Mewing creating asymmetries. Please help.

I am an 18 year old male who started this whole mewing thing around 2 months ago. Since then, I have seen significant results, such as better eye support, higher cheekbones, more prominent maxilla etc...

 

however, despite being happy with so far results, I have an entirely new problem on my hands. Mewing is lifting my entire left side of my face but not the right. I’ve noticed that the cheekbone on my left side is noticeably higher than the right, and it looks like my eyes are not positioned correctly. How do I fix/correct this? Will it correct itself naturally? It’s having me a little concerned now, even though I’ve really just noticed this over the past couple days.

I don’t believe so, no.

It could be a number of things, but it could also be your neck and how your skull is now resting. Rather than it being mewing that is literally making your face assymetrical, you might be unconsciously tilting your head in a manner you hadn't before.

Check your ears and make sure they are in alignment. Have you been practicing body posture as well as oral posture?

Perhaps. Ive been keeping an eye on body posture, but nowhere to the extent of oral. Is there a guide on here to body posture? Thank you for your response.

Dr. Mew says he doesn't help fix asymmetries.  It is not his thing.  He sure creates them, though!  The guy who is into asymmetries is lviglobal in Las Vegas.  He trains dentists and does tslk about asymmetries and TMD.  Those are his fortes.  He's active on his koolade FB group.  You must drink the koolade to enter.   https://www.drrolanddental.com/featured-patients/facial-growth-and-development-orthopedic-and-orthodontic-treatment/ is a dentist he trained.  Bill Dickerson is pretty knowledgeable... however...I do like DNA (major competitor of his) for airway.

@js1984 There's no specific guide for body posture, as everyone is so different, but there are tons of resources out there, and a search through this forum will result in a lot of interesting threads. One of the most favored methods is the book "8 Steps To A Pain-Free Back" by Esther Gokhale.

I'm personally of the belief that correction starts from the ground up. I've had tight calves ever since I can remember, and it's only been this year that I've started really working on my flexibility. I need to be more diligent and really start working on overall strength as well. But the little things have added up, and I've noticed a huge difference in everyday moving and tasks.

Darkindido so you think mewing isn't natural position of tongue and we shouldn't do it?

I second that. 

Pushing /hard mewing really creates asymmetry. 

The whole idea of pushing your tongue up/forwards is ridiculous.
