Holistic Dentistry Cares For Your Total Health
This past June, I had the pleasure of attending a seminar with Dr. Doug Cook at the St. Louis office of Dr. Simon Yu, a holistic medical doctor.
As part of a medical group of about ten professionals, most of our time and energy was devoted to the use and procedures involved in the implementation of the Electro-Dermal Screening Machine (EDS). The EDS machine is a very sophisticated computerized instrument, developed by VOll of Germany. It is used to assess the integrity of meridians or energy lines, similar to those used in acupuncture treatments.
Here’s how the process works. A major meridian line passes through each tooth, and continues on to corresponding organs. This means that any problem in the tooth can affect another part of your body!
The EDS unit can identify areas of blockage created by a tooth that contains mercury or any metal filling. Please be aware that the EDS machine is not used for diagnosis. Rather, it gathers information for further study by the dental professional.
I found it interesting that the physicians appreciated the connection between teeth, restoration and general health.
The bio-compatibility of filling materials is very important, and may be assessed using the EDS machine. I’ve included a chart below, adapted from Chinese medicine that illustrates the tooth/organ relationship.
