How to stop teeth grinding known as Bruxism

by Sean Martu

About 5 years ago a friend of mine asked me how to stop teeth grinding at night, at the time I had no idea what it was so I had to do my research.

I found out that teeth grinding is known as bruxism, and is a condition in which you grind, gnash, or clench your teeth. It’s possible you may unconsciously clench your teeth when you’re awake or clench or grind them during sleep.

Sleep bruxism is considered a sleep-related movement disorder. People who clench or grind their teeth during sleep are more likely to have other sleep disorders, such as snoring and sleep apnea.


  • Teeth grinding or clenching
  • Teeth that are flattened, fractured, chipped or loose
  • Worn tooth enamel
  • Increased tooth pain or sensitivity
  • Tired or tight jaw muscles, or a locked jaw that won’t open or close completely
  • Jaw, neck, or face pain or soreness
  • Pain that feels like an earache
  • Dull headache starting in the temples
  • Damage from chewing on the inside of your cheek
  • Sleep disruption

How to remedy Remedy

What I found out is that bruxism is caused by three conditions, low cellular magnesium, low serum calcium + vitamin D3, and internal parasites. My friend actually had internal parasites due to being an avid “foodie”. I told her to try a high-grade food grade diatomaceous earth which is the most potent parasite cleanse I know, and within a week her bruxism disappeared. You can get food-grade diatomaceous earth on my website in 1lb and 12 oz bags.

If you have a magnesium deficiency which we all do, it states in this Pubmed article, I suggest taking Drs Best Magnesium Glicynate or Natural Calm Magnesium Carbonate.

If you believe you have vitamin D3 + calcium deficiency as stated in this PubMed article, I suggest taking this 5000iu of D3 daily of Now Brand High Potency Vitamin D3, and take this calcium supplement.

I hope to see an article on the benefits of fasting and the best way to do it. It’s even in the Bible.
