A caring NZ woman helping people smile again with affordable dentures faces 7 charges by the uncaring Min Of Health

A clear case in my opinion of disgruntled dentists being denied their bloated profits. Their prices are so high people just can’t afford them. It’s why they head off to other countries to get their dental work done, the fares & treatment still costing less than local charges. Covid’s put paid to that of course. In this case the woman’s only technical ‘crime’ if you like was to take the impressions (ie putting her fingers in patients’ mouths thereby risking health). WINZ however saw fit to sign her up and use her skills for their clients. Now MOH is prosecuting her. The MOH showed up in an unannounced raid, treating her like a criminal. The MOH is of course a corporation, being a ‘subsidiary’ of the NZ corporation (your ‘government’ in case you didn’t know) … it is guarding dental profits. Remember, they threatened to prosecute retired Dr Charles Baycroft for caring about NZers’ health, which is all this dear woman was doing. Watch the video in the article and see all the people she’s helped to smile again. Huge kudos to her. And thumbs down to the MOH. EWR

Wihongi-Matene says she was compelled to help her community because of the high cost of dental care. Last month The Hui revealed people in the Far North are pulling out their teeth with pliers because they can’t afford basic dental care. 

Dozens of people have turned out to a hui in Northland to show their support for a woman facing charges over claims she made hundreds of dentures without certification.

Kaikohe woman Claire Wihongi-Matene – known by locals as the “tooth fairy” – is facing seven charges brought by the Ministry of Health – one charge of claiming to be a health practitioner and six charges of performing a restricted activity. 

The 40-year-old mother of five faces up to $190,000 in fines and is awaiting trial. 

Wihongi-Matene has a fine arts degree and 10 years of experience making and repairing dentures in labs in Auckland and Hamilton. Her clients say she charged about a third of the price of dentists.

“My tupuna (ancestors) were tohunga (healers) – they helped heal people – and so I believe I was blessed with the ability to be able to help people and that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do,” she told The Hui.

Experts from 21 nations share how they are ending amalgam use in children

From toxicteeth.org

Experts hailing from 21 nations assembled in Bangkok last month to present case studies, exchange ideas and discuss strategies for ending the use of amalgam in “women, children and, through them, future generations.”

The World Alliance for Mercury-Free Dentistry, along with our cosponsor United Nations Environment, brought together many experts – including leaders from government, non-profit groups, dentistry, manufacturing, universities and the United Nations – to share their wealth of experience in contributing to the end of amalgam use for children and others in a variety of settings. For example:

  • In South Asia, both the Bangladeshi Armed Forces and the Indian Armed Forces provide only mercury-free fillings for their soldiers, sailors and airmen – and their families, including children.
  • In Central Africa, the Cameroun Baptist Convention ended amalgam use at its large hospital and its dental clinics that dot the nation – and they did it more than a decade ago!
  • In West Africa, the Nigerian federal Consumer Protection Council distributes a brochure urging parents and consumers to consider mercury-free fillings for themselves and their children.
  • In South America, Uruguay’s dental college has phased out teaching amalgam and started preparing all of its students for modern mercury-free dentistry.
  • In both the large European Union (half a billion people) and the island nation of Mauritius (1 million people), amalgam use for children has come to an effective end – giving the workshop participants prototypes for moving forward.

Workshop participants concluded that phasing out amalgam for children is feasible and can be done now. Indeed, a number of governments, dental associations, and non-profit groups indicated that this is their immediate goal – and the key transition step to an amalgam ban!

Why the Root Canal Is Brutal for Your Health

I can personally testify, following a 35 year old old root canal extraction my health vastly improved. Wish I’d known about these years ago, I never would have had one. EWR.


From Dr Mercola

Root canals are one of the most common and widespread dental procedures on the planet. Statistics presented by the American Association of Endodontists show that at least 15 million root canals are performed every year. That’s roughly 41,000 a day.   With these numbers, this procedure may seem routine or even harmless, but the root canal involves a number of health risks.

Root Canals Raise Red Flags for Your Health

Root canals can be detrimental to your health because the teeth affected have the potential to be “incubators” for toxic anaerobic bacteria, which can go into your bloodstream and cause severe medical conditions. What’s worse, you may not be able to detect these until years later.

How do these health risks make their way to your body? The answer lies in the way the procedure is carried out. In root canals, the dentist hollows out the tooth in question, then fills the empty chamber with a tough, plastic substance called gutta-percha, which comes from the latex of trees. It resembles rubber and is used for insulation and other dental procedures.  This cuts the tooth off from its blood supply and no fluids are able to circulate through the tooth.

The problems begin here as the middle portion of each tooth is home to the pulp chamber where blood vessels and nerves are. These portions are surrounded by two hard layers, namely the dentin and the white enamel. These have roots that descend into your jawbone and are held in place by the periodontal ligament.

Dental schools usually teach their students that there are one to four major canals connected to each tooth. In reality, however, there can be more. In these passageways, microscopic organisms can move about, and it’s where they can turn into harmful bacteria and hide from antibiotics and your body’s immune defenses.

These dangerous, virus-loaded organisms  can produce toxins, waiting for an opportunity to spread after hiding in the canals where no amount of sterilization has been proven effective on them.

Every single root-canaled tooth houses these bacteria around the apex and in the periodontal ligament. They may extend to the jawbone where they can cause cavitations, areas of unhealed bone often with infected tissue and gangrene. They normally form after tooth extractions or root canals.

97% of all Terminal Cancer Patients Previously Had This Dental Procedure

From getcancercure.com

Do you have a chronic degenerative disease? If so, have you been told, “It’s all in your head?” Well, that might not be that far from the truth… the root cause of your illness may be in your mouth. There is a common dental procedure that nearly every dentist will tell you is completely safe, despite the fact that scientists have been warning of its dangers for more than 100 years. Every day in the United States alone, 41,000 of these dental procedures are performed on patients who believe they are safely and permanently fixing their problem.

What is this dental procedure?

Root-canaled teeth are essentially “dead” teeth that can become silent incubators for highly toxic anaerobic bacteria that can, under certain conditions, make their way into your bloodstream to cause a number of serious medical conditions—many not appearing until decades later.

Most of these toxic teeth feel and look fine for many years, which make their role in systemic disease even harder to trace back.

Dr. Robert Jones, a researcher of therelationship between root canals and breast cancer, found an extremely high correlation between root canals and breast cancer. He claims to have found the following correlations in a five-year study of 300 breast cancer cases:

-93 PERCENT OF WOMEN WITH BREAST CANCER HAD ROOT CANALS
-7 PERCENT HAD OTHER ORAL PATHOLOGY
-TUMORS, IN THE MAJORITY OF CASES, OCCURRED ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE BODY AS THE ROOT CANAL(S) OR OTHER ORAL PATHOLOGY

Sadly, the vast majority of dentists are oblivious to the serious potential health risks they are exposing their patients to, risks that persist for the rest of their patients’ lives. The American Dental Association claims root canals have been proven safe, but they have NO published data or actual research to substantiate this claim.

Fortunately, I had some early mentors like Dr. Tom Stone and Dr. Douglas Cook, who educated me on this issue nearly 20 years ago. Were it not for a brilliant pioneering dentist who, more than a century ago, made the connection between root-canaled teeth and disease, this underlying cause of disease may have remained hidden to this day. The dentist’s name was Weston Price — regarded by many as the greatest dentist of all time.

You’ll Never Have a Root Canal After Watching This – From a Medical Doctor and Two Dentists

A 10 minute clip interviewing “Dr. Thomas Levy, [cardiologist], discusses a topic from his recent book on root canals. Find out why he thinks the common procedure can be very dangerous and can actually lead to serious health problems down the road, [including heart attacks]. He mentions some interesting studies and examples that might make you think before getting a root canal yourself.”
http://www.ihealthtube.comhttp://www.facebook.com/ihealthtube

Here are two more compelling short videos from Medical Doctors on the topic:

http://www.ihealthtube.com Dr. Hal Huggins offers a safe alternative to root canals. He explains why they are dangerous and why it’s been hard to convince the dental association and others of that.

“In this educational video Dr. Matthew Carpenter illustrates the safe removal of a root canal tooth.” He also explains why you should consider not getting one.

Note: Dr Hal Huggins’ research identified the dangers of amalgam (mercury) fillings however the American Dental Association would not recognize this information and subsequently set about to destroy him. He  passed away late 2014, however his work continues. You can find out more about his pioneering work at the links below.

Your Amalgam Fillings Release 4 to 40 mcg of Mercury Vapour per Day … Why You Should Replace Them

By Elisha McFarland (NaturalHealth365) “Research at the University of Calgary, Faculty of Medicine and other prominent medical schools, have demonstrated that mercury vapor continuously escapes from a dental amalgam and 80 percent of this vapor is immediately absorbed through the lungs and into the bloodstream. Once in the blood, mercury vapor enters into the cells almost immediately.

Mercury vapor from dental amalgam fillings is the primary source of mercury contamination in most people. 80 percent of adults, specifically baby boomers, currently have amalgam fillings that will release from four to 40 micrograms of mercury vapor per day, depending on factors such as the number of fillings, filling size, teeth grinding and the presence of other metals in the mouth…”

Comment:

If you’re a Kiwi, there  are holistic Dentists here who can safely remove your amalgams. Contact me if you’ve not been able to locate one via google. I personally have had mine removed and know others who have also. It’s not rocket science really to figure that deadly mercury inside your head is not a good thing … surely. Like many things, it’s been so long the norm we’ve accepted it. A useful search to do is the history of the late Dr Hal Huggins who pioneered the alert for the dangers of amalgam in our teeth (videos also on Youtube). His journey will tell you much about why dentists stick with the mainstream stance that mercury in your teeth is perfectly safe.

To get you started with Dr Huggins, here’s a 5 minute clip and further links to read:

Dr. Weston Price DDS – Dental Health Industry Deception, Fluoride, Implants, Veneer, Amalgam, And Root Of Dental Problems

AGR Daily News

Dr. Weston Price DDS – Dental Health Industry Deception, Flouride, Implants, Veneer, Amalgam, And Root Of Dental Problems

Sally Fallon discusses the research work of a very courageous dentist  named Dr Weston Price DDS. He proves with photo’s in this presentation that demonstrate just how our supposedly ‘modern and civilized’ diet affects people in the first, and then the second generation in a very negative fashion, and how most of what is taught in dental schools is based on myths, misinformation and deception. Can you handle the truth, as taught by Dr. Price DDS?
We can turn this degeneration of our genetic expression around by learning from our elders, so to speak… the traditions of the indigenous people that Weston Price researched…They have much to teach us, if we will listen, hear and open our minds to their wisdom, Natures laws, and her bounty.

Why And How To Make Home Made, Fluoride Free Toothpaste, Plus Large Variety of Sources For Ingredients and/or Fluoride Free Toothpaste Provided

This will get the pro fluoride lobby hyperventilating, intent as they seem to enforce the status quo of fluoridated water, toothpaste, meds etc etc. upon all of us. I reiterate, let us choose for ourselves which chemicals to ingest. Enough’s been written about the dangers toxic chemicals pose for our health, long term … however for those who wish to continue ingesting them, they have the choice. Those of us who do not wish to would like the choice also. (Apologies for the spelling error in ‘fluoride’ … this is not my article so I cannot change it, it needs to be corrected at the source).  EnvirowatchRangitikei

AGR Daily News

Where does flouride come from? Flouride is a highly toxic, poisonous waste/garbage product produced by the aluminum, chemical fertilizer and nuclear industries. As a man made chemical, it is used to produce deadly rat poison and insecticide. 

IS FLOURIDE IN TOOTHPASTE DANGEROUS? 


http://www.laytondental.com “Is Fluoride Dangerous in your water. Is Fluoride Dangerous in your toothpaste? Dr Layton DDS is a Holistic Dentist In Encinitas Ca. In this video he talks about the dangers of Fluoride in your toothpaste and in your water. Layton Dental is also known as a Natural Dentist and practices Metal Free Dentistry and is an expert in safe Mercury Removal. Dr Layton has videos demonstrating this procedure on his website. Layton Dental 285 N. El Camino Real, Suite 102, Encinitas, CA 92024 (760) 753-7700.”
Bottom line, this truth telling dentist is advising everyone to NOT allow children to be exposed to ANY flouride, at all.

The most dominant cause of heart attacks – this will surprise you

An article here from naturalhealth365: “A relatively small handful of the better heart surgeons in the country would insist upon an examination of the mouth as part of their pre-operative evaluations, especially when contemplating heart valve surgery. If there was a lot of gum disease and/or evidence of any infected teeth, this had to be resolved as best as possible before proceeding with the planned surgery.

dentist-674654_1280The very sound logic for this evaluation was that infection in the mouth could end up infecting the heart post-operatively. The fact that only a few surgeons have followed and continue to follow this protocol remains clear evidence that even our finest and most respected physicians in the country remain largely unaware of this most critical mouth disease-heart disease connection…”

“Chronic periodontal disease has ultimately pointed the way to realize, along with the work of the pioneering researchers noted … [in the article], that the ultimate, most clinically devastating dental infection is the root canal-treated tooth. Huggins and Haley found potent pathogen-generated toxins in 100% of over 5,000 consecutive extracted root canal-treated teeth, while normal teeth extracted for orthodontic purposes demonstrated no such toxicity.

The simple fact, still remaining to be properly realized and embraced, is that nothing really comes close to the negative impact of root canal-treated teeth in terms of the numbers of people who end up with life-altering chronic degenerative diseases and early death”.
