Your Piece in Your Health Puzzle

by Kathleen Carson

This is a book to help those wanting to get better by offering tools and techniques to help themselves. It was written for my patients undergoing treatment for TMJ, facial pain, and sleep disordered breathing issues as an important adjunct to their treatment within my office. I have seen vastly improved results and have helped many other people outside my office improve their overall health and well being, not just those I treat for pain and sleep. If you want to thrive, you alone hold that key.
I am a practitioner who treats patients for TMJ issues, sleep disordered breathing issues, pain issues, and all dental issues. We have many tools in our office to help reduce pain and inflammation, improve sleep and function, and "treat" many of the problems that people present with. This book is a way for you to help yourself improve outside of our tools; there are ways to help address the underlying issues that are causing these problems. This book provides education, tools, techniques, exercises - a variety of ways you can help yourself. Healthy breathing, home care exercises, ways to improve sleep, nutrition & supplements, among other topics presented in this book provide you with actionable steps you can take today. While this book was written with our patients in mind, it is full of significant information that can really help ANYONE improve their overall health and well being. I also consider this a great source for preventative care - my biggest successes are helping people to NOT need my services. "Kathleen Carson is my go to TMJ and sleep specialist on the West Coast. She has integrated a wealth of knowledge on airway, pain, sleep, and breathing." M. Gelb, DMD; The Gelb Center
