Our dental patients are requested to take a variety of supplements for adequate nutrition behind oral health.

I render emergency dental care in Kansas City.

Patients that have come back to the dental office after undergoing chemotherapy and radiation are well served when they are given information regarding anti-oxidant therapy.

I remember in biochemistry, the Krebs cycle, that demonstrated how the body takes in nutrients and breaks them down into simple sugars that form energy that allows our bodies to function.

The end product of that cycle is oxidation. Our bodies are fighting the process of oxidation throughout life. You can win the battle with anti-oxidant therapy.

Look at how metal breaks down when out in the weather with no protective layer to shield it from the process of oxidation. The metal  starts to rust when exposed to the elements.

Oxidation has a similar effect on the body. The process of oxidation if not countered with anti-oxidants will break down our cells. As the cells break down so do we.

Use anti-oxidant therapy to reduce the natural break down that occurs when we are not protected.

Vitamins A, E and C can help decrease the side effects of the chemotherapy and radiation treatments in eradication of cancer.

This anti-oxidant therapy does not effect the cancer therapies in a negative manner.

Anti-oxidant therapy may in fact potentiate the destruction of cancer cells.

Green tea4-5 cups per day has many proposed anti-cancer mechanisms. The tea has anti-oxidative reactions, enzyme activities, inhibition of lipid per oxidation, irradiation, inhibition of cellular proliferation, and anti-inflammatory activity.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is the most powerful anti-oxidant made by the body. It turns off bad genes, aging, and cancer.

On a recent radio program, KKFI, 90.1 FM, a commentary discussed one of the most sophisticated and most beneficial Eco-systems on the planet. Our rain forest in Brazil covers enough land mass to produce 20%  of the oxygen of planet earth.

Do not discount the potential for nutrition and oral health keeping our rain forest in tact.

Nutrition behind oral health is tied to good oxygen consumption.

Pharmaceutical and neutriceutical corporations use ingredients only found in the rain forest as basic compounds for their products.

Protection of our rain forest is vital to the overall health of the planet. Tribes having an intimate connection to the rain forest now use laptop computers and mobile phones to track those who destroy and pilfer the resources.

There are movements to protect large tracts of land in the rain forest for it’s survival.

Many of the areas in the rain forest remain virgin territories that have not been over farmed as the land masses in our urban areas.

Urban farms have long ago lost the mineral and nutrient content of the soil. The rain forest are rich in nutrients. For this reason you will continue to hear about discoveries of super plants coming to us from the rain forest.

Boost your immune system by taking on a regular basis quality supplements to boost your nutrition behind oral health.
