Does Botox for your bladder actually work?

(NaturalNews) The latest, cutting edge treatment for overactive bladder is to kill it with botulinum toxin. Actually it is not so new, but the rage for using it for overactive bladder is growing. So if your bladder is acting up more than pleases you, then get even with it by poisoning your bladder with deadly toxins. That will teach it to give you symptoms.

The truth is that for women, only about one in three experience relief from the Botox bladder injection. But one in six went from having an overactive bladder to having difficulty urinating at all. Some of these victims now temporarily rely on self-catheterization for underactive bladder relief. Couple this teeny little trouble with the rate of urinary infections skyrocketing three times along with all the other pesky effects to deal with including constipation, dry mouth, and blurred vision and this makes Botox for overactive bladder a no-brainer.

A mere 31 percent of the women reported a positive outcome for Botox treating an overactive bladder.

A pinch of poison

Botox is a drug derived from the deadly Clostridium botulinum bacteria. Ever heard of botulism food poisoning? Make no mistake, this stuff is poisonous and the worst "side effects" of botulism and Botox is death or paralysis. Medical science uses small amounts of this bad bac as a muscle relaxant. In reality it is muscle paralysis. Botox injected into muscles blocks the nerve signals to the brain.

Botox is now used as medical treatment for headaches, gummy smiles, boob jobs, wrinkle freezing, cerebral palsy, prostate treatment, pancreas disorders, strabismus, blepharospasm, sweating, cervical dystonia, bruxism and more. The main drawback is, even when done perfectly, the treatments only last about six months or fewer and you are right back where you started (but sometimes worse off).

Big Pharma - Business as usual

Allergan is the Big Pharma company behind Botox. The feds say the makers producing this neurotoxic poison broke the law and marketed Botox for unapproved uses, leaving a trail of fraud and kickbacks along the way. In September 2010, Allergan agreed to pay $600 million to resolve criminal and civil penalties for unlawful promotions. The paltry $600 million settlement they paid is pennies compared to the analyses predictions that the approval of Botox for migraines alone could cause sales to approach a billion dollars a year.

The little neurotoxin that could

During World War II, the U.S. began researching biological weapons, including botulinum toxin. One plan was to have Chinese prostitutes slip botulinum pills into the food and/or drink of high-ranking Japanese officers. In 2005, the FDA reported that Botox had resulted in 28 reported deaths. In 2008, the FDA announced that Botox has "been linked in some cases to adverse reactions, including respiratory failure and death," due to its ability to spread to areas distant from the site of the injection." In 2009, more warnings came out stating that the effects of the botulinum toxin may spread from the area of injection to other areas of the body, causing symptoms similar to those of botulism like muscle weakness, swallowing difficulties, pneumonia, speech disorders and breathing problems. A later study showed that Botox causes a cognitive blindness to information about the emotions of other people.

Overactive bladder? Find the cause and fix it

Our medical madness in America is all about looking good, treating symptoms, ignoring causes and shortcutting mother nature everywhere we think we can get away with it. Bottom line, overactive bladder is just a symptom of other problems that need to be addressed, like acidosis, gluten intolerance, dysbiosis and bad diets that include sugary, flavored drinks out the wazoo.

Besides, ever seen a Botox treatment gone bad? (Does Joan Rivers swearing off Botox come to mind?)
