The Hidden Source of Heart Attacks/Strokes: NO ONE TOLD YOU…YET

5:30 Remedies to prevent heart attack from infected teeth

In this video, we’re going to talk about a surprising hidden source of heart attacks. In his book "Hidden Epidemic," Dr. Thomas Levy reported that 78% of patients with myocardial infarctions and occluded arteries also had DNA of pathogens typical for infections in root canal-treated teeth.

This type of chronic infection is known as chronic apical periodontitis and often has no symptoms. As you’re chewing, you push bacteria deeper into the lymphatic system, affecting the heart and causing other inflammatory issues like arthritis.

Infected teeth are often missed on routine dental X-rays. C-reactive protein levels in your blood are a biomarker for inflammation and can sometimes signify infected teeth.

The infection can be in the tooth, gums, jaw, or tonsils. Pathogens in your mouth can create significant oxidative stress and free radical damage. One of the ways your body responds is by developing clots. Other symptoms include fatigue, chronic inflammation, jaw problems, and tooth sensitivity.

To strengthen your immune system and prevent the spread of bacteria from your teeth, take 1 to 2 grams (500 mg a few times a day) of liposomal vitamin C. Vitamin C works as an antioxidant to lower oxidative stress in the body.

Liposomal vitamin C is one of the only forms that can work at the intracellular level. Liposomal vitamin C will not cause diarrhea, even when taken in large quantities.

      What is important is to get regularly checked. They say x-rays are good for 3-5 years. Maybe x-rays should be done more often to check for symptom-free infections underneath the gums, especially if you have root canals.

    I had a dentist leave alot of infection under the teeth after a root canal, and filling repairs. The root canal sight pain took three days to die down. He claimed this was nowmal, but I wonder. Ever since, my teeth became painfull and simple cleaning required so many shots to numb, my face felt as if it would slide off, and nittous oxide just to control the pain. AND, I developed a severe fear of the drill. Since then, I am put under for any dental work. I cannot hear or see a drill. Strangely, all my teeth rotted out, no matter how well I cleaned them. I wear inplants now, and do not miss my teeth, and all of that pain.

    • @mega408 on March 16, 2024 at 3:23 pm

      I started having severe teeth problems as you described but I fixed it. Here’s what happened:

      First tooth near the front was rotting from the inside with no pain. Dentist caught it and fixed it. He showed me the picture. It was almost gone.

      Second tooth towards the back started doing the same thing. I needed a crown.

      More teeth started getting loose. I thought for sure I needed to remove them.

      I was already taking massive amounts of vitamin b complex. Then, I added a little bit of vitamin A, zinc, copper, calcium, D3, chromium, k2, and the aminos l-glutamine and l-glycine.

      I also reduced stress by a lot and forced myself to sleep (or just lay there in bed) for around 10 hours every night. (But be active when I’m out and about… daily mile walks, bike rides, weight lifts)

      I saw things reversing within a month. Basically I’m old and stress was killing me.

      Today, I’m continuing to relax more and do the same things (sleep well and daily activities) and teeth are just about back to normal.

    I had a filed root canal (5 roots instead of 4 -1989 x-ray tech did not see the extra) – so root canal done and I went on my merry way – no pain, no discomfort. BUT! I started getting bronchitis and pneumonia twice a year like clockwork and thought I was developing some sort of COPD or other issue. Then I started getting an abscess around the root canaled molar. Come to find out – the infection I had been carrying for 29 year was eating away at my jawbone and leaking every night into my bronchial tubes – causing persistent infection. Got the tooth extracted and viola! No more colds. Take care of your teeth and gums people.

    Thank you Dr, Berg. I live in England and we are short on dentists. I cannot afford private and even they have a waiting time of up to 15 weeks! Unfortunately our once upon a time fantastic NHS has been corrupted and no longer offers services such as the emergency NHS dentist. I have been living with often a times torturous tooth pain in the last 3 years ( I am on their emergency list as well, which I have been informed could take years!) and ended up four times in the emergency ward, where they no longer are able to offer you dental help, but instead you go home with pharma pills. During these attacks I have been going through heart pain. I have helped myself by consuming daily fresh lemon juice and I also used freshly ground turmeric to brush my gums and teeth with, which has helped enormously. Turmeric combined with black pepper has been part of my diet in the last two decades and has cured many issues I once had.

      The fresh lemon juice might be the source of extreme sensitivity to tooth roots. Also fresh lemon juice eats the enamal. Drink the Tumeric in warm water but stop with the fresh lemon juice. Watch Dr. Ellie Philips and her protocol for remineralizing your tooth surface and improve dental healh. She has an incredible story of a young woman who sucked on fresh lemons and had severe root pain as a result. Dr. Philips was able to save the rest of her teeth! Hope this helps.
