And as you said, after the root canals you've been good.

    I got an ear infection from shower water in Chiang Mai. I did not swim there, and I guess I did not dry inside my ears properly with cotton buds after showering. Did so after that though.
    Yeah, I'm aware of the correlation between poor oral health and heart/circulatory problems. I'm pretty certain it all began in my ears; I did the thing you're not supposed to do and dried my ears out with a cotton bud. Ear ache next day which turned into an infection (bitter pussy stuff draining down through the eustachion tube into my mouth). Antibiotics cleared it up slowly, but it would come back again and again, and coicidentally I'd get toothache. Perhaps referred pain I realise now, but two things have happend; I got the root canals and I stopped using cotton buds in my ears, so who knows?

    I can't remember last time I was sick. It's been years. Now I have had a couple of colon cleansing blow out events from who knows what but an actual cold with fever aches pains down and out its probably been 20+years if not longer. I am never sick.

    I tend to believe that people have gone waaaay to far with all this antibacterial soap and wipers and tissue and cleaners that it has weakened peoples immune systems. Couple that with poor eating, lack of exercise, smoking, poor dental hygiene or took lots of medicines that have changed the individuals ability to combat simple viruses and bacteria.

    Eggs can be a bit iffy sometimes...By Troy

    They're the killers for me. Couldn't work out why I was getting the runs. Lady Cow told me to only eat eggs that were hard boiled. Problem solved. Salmonella is the usual culprit with eggs, especially as they are rarely refrigerated in Thailand. Useful info on eggs.....

    Further to my previous post, gum disease can also trigger rheumatoid arthritis :

    Millions of people are unaware of the true dangers linked to gum disease – mainly because their condition has been undiagnosed or poorly treated by conventional dentistry. If you suffer with chronic join pain due to rheumatoid arthritis, this special report will prove to be particularly important to you. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic degenerative autoimmune disease, in which the tissues that cushion the joints are attacked by the body’s own immune system. The eventual result is the destruction of cartilage, ligaments and bone around the joints – a debilitating and painful condition. And, although the cause of RA is supposedly unknown, recent research points to a possible answer – the causal link between gum disease and RA.
    Gum disease is a threat to health, in and of itself

    Gum disease appears in two forms: gingivitis – an earlier, milder manifestation – and periodontitis.
    Gingivitis is caused by a buildup of plaque – sticky deposits of bacteria that form on teeth and gums. Classic signs and symptoms of gingivitis include sore, swollen, reddened gums – often with bleeding from the gums after brushing. Bad breath can also be a tipoff to the presence of gingivitis.
    Untreated gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, a more serious form of gum disease that can cause bone loss – as well as loss of teeth. Signs of periodontitis include gums pulling away from the teeth, teeth appearing longer (due to receding gums), sensitivity to hot and cold, bad breath, loose or tilting teeth and gum abscesses.
    In addition to damaging bone and teeth, the bacteria and inflammation associated with periodontitis can contribute to heart disease, diabetes, respiratory conditions and even cancer. By now, it should be abundantly clear, don’t ignore the signs of gum disease – especially if you have arthritis.
    In fact, researchers have found that people with RA are at much greater risk of developing gum disease. And, after being diagnosed with RA, many people report that their gum disease worsens – with more bleeding gums, receding gums and tooth loss.
    Study clearly shows the relationship between RA and gum disease

    In a 2012 British study, researchers found that 65 percent of RA patients had gum disease – as compared to 28 percent of people without RA. Patients with RA tended to have gum disease that was more severe – with the severity of the gum disease mirroring the severity of the RA. In addition, RA patients with gum disease who had suffered loss of jaw bone also had RA-associated bone erosions in other joints.
    Professor Alan Silman, medical director of Arthritis Research UK, concluded, “People with RA have an increased risk of periodontal disease.” He also warned that people with RA need to be vigilant for early signs of gum disease in order to prevent infection.
    Professor Silman noted that the association could be partly due to genetics – with some people simply more likely to develop both conditions.
    But, other factors may be at work as well.
    For example, having RA can cause problems with the jaws that make cleaning the teeth more difficult. As a result, more plaque is left in the mouth, thereby increasing the likelihood of developing gum disease. And, prolonged gum inflammation can reduce the therapeutic effects of RA medicine, thereby worsening the condition.’
    But can gum disease actually trigger RA?

    Researchers say: maybe so.
    In a review published in 2013 in Current Opinion in Rheumatology, researchers found P. gingivalis, the primary pathogen that causes gum disease, in both the periodontal tissues and the synovial fluid of RA patients.
    This is very significant, because P. gingivalis has the ability to modify certain proteins – to which the body launches an autoimmune response, thereby causing joint damage in individuals already susceptible to RA. The team found that P. gingivalis can lead to earlier development, faster progression and greater severity of RA – including more serious damage to bone and cartilage.
    Just as gum disease seems to worsen after the diagnosis of RA, many anecdotal accounts show that RA can flare after the diagnosis of gum disease.
    Fortunately, treatment of gum disease can improve both conditions – if only because it cuts the inflammatory burden on the body.
    Prevention of gum disease is especially vital for RA patients

    If you have been diagnosed with RA, it’s imperative that you see your dentist often for prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of gum disease. Having regular professional cleanings – at your dentist’s recommendation – can help remove hardened plaque that triggers gum disease.
    Mild cases of gingivitis can often be treated by simply stepping up oral hygiene – brushing teeth at least twice daily, and flossing regularly.
    Of course – if you still smoke, try to quit. You’ll be doing your gums – and your overall health – a big favor.
    Natural nutrients can treat gum disease

    A combination of vitamin C and quercetin, a flavonoid found in fruits and vegetables, can be used to reduce inflammation and support gum health. These disease-fighting nutrients appear to bolster each other’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant powers.
    Editor’s note: My wife had a chronic issue with bleeding gums – even after brushing, flossing and eating the best foods possible. The solution was found by swishing (and swallowing) 1 tablespoon of Liposomal Vitamin C + Quercetin … every day. This really helps to support gum health.
    In addition, CoQ10, an antioxidant enzyme vital for the health of tissues, can alleviate bleeding gums and combat periodontal bone loss. CoQ10 is abundant in broccoli, spinach and sardines, and is also available as a convenient supplement. Natural health experts recommend a dosage of 60 to 600 mg a day; your integrative healthcare provider can advise a regimen that is right for you.
    You can also fight gum disease by rubbing the gums with antibacterial herbs and nutrients such as sage, lemon juice, peppermint or chamomile – to name just a few.
    Finally, brushing the teeth with baking soda and unrefined sea salt can provide some added protection against gum disease.
    Although the jury is still out concerning the exact cause of rheumatoid arthritis, one thing seems clear – protecting the health of your teeth and gums could be an important technique for preventing the onset of this disease.

    Yet, you give in to established convention quite easily.....even if you don't recognize as such.

    I've been quite lucky for the past few recent years... the changes include... avoiding public transport ...eating lots of seeds (i.e.: natural multivitamins)... and gradually reducing alcohol intake to next to negligible... i've weaned myself off various foods gradually over the years, starting with sugar in tea, biscuits, cake, crisps, pizza, cheese, ...not a complete embargo, just don't bother so much, and have found more appealing alternatives. My weakness is toast, and bread in general... at least I've progressed from crisps sandwiches and cheese and jam sarnies to generally more yoghurt and salady affairs. There's a lot to be said for raw veg and nuts and seeds once you tune into the flavours there... and you can always chuck some bacon, steak, or if you're feeling a bit posher, salmon on it if it's boring.

    I used to think glugging down loads of fresh juice was the answer, generally, I think the way to avoid being ill is to build up your system with seeds and raw veg; and not kick the crap out of it beer and stress... that and avoiding exposure, which I find is more prevalent in public transport than just around children. There was a documentary showing how the snoticles spray across a train carriage, and land on the eye causing the infection (not inhalation)... so wear shades

    While alcohol esp red wine in moderation is claimed to be ok, I know from my years on the lash that after a few Changs I'd eat anything from Street stalls. Air quality in my village is fine except a few weeks of the burning season when I quit cycling.I notice after only a couple of days with family in bangkok my throat tickles from the pollution.


    Good luck, no harm having a check up, regular problem may indicate other issues as we age.

    Really, David ?

    As a sapiosexual, I really want to share a bottle of wine with this woman (the scientist)
    Last October I was in Australia with my daughter and grandson. His school had taught the kids to sneeze or cough into their elbow. In my day it was sneeze or cough into your hand, but this modern rationale is that it keeps your hands relatively clean. I like that idea.
