Female: You’re listening to Let’s Talk Dentistry with Dr. Marvin. This show is sponsored by the Center for Natural Dentistry in Encinitas where they take a holistic approach to dentistry and your health.
Dr. Kellas: Welcome to Let’s Talk Dentistry. This is your host, Dr. Bill Kellas, sitting in for Dr. Marvin and my co-host, Dr. David Nelson.
Dr. Nelson: Good morning.
Dr. Kellas: Good morning. You know, you and I have spent more time in dentistry than I think most dentists.
Dr. Nelson: I know. We’ve been doing a lot of dentistry and recommending certain processes and support.
Dr. Kellas: Well, you know, I think that the most important doctor you have is a dentist because he can make you sick or he can help get you well and if you don’t get that right, all kinds of stuff comes out of that, right?
Dr. Nelson: That’s — how can a dentist make you sick?
Dr. Kellas: Well, it’s interesting. That’s probably — most people know about mercury fillings but…
Dr. Nelson: Yes.
Dr. Kellas: …but what very few people know about is nickel, crown, caps, bridges and root canals. You test — we actually have surveys that say one out of three women are allergic to nickel.
Dr. Nelson: Yes.
Dr. Kellas: And that’s if inexpensive earrings bother their ears. So how often do you see people allergic to nickel?
Dr. Nelson: All the time, especially I had a patient just last week or last two weeks, 11 year old came in.
Dr. Kellas: Right.
Dr. Nelson: And at four years old, her dentist decided to put some silver crowns on her molars.
Dr. Kellas: Yes, I saw that.
Dr. Nelson: And at four years old, about in that timeframe she started coming down with wheezing, asthma and…
Dr. Kellas: You called me.
Dr. Nelson: …sinus problems.
Dr. Kellas: You called me in to look at that.
Dr. Nelson: Yes, because I put the pieces together here and then I brought the pieces to the mother and said, “Here’s something that I think is going to fit this thing together because at four years old, when did you have this done?” And she said, “About four years old.” “And when did all these symptoms start?”
Dr. Kellas: Right.
Dr. Nelson: “Right after that.”
Dr. Kellas: That’s right.
Dr. Nelson: And so all this started proceeding and now she’s 11 and she’s having major problems with sensitivities, allergies, sinus problems, constant drip.
Dr. Kellas: And I find a lot…
Dr. Nelson: Mucus.
Dr. Kellas: …of people who have gluten intolerance tend to have nickel intolerance.
Dr. Nelson: Yes.
Dr. Kellas: They kind of tend to run together and I’m not saying always but it’s good correlation.
Dr. Nelson: I started — when she came in, I was — we were talking about some of the aspects of what sets this up – fungus and yeast, maybe some antibiotics and I said, “Dental can set this up. Have you had any dental work?” And I said, “Let me open your mouth.” I saw the three crowns.
Dr. Kellas: Yeah. Ain’t that something?
Dr. Nelson: And there’s a…
Dr. Kellas: And, of course, they’re opposing each other, which means…
Dr. Nelson: Yes.
Dr. Kellas: …when they go together, they make a battery. Put it this way, folks. If you can put aluminum foil in your mouth and it zaps you, that’s the early indicator you have a battery in your mouth.
Dr. Nelson: That’s right.
Dr. Kellas: Now, how do you get a battery? You can – mercury fillings and nickel. We actually test for voltage…
Dr. Nelson: Yes.
Dr. Kellas: …and vapor at the clinic to find out if you’ve got too much mercury and too much voltage. Why is that important, Dr. Nelson?
Dr. Nelson: Well, it starts – the voltage actually sets up the battery effect which actually pulls the metals into the tissues.
Dr. Kellas: Faster.
Dr. Nelson: Faster, yes.
Dr. Kellas: Not only that but it’s…
Dr. Nelson: Speed of light.
Dr. Kellas: It’s like having a crazy electro-acupuncturist in your mouth.
Dr. Nelson: Yes.
Dr. Kellas: And it starts shutting down systems. Now, you and I have looked at the teeth charts. How important are the teeth? If you have more voltage coming from your teeth and from your central nervous system, can that cause a problem?
Dr. Nelson: Oh, definitely. Major problem. And it sets up these neurological issues which means neurological could be twitching, could be issues with pain, inflammation throughout the body.
Dr. Kellas: Issues with tissues.
Dr. Nelson: Issues with tissues.
Dr. Kellas: You know, it’s…
Dr. Nelson: Because you start looking at – it’s a stressor. Let’s just focus on what these metals do and what dental has such a big bearing on is the stress on the cells and it starts to break down the cell membrane. It starts to break down the – affects the cell DNA, affects the cell mitochondria.
Dr. Kellas: So what kind of illnesses can they get from it? I mean, mercury can cause MS?
Dr. Nelson: MS, Parkinson’s, all the itises, all the itises.
Dr. Kellas: All the neurological…
Dr. Nelson: Neurological, yes.
Dr. Kellas: And the itises, itises because their reactivity. Now, if I take a look at the teeth, the ones that people break more than any other are the front four teeth.
Dr. Nelson: Yes.
Dr. Kellas: And those are the only teeth that drain through the sinus up into the brain and down because if you see the way the teeth are built, they come from the top down, the rest of them come from the side in. Now, those are the ones that boy, if those are lit, you can have mucus problems, sinus problems, headaches, stiff neck, back-type things. What other teeth do you see that can be major problems with people?
Dr. Nelson: The back molars.
Dr. Kellas: Now why are those such a big deal?
Dr. Nelson: Because there’s so much pressure on those back molars and stress on those back molars because of the jaw, the clenching and there’s a lot more work done on those teeth when we bite and eat.
Dr. Kellas: Well, I’ll tell you what, why don’t we go to Emily and see what she got to talk about? Emily, you got any questions going?
Emily: Yes, I do as a matter of fact.
Dr. Kellas: Alright. How can we help you?
Emily: Well, a while back you had a gentleman call in regards to him having some kind of symptoms with his nerves and you said that this mimics MS.
Dr. Kellas: Yes, it does.
Emily: So I was just wondering what the name of that was and what it can be done about it because I do go to your clinic. It’s just that this has come up and they’ve done MRIs and all kinds of things but they haven’t found anything.
Dr. Kellas: Well, you mean mimicking MS?
Emily: Well, I’m having trouble writing. My handwriting is really bad and my balance is really bad.
Dr. Kellas: Right.
Emily: I’m working on my balance but it just seems like I teeter a lot and I fall easily and I just don’t want to get hurt. The other night I fell out of bed and I kind of got nervous about that. I thought I’ve never fallen out of bed. I was having a dream that I was rolling. And I guess I rolled right off the bed.
Dr. Kellas: You kind of rolled. Well, I’ll tell you, the things that can cause MS, mercury fillings are probably number one.
Emily: Yes.
Dr. Kellas: In addition, root canals, the toxics from root canals can be more toxic than botulism.
Emily: Okay.
Dr. Kellas: And then chemicals would fall next because they may do attack your central nervous system, and then any of this stuff that has a structural problem. If you have a head, neck, bite problem and you can’t – and this is where chiropractic – this is where the doctors need to work together. Chiropractic cannot keep your head adjusted properly if it disagrees with your bite because all night long you grind your teeth and throw your neck back out.
Emily: Oh.
Dr. Kellas: So you have to get your head adjusted and then your bite adjusted so they agree and when that happens, then your bite relaxes and you don’t throw your neck out. If you’ve seen chiropractic, people can be treated over and over again, same thing each time. That’s a sign that you haven’t solved the problem. You’re just trying to fix the symptom.
Emily: Right. Is yawning a part of those problems at all?
Dr. Kellas: Yawning means your body’s low on potassium.
Emily: Okay.
Dr. Kellas: And what you’re trying to do is generate oxygen and most people who have MS or muscular-type issues where the nerve and muscle are involved want to yawn, stretch or cramp. And those are all to get more potassium in the system.
Emily: Oh, I see. And how about if you can’t yawn completely, like you try to yawn and it hurts your [?? 0:08:39]?
Dr. Kellas: Oh, alright. That just says your head’s forward and your head’s forward would cause your jaw to slide forward. In fact, anybody who wants to test this, you can test this. If you take your teeth and you put them together.
Emily: Yes.
Dr. Kellas: Like you kind of bounce them off each other. And then open it as far as you can go and see where your jaw hits and how far it opens. Now put your head back and now open your jaw as far as it will go and you’ll see that it’ll go farther.
Emily: Oh, okay.
Dr. Kellas: And that it hits in a different spot. Now the reason for that is your head dictates your bite position.
Emily: Okay.
Dr. Kellas: Because if your head’s forward, your bite slides forward. Now when it slides forward, you have what’s called condyle and your jaw will slide halfway out of condyle and it’s already half open so when you try to open your mouth, you’re only going to open it halfway.
Emily: Okay. So braces would not help a situation like that, right?
Dr. Kellas: No. Getting your head straight. You see what’s happened is you need to get the arch back in your neck and your head above your shoulders and here’s how you know you have your head above your shoulders. Your earhole should be right above your first rib or your shoulder.
Emily: Oh, okay.
Dr. Kellas: And if your earhole’s in front of your shoulder area, that tells me, we’ll say it’s an inch in front of your shoulder area. That’s the equivalent of putting a 10-pound shot put in your mouth. So what it does is you tighten up behind your neck and back what’s called your meningeal system best known for spinal meningitis and when that tightens down, it can cause head pressure, headaches, tightness in your neck, tightness in your low back all the way down to your tailbone.
Emily: Okay. So your ear, the opening of your ear should be right level with your shoulder.
Dr. Kellas: It should be above your first rib, that first rib that you actually feel on your shoulder.
Emily: Oh, okay, like the clavicle?
Dr. Kellas: No, the other side. In the back?
Emily: Oh, the trapezius.
Dr. Kellas: Yeah, it’s behind the trapezius. Well, the trapezius goes right over the first rib but the first rib is right in that area.
Emily: Oh, I see. Okay.
Dr. Kellas: Yes, your earhole should be above there. Now, if that’s not happening. It normally means you have what’s called a posterior or a back, C2 is backward and your head’s forward and that can set you up for osteopenia, osteoporosis and balance issues because the way your head’s in front of your body and knee problems because what happens with your knee is you keep trying to stop yourself from falling forward and that starts causing knee problems. So people who say, “Well, I have – my knees are really a problem.” No, your knees are normally a problem because your head’s not on straight.
Emily: Okay.
Dr. Kellas: And so if the head’s forward and to one side, it will cause a knee problem on that side that is forward too.
Emily: Okay.
Dr. Kellas: Did I make any sense?
Emily: Yes, it does make sense but I do go to a chiropractor although I go to a NUCCA chiropractor.
Dr. Kellas: Well, and I don’t have a problem with NUCCA chiropractor for keeping you stable but until you fix the whiplash, it takes a whiplash specialist to fix a whiplash. Until you fix the whiplash, you’re not going to get well.
Emily: Oh, I see. So…
Dr. Kellas: So right, I don’t have a problem with NUCCA as a maintenance-type thing but a whiplash takes a whiplash specialist because the reality is your vertebrae, just by what you’ve been saying and the way your bite works and everything else, your head’s in front of your body.
Emily: Okay.
Dr. Kellas: And that’s setting your balance all off. You cannot balance yourself with a 10-pound shot put in your mouth. You’ll start having balance issues.
Emily: Right.
Dr. Kellas: And your head’s on one side of the body and forward and while that happens, you’re going to have balance leaning to one side and forward and as you fall forward, then you can’t resolve the balance issue.
Emily: Okay.
Dr. Kellas: Did that make sense?
Emily: Yes, it does. I mean, the weight from the head is causing the balance issue then…
Dr. Kellas: Yes, you’re supposed to have an arch in your neck and an arch in your low back and if you don’t have that, you cause both balance problems, head/neck problems and dental problems and what people don’t realize is you get that bite out of whack long enough, you keep pounding on the same tooth long enough, you can cause a root canal tooth to go bad.
Emily: Oh. When it’s gotten to that stage, will you be able to fix it or…
Dr. Kellas: Well, here’s the thing, you don’t want to let it get to that stage. That’s why we like to get people when they’re having a acute problem, an immediate problem before it goes chronic because what happens when it goes chronic, I’ll describe. Well, say, you have a car accident, okay?
Emily: Right.
Dr. Kellas: And your head goes forward, or you fall off a horse or sports injury or whatever. Your head goes forward then your jaw goes forward then we start having bite problems and we start having digestive problems because your vagus nerve, which controls your digestion comes out of that area where your vertebrae’s off in your neck.
Emily: Okay.
Dr. Kellas: Now, your vagus nerve controls your digestion so you’re not going to digest so people have a car accident with a whiplash think everything’s fine for about a month and then all of a sudden they start getting headaches and feeling miserable. Right, Dr. Nelson?
Dr. Nelson: That’s right.
Dr. Kellas: And what ends up happening there is you end up recruiting new systems to go out. Now your digestion’s off. Well, your digestion’s off. Well, now you start growing fungus and pathogenic bacteria because they take over because you’re not digesting. So instead of digesting your food, you ferment and putrefy your food.
Emily: Alright.
Dr. Kellas: That poison goes into your system, starts causing liver problems, head problems, meningeal contractions. You start feeling achy and queasy and just and bad. So then what happens is you keep pounding around the same tooth because your neck’s off and you start having a knee problem and you start having the upper shoulder problem and the low back problem and before you know it, you’ve recruited all these things because you didn’t deal with the acute or the immediate problem.
Emily: Okay. So what happens when it becomes chronic?
Dr. Kellas: Well, when it becomes chronic you have to un-chronic it.
Emily: Oh, okay. [crosstalk] Dr. Kellas: In other words, if it’s out, the only difference between chronic and acute is chronic, you have to reverse everything that’s been screwed up and the longer it’s chronic, the more things you have to reverse and that’s why I say to people, “Don’t let things go chronic.” Now, how do you know it’s going to chronic? If you’re having the same problem for over 120 days, you’ve gone chronic because your cells regenerate about every 120 days.
Emily: Right, so…
Dr. Kellas: If your cells are generating in the same position, same problem that you had before then you’re setting yourself up. Your entire body regenerates every seven years. That’s why people – that’s why in the Old Testament, they used to have the Jubilee and all these other things every seven years. Why? Because whoever you put in jail seven years ago isn’t there anymore.
Emily: Yes, it makes sense. It all makes sense. Well, [crosstalk] Dr. Nelson: So one of the things, Emily, what we’d recommend then is get in to see Dr. Fogelman. Get that whiplash taken care of and then see Dr. Marvin for that bite adjustment.
Dr. Kellas: And if you don’t do the two together and this is where people go, “Well, what does it take to get your health fixed?” You got to do three things right. You got to do the right thing the right way…
Emily: Right.
Dr. Kellas: …in the right timing. And if you do any one of those wrong, you’re wrong and the reason you’re wrong is I can do the right thing the wrong way and it didn’t fix me. I can do the…
Emily: Yes.
Dr. Kellas: …wrong thing the right way and that’s not going to fix me. And I can do them in the wrong order, which is I try to get my bite balanced without fixing my head and all I do is put a crooked door into a crooked jam. You need to fix the jam and then put the door in so it fits.
Emily: Yes, and it all makes sense.
Dr. Kellas: Yes, see, it’s just doing the right thing, Emily, and that’s how you do it and that’s why I wrote the book, Detox or Disease and Surviving the Toxic Crisis to teach people why you do it the right way. Now, I don’t want to just say, “You got to do it the right way or you don’t get well.” I want them to read and understand.
Emily: Right.
Dr. Kellas: For example, a lot of doctors are out there saying, they’ll do a hair analysis or urine analysis or blood analysis and they’ll look and they’ll say, “You know what, you don’t have any mercury toxicity.” And now, we’ve gone back and studied the University of Chicago and University of Kentucky where they’ve actually had sheep and put for 29 days, they put mercury fillings in the mouth of sheep, okay?
Emily: Yes.
Dr. Kellas: And so what ends up happening is then they test on autopsy, they test the blood of the people. And I’ll give you an example. On page 99 in my Surviving the Toxic Crisis, the whole blood when it comes back says 9 nanograms. Well, that’s very little mercury so people wouldn’t think that was a problem. The urine is about half that or 4.7, okay?
Emily: Right.
Dr. Kellas: But the kidneys are 7,438. The kidneys are completely overwhelmed. Your stomach, 929. Your liver, 772. And what it’s saying is that your body’s going to hold the mercury in the tissue so you won’t see it in the hair and you won’t see it in the urine. The way we find it in the hair is we see aluminum in the hair. Now, how do we – why would aluminum coordinate with that? This will tie in Alzheimer’s because there are thione mercury, which blows out your detoxification system for heavy metals…
Emily: Right.
Dr. Kellas: …what’s called metallothionein. It blows it out and when it does, you start absorbing the mercury or the aluminum from your underarm deodorant, from the salt, from all the places where they put aluminum and then you show up with Alzheimer’s. And everybody goes, “I wonder where they got Alzheimer’s.” Well, probably from their mercury fillings. You see how one thing leads to another?
Emily: Yes.
Dr. Kellas: And what happens is they are tying in one thing as being the cause so they’ll say, “Aluminum causes Alzheimer’s because they correlate.” Well, correlation is not the same as causation.
Dr. Nelson: That’s right.
Dr. Kellas: Okay? The mercury caused you to blow out the metallothionein so you can’t detoxify heavy metals then you got a lot of aluminum then aluminum and mercury together can set up Alzheimer’s. I can tell you this, when my mercury was in me, two things happened. I had mood swings and depression-type things. Those are the two major things that happened. Now, I’m not a depressed kind of person but when I had my mercury fillings pulled out, I had 13 of them pulled out in five hours.
Emily: Oh my goodness.
Dr. Kellas: All pulled out the same day. I had nine shots of Novocain. I mean it was a grueling experience. For the next six months, I was depressed and angry and I had no idea why. And then, I discovered it was the mercury that had come out and it was causing my whole system to go. And I had that nervous system problem where my – I was unsure of my balance. I felt like there was a little vibration into me going all the time and it wasn’t stable.
Emily: Right.
Dr. Kellas: Yes. Well, that can be tied to mercury and it can be tied to toxic doses. The great thing – somebody said to me they said, “How do know all this stuff?” I can tell you, I’ll let you know, because I made the same mistakes sooner than everybody else have made.
Emily: Right. Makes sense.
Dr. Kellas: So I learned them not only from studying but from living it. And you can ask Dr. Nelson. Health has been a big issue for me, right?
Dr. Nelson: Yes, it has. But you’ve been working on it and doing very well.
Dr. Kellas: And I learned everything I can and everything I learned I tried to help people with and that’s why we work with Dr. Marvin because he’s got the heart to do this. You know what he’s doing today? Why he’s not here?
Emily: Why?
Dr. Kellas: He’s over at Hal Huggins who recently taught Dr. Nelson and I things years ago. Hal brought his whole staff over to my house in Encinitas and I brought my staff and we all sat there and taught each other and it was a wonderful time. We really enjoyed it. Each person had an hour to explain what they did and how that makes a big difference. And of course, if you talk to the doctors, each one of them thinks their view’s the right view but when you hear all the doctors, you start getting what I call the overview. You see how everything fits together and how there’s no one single solution. And that’s why when you say, “Well, I got to get my teeth fixed.” Well, or get your bite fixed, get your head fixed, your bite fixed and your teeth fixed. See the order in which you do that?
Emily: Right. Your head and your bite and your teeth.
Dr. Kellas: Yes. And that’s why when you asked me, “Can NUCCA take care of it?” I said, “I don’t have a problem with NUCCA keeping you in. I have a problem with NUCCA getting you in because it takes a whiplash which is a whole another thing.” Now, Dr. Nelson, how long did it take for Russ to develop the whiplash method that we’ve been doing? We had Dr. Gold come in.
Dr. Nelson: Well, yes, we had Dr. Gold come in from Michigan and he sat with and taught his aspects of dental and chiropractic together.
Dr. Kellas: Right. And then we had…
Dr. Nelson: Huggins.
Dr. Kellas: Huggins. We had Olinger. And we’ve integrated…
Dr. Nelson: Yes.
Dr. Kellas: …a huge team over the years and Adam, who’s the guy who does our structural work at the clinic has integrated all those things together.
Emily: Yes. That makes sense.
Dr. Kellas: Dr. Fogelman, he’s – and that’s what we do. We try to train it so you integrate everything.
Emily: Okay.
Dr. Kellas: Does that make sense?
Emily: Yes, it all puts together the puzzle. [crosstalk] Dr. Kellas: Alright. Now, here’s my advice for you today, get your head on straight.
Emily: Yes. Get your bite on straight.
Dr. Nelson: Get your head on straight.
Dr. Kellas: Get your head and get your bite on straight. In that order.
Emily: Yes. Okay. Well, I will do that.
Dr. Kellas: I’ll give you a couple of things. I’ll give you Dr. Marvin’s phone number, 888…
Emily: Oh, I do have that number because I’ve been meaning to call him but you know how that goes.
Dr. Kellas: Yes. I can’t even get your head on straight. I got to get that first before you call him.
Emily: Right. Right.
Dr. Kellas: And then we’ll tell you which tooth is hide by the muscles that are tight. How’s that grab you?
Emily: Wow.
Dr. Kellas: Yes. See, we’ll actually read the muscles and tell him which teeth have to be adjusted.
Emily: Is that really expensive to do all this to – I…
Dr. Kellas: No, that’s actually not too bad.
Emily: Okay. Getting your teeth on straight, that will be…
Dr. Kellas: Yes. Because all you’re going to do…
Dr. Nelson: It’s just a fine-tuning.
Dr. Kellas: Yes. It’s just a fine-tuning.
Emily: Oh, okay.
Dr. Kellas: Yes. They’re not going to redo your teeth. This is not orthodontia.
Emily: No. But they – he will move them around or something.
Dr. Kellas: Right.
Emily: Okay.
Dr. Kellas: Alright.
Emily: [crosstalk] That makes sense. Thank you very much.
Dr. Kellas: Alright. Thanks for calling. And anybody who would like to get a hold of Dr. Marvin, his number is 888-825-5351 and as you can tell, we work as a team together, 888-825-5351 and we’ll be back in a moment with Health Talk: A Second Opinion.
