I have not only read this book, but have also been a patient of Dr. Kulacz. Unfortunately, many detractors choose wishful thinking over verifiable, scientific fact. They pay for their ongoing denial with health troubles. Nobody wants to lose any teeth, but if the alternative is long term devastating health problems, the loss of a tooth is a small price to pay. I was in this category with both root canals and the related dental infections and they badly affected my health. Once removed I felt noticeably better. To further prove the case, the extracted tooth was sent to a lab for testing and the results confirmed serious infection. Study the subject and look at the evidnce and you will agree with me. Read all the related books as the evidence is overwhelming. Find one of the very few dentists around the country experienced in this protocol. PS, Most dentists know virtually nothing about any of this. It is therefore your health and your responsibility.

Who would have ever guessed that dental disease could have such a significant part in so many illnesses? For far to long dentistry and the rest of medicine have been totally separate fields. What is going on in your mouth is seen as having little relevance to the disease conditions going on the in the rest of the body. For to long dental school training has focused on saving your teeth at any cost.

"The Roots of Disease: Connecting Dentistry and Medicine" was written by two men. One of these men is a dentist and the other a cardiologist. For over a decade these two health care professionals have witnessed that the removal and complete healing of infected dental sites can often result in the total healing (or at least vast improvement) of other diseases in the body.

Have you ever been told that root canals harbor bacteria that infect the rest of your body causing displease? That this is also true of sites where wisdom teeth have been improperly removed? I wasn't able to regain my health until my dental issues were dealt with. I no longer have a stressed out immune system and the constant Candida that this resulted in.

This well written, thorough look at the health problems affected by oral infection is a must read for anyone interested in obtaining optimal health.

Very well thought out information. I find sometimes, alternative medcial practitioners have an "axe" to grind or an anti establishment bias. I found none of that in this book. This was based on logic, studies, and experience. I have suffered from a "root canal gone bad" for over a year before I discovered this information. All the doctors and dentists just shook their collective heads while I was being poisoned by an infected root canal tooth. Even after I had it removed, the problem continued. It had tranferred to my jaw and other areas of my jaw. Without this info, I do not know where I would be at this point. I am seeking the proper care and expect a great improvement.

I not only read this book, but I scheduled surgery with Dr. Kulacz to have my root canaled teeth removed shortly thereafter!
I suffered some health problems after having root canals and an extraction. Since having Dr. Kulacz perform the surgery, I am back to almost 100%. It's amazing. People, the information in this book is vital to you if you have had dental problems. For those of you considering having surgery with him, I found the entire staff very kind and caring. I had much drilling on both sides of my mouth, and yet did not need much pain meds afterward. It was my body's way of thanking me for getting rid of all the bacteria and toxins! I think this is the answer, folks!

Format: Paperback
Thank God for this book and Dr.Kulacz! A M.D. from the Cleveland Clinic told me about Dr.Kulacz and this book. When reading this book about some of the other patients I thought I was reading about myself. This book is as truthful as it gets about root canals , dental materials and proper procedures about extractions. This book is a must read for the people that suspect that their teeth may be one of the culprits to their health issues. Of course after reading this book I would think most sensible people would not take drastic action as to extract their own teeth ,as one person posted. I would love to stand outside of every dentist office and pass out this book to patients that are about to get a root canal. This book opens your eyes to the other side of root canals that your dentist will not tell you before the procedure. By the way your natural teeth are not better if they are giving you pain and lowering your immune system. You must read this book if you are searching for the truth about your teeth problems. Dr.Kulacz has integrity and morals which is what you would expect from any doctor. If I could I would rate this book higher than a five.

Format: Paperback
This book is excellent at 1) establishing evidence that there is a signifcant problem and 2) that the system is in full blown denial about it. I would recommend it to anyone who is curious about the downside of root canals. Root canals are covered extensively but amalgram toxicity is only briefly touched upon. A detailed explanation of cavitations(little bits of gangrenous tissue left from extracted teeth)is also covered. A extensive explanation of the status quo is given. There are biopsy reports, testimonials and scientific abstracts cited. The authors seem quite dedicated.
That said, I must admit I don't love this book. While I'm now convinced that a bad root canal can be deadly I didn't get any sense of proportion from the book. If every single root canal was as deadly as charged people would be keeling over right and left. I'm usually part of the "don't take a chance" coalition but the only alternative offered is extraction, and a particularly deep and extensive one at that. There was no emphasis on getting new research or better diagnostic tools. But what was really disturbing was the sense that teeth had no value. They are to be gotten rid of at the least sign of deep infection. And there is no section on dealing with good altenatives. The authors never really state what replaces the extracted teeth - dentures? implants? baby food?
All in all, if you suspect your teeth or dental work are "not quite right" despite a clean checkup this is a good read.
