“All you need is good health,” a wise man once said. And it is true. We consider health, especially later in the course of our lives, to be one of our most important assets. In fact, without health, every other aspect of our life becomes difficult, unenjoyable, and often downright impossible. We think a person is lucky because he or she stays in good health. They likely work out, do not smoke, and do not do any of the other myriad activities considered to be harmful. Luck has very little to do with good health.
What if I told you that good health is in fact everyone’s birthright? What if I told you that it is possible, if you have not managed to destroy your body past the point of no return, to enjoy a much more fulfilling way of life, and that almost everyone is capable of drastically improving their quality of life now?
It is no longer a surprise that our medical community, though capable of absolute miracles, has turned in large part toward the maintenance of chronic diseases, rather than figuring out strategies for their prevention.
One’s quality of life is based on a trinity of principles that must be developed in balance. If one of the principles is missing, no stable quality of life can be maintained for any reasonable length of time. The three supporting principles are: Proper Nutrition, Proper Exercise, and Proper Mental and Spiritual Condition.
In the scope of this article, we will not be covering the spiritual aspect, for that is determined by the calling of one’s heart, and only superficial guidance can be offered in that respect. Although Dr. Maxim Skormin has been on his spiritual path for the past 12 years and has led a Christian study club or two, he is still very cautious in offering spiritual guidance.
Let us talk about the first two principles. The first is Proper Nutrition. We are what we eat–quite literally, in fact. In a matter of a few months, every molecule and atom in our bodies is completely replaced with something that came from outside. The need for food and water consumption is second only to our need for air. Nutrition is not only what we drink and eat, however. The “how” plays an equally important role. One would agree that even the best quality foods delivered via a food tube in a hospital setting would hardly compare to a great steak eaten in the company of your loved ones at a family dinner.
The second aspect is the Proper Exercise. Fortunately, there is a lot of information available on this topic. In addition, Now Dental is affiliated with a few service providers in the Houston area that can offer custom exercise programs designed to fit your needs and your budget. Please ask us at any time during your appointment in regards to this matter.
What does dentistry have to do with your overall health? A vast majority of acquired diseases enter our bodies through the oral cavity. The condition of one’s oral cavity is one of the best early indicators of a great number of diseases in the human body, either via direct indicators or by exhibiting behavioral patterns that should be known to an experienced dentist. In addition, dentistry is the only branch of medicine currently able to offer a complete rehabilitation, in most cases, with almost complete restoration of function and cosmetic appearance.
Therefore, your dentist should be on the front lines of early diagnosis and treatment of multitude of human diseases. He or she should also be able to refer a patient to an appropriate healthcare provider to continue his or her treatment, as well as offer sound advice on how to avoid many future problems.
At our office, we would like to offer you a holistic approach to your dental health, as well as your health in general. It is our goal to significantly improve your quality of life, improve the way you feel and the way you and others perceive you. How would you like to be able to fully enjoy your life again?

Please ask us at your next visit. But remember, we can only show you the way. It is up to you to walk it.
