Hello and welcome back to episode 93 of the podcast!
We are 3 days into Winter here in Victoria and I’m already over it. ;-) I feel guilty even joking about how miserable Winter is making me literally three days in when so many of you live in places that get buried in snow each winter, which in my mind is only ever magical. ;-) Part of me loves winter but, my TMJ (jaw disfunction) issues are so much worse when the weather is cold and my jaw is just naturally more inclined to clench, causing me pain, tightness and general ongoing discomfort which is a giant pain in my face because I love running outdoors in the icy temperatures.
Ok, that’s neither here nor there, this week I was very excited to have Doctor Joel Kahn on the show!
