Dental related nerve pain and illness are more common than anyone realizes. In 2012, I was fortunate to have a doctor who witnessed many nerve-pain, dental-related cases before and asked the question that changed my life, “Have you ever had a root canal?” If he had not stepped in, I would be in a wheelchair today, though I am never one to give up or stop looking for answers.
I had another very recent situation with a tooth and chronic nerve pain in my left shoulder area. For almost two years, I dealt with what I thought was an injury from my dog, Barney, pulling on the leash. The pain was so bad, I couldn’t take a deep breath and I couldn’t use my left arm at all. I had to quit yoga, quit lifting any weight, and had to switch to the other arm to carry my purse and groceries. I lost sleep and lost my ability to concentrate. My adrenal glands took a beating again and illness crept in.
I had my teeth checked regularly throughout that time and all seemed okay. I had an MRI of my shoulder (inconclusive), my neck (inconclusive), had every theory thrown at me — it’s a rib, it’s the neck, it’s a tear in the shoulder area, it’s in the thoracic spine, and so on. Chiropractic helped, but not for more than a day. I tried physical therapy — which I couldn’t tolerate, laser therapy, massage therapy, ultrasound, traction, acupuncture, and on and on. I started suspecting it might be a tooth, but when I went for my next dental cleaning, all was well.
However, after that cleaning, the facial twitching I had begun having earlier in the year intensified and my left ear was killing me; then I started having nagging pain in my face, and I knew. I muscle tested myself and it showed the pain and twitching were from my only remaining wisdom tooth, upper left side. I consulted the tooth chart and confirmed that wisdom teeth correlate to the shoulder, neck, thoracic and rib area. I went to my alternative doctor and had her check it using NIS, NET (see below) and muscle testing. She narrowed it even further by finding it was a “root problem” with that tooth.
Finally an Answer!
I went to my dentist two days later, told him what we had found and he proceeded with a panoramic X-ray. It showed nothing suspicious. He is a holistic dentist, so he muscle tested and came to the same finding we did, but, perplexed by the clean pano X-ray, he took a bitewing X-ray to find out more. It showed a slight “reabsorption” of the root. My body was trying to reabsorb the tooth. (Gross!) He pulled it and guess what? The nerve pain in my shoulder stopped.
Once again, two years of suffering, which I suspect led to more major illness, all because of a tooth. I’m not certain why it didn’t show up as weak until now — I suspect it was due to the fact that it correlated with my husband dying, and our bodies will only show us what it most prominent.
My grief process with Ken, then our dog Barney several months later, overshadowed the mechanics of what was going on. I’ll explain in more detail the way muscle testing and quantum medicine works, but suffice it to say, it is like the onion I referred to earlier: layered, with emotions overruling mechanics.
Dr. Meinig & Dr. Price
Dr. George Meinig, D.D.S., root-canal specialist and author, published twenty-five years of research from Dr. Weston Price about the dangers of root canals and the delicate nature of dental issues in his book Root Canal Cover-Up. He writes about Dr. Price’s first case (around the year 1900) ,when he removed a tooth from a woman with severe arthritis and immediately implanted it under the skin of a rabbit. Within two days, the rabbit was crippled with arthritis and the woman found relief. He continued with smaller bits of teeth and many diseases until he was injecting tooth powder, always with the same results. One-hundred-percent of the time, heart disease transferred from infected patient to rabbits. Other diseases were about eighty percent — kidney disease, ALS/MS, arthritis, and autoimmune diseases such as Lupus, Crones, and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Dr. Price found that people with strong immune systems were able to stay healthy, despite having root canals. He also found that those healthy individuals, when faced with anything that overly stressed their immune systems, such as an accident, the death of a loved one, a severe illness or anything severely taxing, allowed the bacteria trapped in the teeth to escape into the body and cause any number of diseases, or a “failure of the body defense system.”
To perform root canals (41,000 in the United States daily as of 2012), dentists drill through the enamel and dentin to clean out the root pulp, which is all blood vessels and nerves hooked to your jawbone by the periodontal ligaments. Then the hollow root is filled and all the germs and bacteria living in the tooth and root get packed in with nowhere to go but up and out into your body.
There are miles of inaccessible, untreated tubules in which germs and toxins can hide, grow stronger, then mutate into super-bugs and pour into the body. These can travel to the heart, lungs, eyes, stomach, mouth, brain, nervous system and now, the latest research shows a strong link to cancer.
Link to Dental Issues & Cancer
Dr. Robert Jones, in a five-year study of three-hundred breast cancer cases, found ninety-three percent had root canals, seven percent had other dental issues and tumors always occurred on the same side of the body as the root canal or dental issue. Another physician, Dr. Josef Issels, treated terminal cancer patients for forty years and found ninety-seven percent had root canals.
Doctors and dentists who are knowledgeable about this topic recommend never having a root canal. Even if you are well after the procedure, during the aging process your immune system will naturally weaken, and trouble can start. If you have already had a root canal, have the tooth removed, even if it looks and feels fine, and replace it with a non-invasive option (bridge, partial, spider). During removal, make sure your dentist removes the tooth AND the dental ligament along with 1mm of the bony socket to reduce risk of bacteria from any infected tissue left behind.
So What’s the Solution?
If you have infected teeth that need to be extracted, get them out of your body and opt for false teeth (no implants) and watch chronic illness, and aches and pains dissipate or even disappear, and watch your health improve.
To find a biological dentist who will be aware of this procedure, visit toxicteeth.org, or search the internet for a holistic dentist in your area. True natural dentists tend to lay low to avoid backlash from the American Dental Association, and may only be found through word-of-mouth.
If you are living with chronic pain or auto-immune disease, a wise step would be to start checking your teeth. Even if you’ve never had a root canal, subtle dental issues can cause a myriad of life-altering symptoms and diseases. I am living proof that something as simple as a botched filling or a dying tooth can change a life forever.

If you suspect your teeth are making you ill:
Find a practitioner who performs any version of muscle testing or energy healing such as:
- Applied Kinesiology (AK)
- Total Body Modification (TBM)
- Neuro Emotional Technique (NET)
- Applied Psycho Neurology (APN)
- Autonomic Response Testing (ART)
- Neurolink (NIS)
- Touch for Health
These practitioners can help you discover if the pain is dental-related, then you can get further confirmation from the dentist and fix the issue. Generally, you will not find these people on the internet. Chiropractors commonly use AK, but the rest of the list usually practices quietly, so you’ll often find these amazing healers through networking. Once you witness your body showing you what’s wrong in ways that blood work will not, the healing will begin.
