Are Hidden Dental Infections Making You Sick?

hidden dental infections.png

When we think about chronic illnesses, such as cancer, heart disease and strokes, we tend to think about their cause. What can make us develop these diseases? Diet, lack of exercise, bad habits etc. Which to a certain extent is true. But what about the link between poor oral health and disease?

In the 1970s, Dr Ralph R. Steinman extensively researched tooth decay. He found, in an animal study on rats, that when a florescent dye was injected into the stomach, this same dye appeared in the inner chamber of the teeth within an incredible six minutes. Within an hour, the dye was visible within the tooth enamel.

This research provided conclusive evidence that there is an interaction between the oral cavity and how the body metabolises compounds. In this case, the compound was a dye, but the same link can be applied to nutrients from our food, and toxins from a poor diet, smoking, alcohol and drugs, legal or otherwise.

Later research demonstrated a link between specific teeth and specific organs. Together, this research showed a connection between poor oral health and chronic disease. Cancer, heart disease, lung disease, strokes, Lyme disease, MS, ALS and lupus were all linked in part with inadequate cleaning of the teeth and gums.

Achieving Better Dental Health

Eating a healthy diet and making time to exercise and de-stress are all things we can do to help protect us from illness – but just as important, is good dental hygiene. Good dental hygiene is dependent on several factors, not just a correct brushing technique.

What we eat and how we metabolise nutrients so that we don’t have deficiencies is just as crucial. Being exposed to toxic levels of heavy metals and having hidden bacterial infections also play a role in poor dental health.

This means that we have control over the health of our mouths. To maintain our oral health, we can adopt the following habits:

  • Eat a diet high in nutrient-dense, mineral-rich foods

  • Take steps, either on your own or with a specialist, to ensure these nutrients and minerals are properly absorbed and assimilated by the body

  • Ensure that you have a good brushing technique that cleans the gums as well as the teeth

  • Use a tongue scraper each morning to remove bacterial build up

  • Opt for natural dental products to reduce the toxic load on the body

  • Join a holistic dental surgery and replace harmful amalgam fillings and crowns with non-toxic ones

  • Learn oil pulling and gum massage techniques to reduce the risk of bacterial infections

Hidden Mouth Infections and Chronic Illness

Since infections of the mouth can lead to chronic health conditions, good oral hygiene is crucial. But some mouth infections can hide away under crowns and implanted teeth or within root canals, jaw cavities and in the sockets of poorly removed teeth.

These infections may be symptomless and cause no pain or discomfort. As Science Daily reports, symptomless infections at the root tip of the teeth are very common and are often picked up during routine dental exams and x-rays. These can lead to heart disease and other conditions.

Brushing alone may not be enough to help keep bacteria at bay. So here’s two simple techniques you can learn that can help you achieve a healthier mouth – oil pulling and gum massage.

Oil Pulling

Oil pulling is an ancient dental health practice. It was first used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine to help prevent decay, freshen the breath, treat sore gums and eliminate dirt and bacteria.

Studies show that oil pulling has a rightful place in today’s oral hygiene practices. One, in 2017, concluded that oil pulling is “effective in controlling plaque”. Another in 2009 found that oil pulling not only reduces plaque, but reduces the bacteria that cause plaque and gingivitis (bleeding gums).

Streptococcus mutans is a bacterium commonly associated with dental cavities and poor oral health. A study in 2016 demonstrated that oil pulling significantly decreased the levels of this bacteria with no notable difference between these results and that of a control group using a common chlorhexidine mouthwash.

Oil pulling can also help reduce inflammation, whiten the teeth, prevent bad breath and detoxify the body.

How to Practice Oil Pulling

Oil pulling is usually carried out using coconut oil. Place a teaspoon of oil in your mouth and swish it around using slow pulling motions for 15-20 minutes. You can do this whilst in the shower and performing other bathroom routines.

Once the oil has become milky and thin, spit the oil into some tissue and throw it in the bin. Don’t be tempted to spit it down the sink as this can lead to blockages. The used oil will contain dirt and bacteria, so avoid swallowing it too.

Adding essential oils will make this even more beneficial.

Here’s our favourite oil pulling recipe:

50ml fractionated coconut oil
5 drops peppermint oil
3 drops thyme oil
3 drops tea tree oil
3 drops clove oil
3 drops lemon oil

The only time we would not recommend oil pulling is when you have not yet removed amalgam fillings from your teeth. This is because doing so would release further heavy metals into your system.

Gum Massage

Gum massage, using coconut or olive oil, stimulates blood flow to the gums which promotes healing of sore gums and improves overall teeth and gum health. These oils are naturally antimicrobial which helps prevent bacterial build up and the action of massage removes bacterial biofilm that may build up on the teeth. It’s also useful if oil pulling doesn’t suit you.

A study in 2014 found that gum massage using oil significantly reduced bacteria levels, plaque and gingivitis. What’s more, these results were again the same as those who used chlorhexidine mouthwash as a control.

To massage your gums, add two drops of ozonated olive oil to your finger and gentle massage the length of your gums and all of your teeth, using a circular motion. Stop if you feel any pain. When you’ve finished, rinse with warm water, spit into a tissue and throw it away.

Considering all of this research it is vital for all of us to give greater attention to our oral health but even more important for those already suffering from a chronic illness.

For those who already know they have issues in their mouth, we now offer gum ozone injections here at our clinic in Cyprus to help target direct areas of infection in the gum. If you would like to know more about this new ozone therapy available at Neomed, please get in touch.

Using Essential Oils to Combat Mould In Your Home

Cleaning-Mould-With-Essential-oils.jpg

Mould is a serious issue for anyone with a chronic illness or a compromised immune system especially affecting individuals with Lyme Disease and associated infections. Mould can also stop any treatments you are undergoing from working so it really is important to take measures to rid your home of mould.

Natural solutions are favored by most of our guests here at Neomed so we wanted to give you some ways to combat mould growth with the use of essential oils.

Plants naturally contain powerful therapeutic properties to protect themselves from harmful substances such as bacteria and mould so it is no surprise that essential oils, which are potent distillations extracted from these plants, exhibit these abilities.

Essential oils with anti-fungal properties include Thyme, Oregano, Clove, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Lemongrass, Geranium, Cinnamon, Basil and Dill. Of course different essential oils are more effective for different types of mould. For example clove essential oil is particularly useful against black mould (Aspergillus niger). You may have to experiment over a period of time to see which essential oil is most effective in your home.

When cleaning mould you always wear protective gear over your skin and clothes including a mouthguard and if you are already unwell or are sensitive to mould, find someone else to do this for you.

We recommend not to use a spray bottle as spraying mould can actually make fine particles of mould airborne and you want to contain the problem as much as possible so instead use a small basin to prepare your solution and a sponge or cloth to douse the area, leave for 10 minutes and then wipe clean.

Essential Oil Mould Cleaning Solution Recipe

250ml Distilled White Vinegar or Isopropyl Alcohol
250ml Water
30 Drops of Essential Oil (using 15 drops of essential oil per 250ml of liquid)

Note when using essential oils on wood or paint it can peeling as they are very potent so use caution. If you have particularly stubborn areas which need scrubbing you can use baking soda, combined with water (50/50 ratio) and add essential oils of your choice to the mixture.

Diffusing essential oils with a nebulising diffuser is also another daily remedy to purifying the air in your home and combating the effects of mould.

Of course there is many ways to combat mould in your home and the above is just a few suggestions. Sometimes mould is such a deep rooted issue in a home that the only way to escape the effects is to move to a different home where possible.

Essential Oils to Support Parasite Cleansing Protocols

essential-oils-for-parasites.jpg

Essential Oils to Support Parasite Cleansing Protocols

Did you know that essential oils are physiologically active? This means they directly influence the body. Unique structural features of essential oils allow them to be active both on the surface of cells and within cells. They are able to cross the cell membrane (the protective barrier around a cell) and trigger modifications in the function of that cell. Once applied essential oils can reach all the cells in your body within 30 minutes. Knowing which essential oil to use to support various stages of parasite healing is important.

When parasites have embedded themselves deep within your intestinal tract and in your organs, you need to be able to reach these invaders with substances that both kill these parasites and expel them from the body.

Here are some of our top tips for home care.

Clove Essential Oil

Clove essential oil is a must-have for anyone suffering from any form of illness. Among many other benefits clove essential oil has been demonstrated to possess antimicrobial, antifungal, antiviral, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-histamine, analgesic and antiseptic properties.

Clove essential oil contains one of the most powerful natural germicidal agents, known as eugenol along with caryophyllene, which is a powerful antimicrobial agent. These agents travel through your system, killing microscopic parasites, parasitic larvae and eggs. Hence, making this essential oil a great addition to any parasite cleansing protocol.

You can apply this directly, 1 to 2 drops diluted to 1 tablespoon of carrier oil, to your abdomen and around your liver and kidneys to help kill of the parasites and eggs in these areas. Again, you can follow this with a water enema to help flush out your colon.

Also, we recommend using clove oil with your castor oil packs to make these more effective.

Oregano Essential Oil

Oregano is a natural anti-parasitic. It contains two active antiparasitic and antiviral compounds carvacrol and thymol which are well known and studied for successfully limiting the amount of parasites and viruses in our bodies. Oregano is a hot oil, very strong but very effective. Because of its strength, you need to ensure you dilute this with a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil or almond oil.

To help kill off parasites you can apply 1 to 2 drops diluted to one tablespoon of carrier oil and apply to abdomen. We recommend that you follow this with a water enema within 4-5 hours of application.

Myrrh Essential Oil

Myrrh is a less commonly known antiparasitic essential oil. However certain medications today used for killing parasites contain myrrh. Also, history shows that it was commonly included in mixtures used to treat worms during the 4th century BC.

Again, this can be applied to the abdomen along with a carrier oil to help kill off certain parasitic infections.

Other antiparasitic essential oils include:

Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, Thyme, Sage, Rosemary, Ginger, Neroli, Cedarwood, Peppermint, and Tea Tree Oil, among others.

Lemon Essential Oil

When parasites are dying within your body they start releasing all the toxins they have ingested while living within you. This can make you feel very unwell. Lemon essential oil helps to flush out all these toxins. It also supports your liver while you are detoxing.

First thing in the morning you can add 1 or 2 drops of Lemon essential oil to a glass of water. You can also apply directly to your abdomen diluted with a carrier oil. This is particularly effective if used directly on skin over your liver area.

Other essential oils to help expel parasites and toxins include:
Roman Chamomile, Turmeric, Bergamot and Basil essential oils.

All of these oils can be used topically on abdomen or on soles of feet diluted with a carrier oil.

Worm Expelling Night Time Tea Recipe

2 drops of Roman Chamomile essential oil
1 drop of Bergamot essential oil
1 Spoon of organic raw honey

Top with warm water not hot

The tips above are in addition to any anti-parasite protocol you may be on and cannot be relied on solely to cleanse your body of parasite infections.

Please, discontinue, if you have a strong reaction to essential oils. Always test your reaction to a new essential oil by adding a drop to back of your arm.

Purchasing Essential Oils

What is important to remember when buying essential oils, is that not all essential oils on the market are pure and therapeutic and will have the anti-parasitic effects as outlined above. Also a lot of essential oils on the market contain synthetic fillers and other other unnatural substances.
