Botox the Anti-Beauty Poison

Updated: Aug 25, 2020

Instant or Natural?

I recently had questions about why one should undergo a series of acupuncture treatments, when they could just get Botox & the line they were worried about, would be instantly gone?

Botox masks who you really are….

Botox is indeed effective & instant. It lasts 3-6 months after it is injected. It is the most common cosmetic procedure in the US; a reported 6 million procedures per year in 2003, growing to 14.6 million per year in 2012. That equals billions of dollars in sales. Botox was approved around 2003 for injection to treat facial wrinkles, mainly the lines between the brows. It quickly became the magic elixir for Hollywood stars & housewives alike.

Toxins don’t fit into beauty or healthy living…

Botox, Vistabel, Botox cosmetic, Dysport, Bocouture, Xeomin, Myobloc are all names used for Botox. But what is it really? It is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum or botulinum toxin, found growing in soil. Yes, I said bacteria & neurotoxin. Just one gram of botulinum toxin could kill over a million people; two kilograms could kill the entire human population of Earth!

Botox jumps from cell to cell, moving the toxin all over the body…
