A Treatment for TMJ that works

A few years ago I was suffering from Temporomandibular Joint and Muscle Disorder, or TMJ. TMJ refers to acute or chronic inflammation of the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull and typically results from habitual clenching and grinding of the teeth. My case had not yet progressed to the level that many people sufferer from, but still, the pain was enough to keep me up at night and it seemed to be getting worse over time.

To prevent my TMJ from worsening, my dentist fitted me with a mouth guard that was designed to prevent me from clenching and grinding my teeth at night. The night guard didn’t seem to work well for me and it caused me to drool buckets while I tried to fall asleep. I still had escalating tension in my jaw. Upon rising, my jaw felt like it didn’t line up correctly after wearing the night guard. With no other options except surgery, I tried to ignore the problem and push on through.

Then I found out about FSMT – Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy. I found a local natural health doctor who offered this service.

According to this doctor, my TMJ pain was caused by inflammation brought about over time by stress. While the jaw is inflamed it can’t heal. Further stress caused me to continue to grind my teeth and hold more tension in my jaw. The body needs the inflammation to go down before it can heal. That is exactly what FSMT does – it reduces inflammation very quickly.

Lance Armstrong, champion cyclist and 7-time winner of the Tour de France, used this same technology after each training session. FSMT greatly reduces inflammation of muscles and joints, which enabled Lance to train longer, without injury. Injury is the limiting factor for athletes. The longer you can train without injury the more you will be at your peak.

The doctor claimed she could cure TMJ with only a few treatments of FSMT. Such claims are all too common among natural health practitioners and western doctors alike, so I was skeptical. But the price was reasonable and I was out of options, so I decided to give it a try.

The treatment is totally painless. The current is applied for a short amount of time and the healing starts immediately. In my case, I had a total of three treatments for my TMJ.

That was 3 years ago and it has not returned since. Obviously, each person is different. It may take longer for some. But this was one of the few times in my life that a healing modality worked this quickly and permanently. If you suffer from TMJ, try Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy rather than living with the pain or resorting to surgery.

    I had TMJ really bad for years. Interestingly, when I gave up gluten, it completely disappeared. Since gluten is inflammatory (to those of us who are allergic at least) it really goes along with what you are saying about the FSMT curing TMJ by alleviating inflammation.

    Thanks for sharing your story. A lot of people may have TMJ and don’t even know it because some of the symptoms are very common, like frequent headaches, neck and muscle pain and ringing in the ears.
