    Episode 107 - Why You Should Care About Your Oral Microbiome

    Dr. Spencer Wood, DDS, joins the show today to talk about his integrative approach to dentistry and using dentistry to improve our overall health. He utilizes an innovative test to determine the health of our mouths and gums and then utilizes a holistic treatment algorithm to fix what needs to be fixed. We discuss that approach and how he spearheads the movement to pay the dentist not to do dental work.Connect with Dr. Wood (https://smilebellaire.com/): https://smilebellaire.com/Nimbus Healthcare (https://nimbushealthcare.com): https://nimbushealthcare.comLifestyle Medicine (https://theghwellness.com): https://theghwellness.com

    Episode 102 - I Got It Wrong

    I want to apologize to all of my listeners. Some things were mentioned on the podcast that I did not vet properly. I also incorporated some of my own bias and agenda into the podcast's early episodes, which resulted in information being presented that was not scientifically accurate. This episode is my apology, where I dive into some of the issues I know I got wrong on previous podcast episodes. Thank you for your continued support, and God Bless.Nimbus Healthcare (https://nimbushealthcare.com):https://nimbushealthcare.comCBD Health Collection (https://cbdhealthcollection.com/?ref=gq64jy133u):https://cbdhealthcollection.com/?ref=gq64jy133u
