Oral-dental diseases are among the most prevalent diseases globally and greatly reducing the quality of life for those affected. Can a dentist be a part of a medical-dental team to treat cancer or auto-immune disorders? Cancer may disappear after proper dental work along with antiparasitic, antibiotics and antifungal medications prescribed by a primary care family physician when the treatment plan is based on balancing the meridians.
At the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) Annual Meeting in Boston in September 2019, I will give a lecture on, “Missing Links and Case Studies: Dental, Parasites, Allergy-Immunology and Acupuncture Meridian Assessment (AMA).” This talk with a long-winded title will connect the dots between dental-medical links – often missed in conventional practice – with AMA.
I have known the IAOMT organization for many years. It is one of the most influential biologically oriented dental professional associations, working to develop the science to support the case against amalgams and root canals, and focus on safety of the dental materials and procedures.
My lecture will start with reporting on the recent The Lancet July issue addressing the importance of Oral-Dental Health and why the teeth and mouth are an integral part of the body, supporting and enabling essential function, and calling for time to reform for radical action for global health. The Lancet issue covered mainly health risks from dental caries, periodontal disease and oral cancer.
I am happy to see a leading medical journal address the importance of oral/dental health. While it was written more for general medical public policy reform, it is an encouraging sign for the leading medical journal to acknowledge that oral/dental health is an integral part of the body. However, the Lancet series does not cover major health issues related to silver-mercury amalgams, root canals, dental materials, necrotic cavitation of the jawbone, implants, TMJ, or airway-related oral/tongue dysfunctional anatomy.
Next, I will present a case study on detecting dental problems before it shows on X-ray or cone beam using Acupuncture Meridian Assessment (AMA). A 52-year-old Boeing engineer came to see me who developed squamous cell carcinoma of thumb that had been progressively getting worse, and was recommended amputation. Every time I evaluated him with acupuncture meridian assessment, only his dental meridian was out of balance.
He was evaluated by a biological dentist and the cone beam CT scan (gold standard by current dentistry) did not reveal the source of infection. After over one year of going back and forth between the dentist, oncologist and me, we were in a situation to amputate his thumb or pull the suspected infected teeth indicated by acupuncture meridian assessment but not visible by X-ray.
Eventually, he decided to pull a normal-looking tooth, number 10, without any promise. He was willing to amputate his thumb only if the dental operation failed to heal his cancer of the thumb. Based on AMA testing, I put him on amoxicillin, doxycycline and clindamycin empirically for 21 days starting the day of the tooth extraction, and requested DNA testing at the socket of the tooth for forensic evidence. It takes 3-4 weeks for the DNA test report to come back, and it would be too late to treat him at that time.
To my surprise, his large ulcerating large squamous cell tumor was rapidly shrinking after tooth extraction and receiving triple antibiotics in three weeks. My goal was to control hidden dental infections immediately under the guidance of the AMA evaluation. The DNA report revealed he had multiple microorganisms, which the dental X-ray and cone beam had not yet revealed. It may require more time for soft tissue and bone destruction to show in X-ray or cone beam.

His tumor was shrinking rapidly and he decided to do radiation therapy on his thumb to make sure the tumor would not recur as recommended by standard medical care. After radiation therapy, the tumor rapidly spread to his arm, armpit, subclavian vein to chest, and lung, and he died shortly after.
I may never be able to help him anyway regardless of antibiotics and dental work. But, I observed rapid shrinking of a tumor shortly after a tooth extraction and triple antibiotics, as if the tumor was an infectious mass shrinking as the disappearance of the universe as we know it. Read my last article, Antiparasitic Medication and Antifungal Medications Targeting Cancer Cells. There are additional cases of the beneficial impact of treating dental-related medical problems in my new book noted below.
If you are interested in biological dental-medical connections, let your physicians and dentists know about this important conference. Some of the important speakers include Thomas Seyfried, Ph.D., Savely Yurkovsky, MD, and Boyd Haley, Ph.D., dentist Johann Lechner, Ph.D. from Germany, Thomas Levy, MD and many biological dentists. Ask them to visit the IAOMT Dental-Medical Conference September 12-14, 2019 for fish, baked beans and chips! See you in Boston!
