ALTERNATIVES TO MERCURY-AMALGAM FILLINGS

.

.

Alternatives to mercury fillings are accessible, affordable and applicable!

.

.

If you want your mercury fillings removed you certainly don´t want another toxic material being put in your teeth instead.

.

There are dental filling materials that have a very small potential of harming your health.

.

Composites also called “white fillings” are such an alternative. Especially if they are free of Bisphenol A, a softener that has been found to cause adverse health reactions such as allergies, breast cancer, obesity and early onset of puberty.

.

In October 2010 Canada has declared Bisphenol A a toxic chemical!

.

For bigger restorations Polyceramic / Fibrecor is a good choice as it combines excellent aesthetics with optimal biocompatibility.

.

.

I recommend metal-free options in all forms of restorations

.

.

To quote Vera Stejskal, developer of the MELISA-Test: “Only robots should have metal spare parts”

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

.

.

.

What is the common therapy for a dead or gangrenous finger or toe?

.

It would be removed. No question asked.

No one would start fiddling around with the nerves, veins or arteries inside.  A surgeon would just cut it off.

.

Hopefully patient and health professionals involved will afterwards address the underlying cause,s.

.

.

Why root canal treatments are performed

.

 

If the nerve in your tooth is infected, a root canal treatment is often recommended.  This is a non-surgical dental procedure to save extracting the tooth. The treatment consists of removing the infected pulp, cleaning the root channel and sealing it. The treatment is not considered painful but can sometimes be.

.

Although Root Canal treatments are very popular in dentistry, the more you will learn about them, the more you realise that they are often no more than a quick fix approach. The end result could well be worse than the original problem.

.

A Clinic in Switzerland recently found that of the last 150 breast cancer patients treated in this clinic 147 of them (98%) had one or more root canal treated teeth on the same meridian as the original breast cancer tumour.

WHAT TO DO?

 

One could say there is no perfect solution in regards of root canal treatments  because either you loose a tooth or you may threaten your health. Hence it is down to the individual situation – What medical problems do you suffer from – how old are you – what kind of technique is the dentist able to use, and so forth.

.

Get all the information you can get whether from your dentist, internet or second opinion . You really need to understand what a root canal treatment is and all the consequences of having a root canal treatment done or the tooth extracted!

CAVITATION The Hidden Problem in Your Jaw

.

Bob Jones was wheelchair-bound because of a debilitating illness and embarked on a journey to restore his health.

One of the most significant aspects of his recovery was a surgical intervention to his jaw bone to eliminate the infections located there.

After his recovery he went on to develop a device to accurately detect the presence of toxic ‘holes’’ all over the body, the Cavitat.

.

.

A Cavitation is a hollow area in the bones that develops if the blood supply to the bone is deprived. The bone dies and a hole develops to which anaerobic bacteria migrate.

The toxic waste material produced by these bacteria is permanently being released into your body.

Cavitations in the jaw usually occur as a result of infections or trauma after tooth extraction.

Cavitations are especially vulnerable to infection from bacteria of gum disease and tooth decay.

Unfortunately cavitations cannot easily be diagnosed by conventional dental X-rays. The method to diagnose a cavitation is by the above mentioned CAVITAT, an ultra sound device, that needs to be read in conjunction with a Panorama X-ray.

.

.

If a local anaesthetics doesn´t work, a reason could be a Cavitation in this area, because the infection in the Cavitation could neutralise the local anaesthetic.

.

Antibiotics do not work on cavitations because no blood is circulating within the lesion hence no medication will ever reach the affected area.

.

The suggested treatment for a Cavitation is surgery to scrape the bone clean, remove dead bone tissue, bringing the bone back to a living structure by making it bleed and combining this with some further local and systemic treatment.

.

Tongue Piercing

.

.

.

PIERCING is cool for teenagers,

.

especially if their parents become upset by it.

.

.

.

.

Thousands of tongue piercings are carried out without any problems.

.

There are some unfortunate and extreme cases reported such as the one of an 18 year old friend of a friend´s son who died after piercing due to septicemia.

.

You may as well experience pain, temporarily impaired speech, loss of taste and numbness.

.

Of all the problems encountered, infection is the most dangerous.

.

.

Just take into account the potential downsides of the procedure. Do your homework and look for a piercing professional.

.

.

The primary function of your tongue is for talking, eating, chewing and swallowing.

.

If you carry out these activities with metal or any other form of jewellery on your tongue, you could easily fracture or chip surrounding tooth enamel.

This may also increase the long term risk of periodontal problems caused by the barbell metal rubbing against the gums.

Barbells have even been known to become loose or unscrewed only to be swallowed or even end up in the lung.

.

.

Orthodontics

.

.

.

“Straight teeth” is what most people think of orthodontic treatment but crooked teeth are just a symptom of a bodily imbalance that appears in the jaw. And fixed brackets are simply symptomatic treatments.

.

.

.

.

An orthodontist looks at the position of the lower jaw in relation to the upper jaw, the head and vertebrae of the neck and spine as well as the hips and legs.

.

Any imbalance here may be causing problems with breathing, snoring and sleep apnoea, post nasal drip and even seemingly unrelated conditions such as bed wetting, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Immune Deficiency Syndrome and problems with the eyes and ears.

.

It is important to start (holistic/functional) treatment at an early age to work with teeth and jaw as they develop. This way you provide the opportunity for a gentle approach to work in conjunction with the whole body.

.

Functional Orthodontics helps to eliminate blockages, loosen rigidity, straighten up what is bent and transforms disharmony into harmony. It also helps to open up the respiratory airways, straighten the spine and increase of blood flow and activation of lymphatic drainage.

.

.

.

.

 

Every treatment is a partnership between the orthodontist and the child/parent; each has a specific and important role to play during the treatment program.

.

The role of the orthodontist is to correctly define the problem and to achieve the desired result using as little force as possible.  The child and the parent then need to work together to wear the braces and perform the recommended exercises.

.

To make orthodontic treatment a success it is useful to support it with other therapies such as Lymphatic drainage, Cranio-Sacral therapy, Myofunctional therapy (to overcome improper tongue movements), Magnetic field therapy (to stimulate the growth of bone), Homeopathy and sometimes even Psychotherapy has proven beneficial.

CranioSacral Therapy

.

.

.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy is an excellent way to support an orthodontic treatment as it takes the stress out of the “system” while having jaws expanded or teeth moved.

.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy is a specific and very gentle kind of treatment that helps release stresses and tensions throughout the body, from head to toes addressing a wide range of conditions for people of all ages.
.

.

.

.
The task of an Osteopath is to restore the structure and function of the body to a state of balance, at the same time giving the client recommendations on how to maintain this state.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy aims to treat the whole person and not just the condition. A treatment can be extremely effective at relieving symptoms for a very wide range of situations including joint pains, back and neck pain, migraines, sinus conditions, headaches, sports injuries, stress, recurrent infections, digestive problems and menstrual pains.

.

.

.

.
Newborns especially benefit from a treatment as a result of the trauma, pressures and contortions received during the birth process. In babies many problems such as crying, colic, sleeping and feeding difficulties can be helped.
.

.

.

Physical or emotional stresses causes the body to tighten up. The recurrence of such strains can leave a lasting effect, restricting the body’s free movement, making it more and more difficult to cope with accumulated stresses. As a result symptoms may develop.

.

.

Tongue Diagnostic

.

.

.

Tongue Diagnostics has similarities to Reflexology in that different zones of the tongue represent different organs of the body.

The difference however is that tongue analysis is just a diagnostic tool and the method of restoring health to the body is not carried out on the tongue.

.

.

.

.

The tongue is often called the ‘show case’ of the gastrointestinal tract. Tongue diagnosis is an analysis of the condition of the tongue.

Even mainstream medicine accepts and states that inner illnesses have an influence on the tongue.

School medicine recognises that changes in the tongue may be due to illnesses such as syphilis, tuberculosis, Candida, Down-Syndrome, lack of vitamins and progressed diseases of the blood.

.

.

.

.

Everyone knows from their own personal experience that gastrointestinal problems cause coating on the tongue.

Clinical diagnostics is only able to show diseases if pathological changes are already present; with Tongue Diagnostics a therapist is able to already detect first or minor signs of health changes still to come.

Tongue diagnosis can therefore be extremely valuable for any dentist to establish the condition of his patients overall health.

.

.

As with tongue diagnosis there is a “map” of the body represented on the tongue as well as on the ear, hand, foot, face and eyes.

.

The image below shows the “map” of the body represented on the  tongue.

Homeopathy

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Homeopathy was developed in the 18th century by German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843).

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.
Homeopathy works with the body’s own recovery systems to help the person get well naturally.

.

.

.

.
.

In homeopathic theory, disease is seen as originating not originally because of pathogens like viruses or bacteria, but because of a disruption in the “vital force” or life energy of the individual.

Therefore, in homeopathic theory, colloidal silver or antibiotics or hot herbal compresses or whatever you use to “kill germs” will not cure you.
.

.

.

.

.
Homeopathic remedies help your body correct the underlying reason,s for the disease. So rather than treating the symptoms as “modern western” medicine does, it treats the person.

.
Today dental practice has become very high-tech and invasive. In some ways working against the body.
Using homeopathy, dentists are able to perform much more gentle treatment, creating much less anxiety and trauma in the process.
.

.

.

.
Homeopathy will also aid the recovery process, reducing the intensity, and length of any swelling, bleeding or discomfort you may feel.
.

.

.

On the HISTORY of Homeopathy:

All people have inherited weaknesses and susceptibilities with which they are born. In Hahnemann´s theory these are known as “miasms.” Some of these predispositions are genetic tendencies to certain conditions such as hip dysplasia or allergies. Some are behavioural; others are neurological.
Miasms can also be contracted after birth, from infectious diseases, suppressive treatments, and other causes.
.

.

.
One child might be born who is sensitive to vaccines, while another has no reaction from them, but may be unable to tolerate certain foods, or pollens, or perhaps has an inherited weakness in his eyes.
.

.

.

.
In the book you´ll discover a broad variety of homeopathic remedies (more than five pages) for use in dentistry and way beyond. You´ll also find different was to practice homeopathy ….

Chewing and Your Bite

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Digestion starts with chewing properly

.

.

.

.

When food enters your mouth and you start chewing, this stimulates the release of pancreatic hormones and triggers other digestive organs to produce saliva.

.

.

.

.

.

Saliva contains its own digestive enzymes, so the more you chew, the more time these enzymes have to work while the food is still in your mouth. This makes digesting less stressful for your stomach and small intestines.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.
Austrian physician Franz Xaver Mayr showed that people’s digestive systems deteriorate when they eat too fast, too much, too often and too unhealthy.

He developed a diagnostic and therapeutic system to help restore the health of the intestines and thus of the entire organism.

He was a great believer that poor nutrition is reflected in the state of the teeth and gums and that ‘death beg
.

.

Therefore I recommend you eat slowly and chew every single bite twenty two times!

.

.

.

.

Chewing gum fools your brain and digestive organs into believing you’re eating food. Your stomach, pancreas, and other digestive organs prepare themselves to process food.

As chewing gum is not food, the production of digestive enzymes isn’t required. Instead, the overflow of unused digestive enzymes could start ‘attacking’ the walls of your intestines.

.

.

.

.

.
The parts of your body that contribute to you being able to chew, breath, and swallow properly as well as keeping your posture stable involve your teeth, gums, jaws, supporting bones, muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons. For the whole system to function properly, every single part of this system must function properly.

It is important to understand what an important part of the skeletal system the teeth are. The way your top and bottom teeth fit together is crucial for the balance of your whole body and is a determining factor of the correct posture of your head.

.

.

.

.

.

If you have a skeletal posture imbalance your body will have created patterns that compensate either up from your feet  or down from the head.
.

.

For example if your jaw isn´t in the correct position it may cause your head to be slightly imbalanced on the neck. All the vertebrae and muscles that control them have to compensate. This can manifest as neck aches, head aches, back and shoulder pain, misaligned hips and uneven leg length.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

In the book you will also discover how your Breathing Patterns can affect your dental health, the dangers of snoring and what a comprehensive dental check up should include.

.

.

.

.

.

Snoring can Kill you

.

.

.

.

.

.

Your Breathing Patterns can Affect

Your Dental Health

.

.

.

.

.
Proper breathing is crucial to your health; the way you breath has an impact on everything you do. No-one ever taught you to breathe; as a baby you just did it. The bad breathing habits started to develop as you grew older but you’re unlikely to have noticed them.
.

.

.

.

.

.

The proper function of your airways is vital for proper development of the teeth and jaws. Therefore the roof of your mouth – which is the floor of your nose -should be wide and low arched.

.

.

.
If it is narrow and high arched the nasal cavity will be small and often causes a deviated septum hence reducing the airway for the air to pass through when you are breathing.

.

.

.
.

By improving your breathing you can reduce minor problems that can affect your physiology. These include responses to allergens, androgen functioning, structure and strength.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Snoring Can Kill you

.

.

.

.

Breathing problems affect sleeping patterns. This has a profound influence on the human body because breathing problems are a form of stress that interferes with the body’s ability to handle other physiological and psychological stresses in life.
.

.

If you cannot breathe properly

you cannot think properly.

.

.

.

.

Snoring isn´t just a social problem; it is also a health issue for the snorer. The problem snorer’s face is that when they sleep, their body is resting and regenerating and therefore needs sufficient supply of oxygen. But with snoring the supply of oxygen is reduced, impacting that rest and regeneration.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Sleep apnoea is when your breathing stops for a few seconds. This can be extremely dangerous and occasionally fatal if not addressed correctly.

.
