Referral to medical doctor, chiropractor, acupuncturist, psychologists, priests and other outside practitioners may be made to complete the whole body-focused diagnosis.

Personal comfort with blankets, pillows, restful music and videos and alpha-stim relaxation techniques are common. Minimally invasive dentistry with bonding, inlay/onlays of safe biocompatible dental materials are utilized. Safe removal of the toxic fillings and crowns are completed with rubber dam, nosepiece, and drape protection for the patient, and high speed vacuum. The patient and staff are protected with HEPA air filters, face masks, open fresh air windows, gloves and appropriate protective clothing. Later safe alternative restorations are placed with biocompatible resins, porcelains, gold, zirconia and glues. Removal of infected teeth and cavitation areas in the jaw should be performed and the bite and TMJ may be correctly aligned and stabilized if necessary. Chelation, detoxification, and cleansing should be taught by the dentist or appropriate outside healthcare practitioner. Referrals may be made to medical, chiropractor, acupuncture, and osteopathic doctors, psychologists, massage or physical therapists, priests and many other professionals to obtain optimal health and balance for the patient.
