Amalgam And Root Canals

Amalgam fillings are made up of about 50% mercury.

Mercury poisoning has so many symptoms, I can’t even bother listing them all, but here is a list. It can have negative effects on the nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, damage your immune system, negatively effect the cardiovascular system and so forth.

Mercury in the body is linked to Alzheimer’s and even unborn children have mercury measured in their brains, if their mothers had mercury fillings done.

In this experiment you can see the Mercury gassing off the teeth. ‘Smoking teeth’, now that’s just disgusting.

And can this be my dentist please?! This video shows how amalgam fillings can be removed safely.
I wan’t to get my last amalgam fillings removed, but removing them safely is so expensive and not many dentists offer it.

I’ve heard about the health risks mercury poses, I mean it’s a pretty obvious one and I heard root canals aren’t good for you either, but I never really properly checked out why.

This is like one of the only videos I didn’t nearly fall asleep to while watching it.

Apparently you can get infections, that can give you heart problems and all sorts of problems from the bacteria trapped in the tooth that causes infections.

And have you heard of coconut oil pulling before? I hadn’t, until I checked for these other oral health videos. I might give that a try.. can’t do any harm!

So, obviously you wanna avoid metals in your mouth or anywhere in your body if you can. But yeah, I still have to look more into that. Some doctors recommend to not even use metal in crowns or even titanium posts for implants. You really gotta do extensive research to know what your getting and the health risks it may involve.

The Beautiful Truth

I’d really recommend watching this documentary.

The style is a bit different, sometimes it sounds more like an educational movie for children. I like it because it covers lots of different things about health, like mercury in fillings, msg, aspartame and how to cure cancer by changing your diet. Which is pretty amazing if it works!

Ok, enjoy and have a nice weekend!

Natural Painkiller

Seems to me that a lot of natural remedies are basically food. Interesting, right?!

The guys youtube channel looks interesting too. I will definitely be checking it out, might learn a couple of things!

I’d love to try this formula as I got excrutiating muscle ache at the moment. Unfortunately I don’t own a blender. Ah well, might just have to cut up some citrus and eat it with some cayenne pepper..

You got any great herbal remedies? Preferably made from stuff in your pantry?

Valerian and Echinacea or ‘What the hell is wrong with doctors?’

Rearranging my pantry last weekend i came across some herbal medicine i used to take. One bottle of valerian and one of echinacea. I used to take the valerian against insomnia, it’s supposed to be stress and anxiety releaving and the echinacea i took when i had a cold, to strengthen the immune system.

Because i felt a bit run down and stressed anyways and because i wanted to use up to bottles i decided to start taking some of it. I don’t drink alcohol at all, and they are in a ethanol solution, so i usually put them into a freshly brewed tea, to get rid off that. The valerian, if i take lots of it, makes me really woozy, but that wears off real quick, so when i take it i need to try to sleep asap. I haven’t had any side effects from taking natural medicine, but just do some research before you try them.

Now, why do i take natural medicine? Coz i don’t take any pills, Ever. Ok, in the last ten years i took pain killer on two occasions to get rid off some tootache, coz i couln’t afford a dentist. Other than that, never.

I hate it that it has become so normal to take all these meds at the slightest occasion, that most doctors don’t even really care about you as a person anymore and just give you a prescription and that, depending on what country you live in, the pharmaceutical industry is really tied up with doctors and gives them incentives to push their shitty products onto their customers, uhm, ..i mean patients. Big Pharma, is another post for later and it’s gonna be a bit of an angry one!

That’s the reason i also don’t trust doctors and because of my personal experience. Let me tell you a story which might make it easier to explain why.

About ten years ago i got a pretty bad cold and i had to see the doctor to get one of these papers you need for work and the conversation went kind of like this.

After asking me about my symptoms and not even looking up..

doctor: I’m gonna prescribe you these antibiotics for your cold..

me: Uhm.., is there anything else i could take against my cold? Anything a bit more.. uhm, harmless..?

doctor: Ok, i’ll give you a prescription for these pills and some drops..

me: .. well,  ok,  is there anything else i could take, anything natural? Like, if i don’t wanna take pills?!

doctor:(giving me the blank stare) Well, you can also drink herbal and sage tea and just stay in bed.

me: Thanks, i’ll rather do that then! I won’t need any of the prescriptions.

When i went out of the doctors office i was like “Wtf, just happened?” I had to haggle down a doctor to give me less pills? A doctor who wanted to give me ANTIBIOTICS just told me i could just have a good sleep and do with some HERBAL TEA?! Have you ever looked into or experienced the side effects of antibiotics, the shit is strong! And also you can’t even treat colds with antibiotics, you can have side effects, like yeast infections and diarrhoea and if you take them too often your body can develope a resistance. 

Needless to say i also felt quite uncomfortable in that situation. Doctors obviously have this aura of authority, “We know what’s best for you, don’t question us!”, about them. I don’t wanna bag all doctors obviously, i just wanna bag the whole health system..

I’m not saying the health system we got in Western countries is all bad and obviously poorer countries have it even worse, sure.. When you have a medical emergency, go to the hospital! Some of the procedures and cures are live saving and shit.

What i’m saying is, don’t trust everything they tell you, do some of your own research about maybe more harmless, less invasive alternatives. Even if it’s just that you know what alternatives are out there for common sicknesses like cold, flu, headaches and nausea.If you’ve got something serious, ask other doctors, people who had the same sickness, maybe go to a self-help group.

And doctors also bear the responsibility not to turn into complete pill pushers for the pharmaceutical industry. And to stop cutting around on people at the smallest opportunity!

Do you take a lot of medicines? What are your experiences with the health system? What are your favourite alternative medicines?
