Medical Acupuncture on Dental-Oral Cavity Meridian: Dental as a Missing Link for Medical Failures

Do you want to live a longer, healthier life without chronic aches, pain or chronic illness? Your oral cavity, gum and dental status can provide an ample “mouthful of evidence” of your health status, and your physician most likely overlooked the dental-oral connection to your health. Medical doctors rely on dentists to care for your teeth, and common procedures can lead to making your health worse in the long run. How do I know? I have witnessed a medical and dental disconnection for the last 30 years thanks to my mentor, biological dentist Doug Cook, DDS, a pioneer in the field of Energy Medicine in Dentistry. The Dental Meridian represents the upper lymphatic system including throat, tonsils, sinus and oral cavity.

Hidden dental problems may be as bad or worse for your health than obesity, hypertension and diabetes as a preexisting medical condition, and yet medical professions are blindsided by dental problems as a preexisting condition and source of inflammation and chronic disease. Modern dentistry may create a bigger medical problem with its current Newtonian-based mechanical model of dentistry focused on physical function and cosmetics. The future of dentistry will understand and embrace Energy Medicine, a part of holistic, integrative biological medicine. Acupuncture meridians are an integral part of energy, the basic language of Nature; energy medicine is essential to understanding health and disease.

There is no clearly defined dental-oral cavity meridian according to Classical Acupuncture literature. However, German medical doctor, homeopath and acupuncturist Reinhold Voll described the lymphatic system of the jaw (dental-oral cavity), which overlaps with the classical Lung meridian. One of my severe asthma patients who did not respond to standard and alternative care did respond to extraction of a root canalled tooth (which had a normal dental X-ray). It corresponded to the Lung on the Tooth-Organ Meridian Chart as described in my article, “Asthma: Are We Missing Something?” For more information, refer to my books, Accidental Cure, and AcciDental Blow Up in Medicine.

Acupuncture Meridian Assessment (AMA) can translate the medical history, physiology and biochemistry of individual patients to a frequency (think musical) scale based on meridians: 5,000-year- old technology. Some common unsuspected Dental/Medical Complex Problems are listed below:

I will present to a large medical group, A4M/MMI in Boston in September 2022, on the topic, “Dental as a Missing Link for Medical Failures: Lyme, Cancer, Neurological Disorders and More.” My lecture will focus on evidenced based case studies to connect the dots of the Medical and Dental (MAD) disconnection, lymphatic drainage to the brain, breast, thyroid, etc. by understanding and using acupuncture meridian assessment as a guiding tool. Some of the cases include Mixed Connective Tissue Disorder, Malignant Hypertension, Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the thumb, Ulcerative Colitis, Lyme and coinfections, Chronic Fatigue, Adrenal Burnout, Breast Cancer, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Rheumatoid Arthritis, psychiatric problems, nephrotic syndrome, asthma, Empty Seller Syndrome, cancer of the tongue and oral cavity, lung cancer with brain metastasis, brain tumor, seizures, and ALS. You can read more on these cases in my books and in my articles/blog on my website.

The case study below shows a man with a long history of ulcerative colitis who also had persistent chronic pus draining from his thumb. His chronically infected thumb eventually turned into squamous cell carcinoma and it was recommended for amputation. His initial AMA evaluation indicated he needed parasite medications for his ulcerative colitis, and after treatment, his 40-point AMA evaluation showed only his dental/lymph meridian was out of balance, represented by the blue bar on the left, after intense parasite cleansing and detoxification. It took over a year to convince his biological dentist to remove his one infected tooth which appeared normal on cone-beam CT dental X-ray. A Dental DNA test showed many different microorganisms hidden in his normal healthy-appearing tooth. Even CBCTs can be misleading.

Some of my articles covering the importance of Medical and Dental (MAD) disconnections are:

I have been corresponding with a Canadian dentist, Dr. George Paul Greenacre from Ottawa, who points out the importance of the Mouth-Brain and Gut-Brain connection, regulated by the Trigeminal nerve and the Vagus nerve as an integral part of our Central Brain. Sir William Osler, the founder of Johns Hopkins, stated that the “Mouth is the Mirror of all Disease.” Dr. Norman Doidge discussed the power of the tongue and the brainstem’s ability to create new brain cells and new neural connections. The oral cavity represents about 46% of the brain’s sensory cortex and motor cortex area. According to Greenacre, he described 5 major brains: 1) Central Brain, 2) Mouth Brain, 3) Gut Brain, 4) Spinal Brain, and 5) Breath Brain.

When a patient does not respond to standard medical care, it is a time think dental, parasites and fungal! Medical Acupuncture on the Dental-Oral Cavity Meridian will guide you beyond Dental X-ray or CBCT scan. Some of the key points of the Medical and Dental (MAD) Disconnection are listed below. The left column represents medical-related factors and the right column represents dental-related and overlapping problems. Applying this information with patients takes some time to learn the science, tools and techniques, practice AMA, connect the dots, and prioritize and treat in the proper sequence.

As shown in the figure above, multiple factors are contributing to Lyme, Post-Lyme, cancer, neurological disorders and more!
