In the ideal clinic, the patient's teeth and dental history are accorded prime importance. Copious clinical research has established that mercury-based dental fillings, root canals, incompatible dental materials and metal, and jawbone infections (from previously extracted teeth) can pose serious health problems throughout the body. In many cases, unresolved or undetected dental problems are a key contributing cause to acute and chronic health problems and must be addressed for permanent relief of symptoms.
The practitioner in this ideal clinic, must even examine the patient's lifestyle for further contributing causes. Although more widely understood in Germany and China, geopathic factors such as harmful electromagnetic field disturbances can undermine health. Gamma rays from the atmosphere may also enter the ground and "feed" upwards into the house, creating ill health. In Germany, such places are called "cancer houses" because of the high incidence of cancer among people sleeping in beds positioned over such energy fields.
Another key aspect of lifestyle is how people feel and express themselves emotionally. Research clearly shows that emotional and psychological factors such as long-term unresolved trauma, resentment, anger or grief can set forces in motion that eventually result in physical illness. The ideal clinician must understand who the person is as well as what their problems are.
Blood profiles, electrodermal screening, thermography and Doppler ultrasound can help identify the most appropriate and individualized nutritional and herbal supplementation program for the patient. Research shows that the physician's genuine caring, insightful attitude, and positive, optimistic outlook can also act as a valuable "health supplement." Ideal clinicians dispense these qualities liberally.
As one of our doctors said in these pages, "The moment patients and staff walk through the door, the healing process begins."
Blood is classified into 4 blood types or groups according to the presence of type A and type B antigens on the surface of red blood cells. These antigens are also called agglutinogens and pertain to the blood cells' ability to agglutinate, or clump together. Type O blood (containing neither type) is found in 47% of the Caucasian population; type A, 41%; type B, 9%; type AB, 3%. Another form of blood grouping is according to Rh-positive and Rh-negative types, based on the distribution of 6 different Rh antigens.
