How to Get The Most Out of Your Greens

Chewing a salad only allows you to absorb a small amount of the nutrients it has to offer.

To absorb nutrients from a leafy green plant, the cell wall has to be broken down so that the nutrients can be absorbed into the bloodstream.

How to Get The Most Out of Your Greens

Chewing a salad will only break down 20 to 30 percent of the cell walls. This prevents you from absorbing most of the nutrients even though they are passing through you.

What is the best way to break down the cell wall?

Juicing greens is better than chewing them but BLENDING them is the best way to break down the cell walls so that the nutrients can be absorbed in your system.

Juicing will allow you to retain many of the nutrients but you will lose lignans, fatty acids, and amino acids that are bound to the cell membranes. With blending, you also get the fibers and cellulose which are great for your system.

  • Always eat whole foods to get the most amount of nutrition.
  • Your gut is your body’s first line of defense against toxicity.

Any severe illness or decay in the body or the mouth means a poor immune system. A doctor should always address the acute symptoms but never leave the underlying cause un-addressed. The body must be diagnosed as a whole and treated entirely as a functioning machine. Health is an ongoing commitment and never a finite state reached that will remain unless maintained.

The body will fight off bad bacteria if it is healthy and full of good bacteria. So getting the most out of your foods is an essential part of keeping your mouth healthy.

Our formula for health is:

S + N -T = Physical Health
Proper Structure + Good Nutrition – Toxicity = Physical Health

Dr. Beata A. Carlson at Clearwater, FL

Dr. Beata A. Carlson

A graduate from the University of Maryland, Dr. Beata A. Carlson, is an established professional in dentistry. She is a firm believer in taking on a holistic approach to treating her patients’ dental concerns. It entails a general awareness of the body. It caters to the overall well-being of the patient using natural, biocompatible, and mercury-free dentistry methods instead of ‘spot treatment,’ where solutions are obtained to fix the temporary/surface wound instead of the underlying issue.

This approach promotes healthy living and proper oral care practice for day to day life. Dr. Beata A. Carlson insists on educating her patients on how to engage in such methods to help them achieve a better quality of life.

She invests both time and resources in the latest and most advanced technology to aid in diagnostics and treatment plans for her patients while maintaining a comfortable and relaxing environment.

Dr. Beata A. Carlson is also a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, The American Academy of General Dentistry and The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

I had a tooth extracted at a regular dentist before. I remember intense pain after the novacaine wore off and 2.5 days on painkillers. When I had a tooth extracted with Behm, they used a process that gave me zero pain immediately after the procedure or in the days following. They are very consultative and welcoming. Very happy with my experience.
