Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

Amalgam replacement or tooth extraction?

    I need to have an amalgam-filled tooth treated for a cavity underneath the filling.

    The dentist is willing to remove the filling using the rubber dam method which minimizes my exposure to mercury, and then replace it with a ceramic filling.
    Would it be better for me just to have the tooth extracted? I'm assuming that this will also result in some mercury being released.

    Any advice please?

    Hard to say. If you get to be missing teeth and the ones on the opposite jaw have nothing to hit against, this can also cause problems. It's possible to get bridges or implants, but this is more stuff to put in the mouth, and expensive.

    (Columbia has a new deal where they can put a limited amount of material in your mouth to recruit your own stem cells to grow a new tooth, though--last I heard they were teaching this to new dentists and it should eventually catch on and replace older methods, as it sounded cheaper and longer lasting... apparently they are doing this at University of Michigan, too... I saw a headline title that researchers were growing new teeth in UK, but it was video so I didn't look at it)

    It's always good to have your own teeth. I would find an IAOMT dentist to have the filling removed or at least one that is willing and has the machines to follow the protocol. Then get the ceramic. I had my last 2 removed about 2 years ago by Dr Dressler in Atlanta and now have ceramic. My insurance paid most of it.

    Replace it with ceramic, unless it's so big and deep that they are suggesting root canal. Don't get a traditional root canal.

    Thanks for the replies. I really like the idea of growing my own tooth! I'm going to ask the dentist about that but I'm probably unlikely to get it on the UK's national health service. Ceramic seems to be a good option.

    Thanks. I've heard that root canals are bad things to have. I didn't realise that there are good versions of them. What would a good root canal involve?

    I can't explain it myself, but here is one link off google, which should help you find more information if you want more after reading. http://www.mitchmarderdds.com/services/root-canal-seattle-therapy/

    I don't know if they are good, but I feel they are much less bad. I would only do this if I needed one.

    Thanks! I will look into this some more and see if whether it is available in the UK.
