The Root Causes

Many clinicians do not realise that it can be the patient’s teeth that are the root cause of their poor health

Finding The Root Cause

After several years of NHS care, the patient sought help from private practice to find the root cause of failing health. The diagnosis was 2-part.

1. Electro-Oral Galvanism

2. Severe Chronic Dental Ingestion – toxicity caused notably by Elemental/Inorganic Mercury – Palladium – Nickel – and other dental toxins

\\\ Electro-Oral Galvanism

Case History

Shortly, just days after an unconsented NHS surgical procedure under general anaesthesia, new symptoms developed caused by an unknown accident, a suggestive knock to the oral cavity which slightly loosened a dental restoration, yet never visible to the naked eye of trained dentists during routine examinations and dental x-rays.

The knocking of teeth during surgical procedures is quite a common occurrence, one where the Royal College of Anaesthetists allege one in 4,500 cases occur, however other hospitals disclose much higher occurrence figures. The College produces a patient leaflet, far more comprehensive than at the time of the operation and where no clinician suggested this could happen.

The patient realised very soon afterwards surgery that something wasn’t quite right in the mouth and face. The patient informed numerous NHS clinicians of concerns but nobody listened to the patient possibly because they knew it may have been associated with the unconsented surgical procedure, an unlawful medical procedure where doctors can be struck off immediately from practising, which was evident to have occurred, logged in paperwork. A cover-up by clinicians misdiagnosing prevented the patient from being able to take matters further, but worse, their actions failed to help improve the patient’s health. Under NHS care, the patient just got sicker and sicker.

Finally, after a number of years, the diagnosis was evident by substantial testing, where the suspect dental restoration positioned in the Lower Right jaw, a composition of several metals including palladium and gold had been able to mix freely with the electrolyte saliva solution when slightly knocked, with numerous other nickel dental fixings, and four amalgams, (aka elemental mercury fillings), which created a highly charged toxic vapour being ingested steadily 24/7 over seven years.

Toxicity was being considerably sped up by the actions known as Electro-Oral galvanism.

This loosening of the restoration was minuscule, never spotted by the human eye during routine dental appointments yet capable of extraordinary levels of toxicity depositing in the body.


Life started changing rapidly suffering from many symptoms head to toe. Symptoms are listed in full in posts 4 & 5.

Which symptoms were particularly associated with Electro-Oral galvanism is hard to say because of the huge number of symptoms being experienced, which could be mistaken easily for other known symptoms.

Oral-Electro galvanism is associated with causing and can contribute to eye problems, insomnia, tinnitus, lack of concentration and memory, vertigo, mouth pain, and hearing loss, all of which were suffered.

Simple everyday tasks such as brushing one’s teeth would significantly increase the release of the toxins from elemental mercury-filled dental works, as would drinking hot drinks, which elevates the air temperature in the mouth, intensifying mercury release, and of course, helps release further palladium and gold toxins from the crown located on the bottom LR Lower Right jaw that was found to be the root cause of the galvanism.

One worrying specific symptom was the failure of being able to use electro devices, which became very difficult very quickly, having a huge effect on the body and affecting everyday working life.

These devices constantly received electro signals in and out of their appliances, with unknown aerial placements, which particularly led to experiencing pains in the head, neck, and shoulders, affecting parts of the body that were in closest range, electro-frequency contact, when using them for more than 10 minutes, or so.

If you talk to clinicians you’ll find they will dismiss these events as ‘nonsense’ and can associate them incorrectly with EHS where people believe they are being affected by modern-day electro services.

It is this heightened level of voltage that makes life so problematic for a human including using mobile phones, and telephone answering machines, even holding and using the iron for a minute, or using hedge trimmers.

Travelling through busy railway stations was almost impossible, because of the huge power sources used by the railways. The London tube system and airports are similar. Public transport was difficult, many people packed into a small space, using active electro gadgets.

The problem is that there is no medical protocol put in place and hence no specially designed medical gadget currently to measure dental elevated human voltage in the mouth which is the problem that can be caused by the electrolyte solution mixing freely with a range of noble metals, such as gold, palladium, and mercury. The best crude method is to use industry voltage testing appliances.

Using Metal Detectors

After 2 years, it was noted that metal detectors used by airport security, became activated for absolutely no reason other than detecting problems around the right side of the face during security checks on the body. It is now known to have been caused by the growing electro-magnetic currents emerging from the patient’s oral cavity.

Further handheld metal detector checks identified the lower right, LR, dental quadrant position on the face, that activated the maximum settings on the machine.

Illustration of Quadrant Dental Charting of the Mouth

Over time, and testing out various small, handheld, sophisticated metal detectors, one detector actually pinpointed the external position of detection of huge electroactivity, within millimetres of what was later found to be the root cause, being a dental crown restoration situated in the Lower Right quadrant of the mouth.

Many statements were made to health clinicians that there was a suspicious and unsafe dental problem to the right bottom side of the mouth, jaw and chin. Clinicians wrote in the patient medical notes that the cause was a suspected implant, (endosseous implant or fixture) in the mouth, caused during an unconsented surgical medical procedure under anaesthesia.

They later dismissed complaints of symptoms as “nonsense”, even stating “it’s all in your head” which, of course, was highly offensive, and now known to be complete nonsense, a cavalier statement, that is used so frequently by NHS clinicians when they are unable to diagnose symptoms reported by thousands of patients up and down the UK.

NHS clinicians failed to inform the patient they are not trained in oral and dentistry matters, do not recognise the symptoms, failed to offer referrals to those clinicians better trained, and fail to offer any care plan. It’s at this point that second opinions in private medical practice were sought.

Other clinicians when provided with the visual evidence of metal detectors alleged that “metal detectors don’t work”. This comment was rather peculiar as that NHS Hospital, where they used Adams handheld medical-friendly metal detectors in their A&E department, as do many UK A&E departments, up and down the country, particularly helping to track ingested foreign bodies positioning in the patient. It aids doctors to locate the foreign body and then request x-rays or other scans of that part of the body for further investigation.

Adams was one of the makes of detectors testing with positive results on the LR jaw and face.

What Is Electro-Oral Galvanism?

Galvanism is the term used to define the production of direct current electricity from a chemical reaction, for example, between dissimilar metals, and is defined in most dictionaries.

Electro-Oral galvanism defined in the Dorlands Medical Dictionary for the last 35 years or more; a dictionary that is available in most UK libraries, the disease was discovered more than 180 years ago.

production of galvanic current in the oral cavity due to the presence of 2, or more dissimilar metals in dental restorations that are bathed in saliva, or a single restoration and two electrolytes, saliva and pulp tissue fluid, thus producing an electrolyte cell and an electric current.

When such restorations touch each other, the current may be high enough to irritate the dental pulp and cause sharp pain. The anodic restoration or areas of restoration are subject to electrolyte corrosion.’

Dorland’s Medical Dictionary has also defined the term dental galvanism as a

physicochemical phenomenon in which 2 or more dissimilar metals that have been used to restore or replace missing teeth produce the flow of an electric current.’

Definitions of Electro-Oral galvanism are available in the Free Dictionary – Medical Dictionary by Farlex Partner Medical Dictionary, Miller-Keane Encyclopedia and Dictionary of Medicine, Nursing and Allied Health, Farlex Medical Dictionary for the Health Professions and Nursing, Medical Eponyms by Farlex.

Electro-Oral galvanism can also be referred to as electro galvanism or oral galvanism, sometimes as oral electricity and Oral-Electro galvanism.

‘Galvanometer’ is defined as an instrument for measuring current by electromagnetic action.

How Does Oral-Electro Galvanism Occur?

Commonly, dental galvanism can occur between, for example, a gold crown and an amalgam (aka mercury) filling and dramatically increases when gold, nickel, palladium, aluminium, and other metal fillings, inlays, Onlays, crowns, or bridges are placed near an amalgam filling.

The 1990s saw a huge uptick in a wide variety of mixed metals being used in dentistry.

What Is Electro-Oral Galvanism?

Electro-Oral galvanism is a disease that is known for more than 180 years, yet clinicians are not trained currently to identify and diagnose working in the NHS, the National Health Service, and can be referred to as Oral-Electro galvanism and Oral galvanism.

A process, in some cases, that can substantially speed up dental toxicity in the oral cavity.

The patient is today somewhat left to identify galvanism through their own research but where more and more dental establishments are writing openly and freely about galvanism.

\\\ Accidents And Loosened Dental Restorations

The Restoration Removal And Voltage Readings

If an accident occurs to a patient, a sports accident, for example, by a knock to the face, it can slightly loosen the restoration or other dental works without the patient knowing. It allows the saliva with highly charged electrolytes to wash under, and around, the many metals that make up the composition of the implant.

These pictures featured above are taken of the crown restoration after removal, which aided Oral-Electro galvanism in the oral cavity. Large traces of gold content are clearly visible on the underside centre.

When the restoration was removed from the mouth, after seven years of causing many horrific and painful symptoms, the restoration pieces were measured for voltage and still recorded voltage registering as high as 0.39v.

This was an extraordinary voltage recording because the highest safe voltage that a human can operate is according to dental reports 0.1v. When taken out of the mouth the dental restoration wrapped in drying saliva was recorded nearly 4 times the voltage levels that were safe for a human.

The pieces were stored carefully and continually monitored in the same places over the next few weeks and the voltage was recorded.

The voltage still recorded 0.18v after the eighth week that the suspect restoration had been removed from the oral cavity. This was recording voltage measurements still above the accepted public range. It was astonishing.

This formed part of the extraordinary proof of the voltage and Oral-Electro galvanism problems of the suffering the patient had experienced for years in the oral cavity.

One would think that when a dentist removes the problem from the mouth that’s the end of your troubles but it is a long process for the mouth to be registering a healthy acceptable voltage measurement.

It was clear that saliva carried the high voltage for weeks out of the mouth, and therefore, would be doing the same in the mouth, despite the mouth being continually washed daily with saliva. It would take months for the high voltage to reduce to acceptable human levels.

Voltage Detection

The oral cavity galvanic current measured in the body a constant 0.5v (500 millivolts) rising to above 1v (1000 millivolts), more than 10 times the recognised human accepted level24/7, 365 days a year.


Currently, there is no specific dental designed voltage gadget to accurately record the mouth but there are many multimeters now available for a variety of trades such as detectors now available for DIY that can detect voltage in electrical wiring and locate metal pipes. They range in price and sophistication.

Several were tested in the oral cavity and a mid-priced, quality, reliable multimeter was used frequently to monitor the patient’s mouth noting the time, location and voltage so a historical log could be safely relied upon. Care was taken to ensure that the readings were being taken in the same oral locations and face.

Holistic and toxicology dentists use multimeters when they suspect raised voltage in patients’ mouths checking the levels.

An article by an Australian dental clinic explains their use of multimeters to test oral cavity dental voltage.

The Dental Restoration

How many dentists tell you exactly how many mixed metals they’ve just popped into you’re mouth during a visit?


As a dental patient, I was never made aware at the time of the inclusion of Cookson EC 730 implant into the mouth, that this porcelain fused to metal implant was constructed with gold and palladium along with a number of other metals. This was never discussed by the dentist.

The manufacturer’s information suggests that the reduced gold content of EC 730 is countered by the addition of palladium to produce an alloy, which is tarnish-resistant and hard enough to mill. There are more metals that help to construct this appliance using other prime metals, gold and palladium.

When this appliance was being inserted into the mouth during the 1990s, Germany was trying to ban the use of palladium in dental appliances due to the growing suspicions of dental toxicity, and its health minister dis-encouraging the use. Today, the UK still use palladium in the oral cavity.

Gold has a high positive charge, which greatly augments the rate of corrosion of negatively charged mercury used in amalgam fillings, if you have amalgam fillings, this especially potentiates the release of this toxic metal into the body.

Numerous private clinic blood tests for toxicity were undertaken including the specialised dental Melisa® blood tests providing evidence that the dangerous elemental mercury and palladium far outranked ingested gold vapour in the levels of chronic ingested dental toxicity being experienced in the patient’s bloodstream.


1 to 2 litres of saliva is secreted into the mouth daily rinsing the teeth before being swallowed.


1 to 2 litres of saliva is secreted into the mouth daily rinsing the teeth before being swallowed.

Saliva contains sodium and chlorides as well as potassium and bicarbonate ions which act as electrolytes. When saliva washes over amalgam fillings, (aka mercury), also known as ‘silver’ or ‘metallic’ fillings due to their colour, an electrolyte action corrodes the amalgam increasing the risk of mercury vapour release.

Saliva acts as an electrolyte when it mixes with the amalgam fillings in the mouth, creating a measurable electric current.

A galvanic current of 0.1v overpowers the human body and makes a human inoperable, according to dentists and dental books.

How The Galvanism Accident Occurred

NHS clinicians in Sussex, UK, performed an unconsented daycare surgical procedure by general anaesthetic*, where the GA tract put into the mouth was suggestive of knocking the dental restoration, an unknown and invisible accident at the time, to either the anaesthetist, surgical team and patient.

*An unconsented surgical operation, such as this, forms a serious Clinical Negligence complaint and raises patient safety and care questions, often called ‘A Never Event.’

Both the surgeon and anaesthetist failed to collect the patient’s consent for the procedure at the hospital, despite patient requests. Informed consent would have assessed such risks of the crowns and other dental works and perhaps more care by the clinicians may have been taken of the patient, particularly when under general anaesthesia.

First Signs Of Oral-Electro Galvanism 

With this slightly loosened undetectable ceramic crown inlay, saliva managed to wash over the different metals used in the crown’s construction, and further, washing over 4 amalgams (mercury fillings) that had been placed in the oral cavity sometime before.

It took just days when the first symptoms such as headaches, a strange taste in the mouth, and tinnitus, appeared after the surgical procedure, along with forgetfulness.

These new symptoms developed very quickly, in a matter of just days, and an appointment was undertaken seeing the GP.

The GP didn’t recognise that these were dental symptoms but simply referred the patient back to the outpatient department.

Outpatient Mistakes

Clinicians at the NHS outpatient appointments never asked if their patients had suffered dental problems or side effects from dental work. They didn’t consider that a general anaesthetic may have knocked the teeth, they only focused on surgical implications of the oral cavity.

It was about 6 months later when it was noticeable that using computers and laptops had become very ‘difficult’ (Electro-Oral galvanism symptoms suffered) and more symptoms appeared, such as nausea and headaches when using the devices along with poor grammar, loss of singing vocal cords, tightening of the throat, worsening memory recall, neuralgia, all became noticeable. These symptoms are noted and contributed as typical of elemental/inorganic mercury toxicity.

Oral-Electro galvanism was aiding the toxic dental ingestion cocktail, both producing identifiable symptoms, that helped pleather of neurological symptoms.

NHS clinicians continually failed to diagnose the growing list of symptoms correctly. The local NHS Oral and Maxillofacial out-patients department being run by junior doctors considered diagnosis to be ‘tooth grinding’ looking at just one of the symptoms the patient reported that the doctor recognised and ignored the majority of symptoms presented which they clearly never had been trained by their absent senior consultant to look further.

Medical records obtained later through Data Protection Requests demonstrated that NHS clinicians tried to make some of the symptoms correlate with diseases they had been trained in, at the exclusion of the majority of others that the patient symptoms presented, particularly such as the voltage symptoms. By doing this, they were severely misdiagnosing the patient for many years, whilst the disease worsened poisoning the body, even diagnosing inappropriate drugs.

At no time, did any NHS clinician state that they were not trained to diagnose the symptoms presented, nor did they refer to senior clinicians or departments, or suggest any blood and urine testing, despite requests made.

Clinicians are taught in medical school about levels of voltage present in humans, yet one clinician claimed that the patient was ‘bonkers’ to even consider that humans have the presence of minor currents.

The exclusion of voltage symptoms as a cause misled other clinicians. 

The voltage symptoms were key to diagnosis, but completely ignored by the untrained NHS


After the diagnosis a further consultation with a senior NHS toxicity clinician confirmed they had no training in oral-electro galvanism or chronic dental ingestion and applied a case of acute organic methyl mercury toxicity (generally caused by fish-eating) which the doctor was trained in, to a case of severe chronic dental toxicity without realising there’s the obvious huge difference in the root cause diagnosis, and more importantly the chelation methods, the process to remove the toxins from the body.

One senior NHS toxicity medical professional stated that eating a prawn sandwich had caused the previous 7 years of chronic toxicity! He later admitted he was not trained in chronic dental ingestion toxicity. 

Second opinions were sought with matters taken out of the hands of The National Health Service, NHS.

\\\ Private Healthcare

Private Consultations And Clinics

Two senior long-standing experienced Oral and Maxillofacial clinicians were consulted in private practice who were at a loss to explain the voltage but provided helpful resources.

The third senior Oral and Maxillofacial consultant, also a fully trained dentist and who worked in the NHS, admitted within four minutes of discussing the case that he felt this was a dental case and had nothing to do with Oral and Maxillofacial. He stated that he was not trained in this disease presented, therefore could not discuss further the case, and went on to explain he had not experienced a patient with the super high voltage symptoms but provided useful contacts for referrals.

He did confirm that junior colleagues were completely wrong to suggest humans didn’t suffer from voltage and that humans do have minuscule amounts of voltage in the head and neck regions.

I had waited for 7 years for a clinician to be honest with me, that no one should have been attempting to diagnose me, and if they did, explain that it was not necessarily their field of medical knowledge.

Private medical dental testing and research were now heavily suggesting the diagnosis of Oral-Electro galvanism, the reason for the extraordinary electro-currents in the mouth and penetrating throughout the body.

This confirmed the difficulties of voltage in the oral cavity, which in turn led to organising toxicity blood tests taken at a CQC approved clinic in London, where the NHS had failed to offer any kind of toxicity blood tests.

A referral was made to the NHS dentistry school at Guys Hospital London.

A visit was made to Guy’s NHS London dental clinicians who were utterly professional with excellent facilities at hand. The dental staff listened to the patient intently, and asked very specific, direct questions when the patient described the effects of Oral-Electro galvanism, which caused the patient even more consternation, but where The British Dental Association and legal protocol stopped them from diagnosing the oral condition.

This consultation confirmed suspicions even more so of suffering from Oral-Electro galvanism.

Guy’s dental clinicians were aware that private clinical results for toxicity metal blood testing were waited upon. They suggested that nothing should be done with the teeth whilst waiting.

Various private clinic scans and tests had been undertaken including the Environmental 16 Metal Blood Tests, Tri-blood, hair and urine mercury tests and Melisa® Dental Ingestion Tests. Please see Post 9 – Blood Tests, Scans and Other Tests for more detailed information.

Environmental 16 Metals Blood tests provided common metals testing which was suggestive of being above the public range, high levels of several metals poisoning the patient, and indicative of metals that may be the cause, commonly associated with use in dentistry.

Melisa® dental ingestion blood tests provided dental blood testing information related to the chronic dental ingestion from the metals that had been used in the patient’s specific procedure dentistry.

Melisa® Tests suggested extreme high levels of chronic dental ingestion, inorganic mercury, palladium and nickel.

The patient had been charting several years the head and neck using a private clinic Medical Thermal Diagnostic Imaging scanning service which had been providing a regular, safe, non-evasive charting of blood patterns of the worsening diseases in the head and neck over the 2 year pre-diagnosis period, and continued during diagnosis and post-diagnosis.

Many years of poisoning could have been avoided, had the NHS clinicians listened to the patient, where they were provided with the exact location and suspicions about the root cause.

\\\ Detoxification


Oral-Electro galvanism had to be carefully researched and an appropriate chelation detoxification programme planned and implemented.

Detoxification is a process or period of time in which one abstains from or rids the body of toxic or unhealthy substances; detoxification


High-powered devices in today’s modern world are virtually impossible to eliminate. Both at work or home, the world depends on ever-increasing reliance on electro currents, electro-magnetic and Wi-Fi.

As field strengths increase The World Health Organisation and other global organisations are frequently reviewing the effects of electro fields and public health.

  • Managing Oral-Electro galvanism means reducing the electro currents, electro-magnetic currents, and Wi-Fi directly in front of you, located by you, and around you, to a minimum level, before, during, and most importantly, after the removal of the toxic mixed metals, from a patient’s mouth.
  • The galvanic currents in a mixed mouth of metals far out-power normal physiological currents.
  • Immediate treatment is by removing metals from the mouth

Dentists currently are not permitted to recommend patients to have the metal removed from the oral cavity being an elective patient procedure

This website explains how the two diseases were diagnosed, the metals removed from the mouth and the chelation programme put in place in many posts which are numbered.

Symptoms were reversed that had been similar to Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and MS.


Medical papers as far back as 1987 discuss US galvanism patient results; Read Signs and Symptoms of Mandibular Dysfunction in Patients With Suspected Oral Galvanism. Article

Keeping a detailed diary has been an essential tool to monitor the repeated voltage testing of the oral cavity, (testing and recording voltage in the mouth was monitored for several years, before – during- after the removal of mixed metal in the mouth), the progress of recovery from Oral-Electro galvanism and health improvements when chelating, the removal of the toxicity.

Physical signs of improvement of reduced Oral-Electro galvanism were the improved use of computers and electro devices close to the body, the ability to travel on public transport without experiencing difficulties, visiting large screen projection houses, and airports, less nausea, headaches, and improved posture and general mobility.

Sadly, recovery doesn’t happen overnight. It takes considerable determination to stick to the large lifestyle changes needed to enhance chelation, still being practiced 6 years after diagnosis and is likely to have to continue for a considerable time if indeed one is fully recovered from inorganic mercury that persistently rests in the bones.

Oral-Electro galvanism is not to be mixed up with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome, EHS. Oral-Electro galvanism is a disease where the voltage source can be measured inside the oral cavity, and in extreme cases, in other parts of the body, the source is addressed and removed. EHS is a condition where patients suffer symptoms that they believe electro currents cause when close to them. This is a common mistake that untrained clinicians diagnosing make.
