What if our teeth are a reflection of who we are? What if dental problems such as toothache, decay, and malpositioning illustrate the deep functioning of our true self? What if, by harmonizing our mouths, we could allay many of our physical and mental ills?
After years of dental practice, Michel Montaud made a breakthrough that would completely change his life and work. Without being fully conscious of what he was doing, he engaged in a dental therapy that would prove to be remarkably effective, going beyond the simple framework of mouth and teeth and extend to the human being as a whole. This guided self-therapy, which he refers to as Dentosophy, is a true alternative to the drastic measures of extraction, surgery, and orthodontics. From personal experience, the author states that this approach can even remedy ailments such as chronic rhinitis and otitis, eczema, allergies, asthma, back problems, and sleep disorders.
Montaud describes his personal journey of discovery, initially developed to help his suffering son. Now, after decades of experience and numerous eloquent clinical results, he demonstrates that this human-based approach to our mouth and teeth can stimulate—at any age—the extraordinary healing potential of our bodies.
With case studies and supporting photographic records, he shows that Dentosophy improves the general health of patients, both physically and mentally. This illustrated and accessible book offers an exciting new perspective on our teeth and their innate wisdom.
