Resource: Holistic Dentistry Durango.com has BOTH Perspectives About Flouride, FYI
In searching for information about public opinion about water fluoridation in Colorado, I found a wonderful website of what I believe is called a 'biologic dentist' in Durango, Colorado. I believe that 'our' holistic dentist at Lumigrate.com and in this effort locally, Jim Kennedy, knows him personally, but I want to verify that (so check back for a Comment from Dr Kennedy, below). I highly recommend you travel to Dr Rothchild's website and click on the flouride tab on the left side of the landing page; you will be given the option of seeing the 'conventional' information and the 'progressive' information he presents equally and is, therefore, leaving it up to YOU, the consumer to decide for yourself, without 'bias'. You know us at Lumigrate.com, it's all about YOU! See our landing page "You" model if you're not aware or need a reminder about our core belief in education and health care provision).
And to get you encouraged further to go to see what he has to day, here's an excerpt of what his landing page has to offer
Medical research has proven that infections in your mouth can cause medical problems associated with other parts of your body including the heart, lungs, and brain. Our general dental practice is centered on this holistic philosophy: what happens in your mouth affects the rest of your body. As a result, while treating your oral health, we keep your total body in mind. We see patients of all ages, and practice all facets of dentistry including mercury-free fillings, metal-free crowns, extractions, and head and neck pain (TMJ).
Mardy's note: I am happy to report mid-summer 2012 that this was another step toward what has resulted in the group of four of us locally which named our group "SWIG: Safe Water is Great", we have prepared a logo, mission statement and story of the group, and we have set out navigating our way to educate people 'out there' -- locally and beyond. The three medical providers in SWIG Grand Junction, Colorado created education on Lumigrate, and then I reached out to include two medical/science experts from Lumigrate who live "beyond Colorado" too (North Carolina and Dallas, Texas).
Dr McCloskey then took the key concepts from ALL our educational pieces here at Lumigrate, after we had thoroughly discussed things over our FUN and challenging dinner conversations, and prepared a 'organization/business-level statement letter' to be used as needed in the future. I volunteered to work that into a multi-purpose "statement and story" about SWIG to post here at Lumigrate for all who come to find it.
Therefore, please follow this link to that 'key document' from our group efforts:
...(and I am putting a similar note in each topic we have at Lumigrate about this fluoride and water safety issue -- we have a growing number of topics, please look around if you're wanting to learn more details about fluoride and the history, topically/in toothpaste, or how we went about each step!) ~~ Mardy

For those interested in "groovy" local education and networking for those uniquely talented LumiGRATE experts located in my own back yard, "LumiGRATE Groove of the Grand Valley" is a Facebook page to join. (Many who have joined are beyond our area but like to see the Groovy information! We not only have FUN, we are learning about other providers we can be referring patients to and 'wearing a groove' to each other's doors -- or websites/home offices!) By covering some of the things we do, including case examples, it reinforces the concepts at Lumigrate.com as well as making YOU feel that you're part of a community. Which you ARE at Lumigrate!
