As you journey through each of the 7 Essentials™, you will learn about Essential # 5 – Embrace Biological Dentistry. Essential #5 will teach you about the obvious connections between root canals, mercury fillings, periodontal disease and your health. In fact, you may have already met with a biological dentist to have your root canals and mercury fillings addressed.
What you may not know, however, is that there are also some “hidden culprits” inside your mouth that can lead to serious illness, including cancer, too They are hidden because they often don’t hurt, can’t be seen and don’t always accompany other major sources of infection (although sometimes they do). I am talking about dental cavitations.
I personally discovered cavitations when I was on my healing journey over 10 years ago. I discovered that I had a cavitation in my lefty lower jaw, sitting on the meridian that connected to my left breast! Coincidence you may say?
Looking for an alternative to toothpastes loaded with sulfates and other toxic ingredients such as fluoride? Mainstream science has now fully recognized the ‘miracle’ powers of coconut oil to not only combat tooth decay and drastically improve overall mouth health, but also to specifically crush a yeast known as candida albicans that can lead to deadly infections. This ‘news’ likely comes as nothing more than further confirmation for many, as natural health practicioners have been recommending coconut oil for years. Continue reading
When a person in the United States has a toothache, due to an infection in the tooth, rather than cure the infection with 3 percent food grade hydrogen peroxide, dentists almost always kill the tooth. They will typically drill out the insides of the tooth and fill the tooth with metal rods.
This is called a “root canal.” Root canals are a safe haven for microbes. Because no blood reaches the inside of the tooth, the immune system cannot kill any microbes inside the dead tooth. Continue reading
Treating cavities with standard dental fillings may soon be a thing of the past, thanks to new research showing that damaged teeth have a natural ability to heal on their own. Researchers from England have shown in new animal trials that, when exposed to a substance known to aid in mineral delivery and dentine formation, tooth cavities will naturally regenerate and seal themselves without the need for mercury-based amalgam, porcelain, cement, or some other synthetic material.

Did you know that there are over 700 different strains of bacteria that could potentially call your mouth their home? Thankfully, the average person only houses around 50 to 75 of them and only a few of these strains would be considered “bad.” The overabundance of those harmful bacteria can do more than harm your teeth and gums.
In fact, several research studies conducted over the last decade have made the connection between periodontal disease (periodontitis and chronic inflammatory gum disease are other names it goes by) and specific kinds of cancer, including Breast Cancer.
Dentists everywhere perform them as a way of removing potentially life-threatening infections from their patients’ teeth. But root canals aren’t the surefire fix that many people think they are, as they not only cause many of the same infections that they supposedly remedy, but research shows that they also significantly increase one’s risk of developing cancer later in life.

Twice daily scrub reduces bacteria linked to bowel tumours
Brushing your teeth regularly could help to prevent bowel cancer, a study suggests.
This is because the mouth bacteria that cause bleeding gums can travel via the blood to the bowel where they could trigger cancer or worsen existing tumours.
The bug fusobacterium has been found to be hundreds of times more common in cancerous tumours than in normal cells.
Now researchers have found that the microbes can make pre-cancerous growths in the bowel turn cancerous. They can also make any existing tumours in the bowel grow larger. Continue reading
Six biohazard metals lurking inside your mouth
It’s no secret that conventional medicine is a corrupt institution owned by Big Pharma, which pumps out a steady stream of medications with their own dangerous side-effects. What is less known is that conventional density is just as bad as the care and treatment patients receive in typical hospitals. Continue reading
Mercury constitutes 50 per cent of silver fillings and can degrade and cause heavy metal poisoning over time – though they are still considered save by the American Dental Association
She says she first remembers developing a myriad of medical problems in grade school, but no one seemed to know why. The last thing the medical/dental community thought was that her problems could ever have been caused by her fillings.
As a young girl, Diane Meyer says she got amalgam “silver fillings” in her teeth that contained a combination of elements, but which were filled about 50 percent with mercury. It was the filling of choice back then and remained the filling of choice for decades thereafter. Continue reading
Is your mouth making you sick?
You can tell a lot about a person’s health by the condition of their mouth. It’s almost impossible to have a sick body and a healthy mouth or to have a healthy body and a sick mouth. You can, however, have a sick mouth and not know it. Your mercury filling can be leeching mercury particles or mercury vapor that is poisoning your tissues. Your root canal or your jawbone can be oozing potent toxins, even though you feel no pain.
Toothache pain can be extremely distracting and often become a sufferer’s sole area of focus. The time between experiencing toothache pain and seeing an emergency dentist can be excruciating. Tooth pain happens when the nerve is inflamed. Generally this occurs due to compromised enamel which is allowing material to enter directly into the pulp. Here are 12 home remedies for toothache pain. Continue reading
Your toothbrush could warn you about the onset of diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s, technologists have said.
Tiny microchips – known as nanopore sequencers – can decode DNA into a digital format that can then be assessed against genetic markers that are known to indicate disease.
This is seen as a watershed in science and could lead to a revolution in health care. Continue reading
Author reveals how she was poisoned by her mercury-based fillings
A 44-year-old New York woman went years fearing she was suffering from an autoimmune disorder before she discovered it was the mercury in her silver fillings that was making her sick.
Doctors were at a loss when Alethea Black first started noticing a tickling in her leg and numbness in her left pinky in 2010 – and the symptoms only got worse over the next two years.
After reading an article on the dangers of silver fillings, the Dutchess County native had the cavity fillers removed and has been symptom-free ever since.
Black first noticed something was wrong while taking her dog for a walk in October 2010. She describes what felt like a spider crawling up her leg, but looked down and saw nothing.
‘I would look under my jeans and there would be no spider,’ she told Cosmopolitan magazine. ‘Then I would feel it again.’ Continue reading
It’s no big secret that mercury is highly poisonous, and that exposure to mercury should be avoided at all costs. Why, then, do dentists keep putting mercury fillings in their patient’s teeth?
Mercury fillings – sometimes called “silver fillings,” “metal fillings” or “amalgam fillings” – are incredibly toxic. Mercury fillings continuously emit mercury vapor, which is absorbed into the body in small amounts. But those “small amounts” can really add up when you have fillings in your mouth leeching mercury vapor into your body every day for one, five, twenty or even fifty years! Continue reading
A chemical that has been linked to cancer cell growth is being used by millions of Americans in toothpaste every day, it has emerged.
The company behind Colgate Total insists that triclosan, which it uses to stave off gum disease, is safe to use because the toothpaste was approved in 1997 by the Food and Drug Administration.
But the toxicology documents used by the FDA to approve the toothpaste were only released early this year after a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit last year – and reveal the agency relied upon company-backed science to reach its conclusion, Bloomberg News reported.
The 35-page report reveals the FDA had concerns that triclosan could increase the risk of cancer – but Colgate said the chemical was only problematic in large doses. Continue reading
