I live in the desert at high altitude so if I don’t wear a large brim hat the skin doctor wants to keep removing parts of my face due to skin cancer. I have several old dirty cowboy hats. I wear them daily and they look like it. I keep one kinda of cleaned up so when we go to town it doesn’t look I just got off a horse and fell in a cow pie. Gotta have a chin strap or the wind just carries them off so I tie a leather shoe lace with a chin slip wood bead. Keeps the stupid thing on my head when I’m high tailing it up the canyons in my Rhino. Someone the other day was admiring my unique chin bead, wanted to know where I got my chin slip, Told them, found a piece of wood next to the road, just happened to have a hole it so I carved it down to fit my hat. Could be a petrified turd for all I know? The good news is that it does ‘t smell and keeps me from having to turn around and search for the darn thing. You can always tell a newbie to the desert, they have a baseball cap on and the top of their ears are fried red! Rednecks???? never seen one of those around here, they are either brown because they have a broad brim hat on or peeling because they are to stupid to come out of the sun.
Am I meant to hold the tongue pushing up on the palate for the whole 10 seconds before doing another sweep swallow?
Am I meant to take breaths between each 10 second interval or am I expected to be able to breathe while doing the exercise?
Am I doing them right?
Dr. Mew says that the tongue should be balancing the pressure exerted by the jaw muscles, is this in everyday life when the tongue is in correct resting position exerting a light force, or during the exercise when the tongue is being pushed into the palate, or both? Should I be clenching my teeth? Because he says that the jaw muscles should be activated while just out of contact while doing the exercise but mine never are regardless of how much I try.
He says that the posterior third of the tongue should always be exerting some force on the soft palate but if mine ever is, I can hardly breathe, does it become easier over time? Is that what the exercises are intended for?
