I recently accompanied my husband on a business trip to Nice, France. On the trip home I got a tickle in my throat. I didn’t have any of my usual potions to nip it in the bud, so I had to go through an ugly upper respiratory infection. The sinuses and nasal passages on my left side had finally cleared when my back molar became so painful that I couldn’t chew on it. That’s unusual for an upper respiratory infection. Teeth may hurt, but they aren’t painful when chewing. The next day, my gum started to swell. A blister formed then erupted, releasing typical blister fluid. After consulting my regular dentist and a very kind endodontist, I saw Jack Ferguson, a practitioner of biological dentistry, which you might think of as the holistic branch of dentistry. What Jack said astonished me.
Many of you are aware of acupuncture meridians, lines of energy with points on them that acupuncturists place needles in for a therapeutic effect. The meridians are associated with organ systems of the body, and there are meridians through every tooth. A root canal or amalgam filling on a particular tooth can cause problems for the organ or organs associated with that tooth. The meridian running through my infected root canal was associated with the left breast. Jack has analyzed records from his practice and found a clear link between breast cancer and a root canal in the teeth associated with the breast. Other dentists have found the same. I decided to have the tooth pulled.
The tooth continued to drain then two days before I was to have it pulled, there was a clear improvement in my overall well being. I suspect the inflammation or infection in that tooth had placed a load on my immune system that was now lifting. The feeling of well being has continued as the tooth has healed.
I told a friend of mine who was recently treated for breast cancer about this experience. She saw Dr. Ferguson who found a root canal on the tooth linked to the breast that had cancer. She had the tooth pulled.
This doesn’t apply only to breast cancer. Any organ can be affected depending on the tooth. Read this article for details. Here’s a chart showing the organs associated with each tooth. To help orient you to the chart, tooth 8 and 9 are your upper front teeth, and 24 and 25 are your lower front teeth. It’s like someone straightened out the natural curve in your teeth. The wisdom teeth are on each end of the chart.
