Nourishing Wisdom
Holistic dental care
with Sally Fallon, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation

Dear Sally,
I know that Weston Price had strong opinions about root canals. Can you tell me what his recommendations were for dental care?

Sally’s response:
In addition to his work on nutrition, Dr. Price conducted extensive research into the destructive effects of root canals, detailed in his two-volume work Dental Infections, Oral & Systemic and Dental Infections & the Degenerative Diseases. His conclusions, ignored by the orthodox dental establishment for over 50 years, are gaining renewed acceptance as holistic practitioners are discovering that the first step to recovery from degenerative disease often involves removal of all root canals in the patient’s mouth. The principles of holistic dentistry, based on the research of Weston Price, are as follows:

• Eat nutrient-dense whole foods, properly grown and prepared.

• Avoid root canals. If you have root canals and suspect that they are causing trouble, have them removed by a knowledgeable dentist.

• Avoid mercury (amalgam) fillings. If you have amalgam fillings, have them removed by a holistic dentist who specializes in mercury filling replacement.

• Orthodontics should include measures to widen the palate.

• When it is necessary to extract teeth, do so in such a way as to avoid leaving the jaw bone with cavitations, which can be focal points of infection.

Live well, Sally

    I am needing 30 year old bridge and two root canal teeth
    removed. I have issues with MCS/EMS I am massage therapist and reiki, adhere healing through whole foods, supplements, homeopathy, herbs. yoga. I have lived on very thin soc. security disability check. Not a big money maker. I found hope information in Julie’s article sharing her experience. I am connecting with people around me with horror stories about procedures. My body not endure. Discouragement that there is one very expensive IAOMT biomedical dentist in two state area. I am just a “bit” concerned??? Any suggestion???

    Hi Jude,
    The first thing I would suggest is to call the office of this expensive biomedical dentist and ask for all the approximate costs involved — initial consult, cost to remove bridge and root canals, cost to replace with biocompatible materials, etc. Ask if they have sliding scale fees for those on Medicare/disability or if they would be willing to work with you in any way (e.g. payment plan, etc.). I would also see if they can refer you to other dentists in the area that charge less but are aware of the correct procedures. Other ideas are to do a fundraiser on GoFundMe or a site like ModestNeeds ( to cover the costs. Then of course, there is always Mexico. A lot of people go to Mexico for dental work because it’s so expensive in the States. This might not be an option for someone with MCS though. I hope this is a good start. You can also ask on our forum ( to see what others have done. Sending you love and hugs, I know it’s stressful and can feel overwhelming. I have faith you will figure out how to get it done. xx Julie
