Kelli Jaecks, MA, RDH

Inflammation, it’s everywhere. After years of trickling research around oral and systemic connections, we now have an avalanche of data about the main connector and culprit: Inflammation. Inflammation can be pegged as responsible for everything from aging skin to autoimmune diseases. The more we learn about inflammatory processes and actions, the louder the message becomes: reducing inflammation must be an integral part of treating disease and maintaining health.
