Natural Cures For TMJ
TMJ Targeted Exercise:
Try stretching the jaw by going through its full range of motion twice each day.
Learn to recognize the signs and triggers of stress in your life and address them accordingly.
Eat foods with Omega-3, collagen protein, and electrolytes like green vegetables and salmon.
Early morning workouts are best to start your day off right.
Natural Cures For Insomnia
Regulate Your Sleep Schedule: Get up at the same time each day- even weekends.
Don’t Try to Force Yourself to Sleep:
If you’re struggling to fall asleep, trying to force it will not help. Get up and read for a while, drink some sleepy tea and try again.
Remove Lights and Distractions:
Electronics are a no-no in the bedroom. Lights stimulate us similarly to the way sunlight does. Even your alarm clock should be in the next room.
Avoid Alcohol, Caffeine, and Nicotine Before Bed:
Any stimulating substance should be avoided four hours before going to bed.
