Dr. Swidler’s pioneering work in the emerging field of “whole body dentistry” has combined dentistry with Cranial Osteopathy.

Body/Jaw Alignment

While most dentists’ primary focus is on replacing broken teeth, bringing health to the gums and creating beautiful smiles, part of the approach at Medicine Wheel Dental is based on a totally new paradigm of understanding. Dentistry, and specifically the position of the jaw and bite, are absolutely foundational to stabilizing both body alignment, function, and helping create the opportunity for high level wellness.

Fall Cleanse: Release Nourish and Refresh

Medicine Wheel Dental & Wellness Center Presents

Fall Cleanse: Release, Nourish & Refresh

with Maria Kalima, RN, MS, E-RYT, Ayurvedic Health Specialist

Thursday October 11 thru Monday October 22, 2012

Ayurveda, Yoga’s Sister Science, is an ancient healing modality based upon knowledge and awareness of

us and the dry air quality of the fall comes into play. Both of these combined can be felt as a bloating and or a very dry quality in the body and sense of scttered thoughts in the winter season.

Although each season is perfect in its own way, there are imbalances that can occur as we move thru our stressful daily lives. Vata out of balance can manifest as dry skin, hair & mucus membranes; a feeling of tiredness to deep exhaustion; nervousness to anxious depression; and slow digestion to constipation.

If you want to cleanse safely, joyfully and with guidance, consider joining Maria for 2 weeks of guided cleansing. This is NOT a fast. Maria brings to the celebration of Fall a specialized cleanse based on her vast knowledge and training in Ayurveda, yoga therapy, and wellness eating. She will guide you in this journey through the seasons at the level of your choice.
