It's All in Your Mouth: Biological Dentistry and the Surprising Impact of Oral Health on Whole Body Wellness (Paperback)
The future of medicine--and the key to a healthier life--starts in your mouth
American dentists are beginning to discover what some of their European counterparts have long understood: Many common chronic conditions--obesity, inflammation, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer's, heart disease, and cancer, among others--often have their origins in the mouth. In a groundbreaking new work, German dentist Dr. Dominik Nischwitz presents the principles of biological dentistry along with emerging scientific research on the mouth's vital role in the body's microbiome--a key to whole body wellness.
Challenging conventional dental wisdom that views the teeth as separate from the rest of the body, and conventional dental practices that often cause more harm than good, It's All in Your Mouth delivers:
The latest research on the microbiome and the mouth
Critical information on the dangers of root canals and amalgam fillings
The important role of nutrition in oral health and hygiene
A clarion call for a new approach to dentistry
Sensible, holistic, and humane, It's All in Your Mouth offers a necessary new approach to natural immunity to chronic disease and integrating dental hygiene into whole body health.
