It’s very difficult to achieve high-level physical health if your dental health isn’t effectively addressed. I’ve been involved with alternatives to regular dentistry for quite some time. I think many people fail to appreciate how important dentistry is to our total health.
Most tend to separate these two components, but both need to be considered as working in tandem.
Contrary to conventional dentistry, minimally invasive dentistry, like biological dentistry, is not about “drilling and filling;” creating an endless loop of revisits and retreating the same tooth again and again.

Few people are aware that auto-immune disease, chronic illnesses, and acute illnesses may be related to mercury poisoning from dental fillings or unresolved infection involving a root canal or extraction. In our society, conventional medicine and conventional dentistry both separate the mouth from the rest of the body, Continue reading

A new technique called oil pulling can keep your mind and body healthy
The headlines in the newspaper could have read “Man Dies of Toothache.” As unlikely as this may sound, it is true. Boyd (not his real name) was a healthy 54-year old. His only complaint was the sudden appearance of a toothache. The dentist identified the problem as an abscess-an infection near the base of the tooth. The tooth was salvageable, so it was not extracted, and the infection was scraped out of the gum tissue and drained.
That evening Boyd experienced shaking chills and fever. He took an aspirin and felt better the next day. Fourteen days later he developed a severe headache with involuntary twitching of the muscles on the left side of his face and neck. He was taken to the hospital. A CT scan revealed a mass in the frontal lobe of his brain, which was diagnosed as a brain abscess. He was given massive doses of antibiotics and underwent surgery to drain the infection.
Boyd seemed to improve immediately after the surgery. Six days later, however, he became noticeably disoriented and developed swelling on his head. A CT scan revealed the recurrence of the brain abscess. He was given more antibiotics and underwent a second surgery to drain the pus and remove infected tissue including part of his skull.

The next major advance in health will be determined by what people are willing to do for themselves. However, willingness is only part of the equation-the other is knowing what to do. In my book Never Be Sick Again, I outlined a new model of health based on the revolutionary concept of one disease. As varied and complex as “diseases” appear to be, all disease is the result of malfunctioning cells. Cellular malfunction is then the one disease. Modern medicine believes there are thousands of diseases, but viewing all diseases as one presents a profound opportunity-the opportunity to take the mystery out of disease and to gain power over it.
The enormous pandemic of chronic and degenerative disease sweeping the world today is characterized by complex neuro-immuno-hormonal-gastrointestinal dysfunction. Complexity aside, all disease occurs at the molecular and cellular level, and we now know that virtually all disease has common causes and common solutions.
There is only one disease and there are only two causes of disease: deficiency and toxicity. Cells lacking what they need or exposed to something harmful will malfunction. Unless cells malfunction, there can be no disease. The thousands of different diseases we experience are merely the effects of thousands of combinations of deficiencies and toxicities acting through a combination of inherited genes, the environment, and our beliefs, thoughts, and emotions. Preventing or reversing disease is about preventing and reversing cellular malfunction. Continue reading
A Brief Paper Summarizing Some Of The Difficulties Associated With The Treatment Of Dead Teeth
Prepared by Robert Gammal BDS (February 1997)
The aim of Root Canal Therapy is to ‘save’ a tooth which has become infected or dead, in an attempt to make it functional and pain free.
After scraping out the inside of the tooth the dentist will attempt to disinfect the tooth and the canals to eliminate any source of infection. The canal is then filled with a combination of cement and Gutta Percha in an attempt to completely occlude these canals. This is supposedly to prevent any microorganisms from entering the tooth either through the crown or the root. Continue reading
By George E. Meinig, DDS, FACD
[Editor’s Note: Dr. Meinig’s Root Canal Cover-Up describes the extensive and meticulous root canal research of Dr. Weston A. Price, carried out over a period of 25 years. Originally published in two massive volumes, totaling 1174 pages, Price’s work remained unknown to the world until Dr. Meinig’s Root Canal Cover-Up translated Price’s scientific findings into layman’s terms. The following report describes Price’s findings on root canals, and details Dr. Meinig’s efforts to make them known to the public.] Continue reading
Part 1 of 3
By Dr. James Howenstine, MD.

Many chronic diseases, perhaps most, are a result of root canal surgery. Approximately 20,000,000 root canal operations are performed annually in the United States. Nearly every dentist is oblivious to the serious health risks this operation produces.
Brilliant dentist, Dr. Weston A. Price, did monumental research about dental conditions. His work took him around the world where he studied the teeth, diets and bones of native populations living without the benefit of "modern food." He learned that Continue reading
