Watering Eyes, Digestive Issues, TMJ Problems – Lauren D-Part 2


(Music) Hi, my name is Lauren, and I am returning
now, after five weeks since I last saw Dr. Jaudy. I saw him for five consecutive
days, and now I’ve returned, and have repeated treatment for three consecutive days. I’m
here to report some good news. I came in with my eyes watering. Whenever I would
relax, they would water, they would burn, and then water as if I had onions with
me, and that has pretty much all together stopped. Occasionally I get a tear or two,
but the amount of tears that I had before was tremendous. It was as if I was bawling,
like runny nose, everything, and that is because my autonomic nervous system is
now balancing out, and I was stuck in sympathetic mode, so fight or flight, and
now… my parasympathetic is now coming into play and calming my
system down, and I’m getting rest,
and my system is now enjoying the benefits of that … as well, I have been
wearing a dental appliance for the last 16 years after I had a jaw surgery,
when I was 15 to actually prevent TMJ, which
I now developed, but anyway…
so I had a dental appliance that I had to wear every night in order
to hold my jaw in place, and if I didn’t wear it,
my jaw would pull backwards
into the back of my head, basically, and I would lose motion
in my joint. Dr. Jaudy worked with
me to slowly work off, wean off the appliance.
So, I lessen… each night I slept with it less, and I did applications on my own
that helped my brain to coordinate and the muscles to relax and to,
for my jaw to release… so that I could… so that it
would function without the appliance that after about two weeks, I stopped wearing
the appliance altogether, and I’m still not wearing the appliance. I’ve returned
and Dr. Jaudy has treated me for my TMJ. One joint would open, would move, and the
other wouldn’t, and now we have the other joint moving, so my jaw is now
opening and closing correctly,
and I’m not wearing my appliance, and that’s amazing.
Also, I’ve learned the relationship
between my SI joint pain, which I’ve had for five years, and
my jaw, and that they both… the SI and the jaw joints are on the same path,
neurological pathways, and so I’ve always had wondered if they’re related,
because sometimes I would not get enough sleep, and my jaw would
be locked, and then my SI joint would
flare up all of a sudden. So that was an interesting connection
that I learned about, that now that I am
rebuilding the pathways that connect both of those
joints through the trigeminal nerve, then I am now becoming stable, and overall I felt
a lot more stability in my balance, such as when I would go to lean over, and shift my weight. Before I always kind
of felt like I was still teetering, and now, for like the first time since I can
remember, I have the sensation of shifting my weight, and then re-balancing,
really strongly on, you know, from a different position. Also my… I’ve had
trouble with my posture forever, and after actually five days of treatment with
Dr. Jaudy, I noticed that my posture just straightened up, like without effort,
so that was really cool about it,
and I had a gap between my teeth that my orthodontist said
was a result of actually being in sympathetic mode, pushing forward,
and that was very noticeable. People
would comment on the gap, and it was a conversational
piece, and that closed up within, I’d say, a couple weeks, so there, yeah, there’s been
a lot of noticeable improvements,
and I’m feeling more stable than I have in as long as I can
remember, and I am excited to
see, you know, how my body continues to heal and stabilize
as I continue treatment. Well, one
of the things we worked on this week… actually, this week we worked on my, what
was it? The fencing reflex. Okay, so this week we worked on the fencing
reflex which is, when, if you lose your balance, how do you regain your balance
if you’re falling backward? And so Dr. Jaudy would simulate that by pushing me
a little bit, so I would lose my balance with my eyes closed, and then, watch
for what the reflex was, and before I had a tendency to have fascination,
which is taking very, like many small steps backwards. That’s common Parkinson’s
disease and other neurological disorders, and so when we initially started, that
was my reflex. It was to, like, totter, and through the application, simulating
on the machine that simulates me falling forward, slowly. It ignites… it simulates the part of my brain that’s done…
goes into effect to help with the reflex so by… on the first day actually, I developed a
reflex to put my dominent foot backwards and, brace myself, and that’s what we’re
looking for, and before that, I didn’t have a way to stabilize myself quickly.
It was like my brain lagged, and then it would, like, shuffle, my body would
shuffle, and there was no dominant side. So, the… definitely… I haven’t even had
enough time to really experiment, and see how it goes, but I’m definitely
looking forward to being more stable, because now that those pathways have
been created, and my brain knows how to keep, now I can communicate
to my muscles how to, you know,
how the reflex to… support myself. I would say the feeling
of becoming more integrated. Is… the system operate and functioning.
I think “function” is the best term.
When I… before I saw Dr. Jaudy, I really, how I explained my body was, it’s
not functioning. It just, it wasn’t functioning. I felt like I put so much
energy into it, and I got no energy out. Like, I was, I got tired easily, and I
constantly had joint problems on specifically my right side of my body, my ankle, my
hip. I’ve had problems with my arms and my wrist, my neck, and I would wear braces all the time. So I
had a dental appliance. I had a SI joint belt that held my joint together
whenever we’d be sitting longer than an hour, so car rides, airplanes. Everywhere that belt came
with me. If I had a job that I had to sit down, I was wearing that belt under my
clothes. I’m constantly injuring my right ankle. Like, in and out of an ankle brace
all the time. So, I always had like,
felt like I was always strapping myself up to keep myself
together, and even then it just
didn’t feel like I was functioning. And so, yeah, I
guess the best way to describe is,
I’m starting to not feel like I’m falling apart. Like the pieces are
not, like, on their own, doing their own thing, but that they’re actually, like,
getting aligned, and my body’s beginning to function as a unit. Dr. Jaudy is
different from other doctors, first of all, because he was able to evaluate me,
and diagnose what was going on in my body, and that’s something that no one
has been able to do all these years, and I’ve wondered why my eyes are
constantly watering, and why my SI joint never heals, and
why… I’d injure myself and the injury would never heal.
It would, like, become a chronic problem, and so doctors would try to help me, but there was
always a mystery, and so I would say, first of all, Dr. Jaudy, when I met with him, he made this enormous
list of things that are wrong with me, which completely overwhelmed
me, but at the same time, it was
like, that’s me but, those are, I’m dealing with every one of those things
and, it actually, I just started crying because it was like, no one has been able
to see that and repeat it to me, like I didn’t even tell him all those things,
and he was able to point them all out, but, and when he pointed them all out, he,
you know, he’s saying as well, we can start working on these. So, there’s
definitely hope. That’s what made him really different to me was that, I felt
like he was the first doctor that really understood what was going on
through my body and whatever I was experiencing as well. Like how hard it was to
live in a body that’s not functioning, and do a job, and, you know, make a
living, and do your work and, you know, and try to be functioning, but doing it
with like a handicap of a body that just is not giving you the support
you need to live your life, so that was the first, and then I would say, just the
way Dr. Jaudy works is different than other doctors. Just the science behind it
is different than you’ll hear from most doctors, but even more than that is the time
he spends with each patient, and then the intensity of it that he stays with you, so
you’ll come in for five days to start or so, and he will stay with you the whole time,
and answer any questions, and talk to you about your lifestyle, and talk to you
about things that would be good for you to do mentally and socially, and it’s…
and he just kind of takes you under, and then addresses everything in your life,
including your symptoms and your treatment, so he’s a good doctor, yeah. (Music)
