I have had multiple health problems I can’t explain and neither could my doctors. Massive hives, pain in my muscles and joints, exhaustion. The doctors said it was all in my head, though I’m not sure how I could manufacture hives which they could see. Then they said I should just eat better and exercise more. I did. I went on a strict diet. I began exercising every day. I lost 40 pounds, which was fantastic, but that didn’t stop the hives, pain, and fatigue. I decided I’d have to figure things out myself. I did some research and learned about the Cliffords’ Test. It took me a while to find a doctor who did them. When I took it, the results showed I have massive metal sensitivities and allergies. I thought about all my dental work. I have silver fillings, several metal-based crowns, and even a titanium implant (which I told is a rare allergy but apparently I’m rare. I spoke with my dentist about it and he said he doesn’t put much stock in that test and I need to give all this up. But, how do you forget about pain and hives?
Would a holistic dentist take me seriously?
You have been through a lot. I’m especially sorry those who’ve been given the task of looking after your health haven’t taken you seriously. You will find that Holistic dentists are better in situations like this. They will also take precautions based on the results of your Clifford Material Reactivity Test.
How Can a Holistic Dentist Help with Metal Sensitivities?
Every bit of your dental work which you have can be replaced with metal-free work. We’ll start with your filings. They can be switched out for mercury-free composite fillings. Here you’re at an advantage if you do go to a holistic dentist because they know how to do a sanitary amalgam removal.
The metal-based crowns can be switched out for all-porcelain crowns. Even your dental implant, which is normally very safe when it comes to allergies, can be replaced with a zirconia dental implant. Unfortunately, once you removed the implant you will need some bone grafting done to build the bone back up. Otherwise, there won’t be enough bone to support the implant. Fortunately, that’s now an easy procedure.
Though it sounds like a lot of work, the good news is if this is the root of your issues you will finally feel better.
