A look at our Native American ancestors to understand what it means to have good facial development. When over 80-90% of modern population is affected by Cranial Facial Dystrophy, we have now lost sight of what “ideal” is. We have come to accept narrow palate, and impacted wisdom teeth as normal. And now we believe good looking faces with strong jawline is a result of good genetics.
But we know that when someone doesn’t have “good jawline” they will have difficulty with breathing, symptoms such as snoring & sleep apnea will begin to show up which affect quality of life from mild to severe And of course, the obvious symptom of malocclusion.
When you add in the element of health with facial development then does it make sense to say good jawline was caused by the genes? Would there ever be a gene that would cause difficulty with breathing, the most vital thing for life?
Malocclusion just simply does not naturally exist in nature.
Humans are creation of nature. DNA is nature’s blueprint.
Why would humans be separate from nature’s designs, and have such things as “faulty genetics” that cause malocclusion & poor facial development?
There is no doubt genetics play a role in building our body, but hard evidence does not support the fact that there is genetics that cause poor development that is unattractive & unhealthy.
It seems development is directed by the intimate relationship between the genes and environment. The problem with modern humans is that all of us have now lost the way on how to properly live as nature intended.
isn’t it interesting that when we see wild life they all exhibit qualities of innate natural beauty and proper development? Let’s face it, wild animals are photogenic… often much more than most humans.
A look at our ancestors will also show this element of beauty. Sort of effortless elegance about them. A majestic look.
I believe this is human birthright as creation of nature.
Below are some breath taking old photographs of Native Americans. Notice the great cheekbones, broad faces, & square jaws.
We have this notion that indigenous tribes looked primitive, “ape-like”, & unappealing appearance. But this is most likely false image propped up by discriminative propaganda to make us view them as inferior.
In reality, the primitive people such as the Native Americans were most likely very good looking people. Early settlers did comment that indigenous tribes seemed physically perfect.
As I am finding out, this was most like the body as well as the face.
Notice the difference in body posture between the white man and Native American. How straight and tall the Native American is standing versus the white man who is sort of leaning to one side. (one leg shorter than the other?) You can see the impressive facial development of the Native American from distance. You can visualize the spine in the white man is sort of twisted, while it is completely erect & symmetrical in the Native American with broad shoulders.
For most of us standing that erect like the Native American would be uncomfortable, require effort which wouldn’t last for more than 30 seconds.
Great work to begin to study about body posture is Esther Gokhale
She also talks about primitive people had this sort of elegance about them that is being lost in Modern Humans. Modern living environment of poorly designed chairs & couches is leading to tucked in pelvis & slouched body posture.
Cranial Dystrophy occurred to the Caucasians First
Because the West had advanced civilizations first they showed Cranial Dystrophy long before rest of the world population.
Below are Dutch & Norwegian soldiers during WWII.
When you begin to compare and contrast the faces in this way: indigenous vs. modern, you begin to really see what it means to have Modern Day Cranial Facial Dystrophy.
Much older picture of Caucasian soldier in early 1800’s, Cranial Dystrophy is present even at these times.
When development has less dystrophy, we call these people handsome “the genetically blessed”, and you may have a shot at becoming an actor or model. James Dean with decent muscle tone / horizontal jaws however front cheeks are flat, notice the bags under the eyes, this area is known to be at the effect of tongue posture.
Did those Caucasian soldiers have bad genetics? or poor living environment?
Evidence suggests that to reach the top of the attractive tear drop, it has more to do with environment than genetics.
You can see for yourself when you browse through old pictures of Indigenous people, great jawline was a common thing. Contrast that to next time you go out to the grocery store or to the gym and look at the jawlines of people around you.
Did you know that paraplegics have to do physical therapy where they strap their legs on a bike machine that pedals for them to prevent the leg bones from becoming too thin?
are we seeing the same effect with our jaws? use it or lose it? how soft was your diet today? Do we require “physical therapy” now for our jaws like the paraplegics?
