Black people were not made to eat a heavily acidic diet as their body does not respond well to having excessive acids added to its chemistry. Not adhering to a more alkaline diet is the key to many diseases people suffer from, according to herbalist Dr. Sebi (who was born Alfredo Bowman). He says many illnesses that people suffer from, like cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol can be eliminated if people ate foods that aren't heavily processed, or made in laboratories. He says people should aim to eat foods that are closer to what their ancestors in Africa did long before man knew about science and depended on it to feed them. If they did, he said they could find their health can dramatically improve. The message of a more alkaline-based diet was the message Sebi shared with Bahamians on his recent fourth visit to The Bahamas.
Although his dietary approach is relatively new to The Bahamas, throngs of people are already buying into Sebi's concept of the alkaline diet.
Annemarie Hepburn was introduced to Dr. Sebi's products seven months ago, and reports having seen remarkable results.
"My nephew would always tell me I should stop feeding my 92-year-old mother the natural foods I thought were good for her -- but once I tried the food and products from Dr. Sebi I was impressed. I had a skin problem but since doing a cleanse and using the Sea Moss I not only have clearer skin but also I'm losing weight naturally. My mother is even so impressed that she doesn't even like eating other foods she used to love like crabs and cassava," said Hepburn.
Sebi, 79, a health and food researcher originally from Honduras, has been sharing his knowledge for over 40 years and said he was led by God to do the research on taking care of the body and finding the truth about better nutrition. Despite disbelief of his concepts he is encouraged to spread the word about having more balanced and acid-free diets from his own life experience and seeing results everyday from people living on his prescribed alkaline diet.
"The mistake many people make about their health is that medicine and science are the answer to everything. But if you start from a good foundation in the first place there is no need or room for medicine to have to heal you. In fact most illnesses are caused by inflammation, and inflammation is caused by irritants or things your body does not need and constantly fights against," he said. "And the greatest of these problems is the presence of acids constantly being ingested in our bodies -- be it from fruit, starches, processed foods and preservatives to drinks and other things people eat without thinking about from day-to-day."
Sebi, who established a healing village in LaCieba, Honduras and the Dr. Sebi's Research Institute in Los Angeles, which focuses on gathering natural foods and researching what makes some foods healthier than others and what benefits they have for the body, said the problem all starts with the mucus membranes in the body that protects the body from acids and irritants. He said that due to being bombarded with these things, the mucus begins to grow in excess and there is chronic inflammation. Whether the inflammation becomes a cold or causes a chain reaction that results in other illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure or even cancer is all determined by how the body reacts to trying to regain its proper balance.
"The best way to describe how badly we are hurting ourselves is to look at a car. When you have a car you know already that you are to put gasoline in it or diesel for it to run properly and for as long as it should. The same goes for the body. We are to put in the right kind of fuel so we run well and don't have hiccups or breakdowns along the way," he said.
The herbalist said the natural foods man should eat have long been lost over time, but that there are still many natural foods that are alkaline-based that people can be eating like sea moss, wild rices, agave sugars and fish.
"While this is what many of us should be eating today you have to know what's good for your body. For instance, although most birds fly all of them aren't made to eat the same things," said Sebi. "An eagle knows he must eat meat. He asks no one if it's healthy or if he needs more vegetables and starch. Other birds know they must eat fruit and seeds. They will never eat meat. So the same for humans. We are all wired a certain way to eat certain things so we can benefit the most from the foods we consume rather than be harmed."
According to the herbalist, disease and illness only exist in acidic environments, which is why Sebi encourages people to know how their body functions and to intake more alkaline products.
"This is not just to say to eat more natural foods, but to know where your natural foods are coming from. Many of the acids we are exposed to are from food we assume are harmless like cane sugar and starches. Cane sugar is not good because not only is it processed, but many of the strains of cane used today are made in laboratories and therefore are acidic in nature."
Return to eating natural foods
Sebi believes returning to eating natural foods untouched by science will promote more healthy cell growth, eliminate unhealthy ones and diminish disease and premature cellular deterioration in the body. He and his natural cell food research teams have been able to gather and readily provide the foods he talks about
for health conscious consumers.
Douglas Storr who was already health conscious said he was enticed into giving Sebi's products a try because he's always looking to do even better things for his body.
An avid fan of exercise, Storr would suffer with muscle pains and other aches normally, but he said once he found more natural products through Dr. Sebi's products he was able to fulfill his need to eat more healthily and reduce his aches.
"I was really impressed with the products like sea moss because it has done so much good for me. I had experienced a really bad tumble a few weeks ago and I really couldn't walk on it (foot). It was bruised, it hurt and I knew I had to go to a doctor, but before I did that I tried the sea moss which is supposed to help cell rejuvenation and healing first. I was amazed that as bad as my sprain was I was feeling better within three days," he said. "I never experienced something like that. I also used the sea moss to treat my dandruff and that too went away within a few uses. I really have more energy now than I have had before because of being more careful with my diet I feel."
Dr. Sebi who was born in the Spanish Honduras, never attended school -- not even kindergarten, according to his official biography. Instead, he took cues on being obedient to the procession of life from his grandmother. His early days of play and observation by the river and in the forest, coupled with guidance from his grandmother, afforded Sebi the foundation to be obedient to what he terms is the "truth" in his later life.
He went to the United States as a self-educated man who was diagnosed with asthma, diabetes, impotency and obesity. After unsuccessful treatments with conventional doctors, Sebi was led to an herbalist in Mexico where he found healing success from all of his ailments. He began creating natural vegetation cell food compounds geared for inter-cellular cleansing and the revitalization of all the cells that make up the human body.
Inspired by the personal healing experience and knowledge he gained, he began sharing the compounds with others, which gave birth to the USHA Research Institute and the Usha Healing Village.
Dr. Sebi's products can be found locally at New Life Natural Cell Foods on East Street south.
The body is like an orchestra -- in order to get the best music -- all sections must be functioning at an optimum level according to Dr. Sy Pierre, the most recent medical professional to speak at the monthly Doctors Hospital Distinguished Lecture Series.
The anesthesiologist spoke on advances being made in anti-aging treatments and the treatment of degenerative diseases. He shed light on detoxification, diet, exercise and dietary supplementation, as well as bio-energy medicine, bio-oxidative medicine and bio-molecular medicine.
He told people that filled the hospital's conference room that no matter how many hormones someone pumps into a person, if their general health is not good, that it would not make any difference. And that the goal of medical professionals is really the prevention and treatment of the chronic, degenerative diseases that are at epidemic proportions.
With so many names -- anti-aging medicine, interventional endocrinology, orthomolecular medicine, functional medicine, allopathic medicine, alternative medicine, holistic medicine and integrative medicine -- Dr. Pierre said no matter what it's called, it all means one thing, the provision of the correct substance for the correct disease at the correct time with the goal being the prevention and treatment of chronic degenerative diseases.
Chronic degenerative diseases include cancer, heart and blood vessel disease, diabetes, hypthyroidism, hormonal dysfunction, menopause, andropause (male menopause) and other endocrine diseases, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, Chron's disease, ulcerative colitis, autism, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.
According to Dr. Pierre, The Bahamas is in the midst of an inflammatory crisis. In a graph he showed his audience what medical experts consider should be normal aging -- a person's birth, leveling off between ages 25 and 35, then going rapidly down to pass on to the afterlife between age 75 and 80. But he said what they're seeing now is people who are healthy a lot shorter than the average -- people attaining the age of 21-25 remaining healthy for a few years and then declining chronically, starting with hypertension, diabetes, arthritis and eventually cancer and some other disease.
He said with a disease like diabetes, at one time medical professionals used to break it down into juvenile diabetes and adult onset diabetes; but now it's so common early on that medical professionals just call it diabetes.
"We are in the midst of an inflammatory crisis," said Dr. Pierre.
Causing all of the inflammation, he said, is the presence of reactive oxygen molecules or free radicals; poor diet and lack of proper supplementation; lack of exercise; toxic personal care products; environmental toxins and electrical pollution, among other causes.
Free radicals or reactive oxygen species (ROS) are produced normally in humans as byproduct of oxygen utilization for energy. Normal amounts are essential for destruction of microbes, detoxification and excretion of toxins. Excessive amounts are dangerous.
"Reactive oxygen species are produced normally by humans or most animals that utilize oxygen for energy. And they actually have a good purpose as most things that we produce do and don't get rid off," said Dr. Pierre. "You produce them to fight increasing amounts of environmental toxins. But in excessive amounts he said they start attacking themselves and result in autoimmune diseases.
"When the immune system is attacked by these free radicals you get diseases such as Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, arthritis, Chron's disease, inflammatory bowel disease and eventually cancer. If the endocrine system is attacked you see things such as diabetes, thyroid disease, ovarian cyst, endometriosis. Heart and blood vessel attacks result in hypertension, heart attacks and eventually strokes. Neurological problems include autism, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other diseases."
Poor Bahamian diet
According to Dr. Pierre, the Bahamian diet -- one that's rich in sugar, processed carbohydrates, and unfermented dairy products - is a huge problem. He said the diet causes Hyperinsulinemia or Dysmetabolic Syndrome X, Gut Dysbiosis, Leaky Gut Syndrome and GERD.
"When you take large amounts of sugar and carbohydrate, the body responds by producing insulin, an androgenic or growth hormone. It's like a drug ... A heroin or cocaine addict is always trying to achieve that first high, but your body always responds in a way to say I'm not going to let it do it, so you take more sugar but you need more sugar to get the same effect, because your body is resisting it. In addition to driving sugar into the cells, insulin also creates plaque around your arteries and blood vessels. It also creates inflammation in the pelvis."
Dr. Pierre said people plagued with endometriosis and pelvic inflammatory disease should have their fasting insulin measured.
He told his audience that everyone has more bacteria and other microbes in their bowel than they have cells in their entire bodies and that they are good and bad but usually there is a balance. He said when a person takes in excessive amounts of sugar it feeds yeast like Candida, the abnormal bacteria and they get an overgrowth. The overgrowth, he added, creates tears in the bowel that allow "stuff" to leak into the blood stream, resulting in what is called Gut Dysbiosis.
"Because you're getting all these abnormal substances getting introduced into the body, your immune (system) sees it and attacks it; so now you have the autoimmune disease and now the body becomes mixed up. It does not know what is self and what is non-self so in addition to attacking these molecules, it attacks the blood vessels, kidneys, pancreas --you get diabetes."
One of the best forms of defense is offense, according to the doctor who said that exercise is important to increase oxygenation for immune system stimulation and detoxification.
"We all need to sweat. Sweat is probably one of the best methods of detoxification," he said.
While you get your sweat on, he said sensible sun exposure should also be taken into account because without sun exposure you miss the all-important Vitamin D, a hormone that he said most people are deficient in
"Black Bahamians in particular avoid the sun like the plague, but what is terrible is that the darker you are probably the more you need to be in the sun. Someone from Scandinavia who has red hair, freckles, blue eyes ... they can go out in the sun for 15 minutes and start to burn. There is a reason for that. Their skin is fair because of where they're descended from. They don't get a lot of sunshine so they need to absorb sun quickly whenever it is there. If obviously you're descendant from somewhere along the equator your skin needs to be darker to protect you from the sun, and so therefore the darker you are the more you need to be in the sun, and our people don't like to go in the sun," he said. According to Dr. Pierre, being in the sun is also a good method of detoxification, as it allows for sweating.
Personal care product alert
The doctor also urged people, especially women to be aware of the many personal care products they use in terms of toxicity.
"I usually say I think of a female in the morning getting dressed -- she may use shampoo, conditioner, she has hair color, relaxers, if they have weave some of them are using glue, one of the most toxic things known to man, mascara, eyeliner, lipstick, gloss, facial creams, lotion, perfume, deodorant, nail polish, toothpaste, mouthwash, shaving cream, soap, dental amalgams (fillings), all of these things contain small amounts of lead, arsenic, mercury, aluminum, lead, iron, PCBs, petroleum distillates, things that are very toxic. What we have to understand is that fat tissue and in particular breast tissue is used as a toxic depot. When your body can't deal with substances it goes into these lymph nodes. Once they go into there and into the breast tissue if the body can't deal with it right then, it kind of pushes it and stays in the breast tissue until you sweat it or it leaks out slowly. When you have all of these substances going into your breast tissue it's no wonder breast cancer is so high," said Dr. Pierre.
"Any of these substances by themselves are probably not that bad, but once you start adding five, 10, 15, 20 substances, for five, 10, 15, 20 years of your life, your diet is poor, you don't exercise, you don't sweat, I'm surprised that the rate of breast cancer isn't higher. And it will go higher if we don't stop," he said.
As far as environmental toxins, Dr. Pierre says there isn't much that can be done about it because those toxins are in the air.
As for the diet, Dr. Pierre's advise is that people eat 60 percent raw or minimally cooked vegetables; 20 percent protein in some form whether eggs, meat, chicken or seafood; 10 percent nuts and about 10 percent fruits.
"A lot of people fool themselves and say I eat a lot of fruit so I'm healthy, fruit has a lot of sugar -- if you eat a lot of sugar you're going to secrete a lot of insulin and you cause all those bad things. Like anything else, too much of any one thing is no good. It's better to eat more vegetables than fruit," he said.
He endorses moderate exercise and said people should take advantage of walks on the beach that would also allow them to get sensible sun exposure.
And he told them to search out non-toxic personal care products, substances like baking soda which he said is a good deodorant and antiperspirant, toothpaste and foot powder.
Getting rid of toxins
Sweating to detoxify is the best way to rid the body of toxins as are coffee enemas and colonics, according to Dr. Pierre. He said an old therapy Pulse Electro Magnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy is coming back again. The therapy sends different waves of energy to the cells that are not functioning and kinds of shocks them back into functioning normally. He said if a person has cells of their pancreas that are not functioning properly and they have PEMF, they may be able to decrease the amount of insulin that they have to take. Or that if they have arthritis or joint issues and pain and they get their collagen and all their substances and their cells start to work properly again, they may have less joint pain and actually be more mobile.
He said oxidative medicine are more cutting edge unique therapies like the use of hyperbaric oxygen chambers and pushing pure ozone into cells of the body to increase oxygenation to decrease toxins and help the body to function a lot better. He said these treatments are good for people with hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, joint pain and arthritis.
Bio-identical hormone therapy
In biomolecular medicine a physician writes a prescription, but according to Dr. Pierre, what they are now trying to do is use more normal or natural occurring substances.
"If someone has a flu you can give them a high dose -- 50, 100, 200 grams of Vitamin C intravenously into their veins. This is a normal substance, it won't cause any problems and it will cure them over a day or two, especially for colds, flus. Substances like Vitamin C, high dose B vitamins, magnesium, zinc, these things are things are what our bodies lack and may be the reason for us getting the infection in the first place," he said.
In bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, hormones that are identical to those that the body produces and treat that are low or absent in bodies are replaced. It is the same principle used in diabetes when the pancreas does not produce sufficient insulin.
"You're giving your body something that is now gone to the point where it cannot produce it in sufficient amounts any longer."
Depending on the hormone replaced, the medicine may be taken by mouth, may be used as a cream or get that is rubbed on the skin, or by the injection of a small amount of medicine under the skin a few times a week.
Primary replacement hormones include thyroid hormone, cortisol, estrogen, progesterone and pregnenolone, testosterone, growth hormone, DHEA and melatonin.
According to Dr. Pierre, without a proper amount of thyroid hormone no other hormone or system works in the body.
"We all need adequate amounts of thyroid hormone. With deficiency you see decreased energy, chronic fatigue, early morning fatigue, decreased mental acuity, depression, weight gain, hair loss at the outer eyebrows, muscle joints, aches and pains, fibromyalgia, constipation and high cholesterol."
Progesterone deficiency in women he said causes early menopause. He said it's not so much the progesterone deficiency, but the fact that it's out of balance. Women he said suffer with insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks, mood swings, breast soreness, bowel changes, hot flashes, fibrocystic disease, ovarian cysts, abnormal uterine bleeding. He said progesterone deficiency in men isn't seen much, but if it does, it can cause sleep disturbances and anxiety.
Dr. Pierre said progesterone deficiency starts in the mid-30s, while estrogen deficiency starts later in life in the 50s and 60s. But he said if a person is replacing estrogen, they must also take progesterone as well.
"They must be used together [as] estrogen by itself will probably increase your rate of cancer."
Estrogen deficiency in men he said usually results in osteoporosis and bone loss. In women the results are hot flashes, night sweats, depression, dry, wrinkled and cracked skin, especially of the face, headaches, bone loss, vaginal dryness, recurrent urinary tract infections, strokes, heart attacks and cancer.
The primary anti-inflammatory
According to Dr. Pierre people have to have Cortisol, the primary anti-inflammatory of the body which is produced by the adrenal gland which has the richest store of Vitamin C in any organ of the body.
"If people are deficient [in Cortisol] they may have multiple chemical sensitivities, allergies, joint and muscle pains, loss of muscle and bone, high cholesterol, sugar and salt craving."
As people hit their 70s, Dr. Pierre said patients undergoing orthopedic surgery should look into having growth hormone therapy to make their surgical procedure a lot less likely to have side effects.
Growth hormone is a big player in all connective tissue such as bone, muscle, fat and any other connective tissue. It optimizes a person's immune function and is a good thing to replace if it's low according to the doctor. He said maximally it takes four to six weeks to start working so if a person needs surgery, they should speak to their surgeon a few weeks prior to their surgery.
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) he said is the most abundant hormone in the body. When it's low he said people have a decreased sex drive, have frequent upper respiratory track infections, colds and flus, decreased body hair, weight gain and osteoporosis.
He said melatonin decrease is usually seen in older people who sometimes have difficulty sleeping and wake in the middle of the night. He said melatonin replacement may actually alleviate the problem and should not cause any side effects if used in normal doses.
o Dr. Pierre described HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) as the new wave hormone that is now sold for weight loss. HCG is produced naturally in humans. It's replacement is usually given by injecting a small amount of the liquid under the skin of the arm, leg or thigh, two to three times per week. HCGT is used to treat weight management challenges in men and women. It is also used to treat male menopause or andropause. But he cautioned that if it is being used that HCG should be supervised by a physician who is familiar with its use.
Olympian Andretti Bain is seeking to make the transitional step from competing to becoming his own boss.
The 26-year-old has opened a sports and lifestyle nutritional store, located on Farrington Road and George Street, designed to provide Bahamians with another option for healthier living. Bain sees the opening of his store as the first step of his transition from an athlete to a businessman. The Olympic silver medalist also wants to move back to The Bahamas.
He said: "I really would like to be home training. It was always my goal to do that but there are certain things that we are lacking here that really prevent me and other athletes from doing so. Some of the things were the availability and the affordability of proper sports and lifestyle nutritional products. It is very important to have your supplements and vitamins. I figured that in trying to fulfill a personal need that I have that I will go ahead and create a store to do that. It is one less hurdle I will have to clear when it comes to making that transition from training in the states to training home."
The store will serve and provide all multi-vitamins, be they for sports, recreation or everyday use. Diet and weight loss products as well as consultative services on sports and lifestyle nutritional products or dietary weight loss exercise programs.
Bain said that opening this store is just one of the many business ideas he plans to execute. The nutrition store was a priority he said and took about two months to put into operation. The 400-meter runner used the time off, after not qualifying for the London Olympic Games, to start up the store.
"With my busy schedule training and competing, I didn't have the time to do it in the past," said Bain. "After I wasn't able to make this year's Olympic team, I finally had two months free from track and field where I could pursue other goals. The blue print was already set and the business plan was in place. After I had this entire summer, it was just a matter of me getting focused and going to work, doing all the physical labor when it comes to the store.
"Because of my experience in professional athletics, I am very knowledgeable when it comes to what type of supplements and vitamins athletes will need to take. Anything that I don't know, there are computers in the store where we will be able to do the research. I will also have nutritionist and dieticians on call who will provide advice. The advice is not something that I am selling, it is more or less for the product. This is a business that I have set out for a while to do. My transition from track and field to life after [is the store and] all the research needed to run and operate a sports and lifestyle nutritional store."
Bain made sure to clear the about his future in track by assuring that he is not quitting, but rather he plans to compete until the 2020 Olympics. He plans to continue training.
The quartermiler made his first Olympics team in 2008. He advanced into the semifinal of the Beijing Games after clocking 45.96 seconds in the opening rounds. Bain placed seventh in the semifinal in 45.52 seconds. As the lead off runner for the men's 4x400m team in 2008, Bain teamed up with Michael Mathieu, Andrae Williams and Chris Brown to capture the silver medal in 2:58.03. The United States of America won the gold in 2:55.39.
He added: "As much as track and field is a part of my life, track and field is not my life."
Bain is giving his stamp of approval for all the supplements and other products that are in his store. He said all the products are authentic and meet international, regional and local medical standards.
President Bill Clinton, the world's president, may have taken a vow to improve his health to continue his mission of saving this world after his two mandates as president of the United States. He has engaged lately in a rigorous diet that excludes all meat and dairy products from his daily intake to nourish his body.
Complaints of joint pain seem common place and are even expected as people age. Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States affecting more than 40 million people. It is more common as you get older, especially in the elderly, however it can occur at any age, and the word literally means pain within a joint. Arthritis, describes the inflammation and swelling of the cartilage and lining of the joints, along with increased fluid in the joints.
Arthritis and the feet
The feet seem more susceptible to arthritis than other parts of the body because the feet have 52 bones and 33 joints that can be affected, and they bear the brunt of walking and standing. Arthritis in the feet can cause loss of motion in the joints and loss of independence, but that may be avoided with early diagnosis and proper medical care.
There are three types of arthritis that may affect your foot and ankle.
Osteoarthritis is wear and tear arthritis. It is common in people after they reach middle age. Over the years, the smooth cartilage at the ends of the bone wears down causing inflammation, swelling, and pain in the joint as the bone edges rub together. It progresses slowly and the pain and stiffness worsen over time.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease seen in joints all over the body caused by a person's own immune system attacking and destroying the cartilage.
Arthritis can develop after an injury to the foot or ankle, especially if the injuries were ignored and not treated. This type of arthritis is similar to osteoarthritis and may develop years after a fracture or severe sprain.
Gout is a form of arthritis caused by a buildup of the salts of uric acid -- a normal by-product of protein in the diet. The big toe joint is the most commonly affected area. Avoiding proteins such as shellfish, red meat, cold cuts and cheese can prevent or delay the attack of arthritis.
There are other causes of arthritis including bacterial and viral infections to the joint, bowel disorders, and even some drugs.
Different forms of arthritis affect the body in different ways. Once cartilage is damaged it cannot be reversed. Signs and symptoms of arthritis of the foot vary, depending on which joint is affected. Common symptoms include joint pain or tenderness, early morning stiffness or reduced motion, swelling and difficulty walking.
Early diagnosis is important for effective treatment of all types of arthritis. Your podiatrist will diagnose arthritis by using medical history, a physical examination and other tests. Additional tests may include an exam of the way you walk (gait analysis). This shows how the bones in the leg and foot affect walking. X-rays can show changes in the joint space between the bones or in the shape of the bones themselves. A bone scan, computed tomographic (CT) scan, or magnetic resonance image (MRI) may also be ordered for more evaluation.
The objectives of treatment of arthritis are controlling inflammation, preserving or restoring joint function and curing the disease if possible. Depending on the type, location, and severity of the arthritis, there are many types of treatment available. Arthritis may be treated in many ways.
Education is very important. Physical therapy and exercise are important to make sure the joint continues to move. Other non-surgical treatment options include pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications to reduce swelling, shoe inserts (orthotics), custom-made shoes, such as a stiff-soled shoe with a rocker bottom, a brace or a cane, weight loss and control or nutritional supplements such as Chondritine and Glucosamine and medications, such as a steroid medications or fluid injected into the joint.
If arthritis doesn't respond to non-surgical treatment, surgical treatment might be considered. The choice of surgery will depend on the type of arthritis, the severity of the disease, the impact of the disease on the joints, and the location of the arthritis. Sometimes more than one type of surgery will be needed.
Surgery performed for arthritis of the foot and ankle may include arthroscopic debridement to clean out the joint, arthrodesis or fusing the joints together permanently, and arthroplasty, a joint replacement.
Remember, arthritis is a chronic, long term condition that will require long term treatment. If you have symptoms of arthritis you don't have to suffer in silence, there is relief available if you see your podiatrist.

It is here again! Dental month! October 2012 has come and we still have all of our teeth; or most of them; or hopefully some of them. In any event, let us give Dental Month a big welcome.
It has been 11 years since the Dental Month initiative of the Department of Public Health, was put into action. The initiative focuses on strengthening the dental knowledge of the general public. The stigma attached to dentistry has to be shed and shredded. Dental healthcare professionals are here to help and they are not here to harm.
