Re: If I stop grinding my teeth will my symptoms go away?
I think you have some good tips, especially about posture, avoiding sugar, the TMJ book, etc. I also think a lot of the supplements you suggested are great, but there is one thing that should be mentioned...people need to research what dose is best for them. I don't mean to be critical, but one problem I saw is that you are recommending a LOT of calcium and magnesium. Too much is NOT a good thing!!! In fact, too much can cause just as many problems as taking too little. Too much calcium can cause kidney stones and other problems. Too much magnesium can cause diarrhea and cramping...not pleasant!
Again, I'm not a doctor and don't want to tell people how much they should take...BUT i will say that the amounts recommended by the government are as follows:
Magnesium: 300 mg (now there has been controversy lately, saying that this amount is too low. But I have read numerous times that taking over 700mg is too much, even if you're trying to make up for a deficiency. I personally take 450mg in supplements right now).
Calcium: 1000-1500 mg for the average healthy adult...1500 is on the high end, and 2000 is definitely too much.
