…but what about our patients who don’t feel better, no matter what we do for them?
What’s missing that might enable them to finally succeed at turning back illness, turning on wellness, and appreciate your care even more? Here’s a much overlooked culprit: airway obstruction during sleep resulting from having a normal size 6 tongue inside a deficient size 3 mouth, as two cases will show shortly.
Hi, I am Dr. Felix Liao, author of Six-foot Tiger, Three-foot Cage (6T3C), welcoming you to Holistic Mouth Solutions™ (HMS). The mission of this website is to open up a new specialty area for you as a health-caring professional who values going the extra mile for your patients who in turn will send you more patients and income.
The mouth plays a pivotal role in overall health by supporting a patient’s ABCDES: Alignment, Breathing, Circulation, Digestion, Energy, and Sleep. These functions requires a fully developed set of jaws and airway that define a Holistic Mouth.
By contrast, an Impaired Mouth can eat, drink, and talk, but its narrow jaws and crowded teeth leads to a blocked airway, restless sleep, chronic fatigue, persistent pain, depression, high blood pressure, and more. There’s even a name for this condition: Impaired Mouth Syndrome. Its symptoms will persist and worsen until Impaired Mouth as a defective infrastructure for ABCDES is recognized and treated.
Impaired Mouth Syndrome – Simple Score Card
An Impaired Mouth is a defective infrastructure handicapping the whole body health of most your patients, and quite likely your own. It’s more frequent features include tongue-tie, habitual mouth breathing, malocclusion, TMJ dysfunction, crowded teeth, and more. These features force the head and spine to compensate, which in turn causes a domino effect that contributes to chronic fatigue, persistent pain, mood disorders, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, sleep apnea, teeth grinding, and more.
Holistic Mouth: A Natural Solution for Impaired Mouth Syndrome
An Impaired Mouth blocks ABCDES and undermines your clinical effectiveness. Your not-so-well patients need you to know that an Impaired Mouth lurks behind more of those recovery mysteries than you might realize. Your well patients need you to get involved because a Holistic Mouth supports total health.
Redeveloping an Impaired Mouth into a Holistic Mouth is an effective and natural solution for Impaired Mouth Syndrome, as documented in Six-foot Tiger, 3-foot Cage. This is done in part by using a special type of oral appliance to stimulate stem cells in tooth sockets and cranial sutures during sleep, and in part by integrative WholeHealth care — more on that shortly.
The solution begins with your recognition of Impaired Mouth, and continues with co-treatment by integrating your expertise and Holistic Mouth Solutions to produce breakthroughs for your patients and your reputation.
New Solution for Your Patients and Opportunities for You
How many people do you know have crowded lower front teeth, have neck-shoulder-back pains, snore, grind their teeth, wake up tired, and suffer adrenal exhaustion? Now you know how widespread Impaired Mouth Syndrome is.
What are the real clinical answers that effectively and naturally mitigate/resolve Impaired Mouth’s diverse symptoms? Here’s the good news: The human body responds wonderfully whenever sleep and airway obstruction are restored. This can be done by providing the tongue with a suitable habitat by redeveloping that “three-foot cage” framed by deficient jaws and bunched-up teeth.
Holistic Mouth Solutions combines your clinical expertise with a dentist-turned-certified Holistic Mouth Doctor who can orthopedically reconfigure impaired mouth structures for your patients, regardless of age, as long as the patient has enough healthy teeth.
You now have an opportunity to discover how to recognize this condition and be part of the integrative treatment team. Once you grow new eyes to connect the downstream symptoms with an impaired mouth, you will suddenly see the vast number of your current patients suffering Impaired Mouth Syndrome, and the opportunities to develop an additional revenue stream that can lead to loads more happy patients.
You have current patients in your office, and future patients in your community, who need you to acquire the ability to recognize an Impaired Mouth and to deliver Holistic Mouth as a solution. That’s why you may want to consider becoming an Impaired Mouth Investigator and Holistic Mouth Solutions Consultant.
In turn, you will need a dentist who is a Certified Holistic Mouth Solutions Doctor™ who knows how to turn a structurally-impaired mouth into a health-promoting Holistic Mouth. This requires a new WholeHealth mindset.
WholeHealth: A New Integrative Approach to Resolve Impaired Mouth Syndrome
Better outcome requires different thinking. That’s what Dr. Thomas Rau, MD, Medical Director of Switzerland’s Paracelsus Klinik taught me years ago. WholeHealth represents that different thinking.
WholeHealth is the “wholistic” approach to reconnect all the body’s parts and to reassemble all of its systems into a functional Whole.
Impaired Mouth Syndrome crosses all healthcare disciplines and specialties. Its oral-systemic nature calls for integrative collaboration based on WholeHealth thinking. The prevalence of Impaired Mouth Syndrome is proof that WholeHealth thinking is sorely lacking.
Medicine and dentistry has been practiced as the body has been dissected, rather than the way the human body actually works. This understanding based on separated parts has led to fragmented care approaches. In truth, there are no departmental lines inside the body. Yet, we’ve nonetheless been trained in schools and hospitals to think along and practice within departmental lines. So dentists fix teeth, and doctors fix the rest of the body, and the mouth is missing on their radar screens.
Fragmented Care is one of the most frequent reasons that patients don’t get well, despite each doctor’s good-faith efforts. As Fragmented Care separates medicine and dentistry, impaired mouth structure is a very common yet frequently overlooked health destroyers. That’s why you might never have heard of a Stomatologist (a mouth specialist). The truth is that the mouth is big — very big — in whole body health, as the homunculus in the diagram below shows.
WholeHealth means seamless clinical integration among diverse health professionals so our patients’ bodies function like a magnificent Beethoven symphony. That can’t happen when we health professionals function like individual soloists who never learn how to make great music together.
Functional medicine is on the right track. Fewer side effects and whole food nutrition are great, but wellness will remain elusive as long as chronic oxygen deficiency is in play. What’s the most common cause of chronic oxygen deficiency? A pinched airway inside an Impaired Mouth.
I propose that we treat Impaired Mouth Syndrome with WholeHealth care: a different thinking that leads to a better outcome. That’s why I created WholeHealth training programs such as OneLook, YouKnow™ webinar for you as a non-dental health professional, to help you participate in the delivery of Holistic Mouth Solutions to your patients.
