Learn about holistic dentistry for better health
Close-Up-Mouth-Dental-Exam-Mirror.jpg  To maintain good health, it is crucial to minimize our exposure to toxins. Therefore, we should consult the right doctor when we need one, opt for fresh organic foods, and be careful with the cleaning and cosmetic products we use. But did you know that choosing the right holistic dentist for yourself and your family is no less important than having a good and honest doctor?

What many people don't realize is that the health of our teeth and gums is the forerunner for the health of the rest of our body. One dentist, Dr. Idelle S. Brand, experienced this first-hand when she was diagnosed with Lyme disease.

When conventional doctors told her that the disease was incurable and she'd better consider going on a permanent disability pension, she decided to take matters into her own hands and found alternative ways to regain her health. She said that she was able to get past the disease by detoxing her body. Her method worked so well that she wrote a book about it - "My Secrets to Regaining Health."

Holistic dentistry. What's it all about?

In Midtown Manhattan, Dr. Brand runs The Brand Wellness Center which brings a unique and holistic approach to dentistry. She usually treats patients with chronic illnesses that have no common medical cure. According to Dr. Brand, patients have experienced that everything that is happening in their mouth is related to their overall body health.

"When you make that connection you can start turning around chronic illnesses," Dr. Brand told The Epoch Times.

A consultation usually includes aromatherapy and healing sound frequencies. You can also opt to hold special rocks that absorb stress during a dental procedure. Furthermore, she'll teach you about how the organs and meridians relate to each one of your teeth before releasing you from her care after a free 2-minute meditation session to balance your energy fields.

Why you should consider dental detoxing for better health

As stated by Dr. Brand, toxins are constantly wreaking havoc on our system and contribute to autoimmune diseases. Nonetheless, the importance of toxins in teeth and the rest of the body is often overlooked and ignored in conventional medicine and dentistry.

She added that until people remove these toxins from their body, it is going to be difficult to get well. When you free your body from toxins you put less stress on the immune system so your body can start functioning better.

If you still have teeth with a mercury filling, the first step to better health is to remove the mercury-leaching source and then nurture your body back to health by removing mercury and other toxins through proper nutrition.

Apart from safely removing these toxic fillings, Dr. Brand noted that people should be extra careful and make sure the dentist replaces them with white fillings that are fluoride and bisphenol A (BPA) free. There is no point in replacing one toxin with another.

Simple ways to detox the rest of the body

When you removed the toxin-leaching sources from your body, the next step is to rid the whole body of these damaging compounds. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you out.

  • Filter your water to avoid fluoride and heavy metals
  • Opt for fluoride-free toothpaste
  • Take salt water bath twice a week to help your body remove heavy metals through the skin
  • Opt for fluoride-free baby formula
  • Eliminate processed foods from your diet
  • Eat a diet rich in chlorophyll-containing foods such as green vegetables
  • Consume real, whole foods in their most natural state
  • Practice oil pulling once a day to pull toxins from gum tissue in the mouth

Furthermore, Dr. Brand recommends a routine saliva pH screening. This test is a general measure of overall health. Also, people should go easy on grains and nuts as she has noticed that people who regularly consume these foods have more cavities and fragile teeth.
