safely supported in withdrawing from conventional medication, when this is clinically appropriate. Those wishing to use the text for systematic study can make use of the question and problem-solving approach offered on the accompanying CD to which references to self study exercises appear at regular stages throughout the book. This means that the text can be easily adapted to form the basis of a study course in clinical medicine for students of complementary medicine. In addition to the self-testing questions and answers, the supporting CD also contains checklists for revision and full-colour illustrations. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Clare Stephenson is a qualified medical practitioner who worked in hospital medicine, general practice and public health medicine for a number of years before training in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and acupuncture. Over the course of a decade she developed and taught an undergraduate course for students of Chinese medicine on Western medicine and how it relates to TCM. She is particularly committed to encouraging communication and understanding between practitioners of different health disciplines. She currently works as a GP in Oxfordshire.
