This week our office has been flat out with the release of the ‘Jawcerciser’. We have had a very positive response and can’t wait to start hearing feedback from everyone’s progress. I’ve started my jaw exercising and have noticed my teeth already look much whiter. I’ve also noticed that I’m starting to crave the chewing sensation, which must be a good sign.
In this post I have included an article that Victoria wrote while in the midst of her Jawcerciser research and production. It clearly explains the concepts behind this simple devise and why it is so important. As Victoria says, it’s hard to believe that nobody came up with this obvious idea before her.

I realized that by consuming most of my food in a blended form, I have almost completely eliminated chewing, which I knew was an important part of a digestive process. To make up for this I decided to create some exercises for my jaws and eventually came up with a jaw exerciser, a simple device that I started carrying with me and practicing jaw workouts when I had a chance.
At first I was amazed how week my jaws were, they would get num just after as few as five movements. I kept progressing very quickly and by the end of the second day of practicing was able to perform 20-30 movements at once.
I have to admit that moving my jaws against resisting force of exerciser is pleasant to such a degree that I actually enjoy them. I realize how much my jaws have longed for this kind of movement all these years.
In addition to this pleasant sensation I have noticed that my teeth have become whiter and a lot stronger, my gums became healthier. I also noticed that performing a little workout in my mouth right before eating improved my digestion.
I made some research and found out that the bone tissue, that forms our skeleton, is a truly remarkable material. It is constantly modeling and remodeling itself. This process of continuous bone regeneration reminds me of our road service that is constantly performing construction on highways, taking old cracked pavement off and laying down new strong smooth asphalt instead.
In 1892 a German doctor J. Wolff discovered that, “It is obvious that mechanical forces have a major influence on the bone modeling and remodeling processes in both cortical and trabecular bone, since their effects on bone morphology are obvious…The mechanical forces are sensed in the bone, and all of these mechanical forces are translated to structural adaptation of the internal tissue architecture.”
In other words, whichever bones we want to grow stronger, we need to load with exercises. No pills, no food, no supplements could substitute for exercise and make our bones stronger.
Dr. Weston Price was deeply concerned with the fast growing numbers of increasingly deformed dental arches, crooked teeth, and cavities. He wrote about profound degeneration of health in so-called civilized nations in 1939, almost 100 years ago. In his research, Price demonstrated the connection between the development of jaw deformities and eating processed foods. I would like to emphasize that raw, natural, unprocessed food requires a lot of chewing, while most of processed foods are too soft and do not need any work on behalf of jaw muscles. For example, compare soft wonder bread, baked potato or oatmeal (which hardly need chewing at all), to some tough plants such, as celery stalks, hard-shelled nuts or fibrous roots that require vigorous masticating. The absence of workout for the muscles of our jaws is probably one of the major factors contributing to the development of week, degenerative jaws.
As I could not believe that nobody else came up with such an obvious and simple idea before me, I went to a patent attorney and initiated a search. When I received proof that indeed nobody had thought of it yet, I applied for a patent and in a few months am planning to start distributing my jaw exerciser.
My dentist told me that there are millions of Americans who suffer from severe jaw deformity, especially many young people and children. He said that they usually have to go through a very painful surgery that gives them only temporarily relief. I hope that some dentists would consider including my jaw exercise program at least into their prevention recommendations.
