      Body:

      The lever effect in action:

        *I actually weigh 50kg, not 60kg. Which is way more of a problem. 60kg is normal BMI, 50kg is underweight/malnourished. (the link to edit my post is gone sorry.)

        In other news, today I have made the dental impression required for obtaining this dental guard, which has been recommended to me by Valerio as suitable for the Starecta treatment.

        I had two epiphanies at the moment of making the dental impression on the tray provided by the company. I was not waiting for any of them, so I was both shocked and pleasantly surprised when they happened.

        First, when my teeth bit into the paste, I suddenly was made conscious of the height discrepancy between my left teeth and my right teeth. The feedback of the gel told me very distinctly that a big height difference existed between the two ranges, and that full molar occlusion could not happen in my case.

        Could this be one of the explanations for my body asymmetry? (picture will follow)

        Secondly, I am now convinced the lever effect described by Moreno in his book is real. My head was tilted backwards when I had the tray in the mouth, and I could tilt it even more by applying pressure on a “paddle” at the front of the tray.

        This makes me extremely confident in the value of the treatment.

        I will give pictures of my body in the following post, as well as pictures of the lever effect I have just described.
