These books have both timeless and new information on the connection between oral health and overall health. This is critical information for you and your family, to resolve issues with past dental work, and to keep your teeth strong, white, and healthy for the rest of your life.
Hidden Epidemic: Silent Oral Infections Cause Most Heart Attacks and Breast Cancers
Dr. Thomas E. Levy, a cardiologist, lawyer, and world-recognized Vit. C expert, began having severe headaches that led to the diagnosis of high blood pressure. At the time, he had one tooth with a root canal. He went to see Hal Huggins, DDS, a strong proponent of biological, or holistic, dentistry. Dr. Levy was informed that his blood pressure would not return to normal until he got rid of that tooth. The tooth was extracted, his blood pressure returned to normal, and he experienced a side benefit he did not expect--his energy “literally skyrocketed.”
Since then, Dr. Levy has exhaustively researched and written about the mouth-body connection. In this book he explains the latest research on the connection between oral infection--that most people don't even know they have--and heart attacks, breast cancers, diabetes and other diseases. Highly recommended!
Nutrition and Physical Degeneration
Dr. Weston Price is considered the granddaddy of holistic dentistry. His research in the early 1900's established the link between oral infections and disease, and between nutrition and healthy teeth. He determined that specific bacteria found in teeth with root canals have an affinity for specific organs or tissues within the body, and these same bacteria were responsible for many degenerative diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, pulmonary infections and cancer.
The Toxic Tooth
Robert Kulacz, DDS abandoned much of his traditional dental practice after learning of the risks of some of the dental procedures he was performing. His first book, The Roots of Disease, with co-author Dr. Tom Levy was published in 2002. It introduced many of the concepts that The Toxic Tooth now greatly expands upon--how toxic material and procedures in the mouth can lead to other systemic diseases.
The Dental Diet
Dr. Steven Lin's mission is to prevent dental diseases instead of treating them. His journey began when, as a practicing dentist, he realized that today, we live with crippling oral disease. Whether it’s cavities, bleeding gums, crooked teeth or wisdom teeth impaction, there’s no doubt our modern mouths are very sick. Our current dental care is excellent at fixing these problems. However, it is failing to prevent oral disease. Steven soon became frustrated with the lack of answers for WHY dental diseases occur.
Today, Steven Lin focuses on helping his patients prevent dental disease and to avoid treatment. He looks for the root cause of disease, believing that the mouth-body connection is the best way to monitor our health.
