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.

The Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists, Top Providers of Hair Loss Treatment, Provides Tips on How to Prevent Female Hair Loss


Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) March 11, 2015

The Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists (http://www.CanadianHair.ca), a Toronto-based organization offering hair loss treatment for over 25 years, is providing tips on how to prevent female hair loss.

“Female hair loss is still somewhat stigmatized and not addressed much publicly. However, most females will experience some form of hair thinning by the time they reach middle age, meaning it needs real solutions,” says Ken Robson, founder of the Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists. “Thinning hair can actually occur when women are in their twenties, so it’s beneficial to know preventative measures as early as possible.”

Robson explains that diet is a determining factor in female hair loss. Not getting the required iron can lead to premature thinning and the loss of strength of hair follicles. Women who are vegetarians or vegans and not eating foods that are rich in iron may also notice their hair start to thin, making it crucial that vegetarians include greens like spinach and kale in their diet, as well as incorporate beans and tofu, which are strong sources of iron.

Here’s Help,” The Times of India, March 1, 2015; http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life-style/health-fitness/health/Are-you-losing-your-hair-Heres-help/articleshow/46397930.cms.)

“Scalp massages are another preventative measure that has shown some measure of success in preventing thinning hair in females,” he adds. “Massaging either coconut or argan oil into the scalp increases the blood flow, which theoretically infuses hair follicles with the necessary nutrients.”

Robson notes that women can even flip the direction of their hair. It may sound ridiculous, but when hair is flipped the same way over and over, it ends up laying on the scalp. Flipping in a different direction can add volume, Robson explains.

“With all that said, there comes a time when hair thinning or hair loss becomes inevitable and more drastic measures must be taken. But that’s what the Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists are here for. We offer clinical treatment for female hair loss with proven results.”

The best way for a female to know if they are a suitable candidate for hair transplant surgery is to visit the Canadian Institute of Hair and Scalp Specialists’ web site at http://www.CanadianHair.ca to make an appointment.

Vital Health Details How To Recognize Early Warning Signs Of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Provides Tips To Manage Symptoms


Orland Park, Illinois (PRWEB) December 05, 2014

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a disease of the autoimmune system. RA occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the synovium — the lining of the membranes that surround the joints. Joint erosion may follow.

Barbara Griffin, NMD, CNC, Certified Gluten Practitioner, and director of Vital Health, Inc. explained, “Early RA tends to affect the smaller joints first, such as the joints that attach the fingers and toes feet. As the disease progresses, symptoms often spread to the wrists, knees, ankles, elbows, hips and shoulders. RA can affect the organs as well.”

RA signs and symptoms may vary in severity and may even come and go. Periods of increased disease activity, called flares, alternate with periods of relative remission. Over time, RA can cause joints to deform and shift out of place.

“Through early detection, proper management of RA can be used to optimize the health status throughout the body. If a person has early warning symptoms of RA along with a family history of RA, or already has a diagnosed autoimmune disease, it is essential they start supporting the body in order to prevent progression of the disease,” remarked Dr. Griffin.

Early Warning Signs and Symptoms of RA

1. One or more finger-knuckle joints will swell. Redness and warmth of the knuckle joints may be present.

2. Tenderness on the balls of feet, even swelling under the foot. Pain may be worse when first getting out of bed.

3. Flu-like symptoms such as low-grade fever, fatigue and possible weight loss.

4. Bumps on the elbows. Firm bumps of tissue under the skin on the arms (rheumatoid nodules).

5. Joints are stiff for more than one hour in the morning. Stiffness that lasts for several hours is generally a symptom of inflammatory arthritis, and is typical of RA. You may also feel stiffness after any period of prolonged inactivity like napping or sitting.

6. Inflammation of tendons creating pressure on your nerves. This may cause numbness, tingling, or a burning feeling in your hands referred to as carpal tunnel syndrome or in the feet as plantar fasciitis.

7. Other symptoms can include dry mouth or dry itchy inflamed eyes, chest pain when breathing and difficulty sleeping.

Prevention and Symptom Management

1. Avoid Foods That Trigger Inflammation

While some foods seem to ease inflammation, compounds in others have been found to increase it. The following foods have been attributed to raising inflammation levels in the body and should be avoided:

    Fried and processed foods
    Dairy products
    Sugar and refined carbohydrates
    Salt and preservatives
    Corn oil
    Alcohol and tobacco
    Eating hamburgers, chicken, or other meats that have been grilled or fried at high temperatures can raise the amount of advanced glycation end products (AEGs) in the blood. High levels of AGEs have been detected in people with inflammation (1)

2. Gluten’s Connection With RA

“RA is an autoimmune disease. Gluten is one of the most common food sensitivity linked to autoimmune disease,” explained Dr. Griffin who is a Certified Gluten Practitioner and trained expert in gluten and the harmful effects it can have on the body. “Gluten sensitivity and celiac disease linkage needs to be ruled out if a person has an autoimmune disease. The elimination of gluten in the diet can be so powerful that there is hope to lessen the systems of RA, possibly eliminate the need for multiple medications, and most importantly prevent other autoimmune disease.”

Symptoms of arthritis, which include joint pain and stiffness, are also symptoms of the immune response caused by celiac disease. People who are gluten sensitive or who have been diagnosed with celiac disease may experience joint pain, swelling, and stiffness if they eat foods with gluten.

These similar symptoms make celiac disease difficult to diagnose. In fact, it’s commonly confused with other conditions, such as arthritis. It is important to discuss with your doctor all of your symptoms even those that may seem unrelated. In addition to looking at the joints, especially if you have a family history of celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, it is important that the intestines are not overlooked for they are often the root cause.

3. Nourish the Body With Nutritional Supplements

Dr. Griffin explains, “Certain nutritional substances can help alleviate RA. Addressing nutritional deficiencies that have been genetically linked to RA and other autoimmune diseases can help prevent the diseases or slow down its progression. The most commonly observed vitamin and mineral deficiencies in patients with RA include:

    Vitamin D deficiency has been linked with autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and type 1 diabetes. Try ProVitality Vitamin D.
    Zinc alleviates joint swelling and morning stiffness associated with RA. Many people with RA are deficient in Zinc.
    Vitamin B12 deficiency does not cause arthritis but may worsen anemia in patients with RA. Anemia is a common problem in patients with RA, according to the National Anemia Action Council. RA patients may experience anemia because of gastrointestinal bleeding caused by the chronic use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. (2) Additionally, B6 can help elevate inflammation. Vital Essence offers B-12 Folate and Methyl-B12 Lozenge. Autoimmune conditions frequently have the MTHFR gene link, which inhibits the methylation (absorption) of B12/folic acid/B6 necessitating the need for the methylated forms of B12 and folic acid.
    Folic Acid is a B vitamin that promotes health and supports the body’s metabolism. Some common RA drugs interfere with how the body uses folic acid. As a result, many RA patients become deficient in folic acid.
    Coconut Oil appears to reduce damage caused by the overactive immune system. Try ProVitality Coconut Oil, its rich antioxidants formula can help reduce inflammation associated with arthritis.

Vital Health, Inc. suggests talking to physician before beginning any supplement regimen.
