Germs

People More Concerned About Germs On Their Hands Than Germs In Their Mouths

You might think that in an increasingly germ-o-phobic nation, people would take extra care to eliminate oral disease-causing germs from their mouths, but you'd be wrong. Nearly 80 percent of people in America feel concerned about germs on their hands yet only 66 percent worry about germs in their mouth.

Headache - Go to the Dentist It Could Be Your Teeth

Oh how I hate it when I get a headache, the crushing pain in my temples, eyes that feel like they are about to fall out of my face and throbbing that makes me think my head might just explode! A headache has me quickly reaching for a pain killer and a lie down in a quiet darkened room with a soothing eye pillow on my brow until the headache subsides.

Gum Disease & Anaemia

Gum Disease Linked to Anaemia

A new study suggests that severe gum disease (chronic periodontitis) may cause a reduction in red blood cells and haemoglobin leading to the blood disorder anaemia. As a holistic and esoteric dentist I have been saying for years that gum health and the health of the blood are very closely related as the gums reflect the level of vitality in the body.

Alcohol and Cancer

Alcohol – Is It Doing You Good or Doing You Harm?

I have for many years now taken the position that alcohol is a poison and causes serious harm to the body. I have felt that it is incredibly misleading for science and doctors to tell people that it is OK to have a glass of wine or two a day as it is good for heart health when they do not consider the damage the alcohol is doing to people’s bodies.

Calcium and Dairy

Seeing as I do dentistry for a living it's not surprising that I am often asked about calcium and whether to take supplements or not, or whether drinking more milk is the answer. Personally I do not recommend calcium supplementation as it is easy to consume enough calcium from our diet via green vegetables, seaweed, nuts and seeds and so forth. Notice I did not mention milk or diary in my suggestions. Now there is a good reason for this and that is whilst dairy may contain calcium it is not adequately absorbed by your body.
