Orthodontics and General Dentistry

A three-dimensional structural symmetry of the maxilla and its suspension under a symmetricall skull in the correct sagittal, coronal and transverse planes is of key importance as a baseline for other corrective measures to restore correct occlusion.
The existing paradigm of orthodontics lacks foresight into the very serious implications of incorrect treatment.

Breathing

Breathing - the in-depth connections to many illnesses and symptoms

Breathing, or "external respiration", brings air into the lungs where gas exchange takes place in the alveoli through diffusion into the circulatory system. This carries oxygen to and from cells, where "cellular respiration" (CR) takes place. CR extracts energy from the reaction of oxygen with molecules derived from food and produces carbon dioxide as a waste product.
Jaw asymmetries seriously impede the capacity of our lungs to achieve maximal external respiration.

Atlas asymmetry

"The award winning author of 'Correction of the Atlas-Fundamental discovery or hoax', Francis George-Perrin says: "It is difficult to stomach that a fundamental element of human beings' equilibrium has gone unnoticed for centuries in the auditoriums of academic teachings."
However, during my research I discovered that DD Palmer, the inventor of Chiropractic, discovered this anomaly towards the end of the 19th century amongst 97% of his subjects and in fact, Chiropractic was started to correct just this one imbalance. Atlas correction has continued in some practices using a technique called Atlas Orthogonal. This newer technique of Atlas correction coupled with corrective orthodontics, radically improves outcomes. Please read this article to acquaint yourself of this concept:

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis

The conventional explanation:
"MS is a progressive inflammatory disease affecting the central nervous system in which the myelin sheaths covering the axons of the brain are damaged and the transmission of nerve signals is blocked, which leads to eventual paralysis and vision loss. Until recently MS was widely considered an autoimmune system disease with possible viral causes, which has hereditary predisposition factors. However, the core-cause of the disease has remained undetermined, which has lead to serious difficulties in preventing, treating, and managing the disease."

Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia is a neuropathic disorder characterized by episodes of intense pain in the face, originating from the trigeminal nerve. It has been described as among the most painful conditions known to mankind. It is estimated that 1 in 15,000 people suffer from TN, although the actual figure may be significantly higher due to frequent misdiagnosis.

Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. The motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease result from the death of dopamine-generating cells in the substantia nigra, a region of the midbrain; the cause of this cell death is unknown. Early in the course of the disease, the most obvious symptoms are movement-related; these include shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement and difficulty with walking and gait.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

RA is described as a "chronic, systemic inflammatory disorder that may affect many tissues, but principally attacks the joints" The treatment mainly involves the use of Steroids.
However Hench who received the nobel prize for the discovery and application of cortisone to rheumatoid arthritis, was visited by the British Rheumatologist Dr Oswald Savage in 1950. He found Hench ‘depressed by the increasingly numerous reports of side effects… 'My generation will never forget the severe complications they produced – the moon face, the perforated and bleeding ulcers, the bruising and crushed vetetabrae’.
Have we been barking up the wrong tree? The articles here demonstrate the key roll that Jaw asymmetry plays in the causation of this illness.

Is ME/CFS caused by Temporo Mandibular Joint Dysfunction?

It is repeatedly claimed that there is no cure for ME/CFS. That its' cause is unknown. This is patently wrong and often deceptive as many who have recovered from this condition through correction of their TMJ and other body asymmetries will testify.

Fibromyalgia

Conventionally Fibromyalgia (FM or FMS) is described as "a medical disorder characterized by chronic widespread pain and allodynia, a heightened and painful response to pressure. Fibromyalgia symptoms are not restricted to pain, leading to the use of the alternative term fibromyalgia syndrome for the condition."
However, please read the topics to discover that 'Fibromyalgia' is most likely a subset of symptoms attributable to cranio-dental and skeletal asymmetries.

Ulcerative colitis

Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory disease of the large intestine, or colon. In ulcerative colitis, the inner lining (mucosa) of the intestine becomes inflamed (red and swollen) and develops ulcers (open, painful wounds). Ulcerative colitis is often the most severe in the rectal area, which can cause frequent diarrhoea.

Migraines/Headaches

Migraine is a chronic disorder characterised by recurrent moderate to severe headaches often in association with a number of autonomic nervous system symptoms. Typically the headache is unilatera and pulsating in nature, lasting from 2 to 72 hours. Associated symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, photophobia (increased sensitivity to light). The pain is generally aggravated by physical activity. Up to one-third of people with migraine headaches perceive an aura; a transient visual, sensory, language, or motor disturbance which signals that the headache will soon occur.

Hearing loss/Deafness/Tinnitus

We get increasingly deaf as we get older but in some deafness can be of a very early onset.
Hearing loss is categorised according to the increase in volume above the usual level necessary before the listener can detect it.
Deafness is defined as a degree of impairment such that a person is unable to understand speech even in the presence of amplification.

Tinnitus is the perception of sound within the human ear in the absence of corresponding external sound. Tinnitus can result from a wide range of underlying causes: neurological damage (multiple sclerosis), ear infections, oxidative stress, foreign objects in the ear, nasal allergies that prevent (or induce) fluid drain, or wax build-up. Withdrawal from benzodiazepines may cause tinnitus as well. In-ear earphones, whose sound enters directly into the ear canal without any opportunity to be deflected or absorbed elsewhere, are a common cause of tinnitus when volume is set beyond moderate levels.

Infertility

The WHO defines infertility as follows:
“Infertility is the inability to conceive a child. A couple may be considered infertile if, after two years of regular sexual intercourse, without contraception, the woman has not become pregnant. Infertility may be caused by infection in the man or woman, but often there is no obvious underlying cause."
However, bodily symmetry is the key to a successful conception, full term pregnancy and a healthy newborn baby. Please click the title to read about successful conceptions following Symmetry treatment.

Palatal myoclonus is a rare movement disorder with rapid spasms of the soft palate muscles, which results in clicking or popping in the ear. The movements of the palate vary in rate between 40 and 200 beats per minute. Uniquely, the clicking noise does not subside when the patient sleeps. The frequency of the tremor is highly variable among different patients and may vary within a single individual, illustrating the atypical features of the tremor. When associated with eye movements, it is known as oculo-palatal myoclonus.

Alopecia Areata

The conventional explanation for this condition is:
"Alopecia areata (AA) is a medical condition in which hair is lost from some or all areas of the body, usually from the scalp. Because it causes bald spots on the scalp, especially in the first stages, it is sometimes called spot baldness. In 1–2% of cases, the condition can spread to the entire scalp (Alopecia totalis) or to the entire epidermis (Alopecia universalis). Conditions resembling AA, and having a similar cause, occur also in other species."
We have had one patient who recovered completely with Symmetry treatment Please click to see the topic.

Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating that's not necessarily related to heat or exercise. Treatment is prescription-strength antiperspirants. In severe cases, surgery to either remove the sweat glands or to disconnect the nerves responsible for the overproduction of sweat is carried out. However, could there be a different treatment for this embarrassing conditon?

PMT/Menstruation/Amenorrhea

Copied from Infertility section above:
"... so my partner who thought she was otherwise pretty healthy visited Dr. Amir. He noticed that her breathing was restricted and fitted her for a brace... she felt as if she could breathe with greater ease as soon as she wore the brace and had more energy. She also noticed pretty quickly that her periods changed (in a healthy way).. within 4 months she was pregnant. Our beautiful son Teo is now 5 months old!"

".....and after looking at pictures of my spine, it's practically straight! Within 4 months, I was ovulating and within 6 months I was pregnant with my first child! She is now 10 months old and life has never been the same."
