Remedies to Help At the Dentist

Remedies to Help at the Dentist

Hold Arnica 12C or 30C and Ledum 12C or 30C in your pocket when you have dental work done. Why do this? Arnica is good for shock and trauma and controlling bleeding. Ledum is good for puncture wounds, such as you get when the dentist administers anesthesia or drills in your mouth. This tiny little hint can make your experience in the dental chair much easier than expected, and hasten your recovery at home.

Use Calendula tincture or the 12C, 30C or 200C strengths of the remedy to help heal your mouth after a dental extraction, filling, drilling, or any other work. You can dissolve a few drops of Calendula tincture in warm water and soak a gauze pad with it and put it on the site of the dental work a few times a day for two days. If you do not have the tincture at home, you can use Calendula in any potency you have at home in place of the tincture.

Xray esposure: One of our biggest exposures to Xray radiation happens when we go to the dentist. We also get Xray exposure when we travel and walk through the scanning devices at the airport. There are things we can do to reduce the negative impact of this radiation, which adversely affects the pineal gland, and who knows what else?

First of all make sure that the dentist protects you with a lead apron and neck covering. What you can do homeopathically to clear your system from the Xray exposure is to purchase Radium bromatum 12C, 30C or 200C, and/or Xray 12C, 30C, or 200C. These remedies can also help reverse the negative effects of radiation therapy. You do not have to take the remedy orally. You can just put the remedy vial that you have chosen in your pocket and leave it there for half an hour or an hour, or however long you feel that you need it intuitively, and it will do its healing work. This is what I call taking a Pocket Dose of the remedy, which is one of my favorite ways to bring people, including myself, under the influence of a remedy. The wonderful thing about it is that it works.

Protecting yourself from exposure to fluoride: I am extremely sensitive to fluoride, and had a very serious fluoride poisoning experience when my dentist did a routine dental cleaning for me about seven years ago. It took me a very long time to recover my health after that. I have a new dentist now and I told him and the office staff that I am allergic to fluoride in order to make sure that they don’t expose me to it. They were amazed that this could be the case, because they believed that fluoride is safe to use and is nontoxic. To me this is pretty darn amazing. Fluoride is one of the most controversial substances known to man, rivaling Cannabis in its controversial use. There is information on its toxic effects going back generations, so why don’t dentists know about this. I believe it is because they bury their heads very very deep in the sand. (That’s not to say that I don’t love my dentist).

I have heard that fluoride is found in excess in the pineal gland, which is a very important endocrine gland for many reasons, including sleep regulation. Its spiritual function in the body is crucial, and one of its central spiritual functions is to give people a sense of connection to others, their family, and themselves.

It is well known in homeopathy that the remedy Fluoric acid causes people to lose the feeling of connection to family. Hitler used to fluoridate the water in Germany, because he knew this, and it assisted in destroying the moral sense of the people, and dissolving family connections. Here we are in the United States doing exactly the same thing. There is no paucity of information in the internet on the negative effects of fluoride. You can also find information, saying that it is the greatest thing on earth for the teeth. So where is the truth. The fact that there is a controversy means that fluoride is not something innocuous like a pear or an apple. It is something that has a dark side as well as a light side.

What about the connection between fluoride and bones? Can the long term use of fluoridated toothpaste, and drinking fluoridated city water have something to do with the prevalence of osteoporosis? It is worth thinking about. Your dentist is not going to know about any of this, so don’t count on your dentist to be concerned about your overall health outside of his craftsmanship in the office.

What you can do to protect yourself is do not use fluoridated toothpaste products. Use a water filtration system that filters for fluoride. Ask your dentist to clean your teeth without fluoride. Refuse the dental polishing stuff that the dentist will offer, because this has fluoride in it. Here is a link to an article that I wrote the day after I wrote this one.

Protecting Yourself from Dental Anesthesia: I had to have teeth pulled recently, and I asked the oral surgeon what anesthesia he was going to use. He wanted to use two different anesthesia drugs: lidocaine and another drug. I never use anesthesia when I have dental work unless it is something quite serious, because I don’t like the way I feel when the anesthesia wears off. It puts me in a dark space that usually takes about three days to clear off. I wanted to avoid that happening this time, so I asked the dentist to give me the anesthesia to take home, so that I could turn it into a 12C homeopathic remedy. This is exactly what I did, and I am happy to say that it worked. I did not have the negative emotional effects I have gotten in the past from anesthesia.

It is very simple to turn any allopathic drug into a potentized homeopathic remedy. The reason to do this is that the drug is the crude form of the substance. The homeopathic version is the highly dilute, potentized form of the substance. The potentized form will cancel out the negative effects of the crude form.

Here is how I potentized the anesthesia: I put a 1/4 of a tsp. of both anesthetics into a 4 oz. amber glass jar and filled it with filtered water up to where the bottle bends inward. Then I put a book down on a table and covered it with a mat, so that I wouldn’t damage the book. Then I succussed the jar by banging it against the book 40 times. (I chose the number 40, because I didn’t have the strength or stamina to do it 100 times). Then I took the jar into my yard and poured out all but about 1/4 of a teaspoon of the water in the jar. I had created the 1st centesimal dilution. Then I refilled the bottle the same way as before and repeated the above process 12 times. It took me about 1/2 an hour to do this. It was well worth it to spend that 1/2 hour, because it saved me from three to four days of sinking into a dark depression from the mental effects of the anesthesia.

Remedies for Chronic Problems with the Mouth and Teeth: There are many remedies that we can turn to for chronic problems with the teeth and the mouth. The list is vast, but I will mention some of the most prominent ones below. These remedies can be used for acute pain in the teeth. They can also be used on constitutional indications to try to prevent dental decay.

When trying to select a remedy for chronic dental problems, remember that you cannot separate the mouth from the owner of the mouth. When the attention, however, is forced to the mouth due to pain, then grab the hints from wherever you can get them. Here are some places to look:

Appearance of the tongue.

Appearacnce of the teeth.

Sensitivity of the teeth to hot and cold.

The time of day when the pain occurs.

The modalities of the case. Modalities are what makes the symptoms better or worse.

The mental and emotional state of the patient.
