Toxic Dentures


Toxins in Dental Plastic Plates

The Cost of Dental Treatment:  Are Dentures a Good Option?

My, oh my, how I wish I had listened to Walter Last when I began following his dietary and detoxification measures:  This was when  I was very young, in my mid 20’s, and I had only just found Walter and his diet.  At that stage, I was simply following his advice in the hope that the diet would help me to recover from 245T poisoning which had resulted in a breakdown of health, especially after my daughter, who was exposed to the chemical in the womb, had died.

I had not read anything at all, at this stage, about  the possible  remarkable effects of the diet which Walter Last proposed,  on teeth.

I told Walter that I was thinking of having all my teeth removed, because we could not afford treatment.

What I know now was that an inadequate diet, with no dental care, and chemical poisoning to boot,  had caused my teeth to suffer badly.  Excessive alcohol abuse in my teens had also not helped the condition of my teeth.

Walter said I should just continue with the diet, and use herbs such as prickly ash on the teeth in the meantime.  He assured me that things would get better.

But I did not listen:  I had all my teeth extracted within several months of having my third child, just after beginning Walter’s treatment,  mainly to save expense.

I have paid dearly for this mad move.  Since this time, I have read a lot more and have learned about the successes of people like Jaqui Davison, who grew new teeth as she strived to beat cancer through diet and detoxification.  I have used a similar programme to Dr Gerson’s and Walter Last’s to cure myself of a breast lump, and someone else of serious gum disease, which would have otherwise cost her the price of her house to fix, had she followed her dental specialist’s advice, which was to subject herself to a removal and scraping operation on each tooth.

New Dentures Have Only Lasted a Year

Dentures, for me, have a limited life. There has been no obvious external need to have a new denture at all these past few years:  there has been no problem with the way they fit, the way they look, or the way they work in chewing food.  The problem for me is the poisons in the plastic.  Toxins in the plastic begin to be released as the plastic becomes older, and this causes major health problems, simply because the physical body is being ‘fed’ a constant supply of denture toxins.  Consequently,  I have needed new dentures every three years or so.

Taking antioxidants such as Vitamin C, or ginger, cinnamon, or garlic, are not so good to take when you have plastic in your mouth, because these items, which all work to help remove poisons from the body, also have an effect on the plastic fabric of the denture.  They cause poisons in the plastic to be released more readily, so you end up with toxic poisoning from the plastic if you use these products often.

Herbicides, Pesticides, Parabens, Affect Denture Plastic:

Coming into contact with herbicides, pesticides and other chemicals such as those parabens and propyl  “things” in cosmetics,  cause the teeth to behave in an extremely toxic way, as these chemicals get absorbed into the plastic, where they intensify the already toxic nature of the denture plastic.

Apple Moth Eradication Programme in Auckland:  When MAF were spraying Aucklanders with their ‘apple moth’ spray around the years 2001-2005, I was more ill than most people, because this spray accumulated in the plastic of the dentures, and I simply could not get rid of it.  This affected my whole health, including memory and even the ability to speak.

Just how and why the Labour Government could justify using this spray all over the city for such an extended period beats me.  I am still curious as to their motives for using this spray which had an extremely deleterious effect on the health of so many people:  I am sure there had to be some manipulation of facts by chemical and drug companies, and monetary gain to be had by these companies.   The spraying programme did not eradicate the apple moth anyway.  It had the effect of getting large amounts of the population going to the doctor for all sorts of mysterious illnesses.  Around this time, I had to throw away the current dentures which were only two or three years old, because they became toxic due to toxicity resulting from the apple moth spraying programme.  This is just one cost which was not reimbursed by MAF and their doctors:  The other was that I had to suddenly quit living in the city, give away my piano teaching business and all household appliances like fridge, washing machine, etc, and escape to the countryside.

About six or seven years ago, I found a new dental technician whom I thought had the answer for me. I paid $2,500 and a bit more at the time to get a fantastic new set of dentures which looked really good and were almost as good as my original teeth in their chewing function.  An expensive type of clear nylon fabric was used, with porcelain teeth, to minimize the amount of plastic in the mouth.

However, these teeth only lasted about three years before the health issues began again.  By the time two more years had passed, there was no doubt at all that the dentures were undermining my health dramatically:  Suddenly, one day, I could not stand them in the mouth any longer, as they were causing erosion of the mouth and lip tissues.  My digestion was affected equally badly – it felt as if the same bleeding was occurring throughout the body.  I took the teeth out, and recovered within a few days.  I could not wear those teeth again, as every time I used them, the same symptoms would occur.

Health Problems From Dentures

Poisoning Symptoms which I experience from these dental plate toxins are:

Breathing difficulty, breathlessness when walking quickly, amnesia, loss of memory similar to alzheimer’s, pains in the joints which develop into a weakness and paralysis if I continue to wear the denture, ear ache, sinusitis, eczema, and poor vision.

Now – I have just turned 61.  People, and doctors too, will say “You can expect these things to happen when you get older’.  But – I have been experiencing the same symptoms because of denture plastic all my life.  Every time, when the dentures are done away with, my health gets better.  New dentures then, except for one lot which were made of especially toxic plastic, work well for several years before they begin to break down and cause problems with health again.

New Dentures This Time Have Only Lasted One Year:

A year ago, the same old thing happened with the previous denture:  suddenly, there was no doubt at all about the bad effect of the denture on my health.  So I got a new set made at the cost of $3,000.

Unfortunately, I think the life of this plate was reduced dramatically because the dentist mucked up the first moulding of the teeth.  I had to return a few months later to get the matter put right:  This meant that the teeth had to be heated up to be remoulded again, and I am sure that it was this heating process which has caused the leeching of plastic chemicals into my stomach.  This ability to reuse this modern plastic by heating it up is exactly why dentists use this material:  If they get the first moulding wrong, then they do not need to throw away the teeth to make a new one, they simply heat the plastic up and remould the teeth.  This, I believe, is very bad for the health, and the reason why I have had to throw these dentures away:………..

Alas, 13 months later, the teeth have suddenly become toxic.  The taste of glue with what I guess must be formaldehyde, or similar, is very strong.  No amount of cleaning, or leaving them out for several days, changes anything.  The taste of glue through my mouth is unbearable.  It now causes terrible stomach pains, has killed off the ‘good’ bacteria in my digestive system, causes blurred vision, earache, dizziness, depression, chronic eczema, and pains in the joints and arms with a feeling of imminent paralysis.

I think that the denture plastic, apart from having been ruined by being heated up at the dentists to be remoulded, also reacted to my using a quantity of tea tree oil which I put on my hair and on my skin recently. Ironically, this was used to try and clear a sudden attack of eczema, which most probably was caused by formaldehyde, parabens or whatever, which was coming from the denture plastic.

I have found that tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil and other such strong embrocations get absorbed into the denture plastic which cause it to erode more quickly.  I have noticed this other years – that the teeth, which I was already becoming doubtful about  with regard to their effect on my health, were made infinitely worse once tea tree or eucalyptus oil had been used.

So – let this be a warning to all those people who consider that having false teeth might be a cheaper way to go:  It has not been cheaper for me having dentures.  If several sets only were needed during a life time, and they were not made of toxic material, then dentures would be a fine thing.

But dentures, I believe, are VERY BAD for the health.  The plastic in dentures could be one reason why so many people suffer alzheimer’s at an early age.  We absorb too much plastic poison from other products in our environment, like having milk in plastic, plastic wrapping over meats and cheese, etc – but having plastic in your mouth has to be the very worst thing, because you are constantly absorbing a certain amount of poisons from the plastic into your system.

What I want to now is – why can I not get a plate made which is not made of plastic – something like the hard old thing which the soldiers in the second world war were fitted with?  My Dad had this plate for years – he might still be wearing the same one. I think that the material  in these old plates was better for the health because it  was made of a material which did not break down easily.  Even if it WAS plastic, it was certainly a harder type than the soft malleable plastic which is used today by dental technicians.  They use this soft plastic because it is easy to mould:  It can be heated and reshaped if the first imprint is not a good fit.  But this soft plastic is a hazard to the health.

Regrow Tooth Enamel

How People Have Regrown Teeth:

This post is in answer to Amalhator’s comment on one of  my recent posts about how to grow new teeth, entitled Regrow Teeth.

Thankyou for your comment Amalhator.

There are some dental experts who specialize in growing new enamel on teeth.  This is done  with specially prepared natural formulas of minerals and vitamins which aid the reparation of the natural tooth enamel.

It is recommended that you see a health professional about your teeth if you wish to regrow tooth enamel. A dental expert should help you. This post is intended for information only, and so you might like to discuss these methods with your health professional before giving any of these methods  a go, of course, with your dentist’s  approval.

Tooth enamel and new hair can be regrown through diet and detoxification methods.  Whether you succeed in growing new teeth using the same method as Dr Gerson and Jacqui Davison will depend on how strictly you follow their methods,  and how long you follow their diet and detoxification methods.

If you are youngish, then your ability to regrow new tooth enamel will be stronger than if you are old with a weakened vitality.  However, it must be stressed that success  in growing new teeth naturally does  require a huge commitment:   following any type of  alternative method as  recommended  by Dr Gerson, Walter Last, Dr Anne Wigmore, Dr Eva Hill is not  easy by any means.

Cases of people who have regrown their teeth and their hair can be found, going back 50 years or so,  in some of Dr Max Gerson’s cancer patients who overcame the disease.

From written reports on his successes, and the book by Jacqui Davison who cured her own melanoma through following much of the Gerson treatment, we can deduce that these natural methods for treating cancer actually work to regrow tooth enamel and to regrow hair, as well as being effective in  curing cancer:  Many of those who recovered from cancer reported miraculous changes to the state of their teeth.

The recovery of the teeth occurred because the diet contained optimum amounts of all the necessary vitamins and minerals to cure cancer, and for the maintaining of excellent health.  These minerals and vitamins nourished the blood which fed the nerves of the teeth, and so the teeth regrew.

Those teeth which had the nerve removed, or which were ‘capped’, did not regrow, because there was no nerve left to feed the tooth. The nerve of the tooth must be intact for a tooth to regrow.

Hard Work To Grow New Tooth Enamel: These cancer patients had very specific diets which excluded cooked food, dairy,  wheat, sugar and flesh foods for very long periods.  That means NO dairy foods, NO meat, NO Wheat,  NO cooked food, but raw salads with almost every meal, and fresh organic vegetable juices on the hour every hour.  After several weeks,  two raw egg yolks a day were included in the diet to supply protein, fats and vitamins.

The diet also had specific  vitamin and mineral supplements  which aided recovery.  However, many people have recovered from cancer using  similar methods to Dr Gerson’s without the addition of nutritional supplements.

Dr Eva Hill, who worked in New Zealand about the same time as Dr Gerson worked in Americal and Mexico, cured many people of serious disease by raw food alone. Walter Last, and Dr Anne Wigmore are two other doctors who have cured people of life threatening disease by using diet and detoxification methods. These people have all written books on their successes which detail their use of diet, and detoxification.

Oatmeal Porridge: In the main, the only cooked food which was eaten at the beginning of the Gerson therapy was oatmeal porridge, which was eaten with a grated raw apple every morning.

The oatmeal porridge must have had a bearing on the recovery of the health and the hair, as oatmeal is very high in silica, which helps bone, hair and teeth to grow.  Silica, and calcium, are both necessary to combat cancer.

Iodine is another essential for treating cancer and for improving the health of the hair teeth and nails:  liquid iodine can be used for iodine intake.  Just several dabs onto the skin twice a week should be sufficient for most healthy people.

Calves’ Liver Broth for Enzymes and Iron: Walter Last used calves’ liver broth in his cancer treatments:  This supplies important nutrients and enzymes to the body, a teaspoon or two at a time, several times a day, without having to eat the meat. See my post on how to make calf liver broth. Eating the meat itself is avoided in treating cancer, as meat putrifies in the bowel, which must be avoided at all costs if you have cancer.  The idea is to keep the bowels as clean as they can be in treating cancer, and this must apply also if you are attempting to grow new teeth.

Castor Oil for Detoxification and Healing: The special diet  recommended by Dr Gerson was  used in combination with intense detoxification methods.  The integral parts of the detoxifaction process included the use of castor oil and enemas.

Castor Oil is a very powerful healer, as well as a detoxifying agent. Castor oil has the ability to draw out poisons from the body tissues.  It also helps to transfer valuable healing vitamins and minerals over all parts of the body.  I believe that castor oil was an integral part of the recovery of these cancer patients, including the regrowth of hair and newly grown tooth enamel.

Enemas are important in the Gerson therapy, and in Walter Last’s treatments. However, you really need the advice of a professional in using these along with any alternative cancer therapy.

One Case of Cured Gum Disease:  Years ago, I had one amazing success of curing a person with a gum disease which threatened the life of my friend’s teeth.  She had been tole by a dentist that each tooth must be removed, scraped, treated, and then reinserted back into her gums.  Each tooth was to be treated individually, one at a time, and these operations were going to take place over a period of about six months at a cost of around $5,000 per tooth, which, twelve years ago or so, was a large amount of money.

Basically, she could not afford to keep her teeth, and she came to me to see if I could help her.

Tooth Cavity Repaired Through Diet: Now I had seen tooth enamel regrow while my family and myself were on a totally dairy free, and wheat-free, and  sugar-free diet.  It was not a total raw foods diet, as we ate cooked vegetables and also  had meat, chicken, fish, and eggs, and rice, and other gluten free grains – but for years we did not touch dairy, wheat, or foods sweetened with white sugar.

One day, I noticed that my son, who was about 10 years old, had developed a cavity in one of his lovely front white teeth. I did not take him immediately to see the dentist, because the cavity was quite small – I resisted getting such a small cavity drilled out, as that would make the cavity even bigger, and I had a mouth full of teeth which were mainly fillings because of this kind of dentistry.

We kept on with the diet which was necessary because my son had chronic allergy to wheat, milk and sugar at that stage.  After around six months, when rechecking the mouth, I found that the cavity had simply disappeared.  The hole had completely repaired itself without us  having to  see a dentist.

This was entirely coincidental, as I had been treating eczema with diet, not holes in teeth.

I had had earlier success myself with this kind of diet in curing a breast lump. Anyway – I published a couple of little books on the subject, and so my friend came to see me about  the gum disease and the costly treatment which her dentist proposed for her.

Now not many people are really that keen to do the alternative cancer treatment seriously.  Many people, even those with cancer, will do a little of it, but not the works, which includes enemas and castor oil.

But my friend, to my surprise, did everything to the letter.  Three months later, the gum disease was totally cured and she looked about twenty years younger, full of vitality.

She went back to see the dentist to show him how healthy her teeth and gums were, and to say that she would not need this operation after all.  The dentist  told her that he must have been wrong in his diagnosis.  he said he had made a mistake, because  she couldn’t have had this gum disease after all, if she had ‘cured’ herself naturally, as she said she had. He said the disease was incurable.

But before she ‘cured’ herself, he was more than happy to go along with his undisputed diagnosis, remove all her teeth, and charge her around $50,000 to $100,000 for what he said was a necessary and urgent operation.
