Have you ever had dental problems? How about dental problems that effect your WHOLE health and immune system?
I’m doing laser therapy before and after my oral surgery today. Sadly, I’m electing to extract an amalgam filled/crown topped/root canal drilled tooth for the sake of my whole body health. Having Hashimoto’s Autoimmunity, foreign substances like metals, mercury and root canals can trigger systemic immune reactions, even if the tooth doesn’t seem to be causing you direct problems.
Unfortunately, I did all those procedures on tooth ten years ago when I didn’t know anything about holistic health and Autoimmunity. Since then, the metal and root canal have caused unrelenting immune issues and I’m ready to remove it all. It’s not an ideal solution, but sometimes with health, you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place and have to make a gut decision for yourself.
Studies have shown that many people (not all) see a complete reversal of their Hashimoto’s after having safely removed all amalgam mercury fillings. Same has been found for some autoimmune individuals who remove root canals and implants. I’m opting for a partial removable replacement denture to hold the space after the extraction and (for now) avoiding any more embedded foreign objects in my mouth (crowns, bridges and implants.)
Do you have any experience with something like this?! I’d love to hear your story (good or bad) and what you did to help yourself!
(In addition to cold laser, I’m taking homeopathic remedies, gets chiropratic adjustments and sticking to my usual healthy lifestyle habits.)

@molliemoorheadwellness ️ I have actually been thinking of you this whooole process! Thank you for introducing me to the idea of removables. It was the first (and only) time I learned about them and your knowledge and research from years ago is what drove me to dig deeper and ask questions until I leaned about these options. I totally remember those convos we had and so happy to hear yours healed completely! Sending love and gratitude to you!

That’s awesome! I have 2 root canals, no amalgam fillings, is there something to do in that situation?

@drnatashaf seriously?! I had no idea! We just never know the impact we have, right? Or what other people even remember. I wish you the best in this next phase of healing. ️

Good luck Natasha and speedy recovery!! I had the same things — crown on top of amalgam (wtf) and titanium implant which re-triggered Hashis and CFS. Go #erchonia and arnica/ice !! Awesome rx! I took pycnogenol as well which is incredible for any kind of collagen rebuilding, autoimmunity and anti inflammatory effects

My dentist with 40 years experience managed to remove huge amalgam and repair my cracked lower molar without doing root canal with only the crown. I wish I could refer you to him for second opinion!
