MS Patient Improvement: Correction TMJ Dysfunction and Body Asymmetries

The correction of TMJ (Temporo-Mandibular Joint) Dysfunction and other body asymmetries appears to hold the key in bringing about a revolutionary care in MS patients.

Jenny Linegraph

Mr  Amir BDS MSc (U of London) LDS RCS (England) Dental Surgeon first treated an MS patient successfully in early 2001, documented in the following article Case Study: Dental Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis by Mary Maguire published in Positive Health PH Online Issue 90 July 2003:

Mary is still extremely well with no signs of MS disabilities as she first experienced. More recently, following a publication of an article by Bella Freud in the Evening Standard about Mr Amir’s success with MS patients he was approached by a number of new MS patients to treat. Remarkably, all of them are showing signs of an amazing  recovery. Details can be seen at  where you can also easy to understand a graphical representation of patient recovery. More success stories are constantly being posted.

The premise of Mr Amir’s treatment is that the body functions best when it is optimally symmetrical. Asymmetries are present mainly in the way the teeth and jaws are misaligned. Further complications stem from the asymmetry of the Atlas Vertebrae which impacts on the neck and lower back spine, ultimately causing hip asymmetry. The hip asymmetry can also be present, independent of other asymmetries. Correcting these asymmetries brings about a proper function of all the nerves that emanate from the spine relieving the patients of many symptoms previously attributed to ‘Sclerotic lesions in the brain’.

Further Information

To contact Mr Amir please email  giving a very brief detail of your illness. He will than send you an extensive online questionnaire to complete before your appointment. You can also phone 020 8780 3433 for an appointment.

Sally Stubbs Hypno/Psychotherapist - Rapha Hypnosis Therapy

Sally Stubbs

Sally Stubbs LNCP FACH DACH has been in private practice for over 30 years and during this period has treated many thousands of people with psychological and emotional problems. She admits to becoming disillusioned and somewhat dismayed about the way part of her profession has dissolved into an assortment of ‘fast food’ would be ‘quick fix’ so-called therapies. She feels that EFT, CBT and NLP etc disciplines have their place, but do not always provide a permanent sound therapeutic resolution to what could be a long term problem, for those who are suffering emotionally and psychologically.

Driven by this dissatisfaction with what Sally currently sees being presented as therapeutic techniques, and with her passion, proven experience and on-going education in her chosen field, Sally has developed the Rapha Therapy System to enable those who suffer these kind of problems, to empower themselves using proven curative therapy to permanently resolve and cure their problem states.

Sally Stubbs has been privileged to study with some of the greatest minds of her profession, amongst others Dr Ernest Rossi who was Dr Milton Erickson’s amanuensis [a person employed to write or type what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another], Dr S Gilligan and David Grove. This, along with knowledge continually gleaned through her daily one-to-one practice and continued study of the depth and breadth of the subject has enabled Sally to incorporate great wisdoms and years of proven practice in hypnotherapy into Rapha Hypnosis. She has used this wonderful knowledge to develop her audio therapy treatments available on CD or as MP3 downloads.

What is Different about the Rapha System?

Traditional techniques employ strategies such as relaxation, pattern interruption, behavioural changes, visualization and distraction during which, the belief is, the unconscious mind will respond to such strategies as direct suggestion, and so on.

It will not. Certainly not permanently!

You can fool your conscious but you cannot fool your unconscious.

Rapha Hypnosis Audio Treatments elegantly puts you (your conscious self) in touch with your unconscious self to teach you how to revise your automatic (unconscious) way of reacting. Why? Because it is a fact that more than 90% of our daily life is driven by our unconscious thoughts, beliefs and reactions, which we have learnt throughout the course of our life. (REF: Erickson, Jung, Einstein, Professor Lipton, and many others).

Because they are by definition unconscious, we (the conscious we), need to be taught special strategies to communicate with and resolve, then revise these learnt, sometimes less than useful, behaviours and replace them with sound conduct appropriate to our life now.

From The Really Healthy Company: BioBran for a Strong & Healthy Immune System



BioBran, Developed in Japan by Daiwa Pharmaceutical in 1992, is manufactured using a patented process to break down (pre-digest) rice bran using enzymes from Shitake mushrooms. The resulting compound contains a unique blend of glyconutrients such as arabinoxylan, as well as other short chain polysaccharides and hemicellulose compounds. This unique molecular fingerprint makes it significantly more effective than other immune system supplements, giving the body its best opportunity to optimize its own natural healing mechanisms.

According to M. Ghoneum Professor of immunology at Drew University USA and a researcher with over 30 years experience, BioBran® MGN-3 is the most promising immune complex he has examined.

How does BioBran MGN-3 help us maintain a strong immune system?

Our immune system is comprised of an army of white blood cells - NK cells, T and B cells - which travel around inside us destroying the millions of intruding microbes that penetrate our bodies every day, as well as the thousands of newly infected or abnormal body cells that develop. BioBran MGN-3 gives our white blood cells the glyco-nutritional support to carry out their vital role energetically and efficiently, helping to optimize immune function.

Biobran is distributed in the UK by The Really Healthy Company,  a London-based health company specializing in the introduction leading-edge and research-based natural nutritional supplements into the UK and Europe, choosing products that they believe can make a real difference to customers' lives, products manufactured to the highest standards and which contain specialist natural and nutritional ingredients.

Depression - How Tomatis Listening Therapy can Help

At this time of year when the days are shorter and the days of longer light are fading away, many people start to feel the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder, better know by its acronym, SAD.

Marcia with Headphones

Actually light is at the heart of the matter. Light has a much higher frequency than darkness. Tomatis Listening Therapy could be loosely described as a quest for more light. The way someone perceives sound gives an indication of the light and dark frequency of their sound perception from low to high. The therapy commences with assessing the client’s aural perception, then essentially what follows is a recalibration of how they perceive sound by activating the muscles of the middle ear.

The tuning peg of the ear enabling a slack passive muscle to be invigorated back to an active state.  When somebody feels flat and lacking in energy, it is because their life experience has taught them from early childhood that the lower band of frequencies is a safer place to inhabit and then this band is habitually used as a gauge to read (listen to) our world. But it is the middle and higher frequencies though that energize us, charge the brain with cortical energy, spread light into the darker places  so we can heal. As one client put it,  “Tomatis gives us  the Jacob’s ladder to joy and peace”.

Tomatis explained “treatment with the electronic ear gives you the euphoria of listening and above all it restores the ear to its full deep functioning - a functioning completely forgotten even by most doctors. I have the good fortune to furnish the brain with enormous energy and when the brain is lights up it is intelligent. It will look at  problems , put them back into proportion and the result will be healing.” 

This year in March in an article in the Daily Mail, Brenda Fricker talked about  her life long struggle with depression and how Tomatis Listening Therapy had freed her from it. Ella uses the original unaltered analogue sound system devised by Prof Tomatis himself

Sherrie Palm: Pelvic Organ Prolapse Affects >3 Million USA Women; Millions  Worldwide

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Sherrie Palm’s campaign to establish recognition of pelvic organ prolapse began with the release of her award winning book Pelvic Organ Prolapse The Silent Epidemic.  Palm went on to found APOPS, Association for Pelvic Organ Prolapse Support, which provides education,  guidance, and support for women with POP.  Palm’s newly released second edition evolves the dialogue beyond POP basics and Palm’s personal experience with POP to address concerns women have about transvaginal mesh complications, impact to intimacy, and pelvic health maintenance. 

Pelvic organ prolapse has been on medical record for over 4000 years, yet millions of women suffer in silence because there is little dialogue or awareness about the health condition. Women suffering with signs of POP are typically unfamiliar with this common, cryptic, women’s health condition because symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse are embarrassing and are seldom discussed.

 “Pelvic organ prolapse is seldom life threatening but it is always life altering. POP is a global women's health pandemic; millions of women in both developing and developed countries suffer in silence from the physical, emotional, social, sexual, and financial ramifications of POP. Recognition of pelvic organ prolapse can only occur when we share what we know with others. It is my hope that as we continue to network, guide, and nurture women with POP, this condition will soon become common knowledge."   Sherrie Palm, APOPS Founder/CEO                                                                

Common symptoms of POP:

  • Urinary incontinence;
  • Vaginal/rectal pressure, vaginal tissue bulge;
  • Chronic constipation;
  • Pain with intimacy;
  • Rectal/vaginal/back/pelvic pain.

Sherrie Palm, APOPS Founder/CEO is an author and speaker on the topic of pelvic organ prolapse; her book and speaking info can be found at . Additional information about pelvic organ prolapse can be found on the APOPS website at

The Book of Oriental Medicine: A Complete Self-Treatment Guide

by Clive Witham

Published by Findhorn Press. 2012. £14.99. ISBN: 978-1-84409-604-6.

The Book of Oriental Medicine: A Complete Self-Treatment Guide

Take Charge of your Health with Oriental Healing Techniques

Addressing the issues of how and why illness occurs, this informative guide provides fresh Eastern perspectives on wellbeing and health. With easy-to-understand explanations, clear illustrations, and straightforward treatment alternatives, previously unexplained signs and symptoms can be researched, understood and dealt with. Tried-and-true techniques developed over hundreds of years - diet, acupressure, massage, exercise, scraping, and tapping - are offered for common maladies from colds and high blood pressure to backache and depression. Even with limited medical knowledge you can learn to assess your own conditions and become proactive in lifestyle changes, thus taking charge of your own healing process.

Of Interest

Practitioners of Oriental medicine believe that when there is balance in the human body between Yin and Yang the person will exhibit good health; however, when Yin and Yang are imbalanced, ill health occurs. Whilst this may appear to be complex it is actually incredibly simple - balance in the human body. This is why a combination of diet, acupressure, massage, tapping and exercise are effective. Oriental Medicine determines your level of health through the examination of the normal and abnormal organ system functions in your body, and by treating the cause of the problem rather than the symptoms, brings the body back to the point of balance and wellbeing.

About the Author

Clive Witham Lic.Ac MBAcc is a licensed acupuncturist and runs an acupuncture clinic in a Spanish enclave in North Africa where he promotes Oriental ideas of healing and self-treatment. He has trained in the UK, China, Thailand and Japan, and is also a Member of the British Acupuncture Council.

    Crystal Ball - Tap Water Eczema

    A Crystal Ball bath dechlorinator changes chlorine in the bath water to harmless zinc chloride. A shower filter removes 99% of chlorine from the shower water. Chlorine does an excellent job killing bugs in our water, but chlorine is a yellow-green poisonous gas that has a corrosive effect on organic matter and people. Chlorine in your bath and shower will have a dying effect on your skin, making already sensitive skin more sensitive and itchier. Healthy House shower filters and Crystal Ball are available individually or as a set at 10% discount.

    Exercise Reduces Cancer Patients Depression

    Regular exercise reduces depression in cancer patients. MacMillan-funded research by a team of UK researchers at the Universities of Strathclyde and Dundee, published in the Journal of Cancer Survivorship, revealed that women who had taken part in an exercise programme during treatment for breast cancer five years ago, now averaged 3 hours 20 minutes more physical activity each week than a control group who did not participate in the exercise intervention during the treatment, and consistently experienced lower levels of depression.
