Today’s blog is a true life story. Dr. S had an illness in the early 1980s that worsened when he took a conventional medication. He went on a quest to recover his health. He attended seminars on alternative dentistry and medicine and saw 16 different health care practitioners. He made many discoveries during his quest. Be it conventional or alternative care, he found that many offices did not take time to listen to the patient. Some doctors gave a medication, prescribed an herb or did an adjustment without getting to know the person. Of the sixteen practitioners that he saw, three made a huge difference. One doctor was a cranial osteopathic physician who took the time to listen, and her healing hands created a shift that can still be felt today. The second was a dentist who took out all of his silver amalgam fillings, resulting in an immediate and profound change in his symptoms. One symptom in particular was ice cold hands and feet which went back to normal overnight. The third doctor was a physician who deeply listened to him and then helped him learn to meditate and bring fun back into his life. This is the story of my recovery, which took a year and a half. The learning has lasted a lifetime. I became a constant student of the body, mind and spirit. I explored many types of body work by having treatment. Acupuncture, cranial sacral treatment, reiki, feldencrias, massage, various types of physical therapy, chiropractic, trigger point therapy, homeopathy, Chinese herbal treatments, rebirthing, yoga, qi gong, affirmations and others were all part of my quest. I learned from German physicians and dentists about electroaccupunture and energy medicine. I also studied with the best dentists who were on the same path. I’ve distilled the essence of my ongoing learning into my work. I created a dental practice that was about more than just the teeth, a practice in which all of my team members work for a common goal: your overall health and well-being. As well as a dental practice we are a resource center to help people look better, feel better and be healthier.
