The mouth reflects what happens in the body, and the body reflects what is going on in the mouth. Biological dentistry is an approach to oral care that accounts for the dynamic relationship between the mouth and the rest of the body. Biological dentistry goes beyond the traditional – and often mindlessly mechanical – approach of filling cavities, removing plaque and pulling teeth. Instead, the innovative approach of biological dentistry treats the oral cavity as one part of the larger body....

Keeping your smile healthy and attractive requires dedicated, daily care. However, even with the best brushing habits, you could be causing serious damage to your smile without knowing it. Here are common habits you should avoid in order to keep your teeth healthy.

Excessive grinding

Many people grind or clench their teeth when they are nervous, stressed or sleeping. When this behavior persists, it can wear down teeth, fracture teeth and even ruin past dental work. Many people who...

Intravenous vitamin therapy can help to boost a person's immune system by delivering vitamins, minerals and herbs directly to the blood stream, where they can be carried to cells to promote healthy cell division and growth. IV vitamin therapy can also be the cornerstone of a holistic cancer treatment program. Most people only get about 10 to 25 percent of the nutrients they need naturally from the food and drink they consume. Cancer patients often get less than this due to nausea and fatigue...

The Affordable Care Act (a.k.a., Obamacare) has raised many questions for individuals seeking health insurance. Even among those that understand what it means for their medical insurance, some may wonder what their dental insurance options are under the Affordable Care Act. Although each state's program is somewhat different, all 50 states allow for citizens to purchase dental coverage in conjunction with their health insurance plan. The best aspect of this part of the program is that...

The traditional wisdom has always been that patients and survivors should get as much rest as possible. Just relax until your body heals completely. Rushing back into an active lifestyle could actually jeopardize your health. But exercise for cancer patients can be as important as medical treatment and nutrition. Recent studies suggest increased physical activity is precisely what the body needs – both during cancer treatment and afterward, in recovery. Regular exercise not only results in...

With cautious optimism, you can finally celebrate the fact that you’re a cancer survivor. Now begins the recovery process. But for many, this recovery can last longer and be more difficult than the cancer treatment itself.

How do you transition back into a normal life? In fact, what does “normal” even mean now?

There is no universal roadmap or timeline, and “normal” means different things to different people. But you can lean on the collective experience of those who preceded you and...

Like any life-changing event, cancer treatment can dramatically affect your lifestyle. From body changes to changes in how we relate to others, the lifestyle changes during cancer treatment can be significant. If you are a patient, you may experience one or more of the following lifestyle changes:

Increase in doctor visits, hospital stays, and medical appointments, resulting in missed time at work, school, and social activities. Self image struggles due to hair loss, weight changes,...

The relationship between excess body weight and cancer risk has been known for quite some time. Yet, approximately two out of three American’s are still classified as overweight or obese. Overweight and obesity rates continue to soar because of poor nutrition and a lack of physical activity which, according to the American Cancer Society, relates to one in three deaths from cancer. This can possibly be attributed to overly-large food portion sizes, poor dietary choices and a simple lack of...

Aromatherapy is a natural therapy useful for migraine relief, easing nausea, reducing stress and much more. Aromatherapy has even been used as part of a holistic cancer treatment approach, especially as a means of easing the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Mother Nature has countless aromas, many of which can be found in your garden. How many of the flower, herbs and plants used in aromatherapy do you recognize?
