This is a testimonial to Dr. Meyer’s expertise in the industry. Several years ago, a front tooth which had a crown for many years broke and could not be saved. Due to the fact that the tooth was so visible I decided to go ahead with an implant. This was performed by a very expert specialist that had been in the business for many years. I had no problems with the implant but had strange symptoms that had never occurred before: bladder infections and aches and pains, irritable bowel symptoms, aches and pains along the left abdominal side from the ribs to the hips, fatigue and generally not feeling well. After being shown a better method of cleaning around the implant, symptoms improved but my body never completely resolved. I visited several specialists who all stated they could find nothing wrong so, as this occurred after the implant, I felt that it must be the implant disrupting my energy system. A fact stated by specialists in the holistic medicine field.
 
I decided to return to the implant specialist with regard to having the implant removed. He would not even consider telling me that I was better off leaving the implant where it was and that I would have too much bone loss if it was removed.
 
Later I discussed these issues with Dr. Meyer and finally decided to have the implant removed. I had found the procedure of placing the implant rather traumatic with a week of antibiotics and pain medications and was not looking forward to the removal, but with Dr. Meyer’s expertise and holistic approach it was easy and a trauma free experience with no swelling, minimal discomfort and no medications. As the implant was being removed, I felt the whole left side of the abdomen and hip become relaxed. This convinced me that the implant was the root of my symptoms. The issue of bone loss was resolved by a bone graft performed after the removal.
 
It has taken a while for my body to fully recover after two years of energy disruption, but most symptoms have now been resolved. For anyone who finds themselves in this situation, I would recommend not hesitating to discuss this with Dr. Meyer with regard to removing the implant in a non-stressful environment and procedure.
 
It should be noted that the implant in question was the regular metal type and not the metal-free zirconia that Dr. Meyer uses.
