Is there anybody who tried BOTOX for eye blinking ?

 

I found there some new ones who are claimed to be better than botox . no injection needed .

 

for example :

www.amazon.com/exec/obido...6?v=glance

 

or google "better than botox"

 

If it's true , I just think we can use it to relax our musle to reduce tics ?! any thoughts ?

 

Thanks.

Oh my gosh! Can you imagine feeling like you needed to blink your eyes but then couldn't because of the Botox?? I think that would be far worse!

 

Plus, as Chemar said, it is a POISON. We would all do well to stay away from known poisons. There's enough garbage in our systems as it is.

I tried Botox injections before to deal with my non-stop eye-blinking sickness. At first, it did reduce the blinkings of my eyes to a great extent. But once the effect of each injection (which last 3 - 6 months each) lost totally, the eye-blinking symptom would just come back, for the very fact that Botox medication would just sort of 'half-paralyse' the muscles around the blinking eyes without doing anything curative to the nerves around the eye organ that control its 'eyelid movements'.

 

One more thing is that Botox medication tends to get immunized by the human body, and it thus would mean that larger and larger dosage of such medication would be required for each following injection therapy to achieve a similar healing effect of the prior ones. And the neurosurgeon who have attended to me did suggest to me a surgical treatment to treat my non-stop eye-blinking, but it is actually a very risky choice, as its failure may bring blindness to me whilst its successful outcome would not totally or 100% get my non-stop eye-blinking sickness cured once and for all.

 

Actually, having sought so much alternative treatments for my non-stop eye-blinking, I eventually get it totally cured through acupunture treatment (a self-administered one) as instructed by a licensed acupuncture physician.

I was just curious about how you found an acupuncturist to show you how to administer self-treatment. My son's started blinking his eyes more than usual, aggravated by t.v. or video games, but not always. Could you describe what it involves, and who to go to? Thanks

I would urge extreme caution at attempting self acupuncture and would *highly recommend* rather going to a qualified clinical acupuncture therapist and letting them perform the placement of needles. they are trained and certified and this is not something that can be done as trial and error :( .

 

my son has always had tremendous benefit from acupuncture...but I would be very cautious of this being referred to as a complete "cure" for eye blinking TICS, especially TS blinking tics

 

JMHO :D

First of all, thanks for taking an interest in the acupuncture treatment recommended in this website that I have tried before to finally & totally get my non-stop eye-blinking sickness cured.

 

In fact, I have posted some articles on the acupuncture methods in certain websites over the net and my confidence in the effectiveness of this acupuncture technique that I recommend is built upon the very fact of the final recovery (which can be observed within weeks & a few months ) of dozens of such people in my real life over the past few years who have suffered persistently from such non-stop eye-blinking problems, especially the ones who get this sickness in the first place from the muscle spasms side effects of certain medication, long-term emotional traumas that affect their central nervous system etc, who in turn get almost an observable obvious immediate relief (within a few days time), of which I have witnessed these myself, from the acupuncture method I recommend personally to them.

 

Actually these people shared almost the same painful experience as me from such debilitating sickness and for your information, there were many of them who were not so well-to-do, and hence they could not afford such expensive medical bills of seeing the medical specialists or to get Botox injections / surgical treatment to deal with their non-stop eye blinking problems. Therefore, when I recommended such an acupuncuture technique to them, I did it out of charity, sympathy and compassion, and thank God that it worked on each and everyone of them.

 

Since I am not belonging to the medical field or an acupuncturist myself, I thus would not know whether such an acupuncture technique would actually work in the case of genetical eye blinking sickness, and honestly speaking, out of so many people to whom I have personally recommended that acupuncture treatment, I have not yet come across any of such cases before. Nevertheless, I am pretty sure that most of the people with non-stop eye blinking problems actually get this sickness from other post-birth causes rather than genetically, and I believe that once the acupuncture point is clearly identitified, the recommended technique would work effectively to provide reliefs to the ones suffer from post-birth causes-induced non-stop eye blinking sickness.

 

 

However, I still have to admit that although I have recently received some reply emails from the intended readers who say that this acupuncture technique actually works effectively on them to deal with their non-stop eye blinking problems, I would still strongly advise the ones interested in the acupuncture treatment to seek consultancy about its validity & the very acupuncture treatment for this sickness from the licensed acupuncturist in view of the very fact that I could not personally point out to them the exact location of such acupuncture point.

 

Another thing is that since the ones to whom I have personally recommended such acupuncture treatment for the treatment of non-stop eye blinking sickness are actually all grown adults, the "1.5 cm measure" mentioned in these articles mentioned above would thus definitely not be applicable to the young children whose hand structures are naturally very much smaller. Next, given that the skin textures of small children tend to be very much delicate and tender, and hence more fragile than that of the adults, they thus should definitely be attented to by the licensed acupuncturists to deal with their eye blinking problems in the case where they choose this choice of therapy.

 

In addition, I would like to tell you very frankly that in the very first place when I was treated by my acupuncture physician to deal with my own non-stop eye blinking sickness, I was actually annoyed by such needle-based therapy and as a matter of fact, I really feel very uncomfortable with both the prospect and the very circumstance of getting my hand stuck with such acupuncture needles that are pierced right into the flesh through that acupuncture point for such acupuncture therapy. Furthermore, given the fact that his acupuncture clinic is located distant away in the other state from the place I live, I thus have requested him to provide me with an alternative acupuncture method to deal with my eye blinking sickness. And as a matter of fact, that alternative acupuncture method which requires the use of blunt-pointed object rather than sharp-pointed acupuncture needle and involves only pressing (using just mild force) onto the surface of the identified acupuncture point rather than piercing of acupuncture needle right into the flesh, did make me feel a lot more comfortable and mind-easing.

 

Besides, given that I could administer this simple therapy on my own without having to travel all the way to look for the acupuncture physician to get follow-up treatment for my non-stop eye-blinking sickness, it thus tremendously affords me a great deal of flexibility as well as time-and- cost-saving conveniences in helping me to deal with this sickness and get it cured in the end (I personally have applied this therapy for about 2 months and stopped that until now once I get cured.). Thank you.
