Our practice is built on the biological approach to dental hygiene care. In holistic medicine it requires taking responsibility for maintaining all aspects of our well-being. Our thoughts, beliefs and feelings affect the body by activating a biochemical reaction. The fundamental theory of German biological medicine is that the body will function in a healthy manner after the burden of tissue toxicity is removed. The oral systemic connection is the link between the health of your mouth and your overall health. Did you know that gum disease may be linked with increased risk for; pre-term low birth weight babies, heart disease, stroke, respiratory diseases including pneumonia, cancer and possibly Alzheimer’s disease!
Holistic oral health takes into consideration how nutrition, our thoughts, environment, lifestyle and our genetics all play a role in disease progression and prevention. Therefore, referral to other health care professionals such as Naturopathic physicians, Holistic Nutritionists, Massage Therapists, Physiotherapists, Physicians, Reflexologists, Accupuncturists, Homeopaths, and others may be recommended.
