About the Bruxism Help Program

Bruxism is the medical term for teeth grinding or clenching. If you suffer from bruxism, you know how painful that can be sometimes. I”ve had bruxism for years now and I sometimes feel like shooting myself in the head because it is so freaking painful.

I’ve been looking for a bruxism treatment forever, literally spent hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars and nothing but pills help. The problem is I hate taking drugs!!!

Last week, my dentist referred me to the Bruxism Help Program (www.BruxismHelpProgram.com) and it is the best treatment I ever tried for teeth grinding.

The Bruxism Help Program is jam packed of exercises to relax the jaw, mouth, neck, and the whole body. While I was a little skeptical about it, I wasn’t anymore after trying a few of the exercises.

Highly recommended to anyone that has bruxism.

Cool Twitter Backgrounds

Are you guys on Twitter yet? If not, you’re missing out a bunch!! Like most of these social networking sites (except facebook), you can customize the look and feel of your profile. Since Twitter is pretty new, there are not many websites that offer Twitter backgrounds but I found a cool site called Twitter Background Images.

Pretty easy to remember, isn’t it? So if you’re looking for a cool Twitter wallpaper, check out www.TwitterBackgroundImages.com.

Symptoms of TMJ

Temporomandibular joint, also known as TMJ, is the joint at either side of your head that moves your jaw. It’s liable to develop problems, like any other joint in the body. Dysfunction of the joint is also known as TMJ.

Causes of TMJ

This condition can result from many things such as overuse in the form of excessive grinding or clenching of the teeth due to a stressful lifestyle. Anything causing jaw tension for excessive periods of time can result in TMJ.

It can also result from poorly aligned upper and lower jaws. This may be due to a an inflammatory condition of the joint such as arthritis or due to any sort of external trauma affecting the joint.

Common Symptoms:
– Pain in the ear
– Migraines or Headaches
– Jaw locking at certain positions
– Clicking or popping sounds when moving Jaw
– Soreness and pain over the temples, cheeks or jaws.

Treatment options:

Elimination of underlying causes is the key such as avoiding excessive tension in the jaws by avoiding things like teeth clenching or gum chewing. Other options include medical treatments, dental procedures or major surgery.

Medication that can be used can range from simple over the counter analgesics or prescribed pain killers in severe conditions. There are also dental options such as a device known as a biteplate that can be used to prevent teeth grinding and jaw clenching.

Surgical procedures are better kept as a last resort. These procedures involve the removal of the disk separating the skull and the jaw. It is an option better reserved for advanced cases only and should resorted to after all other options fail.

Three Websites You Should Look At

I would like to introduce you to 3 websites that you should definitely check out.

The first one is Katherine Page‘s blog. Katherine is the author of the TMJ Help Program, an ebook that gives exercises to cure TMJ. On this blog, Katherine talks about TMJ (obviously) but also about a bunch of personal stuff. You can also follow Katherine Page on Twitter @tmjhelp.

The second website is a site I found on digg to cure cold sores. I have to shamely admit that I’ve been suffering from cold sores for years and this website, http://www.coldsorenaturalremedy.com/ offers the best cold sore natural cure.

The last site is a blog that talks about natural health. If you read this blog regularly, you know that I am a big fan of natural stuff. Go Natural is the name of this blog and you should give it a try if you’re remotely interested in natural health issues.

That’s it for today :-)

New Fibromyalgia Website

Fibromyalgia is a chronic, widespread, debilitating disease that often manifests as diffuse pain, constant muscle aches and overwhelming fatigue. Although it affects about 2-6% of the general population (about five million people), fibromyalgia is not a contagious disease. Women are about 9 times more likely to be diagnosed than men, and it is most prevalent in prevalent in people between 20-50 years of age.

Fibromyalgia usually displays a variety of symptoms including generalized aches and pains, increased sensitivity of the skin, chronic fatigue, weakness or dizziness, muscle stiffness or joint pain and migraine headaches. Symptoms of fibromyalgia vary greatly between individuals but almost all suffer from an associated sleep disorder. Depression, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, numbness and tingling of the extremities and heightened sensitivity to stimuli may also be present.

Currently, there is no known specific cause of fibromyalgia. Popular opinion suggests a disorder in pain perception and processing in the pathways to the brain. Research has shown that fibromyalgia patients have elevated levels of substance P (involved with enhanced pain perception) and a lower than normal production of natural stress hormones.

Angular Cheilitis Treatment

The angular Cheilitis symptoms that we all are familiar with, consists of “splits” or cracks at the corners of our mouths, accompanied by a rash-like redness and inflammation. Pain and discomfort are also other factors, of course. But these are not the only Cheilitis symptoms… there are others that cut even deeper. We can even suffer on psychological and emotional levels, as we cringe within ourselves upon seeing the reactions of others as they see our face. We keep ourselves from showing affection, as we don’t want to kiss our loved ones or make them feel uneasy.

The only problem that faces us now, is to do this without damaging our skin in other ways, such as drying it up until it peels and cracks. Once we figure this out, you can kiss all angular Cheilitis symptoms goodbye (no pun intended). Thankfully, there is a way. There exists a home remedy that can give you relief within minutes, and completely terminate this affliction in mere days. It’s all very simple, and you most likely have all of the natural ingredients in your kitchen or bathroom. If you’d like to learn more about this, I’ll gladly shed more light on this for you.
