Taking Responsibility for Health
April 1, 2021 | View PDF
To be healthy people, we must recognize the facts and be responsible. Genetics may be involved. Lifestyle and nutritional choices are factors we must control. To assume that all food we purchase in the marketplace is nutritious, nourishing or good for us is a mistake. To believe a pharmaceutical medicine automatically addresses the cause of an illness may also be incorrect. Pharmaceutical medicine commonly does not address the causes of illness; in most cases, it addresses the symptoms.
There is no solution in any government mandated healthcare legislation. Our governing agencies are arguing about money and control, not wellness. An affordable wellness system implemented would address the true cause or disease. It would educate. It would address the relationship between the FDA, the food industry, the pharmaceutical industry and the centralized medical industry initiated and controlled be John D. Rockefeller in the early 20th century to present.
With access to information thru the Internet, more and more people are willing and wanting to sift thru the misinformation to discuss the truth.
More and more health care providers are also looking for cause. These are valuable people. They are courageous to stand in the establishment and seek, when there can be conflict between what they were taught and what they find. I know because many physicians are open to alternatives and I work with them.
I have found new truths in dentistry that are in conflict with what I was taught decades ago. Things do change, but so slow. All I can say is be responsible to your self. Do not assume others will. Many people come to my office seeking second opinions, I see many diverse situations, and I offer this advice. In choosing your healthcare provider consider 4 questions. First; what education did the provider have and continue to have? Second; How much experience do they have? Third, very important what is their agenda? Fourth; What does your intuitive heart tell you? Remember the title "Doctor" does not mean healer. Only God Heals! "Doctor" means leader and/or teacher. I teach our patients that the least treatment that achieves the desired result is the best treatment. I believe this is true dentistry and medicine.
If you come to our office expect a warm, caring reception. Also expect a lot of attention on your total body health as I know you cannot have oral health with illness elsewhere. Oral health and total body health cannot be separated. Poor gum health has been associated with diabetes, heart disease, inflammatory diseases, osteoporosis and others. I do not practice medicine. I practice dentistry and work with physicians who know and appreciate the value to the patient when a dentist and physician work together to achieve oral health and total body health.
