This reaction causes oxidation of the metals which leach into the tissues, the galvanic reaction creates an electrical stress in the region, the metals are toxic and the patient may also be allergic to some or all of the metals used.
Dr Thomas Rau measures the galvanic reactivity of the metals in the mouth which permanently disturb the meridian(s) causing autoimmune diseases. All metals have a redox (reduction-oxidation) potential and titanium (frequently used in implants) has a very large negative potential. For this reason, it should not be combined with any other restorative metals and then only used if the patient has been screened for titanium allergy first. The metals are cleared from the region via the lymphatic and venous systems. 3 mins
