Section 1-5. “Hazo disease” lowers quality of sleep

Sleep consists of two types such as REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep accompanied by rapid eye ball movement and NON-REM sleep without them. NON-REM sleep is classified into two periods including shallow sleep and deep sleep. When we fall asleep, NON-REM sleep occurs, gradually is deepen, followed by appearance of REM sleep. After repetition of these NON-REM~REM cycles 4 to 5 times, we wake up. If the sleep lasts for an adequate period of time without discontinuation, with predominant deep sleep, we can enjoy “Sound sleep” , namely good quality of sleep. As an old saying tells us “Children who sleep well can grow fast”, growth hormones are notably secreted during the period of deep sleep. Growth hormones contribute to prolongation of heights of children and production of protein and nucleic acids in adults. “Prolactin” known as the hormone responsible for secretion of milk in mothers is also secreted during sleep.“Hazo diseases” are frequently accompanied by pains of the body such as stiff shoulder, back pain and low back pain; however, pains stimulate brain-stem reticular activating system to disturb deep sleep associated with NON-REM sleep. If NON-REM sleep is disturbed to be insufficient, abnormality in the above-stated hormone secretions occurs, resulting in lowering of thinking faculty due to inadequate fatigue recovery of the brain. If excessive stresses are loaded continuously, it is known that sleep disorders are induced. According to the collation of the Case Reports of the patients, lots of patients with “Hazo diseases” are suffering from sleep disorders such as “insomnia”, ”sleepy feeling during the day time” and “suffering from too many dreams”. Following dental treatment, the ratio of the cured patients accounted for about 80%. In other words, disorders of teeth ―previously, teeth were considered to be only useful for ingestion of foods― play important roles in affecting the quality of sleep. We wish to sleep well after correction of abnormality of “Hazo” and prevention of them, leading to sending happy and pleasant days.

Before visiting this Clinic for treatment, I had no concentrating power but
I suffered from chronic stiff right shoulder. Following treatment for the
abnormal bites and removal of the distortion of my body, stiff shoulder was
alleviated. Probably due to this improvement, I felt relaxation of the
whole body and less concentration power has recovered. As the result, I
can concentrate my attention even during the examination. My bad posture
during the study was improved and I can sit for a long time on a chair.
Considering that I can stand for a long time more easily than before, I believe
that correction of my distorted posture turns out to be effective for me.

Improvement of the abnormal bites contributes to normalization of the muscle systems including anti-gravity muscles in the whole body, resulting in correction of the physical posture. Simultaneously, unnecessary tension and stiffness of muscles against the gravity are removed, together with liberation from stress. As the result, stiff shoulder disappears. In addition, both rhythm and quality of sleep are improved while recovery from fatigue of both the body and the brain becomes favorable; eventually, awakening in the morning becomes refreshed. As the natural outcome, the concentration power during the day time is augmented.Even though we perceive easy fatigue, easy enervation, palpitation by a tiny movement, unpleasant symptoms and anxiety, we manage to spend our daily lives. Accordingly, it is very hard for us to attribute them to “Hazo diseases” and most of such persons gave up their improvement because they believe that “Hazo diseases” come from constitutional predisposition. Such conditions are called as semi-healthy status or latent morbid conditions. Even if no abnormalities are observed by internal investigations, clear abnormalities would be disclosed by oral internal tests or “Hazo disease” examinations. In summary, teeth as the most significant stress factor for physical and mental activities could be designated as the largest blind spot in the medical fields.
