HEADACHES,TMJ AND ORTHOMOLECULAR MEDICINE

Question rrom Phil Bohnert, MD How about ortho-molecular treatments?

Reply: Orthomolecular Medicine is a term originally coined by Linus Pauling one of the greatest minds of the last century. It is medicine that idealizes the health of the total individual by correcting or optimizing the nutritional and biochemical stautus of the body.

Neuromuscular Dentistry is a form of orthomolecular medicine optimizing and correcting not nutritional but neurological input into the trigeminal nerve. The trigeminal nerve accounts for almost half of total input to the brain.

There are corrections in biochemical homeostasis at neurojunctions when it is optimized. There are also major changes to brain chemistry from control of blood flow to the brain br the trigeminal nerve.

Thank You Dr Bonnert
