This blog aims to invigorate belief structures around autoimmunity, challenging the traditional notions that have confined patients and practitioners alike.
Autoimmune diseases, characterized by the immune system mistakenly attacking the body's own cells, affect millions worldwide. From rheumatoid arthritis to lupus, the prevalence and impact of these conditions cannot be understated. However, the narrative that autoimmune diseases are invariably chronic and irreversible is being reevaluated. Emerging research and countless stories of remission suggest that,...

At TCLM, we are dedicated to unraveling the complexities of chronic health issues and discovering their origins. Today, we delve into a fascinating and often overlooked connection—the profound impact of oral health on conditions such as chronic pain, fibromyalgia, digestive issues, chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune disorders, and more.
The Oral-Systemic Link: In our ever-evolving world, changes in food, environmental factors, and lifestyle have led to transformations in dental and mouth structures. Surprisingly, these shifts have occurred without adequate preventative measures, giving rise to structural issues that extend beyond the oral cavity. The result? A surge in obstructive sleep apnea, upper airway resistance syndrome, and other airway-related challenges that significantly impact overall health.
TCLM's Approach: At TCLM, we stand firm in our commitment to addressing the root causes of health issues rather than merely masking symptoms. To achieve this, we've fostered...

we're thrilled to introduce you to the transformative world of mind-body medicine through the inspiring insights of Geny Moreno, our esteemed Mind-body medicine practitioner. Geny recently shared a profound segment of her personal journey at the Demystifying Fibromyalgia Conference, and we're excited to bring you a deeper dive into the wisdom she unveiled.
Understanding the Power of Sleep
In her captivating session, Geny revealed a pivotal aspect of her story that many of us can relate to— the underestimated importance of sleep. Years ago, she found herself unknowingly caught in a storm of stress, only to realize later the toll it took on her body. During those times, she was getting a mere two to three hours of sleep each night. The impact? Her body showed signs of struggle, inflammation, and overall fatigue, a tale told by the puffiness in her face evident in older pictures.
