Jean Nordin-Evans, Groton Wellness: Holistic Dentistry, Wellness Center
Groton Wellness was founded by Dr. Bob Evans and his wife, Jean Nordin-Evans, in 2004, as a dental practice that believes a person’s teeth are integral to the health of the entire body. This underlying principle is practiced in adult and pediatric dentistry as well as in the orthodontic department. The vision grew to include medical treatments, a therapeutic spa and a wellness café that offers nutritious, whole-food dishes and take-out with many of the ingredients being purchased from local farms.
Groton Wellness is a holistic center with professionals in preventative and functional medicine, dental care, nutrition and a host of complementary and alternative therapies, including therapeutic spa services, thermography, EAV, Ondamed, specialized kinesiology chiropractic, psychotherapy and acupuncture, and has had enormous success treating chronic health issues such as Lyme disease, hormonal imbalance and internal toxicity. “Treating you as an individual, not your individual parts, is our unique wellness approach to health and healing,” says Nordin-Evans. “We treat by searching for the root cause of an issue and not just addressing symptoms.”
The center offers a mercury amalgam removal program, designed to remove toxic dental material, including mercury amalgam and other fillings, crowns or bridges. Mercury is a toxic material that can escape from fillings in vapor form and become absorbed directly into the brain, depleting and suppressing the immune system. The rate of vaporization increases when the fillings are stimulated by hot liquids, chewing and even brushing teeth. Nordin-Evans explains, “Mercury toxicity is a cumulative toxicity, storing itself in many tissues of the body for years, and possibly is the cause of chronic maladies that have affected people for years.”
Groton Wellness is pioneering and nurturing a vibrant wellness community by helping others understand, practice and maintain a joyful and healthy life. They embrace scientific, alternative and traditional healing methods that support physical, emotional and social well-being. “Clients come early and often to enjoy our nourishing, organic wellness café and join the ongoing wellness conversations on our blog, Facebook and in group get-togethers,” Nordin-Evans says. “They take a yoga or a nutritionally based and delicious cooking class, indulge in a therapeutic massage, have a restorative facial or infrared sauna to detox or just plain relax in our foyer while watching the fish and listening to the waterfall.”
