Melanie was a young mother of two children and a housewife when she became ill. First her ear began popping every time she swallowed and she could feel the pressure of fluid in her ear. Soon it was hard to swallow. Gynecological problems were followed by systemic symptoms of overwhelming pain and fatigue. Eventually, Melanie, sick as she was, was forced to go get a job in order to pay her medical bills. She was miserable and in constant pain until the day she had her dead tooth pulled.
Before any of her symptoms began, Melanie had an infected tooth and a subsequent root canal. Later, although she experienced no pain at the site, the tooth was the root of her health problems. She felt better the first day that tooth was pulled, and all of her symptoms disappeared with a few months.
Melanie’s story is not uncommon, though the realization that the root canal is the source of disease is uncommon. Many people who have had a root canal suffer from a sudden onset of chronic disease and never realize the connection.
Why root canals are dangerous
After a root canal is performed, the tooth is dead. The remaining tissue and structure now provides a ripe environment for remaining bacteria. Tooth material (dentine) is not solid. It is rife with tubules – incredibly small canals or tunnels. If you were to stretch out the tubules in each tooth, tubules from incisors would reach 3 miles, while tubules from molars would reach 9 miles.
Once the pulp is removed from the tooth, there is no longer a blood or oxygen supply. The bacteria that remain can mutate to an anaerobic form and multiply until there are millions living within the tubules of the dead tooth. From there, they secrete potent toxins.
Holistic practitioners are finding these dead teeth are often a source of disease for the body – everything from unexplained symptoms to cancer. For example, Dr. Garcia tells of a woman who consulted several doctors for a mysterious swelling in one leg. Within one day after Dr. Garcia removed the woman’s tooth (an old root canal), the swelling was gone. When Dr. Thomas Rau, a Swiss physician who specializes in breast cancer, learned of the possible link between root canals and cancer, he investigated his last 150 patients and found that 97% of them did have one or more root canals – and they were on the same meridian side of the body as the cancer!
A dead tooth may spew toxins into the body with no detectible symptoms – no pain, no swelling of the gums – nothing to alert you that it is wrecking havoc upon your immune system and causing chronic and acute medical conditions that you are attempting to cure.
Speak with your holistic dentist about extracting and replacing cadaverous teeth and how to proceed with ongoing dental care. In the meantime, you must eat a diet that aids you in releasing those toxins, while building and supporting the immune system.
How to support your immune system
A truly healthy diet is the foundation of health and a healthy immune system. If your body is dealing with toxins from cavitations or if you are dealing with the aftereffects, give your body the nutrient dense foods it needs.Whether vegetarian, vegan, or carnivorous, your diet should consist of80% raw produce–more vegetables than fruits. This is not the time to challenge your already overburdened immune system, and it’s imperative to avoid foods that feed harmful pathogens. Buy organic–no herbicides,no pesticides, no GMOs. No artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, MSG, GMOs, or trans fats. No sugar. In other words, eat real food, not processed food.
