I had a root canal for a painful tooth about 6 years ago. Afterwards all kinds of health issues started to appear in addition to ongoing sensitivity to the involved tooth.
About 18 months ago nasal polyps and intense, morning only, drainage and inflammations of the sinuses started. The left nasal passage was about 60% obstructed. I opted for no surgery.
Last Saturday night the tooth was more than usually uncomfortable when I went to bed. Intuitively, I did a bunch of Alastair McLoughlin’s scar moves over the gum both mesial and lingual. I woke up at 3:00 AM and my nasal passage was 100% blocked. All morning long my sinuses on that side screamed!
By Sunday afternoon the nasal passage was 100% clear, drainage was gone on Monday morning, and It’s been fine ever since.
I lost the link L to a You Tube interview of a cardiology professor who cited studies that revealed that 95% of root canals are infected and the same organisms found in periodontal ligament cultures are also cultured from coronary artery plaques. This makes me wonder about my development of A Fib. following the root canal? My stroke last September was from the A Fib.
If any group members take on a journey in this direction, please let me know what you experience yourself or with your patients.
Check with Alastair McLoughlin for his scar treatment protocol- that is what I used.
I think of three things as I reflect on this experience; 1. meridians pass through the teeth, 2. Bowen moves are vibratory and targeted over meridian points opposed to most massage strokes which are random and over vast anatomical structures, 3. And maybe there are “vibraceptors” in addition to proprioceptors, mechanoreceptors, nociceptors, stretch receptors, etc? these “Vibraceptors may what our Bowen Techinique is affecting? - ,just some rambling thoughts.
