Are PatientConnect365 dental Reviews Marketing hype?
I have had 6 root canals all upper lost two of those teeth and now a 3 one #4 is failing and infected.
A top holistic dentist, put those teeth of mine on the Most Wanted List to remove from my mouth but I've procrastinated and now in an emergency situation since # 4 wants to turn it's self in and get removed.
Timing has it that the top holistic dentist I consulted with and did testing with is out of the country right now and the Huggins Applied Healing organization has recommended another dentist who has 90+ glowing reviews on PatientConnect365. I had visited a local conventional dentist who had 100's of positive reviews from this same outfit.
Does anyone here know the scoop on whether or not those are for real- real reviews of just marketing hype?
Supposedly there are only about 100 top holistic dentists in the USA. How to be sure one will be best and how to afford the rates they charge? I want good care but we do not want to gamble with our hard earned savings.
I am all for a workman is worthy of their hire and want quality work at what I understand would be a higher price. But to extract my tooth is over 10 times more $$ than what my local conventional dentist is charging. What with Cone x-rays and cutting edge Plasma Rich Growth Factor (PRGF) treatment this expense may be reasonable but I have no frame of reference for this.
On top of that concern the antibiotic amoxicillin 500 mg in pill form had horrible fillers that did not agree with me and I am now trying a liquid form of amoxicillin 400 mg per teaspoon 4 teaspoons a day. Was talking a berberine a Chinese herbal Coptis and rinsing with warm salt water before when I suspected an infection because of how my # 4 tooth was feeling.
Other doctors have offered suggestions of 3 cloves of garlic 4 times a day and as much Vit C as can tolerate (I can not tolerate it in many forms since is causes me bowel bleeding). Have upped high C foods to try and help some. A metabolic counselor suggested Modified Citrus Pectin (I have PectaSol-C) and or Zolite but I am unsure why or how to use them. To Detox some weeks ago and one other time recently I did take some powdered Charcoal but that takes all meds out and not sure that is right for me now.
Am taking SACCHAROMYCES BOULARDII aka S. Boulardii that can, I am told, be taken along with the Amoxicillin due to it being a yeast. I was told to take a 100 billion form of probiotic 4 hrs or more away from the Amoxicillin. Just not sure how to coordinated all these ideas under emergency pressure. I think that my tooth has drained out some toxins because I had had strong metal taste in my mouth about a week a go. Also strange sensations coming from that tooth like something is swelling or caught in it. drinking lot of filtered water and taking detox baths of ACV or Epson salts baking soda and lavender drops or hydrogen peroxide (food grade). Eating lighter Paleo diet and doing some green juicing and blending drinks and trying to get a little more rest (sleep issues) but still stressing too much and trying to prepare for travel out of state and make arrangements for eating soft foods while traveling.
I am hypothyroid have had aching joints since trying to oil pull with coconut oil last fall- now wonder if I pulled toxins out from under my teeth that have caused that joint pain. I have had chronic rashes, insomnia, ear wax and various chronic pains some muscular skeletal and some internal issues blood clot and ulcer etc after cancer and cancer treatment at Cancer Treatment of America CTCA 8 years ago. CTCA is more holistic but not enough. Have been trying to recover my health ever since. I strongly believe that my 6 root canal teeth are factors of my health. My SAD diet (plus sugar and carb addictions) and work-a-holic inactive life style were certainly factors as well. By the Grace of God I am still here and have learned a lot applied some and want keep growing and sharing through all this.
Praying for guidance from my Lord and seeking any helpful ideas or knowledge of those online dental reviews.
