On Monday, I had to have some dental work done. Luckily, I don’t have a fear of dentists. And I am very fortunate – my dentist is kind, caring and gentle. So I wasn’t in the least worried!
Before going to the dentist, I took a dose of homeopathic Arnica. Arnica taken before visits to the dentist help minimise the bruising and swelling that can sometimes occur during dental work.
As I sat in the chair, I had two injections of anaesthetic (I was having two fillings done – one to replace an old loose one, and another to ‘repair’ a tooth where the gum had receded and I was experiencing exquisite sensitivity there), and then my dentist began her work.
As she began working on my tooth, I felt my heartbeat begin to race. This totally surprised me! To settle my racing heart, I quietly placed my hands on my belly and discretely began to give myself some Reiki. Within a minute or two, my heart settled and I relaxed again.
Soon enough my fillings were completed and I was on my way home.
Once home I had some more homeopathic remedies:
Arnica – to settle the bruising and swelling.
Hypericum – to help the nerves recover.
Phosphorus – to help my body clear the anaesthetic from my system.
The next day I still felt bruised, and like my jaw was a little out of alignment.
I continued with the Arnica, and I went to my chiropractor, who adjusted my spine and the TMJ joints of my jaw. He explained that anaesthetics for dental work can trigger biochemical sublaxations. After my adjustment, I felt so much better!
Now, fully recovered and no longer experiencing any discomfort in my teeth or jaw, I am so grateful for dentists, for homeopathy and for chiropractors!
If you have dental work coming up, why not ask your homeopath and chiropractor how they can support you during this time to help you heal and recover as quickly as possible!
And, if you have been attuned to Reiki, don’t forget that you can use Reiki anytime you need it – even while having dental work done!
Wishing you health, healing and happiness, always.
