I have been praying for a few answers, basically what I do is “I live in the questions and allow myself to walk up on the answers”. Sitting in silence and just asking the universe the questions, sitting with the feeling of not knowing and just asking for help whenever these questions arise through out the day. Life has somehow proved this to work time and time again, hindsight shows that many parts of my life is happening as a result of me asking the questions. “ask and you shall receive” heard that somewhere before. Sometimes I am actively seeking the answers but many times answers seem to just fall from the sky when least expected, I find that it is more important to just ask the questions…be in that state of asking, of surrender to the feeling of not knowing, and letting it go. Michael Brown from thepresenceportal.com demonstrates this for anyone willing to try. I’ve read several spiritual/personal development books in the past but Michael Brown’s work, I have to say, is the one thing I find myself coming back to, time and time again. It is one of those books that have indeed impacted me in a lasting way, and has taught me and continues to teach me a lot about life. I am at many times in awe of Michael’s work…
My questions involve this physical restructuring process, basically how can someone that is already an adult and past the growing stages, create new growth patterns in the face so that horizontal growth in triggered to regain some of our genetic potential?
Especially if some of us had allergies, adopted poor swallowing or breathing patterns when we were little which created unfavorable vertical growth when we were growing up?
First question I have been asking is, Is my aquiline nose (or roman nose, or “hook” nose) a result of genetics or is it a result of malformation of the skull? For a long time I thought this was genetic, but recent findings is showing that this may be a function of environmental factors not genetics. Just like how environmental factors can give you small palates and crowding of teeth, but these things have been chucked away and blamed on “genetics” by traditional orthodontists, however now new orthodontics and great work by someone like Weston Price is proving these notions to be false.
Also the chin that appears weak, can the mandible also remodel and reshape towards more ideal shapes once you are an adult that already had too much vertical growth as children?
Just yesterday I found a great interview of Dr. Mike Mew who is son of Dr. John Mew creator of orthotropics (www.orthotropics.com).
You can find the interview here: http://doctorstevenpark.com/expert-interview-dr-michael-mew-on-breathing-the-modern-melting-face
You will have to enter name and email address to get to the interview. Make sure you download the pdf powerpoint slide file to follow along the mp3 interview file.
As I heard the interview it was surreal how Dr. Mike Mew seem to touch upon many if not all of my questions.
- Mandible for the most part remains the same size, the change in positioning of the mandible however can greatly affect the appearance of the chin. From weak vs. strong looking chin.
- If drastic deterioration of the skull can be see in adults from disease such as case with Stephen Hawkings, then there has to be a way to create an opposite effect, to make the skull go in the right direction, towards more ideal in adults as well.
- Aquiline or Roman nose, the history behind it, result of maxilla that is too far back and down.
Dr. Mike Mew and his father’s work is groundbreaking, however they tend to focus on children’s cases, because that is where they are seeing most profound results since children’s faces are still growing and changing all the time.
However, what about for adults? Well this area still seems to be new frontier for many people, for one, there is orthognathic surgery, where a surgeon cuts the bone and places the jaws further forward in the face. Dr. Hang from California seems to have his adult patients do this if necessary.
I am still not sure about this procedure, my hope and wish is to find non-surgical ways to create the same desired changes. Surgery seems to still be coming from the old paradigm of “bones at advance age fuse and do not move.”
Where the skull is changing shape even in adults, things like dents and ridges in the head are reversed with these therapies and better cranial symmetry is gained over time. I have seen this personally from my ncr treatments that I do on my self.
And talking with a few people, they mentioned the bones in the skull can be molded like clay, apparently if one was to eat nothing but apples and cooked vegetables for a whole month their whole face would become really mold-able like clay. This is something I have yet to try, and I will need to ask some more info on this, so stay tuned and I will let you know when I find out more about how our diet can aid in the bone remodeling process. For now, I am committing to adding more cooked vegetables to my diet. But this guy mentioned one woman had impacted wisdom teeth, he had her eat nothing but apples for a whole month, some ungodly amount of like 1 apple per hour or something crazy. Inside 1 month apparently her jaw grew length wise and her entire wisdom teeth had popped out.
Anyways, today on Dr. Mike Mew’s facebook page I found this.
