My ideal patient is the one who comes to my practice for a check or to remove tartar only once a year, but in order to have this situation it is important to work on prevention globally: diet, oral hygiene, respiration, balanced mastication, swallowing…
The objective is to prevent and treat, where it is possible, mastication-related dysfunctions without being obliged to use the traditional brace, using more natural aids on patients older than 3.
A balanced mastication reflects a inner balance, a neuronal ability of integration between left and right hemispheres, an ability learnt when we were children that shows a complete growth of the nervous system, from intellectual, psycho emotional and aptitudinal points of view and also a new way to see the world.
Anyway, dedication and regularity, the ability to find our own room in this chaotic, everyday life and the will to change, are necessary to achieve these predetermined goals.
Our body has all the necessary tools to heal itself and answer the external stimulus. We only need to focus on the messages it sends us to understand if we have taken the right direction; human soul has the tendency to head for higher levels of well-being, to evolve towards a greater awareness. So, why do we often stand in the way of this natural motion? Illnesses, disorders and sufferings are all signals we get from our body and they tell us that something is slowing down, blocking or even diverting this motion. So, it is good if they come and we are able to interpret them as messages that tell us the right path to take.
Our body is the temple of our soul and it expresses who we are in every part of it; it constantly has to face distresses coming from the outside, and it has to be supported from the inside to cope with them. The correct functioning of immune system and healing stimulation become very important to achieve this aim. Being balanced means more ability to face external distresses, no matter their origin. Our task is to protect and stimulate this inner ability, meeting nature laws while respecting ourselves. That is why the air we breathe and the food we give our body have a key role: their quality and quantity have to be proportioned to who we are and should help us maintain this balance.
