What Is Functional Dentistry?

health topics rethink health self improvement

Do you know that wisdom teeth are supposed to fit in our mouths? That tooth decay isn’t just about eating candy? And that teeth grinding can be a sign of poor oxygenation integrity during sleep?

Meet Dr. Steven Lin, a pioneering nutrition-based dentist who is here to teach us how and why oral health should be the cornerstone of full body health.

Also a devotee of Dr. Weston A. Price, Steven has researched what went wrong as traditional cultures industrialized and began to degenerate into states of chronic illness.

But he has also translated this research into natural healing. Through his book The Dental Diet, and his online Healthy Mouth Healthy Body Program, he is empowering us – particularly parents – to optimize our oral wellness. He teaches simple exercises that can be done at home, and a dietary plan that is very resonant with my own.

In this era of self-healing dogmatic approaches to interventionist medicine are crumbling. Dentistry is no exception.

If you want to learn how to:

  • Avoid braces
  • Widen the palate
  • Resolve apnea and mouth breathing
  • Heal decay

Check him out, beginning with our chat below! And then take a look at his book and his online program.
