You’ve heard the advice: If you want to live longer, eat healthy foods and exercise daily. But there’s a third piece of the puzzle, and it can add 10 to 15 years to your life.
It’s been right under your nose this whole time—literally.
Your mouth is the gateway to your body and is the most critical organ for improving your health, from childhood onward. Everything in the human life cycle is related to the mouth: fertility, childbirth, sleeping soundly, success in school, finding a mate, getting a job, psychological well-being, avoiding chronic or systemic disease, and aging well. Your mouth is a window into the health of your body as a whole; from its microbiome to its structure, it impacts your physical and mental wellness in countless ways.
Unfortunately, the mouth-body connection has been largely neglected by American medicine . . . until now.
There are three major healing traditions in the world: Western biomedicine, supernatural healing, and holistic healing. In a world of increasingly blended cultures, languages, and traditions, what happens when these contrasting healing practices clash? In A Case of Culture, author Snigdha Nandipati delves into the unspoken challenges that immigrant patients face when seeking healthcare in the West, exploring how we can bridge these cultural divides in our healthcare system. The solution? Cultural brokers.

Meet Rebecca, an adorable gal with an intimate secret…
For Rebecca, sex is a joke missing a punchline. No crashing waves. Only pangs of inadequacy. At twenty-eight, shouldn’t she have had one by now? Her snickering ex thought so. His taunts echo in her ears as he rolls out of her bed. Then out of her life.
After enrolling in an unconventional study for women, Rebecca is stunned by the power she holds inside. But her promise to avoid intimacy hits a snag when a handsome neighbor moves across the hall. Their chemistry is electric, but the timing couldn’t be worse!
If he learns her secret, she’ll lose her best chance at love. But if her intimacy lessons fail, she’ll be left eternally broken. Unlovable.
Can Rebecca find the answers she needs to love someone new—and finally love herself?
