I love dentists. Perhaps it was the years I spent as a broke student without dental coverage, or perhaps it is because there are so many similarities to what I focus on (Structural BioCorrection) and dentistry.
When you look at people’s teeth today, you see a lot of beautiful smiles. The health of people’s teeth today is completely different than it was eighty years ago. Eighty years ago,… losing your teeth was commonplace, and was attributed to being a normal part of aging.
Why the big difference?
As a culture, we have developed the understanding that your teeth are incredibly important. Your smile is one of the first things that people notice, and is an important factor in how others perceive you. Not properly taking care of your teeth can even lead to systemic infections that affect your heart. Pretty crazy stuff!
We now understand as a culture, that if you want to take care of those beautiful pearly whites; there are certain things you need to do. What are they? You brush three times a day, you floss, and you see the dentist every six months for a checkup. Simple, right?
I also love x-rays. X-rays always tell the truth, and they allow me to discover primary conditions YEARS before they lead to secondary conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, headaches, degeneration, etc. I can’t tell you how many times someone has presented to me with indicators of a Structural Shift (when your spine loses its proper alignment), without symptoms. When I look at an x-ray of these individuals, I often find major spinal problems, such as the loss of the necessary structural curves and severe degeneration.
I look at several x-rays every day, in which spinal degeneration has been occurring for over 20 years. This is incredibly frustrating for me, because this degeneration could have been completely avoided with the proper preventative care.
Many people think that spinal degeneration and arthritis are a normal part of aging. They are absolutely NOT. When I look at a structural x-ray, I will often see degenerating vertebrae while the neighboring vertebrae are completely healthy.
Please ask yourself this question: Why is one vertebrae (or hip, knee, shoulder, etc.) arthritic and degenerating while it’s neighbor (which is the same age), is not?
