The Oral Health Bible

Another health revolution has arrived, says Dr. Michael Bonner in his well-researched new book The Oral Health Bible, and there is no longer any separation between mouth medicine and body medicine. The mouth is completely connected to the body, he says, and is a doorway to achieving peak health and wellness in all the body's systems.This informative book contains an action plan for taking charge of our oral health and it educates us and our physicians and dentists by detailing how many debilitating health problems-conditions such as arteriosclerosis, heart attacks, strokes, rheumatoid arthritis, and premature and low-birth-weight babies-are intimately linked to oral health and hygiene..Dr. Bonner emphasizes the importance of finding and treating periodontal (gum) disease because, untreated, it can lead to heart attacks and strokes. He sees more gum disease now than he did twenty-five years ago, he says, largely because of the increasing availability of harmful oral hygiene products on the market. Mouthwashes, for example, are generally considered trustworthy, but in reality, they are the cause of 36,000 cases of oral cancer a year. Moreover, 500 people are killed annually from alcohol ingestion related to mouthwashes.Dr. Bonner discusses safe, effective oral health techniques and products in order to reverse gum disease with its far-reaching negative consequences. He also outlines how nutritional supplements can help deliver potentially enormous benefits to oral, as well as overall, health. In 1910, the Mayo (clinic) brothers said, "A person with a healthy mouth will live ten years longer."

A decisive role in my clinical practice as a dental hygienist are very points made in this guide geared to innovative prevention and oral health. No more I try to explain the relationship between health of the mouth to total body health. My treatment and oral health advice at home were lined with this book more than 15 years. And I saw the positive difference with my patients, especially when the 10 nutritional products for oral health and irrigation are taken with the 3000 OxyCare becomes a daily routine. Read it - Study - and most important - Do it! Thanks Drs. Bonner and Mindell for helping us learn how we can improve the oral health professionals and individuals!

Dr. Bonner trys to spread the truth with Sean Ferguson Dr. Michael Bonner is the only medical author I know who emphasizes the seriousness of dental and gum diseases, and its impact on heart health. Although others have written about the subject, Dr. Bonner, the alarm sounds, and gives the reader a protocol that can reverse oral disease and promote a return to a healthy life. What I know about the effect of C-reactive protein (CRP) and the test, he tells you to do to identify him and take the necessary steps (which you get to your gums and mouth healthy) to reduce may already have learned a life-saving for me, clearly written and well organized, I would rate it 5 stars.
