Tooth-Body-Soul Connection: Are Your Teeth Telling You Something?

185983980Stress has long been known to cause a number of physical and emotional issues. But, did you know that you can have bio-energetic distresses in your mouth as well? On the surface, everything may look fine, but underneath, where energy meridians are concerned, things may not.

To understand this better, imagine a bathtub filled with water and a stopper used to stop the water from flowing down the drain. Now, imagine the stopper as a root canal, implant, or a manmade metal apparatus inserted into the gum tissue. This physical interruption is an energetic disturbance waiting to happen, or is already happening; just that, you aren’t aware of it.

When looking at a teeth meridian chart, you see how each tooth sits on a particular acupuncture meridian and affects various spinal segments, emotions, and certain organs of the body. While those who are healthy and have a strong immune system aren’t strongly affected as much by a problematic tooth or a procedure (maybe not now, but might in the future), those with lowered immunity can be greatly impacted by this energetic disturbance. And this is strongly visible not only in one’s physical health, but also in other aspects of one’s life.

Here’s what happened with me: One night while thinking about tooth #19, I thought about how a root canal procedure I had over ten years ago had left me really sick; that was just one tip of many icebergs. In thinking about how much my life had literally and drastically changed overnight, I reasoned that maybe the root canalled tooth would affect other aspects of my life, too.

Using a one-hand self-testing technique as taught in Truth Techniques Volume 1: Complete Guide to Self-Testing, I received an affirmative answer. I connected the dots, and my life had made much more sense from that point on as I worked on issues that stemmed from that new insight. I did the same thing with other teeth, and thus, the following chart was born.


Life’s Themes (Soul Level) Meridian(s) Teeth Affected Description of Challenges

By all means, the above chart is a working theory and is not absolute, but it does provide you with an idea of just how interconnected we are in relation to our teeth, body, and soul. And, yes, our teeth are more than just beautiful pearly whites used for chewing!

What can you do with the information from this chart?

Let’s say that you have an issue in the love relationship department. Look at the chart, find the theme you feel unsuccessful in and trace back to see if a particular tooth or teeth pose a challenge for you under the area of Love Relationship. If it is, then take the appropriate action necessary to rectify the issue and see improvements in your life. You’ll also notice that the same tooth might also affect other life’s themes as well. That is because when one area is challenged, others get affected, too. However, this tooth, body, and soul relationship is just one aspect and it’s not a be-all and end-all. Moreover, if you already know what tooth or teeth are troubling you, then find the corresponding tooth number and look to the left under Life’s Themes (Soul Level) to see if a certain area is challenging you today, and then proceed with appropriate action.

How do you know if there is any bio-energetic distress in your mouth and is affecting one of your life’s themes?

For me, Quantum Techniques (QT) is one of my preferred healing modalities I use for this purpose and more. As previously mentioned, a problematic tooth causing a disturbance is just one cause as there may be other underlying causes on top of a tooth issue such as vows, contracts, outdated beliefs, negative emotional states, open doors, miasms, spiritual attachments, and generational fields that can keep one from moving forward.

If you’re ready to start receiving more into your life, but you don’t know if a particular tooth is giving you trouble, then a bio-energetic healing session with a QT practitioner can help determine if there is any energetic disturbance creating stress and disruption in your life.

When the meridians are cleared and not blocked, you not only feel better, but the area in your life you’re concerned about begins to flow naturally; considering if there were ever a blockage or disturbance to begin with.

The bottom line is this: bio-energetic distresses in the mouth do put stress on the body. Left undetected this can spell serious trouble for some, but not if they’re nipped it in the bud before the disturbances spiral out of control. Therefore, having a slight awareness of your tooth-body-soul connection can help propel you towards the direction of your desired goal and bring about more peace and balance into your life.

Every tooth counts!

  1. So I’m curious do I have an infected tooth pulled or do I fix the problem associated with it?

    • Hi Jen. Thanks for the question, however we cannot answer it within this type of venue.
