Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body

Screen shot 2014-04-10 at 10.55.30 AM

A holistic dental practice is not just about filling teeth; it’s about integrating the mouth with the rest of the body. For example, if you have gum disease, your chance of having a heart attack or stroke is two-and-a-half times greater than someone who doesn’t. This is because disease-causing bacteria release toxins into the bloodstream, prompting the liver to secrete C-reactive proteins, which cause arterial inflammation. You can brush and floss forever, but you will not get rid of plaque unless you start changing your body’s chemistry. Most people are too acidic. Acidity is one of the main reason we get sick. Your dentist should be helping you modify your diet, which with proper supplementation can change your acid/base balance to a more healthy alkaline state.

Guest Blog by Kristin Hoffmann

Music has been a guiding, transformative and mystical presence in my life for as long as I can remember.

I knew, even then, that music was a vehicle that could take me places beyond the tangible world I saw around me. I felt a deeper connection to Source ignited within, a remembrance of a infinite soul energy that we all share and the subconscious acknowledgement that my life would be largely dedicated to using music as a powerful tool to inspire others.
