SMART Amalgam Removals Part 2: Galvanic Toxicity


In Part 1 of this two-part series on biological dentistry, I discussed how to be SMART when it comes to amalgam removal. If you haven’t read that informative article yet, be sure to check it out! In Part II, I’ll discuss how metal in your mouth can throw you off balance in another way that you may not be aware of. This is called galvanic toxicity and it has to do with how metal in your mouth can affect the electrical currents within your own body.

The Body Electric

Did you know that you have electric currents pulsing through your body right now?

To paraphrase Italian particle physicist and inventor Dr. Carlo Rubbia, we are really only 1 billionth physical matter. The rest is energy!

While that may be a little too abstract to really wrap our heads around, what we can conceptualize is the electrical components of our bodies. We know that the brain operates by way of “neuron firings” and that the whole nervous system itself functions through nerve, i.e. electric, impulses.

According to the research of visionary scientist Royal Raymond Rife, “the body is comprised of electro-magnetic transmission and communication.” Rife also claimed that all functions at the biological level have corresponding electromagnetic activities that correspond with it.

Rife created a whole branch of natural medicine called electromedicine. He basically said that “when you target a living cell with the precise frequency it needs, it will respond favorably, and health can be restored in an amazingly short period of time.” Electromedicine is the foundational principle for popular energy medicine modalities such frequency harmonics therapy, far infrared sauna, light and sound therapy, Bio mat and PEMF therapy.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) also relies on the presence of “energy flows” or “chi flows.” The objective of any TCM-based modality, whether it is acupuncture, qi gong or EFT/tapping, is to open up areas in the body where energy may be blocked, stagnant or imbalanced and get the flow going again in a balanced way. This is when health can be restored.

Galvanic Toxicity: How Metal Can Affect Your Electric Currents

There are many modalities that can help restore proper energy flow in the body (we just mentioned a bunch of them), but there are even more factors that can throw this flow off. This includes the presence of metals in the body, especially in your mouth!

Oral-originating electrical imbalance is called galvanic toxicity or oral galvanism. This occurs when saliva comes in contact with the metal in the mouth and creates its own electric current.

Be sure to check out my recent podcast interview with Dr. Stuart Nunnally where he talks about galvanic currents as well as safe and SMART mercury amalgam removals.

This current can sometimes interfere with the subtle electrical currents that already exist in your body that we just talked about above. When the inherent currents and the imposed currents intersect, this can overstimulate the nervous system, especially the brain. When this happens, a myriad of symptoms may ensue including insomnia, heart arrhythmias, headaches or a slightly metallic taste in the mouth. You may also experience a slight electrical charge when you use metal utensils for eating.

Oral galvanism can cause more serious side effects as well. According to a 2008 study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, individuals with autoimmune conditions may experience enhanced disease conditions as a result of titanium implants in the oral cavity. Others may experience neurological problems like brain fog or anxiety/depression, chronic fatigue or even seizures. 

And then there is the possible connection to Breast Cancer. The Chinese Meridian System states that every tooth is connected to a corresponding organ in the body. When metal is inside or replacing a tooth, this can have an effect on energy (or “chi”) flow to the breasts as well. For example, the 4th and 5th teeth on either side of the center teeth (left and right, top and bottom) are directly connected to the mammary area in the Chinese meridian system. I can’t tell you how many women with Breast Cancer I have counseled who also have issues in these particular areas of the mouth.  

What Can You Do About Oral Galvanism?

Dr. Stuart Nunnally, featured in the last article, has worked with patients in the removal of amalgam fillings for decades. He learned about the issues surrounding galvanic toxicity from his mentor and friend, Dr. Hal Huggins.

“If you have several metals together, they produce a current and they are known to be very disruptive to the other currents that we have in us,” Dr. Nunnally explained in a recent interview. “[T]hey interfere with acupuncture meridians. They interfere basically with the flow of energy.”

According to Dr. Nunnally, Dr. Huggins knew that the currents of introduced metals run in microamps (that is one millionth of an amp). The brain, on the other hand, runs on nanoamps (that is one billionth of an amp). Huggins hypothesized that the discrepancy may cause some “serious issues with the brain.” Nunnally says that Huggins began to observe some of his patients who had mercury fillings, crowns and other metal in the mouth have some of the side effects mentioned above.

Over the years, Dr. Nunnally has also observed the same thing. But has also observed that the side effects of multiple metals in the mouth (most amalgam fillings have several different types of metals) will go away when they are removed.

One way that Nunnally determines which oral metals may be problematic is through the use of an amalgameter. This is a specially-designed ammeter tool created by Dr. Huggins in the 1980’s. The amalgameter measures the flow of electrical current through an affected tooth. It can help a biological dentist determine which teeth may be problematic in terms of electrical cross currents.  

“There are some gold crowns that are safe, for example. Alloy with platinum seems to be very safe and [Huggins] was a big fan of those,” Nunnally recalls. “We like to use [the] meter and check every metallic crown or filling to see what the charge is on it. That is how we determine which ones we are going to remove and which ones we are going to let stay.”

Take Care of Your Oral and Energetic Health to Prevent Breast Cancer

You absolutely MUST address the health of your teeth as well as the health of your energetic system (including your nervous system and brain) if you want to prevent Breast Cancer. Sometimes you are able to heal imbalances on both of these fronts. You can do this by addressing the metals that exist in your mouth. Whether you are concerned about mercury toxicity, galvanic toxicity or metal allergy, consider connecting with a legitimate biological dentist in your area in order to discovery your options.

Your whole body will thank you for it!
