In my last newsletter I promised to share with you some case studies and the results of treatment with the Sankaran method. I hope you find these interesting and that they help you to appreciate the beauty of homeopathy.
Last month I discussed my strategy of treating on two levels, the outer physical level (the level of toxins, mercury fillings, bad bite, etc.) and the inner energetic level. (For a greater understanding of this month's newsletter, please read Part One; Why Some Holistic Dentists

Have you ever heard the idiom, "To act like a canary in a coal mine?" Canaries were used in coal mines to warn the miners of the presence of dangerous methane gas.

If you missed Part One, or would like to Review Part One, click here for last month’s newsletter.

Imagine being so frightened of visiting the dentist that you endure a toothache. For some people this is a reality. Others may quell their fear enough to get themselves to the dentist's office, but the visit is an emotionally excruciating ordeal. For people like these, Conscious Sedation Dentistry (CSD) is a blessing. What is CSD?
A recently released study1 has created a lot of controversy concerning dental X-rays. The study indicated that there was an increase in a type of cancerous brain tumor that correlated with an increased number of dental X-rays.
