I spoke to a naturopath about detoxing root canals and he wrote:
"Sensitive gums and inflammation in root canals can settle down under 1 hour when sipping from a bottle of water with 10 to 15 grams of sodium ascorbate in it.
The sodium ascorbate (vitamin C) is not a fix, it is a bandage that compensates for root canal inflammation and most importantly, looks after our heart and constantly removes mercury from our body.
1. In the morning I will mix a level teaspoon (3 grams) of sodium ascorbate with the same amount of MSM.
I drink this immediately.
2. Then I place 1 teaspoon of sodium ascorbate into a drink bottle and sip on this over the day.
This gives me about 9 to 10 grams of sodium ascorbate each day, and the MSM ramps up the absorption and utilization of the C by a huge amount. I would hope to have 5 to 6 grams in my blood each day. This will make anyone a superman or superwoman.
The chelation effect is very good so I need to make sure I take a good quality multi mineral to make up for the chelation effects of the C.
Anyone with root canal work would find this ample compensation for inflammation delivered to the body.
To increase the effects of vitamin C, we can reduce our sugars as glucose battles with vitamin C for access to our cells."
