Mark Reaksecker, DMD is a 1988 graduate, with honors, from the Oregon Health & Science University School of Dentistry, earning his doctorate degree. While there, he attained the Oregon Society of Periodontists’ “Outstanding Senior in Periodontics” award. He was a member of the ADA (American Dental Association) and maintained a private dental practice for over 28 years.
Throughout those years, he marveled at the complexity and capabilities of the human body with its ability to heal, even from adverse circumstances. The body is an amazing creation—the gift of life from God. His subsequent in-depth study of nutrition and cancer, plus how they affect the human body, intensified the curiosity of how biology, physiology, and chemistry all play interactive roles. It took four years to research and two years to write Healthy Body, Happy Life, but it was a creation from his passion and the unending desire to learn.
