Mike. I drooled with the generic paper tape and that stopped when I went back to the 3M micropore tape as mentioned in a post last week. I also tape past the corners of my mouth with an impact on drooling as well.  However the myofunctional therapist that mark Cruz had on his spree cast a while back, Jennifer Hobson, tells me that she can transition to a smaller piece of tape - not covering across her full lips without a negative impact. I can't.

That said, Keith, I'm after mike for an obturator!

Sounds like a great solution Keith !  I fabricated a mytap for myself and have been trying to reduce the drooling with taping ! I would love to try your obturator .

There is quite a bit of literature on morbidity of the maxilla with nasal cpap. Lowe has one or more papers. I have seen it on the papers of Chinese or Asians. I am almost sure I have seen it mentioned as a morbidity of pediatric pts but don't remember a specific paper. 
Concerning taps, my taps, posterior stops, and nasal breathing, I have been working on a silicone oral obturator that has 3mm posterior stops at the 1st molar, second bicuspid position. This allows to increase vertical as well while eliminating oral breathing. The device forces nasal breathing, eliminates dry mouth and drooling and pretty much eliminates the issues with the post. My wife who has a 40 yr hx of bruxism and ha (has ifl airway dysfunction) has been well treated with a tap but now prefers mytap. She still complained of muscle fatigue in the morning. She wore the obturator last night for first time. Eliminated her muscle complaints.  I have a few guys trying the prototypes. I have been wearing one for several weeks and it is now my preferred appliance. Time will tell

That has been my experience since I started making what I call a tmj balanced tap. I recently treated a 24 year old female who stated she has had migraines her whole life and now she is headache free. I have been more successful with the balanced tap in stopping headaches , than I ever was  using splints. I now have neurologists who are referring because of that and almost every patient they send has UARS. My opinion is that very few people recognize UARS. Think this is really up to dentistry.

Hi all.......I want to share an experience over the last few months that may be old hat for many of you, but I think it will get the attention of all.   In February my sleep assistant looked a bit down one day and I asked whether or not she was OK.  Mind you, she is here nearly every day and she is not a complainer.  That day she said she had ANOTHER migraine.  Another?! I didn't know that she had any.  This apparently has becoming a more persistent problem during the winter.  She reported daily headache and migraine 2 or 3 per week!  I won't get into our examination.  Let's just say there appeared to be significant muscle involvement and her daily headache was reproducible with the Metz stress test.

     We made her an anterior appliance and she did well from the first day.  She didn't have a migraine break through until the end of March (after spending a day with her mother).  She continued with that success.  In June, after the AADSM meeting, we received a shipment of myTAPs.  I suggested that we make one for her, since she would be making them for patients.  Years ago, after taking the first course from Jim and Jeff, I screened all of my team.  At that time her RDI was very low with no cycling, but I will admit that her HR was somewhat active.  She has responded incredibly to the myTAP!  She continues to have no headache.  More importantly she reports significantly better sleep (and she thought that she slept well before). 

    Needless to say she is an enthusiastic proponent of OAT.

              Jack

Please share this info far and wide.  I thank Carole for sending this.  It is happening now in the Metro Detroit area.  Please check what is going on in your city.  WE need Divine Government for all now!!!!



Subject: Smart Meter INFO & WEBSITES


 
Recently I received a letter from DTE informing me the DTE will be installing advanced metering in our area.  Digital "SMART" Meters are replacing analog meters. 
 
This has become a great concern for many people, for several reasons.  First of all, for PRIVACY (installing them without consent is actually illegal) as they monitor the activity in your home.  Second of all (and MORE IMPORTANT, IN MY OPINION) are the HEALTH IMPLICATIONS OF THESE DEVICES.  There is much documented evidence that these SMART Meters and overexposure to Electromagnetic (EMF) and Radiofrequency (RF) Fields can be directly linked to significant health problems.
 
PERSONAL EXPERIENCE IN OUR HOME – Several months ago, our Analog Electric Meter was replaced with a Digital Meter that consistently transmits Radiofrequency Fields and increases our Exposures.  It is not fully-functioning as a SMART Meter yet, but is still transmitting RF.  I do not believe in coincidences, but I can report that my daughter experienced months of severe nose bleeds (that she never had before) - and the head of her bed is directly in alignment with the new meter on the other side of the wall.  Nosebleeds are a VERY COMMON SYMPTOM when there is overexposure.  This is only ONE of the many conditions that have been recognized as directly attributable to these types of Metering Systems.   Research has documented the EMF and RF Emission are linked to genetic defects, cancer, developmental abnormalities, neurological, cardiac and other diseases. 
 
I have attached 2 reference documents, and am forwarding more information BELOW from a Health Coach who has been studying the Health Implications of SMART Meters for some time.  You will also find some website links where you can LEARN more as well as WHAT STEPS YOU CAN TAKE

USA Africa Dialogue Series - Fw: BORNO: POINTERS TO CIVIC RENEWAL?

BORNO: POINTERS TO CIVIC RENEWAL?

Ayo Olukotun

The struggle to reclaim chunks of Nigeria's territorial space violated by Boko Haram continues to make headlines, nationally and internationally. Unlike the dreaded Ebola scourge which government appears for the moment to have successfully contained, the insurgents seem to be constantly replenishing their tactics, illustrated by recent occupation of territory and the declaration of an Islamic Republic in Gworza. The ebbs and flows of the military campaigns; the swelling ranks of refugees and the sensational revelations of Stephen Davis, have found wide play in the media and national conversation.
Little noticed, however, much less discussed are the heroic exertions of rag tag local militias one of which reportedly overpowered 75 insurgents around Mubi, Adamawa state, last week. Nor is this an isolated event. The hunters around Chibok, a village that entered the world map through the April 14 cruel abduction of over 200 school girls have been actively involved in repelling skirmishes and ambushes of Boko Haram in the vicinity of their homelands. It is interesting that the largely unsung acts of these militias now dovetails into the formation of a Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) giving backup to the military formations.
The third example of impressive volunteering comes from the recent report that about 10, 000 Maiduguri youths demonstrated against the ceaseless attacks of Boko Haram and expressed their readiness to be conscripted into the battle against the sect. This report must of course be placed in the context of recent raids and forays around Maiduguri signalling a military confrontation between the Nigerian Army and Boko Haram. In other words, as several besieged citizens scampered out of Maiduguri, these youths decided to stay back and ward off the invading terrorists.
What is significant about these acts of courage is that they point to prospects of civic renewal, a virtually invisible chapter in our national chronicle. The decay of a state that has more or less orphaned its hapless citizens has been much lamented. We have heard very little however about civic decay, that is the failure of civil society to take action on its own behalf if only to remedy the consequences of state paralysis. A colleague, who came from the United States recently, narrated to me how he got down from a car taking him to Lagos from Ibadan in order to put a few stones and some sand on a particularly dangerous spot on the Expressway. What alarmed him, he explained to me, is not the well known fact that it had taken so long for government to carry out ongoing repairs on that busy road but the fact that Nigerian citizens, some of who ply that road on a daily basis, go on the road in blissful indifference to simple remedial steps which would
have made it a less dangerous road. Of course, it can be submitted that it is not the duty of the citizens to repair roads for which funds are perennially appropriated. Nonetheless, the anecdote illustrates how far away we are from the kind of communal self-help that can change things in little ways.
Akin Mabogunje, renowned Professor of Geography it was who marvelled at the state of mind of Nigerians who have no qualms in removing railings from a newly constructed bridge in order to sell them. Hence, instead of a civic conscience energising and motivating purposeful action that will benefit society we have an emerging 'uncivil' society prepared to destroy public property for self-enrichment. The oil pipeline vandals and bunkering barons; exam malpractice racketeers, fake drug merchants and other criminalized gangs point to a society that has cast off all restraints and slipping back into the Hobbesian state of nature. Remarkably, these foot soldiers and generals waxing fat at the expense of a degraded society will turn round someday and blame the government that things are not working. What is not factored is that the trade union leader who converts union funds into private wealth, pastors and Imams stealing their congregations blind,
delinquent lecturers who trade marks for sex and cash are just as culpable as politicians who have merely stretched this mode of impunity to an industrial level.
To be sure, some of the problems began with the inherited colonial state which made it a point of duty to isolate itself from the community by building Government Reservation Areas for the tiny colonial overlords. In Jebba, Kwara state, the GRA sits aloft a high hill in splendid isolation from the presumed commotion in the rest of the town. This is a perfect metaphor for the Nigerian state run by experts, foreign or local, but hardly affecting the lives of those it purports to govern. Consequently, our democracy is one of representation narrowly concerned with rights, mainly political rights, but hardly participatory or deliberative in the sense of harnessing the energies of communities much less making them the focus of governance. That is why what passes for local government is neither truly local since it is derivative of a vertical geography of power sanctified by trickle down philosophy nor is it government properly speaking since it does not
seek the opinions of the communities around it and is perfectly content to carry on without them.
In other words, state decay is complemented by and reproduced through civic decay as state and society are caught in a politics of irresponsibility. The hunters of Borno and the youth volunteer militia of Adamawa in standing up to Boko Haram have shown a different model of state society collaboration indicating that civic renewal and the reconstruction of the Nigerian state are not mutually isolated but complimentary projects.
None of the foregoing arguments are meant to excuse or apologise for Nigeria's bandit political class. The point must be made however that the state cannot be reconstructed or transformed without drawing upon the untapped energies, knowledge systems and heroism of civic communities which must now be fully enlisted in the search for redemptive governance through a bottom-up approach.
How can this be brought about? There is the need to put the people rather than experts with rescue mission mindset at the heart of governance. If government will not do this then the people must seize the initiative. Nothing stops communities and their representatives from taking active interest in how the budget for health or education is drawn up and expended. It is too late to complain about poorly furnished hospitals after a comparative paltry sum has been allocated to the health sector. Similarly, it is crying over spilt milk to lament the decay in education after the yearly budget has been constituted. Civic renewal would mean that swathes of non-partisan groups will hold town hall meetings in the prelude to the drawing up of yearly budgets to discuss and establish priorities. This will also involve groups set up by the people to monitor and crosscheck the claims made by government on what and what they have achieved at various times.
The bottom line is that the valiant acts of the vigilantes of North East Nigeria should be turned into an occasion for civic renewal and the re-engineering of the Nigerian state.
