Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, Covid-19 & Radical Cure: Build Natural Immunity by Do Nothing or Pull Your Teeth?

Dr. Yu

About twelve years ago, I saw a female airline pilot, who appeared physically fit in her early 50’s, suffering from a Mixed Connective Tissue Disease (MCTD) and no longer able to fly. Her fingers were so stiff and swollen that she cannot bend her fingers and is medically disabled to fly as a pilot. MCTD is an autoimmune disease that has signs and symptoms like lupus, scleroderma, arthritis, polymyositis, or Sjogren’s syndrome. In later stages, it may affect the lungs, heart or kidney.

Clinical presentations and lab findings can be confusing and delay in diagnosis and treatment. The pilot’s acupuncture meridian assessment indicates her primary problem was coming from dental related problems. Her dental X-ray showed multiple root canals and dental implants but there were no sign of mercury amalgams, or of abscess or acute dental infections.

My recommendation was that she needs to pull all her teeth and wear full dentures with the understanding that there was no guarantee that her conditions would improve. Most of my patients never come back to see me again when I recommend pulling any tooth out. She was no exception. She never came back to see me. However, I ran into her dentist later, and he told me that she did pull all her teeth and she was symptom free and flying again. I saw her only once and her symptoms of MCTD resolved by pulling her teeth. I had to give her a credit that she was willing to pull all her teeth without any promises from her dentist or her doctor.

Your immune system has a built-in seventh sense to naturally seek and guide you how to detox, what to eat, and to heal itself if you let it. No vaccinations will cure MCTD but pulling your teeth might be a giant step for self-healing and you may call it Radical Cure, Accidental Cure, or AcciDental Blow-Up in Medicine. For Covid-19, let the scientists, clinicians, big pharma, and politicians fight the War on Covid-19, but who benefits and at what price?
