Posted: July 8th, 2015 | Author:admin | Filed under:Dentistry, Health, Teeth | Comments Off on Root canal procedure risks exposed
Excerpts from a very important article about a subject that most people have not considered. A friend of mine, years ago immediately went to the dentist to have a root canal extracted, once he discovered this information about root canals. The “first principles” can be applied to many other medical procedures – circumcision and vaccinations, surgery, radiation and pharmaceutical drugs.
“The discovery of truth is prevented more effectively, not by the false appearance things present and which mislead into error, not directly by weakness of the reasoning powers, but by preconceived opinion, by prejudice.” – Arthur Schopenhauer
How do we decide what is correct and what is false in medicine and dentistry? In other words, how do we decide who or what to believe when it comes to healthcare, integrative or Western medicine? With so many opposing points of view on the same health topic how do we know which one to believe?
If you are more inclined to prefer a more natural approach to medicine does that mean discarding everything that allopathic medicine has to offer? Conversely, if one chooses to follow a predominately mainstream medicine approach, then should all natural alternatives be discarded as useless? Naturally, the answer is, ‘of course not.’ There are good and bad in both camps. But how do you distinguish the good from the bad – the correct from incorrect?
How to protect your health by using ‘first principles’
You do this by first distilling any conclusion down to the fundamental principles upon which the conclusion is based and reason up from there. When either accepting or challenging current belief systems, it is imperative that all reasoning and conclusions be drawn from the level of established science, and not on assumptions, preconceived prejudices, or analogy. This is the concept of first principles. Fundamental truths upon which any hypothesis or theory is based must conform to both rational consistency and empirical observation. Any deviation from these principles will often lead to false conclusions.
If any of the parameters upon which a theory is based fails to conform to both rational consistency and empirical observation, then this theory must be discarded as incorrect.
So what does that mean? It means that all conclusions must be first based on rational consistency of what can be possible as defined by the accepted laws of physics, chemistry and biology. That doesn’t mean that it is possible, only that it can be possible. Is it rational? Can it happen? If so, then the first condition of establishing correctness is satisfied. If not, then we can immediately dismiss it as incorrect…
Applying first principles to a root canal procedure and risk analysis
So how do we apply this to our analysis of the risks involved with root canal-treated teeth?
Currently accepted beliefs and accepted truths, such as the American Association of Endodontists (Dentists who specialize in performing root canals) assertion that root canal teeth cannot cause or contribute to systemic disease and do not leak bacteria and toxins systemically, must be distilled to the first principles upon which this claim is based.
We first must define all of the properties of root canal teeth. Then, we can ask the question on how these objective properties of root canal teeth relate to known biological and physical principles. We continue the analysis from the ground up until we reach a logical conclusion. Then, we test this conclusion with direct observation.
Let’s look at the role of root canal teeth and heart disease. It has been established that a main driving factor in cardiovascular disease and heart attack is inflammation and the resulting damage to the lining of the coronary artery (endothelium). We know that infection and bacterial toxins are one source of this inflammation and endothelial damage. But, how does a root canal contribute to cardiovascular disease?
It is established that all root canals remain infected and become more infected over time. The American Dental Association has acknowledged this. It is also true that these bacteria produce potent exotoxins. Dr. Boyd Haley has demonstrated the presence of potent toxins leaching directly out from the root canal tooth root.
The untold truth about a root canal procedure
The American Association of Endodontists states that toxins are not released from root canal teeth. It claims that both bacteria and toxins that are inside the tooth remain “entombed” within the tooth and that they do not travel systemically to other sites in the body. And if bacteria do make their way out of a root canal tooth this organization further asserts that the infection will remain local and not travel to distant sites in the body…
All root canal teeth remain infected and become more infected over time.
Pathogenic bacteria inside the root canal-treated tooth produce potent exotoxins that leak out of the tooth and travel systemically.
Bacteria inside the root canal tooth leak out of the tooth into the adjacent bone and can travel to distant sites of the body.
The immune system does not always eliminate these pathogenic bacteria.
Bacteria from root canal-treated teeth have been found in distant sites of the body such as coronary artery plaque, pericardial fluid in coronary diseases patients, and in ruptured cerebral aneurysms. This has been positively confirmed by documenting the presence of the DNA unique to root canal pathogens at these sites.
By using first principles analysis, we can conclude that root canal teeth do spread both bacteria and bacteria-produced exotoxins systemically throughout the body, and that these toxins and bacteria may cause or contribute to a variety of systemic diseases.

You have been told that sunlight causes cancer. Now they say that the Vitamin D from sunlight is vital to life and that it is the free radicals from sun lotions and sunscreen that cause cancer. I say, sunshine in moderation – which means enjoy the sun but be careful not to burn. I use nature’s offering to skin health: aloe vera – with no additives.
A new study finds vitamin D — the ‘sunlight vitamin’ — strikes to the very heart of breast cancer malignancy.
Breast cancer is not what most people think. Beneath the intimidating statistics that make it seem like a juggernaut of inevitability or a time bomb of genetic determinism ready to go off in the asymptomatic breasts of millions of women, a far more complex conversation is occurring among clinicians and researchers concerning the true nature and causes of cancer, and why conventional therapies fail to turn the tide against the second highest cause of death in the Western world. To fully appreciate this, one must go to the first hand research itself.
For instance, a new study published in The Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology identifies  an overlooked root cause of breast cancer (cancer stem cells), as well as a natural intervention that has yet to be incorporated into the conventional standard of cancer care.
Titled, “Vitamin D compounds reduce mammosphere formation and decrease expression of putative stem cell markers in breast cancer,” the new study brings to the forefront the role of breast cancer stem cells (BSCs) in breast tumor formation and their progression towards malignancy and treatment resistance. For many decades it was assumed that cancer results from DNA-damaged cells succumbing to fundamentally chaotic processes, ‘going rogue’ and reproducing clonally (making identical copies of one another), without an acknowledgment of the different types of cells that comprise tumors. The most salient difference is between the cancer stem cells (sometimes referred to as ‘mother’ cells) which are capable of theoretically infinite self-renewal and produce all the differentiated ‘daughter’ cells in a tumor colony, which themselves are not capable of living indefinitely. It is actually the existence of the much smaller number of cancer stem cells which causes cancer recurrence, as they are not only resistant to conventional chemotherapy and radiation, but their numbers can actually be increased (enriched) by these two ‘therapies.’ Therefore, any cancer therapy that ignores the cancer stem cell subpopulation in favor of killing the non-tumorigenic daughter cells in order to ‘debulk’ the tumor (i.e. shrink it), will not result in destroying the root of the cancer. To the contrary, it can generate the illusion of ‘remission’ while in fact making the remaining tumor colony far more malignant, setting up the conditions for aggressive recurrence years later…

Lissa Rankin, MD is an OB/GYN physician, author, keynote speaker, consultant to health care visionaries, professional artist, and founder of the women’s health and wellness community OwningPink.com. Discouraged by the broken, patriarchal health care system, she left her medical practice in 2007 only to realize that you can quit your job, but you can’t quit your calling. This epiphany launched her on a journey of discovery that led her to become a leader in the field of mind/body medicine, which she blogs about at OwningPink.com and is writing about in her third book Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof You Can Heal Yourself (Hay House, 2013).
She teaches both patients and health care professionals how to make the body ripe for miracles by healing the mind and being healthy in all aspects of life, not just by promoting healthy behaviors like good nutrition, exercise, and adequate sleep, but by encouraging health and authenticity in relationships, work, creative expression, spirituality, sexuality, finances, and living environment. She is leading a revolution to feminize how health care is received and delivered by encouraging collaboration, fostering self-healing, reconnecting health care and spirituality, empowering patients to tap into the mind’s power to heal the body, and encouraging women not to settle for being merely well, but to strive for living vital, joyful, authentic lives full of "mojo."
When not spreading the word, she chills out, paints, does yoga, and hikes in Marin County, CA with her husband and daughter.
The future of medicine rests on the the fundamental right we all have to use things that spring from the Earth naturally as healing agents. Why should cannabis, used for at least 10000 years by humankind to alleviate suffering, be excluded from this inexorable mandate?
The politics of cannabis are exceedingly complex, and yet the truth is simple: this freely growing plant heals the human body – not to mention provides food, fuel, clothing and shelter, if only we will let it perform its birthright. In a previous article, we investigated the strange fact that the human body is in many ways pre-designed, or as it were, pre-loaded with a receptiveness to cannabis’ active compounds — cannabinoids — thanks to its well documented endocannabinoid system.
The notion that marijuana has no ‘medicinal benefits’ is preposterous, actually. Since time immemorial it has been used as a panacea (‘cure-all’). In fact, as far back as 2727 B.C., cannabis was recorded in the Chinese pharmacopoeia as an effective medicine, and evidence for its use as a food, textile and presumably as a healing agent stretch back even further, to 12 BC.
But the medical-industrial complex in the U.S. does not want you to use these freely growing compounds. They threaten its very business model and existence. Which is why it synergizes so naturally with the burgeoning privatized prison sector, which now has the dubious title of having the highest incarceration rate in the world. The statistics don’t lie:
“far surpassing any other nation. For every 100,000 Americans, 743 citizens sit behind bars. Presently, the prison population in America consists of more than six million people, a number exceeding the amount of prisoners held in the gulags of the former Soviet Union at any point in its history.”

Thirty years ago, I knew an oncologist (cancer doctor) who was researching cancer cures. We were walking on the beach on the first warm day in spring – hundreds of others were also doing the same – and I asked him to tell me about his project. What he told me reminded me of books I’d read: “Laetrile, Nature’s Answer to Cancer” and “World without Cancer”.
“That’s wonderful!” I said, “you are going to find it!”
“How do you know?” he asked.
“Because that’s Laetrile,” I responded.
He stopped dead and stood like a stone statue while people walked by us. He stared silently into space. He seemed to be in a trance. I could not get his attention. Finally, he spoke in a very quiet voice. “They’ll destroy me…” he said.
I asked “Who? Who will destroy you?” It took him several minutes to answer.
“The AMA will destroy me,” … and he repeated that several times.
On the walk back to my apartment, he told me that he had been on a committee at the National Institutes of Health, responsible for testing Laetrile. The test? Only this:
The head of the committee walked in the door while they all sat around a big table, licked his finger and put it in a small bowl of Laetrile in the middle of the table, tasted it and spat it out. “That’s CYANIDE!” he said loudly.
That was it! No other test was performed. Laetrile was outlawed. My friend knew the vicious politics of medicine and science. His research also stopped dead in its tracks. He changed specialties. Ironically, my friend had been unknowingly reinventing the wheel.
If he had felt safe to announce his findings to the world, there would no longer be a cancer epidemic. If the pharmaceutical and medical industries sincerely valued life over profits and wanted to prevent and cure cancer, they could. My mother would still be alive.
The pharmaceutical industry would like you to avoid seeds, nuts and beans, dark green leafy greens, etc, because if you don’t get a little bit of “nature’s answer to cancer”, you will be a great source of revenue for them. The cancer epidemic still rages in the US because we eat sweet, salty, sour, but avoid the bitter flavor. I learned from those books to eat my apple seeds, lemon seeds, grapefruit seeds. And it appears that once I’ve had enough, I no longer eat them. The body is wise.. Read those books. When you eat an apple, eat the seeds. It might be the seeds that keep the doctor away.
Just because something fits in your mouth and can be swallowed, does not make it “food”. Food is something nature grows, that supports health and life. Aspartame is a “food additive”, made by scientists in laboratories. “Food additives” do not support health and life and aspartame is not a food.
There are alternatives to artificial sweeteners. Do an internet search for “stevia”. You can grow a stevia plant in your garden or house and use leaves in your tea or smoothies. Stevia is also sold in powdered form and in flavored drops. There are many healthy sweeteners. Sugar or honey are superior to artificial sweeteners. Fructose — especially “high fructose corn syrup” apparently also has problems. Research.
Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World is an excellent movie. Also, here is some information from Dr. Mercola on the very real dangers of aspartame. When your health is involved, do not be shy to ask questions… your health, happiness, and maybe even your life, depend on your discernment. If a profit motive is part of the equation, ask even more questions. Always find the healthiest alternative to anything that threatens your health.
