This month we’ve got a Tooth theme, and I’ve got a special homeopathic Tooth fairy to discuss the in and outs of treating your teeth in an effective way.
Elaine Lewis – a self-described rock chick from the States – but who’s also very famous for her practice in homeopathy and teaching on hpathy.com, was kind enough to share her insights on this delicate but how important subject.
Dear Elaine Lewis: what gave you the chip in the ear to give granules to cure toothache?
Well, obviously, my many dental problems. But I hope you noticed the quizzes where Kelly had issues with her teeth too and solved them with homeopathy. (I mentioned Elaine shares her wisdom on hpathy.com, the biggest homeopathy website out there – and she does it in the format of quizzes and tidbits).
Let’s be serious: who would think of exchanging their visits to the dentist for a few homeopathy granules?
Well, I guess when all they can do is give antibiotics which will upset your whole system, cause stomach pains, diarrhea and so on. And I think I showed in one of my quizzes–or “Tidbits”, more likely–that when I researched dental abscesses on youtube, they showed the dentist giving the patient the novocaine shot and the patient Screamed at the top of his lungs! I said, “That’s it, I’m out!”
Is it your favorite area of homeopathic practice?
I’ve used homeopathy to stop extremely painful situations–painful infections, abscesses, and so on.
I have learned that you can lance the abscess yourself with a sterile razor blade, make a 6C remedy out of the pus, take the remedy every 15 minutes until the abscess “pops” and it’s all over at that point and you can get back to your life. You should see one of my abscess articles for details: https://hpathy.com/homeopathy-papers/tidbits-78-elaine-lewis-dds/
It’s perhaps an area where I’ve had dramatic results, life-changing results; but then again, we’re always performing miracles, all the time! So it’s hard to say.
Can we recommend that our readers cancel their dental appointment?
No! You can’t do that, because the plaque must come off or you’re asking for trouble! You just can’t stop going to the dentist, but you can try to educate your dentist about certain issues. I have always gone to the dentist. The problem is, for every problem they solve, they create another one.
So what are those issues? Any solution?
The plaque has to be scraped off the teeth or gum disease will be the result! And cavities have to be filled!
But my complaint is this: the dental hygienist needs to be (but isn’t) constantly disinfecting the cleaning implement with alcohol, otherwise, he or she is just spreading infection from one tooth to the other! How do they not know this? It’s so obvious! They should be disinfecting the gums around each tooth as they go!
We know they’re always drawing blood, this infected blood is getting all over the mouth, shouldn’t they be disinfecting the gum line with a syringe of antibacterial solution, like baking soda and peroxide, after each tooth they clean? Well, of course they should; but are they doing it? No! It’s no different from when Semmelweis, in 1847, warned doctors that they should be washing their hands between patients but did anyone think that was a good idea??? Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!! So now we’ve got dental hygienists doing the same thing! Idiots!
So here’s what we have with dentists, we have, on the one hand, that they work miracles, while on the other hand, they’re contributing to gum disease and tooth loss.
Anything else, Elaine? Above all, don’t be embarrassed.
Here’s another mistake they make: not cleaning the plaque off the distal side of the distal molars! Now I know you don’t know what I’m talking about. The distal–from the word “distant” or far away–means the part of the tooth that’s the farthest from the center, namely, the teeth in the back, or the side that’s facing the corners of your mouth; and by “back” I mean the side of your molar that’s facing your wisdom tooth, or abutting your wisdom tooth if it had erupted. So your distal molar is the molar farthest away from the center with nothing, no tooth, behind it, and the distal side is the farthest side. That side rarely gets cleaned or scraped, it’s ignored. A periodontal pocket starts forming there, a repository of bacteria, it ultimately engulfs the whole tooth, and it has to come out. Then the same scenario ensues with the new distal molar! Before you know it, your molars are all gone. So you might want to shock your dentist by saying, “Don’t forget to clean the distal side of my distal molars.” That should cause his jaw to drop!
Oh how I love Elaine’s puns!
Now, since they are completely clueless about disinfecting as they go with a syringe of antibacterial solution like baking soda and peroxide, you should drop a pellet of Calendula 30C in the little cup of water they provide so you can rinse with it frequently. Calendula is an antiseptic and it might save you from all the mistakes the hygienist is making.
Here’s another thing you can do–here’s what I do. I take a dose of Staphysagria 10M before each cleaning starts. Why? Staphysagria is for the exquisite pain of teeth cleaning! Perhaps children don’t have this pain. They’re not old enough. They don’t have the sensitive teeth that adults have. But a lot of adults do! So, I always take Calendula and Staphysagria with me to the dentist.
Now, another thing. Root canals? A very bad idea! They might appear to have saved a tooth for a while, but, they can never scrape all the bacteria out of the root, and the remaining ones become entombed and cause big problems. You will eventually lose that tooth, it will become super-infected and put adjoining teeth in jeopardy.
Silver fillings? They’re full of mercury! This is going to set you off on a life-time of dental problems. Ask for “composite” fillings instead.
I love Elaine, she doesn’t mince words! And she’s smart, too!
Thanks to Elaine for kindly sharing some of her dental wisdom with our readers, hoping to see her again soon on our blog for another crisp topic!
