TMJ Misalignments and Parkinson’s Symptoms

Question:

HELLO ROBERT:

I WAS TUNED IN TO BLOG RADIO WHEN YOU INTERVIEWED CHERYL RE: THE Dental APPLIANCE THAT ADJUSTMENTS TMJ MISALIGNMENTS. AS MY SON IS A GENERAL DENTIST. I DISCUSSED THE CONTENT OF THE INTERVIEW WITH HER, EVEN THO’ THE SOUND WAS QUITE POOR I WAS ABLE TO GET MOST OF WHAT WAS BEING SAID BY YOUR GUEST.

MY SON WAS QUITE PUZZLED BY THE INFORMATION PROVIDED & WAS UNABLE TO UNDERSTAND  HOW AN APPLIANCE  IN THE MOUTH FOR TMJ COULD  AMELIORATE THE SYMPTOMS OF PARKINSON’S. NEEDLESS TO SAY HE HAS  NOT TAKEN TO HIS LAB TO MAKE ME SUCH A DEVICE (LOL).

CAN YOU PUT ME IN TOUCH WITH A DENTIST DOING THIS WORK WHO KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT PARKINSON’S BUT CAN REVERSE THE SYMPTOMS? I’M ASSUMING YOUR GUEST PROVIDED CONTACT NUMBERS  /  E-MAIL ADDRESSES.

THANK -YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION TO MY REQUEST.

MYRTLE
COURTENAY, B.C.

Below is a link that lists dentists in Canada who have the special training and the equipment that is necessary to address TMJ misalignments. It requires special equipment to even do the diagnosis.

As for any guarantees – I am afraid there are none. Clearly, Cheryl’s experience is a positive one – though she is in the early stages of recovery. My experience with recovery is that no one therapy of any type will help a person become symptoms free. People who are on a solid road to recovery engage a combination of therapies that address the cause of their current neurological challenges.

It is possible that you do not even have a misalignment – and this therapy would not address whatever symptoms you might currently be experiencing. The primary issue that underlies your symptoms may be toxins or a trauma to a part of your body other than the neck and head.

It seems to me a good idea to at least have an assessment which a general dentist (such as your son) is not qualified to do (as I understand it).

I suggest you try downloading any of my previous radio programs (there are now 85) from itunes.com. Visit itunes. Search in the field on the right top of the page the term “Parkinsons Recovery.” You will then see a link for the Parkinsons Recovery Radio Show that will give you all the listings. Quality of downloads from Itunes is better than the radio show page. Of course – all downloads are free from Itunes (as is the case from the radio show page).
