@jakey I´ve contacted Mike and his father John Mew in their facebook group (private group, called cranciofacial action group).
That´s what I wrote, hope I did explain everything correctly
Maybe not that interesting for you, but just for the record.
And I did get an answer (further down below)
I really like your approach to natural health improvement, concerning teeth and the facial structures, by having the right (tongue) posture. I´m still quite new to mewing, but already really fascinated.
I´m writing you because I thought you might be interested in connecting with Jake Steiner, he is into another health improvement topic - reversing myopia.
I thought that both of your approaches have a lot in common (natural health improvement, very unconventional, not a quick fix…) and wondered whether you would be interested to get in touch with each other.
(In short: myopia isn´t genetic but starts out as transient, pseudo myopia from focusing too much close-up, which induces a focusing muscle spasm. You have blurry distance vision. Glasses can compensate for this in short-term, by moving the focal plane back further in the eye. On the long run however, the eyes get used to the glasses and react to this external stimulus by elongating (axial elongation). This results in so called lens induced, progressive myopia.
Reversal: By weaning your eyes (in +0.25 diopter-steps) from your glasses combined with avoiding close up-strain people can get back to perfect eyesight again.)
A more in detail-explanation:
Several people have tried to make this method more well-known but unfortunately still very view people do know about it. Jake Steiner really wants to change this. He also has a Facebook group and a YouTube channel.
Jake does podcast episodes with his students himself, and he also has been a guest in several podcasts, for example at Ivor Cummins - The Fat Emperor.
I appreciate your work a lot, and maybe connecting with each other could be something beneficial for both of you.
Here´s what Prof John Mew has answered:
thank you for your suggestion everything you say makes sense and I have shared your opinion for many years. In fact astigmatism is also linked to narrow maxillae for similar reasons.
I did try to set up some research but sadly could find no ophthalmic surgeons who were interested. Now I have run out of time on almost everything. I am preparing three papers on other subjects, but would be happy to support you if you wish. Prof John Mew.
