Natural Oral Care & Holistic Dentists for Overall Health

There are many types of health-related uses for holistic alternative treatments. Popular right now are Holistic Dentistries. Many believe that overall health actually starts with proper oral and dental health. DentistryIQ talks about how gum inflammation and disease can actually lead to heart disease and other medical problems. This is why it is so important that when looking into Integrative Medicine, you really do your diligent research and look for holistic options for the entire body.

Integrative Medicine History

In the last 100 years the world of medicine has seen a true historical revolution. The accomplishments of modern medicine surpass the imagination, from overcoming diseases and saving lives, to organ transplants and improving the quality of life.

In the meantime, many physicians discovered that patients who received “alternative” therapies simultaneous to conventional care improved their medical condition.
