Eye Twitching

Posted Sep 14 2008 3:54pm

I have a complex client who has had an eye twitch for a long time. We have tried nutrition, e-stim and nothing seems to work. As well, she is on progesterone cream for her hormones.

Well, here are my thoughts:

  1. Try Neuromuscular Therapy on the eye. Find someone who can get in there to release the extrinsic muscles of the eye (superior/inferior/lateral/medial recti, inferior/superior oblique). If one is too short, when used it will spasm because it cannot shorten anymore.
  2. As well, the certain nerve innervations (ophthalmic branch of the trigeminal nerve) can get entrapped with TMJ dysfunction.
  3. Get some acupuncture: Eye Lid flickering, is due to wind from either internal or external wind. This time of year, there is a lot of “wind” pathogen within the seasons.Causes and herbs:
    Heart and Spleen Deficiency - Gui Pi Tang or Si Quan Da Bu Tang
    Liver Wind - Tian Ma Gou Teng Yin
    External Wind Invasion - Gui Gan Long Mu Tang
  4. Our eyes are correlated to the liver in TCM and spiritually are related to the reality that we see. If one is not happy with their reality or are trying to use emotions, judgements, etc to smoke screen their own bullshit, that is when you start to see people having issues with their eyes. I would recommend them to a spiritual counselor ( www.journeysofwisdom.com and ask for John McMullin) to aid with this issue.

Research by Peate and Seyle showed that almost every cell in the body has receptor sites for estrogen. So if one is estrogen dominant, besides the common things, you can also see muscle twitching.I have found that using oral bio-identical progesterone works better than dermal for many reasons.1. It enters the blood stream immediately, where dermal takes time. Everyone has different thickness of skin and layers of subcutaneous fat.2. It does not have to bypass the liver to get broken down. It enters the body and is turned into chylomicrons and is absorbed by the body immediately. Where dermal cream does bypass the liver and most gets excreted.3. You can dose oral very easily, where dermal is hard to dose. How much is actually in the squirt that you put on your hand?4. Most creams contain toxic solvents and are not bio-identical.I have worked with many women who were unsuccessful with the cream. I am not saying that some do not get success, but from my experience more do not than do. Just some more food for thought!
