Integrative Medical Solutions | Stem Cells 101

Integrative Medical Solutions and Stem Cells

What Are Stem Cells?

These have been called Progenitor Cells.  

They are totally unique in our bodies because they are not yet blood cells, muscle cells, lung cells, heart cells.  

They are the undifferentiated cells which will become every kind of cells we have before we are born.

They become almost every kind of cell we have after we are fully developed, except nerve cells.

Fluoride - You Can't Handle The Truth!

Integrative Medical Solutions Looks At Fluoride

Why Is There Any Discussion?

I'm discussing this now because I was at a large meeting with a lot of people very interested in nutrition and adult stem cell activity this past weekend.

I was asked at least three times about fluoride, about it's being so poisonous and causing so many problems.

My first question to them was always, "Do you know why we fluoridate water?  The answer was easy, "Sure, to prevent tooth decay."

Admittedly not a bad thing, right?  But Fluoride was also accused of causing many other problems.

So I asked, "Do you know how the amount of fluoride we recommend in our water was decided?"  Always, "No idea."

Cell Phone Dangers

Integrative Medical Solutions Is About Prevention

I realize that studies have produced conflicting results, but some studies of EMFs are definitely causing concern.

The fact is that children, even infants, are being exposed to electromagnetic emissions, also often called RF radiation, for many hours a day now.

No, it's not radiation like that caused by an X-Ray machine or a nuclear bomb.  It is, however a frequency of energy

Structural Therapists And Dentists As Integrative Medical Solutions Teams

Why Evaluate And Treat Patients As A Team?

We use as tools patient's reports of their symptoms, radiographs, palpation, auscultation, functional evaluative tests such as range of motion and we make observations all the time.  

If other team members know the testing procedures you use, they can use these tests to evaluate the immediate functional efficacy of their own treatment and raise their own expectations to match yours.

Integrative Medical Solutions: The Why! - Part II

Current Practices Without Integrative Medical Solutions

Orthodontists still very frequently utilize a sequence of procedures based upon what is called “serial extractions.”

·     What is commonly told to the parents, and the teenager, is that "there was not enough room for the teeth to fit in the jaw.” 

·     Second bicuspid teeth (usually) are removed from one or both dental arches, followed by orthodontic braces and forces are applied with braces, wires and rubber bands to close these spaces.

·   It has been learned, as many of these young men and women have grown older, that several different kinds of symptoms have resulted.

Integrative Medical Solutions: The Why! - Part I

Integrative Medical Solutions:  

My Passion

I've started my new website-based organization, Integrative Medical Solutions for three main reasons. 
  1. I intend to show the need for a for a place where the public as well as professionals in the medical field can exchange ideas, questions and even debate.
  2. It has been my experience that the biomechanical and neurologic integration of our bodies is evident, measurable and can be tested.
  3. It can, and must be documented and used to establish a scientific basis for further explanation and study.  
  4. Patients will benefit from earlier diagnosis and intervention

I am a retired dentist.  I retired due to bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome, due to which my hands were cramping and finally became totally numb for four months.  At that time, the surgical therapy that was available had a 60% relapse rate.

As a physician-dentist and a therapist, I performed tests during patient examinations three times, every time.  That made them suitable for presentation in court in my many accident cases, as well as for my own records.
