Six Important Factors To Take Into Consideration Before Deciding To Place An Implant 

Dental implants are big business. It is estimated that in 2005 almost a million implants were placed in people's mouths in the United States. Today many dentists recommend that a tooth be extracted and replaced by an implant instead of doing a root canal or periodontal surgery.

Readers of this newsletter know that I take a "Whole-Body" approach to dentistry, and am cognizant of the fact that dental problems, and even dental procedures, can affect your overall health. Many of my patients present with problems that take some sleuthing on my part. As I reflect on this past year, I'd like to share a few real-life "Dental Detective Stories". Just a note, some of the diagnostic testing or dental conditions that I write about below have been covered in past newsletters or elsewhere on our website; you can learn more about holistic dentistry, as well as some of the condi

In Part One, (The Importance of Cellular Oxygen), of this newsletter on oxygen I said how I love seeing seemingly unrelated pieces of information coming together, helping to validate one another.

November, 2009

This month, I would like to continue my discussion of the information contained in Brian Peskin's book, "The Hidden Story of Cancer". Some additional research will also be included.

To prevent cancer, adequate cellular oxygen must be maintained. 

September, 2009

I love it when seemingly unrelated pieces of information come together and help validate one another. This is what happened when I studied information on the cause of cancer and suddenly remembered some important information about treating periodontal disease from an article a patient gave me some years ago. This month and next month I would like to share with you the results of my research.

There is a big debate raging about the future of our health care system; health care costs are out of control, and some feel that having the government run healthcare will bring down those costs. I feel that changing the paradigm of medicine and dentistry is the only way to establish a true health-care system, not a disease-care system like we have now.

I have previously mentioned my friend, Dr. Boyd HaleyNot only is Dr. Haley a brilliant biochemist, but he is also a true scientist who bases his thoughts and opinions on science and facts.

During his early years of using homeopathy, Dr. Hahnemann had great success in relieving patients' symptoms. He felt frustrated however, when a number of his patients subsequently returned to him with new symptoms. He noticed that overtime, many slowly progressed downhill. For 12 years, Dr. Hahnemann tirelessly investigated why this was happening. He kept his research secret, even from his closest followers, until he had developed and utilized, with much success, his work on miasms. In 1828, he presented his work in the book, "The Chronic Diseases".

This month I would like to reflect upon observations I have made during my years of practice.

March, 2009

In this newsletter, I would like to discuss lasers, not from a technical point of view, but strictly from a clinical perspective. Lasers in dentistry today are used both to remove tooth structure and to treat periodontal disease. I use two types of lasers, one "hot" and one "cold".

The research I have been doing on water has been fascinating. Last month I discussed two good methods for purifying water, either by reverse osmosis or distillation. These remove the physical impurities from the water, but these methods alone are not enough. The reason for this is that water has "memory". Even though the physical contaminants have been removed, the frequencies of those contaminants still remain.

January, 2009

This month, I would like to continue discussing water. As I concluded last month, I believe that the most economical and best type of drinking water will be that produced by distillation or reverse osmosis.

December, 2008

For years, my family and I have used bottled water for drinking and cooking. In the office we also used bottled water. Because the cost kept escalating, my son, Adam and I investigated filtering tap water. Of course the question has to be asked, "Is any of this necessary, why not just drink tap water?"

This month I will share with you the results of our inquiry.

Alert Regarding Mercury Removal - Check the Mesenchyme

September, 2008

As I mentioned last month, early detection is the best way to ensure survival from prostate cancer. This month I am going to discuss alternative, complementary approaches available for the treatment for prostate cancer. Many of these will also be helpful in preventing cancer.

First of all it is important to avoid refined sugar, refined flour, tobacco, stress, and excessive alcohol. It is also important to sleep in a completely darkened room. (See my past newsletter on the topic of sleep).

You have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Now, what do you do? There is no one right answer; many things need to be factored in.

July, 2008

This month and next I would like to discuss the prostate gland. First, I will explore the symptoms and problems associated with the prostate, especially cancer. Then I will discuss methods of diagnosis and the different types of treatments.

A not-so-fond farewell for mercury fillings

Kudos to the federal Food and Drug Administration on the 180-degree reversal of its 30-year policy of defending so-called "silver" dental fillings. What took the agency so long?
