Dystonia & Movement Disorders, (Affected by Occipital and Cranial Issues)


Well into my 12th year battling TMJ-Playtysma Dystonia and having been passionately commuted to weekly research regarding recovering from this devastating and debilitating condition which has so diminished the quality of my life. My daily devotions to the Lord and in my prayer time, I have sought His wisdom, revelation and understanding of the extremely complicated structure of my cranial and Occipital area, (which I had never even heard of a year ago! I’m very grateful to my TMJ doctor, Dr Jeffrey Brown, who introduced me to the complicated anatomy of the jaw, spine, neck and cranial area, all of which  and neck are the severely dysfunctional areas of Cervical Dystonia sufferers.

I’m learning that besides mechanical dysfunctions  of the spine and cranial bones , other factors such as toxic bowels, liver, kidneys and  colon can also contribute to bodily sluggishness and toxicity., (including brain fog and depression). Because our water, air and the environment, are loaded with toxins and chemicals, we must have a triple-pronged detoxification regimen.  Our recovery-cleansing process will entail hard work,  dedication to exercise disciplines, etc. For some of us, (as in my case ,  having a mercury and mold sensitivity, has become ) the process may be very long and discouraging, but we will succeed through diligent  discipline and prayer.

I am just a passionate student of anatomy, medicine and natural healing, but whatever I have learned along the way, I am blessed to share for many who do not have the finances to afford  several holistic practitioners who often charge very high fees fir their services. For those of you who do not have the finances, I suggest doing extensive research first, study your anatomy, be informed about your condition, so that when you have some idea of teh area which is afflicted, you can connect with the right doctor. Mark and I have wasted thousands of doctors of MDs who we were incorrectly referred to who confirmed that they were not the specialist we needed. Had I known more about cervical, Occipital and jaw anatomy 12 years ago, I would have first gone to a TMJ specialists and saved eight thousand dollars! Study your anatomy and know your body.

After many desperate years researching the reason for the violent neck, throat and jaw spasms. This section entails various chiropractic You tube videos. I came upon an amazing and greatly-informed chiropractor, Dr Mandell who is intent upon sharing his  expertise with all who are suffering.  He really is amazing and also educates us TMJ and Dystonia sufferers  with exercises to address or misalignment. I believe Dr Mandel’s exercises will help many!  His anatomy pictures are even better than my Grey’s anatomy diagrams.

Vertigo  and Tinnitus sufferers will benefit from this exercise. The Occipital area could be affected:

This next video is a video about the SCM (Sternocleidomastoid)  muscle . Much of my distress involves this SCM and the Platysma muscle. This dysfunction can be related to poor posture and  sitting at a computer all day.

For those of you who suffer from jaw issues, here is a very informative video from my TMJ Doctor, Dr Jeffrey Bron and he is  a very compassionate and knowledgeable doctor. I highly recommend him if you have TMJ.

I met Gustav Grundsoe on the Facebook Curalistic group.  Gustav invited me to his special group of TMJ people. Gustav is  gentle, compassionate and  passionate about helping people suffering from accidents or injuries recover to  their full lives again.
