In Dr. Price’s day, scholars insisted that tooth crowding was caused by race mixing; today the explanation is soft foods that have ?decreased chewing demands. I can understand this to a degree, but what about children born with narrow palates? So, in the interest of seeing how chewing might work on my mid-60’s jaw and teeth that are slowly moving apart, I thought I’d try mastic gum. But what the hell? I am curious to see how I do in the sun this summer. Anxiety, on the other hand, had been a serious challenge for about 15 years. Great work! Hi George, I’ve looked into Afferent input as you suggest (intriguing and I plan on learning more) but haven’t yet come across any reference to teeth. Ol’ Weston A. However, we know enough about endocrine disruptors (especially environmental estrogens, which are indeed wreaking havoc with both wildlife and human populations) to know the main culprit: It is not DDT or PCBs, but rather, 17-alpha ethinyl estradiol (aka EE2), the synthetic estrogen drug in every formulation of combination oral contraceptive. But I’m interested in it for facial structure reasons, which is outside the scope of ABC. Super tough, definitely the toughest gum I’ve ever chewed in my life. So yes, what I’m doing is quite atypical! You can email it to me at luck (dot) alyssa (at) gmail (dot) com. There are certainly reports about boron’s being beneficial for such conditions as osteoporosis, but you may be more familiar with such studies than I. Not sure if that’s even necessary. I don’t have IBS (that I know of), but definitely have gut dysfunction. What have you been up to? Thank you for the link you posted Evan. Matt Stonie upset Joey 'Jaws' Chestnut to win the July Fourth hot dog eating contest at Nathan's Famous in Coney Island, ending the champ's bid for a ninth straight victory on Saturday afternoon. I’d like to just stick everything in a Vitamix and blend it to a liquid and drink it. Hanging around 180d helped my distrust of the religious aspect of science, distaste for infohrrea, understanding of relevance and context and the difference between information and knowledge and junk like that all blossom into a beautiful, deadly free thinking propaganda machine. I have a theory about human interaction with environments and the value of understanding them. If you google Flex Effect, the facial exercise, it features bone building exercises in part of the protocol. Perhaps you will find something new or interesting, though you likely know most of it. As previously stated, after reading your various posts, I know the diet/health/lifestyle thing is hardly new to you. And some are quite fashionable, like the dragon. (That’s what I like about Matt. That would be pretty cool, although, to be sure, this stuff is much more effective if it’s started at a young age while the jaw is still developing (although don’t be fooled, our bones/skeletons are always changing in response to stimuli, just VERY slowly). If you can do it, do it. Been awhile since you have given us something to chew on (groan). You can see in the video here ( that he has a broad face and well developed jaw. Here’s a blog I wrote on the subject: Again, thank you for some great advices, and I’ll try my best to accept myself. Isolate variables and stop acting like you have all human problems figured out by reading some studies. the body is much too complex. Colin, you are truly an angry man….me too bro; but, please confirm…, per your mentioning, ‘to say there is only one variable relating to tooth decay is quackery? That initial mistake has caused a complete oversight of issues when excess amounts of retinol build up in the body. (and I doubt gum ever hurt anybody). Thanks for the reply. Singh Keynote” Never had them before I got IBS. My goal is to widen my upper palate enough to re-open the spaces where my bicuspids were extracted, and replace them with implants. )AND physical traits (narrow palates, retrusive mandibles, crowded teeth, etc.) Hi Nira! Remember, if even one example contradicts the theory, the honest scientist must go back to the drawing board and come up with another theory. Some cuts of meat are soft and wonderful, and some are chewy and full of gristle. youngmaxxing The Average Joe. as being a panacea for malocclusion, diabetes and/or a solution for world peace, they, and/or some of their apostles, also shortly thereafter start there own online marketing and sales of ‘nutraceuticals’ such as vitamins A, D, and K2, etc……go figure. Not just at night, when my family could hear me a whole house level away, but under stress I would clench and grind my teeth. I used both powder and paste and they both worked well. It promised to create whiter teeth, better facial structure, better sleep, etc. So I can only say that I am not aware of any case in which trying glycine as a supplement in any quantity has done anyone any harm–only temporary discomfort at worst. “Science will never work in the world of human nutrition.” That’s the kind of shit I’m talking about when I say you’re speaking in dogmatic absolutism. That would definitely be a work-out for the jaw!The premise of this article was that once we starting cooking our food, it became easier to chew and we could eat it faster. As such, seeing Dr. Singh work, his understanding of the complexity of these problems, and the results he’s published, is quite promising. Like Matt and Dr. Garrett write in their book “Solving the Paleo Equation,” running-away from the solution leads you right back to the problem. Of course, he wasn’t recommending that dose. (Might sound gross I know). BUT, I was also a grinder! Once a treatment has been tested rigorously, it no longer matters whether it was considered alternative at the outset. I do wonder what happens when changing tongue and neck posture. In addition to jazzercise and lame circuit training, they offered some nasty powdered meal replacement drink, which I drank for several months. As for the exercise sadly I can’t follow it because I’ve had TMJ pain since early teens and my dentist recently banned me from hard chewy foods. A year later, I was bitten by a tick. But, just having good posture and chewing a lot is not going to correct the modern plague of human illness and degeneration. ?Actually, some of the most malnourished people in the world have some of the best bones, teeth, nostrils, and jaw formation. He thought fat soluble vitamins A, D, and K2 were the most important “activators” of proper genetic expression as it pertained to healthy teeth and full formation of the dental arch (broad enough to accommodate all 32 teeth, including the wisdom teeth, without the crookedness that results from crowding). My eldest has terrible facial shape – very high palate, narrow mouth and now an overbite. Matt, I think you may find the work of Dr. David Singh (DDS, PHD, DMD) quite interesting. My item of choice was always a wet washcloth. Also, the nutrition aspect as the sole factor for dental health struck me as narrow-focused. Personally I wish there was better data, but dentistry, and TMD & Sleep Medicine in particular, are not given the most attention by medical providers. It is the bomb. That is an amazing thing to achieve. Of course you know what’s coming next: the key nutrient that most people lack from bones is that wonderful “non-essential” amino acid glycine, which is every third amino acid in collagen, the most abundant protein in our bodies (and mostly in the bones). foods that the Diet Industry tricked me into believing were poison (sugar, starch, salt, saturated fat- and sleep). I’m very sorry that the Foundation does not accept your comments because I consider them honest people; too bad! “Your slop is ready!”. Reactions: StuffedFrog. Yeah Lazlo, lots of projects.,,,,, p.s. Yes folks, Price missed the big one, and a generation of unfortunate kids were forced to choke down toxic and disgusting cod liver oil! All this makes some sense right? :-) In fact, I’m a don’t-know-much! I hear you about low-carb diets. Very interesting as I’ve seen this in my own mom, whose lifelong straight teeth have suddenly gone slightly crooked. Thanks to Steven Edholm for the heads up on Dr. Mew. Tell people that they may think they’re helping you, but it’s not, and you’re not interested in their suggestions, and will not engage in conversation about it. He has helped me immensely with things I never dreamed could be addressed. I also want to do activities like calisthenics, but there’s no way of pulling up my heavy body with my current strength, haha. ... 1016 10 goes on 30 minutes I could definitely do something 30 minutes Your car No problem 30 minutes Look at my jaw break I think I was Place 17 2018 I'm gonna step it up I gotta think it's like competition testing sitting right next to kicking my ass. So, again, I wonder how many people have one, two, several, or many of these (perhaps “silent”) challenges that are unknowingly affecting them? Right? But, under a different name, I would post a positive comment and it was published. and stress relief. Hey, amigo. It has no junk in it and they sell it in bulk. I read a book about green smoothies probably 12 years ago by raw vegan Victoria Boutenko who suggested exercising the jaw when drinking green smoothies to replace the lost chewing. I’ve seen some of Mew’s stuff and the clamingpower site, but the idea of chewing for up to 2 hours a day was daunting. So, thanks again for your work! Watch your fingers bro! Consequently, after a snack or soda or meal rich in fructose, your brain thinks “I’m starving!” even though you are quite overnourished, in fact. ‘Eat real food, Mostly plants’. I discovered Mewing through the claimingpower site a few years ago and it probably had the single bigest effect out of any heath intervention. Mouth breathing is also terrible for dental health, as it dries out your protective saliva. I know Matt has read several hundred books on the topic and I’ve read just a few. 2 questions: 1) you say that a “deficiency of glycine shows up in a hyperactive innate immune system”. So it wasn’t just chomping down, but having to do the opposing motion of pulling your jaws apart! But she also shows zero allergy symptoms and never mouth breaths whereas he other two do. I mention this because I also had a reputation for never chewing my food! @Ann: I’ll get tested then. Full Motion Picture Film coming soon. Finally, re: Dr. Lustig, why not ask him to take a look at glycine in the context of what I have said here and elsewhere (like on this blog and attached youtube videos). The Ab’s Walk video is also a must watch. Basically, vitamin A shouldn’t be a vitamin anyway, as the author has shown the original studies showing essential status to be flawed. Available from:, “The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. The engineer’s research is fantastic! Loneliness is very stressful and that can happen even when surrounded by people. And they did grow in straight after all. I wanted to share a brief glimpse of my story. It’s so hard to tease out causation with the complex problems we have now. :), I think his form of chewing is akin to walking on a treadmill all day. He also rejuvenated his body with exercises in his bed, as he was very ill and dying. * After a meal, if I desired sweets, I ate some fruit Thank you! but you are just causing more stress in your system when you are trying to “fight” your body. What would an evaluation have done except tell me what I already knew? You actually debunked WAP. This is especially true for women, who are taught as little girls are complimented for being pretty. (They’ll blame Ancel Keys for “covering it up”). I really don’t think you need to do very much chewing to properly stimulate the jaw, increase the musculature in your face, broaden the dental arch, and strengthen the teeth. Thanks If it’s a relative, walk out of the room, put on head phones, whatever it takes to let them know you’re not interested. Back and forth has you say. Such reports have been rare, and the symptoms have gone away after glycine was discontinued.”. does not make your ad hominem comments civil or useful. You have quite an interesting background and set of skills! Price and Price Pottenger Foundations, did something that really seems to have deeply touched millions of modern humans–he went on a worldwide voyage of Darwin-esque proportions to see what the last remaining primitive peoples did and ate, and how that affected their health. I have thought about putting it in the freezer in between uses? It’s not that you just regain it, in most cases you add ADDITIONAL weight! At any rate, I’ll accept that Ty had this adverse reaction, and that indeed, there is likely a small but significant number of people who have a similar reaction to free glycine, possibly due to a genetic variant in one of the glycine metabolic enzymes. I agree that sun exposure is the best way to “get” Vitamin D – but here in Alaska the sun is never close enough to enable us to produce it (according to all I have read). My mom called it “slop”. Spent the last few months quitting my two liter a day Coke habit, and now I’m working on coffee. It’s very expensive, which is why I’m cool using it ABC style (already been chewed…had to Google that one). Like who? So if you do lose weight, it’s probably not going to stay off. Did they not do it hard enough? It is killing people. I think society is intentionally designed in a way that is supposed to light a fire under our asses knowing that if we fail to earn a decent living we’ll be homeless and starving. It’s akin to trying to get ripped with 5-pound pink dumbbells, lol. i promote individualism. Also, my super health-conscious grandmother always talks about my overweight physique, asking whether I’m going to diet again or not, and this stresses me out so much. Bad science, in my view (but I do use all that data they generate to test my hypotheses, as in the Oxford EPIC study I cited here). Id say if we look to lifestyle, our ancestors that were living the hunter gatherer way included some fundamental elements we lack. Anywho see you on Matt’s next post (probably a year from now lol). Be sure to eat on time (when hungry) no restrictions, and if one day you are hungrier than the day previous, just accept it. Yes, high methionine depletes glycine, but both can be high or low. I’m sure the quote “The dose makes the poison” applies to many supplements, too. It’s important to break long fasts gently, though–something I had to learn the hard way. Ask your PCP to order or refer you to a sleep physician for a home sleep study. Awesome, thanks Kevin!! When the facial bones aren’t properly stimulated, the jaw slopes downward, elongating the face and narrowing both the dental arch and the nostrils (which makes it harder to breathe through the nose, causing mouth-breathing). Nonetheless, the end result was that I got cured from my chronic pain!! While we are at fruit back again I have one question for you Matt. “Four out of five ‘doctors’ surveyed recommend to their patients who read health blogs.”, “Nine out of ten doctors agree: has health advice for which bowing-down is warranted. Cod liver oil is bad for people in any amount. Because of this, I was hoping to ask about what your diet looks like. The body is too complex. What about chewing bones? You know it when you see it. If you would like to contact him, his website is nutritionrestored dot com — There are a lot of testimonials at his website. Eat gummy candies, Jello/gelatin desserts, marshmallows. Now, I love potatoes, but, crikey…I think I’d tire of that quickly. Buck- Basically, all the author seems to be missing is a solution to excess retinol besides avoidance (which makes for a severely limited diet). , and not just ?Whole grains? I loved biting things, including some of my friends which is why I got punished and missed Trick Or Treat ’93. And one more thing about bones that’s all the rage these days: Vitamin D. We don’t quite hibernate like some furry critters, but we are made to be less active in the winter, when the sun shines on us less, so the body’s manufacture of vitamin D (the only photosynthesis our animal bodies do) is proportional to the amount of sunlight we get.
