Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) is a debilitating condition that can make life unpleasant. Unfortunately, the demand for safe, tolerable TMD remedies has caused numerous companies to create products that make bold claims.

Relief in a Pill Bottle?

When people suffer from physical ailments, companies line up to profit. Such is the case with TMD sufferers, who are continuously subjected to gimmick products that almost always seem too good to be true. One particular company named Ridgecrest Herbals offers a vegetarian supplement which supposedly restores normal jaw function.

Packed with “special” herbal ingredients, such as cevadilla seed, ignatia amara, cocculus indicus and ammonium carbonicum, these capsules supposedly support healthy temporomandibular joint function. According to the product’s manufacturer, after taking six capsules a day for four weeks, users will experience greater freedom of movement and less muscle tightness and pain.

Unproven and Unregulated

Sadly, the federal government lacks the resources and will to regulate herbal products. Not only is Ridgecrest Herbals’ homeopathic TMJ remedy unregulated; it’s unlikely to do much more than make your wallet lighter.

Skip the Gimmicks

If you suffer from temporomandibular joint disorder, you aren’t going to find help from a pill, whether it’s a prescription drug or homeopathic herbal supplement. For real TMD relief, you need a treatment that focuses on the root cause of the disorder: your misaligned bite.

By correcting their misaligned bites, Dr. Berry provides his patients with lasting relief from jaw pain, jaw popping, chewing difficulties, chronic headaches and other symptoms associated with temporomandibular joint disorder.

Don’t waste your money on unproven, unregulated herbal supplements that make wild, unsubstantiated claims. For real, effective TMD relief, put your faith in an experienced, trusted professional, such as Dr. Berry.
