Are your Root Canals causing health problems?

Root canals are proving to be the source of many health problems, but one hears little about it from dentists, rather from practitioners in the alternate and complementary health field. It is indeed true that here in America dentists are in great danger of having their licenses revoked by the dental board in their state for suggesting that root-canalled teeth be pulled, or for even suggesting that mercury fillings be replaced. But, a vast amount of research has recently come to light that brings up questions about the safety of the root canal procedure.

Dr. Weston Price, director of research at the American Dental Association for 14 years, published many articles with regard to his 25 years of research into the dangers of root canals. Although these articles were published back in the 1920s, his work has been compiled and published again by one of the founding member of the American Association of Endodontists, Dr. George Meinig. This excellent book is entitled Root Canal Cover-Up. The research shows how bacteria become trapped in the tubules of the root-canalled tooth. The tooth is dead, its nerve removed, and this lifeless area can put up no immune response to eradicate the problem. Even antibiotics cannot reach into these tubules, which become a source of infection for the entire body. Dr. Price’s research clearly shows that systemic illnesses can occur following root canal procedures. One can also find a connection between more specific, localized pain, and a problem root-canalled tooth. It is helpful to utilize the standard teeth-to-organ chart, which shows the connection between specific teeth and a corresponding organ, according to acupuncture meridians. For example, a recent patient of mine gained a dramatic improvement in shoulder and arm pain and stiffness when she had a root-canalled premolar pulled. The effect was instant, she recalled. Five hours after the extraction she noticed all the pain had disappeared. It is useful to bear this in mind with CFS patients who have so many muscle and joint pains.

Voll testing can also detect a root canal problem in the teeth, and one can use the German Staufen nosodes to ascertain bacterial focus. These are Ostitis, Pulpitis, Root Canal TX, Pulpitis (chronic), Ostitis (exudative), Ostitis of the jaw, and Corynebacterium Anaerobe. These are best used diagnostically to determine a problem tooth, as treatment with these nosodes is only of temporary benefit to the patient. The removal of the root-canalled tooth is, unfortunately, the only solution, and it is hard to know how involved the tooth may be in the course of the patient’s illness.

However, many patients decide to have a questionable tooth removed, as the level of their suffering demands. It seems worth the gamble, to try to regain their health. In my practice I certainly worked on many other areas of problems for the person, and try many remedies before suggesting they think about tooth extraction. It is a hard decision, especially when one considers the stance our orthodox dental profession takes with regard to root canals. It, in public at least, loudly voices its confidence in the root canal procedure, and scoffs at any questions that the alternate community, and even the reputable Dr. Meinig, has raised.

Diane grew up in Oregon, and says she can’t remember a time when she wasn’t singing. Her father gave her a guitar for Christmas when she was 13, and she taught herself folk and country styles, and started to write songs. At 19, believing her first talent was acting, she headed off to England, determined to study acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. But life can take some funny turns. Before she could arrange an interview, she was literally “discovered,” playing her guitar and singing to a small, private, New Year’s Eve party at a London hotel. IMG_0005 2A BBC television producer was there, a screen test followed, and the result was a network primetime series of variety specials! “The Diane Solomon Show” of the late 70s, was a great success, and she quickly became a regular on British TV, with other specials of her own, and numerous guest appearances, including several Royal Gala Specials. She recorded 5 albums, appeared on countless radio shows, TV hosting, and musical theater productions. She headed four major UK Theater concert tours of her own, toured with Glen Campbell on three European tours, and opened for a major Kenny Rogers’ tour in 1991. IMGBut then life took another turn, this time not so fortunate. She was diagnosed with the infamous M.E., or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and for the next three years was too ill to walk across the room unaided. For a total of seven years she struggled with half a life. In the darkest hours songwriting was her saving grace, and the title cut of her new CD, “Good Things Don’t Come Easy” was born of this troubled time. With the help a brilliant German homeopathic system of healing, plus nutrition and herbs, she regained her health. Diane was so impressed with these alternate therapies that she has since gained degrees in both nutrition and homeopathy, achieving a doctorate degree from the British Institute of Homeopathy. She practiced nutrition and homeopathy for fifteen years, using a combination of nutrients, herbs, homeopathic remedies, and diet and lifestyle recommendations. She describes dealing with people’s health issues as a kind of “onion layer” experience. Herbs, nutrients, and lifestyle changes are powerful, yet are in some way addressing the outer layers. They help enormously, but she has found that the major changes in people’s health comes from a deep homeopathic remedy, known as the constitutional remedy. Homeopathy is not an exact science, and thought, attention, focus, intuition, and yes, luck are involved in finding this remedy. When the right deep remedy is chosen, improvements in a client’s well being, both physically and psychologically, can be dramatic, even life-changing! Now focusing on writing, Diane lives in beautiful Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, with her husband, Mark Carey. She writes soft country, folk, and classical ballads, playing both guitar and piano. She has written several non-fiction books fields of nutrition and homeopathy, plus has ghost-written and/or edited seven books for clients, in various fields. She has just finished a middle grade mystery/fantasy novel with her husband Mark, entitled The Ravenstone: The Secret of Ninham Mountain, due for publication Sept 30 2016. Kindle cover final oct 10 2015She has also recently published a book on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, entitled, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: a guide to the homeopathic treatment of CFS/M.E. It was published in November, 2015, and was quickly the top selling book on Amazon in the homeopathic category. Sometimes called a “Renaissance Woman,” she writes, edits, researches, designs and builds gardens, always seeking more knowledge, more understanding, and more creative flow.

    I have been having upper arm pain for about 8-10 months, especially when I sleep. Now I have to check when I had my last root canal! I am seeing an interesting chiropractor for a variety of aches and pains!
