Orthodontics

.

.

.

“Straight teeth” is what most people think of orthodontic treatment but crooked teeth are just a symptom of a bodily imbalance that appears in the jaw. And fixed brackets are simply symptomatic treatments.

.

.

.

.

An orthodontist looks at the position of the lower jaw in relation to the upper jaw, the head and vertebrae of the neck and spine as well as the hips and legs.

.

Any imbalance here may be causing problems with breathing, snoring and sleep apnoea, post nasal drip and even seemingly unrelated conditions such as bed wetting, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Immune Deficiency Syndrome and problems with the eyes and ears.

.

It is important to start (holistic/functional) treatment at an early age to work with teeth and jaw as they develop. This way you provide the opportunity for a gentle approach to work in conjunction with the whole body.

.

Functional Orthodontics helps to eliminate blockages, loosen rigidity, straighten up what is bent and transforms disharmony into harmony. It also helps to open up the respiratory airways, straighten the spine and increase of blood flow and activation of lymphatic drainage.

.

.

.

 

Every treatment is a partnership between the orthodontist and the child/parent; each has a specific and important role to play during the treatment program.

.

The role of the orthodontist is to correctly define the problem and to achieve the desired result using as little force as possible.  The child and the parent then need to work together to wear the braces and perform the recommended exercises.

.

To make orthodontic treatment a success it is useful to support it with other therapies such as Lymphatic drainage, Cranio-Sacral therapy, Myofunctional therapy (to overcome improper tongue movements), Magnetic field therapy (to stimulate the growth of bone), Homeopathy and sometimes even Psychotherapy has proven beneficial.

Homeopathy works with the body’s own recovery systems to help the person get well naturally.

.

.

.

.
.

In homeopathic theory, disease is seen as originating not originally because of pathogens like viruses or bacteria, but because of a disruption in the “vital force” or life energy of the individual.

Therefore, in homeopathic theory, colloidal silver or antibiotics or hot herbal compresses or whatever you use to “kill germs” will not cure you.
.

.

.

.

.
Homeopathic remedies help your body correct the underlying reason,s for the disease. So rather than treating the symptoms as “modern western” medicine does, it treats the person.

.
Today dental practice has become very high-tech and invasive. In some ways working against the body.
Using homeopathy, dentists are able to perform much more gentle treatment, creating much less anxiety and trauma in the process.

Homeopathy will also aid the recovery process, reducing the intensity, and length of any swelling, bleeding or discomfort you may feel.

On the HISTORY of Homeopathy:

All people have inherited weaknesses and susceptibilities with which they are born. In Hahnemann´s theory these are known as “miasms.” Some of these predispositions are genetic tendencies to certain conditions such as hip dysplasia or allergies. Some are behavioural; others are neurological.
Miasms can also be contracted after birth, from infectious diseases, suppressive treatments, and other causes.
.

.

.
One child might be born who is sensitive to vaccines, while another has no reaction from them, but may be unable to tolerate certain foods, or pollens, or perhaps has an inherited weakness in his eyes.

TOOTH ACHE

There are few types of pain that can make life such a constant misery as toothache.  Only if you have experienced this kind of pain yourself will you understand this statement.

Toothache is generally recognised as pain experienced around a single tooth, several teeth, the gum area or the jaws.  Although the main causes are likely to be dental problems, there are instances when the condition may originate in the temporo-mandibular joint, the ’chewing’ muscles or somewhere else in the body.

.

.

Unfortunately for humans and animals there are many different causes of toothache. They can range from a problem with the tooth itself or an underlying deterioration in the gum to a blocked colon, a kidney condition or many other physical imbalances.

.

In the book you will discover twenty ways to deal with tooth pain such as:

Use an ice cube, Colloidal silver, Garlic, Cloves and Whisky.
