Root canals are a common dental procedure used to save teeth that have been damaged due to decay or infection. But did you know that this seemingly harmless procedure could potentially be the root cause of certain illnesses? In the Hay House HEAL Summit, Dr. Veronique Desaulniers, The Breast Cancer Conquerer, dives into this topic and sheds a light on the potential connection between root canals and chronic illnesses.
Root canal therapy is designed to remove infected or dead tissue from inside a tooth in order to prevent further infection or damage to the surrounding teeth and gums. While it is usually considered a safe procedure, studies suggest that there may be an undeniable link between root canals and chronic health issues like cancer, heart disease and autoimmune diseases.
Dr. Veronique Desaulniers believes that bacteria from the original root canal treatment may persist in the body and trigger inflammation leading to these chronic illnesses over time. To support her argument, she presents research suggesting that substances released by bacteria in infected teeth can travel through your bloodstream, affect other parts of your body and cause long-term damage if left untreated. She also goes on to discuss how commonly used procedures such as X-rays fail to identify such issues leaving medical practitioners unaware of the potential risks posed by root canals to their patients’ health.
