Hi everyone! I hope you don't mind me reaching out to share my story and ask for your help on my first step to recovery and wellness.
Did you know your oral cavity can impact on your physical and mental health? Neither did I until 6 years ago. I have lived with a debilitating chronic condition 'fibromyalgia' for a decade, and serious dental issues for 6 years, which I strongly believe significantly contribute to my chronic condition.
I travelled the UK meeting many dentists, and the differing opinions of treatment options were staggering.
My goal is to be infection, metal and toxin free in my mouth, a solid foundation to build on for health optimisation. This will require an intense supplement and detox protocol, which is of equal importance to the dental surgery.
For 16 years I set up and voluntarily ran two not for profit organisations, one dedicated to baby loss, the second campaigning for improvements in elderly care. I am passionate about contributing to society and helping others, but for now my project is ME!
My treatment plan:
Four root canals with infections undetected for at least 6 years. These will be extracted using ozone therapy to kill hidden bacteria.
I have a highly toxic mercury vapour reading. My amalgams and defective composites need replacing using the SMART protocol for safety.
Metal in jaw bone from a dental procedure approximately 30 years ago needs surgically removing. I had a violent reaction to this which left me with temporary facial paralysis, and for 6 years pain, numbness, tingling in the whole left side of my face 24/7.
Finally, there are cavitations requiring treatment.
It feels like a mountain ahead of me to climb. Daunting, scary and overwhelming at times, but exciting too!
By sharing my story I hope to raise valuable awareness on all things teeth, to help educate and empower others, and also to protect the dental health of younger generations.
I decided to monitor, record and share the whole process I am going through, to raise awareness of the importance of good oral health and finding a good dentist, especially for people with chronic health conditions.
Monies raised on my Go Fund Me Platform will help towards the cost of the dental surgery and ongoing essential supplementation/
detox/therapy and healing protocol, which will be ongoing for as long as it takes.
Dental work and pre/ post treatment supplementation go hand in hand, and essential for someone who has been living with long term chronic illness and dental infections.
Thank you for taking time to read my story, and a big thank you to Joe Casey for all the support and encouragement and also to those on a similar journey to me, who message me, which makes this feel a slightly less lonely journey.
