What is a Root Canal, and Why These Toxic Teeth Could Be Making You Sick

By Dr. Joseph Mercola
(below is from 2 articles written by Dr. Mercola about Root Canals)

Story at-a-glance 

  • During a root canal, there is no way to sterilize the tooth; after the root canal, dangerous bacteria hide out in the tooth and are unreachable by antibiotics. Bacteria harbored in root canal teeth and surrounding bone release potent toxins.
  • Root canal teeth no longer have a blood supply so the bacteria inside root canal teeth are protected from the immune system.
  • Pathogenic bacteria from infected root canals that infect the surrounding jawbone inhibit, destroy, or kill the white blood cells designed to eliminate them, which is why root canal teeth are a focus of chronic infection and one of the main sources of chronic toxicity in the body.
  • Root-canaled and filled teeth harbor bacteria that morph into very toxic forms, which then can migrate to other tissues in your body and cause serious medical conditions, including diseases of your heart, kidneys, bones, and brain.
  • If you have a diseased tooth, or if you’ve already had a root canal, I highly recommend consulting a biological dentist about have it extracted. A biological dentist will be able to provide you with a more comprehensive, holistic solution for your teeth that will not harm your health.

Do you have a chronic degenerative disease?  If so, have you been told, “It’s all in your head?”

Well, that might not be that far from the truth… the root cause of your illness may be in your mouth.

There is a common dental procedure that nearly every dentist will tell you is completely safe, despite the fact that scientists have been warning of its dangers for more than 100 years.

Every day in the United States alone, 41,000 of these dental procedures are performed on patients who believe they are safely and permanently fixing their problem.

What is this dental procedure? 

The Root Canal.

More than 25 million root canals are performed every year in this country.

Root-canaled teeth are essentially “dead” teeth that can become silent incubators for highly toxic anaerobic bacteria that can, under certain conditions, make their way into your bloodstream to cause a number of serious medical conditions—many not appearing until decades later.

Most of these toxic teeth feel and look fine for many years, which make their role in systemic disease even harder to trace back.

Sadly, the vast majority of dentists are oblivious to the serious potential health risks they are exposing their patients to, risks that persist for the rest of their patients’ lives. The American Dental Association claims root canals have been proven safe, but they have NO published data or actual research to substantiate this claim. Please don’t let your dentist mislead you that a root canal is your only option, or that it is entirely safe. These dead teeth typically become one of, if not the worst, sources of chronic bacterial toxicity in your body.

Were it not for a brilliant pioneering dentist who, more than a century ago, made the connection between root-canaled teeth and disease, this underlying cause of disease may have remained hidden to this day. The dentist’s name was Weston Price—regarded by many as the greatest dentist of all time.

Weston A. Price: World’s Greatest Dentist

Most dentists would be doing an enormous service to public health if they familiarized themselves with the work of Dr. Weston Price1. Unfortunately, his work continues to be discounted and suppressed by medical and dental professionals alike.

Dr. Price was a dentist and researcher who traveled the world to study the teeth, bones, and diets of native populations living without the “benefit” of modern food. Around the year 1900, Price had been treating persistent root canal infections and became suspicious that root-canaled teeth always remained infected, in spite of treatments. Then one day, he recommended to a woman, wheelchair bound for six years, to have her root canal tooth extracted, even though it appeared to be fine.

She agreed, so he extracted her tooth and then implanted it under the skin of a rabbit. The rabbit amazingly developed the same crippling arthritis as the woman and died from the infection 10 days later. But the woman, now free of the toxic tooth, immediately recovered from her arthritis and could now walk without even the assistance of a cane.

Price discovered that it’s mechanically impossible to sterilize a root-canaled (e.g. root-filled) tooth.

He then went on to show that many chronic degenerative diseases originate from root-filled teeth—the most frequent being heart and circulatory diseases. He actually found 16 different causative bacterial agents for these conditions. But there were also strong correlations between root-filled teeth and diseases of the joints, brain and nervous system. Dr. Price went on to write two groundbreaking books in 1922 detailing his research into the link between dental pathology and chronic illness. Unfortunately, his work was deliberately buried for 70 years, until finally one endodontist named George Meinig recognized the importance of Price’s work and sought to expose the truth.

Dr. Meinig Advances the Work of Dr. Price

Dr. Meinig, a native of Chicago, was a captain in the U.S. Army during World War II before moving to Hollywood to become a dentist for the stars. Dr. Meinig brings an interesting perspective to expose the latent dangers of root canal therapy. Dr. Meinig is particularly well qualified to comment on this topic as 60 years ago he was one of the founders of the American Association of Endodontists (root canal specialists)! When he wasn’t filling canals himself, he was teaching the technique to dentists across the country at weekend seminars and clinics.

After he retired he decided to read all 1,174 pages of the detailed research of Dr. Weston Price, (DDS). Dr. Meinig was startled and shocked as he found a valid documentation of systemic illnesses resulting from latent infections lingering in filled roots. After reviewing Dr. Price’s material he wrote Root Canal Cover Up, which continues to be the most comprehensive reference on this topic today.

What Dentists Don’t Know About the Anatomy of Your Teeth

Your teeth are made of the hardest substances in your body [though it’s not all hard and solid]. In the middle of each tooth is the pulp chamber, a soft living inner structure that houses blood vessels and nerves. Surrounding the pulp chamber is the dentin, which is made of living cells that secrete a hard mineral substance. The outermost and hardest layer of your tooth is the white enamel, which encases the dentin.

The roots of each tooth descend into your jawbone and are held in place by the periodontal ligament. In dental school, dentists are taught that each tooth has one to four major canals. However, there are accessory canals that are never mentioned. Literally miles of them! 

Just as your body has large blood vessels that branch down into very small capillaries, each of your teeth has a maze of very tiny tubules. The bulk of the tooth structure is composed of dentinal tubules, hollow structures that run from the main canal outward. If you were to put these tubules end to end from just a single rooted tooth, they would stretch for about three miles.

Microscopic organisms regularly move in and around these tubules, like gophers in underground tunnels. They’re big enough to harbor bacteria three across, which you can never remove or sterilize. A tooth is more like a sponge than a solid structure.

When a dentist performs a root canal, he or she hollows out the tooth, then fills the hollow chamber with a substance (called guttapercha), which cuts off the tooth from its blood supply, so fluid can no longer circulate through the tooth. But the maze of tiny tubules remains. And bacteria, cut off from their food supply, hide out in these tunnels where they are remarkably safe from antibiotics and your own body’s immune defenses, because the bacteria are protected inside of your dead tooth.

Anaerobic bacteria, which do not require oxygen to survive, thrive in these side canals and excrete toxicity from digesting necrotic tissue that leads to chronic infection. Blood supply and lymphatics that surround those dead teeth drains this toxicity and allows it to spread throughout your body. This toxicity will invade all organ systems and can lead to a plethora of diseases such as autoimmune diseases, cancers, musculoskeletal diseases, irritable bowel diseases, and depression, to name just a few.

Many dentists believe they can sterilize a root canal tooth and that the act of instrumenting and irrigating the canal will eliminate all the bacteria, but that’s not the case. And even a perfectly sealed root canal cannot prevent the small molecule exotoxins produced by the bacteria inside the root canal tooth from easily migrating out of the tooth and into the body.

The Root Cause of Much Disease

Under the stresses of oxygen and nutrient deprivation, these formerly friendly organisms morph into stronger, more virulent anaerobes that produce a variety of potent toxins. What were once ordinary, friendly oral bacteria mutate into highly toxic pathogens lurking in the tubules of the dead tooth, just awaiting an opportunity to spread.

No amount of sterilization has been found effective in reaching these tubules—and just about every single root-canaled tooth has been found colonized by these bacteria, especially around the apex and in the periodontal ligament. Oftentimes, the infection extends down into the jawbone where it creates cavitations —areas of necrotic tissue in the jawbone itself.

Cavitations are areas of unhealed bone, often accompanied by pockets of infected tissue and gangrene. Sometimes they form after a tooth extraction (such as a wisdom tooth extraction), but they can also follow a root canal. According to Weston Price Foundation, in the records of 5,000 surgical cavitation cleanings, only two were found healed.

And all of this occurs with few, if any, accompanying symptoms. So, you may have an abscessed dead tooth and not know it. This focal infection in the immediate area of the root-canaled tooth is bad enough, but the damage doesn’t stop there.

Root Canals Can Lead to Heart, Kidney, Bone, and Brain Disease

As long as your immune system remains strong, any bacteria that stray away from the infected tooth are captured and destroyed. But once your immune system is weakened by something like an accident or illness or other trauma, your immune system may be unable to keep the infection in check. And the longer root canal-treated teeth stay in your body, the more your immune system becomes compromised.

These bacteria can migrate out into surrounding tissues by hitching a ride into your blood stream, where they are transported to new locations to set up camp. The new location can be any organ or gland or tissue.

Dr. Price was able to transfer diseases harbored by humans to rabbits, by implanting fragments of root-canaled teeth, as mentioned above. He found that root canal fragments from a person who had suffered a heart attack, when implanted into a rabbit, would cause a heart attack in the rabbit within a few weeks.

He discovered he could transfer heart disease to the rabbit 100 percent of the time! Other diseases were more than 80 percent transferable by this method. Nearly every chronic degenerative disease has been linked with root canals, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Arthritis, joint, and rheumatic diseases
  • Neurological diseases (including ALS and MS)
  • Autoimmune diseases (Lupus and more)

There may also be a cancer connection. Dr. Robert Jones, a researcher of the relationship between root canals and breast cancer, found an extremely high correlation between root canals and breast cancer.4 He claims to have found the following correlations in a five-year study of 300 breast cancer cases:

  • 93 percent of women with breast cancer had root canals
  • 7 percent had other oral pathology
  • Tumors, in the majority of cases, occurred on the same side of the body as the root canal(s) or other oral pathology

Dr. Jones claims that toxins from the bacteria in an infected tooth or jawbone are able to inhibit the proteins that suppress tumor development. A German physician reported similar findings. Dr. Josef Issels reported that, in his 40 years of treating “terminal” cancer patients, 97 percent of his cancer patients had root canals. If these physicians are correct, the cure for cancer may be as simple as having a tooth pulled, then rebuilding your immune system.

Good Bugs Gone Bad

How are these mutant oral bacteria connected with heart disease or arthritis? The ADA and the AAE claim it’s a “myth” that the bacteria found in and around root-canaled teeth can cause disease5. But they base that on the misguided assumption that the bacteria in these diseased teeth are the SAME as normal bacteria in your mouth—and that’s clearly not the case.

Today, bacteria can be identified using DNA analysis, whether they’re dead or alive, from their telltale DNA signatures.

In a continuation of Dr. Price’s work, the Toxic Element Research Foundation (TERF) used DNA analysis to examine root-canaled teeth, and they found bacterial contamination in 100 percent of the samples tested. They identified 42 different species of anaerobic bacteria in 43 root canal samples. In cavitations, 67 different bacteria were identified among the 85 samples tested, with individual samples housing between 19 to 53 types of bacteria each. The bacteria they found included the following types:

  • Capnocytophagaochracea6
  • Fusobacteriumnucleatum7
  • Gemellamorbillorum8
  • Leptotrichiabuccalis
  • Porphyromonasgingivalis9

Are these just benign, ordinary mouth bugs? Absolutely not. Four can affect your heart, three can affect your nerves, two can affect your kidneys, two can affect your brain, and one can infect your sinus cavities… so they are anything BUT friendly! (If you want to see just how unfriendly they can be, I invite you to investigate the footnotes.)

Approximately 400 percent more bacteria were found in the blood surrounding the root canal tooth than were found in the tooth itself, suggesting the tooth is the incubator and the periodontal ligament is the food supply. The bone surrounding root-canaled teeth was found even HIGHER in bacterial count… not surprising, since bone is virtual buffet of bacterial nutrients.

Bacteria from Root Canals May Worsen Other Diseases

Since root canal teeth are chronically infected, they may contribute to a number of different health problems, including heart disease. While the ADA insists bacteria from root canal teeth can never travel to distant sites in your body, Dr. Robert Kulacz, dentist and author of The Toxic Tooth: How a Root Canal Could Be Making You Sickdisagrees, explaining:

“Heart disease is caused by the damage to the inside lining of the blood vessel (the cholesterol is a secondary byproduct). The primary cause of heart disease is the damage of the intima lining of the blood vessel and migration of macrophages and cholesterol inside that artery. 

Inflammation causes plaque to rupture into the lumen, into the space of the blood vessel, causing a blood clot and a heart attack. [A] study done in 2013… compared the bacterial DNA in blood clots and arterial plaque in heart attack patients to the DNA of the bacteria in the mouth. 

The same bacteria found in the root canal teeth and in gum disease are found in the plaques in coronary arteries and in the blood clots that caused the heart attack.

These bacteria move from the mouth into other sites of the body like the arterial plaques. They’ve also found the same bacteria in the pericardial fluid or the fluid that surrounds the heart… In heart disease you don’t want infection and inflammation in an arterial plaque.

The presence of oral bacteria from root canal teeth and gum disease in the arterial plaque and blood clots of heart attack patients points to direct causation, rather than correlation between oral infection and cardiovascular disease.”

All Root Canal Teeth Will Become More Infected Over Time

Because root canal teeth no longer have a blood supply, the bacteria remaining inside all root canal teeth are effectively “hidden” from the immune system. To make matters worse, the root canal tooth becomes more infected over time due to the influx of bacteria from the gum tissue surrounding the tooth.

Other research has shown pathogenic bacteria from infected root canals destroy or kill the white blood cells designed to eliminate them, which is why the surrounding jaw bone can harbor such chronic infection. The bacteria can also evade your immune system by:

  • Bacterial mimicry; mimicking your body’s own bacteria, which your white blood cells will not attack
  • Disabling your antibodies and white blood cells
  • Forming sticky biofilms

Since When is Leaving A Dead Body Part IN Your Body a Good Idea?

There is no other medical procedure that involves allowing a dead body part to remain in your body. When your appendix dies, it’s removed. If you get frostbite or gangrene on a finger or toe, it is amputated. If a baby dies in utero, the body typically initiates a miscarriage.

Your immune system doesn’t care for dead substances, and just the presence of dead tissue can cause your system to launch an attack, which is another reason to avoid root canals—they leave behind a dead tooth.

Infection, plus the autoimmune rejection reaction, causes more bacteria to collect around the dead tissue. In the case of a root canal, bacteria are given the opportunity to flush into your blood stream every time you bite down.

Why Dentists Cling to the Belief Root Canals are Safe

The ADA rejects Dr. Price’s evidence, claiming root canals are safe, yet they offer no published data or actual research to substantiate their claim. American Heart Association recommends a dose of antibiotics before many routine dental procedures to prevent infective endocarditis (IE) if you have certain heart conditions that predispose you to this type of infection.

So, on the one hand, the ADA acknowledges oral bacteria can make their way from your mouth to your heart and cause a life-threatening infection.

But at the same time, the industry vehemently denies any possibility that these same bacteria—toxic strains KNOWN to be pathogenic to humans—can hide out in your dead root-canaled tooth to be released into your blood stream every time you chew, where they can damage your health in a multitude of ways.

Is this really that large of a leap? Could there be another reason so many dentists, as well as the ADA and the AAE, refuse to admit root canals are dangerous? Well, yes, as a matter of fact, there is. Root canals are the most profitable procedure in dentistry.10

What You Need to Know to AVOID a Root Canal

I strongly recommend never getting a root canal. Risking your health to preserve a tooth simply doesn’t make sense. Unfortunately, there are many people who’ve already had one. If you have, you should seriously consider having the tooth removed, even if it looks and feels fine. Remember, as soon as your immune system is compromised, your risk of developing a serious medical problem increases—and assaults on your immune system are far too frequent in today’s world.

If you have a tooth removed, there are a few options available to you.

  1. Partial denture: This is a removable denture, often just called a “partial.” It’s the simplest and least expensive option.
  2. Bridge: This is a more permanent fixture resembling a real tooth but is a bit more involved and expensive to build.
  3. Implant: This is a permanent artificial tooth, typically titanium, implanted in your gums and jaw. There are some problems with these due to reactions to the metals used. Zirconium is a newer implant material that shows promise for fewer complications.

But just pulling the tooth and inserting some sort of artificial replacement isn’t enough.

Dentists are taught to remove the tooth but leave your periodontal ligament. But as you now know, this ligament can serve as a breeding ground for deadly bacteria. Most experts who’ve studied this recommend removing the ligament, along with one millimeter of the bony socket, in order to drastically reduce your risk of developing an infection from the bacterially infected tissues left behind.

If your dentist is not actively engaged in continuing education, and is not open to alternative, toxin-free forms of dentistry, there’s a good chance he or she is not aware of the risks of — and alternatives to — root canals.

I strongly recommend consulting a biological dentist because they are uniquely trained to do these extractions properly and safely, as well as being adept at mercury filling if necessary. A biological dentist will be able to provide you with a more comprehensive, holistic solution for your teeth that will not harm your health.

Afterword by Dr. Dharmaraj, DMD

I commend Dr. Mercola for taking such a public stance regarding Root Canals, because so many biological holistic dentists (at least in the USA) are having their practices targeted and their licenses stripped for sharing these truths that have been covered up by the American Dental Association for over a hundred years. It’s the same American Dental Association which owns the patents on the formula for toxic mercury-silver fillings and have a direct financial interest in their continued use and perceived safety, so they are no stranger to cover-ups.

Dr. Mercola’s last article on Root Canals was published in May 2015, and is, to my knowledge accurate and mostly up to date. And, since I had trained with the leading holistic biological dentists in America more recently than that and attended cutting-edge biological dental conferences and trainings such as that of the IABDM, IAOMT, and Huggins-Grube Protocol, I have some additional important facts to share, and some observations from my own experience working in a biological holistic dental practice. The following information is especially relevant for those who do currently have 1 or more root canals and would like more information as to what is the next step and what important things to know regarding the procedures to remove and replace it safely.

It is important if you have Root Canals, to have them removed by a biological holistic dentist. Why is this important? Because your average dentist, even one having attended a top university with all of the accolades, will not have been trained how to remove the root canal tooth properly. We dentists are not taught about the importance of removing the Periodontal Ligament (PDL) when a tooth is extracted, and without its removal chronic infection and disease can remain even after the root canal tooth is removed, causing an area of necrotic (dead) bone called a cavitation.

Removing the PDL takes additional time, patience, skill. You could say something like, “After removal of the root canal tooth, could you clean out the bone to prepare it for an implant in the future?” The dentist will likely suggest to have the implant placed immediately – if you are with a biological holistic dentist who is immediately placing a Tachyonized Zirconium implant then go for it, otherwise I recommend waiting some time (at least 6-9 months) for the bone to heal. They will recommend a bone graft or “socket preservation”, which contains the necrotic bone of cadavers and could cause long term chronic bone disease (but is generally considered safe by a majority of dentists) – you should always avoid this!  A safe and effective and cutting-edge alternative to a bone graft is using PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) which are healing factors taken from the patient’s own blood.

Also, the conventional dentist will 99% of the time use a local anesthetic injection that contains Epinephrine. Epinephrine, otherwise known as adrenaline, is an agent in local anesthesia injections that constricts the blood vessels in the mouth so that the numbing effect lasts longer, which is convenient for the dentist to not need to re-inject – your mouth could be rendered numb for hours. However, by causing the blood vessels to constrict, the blood supply to the bone is cut off, causing the death of bone cells which never recover, which in the case of a tooth extraction, would leave a hole in the jaw of dead necrotic bone that becomes a hotbed of infectious bacteria, this is known as a cavitation. The point I am trying to make clear is the importance of asking your dentists to only use local anesthetic with NO EPINEPHRINE. The dentist may grumble about it, because it creates more work for them (re-injection every 20-30 minutes instead of every 2-3 hours), but it is safer for you. If you don’t want to argue with them about the dangers of Epinephrine (which they have all been taught in dental school is very safe), then you could infer that you may be allergic to epinephrine because you have felt heart palpitations and were afraid of a heart attack the last time a dentist used it. I don’t encourage lying, though sometimes we need to speak the language of the conventional dentist in order to get the safe treatment we all deserve. Since epinephrine/adrenaline injection can in fact cause increased heartrate, arrhythmia, and potentially a heart attack, the possibility of this would be the main reason why a dentist would agree to a local anesthetic with no epinephrine (such as Carbocaine/Mepivacaine or Citanest Plain). I highly recommend to say NO to epinephrine in all of your dental treatments, not just extractions.

Titanium Implants (metal screws placed in the jaw) are heralded by conventional dentists as the go-to treatment to replace an extracted tooth, though they mostly do not understand the potential complications and risks. The issue with Titanium dental implants is that over time, the outer layer of titanium oxidizes to form Titanium Dioxide and Titanium Trioxide, toxic metal ions that enter your blood stream. The body does not recognize the Titanium screwed into your jaw as self, and thus futilely attacks it with white blood cells (as it does with a root canal tooth), draining resources until your immune system goes into gradual decline. Yet another issue is that because it is a metal, it conducts electrical charge, which is several orders of magnitude larger than the electrical impulses conducted by neurons firing in your brain, and some believe this can alter the way you think and behave. These are reasons why biological holistic dentists advocate to never have any metal placed in your mouth as a restorative material. That said, it is by far the lesser of two evils, and is by far a better option than a root canal.

Recently, advances in research and technology have made the Zirconium crystal implant the safest long-term option that retains full function, even more so when the crystal is Tachyonized by Advanced Tachyon Technologies. To be Tachyonized means that the Zirconium crystal has been sent by the dentist to the Advanced Tachyon Technologies lab in Santa Rosa, California and “Tachyonized” in a patented process that turns the Zirconium crystal implant into an antenna for source energy – healing energy. This allows the bone around the implant to heal faster and stronger, and is revitalizing for the blood and for the immune system. Because the Tachyonization process is charged by weight (approx. $31 per ounce, plus shipping), and a tooth implant is tiny, the cost is miniscule for this process while the benefit is tremendous. You’d need to find a biological holistic dentist who not only places Zirconium crystal implants, who also understands about the Tachyonization process – to this end I highly recommend Dr. Gregor Hocevar in Slovenia, who practices at a top Swiss standard but charges at an Eastern European price.


Implants of any kind will still be one of the more expensive options, so if you have many root canal teeth to be removed and a tighter budget, then Removable Partial Dentures is a safe and effective choice. They may not be as aesthetic looking as the other options, and your ability to chew and taste and speak may be somewhat affected, but this is a safe and effective option. Make sure you get a Removable Partial Denture with no metal clasps and no metal at all, and
I recommend a Nylon material that is more comfortable and less likely to attract bacteria, rather than traditional acrylic denture. Take your denture out to clean them only after you eat every meal – I recommend to keep them in when you sleep and at all other times, so that it feels like it is part of you rather than separate from you.

Generally, I do not recommend bridges, because they permanently damage the teeth in front of and behind the edentulous space created by the tooth extraction(s), but in some cases it may make sense.

While removing a root canal and cleaning the infected PDL and bone from around the root canal, bacteria will enter the blood stream. To combat this, your dentist may suggest antibiotics, and over-the-counter or prescription painkillers, though both antibiotics and ibuprofen will reduce or prevent bone healing. Instead of antibiotics, use a professionally effective version of Vitamin C such as IV Vitamin C, Tachyonized Pure C, Liposomal Vitamin C, or Lipospheric Vitamin C (any other type of Vitamin C besides the ones I listed above, the ones many people have in their vitamin cabinet, will have almost no effect). Silver Hydrosol (such as professional strength Argentyn 23, is also a great alternative to antibiotics and is naturally antimicrobial, and the nano-sized silver particles of Silver Hydrosol is proven to be much more effective that Colloidal Silver and much safer as well. Instead of traditional painkillers, use homeopathic Hypericum Perforatum and Arnica Montana 1M (1M is professional strength). We routinely gave patients who had a full mouth of root canals removed from a many-hours long surgery only these two homepoathics (and sometimes only Arnica 1M) and they never needed another painkiller, you will be amazed at how well they treat pain.

I’ve gone into a lot of detail, which I hope is useful for those who are looking to remove and replace your root canals. Much of the above is common knowledge for a biological holistic dentist who keeps current with the science and developments, but this information is completely unknown to 99% of dentists, and they would be hard-pressed to believe it until they experience their own patient’s health miraculously improving after the removal of root canals.

When I worked in one of the well-regarded biological holistic dental offices in the US, about 30%-40% of my dental patients came in with cancer. More often than not, they had literally tried everything else before finally coming across biological holistic dentistry as their last resort. I experienced patient after patient walk out of the dental office after surgery with renewed health and vigor, having had the chronic infections and toxic mercury removed from their mouths in a safe and comprehensive way, and I saw many cases of these patients beating cancer and recovering from diseases such as multiple sclerosis. In no way can we guarantee a cure, but by removing your root canals you give your immune system a fighting chance and give your body a real opportunity to come back into health and wholeness.

P.S. This is a lot of information to digest, and thus we did not discuss the dangers of Mercury (“Silver”) Amalgam fillings, nor the dangers of Fluoride, and the effectiveness of Ayurvedic Oil Pulling at healing gum disease and periodontal disease, those will have to be topics explored at a later date, or you can consult a Biological Holistic Dentist for their advice. I, Dr. Dharmaraj, am available for dental consultation sessions via Skype – you would at a minimum need to email me digital X-rays before we can begin any consultation.
