    in Health

    Holistic dentistry also called biological dentistry, biologic dentistry, alternative dentistry, unconventional dentistry, or biocompatible dentistry is the equivalent of complementary and alternative medicine for dentistry. Holistic dentistry emphasizes approaches to dental care said to consider dental health in the context of the patient's entire physical as well as emotional or spiritual health in some cases.

    Although the holistic dental community is diverse in its practices and approaches, common threads include strong opposition to the use of amalgam inmaterials in dental fillings,nonsurgical approaches to gum disease, and the belief that root canals may endanger systemic health of the patient through the spread of trapped dental bacteria to the body. Many dentists who use these terms also regard water fluoridation unfavorably.

    Many practices and opinions among alternative dentists are criticized as not being evidence-based by the mainstream dental community and skeptics of alternative medicine in general. Generally speaking, such dentists charge far more for the same dental treatment compared to mainstream dentists, as they consider themselves to be providing special care.

    Ozone: The Revolution In Dentistry

    in Self Help

    Did you know that compared to the non-invasive treatment that is now possible, most of today’s dentistry is barbarically invasive and has changed little since the 1800’s? Dr. Julian Holmes will share how the use of ozone in dentistry has completely revolutionized the need for “drill, fill and bill” dentistry. He will explain the benefits of what he calls minimally invasive or micro dentistry and how we can actually heal teeth with the purifying effects of ozone, and re-mineralize them.
    Join Paula today, the author of Heal Yourself With Oxygen, as she joins world renowned expert, Dr. Julian Holmes, author of Ozone: Revolution In Dentistry, and president of IAOHD, as they explore a number of issues including the dangers of amalgam fillings and root canals, how fluoride mottles the teeth, and how current dental practices actually contribute to a number of serious medical problems such as breast cancer, kidney problems and other degenerative disease. 
    To help change your entire view of dentistry, Paula and Julian will include an EFT protocol, to clear some of your old dental programs and actually help you reframe your attitude toward dental health from one of crisis intervention, to that of prevention.
