New Supplemental Blend Treats TMJ Pain Naturally
Most everyone has heard of TMJ, the popular acronym for the temporomandibular joint, and the jaw pain and dysfunction associated with it. What they don't know is that TMJ is so common that approximately 50 percent of the population will experience this condition at some point in their lives. At any given time, 10 to 15 million people are walking around with the aching, muscle spasms and even headaches that are all attributable to TMJ, according to Dr. Jeffrey B. Wheaton, a Santa Fe, N.M.- based oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
"Unfortunately, many people don't realize they have TMJ or that there are easy, non-invasive ways to manage and even treat this disorder," Wheaton says. "What this means is that people are suffering needlessly."
In treating TMJ patients, Wheaton prescribes medications, such as painkillers, and offers surgery when it's absolutely necessary. More recently, however, he's been moving toward a less-invasive, more holistic approach to TMJ treatment options. What's more, Wheaton is officially unveiling an all- natural supplement that he has personally developed: Natural TMJ Relief.
"There are many naturally occurring substances that produce a calming effect and therefore reduce the muscle spasms and inflammation that contribute to TMJ disorders," Wheaton says. "The first product of its kind in the marketplace, Natural TMJ Relief is the perfect blend of the vitamins and herbs needed for a healthy temporomandibular joint system. It's not harmful to patients, and it provides the nutrients that sooth TMJ pain and discomfort."
Factors contributing to TMJ include bite problems and trauma to the joint. However, stress -- typically manifested as clenching or grinding of the teeth -- is the number-one cause of TMJ. In such cases, eliminating or reducing stress is the long-term goal. Meanwhile, taking Natural TMJ Relief, using a bite-guard, and doing physical therapy to relax and strengthen the muscles may also eliminate TMJ symptoms.
"Nowadays, supplements are very respected and have even gone mainstream," Wheaton says. "With so many people suffering from this prolific condition, the demand for Natural TMJ Relief is very real. And in general, people taking Natural TMJ Relief are less likely to undergo surgery or take prescription drugs -- the main reason I developed this unique product and launched an educational website to promote it as well as address issues related to TMJ."
