The truth about a root canal procedure exposed

“The discovery of truth is prevented more effectively, not by the false appearance things present and which mislead into error, not directly by weakness of the reasoning powers, but by preconceived opinion, by prejudice.” – Arthur Schopenhauer

How do we decide what is correct and what is false in medicine and dentistry? In other words, how do we decide who or what to believe when it comes to healthcare, integrative or Western medicine? With so many opposing points of view on the same health topic how do we know which one to believe?

Conversely, if one chooses to follow a predominately mainstream medicine approach, then should all natural alternatives be discarded as useless? Naturally, the answer is, ‘of course not.’ There are good and bad in both camps. But how do you distinguish the good from the bad – the correct from incorrect?

Any deviation from these principles will often lead to false conclusions. (more…)

However, suppressed research dating as far back as the 1920′s shows that root canals may not be as safe as we are led to believe, and that they can in fact be detrimental to our health. Here is an incredibly informative video that Dr. Mercola has put together to fully summarize the issue.

Please don’t blindly buy into the mentality that a root canal is your only option. In the United States alone, over 41,000 of these are performed per day and an estimated 25 million per year! OUCH!
