Over 10 million Americans are suffering and – much like you – are looking for TMJ pain relief.

Have you already wasted your time with so-called TMJ specialists? My apologies if you have. I also spent many years going to various doctors and dentists that claimed they could cure me. The only thing they cured was my savings account from having too much money in it! Additionally, they kept giving me side-effect inducing medications that only masked my pain. What’s the point? TMJ disorder needs to be treated directly at the source.
And that’s exactly what you’re going to learn how to do today!
Home Remedies For TMJ Disorder To The Rescue!
Home remedies are far and away the most effective ways to combat this awful disorder. The key for doing so is changing your daily habits. I’m sure you’d agree that we’re all creatures of habit. We like the foods we like, we enjoy the music we enjoy, and we crave the liquids we crave.
In order to alleviate your TMJ pain, however, you need to slowly incorporate new habits into your daily routine. This might seem intimidating at first. Don’t worry. We’re going to take baby steps.
The first change I want you to make to your daily routine is with your diet. Fear not, for we aren’t talking about extreme diets or eliminating every single food that brings you joy. Just start with these slight tweaks:
- Slowly cut back on your caffeine intake. You don’t have to stop cold turkey, but try cutting back on the amount you consume each day. Caffeine keeps your muscles tense, which increases your discomfort.
- Eat magnesium-rich foods. They have the opposite effect of caffeine and will help your muscles relax.
- Drink at least 64 oz of water each day.
- Drink green tea. It’s an amazing alternative to sodas and energy drinks.
As you saw from the diet tips, the best remedies for TMJ disorder are those that relax the muscles. That’s why another great tip is to get at least 15 minutes of exercise each and every day. You don’t have to do anything crazy; I’m not suggesting you attempt Cirque du Soleil stunts in your front room.
Do the things you love. Go for a walk at a nearby park. Take your dog for a stroll. Pump up the tires in that old bike and hit the pavement. Whatever gets your blood pumping, get out there and do it!
I can hear you now. “Uh, yeah. I already know I should breath. What kind of advice is this?”
I’m talking about the kind of deep breathing that will relieve tension. We all know that stressful life situations can cause our bodies to clench up and become “tight.” When this happens, the muscles in your jaw, neck, and shoulders get so tight that you’ll start to experience pain. By breathing deeply for at least five minutes each day, you can slowly begin to relax your entire body.
Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Inhale …
