You may want to look at some common health conditions that affect hair loss.

A swish a day to keep the doctor away? Well, at the very least a swishing of organic oil (coconut, sesame, or sunflower) daily--also know as oil pulling can provide many healthy benefits.

Oil pulling, also known as "kavala" or "gundusha" is an ancient Ayurvedic technique started in India thousands of years ago. It was reintroduced in the 1990's by Dr. F. Karach.

This subject is near and dear to my heart. I have been a musician for the last 14 years and the Lord has used this in my life to help bring balance to my brain. At one point in my life, I thought I would be some rock star traveling the world but the Lord had a better plan. My life took a big turn when I was 16, when I gave up music and pursued the Lord wholeheartedly. This pursuit of laying music down gave me a new relationship when I picked it back up. I went from a rock guitar player to playing melodies and writing songs that would minister to people. I had no idea until I made this switch why music and sound was so important to God. Whether it’s trumpet blasts that destroyed the walls of Jericho or the very act of God’s creation beginning with sound speaking the world into existence.

After waking up this morning to a massive storm that blew through our town, I was inspired to write this blog. While I was growing up, my stepmom, who I liked to call my spiritual mom, Doris, used to tell me that a good storm clears the air. She taught me this lesson through the context of arguments and debates between two people.

In our society today, I think that we are taught to not confront one another especially in light of social media and texting. Today I want us to learn about healthy confrontation and how this can radically change your life. This blog goes out to you Mamma Doris.

I had so much acne and so many skin conditions when I was in my teens, I thought I was doomed forever until I learned the secret to beautiful skin. Guess what - it wasn’t Proactive!

The highly effective and controversial medicine of the 21st century is homeopathic. Homeopathy has been practiced over the past 200 years. Homeopathy is the scientific practice of diluting medicinal herbs and increasing their vibratory frequency so that our body reacts to the substance without getting any toxic substance of the plant phytochemicals. I have experienced some pretty powerful effects from the use of these substances, and have also found that some people don’t respond very well to homeopathy. The people who don’t respond well usually believe that the science behind homeopathy is invalid, and do not think it works. Some people also don’t have a really strong constitution and the subtle vibratory frequencies are not strong enough to penetrate their bodies to make a strong physiological change. Medicine works better if you believe in it. Hopefully after reading today's blog I can convince you that homeopathy is a real scientific and powerful medicine. We will explore formulations, and common formulas.

I used to think that drinking milk wasn’t good for my body, but I was so wrong. The 3-4 glasses of milk I was drinking each day was pasteurized, homogenized, and hormonal-filled. When I was drinking this kind of milk I was sick, had constant allergies, and suffered from constipation – now that doesn’t sound like a healthy drink! It took me years to realize that I was drinking the wrong kind of milk, and that I should be drinking raw, fresh milk from cows. The first time I tried raw milk I had a profound realization - I had no allergic reaction to it. So what is the difference between the milk I was drinking compared to raw milk? Let’s explore milk and find out how it can really benefit our health.

Let’s explore how incorporating primal principles into our everyday lives can make us healthier and stronger.

I’ve been researching a lot lately about how to burn fat, sugar, and carbohydrates as your body’s main source of fuel. I found that it is very possible to retrain your body to use fat as its main fuel source through a Ketogenic diet.

I started my personal journey off slowly by finding ways I could incorporate more fat into my diet. I know you’re probably thinking “why do I have to eat a stick of butter when I crave sugar?” However, the switch to a Ketogenic diet is gradual, and may be worth dealing with these cravings.

In all my researching, I have yet to find another nutrient that has been more studied than Omega-3s. When I say Omega-3, I mean the oils that come from fish, chia, flax, hemp, and algae. These oils have an ability to radically change someone’s life. Omega-3s are an essential nutrient that our bodies cannot produce on their own. There is an epidemic in America of Omega-3 deficiency, which causes excess inflammation. The standard American diet is rich in inflammatory oils like cottonseed oil, canola oil, hydrogenated oils, and margarine, which is the fat used to make processed foods. Let’s explore how we can consume Omega-3s in our diet and supplements. Let’s oil the machine.

yams or sweet potatoes

Root vegetables are one of the most powerful weapons in the nutrition world. We hear a lot about the power of greens, but we need more roots in our diets and here’s why: Roots are very grounding, warming to the body, and are loaded with minerals and antioxidants. Many of my favorite herbs that I use daily are roots. Let’s explore some of my favorites - some you will know, some you may not know.

Facts about Wheatgrass

I consider the gross spinach and collard greens we were forced to eat as kids as the unsung heroes of nutrition. I never understood the importance of "eating your greens" and the health benefits they provided until I began to eat them a lot. Living in a very toxic and acidic world, we are surrounded by green plants. These green plants should remind us of the power to oxygenate and cleanse our bodies of the daily toxic waste. Let’s explore the forms, benefits, and ways to consume these superfoods.

Fulvic humic acid

In my own nutritional journey, I came across two nutrients that have radically changed my life. Humic and Fulvic acids are a form of concentrated plant minerals that help the body detoxify and nitrify at the same time. When I began to take them 6 years ago, my body craved it so much! I was really mineral deficient, as are most Americans. Minerals play such a huge role in every single body process and are used as our electrical connections, giving us energy. Let’s explore the vast range of benefits you can look forward to taking this amazing substance.

Detox Your Body Chart

Over the years I have had the privilege to try multiple ways of advance detoxing. This method of detox can be a little jarring to the system so let’s also explore ways to make the process more gentle, but still effective. The main focus of an advance detox is to ensure that on the deepest cellular level waste, toxins, bad hormones, and scar tissue are removed from the body. If we began to adopt some of these detox methods we can expect our body’s to begin to heal themselves.

healthy detox

Detoxification is a lost art in our day. We live in a very toxic environment with more pesticides, herbicides, poor soil, and not to mention the poor quality of the Standard American Diet. It’s important to find a daily practice at home to promote a safe and gentle detox in the body. I want to start by saying that a clean diet, clean water, and exercise are the foundation to any detox regimen - we will explore this and more today.

In my years of research no other nutrient can help your body overcome such a vast amount of issues. When you think of iodine you probably think Morton’s iodized salt which is not a source of iodine at all. In ancient cultures iodine was consumed through seaweed and sea salt consumption which was much higher in those days we didn’t have the amount of pollution and over harvesting like we have today. So how do we get iodine in our diet today? Let’s explore the many we can use iodine as it has to be the most versatile of all supplements.

magnesium and oxygen therapy

In all my study of health and nutrition there is one master mineral that is not talked about more than magnesium. When you go from having a magnesium deficiency to having plenty in your system you can experience many health benefits that it will amaze you. Americans are the most deficient in the mineral due to our poor soil quality and a lack of raw fruit and vegetable intake. If you’re stressed daily, crave sweet foods, consume soda, or coffee you can bet your experiencing symptoms of a deficiency without knowing.

The mother baby dyad is where we evaluate function, not the oral cavity. How do we support the nursing dyad, support healing and normalize function?

Compensatory feeding even at the breast is not a sufficient goal to support health and healing and so many babies struggle unnecessarily through early life in this manner. Moms often know something isn’t right but they may not know how to fix it. An infant who fails to compensate effectively is at risk for starvation, detachment, poor growth and development, risk to immunity and well-being.

An infant who compensates is at risk of compensatory behaviors and integrated neurological patterning is less than ideal. Full function and competency can only be restored when baby is exclusively breastfeeding functionally.

When baby is compensating, we must intervene. An example of compensation is a baby with sunken cheeks and high suction. That is not right. Due to a poor latch, the baby has to work harder, suction harder to get milk. Compensations may weaken physiology, emotional well-being, etc. Compensations require a large...

wblogtummy time.jpg

The ventral surface refers to the front half of the body. Tummy time means being on the ventral surface or being on your belly.

When babies are not given an appropriate amount of tummy time, what are the issues we see? Babies with a tongue tie have a midline defect, often demonstrating a wide variety of issues, which can affect the breastfeeding relationship. These babies can also have asymmetries, restricted movement and inhibited reflexes. We want to elongate the anterior (front plane) myofascial body, in contrast to gestational physiologic flexion leading to soft tissue contractures. In other words, when babies are in the womb, they are curled forward in a ball. Some babies can be born with restrictions and imbalances potentially resulting in a host of issues.

What are the advantages of tummy time and elongating the anterior aspect of the body? It resolves torticollis, which is a twisted neck and can happen due to positioning in the womb or after a difficult childbirth. Every single baby has a head preference, which leads to head turning problems. Head turning...

lip tie.jpg

The new breastfeeding Dyad is mom and baby, not lip and tongue. So, when providers are doing the exam, we are not just looking at lip and tongue, we are looking at the baby.

Historically, after tongues of babies were released, some still had problems. Observation of babies nursing revealed that there was no upper lip flange. So, providers started releasing lip ties with great success. It is important on the clinical exam to check suck by placing the index finger in baby’s mouth. If baby bites or gums the doctor’s nail, he is biting mom’s breast and has a poor latch. Breastfeeding should be enjoyable, not painful. The upper and lower lip must flange for a latch that encompasses the areola, not the nipple. Watch baby nurse, rub nipple over lip and baby opens mouth. Don’t torpedo nipple into baby’s mouth and closely watch pre and post procedure nursing. Additionally, providers sometimes recommend that anesthetic be avoided because we want baby to go right to the breast.

The real crisis we are facing is infants not getting the treatment they need.

The resistance...

It was providential that I sat beside Dr. Scott Siegel on the first day for lunch. We were able to have interesting dialogue on how his practice is comprised of 50% tongue and lip ties. He focuses on airway and reflux issues as well.

Reflux is defined when stomach acid backs up into the esophagus/ mouth. Aerophagia , “air-eating”, is an excessive swallowing of air. Some is thought to be psychologic, some is thought to be anatomic.

Aerophagic baby gets stomach distension, belching, cholic and pain.

water or fluoride.jpg

Water fluoridation started in the 1940s and is still used in the water systems of most of America today. Dentists mistakenly claimed that as teeth developed, fluoride would incorporate into the matrix and make the teeth stronger for the remainder of the child’s life.

Consensuses among t dental researchers studying fluoridation submit that fluoride’s primary benefit is only topical and only after the teeth have erupted. Fluoride can cause fluorosis even as low as 1 ppm and fluorosis renders teeth more susceptible to decay.

Why then, are we swallowing fluoride if there is no benefit and we know that fluoride is systemically harmful, especially during infancy and early childhood? I certainly do not swallow sunscreen because it helps protect my skin from sun damage.

As the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) stated in 1999 “fluoride prevents dental caries predominately after eruption of the tooth into the mouth, and its actions primarily are topical for both adults and children.” The National Research Council agreed in 2006, stated, “The major anticaries benefit of...

mercury.jpg

A significant part of my philosophy in dentistry is protecting my patients from harmful toxins. We follow a strict protocol established by IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) when I remove mercury amalgam fillings from my patients. . Mercury amalgam fillings are over 50 % mercury content. When removing a mercury amalgam filling, the patient and dental team are exposed to over 3000 times the safe level determine by the EPA for safe breathing! If the protocol is not followed, 80% of mercury vapor is inhaled into the lungs and 30% of that enters circulation, traveling to our cells and brain. Biological dentists are concerned about all mercury exposure, but more concerned about the vapors inhaled than the particles swallowed. Mercury concentrates in the cell 5.6 times higher than the blood and over 1,000 higher in the mitochondria. Therefore, patients with heavy metal toxicity can become very ill and should work with a practitioner who understands and treats heavy metal toxicity. I am dedicated and will make sure every effort is made to reduce mercury...

“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.” Galileo Galilei

My journey began about five years ago. I married my husband prior to starting my last year of dental school. We wanted to conceive during that year so that we could enjoy our family as I began my career. We struggled for three, incredibly difficult years. After a year of trying naturally, I underwent fertility testing, fertility drugs and treatment for a year. I didn’t understand why it was so difficult for us to conceive, especially when we were told our tests returned with normal outcomes. The experience of fertility treatment caused an incredible amount of stress and placed me on a roller coaster of emotions each month. Weary from driving and fearful from the harmful effects of fertility drugs, my husband and I decided to allow God to do His work that no man can do. We prayed and believed.

We were on year three and still not pregnant. I was willing to try alternative remedies. One of my dear friends who is very...
