Distortion and disease

1. 1    Tics and Tourette’s Syndrome

Like in the case of dystonia, tics and Tourette’s Syndrome are considered to be caused by imbalance of the TMJ, leading to subluxation of the upper cervical vertebrae as well as abnormality of the brain-nerve system.

Imbalance of the TMJ induces distortion of the Sphenoid bone, which in turn causes errors in the brain-nerve system including abnormality in the circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid. This then triggers abnormality in neurotransmitters, which will generate an interference signal that eventually gives rise to tics and/or Tourette’s Syndrome.
(Tourette’s Syndrome is diagnosed when both motor and phonic tics are present for more than one year.)

1. 2   TMD and Facial asymmetry

Asymmetry, i.e., misalignment, of the TMJ can cause temporomandibular-joint disk displacement, one-sided abrasion of the teeth, and skewing of the mandible. This can lead to temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD) and facial asymmetry.

The mandible is connected to ligaments, muscles, fascia, and the sphenoid bone that together form the skull, and is also linked with the temporal, occipital, and hyoid bones, as well as indirectly with the upper cervical spine through the neuromuscular system. To be specific, there are 9 cranial nerves and 136 muscles (68 pairs) around the TMJ that can hypercontract and become strained due to imbalance of the TMJ. This directly influences the face and the structure of the skull. Therefore, TMD and facial asymmetry are closely related and generally occur simultaneously.

Symptoms include: TMJ pian, trismus, TMJ noise, habitual dislocation of jaw, and bruxism. Most of facial asymmetry, mandibular deviation class 2&3 malocclusions, partial cross bite, and facial asymmetry due to open bite, deep bite.

1. 3   Other disorders

FCST has also proven to be highly effective for treatment of disorders such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, hallucination and auditory disorders, chronic fatigue, migraine, and failure to thrive.

1. 4   Underlying causes

Apart from the distorted cerebro spinal structure that all of the above diseases have in common, there also appears to be a commonality in their underlying causes. The following list of causes is drawn up based on the anamnesis of hundreds of patients.

  • Trauma to head and/or neck
  • Mental stress
  • Wrong eating habits
  • Untreated dental problems, including malocclusions
  • Teeth grinding
  • Genetic or congenital problems
