IS YOUR DIET THE CAUSE OF YOUR DENTAL DISEASE?
TOOTH DECAY, CROWDED MOUTHS AND GUM DISEASE ARE NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCY DISEASES
Dr Weston A. Price was a famous dentist in the 1930’s who was the first to make the connection between diet and oral health. He found groups of people from various geographic areas and climates eating varied diets who were “immune to tooth decay”. It was amazing to him and as a concerned dentist he needed to understand why.

BALANCE THE FOUR ESSENTIALS OF LIFE
The Paleo/Primal/Ancestral/Nutrivore Diet is about making more nutritious food choices by eating like our hunter gatherer ancestors. Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean that you have to go out foraging in the woods for your dinner! It simply means you should avoid eating foods that are processed and high in empty calories. Instead, stick to the healthy, nutrient dense foods that have been around for a very long time. A diet high in vegetables with animal meats/seafood, fruits and some nuts.
THE most important thing in life other than oxygen and water is sleep. We can go for a month with no food - and we can live a long time on a poor diet. We can even go a lifetime without exercise. But we can only survive without sleep for seven days! Proper sleep (I recommend 7 and a half to 8 hrs) is necessary for optimal health. If you have a perfect diet and workout routine, but only sleep for a few hours each night, you will not be healthy. Sleep Hygiene is the term used to describe the methods you can use to help get the sleep you deserve.
Dr. Solomons Is Certified In SMART Mercury Removal
All dental amalgams, also referred to as silver fillings, contain over 50% mercury which is a neurotoxin that is constantly released in the form of an invisible vapor. Laws dictate that unused amalgam must be placed in special containers, not the garbage! The process of drilling out amalgam fillings releases even higher quantities of mercury vapor and fine particulates (more toxic than the vapor) that can be inhaled and absorbed through the lungs. This is potentially harmful to patients, dentists, other dental workers, and the fetuses of patients.
The human body is designed to get up in the morning and look for food. This means that we are designed to move for a good portion of each day. Gathering activities do not require running all day. Hunting requires mostly stalking, with some sprinting and carrying of the carcass. Our genes have optimized us for this behavior. Our grandparents' only exercise was daily living. Obesity affected one in ten back then. We spend way more time in the gym today, yet two out of three are overweight. What is going on?
I would define chronic stress as an environmental or psychological pressure that places an upward demand on the body’s regulatory systems. Over time, the body produces too much cortisol (the major stress hormone), and the body becomes insulin and leptin resistant. This causes carbohydrate cravings, obesity, hypertension, high triglycerides, low HDL, atherosclerosis, diabetes, sleep apnea, clenching, grinding, digestive disorders, osteoporosis, coronary artery plaque formation, heart attacks, strokes, and cancer.
