Robyn: Hi and welcome to Your High Vibration Life. I’m your host, Robyn Openshaw. And today, we are introducing to you again, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, who is one of the most preeminent energy medicine doctors on the face of the planet. In this episode, Dr. Klinghardt had gone on at length with me about biological dentistry and toxic practices and materials used by conventional dentists. It’s not their fault. It’s what they were trained in in dental school. Knowing what’s in this episode might be a game changer for your health. So I hope you enjoy more great content from Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. So, Dr. Klinghardt, what makes biological dentistry unique?
Dr. Klinghardt: Biological dentistry is the revolutionary discovery that the teeth are actually part of the body. An example of non-biological thinking is the FDA has ruled amalgam fillings a device. A device is something that’s external to the body. As some of the filling materials in the teeth are regulated like a TENS unit or like a cane or a wheelchair, something that’s outside the body. And biological dentistry is a revolutionary discovery that the teeth are actually an integral part of the body, and whatever happens in the teeth will affect every system in the body. So biological medicine and biological dentistry, of course, are two ends of the same stick. I think that’s all I want to say at this point.
Robyn: You know I’m quite certain you know Dr. Thomas Rau very well. I’ve been to both of the Paracelsus clinics, the one in the north in Lustmühle, being the very famous one, but the very, very beautiful sort of undiscovered by Americans one, there’s not a word written in English about the place. I discovered it, and I’ve taken many, many people there. Do you know Dr. Petra Wiechel who runs it now?
Dr. Klinghardt: Of course. We know each other very well.
Robyn: I thought so. She is a dear friend, and I showed her around America. She is just one of the many doctors who’ve told me about your work. Biological dentistry really fascinates me, and you’ve touched on that and you’ve alluded to the fact that our teeth are actually organs of the body. Would you talk about … I believe you probably had something to do with this research, but Dr. Rau has this, it should be a famous chart of connecting the teeth to the meridians of the body and his famous work in connecting breast cancer to root canals. Can you speak to that a bit?
Dr. Klinghardt: Yes. The dental chart actually originates from Dr. Reinhold Voll and Felix Kramer. Dr. Rau was just selling it, but actually, the chart was developed by two brilliant physicians. Dr. Voll, who interesting … Most people don’t know that he developed EDS, electrodermal screening, electroacupuncture, but not really. He got that from Wilhelm Reich, who was a brilliant German, Jewish physician, who immigrated during the Nazi time to the U.S., and unfortunately had a pretty rough fate. He has books, which were brilliant but burned. In 1966, the Americans were still doing book burnings like they did in the middle ages, and so his knowledge kind of disappeared. Dr. Voll was one of his students and developed acupuncture, and he did the first measurements to show how which tooth is related to which organ. It was his student, Dr. Schimmel, who developed the bigger test, but also was a dentist.
Dr. Schimmel was not the first one to report that root canals cause cancer. It was really the American dentist, Weston Price, who wrote the first essay on that the root canals cause cancer around 1920. But, as all good things in America, there’s a huge lobby from the industry that the American knowledge of really good revolutionary things we cannot make money with, that knowledge doesn’t blossom here. It has to go to some other country and becomes famous there and then hopefully, it makes it back to America. That happened to be the root canal issue. How toxic root canals are and how devastating to the system was discovered in the U.S. by this wonderful research Weston Price did. That’s all written up in George Meinig’s book, the Root Canal Cover-Up. The original research by then went from here to Germany, and then Dr. Schimmel made it measurable and all those things end at the dental chart that eventually was published by Dr. Schimmel. Then Dr. Rau instead made a nice color copy of it. But we want to give credit to the people that really have developed these beautiful insights.
Robyn: Yeah, I appreciate that because it wasn’t my first exposure to how toxic root canals are and unfortunately have had a few of my own teeth pulled because I didn’t realize what I was doing many years ago when I had root canals. We will post in the show notes the Root Canal Cover-Up by Meinig, I believe. You can go and you can read the work of Weston Price but it’s huge volumes and so that probably boils it down and writes it more for a lay person so we can understand it. This is going to be kind of a shock for some people listening. Dr. Klinghardt, I find that every time I talk to anyone about this, even people who are pretty sophisticated and pretty well down the path of learning more holistic ways of living than just handing your health to a medical doctor for your drugs and your surgeries. I find that they don’t know the connection between root canals and their health. Will you just explain in the simplest language possible why root canals are connected to breast cancer and what is so very toxic about getting a root canal?
Dr. Klinghardt: I think the easiest way for people to understand is the original research. Weston Price started with a patient with very, very severe knee pain. He extracted a root canal tooth that the patient has. The knee pain went away. Then he implanted that very tooth under the skin of a rabbit and within three days, the rabbit had knee pain on the same side, swollen knee, and died from an infection in that knee. Then, a few experiments further down, he took a root canal out from a patient with breast cancer. The breast cancer improved. I don’t know if the patient healed or just improved. He took that tooth, sewed it under the skin of a rabbit. Within a few days or a week or so, the rabbit developed breast cancer.
So I think that says more than any of the studies that we know that the root canal filling itself, the gutta-percha, contains 5% mercury, which is highly toxic, but we know that the lateral canals in the tooth are filled with bacteria after a few months of root canal and they secrete very toxic endo and exotoxins, that then showed a variety of effects in the body. What’s more common is chronic fatigue, sinus problems, shoulder problems, back pain, liver problems, prostate problems, and cancer, yes, occasionally. It’s probably not the most common thing that we see, but it’s one of the possible things. Because it’s so unpredictable, our policy is in biological medicine, root canals have absolutely no place.
Robyn: Well, we have an entire endodontic specialty in American medicine. That’s pretty much what they do all day long, and it’s extremely highly paid specialty, and so endodontics isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. And your endodontist isn’t going to share this with you, and most of them have studied nothing of the work of Weston Price. I think it’s important to mention that if you’re hearing this for the first time, these famous rabbit studies that Dr. Klinghardt is mentioning, keep in mind that it wasn’t just the tooth was implanted under the rabbit’s skin of a woman with breast cancer and one with knee pain. Hundreds of bunnies died in experiments with not just Dr. Price but other practitioners who were able to duplicate his research because research that we want to pay attention to is valid and is replicate-able, and that study went on and on and on. Would you agree? It became just pivotal to the field of biological dentistry, which seeks to do no harm now.
Dr. Klinghardt: Yeah, it was absolutely a convincing research very, very hardcore and irrefutable. Quite honestly, I have the computer full of peer-reviewed articles written by the medical community with similar findings or breaking it down what the cytokines are and what the toxins are that are generated in the root canal teeth. It’s a trade-off. When you take a tooth out, you lose your bite. That structural loss also has consequences on the system, and so we have become quite in favor of replacing root canals with ceramic implants, and so we don’t want to really take the business away from the dentists we just want to retrain them.
It is very clear, by following patients for a long period of time … I have my longest-standing ceramic implant patient is over 30 years now because that’s how long they’ve been around. They’re clearly doing, health-wise, much, much better than a patient with the same number of root-filled teeth. There is a better solution. It could be that one day … We’ve had various seasons where biological dentists tried out different ways of doing the root canals, ozonating the inside of the tooth, running electric currents through it with colloidal silver, and there has been marginal progress in making them less toxic. I don’t want to go over the single care of dozens of cases where that clearly did not work out. The patient still got the illness related to it and still the patient dramatically improved when the teeth were pulled.
And so, biological dentistry is an unfortunate area in the U.S. as many of the good techniques are hard to do things right come from the U.S. but many of the dentists actually practicing that way lost their license, because in the U.S., a dental license, a medical license is a privilege given by the medical board or dental board that can be taken away without any real justification. Privileges are not constitutional rights. Let’s put it that way. And so it puts the whole group of medical doctors and dentists in the U.S. in a very dangerous place. You know they lose their license, they lose their life, their family and everything. That unfortunately we’ve seen too many times.
So, I started referring patients that need to have more extensive dental work done to a biological clinic in Switzerland called Swiss BioHealth. There’s other places that do everything right according to the latest standard in science and they’re not reprimanded by their dental boards or medical boards to practice an archaic way of unscientific dentistry. Unfortunately the dentists here in the U.S. are really not free to to the right thing … the same for the physicians. So we all need to be careful what we say.
Robyn: I believe Hal Huggins is one of the probably most controversial, famous and brave and bold early dentists who faced losing his license by speaking up against mercury in fillings that was causing neurological damages … causing autoimmune misfires in the body and probably causing cancer like you said … a lesser, but significant problem. With all this heavy metal exposure, don’t expect … if you’re listening to this … don’t expect the American Dental Association to come out and say “Oh, everybody, we’re really sorry that we exposed tens of millions of Americans to heavy metals exposure.” That would be like the class action lawsuit of the century. And I, not being a medical doctor, can speak more freely than Dr. Klinghardt can. So I’m going to speak fairly boldly and what’s he talking about … just to recap is that American dentists are trying to do things like ozonate a dead or dying tooth. And they’re trying to use processes of using nano silver which has really great surface area coverage that kills bacteria.
But what I think I hear you saying, Dr. Klinghardt, is that you see American dentists doing these things but you’ve seen it fail. And my guess is because when you are talking about a tooth it’s a living organism. It’s an organ of your body. You’re talking about three miles of dentin tubules in one tooth. Therefore, how are you going to sterilize it? How are you going to ozonate all of that so that those living bacteria don’t become these deadly pleomorphic organisms that can range the body. Am I summing it up fairly well?
Dr. Klinghardt: Yeah. Absolutely.
Robyn: Tell me about … Because that was new to me that you said you have a thirty year old ceramic implant that you placed. It sounds like you believe in that. So the biological dentists here in Utah, they pretty much all use titanium. Dr. Judson Wall uses zirconium. I have one zirconium implant. And then you’re using ceramic. What do you think the short version is of the differences there?
Dr. Klinghardt: No, zirconium oxide is a ceramic material. So, all ceramics are metal salts that are non conductive. And titanium is too difficult. There’s one salt that titanium slowly … molecules of titanium are carried away from the dental implant highly sensitizing the allergic system in people. That’s one problem. So it’s not very toxic but it’s highly immunogenic. It cranks the immune system up … leads to autoimmunity. That’s all published. [inaudible 00:16:03], she’s an immuno toxicologist in the Czech Republic. Now she works at the Karolinska Institute for many years and has published all those papers. And the science on that is very clear that titanium is not an acceptable material in the jaw.
The other one that is less known is that titanium implant acts as a microwave antenna. That means they concentrate the electrons they are exposed to concentrated into your jaw several hundred fold and that has a very destructive effect. It’s a pro inflammatory radiation that you funnel into your body the moment you have the titanium implant. So it’s a no-no.
And then the ceramic filling used most commonly is zirconium oxide. Zirconium oxide is also known in South America as a healing gemstone that people use for gemstone healing work. And of course it’s made in the lab but it’s still the same gemstone. It’s a material that’s light conductive. It’s very, very important for proper functioning of the teeth. It’s a light conduit similar to a fibro optic … and it has no surface electrons. That means it cannot possibly cause any allergies or any recognition by the immune system. And it is not conductive electrically. That means it is not an antenna or receiver for microwaves or electric fields. It’s an extremely safe material.
Initially the healing process may take a tiny bit longer than the titanium. It took the FDA forever to license it. It only happened like six or eight years ago. It’s been in Switzerland for about forty years and Germany for about thirty years so there is a lot of collective experience. There is a higher skill level involved placing a zirconium implant compared to a titanium implant. But given all that, very, very few of the zirconium implants fail. The ones that I’ve observed, like I said the first one that I’ve observed in one of my patients was thirty years ago. It’s still good, still perfect. It’s just a better way to go.
So there’s enough collective experience amongst us practitioners in Europe and worldwide, that if the zirconium implant is placed properly, it lasts forever. It doesn’t break. There is no long distance problem. It doesn’t cause breast cancer. It doesn’t cause knee pain. It doesn’t cause any of the other problems that other things potentially cause. It’s just the right way to go. Unfortunately the products in America, even the zirconium oxide implanted … We’ve looked at other things mixed in with our typical American way of doing things that may not be so inert. So we use implant materials from Europe that are just that – just zirconium oxide. Nothing else in it. There’s no additives, no coloring agents, no nothing.
It’s a beautiful new time. I’m sixty-six. You know, at my age people start losing teeth. And in the old days, in biological medicine, that meant you go to a partial denture. And that partial denture gets bigger and bigger. And now it means when you lose a tooth, you don’t get a root canal, you go straight to get a zirconium oxide implant. And if done properly, it’s fantastic.
Robyn: You have clarified so many things for me. I’ve written so much and researched so much and I get asked a lot of questions about these debates and you’ve really given me some great clarity on the zirconium oxide versus titanium. The only dentist, last I checked in Utah, who does zirconium oxide implants is Dr. Judson Wall. I did get mine from him. I also have a titanium implant and now I’m sorry that I have it and I appreciate that clarification.
Dr. Klinghardt: Maybe one more thing. The proper way to implant is developed again by a German dentist, who practices now in Switzerland. He does this … so first you drill the hole in the bone where the implant is supposed to go. Then he takes your blood, spins out a special subgroup of growth factors that are injected into the site. And then the implant is drilled in like a screw. Those implants heal, on average, four times faster than without what’s called PGRF growth factors. And this is an absolute fantastic new time with the dramatic, quick healing times. It’s a minimum of complications afterwards.
Robyn: I have learned so much already. We will put the Sophia Health Institute URL in the show notes so you make sure you know where you can learn more. I hope you’ve been as fascinated by what doctors in Europe, who study biological medicine, are doing that’s on the cutting edge of wellness worldwide. Thank you to Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt for being a beacon to many, many American doctors and I hope you enjoyed this episode. See you next time.
