Today on the Holistic Dentistry Show, Dr. Sanda speaks to Monica Hershaft, a holistic practitioner, about identifying mystery illnesses and the connection to hidden dental dysfunction.

Growing up vegan, Monica shares how she eventually developed a choline deficiency and started to eat meat again. An NRT doctor helped her regain her health, which inspired her to become a nutritionist. She shares some of the most common mystery illnesses she sees in her Scottsdale practice, which are almost always symptoms of the nervous system being blocked or stretched. We discuss the importance of removing metal fillings, how hard it is to remove mercury from the body, and the role of the parotid glands in the process. Monica speaks to the five layers of illness that everyone, including animals, goes through in getting sick. I love talking with Monica because her story is a great reminder that it doesn’t matter what your labs are; it matters how you feel. Medical gaslighting is a real issue, and it’s important to always advocate for your health!
