Temporal Mandibular Joint (TMJ) Problems

Pain at the angle of your jaw is not due to a poorly fitting joint. It fits perfectly but the muscles nearby are pulling it out of joint with their frequent spasms. There is always a hidden tooth infection present. Ask the dentist to search for hidden tooth infections and to clean your cavitations (you will need to find an alternative dentist, and read Dental Cleanup, page 409). Begin immediately to heal these bone lesions with vitamin D (40,000 to 50,000 units once a day for 3 weeks, followed by 2 such doses per week forever), milk-consumption for calcium, and a magnesium oxide tablet. (See bone healing, page 87).

Kill pinworms with a zapper or frequency generator in yourself and family members twice a week and keep everyone’s fingernails short for extra hygiene in the family for a month to prevent reinfection. Pinworms can cause tooth grinding and contribute to TMJ dysfunction. For extra muscle relaxation, take two magnesium tablets at bedtime and valerian capsules.
