Blepharospasm - 4 Ways to Treat

Updated: Feb 16

Blepharospasm or "twitching of the eye areas" is typically caused by a deficiency in magnesium.

Treatments include:

  1. Neurotoxin injections to freeze the muscles causing the spasm.

  2. Magnesium supplements

  3. Earing a banana daily (we know, so simple)

  4. IV nutrient infusion

Neurotoxins such as botox brand will work the fastest typically, but also come with the most risk. Eyelid droop can happen due to the proximity to the muscles that hold the eyebrow in place (orbicularis muscle group)

The best treatment is magnesium supplements either through bananas or a store bought supplement brand.

We hope this article helps shed some light on Blepharospasm treatments and causes.

Stay Well!
