Do you use both sides of the jaw when you eat?
Saliva is produced when you lightly push the inner groove of the jaw bone with you thumb under the chin. But some of you may feel pain there when you push. This pain is usually more intense on one side than the other. This means you probably use only that side of your jaw when you chew, or use only that side of your throat when you swallow chunks of food. To decrease this tension, you must make sure to chew with both sides of your jaw.
