Root canal treatment is a common dental treatment. While many dentists claim that this is a completely safe treatment, there are serious associated health risks, even a high risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer in the long term.
In the United States alone, 41,000 root canal treatments are performed daily. In the Netherlands it is also a widespread dental treatment, but unfortunately the vast majority of dentists are unaware of the serious health risks to which they expose their patients. Teeth that have undergone root canal treatments are actually dead teeth, which can become silent breeding grounds for highly toxic bacteria that can end up in the bloodstream with all the associated consequences.
Root canal treatment is the main cause of heart, kidney, bone and brain diseases
As long as your immune system remains strong, all bacteria from the infected tooth are destroyed. But once your immune system is weakened, for example, by an accident or illness, this can result in your immune system no longer being able to fight infections. As a result, over time chronic degenerative diseases can develop, including heart and kidney disease, arthritis, joint and rheumatic diseases, neurological disorders (including ALS and MS) and autoimmune diseases (lupus and other diseases). There may also be a link with cancer. Dr. Robert Jones claims during a five-year study of 300 breast cancer cases, that 93% of women had previously undergone root canal treatment.
Impossible to sterilise root canal
Scientists have warned people several times over the past 100 years about the dangers that the treatment entails. Dr. Westen A. Price was a dentist and researcher who travelled all over the world to study teeth, bones and eating habits of indigenous peoples. As early as 1922, Dr. Price wrote two ground-breaking books on the link between dental treatments and chronic diseases. Price discovered that it is technically impossible to sterilise a root canal.
Unfortunately, his work was deliberately buried until endodontologist Dr. Georg Menig recognised the work of Price in the nineties and investigated further. Menig also wrote a book about the problem. However, their work is still being pushed aside by medical as well as dental professionals. Why? Simply because root canal treatments are the most profitable dental treatments.
Root canal treatment rather than extracting teeth
In short, it is simply not a good idea to leave a dead body part in your mouth – or in the body at all. Although most infected teeth feel good and look good, maintaining a dead tooth is not worth the health risks. The bacteria in the dead tooth can easily spread if the immune system weakens, thereby infecting tissues, organs or glands. A better solution is to have the tooth extracted and to choose alternatives such as a bridge or implant.
If you have already undergone root canal treatment, consider having the tooth removed. In addition, it is advisable to remove the ligament, the fibres that hold the tooth in the jaw, when pulling the tooth. Preferably consult a holistic dentist, who takes into account the impact on the whole body instead of simply focusing on the mouth.
