Mike Mew’s latest fallout of Mark Z - and everyone else with craniofacial dystrophy
It’s on the YouTube Orthotropics page: https://youtu.be/MC4RqHV6wsk
The vibe seems like he’s much more into the idea of adults having hopeful change, I mean it’s subtle because like he says - most adults won’t do this work!
But knowing my lifespan might be even more reduced is a sad thing indeed!!! Any thoughts on what you got from this?
Dr. Mew says in his "Abs Walk" video that he is "trying to get a message out there" beyond his orthotropics "bubble," and encourages sharing his ideas with others. In that video he uses the hook about abs to introduce his main thesis about oral posture. I suspect that this Zuckerberg video is deliberately a little provocative in an effort to get more mainstream pick up and attention. He's done other videos about celebrities like Julia Roberts, Jude Law, and Brad Pitt. I think it is interesting to look at these faces that everyone is familiar with and analyze how their features comport with our understanding of facial form. Avoiding sleep apnea is definitely one of my main motivations because many of my family members have apnea or upper airway resistance that will develop into apnea as they age. Before I changed my oral posture I would even catch myself snoring occasionally. So, is it rude to publicly pick apart people's flaws? Maybe, but these celebrities are public figures who make a lot of money by putting themselves out there for attention, so I don't really have a problem with critiquing their appearance for educational purposes.
Mew even says in one of his videos that his main goal here is an expanded market via adults.
This is of course a respectable aim, but I'm doubtful whether his approach to marketing is beneficial in his position. He is already looked as a semi-quack by the mainstream medical community. Videos like this easily enforce this view, making him appear like a substanceless con-artist looking for a quick buck. Which would be a shame, because he seems like a good-willing individual.
A better way for him at the moment would be showing more results, going deeper into the theory through realistic and practical (= not overselling) approaches, and being more available to his followers. The most significant aspect about Orthotropics is: its principles are sound. They are based on truthful reality. A practice that is developed upon fundamental truths will always become more widespread over time by the virtue of people verifying it to be truth themselves. He only has to appear sane and show people that his way truly works. Time will take care of the rest.

For research and dissemination I will be collecting in this community the adult expansion, cranial adjustment, NCR, and face-pulling results. I implore our community users to keep accurate records for themselves and others; these can include dental/palate impressions, before/after pictures, X-Rays and 3D scans.
The purpose of this collection is for use as evidence for theories proposed here. This collection will only be re-posted on this community and will not be submitted anywhere else.
For those looking into expansion and movement in the near future, please consider keeping records for your own sake and for others. Pictures of dental impressions alone can be very helpful.
If you have successfully completed any expansion/movement of facial bones and have any of the above records, please submit them to the community with your personal story of what you did and what the results were (use multiple posts if necessary). Palate expansion, Maxilla movement up and forward, development of the orbital rims, zygomatic, and mandible / jawline are of specific interest. Please ensure that pictures are taken with the same angle, distance, and lighting: This will allow the community to see sharper jawline, higher cheekbones, decrease in dark circles under eyes, changes in nose shape, a more oval face, and improved symmetry.
If you wish to share anonymously, please send me a personal message and we will arrange an anonymous transfer. If you do not have any records to share, your personal experience is also very valuable. Please tell us what you have done and what the results were.
Your input could help many, many people
