Botox Injections For Blepharospasm - My Opinions

Botox Injections For Blepharospasm / Hemifacial Spasms - My Opinions



As a matter of fact, I have received 3 therapy sessions of Botox injections from a neurosurgeon for my chronic medication-induced involuntary uncontrollable non-stop rapid eyelid-twtiching / eye-blinking at a very exorbitant cost of U.S 5000 dollars each from an expensive private medical centre located in my home country (one of the less-developed ones in Asia) before I have actually got it gradually and totally cured once and for all in the end through acupuncture treatment (an alternative-instrument-aided self-administered one - please refer to the weblinks below for further information).


The remark below is a quotation from someone else :

'Long-term therapy with botulinum toxin is sometimes associated with therapy failure following repeated injections of the neurotoxin, presumably due to specific antibody production.'


My reply :

Well, the general medical rule is such that human body would tend to get used / immunized to whatever similar medications fed to it over the long-term in such a way that when such immunization actually takes place, the recipients of such medications would then not be able to respond in the 'effectively intended' way to acquire the desired medical effects from such medications. So, I think that's the reason why Botox would fail in the case you have described.


Well, to be really frank with you, I have never considered Botox injections to be a permanently conclusive and totally practical cure for such chronic non-stop eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking and other Hemifacial Spasms disorders.


In regard of Botox injections for eyelid twitching problem / Hemifacial Spasms, such toxin-based medication would just serve to sort of 'half-paralyse' the eyelid / facial muscles to reduce such twitchings / tics without being able to do anything curative to the problematic nerves around the non-stop twitching eyelid / facial muscles that cause such muscle-twitchings / tics problems. Besides, each Botox injection would work for just 3-6 months and after that one would very probably need to get another injection one after another indefinitely in regard of such a treatment to continue to get the similar muscle-paralysing healing effects.


Next, in regard of the Botox injections applied onto the facial muscles, one would very likely develop such undesired side effects as paralysed facial muscles, droopy eyelids (in certain cases) etc when one gets such Botox injections over the long-term after quite a number of years.


Subsequently, even though newer and newer versions of Botox injections composed possibly with different combinations of medical contents would tend to be invented from time to time nowadays to overcome such 'immunization effects' of the ones of the older versions received regularly by its regular users, I am nevertheless in the opinion that such a group of persons are actually running a risk of suffering eventually from the potentially unknown side effects of such different versions of Botox medications, which can be really disastrous when the side effects of such medications just 'manifest all of a sudden'.


As to the acupuncture treatment administered onto the "He Gu" acupuncture point (the one located on one's wrist and is effective in treating the facial nerves especially the eyelids - please refer to the diagram added in related posts made in the weblinks below), the underlying mechanism, as explained to me by the acupuncturist dealing with my eyelid twitching sickness was such that it would gradually purge the dopamine-disturbing / other neurotransmitters chemical-disrupting toxins that cause all such eyelid / facial twitchings, tics and spasms out of one's body, and hence actually help restore the bodily chemical balances to enable a person to get totally cured once and for all in the end. Next, that's exactly the healing and curative benefits that I had acquired and subsequently the ones having the similar eyelid-twitching problems in my real life and to whom I recommended such alternative instrument-aided self-administered acupuncture method (which involves the use of a blunt-pointed object such a normal writing pen which is out-of-ink etc and pressing using just mild force onto the very surface of that acupuncture point, and hence is safe-and-convenient-to-apply considering every single aspect of the methodology) had also get cured and carried on living a normal life getting back everything they lost previously due to such debilitating sickness especially their jobs to continue earning a living to survive on and provide a decent life for their families.


All in all, my opinion is such that it's always better to solve any problems once and for all by dealing directly with their root causes rather than through indefinitely indirect methods of 'interceptions' that will be potentially hazardous over the long-term for the ones suffering from them.

Medical References For Botox Injections



Please refer to the information from the website as follows which gives the intended readers especially the prospective and current users an overview about the Botox injections which are composed mainly of Botulinum toxin. For your further information, Botox Injections are actually medical derivatives from Clostridium botulinum bacterium (which causes botulism) that have been intentionally abused before for the purpose of chemical warfare owing to its intense toxicity.

Once again, I hope that the information given so far will be useful to the intended readers. Thank you.

One More Ugly Truth About Botox Medications

Postby eowc » Tue May 26, 2009 9:19 pm

One More Ugly Truth About Botox Medications



"Group seeks Botox warning following 16 deaths"


"Wrinkle drug reports showed toxin spread inside body after injection"





In terms of Botox medications / injections that I have mentioned before in my prior post, please consider the follow-up below :



"For your further information, Botox Injections are actually medical derivatives from Clostridium botulinum bacterium (which causes botulism) that have been intentionally abused before for the purpose of chemical warfare owing to its intense toxicity.


http://www.answers.com/topic/botox


and now, please consider the following weblink below :


http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22824345/wid/11915773?GT1=10815


(Please take note that the weblink mentioned above may be totally banned and closed down anytime subsequently by the related authorities for the purpose of further complete cover-ups of any commercially-unfavourable public information and coverage)



Next, apart from finding the 2 shocking headlines of :



"Group seeks Botox warning following 16 deaths"


"Wrinkle drug reports showed toxin spread inside body after injection"




the main contents of this report have just "gone missing" with the explanation :



" The page you are seeking has expired and is no longer available at msnbc.com."



Well, apparently the information carried by that news / report was "profitably undesirable / unfavourable / damaging" to the popular images of the Botox medications, and hence, they are deleted and suppressed by the authorities.



Now, let's consider the following naked truth : -



"Governmental monopoly", or rather tenacious grips on the health care industries



So, can anyone just tell me that how can such potentially deadly Botox medications and other possibly the other hazardous drugs be continually and unimpededly approved by the government-run Food And Drugs Administration (FDA), and then be widespreadly and pervasisvely promoted and marketed to the general public, and at the same time, with the actual medical facts of the deadly contents of such medications to be intentionally and insidiously withhheld from their buyers and consumers ?




And has the government been playing fair by doing this way ?




And the realistic goals of money-seeking and profit-maximisation at the expense of the health cares and human lives of the users of such deadly products / medications would actually make such "policies" fully justified and warranted" ?

"Group seeks Botox warning following 16 deaths" -

Postby eowc » Wed Jun 03, 2009 6:57 am

"Group seeks Botox warning following 16 deaths" - Follow-up :




Now, let's consider the following excerpts about Botox medications :



"The consumer group Public Citizen says from 1997 to 2006 16 people died from Botox injections, four of them under the age of 18. "




"The report also found that 658 patients suffered adverse effects from Botox and 87 of them had to be hospitalized.

Levine says cosmetic Botox is relatively safe if you have a good doctor, but says as the use of Botulin toxin increases so does the risk for complications.

The FDA would not comment on the report. "

The goals of money-makings and profit-maximisings mean that human lives are actually worthless and fully expendable for those "practical" business / commercial purposes ?

Further Information On Fatalities of Botox Medications / Inj

Postby eowc » Thu Jun 04, 2009 5:19 am

Further Information On Fatalities of Botox Medications / Injections



Please consider the following excerpts about the fatalities of Botox Medications / Injections :


"Aspiration Pneumonia a Botox Reaction:


Aspiration pneumonia is a serious infection of the lungs that’s the result of inhaling foreign materials, which the lung is unable to expel easily. When the lungs are unable to remove a substance, fluid builds up in the lungs and an infection results. Apparently, this condition is linked to Botox injections because minute particles of the substance in Botox is finding its way into patients’ lungs.


^ Back To Top


Partial Paralysis from Botox Injections:


The second side effect that’s allegedly linked to Botox injections is partial paralysis. Although the link has yet to be definitively proven in a full laboratory study, it’s alleged by some that when the Botox injection leaks into such areas as the esophagus, it can lead to partial paralysis, and this partial paralysis is as of now of indefinite duration.


^ Back To Top

Botox Death Reported:


Of the 180 reports tracked by Public Citizen, 16 people died, and four were under the age of 18. Obviously, there is no need to describe this condition, but if you are experiencing muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, slurred speech or droopy eyelids, seek immediate medical attention.


^ Back To Top


Your Next Step if Injured from Botox:


As you see, Botox injections are not completely safe, at least according to Public Citizen and the 87 people who were hospitalized from the 180 who were studied. If you have been injured as a result of a Botox treatment, contact a defective products attorney immediately to schedule an initial consultation. "

Additional Details



"For your further information, for the majority of people seeking helps from me for their Blepharospasm / chronic eyelid twitching / eye blinking disorders, they mostly get such disorders from the negatively disastrous neuromuscular side effects of the related medications with strong neurological side effects that disrupt the normal functionings of the synaptic activities of the neurotransmitters chemicals dopamine of their eye nerves, thus causing all the abnormally rapid eyelid twitchings / eye blinkings. In such a connection, since the neurotransmitters chemicals produced by the nerve cells / neurons are totally transparent while their eye nerves / brain cells (which are tangible, and hence observable to such medical devices / examinations) remain undamaged, the MRI / CT-scannings would thus not be able to show and detect anything abnormal and unusual at all for their Blepharospasm / chronic eye blinking / eyelid twitching disorders, and then almost in all cases, their Blepharospasm / chronic eyelid twithcing / eye blinking disorders would then be labelled "accordingly" as "undiagnosable" / "unexplainable" by the related mainstream medical personnel, and then they are suggested to get surgery / perpetually continual Botox injections to deal with such chronic neuromuscular and visually-incapacitating disorders. Whilst in this case, my suggested totally needle-free acupuncture / acupressure method would work effectively in such scenarios. As such, please refer to : http://www.curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1233341#i (A New Version For The Self-administered, Totally Needle-free, Totally Free-of-Charge, Simple & Painless Acupuncture / AcupressureCure For Non-stop Persistent Rapid Eyelid-twitching / Eye-blinking).




In the meantime, the main themes of my related posts are made purely and 100 % totally for charity purposes completely on humanitarian grounds.



Nonetheless, I still would like to take this opportunity to emphasize that, in terms of medication-induced Tardive Dyskinesia, well, no matter how curatively effective my suggested totally needle-free acupuncture / acupressure cure (as elaborated in great details in the prior posts above) is, as proven by countless and ongoing proven empirical evidences, precaution is always still better than cure itself especially in the case of the small kids / children as well as the fragile and senile old people whose immune systems are far less developed than the grown adults (for small kids / children) and seriously deteriorating (for the fragile and senile old people) on account of certain curative limitations of that suggested totally needle-free acupuncture / acupressure technique as explained in the related prior post above especially the problems with the congenital / genetical Blepharospasm / chronic eyelid twitchings / eye blinkings that are present at births ."




In regard to the excerpts above quoted from one of my recent prior post, I would like to take this opportunity to disclose to you all that, over these few years, for the majority of the persons seeking helps from me for their chronic, rapid, involuntary, uncontrollable eyelid twitching / eye blinking disorders, as well as the numerous others getting cured once-and-for-all through that suggested totally needle-free, free-of-charge, simple acupuncture /acupressure technique / method mentioned above, well, almost all of them get such annoying eye disorders in the very first place from the inevitable muscle-spasms side effects of certain medications. As such, that is also the main reason why there tend to be so many people getting cured once-and-for-all from time to time until now after trying out and self-administering that suggested needle-free acupuncture / acupressure technique / method as instructed.



Unfortunately, though this suggested acupuncture / acupressure technique / method could overcome the particular limitation to deal directly with and remedy the disrupted synaptic activities of the neurotransmitters chemicals dopamine (produced / secreted by nerves and brain cells) to restore their proper functionings, and hence deliver the expected and desirable therapeutical results effectively and obviously, it nevertheless could hardly produce anything curatively effective to deal with the eyelid twitching / eye blinking disorders caused by damaged / destroyed nerves and brain cells due to the very fact that nerves and brain cells cannot regenerate themselves once they are seriously damaged / totally destroyed (that is also the main reason why 100 % complete cure(s) for parkinsonism, dementia, alzheimer etc are still not discovered, found, invented until now) .



Whilst franly speaking, the actual cases of failures of this suggested needle-free acupuncture / acupressure technique / method would often occur and happen among tender-aged small kids / children and senile & fragile old people whose nerves are seriously damaged / destroyed rather than "midly disturbed" as described above about the synaptic activities of the neurotransmitters, almost immediately after taking the related "nerve-disrupting" medications .



As such, given that honesty is the best policy whilst these posts are made purely for charity purposes and mainly on humanitarian grounds as well as given the very fact that this suggested needle-free acupuncture technique / method could hardly deliver any practical cures to help these pitiful kids / children (along with their deeply regretful & heart-broken parents) and senile & fragile old people whose eyes-related nerves have been seriously damaged / destroyed by the strong neurological / neuromuscular side effects of the related medications shortly after taking them, these are especially the key reasons why I have no other choices but to choose to tell such veracious and unvarnished truths and made the related posts as elaborated above to advise and warn about the highly and potentially nerve-damaging side effects / outcomes of such related "nerve-disrupting" medications that would definitely be a matter of serious concern to the tender-aged kids / children whose immune systems are far less-developed compared to the grown adults and the senile & fragile old people whose immune systems are seriously deteriorating, especially when they are unknowingly exposed to such related medications, so as to create a greater level of awareness so that the indispensably necessary medical precautions will be taken to safeguard the medical welfares and well-beings of these 2 groups of persons who are far more vulnerable and susceptible to the potentially disastrous neuromuscular and neurological side effects of the related medications.



In short, these so-called "nerve-disrupting" side effects of such related medications (applicable to the fully grown adults) may just turn out to be / produce nerve-damaging outcomes for these tender-aged kids / children & senile and fragile old people after they take such related medications. Whilst the subsequent consequences are definitely unthinkable once such undesirable and unexpected nerve-damaging scenarios just occur and manifest all of a sudden.



Whilst the other limitations of this suggested needle-free acupuncture technique / method would actually occur under unusually rare and uncommon circumstances that could generally be summarised as follows : -



A ) It could hardly deal with genetical / congenital eyelid twitching / eye blinking disorders that are present at births, such as the one caused by Tourette syndrome etc.



B ) The "He Gu" acupoint maybe is not applicable to the the particular eyelid twitching / eye blinking disorders caused by other reasons such as the ones manifest as one of the symptoms of damaged bodily organs etc. However, unlike the medication-induced eyelid twitching / eye blinking disorders caused by disruptions to the synaptic activities of the neurotransmitters chemical dopamine which are unobservable and then "declared accordingly" as "undiagnosable" by any medical examinations like MRI / CT-scannings etc such as the reasonings elaborated in the prior posts above, such other causes are usually detectable, observable and diagnosable through various medical scrutinies and examinations. And hence, appropriate medical treatments can be adminstered to deal with the related eye disorders under such circumstances.
