The theory is based on the same principles as Acupuncture proclaiming that each tooth in the mouth represents a meridian or channel through which the body's qi, or energy passes. Every meridian associated with a particular tooth has a relationship with other areas of the body. The theory is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, and has been used as a method to treat a variety of ailments for thousands of years.

However, does Acupuncture actually work? Is there any scientific evidence that a "meridian" even exists? The debate between the skeptics and believers is an ongoing. Yet, why are there so many believers in the first place - arguing that their own experience validates Acupuncture as a real treatment to certain pains or other physical issues?

This episode covers these questions, plus gets into the reasons why Dr. Zeines believes the tooth-meridian connection plays an important role in treating his patients.
