My friend, Dr. Richard Gorris, from South Dakota was gracious enough to give a nutrition lecture at my office. He used to be an oral surgeon, but developed mercury poisoning as a direct result of his work as a dentist. He left dentistry to return to his love of nutrition and became a counselor/teacher/promoter of good nutrition.
His experience as a radio talk show host, a guest on TV talk shows, and a lecturer around the country made it easy for him to extend his usual 90-minute presentation to almost three hours at my office, and the audience wanted more. A second lecture had to be scheduled for the following week.
Dr. Gorris believes all degenerative disease begins in the colon, and there are only two reasons for degenerative disease: lack of nutrients absorbed into the body, and accumulation of debris such as toxins and waste material.

Your mouth is the gateway to health or disease. Our digestive tracts are designed to process food in two days or less. Foods that can be processed within this time frame include fruits, vegetables, fish, and poultry.
Foods that take longer to process provide opportunities for toxins to be reabsorbed into the body and should be kept to a minimum or avoided entirely. Lamb takes four days to process, beef five days, the typical fast- food American diet seven days, and pork/cold cuts nine days.
Here are his guidelines:
Make every day a multisensory one. It’s the adventure of your lifetime. I hope this helps to give you some guidelines for better health.
And one last quote to share with you from Dr. Gorris:
“He who has health has hope. He who has hope has everything.” – Arabian proverb.
I focus on the topics you care about most.
