Beware of trapped bacteria from root canals
Toxic dental practices - mercury and bacteria
Root canal treatment, fluoride and mercury contribute to the growing burden of "incurable" diseases we have today thanks to decades of Mainstream Dental treatments. The legal profession and insurance providers aren't anxious to face these problems either. The fact is that root canal treated teeth can cause toxic by products of residual bacteria that could spread to adjacent teeth, blood vessels and nerves. Most people who have lived with mercury-based fillings have been swallowing heavy metal-based toxins for years. At a later stage teeth develop an abscess and then root canal treatment is given as a routine procedure to "save" the tooth. But in the long run many such teeth have to be removed due to ongoing infections around the tooth. Teeth are attached to gums and jaws and bacteria continues to breed. The latest drug resistant bacterial takeover is now a serious threat - not only to your smile but to your heart.
Root canals and your super-toxic potential
Toxins are produced as a by-product by the bacteria that are trapped by the billions in teeth that have had root canal treatment. The microscopic tubules within our teeth are 1 to 1.3 microns in diameter. That is big enough to accommodate bacteria, but too small to allow entry of white blood cells (which are the body's principal way of controlling excessive bacterial populations). Existing inside the tooth, these bacteria have no access to air so they mutate into the anaerobic form. Their metabolism changes so that they give off waste products that are incredibly toxic.
They contain Thio-ethers that are 1000 x more toxic than botulism toxin, which used to be considered the most toxic organic substance around. Severe toxins from these root-canal bacteria also include thio-ethanols and mercaptan which have been found in the tumours of women who have breast cancer. They can migrate to other parts of the body, draining through the lymphatic system and escaping into the bloodstream. These toxic substances also proliferate in cavitations caused by extracted secondary teeth. So root canals and cavitations need to be regularly treated by a holistic dentist if you want to prevent the cycles of infection without antibiotics that no longer are effective. Pockets of bacteria develop into bio film colonies that are covered in fibrin strands to bypass the immune system. Electronic treatment from Rife and other frequency devices are proving to be very effective in killing bacteria that antibiotics and immune cells can't kill. If you intend to eliminate modern mutant bacteria throughout the body the best option is to use Rife frequencies. Once you have invested in your Rife apparatus you can address the exact pathogens that are causing the infection. As many of us know, it works!
Dental health, fluoride and teeth - a holistic opinion
Not all dentists will say that fluoride is toxic - but it is when used excessively the way mainstream dentists promote it. Fluoride destroys collagen tissue and we know this is bad news for gums as well as our arteries. Holistic health care includes the entire body and the oral cavity should always be part of a complete medical evaluation. Application of this information can provide major breakthroughs for patients searching for the missing link to improve their health. Each tooth in the mouth relates to a specific acupuncture point. When a tooth becomes infected, the organ on the same meridian can become unhealthy. Toxins seeping out of root canals can cause heart disease. Special precautions are taken by green or holistic dentists for amalgam removal and for taking X rays. If you consider implants first request an allergy test for specific materials. Consider using bridges as well.
Infections from teeth that are linked to the heart?
Not caring for our teeth can lead to periodontal (gum) disease. The inflammation caused by gum disease (and excessive fluoride) can be linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, pancreatic cancer and pre term birth. Research also suggests that oral bacteria may be linked to heart disease, arterial blockages and stroke. For instance - a left lower impacted wisdom tooth (number 17) may not be producing any noticeable pain or inflammation. We are generally unaware of its effect on our nagging health issues. For instance chronic left shoulder pain and / or intermittent heart pain and palpitations. They indicate a disturbed field along an eye tooth meridian. Wisdom teeth or amalgam fillings can also set off heart palpitations and sap your strength. Dentists who know this have many patient testimonials to show how associated problems abate once offending tooth issues are resolved.
Mercury from fish - but especially your fillings
Researchers at the University of Calgary point out that dental amalgams are the most likely source of the mercury poisoning. It has been found that patients with congestive heart failure (idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy or IDCM) have vastly elevated concentrations of mercury in their heart tissue. The left ventricle of patients with IDCM and valvular disorders had mercury concentrations 22,000 times higher than in the patients without heart disease. Test results revealed frequent premature heartbeats in all the IDCM patients and ventricular tachycardias (irregular heartbeats) in at lease half of the patients.
Clinically, the Bacteroides (Gram negative) are becoming more resist to many popular antibiotics, including Cefoxitin, Clindamycin, Metronidazole, Carbapenems, and Fluoroquinolones (e.g., Gatifloxacin, Levofloxacin, and Moxifloxacin). The newer fluoroquinolones, including sitafloxacin, clinafloxacin, and garenoxacin, are generally more effective - but for how long?
If oral bacteria gain entrance into deeper tissues, they may cause abscesses of alveolar (lung), brain, or affect the extremities. Such infections usually contain mixtures of bacteria with Bacteroides melaninogenicus often playing a dominant role. If oral streptococci are introduced into wounds created by dental manipulation or treatment, they may thavel in the bloodstream and adhere to heart valves and initiate subacute bacterial endocarditis.
Endocarditis - bacteria that infects the heart interior
Bacteria - especially certain oral strains of Streptococcus mutans (associated with tooth decay) can migrate from the mouth, via the bloodstream to the heart. This causes a bacterial heart infection called endocarditis. This can happen if there are cuts or ulcers in the mouth or gum disease. Small masses called biofilms form at the site of infection. A meshwork of fibrin and other cellular material similar to that used by the body to form blood clots covers the bacteria and so the immune system cannot detect the pathogens. It can spill out into the bloodstream and affect the heart. It commonly affects heart valves, but can also seriously infect areas around mechanical devices that are implanted in the heart such as artificial heart valves, pacemakers, or implantable defibrillators. Endocarditis can result in serious complications such as stroke, the need for open heart surgery, or even death. Not all antibiotics or natural antimicrobial agents can penetrate the bio film structure. Antibiotics are now losing the battle against these germs and because of widespread resistance to them.
But even after taking antibiotics some potentially toxic elements can be lethal if they accidentally enter your bloodstream. Gram-negative bacteria especially, can leave behind endotoxins called liposaccharides (LPS) that have deadly and devastating effets on our cardiovascular health. Lipopolysaccharides (LPS or fatty sugar molecules with surface antigens) are commonly found in the gut and in situ, are not harmful. But if they escape into the blood plasma for some reason they are harmful. Elevated levels are directly inked to an increased risk for heart disease and strokes. A 5 year Wandsworth Heart and Stroke Study confirmed that regarless of other risk factors like cholesterol, blood pressure, obesity, exercise, alcohol or smoking, participants with higher LPS counts in their bloodstream had a three-fold increase in developing atherosclerosis. The most common cause of leakage of bacteria from the gut is the "leaky gut" syndrome. During extreme sports the blood is infused with higher levels of what the immune system regards as endotoxins. The harm is done by the violent inflammatory reaction that involves cytokines, leucocytes and inflammation. But we can also experience chronic liopsaccharide poisoning that happens imperceptibly.
Here's why lipopolysaccharides are so disruptive
Liposaccharides (LPS) in the bloodstream cause systemic inflammatory responses (Increased levels of C-reactive protein.)
They increase levels of inflammatory cytokines like tumor necrosis factor and interleukin 6
Increased MCP-1 and fractalkine - high levels affect autoimmune disorders, (rheumatoid arthritis, lupus) kidney and heart disease.
Increased cortisol and adverse adrenal and thyroid function,
Decreased tryptophan, serotonin & melatonin (depression, insomnia)
Increased 3-hydroxy-kynurenine and quinolinic acid - brain damage
More free fatty acids in the blood, increases visceral fat tissue inflammation and water retention. (Bigger waistlines!)
Higher levels of resistin hormone that promotes insulin resistance,
Increased transient heart rate, blood clots due to ruptured plaque.
People who repeatedly take regular antibiotics are not usually aware of the toxic potential of their remaining residues. The position becomes more dangerous if you suffer from what is now diagnosed as the leaky gut syndrome. If these toxins leak out into tissues they set of a violent inflammatory reaction from the immune system. Taking more and more anti inflammatory drugs will not solve the problem.
