Darien sits along Connecticut’s “gold coast,” the wealthy New York City bedroom communities that boast parks, beaches, and country clubs. Situated along the Boston Post Road, the low taxes and high recreation opportunities make the hamlet a haven from the rigors of city employment.
When cool ocean breezes and various town celebrations can’t do enough to maintain a healthy mind and body, the Breiner Whole-Body Health Center in nearby Fairfield stands ready to help using modern technology embracing the ancient holistic arts to achieve the best possible results for body, mind, and spirit.
Most people understand that proper nutrition is vital to good health, but many are shocked to learn how many health crises can begin in the mouth. Dental research conducted over the last 100 years has verified the connection between poor oral health and a Pandora’s box of serious problems.
Holistic dentistry, also called Integrative Dentistry, begins with a comprehensive dental exam that includes both your dental and medical history, a 3D CAT Scan to evaluate airway problems, hidden infections, cavitations, root canals, and more. Other dental concerns are assessed, and specific treatment is recommended to address these problems. For example, mercury is the most toxic heavy metal, many dental patients want their mercury amalgam fillings replaced. Removing even one filling from people who are already ill, or near their toxic threshold, can make the individual sick unless the practitioner takes proper steps before, during, and after mercury amalgam removal. We evaluate how your body is handling the toxins you have absorbed, safely remove mercury fillings, and help you detoxify afterward.
We evaluate abnormal jaw development in children and offer interceptive Orthopedic/Orthodontic treatment to influence your child’s proper jaw development. If uncorrected in childhood, this problem can lead to TMD in adulthood with all its attendant problems, including migraines, sleep apnea, etc. People with sleep apnea have a higher incidence of stroke, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, cancer, and dementia!
We assess Sleep Breathing Disorders in adults, a situation where you are not getting enough oxygen. An at-home Sleep Study Test to screen for apnea is available in our office for adults. We also offer orthodontic treatment and orthopedic repositioning of jaws in adults to improve health.
Dental health is core to good health; however, dental procedures can have a profound negative impact on the body when done excessively or improperly. Conversely, when dentistry is done in a whole-body manner, the positive effects on one’s health can be dramatic.
Whether or not your teeth need attention, the Whole-Body Health Center’s holistic approach offers numerous options to enhance your chances for long, active life. Like the teeth, cognitive health is often overlooked as a health concern. Good brain performance is essential; the NeuroEdge Brain Performance Center treats head injuries and traumas (concussion and stroke) and helps others improve their general performance at home, work, in class or on the playing field. Neurofeedback, EEG brain imaging, neurocognitive testing, cranial osteopathy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and the Center’s other therapies work to assist anyone in sharpening his or her brain function. Among the treatments, testing, and services available:
Neurotransmitter Testing — imbalances in neurotransmitters can cause the brain and body to become over- or under-stimulated, producing neurological or psychological symptoms. Neurotransmitter Testing reveals if you are among the 86 percent of Americans who have suboptimal neurotransmitter levels.
NutrEval Plasma® Testing — an advanced nutritional analysis that reveals nutritional imbalances and inadequacies. This test helps us provide targeted treatment for your particular needs and speeds your recovery from complex chronic conditions like depression and anxiety, fatigue, chronic inflammation, cardiovascular risk, weight issues, and more.
Alfa Sight 9000 Medical Thermometry — analyzing skin temperature for early detection of diseases like diabetes, liver or endocrine function, cardiac efficiency, neuromuscular issues, or pulmonary function.
IV Solutions Therapy — replenish water and essential nutrients lost through daily activity. Our IV infusions target needs that your body may require in times of stress or sickness, or whenever you need a health boost. Custom drips support your immune system, improve athletic recovery and performance, increase energy, improve brain health, aid in detoxification, provide anti-aging benefits, and more.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) — by sending tiny electrical currents and impulses throughout the cells of your body, this “battery charger” treatment helps draw toxins out, affording pain relief, increased range of motion, more energy and a greater sense of wellbeing.
More and more people are unsatisfied at merely being “the patient”; they are taking control of their personal and family healthcare decisions and seek to become partners with their healthcare providers. Armed with Internet research, individuals visit their doctors more knowledgeable about the human body.
They know that “latest and greatest” practices aren’t always either. New research demonstrates that millennia-old formulas are as good or better than modern medicine’s love affair with pharmacopeia (man-made chemicals), which don’t always provide the most effective healthcare options. With Breiner’s complementary mix of ancient and modern practices in medicine and dentistry, the people of Darien and the surrounding communities can look forward to a warm and welcoming experience.
