Additional Information From Q & A sessions about Blepharospasm / Hemifacial Spasms Included below are some Q & A sessions between me and another person seeking helps from me for the chronic Blepharospasm and Hemifacial Spasm disorders of her mother living in India. And I hope that the extra information included in the Q & A webpage below will turn out to be useful to you. Thank you. Original Questions - First Session : "Dear sir, I'm residing in india->tamil nadu->madurai city. My mother has been suffering HFS for around 9 years.she has the twitching in the right eye and the right corner of her mouth also twitches along and the right side has turned dark. she has been taking medicines for all these years.Now she has used Botox injections for three times within a span of 3 months interval.some relief was found in the first two injections and the third was not satisfactory. surgical methods are not 100% guaranteed and some websites say the patients lose hearing or eyesight.

My Reply : Well, first of all, when you have mentioned, HFS, I belive that you are actually referring to Hemifacial Spasms. For your information, what you have described to me are also the most of the things that I have gone through before 5 years back when I was having the medication / Tardive Dyskinesia-induced Hemifacial Spasm - especially the eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking for countless times in a split second when it got worst (and at the same time, my mouth was badly twisted apart from having the twitchings). Besides, among the numerous others who have sought helps from me to deal with their similar eye-related disorders, well, most of the Hemifacial Spasms disorders are actually caused by the neurological and neuromuscular side effects of certain medications. Well, I have tried Botox as temporary reliefs (3- 6 months' period each) for each therapy session) for my chronic rapid non-stop eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking. However, it's actually not a conclusive solution to the related disorders. Whilst at the same time, I would also like to inform you and the others that the Botox medications are actually composed mainly of Botulinum toxin which 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 http://wcbstv.com/seenon/botox.fda.injections.2.637330.html http://www.resource4defectivedrugs.com/topics/botox.html In respect of your inquiries, I would gladly like to give you the following details for your further references and clarifications : Excerpt From The Original Question : "1) Is the backside of the right hand palm the only point to treat or any other points to include.if any please mention it with or without a diagram ?" My Answer : As to this question, please refer to the diagram included in the weblink below : http://curezone.com/upload/Art/Animation/Attachment_File.gif Besides, there are also other acupuncture points that are related as well as cures for such eye-related problems. However, most of them are actually situated at the vulnerable parts around one's eyes. And hence, my opinion is that those acupuncture points wouldn't not be that suitable for the purpose of self-administered treatments. Apart from that, as far as Hemifacial Spasms disorder is concern (which affects the mouths and other parts of one's face etc), by applying blunt-pointed-object-mild-pressings onto that "He Gu" acupuncture point, which is located on the wrist of one's hands (both left and right), it would actually generate a reflexology stimulus around one's entire face (rather than the eyes alone). As such, I believe that it is thus a safe and practical acupuncture point for Hemifacial Spasm disorders, especially the chronic uncontrollable non-stop eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking. And in particular, for self-administered treatments. Excerpt From The Original Question : "2) How many days of acupuncture treatment needed ?" My Answer : Well, that would depend on how serious is the Hemifacial Spasm disorders of your mother, especially the rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking problems, as well as how long she has suffered from it right from the very beginning. As such, please refer to the detailed descriptions of the self-administered needleless free-of-charge acupuncture / technique / cure for non-stop persistent rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking as included below : - http://www.curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1233341#i Honestly speaking, I obtained tremendous reliefs on the very next day after the acupuncture treatment (my abnormal eyelid-twitchings / eye-blinkings stopped completely). Whilst for the far less serious cases (non-Tardive Dyskinesia cases), most of them would just experience the effects within hours after applying that acupuncture technique. Whilst for the really and extremely serious ones, (the ones who have been suffering really chronically from such disorders for many years, eg. nine years - please refer to the original question above) , it would usually take 5 - 10 days for them to obtain the desired reliefs from that acupuncture technique in the very first place, and then, one would need to continue applying that acupuncture technique consistently and daily (for weeks / a few months' time) in order to get fully-cured once-and-for-all in the end.. Excerpt From The Original Question : "3) Where in the world can i have the best acupuncture treatment.if in india it would be more easier for frequent visits ?" My Answer : As a matter of fact, for some reasons my skins are extremely sensitive to the conventional prolonged needle-piercing therapy of acupuncture. And since that therapy is not that suitable for me, the acupuncturist attending to me is kind enough to impart to me a simple needleless acupuncture method (without using needles at all) to enable me to deal with my Hemifacial spasms / rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking problems. And well, since the acupuncture technique can be praciticed on one's own, it's thus a free-of-charge cure. So, given that I'm a part-time social worker working for the health cares of others, i thus feel that it's a part of my vocations to recommend this self-administered needleless acupuncture technique to the ones who need it. As such, please refer to the story behind the suggested self-administered acupuncture technique for abnormally rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking described above http://www.curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1386471#i Besides, there are in fact many people all around the world seeking helps from me through emails ever since the beginning of 2008 for their chronic eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking problems, especially the medication-induced ones. Frankly speaking, for those areas like the ones in middle-east, and unfortunately India and the countries surrounding it, there are hardly any acupuncture clinics / treatments available (based on what they have told me). And so, I hope that the self-administered acupuncture technique will be helpful to your mother in totally solving her problems once and for all, just like the numerous others who have totally recovered once-and-for-all from such chronic disorders. Excerpt From The Original Question : "4) Is there any diet restrictions that can control the twitching ?" My Answer : Well, there are certainly causes that lead to such muscle twitchings. They could be due to the neurological / neuromuscular side effects of certain medications, excessive caffeine intakes, overstraining of the eyes etc. Naturally, it would be in the best interest of the ones suffering from such disorders to make a clean break with the causes leading to such disorders. However, in the case of medication / Tardive Dyskinesia-induced chronic eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking, a switch to the better and more advanced medications with far lesser Tardive Dyskinesia / Hemifacial Spasms side effects would be quite an option (given that one may still need the related medications to deal with the other related disorders, and in my case, I switch from Risperdal to Seroquel after getting completely cured from the Hemifacial Spasm / chronic rapid non-stop eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking disorders). Excerpt From The Original Question : "5) Can there be 100% cure by acupunture method ?" My Answer : Actually, in the case of me and the numerous others who get totally cured once-and-for-all for those disorders through the self-administered acupuncture technique, we have taken MRI, CT-Scannings and other related medical examinations before. And these medical examinations actually show nothing abnormal at all. And in fact, for the medication / Tardive-dyskinesia induced hemifacial spasms / rapid eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking, currently there are no medical examinations that would be able to conclusively and definitely detect and diagnose the interferrences of medications onto the synaptic activities of the neurotransmitter chemicals / neurons that are widely distributed in our miscellaneous bodily nervous systems to the point of muscle spasm / neuromuscular disorders . So, my comment is that, if your mother's medical scenario actually falls into the category that I have described above, well, then I believe that there is quite a good chance that she will get fully recovered once and for all from her disorders through applying that suggested self-administered, free-of-charge, needlleless acupuncture technique consistently and daily. Excerpt From The Original Question : "6) Is there any home remedies to control twitching ?" My Answer : Well, that is actually not to my knowledge. Whilst the logic behind the self-administered needleless acupuncture cure is such that, well, since the related muscle-twitchings are caused by certain "contaminating agents", such as the undesirable remnants of certain medications that antagonize the normal functionings of the neurotransmitter chemicals (especially dopamine which is responsible for all the human body physical movements), then, getting rid of them from the related nerves around the twitching muscles (eyes / facial muscles) through the acupuncture treatment is thus the most direct and effective way of dealing with such neuromuscular / muscle-twitching disorders and to stop the related muscle twitchings. Original Questions - Second Session : "First of all i would like to thank you for your answers.I found your problem being more severe than my mom and really glad that you are fully recovered. The information was very useful. some of the doubts my dad wants to clarify : 1.As you had twitching a countless times in a split second,its more serious than my mothers case,how many days or months did it take to recover completely.This would help me to calculate the recovering time for my mom. 2.Even after cure are you still continuing the acupuncture treatment these days. Thank you." My Reply : Thanks for the feedbacks. As such, I hope that my replies as follows will clear your doubts about the questions you have asked. Excerpt From The Original Question : "1) As you had twitching a countless times in a split second,its more serious than my mothers case,how many days or months did it take to recover completely ?" My Answer : Well, actually I suffered from such chronic rapid uncontrollable eyelid-twitching / eye-blinking and other Hemifacial Spasms symptoms (from the Tardive Dyskinesia side effects of certain medications) for about more than one year. And eventually when I was instructed with that self-administered needleless acupuncture technique as a cure for all these neurological / neuromuscular disorders, it actually took me about 2 months' time exercising that acupuncture technique consistently and daily (in my case, 2 continuous hours / day) to enable me to get totally cured once-and-for-all in the end. Remark From The Original Person - Please refer to the Original Question Above : "This would help me to calculate the recovering time for my mom" My Reply : Honestly speaking, out of so many people seeking helps from me for their similar related disorders of different degrees of severities , well, for the mild and short-term cases (less than 6 months), some of them would totally recover once-and-for-all within weeks. Whilst for the really serious ones, especially those suffering from the like-disorders for many years (eg.nine years as mentioned in the paragraph above), it would certainly take about a few months' time applying that acupuncture technique consistently and daily for a final, complete and once-and-for-all recovery to be achieved in the end. All in all, that would actually depend on the healing progress of the individual people suffering from such disorders. In this regard, based on my personal experience as well as the feedbacks I have received from the ones seeking helps from me, it's such that once that self-administered needleless acupuncture technique is proven to be effective for them in the very first place, exercising them subsequently and consistently would then just serve the next-steps and the other purposes of reducing the muscle twitchings progressively (in terms of the really serious cases), to just prevent the related muscle-twitchings from coming back after the curative effects have taken place for the very first time (just like what me and some othes have experieced), and then, to get such disorders gradually and totally cured (in a realistic and practical way - please refer to my preceding post above) once and for all in the end. Excerpt From The Original Question : "2) Even after cure are you still continuing the acupuncture treatment these days ?" My Answer : For your information, for me and the numerous others who have been suffering from the similar disorders, we would not need to exercise that acupuncture technique anymore once we are totally cured once and for all from them. As for my case, I no longer need to exercise that acupuncture technique anymore after I have achieved full and once-and-for-all recovery for the disorders ever since 5 years back. And well, the reasoning behind this is that, there is no relapse at all of such disorders at all ever since I get totally cured once and for all, and given that my pair of eyes are just as normal and healthy as and to any other people (I mean for anyone I meet), I simply need not do anything for those disorders / symptoms that have disappeared completely. Lastly, I would wish a speedy and full recovery for your mother's like-disorders and good luck.
