View Full Version : Teeth Grinding

Day 1 of the cleanse and I'm grinding my teeth like crazy. Or maybe I'm just clenching them. Either way, I'm giving myself a headache and constantly having to mentally relax my jaw. Has anyone else had this? I don't know myself to have ever done this before.
Is is safe to have some kava kava tea to help relax?

Funny you should say that. When I got to the 2nd or 3rd day of my fast, I was wakiing up grinding my teeth, almost like I was chewing something. Thought I had a good dream about eating some delicious food. Anyway I woke up like that every morning till I blew the fast. Now I'm back on it, today's day one. Hopefull I will not wake up like that again, cause it gives me a headache too. Anyway, my colon therapis told me to take natural calm while I am on the fast. It is magnesium and supposed to help with bowels, but judging from the name, I assume it is really used for calmness. It comes in a powder and you mix it in water. The directions are on the bottle. The lemon one is really yummy.

Maybe you could get one of those rubber retainers... like for football players. You can pick them up at sporting goods stores, drop them in warm water them pop them into your mouth and they will mold to your bite.... or -- make a visit to your dentist.... they can also make a teeth guard for you.
One interesting thing I read many many years ago.... which may or may not apply to you... but...
teeth grinding (especially at night) can be stress related -- or it can also be a sign that your body is trying to get rid of parasites. As a mother -- this is an old wives tale I was taught to watch for (in my children).
At night the parasites begin to move and for whatever reason - the body responds by grinding it's jaws (teeth)... not sure what the corrolation is there... but I have heard this over the years ... from more than one source.
some believe that all humans have parasites... and we need to do regular maintenance and cleansing to make sure we get them out of us.....
Perhaps -- keep and eye on your stools... and make sure you are keeping those bowels moving....
if you are on the MC (which I believe you are Monster) this is a natural method of ridding the body of any parasites. The cayenne pepper gets them out of your body.
but... of course... this is just a thought.... and may not be true at all.... AND.. it could be as simple as you are just grinding your teeth!
