I grind my teeth. There is a medical term for that!
TMJD defined by Wikipedia: Temporomandibular joint disorder, TMJD (in the medical literature TMD), or TMJ syndrome, is an umbrella term covering acute or chronic pain, especially in the muscles of mastication and/or inflammation of the temporomandibular joint, which connects themandible to the skull.
The cause? Stress. Crazy, huh? I think I am un-stressing and like detoxing, the bad stuff comes out. I am better, but my teeth are sore, which makes it hard to chew.
When I started this blog I promised to keep it honest and let readers know my struggles. Otherwise, how can one be authentic? I also want to note any side effects one might relate to a plant based diet. Obviously, my diet did not cause TMDJ and juicing is actually helpful in getting nutrition without chewing.
Hope real time is appreciated,
