So, what’s all the stuff about my therapy session have to do with my one rotten tooth?
Well, it led me to studying why only this tooth is rotting.
Between my therapy session, seeing such obvious physical responses to emotions, and something I recently reread in Move Your DNA, I felt compelled for the first time that my rotten tooth was not only a food/supplement issue, but because it was only one tooth, it probably came from something other than or along with physical input.
Katy Bowman, in Move Your DNA, says,
“I’ve heard disease – like an osteoarthritic knee, for example – casually explained away with statements like ‘your knee just got old and wore out.’ Why, then (in this case), is the other knee fine? Aren’t they the same age after all? In the same way, people are always surprised to learn that if they do have plaque in their arteries, they don’t have it all over. So, why in one place and not the other?”
I eat the same food with all of my teeth. I brush all of the teeth, oil pull all of the teeth, and pick food from between all of my teeth. There’s no real reason why, if one tooth is rotting, the others have not as well, when you factor in only the physical input upon my teeth.
So, I looked up emotions related to tooth decay, and found something far more interesting. I first found information about healing modalities I’d never learned of before. I’d read multiple times about protocols like Cure Tooth Decay, and using essential oils, but nothing like laser therapy or using the energy from magnets.
I then found what I was looking for, but even more detailed then I expected. I was astonished, though I’m not sure why, that each tooth has its own emotional connections. And for my tooth, the one labeled #4 (I had this side’s wisdom tooth removed long before I knew better), it had 4 possible negative emotions connected with it, but 1 immediately stood out as relatable… being my Type 4 self. Critical. My critiquing nature can, without my being mindful of it, turn to a critical one. During pregnancy, it happens far more often.
Interestingly, the pattern I have found, from all my natural health practitioners, emerges through my teeth again: thyroid/thymus issues.
In her book, Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils, Carolyn Mein says that the essential oil for releasing criticism is lavender (the other side is unconditional love and acceptance, and the way out is “I receive”). It is applied to the “skin” points, which is the tips of the inferior-most ribs, on the posterior. Grateful this is lavender, as I always have some on hand and it is an affordable oil.
I’ll begin adding this to my dental regimen (which is similar to Cure Decay, sans dairy), and see what happens.
Interesting to see rot coming from the inside, out. The positive thing is, I can change it to blessing!
