View: 4706"Something To Chew On" is a Health Manual first and foremost, but it is a Health Manual with a difference. The difference is a new way of seeing, a new and deeper understanding, a new perspective. There are another seven new perspectives: The First New Perspective, - The Person As Partner This approach is quite different from the usual approaches to dental disease. Traditionally the focus is on the teeth and what can be done to them. The Second New Perspective, The Person As A Whole - Holistic Dentistry - Understanding The Whole Person. This approach recognises the complex nature of a human being and the many factors that may be at play in problems manifesting in the mouth. The Third New Perspective, - the Mouth in all its glory. The mouth is often seen as nothing more than a chewing device!! This book provides a very different way of looking. This new perspective allows a completely new understanding of the mouth and all its functions. We go beyond a purely mechanical view of the mouth as a 'food chewing system' The Fourth New Perspective, - Understanding the Nature of Habit. The negative spiral and how to so bring a positive upward spiral. The Fifth New Perspective, - Understanding why we have failed in the past and how we can achieve success We move from trying to change an Effect without reference to the Cause which is, of course impossible to concentration of our effort on the shifting of Cause which must produce a shift in effect. The Sixth New Perspective, - Dealing with Stress as a Priority Once stress is understood as the source of the problem, our treatment becomes the dissolution of stress in all its various disguises, - anxiety, worry, fear, resentment, upset, regret etc. The Seventh New Perspective, - The Gentle Approach is a Requirement not an Optional Extra. To be gentle may sound like an option, something which can be used or not. Gentleness and patience are essential to healing because they dissolve stress and tension which produce disease in the first place.
