It’s been said every decision made is a choice AGAINST something, as much as it is FOR something else. When I made the seemingly positive choice to have extensive dental work between 2010-2013, I didn’t realize I was simultaneously choosing to hinder my #immunesystem .
I now understand #LymeDisease attacked my #jawjoints first. I was in constant #pain & woke up with #headaches & stiff neck. I cracked 5 #teeth in 6 months from #bruxism . My #jaw continually locked closed & a chiropractor would need to adjust it to re-open it. What do you do when your JAW wears out?!
Back then I didn’t know I had #lyme & I was diagnosed with #TMJ . After much research, I decided to upon noninvasive #neuromuscular#dentistry . My displaced jaw was shifted over time using a myriad of #dental appliances. Then I needed #braces & a bunch of #crowns to support the new jaw position. It took nearly 3 years to complete. Super painful & NOT cheap!
What they don’t tell you is that #metal in your #mouth can interrupt energetic #meridians & contribute to #HeavyMetalToxicity . Many #crowns are fused to metal & #AmalgamFillings contain #mercury (it’s poisonous)! You may still have #amalgam hiding under beautiful crowns! #Rootcanals are essentially dead teeth left festering inside your #jawbone - perfect places for #LymeBacteria to congregate and prevent your recovery!
It’s also been said that you must make a choice to take a chance, or your life will never change. So yesterday I made a drastic choice to take a desperate chance on increasing the odds of my healing. In spite of the huge dental investment that gave me a beautiful smile I loved, I decided to have all my amalgams removed & replaced, my metal-fused crowns removed, my permanent #MetalRetainer removed, & my root canals #extracted . I had the procedures done in Mexico because #dentistry is much cheaper there, there are skilled #BiologicalDentists just over the US border, & they use #PlateletRichPlasma (PRP) in the sockets.
I’m a little bit toothless for a period of time while I heal, but if there is one thing I have learned in these last 11 years, it’s that vanity is worth nothing if it costs you your #health .
“In the end, I learned I am stronger than I ever thought and asking for help is OK.
Everyone deserves to feel happy and healthy. Don’t ever be afraid to fight for your happiness and appreciate the moments that challenge you because they’ll make the great moments that much sweeter.”
@earthtoash1ey’s words are surely something to ponder on. What challenge are you walking through right now? How can you come to appreciate it?
Thoughts, so many thoughts... 🤔
FINALLY getting around to the Meet & Greet photos from Uprise 2018.
This was one of the most exciting M&G's of the event. @castingcrownsofficial was the first band I seen as a Christian.. and as I journey on my walk with Christ, their music has helped me in COUNTLESS ways.
I have seen them live multiple times, but this time was different. I just recently sang their song, "God of all My Days" in Church.. and God helped me! Hearing that song live.. really touched me. The bands new song, "Only Jesus" has been in my mind ever since.. it's so deep and so powerful. Last, but CERTAINLY not least.. I have never seen this band do signing.. usually its photos only. Well, they signed.. I clear coated my phone case and it will be a keepsake forever. God is working through this band and I could never praise Him enough for all He has done through their ministry! #CastingCrowns#TheVeryNextThing#Uprise#GodOfAllMyDays#OnlyJesus#Crowns#GodIsWorking#VIP#Memories
SWIPE LEFT FOR BEFORE. This patient was unhappy with her upper front teeth. We used clear braces to achieve this quickly and discreetly! 😀 The patient also decided to whiten to achieve her perfect smile! Work carried out by our dentist Haza 🌟
