Osteonecrosis of the Jaw
- Name: Deanna VanWestenberg
In January 2012 I was diagnosed with Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (ONJ) due to bisphosphonate drugs taken during chemo treatments for cancer. I had never had any kind of dental problems or dental work done prior to getting ONJ. I was very scared. No one seems to know much about it and even the specialist I went to would only say, "oh I'm very sorry for you", which made me even more scared. I only took 3 doses of intervenes Zometa and my jaw and teeth started hurting so much I was taking mega pain pills, and finally stopped the Zometa when bone started coming through my gums. I had to continue with the pain pills, antibiotics and mouthwashes for quite some time after I stopped taking the Zometa. Although the pain did go away, the ONJ did not and over the past 8 months it kept getting a little worse. There are no known treatments for ONJ.
Miraculously, this past weekend I tried the new method given in the new book using drops in a shot glass (letting the fumes sit in your mouth), and thank-you Lord, in 3 days my ONJ has completely gone away, and my gums totally healed. I have been brushing my teeth with MMS for some time but apparently the gas procedure did the trick.
Thank you and God bless you all!!
