Congrats, ladies!

I went back to Dr. Wall to get my stitches out yesterday. I’m now missing two back teeth, and 5 fillings on the OTHER side of my mouth are re-excavated and filled, plus a “bone graft,” (really it’s just implanting my own blood, spun down to stem cells, a fibrin-rich plug that allows you to BUILD bone where the jawbone was excavated). In six months, that bone will be ready to accept a zirconium implant, screwed in. I’m not going to fossilize any dead teeth in my mouth, ever again—but that doesn’t mean I don’t want pretty, white, straight teeth! None missing! If I do implants to replace both my lost teeth, my total bill for all these procedures will be about $14,000.

I told Dr. Wall the task of the biological dentist is to give us a beautiful, white smile, without killing us in the process.

I’ve had a hard time eating much else besides smoothies, vegetable juice, and soups.

Tomorrow, I’m sharing a couple of YUMMY soup recipes we made up, with our garden produce, to help me limp along on my liquid diet.

This time, my Bioscan was 87,000. Up 7,000 from 2.5 months ago. That’s a super-way-crazy-psycho high score. I was glad to know that my antioxidants are still gonzo, because if you have a raging infection, your cells are gobbling up nutrient reserves, and FAST. Dr. Wall said everything is healing brilliantly and my bone graft looks excellent.

I could feel that since my surgery, even though I hiked to Stewart Falls with Emma on Labor Day, did a hardcore spin class last week, and generally carried on with life, I felt my immune system still straining. I was vegetable-juicing, but all those deadly pleomorphic organisms from those two tooth cavities are now ranging my body, and I FEEL it.

I told Dr. Wall this, and he asked me if I wanted a low-intensity antibiotic. He doesn’t like them, stated that they mess up your GI tract and immunity for TWO YEARS, throwing multiple systems out of balance, but also said, “I also don’t like all those micro-organisms running around inside of you either.”

I said no thanks—I’m doing okay. But I showed  him a swollen lymph node in my neck, just downstream from the removed molars.

He massaged the side of my neck. It hurt. He showed me how to “milk” it—like squeezing thick stuff out of a straw, he said. A few hours later, the swollen painful lymph gland was back to normal, not painful or swollen.

My whole life, if my immune system is taxed, that’s my inherent weakness: lymph glands back up. (Some people, it’s their lungs, or sinuses, or something else, where acidity and infection tends to settle.) Fortunately, lymph glands can be easily manually stimulated.

I met a couple of GSG readers there in the office, who have been going to Dr. Wall since I first blogged about him. (Good luck! It takes weeks, or even a couple of months, to get in! But don’t give up—he is outstanding and moving to a larger office. I want him to train another dentist in his modalities to shorten the wait time.)

I want to promote biological dentistry because I’m SICK that people are putting poison in their mouth every day all around me. They’re cutting the nerve and artery to an ORGAN, and shellacking it in the mouth, and then assuming everything will be just fine. This practice is anything but fine.

I told Dr. Wall he is one of my heroes. He loses popularity with the A.D.A.-loyal dentists, and many other people, in the interests of doing what’s right. I respect that.

Tomorrow, the recipes for an amazing vegan cream of tomato soup, and an out-of-this-world Indian carrot soup with garam masala in it. My survival strategy for the past 2 weeks.

  1. Wow I’m mad! How much more is there going to be? How many more ways is the medical system going to screw us? I don’t usually rant but nothing I seem to do fixes me. And to know they allowed this one more thing to poison us. I may not ever get better. I have two amalgam fillings and a root canal and I had jaw surgery at 16. I don’t have that kind of money to fix it. Nor do I have the resources where I live to even get it done. I’ve been ill since I was little. As in I developed allergies right from the start. My Mom couldn’t breastfeed and I was allergic to cows milk formula. And then each year I got another auto immune issue. And I just watched my Mom just die relying on the medical system. I’m mad. And now I’m feeling like I may never reach full health. Wow…I’m really flabbergasted. Sorry for the rant. But no one around me gets it and are sick of my non medically diagnosed illnesses. Most probably don’t even believe me. They probably think it’s in my head. I sometimes feel alone in this fight. Okay…I’ll stop ranting now. In lighter news…excited for the soup recipes.

  2. Hi Robyn: Besides throwing out your immune system for two years and messing up your GI tract, what else do antibiotics do? If a person colonizes new bacteria in a month, then why would these things happen anyway? Do you have any readings on this? Thanks, Debbie

  3. Hey Robyn, So glad to have you blog about Dr. Wall. I have been going to him, as well, and agree that he is outstanding. I’m currently working on removing my mercury fillings. I applaud him for practicing outside the box of the establishment (ADA), which takes a lot of guts. So glad to hear of your experience. While I don’t have any root canaled teeth, I do have cavitations due to epinephrine used during wisdom tooth extractions and will also need a bone graft. Thanks for sharing as it gives me the confidence to undergo the procedure. Expensive, yes, but so worth the health benefits of ridding the body of harmful immune-taxing toxins.

  4. I’m torn when I read about this dental stuff. The science always pulls me in – I like to know the truth of things – but I will never have that kind of money unless I win the lottery. So I’m frustrated by what I can’t do, and also angry at the system that seems bent on ruining us. But abiding anger can sap your system just like an abiding toxin, so I try to avoid indulging anger, especially if it is fostering a sense of feeling helpless. When I feel overwhelmed with info I can’t afford to act on, I go back to a saying that has often helped me: ‘Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.’ I focus on what I can do and try to not to obsess about what I can’t do. It’s a more empowered place to operate from. I can’t afford to get a toxic overhaul at the dentist today, but I can go into the kitchen and make a healthy smoothie. Then it’s off to the store to buy more parsley – and a few lottery tickets : ) You never know…

  5. “Covered by insurance” doesn’t mean much these days. My dental insurance maxes out at $1000/year, and only covers major work like root canals at 50%. Yes, getting $1000 covered is better than $0, but the full amount for a biological dentist is still going to be very high comparatively.

    About 5 years ago I was told I needed a gum graft and 2 root canals. It took me 3 years to get it all done, maxing out the insurance each year. Too bad I didn’t wait a couple more years, because I got the root canals finished up right before Dr. Ulm really went full force with his biological dentistry (he was already ahead of the pack when I got them done though).

  6. Hi Robyn, I have a “bad” root canal that I am having removed as well as some “faulty” fillings that are being redone. While I don’t have your wonderful Dr. Wall here in OR, I was wondering what are the preventative things I can do as I go through the process. When I had my wisdom teeth out 7 years ago I had a friend who suggested several homeopathic remedies which I know helped in my healing. I’d love to know more about the essential oils you used. I will be contacting my naturopath in regards to Vit C IV however I know this will need to be done before/after the procedure as I doubt the dentist would allow it during.

    Thank you!
