Notes from the Autoimmune Summit
This is not a transcript but my cliff notes from listening to these summits. The speakers are doctors, nutritionists and specialists in their field of health practicing functional medicine. They are not your normal health tips but medical reasons you may be experiencing health problems. For additional information see links below.

Patients fly in from around the country and the world to see this dentist.
A biological dentist uses a blood test to see what materials will be compatible with the patient, also testing serum levels for toxicity and nutrient deficiencies. Cleaning up the mouth can relieve a lot of diseases. Sometimes using acupressure and I.V.vit C in the protocol. Tests for what bacteria are in the plaque below the gum line are done before any procedure.
In 1976 copper was added to amalgams which made the mercury 50x more potent, other ingredients are silver, tin, zinc and mercury makes up 50%. Mercury is the most toxic substance that continually releases and off gasses forever. Chewing and heating enhances toxicity. This is a neurodegenerative substance that can lead to autoimmune diseases.
Nickle in dentistry is another known carcinogen found in caps and crowns, stainless steel is 70% nickle. Dead teeth and root canals are very toxic and can lead to osteonecrosis of the jawbone from surgery, extractions and infections.
Once you remove tooth nerve and blood supply the body can no longer send white blood cells to fight infection. This is in an area ripe for bacterial growth of the bacteria left behind that migrate throughout the body and are highly toxic to us. Some dentists use ozone to kill the bacteria in that area but no study has been done on how long it works and needs to be re-injected periodically.
With implants you must check the state of your immune system first and NO titanium, zirconium implants are more biocompatible. In the next 3-7 years we should have available dental stem cell therapy using your stem cells to regrow a bad or missing tooth, this is already being done with pigs.
Some people have as many as 20 different metals all causing electrical currents that conflict with our normal current. With one patient their seizures stopped after cleaning up the metals in the mouth.
Mercury fillings taken out of your mouth must be put into a special container and picked up by hazmat. Not admitted is dentists have a very high number of suicides and depression from the mercury exposure causing neurological and autoimmune disorders.
When extracting mercury fillings the proper protocol is using a rubber dam, high volume suction, making sure it doesn’t go into the public water supply, a negative ionizer in the room, hepa air filter, IV vit C to detoxify the mercury and amp up our glutathione, infrared sauna and DMSA a chemical chelator administered by doctor only. Heal the gut with C plus glutathione before detoxing heavy metals, Fluoride is the most active on the periodic table that competes with our absorption of iron causing thyroid disease.
Braces contain nickle and guards contain some also effecting those with a nickle sensitivity.
Water picks are better that flossing and can be used with hydrogen peroxide 1 oz-7 oz of water. You can also do an apple cider mix or a vit C mix. Brush with baking soda 80% plus 20% salt, dip brush in the peroxide then dip in baking soda and brush. You can also add peppermint oil for taste. Earth paste would be a good store brand.
