"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.
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!
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.
