Gary M. Verigin, DDS, inc. is a humanistic, holistic dental practice in Northern California. Dr. Verigin provides integrated, biological and mercury-free dental services.
This blog is a companion to Dr. Verigin’s quarterly newsletter Biosis: Integrated Health Solutions, which features teaching and comment from Dr. Verigin, motivational ideas and holistic tips on nurturing your health and wellbeing. You’ll find articles from past issues, as well as subscription information, on Dr. Verigin’s main practice site.
The blog’s title plays on the ancient Greek aphorism gnothi seauton, “know thyself.” We believe that knowing thy self and thy health are both crucial to wellbeing. For as our practice philosophy states:
Knowledge is not only power. It is empowering.
The more that people understand their bodies and the mechanisms that cause illness and wellness, the more committed they become to pursuing and embracing wellness.
We understand that learning is motivated by the personal need for fulfillment.
We understand that effective learning is more than just getting information. It happens when the information hits home intellectually, emotionally and spiritually – when it takes on personal meaning.
