Nearly 40 years ago, Dr. Huggins found that removing amalgams and/or root canal teeth without following the proper, step-by-step protocol could cause the onset of autoimmune diseases that were not there previously. During the final decades of his life, he pioneered the initial development of what is now known as the Huggins-Grube Patient Protection Protocol. As a highly refined standard of care, it provides far more benefit than risk.

For years, Dr. Huggins referred prospective patients to dentists who had attended some of his seminars. Unfortunately, over the passage of time, many people called him back to complain that they were in an even worse condition after having their amalgams removed.

Upon investigation, it was determined that many of these dentists were omitting the majority of the Protocol recommended by Dr. Huggins. Moreover, they were placing root canals. Root canals, in fact, are worse at creating degenerative and autoimmune diseases than mercury exposure from amalgam fillings. Thus, Dr. Huggins felt that he was directing people from the proverbial frying pan into the fiery inferno of autoimmune disease. So, he stopped referring patients.


Please note that all Centers for Healing members have separate practices from Dr. Grube’s office. As such, Dr. Grube does not teach or oversee general dental techniques of any private practice. All concerns or questions originating from dental treatment should be directed to the individual dentist’s office that did the treatment. Dr. Grube has no jurisdiction in these circumstances.
