"Doc, I can't thank you enough. I have lots of energy and my mind is clear, and I was able to return to work after a year's absence."Is this a patient talking to his medical doctor? No, he is talking to a dentist who practices holistic, or what I like to call Whole-Body Dentistry®. A Whole-Body Dentist recognizes the inseparable relationship between the mouth and the rest of the body. A traditional dentist is taught to look in the mouth for signs of diabetes, anemia, oral cancer, or other pathologies.
"The Field" by Lynne McTaggart chronicles the quantum physics research, which shows that this vast field of interconnectedness has no boundaries in space or time. Because there are no boundaries in space or time, the past, present, and even the future can be ascertained. One can no longer think in 2D or even 3D. These ideas are interesting, but what is the relevance for us on a daily basis?
Many years ago I read about Edgar Cayce's ability to enter into a hypnotic state, wherein he "connected" to someone in order to assess a health problem and recommend treatment. Many call this voodoo or just plain nonsense.
Several months ago my friend, Dr. Stephen Sinatra, gave me a book called "Earthing". Steve is a co-author of the book, and he has been telling me about the concepts behind "Earthing" and the wonderful stories of people who have benefited from applying to their own health the principles explained in the book.
An interesting article in the Tuesday, March 15th, edition of the Wall St. Journal prompted me to do further research. The article discussed using plants to detoxify indoor air.
Last month I discussed my decision to make an appointment with Dr. Robert Bard for a prostate exam using his 3D Color Doppler Ultrasound. Given that my PSA levels were consistently low, I was stunned when that test revealed that I had an advanced case of prostate cancer with a possible metastasis. After the initial shock wore off, I reflected upon the things I knew about cancer.
I have written in the past about prostate cancer and about the use of a noninvasive technology called 3D color Doppler ultrasound for the diagnosis of prostate cancer and for the monitoring of the prostate. This month I wish to explain why I believe that this special ultrasound should replace the PSA test and the digital examination.
I am very concerned about the fact that so many of my patients and friends are taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs. These are dangerous drugs, and they are being handed out like candy. They are even being prescribed for people with cholesterol values in the 190-200 range. This is absurd.
Much of what we do at the Breiner Centre for Whole-Body Health is energy-based. This month I am interviewing my son, naturopathic physician, Dr. Adam Breiner, about his energetic method for treating allergies.
While I have written about cavitations in the past, this month I want to review this important topic and give an update on my experience in treating them.
A cavitation is a hole in the bone, often where a tooth has been previously extracted. Cavitations can occur in any bone in the body, but are most frequently found in the jawbones. The part of the jawbone where these cavitations are most often found is the wisdom tooth area. These cavitation lesions are like cesspools, containing necrotic (dead) bone, bacteria, viruses, fungi and even mercury.
This past week I viewed a screening of a new documentary called "Full Signal". The film dealt with the potential hazards of cell phones, cell phone towers and antennas. I was invited to the screening by my friend and patient, Camilla Rees, who is a driving force behind the dissemination of information related to all forms of electromagnetic pollution.
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 condit
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.
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.
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 Haley. Not only is Dr. Haley a brilliant biochemist, but he is also a true scientist who bases his thoughts and opinions on science and facts.
