Louisa Williams Discusses Heart Disease and Biological Dentistry IABDM 2011 Carmel (Transcript)

Operator

I take great pleasure in introducing Dr. Louisa Williams, who received the naturopathic training at Bastyr University. She holds a Master’s degree in psychology, [always raised me] and a degree in chiropractic and is the author of Radical Medicine which is in itself a wonderful departure from the world of, well, drill, fill, and bill dentistry and see it, and that is, you know what that is, right? You show up, we see you and see you, that’s it. So Dr. Williams?

Louisa Williams

Thank you, John. Appreciate it. So thank you for asking me here, it’s such an honor to present in front of my favorite dental group and it’s so great to see friends, some of them I hadn’t seen in 20, 25 years. Feel like we have been through the wars together. You know, as holistic physicians and biological dentists, we have been through the wars together. So thank you so much for allowing me to present here.

So my first presentation is on naturopathic prophylaxis, it’s there in your notes. I have changed the name of your time, sorry. And I never know how long these talks are going to go. So why don’t we go ahead and get started because at the end, I have a – I am going to be having you guys workshop together on a new test I want you to try and perform in your office. So I want to have enough time for that.

All right. So you all know this but what changed in April 2007? After over 50 years, what standard of care was largely discarded that was very significant for all dentists but especially biological dentists? There you go. Antibiotic prophylaxis, it’s no longer — it was no longer advised for mitral valve prolapse and mitral valve disease typically, which is a big population, rheumatic heart disease, bicuspid valve disease, aortic stenosis and regular congenital heart conditions. However, it was still advised for high-risk patients, serious congenital heart conditions, patients that had undergone surgery, artificial heart valves, a significant history of infective endocarditis. And I think this is in your notes but I added recently the first two years following joint replacement, which is a sizable percentage nowadays, right? Lots of patients of ours are getting hip and joint surgery.
