PA Periodontist Uses Nutritional Supplements to Fight Gum Infections

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - December 10, 2009) - The PA periodontists in Dr. David DiGiallorenzo's Collegeville and Williamsport practice recently began offering two lines of nutritional supplements to patients as a means of promoting the connection between good nutrition and improved periodontal health.

DiGiallorenzo, a PA dental implants specialist, introduced Isagenix and NuVerus because studies have shown that nutritional supplements can help patients improve their immune systems and fight gum infections.

"We use the Isagenix Cleanse and NuVerus's Euphoria protocol to strengthen immunity, improve digestion, build proteins, reduce inflammation and remove toxins from the body," said the periodontist. "All of these factors are crucial when dealing with chronic inflammatory diseases such as periodontal disease, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis and a variety of other conditions."

Strengthening immunity is of particular importance because immune response with periodontal infection changes the way oral tissues properly use nutrients, and that has a bearing on normal repair and healing. Nutritional deficiencies also can weaken the resistance of oral tissues to plaque bacteria, which can result in more inflammation.

The company maintains that once a body is cleansed, it is revitalized and stronger; it works more efficiently and performs at a higher level; and it resists illness more effectively.

Euphoria by NuVerus contains nigella sativa, or black seed, along with other fruits and plant extracts to create a drink that provides energy and antioxidants that help protect the body from harmful free radicals.

DiGiallorenzo calls nutrition "an essential part of the puzzle," and said many foods we eat today don't provide the nutritional support the body needs.

"We have become far too sophisticated and many of our foods lack the nutrients they once had," he said. "We all can benefit from nutritional supplements."

DiGiallorenzo began offering nutritional consultation as a routine part of his practice's therapeutic protocol to enhance healing for patients with periodontal disease and patients who have had dental implants.
