“Any chronic health issue you can come up with is usually connected to something in your mouth.” - Dr. Dominik Nischwitz aka Dr. Dome, Specialist for Biological Dentistry

Right now, we are witnessing an epidemic of chronic diseases.

From thyroid disorders, chronic pains, various autoimmune diseases, neurological conditions... You name it.

The number of cases of these chronic diseases has increased dramatically over the last few decades.

And what do they all have in common? They can always be linked to something in your mouth.

My guest today is Dr. Dominik Nischwitz, the world’s leading biological dentist, and author of It's All in Your Mouth: Biological Dentistry and the Surprising Impact of Oral Health on Whole Body Wellness. 

He is considered a pioneer in the field and his goal is to establish biological dentistry as the new standard of health optimization. 

Today he will reveal the truth about root canals, wisdom teeth extractions, toxic dental materials, and other common dental practices, and explain what biological dentistry is and how it can be used to heal the mouth and the whole body.

Tune in!

“In this world of chronic health issues, it is really important to optimize your health, because poor oral health equals poor overall health.” - Dr. Dominik Nischwitz aka Dr. Dome, Specialist for Biological Dentistry

“Any chronic health issue you can come up with is usually connected to something in your mouth.” - Dr. Dominik Nischwitz aka Dr. Dome, Specialist for Biological Dentistry

“The mouth is the entrance to your whole body.” - Dr. Dominik Nischwitz on the importance of oral health 

“Any disease or chronic fatigue you can come up with will always have a link to your mouth. The World Health Organization says that 70% of all chronic diseases start in the mouth, but what they are looking into is only oral diseases like tooth decay, which is the number one chronic disease with 90% incidence, and gum diseases like periodontitis or gingivitis. So it is really important to optimize your oral health because poor oral health equals poor overall health.” - Dr. Dominik Nischwitz, Biological Dentist and Naturopath
“A root canal will always distract your immune system because it is a dead organ. In nature, you're not supposed to have any dead tissue in your body. And in every medical department, they will remove anything dead in your body; the only department that allows it is dentistry.” Dr. Dominik Nischwitz

Welcome to another episode of The Longevity and Lifestyle Podcast. I'm your host Claudia von Boeselager. Here to uncover the groundbreaking strategies, tools, and practices from the world's pioneering experts to help you live at your best and reach your highest potential. If you want to get top tips, insights, and strategies for optimizing your life, health, and longevity, grab my weekly newsletter by going to LLinsider.com. My guest today is Dr. Dominik Nischwitz, aka Dr. Dome is the world's leading biological dentist and is considered a pioneer in the field of biological and holistic dentistry. Dr. Dome is an international speaker and author of It's All in your Mouth with the goal of establishing biological dentistry as the new standard for health optimization protocols for all health practitioners and dentists alike, using the term health starts in your mouth. Dr. Dome trains traditional dentists and proper biological dentistry practices and believes that optimal health starts in the mouth. So we're going to start there. Welcome to the Longevity Lifestyle Podcast. Dr. Dome, it's such a pleasure to have you on today.

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 1:21  
Yeah, thank you so much for having me. It's my pleasure.

Claudia von Boeselager 1:25  
Yeah. And I really want excited to have you on because we haven't had any guests that are specialized in your area. And it's such an important area. And as you say, health starts in your mouth. So can you explain what you mean by that?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 1:38  
Yeah, basically, what it says, like, the mouth is the entrance to your whole body. Yeah, most people talk about gut health. But it actually starts in the mouth, like, this is the tube that starts from here and ends over there. So whatever happens, there will be like a mirror for your overall health. It's kind of like, yeah, it's like the entrance to your whole body. So that's why it's so important. As you said, you never had anyone talking about this in your podcast. I've been doing this for quite some years. And I always feel that the mouse is the most neglected area anyways, whereas it's directly connected to your brain, and it's super important.

Claudia von Boeselager 2:16  
And also, it has its own microbiome, right? So people think of the gut microbiome, and you know, I also plan to ask me, you know, when to optimize my microbiome, and then they forget about the mouth as well. So I'm excited to dig in. What are some of the common most common diseases that are caused by poor oral health? I wouldn't always

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 2:36  
say cause but it's big time-correlated, actually. Because Cause, in medical terms, is always a bit complicated. Let's say we are living in an epidemic of chronic disease. And for the last 25 years, is like increasing big time. So whatever symptom or name for the symptom you will come up with, from, let's say, autoimmune issues like multiple sclerosis, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, any thyroid issue, chronic joint pain, chronic joint issues, all these different things up until neurological issues like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, or irritable bowel syndrome. So any chronic health issue that you can come up with is usually connected to some sort of things in your mouth because it's a part of your body and not the outside body, even though as a joke, conventional dentists, you usually, yeah, you usually just repair Yeah, smile and bites. So any disease or chronic fatigue, whatever you come up with, I will always have a link to your mouth. And this is the important bit the World Health Organisation says 70% of all chronic diseases start in the mouth. But what they are looking into is only oral diseases like tooth decay, which is the number one chronic disease with 90% incidence, and gum disease, like periodontitis, Gingivitis; they're not looking into all the repair, but things were doing so they don't even have that on the radar. So in this world of chronic health issues, it is really important to optimize your health because poor oral health equals poor overall health.

Claudia von Boeselager 4:11  
That's the start. So can you expand a bit on that correlation? So for people trying to get their head around, like hang on a second, you know, how do you know leaky gut and the thing or even you were mentioning neurodegenerative diseases, you know, how is that linked with oral health?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 4:28  
Yeah, actually, if you understand the whole anatomy of the body, it's quite simple. You have to see T little organs, kind of like your liver or you got whatever it has a limited supply of blood supply and the nervous system, an autonomic nervous system, and it's kind of like the extension of your brain like your eyes. They are directly connected through a cranial nerve. In this case, it's called the trigeminal nerve. So whatever you do, like repair-wise out at UTS or on your T, is in your nervous system. So, for example, you put in metals or root canals, or any sort of these health killers that I'm always talking about, they will interfere with your whole immune system, with your nervous system, and your whole biology, so to speak, because it's a part of it indirectly connected through it. So this is how it's how it's connected. And the third bit is basically the microbiome, which you already touched on; the oral microbiome always comes first. Basically, what you swallow becomes the gut microbiome later on in this pathway. And the oral microbiome changes through different versions of diet changes through dental repairs, like these help killers, I'm always talking about. So you just have to understand the autonomic nervous system, the immune system, the lymph system, and if you understand this, then it's just a part of the whole body. It's like, if you take a hormone or a pill, you know, it will work systemically. So whatever you put into your mouth, like from the repair business, will work systemically against toxins, chronic infections, and stressors. It's the same thing that applies there. It's just not used to being seen like this because most of the people out there believe T in dentistry, that just fighting instruments, they're hard as stone, and they look nice, maybe for aesthetics, but that's it, but it's not 32 organs, they're very crucial. And they're connected through the whole autonomic nervous system and immune system.

Claudia von Boeselager 6:28  
This is really phenomenal because I don't think you're the first person I hear talking about this. So I'm so excited to dig in a bit deeper as well. And I also saw that you mentioned there's a connection between migraines and other chronic conditions that people might associate with oral health. So these are, or would you say they're quite common? If people come with say they have migraines, you would look, what would you typically do?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 6:50  
Most definitely. So usually, obviously, our concept of biologic dentistry is like the melting pot of high-tech dentistry with functional medicine and health optimization. So it's a little bit more advanced. And, obviously, if you already do everything that you teach in your podcast, like everything you can do for longevity, nutrition, lifestyle, all these practices out there, and then you're still not superhuman, then it's at least time to look into these triggers. We're talking about neuro-modular diff chiggers called oral interference. This could be so I'm always asking three questions for the audience. Maybe that's a good one here. So the first question is always, do you have a head amalgam? Or are any metal fillings or implants in your mouth right now? Stand up virtually? The second question is, have you ever had a root canal? Stand up? And the number three is always did they remove your wisdom teeth, which is quite common in the Western world? If any of these questions are answered with a yes, he has a big chance that a huge part of your chronic health issues stems from these so-called oral neuroma modulators triggers, I call them the health killers or health hazards that are lurking in your mouth that you might not even know about, even though they're there 24/7, stressing your body out and putting it into fight and flight system. So if you understand this concept, you understand how for example, migraines, migraines are mostly neurological issues. But there's always a component of toxicity that can be chronic infections and can be immune triggers like cytokines. So imagine you have everything in check, you already do it, whatever you say, still migraines. So maybe you have an ongoing chronic inflammation in your job that doesn't hurt, it's chronic. And it triggers your nervous system, the trigeminal nerve, to produce trigeminal neuralgia, which is a huge migraine issue. So most of the time, anything related to migraines is connected to some sort of cranial nerve. And what is the professional works mostly at the cranial nerve, that's the dentist. So it could be the heavy metal, it could be a Mercury problem, could be a cytokine issue like immune triggers, or other toxicity that are intoxicating you or stressing you on a subclinical level 24/7 for 10 years, 20 years, 30 years, and you end up having migraines all the time, and you maybe can compensate them with doing some sort of detoxification or lifestyle healthy practices, but it doesn't it's never going away. There's a big, I would say there's a big caveat that maybe you should see a biological dentist to rule out oral interference.

Claudia von Boeselager 9:22  
And so, in terms of defining biological dentistry, it's looking at the root cause. Is it like Functional Medicine, Dentistry? Is that how we would define them? It's

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 9:33  
obviously, we are still in this at this point in time, we still have to have high-end, high-tech dentistry repair because so many people have tooth decay, have had metals in their mouth, have had root canals, and all these things. So we need a biological approach but meat which means we only use biomaterials, no foreign bodies; there will be the first bit, so we need that skill. And it combines with functional medicine. That's correct. Yeah. Which is the nutrition side of things. preparation of the body with the right nutrients, micronutrients, and IV protocols that are designed to systemically help you heal. And number three, I say health optimization, slash biohacking combining it with this to basically optimize your health. That's it. It's beyond goes beyond brushing, it was just brushing and going to the dentist to repair teeth. It's about never going to the dentist again if you have that done at one point like nature has it, right? Do the hardest stone your gums won't bleed. But we're not living in a healthy, normal, natural world. It's more like an unnatural, super-unnatural world. So this is why this is the next next next level of what we do in our clinic there. So yeah, combining it all together to help the patients. That's the goal as many as possible because, you know, chronic issue chronic health issues are insane how big that is. And we all should work together to co-elevate.

Claudia von Boeselager 10:54  
Yeah, such an exciting space. So I want to touch on a few things because you listed the three areas in which you should stand up or raise your hands if you say yes to two of them. So I've had a canal, I've had a root canal, and I've had all four wisdom teeth removed. So tell me what's wrong with these things and what I need to do.

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 11:13  
So I believe you're always looking for optimal health, right? So you don't want to have any chronic inflammation in your body. You know that chronic health issues or chronic inflammation are actually killer number one. So chronic health issue always means you don't feel it. Yeah, it's most likely numbed because your body got lazy and doesn't have a solution. So you just maybe it makes the noise a bit quieter. You adapt to it, you adapt to it, and you don't feel it anymore, but it's super connected to everything in your body. So you have a root canal, do you remember which one it was

Claudia von Boeselager 11:44  
with another name but on top, sort of in the middle on the top

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 11:47  
leg behind the canine, so add to behind the canine in Germany would be number two, five. So English is probably it doesn't even 910 1112 1230 Probably is 13, which is directly connected to your large intestine and lung meridian from a Chinese medicine point of view. Wow. Okay. And whatever you experience, is there any chronic health issue that you have, like, for example, neck problems or eyesight, or any joint issues, maybe your body is just so optimized that you can compensate it. Yeah, it will always distract your immune system because a root canal is a debt organ. In nature, you're not supposed to have any dead tissue in your body. That was never a good idea. And in every medical department, they would take out anything that is in your body; the only department that allows it is dentistry. Why? Because you don't feel it, you can easily buy it on it. But a root canal was once a tooth that was alive, it had his blood supply. It lives supply and an audit and an immune system. If you look at a tooth from electro microscopic perspective, like very tiny, you will see that one root is not just as big a channel that we fill up as the dentists like to make you go pain-free, but it has about 30 to 70,000, tiny dentin tubules that are connected. And if you add the length of all these from just one route, it's about a kilometer in length. I don't know, it's probably point six miles in English, where now, if there's no more immune system, all the microbes that live in your body in your mouth, especially the anaerobic bacteria, just jump in there, it's the perfect case for them. And they just live there, your immune system is too big to go in there. So it can only go around and make a cyst on top of it to basically help your body with these toxins. But these bacteria living in they're producing their metabolites, they eat your oral amino acids, whatever you eat, and then they get out their metabolites which are highly toxic products. They are called Theia ethers, American teens, they are toxic, and you can also become immune allergic to it, which means it's a double whammy, even though you probably don't even feel anything related to it. These things are very, very important. Any tea or any tooth is important for your overall health. So it's never a good idea to have a chronic trigger. And obviously, we need to do something to restore this as natural as possible. But you have to just understand if you had a root canal, you had a huge cavity, you probably had pain, massive pain. That's neurological pain, like heavy migraines, and you need to have the root canal done. But that's on you because you got it ruined in the first place. Or maybe the dentist was it I don't even know. Now it's dead. But now we need to have a solution to replace it. Obviously, a naturally healthy tooth would be the best solution. It's gone. So we need something more. This is where we come in with immediate ceramic implants, which is my specialty to restore it with a biomaterial because the only thing I want to do is bring your body back to where it was when you came out of your mom as close as possible. And I don't want to implant anything that is foreign material. And the usual dentists place a titanium implant, unfortunately yet, still yet, because that's the gold standard, but titanium is a foreign particle which means it again heals with a chronic silent inflammation, chronic cytokine activation, and foreign body reaction, whereas the biomaterial, you will just implant and if your body is able to heal, which is again connected to your nutrition and your lifestyle, that's why that is big with us, let's say a nice solution that is at least stress-free, and you have that area sorted out, and then you see what happens within. So you get that neurological trigger out, and you will see it and be amazed at what's happening. Sometimes it's just, I have patients, they say, I have nothing, it's all good. But you can see, for example, their deep sleep is just not good enough, or they have no REM sleep, or they need just one hour longer sleep. They say I'm totally healthy. And then after so tell me, Oh, ever since I've done root canal gone? Is the cavitation gone? I only need 45 minutes less sleep, which is in my world. Amazing. Yeah, because I see, okay, the body needs less to repair. But also, just to know there are chronic infections chronic, like immune triggers, and the nervous system is something I would never want in my body. So that's why we obviously need a solution. And I'm lucky that that is possible these days that we have these ceramic implants to replace a missing tooth or root canal. And we do that immediately. So that would be the root canal bit, I hope you understand you can also if that's too deep or too much rabbit under percent

Claudia von Boeselager 16:27  
understand exactly because I do think it is a ceramic implant, as well. So originally, they filled it, I think, with ceramic, and they had the natural tooth. This was done years ago, and dentists couldn't believe, over the years when I've lived in different places, that it would still haven't cracked and that it was still okay. And they insisted on putting a crown on it. So I need to look at what they've done since and

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 16:48  
you've probably had a ceramic crown on the top implant is a total restoration of the two. So you we take out all root canals in complete, clean everything, disinfect everything, and so that your body doesn't like if you take out a tooth, you usually end up having a socket. And what happens if you don't do anything is it collapses; that's called alveolar atrophy; just normal; you lose bone, and you lose bone volume, height, and quality in the first three months. That's the usual dental way. And then they think about okay, now we put in an implant, or we lost bone, we have to rebuild bone. So what we do is we take it out, we clean everything using ozone, taking blood from your mains and spin it to make PRP out of it flattened, retract whatever we need. And then if it's clean, obviously, I placed this whole implant which is the new tooth root ceramic in there to stabilize the socket to keep bone height and quality, and you never actually have a real surgery; you just take out a tooth, and you heal an osteon degrade for the next three months. Super simple, pain-free treatment. Just two little people do it nowadays. But that's what we teach.

Claudia von Boeselager 17:59  
Yeah. Okay, really exciting. So I'm going to be looking into exactly what mine is. Let's talk about wisdom teeth because also I know a lot of people have this extracted, and it's just expected you have them pulled. So why should one not have wisdom teeth extracted?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 18:14  
Again, we go back to an ideal world. The thing about Western prices is amazing. You're probably familiar with Weston Price, who did this amazing experience with nutrition and how these folks grow that usually, obviously, in the natural world, we're designed to have 32 teeth which mean all wisdom teeth grow out in space. Unfortunately, in the Western world, because of our lifestyle, starting with the womb, we grow too narrow. So when you then fall 15 years of age, the dentist tells you on a panoramic say oh, your wisdom teeth are impacted; they will never have any space. We need to take them out. Otherwise, you end up having more crowded teeth. So yes, in this case, obviously, we need to take them out because if they're impacted, they're becoming a neurological trigger, too, but the way how it is done, it most likely leads to something chronic again. This is why I always ask the question, Have you had wisdom teeth removed like yourself? I wouldn't plan your panoramic to see this root canal and dry in ceramic implant, and the second bit would be the Western tooth area would be read. And there's a word on it written called Niko or FTO. J, in layman's terms, cavitations you might have heard of it. cavitations. So in dental University, you'd never known about this. It's not accepted yet. We're working on this big time with a lot of research in the background. And basically, what happens if you take out his wisdom teeth, most likely in your teenage years? You're not prepared. The only information you get from your surgeon is we're going to take these things out you need some medication, you have swollen cheeks like this, and you need painkillers that's it. There's no preparation you're in the growing phase, and you probably eat shitty foods because you're not know you don't know what to do in that no Little World; you just eat the regular standard Western diet; what happens your body is not prepared. It's in hibernation mode. So it just works somewhat. It never grows a nice bone it always grows a chronic, let's say, mushy, Fatty, degenerated bone. That's why the term FTO j stands for fatty, degenerative osteo necrotic jawbone. And this is what usually happens, I would say 98% of all cases out there that had their wisdom teeth removed, they end up having chronic silent inflammation in their jawbone, on this area, Wisdom Tooth areas, super, extremely important in the meridian system, connected to adrenal glands, small intestine, and heart meridian. So some people have heart issues, palpitations, something like this, or like, weird thing, symptoms, a lot of people have just chronic fatigue, they don't even know where this is coming from. And obviously, no dentist will look at it because they don't even know about that topic. And at least 50 presented thyroid or gut health issues because it's directly connected to the small intestine, which is a big part around here for SIBO. And you might have heard SIBO is a big one. So small intestinal bowel overgrowth, then obviously, all the gut problems come with hell come with skin issues, a lot of inflammation. Even women in there, like all the years have, like still kind of pimples and Zima. And they already obviously do everything like creams from outside, they eat the right diet, but still doesn't go away, then you know, okay, maybe there is a trigger in my Western tooth area. So that's why I'm always thinking Have you had your wisdom teeth removed, because cavitation is a real thing, even though it's not yet existing. But for all the medical doctors out there, if you're interested, these cavitations have special cytokines or chemokines, which are called M grantees. Maybe it's a bit of a rabbit over there just mention grantees or CCL five; if you just Google Scholar, this may also be interesting for you to make a Google Scholar search, which is the PubMed for Google, and just type in grantees or era ra NTS or CCL five, plus multiple sclerosis, for example, and you will find instantly 3000 page 3000 research papers that look for this. The problem here is medical world looks for entities, but they don't know about cavitations. So we again have this thing that dentists and the mouse is kind of like, not your body. So biology dentistry integrates the mouth and your body and makes it the centerpiece because it is like the extension of your brain is basically working on a brain nerve. So again, chronic inflammation.

Claudia von Boeselager 22:36  
This is really, really fascinating. Yeah, and I mean, there are so many people that say I have chronic fatigue, I don't know what it is. And obviously, the body is complex, and being right with some of the thinking, maybe it's due to hormones, stress levels, etc. But I think many people don't look to the mouth and don't have dentists that are aware of this either.

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 22:53  
Yeah, but if you just touch on hormones, for example, yeah, most functional medicine practitioners will look into you your hormones and see maybe see, oh, wow, you have a lot of you have high cortisol or a high adrenaline, noradrenaline, you have low serotonin, whatever. So and oftentimes, they prescribe some, maybe they also have obviously had the wrong thyroid hormones because if you have any sort of stress, your thyroid takes part of it and your sex hormones too. And they may be prescribed any natural thyroid things or any bioidentical hormones. But you have to go one step further. And look, is there anything chronically inflamed in your body? Because what does it do? It always activates the immune and nervous systems and activates your hypothalamus. So it's called the stress axis activates your hypothalamus pituitary adrenal gland axis to produce cortisol, the stress hormone. In the beginning, it's mainly just adrenaline and noradrenaline, but if it's a long-term chronic health issue, you will produce high levels of cortisol. If you produce cortisol all day long, it's kind of like the body's reparation mechanism. But what it does over time is it depletes the precursors for your thyroid, sexual hormones. And then this is called something called pregnenolone. Steel. It's totally normal in, let's say, functional medicine, we look at this, but most of them don't look at the oral cavity. That's what I say. So they try everything still not good even though they already have to perfect regimen. Then it's again time to look for metals, root canals, and cavitations non-biological dentists because they could be, again, this word neuro, the neuro modulator trigger that is holding you back from the inside because you can hack everything you know biohacking is about hacking your environment. Obviously, you protect yourself against Wi-Fi against all these things. But there's one part that you can buy Oh, heck, this is the stuff that you have in your mouth, done by a dentist; that's the unnatural bit in most unnatural bidding your body, and your body has to compensate for it. So if you take it out, your body gets in parasympathetic mode, which means out of fight and flight and into healing. That's why it is so critical. This is why if you understand biochemistry, hormones, and the whole health matrix, you could put this really in the centerpiece and teach any health coach out there. I don't even care if you if you're a trainer or physiotherapist, or osteopath. I believe everyone who deals with a human being who wants to help optimize needs to be able to learn how to read a panoramic X-ray and look for metals, root canals, and cavitations or ask these questions. Because sometimes you end up having patients, who went to 29 doctors for 15 years, they're still super sick, nobody helped them, then they come and see us. And then, finally, they can start the journey. So it's really that critical.

I'm excited to jump into a few different topics from the things that you've mentioned there. But just to get to the bottom of the wisdom teeth and cavitations, as you call them. How does one solve that, especially if people maybe have had their wisdom teeth, let's say, pulled, and they were relating to adrenal fatigue or some of the other issues that you've mentioned? Yeah, what should they do? What are the action items here?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 26:01  
The first action item you can do is always optimize your health and do everything already, like changing your nutrition life and doing everything to de-stress your body. Now, because then we know the only leftover stressor is in your mouth. But for cavitations or root canals, you obviously need a skilled surgeon at one point that takes it out and is a very, very minimally invasive therapy. If you know the skills, is she trained by me, then you know that our goal is not to be an old school surgeon meaning like huge cut rough style, like we did our western teeth, the opposite. We do minimally invasive surgeries, we kind of barely touch you, and maybe just remove what's dead or wrong and replace it. But in order to do so, all my patients have an onboarding online course where they learn how to optimize their health and nutrition, how to take the right micronutrients and all the different things that you can already start right away. Yeah, so basically, just start your health optimization journey, and then find someone skilled to remove your metal safely, know how to remove root canals safely, and place ceramic implants. And this cavitation can we obviously have that combined in the whole clinic setup, where we do it all in one; that's why the patients fly in from all over the world. Because they know, okay, this guy is or this clinic is taking care of the whole bit in just one health optimization week, lying in we take out all the metal safely all root canals, they ceramic eminence, do these cavitations prepare your body for the six weeks before during the time you hear we use hyperbaric oxygen therapy, we use IVs we use laser, new veins, whatever you can come up with when it comes to health optimization or cutting edge stuff. It's all they're it's a full-on thing. And then you leave healthier with a nice mouth. And you just let it heal for the next three to four months. And then you come back if you need groundwork, like the final teeth, and that's it, I never want to see you again as a dental patient. Otherwise, I didn't do a good job. Because you have to understand you should never get dental repair in the first place. You should never have tooth decay anymore. That's all on you. And it's all again the lifestyle factor. So this is how we go about it. But unfortunately, there are not too many clinics yet that have the whole basically no one actually. But we're teaching it so

Claudia von Boeselager 28:19  
this is definitely a model to roll out your, you know, singing to me as a biohacker fellow via, you know, having hyperbaric oxygen therapy, dentistry. Ventry, but I love it. Let's talk about the metals in a little bit more detail for my audience and people who are unfamiliar. And I recently had a client who is optimizing everything, and she was still experiencing chronic fatigue. And then we got to the bottom that she actually had mercury fillings and that these would have to be removed. So what do people listening who might have metal in their mouth? Why? What's going on there? Can you explain the science behind it and the conditions?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 28:56  
Yes. So metal is obviously something that dentists use still use nowadays to repair teeth because it's just a material that you can work with. You touched on Mercury. So if you have any sort of these silver, black fillings, they're called amalgam fillings with an MSDN, which contain 50% of mercury. So but there are different metals; you can also have nice white teeth, and underneath there's a metal fused crown. That means the lowest metal you can also have replaced root canals with implants, which are usually titanium. So metals come in various different shapes and forms. And there are three health challenges that are always connected to metals. Number one is it could be a very strong toxin. Like mercury, Mercury is the most toxic nonradioactive element known to men, and the main source of mercury toxicity is still the amalgam filling in your body. So this needs to be gone safely, so toxicity, but also there's obviously other things copper, tin, and lead. What is his name, Nick? Even Nicolas, sometimes you find a nickel; a lot of people are allergic to nickel and various different materials, and none of this material is supposed to be in your body. It's all stuff that you can use for a car, but it's not for your body, you're not Terminator, so you're not a machine. And second one, toxicity, you're number one second; there's no particular order. The second would be the immune system, your body can become allergic to any foreign material. Why? Because the immune system is designed to repel invaders. It's kind of like your own army. And if you have a foreign particle, it can be attacked all day long. Number one, almost all people know about nickel. Nickel is number one, Elgin, but you don't know that Nicholas, oftentimes in the wires that we use to brace is oftentimes even in a titanium implant like grade six titanium Emmaline has nickel in it. So you install nickel into your system like in your bone, it's like inside your body in the cell, it's really bad. So immune system, you can become allergic. And if you're allergic, that means your immune system is in fight mode all day long, causing havoc. And the problem with the immune system is it's not dose-dependent anymore. So toxins, in the first place, are dose-dependent; your body can deal with them and detox them all day long. But the immune system, you can only be allergic to just a little bit of fume from it. So really bad, and the combination is super bad. And number three is the one that you cannot let's say, discuss away these days, we have a world that is loaded with EMF, electromagnetic field, Wi-Fi, 3g, 4g, 5g, probably six g radar, all these different things. So our environment is loaded. So if you have any metal in your body or on your body, it is going to be a human antenna, a human antenna. Why, again, important your body is like a battery, we have that current in ourselves, which is really tightly regulated; your whole nervous system works like a battery. So now you place any sort of metal in that system. And this will aggravate and make it again interference. So there are studies showing, for example, if you have a phone call with your cell phone, and you have a Mercury filling, the electromagnetic waves will lead to more fumes coming out of that Mercury filling in toxic in your brain, even more in your nervous system new more. Or if you have a titanium implant, it will actually heat up. So it will send very sensible, sometimes amplifying the electromagnetic field 100 to 700 fold. There are even people out there that study it not, so there's empirical data showing that people can who think about psychosis can listen to radio stations when they dial in directly because they have frequency and have different antennas. It's good if you feel that it's a radio station; it's fine because you can listen to it. But imagine you just now hear noises and voices. You can also become psychotic from this. It's called electro-hypersensitivity. So it's really a bad, a good thing, and a bad thing to have. It's really bad that no one knows about it. And it's mostly woo-woo. If you go to a regular doctor to tell you this guy is psychosomatic, go take some antidepressants, but it might be just lurking in your mouth again. So metals and toxins that you need to deliver needs to deal with, and your whole body depletes itself to the thigh on all these crucial things. Second, the immune system triggers everyday rashes, whatever. You know, when you understand how your immune system works, it's a big stressor. It costs energy, any chronic inflammation because 30% of your energy and number three human antennae. So I think I don't want to have that in my body. So how can I do this for my patients? The next thing is you need to have someone because I'm not here to scale your fearmonger. It's the opposite I give you information out there to help you optimize you don't jump now to the next step is the age drill out all my amalgam? That would be the worst idea you can do, you need to find someone who is a skilled practitioner who knows how to remove mercury fillings or any metal safely. And in the US, there's a group called it. So then this can certify through them to become smart Senate smart like intelligent, smart certified, that means they're certified to remove amalgam safely SMART stands for safe mercury amalgam removal technique. So this is a good way to start but don't go too irregular, then disable just drill it out and make it even worse. Because if you just drill that out, obviously, we have way more gas out of the fumes and toxins.

Claudia von Boeselager 34:22  
So that's the tricky or the challenge if you were so some people might be like, I'll just go to my dentist and on for years. What is the danger, it's the fumes that you would be inhaling, and then it's a toxicity that says in your body.

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 34:35  
It's the same thing. So you have mercury fillings in your mouth, and they're usually dentists that's what we taught in university is, oh, that Malga amalgam is a super good filling. It lasts forever. It's almost cheap and free and super easy to work with. Maybe correct, but every single day through grinding, chewing, drinking acidic foods, brushing dental hygienist, you guys out a little bit of that mercury vapor, about two to three microns, which is 1000s of milligrams; it's really tiny. And it's you don't see it, it's odorless, you don't smell it, and it just flows out. And the problem with this mercury is, and it's called a sort of fumes called HCl, zero of zero, I don't know how you call it an English to chemical version, and this goes through all the cells, it goes there, there is no protection, and it gets, it gets stored mainly in fatty tissue or connective tissue, and then carried out and then catalase is made he tubeless out of it. So the half-life now becomes 16 to 32 years old. And if it's in your brain, so you don't really get it out. So you are chronically intoxicated on a daily basis. And if you want to take it out, obviously, with the drilling, you probably have 1,000x these fumes; that's what you do not want to do. If you want to take it out, what we do is we take we have a sevenfold measurement system, even we including even IVs during it and after it so that your body really doesn't take anything, so that we can take it out without causing further damage. That's the goal. That's really important. And obviously, realizing this now because I've worked with 1000s of patients for the last 15 years. What dentists almost always forget is the patient in itself. So this is why we make it into a whole week means you come once you stay, and you optimize everything; it's kind of like a spa treatment, more like it. Yeah, it's not a regular dental, Thing, Thing. What's more, it's all about optimizing. And then you only have one trip. But usually, it's like, Okay, you go to Vegas filling out then this routine as you go to the dentist 15 times, maybe even 20 over two years. And it costs so much time and money for the patient. But this is the bit that the dentist always overlooks there's also time evolve time issues. So if you can do it, you can set time apart to just do it all on one, get it over with optimized further; that's the way to go. Because later on, if that's all clean if the root source of toxicity and whatever is out of your system, we will also help you optimize any pathway and then later on even help your body detox with, like, let's say, chelation in anything which you don't want to do if you still have that in your mouth. Because the sauce needs to come out first. Otherwise would be like you don't shower yourself if you still have your clothes on makes no sense. So don't do any calculations; you still have the root source anybody can actually cause bad havoc in the system.

Claudia von Boeselager 37:24  
That's really helpful for me to know as well. Just Well, I love the fact that there's a solution, and that's it as well. But you didn't mention gold, and I know some people have gold in their mouths. What is the view on gold?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 37:36  
No, no, no, no metal at all. Not even titanium, for example, is not as allergic. It's still a lot of studies showing that titanium oxide particles which are very high immune triggers you will find in local lymph nodes, and then they also cause immune issues. So and gold is actually quite high indeed. I think it's its gold is on nickel number one, then I think Mercury organic and inorganic then is already gold. So it's really a high allergic trigger. Even though it's a precious metal, Yes, maybe for selling for a salary or whatever, but not in your mouth, not in your body. It's not it's just not there to be there. It's like gets dissolved every single day also into your saliva, and then it's like a current in your body. And obviously, it's a foreign party. But again, immune system toxicity Same applies to go antenna to

Claudia von Boeselager 38:26  
what about veneers? And then I'd love to touch on also retainers in general, and also, Invisalign is very popular I mean, here in London, many people are running around, and obviously it's plastic in the mouth each day. So can you touch on those different areas as well?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 38:42  
Yes, of course. So first of all, veneers are a very highly skilled dental skill, a high-level skill. And when the problem with veneers is, I'm a big fan of videos if you need them because real veneers done by an aesthetic specialist are very thin like point three 2.7 millimeters, like really, really thin. And if you have a good oral designer like a lab guy you're working with, is this all planned in advance so we will plan your whole smile before and then later on we see, okay, we maybe have to shave a tiny bit off, but usually, they are additional that means you don't hurt anything you just glue it a glue is bad but you adhesives we work on top of your teeth. But in a world of social media and things, people are flying out all over the world to get nice teeth and veneers. They're not veneers most of the time; they're, most of the time, really shaving down your whole enamel filling your tooth, and you get the crown word, partial crown or whatever, that's bad. This is destroying your tooth. So it's really you need skilled people. It's not a thing where you should save money on. And I don't even say that everybody who charges a lot is a well skilled dentist when it comes to these things. It's like with every profession, but this is a very minimal invasive treat. Amen. So if you feel that people are shaving down your teeth, like really drill it down, it's not a veneer. It's the crown. And you have to see this bit is called enamel. That's the hardest part of your tooth. It is protection. It is hard as granite. And as soon as you shave his away, there's dentin below, dentin is super soft and sensitive. You basically take the structure away from your tooth. And not a good idea. The best thing is always having healthy teeth, but I get the vanity. So veneers, if they're done properly, yes, but really, really dig deep into what they're doing. And this is hard, obviously, for a patient to find out. That's always the problem. But it's the same with every profession. So how do you know if this construction worker makes it builds your good house? Yeah, same. So but the pearly whites in Hollywood most likely have not really been years. And if there have been years, that's not the aesthetic we go for we go for natural aesthetic, which you don't see that you have it but one like really nice to you. That will be veneers. The second question was, I think, yeah, retainers most of the time metal take it out. Yeah, it's a metal wire. And also, a bit that I've not touched on is that the teeth and this joint called the temporomandibular joint are strongly connected to your whole body alignment and posture. Because postural posology and all these things move, you know, your teeth move. And they are sutures that you are born with, like in the middle of your brain. And and you had like when your whole let's say, was the English were stable move, they had to move, and they had a couple of them in your teeth. So if, for example, one of mine is this on the lower part in the mid, Where do you have your retainer right around this one? So you blocked that movement. So your lymphatic isn't as good. And also, again, metal toxicity. Maybe toxicity is not too bad in this case, but the immune system is. And also, again, a huge wire in the middle of your central nervous system. Yeah, good, perfect antenna; take it out, take a nighttime spin to remove it, or maybe some dentists will even give you a fixed retainer. I personally don't want to have anything fixed. Just like taking the splint like Invisalign, after treatment, like the retainer, plastic retainer, put it in and out. Ideally, actually, just to say that, on top of, using or needing a retainer is actually documented. Yeah, treatment. Like it's that the treatment didn't work. It doesn't it means it does work. Because if your teeth posture of your teeth works, the bite is correct. The bite itself is the retainer. So if you need a retainer to keep that fixed because of the again, crowd again, your orthodontic treatment didn't really work. It's just the documentation of the failure, so to speak. It's obviously exaggerated, but it is that way.

Claudia von Boeselager 42:43  
I'm laughing because I do have I didn't even I'd had it so long. I forgot about it. I have the metal wire in my mouth. But

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 42:52  
I'm in London. Yeah. Closes only in our 30s.

Claudia von Boeselager 42:55  
Exactly. I'm in Germany every now and then. So I'll swing by

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 42:59  
coming to the health optimization Summit, which is going to speak?

Claudia von Boeselager 43:04  
That's pretty brilliant. Okay, very exciting. So yeah, it's funny. I'm just laughing because I was like, okay, yep, tick the box, tick the box. Exactly. So I need to optimize a few things for sure. as well. The thing is with the plastic of the retainer, and is that concern from microplastics? Entering the body, if you have them in? Or what do you think?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 43:27  
I would always say, okay, obviously, best would be not, but I get the vanity, and let's say I'm not, I'm not the person who wants to fear you. Because there are so many different, let's say, bad things in this world. It's about 400 toxins that we have to go through every day. So I just thought, okay, how can I compensate for this? Is it worth it? Is it fine? So I would say that's probably 100-fold less risk than the metal retainer. And these plastics that they use, they usually there's no more monomers, no more soft things of the template is super hard, and they mill it out so that's a very stable issue. Obviously, you probably embrace it, it's a bit abrasive. But you will also drink your cup from Starbucks, which has plastics in it, and there are so many things so I would in this case, rather optimize my health to be very good with detoxing and know about it, to tend to stress about everything but then if you're okay with like me, having a few clouded teas, you don't need to retain at all that's fine. That's my retention. But if you don't want, then you go with the plastics. So as I say, it's quite it's okay.

Claudia von Boeselager 44:29  
Okay, yeah, I have to pick my battles, as they say, right?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 44:33  
I didn't know that saying, but that sounds perfect. Invisalign treatment is perfect. So if you obviously want to have straight teeth, this is the way forward. The only thing I would maybe like to see more often is orthodontic treatment, which is this combined with a, let's say, chiropractor or an osteopath? Because again, we're working with false. So you forcing not just the truth, the whole truth is the whole body fix sample the fascia of this muscle here, Mr. mesivta fascia, it goes till you till this tooth till this foot like the big toe from here to there like a cross over. So if you have tension here all the time, obviously, your body will do anything against it. So if you can work with somebody who aligns you all the time and, say, once a week while you do that treatment, it's so much faster and so much painless. And this is just a way that it's not done yet. But this is how we would do it.

Claudia von Boeselager 45:25  
I love your holistic approach. Opening Yeah, clinics around the world, I know because it's so interconnected as well. And it's so exciting that this is the sort of new frontier of medicine and actually bringing the whole body together instead of the individual light pieces. So I really applaud what you're doing, Dr. Dome. Very, very cool. Let's go back to very simplicity and talk about toothpaste and mouthwash. So what are some do's and don'ts here for people listening?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 45:54  
So toothpaste is pretty simple; go as natural as possible. Number one would be to go fluoride-free, but that's not it. So besides fluoride, fluoride is a known neurotoxin. I want to avoid you don't just don't need it. And then, obviously, what they all put in these two spaces makes no sense. They put all various toxins in there like titanium dioxide, which is a nonimmune trigger filter, and Carrageenan they even put saccharin and aspartame, all these sweeteners, in it, why should it be sweet and, then maybe even abrasives? So just ditch that regular one and find something that is without it and maybe just based on coconut oil and has some nice essential oils to it. And maybe only so what I would use as a sweetener, xylitol, and if you want an active ingredient, you look for hydroxyl apatite, which is the natural thing that is that makes your tooth hard. And obviously, most things that make it 2000 nutrition and in micronutrients. But still, if you want to go from the outside, who drops your EpiPen, pretty straightforward. If you don't want to eat it, don't put it into your mouth.

Claudia von Boeselager 46:55  
Okay, that's a really interesting way to think about it. Is there a brand I know some people are not up to making their own potions for toothpaste.

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 47:03  
Brands evolving right now. I can personally recommend any brands because it's somehow in the UK, some on us. I just know that most of them have approached me and asked me to, so I have my own ideas about a good pace. But there are a couple more coming out of the trials as natural as possible. You find it in health food stores, so in London, you can probably go to Planet organic foods.

Claudia von Boeselager 47:27  
You'll find something there. Yeah. Okay, cool. So mouthwash. This is something that when I discovered it, I was really helping clients realize this is so potent because they're optimizing gut health, yet they're using these super toxic mouthwashes. So what's the problem with mouthwash?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 47:44  
The most common mouthwash that you find in your local retail, so I'll like just make those like this. I didn't want to say the name, but Listerine you still drinking Listerine or taking this in your mouth? Are you crazy? It's super acidic like acidic stuff will ruin your enamel. Why would you brush or do anything in your mouth that is a city besides your coffee that you like but not that Listerine? And it's not it's just a tonne of chemicals. Just look at the back page. I don't even know all these things. So if I cannot even spell it, I wouldn't put it into my mouth or into my body. It is in your body. And you have to understand, as I said before, the oral microbiome is about four to 10 fold bigger and more diversified than the wanting to you're in your gut. Yeah. And you want to do you want to sterilize or disinfect it on a daily basis, like sanitizing things in your mouth, which will ruin your immune system, ruin your nutrient absorption. And also obviously, again, is another toxin to be dealt with via labor, and you get that, and all these things are unnecessary. The better solution is coconut oil pulling very simple, old-school diabetic treatment. I recommend that always my bulletproof health, oral health care strategy, coconut oil pulling, it's probably all of the all of you guys have that for cooking. It's extra virgin coconut oil. You just take a teaspoon into your mouth and swish it around for five at least 15 minutes. And then don't swallow, spit it out, and don't put it into the sink. Spit it into the bin. And that's it. You can obviously optimize it as in my online course there are recipes in it and all these different things that you can maybe DIY an even better version with as few essential oils, but just for starters, use coconut oil fully go into my Instagram feed. There are lots of videos about it. Super simple, and there's coconut oil is not acidic. There's coconut oil is also antibacterial, antiviral, and antimicrobial, and it stores toxins. That's why you want to spit it out; kills bacteria. So and also, it's way better than flossing. It goes everywhere and cleans and sucks up the biofilm, so it's really a good strategy.

Claudia von Boeselager 49:48  
And for five to 15, Did I understand minutes?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 49:51  
Yeah, minimum hours don't make any sense. Okay. The thing is, you have to make it into a habit. Like with everything, like even the tongues scraping, just do it every day. And then it gets in, then you find how to do it. For example, I personally, my routine is the following I wake up, then I have a cup of time scraper and scrape my tongue, it's like, takes about 10 seconds like breath three, four times to get away of this debris and all the bacteria that are in the way that the ground of your tongue like the back then I personally always start with a concoction of different things that I'm drinking and make a spot. And as soon as I prepare my breakfast, I will do Coconut Oil Pulling because I'm anyways in the kitchen and doing something. So I just put the coconut oil in my mouth and work something for five to 15 minutes, spit it out. Then I have breakfast, bring my coffee, whatever. And then I wait 30 minutes until I brush. That's it. Wait 30 minutes because you don't want to as long as there are any acidic foods, which may be, yeah, maybe open up your enamel, so to speak, and make it a little bit more abrasive. You want to wait for your saliva to remineralize, and then you brush because otherwise, you brush away your enamel easier because it's already acidic and opened up.

Claudia von Boeselager 51:04  
Okay, yeah, cuz I wanted to ask next sort of what are your key strategies for maintaining oral health? So that would be an optimal morning oral health routine? And what about in the evening? And would you recommend even brushing during the day? Or?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 51:19  
No, no, it is always going to get in my world. Everyone is healthy. And everyone has the perfect lifestyle like you and myself already. So I'm never thinking about people that are don't they don't have it. So obviously, if you eat crappy foods all day long, you might want to clean twice a day, at least, maybe even three times, but that's the maximum. So is better twice a day. And that's it, like the most important bit is tuna patrician. Hands down, and the minerals and micronutrients you get through diet and maybe even through supplements. That's number one. If you don't have it, you maybe do a little bit more of the usual oral hygiene tricks that show you at the hygienist, but for me personally, I only do this, that's it. I don't even brush an evening. That's it. Really. No, I have clean cheese all day long. I eat stuff that makes my teeth clean. Usually, the food you chew, and if you chew, is harder than your teeth naturally. If you start obviously eating soft foods all day long, later sticky. You might want to do that more.

Claudia von Boeselager 52:19  
What are your favorite foods for good oral health?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 52:23  
Just the most basic foods Whole Foods that nature provides. You need meats, you need fish, eggs, like all really Whole Foods, and avoid processed foods like the most important ones to avoid are obviously always sugar but refined vegetables are really bad trans fats. gluten-containing grains are known key later, which caulk steals minerals that you might need for your teeth. And usually also say stay away from conventional dairy. Nothing to do with Hu Darius raw dairy is different. As you know, most people say it is important because of the calcium quality is wrong. Yeah, totally wrong. So I would say you need a few keys, let's say, micronutrients that I said it's always essential amino acids you need for enzymes and everything you need vitamin d3, which is actually a hormone-producing the sun. This is really crucial to get minerals into your teeth and bones, Vitamin K two, you need magnesium, you need zinc, you need boron. And you need omega three fatty acids so you can optimize your nutrition. So you get a lot from it. But I always supplement because it is just a better way forward. If you want to be optimized, just be okay and sustainable. Probably don't need it. But that's not my goal,

Claudia von Boeselager 53:40  
and not my audience, either. Which moves on to my next question if you can live to 150 years old, doctor them with excellent health? How would you spend those years of living to 150 with excellent health?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 53:57  
Yeah, obviously, I will optimize as soon as possible. So that whatever I do pays into that longevity, so whatever I want to do, I don't want to lose health in the first place every single day. Everything I do, as little as it is, should give me a bit of dividend towards optimal health. You make me live as long as possible, as young as possible. So basically, I want to be 150, the same as now, maybe grey here. That's it, I want to do my exercise. I want to have time with good friends and family as much as possible. Actually, that's my main thing to spend as much time as possible, but possible people are epic, positive people that are like-minded, that have fun, didn't want to change something in the world. So my goal is to help as many people as possible, and I can do this on my own. So that's why I look for other health vendors like myself, and I'm lucky to meet a lot of my friends again at the summit. And so that we can change it. So I'm all about inspiring by practicing teaching, preaching, whatever I do, and helping many people along the way to really change something. So if I can use that time wisely, I have a lot of impacts, and obviously, I want to have as much time as possible. My family of now became dead again last week. So I think legislations thanks for kids now, so I also want to have time with them. So everything needs to be optimized in that space too. And as long as health is first, health always comes. First, aesthetics comes follows. And then you stay young, you know how you know, you know, you can even reverse aging, for example, with hyperbaric oxygen or other things. It's possible. Yeah. But interference, then it, 's difficult.

Claudia von Boeselager 55:28  
Well, I have a biological age of 15 years younger at the moment; according to glycan age, I'm trying to get it down to 20 years old. And I wonder if we fix some of my dental, dental things that maybe we can hit the 2020 year ally?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 55:42  
That will, that will be actually interesting. I've never done this connection, but it can be something probably not within the first three weeks but maybe within the next six months. What is your irregular, hmm, chronological?

Claudia von Boeselager 55:54  
My chronological is 41 My biological age is 26. And I want to get it down to 20. And then keep it there. Up to

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 56:01  
that's my goal too, I would say, is only 25. No, but my biological, I want to have a 25. That's perfect. I'm 40 By the way, so like, Okay, say me? Yeah. The test is actually really good tests. I like to do that. Because obviously all our all the health of my, let's say all the health optimizers. Like last year at the summit, I asked the three questions, and every single one in the audience stood up. So even though all of us do all the good things already, still hold them back from the inside because we have been to the dentist. You see how much you can. My brother is a good example. He is doing everything in Thai Gam and Chinese medicine, and Tao is all these things to his ear. And he's like, dumb, I'm super healthy. But I have to cavitation we did that we diagnose and the Cone Beam. Let's see what happens. And he was, for example, the one who said, okay, I mean, one hour, Leslie, which is amazing. So he only needs 645. Now, it's more than refreshed. And you can measure this with Orion and all these different tools.

Speaker 3 57:03  
Yeah. Very, very close. Yeah, I think it's amazing.

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 57:07  
And I think it's the most overlooked part, unfortunately. And this is why I'm working. Even in functional medicine. They don't really talk about these things. They may be mentioned heavy metals being an issue. But that's it, basically. And what about root canals? cavitation? Never heard of it. What about chronic inflammation? What about this?

Claudia von Boeselager 57:25  
The first time I'm, I'm hearing about it. So I'm really, really excited to have all of this information as well. And on our journey to increase our health span for longer as well.

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 57:35  
Yes, that's the goal. And then, obviously, if you do that, you can help more people. I always believe when we heal ourselves, heal others. That's how my journey started to, like I was chronically sick already when I was 20.

Claudia von Boeselager 57:47  
Yeah, yeah, I've also had my health journey too. So we learn, and we can add live to tell the tale and help others to improve their health as well and enjoy life all the more for it. Right. So

Speaker 3 57:57  
back to you. Yeah, all about enjoying exactly

Claudia von Boeselager 58:00  
what excites you most about the future of health, well-being, and longevity over the coming years? And beyond that.

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 58:08  
What excites me personally is, obviously, what's fun, Jimmy is meeting people that want to help optimize the health of many and combine it to make a global network out of it and help and build communities on retreats. Because I think this is now easily doable with all the technology and all the social media. So I think, and obviously making it fun and easy, not dogmatic and stressing like this is part and I think I'm not as not too big into AI and all these things yet, but I believe we can even I think we can even do more than 100 150 should be done easily. Do you think so too? This is exciting. Which means you and I are both kids right now. Still. Right now,

Claudia von Boeselager 58:54  
every breakdown like I'm growing younger; this is great. That's actually going backward.

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 58:58  
mindset. And this is also something that's important to me because I want to change the way how dentistry medicine is done totally to help people see; there's so much more potential imagine everyone would be having fun doing all these things. Possibly doing fun things like as a kid. How great would this world be if you met only good people? Nobody's like, Oh, what a shitty day, like everybody's, Yeah, let's do this together. And I think it's it's a bright future. And I'm just I'm not listening to the negative things. I don't even care.

Claudia von Boeselager 59:28  
Yeah, no, but it's important to filter. And at the end of the day, the beauty is that we always have a choice, right? So we can choose to focus on the negative, or we choose to focus on things that are fun, make us happy, and then find the right people around us, the positive people write to.

Unknown Speaker 59:41  

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 59:43  
exactly. Nowadays, we have solutions. That's the most important thing. I can give you a solution. It's easy. You don't have to run around with a gap year or, like me, destroy it. And so if we have a good solution, and I believe there's more to come, and if the possibility works in my lifetime, that we don't even need to repair business, have a dentist, and More, but the 10 just becomes a usual normal medical expert that treats the whole body by starting in the mouth. That would be amazing. You don't even need to drill fill-in Bill anymore. So good.

Claudia von Boeselager 1:00:10  
I love your mission. And speaking of fun and toys, you have an interesting for people watching on the video you've interesting toys behind you. Can you tell us about your cars and skateboards?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 1:00:21  
Skateboard is just me because I'm a skater. And this never changed if you want a skater that never changes. So that started when I was 12 years old. 1995 and I'm still a big fan of skateboarding, still skateboarding myself, and obviously, with my boy's cars, I just like cars, but mostly my boys build them. So they're, they're all like this one here. For example, this is I think they all like 16, plus this car Bill did when he was four years old. So my job is done at that field already. So they're already better than me when it comes to these things. But I just like Lego building, and then they it's a nice card even better. So that this is my this is basically if you see more, there are lots of terrible standing around like stuff. Stuff like this. Taking care of me in the back.

Claudia von Boeselager 1:01:07  
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 1:01:09  
of course, you know that age. So I was like six, seven, and I started with karate, and there were turtles, so I'm still surrounded by them. And this is my cave.

Claudia von Boeselager 1:01:20  
Yeah. Beautiful. Yeah. Happy Place. Love it. Yeah. Dr. Dunford? My listeners interested in understanding biological Dentistry and Oral Health for longevity better, what online resources or books would you recommend they start with

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 1:01:35  
books, obviously, you can start with mine if you want to that's called it all in your mouth. You mentioned it in the beginning, but I'm about to launch. For the first time in a broader community, I launched my online course, which is a 10-day journey to optimal health. By starting in the mouth, you will learn everything about oral health killers, what to do about them, how they might even what is the solution for it, but you also learn everything about my food design concept, how to learn, learn how to think in nutrients, so that you finally understand that it's not about diet, but what you get from your food. Being a vegan or carnivore doesn't even matter. As long as you know what to do. You learn everything about the nine micronutrients in the whole health matrix. So try to compress a transformational journey of the 20s. I did it in 10 days. Like, let's say, it's about the execution that beats knowledge in this case, like execution focus. And this is the onboarding pause we do for my clients anyways, but my goal is to help many, so it's coming out. I think we will launch it within the next two to three weeks is just stay updated on my stories on Instagram would probably be ideal, but this will probably not air. So it will probably air when the cause is already existing. So you just go to my Instagram, that bio, you'll find books, podcasts, resources, my clinic, it's all in there. I hope so.

Claudia von Boeselager 1:02:53  
Yeah. Because where can people follow you? Can you share your handles and websites so that people can look you up directly?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 1:03:01  
I hope you maybe haven't in the resources, but the easiest is always my Instagram; the handle is Doctor DME. And number one, do me one. And there is a tap bio on everything where you can swipe to go to my clinic, which is DNA health and aesthetics, DNA aesthetics, and the E, which is the clinical webpage. You'll also find links to my supplement company, whatever you're interested in, that helps you optimize your health; which is my supplement company in substitution that actually started before my clinic, even in 2014 M, which is based on all the protocol like both my bone healing protocol and all these designs, again, to help many starting with my own patients myself like so. We always start with us to heal and optimize, and then hopefully, we can share and change the world for others to

Claudia von Boeselager 1:03:53  
exactly and we'll link all of those to the show notes in the show notes as well. Dr. Dome, Do you have any final ask recommendations or any parting thoughts or messages from my audience?

Dr. Dominik Nischwitz 1:04:03  
Life is beautiful, it's fun, and the more fun it is if you are healthy, so don't stress about health or anything just start started with a few baby steps listen to this amazing podcast and all the information. And what helped me 20 years ago when I was hungry and sick to have someone like me, that's why I'm nowadays the guy I needed and so get in close proximity with other people that have been doing it for a while and know how to optimize health. There are coaches out there that can help you because of the internet, there's too much information nowadays it's impossible to filter through you will end up being lost and probably don't even do it. So go to conferences like the summit and listen to these things. But there is a way just to take responsibility for your health if you resonate with us and want to become, let's say, 120 250 years old by not aging, but with a biological age. like Claudia from 20 years old when she's added in 20, then that's doable. And I think it's a fun goal to have. And don't be dogmatic about it. Just start on a journey by the optimism of exactly.

Claudia von Boeselager 1:05:15
