"Something To Chew On" is a Health Manual first and foremost, but it is a Health Manual with a difference. The difference is a new way of seeing, a new and deeper understanding, a new perspective. There are another seven new perspectives: The First New Perspective, - The Person As Partner This approach is quite different from the usual approaches to dental disease. Traditionally the focus is on the teeth and what can be done to them. The Second New Perspective, The Person As A Whole - Holistic Dentistry - Understanding The Whole Person. This approach recognises the complex nature of a human being and the many factors that may be at play in problems manifesting in the mouth. The Third New Perspective, - the Mouth in all its glory. The mouth is often seen as nothing more than a chewing device!! This book provides a very different way of looking. This new perspective allows a completely new understanding of the mouth and all its functions. We go beyond a purely mechanical view of the mouth as a 'food chewing system' The Fourth New Perspective, - Understanding the Nature of Habit. The negative spiral and how to so bring a positive upward spiral. The Fifth New Perspective, - Understanding why we have failed in the past and how we can achieve success We move from trying to change an Effect without reference to the Cause which is, of course impossible to concentration of our effort on the shifting of Cause which must produce a shift in effect. The Sixth New Perspective, - Dealing with Stress as a Priority Once stress is understood as the source of the problem, our treatment becomes the dissolution of stress in all its various disguises, - anxiety, worry, fear, resentment, upset, regret etc. The Seventh New Perspective, - The Gentle Approach is a Requirement not an Optional Extra. To be gentle may sound like an option, something which can be used or not. Gentleness and patience are essential to healing because they dissolve stress and tension which produce disease in the first place.

There's a silent epidemic in western civilization, and it is right under our noses. Our jaws are getting smaller and our teeth crooked and crowded, creating not only aesthetic challenges but also difficulties with breathing. Modern orthodontics has persuaded us that braces and oral devices can correct these problems. While teeth can certainly be straightened, what about the underlying causes of this rapid shift in oral evolution and the health risks posed by obstructed airways? Sandra Kahn and Paul R. Ehrlich, a pioneering orthodontist and a world-renowned evolutionist, respectively, present the biological, dietary, and cultural changes that have driven us toward this major health challenge. They propose simple adjustments that can alleviate this developing crisis, as well as a major alternative to orthodontics that promises more significant long-term relief. Jaws will change your life. Every parent should read this book.

The Dental Diet

Author: Steven Lin
Publisher: Hay House, Inc
ISBN: 9781401953188
Release Date: 2018-01-09
Genre: Health & Fitness

Throughout the years, dental health has often been characterized as a reflection of our overall health, where bad oral health results from issues with other parts of our body. But what if we flipped the paradigm? What if we thought about dental health as the foundation for our physical health as a whole? Dr. Steven Lin, an experienced dentist and the world’s first dental nutritionist, has analyzed our ancestral traditions, epigenetics, gut health, and the microbiome in order to develop food-based principles for a literal top-down holistic health approach. Merging dental and nutritional science, Dr. Lin lays out the dietary program that can help ensure you won’t need dental fillings or cholesterol medications —and give you the resources to raise kids who develop naturally straight teeth. With our mouth as the gatekeeper of our gut, keeping our oral microbiome balanced will create a healthy body through a healthy mouth. Dr. Lin arms you with a 40-day meal plan, complete with the Dental Diet food pyramid, exercises for the mouth, recipes, and cooking techniques to help you easily and successfully implement his techniques into your everyday life. The tools to improve overall wellness levels and reverse disease are closer than we think —in our markets, in our pantries, and, most frequently, in our mouths —if not just a well-chosen bite or two away.

World Report on Ageing and Health

Release Date: 2015-10-22
Genre: Family & Relationships

The WHO World report on ageing and health is not for the book shelf it is a living breathing testament to all older people who have fought for their voice to be heard at all levels of government across disciplines and sectors. - Mr Bjarne Hastrup President International Federation on Ageing and CEO DaneAge This report outlines a framework for action to foster Healthy Ageing built around the new concept of functional ability. This will require a transformation of health systems away from disease based curative models and towards the provision of older-person-centred and integrated care. It will require the development sometimes from nothing of comprehensive systems of long term care. It will require a coordinated response from many other sectors and multiple levels of government. And it will need to draw on better ways of measuring and monitoring the health and functioning of older populations. These actions are likely to be a sound investment in society's future. A future that gives older people the freedom to live lives that previous generations might never have imagined. The World report on ageing and health responds to these challenges by recommending equally profound changes in the way health policies for ageing populations are formulated and services are provided. As the foundation for its recommendations the report looks at what the latest evidence has to say about the ageing process noting that many common perceptions and assumptions about older people are based on outdated stereotypes. The report's recommendations are anchored in the evidence comprehensive and forward-looking yet eminently practical. Throughout examples of experiences from different countries are used to illustrate how specific problems can be addressed through innovation solutions. Topics explored range from strategies to deliver comprehensive and person-centred services to older populations to policies that enable older people to live in comfort and safety to ways to correct the problems and injustices inherent in current systems for long-term care.
