Episode 000 | Introduction
Hello and welcome to the zero edition of “Elmar´s Tooth Talk: The missing link to total health. It’s great to have you here. They call it zero because it is mainly about how the podcast works.
My name is Dr Elmar Jung.
So, before we start let me tell you, What’s in it for you in this episode:
We talk about:
- WHO is Dr Elmar Jung
- WHY does he produce the Podcast
- WHAT is the Podcast about,
- Is there a sequence or structure in the episodes
In this first episode, they actually call it “zero episode” because it only provides information about the podcast itself, you will get to know who is the guy producing this podcast, what is the podcast is about, why I produce it, how it is delivered and most importantly, what’s in it for you, what benefits you will gain from listening.
A few years ago, I started a Podcast for my German audience which I really enjoyed producing. Over the last few months I have been kicked in the b, no let’s say motivated by my dear German friend Michael Reimold. He said you must produce an English Podcast. You have an obligation to share your knowledge with a far bigger audience.
So, thanks Michael. That’s what friends are for.
Another big Thank you to my friend Graeme Dinnen from ToothWizards.com who’s voice you listen to in the Intro and Outro.
And one more Thank you. This one goes to Sam, my beloved partner. Her supports in all matters is invaluable.
Now being desk bound due to some tiny little critters is the best time to get my message, get my experience, my knowledge out to the English speaking crowd.
A word of warning
This Podcast is my personal opinion as a Health Consultant. It is unlikely to be congruent with mainstream opinion. The General Dental or Medical Councils point of view or any mainstream medical or dental association will most likely differ from my perspective.
Therefore, consult these organisations, your doctor, dentist or health practitioner for a second opinion.
Listen to the podcast, with an open mind. As my latest book suggests “Shut your mouth and open wide” – that obviously is your mind – and get inspired, disturbed, annoyed, agitated, interested, motivated, get full of beans or as Mary Poppins would put it, get
Super cali fragi listic expi ali do cious
or something like it.
No matter what, as long as it touches you in some way or the other, I’ve accomplished my mission, to get you feeling and thinking.
Now in my capacity as a Health Consultant and Podcaster, I take the liberty to speak my heart and am sure you’ll appreciate it.
This Podcast is for obvious reasons in no way intended to diagnose or treat any disease or condition. It is neither medical nor dental advice, nor should it be construed it as such.
I highly recommend that you always seek the opinion of the relevant qualified health professional before you make any changes to your diet, prescription drug use, lifestyle, exercise activity or before you undergo any dental procedure.
All information in this podcast is provided to you as guidance only, no medical advice is ever provided.
A few more words of caution. You must not rely on the information in this podcast as an alternative to medical advice from your doctor or other professional healthcare provider.
Also, if you have any specific questions about any medical matter, you should consult your doctor or other professional healthcare provider rather than a Health Consultant called Elmer Tschang.
If you think you may be suffering from any medical condition, you should seek immediate medical attention and you should never delay seeking medical advice, disregard medical advice or discontinue medical treatment because of some information you received from this podcast.
I trust I made my point clear.
Now, that we got the legal stuff out of the way, here is
What qualifies me to broadcast this podcast?
Other than offering my advice as a Health Consultant, I am a qualified holistic Dentist, a Naturopath, I hold the Austrian Doctor´s Diploma in Diagnostics and Therapy with Dr F-X-Mayr Therapy. A very comprehensive two-year education about gut health, diet, lifestyle, supplementation and detoxification.
I trained as NLP master coach and I hold a few other qualifications too.
I present this podcast in my capacity as Health Consultant .
I’m German, which many of you I’m sure have already grasped. I grew up in Stuttgart, the city where arguably the best cars are manufactured. Well, at least back in the times. That is Porsche and Merc. Some others might say oh no it is Munich, Maranello or Goodwood. Well, each to their own.
Before I became a Health consultant, I studied dentistry.
How did I become a dentist?
No-one in my family had the faintest idea that I would become a Health Consultant, a Naturopath let alone a holistic Dentist or even a normal dentist. So, you can imagine it came as a huge surprise when my parent’s son went to study at the School of Dentistry.
But how did I get into the school of dentistry, how did I actually get my place?
I can tell you that my ‘A’ levels were far away from even thinking of becoming a dentist. The required standard to obtain direct access to dental school was set very high and only the smartest kids could get in straight from High school.
As if the smartest at school necessarily become the best doctors, dentist, solicitors, the list goes on.
Anyhow, back in the early 80’s there were actually five ways to make it into Dental school. The first one, get best grades and move straight in – as we just explored was not an option, regrettably.
The second option was to wait and wait……. In fact, I could have had to wait 5-6 years and then be rewarded with a place at dental school.
Now those who know me, also know that waiting is a discipline I don’t score very high. In skiing terms I much prefer what is called “active queuing” which means you look for a way to get to the front of the queue as straight as possible.
I know, not a very British virtue but hey I’m German.
The third way to get into dental school was to go abroad to Hungary for example but learning Hungarian was not really my thing either! Nowadays it might come quiet handy …
The fourth option was to pay a solicitor DM20,000. He would then secure me a place through court action, but I was missing the financial resources to do that.
The last resort was a lottery where some lucky applicants would be picked and receive their place.
Now as it turned out I happened to be one of those lucky ones and just a few days before my 20th birthday I received an early birthday present, a letter offering me a place at University to study Dentistry in Tuebingen, a university town near Stuttgart.
I don’t know if this option is still available nowadays.
Sadly, very early on in my educational journey, in fact the first year, my father passed away at the very young age of only 49. Having been a heavy smoker for many decades, he succumbed to lung cancer. This came as a blow to me and was definitely a reason why I was so eager to learn more about all kinds of health matters.
Knowing what I know now, I believe it wasn’t just the smoking. There are other reasons why people die young and we will dedicate an episode or two to these reasons. Looking into the real reasons about what is causing of dis-ease.
Back then in my early 20’s, I thought well almost 50 years old, is already quite old. But now, today, having passed my 50st birthday since many years, I can’t believe I thought that back then because I’m still feeling very young, 35 at max.
Back to university
In the third year of my studies I came into contact with amalgam. At University we were told that amalgam and the mercury contained within the amalgam, does not cause any problem to health whatsoever because as soon as it is in your mouth it is fine, and we wouldn’t have to worry.
Now, when your University Professor tells you something, as a student you are obliged to believe it …… well, at least for a while until you know better.
About the same time my interest for natural healing arose when I contracted a skin problem. The Dermatologist I went to couldn’t help me with any of his creams or potions and it was then I researched for an alternative solution which is when I discovered homeopathy.
As a result, the homeopathic treatment I received resolved my skin condition. I was inspired to learn more, and I attended further training courses that took me beyond mainstream dentistry into holistic dentistry.
I attended many courses which gave further insight into a holistic perspective, one course instinctively led to another which included: two years of Dental Homeopathy, many years of Applied Kinesiology, Hypnosis, Acupuncture, Bio-Resonance and Functional Orthodontics to name just a few.
Since 1998 I am also a qualified Member of the International Association of Holistic Dentists in Germany and in 1999, I received a licence to work as a Heilpraktiker, which is similar to a Naturopath and paved the foundation for my work as Health Consultant.
When I bought my first dental practice in 1991 together with a colleague from University, we were almost denied the practice because I was so strictly against mercury.
We eventually took over the practice close to the Stuttgart main train station and worked without using mercury amalgam. At that point we were however still offering gold alloys and doing root canal treatments and my colleague even offered implants.
Say Goodbye to Root canals
In 1993, we invited one of Europe’s leading specialist in root canal treatment to give a training course. A few days later, we were just ordering the necessary equipment to follow his recommendations, I got hold of a copy of George Meinig ‘s book “Root Canal Cover-up”, where he describes all sorts of nasty health problems that can arise from root canals.
This way I came across a dentist called Dr Weston Price who made these discoveries already in the 1920’s.
I was very keen on researching more information on this and started informing my patients of the potential dangers with this type of treatment so they could make an informed decision as to whether or not they wanted to continue with it.
I, myself, from this point on did not perform anymore root canal work.
In 1996 I sold my part of the practice and moved with my family near the Swiss border and the river Rhine, where my wife at the time, a medical doctor, and myself set up a medical and dental practice.
The practice concept was fantastic, and we were able to help many desperate patinets. but unfortunately, the relationship concept was rather poor. So, my marriage didn’t last, and I moved to England in 2005.
Holistic dentist colleagues
It was in England that I came into contact with Graeme and Lillian Munro-Hall who had established an extraordinary holistic clinic North of London, and with whom I worked for almost eight years.
Graeme and Lilian retired in 2017 and I moved down to the South Coast now working out of Atlantic Clinic in Southampton offering dental treatment and Health Consultancy.
Patients come to us from all over UK, Europe, some even travel from as far as Singapore or the Caribbean. Our main interest and experience is in safe metal replacing, following IAOMT’s SMART Protocol, removing necrotic jawbone, called cavitations, and checking structural and functional issues. Each treatment is accompanied by high dose Vitamin C infusions.
Vitamin C comes handy at present, as research showed that the Coronavirus doesn’t appreciate high dose Vitamin C infusions.
It is extremely rewarding to work with patients who have such serious ailments and health issues and watch how the treatment often dramatically improves their health sometimes after only a very short time.
You can read some amazing testimonial on my website dr-elmar-jung.com
I want you to benefit from my 30 years of experience and show you what kind of health threats dental treatments and dental materials can have on your physical, mental or emotional wellbeing because to this date only very few Doctors, Dentists and other health practitioners connect dental treatments or dental materials with overall health symptoms.
Many patients suffer for years, sometimes decades and no treatment gave any relief. Very frequently and after numerous and costly examinations, patients are sent home with a diagnosis advising them that they are okay and that everything is in their head or they just have to live with it.
To avoid this happening to you is the reason for this podcast.
Luckily the pressure from educated patients is growing which hopefully will create a movement so practitioners have to re-think their sometimes tunnel-vison-like approach to their client’s problems.
After a few episodes you will know about the effects that dental treatments and dental materials can have on your body and as you start accumulating more and more knowledge you will feel more confident in taking responsibility for your own health issues.
Soon you become educated in health topics and are able to ask the right question and more importantly decide for yourself what is the best way forward for you when it comes to decisions about your health.
How does the podcast unfold?
The first 20 episodes or so give you an overview of the different treatments and materials including topics such as amalgam fillings, root canal treatments, jawbone necrosis, orthodontics and fluoridation.
You will get to know the real reasons for tooth decay and gum disease and we will talk about holistic orthodontics.
I will provide examples of real cases where patients have been given effective treatment and their health has been transformed.
Obviously, for legal reasons all names have been changed to ensure patient confidentiality and when I use the generic term “patient” all kind of gender can feel addressed. After the basics, you can listen to interviews with doctors, dentists, naturopaths, scientists and other therapists to provide you with more information and knowledge about their experiences with holistic treatments and experiences.
How often is the podcast published?
You can already listen to whole bunch of episodes and I aim to publish one Podcast every week.
Podcasts will be published on a Wednesday morning at 6am.
6 o’clock in the morning? Yes 6am Wednesday morning. This way you get the information I trust will inspire you for the day ahead so you will take control of your health straight from the start.
How long does a Podcast last?
A solo podcast lasts between 10 – 20 minutes and an interview podcast about 45 – 60 minutes. There will be the odd occasion where I find something very interesting or of immediate importance and I’ll publish a podcast in between.
Okay, that’s it for the introduction. Great to have you here.
