I have just been told by a Professor that my Scoliosis is almost certainly due to the large amount of dental amalgam fillings I had as a child!
I was recently contacted by a woman who worked as a dental nurse and regularly handled the amalgam paste used to fill teeth. She went on to have serious health problems and had a daughter who developed Scoliosis in her teens. This woman has been proven to have heavy metal allergy to mercury. Dental amalgam is 50% mercury and it is also in some medications and vaccines, including the MMR and 'Flu jabs!
When I reacted badly to the Flu jab i had in December (and am still trying to recover from), I took this subject more seriously and intend to have a particular test (Melisa Test) to determine which heavy metals I may be allergic to. Dental braces, and metal implants of any sort can all cause problems, including spinal rods or wires and can also cause other problems such as child autism or Multiple Sclerosis.
This link will give more information and there is a Scoliosis questionnaire you can complete on the website: http://www.mercurymadness.org/
