What would happen if we solved the mandatory vaccination problem?

Has anyone thought about that distinct possibility?

The majority of us would be thrilled! However, there are those that would be unhappy, such as:

  • non-profits that promote vaccine exemptions
  • attorneys that get paid for vaccine exemption paperwork
  • non-profits that lobby for religious or philosophical exemptions
  • legislators that get money for their re-election campaigns from vaccine manufacturers
  • public health employees who get paid to set up vaccine clinics and review charts for vaccine compliance
All of these folks would be have to make changes in their source of income. In fact one of the significant problems that all non-profits have is that if they succeed in solving the problem, they are no longer needed. This of course also explains why the American Cancer Society isn’t eager to find a cure for cancer.
While many of us would be sympathetic with their plight, we are not remotely considering leaving the current status quo regarding mandatory vaccinations unchallenged just so a few can keep their jobs.

The reality is that our current corporate government has no authority to make anyone take a vaccination. It is all done by the unlawful enforcement of unconscionable contracts.

For me, the last straw was this God awful Refusal to Vaccinate entrapment form!! Hopefully parents won’t sign it.

Tomorrow night on In Defense of Humanity [8 PM ET, 7 PM CT, 6 PM ET, 5 PM PT] we will be talking about our corporate government and the fact that “They have no force of law. They are coming from a false premise legally.”  [Quote of Alfred Webre, international lawyer and judge.]

How Do You Know When You Need More Iodine?

Here is the short list:

  • cold feet and hands, especially in the evening
  • lackluster hair, thinning, and brittle or dry
  • thinning eyebrows, especially the outer third
  • dry skin, especially on heels (cracking and splitting)
  • weight gain, or inability to lose weight even on starvation diet
  • chronic fatigue, low energy
  • sweet cravings, bread or starch or dessert cravings

The main function of Iodine is to balance your endocrine (hormone regulating) system -especially your thyroid gland – resulting in a greater ability to manage your emotional states. This is more obvious in women because of different hormonal dynamics.

Iodine’s secondary function is to regulate reproductive organs:

ovaries and breasts in women… prostate in men.

It seems like so many of my middle-aged girlfriends have a sluggish thyroid and they feel so very tired and easily gain weight – more so than what’s “normal” for middle-age.

Most see their doctor and get their thyroid tested, and everything comes back “normal, within range”. The problem is with the test! It does not measure results …

Iodine Deficiency is Common and Can Be Terribly Harmful!

You Do Not Get Enough Iodine…

Iodine is a trace mineral that is essential for normal growth and development. Seventy to 80% of iodine is found in the thyroid gland – in your neck. The rest is distributed throughout your body, particularly in ovaries (women), muscles, and blood.

Your thyroid gland is the only organ that stores significant quantities of iodine.

Your body produces NO iodine, so you must supplement (unless you are eating a lot of sea weed, and use more sea weed as compost on your vegetable garden).

In America, you cannot get enough iodine from your diet. It used to be added to bread but not anymore.  It’s added to salt, but the amount has been lowered over the years.

We know from clinical studies that few people have anywhere near enough iodine in their body for their thyroid to function optimally.

Three disturbing trends initiated in the 20th century made this collective deficiency inevitable:

1. The introduction of chlorine use in drinking water, in pools, and as a ubiquitous cleaning agent (Clorox, Lysol). Iodine is displaced or deactivated by chlorine, bromine and fluoride.

2.  Alteration of the Western diet that reduces natural food sources of iodine (sea weed, dulse, etc.)

3. Farming practices designed to increase crop yield, leading to reduced iodine content in many foods.

Naturally occurring iodine is found in kelp, dulse, nori, hijiki, wakame, arame, kombu and seafood.

Iodine Supplementation for Thyroid Health is Easy


Non-toxic, Highly Absorbable and Effective

Help Balance Emotions

Regulate Reproductive Organs

This is nascent iodine, or detoxified atomic iodine, made to the specification introduced by Edgar Cayce.

Unlike the common Lugol’s solution of molecular iodine and potassium iodide, our atomic iodine is not toxic even at high dose.

Protects against damage from radiation, stress and aging.

Benefits of Iodine Supplementation with Thyrodine

Better energy management, endurance

Reduced joint and muscle pains

Improved elasticity of muscles and tendons

Faster healing and repair from injuries

More resilient immune system

Clearer thinking, less brain fog

More insulin sensitivity, better blood glucose management

Improved sweating mechanism for detoxification

Better elimination (no more constipation)

Decreased menstrual problems (PMS, mood swings)

Reduced body odors (vaginal, foot, underarm, etc.)

Lower chance of miscarriage, higher baby birth weights

Effective on ringworm and toenail fungus

Warmer hands and feet (thermo-regulation)

Adequate iodine intake will also result in much-improved muscular coordination, flexibility and strength, plus improved vision as the eye muscles lose their unwanted calcium that causes hardening and stiffness.

Iodine supplementation can also induce long term remission of auto-immune problems including Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Fatigue, Vitiligo, Myalgia, Migraine.

Protection from Radioactive Fallout

Created when a nuclear plant is damaged or a nuclear weapon detonates, radioactive dust and/or ash can be very damaging to your thyroid gland.

Taking iodine before – and even just after – a nuclear event, keeps you from absorbing the fallout into your thyroid.

If you’re Iodine Deficient, here’s what may happen…


That makes you feel very sluggish and gain weight easily.

Fibrocystic Breast Disease

Painful breasts with nodules and cysts that often hurt more prior to menstruating.

93% of American women have Fibrocystic Breast Disease, and the longer the deficiency persists, the higher the risk of breast cancer.

Polycystic Ovarian Disease

Iodine is needed in the ovaries, and Russian studies showed a relationship between iodine deficiency and the presence of cysts in the ovaries. The greater the iodine deficiency, the more ovarian cysts a woman produces.

Prostate Problems for Men

Long term iodine deficiency can manifest as prostate problems – either enlargement or cancer or both.

Dry Eyes, Mouth and Skin

Iodine is concentrated in the lacrymal glands of the eye, and submandibular glands of the mouth, and a lack of it can cause dryness. 20% of all your iodine is stored in your sweat glands, and a lack of iodine can manifest as dry skin, and a decreased ability to sweat.


Really low iodine levels in the thyroid end up as a Goiter – enlargement of the thyroid.


Extended iodine deficiency contributes heavily to our recent epidemic cancers of breasts, ovaries and prostates.  Areas of the world where iodine deficiency is high (Switzerland, parts of Asia and Africa) have high incidence of thyroid cancer.

Iodine can also be concentrated in stomach tissue, and a deficiency there manifests as achlorhydria (lack of digestive acid production).  Prolonged deficiency causes a much higher incidence of stomach cancer.

Impaired Physical and Mental Development

In infants and children, hypothyroidism can impair physical and mental development.

[Vaccination-Liberation] Recent news – update

Wanted to share a couple things from Monday that I have finally reviewed and wanted to share –

1) Transcripts of an interview with Ken McLeod and Meryl Dorey regarding the efforts among pharma patsies to block Dr. Tenpenny from entering Australia.
After they blocked World War 2 historian David Irving from speaking there several years ago, a dangerous precedent was set. They should have spoken out THEN.


2) The case of Cassandra C. in Connecticutt who was removed from her mother’s loving care into state custody so they could force her into taking chemotherapy.

These medical Kidnaps are happening in every county across the nation as reported on MedicalKidnap.com This is why people need to be prepared ahead of time.
AL has put together a Legal Notice that would be good to have by the door along with a government employee questionnaire should you have children in the home.

Legal Notice – CPS.pdf

And last, AL and I will be discussing our Corporate government – city,counties, state and the mother corporation of our nation – USA, INC. - and why we must start taking the necessary steps to expose the fraud and restore our original Constitution. See

Knowledge is Power (The Most Powerful Natural Antibiotic Ever)

The flu is ravaging across the US right now. I have several family members that have been down with this for over a week. So in doing my little part to “raise consciousness” here is a practical piece…….Rather than getting your flu shot and taking anti-biotics why not try the concoction below. I know personally all the ingredients in this are super food and I will be making this for myself soon.


Blessings, Daren

This is The Most Powerful Natural Antibiotic Ever – Kills Any Infections in The Body

The basic formula of this powerful tonic dates back to medieval Europe, that is, from the era when people suffered from all sorts of diseases and epidemics.

This master cleansing tonic is actually an antibiotic that kills gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. It has also a powerful antiviral and antifungal formula, increases blood circulation and lymph flow in all parts of the body. This plant-based remedy is the best choice for the fight against candida.

This tonic has helped many people to cure many viral, bacterial, parasitic and fungal diseases and even plague! Its power should most certainly not be underestimated.

It can cure many chronic conditions and diseases. Encourages blood circulation, and purifies blood. This formula has helped millions of people throughout the centuries to fight the most deadliest diseases. The secret is in the powerful combination of high-quality natural and fresh ingredients!

To sum up, this tonic is effective in the treatment of all diseases, successfully strengthens the immune system, acts as an antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and antiparasitic medicine. Assists in the most severe infections.

Master tonic – Recipe

You may want to wear gloves during the preparation, especially when handling hot peppers, because it is difficult to get the tingling off your hands! Be careful, its smell is very strong, and it may stimulate the sinuses instantly.


* 24 oz /700 ml apple cider vinegar (always use organic)
* ¼ cup finely chopped garlic
* ¼ cup finely chopped onion
* 2 fresh peppers, the hottest you can find (be careful with the cleaning – wear gloves!!!)
* ¼ cup grated ginger
* 2 tbsp grated horseradish
* 2 tbsp turmeric powder or 2 pieces of turmeric root


1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, except for the vinegar.
2. Transfer the mixture to a Mason jar.
3. Pour in some apple cider vinegar and fill it to the top. It is best if 2/3 of the jar consist of dry ingredients, and fill in the rest with vinegar.
4. Close well and shake.
5. Keep the jar in a cool and dry place for 2 weeks. Shake well several times a day.
6. After 14 days, squeeze well and strain the liquid through a plastic strain. For better results put a gauze over it. Squeeze well so the whole juice comes out.
7. Use the rest of the dry mixture when cooking.

Your master tonic is ready for use. You do not need to keep the tonic in your fridge. It will last for long.

Extra Tip: You can also use it in the kitchen – mix it with some olive oil and use it as a salad dressing or in your stews.


1. Caution: The flavor is very strong and hot!
2. Extra Tip: Eat a slice of orange, lemon or lime after you take the tonic to ease the burning sensation and heat.
3. Gargle and swallow.
4. Do not dilute it in water as it will reduce the effect.
5. Take 1 tablespoon every day to strengthen the immune system and fight cold.
6. Increase the amount every day until you reach a dose of 1 small glass per day (the size of a liquor glass).
7. If you struggle against more serious disease or infection, take 1 tablespoon of the tonic 5-6 times a day.
8. It is safe for pregnant women and children (use small doses!) because the ingredients are all-natural and contain no toxins.

Health benefits

Garlic is a strong antibiotic with a wide range of health benefits. Unlike chemical antibiotics that kill millions of friendly bacteria your body needs, its only goal is bacteria and microorganisms. Garlic also encourages and increases the level of healthy bacteria. It is a powerful antifungal agent and destroys any antigen, pathogen, and harmful disease-causing microorganisms.

Onion is garlic’s closest relative and it has a similar but milder action. Together they create a strong fighting duo.

Horseradish is a powerful herb, efficient for sinuses and lungs. It opens sinus channels and increases circulation, where common colds and flu usually begin, as most doctors would agree.

Ginger has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and it is a strong circulation stimulant.

Chili peppers are the most powerful circulation stimulators. They just send their antibiotic properties to fight the disease where it is mostly needed.

Turmeric is the most perfect spice, cleanses infections and reduces inflammation. Blocks the development of cancer, and prevents dementia. It is especially useful for those who struggle with joint pain.

Apple cider vinegar – there must be something very healthy in the use of apple cider vinegar as the father of medicine, Hippocrates, used vinegar around 400 BC because of its healthy properties. It is said that he used only two remedies: honey and apple cider vinegar.

Apple cider vinegar is made from fresh and ripe apples which are later fermented and go through rigorous process to give the final product. Apple cider vinegar contains pectin, a fiber that reduces bad cholesterol and regulates blood pressure.

Health experts agree that people need more calcium as they get old. Vinegar helps the extraction of calcium from foods it is mixed with, which helps in the process of maintaining bone strength. Potassium deficiency causes a variety of problems including hair loss, brittle nails and teeth, sinusitis, and runny nose.

Apple cider vinegar is rich in potassium. Studies have shown that potassium deficiency results in slow growth. All of these problems can be avoided if you use apple cider vinegar regularly. Potassium also removes toxic wastes from the body.

Beta-carotene prevents damage caused by free radicals, maintains skin firm and young. Apple cider vinegar is good for those who want to lose weight.

It breaks up fat which supports a natural weight loss process. Apple cider vinegar contains malic acid, efficient in the fight against fungal and bacterial infections. This acid dissolves uric acid deposits that form around the joints, and thus alleviates joint pain. Dissolved uric acid is later eliminated from the body.

It is believed that apple cider vinegar is useful in treating conditions like constipation, headaches, arthritis, weak bones, indigestion, high cholesterol, diarrhea, eczema, sore eyes, chronic fatigue, mild food poisoning, hair loss, high blood pressure, obesity, and many other health problems.

The master tonic is the best combination to fight each of these conditions. Protect your health using natural antibiotics!

Right to Grow

Omar has just created the Right to Grow website, whose effort is to try to get retraction orthodontics outlawed so that this never happens to another child (sleep apnea, facial disfigurement, among a litany of other health problems)


From their website….

Who We Are
We are a community of people seeking change within the orthodontic industry. Presently and in the face of alarming research calling for the contrary, the industry continues to engage in harmful practices that are designed to stunt the normal growth of the jaws, thereby compromising the growth of the airway and even damaging the face. We operate with the following philosophy:
In the ensuring that a child develops to his or her full potential without a compromised airway or face,
* Natural forward growth of the face should never be held back;
* Development of Dental Arches should never be restricted;
* Informed Consent explaining the known and published risks of retraction and extraction based orthodontic treatment must be provided to all patients, including the risks of facial elongation, flattening of the cranial base, dishing-in of the face, narrowing of the jaws, reduction of airway volume and development of sleep apnea.

What You Can do About A Skin Problem

Clear Skin – and not Blemishes, Red Spots and Rashes

We all do this: we judge each other by the appearance out our skin. I don’t know of a worse self-confidence downer than a skin problem that is just “in your face”.

Everyone from young to old, will sometimes get a pimple, a cold sore or some unexplained rash.  Happens to most everyone at some point. And then there are the things that just do not go away.

It does not matter if your issue is chronic or just a one-time emergency, you will want to know about this product. It helps fix skin problems like you wouldn’t believe.

The Power of Science in Perfect Harmony with Nature

First thing to know is that bath products and cosmetics are not regulated the same way as nutritional supplements. They ignore the fact that your skin is permeable – it’s actually your body’s largest organ!

So whatever you put on your skin does – in fact – gets absorbed right into your body.

Unlike common preserving agents paraben and formaldehyde this patent-pending protection system features a nano-structured antimicrobial composite that eliminates bacteria, yeast and molds.

That’s special on its own, but there’s more.

1. Effective skin repair without poisons.

2. Transdermal delivery of important minerals.

3. And high levels of the active ingredients – not just the minimal amount to get them on the label, but enough to make a significant difference.

It was designed by a very talented materials scientist. Take a look the ingredients he chose,

and if you’d like to read more about them, just click here.

Coenzyme Q10 (Co-Q10), Ubiquinone

DMAE, 2-DiMethylAmino Ethanol


Vitamin E

MSM, Methylsulfonylmethane


Organic Grape Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera

Organic Jojoba Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis

Argan Oil, Argania Spinosa

Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Sodium Hyaluronate

Sea Buckthorn Oil, Hippophae Rhamnoides

Besides Clear Gel, the instant repair agent, Clear Skincareoffers Day and Night Creams, and Wrinkle Erasing Lift.

All Natural, Healthy and Safe

Clear Skincare is made by a small Canadian company lead by a materials scientist who takes a very untypical approach.

The products are checked and approved by Health Canada. They are safe and effective for their intended purpose: skin repair and restoration of healthy function.

Their patent-pending, paraben and formaldehyde-free preservation system features a nano-structured antimicrobial blend of comprehensively acknowledged components that provide broad spectrum activity on bacteria, yeast and molds.

Each and Every Clear Skincare Product is…
Designed to help reduce the signs of aging and keep you looking youthful both inside and out.

Uses a beneficial nano-particle delivery system that delivers valuable botanical hydrating ingredients as well as potent antioxidants and free radical scavengers.

Cutting edge technology with a special proprietary formulation allowing them to penetrate the outer skin layer (dermis) and enter lower skin layers (epidermis & subcutaneous).

Contains a specially formulated ionic silver generator: very small particles of silver specially assembled into a chain that mimics collagen to support your skin. And a special targeting system which ignores healthy cells and targets only unhealthy substances for attack (bacteria, viruses, fungi and other infectious agents).

Regular Use is Important

Clear Skincare products are best used in a daily and nightly treatment program for the face and body.  They complement one another to ensure maximum efficacy.

By implementing a regular treatment program…

Moisture levels will increase

Wrinkle depth will be visibly reduced

Impurities will be removed

Skin texture becomes considerably firmer, smoother, clear and more supple.

All this results in a healthy, fresh and clear complexion – at any age.

Take a quick read at what people are saying about Clear Ultra Gel…
“I am blown away by how well the Clear Ultra Gel worked on the eczema on my hand. I had open weepy blisters and cracks, and where my fingers meet up with my hand was bright red, sore and itchy. Within 2 days I was already noticing a difference. The healing has been amazing, the redness is almost gone, and my nail beds are back to normal again. I’ve never had any product work as well as this, and I’ve tried a lot of them! Thank you so much, I will promote this to anyone I know that needs it.” ~ Vera Darius Coquitlam, BC

“My mom brought home a bottle of your Clear Ultra Gel yesterday because my shins were really badly sunburnt and they looked nasty. I was 100% skeptical about it (because I’ve been fooled by other products before). I put it on last night, and when I woke up this morning, my legs looked almost normal. It was a huge difference!”

~ Krisanna Nicole Mazur”

“After the optometrist and ophthalmologist could only advise me to spread Vaseline-like substances around my problem eyes, I discovered Clear Ultra Gel. It has worked successfully for nearly a year, and I also use the Clear Ultra Firming lotion. I am a believer in this product and would like my grandchildren to benefit from it also as they go through the acne stage. Thank you.” ~ Carol Setterington, London ON

“My daughter has started to use Clear Ultra Gel on her psoriasis and it is amazing. She has suffered for 7 years and has had many specialists appointments but without success.” ~ Lori Williamson Walkerton, ON

[Vaccination-Liberation] “Educate BEFORE You Vaccinate” presentation will begin this event in St. Louis!

All Disease Begins at the Cellular Level
& All Healing Also Begins There

Gary Tunsky, C.N.C.

Holiday Inn South County
6921 So. Lindbergh Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63125
(314) 892-3600
(For Hotel Room Rates, see Note at the End of this Article)

Gary Tunsky, CNC, is a brilliant, independent research scientist, an author, a cellular disease specialist applying naturopathic healing arts, including essential oils, and a fascinating teacher who will be speaking on the cause and reversal of all diseases. A world authority on the importance of maintaining an alkaline body pH for health and healing, he is author of the book, “The Battle for Health is Over pH.”

An expert on physical fitness, he was “MR. WESTERN U.S.A.” in 1981. During the 1980’s Tunsky practiced in his own clinic in Canoga Park, California, nd developed a reputation for advising Professional Body Builders who went on to win many competitions. His studies, research, and work with many rofessionals over the years is the equivalent of a Triple PhD in Endocrinology.

You will come away inspired, enlightened, and educated in ways you never expected and in ways that will benefit you and your family for the rest of your life. Among other therapies, Tunsky uses and recommends Young Living Essential Oils. To understand how all diseases begin and end at the cellular level, is to understand their cause and their resolution. Tunsky is especially skilled in evaluation and treatment protocols for all forms of cancer.

Gary Tunsky employs the most advanced scanning technology in the world to measure and evaluate your state of health to provide a basis for choosing a protocol for cleansing, healing, and health maintenance for a long life. His technology is more advanced than X-rays, Ultrasound, CAT Scanning, MRIs, and PET while being painless, harmless, fast, immediate, and non-invasive.

Invisible to the human eye is your electromagnetic field (EMF). Everyone has an EMF. It is the underlying template and blueprint for the human body. It was there at conception and provided the guide for embryonic cells to divide, assemble, and maintain themselves as the unique body form that you have today. It is the energy and life field (L-field) through which physical healing is accomplished. Medical Doctors know about this field, but use it only for evaluating heart (EKG) and brain (EEG) conditions. They don’t know how to obtain a complete body evaluation from the EMF, nor do they know how to directly address and employ the EMF to bring healing into the physical body.

What is not generally known to the public, and to the professional community as well, is that this field contains your complete history, from the time you were conceived to the present. It also contains information on conditions that are not yet physically manifest, but which will become a bodily illness if not corrected at the level of your EM Field. In other words, if you are about to manifest diabetes, arthritis, heart problems, cancer, a stroke, Alzheimer’s, or any other physical malady, it will show up in your EMF before it appears in your body. Such information enables one to head off a serious illness before it occurs.

These technologies, referred to as “ESC and SCIO Body Scans,” display as 3D modeling. They also detect emotional issues that can lead to, and manifest, as physical sickness. It behooves everyone to seek out a practitioner with this training and technology and receive such scans to see where they are, where they have been, and where they are headed–emotionally, psychologically, and physically. Its accuracy and comprehensiveness are amazing and is based on sound science, founded in the principles of electronic voltage impedance and quantum physics. It has only recently become available. The theory and mathematical basis for ESC and SCIO have been known for ten years or so, but the high-speed computers necessary to process the data were not available until 2 or 3 years ago.

The actual scans take only a few minutes. They are recorded on the most up-to-date high speed computers, able to process data at speeds in the range of nano-nano seconds (billion-billionths of a second). Besides the output of a 30-40 page personal SCIO print-out, the results of the ESC Scan are also displayed visually on a large screen, where 3D X-ray views of the body, and its internal structures and organs, are seen showing exactly where
problems exist, have existed, and may exist in the future.

Come hear Gary Tunsky speak on Sunday Afternoon, 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm, January 18, 2015, at the Holiday Inn South County, 6921 S. Lindbergh Blvd, St. Louis, MO. (314) 892-3600. The program title is “What in the Cell is going On.” Topics included in his presentation will be the “Root Causes of All Diseases-Body, Mind and Soul,” and “The Pillars of Cellular Health.” He will actually display a scan on a screen for everyone to see how the ESC/SCIO
Assessment Technologies work.

Tunsky will remain in St. Louis for as long as needed, following the program, for anyone who would like to have Body Scans and Evaluations for themselves. It takes about three hours for the complete evaluation and there is a fee for the scans and consultation.

If you want to receive a whole body scan, and could be available before Gary’s January 18 presentation, you may contact Gary’s wife, Renee at (954)347-6897, (800) 939-8227 or at VIC@vacinfo.org to set up a time and place.
Gary’s website is: www.phcelltox.com

Copies of Tunsky’s Book and CDs will be available for sale at the seminar. The issue of Vaccinations, their hazards, and how to avoid them will also be addressed.

This is a rare opportunity to enrich your life like never before. Don’t Miss It. The Program is Free. Space is limited. Come early and bring a friend. Tunsky will remain in the St. Louis Area for as many days as needed.
Appointments for a scan and consultation with Gary Tunsky may be made in St. Louis at the seminar, and can be scheduled to take place during the days following January 18.

HOTEL RATES: If you need a hotel room, special rates at the Holiday Inn South County for this event are $114.99 for a King Room and $119.99 for a Double Queen. To get these prices, mention that you are attending the Seminar, January 18, where Young Living Distributor, Gary Tunsky, is speaking on What in the Cell is Going On?“.

003 Frequently Asked Questions About TMJ

TMJ Restoration
Discover Everything They Don’t Want You To Know!
Frequently Asked Questions About TMJ
214-407-7352 office or 720-297-3104 cell


Thanks for inquiring about our Whole New Way to Treat TMJ which has been curing jaw pain since August of 2004. This whole TMJ problem is a mechanical problem that can be fixed without drugs or surgery with 24 to 48 hours of treatment spaced over 6 months. Half of the people begin to feel significant improvement after the first 8 hours of treatment. The other half take longer. It is a process. I have been permanently curing jaw pain using this method since August of 2004.

The average case of TMJ dysfunction can be healed in 24 to 48 hours of therapy. I am NOT saying that this is an overnight cure. I can do 8 hours of therapy in 4 days for most people. Then I have to give the patient’s body a chance to catch up to the changes that I have set in motion. It takes several weeks before the patient is ready for the next series of 8 treatments. Each therapy session lasts about an hour. Most people get 90% relief or more by the time that we “unlock” the 6 skull plates and then require a small “tune-up” once per year.

TMJ is not new and there is a treatment that works to give long term relief to even the worst cases. The problem is that 99% of the dentists are only using what they have been taught in school and are not up to date on the new research of what is working.

The typical dental TMJ treatment of splints, braces, and surgery lasts 4 to 6 years and only helps 20% of the patients to become pain free. Most TMJ patients with jaw pain, inability to open mouth wide, and anterior dislocation of the disc are caused by poor dental work and past injuries. They don’t become pain free 80% of the time because these treatments do not address the real problem which is collapse of the roof of the mouth caused by tension and twisting of the Dural Tube. This collapse is accompanied by misalignment of the temporal bone forcing the disc anteriorly.

My research over the last 17 years has revealed that 98% or more of all TMJ are caused by braces, sloppy crowns, past injuries, inflammation, and hormone imbalances. Most case are fixable within 6 months. These TMJ symptoms are caused by tension and  twisting of the “Dural tube” and result in a  Collapse of the Palatine suture and Facial bones.

The Collapse of the Palatine/Sphenoid/ facial bones has 2 major root cause events.
1. Braces and sloppy dental crowns which are either too high, too low, or lean in toward the tongue too much.
2. Physical trauma to the head. These past injuries create inflammation and result in scar tissue.

1. Braces create tension and twisting in the bones of the skull. Sloppy dental crowns which lean in and touch the tongue cause a neurological reflex of certain cranial nerves that control the tongue and throat. This diminishes your ability to breathe well and your head will shift anteriorly so that it is in front of your shoulders instead of being directly above your shoulders.
2. Physical trauma and Inflammation causes scar tissue and skull compression which results in loss of the horizontal and vertical dimensions of the mouth. This ends up causing compression and twisting of the “Sphenoid Bone” which connects the left and right temporal bones. Subluxation Complexes of the Skull are addressed using cranial adjustments called “Central Nervous System Restoration”. {Also known as TMJ Restoration}.

The TMJ joint is made up of two bones, the temporal bone and the lower jaw bone and the disc which is between those bones.

The disc is attached to the skull. Specifically, it is attached to the temporal bone.

The disc is not attached to the lower jaw (mandible).

Dentists think that the TMJ condition is caused by muscle spasms and poor occlusion. They think that the TMJ condition is caused by tight jaw muscles which are causing a bad bite (poor occlusion). They focus on the muscle spasms connected to the lower jaw (mandible); while they ignore the temporal bone because they were not taught that the temporal bones can and do move.

Splints, braces, physical therapy, medications, and surgery do not get to the root of the problem.

Dentists and oral surgeons have a 20%-25% success rate for TMJ treatment over 4 years.

TMJ Specialists do an exam and then make a model of your jaw  and have the lab make a splint which you wear for about 2 years. This has about a 20% success rate.

Neuromuscular TMJ Specialists do the same thing except that they use electrical stimulation to fatigue the chewing muscles before  making the splint.

Then, they make a splint with the muscles completely relaxed. This technique gets about a 25% success rate over 2 years.

However, the jaw muscles are just “accommodating” to a shortened position resulting from loss of the vertical and horizontal changes of the head. Correcting the compression of the sphenoid bones which connects the left and right temporal bone gets rid of the tight jaw muscles almost every time.

Skull compression is caused by birth trauma, braces, past injuries, sloppy crowns, infection, inflammation, scarring, and chronic stress. This ends up causing compression and twisting of the “Sphenoid Bone” which then causes rotation of the “Temporal Bones”. It also changes blood flow to the pituitary gland which controls hormone imbalance, allergies, adrenal fatigue, and brain inflammation.

My “TMJ Restoration®” corrects the TMJ pain in 6 months for most people and the treatment tends to be permanent. Patients who wore braces for more than a year may take slightly longer to “unwind”. It is important to get a “check up” once per year after the original unlocking of your skull so that stress does not pull and twist things up again.

What I normally find is that all 6 skull plates are compressed and the sutures are twisted {“Dural Meningeal Torque”}.

The mechanical issues dealing with the skull need to be addressed first.

This allows the “sphenoid bone” to be leveled up as much as possible and allows the temporal bone to be rotated back into its original correct anatomical position.

The “TMJ Restoration®” will unlock the skull plates and restore the slight flexion and motion that is supposed to occur in your sutures. As I examine your skull, I will be able to see where your skull is locked up and which head positions cause your brain to feel unstable.

I do NOT do surgery.  I am not a surgeon. I am a chiropractor with special training in finding and correcting Subluxation Complexes in the head. (“Advanced Cranial Manipulation”). I have taken an old Osteopathic technique that has been in use since 1928 called BNS (Bilateral Nasal Specific). That technique was changed and improved about 1985 and became known as NCR (NeuroCranial Restructuring®). In 2004, through prayer, research, and post graduate courses in Neurology; I modified the therapy into what is now called Central Nervous System Restoration® . {CNSR}

I personally had TMJ so bad for several years that I could only chew on my right side and I had to mash up my food like baby food; and NOW my TMJ IS Gone and has been gone for 10 years!

Dentists and oral surgeons have a 10%-25% success rate over 4-6 years. I have an 90% success rate in 6 months.

Splints, braces, physical therapy, medications, and surgery do not get to the root of the problem. One of my patients even had 14 unsuccessful jaw surgeries before coming to me. Dentists are ignoring the “Temporal” portion of the “TMJ”.

My clinical experience indicates that the bad bite is just another symptom.

I believe that the root cause is that the “temporal bone and sphenoid bones” are compressed and rotated out of their normal position.

Compression of the skull plates causes dehydration of the midline of your brain which is the “core” of your brain.

It controls the “core” muscles of your body. Posture distortions result from this imbalance in flexor muscles versus extensor muscles.

When the core of your brain is dehydrated; then this is affecting the core of your body as well as weakening the extensor muscles of your neck and back. The flexor muscles on the front half of your body are overpowering the extensors on the back half of your body. This causes the head to shift forward and the center of balance shifts; then the stress moves to the upper back and neck.

Your neck muscles and upper back muscles are just trying very hard to support your head which is off balance.

I am taking a very mechanical approach to correct this whole problem and it works to cure the problem, usually within 6 months. Occasionally, it takes 12 or more months for severe cases. This occurs in patients who wore orthodontic braces for over 2 years and in people who have had lots of inflammation that has turned into scar tissue.

Of course, when your muscles are out of balance; then the muscles of your neck have to work very hard to support a skull that is out of balance and can cause CHRONIC MUSCLE SPASMS in your neck and shoulders.

I see patients ALL OF THE TIME who have had braces which created other problems such as seizures and headaches. Braces are OK if the orthodontist understands that the braces also move the skull plates. CNSR needs to be done at the same time as the braces.

When the skull plates are loosened up so that they move freely using  “TMJ Restoration®”; then the orthodontist can get the movement that he wants in about half the time or he can get more movement than he originally thought possible.

The compressed sphenoid and temporal bones also affect the middle and inner ear. This can cause ear pain to develop.

Removing the pressure off of the sphenoid and temporal bones will allow the temporal bones, jaw bone (mandible) and the disk in the TMJ joint to rotate back to their original position.

Using this approach, I have better than 90% success rate over 6-12 months.

The compressed Temporal and Sphenoid bones cause the Temporal Lobe of the Brain to become Dehydrated and cause Areas of High and Low Pressure within the Cerebro Spinal Fluid which in turn causes poor blood flow throughout the brain. This poor blood flow causes the brain to dehydrate and your brain works slower. This makes it harder to think and process information at a fast rate.

The spinal fluid compresses the blood vessels causing loss of blood flow to the muscles of the jaw and face.

About 1/2 of my patients are from out of state and out of the country. They come to see me for 4 days at a time.

The fastest way to get long term relief from your TMJ and restore normal brain chemistry is a therapy called “TMJ Restoration®”. { Also called Central Nervous System Restoration®.}

The first day, I would examine your skull not with x-rays, CAT Scans, and MRIs, but with my hands and also with specific Neurologic Reflex tests (Proprioceptive Reflexes) that are designed to show me how fast your brain is reacting to gravity and how quickly the left side of your brain is talking to the right side of your brain.

The first portion of the examination will reveal how many and which of your six sutures and skull plates are locked up in the wrong position and will give me an estimate of how many series that you need. These tests tell me which areas of YOUR brain are dryer than they should be and are causing pressure to build up inside the spinal fluid and are causing YOUR TMJ.

The six points are:

1. Bridge of your nose where someone’s glasses would sit.
2. Under your nose where your two front teeth come together.
3. Top of your head where the soft spot would be on a baby.
4. Back of the head where the second soft spot would be.
5. Behind the left ear where the temporal bone meets the occipital bone.
6. Behind the right ear where the temporal bone meets the occipital bone.

The second portion of the examination will test for 13 different treatment patterns on each of the 6 skull plates that could be unstable.

Each unstable treatment pattern requires 1 treatment to correct the unstable pattern.

There are 78 individual patterns that must be checked and corrected.

This portion of the exam gives us a better indication of how many individual treatments that will be required in order to correct your problem.

Your TMJ situation is unique and the initial exam will reveal how many series of treatments that you will personally need.

This examination shows me which head positions are causing the brain to feel unstable and are causing pressure to build up inside the spinal fluid and causing Your TMJ.

The treatments are typically done in groups of four treatments which are referred to as one series.

The examination will show how many treatments are required to correct each of the six skull plates.

The skull unlocks from front to back and from left to right.

We correct the skull plates one at a time.

This gives us BETTER RESULTS with less symptoms in between series.

This examination allows me to zero in on YOUR PROBLEM AREAS and AVOID OVER TREATMENT therefore Getting Quicker Results and Saving You Money.

This is all done by physical examination of the head. (No costly MRI or Cat Scan or X-rays)

The total cost of treatment will vary according to the number of skull plates that are locked up and how many of the 78 treatment patterns that show to be “unstable”.

The average length of time needed for 8 out of 10 patients is about 24 -36 individual treatments or 6-9 series of four day treatments. 2 out of 10 patients need up to 48 individual treatments.

After I examine your skull to find out how many of the skull plates are compressed, then we begin treatment.

First I do the deep muscle work around the spine and work  the belly of the muscles to break up lactic acid, then the light muscle work from Australia to balance the muscles on both sides of the spine, then the massage of the skull plates along the sutures, then I remove pressure on the brain stem, and finally I place a little instrument with a balloon in your nose and put air into it for about 2 seconds. The air in the balloon will move the bones (incrementally) into their correct position. Sometimes, I will do the balloon portion of the treatment first.

This is done every day, for each treatment, to unlock each of the 78 patterns that were unstable on the examination.

Half of the people that I work with say that the balloon portion of the treatment feels like they jumped into the pool and got water up their nose (uncomfortable but not a big deal). The other half  say that it feels like very intense pressure for 2 seconds. They even hear the cartilage and small bones in the nose move and say that is sounds like Velcro being pulled apart (very uncomfortable but tolerable because it is only for 2 seconds).

I tell patients that They Will Not “LIKE” The Treatment But That They Will “LOVE” The Results.

The exam is $250.00 A series of 4 treatments is $1,000.00. Two series is 8 treatments and is $2,000.00 That includes the all of the “Soft Tissue Work”.

Correcting your Muscle Spasms and TMJ is a PROCESS…not an overnight cure as I’m sure that you are aware.

There is NO NEED for you to be in such pain.

Most of my patients begin to see results and begin to feel better  by the time that we get 2 skull plates unlocked.

That usually takes 8 treatments (two series) on the average. This can be accomplished in the first four days for most people.

On the AVERAGE, each series of treatments is four days and the treatments are “normally” scheduled about a month apart.

Each patient is unique and in certain circumstances the treatments should be done closer together such as in the beginning to “jumpstart” you to get relief quicker.

In the beginning, the visits lasts about 60 minutes. After the first series or two, the treatments last about 30-45 minutes.

We usually wait four weeks before doing more therapy in order to allow the spinal fluid to catch up with what I am doing to unlock the skull plates.

Getting in with about a two week notice is USUALLY no problem but some weeks are booked more solid than others. We usually have about 6 TMJ patients per week that we work with.

During the last sixteen years, I have combined Five Major and 2 minor  “non-surgical” therapies that are reducing the TMJ by 90% for 90% of the patients within six months.

Approximately 10% of the patients require 12 months of therapy because of extenuating circumstances such as “scarring and dehydration” within the Brain and Spinal Cord from extensive dental work or braces, severe viral infections in the past, or severe tailbone injuries.

About “1 out of 50″ people have a slight nosebleed. They blow their nose 2-3 times and it stops. About “1 out of 300″ will have more of a nose bleed and we then have to use smaller balloons and “baby” them a bit. [This may extend the average length of treatment to longer than six months as we allow the blood vessels time to rehydrate.]

For some people (1 out of 50), Emotional trauma from past experiences may occasionally surface during the treatment. This is usually short lived and you MAY feel more emotional during the week of treatment. About “1 out of 50″ people have old memories that contain old emotional issues that were suppressed.

If you are one of these people who has been a “victim of abuse” then your subconscious will process this old emotional trauma usually in one week or less. You may have a good cry during a day or two while your brain processes the old emotional baggage; then you will feel much lighter.

As I unlock the skull bones and remove the pressure on the brain, the circulation to the brain is increased and your memory will improve.

For the majority of people we are able to restore the proper flow of the spinal fluid and get rid of the TMJ in six months.

After this, you will need a “tune up” at the changing of the seasons the first year and then yearly thereafter.

I personally need a 2 day tune up about once per year.

There are no other doctors in the world who are using the combination of techniques that I use.

I have found that if I combine 5 major and 2 minor TMJ techniques that I get faster and longer lasting results.

So far I am the only doctor who has focused on TMJ who is using these Seven techniques. They work together very well and the results last.
1. Nimmo Technique-deep muscle work along the spine developed by Dr. Ray Nimmo, a chiropractor, which breaks up lactic acid in the muscles and increases blood flow and oxygen thereby helping the muscles to relax.
2. Bowen (Neuro Structural Integration Technique)-Very light muscle work designed to relax the muscles of the spine, neck, and face even further so that they do not pull the bones back out of place. The Bowen work has its own protocol for helping the TMJ. Developed by Tom Bowen of Australia who was an osteopathic type of therapist.
3. Cranial Sutural Spread- regular cranial work that feels like I am massaging the scalp where the bones of the skull come together. This promotes the flow of the cerebro spinal fluid in and around the brain.
4. Condyle Lift and Spread- It is designed to remove pressure off of the brain stem using very gentle lifting of the head with patient laying face up with light pressure laterally on the underside of the skull to increase blood flow to the brain by relaxing spasms in the “Vertebro/Basilar Artery” which supplies blood to the brain.
5. “TMJ Restoration®”-uses a small instrument that looks like what is used for “angioplasty”. It is a blood pressure cuff with a finger cot (small balloon) attached that is placed into the nose (turbinate bones) and inflated with air for about 2 seconds. The balloon then opens the cartilage at the back of the nose and allows you to breathe better. It also “begins the process” of restoring the subtle motion of the skull bones that is supposed to happen when you breathe air in. Recent research, done at my clinic in August 2004, has allowed for FINE TUNING of this “Advanced Skull Work” by checking for 78 treatment patterns. Each of the 78 different patterns that are unstable must be corrected. The examination reveals how much treatment that you will most likely need. Average is about 24 to 36 individual treatments.
6. Reset jaw muscle (Masseter) spindle fibers-very gentle massage of the major jaw muscles that allow you to chew.
7. Atlanto/Occipital Restoration-(Ligament Resetting)-light pressure applied behind the ear (bottom of the skull) and to the upper bone in the neck while rotating your head throughout its range of motion during inspiration and expiration to remove stress off of a VERY IMPORTANT ligament that acts like a guy wire to support the skull.

By finding and removing the subluxation complexes of the head; the TMJ gets corrected.

The Soft tissue work is just as important as the “TMJ Restoration®” in correcting the underlying cause of the TMJ.

The average scenario for 80% of the TMJ patients would be that all six major plates are locked and therefore 6-12 series of treatments would be needed.
For most TMJ patients that is a total cost of $6,250.00 spread out over 6-12 months.

About 20% of the TMJ patients have a lot of inflammation that requires more than 12 months.

All of our patients pay for treatment at the beginning of the week when treatment begins. Because of the changing environment associated with healthcare; insurance does NOT cover this work.

The Cerebro-Spinal Fluid acts like hydraulic fluid and once the compressed skull joints are unlocked then the spinal fluid begins to push the bones and cartilage into their proper position.

They tend to stay in the right place unless you receive a new injury or if you have lots of stress.

You NEED To Get Your Skull Checked for compression once per Year (just like having your teeth cleaned).

Get a tune up to Catch Any Problems Early Before They Have A Chance To Develop Into Major Health Problems.

[Once you have completed our program, then all re-exams are FREE to You AND Your Family. Be sure and ask about our FAMILY DISCOUNTS]

The sinuses and the skull plates shift with barometric pressure changes. Many TMJ conditions flare up the day before it snows or rains.

It is the combination of these 5 major and 2 minor techniques that gives our clinic its high success rate. This means quicker pain relief and less money out of your pocket in the long run. The “Soft Tissue Work” allows the “TMJ Restoration® ”to correct the TMJ quicker with less visits.

Our clinic is in Southlake, Texas and is the only TMJ Clinic in the United States that uses these 7 techniques. I am the ONLY doctor in the United States trained in all these therapies. We have a 90% success rate in reducing TMJ by 90% in six months. It Is Correctable!!!

Over half of my patients are from “out of state”. They drive or fly into Dallas/Fort Worth. The patients stay for 4 days and they do two series. Each treatment lasts about 30-60 minutes.

“TMJ Restoration®” helps to restore normal brain chemistry by removing the abnormal pressure of the skull that is compressing various lobes of the brain. “TMJ Restoration®” is not a panacea treatment that gets rid of every ache or pain from head to toe however it does address and normalize brain chemistry which controls all hormonal and body functions.

Day to day stresses can “burn up” these chemicals faster than you can make them especially when the skull plates are “compressed”.

We are finding that the work that I do using “TMJ Restoration®” to unlock the skull plates makes a direct improvement on brain chemistry.

Please contact me and we’ll talk about what is going on with you.

I look forward to speaking with you!

TMJ Patient Testimonials

Well, I’ve been suffering from TMJ and joint discomfort since 1986, due to getting kicked in the left side of my jaw, while wrestling competitively.
I tried everything from medicine, dentists, doctors, and had negative feedback and results.
I finally went on-line and found Dr. Jim.  I was nervous about going to Colorado from California, but I had to do something about this horrible problem.  Let it be known that I have also been having 2-3 headaches a week.
On the first visit to Dr. Jim, my headaches went away.
My second visit, everything is almost completely gone.
Thanks, Dr. Jim

After having suffered from sleep apnea and TMJ, I can say that after one  TMJ Restoration series, I can breathe through my nose at night which has stopped my snoring problem.
As for my TMJ, my right side has stopped popping and clicking completely, and I’m optimistic that in the coming weeks the left side will loosen up as well.   I’m so glad I came to Dr. McCarty, first, rather than spend time and money on other “less effective” treatments.
P. Kuhnen          Provo, Utah

“I had been having clicking and popping in my jaw for many years.  Over the last year and 1/2, it had worsened with my jaw often painfully locking up.  This changed a few months ago to having constant pain in my right jaw, extending from the temple area down my jaw, almost to my chin.
I saw Dr. McCarty’s web site and decided to call for more information.  After weighing my other options (I had been wearing a splint at night for over a year with no improvement), such as braces or surgery, I decided to try Dr. McCarty.
After three days of  TMJ Restoration, two treatments each day, I can now open my mouth wider, there is no longer the constant pain, and the pain I have when opening my mouth widely has been reduced by 80%.  I am looking forward to further improvement.”
B. Martin          Paola, Kansas

“I have had headaches since I was a little girl.  My jaw has always given me trouble, and I found out that I had TMJ when I was about 12 years old.  My mom and I have tried everything to find someone to cure my headaches, shooting pains, TMJ, and back pain.  I have had many doctors for separate problems.  Although these doctors would cure one problem, another one would occur.  I would be in constant circles.  I have had everything you can think of, from splints, to orthodontics, to heal lifts.  Nothing seemed to work.
My mom and I went online one night, and found Dr. McCarty.  We called the next day, and I found myself in Denver the next month.
The first day of  TMJ Restoration therapy opened so many doors for me.  I have always believed in God and Jesus Christ our Savior.  However, I never felt the emotion behind it all. Now, I have a deeper relationship with God.  Just from the first day, my headaches  stopped on the first few days of treatment.
I called my Momma every day, after treatment, and she noticed a change in attitude in life, emotion, everything.  She even described me as ‘bubbly”.  This treatment is helping me physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.  I thank God that He brought me to Dr. McCarty.  Anyone who has headaches and pain should see him. Even for one appointment.  It is worth a try.  He saved my life.  I finally feel free.”

My intention is to help heal as many TMJ patients as I can. Although I have had remarkable success using “TMJ Restoration®” to treat very difficult cases, I am not allowed to make guarantees. Each patient is unique and each situation is different. If you continue to treat TMJ with the traditional approach; then you will get traditional high failure rates. My approach is quite different and effective.

I look forward to meeting you, giving you some HOPE and getting you back to NORMAL. If you have any more questions, you can e-mail me or call me. Call to talk to me directly about your situation or to schedule an appointment.

You can E-Mail me at: info@drmccarty.com Please include your phone # and we will set up a time to discuss your situation.——-Dr. Jim McCarty, D.C.
