Just How Common Is BPA in Dental Sealants?

Posted on Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

According to the logic of the American Dental Association, the BPA released from many dental sealants is “safe” because kids get more exposure to this endocrine disrupting chemical from other products. We didn’t say we understand how that logic works. We can say that it totally sidesteps the fact that exposure from sealants does occur. […]


With Dental Implants, It’s Not Just About Biocompatibility

Posted on Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

When it comes to dental implants, there are some who say that so long as they’re “biocompatible” ceramic zirconium, implants are a-ok. But biocompatibility is hardly the issue. Any kind of implant will necessarily interfere with the body’s self-regulating abilities; will disturb the biological terrain. As Dr. V has noted before, Biological Terrain Analysis (BTA) […]


The Causes of Illness & Degenerative Diseases, Part 3: The Homotoxins All Around Us (and In Us)

Posted on Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

By Gary M. Verigin, DDS, CTN The word “toxicology” is derived from two Greek words: toxikon, meaning poison, and logia, meaning a field of study. Homotoxicology, then, is the study of how toxins affect humans, homo sapiens. It was developed in the mid-20th century by German physician Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg and is known today as bioregulatory […]


A (Bio)Logical Path to Health

Posted on Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

According to new data from the California Health Care Foundation, Americans spent just under $120 billion on dental care in 2015. That’s a lot of money – until you consider that it’s a measly 4% of the total spent on health care that year. All told, Americans spent $3 trillion on all health care that […]


Here We Go Again with the Caries Vaccine

Posted on Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

Every few years, you hear about some new tooth decay vaccine that’s being developed, certain to make dental caries a thing of the past. And then, for another year or three, when some other research team emerges with yet another promising candidate vaccine. The latest turned up just last week. According to a report in […]


The Causes of Illness & Degenerative Diseases, Part 2: Some Basic Principles of Biological Regulation

Posted on Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017

By Gary M. Verigin, DDS, CTN The term homeostasis was first defined in 1932 by Walter Bradford Cannon. He created it by bringing together two Greek terms: homoios, which means “the same,” “like,” or “resembling,” and stasis, which means “standing,” “position,” or “posture.” Homeostasis, then, literally means “to remain in the same condition,” as close […]


A Tale of Two Surveys, or Dentistry’s Role in Healthcare

Posted on Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Once upon a time – earlier this year, to be exact – a Pew survey suggested that for all the problems with American healthcare these days, people just lurve their physicians. According to the survey, almost 90% of those who saw a doctor in the past year felt their provider “really cared about their health […]


It’s the Environment, Not the “Germ”

Posted on Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Long ago and far away…well, back in the mid-19th century, scientists like Claude Bernard and Antoine Bechamp first challenged Pasteur’s “germ theory” of disease. But while Pasteur may have been declared winner of that battle, science continues to vindicate Bernard, Bechamp, and the many other scientists who followed their research path. For instance, consider the […]


“Holistic” and “Biological” Are NOT Interchangeable Terms

Posted on Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

Over the past decade or so, conventional dentistry has finally begun to appreciate the relationship between oral and systemic health. It’s a welcome change. Just the other day, we ran across an article on dentistry’s “paradigm shift.” The dental field is experiencing a paradigm shift in which the mouth is no longer viewed as an […]
