Years ago, if you went to a doctor for suspected heart disease, the last thing he would have thought to do was refer you to a specialist in gum. These days, however, things have changed, as science continues to shed light on the connection between these two seemingly unconnected regions of the body. (Source) The same goes for pregnancy, diabetes, and a number of other conditions.
In the past five years, interest in possible links between the mouth / dental health and body health has exploded. The truth is that your oral health is much more important to be noticed, and they are increasingly aware of the connection between body and mouth, teeth and gums.
What conditions may be associated with oral health? (We encourage you to seek more sources, as they are plentiful.)
endocarditis – An infection of the inner lining of the heart. This can happen when germs and bacteria in the mouth spread through his bloodstream and stick to damaged areas of the heart. (Source) (Source)
Cardiovascular disease – As mentioned in the first paragraph, research shows that heart disease, clogged arteries, and stroke may be associated with a deterioration in oral health. (Source)
Diabetes – Studies have shown that gum disease is more frequent and severe among people with diabetes. Research also shows that people who have gum disease are more difficult to control their levels of blood sugar. (Source) (Source)
HIV / AIDS – Oral problems as mucosal lesions are more common in people with HIV / AIDS. (Source)
Alzheimer’s disease – Tooth loss before the age of 35 years could be a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease. (Source)
These are just some of the many health problems related to oral health.
“Doctors are taking a more holistic approach to the overall health of their patients.” -. Cram Sally, DDS, PC, consumer adviser for the American Dental Association
“Conditions in the mouth have a profound potential for reflect and influence the health of the whole person. interruptions in the flow of energy through the mouth can affect remote regions of the body and disruptions elsewhere can manifest in the mouth. These relationships are the result of communication between acupuncture meridians and teeth. “- the Center for Holistic Dentistry
This is the belief of a growing number of dentists share these days, and with all emerging connections between the mouth and overall health body, it is not hard to see why. That’s not the only reason the meridian dentistry is derived from the ancient Chinese culture. They, among others, believes that there is a global system of power distribution throughout the body, where the “qi” or “vital energy” flows through the body. The individual meridians are often described as vessels carrying, holding, or transport this life force energy and blood and other body fluids around the body, almost like a circulatory system.
You can read more about this belief in the Academy Classical Oriental Sciences.
This is exactly why we are seeing a growing number of dentists that offer a holistic type of practice using these methods to treat patients. A simple search on Google would suffice to show that.
here are some links to scholarly articles on this old system. The general consensus seems to be that their teeth are very important as they are connected to various organs throughout the body. the health of the teeth, according to this system, and some science today plays a much more important role in maintaining the general welfare than previously thought paper. According to the meridian system, poor dental health can equate to poor health of organs and energy flow blockages.
Below is a chart that shows how everything is connected shown.
There is a lot of information out there regarding the extraction of wisdom teeth trial, and many people are you beginning to question its merits, especially if recommended as a routine precaution. Many experts seem to agree that there is little evidence to support the removal of wisdom teeth that are not causing any pain or discomfort.
For example, a report by the dentist Jay Friedman in the American Journal of Public Health, reveals that 67 percent or more of the preventive wisdom teeth extractions judgment are unnecessary. The article explains that most wisdom teeth pain and disease around are not caused by the teeth themselves, but rather the symptoms that arise from their surgical removal., Which some number in the many, long term and permanent.
The Cochrane Library published a review led by Teodoro (Dirk) G. Mettes Medical Center Nijmegen Radboud University in the Netherlands, which describes how the so-called wisdom teeth have the potential to cause number of problems, including inflammation or ulceration of the gums around the teeth, these cysts or tumors, and damage, damage or disease in the second molars. However, many people can go their entire lives without these teeth cause any problems.
Basically, it is not known well enough, and remove them mostly on the basis of temporary discomfort and pain they cause. But according to the meridian system, the wisdom teeth play an important role in the overall health of the body.
Why these teachings resonate with so many people?
There are a number of reasons, one is the fact that much of what has been written in the ancient oriental philosophy, mysticism, and much more, has also been expressed by diverse cultures throughout human history. Another factor to consider is that many of these teachings have been verified by modern science, quantum physics is just a great example. What we perceive as our physical material world is not really physical or material at all (read more here) – far from it. This has been shown again and again by multiple physical Nobel Prize (among many other scientists around the world) winner, however, he was known and described in various ancient texts long before this validation “official”.
Another great example is meditation. It is only recently that science has identified the various benefits associated with it health, once again, several ancient texts and described. A couple of examples might be doing meditation literally the brain, or its effect on the gastrointestinal tract.
The examples are endless, which, along with some findings in science today, lends more credibility to a practice that has rarely been given it a second current thinking.
