TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is a discrepancy between teeth, the jaw joint and the muscles around the mouth which help us to open and close. It is painful and quite aggravating. The pain radiates across the cheekbone, into the center of my ear and down the jaw line.
What causes TMJ?
Trauma - car accident
Misalignment of teeth
Grinding teeth during sleep
Pain in the shoulders, neck and face
Clicking sound when opening and closing the mouth
Difficulty opening and closing mouth
While this situation has been annoying,I have found a natural, pain management treatment that works wonderfully!
"Tapped directly from the copaiba tree in Brazil, this oil supports the body's natural response to irritation and injury. It also may be used to soothe minor physical discomforts."
This is a powerful anti-inflammatory oil which helps regulate the the body's immune system and contains the highest amounts of beta caryophyllene (55 percent) of any known essential oils available today!
Each evening, before bed, and again in the morning; I put one drop under my tongue! Yes, just open the mouth and let a drop in. I found instant relief! In fact, when I wake in the morning I can actually open and close my mouth without pain.
This has been my routine for almost a month and although I am not sure what has caused this situation, I am happy to have found a natural, therapeutic essential oil that has brought me balance and relief.
