Dental issues and Meniere’s disease :
Leaking Mercury from amalgam fillings can cause Meniere’s symptoms. How to Detox Mercury.
Ben Zander, the conductor of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, almost had to give up his careers because of the debilitating symptoms of Meniere’s ‘disease’ and almost lost his hearing. Cruel for a musician of such standing. He would have to leave concerts half way through.
“They told me it was Meniere’s disease and there was nothing they could do about it,” said Zander.
I can not count the times we have heard this…..and it is simply NOT TRUE. There is much you can do.
He went from doctor to doctor, and no one could help. He was eventually referred tp biological dentist Dr. G. Robert Evans of the Groton Wellness Dental Spa and Medical Center. Evans traced his symptoms to the amalgam fillings in his mouth. Fillings that were partly mercury. Evans removed 15 fillings immediately.
Mr Zander completely recovered after having the amalgam/mercury removed and has not had an attack since.
“Mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive substance known to man. It is 1,000 times more toxic than lead, said Evans.
The American Dental Association said the FDA acted appropriately last month when it found that dental amalgam is a safe and effective treatment option for the general public. But the ADA also supports the feds’ recommendation to continue review of existing and new scientific information as it becomes available.
However, “The World Health Organization declared there’s no safe level of exposure to mercury,” said Evans, who runs a mercury free practice.
“The fact that I got over my Meniere’s disease because I had the metal out of my teeth is not proof it caused a problem but that’s what happened,” said Zander, who said he has never missed another concert after having his fillings removed.
When a dentist removes amalgam and the mercury in it, it is so toxic that it can not be thrown away because it is deemed a environmental hazard. A toxic waste hauler is called in to dispose of it.
Dr Evans says,” if you took a good size mercury filling and placed it in a ten acre lake, it would warrant a fishing advisory that you can’t fish in that lake.
You make your mind up, but I know I had my solitary amalgam filling removed and replaced with ‘ozone treatment’ here in Japan (the technology used for ozone dental treatment actually comes from Ireland). We hear from people all the time that have been told by their doctor that there is nothing they can do about their Meniere’s or vertigo, only to find later that they can live symptom free with a change of lifestyle and the high quality supplements we use or they find their original cause, be it dental or jaw related, neck or back problems or one or more of the many other possible causes we are finding all the time.
A paper at ScienceDirect.Com discusses possible dental causes of Menieres……here is a summary:
Meniere’s disease may be caused by common intraosseous dental pathology – Diagnosis using the comparative compression sign
Meniere’s disease has been ascribed to a disturbance of the vestibular apparatus or its connections within the Central Nervous System. Several hypotheses have been advanced regarding its aetiopathogenesis, but treatments based on these hypotheses have often not produced the desired results. Two cases are described where common intraosseous pathology within the lower half of the functional face, i.e. within the mandible and maxillae, was shown to be the cause of Meniere’s disease. Together, these cases contributed to the chance discovery of the comparative compression sign which, when able to be elicited, may be considered pathognomonic for a dental origin of the condition. It is suggested that, in addition to other hypothesized causes involving the vestibular apparatus and the CNS, Meniere’s disease and vertigo may also be caused by common, readily-identifiable intraosseous dental pathology. These unexpected findings open up a new field for future research.

To help your body excrete and eliminate heavy metals and other toxins try these natural detox methods:
#1. Epsom Salt Baths
Epsom salt is a mixture of magnesium and sulfate. Magnesium helps to regulate over 300 enzymes in the body. Sulfate helps flush toxins from the body and is necessary for the health of your skin, joints and nervous system.
Sulfate molecules are negatively charged and are able to both attract and extract heavy metals from the body. We know that the magnesium and sulfate in Epsom Salt penetrates the skin, so soaking in an Epsom Salt bath is a very gentle and useful detoxification practice.
Mix 2 cups of Epsom Salts in a tub of warm water. Soak for 20 minutes several times a week. You may add in 1 drop of each of the following essential oils to enhance the bath. Rosemary, juniper berry and cilantro are good choices for detoxification and tangerine and geranium are purifiers.
TIP: To help the oils disperse, mix the oil into 1 tablespoon of coconut milk or the milk of your choice before adding it to the bath water.
#2. The 2C Combination – Cilantro & Chlorella
1. Cilantro is rich in many vitamins and minerals (potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, magnesium, vitamins A and K). Studies also document proven antiseptic, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. Amazingly, Cilantro has been found to successfully remove Mercury, Aluminum and Lead from the body!
The easiest way to incorporate cilantro into your healing protocol is to consume about ¼ cup of fresh cilantro leaves daily. You can do this in a smoothie or by mincing the leaves and adding them to your meals. Do be careful not to consume much more than ¼ cup of cilantro daily, because the chelating effects can be quite real.
Cilantro PULLS heavy metals out of your tissues, but you also need to bind it and excrete it. This is where chlorella comes in!
2. Chlorella absorbs heavy metals and facilitates their release from the body when you urinate. In a German study, high doses of chlorella were found very effective in eliminating heavy metals from the brain, intestinal wall, muscles, ligaments, connective tissue and bone.
Include chlorella with your cilantro to create an awesome detoxifying duo!
#3. The GPS – Garlic, Probiotics & Silica
1. Garlic has been scientifically proven to treat heavy metal poisoning by binding with the heavy metals so they they can be excreted rather than deposited in bone and tissues.
The allicin in raw garlic not only has significant antioxidant properties, but is also antifungal, antiparasitic and antibacterial. This is important for helping support immune health while your body is working to detox.
Add crushed/minced garlic to your food daily. Tasty ideas range from garlic broth to a lively pesto.
2. Probiotics are protective powerhouses. An article from probiotic expert resource, BodyEcology, noted that “a 2012 study from the Lawson Health Research Institute explored the value of probiotics in those who have an accumulation of heavy metals.
“According to researchers, the friendly gut bacteria Lactobacillus have the ability to detoxify heavy metals. Other studies report that probiotics may be valuable tools for cleansing the body of the heavy metals lead and cadmium.”
Add a daily lactobacillus supplement or consume plenty of fermented foods. Lactobacillus bacteria are prevalent in fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kombucha and fermented vegetables. Not only will you be working to cleanse your body from heavy metals, but you’ll also be supporting great digestive health and a lower inflammatory response.
3. Silica–rich foods and herbs are great choices for a heavy metal detox. In a 2009 study, silica was shown to be protective in subjects with high aluminum exposure.
Aluminum is excreted via urine when you supplement with silica. Proper hydration and adequate vitamin B1 and potassium are necessary when using silica though.
Try supplementing with a horsetail tea or tincture or focus on silica-rich foods for several weeks. Horsetail should not be used long term (an herbalist can guide you if you’re interested in focusing on herbs for detoxing).
According to the 1993 book Silica: The Forgotten Nutrient by Klaus Kaufmann, the richest food sources of silica are (foods are measured in 100g; Silica content is measured in mg):
Whole wheat grain: 158
Jerusalem artichoke: 36
Red beets: 21
Horsetail is a weed that is used as a diuretic and astringent in herbal remedies. The silica content of horsetail is unmatched and is likely the reason why people who use it give accounts of shiny, healthy hair, nails and skin. Beyond beauty, the silica in horsetail may also be a good choice for removing aluminum from the body. – Source: http://fitlife.tv
