After Laser Surgery Lanap and What I Really Think Part 3

  Periodontists and dentists will never be able to do anything about periodontitis if they can’t stop gum disease in their own mouths! That alone should tell you that gum disease is so much more than brushing and flossing. I still believe it has everything to do with your DNA, what you eat and how […]

Asian Chopped Salad Two Ways Vegan Friendly

  Soup and Salads are a staple for lunch and dinners. I feel you get the most bang for your buck with either. You can make a large amount and eat on all the chopping you did for a week! They can be super healthy or not, with or WITHOUT meat, travel friendly, easy, quick, […]

Turmeric Benefits and My Golden Ginger Tea Recipe

  Turmeric the “golden spice” is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant aka Curcuma. Curries and Indian dishes dazzle, with this gorgeous colored spice. Its exotic flavor enhances sauces, stews, dressings, dessert and even drinks. Turmeric is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which have been the subject of extensive scientific research over many years. If you […]

Cucumbers the Magical Pill

  Cucumbers I feel, are not given all the glory they deserve. They are so much more then fruit, disguised as a vegetable, salad topping, part of a crudités, eye patches in a facial or floating in drinking water at a fancy spa. Don’t get me wrong, I love all those applications for cucumbers and […]

Garbage in Garbage out – GIGO

The other night while watching reruns of Antony Bourdain, he was touring St Thomas. The private chef cooking for him kept saying “Live Rasta Man…if you eat garbage you think garbage.”                                         That really hit home […]

There’s Fluoride Then There Is Fluoride 

  I’m not here to tell you if fluoride is right for you or your family. I’m just sharing what I’ve learned on my journey to healthy teeth and gums. One thing I know for sure: fluoride does not stop cavities!  If it did, dentists would only work 2 days a week! No one in the big […]

Are Your Teeth Making You Sick?

  It truly amazes me that Dentists always want to blame patients for bad teeth or gums. Claiming the issues are due to “bad brushing or flossing”. The truth is many dentists don’t keep up with new and leading techniques, yet still charge the big bucks. The smile industry is changing fast and lord knows […]
