My root canal journey

womanachingtoothFor those of you who have had a consultation with me, you know that dental infections are one of the most important considerations in considering the root cause of chronic illness.

I do consider root canals to be one of the things that you need to be concerned about if you want to be truly healthy and have health and longevity. Additionally, I would recommend you have any mercury fillings removed and you may need to have the area where wisdom teeth were extracted checked for cavitations. It does not mean automatic removal of the tooth. It means learning about how to assess the tooth properly and what to do if you are going to keep the tooth as well as what to do if an extraction is appropriate.

What exactly is a root canal and why is it done?

If you have an infection in your tooth that goes on long enough, eventually that infection can spread into the root of the tooth. When the infection becomes severe enough, a dentist will tell you that nothing can further be done for the tooth other than a root canal.

If you have a root canal done, an opening is made in the tooth and the diseased tooth pulp is removed. The roots that have been opened in order to remove the disease-filled pump are filled with gutta-percha material and sealed off with cement. All done, right? If you have had a root canal procedure, your journey may just be starting.

Most dentists will tell you that a root canal procedure is perfectly safe. However, what happens after the root canal is done? Does the tooth remain perfectly sanitized and free of infection? If it becomes infected, will you know? The answer is no, you most likely will never know if a root canal tooth becomes infected. That is because this now “dead” tooth is no longer able to give you feedback (pain) when oxygen flow is lost or when infection sets in. You basically have dead tissue inside the tooth. Can we really expect this not to be a focus on infection in the future? Have dentists, even mainstream dentists, ever had concerns about root canals? The answer is yes, they have. And you have to go way back to see them clearly vocalized, because today’s dentist leaves him or herself open to criticism from the dental board in the state that person practices in.

However, if we go back to 1922 (yes, almost 100 years ago!), we can read about something truly fascinating. This article is from the California State Journal of Medicine and was written by a dentist, Dr. Robert Burns, Jr. I will be referring to excerpts of this fascinating article throughout this post. Dr. Burns information is so startling because of its incredible relevance in the field of medicine and health today.

“Diseased health and their surrounding tissues are often factors in ill health. Physicians frequently fail to utilize this fact in diagnosis and treatment…Back in 1840 when the dentist, Chapin Harris, sought to interest the medical men of Baltimore in the establishment of a course in dentistry in the medical school was flatly rejected.”

Isn’t it amazing to think that there is not more training in dentistry for the general medical doctor? It is not so that they can perform corrective dental treatments. It is to educate them about the intimate connection between their patients’ state of dental health and the health conditions for which they may be seeking medical attention. Today, doctors who seek to truly help their patients must understand that a cavitation from a wisdom tooth extraction, a root canal that could have an active infection unknown to the patient, or any other chronic source of dental infection could be profoundly impacting their patients’ health. The health of the teeth should be a standard part of any medical history taken. However, it is typically not. It is both difficult for the MD to consider the teeth as part of the picture and for the dentist to see that the condition of the mouth also must be considered in the context of all other health conditions. Since this is not likely to happen any time soon, it is good to educate yourself on the connection and to begin to draw your own conclusions!

A required and ethical practice in any form of primary care is called “informed consent”. I am pretty sure you will agree with me after reading this information that the vast majority of dentists and endodontists do not give proper informed consent for a root canal procedure. If they did, I think the majority of people would opt out of them.

However, losing a tooth is not something to take lightly. Dentists certainly can be credited with the good intention of wanting to save a tooth. What we really need is a way we can never have a tooth advance to the point of needing a root canal. This has to do with proper mineralization of the teeth, removal of chronic infections from the body which drain minerals, consuming proper fats, taking care of methylation and detoxification issues and much more.

If you find you are dealing with a chronic tooth infection, try the following first and see if you can begin to reverse the infection:

  • Do oil pulling for 15 minutes per day with cold-pressed sesame oil or coconut oil.
  • In the oil or at a separate time, use 1 drop of Thieves oil massaged over gums for 1-2 minutes.
  • Consider a very diluted MMS mix. If you are not familiar with MMS, please read about it online.
  • Use ozonated olive oil and 1 drop of Thieves oil (from Young Living Oil) in the mouth and gums.
  • Check out our Mafactive Toothpaste with Zeolite
  • Use a cold laser or a scalar laser to help to eliminate the infection.
  • Use systemic immune support like Vitamin C, Echinacea, Burdock and others to keep your immune system strong.

If you can reverse the infection and eliminate the need for the root canal, this is truly the best solution. First, preserve the tooth with the nerve! That means, the infection must be reversed before the “point of no return”. Even if you have been told you have no choice but to do a root canal, you should try the above to see if you can remedy the infection. There is some controversy here, so if you are in pain and feel you can not go further without root canal or extraction, then by all means please respect the signals of pain! At this juncture, you will need to decide. I will have to encourage you at this point to consider extraction. However, let’s continue to understand more about the mouth, the teeth and the nature of infections and what to expect and what to do if you decide to do the extraction.

Dr. Burns continues: “In consideration of oral pathology, particularly with reference to systemic sequelae, I desire to lay special stress upon the fact that a tooth is no more nor less than bone – highly specialized bone – hence possibly a little more prone to disease and that with its investing tissues as it rests in its alveolus, we have represented a joint – no more, no less. An appreciation of this fact may help make clear why one of the most common results of peri-dental infection is an impairment of some other joint in the body.” What does this mean exactly? Do you experience arthritis anywhere in the body. Yep, look no further than the possibility that the dental infections are related to those painful knees.

What Dr. Burns says next is shocking!

The sole blood supply of the bulk of the tooth proper, the dentin, is received by minute arteries passing into the root canal through the apex through which also passes its innervation. The blood is returned through a complete venous system that contains lymphatic tissue. When pulp is removed from a tooth its dentin becomes dead dentin in the same sense that bone in which the corpuscles have been killed is necrosed bone. Thus, when a dentist “kills the nerve” of a tooth, we have a dead tooth.” We have dead tissue in an area where you can no longer sense pain from the infection due to removal of the nerve. And the this dead tissue is in an area highly susceptible to infection. As Dr. Burns stated almost 100 years ago, “These facts explain why 80 percent of dead teeth are infected.” He knew back then that 80% of these procedures would lead to infection. Why is it then, that even today, both doctors and dentists will assure that a root canal is a safe procedure and a viable one for saving your tooth? It just does not match up with what we know about the physiology of the tooth.

Dr. Burns submits to us the following: “When the nerve is killed we have absolutely destroyed beyond recovery all blood and nerve supply to the dentin and the granular layer and we now prevent any possibility any collateral circulation. I propose to you every dead tooth may be a potential source of danger and it in the presence of symptoms should be surgically removed.”

Should all root canals be surgically removed? What should you do if you have a root canal? I want to walk you through the following:

  • What should you do if you have a root canal?
  • What images help you to assess root canals and cavitations (this may happen where an extraction has taken place).
  • Can thermal imaging (thermography) help you in determining if a root canal is an issue or not?
  • If you have an extraction, what should you do next?
  • What are the best materials for an implant?
  • What is the best way to reverse an infection?
  • How and why should you use a laser for your teeth?
  • What really causes the tooth to lose minerals and become susceptible to infection?
  • How can monophosphate be helpful to making the tooth impervious to infections.
  • How do imbalances of the pituitary and the hypothalamus cause your teeth to drink IN infections instead of repelling bacteria?
  • What are some of the most powerful tools and daily regimens in keeping the tooth healthy.
  • Why you should immediately toss ANY toothpaste containing glycerin in the trash NOW!
  • Should you request your dentist use ozone and if so, when and how often?

PEMF Research Exciting News!

Please join me on November 2nd at 5pm for a complete LIVE update on all the research!

Relaxing with PEMF mat
Relaxing with PEMF mat

This past summer, an exciting research study was published in the Journal of Complementary and Alternative  Medicine. It cited the use of PEMF, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy for the improvement in bone density and better regulation of lipids (this means better cholesterol and less need for statins).  The report specifically said, “The results suggest that PEMF stimulation can prevent bone loss and improve lipid metabolism.Here is a link to the study Pulsed EMF Field on Bone formation and Lipid Metabolism.

Join me on November 2nd at 5pm Pacific for the latest research in PEMF technology!

More about the best proprietary wave and optimal frequency in PEMF!

What is PEMF?

PEMF stands for pulsed electromagnetic field therapy. These fields are on the ELF spectrum (extremely low frequency). This is the application of a specific frequency, on a particular wave, that can impact the human energy field and body through a process called resonance. This means that when you are close to a PEMF mat (laying on the mat or sitting on the mat), the specific therapeutic frequencies can impact you in a very positive way. It is as simple as that. All you need to do is receive this frequency!

Frequency Wave
Frequency Wave

More about the best proprietary wave and optimal frequency in PEMF!

What is the best frequency?

It turns out very smallest vessels of the body, called the capillaries, have their very own healthy frequency! The capillary system in the body comprises over 80% of the entire circulatory system of the body! What happens when we don’t have good circulation? We can end up with conditions like Alzheimer’s, heart disease, blood pressure, decreased mental clarity and much more! For example, the natural frequency of the earth is 7.83 Hz. This is also known as the Schumann resonance. The coherent, optimal frequency of the capillary? That would be 10Hz! Find a PEMF mat that produces 10Hz and you are on to something. It turns out that the proper application of the 10Hz frequency (with a strategically designed carrier wave!) can switch on a capillary that has switched off! Yes, read that again! A capillary that is experiencing stasis, that has been switched off for some reason, can become enlivened once again with the proper application of the 10Hz frequency.

More about the best proprietary wave and optimal frequency in PEMF!

What could this mean?

This is exciting beyond comprehension! Opening up circulation in the smallest vessels of the body is like being given new life! After all the capillaries are designed to deliver oxygen and nutrition to our precious cells! If there is no movement of this precious nutrition due to defunct capillaries, it doesn’t take much to realize that the cells will begin to die! So, revitalizing and optimizing the functioning of capillaries is one of the keys to longevity!

Improved circulation
Improved circulation

What type of PEMF mat should I use?

The only PEMF mat that I use personally and recommend in my practice is the Bemer mat. This mat has a very special propriety carrier wave that brings your capillaries that precious 10Hz frequency. It does that and something even better. Every few seconds, the Bemer mat also generates a very brief 30 Hz frequency. This alternation of the longer 10Hz frequency and brief 30 Hz frequency causes the capillaries to open up more efficiently.

More about the best proprietary wave and optimal frequency in PEMF!

What would I experience as a result of this advanced technology?

When your circulation opens up, you could reasonable expect to experience less pain (“Pain is your body’s request for oxygen.”), more mental clarity, lower blood pressure, improved mood, deeper quality of sleep and much more. None of these are guaranteed effects, but they are certainly my experience and the experience of my patients.

Families use the Bemer!
Families use the Bemer!

Does using the Bemer take alot of time?

Not at all! The most effective way to use a Bemer is to use it twice a day for just 8 minutes per day! I personally keep my mat near the bed and use it first thing in the morning and last thing before bedtime.

How  can I find out more?

Please join me on Wednesday, November at 5pm for a free webinar with the latest research! Register here. You can also read more about the Bemer mat here. If you sign up for the class, you will receive the recording automatically in case you miss the live session!

Have you done any webinars before this that I can watch right now?

What’s so great about CBD Oil?

cbdchemistryIs this another form of wacky weed? Nope. CBD Oil or cannabidiol oil may be one constituent of Cannabis Sativa, but it is not the psychoactive one. That’s theTHC. Can you get CBD without THC? Yes, you can. This is what you can derive from the hemp plant. In the U.S., though you would not be able to grow your own hemp, it is perfectly legal to purchase it and to take CBD oil.

Why would I be interested in CBD? 

CDB, or cannabadiol oil is a powerful substance. It is not a psychoactive substance and it is not addictive. You can also get CBD in the marijuana plant and derive benefit from it with a very low percentage of THC. Much of this production is happening now because of the legalization of pot in several states. This article, however, will deal only with CBD derived from hemp.

So, CBD is a very powerful positive force for good. My personal experience with taking CBD is that it intuitively seems to activate the pineal. There is no research on this so far, just a feeling that I felt. I also felt sharper and calmer upon taking it. So, what is the science on this, then? I want to discuss some of the research that has been done so far. The effects include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Decreased levels of anxiety and regulation of the hippocampus.
  • Regulation of insulin, ghrelin and leptin levels (which can be helpful for weight loss).
  • Reduced levels of inflammation in the body, and typically as a result less pain.
  • Healing of the gut, including research that shows considerable improvement in irritable bowel disease.
  • Positive effects on the brain in a variety of ways. One of the known positive effects is the reduction of seizures which has successfully helped epileptics and has been one of the leading uses of CBD derived from hemp.
  • It may have profound effects on cancer, although those have not yet been researched extensively. We do know that CBD seems to have a positive impact on the immune system including the improvement in T Helper cells and cells that generally help to destroy cancer cells (like NK cells).
  • Epileptics are one of the leading groups using and benefitting from CBD oil. This tells us that CBD probably has a calming or modulating effect on the electrical systems of the brain.

I remember being very worried about that fly on the wall…

When you think of your experience with pot, or the stereotypical experience, you can imagine folks to have their anxiety (paranoia even!) ramped up. Some people are afraid to smoke pot for this very reason! However, it is the action of THC to increase brain chemicals that could cause this increased feeling of anxiety. CBD has the opposite effect. It can be very soothing and calming.cbdpicture

A 2013 study on stress and CBD found the following: activation of the cannabinoid receptor with CBD helped to reduce the effects of stress on the brain. It is this repeated stress on the brain that can cause physiological changes (to the hippocampus and the amygdala) that can lead to anxiety and depression. Specifically, the study found that, “CBD…significantly reduced expression of glucocorticoid receptors in the amygdala and hippocampus…Our findings suggest that cannabinoid receptor activation could represent a novel approach to the treatment of cognitive deficits that accompany a variety of stress related…disorders.” (Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology, July 2013).

To really understand the impact of CBD, it is essential to understand something called the endocannabanoid system. This is a group of receptors that was literally named as such because of their effect on the ECB receptors in the brain. This system plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, our mood and how we experience the world around us. The simple truth is that CBD oil helps to regulate these receptors in a very positive way. Because CBD from hemp has no psychoactive (THC) side, the benefits are positive and the substance is not addictive.

CBD can profoundly modulate your immune system. This is something we will all find very helpful in an age where both chronic infections and autoimmune disease are concerns for many people. In the Journal of Leukocyte Biology, it was reported that the EDC receptors, when stimulated by CBD, may help to regulate T Helper cells and inflammatory cytokines.

How can you start using CBD oil? I personally recommend the resinous form of CBD over pills or tinctures. I find that these have the best pricing for the amount of CBD you receive and the least amount of filler. You pay for the CBD and that’s it! You can take as little as 10mg per day. That is just a very small amount, like a dab on your finger.

The Kuberakolam – Magnet for Prosperity

The Kuberakolam is a numerical sequence. It is based on the Hindu god, Kubera, the god of wealth. The kuberakolam is typically drawn with rice flour on the floors of houses in South India (the kolam is a sacred form of painting using rice flour). It is meant to bring good energy into the home and to welcome abundance. Here it is just meaning this particular form of the drawing, shown below.

Aligned Kuberakolam
Aligned Kuberakolam

The magic numbers, in their particular arrangement and in 3 rows and 3 columns are known as the magic square. This order and arrangement creates a frequency. That frequency draws prosperity, good fortune and financial success. Each row and each column (up, down and the main diagnonals) all add up to 72. This is a sacred number and there is a coherence to the entire square in the 72 being represented along all of these lines.

Viewing the magic square and meditating on the numbers is what connects you to the energy of prosperity. I have taken the Kubera number sequence and superimposed in on Frank Chester’s chestahedron. The chestahedron is a represntation of the energy that permeates the heart. It is a vortex. There is a similar vortex giving power to the left ventricle of the heart. Combine the connection with, and clearing of, the heart with the desire to manifest prosperity. The result: manifestation that is in alignment with your highest self. Try meditating on this Kuberakolam each morning as you review or focus on your daily goals, aspirations and intentions.

Kubera also has some specific mantras. Reciting these mantras also are powerful sacred sounds that attract money, abundance, good fortune and success.

Please share your comments below about how you feel after meditating of focusing on the Kuberakolam, the chestahedron sacred geometrical shape or the Kubera Prosperity Mantras. Here’s to your success and abundance!
