Condition of the Week: Temperomandibular Joint Pain -TMJ
Help someone today who has TMJ !
Your jaw joint, or temperomandibular joint (TMJ) gets its name from the two bones which form the joint. The temporal bone of your skull and the mandible or jaw bone fit together to form a hinge-like joint. TMJ can cause headaches, ringing in your ear,face pain and pain across your neck and shoulders. Popping and clicking of the TMJ while opening your mouth or chewing indicates that your TMJ is not functioning properly. When an imbalance of the TMJ is found it can be corrected by balancing the jaw's muscular activity with Chiropractic.
Nutrition Myths---Don't Be Fooled

Wow, I'd be very sick if this were true! Fact: Egg yolks are rich in cholesterol, about 200mg. Current research shows that there is no link between egg eaters and heart disease. Also, eating foods that contain cholesterol have little or no impact on blood cholesterol levels. The exception might be severe diabetics, which should limit egg consumption to 2-3 per week.
