Jeff W. - Dental Patient
My name is Jeff Winter, I’m 47 years old. I initially came to Natural Horizons to have a mercury filling removed, which actually is an important thing to do and there is a special process for that. Once I had the filling removed I asked to have a consultation with Dr. Johnson which led to more concerns and questions related to my teeth and overall health.
My experience here, in particular my relationship with Dr. Johnson, has helped me learn more about the integrated approach to medicine. And I don’t like using the word holistic because for some reason people don’t really understand and I think integrated medicine is the right term to use, especially given what that means. And when I’ve had treatment here there’s always bee something else that Dr. Johnson has advised that I should probably think about doing; especially when you are sitting in a chair for two-and-a-half hours. One of them was getting cranial treatment on my head, which was something I had never thought of before, but in terms of your bite and how that works and making sure your bite is correct because if things are off in your mouth, I’ve learned that it can set a whole string of things in motion.
So I took his advice and did some cranial massage therapy that luckily they had here and I didn’t have to go anywhere else for it, it was right here, that really enhanced the way I felt.
I think that is part and parcel of the entire approach here, which for dentistry, for example, you get the best of traditional dentistry plus you get the integrated approach to medicine. And what I’ve learned about integrated medicine is that you’re looking for the cause of problems in your body, not the symptoms and in traditional medicine, unfortunately, we’re not quite there yet. And we tend to treat the symptoms versus the core problem first.
I highly recommend coming into Natural Horizons for dentistry work. As I said before, it’s the best of traditional medicine, plus you get the integrated approach as well. So, if you’re looking for a dentist that is not just looking at your teeth, but want to look beyond your health and make sure that your entire body is functioning properly, I highly recommend coming to Natural Horizons and seeing Dr. Johnson. It’s just a different experience all together. You get the best of both worlds.
