Could a Root Canal Be the Cause of Your Chronic Health Problem? Root canal treated teeth may harbor harmful microbes, the toxic metabolic waste products of which can have systemic health impacts and contribute to a variety of chronic diseases. The Netflix documentary “Root Cause” investigates these issues, interviewing doctors and dentists around the world, including yours truly (although briefly), who believe many health problems can be traced back to these infected teeth. Interviewed medical professionals include: The film details the personal experiences of film director Frazer Bailey (played by actor Ben Purser), who spent a decade trying to track down the root cause of his chronic anxiety, fatigue, nausea, dizziness and insomnia. A trailer is included above. The full film is available on Netflix. For those of you who don’t have access to Netflix, you can view my previous video on root canals. Root Canals Are a Source of Chronic Infection There’s really no reason to imagine a dead tooth wouldn’t cause the same kind of problem.

Yet half of the dentists in the U.S. still use dental or “silver” amalgam, 50 percent of which is mercury, not silver. Mercury is the most volatile and toxic of the heavy metals, and the vapors released when chewing or brushing pose a clear and present danger to health — especially your brain and kidneys, as mercury is a neuro- and nephrotoxin. It’s also toxic to your reproductive system. As such, it’s really shocking that mercury amalgam is still being allowed to be placed mere inches from a child’s developing brain.

Charlie Brown, president of Consumers for Dental Choice and the World Alliance for Mercury-Free Dentistry, is a fearless activist for mercury-free dentistry. He’s spent the last two decades tirelessly advocating for the complete elimination of mercury from dentistry across the world. >>>>> Click Here <<<<< Great Headway Being Made Third-Party Payer System Slows Change Demand Your Choice. Caring for Your Oral Microbiome. By Dr. Mercola While often overlooked, your dental health can have a significant impact on your overall health. It's difficult to achieve high-level physical health if your oral health is ignored. Dr.Gerry Curatola, founder of Rejuvenation Dentistry, has over 30 years' experience in biological dentistry.

As Curatola notes, your mouth is your "gateway to total body wellness. " Indeed, thousands of studies have linked oral disease to systemic disease. Inflammation is known to be a disease-causing force leading to most chronic illness, and gum disease and other oral diseases produce chronic low-grade inflammation that can have a deleterious effect on every major organ system in your body. Oral disease can therefore contribute to diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer's, just to name a few.

There's also a 700 percent higher incidence of type 2 diabetes among those with gum disease, courtesy of the inflammatory effects of unbalanced microflora in your mouth. >>>>> Click Here <<<<< Heal Cavities, Gum Disease, Naturally with Organic Oral Care – Toothpaste Recipes Included.

There is a common belief today about cavities that once you have tooth decay, that cavity can NOT be reversed. Then the only solution to oral wellness is to have part of your tooth drilled out and filled with a synthetic material. However, it’s been proven that there are ways to reverse cavities naturally.

In fact, according to a study published in the British Medical Journal, cavities and tooth decay could potentially be reversed with diet. (1) A study was performed on 62 children with cavities, and they were divided into three different diet groups. The results found that Group 1 who had a diet high in grains and phytic acid had an increase in cavities. This study, along with the backing of many doctors and dentists, proves we have been misinformed about what causes cavities and how to reverse cavities naturally. In this article, I am going to go over the causes of tooth decay and how it may be prevented and in many cases even reversed.

Fluoride: Emerging Research may Conflict with Traditional Dentistry Posted on Wed, May 21, 2014 Bob Johnson DMD Traditional dentistry touts the benefits of fluoride to prevent caries/ cavities in your teeth. This has been the conventional wisdom since the 1950’s. As a result dentists and the traditional dental community recommend giving fluoride treatments and to legislate fluoridation of public drinking water.

In recent studies, fluoride has increasingly been shown to be toxic and not as effective at reducing decay as once thought. Fluoride and the Thyroid Fluoride has now been shown to bind with and pull toxic mercury and aluminum into the brain and thyroid. In the thyroid the most important nutrient is Iodine. Make an Educated Health Decision on Fluoride There is still a conflict between this ongoing research surrounding fluoride and the information put out by traditional dental groups. Fluoride - What's the Big Deal? Fluoride - What's the Big Deal?

Posted on Wed, Jul 17, 2013 Mark McClure DDS The dental profession has embraced a full range of fluoride treatments, including topical fluoride, fluoride in tooth paste and fluoridation of the water supply. For many dentists, to be against fluoride is the craziest thing that they have ever heard of- why would anyone be against anything that prevents tooth decay and is so good for you?

But Is This the Real Story About Fluoride? Fluoride actually has two issues, one topical application in the dental office or tooth paste, the other is water fluoridation. Those dentists and their professional organizations (ADA) that proclaim to be science based in their decisions, when they really examine the science find - only sodium fluoride has been studied for safety as a water additive; not Hydrofoluorisilicic acid, which is the waste product of the phosphate fertilizer industry.

The Research on Fluoride. Mercury-Free Dentists: Pioneers for 21st Century Dental Care. By Dr. Mercola Less than a generation ago, only three percent of dentists were mercury-free. Dentistry's best-kept secret was that amalgam fillings had mercury, a neurotoxin that can permanently injure the developing brains of children and fetuses.

The secret was enforced by tyrannical dental boards, which threatened to pull the license (the right to practice) of dentists who spoke out -- and who did in fact pull mercury-free dentists' licenses in California, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Minnesota, and New York. Other mercury-free dentists faced unrelenting pressure from their peers to conform. Yet half of America's dentists have still not changed. Mercury Undercover Despite the progress, we have plenty of work do to.

Avoiding your dentist can save your life. (NaturalNews) The standard practice of dentistry is dangerous to American health. The American Dental Association continues to maintain that mercury fillings and root canals are safe dental procedures, in spite of the overwhelming evidence against these practices. Routine high speed drilling saves dentists time, but also unwittingly destroys teeth, requiring root canals to save them. The fluoride treatments and fluoridated toothpaste recommended to "protect" teeth, actually harm teeth and health. The fact that a nutrient dense, high fat soluble vitamin diet can prevent cavities and avoid the need for orthodontia is unknown for most individuals.

The majority of Americans have no idea how dangerous modern dentistry really is. Dentists aren't bad people, but their training, similar to that received by allopathic physicians, is largely incorrect and health damaging to patients. Dentists routinely use high speed drilling to remove cavities, allowing space for fillings. To learn more:
