by Maya Nicole Baylac
Recommended Daily Dental Care
Avoid toothpaste containing methyl lauryl sulfate, fluorine or baking soda. Fluorine may affect the thyroid in the same way as chlorine does by displacing the iodine atom in the formation of thyroxine, the thyroid hormone.
Baking soda, the common name for sodium bicarbonate is a sodium compound which is prohibited during the Gerson Therapy .
Root canals have shown to weaken the immune system and slow down or even prevent healing from degenerative illnesses. Root canals create a chronic local infection with bacteria that may migrate, much like cancer cells, to other parts of the body and may infect vital organs such as the heart, kidneys, joints, nervous system, brain and eyes. To maximize your chances of success with any detoxification program you should have your root canals removed. Some dentist will try to replace the old material by a new material that is supposed to be less toxic. The issue is not only the toxicity of the material used to fill the dead space but the dead root itself. A bridge is today most healthy way to replace the root canal. Implants are not recommended.
The guidelines for removal of the root canals depend on your current state of health. If you feel weak, we will wait until you feel stronger. If you feel strong we will go ahead and advise to remove the root canal as soon as possible.
Silver Mercury amalgam fillings
The Scientific facts
Mercury is highly toxic heavy metal more so than lead, cadmium or arsenic. Methylmercury and mercury vapors are the most toxic forms. Dental amalgams are approximately 50% mercury. One average size amalgam filling contains about 780 milligrams of mercury, which is enough to exceed the USEPA non-dietary Mercury Intake Standard for over 100 years. Mercury is not locked into the amalgam and exposure increases with chewing, brushing or heat. It takes 90 minutes for the amount released to come back down to the original levels. Mercury vapors enter the cells very easily and penetrate the blood brain barrier and the placental membrane. It takes the body 30 to 70 days to eliminate an average dose inhaled in one day.
Human autopsies have shown that dental amalgam mercury builds up with time.
Studies show that mercury damages the brain and nervous system, the thyroid, pituitary and adrenal glands, the heart and lungs, as well as hormones and enzymes. It is a very potent suppressor of the immune system and is known to damage the brain and nervous system of unborn babies.
Mercury when placed in the teeth generate an electrical current. The health effects of these currents are as yet unknown.
The American Dental Association, OSHA and the EPA, have declared leftover scrap dental amalgam to be a toxic hazard to dental personnel, to the dental office and to the environment. However they do not recognize these amalgam to be a potential health problem when they are lodged in the teeth of individuals. Therefore, dentists and doctors do not take into account the health problems caused by mercury.
Mercury also accumulates in fish. The larger the fish the more mercury it concentrates. Tuna contains the largest amounts.
Symptoms of mercury toxicity
Mercury toxicity affects most systems:
Silver Amalgam Mercury Fillings Removal|
It is important to remove these amalgams. However, it has been shown that mercury toxicity increases at the moment of removal Therefore,it is recommended to remove the amalgams when you are feeling strong. To avoid toxic overload, only remove one or two at the same time.
To accelerate elimination of mercury from the tissues chelation may be performed.
Dental work is done under local anesthesia by the means of a painkiller such as xylocaine compounded with epinephrine. The usual dose of 2 cc is very toxic and unnecessary for someone with a clean and sensitive system.
The guideline consist of using only 1/3 of the average dose and no epinephrine
To help with the elimination of the toxic material it is recommended to take 5000 mg of vitamin C daily for a period of 5 days preceding the anesthesia and during the treatment.
