Tooth / Foot Connection

In Her Own Words

As far back as 1953, a medical doctor from East Germany, Reinholdt Voll, made the connection between the teeth and specific body organs and parts. Dr. Voll’s research proved that a seemingly insignificant process going on in the body (an interference field—an infection) is capable of producing a disturbance in the energy flow within in the acupuncture meridians creating symptoms distant from the site of the interference. This was the case with Illiana.

Illiana presented with an abscessed tooth, the lower right second molar. The tooth had a temporary filling in for six months in an attempt to allow the pulp or nerve to possibly heal avoiding a root canal procedure. Unfortunately, the pulp became infected and necessitated removal. The tooth was removed using my special post-extraction protocol of using ozone in the extraction site to cleanse the wound, colloidal silver to kill pathogens, and lastly a resorbable sponge (Gelfoam) saturated with tested homeopathic remedies. Applying this protocol insures virtually no or little post-extraction pain or swelling since it is designed to dramatically reduce infections. Of interest was the fact that when Illiana returned two weeks later, she stated that the pain in her feet had reduced by eighty percent. She did not share her feet problem because most people do not associate infected teeth with distant issues.

The Reflexology chart below shows the middle toe of each foot related to the teeth.

Basically Dr. Voll’s research showed that acute tooth issues relate to specific sites; however Dr. Voll also discovered that when a dental problem becomes chronic the targeted area can potentially spread anywhere. Infections with accompanying toxins spread through the lymphatic or drainage system and therefore can accumulate in any organ, tissue, or area of the body.

The next time you have an issue with chronic pain that your physician cannot locate the source, you must consider the mouth as the potential source.
