Chewing and Your Bite

Digestion starts with chewing properly

.

.

.

.

When food enters your mouth and you start chewing, this stimulates the release of pancreatic hormones and triggers other digestive organs to produce saliva.

.

.

.

.

.

Saliva contains its own digestive enzymes, so the more you chew, the more time these enzymes have to work while the food is still in your mouth. This makes digesting less stressful for your stomach and small intestines.

Austrian physician Franz Xaver Mayr showed that people’s digestive systems deteriorate when they eat too fast, too much, too often and too unhealthy.

He developed a diagnostic and therapeutic system to help restore the health of the intestines and thus of the entire organism.

He was a great believer that poor nutrition is reflected in the state of the teeth and gums and that ‘death beg
.

.

Therefore I recommend you eat slowly and chew every single bite twenty two times!

Chewing gum fools your brain and digestive organs into believing you’re eating food. Your stomach, pancreas, and other digestive organs prepare themselves to process food.

As chewing gum is not food, the production of digestive enzymes isn’t required. Instead, the overflow of unused digestive enzymes could start ‘attacking’ the walls of your intestines.

The parts of your body that contribute to you being able to chew, breath, and swallow properly as well as keeping your posture stable involve your teeth, gums, jaws, supporting bones, muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons. For the whole system to function properly, every single part of this system must function properly.

It is important to understand what an important part of the skeletal system the teeth are. The way your top and bottom teeth fit together is crucial for the balance of your whole body and is a determining factor of the correct posture of your head.

.

.

If you have a skeletal posture imbalance your body will have created patterns that compensate either up from your feet  or down from the head.
.

.

For example if your jaw isn´t in the correct position it may cause your head to be slightly imbalanced on the neck. All the vertebrae and muscles that control them have to compensate. This can manifest as neck aches, head aches, back and shoulder pain, misaligned hips and uneven leg length.

Your Dental Check Up

. . . . .

.

.

.

.

.

If you haven´t been to the dentist for a while, make sure you get a comprehensive dental check up. . . . .

.

.

.

.

Your dentist will probably take a series of x-rays to check if any decay is hidden in between the teeth, below fillings or crowns, if the roots of your teeth are healthy and the bone is healthy. . . . . .

He will also scan your mouth for any signs of cancer, check your chewing habits, chewing related muscles and your TMJ. . .

If you have experienced any discomfort or pain, now is the time to tell your dentist.

Whatever treatment appears to be necessary and is recommended make sure you fully understand the procedures with its pros and cons as well as the alternatives.
