The Statue of Responsibility

I wanted to introduce to you the Statue of Responsibility.  When this statue was introduced to me by a friend, I was so interested in it because it was a perfect complement to what I teach in my Practice.  Here is a picture of the replica of the Statue of Responsibility as it is displayed at my front desk for all to see. Let me share what this statue represents and then discuss why it is so important to my Practice.  In the book “Man’s Search for Meaning”, Dr.  Viktor Frankl, Holocaust survivor, and father of Logotherapy, stated that there should be a compliment to the Statue of Liberty on the West Coast he called the Statue of Responsibility.  Viktor survived the Holocaust by controlling his thoughts.  He said that they could take everything else away from him, but no one could take away or control how he thought.  He stayed alive because his drive was to one day publish his manuscript on Logotherapy.  He had it almost produced for publication when the Nazi’s took it away from him and burned it.  Read More...

Has Medical Care Providers Lost Their Souls?

I just got back from a conference in Arizona featuring a famous Jungian Psychologist named Dr. James Hollis,Phd.  We were discussing many topics that concerned personal growth; doing inside out work of the heart.  There was much discussion on finding the meaning of your life, and the purpose of why you were put on the earth.  We were discussing what we are passionate about.  Jung said that we all walk in shoes to small.  It is our responsibility as members of the human race,that we continue to become the best person that we can be, to come to the world each day, to bring our best self to the playing field. Read More...

The Power of a Health Centered Approach

When people come to my office, many times they think they are going to a dentist, but have no real idea of what they are doing there.  They are what I call “Institutionalized”.  Their belief system is that if they go to the dentist and have their teeth cleaned once every six months they are doing something good for themselves with the idea that they will keep their teeth forever.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.

There are three reasons that people lose their teeth:  They are tooth decay, gum disease, and bad bite.  Now the first two are preventable. You do not have to have these if you do not want to.  The bad bite is another issue.  You need help to stop this.  It is the first two that I want to address today. Read More...


Headaches caused by Dental Issues

Headaches caused by Dental Issues

Many times I have had a patient come to my office after seeing many different specialists. They have seen Neurologists, P.T’s, Chiropractors, Pain Management Doctors just to name a few. They have been given appliances like night guards from their general dentist and have seen no relief or the symptoms getting worse. This is because no one is looking at the cause of the problem. Drugs are pushed at them, exercises, adjustments, acupuncture that has maybe given them relief but only temporary. The cause has not been addressed so the pain comes back. I have heard from people who have suffered with headaches for many years with no relief and these people are at their whit’s end. Read More...
