The energy of our life force flows through all regions of the body, permitting each to function as a hologram of the body as a whole. This forms the scientific basis for many healing disciplines such as acupuncture, kinesiology, auricular therapy, iridology, reflexology, etc.
In the same way regions of the mouth and individual teeth are found to correspond to particular meridians and organ systems as illustrated in the diagram at right, (click to enlarge)
The philosophy of healing in Chinese Medicine is to balance the flow of energy in the body and to develop higher levels of energy throughout the system.
profound potential to reflect and influence the health of the whole person. Disruptions to the flow of energy through the mouth may affect remote regions of the body, and conversely, disruptions elsewhere may manifest in the mouth.

I had an interesting experience with a patient who happened to be a chiropractor. He had developed a problem with his left ankle that was not responding to physical therapies.
He was aware of the potential problems with root canal treated teeth and asked me to check one of his upper incisors which had root canal therapy many years before. This tooth was associated with the kidney meridian, as were two of the muscles that were weak in his ankle.
When tested via muscle testing (Applied Kinesiology) the tooth caused a strong muscle to go weak. After we re-cleaned the root canal, the tooth tested strong and when we checked the muscles in the ankle they tested strong as well. His ankle problem subsequently disappeared.
