Dental and Dr. McClure, helping the body heal itself

Have you ever experienced love at your dentist's office?  That's what I experience every time I visit the office of Mark McClure, DDS, at National Integrated Health Associates (NIHA).  When I first met Dr. McClure in December 2019, he did what no dentist (and no other physician of any kind) has ever done:  He took my hands, looked me in the eye, and said, "I'm so happy to meet you" (or words to that effect).  I was smitten.  I've now been through 5 procedures with him between January and April of this year:  mercury removal, damaged tooth repair via crown, bridge removal, new crown on bridge anchor tooth, and extraction of root canal tooth.  For each procedure, Dr. McClure was present and caring.

In particular regarding the extraction:  I was very afraid of having the extraction and put it off for months. Though I accepted Dr. McClure's assessment that the root canal tooth was leaching toxins into my body and his recommendation to extract it, I'm very against invasive procedures, especially removing body parts!  He never pushed me to do it - just educated me with stacks of materials.  I came to my own conclusion and did it.

As the extraction was about to begin, I expressed my worry and began asking him what the steps of the procedure would be.  Dr. McClure looked me in the eye and said, "I'm a good surgeon."   I realized in that moment that I could trust him, so I gave the go-ahead.  He prayed with me.  I asked for someone to hold my hand.  Dr. McClure said, "Shirley is a professional hand-holder."  He called her in, and she held my hands tightly throughout the entire 20-minute procedure. By the way, the procedure, which took place 3 weeks ago, went well, and I'm healing fine.

I could go on and on with other examples of Dr. McClure's care.  If anyone wants to contact me directly for more, I'll be happy to oblige.  I'll end with another question:  Have you ever been to a dentist's office where your concerns were sincerely listened to and assuaged by accessible staff members, no matter how many times you called or emailed?  I hadn't, until I went to Dr. McClure's office.  Dental practice manager Laurie Parrinello, dental associates Nicole terElst and Scott Richards, dental technicians Kia and Alem, and the above-mentioned Shirley Butler, have all been way more than 100% supportive.

Finally, I'm not even mentioning the holistic nature of the practice - that would be a whole other email. Suffice it to say that It's such a relief to visit a medical office that speaks my language of helping the body heal itself. Thank you, NIHA! 5/20

 
 
 

Dr. Tapscott, an exceptional practitioner

I was on a mission to explore healing possibilities when I encountered Denia Tapscott MD. Seeing numerous practitioners without much help, l did not have a lot of hope. However, from the initial consult till the present I have found Dr. Tapscott an exceptional practitioner with excellent assessment abilities. She is able to look at me holistically and develop a very focused plan of care that is realistic to implement. Her professional and compassionate communication skills made it easy for a very sick person to understand complex concepts. I highly recommend Dr. Tapscott to all that wish to explore a better quality of life.

As I begin to recover, I sign myself, Lazarus. 2020

 

 

Laurie and Nicole in Dental

I just wanted to send you a BIG THANK YOU for working on getting all the information for my insurance. Your work paid off big time and my insurance covered almost 50% of the bill! This made a big difference for me and I'm very appreciative to you both!

Dr. Tapscott

I came to Dr. Tapscott after months of suffering from joint pain, brain fog, muscle cramps, weight gain, fluid retention, and the list goes on.  Numerous doctors told me there wasn't anything medically wrong with me and that I just needed to exercise, drink more water, and that my symptoms were just part of the aging process.  Dr. Tapscott took the time to get to know me as a person - what I do for work, what I do for fun, what I eat, how/when/if I exercise, and of course, my medical issues.  It is because of her that I can now begin a new chapter in my life - one of health.  I now know I have Lyme disease, but more than that, Dr. Tapscott has not only provided me with the tools to treat Lyme but also how to live a more healthy life in all that I do.  I will definitely recommend Dr. Tapscott and NIHA to others.

Dr. Gant saved my husband's life

5 Star Google Review

Dr. Gant saved my husband's life. He faced a terminal diagnosis of stage 4 melanoma. Even though we were given no hope by other very reputable oncology doctors, Dr Gant spent countless hours with us to determine the biological cause of cell mutation and developed a treatment plan that worked. We are forever grateful to Dr. Gant and the team at NIHA who tirelessly helped our family. M.D. 2018

Dr. McClure and Dental Team

I am so grateful for the care that I received from Dr. McClure and the phenomenal team. I was emotionally overcome by the end results of my treatment. I was immediately able to reap the benefits of the procedures for my chronic bacterial circulatory infection and now, untold, afflictions are curtailed. And if that was not enough, I was chartered to and from your headquarters with divine intervention.

This opportunity with Dr. McClure and team fortifies my body to continue my duties free of premature exhaustion, enhanced gaiety, and overall healing of my mind, body, and spirit.

My inspired duties are to employ daily, empirical, multi-sensory learning outcomes for our at-risk youth in East Orange, NJ as a special education teacher. These objectives are not easily implemented as the road is unpaved, the expenses are not allocated in the school budget and the necessity of training my assistants are components of my professional mission. The success or immediate results of these world class objectives is the fuel needed to propel our inspired team and create an environment similar to your office. For it is truly a miracle, the effects are immeasurable and ultimately who we are as Americans.

In my case, all of this is true with the root canal tooth, the four cavitations, and the chronic bacterial infection; tears flood my eyes imagining what is possible. Now that I’m am free of these conditions, during the summer, I will dwell in the possibilities preparing to employ our greatest attempts to date for the 2019 - 2020 school year and beyond. With all the warmth and gratitude I can covey via this email; thank you!

In closing, I controlled my desire to rejoice teary eyed and bear hug Dr. McClure and team, it is my intention for this note to deliver that sentiment and hugs. 6/19

"NIHA saved my health and my life- twice!"

I first came to NIHA in 1999. After that I went for 5 years without so much as a cold. I'm 69 years old and on no prescription medications at all! I attribute that to the health restoration from NIHA when I worked with the practice from late 1999 into 2001.
But recently I have had several other issues with pain and diverticulitis and abcesses found in my colon. I went through my insurance and sought medical advice from traditional physicians. In a short period of time, they recommended that I get a pic line for antibiotics, and schedule a hospital stay for colon re-section surgery.

I know the importance of a whole body approach, a healthy diet, and practicing meditation and Reiki (Master level) on a daily basis and do my best to make my health a priority.The thought of colon surgery as my only option for healing did not fit with my understanding of what my body needed. So- I went back to NIHA because I needed a program with hope. I needed to find a physician who knew what was going on with me internally and could help me address my health issues.
Dr. Margarita Kullick is that person. She was able to read the MRI and immediately put me on a protocol addressing colon inflammation, diverticulitis pouches, two abscesses, two fistula and boosting overall health. Both my previous and current health issues were stress induced but created extremely different symptoms.
Now, months after being on Dr. Kullick's protocol, I feel the best I have felt in 10 years. My body has come back into balance to heal itself. The change is unbelievable. I no longer have colon inflammation, the diverticulitis pouches are no longer swollen, the abcesses are smaller and healing, and the fistula has healed.
She is wonderful and I adore her. NIHA has saved my health- and my life- twice! It is worth every penny to me. 11/17
