Dr. T.K. Stone – Dental Health and Natural Health Expert

Dr. T.K. Stone

Dr. T.K Stone is the author of the book, The Fertile Ground: One Man with a View of Life on Earth, available to purchase on Amazon, and runs a health consulting business in California.

Dr. T. K. Stone fell in love with the dental arts as a dental laboratory technician in the US Army. Working with dentists inspired him to become one. Finishing very high in his class, he joined the faculty and later specialized at the same dental school. In private practice, he focused on TMJ disorders and complicated restorative rehabilitation cases. He was also invited to teach at another dental school.

As a professor in the 1980’s and 1990’s, he published articles in health magazines on the mind and body connections, relating to the dental health of the teeth, gums and jaw joints (TMJ).

The 1960’s were a very inspiring decade for Dr. Stone as a teenager. Not only his passion for the dental arts was born, his other passion in life, mind and body health, flourished throughout these years from his ninth to nineteenth birthdays.

His book, “The Fertile Ground” published in 2011, summarizes an understanding about life. Our planet Earth, and Mother Nature, intends a healthy existence for all its creatures, free of the diseases commonly seen in today’s humanity. This unhealthy lifestyle doesn’t exist in our evolutionary past. Tooth decay and all the other degenerative diseases are not seen in our world’s wildlife, not now or in the past.

We are all related within the genetics of Nature’s “Tree of Life.” We all live and survive with the same natural laws, under the same sun. We humans take an unnatural direction, which has consequences. Why?

rachel-duran-stillRachel helps mothers feel healthy in a way that works for their lifestyle and budget. She knows life can be very hectic and being a mom is a job in itself! She also knows that making time for yourself is a very hard thing to accomplish, so making time to get to the gym can be tough. You might feel guilty for leaving your child, worried about them getting germs in the gym’s childcare center or having them calling you while you’re working out to change your baby!
