“This book is packed full of critical information regarding the health of our mouths and our spiritual health as well. The mix in Kimberly’s story of both physical health and spiritual connection is wonderful.” Debra Beck, Award winning Author and Mentor, My feet Aren’t Ugly: A Girl’s Guide to Loving Herself from the Inside Out
“Reading this will open your eyes to the toxic world of hidden dental infections. Sometimes in your quest for health, you end up having to do all the research yourself. Kimberly had to learn what 99% of dentists do not learn in dental school. I applaud Kimberly for her willingness to share her story.” Dawn Ewing PhD, Doctor of Integrative Medicine, Executive Director, International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine
“At The Root highlights the problems that can occur when medical diagnoses miss the root cause. Kimberly’s book details her determination to find and resolve her health issues.” Miranda Esmonde-White, Author of New York Times Bestseller, Aging Backwards: 10 Years Younger and 10 Years Lighter in 30 Minutes a Day
"In the health sciences, books abound in reciting sterile anatomy, physiology, molecules and elements to the exclusion of the human element — the reality of what illness does to people and their families. “At The Root” is the real life story of the devastation of dental cavitation and one woman’s heroic journey to discover and overcome this life-altering, iatrogenic disease which anyone can unwittingly suffer at the hands of well-intentioned Science that fails to understand the holistic impact of bones, nerves and teeth on overall health. Here is a shining example of why modern dentistry must evolve, and why Biological Dentistry is the ethical future of Dentistry. Could cavitation be a “foci of infection” that is mysteriously undermining your health? Find out in “At The Root.” — WellnessWiz Jack Tips [Ph.D., C.C.N.]
Even if you are not a medical person, you will be absorbed by the details in, "At The Root." It is a great blend of science and art. Once digested, you will realize, like I did, that Kimberly Miles' experiences prepare her for this tedious pilgrimage toward healing. Therefore, it is not just a tale of illness and struggle towards health. Kimberly's experience and awareness along this 30-year long journey have culminated in a philosophical book that is truly remarkable and even magical. -- Kimberly Luyckx for Reader Views

The author’s journey led to the mind-body connection, oral health and biological dentistry. Traditionally, medicine and dentistry are separate entities even though our body is one unit. Bio dentistry uses the best of modern clinical dental techniques with bio compatible, natural and holistic practices. The focus is on the whole person and this mouth-body connection. This personal journey to wellness helps us all fast track identification of causes for possible solutions. It may not result in an answer but it certainly helps us to eliminate causes.
There is a lot of logic to biological dentistry. Oral health is an area that is of ignorance to many of us. We think teeth, dentists, pain. Oral health and dentistry are too often ignored or set aside on a back burner. I never considered the impact of oral health on my body. I have 9, count them, 9 root canals! They needed to be done but had I better knowledge could some have been avoided? My tooth fairy kindly left money under my pillow but had we known of the mouth-body connection back then I would have asked for the knowledge that the authors’ journey now brings to us.
For me this book is a reminder that we are personally responsible for our health; our healthcare practitioners are our support team and help us discern the issues and best possible treatments for successful outcomes.
Prior to this book I pondered about the impact my dental health was having on my body. Every time I needed a root canal I panicked. I felt a direct connection between the tooth and my heart; forget about my wallet (or because it was going to be a significant impact on my wallet). Now that I know about the practice of bio-dentistry I feel obligated to revisit the work in my mouth. The future of my life depends upon it.
The only reason that I didn’t give the book 5 stars is because it could have been tightened up quite a bit, as there is a lot of unnecessary repetition in concepts and information. Otherwise, the book is great and the information is much needed in the public domain.
I love how Kimberly explained her thoughts about “negative energy”. Quoting from her book: “What is called bad or negative energy does not exist, it is in fact just a turning-away from or a form of resistance to love”.
