Part Two – Our Emotional Body, part of my new book, explores the connection between our material body, the people around us, and the rest of the world. For example, how do stress, love, fear, pride, etc. influence our health? Our habits at work, in play, and during sleep also play a vital role in determining the state of our wellness. For example, we will consider how love heals, how to find love in the ingredients of your toothpaste, why we need to practice forgiveness, and how finding our purpose in life can positively affect our immune system, teeth, and gums.
Stress is the biggest concern I see in the emotional body that can negatively influence the balance of the whole body. Negative stress influences five main areas of your dental health, all related to chronic inflammation and oxidative stress. They include tooth loss from depression and anxiety, psycho-immunological balance, teeth grinding and jaw problems (TMJD), energy indents on physical things, and the victimhood mentality of modern day people.
This chapter will examine these areas and some of the root causes of the stressors in the environment, and will include several positive solutions, including specific products and practices to reboot your emotional habits and set you on a better course to cope with modern day stressors. Patients that learn to choose love over fear, peace over stress, and victory over victimization, have healthier immune systems, less chronic inflammation, and stay healthy.
Stay tuned next month for the Part Three – Spiritual Body section of this fascinating journey.
