Dr. Aaron Nicholas DDS, practicing dentist, lead coach with the Dental Success Institute and founder of Monday Morning Dentistry, a company which provides education and training to dentists in variety of disciplines joins eHealth Radio and the Dental Health & Health News Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Aaron Nicholas discuss the following:

  • As the baby boomer generation ages, what health issues are/will they experience that will affect their ability to maintain their oral health?
  • Do adults still need to worry about getting cavities?
  • What about gum disease?  Is it a significant problem?  How can it be avoided?
  • I know that kids get fluoride treatments but, recently my dentist has been recommending them for me too.  Is this really necessary?
  • How often do I really need to brush and floss to maintain my teeth?
  • I’ve never really gotten into the flossing habit.  What if I just brush with an electric toothbrush, is that good enough?
  • I’ve never had a cavity, do I still need to floss?
  • Does my oral health affect the rest of my body?

 

Aaron Nicholas is a practicing dentist in Burtonsville, Maryland, but above all else he is a caring educator.  As such, he strives to educate his patients about the best way to protect and maintain their oral health.  He also frequently talks with them about how their oral health is impacting the health of the rest of their body.

If you ever visit Nicholas Dental Care, he and his team will roll out the red carpet for you and provide a dental care experience that is second to none.

Monday Morning Dentistry is Dr. Nicholas’ labor of love.  Here he has authored numerous programs and videos to teach dentists not only “what” to do but also “how” to do it in an efficient, predictable and painless manner. It is his attempt to give back to those that have helped him along the way.

Starting in 2014 Dr. Nicholas became a coach with the Dental Success Institute.  Here he coaches numerous dentists to business as well as clinical success. Both he and his clients feel that the two should go hand in hand.

Most recently, Dr. Nicholas has opened the Dental Assistant School of Maryland.  Here, he and his team are trying to give aspiring dental assistants the very best didactic and practical education to succeed at their chosen profession.

Angela Emmerton, Clinical Nutritionist and Founder of Nutritional Matters, which helps people solve their health problems through practical nutritional solutions, so they can feel the best they can be joins eHealth Radio and the Health News & Nutrition Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Angela Emmerton discuss the following:

  • There’s so many diets today and it’s confusing knowing what to eat – so how do we eat well for good health?
  • So how do we get back to basics and eat ‘real wholefood'?
  • In your expert opinion what is the key ingredient which keeps people on track and eating well for life?
  • What if you’re on a low-budget – can you still eat well?
  • What are the foods we need to avoid for our health sake?
  • Finally, how do you encourage your patients to eat well for life?

 

As an ambassador for ‘That Sugar Film’, Angela believes – and the science shows – that good health is the product of good nutrition.

Angela has spent over 10 years studying all things nutrition, including the eastern philosophy of food as medicine and combined this with studies in social sciences and counselling.

Her practice is under-pinned by the latest evidence-based nutritional medicine, following scientific research on nutrition, nutrients and positive lifestyle practices. However, having spent over 20 years in the corporate working world she understands the effect modern day life has on a person’s health. Her approach is based on ‘keeping it real’ and her recommendations are informed by reality and practical for everyday busy people.

Angela work’s in private practice at McMahon’s Point and in Sydney’s CBD and helps people solve their health problems and transform their lives, turning their health around, from symptoms including; excess weight, hormonal imbalances, fatigue, sleep, anxiety, depression, poor digestion (IBS), food intolerances, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, thyroid dysfunction, etc.

Angela continues to be called upon to provide her expertise in this field of nutritional medicine.  During 2016 she was selected as the nutritionist for Todd Sampson to undertake a nutritional dietary assessment, as part of Todd’s preparation for the six part TV series ‘Bodyhack’.  

Angela is also an advisory team member for ‘SugarByhalf’, a not-for-profit organisation who aim to reduce Australia’s sugar consumption and help combat childhood obesity and chronic disease.

As a trusted advisor, Angela speaks to variety of audiences, empowering them to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing through workshops, corporate talks, presentations and in-service education to complimentary healthcare practitioners.

In addition, Angela facilitates movie screenings of ‘That Sugar Film’ and discussions, for business groups, workplaces and communities, providing educational tools and techniques for people to make informed choices to benefit their own health.

No two DNAs are the same, making your nutritional requirements unique.

Angela’s mission is to transform peoples lives by offering practical nutritional solutions, tailored to each unique ‘individuals’ need, so they go on to lead productive and balanced healthy lives.

Getting Help With Your Issues Has Never Been This Easy!

MBosman.png

 

Dr. Michiel Bosman MD & PhD the Founder of Open Forest, a self-help online protocol designed to help users with their mental health issues joins eHealth Radio the Health News & Mental Health Channels.

 

Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Dr. Michiel Bosman discuss the following:

  • Can you tell us the story behind Open Forest and why you created it?  What is your background?
  • What results are you finding with Open Forest and from the people you talk to that are using it?
  • Is there a specific audience or problem that Open Forest helps the most?
  • How is Open Forest changing the way we manage our mental health care?  In other words, does having the opportunity to have "on demand" help make a significant difference for users and why?
  • Does Open Forest work in concert with your mental health or medical professional or is it a stand alone product so that users don't need to rely on your traditional medical/mental health professional as much and/or in times of crisis or is Open Forest more of an "as you go" health tool and why?

As a psychiatrist, I am always on the lookout for truly epic content about mental health issues to share with my patients. This collection of evidence-based, useful and relevant articles has lead to the Open Forest initiative. My MD/PhD crew and I add new content daily, with the help of an ever-growing group of contributors from all over the world!

We not only offer unique, high-quality blog posts, but also mental health self-tests and our acclaimed self-help modules.

Whether you use these self-help modules on your own, or in a “blended therapy” setting (which basically means you combine self-help modules and regular counseling sessions), we are pretty sure you will find the website useful.
