– Transcript –
Good morning, you’re listening to Let’s Talk Dentistry. This is Dr. Marvin. I’ve got a big announcement for you. If you listened last week or the week before, you know that this is a special, special show for me today. The reason why it’s a special show is that all good things must come to an end. Today is the end of Let’s Talk Dentistry. The last show. That’s right, the last show. I want you to listen to me for the last show. Give me one last show to just harp on my message, through and through.
My message is that God created us human beings (homo sapiens) to heal. We as humans have free will to decide what goes on in our bodies. We get to decide what goes in and we get to decide what goes out. We need to make smart choices on what goes on inside our bodies.
Because I’m a dentist, I’m concerned about what’s going on inside your mouth. Unfortunately my colleagues, other dentists, are taught, like myself (we all go to the same schools), that the teeth are important. We have to repair the teeth, and we have to clean the gums. What we’re not taught is that what we do, from the procedures we recommend (such as root canals and titanium implants) to the materials that we put in (such as mercury fillings, BPA fillings, metal-nickle crowns, nickle orthodontics, polymethyl methacrylate dentures and partials) to the procedures that we do (like extracting teeth without cleaning out infections or taking out perfectly good wisdom teeth and bicuspids), all of this works against what my message is.
It’s ‘Don’t mess up what God created.’ God created our bodies to heal. When we start introducing toxins into our bodies, we need to make a conscious effort to remove it. We need to remove the bad stuff from our bodies and start giving ourselves the good stuff.
Let me ask you this: What are you eating for breakfast? Is what you’re eating right now, or what you ate for breakfast, or what you will eat for breakfast this morning going to improve your health? If it’s not going to improve your health, chances are it’s going to decrease your health. In other words, it’s going to move you into the direction of disease. If you want that direction, then feel free. It’s your choice what you put inside your mouth. Most of the time what we put into our bodies are not the building blocks for our health. They’re no the building blocks of our body. They’re not what our body wants, and we’re not giving it to it.
I used to just fill my stomach with anything I could, because I knew my stomach needed to be filled. Now I fill my stomach with stuff my body wants, because that’s what it needs in order to survive. God created that. The vitamins, the nutrients, the proteins, the vegetables, you name it. We need to take control over what we eat, and that’s what natural dentistry is all about.
My message to you, since this is the last time we’re going to be together (at least on the radio) is ‘Take control and question what other people’s motives are.’ Do this: Remove the bad stuff from your body. It could be a mercury filling. It could be parasites. It could be toxins. Do a cleanse. There are so many things you can do to remove the bad stuff. It’s not all about eating properly, it’s all about detoxifying. Toxins are what a lot of diseases come from.
It’s absolutely amazing what people do to their bodies. I walk around. My wife and I were at the grocery store. We were at Whole Foods. Even places like Whole Foods that are supposed to be healthy, there’s a lot of junk there. There are a lot of bad products: processed foods, lots of sugar in things, even the gluten free stuff. People are going gluten free. Yes, gluten probably is bad for you, but so are a lot of grains. A lot of grains are bad for you.
I highly recommend the book Grain Brain. It’s a very popular book. You’ve definitely got to read that book. You’re going to start looking at grains from a whole different perspective. If you want to avoid (I know a lot of people do) dementia or Alzheimer’s when you get older, you’ve got to start questioning. What’s the cause? The American diet has gone full steam ahead with all of these carbohydrates and breads and noodles. Start thinking about that.
Today is the last show. It’s the third part of a series that I’m calling “Everything About Natural Dentistry.” We talked about what the difference is between holistic dentistry and traditional dentistry. We talked about the oral systemic connection. It’s a stronger connection than what you and most professionals believe. We talked a little bit about toothbrush and toothpaste and stuff like that.
One other thing that I want to add is that the technique you use is probably better than the products that you use. For instance I’m not going to care too much about the toothpaste as long as it’s a natural toothpaste. The way that you brush is more important, and you use a brush that is effective in not causing more harm.
Flossing is not all about getting in between the teeth, it’s about getting the plaque below your gum line. It’s not about how often you do it, but it’s how you do it. It’s like what type of floss. I like one certain type of floss and not what that just glides over the plaque. That’s very important.
When it comes to your breath, what’s the cause of bad breath? Most people believe you can take a breath mint or swish with a mouth wash. Well gums, mints, mouthwash, toothbrush, toothpaste, that’s all a cover up. It’s a Band-Aid. That’s not the type of dentistry that I want to recommend. I want to try to figure out the cause. What is the cause of bad breath? The cause of bad breath is your overall health. If you toxify your overall body, it’s kind of like when you see all these big people out there that eat all this bad food. They not only have bad breath, but they have bad body odor. What do they sweat? Your skin is just one huge detoxification organ. It’s sweating out toxings because there are just so many toxins inside your body, and that’s the odor. When you have bad breath, it’s a sign that your overall health is poor.
Go to the mirror and look at your tongue. When you stick it out all the way, if it’s coated (meaning it’s not pink) with a fuzz or a whiteness or a yellow to it, then you probably have a systemic candida issue. Candida is a yeast that over grows in your body, and it’s in a lot of people. If that’s the problem, then scraping your tongue is not going to be the solution because it’s systemic.
If it’s a systemic problem, then it involves a systemic solution. You may have to do some detox. Remove the metals from your body. Detox the mercury from your body. Then you have to cleanse. You have to starve the yeast that’s in your body, and those cleanses are pretty difficult. Don’t just cover things up, figure out the cause. The root cause of a problem is so much more important than just covering up the symptoms.
Speaking of which, I went to my regular doctor. A naturopath told me that doctors are ordinary. You see my daughter has difficulty hearing. When we went to the naturopath, she said she thinks it’s because of a lot of ear wax. We decided to go to an ear, nose and throat specialist. I know ear, nose, and throat, because my dad’s an ear, nose and throat doctor and head and neck surgeon. When we went into the office– I don’t know if you’ve been to a regular medical office. It really is ordinary. There’s nothing special about regular medicine or regular dentistry. What you’re going to find out, is that you are just a part of a system that is involved with keeping you from dying but is not into keeping you healthy.
That’s the problem. Our health care is sick care, not health care. We can keep people alive, but as a whole corporations, doctors, insurance companies, and the patients themselves are all looking at it from the wrong perspective. Health care is about being healthy and making the right choices. It’s extremely important that you look at things from the big picture.
If you want to schedule a visit with me or Dr. Godes before the end of the year, now is as good a time as ever. Call 760-536-1199. The best time to call is right now. I’m going to give you free x-rays and half off the exam. I pretty much am giving you very good dental advice for $99. We’re giving you free x-rays, we take half off our exam. We’re going to spend an hour with you going over this and that for $99. This advice can save you thousands of dollars over your life span, and all of the heartache. If you went to an attorney and you paid them for an hour’s worth of advice on anything, it could be a divorce, or a lawsuit versus a company, or it’s about your company, or taxes, or real estate, that hour’s worth of time that you’re getting from an expert may cost you $200, $400, or $500. What that’s going to save you in piece of mind and knowing what to do is going to save you a lot of time, energy and money. For $99, which is my end of the show special for today, for anybody who calls today, you’re going to get an incredible deal. For $99 you get our recommendation, our opinion, our advice, and we’re not going to hold back. We’re not going to judge you. We’re going to say, “This is exactly what I would do if it were me.” That’s the best.
Our treatment is the best that we can do. It’s the best that we can recommend. We’re not going to talk about compromises from the start. We’re going to talk about what’s best for you. It may surprise you. I surprise a lot of patients that look at our treatment plan and go, “That’s it? Wow! I thought it was going to be a lot more!” So don’t let the price get to you. You just need to get to the exam. All you need is $99. Schedule an exam and x-rays, get our advice, then you get to decide if you want us to do it. 9 times out of 10 people come to us because our recommendations… other dentists don’t know what that means. They don’t know what it is. They don’t know what they’re doing. Schedule a visit with us for $99. Call today. I’m not going to give this to the first three callers, I’m going to give it to every caller today, since this is the last show, this is the last time you’re going to hear my silly voice talk about dentistry.
Who else have you listened to? A dentist can talk about dentistry every week for 5 or 6 years straight? Almost nobody. I did it, I’m doing it, and now it’s coming to and end. Let me remind people, the reason why I’m taking a break from dentistry is because I’m going to teach other dentists. In order to teach other dentists, I’ve established what’s called the Academy of Natural Dentistry. We’re going to show other dentists how to do what we do, so we can help more people. You see in one hour I can see one patient and do a procedure. If I teach ten dentists, they can do ten patients, one patient each, and I’ve helped more people.
To me that makes sense. That’s scalability, because we have so many dentists that want this information. They want to do what I do. The problem is that they live far. I’m going to have to figure out a way to train these dentists, because they’re so excited and so willing. They realize that what they’re doing is not only harmful to them, but they can make a difference and help people’s lives. That’s right, we help people’s lives. We’ve cured cancer in people, we’ve cured thyroid issues, neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, all the pains, headaches. I adjusted some girl’s bite. She’s in her 30’s and she’s had problems on the left side of her head. I adjusted her bite (that means grind down on certain teeth) within seconds of me grinding on the teeth, the pain in the left side of her jaw and in her head went away.
I can’t predict that type of work. I’m not making up that story, this is real life. God created our bodies in a way to function properly. We just need help from dentists like me, from doctors like Dr. Bill Kellas and his gang, a lot of great doctors in this area. Health is so much more important that what people really take it for granted.
One topic that I want to get to is that I was interviewed this past week for an article that’s going to be in a major magazine, and they’re asking about oil pulling. I haven’t really talked too much about oil pulling, but if you haven’t looked up what it is, or you haven’t stated doing it, you need to start doing it. It’s called oil pulling. It’s an old Ayurvedic, which is like an Indian style medicine. What they’ve done is they swish with oil in their mouth. I love talking about this, because it just adds to the definition of the oral and systemic issues and the connection with oral health. People take vegetable oil, sesame oil, sun flower oil, olive oil, coconut oil, and left it in their mouth on an empty stomach. What happens is is pulls the toxins from your mouth. That’s why it’s called oil pulling. It pulls from the teeth, the gums, and the underlying bone– which I’m a big bone guy– it pulls toxins from your mouth and miraculous results occur. It pulls toxins like bacteria, fungus, viruses, and parasites from your mouth, and then you spit out the oil.
People have noticed migraines, increased energy, autoimmune problems, all the cancers, and dental problems like gum inflammation, cavities, teeth whitening, infections in the body. All of these things. PMS, there’s just a myriad of symptoms or diseases out there that have gone away because of oil pulling.
So my recommendation, if you’ve never done that, is to go ahead and try it. Here’s how you do it: You take about a tablespoon of coconut oil and put it in your mouth. Usually before breakfast. While you’re getting ready for breakfast, let’s say you’re putting on your makeup or you’re going to take a shower, leave the coconut oil in your bedroom bathroom sink, put some coconut oil in your mouth. All you have to do is swish gently. Try not to swish hard, because it’s hard to swish for 10 – 20 minutes. You may start tasting some odd things going on in your mouth. That’s the oil pulling toxins and putting them into the oil. If it tastes bad, go ahead and spit it out and put more oil in. The more you do this, you are actually cleansing your body. It’s incredible and inexpensive.
If you don’t want to pay for an exam, go buy some coconut oil and put it in your mouth, and see the results. You’re going to find that you’re pulling out toxins not only from you mouth but from your whole body, because everything is connected. Toxins in your knee can go to your mouth and be sucked out by oil pulling, and that’s incredible. It just clarifies or reaffirms my believe that the mouth is the center of health. If you remove the toxins by oil pulling, then you know that the mouth is where it’s at. My friend Bill Kellas says that dentists can be your friends or they can be your enemies. For me, I want to be your friend. I don’t want to be your enemy. I want to be your friend. Unfortunately your dentist could be your enemy, and you don’t even know it. He or she may not even know it.
That’s why we have to focus on the root cause of problems. That, my friends, is my last recommendation. It’s about oil pulling. If it’s one of those things where you want to do what’s best for your body, if you want to detox, if you have a nagging issue that you don’t know what the cause is (let’s say there is inflammation in your body that is causing arthritis and an inflamed thryroid), it can’t hurt to go ahead and do the oil pulling. That’s one thing I can be very comfortable with all of my listeners out there doing today. How often do you do it? You can’t over do it, so if you want to do it once a day, go ahead. If you want to do it two or three times a week, go ahead and try it. Just take a little bit of oil an put it in your mouth. That’s my last advice.
I want to thank everybody, all of the producers of the show, all the helpers that made this show happen. I want to thank my wife and children who have been with me on the show a lot. I want to thank my business partners and my employees. I want to thank Dr. Godes. I want to thank Juan, James Darsey, Don Ewing, Bill Kellas, Adam Fogleman, Dave Nelson, Mark LeBeau, Mark Drucker. There are so many people out there that help make this show what it is. Also Heather Lloyd, incredible person. Love her. Great producer here.
What we’re doing is changing people’s lives. In order for me to change more people’s lives around the world, I’m going to devote my time to creating products to help the academy to teach other dentists what I do. Hopefully you’re not going to get mad at me, you’re going to be happy for us, because we’re going to be helping more people.
I’m going to give you one last opportunity. If you want to be seen by me personally before I really call it quits in doing dentistry, then you need to come see me right now. If you’re a new patient who has never come see me before and you want to see and you’re just trying to put it off until you save enough money, don’t save any more. Just come right now. Take advantage of today’s one and final promotion limited to the first 3,000 people who call right now. 760-536-1199. We only have a limited number of appointments for the end of the year, because I’m not available all the time. I do want to see everybody, but I just don’t have enough time, because I give my all. I give everything to that patient that is in front of me. I make recommendations on what I would do if it were me. That’s how I’ve done in the past, that’s how I do it today, and that’s how I’ll always do it. I’m not going to veer from it. God put me on this Earth in order to do what I’m doing today, and what I do for my patients.
What I’m going to do now is teach other dentists to become more God-like, like Jesus, and do what they think is right. Common sense dentistry is what it’s all about. Everything I’m telling you is all about practical common sense. Do what’s best for your body, and your body will reciprocate and do what’s best for you. If you want good health, a long healthy life, to be with your family, if you want to praise God, if you want to do what you’ve always dreamed of, then you need to make the right choices. You need to make decisions, and the decision today is to believe in natural dentistry. To me it’s the right dentistry. It’s what should be done.
I’ve got a few seconds, but thank you, thank you, thank you to all my listeners. I hope to see all of you soon in our office here in 2014. I’m Dr. Marvin, and this is the last time I’m saying it, but I’m out.
