Find a Dentist
Nearly 40 years ago, Dr. Huggins found that removing amalgams and/or root canal teeth without following the proper, step-by-step protocol could cause the onset of autoimmune diseases that were not there previously. During the final decades of his life, he pioneered the initial development of what is now known as the Huggins-Grube Patient Protection Protocol. As a highly refined standard of care, it provides far more benefit than risk.
For years, Dr. Huggins referred prospective patients to dentists who had attended some of his seminars. Unfortunately, over the passage of time, many people called him back to complain that they were in an even worse condition after having their amalgams removed.
Upon investigation, it was determined that many of these dentists were omitting the majority of the Protocol recommended by Dr. Huggins. Moreover, they were placing root canals. Root canals, in fact, are worse at creating degenerative and autoimmune diseases than mercury exposure from amalgam fillings. Thus, Dr. Huggins felt that he was directing people from the proverbial frying pan into the fiery inferno of autoimmune disease. So, he stopped referring patients.
Eventually, however, in order to meet the public's increasing demands for safe dentistry, Dr. Huggins started a multi-disciplinary alliance of professionals and therapists, all of whom would be committed to the age-old medical principle "First do no harm.” Today, this alliance, known as Centers for Healing, offers three specific programs to patients, depending upon individual needs and situations: the Huggin-Grube Recovery Program, the Abbreviated Program, and the Full Program.
Currently, Dr. Blanche Grube and her team continue the work of Dr. Huggins by training individual doctors in the proper practice of the Huggins-Grube Protocol. Centers for Healing members offer the computer-generated Huggins-Grube Recovery Program of blood interpretations, biocompatible dental materials, sequential removal of offending materials, a clean air environment (as provided by negative ion generators that remove mercury from the surrounding air), instructional videos, and informed consent. In addition, the Abbreviated Program also offers acupressure, massage, in-house blood interpretations for nutritional guidelines, and conscious sedation.
Please note that all Centers for Healing members have separate practices from Dr. Grube’s office. As such, Dr. Grube does not teach or oversee general dental techniques of any private practice. All concerns or questions originating from dental treatment should be directed to the individual dentist's office that did the treatment. Dr. Grube has no jurisdiction in these circumstances.
