    How I was cured.

    How I Was Cured. By: MeWritten on April 6th, 2013 I NEVER...had a history of geographical tongue. Then suddenly, I had strange symptoms of TMJ appear a little over a year ago...the pain spread to my tongue, and before I knew it, I was getting a biopsy done to see if I had cancer. I'm sure many of you have been through this before...I was put on every steroid and pain killer known to mankind, but nothing...NOTHING could ease my pain. It got so bad...I was unable to speak, barely able to eat some days, I wanted to give up....

    Six months ago, a doctor heard about my pain and suffering...he talked me into seeing him. I had my doubts..and reservations. Keep in mind I went to doctor after doctor, and they all pretty much gave up on me, they said there was no cure.

    Long story short....the cause of my pain...a pinched brain stem. That part of the brain stem was the source of blood and information that fed my mouth "tongue" not so many tongue was dying, because that part of the central nervous system was not delivering blood/oxygen into my mouth properly, so it was causing the nerves in my mouth to fire off the pain receptors non-stop. He said many chronic glossitis sufferers may be easily remedied if only they were properly diagnosed.

    My testimony...almost 100% pain free. I still go to therapy about twice a month to correct the twist in my spine that created the pinch in my brain stem.

    A regular chiropractor may not diagnose this properly. His kind of practice follows the teachings of Clarence Gonstead, he has alternative care facilities all over.

    Please email me if you have questions. I remember the pain and suffering that I went through...I truly wanted to die. If I can help heal another with this information "not saying this is the reason for your pain" but it could be...and if you have tried traditional doctors and pain pills with little or no pain relief in sight...why not check it out.
