Dr. Idelle Brand: Your Mouth is the Window to Your Body (Part1)



What does your mouth tell you about your state of health? Perhaps more than you can imagine.

Your mouth a window.

This blog shares 2 easy steps on how to keep your window clean.   



                Dr. Idelle Brand was the first featured guest on Your Life and Purpose Revealed on The Living well Talk Radio Network. The second part of Your Life and Purpose Revealed is dedicated to Live Psychic Readings. Dr. Idelle was the first psychic reading of the evening and Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos’ tarot card reading technique of using Dr. Brand’s astrological sign to determine her conventional playing card to convert into her Life-time Tarot Card that explains her personality and life decisions, is posted at the bottom of this blog, along with other callers seeking answers to their Life and Purpose.  


              For over thirty years Dr. Idelle Brand has been in the practice of dentistry. During the past ten Dr. Brand has integrated holistic elements of health and healing when working with her patients.


              Although her dental training and practice was conventionally based in treatment, something happened eight years ago that changed her life and her views on dentistry, forever.


             Dr. Idelle Brand contracted deadly Lyme disease and turned to holistic medicine when conventional methods failed. She struggled with this disease for eight years.



            Lyme disease is an infection that is spread by ticks. You can get Lyme disease if you are bitten by an infected tick. However, most people who have been bitten by a tick do not develop Lyme disease. It's still important to see your doctor if you have a tick attached to you.


If left untreated Lyme disease may progress in stages from mild symptoms to serious, long-term disabilities.

             There are three stages of Lyme disease:
·         Stage 1: early localized in the first four weeks.
·         Stage 2: early disseminated,
·         Stage 3:  late persistent.


Watch for the “bull’s eye” red rash on your body.



               Some people with Lyme disease have a rash called erythema migrans at the site of the tick bite. The rash is usually circular and it gets larger over time. Other people don't have any symptoms in the early stages of Lyme disease and do not remember having had a tick bite.



             In the radio interview Dr. Brand shared how her flu-like symptoms without a rash alerted her to the problem her doctors were missing.


These symptoms included:

  1. ·         Lack of energy, which is the most common symptom.
  2. ·         Headache and stiff neck.
  3. ·         Fever and chills.
  4. ·         Muscle and joint pain.
  5. ·         Swollen lymph nodes.




            She then shares two details concerning her secret weapons for overcoming this painful and debilitating disease:
  1. ·         detoxing
  2. ·         using energy medicine



            Since that time, Dr. Brand, used the many holistic modalities she learned by trial-and-error. This included becoming a Reiki Master and a Hypnotherapist. She said, “The mouth is the window to the body, as the eyes are the window to the soul.”


The mouth can show evidence of heart disease, nutrition deficiency, and inflammation.


             Dr. Brand defined Holistic dentistry biologic dentistry, or bio-compatible dentistry as the equivalent of complementary and alternative medicine for dentistry.   It is also called alternative dentistry. Dr. Brand’s Holistic dentistry practice emphasizes approaches to dental care which consider the patient's dental health in the context of their entire physical as well as emotional or spiritual health.  It is considered part of the alternative health movement.


             Although the holistic dental community is diverse in its practices and approaches, common threads evident in Dr. Brands practice include strong opposition to the use of amalgam which contain mercury and other potentially toxic materials in dental fillings, nonsurgical approaches to gum disease, and the belief that root canals may endanger systemic health of the patient through the spread of trapped dental bacteria to the body.


            Dr. Brand explained that although she graduated from a conventional school of dentistry and has a degree in conventional dentistry, her Holistic dentistry is considered by conventional dentists, to be unconventional dentistry. And that is “okay” with Dr. Brand.


            Dr. Brand suggested to the listeners that they should, “find and consult a dentist who will listen to you and uses digital x-rays. This new computerized of x-ray uses 90% less radiation than the older version.”


 Thank you Dr. Idelle Brand for sharing her amazing journey through Lyme Disease and into Wholistic Dentistry with our listeners, and to you, our valued listeners, for your support.
