What is functional medicine?
It seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the whole system, not just the symptoms.
Why does SMART matter?
All dental amalgams, also referred to as silver fillings, contain
50% mercury (a neurotoxin) which is constantly released in the form of an invisible vapor. The
process of drilling out amalgam fillings releases even higher quantities of mercury vapor and
fine particulates that can be inhaled and absorbed through the lungs. This is potentially harmful
to patients, dentists, other dental workers, and the fetuses of patients and all dental personnel.
