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.
