One manner of treatment for Blepharospasm patients has been the use of drugs. Overall
these have brought about limited success and cases of severe side effects.
The “treatment of choice” had been injections into the muscles around the eyelids of botox
(botulinum toxin). This temporarily weakens the muscles that force the closure. The effects
wear off after several weeks or months and repeated injections are required.
The most radical approach is surgery. Myectomy is the most common. It involves the partial
or full removal of the squeezing muscles around the eyes. This is a last resort for those
whose attempts at drug and botox have failed.
Deep brain stimulation is another surgical choice. It involves the implantation of a medical
device called a brain pacemaker that sends electrical impulses to specific parts of the brain.
Other treatments include bio-feedback, acupuncture, hypnosis, relaxation techniques,
chiropractic, and nutritional therapy.
Oddly enough, I am a non-suffering sufferer because of the last choice of treatments on
the list, nutritional therapy.
I found a natural nutritious food and whole food supplements that really helped. Within six
weeks, I was symptom-free. It is now 16 years later and I am still near symptom-free. It is
safe, as determined by my study at Johns Hopkins and the several thousands who have
used it for better health over the last twenty five years.
I can be your personal wellness coach and help you have a healthier future.
