Dr. E. Dale Behner Now Provides Patients with Mercury Free Fillings and Other Holistic Dentistry Services in Fishers, IN


Fishers, IN (PRWEB) May 11, 2015

Dr. E. Dale Behner of Dental Care Today, PC, is pleased to announce that he offers a variety of holistic dentistry options in Fishers, IN. This approach is about whole-body wellness through the use of materials and medications that are natural, when feasible, that support healthy living. One example of a holistic approach is to use mercury free fillings, which avoid the dangers associated with continual contact of a material known to cause serious health problems. Dr. Behner works with each patient individually, so that he or she can create a dental care plan that is best suited to his or her unique needs.

Historically, dental professionals frequently treated patients with little regard to the effects of those treatments and how those procedures would ultimately affect their bodies. The mouth was commonly considered separate from other health concerns. Today, there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that proves that any health concerns in the mouth also affect the entire body. In the course of holistic dentistry treatment in Fishers, IN, Dr. Behner discusses practices that promote good health as the first step in preventing oral disease. Lifestyle, diet, reduced stress, exercise, nutrition and sleep are more important for optimal oral health than many realize, alongside consistent brushing and flossing.

Unfortunately, even optimal preventative practices generally cannot prevent all problems before they occur. When a dental disease does exist, Dr. Behner uses holistic dentistry in Fishers, IN, to treat the disease in the most beneficial way possible. He uses digital x-rays because they allow him to decrease the required dose of radiation during treatment. Dr. Behner also uses medications that are alcohol free and contain natural plant extracts. He will utilize these natural methods before he turns to the harsher chemicals found in many western medications. Mercury free fillings are an important part of holistic care because mercury is known to cause serious health problems. In the place of Mercury, he uses porcelain, composite resin or gold. Dr. Behner even has a special cavity-preventing paste that he uses in the place of traditional fluoride varnishes.

Anyone who wants more information about mercury free fillings and other holistic dental procedures is requested to visit Dr. Behner’s website, where he provides patient educational materials. He also invites interested patients to call or stop by his office for one-on-one help.

Integrated Health Yoga Therapy Introduces Holistic Health Consultant Certification to Meet the Needs for a New Medical Model


(PRWEB) November 26, 2014

As part of Integrated Health Yoga Therapy’s (http://www.ihyt.org/) new Holistic Health Consultant Certification Program ( http://www.ihyt.org/#!holistic-health-consultant/cojj), IHYT welcomes new faculty member macrobiotic expert and natural health counsellor, teacher, and researcher John Kozinski (http://www.macrobiotic.com/), whose unique macrobiotic program for health, in the spirit of IHYT’s own integrative philosophies, combines “the best of eastern and western approaches to food, nutrition, health, and healing with a contemporary interpretation.”

John Kozinski brings vast experience having taught and counselled over 38 years both in his own Macrobiotic Family Practice and as a senior faculty member at an international natural health institute with over 27 years uninterrupted tenure (1986-2013). He has aided thousands of people in their recovery from/improvement within a wide variety of conditions such as cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue, diabetes, hypoglycemia, inflammatory bowel syndrome, and mood disorders. He also trained many macrobiotic teachers and counsellors working in the field today. He has appeared on television and radio, written numerous articles on the topic of natural health and healing, and created an extensive series of macrobiotic health education CD’s and DVD’s. John maintains a teaching and counselling practice in Massachusetts while travelling extensively to assist in natural health programs and counselling.

John’s macrobiotic program for health draws on his wealth of experience and research, truly flowing from the holistic notion of whole body health and healing. It carefully interweaves strands of Chinese medicine, modern nutrition, allopathic medical approaches, Ayurvedic medicine, eastern and western herbal remedies, the energetic healing arts of Quigong/Do In and yoga, and his ongoing practice and teaching of shiatsu massage. Both conventional and alternative healing modalities have been a part of his sweeping, meticulous, ongoing research and study as he works to incorporate and integrate best practices concerning natural health care methodology and diagnosis.    

The term Macrobiotics refers to a philosophy of living applied to diet, lifestyle, and healing therapies to not only address individual conditions but to help optimize each person’s ability to create, in the course of life, their own greatest experience of physical and mental health. While its philosophies and practices were developed and popularized in Japan although based also upon Chinese traditions such as principle of balance known as yin and yang, it is important to understand that macrobiotics represents the way all indigenous cultures ate, and to a large extent, the way most populations on the planet ate prior to the industrial revolution. Modern Macrobiotics originated with George Ohsawa who introduced these oriental philosophies and practices to the West in the mid-20th century. Among his disciples was Michio Kushi who was instrumental in developing and refining North American Macrobiotics practice out of Massachusetts through the Kushi Institute.

Balance is the key element in Macrobiotics practice, but on a more basic level it presents a dietary model in which grains (preferably whole) and vegetables (preferably local) dominate and other foods play a minor role or are avoided completely. This latter group includes meats, animal fats, eggs, poultry, dairy products, refined sugars, tropical fruits and fruit juices, coffees and stimulant teas, hot spices, processed foods and refined grains and flours. The middle of the pyramidal model includes beans, seeds, nuts, and natural sweets in moderate amounts. The model is a basic representation of a more complicated system in which all foods inherently express a level of both yin and yang, with some being more balanced than others. Whole grains and vegetables represent the most inherently balanced foods, but through knowledge and practice a healthy Macrobiotic diet can also achieve balance through the juxtaposition of contrasting yin and yang foods within the same meal. Relaxed eating and proper chewing are also important aspects of a healthy Macrobiotics diet.

Diet may be the key element of Macrobiotics but Macrobiotics is not limited to diet. Sleep, exercise, exposure to fresh air, sunlight, and green plants, right down to intricate details about how we wash, dress, and order our homes and meals all find a place in Macrobiotics philosophy and practice as part of seeking a balanced lifestyle in which to maximize one’s experience of physical and mental health.

Integrated Health Yoga Therapy, both through its new Holistic Health Consultant Certification Program, and its addition of Macrobiotics expert John Kozinski to the IHYT staff, is dedicated to helping educate those to who want to help others find their best selves and live their best lives.
