Integrative Medicine

What is integrative medicine?  I am a firm believer in getting to the root cause of disease versus treating symptoms.  I also believe it is important to have an open mind and draw on the knowledge and experience of all modalities of medicine including western and eastern medicine.  I have studied holistic nutrition, ayurveda and chinese medicine.  I also use energy medicine, stones and crystals to create positive energy and allay anxiety.  It is possible to uncover the root cause of anxiety by altering diet and creating a spiritual practice.  By using these modalities I can look at your tongue and see how your digestive tract is doing.  I can assess the hydration status of your body and pinpoint certain areas of the body that need attention.  It is my intention to eliminate the need for excessive chemicals and medications that  treat symptoms, but do not address the root cause of the underlying issue.  I do not believe that flouride is the cure or proper prevention for all cavities.  It is apparent from the extensive literature that when our bodies are lacking the appropriate minerals, they will be pulled from our teeth and bones, therefore making us more susceptible to infections, including cavities.  The key to health and wellness is a robust digestion and the appropriate amount of vitamins minerals and oxygen.  At Carver Family Dentistry we treat the whole body in order to create truly healthy bodies!
