"Hiding in Plain Sight: What Your Dentition and Oral Health May Mean For the Rest of Your Health"


Presented by Dr. Eric Wood, MA, ND This webinar will reveal a foundational connection between much of what we do to our mouth in our lifetime and what we eat to our subsequent physical body development and potential future health issues. Research illustrates that the simple choice of bottle vs breast feeding can have lasting health effects for the rest of our lives. The choices and habits affecting our dental health we form in our childhood and into adulthood continue to impact our health monumentally for the rest of our lives. Examples of areas that will be focused on this presentation include: 1) The ramifications of amalgam fillings on health. 2) Root canals and their connection to creating systemic disturbances and a myriad of possible health problems. 3) Weston Price Studies re: human's physical appearance, dentition, and the impact of one's diet on such points. 4) Understanding the Chinese/European medicine-derived Tooth Meridian chart and its wisdom for understanding seemingly 'unrelated' other health issues. 5) Dental Occlusions/Malocclusions, their correlation to dietary intake, their correlations to bottle feeding vs breast feeding, palate development, and more. Moreover, these points will be connected to incidence studies of other health problems including mouth breathing, increased incidence of cavities, and more. 6) Braces and/or other functional dental appliances—the pros & cons on their use re: cranial structure/function and overall health.
