From Whole Body Dentistry: A Complete Guide to Understanding the Impact of Dentistry on Total Health by Mark A. Breiner, DDS
“This year millions of adults and their children will needlessly suffer a broad range of preventable illnesses. Less serious conditions, like excessive fatigue and headaches, may go unnoticed or will be incorrectly attributed to aging or stress. Hundreds of thousands of individuals will develop more serious conditions like arthritis, colitis, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, infections, hypertension, thyroid imbalances, migraines, kidney damage, and even neurological problems. These people will become ill for no apparent reason. (from Whole Body Dentistry, p. 22)
“But more often than not, there is an underlying issue that triggers these people’s illnesses, and that issue is often found in the mouth. Based on more than forty years of research and observation, the renowned German physician, Dr. Reinhard Voll, estimated that nearly 80% of all illness is related entirely or partially to problems in the mouth.” (from Whole Body Dentistry, p. 22)
Such health problems can be traced back to dental issues such as amalgams containing mercury, root canals that harbor infections, and cavitations (a hole in the bone that has not healed properly, usually in an area where a tooth has been pulled, and that becomes filled with toxins).
According to Dr. Breiner: “Some of the health problems that have been associated with root canals and cavitations include: anemia, angina, appendicitis, arteriosclerosis, arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, colitis, cystitis, diabetes, eczema, endocarditis, epilepsy, gall bladder problems, gout, heart disease, hypertension, hyperthyroid, iritis, migraine, nephritis, neuralgia, neuritis, sinus infection, tachycardia, tonsillitis, and varicose veins.” (from Whole Body Dentistry, p. 190).
A word about mercury removal: Dr. Breiner explains in his book the dangers of improper mercury removal on health and the protocol he uses to accomplish this safely.
In his book, Dr. Breiner sites many instances where physical problems have resolved when dental issues are taken care of. If you have a chronic condition and have not been able to find the root cause of it, or if you want to prevent problems in the future, please read Whole Body Dentistry and remember to check your mouth!
