Alka-White At The Integrative Healthcare Symposium
Q: HOW MANY INTEGRATIVE DOCTORS DOES IT TAKE TO CHANGE A LIGHT BULB?
A: NONE, THE LIGHT BULB HAS TO WANT TO CHANGE ITSELF
This past week was the Integrative Healthcare Symposium at the Hilton Hotel in New York City. We want to thank Integrative Healthcare for the opportunity to speak at this year's symposium. There were well over a thousand doctors that attended the event to discuss and shape the future of healthcare. Being at the 2018 Symposium gave us the opportunity to discover cutting edge technologies. It also allowed us to share our product, ALKA-WHITE natural whitening mouthwash and toothpaste in one, with well respected doctors and patrons to the event.
This event brought together big names in the Integrative Medical field such as Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Joseph Pizzorno and Dr. Mark Hyman. The Oral-Systemic Connection was literally on many speakers lips. Dr. Chopra spoke about the "Future of Well-being" and Dr. Pizzorno mentioned the dangers from dental amalgam as a major source of mercury. Dr. Hyman presented on “What the heck should I eat?” This question can be very difficult to answer when you consider the ethical aspects around your eating decisions, food allergies, eating for certain medical conditions and all the diet options out there from Paleo to Ketogenic to Vegan. It gets very confusing when we hear contradicting information like excluding meat or increasing your meat intake is the healthiest way to eat. One aspect we agree with is the the importance of an alkaline diet.
Many speakers from organizations warned that chronic periodontal disease and infected root canals cause chronic inflammation, heart disease, diabetes and senility. Dr. Lewis Gross, spoke about the oral systemic connection and how an imbalanced oral and gut microbiome brought by modern day lifestyles can have detrimental consequences to your oral and overall health. The blinders are being removed from dentistry—teeth and mouth are the windows to the microbiome. Dentists are the doctors of oral medicine, not only repair men—we’re here as preventative healthcare.
Our goal at ALKA-WHITE is to reverse these effects and provide a healthy, all natural way to balance, freshen and restore your smile.
Thank you Arden and Antonin for hosting the ALKA-WHITE booth and offering free saliva testing. AnaMaria Pontes, MS, RD, did a spectacular job as co-speaker with ALKA-WHITE Creator Lewis Gross, DDS explaining the systemic and oral benefits of "The Alkaline Dental Diet".
