JoAnne’s Motivational Minute: Feeding Your Brain
Our self-talk is important! Most of us wouldn’t think of going a day without feeding our bodies with nourishing food. Why in the world would we not take time to feed our minds with nourishing thoughts?
Dr. Verigin’s Comment: The Route to Healing: A Primer, Part 1
When a new patient comes in seeking help, our first step is to find the unity in their dental and medical story. That story – a unique, personal history – gives us a road map for healing. But a road map can only show you where you are and where you want to go. It can’t tell you how to get there. Rather, you consult the map to plan your route.
Many come to our office with a veritable Pandora’s box of stifling symptoms and a litany of confusing diagnoses. They’ve consulted dozens of doctors, dentists and others who have told them dozens of conflicting stories about their illness and how to treat it. Why so many? Each has looked at parts without noticing how they fit together.
So we start by finding how they fit. Only then can we plan the route.

So are essential oils just a kind of gimmick?
It depends on what kind of oils you’re talking about.
