"Tomorrow, I begin my fourth week of the program. I am already experiencing some relief. The uncontrollable blinking is just about GONE."
About 4 years ago, I started having excruciating pain in my eyes. Blinking, burning, and uncontrollable closing of my eyelids. The condition was unbearable. I was told it was dry eye, and drops would stop it. After every eye drop on the market, and numerous visits do different doctors, I was diagnosed with blepharospasm. It basically made my life unbearable. I found myself going to bed at 7-8 o’clock just to escape the pain. I tried several things, including injections. Nothing helped. The injections brought some relief, but the side effects were terrible. My fiancé saw your website, and convinced me to call. Tomorrow, I begin my fourth week of the program. I am already experiencing some relief. The uncontrollable blinking is just about GONE. I am functioning much better than I expected in only 3 weeks. Even though I’m not 100%, I am so thankful and optimistic about the future. I will check back in another month. By the way .. I appreciate Steve’s honesty, and his true desire to help people with this horrible condition. God bless.....

"The testimonials have helped us gauge things, as have your excellent guidelines, and encouragement to keep going."
Let me relate today's experience for you: David has had on & off days/times this last entire month, but since this morning, after taking the acidophilus and enzyme, this was the first time he took the two foods of 3 caplets each with his breakfast. He had to meet friends for a job in town and said his eyes were only a slight problem as he drove the 10 miles. His eyes were even less of a problem coming home three hours later for lunch. With his lunch (at 1:45 pm), he again took the enzyme and the two foods. From that point he hasn't experienced any closure at all! I'm writing this letter to you at 8 pm, and his eyes are still fine. He will be taking another 3 of each soon when he eats again. Naturally, we are excited about this!
I'd like to give you a little background on us: It's been almost ten months since David and I have been together (widow and widower), and he's eating, almost exclusively a clean food (organic/non-gmo) diet, as well as clean supplements and personal products. (I'm the health nut, and have been for almost 43 years). All of this has made an excellent difference to his health. A few health highlights: he no longer has high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and has lost three pant sizes (the inflammation caused by his previous dubious and toxic food choices), as well as having greater muscle strength, better eyesight, and excellent gums and teeth. The dystonia is, apparently, a more deep-seated condition, so while we're excited about today's relief, we do not want to be unrealistic.
The testimonials have helped us gauge things, as have your excellent guidelines, and encouragement to keep going. Naturally, David wanted it to clear up the first week, but like you and I explained, that he had been taking in toxins for many long years, and the detoxing will take a bit more time to relieve his body of the most deep-seated poisons than other more superficial conditions. That's the way the body works. I learned a lot in the 43 years of being on clean foods, the results of which were being able to nourish my own body so it could get rid of cancer, and finally, when I learned about the gmo foods, just seven years ago, I got off them immediately and found my body, again, made itself healthy. David is new to this, but is showing himself to be a wonderful and responsive participant. He's delighted that he feels so much better, even at his age of 80! I'm happy to announce that he no longer takes any pharmaceuticals at all, and has greater vitality. How wonderful is that?! Thank you for caring.
Razel - Missouri
For the last two weeks, David's been taking 8 tabs, then up to 10, back to 8, and now at six. Seems like his eyes have been steadily getting better, for longer periods of time. Thank you
for your help.

I've been on the program for over a year. It has changed my life! Before I started on the program, I had horrible bouts of my entire face "scrunching". I couldn't control the spasms. I had been diagnosed with blepharospasm.= and spasmodic dysphonia. I still have occasional problems, mainly when I am tired or stressed, but I feel like I have my life back! Thank you Steve!
Cheryl - Illinois
I am still struggling with blepharospasm, but my digestion is much better, my joint pain is better, my shoulder, that I thought would need rotator cuff surgery, is much improved, my mood is much improved, my dry eye is much improved, and my energy level is over the top! I still believe my eyelids will get better soon. Thank you very much for all your help.
Kathie – North Carolina
Thanks for the advice. I have been taking 6- 3 times a day. I have to say some days my eyes are pretty good. It is only once in a while that I have a problem.

"In the morning I went into the bathroom and looked into the mirror, with 4 bright lights on above the mirror, and I was wide eyed with no blinking."
I started your program 3 months ago, I had a setback for a month in November from the high dosage flu shot. On the 3rd of December we went to Tucson, AZ from Warren Ohio, we are staying until February. Because of the flu reaction, I was only able to do 70% of what you told me to do. I couldn’t read words in a sentence which was another reason I didn’t do things like you told me to do. On the third day I was here in Tucson, I could read then my squinting and blinking stopped. In the morning I went into the bathroom and looked into the mirror, with 4 bright lights on above the mirror, and I was wide eyed with no blinking. I had breakfast this morning, no sunglasses on a sunny day, with the sun shining thru a glass door and a large window taking up 3/4 of the dining room and family room. If it gets no better, I would still be very happy the way my eyes are now.
In November 2014 I got the injections for my blepharospasm and my left eye shut closed for a month, so you can see why I’m happy the way I am today. I took eye drops for dry eyes in Ohio and in Tucson, a dry climate, I stopped using them. Our son, his wife, and my wife, have started on the organic food supplements you recommended for them because they saw how it helped me and now they are improving healthwise also. God bless you.

"I have noticed in the past week that my eyes are feeling a lot better."
I have some important news…… I have noticed in the past week that my eyes are feeling a lot better. I am taking the tablets religiously and at last I do feel there is a benefit. Some days I hardly have noticed the flickering and then others it has been as bad. I now get almost a whole day without any trouble then another day it is just the same as before but basically there is an improvement. I so appreciate your help with this since you know how bad it can be yourself. I know that.

"I plan to continue taking the food because at this time, I feel that it IS controlling my spasms."
First of all, I wish to thank you for your relentless support. I am very thankful.
I was feeling down because I felt that the food was not meeting my expectations. I continue to take the food by manipulating the portions.
I tried taking 12 tabs with each meal but there was no improvement. I got up in the morning with my eyes shut tight and felt hopeless. I changed to taking 12 in the morning, 6 at lunch and 12 before dinner. To my surprise, I woke up with better results.
Last night, I noticed that I haven't been constantly fidgeting with my eyelids. It seems the effects of the food are finally kicking in. Oh, I am not nearly where I want to be however, I can perform tasks or watch TV without pushing my eyelids up. I have apraxia as well as blepharospasm so the spasms may be under control and the apraxia may be what is interfering with my progress.
I plan to continue taking the food because at this time, I feel that it IS controlling my spasms.
My Neuro-Ophthalmologist told me that on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the worst) my condition is a 7. I may need more time to reach a level where I can resume driving.
I will keep you advised of my progress.
Again, I am very very grateful to you for your support, your patience and most of all for your compassion and for sharing your knowledge with all those who need you.

"Most times I forget I even have this condition. I want to encourage others to try it. It has saved my life."
I just wanted to give you an update on my condition since I was first diagnosed with blepharospasm this year. I want my story to possibly help others who struggle with our condition as I am so incredibly grateful.
My symptoms were so severe (with uncontrollable facial movements and blinking) that I was terrified I would not be able to drive, go out to movies, watch TV or even work much longer. My quality of life was declining rapidly and I was not given much hope by the medical community. They said I could get very painful injections that would eventually stop working or start taking medications with negative side effects that may reduce the symptoms. I have watched my mother and grandmother suffer with this condition and their symptoms were never relieved and became progressively worse over time.
I started taking the nutritional food as you instructed in April, 2016. After a few weeks, I noticed a small amount of difference. I continued to increase the dosage but became frustrated with taking so many supplements and not taking them perfectly. Thankfully, I was able to talk to you and you encouraged me to continue and that I didn’t have to be perfect just good enough. At this point, I was experiencing moderate relief (2 months). At 3 months, my symptoms had reduced by 70%. Within 4-5 months they were completely gone. Soon after, I started reducing my dosage and now take 60% less of the supplement and am still symptom free.
Most times I forget I even have this condition. I want to encourage others to try it. It has saved my life.

...more energy to cope with the spasms ... feeling less depression and anxiety, sleeping better and improved digestion...
I have only been on this supplement program for just over a week and I am already feeling positive changes. At first I thought it was just wishful thinking and I couldn't quite believe it, but it is true. It isn't a reduction of spasms, however I have had more energy to cope with them, I'm feeling less depression and anxiety and sleeping better. My digestion has improved and I believe proper digestion is a major key to getting the nutrients to the brain and I have always had issues there. Thank you Steve. You are providing an important service to dystonia sufferers.
Summer - Hawaii
I didn't realize it (was working) until I ran out of it...
Well, I think it was working for my blepharospasm. I didn't realize it until I ran out of it, and the uncontrollable blinking returned. So, I can't wait to receive the product and start using it again to confirm that it was in fact that product that was helping me control the blinking. Thanks.
Letty - California
...never seen my eyes look so good!
I went to my neurologist today, after not getting the injections for 3 months, and she said that she has never seen my eyes look so good! I've been on the program for 7 weeks. Let's hope my progress continues! Thank you for your help!
Cheryl - Illinois
It is a relief to know there is this food that ...helps to alleviate the pesky symptoms.
I am sharing what I wrote to my doctor.
Yes, I agree about absorption, yet must admit there seems to be a benefit directly related to taking the food. My eye irritation lessens, and I don't feel the need to use eye lubricant drops every few minutes. When I forget to take it, the eye irritation increases.
On good days I can cut way back on it, but on bad days, it definitely provides symptom relief, though it doesn't last, so I take a couple of the tablets about every 2 hrs.
The injections do not last either, as we all know, but I had some relief for 4 months since the last treatment.
It is a relief to know there is this food that - as in the case with the injections, may not be a cure -but helps to alleviate the pesky symptoms.
Thanks for your input.

"...happy with the strides I have made - The better diet, better sleep, less tension in my jaw, face and eyes."
Thanks for sending the occasional testimonial and words of encouragement. Here is an update on what has been going on with me. Because I have had symptoms for over 20 years it seems it has taken longer for total relief.
First of all, it was a struggle to get a diagnosis since my eyesight problems were complicated with a lot of things that could be attributed to stress and poor nutrition. When the diagnosis was made, of course they offered injections which I felt were a band aid - not a cure. At one point I could not drive for 2 years because of the spasms. Lights were a trigger to more spasms. Sitting in church was a struggle. It was embarrassing because people thought I was sleeping through the sermon. Natural remedies have been my preference although the acupuncture, chiropractic, and magnetic therapies were a help, but not a cure.
I’ve seen the biggest difference with the program combined with balanced nutrition although I am still fighting the sugar urges. In the last month I have seen more changes. I was beginning to lose confidence that I would be any closer to a cure than I was last year when I started your regimen. I am still seeing a chiropractor/ naturopath, a psychologist (for stress), a dentist who is safely removing my mercury amalgam fillings and a doctor that practices Integrative medicine.
With chiropractic adjustments, we have finally gotten my jaw in alignment, although the left side is so worn from grinding my teeth that the teeth do not meet. The muscles on the left side have atrophied so that I cannot chew my food without physical help. Most people have trouble hearing me because I cannot project my voice. The tongue/chewing/swallowing coordination has improved. I wear an appliance at night to help with the jaw alignment and to prevent jaw gaping.
This has been a slow process, but I see no other solutions. I wish I could say I have been cured but the best I can do is be happy with the strides I have made - The better diet, better sleep, less tension in my jaw, face and eyes. Bright lights still can be a problem, but at least I can drive. Eating at restaurants can be embarrassing especially when the waitress keeps asking if I am okay.
Thanks so much for your part in helping me and others to a better life.
Barbara C. - Illinois
"After four months, my eyes have greatly improved and I feel more confident behind the wheel."
Since I drive for a living, the onset of blepharospasm left me with few options and the injections were not helping. I was looking to change jobs or take an early and meager retirement when I found Steve's program online. After four months, my eyes have greatly improved and I feel more confident behind the wheel. I have lost weight and in general feel healthier as an added bonus. Thank you so much for this life saving program.
Gene - Colorado
"Although the blepharospasm was never 100% gone, I had improved greatly!"
Thank you for making an effort to stay in touch and support me in this process! As this year began and as life, events were happening, I became scattered in maintaining the routine of taking the supplements. Although the blepharospasm was never 100% gone, I had improved greatly! I have not received the injections since the one prior to starting the supplements. I was able to drive long distances to visit family without feeling unsafe or overwhelmed.
I had stopped the automatic delivery of the supplements as I was receiving more than I could use before the next delivery. I started just ordering items as I needed them. However, by late March I had literally laid the supplements to the side completely! I was traveling a lot and welcoming new grand babies into the world, but not remembering to take the supplements with me. Now, I am sensing the return of the blinking especially when I drive, speak publicly, or try to have a conversation with someone face to face. When I get tired, stressed, or have read a lot, they blink more as well.
Even this morning I went to pull out my supplements to see what I had in order to start the process again. So when I saw your email, I knew that was what I needed to do.
I did not get to participate in your last online teaching, but I appreciated the detailed email concerning the basal ganglia information. Thank you for your support and guidance. I am ready to do this again.
Valerie - Georgia
"I do think I'm seeing some benefit."
I thought I'd check in and give you my status. I'm on day 43 now, so I just increased the food. I do think I'm seeing some benefit. I had some pictures taken yesterday and this is normally very difficult for me with all of the flashing bright lights. However, I was able to keep my eyes open most of the time! I do still notice myself blinking too much at times, but it is certainly at least as good as when I was "on" the injections.
Mark - Kansas
"...I'm experiencing relief."
I just wanted to let you know that I've been working with the organic food on your program for a month now, and I'm experiencing relief - more relief than I have experienced since the blepharospasm began in 2009. It has been 6 long and difficult years looking for a solution and finding nothing. I have had more control in the last 2 weeks than ever. I'm not where I want to be just yet but I finally have hope. Thank you. I will keep you updated.
Clayton - Louisiana
"I can control my eyes a little better and the electrical energy and noise in my brain seems to have been reduced."
I understand that this may take up to 6 months and I am committed to the program.
I don’t know if this is coincidence or the effects of the supplements but my symptoms have changed since I started the program. Rather than having uncontrollable twitches and spasms shooting to my face and sometimes through my body, I am now engaged in some kind of 'muscle tango' with my eyes. It is still very hard physical work, distracting and debilitating, but is better than what I had before. The fact is, I can control my eyes a little better and the electrical energy and noise in my brain seems to have been reduced. This can be felt obviously when I lay down to go to sleep. My sleep is still badly affected but it is better than before.
As I said, I’m not sure if I am learning to live with the problem or if the supplements have already started to help, but I am feeling better and feeling more confident that I can beat this. I can say this, for the first time in months things have stopped getting worse.
I will keep you updated with progress.

"Sometimes my eyes clench but they are not blinking like they were when I first had the dystonia."
I haven’t sent you a testimonial yet because I have a lot of things going on. I have had Dystonia for over ten years now and, until I first found you, I was receiving three different sets of injections. I have cancelled all of my appointments and haven’t had anything now for four months. In the case of my eyes and neck it has been 6 months. My face was frozen into this awful mask and I was unable to open my mouth to smile. Quite early on my smile came back and my friends say that it is like getting me back. I don’t know if this is because I’m not having the injections or if the supplements are contributing (they probably are). I am managing to cope with my eyes and neck. Sometimes my eyes clench but they are not blinking like they were when I first had the dystonia.

"I just thought you should know that after only a week of taking these whole food
supplements, my eyes have improved 90%!!"
I just thought you should know that after only a week of taking these whole food supplements, my eyes have improved 90%!! They're still not completely back to normal, but almost, and it’s only been three weeks since I started taking this nutrition. I don't know if you remember, but my eyes were sealed shut for about three months. Thanks again!!
Melissa – Arizona
"I want to thank Steve again for his great efforts and we cannot express how
happy we are that we finally found relief for my father!"
I read about Steve and the whole food supplements coincidently on the Internet and
contacted him directly with regard to my father, who was suffering heavily from
blepharospasm. No other treatment could bring him significant relief and we decided to try Steve's advice. Steve was incredibly supportive and instructed us in great detail. In the first few weeks, my father could not feel a significant improvement, but after approximately 6-7 weeks, during which my father increased the amount steadily, he suddenly felt a significant improvement. He is now able to work without any problems and even do outdoor sports without any problems, which was not possible before. I want to thank Steve again for his great efforts and we cannot express how happy we are that we finally found relief for my father!
Thomas – Austria
"I took the nutrition he recommended for 2 months and my symptoms with
Last year and a half, I had many problems with dry eyes, redness and itchiness of eyes. They were severely dry. The doctor put plugs in my eyes and gave me eye drops, but nothing really helped. At the same time, I started blinking so badly with my right eye. I bought stress relief vitamins, but my blinking increased to both eyes and became very severe. I started avoiding seeing people in the evening because my eyes were red, ill, and blinking. I felt hopeless, miserable and depressed. While driving, I blinked so often, that driving became hazardous for me. While talking to others, I blinked so often and felt so uncomfortable. At home, I blinked so often and felt even uncomfortable for my kids to see me do that.
The doctors couldn't help me. I saw a neurologist, who recommended shots. That was not something I was ready to do. I kept searching for answers. I found Steve's testimonial online. I called him. He was very helpful. I took the nutrition he recommended for 2 months and all of my symptoms with blinking resolved. I feel blessed that there are people like Steve, who share their success. I also started learning a lot about natural herbs and meditation I enjoy it. My dry eyes also resolved after I took out my IUD. From being miserable, my life is now beautiful and nice.
Thank you, Steve, for sharing your success with people. Now I am sharing my successes with others.
Olga – Washington
"I can safely say that I am almost back to normal."
As you are aware I have dystonia which is a very debilitating condition. I was thrilled to find Steve's web site which proposed a healthy option. I wasn't sure that these whole food supplements were going to work, but I was more than prepared to give it a try.
Steve took great time to send me a schedule of recommended amounts to take which I immediately commenced. Now, six months after following the recommendations, I am amazed at how much my condition has improved. I can safely say that I am almost back to normal. I attribute my improvement to the fact that I am taking these whole food supplements. All of the health professionals that I have met told me, it was highly unlikely that my condition would ever go away.
I feel that there are other people who could benefit greatly from taking these whole food supplements. Dystonia is a condition which can strike anyone at any time and has a huge impact on every aspect of daily life. Any ray of hope for sufferers should be advertised as widely as possible. We only have one life, so it's important to help ourselves and others as much as we can.
Caroline – Ireland
I am seeing an improvement in my blepharospasm, and it has only been 4 or 5 weeks on the food. That is good news and thank you.
Barbara – United Kingdom
I hope all is well with you and I thought of updating you as to how things are going.
I had reached the point where I am taking 8 tablets 3 times a day of both foods and all symptoms seem to have gone.
Thank you for your help and support.
Barbara – United Kingdom (update)
"Once again, thanks so much Steve for putting your information on the Internet and I'm so glad I found it. To date my eye and face have stopped spasmming completely - what an awesome feeling."
I started using the products on February 27 and within a month I started seeing results. I had been using the injections since 2008 and the last few months, they did not last the 3 months anymore, it seemed like within a month of having them, my eye and face started spasmming.
In May 2011 when I saw a neurologist, I was told I had blepharospasm and that's what's causing the spasms. This started 3 years prior in 2008 and consistently kept getting worse. Then beginning of this year, I started looking up stuff on the Internet about this and came across your website. This was the best thing that could have happened to me - I thought I've tried everything from medications to injections why not try something else - of course being natural products was the key. I didn't want to be on any more meds for the rest of my life.
Thank you Steve - this has changed my quality of life. Some days I didn't even want to be around people as it was embarrassing when I would talk and my eye/face would spasm so bad, some people thought I was having a stroke.
I am slowly weaning myself off the meds I was on and hopefully your products (6 product plan) will keep on working as I will continue to just use your products.
Once again thanks so much Steve for putting your information on the Internet and I'm so glad I found it. To date my eyes and face have stopped spasmming completely - what an awesome feeling. 1 month to see results - wow - I was impressed.

"Encouraged to be on a healthier path, after about a month of taking the recommended amount of the food, the frequency of my twitching "episodes" have been significantly reduced."
Hope all is well. As I mentioned during our last phone conversation, I have seen amazing improvements with my digestion since I started taking the probiotics. My eyes have significantly improved also. Best of all, I am now confident it's manageable while before I feared it was getting progressively worse.
A few years ago, I began experiencing "heaviness" in my eyelids. I blew it off as being tired or perhaps even needing a new eyeglass prescription. At the recommendation of my ophthalmologist, I saw a neuro-ophthalmologist who diagnosed me with having blepharospasm. He quickly prescribed a highly addictive drug which I took for all of three weeks then weaned off due to the side effects. Plus I saw no improvement. That's when I decided to take a more holistic approach and consulted an acupuncturist. He explained the connection between the eyelids and the digestive system and spleen. He recommended that if I dealt with my digestion issue I might see improvement with my eyes. Now, for some reason, that made sense to me. Within the past 3-5 years, my stomach had turned into a completely stressed and hostile environment, making it difficult for me to both eat and sleep comfortably. I trace my digestive issues back to my childhood when I used to cramp and bloat so bad that my grade school teacher would have me lay flat on the floor to put pressure on my stomach to release the gas. Up until recently, I'd done that for over 40 years.
I'll never forget the morning that I stumbled across Steve's website while researching dystonia. My eyes were so locked that I had to hold them open with my fingers to read the information. I was intrigued when I noted his connection between blepharospasm and the digestive system. I called him and decided to try his approach. Unfortunately, I was so excited to receive the supplements that I did not follow the instructions completely and therefore did not experience the improvements I had anticipated. Once I made the adjustment, my stomach issues cleared up within 7 weeks. Literally. I was both happy and angry at the same time! Why had I suffered so long? Why hadn't one of the many doctors I visited suggested a probiotic? Encouraged to be on a healthier path, after about a month of taking the recommended amount of the food, the frequency of my twitching "episodes" significantly reduced. I've even ventured back to driving.
Thanks Steve for directing me toward relief. The fear of my condition worsening was stressful in itself. Now that I see it's manageable rather than getting progressively worse, I've turned my focus to reducing many other stresses that may be consciously or unconsciously contributing to the blepharospasm. Meanwhile, I now have a holistic doctor and she's noticed the improvement in my blood work – particularly my perfectly balanced alkaline/acidity levels, which I totally attribute to my diet of food and supplements.
Steve thanks again for your commitment to educating and providing others with a pathway to health and healing.

“David is now on the 26th day of taking the foods. His eyes are wide open and no longer light sensitive."
My husband David has been completely disabled for nearly 6 years. Retired from his work due to his cranial/cervical dystonia, he has not been able to drive in all that time. He has suffered from “restless leg syndrome”, “essential tremors”, and “bruxism” all his adult life, which is inherited.
His blepharospasm began in the aftermath of Hurricane Rita in our area September, 2005. We went the whole year of 2006 going from doctor to doctor getting incorrect diagnoses i.e., dry eyes etc. etc. He stopped driving when he crashed into our fence trying to get to work. By then he was in full blown crisis. In January, 2007 he went into high anxiety and severe spasms, his breathing was completely shut off and ended up in the hospital with an emergency tracheotomy.
After spending hours upon hours doing research on the internet, I finally found out what was wrong with my husband, found a neurologist to give proper diagnoses and submitted to 5 years of the injections (every 12 weeks) and a cocktail of drugs. We were given assurances that he would have a good life and return to driving within 18 months.
With little success and relief, years of pain, my husband was becoming a reclusive,
zombie-like person having extreme light and sound sensitivity. Darkened rooms were
becoming the norm. It became difficult to live and so difficult to see what was happening to him. Through all the years I kept researching for other alternatives of treatment. I finally used another “search engine” and found you. I did so much research about probiotics and you as a person and businessman. I prayed about it and then presented it to my husband. We decided to change directions because we were so disappointed in David’s quality of life.
His last treatment was August 10th, and we began to wean him off another drug. He was completely weaned off that drug when he began probiotic foods on September 12th. Now to the progress in JUST 16 days.
8th day - Walking normally (not shuffling) went outside to bring in the trash barrel, then realized he did not have his sunglasses on, his eyes wide open and the light was not hurting him.
We rate his day each night in a log, 1-10 with some notes, and positive results along
with the negative. His oromandibular spasms are still quite severe but his speech has
become clearer and he is able to eat better. He has had 3-7 days, sort of like a roller
coaster, but is confident that as he continues, he will eventually level out on the high
end close to 10.
16th day- David is feeling stronger and his anxiety had decreased, his eyes are good,
his oromandibular spasms are still strong. Now, we are planning a trip. David has a long way to go, but he has been in such a deep hole for 6 years, that his progress in 16 days gives us both such hope. He also knows that a lot of his problems are caused by work related stress. He is learning the techniques to help reduce his stress and anxiety.
My next update will not be so long, but I wanted others and you to know where my
husband has come from, as far as his dystonia is concerned. Thank you, Steve, and
thank you for your support. We are looking forward to even better days.
David and Janet – Texas
David is now on the 26th day of taking the foods. His eyes are wide open and no longer light sensitive. We had an appointment this morning and he went without his
sunglasses, no squinting and no discomfort from the sunlight. As we were waiting to see the doctor he was reading a magazine! David has not done that for 6 years!
He still has constant oromandibular spasms (dystonia of the lower face, mouth and
tongue), but not as severe and he is able to bring his head back. His neck and
shoulder muscles are not so tight. His normal walking gate has returned.
He is in better control of his anxiety without drugs, by listening to music and breathing exercises. He experienced an anxiety attack yesterday but for only about 2 hours. He has been able to take a 30 minute power nap on his own without drugs.
He is feeling better in his muscles and his well-being. What is truly remarkable is that he is making plans for the future! He is going to talk with the family doctor next week about weaning off another drug. Thank you Steve and thank you for your support.

"Although I am a medical physician, it has been even a hell of a job finding some relief. So I'm happy with the improvement so far!!"
I must say that after 4 weeks of taking the supplements, there has been a little improvement in how I feel and now and then less suffering of the blepharospasm.
After ten years of increasing symptoms and searching for improvement through many
alternative healing therapies, this is the first time things are getting noticeably better. Although I am a medical physician, it has been even a hell of a job finding some relief. So I'm happy with the improvement so far!!
I'm not where I have to be as yet, but last week, for the first time, it struck me while working, that my eyes were quieter and I felt quieter in my whole face also!
After feeling improvement, it strengthened me.

"My eyes are doing great! I want to take this opportunity to thank you for taking time to help people."
I've been taking the supplements for 8 weeks, until I felt improvement. At this point, three months later I hardly blink. When I started to feel the symptoms about 2 years ago, I just started taking driving lessons, and then I was diagnosed with blepharospasm. At that point I felt that this dream of driving is no longer a possibility.
Well, today I'm planning to start lessons again. I feel safe to do so. My eyes are doing great! I want to take this opportunity to thank you for taking time to help people. I wasn't very optimistic when I started to take the supplements and I can't believe the results I'm getting. May G-d bless you for all your efforts and keep up the good work.
Miriam – NY
Sorry for being out of touch. I have a very good but busy life. Thanks for sending me e-mails, from time to time, about the nutritious food and its helpful effects in so many areas.
I love to read about it and learn.
As to my own situation, well, thank G-d, I am not suffering from any symptoms at this point and feel amazing. I stopped taking it because I simply don't need it any more.
Good luck to you with the amazing work you do and for being so caring to others.
Have a good week and keep in touch.

"I greatly appreciate finding you... I hope to continue to improve."
Sunday was day 4 -- my eyes seemed to improve slightly, but my energy level was really good and steady – worked all day doing things, mowing, washing cars, lawn care, and mowing the 2 acre lot with the tractor and flail mower -- then cooked dinner. Felt really good. Monday a bit tired - but my headaches from eye strain and spasm tension have slowed down. (That is really wearing on my overall attitude and performance). I am still cautious -- tried a lot of different things in the last 12 years am a bit shy of remedies and promises.
I greatly appreciate finding you. This is really a terrible life changing condition to live with. The hell you go through and challenge to stay sane, and the changes you must make to communicate to family, friends, social adjustments, and business adjustments are unreal. Thank you so much. I hope to continue to improve.

"I am seeing an improvement in my spasms."
We were away the month of February and the product wasn't shipped to me. But I did notice an improvement before I ran out. I am home for 1 week now and am currently following your instructions. I am seeing an improvement in my spasms. Thanks for your help.
Kathy – Pennsylvania
I have reached 6 each of the two main foods and am noticing a difference. I will continue to add and hope it gets even better. Thanks.

"Now it has been just over 90 days since I started with Steve and I can report that I have returned to 90-95% of being back to my regular self before the onset of BEB."
I am a 59-year old husband and father and became afflicted with Benign Essential
Blepharospasm (BEB) in January of this year. My symptoms were blinking eyes, head bowing (chin-to-chest), and some involuntary facial movements. I visited several different doctors, including two neurologists. Once I knew that I had BEB, I then took two courses of action:
1) I was surrounded by praying family and friends; and, 2) I found Steve Zarren’s website and called him.
Steve was very kind and compassionate. It seemed to be Steve’s mission in life to help people with BEB and dystonia. He helped me with my first order and sent me very specific instructions on how to proceed. I followed his recommendations exactly.
In addition to Steve’s recommendations, I reduced my coffee consumption from 1.5 quarts per day to zero coffee cups. I switched to black tea, green tea, and herbal mint tea which have also helped. Due to my severe blinking and movements, I did have one injection about three weeks after starting the program, but I am hoping that I will not have to undergo the injections ever again because I have received such relief from the food. Also I have tried to increase my physical exercise to be more active.
Last week, I drove two and one-half hours to an appointment with one of the leading
neurologists in my state specializing in involuntary movement illnesses. After the doctor
examined me, he said that I was relatively symptom-free and he discharged me as his patient. Now it has been just over 90 days since I started with Steve and I can report that I have returned to 90-95% of being back to my regular self before the onset of BEB.
In conclusion, I am thankful to Steve for his help and guidance over these very difficult months for me, and I am grateful to God for answered prayers.
Mr. Wilson, Washington
I can report that I am up to 99% back to normal.
I am taking your program and have changed my diet to include more fruits and
vegetables along with some life-style changes. I drink filtered water and have given up coffee (I was drinking over 1.5 quarts/day). Now I enjoy green tea and a little black tea. I have been working out at our local gym and going on bicycle rides. Friends and family have noticed my lack of blinking and given me favorable comments. Thank you for guiding me back to health. Please continue on with your quest to help other people like myself.
Mr. Wilson - Washington (update)
"She is now able to do outdoor sports without any problems, which was not
I read about Steve and the whole food supplements on the Internet and contacted him directly with regard to my wife, who was suffering from blepharospasm. No other treatment could bring her significant relief and we decided to try Steve's advice. Steve was incredibly supportive and instructed us in great detail. I had taken her to several doctors and they could not figure out what was wrong with her. We have seen neurologists, and did not receive any concrete answers. My wife had actually been blind for more than six months. I was very worried, but less than four weeks after starting the food supplements and praying to God to help us out as well, we began to see some changes. She suddenly felt a significant improvement. She is now able to do outdoor sports without any problems, which was not possible before. I want to thank Steve for his dedication and support.
Elias - Texas
After two months, I am definitely much better and most of the time my eyes remain open. I have started reading books once again, which was my passion. Thanks for your help.
Y. K. – India
I know that I have only been taking this food since Wednesday but as of today Sunday, I can see a difference in my stomach. I have always had a problem with my stomach, with it being upset at times and not being able to eat when I needed to. I also would have diarrhea and as of today, there has been some difference in it .Thanks so far.
Daisy – Louisiana
It is now 4 months and I think I am about 75% improved and so very glad. Thank God you were sent my way. I am thinking about starting to try to help others since several people have asked me about it. So I may be calling you shortly. Thank God you came along.
Daisy - Louisiana (update)
"The dystonia movements seem to have receded entirely, and the blinking itself
seems to be improving."
I've now been taking the products for 2 months. I'm thrilled to cautiously report that my eyes seem to be improving. The dystonia movements seem to have receded entirely, and the blinking itself seems to be improving. Hopefully this will continue.
I haven't had any adverse reaction to anything. I'm deeply thankful, Steve, for your help with my blepharospasm. The more conventional treatments I would be embarking on, without your alternative, are absolutely grim. At this stage, it looks like I may be able to avoid more drugs.
Catherine – Australia
"Although minuscule, I am starting to see positive results using the recommended
It is going on 2 months and I'm beginning to see results. Although minuscule, I am
starting to see positive results using the recommended food. Occasionally I get
glimpses of how I was without blepharospasm but they seem to only last from 2 to 10
seconds at a time. I'm anxious to see how my bike riding problems are when the
weather turns a little warmer and I can get back on my bike. Thanks so much Steve for your wisdom and encouragement
Bob R. – Illinois
"...the first day in a long time where I experienced little to no symptoms, which
was an incredible feeling."
Just wanted to give you an update on how everything is going so far with the
blepharospasm. I am on day 14 of the 4 product regimen and the results are already
noticeable!!! Day 12 was the first day in a long time where I experienced little to no symptoms, which was an incredible feeling. I do not want to get too excited quite yet, but I am cautiously optimistic. Thank you again for all you have done to help me so far. I look forward to continued progress with the program.
Jake – N.Y.
"...it's been 6 months and I'm still near symptom free!"
I want to thank you for introducing me to this food. I felt so much better just a couple
weeks after using it! I've been symptom free now for almost 3 months! Thank you for your help.
Jennifer – New Hampshire
I just wanted to thank you again, it's been 6 months and I'm still near symptom free! I can't remember the last time I've gone this long without blinking excessively. Just wanted you to know I'm still feeling great! Thanks again!
Jennifer - New Hampshire (update)
"It is working progressively and I'm feeling a bit better, too."
Thank you for your support. It has only been a month since I started taking my supplements and the blinking and eye closure are still happening but I understand that it takes a while to heal. I think that I'm not eating enough healthy foods. It is working progressively and I'm feeling a bit better, too.
Thank you for the consistent emails to encourage me. Appreciate that very much.
Rose - Australia
I am thankful and grateful that my conditions have improved a great deal since taking the food supplements. The eye twitching and the speech slurring are gone and my family has noticed the improvement. Thank you for your help and support.
Rose - Australia (update)
It seems to be working. I received the second shipment and it is doing some good. I welcome continued improvement.
Fred – Georgia
I am feeling better. No spasms until I drive.
Karen – California
I am doing pretty well - much less light sensitivity and blinking is minimal.

"I stopped all products except yours...not wanting to give up."
I have been on the 4 product program for 5 months. I have had an unusual experience during this time. After beginning in March, I gradually got worse and worse. After 6 weeks, I was so bad that I stopped all products except yours. These I only took at bedtime trying to avoid the reaction, but not wanting to give up. When things didn't get better, I stopped the over the counter allergy meds that I had started about the same time as your products. After a couple of weeks, I slowly started increasing your products again. I am up to 6 and 6 three times a day and doing very well now. Thank you for all your help and support.
Beth – Alabama
"The whole food supplements are helping me."
The whole food supplements are helping me. Fortunately, I do not have to take that
many and reduced it, but went back to what I was taking. I still have some problems
when I am out in the wind a lot, but it is much better than it was before. Thank you.
Rodney – OK
"Over the last two weeks there has been a noticeable improvement."
Just to give you an update, I started taking your program on March 27th, about two and a half weeks ago. I had been taking the same food, but from another company, for the previous 9 weeks, with no noticeable improvement in my blepharospasm.
Over the last two weeks there has been a noticeable improvement. My spasms are now less severe and the spasm threshold is now considerably greater. Admittedly these are early days, but I am now really hopeful, that with time, these symptoms can finally be permanently reversed.
Ian – United Kingdom
"The cervical dystonia and blepharospasm have improved 100% in the last week."
The cervical dystonia and blepharospasm have improved 100% in the last week. Taking
these whole food supplements have really helped me take control of my life and now I
can go shopping, eat and drive, and go to church without having my eyes close and my
neck is doing 100% better, too.
I can play my piano, read my books, and write on Facebook a lot better. My stress levels are much lower and so is my blood pressure. I can talk to my friends and not feel so bad. Trying to clear my throat and swallowing my food is a lot better, too. The enzymes and the other whole food supplements now allow me to do all of these normal, everyday activities.
Jesus Christ said, "The food and herbs are for healing the body, mind and pray".
I am doing so much better now and can go on with my life and live it in joy and peace.

"I suddenly felt a nice relaxed feeling in my eyes and the frequent episodes of
dystonia were substantially diminished."
I'm taking the products you recommended and when I got to the point of taking 6 of each of the two main foods, I suddenly felt a nice relaxed feeling in my eyes and the frequent episodes of dystonia were substantially diminished. After a few days I started to reduce them slowly as suggested. When I got to half of what I originally needed it was still effective and that is where I will stay with the good feeling. This is where I stand right now and I like it. Thank you.
Claudio - Texas
"Thank you Steve for helping me find relief without needles."
It has been about 2 months now that I have been taking the food. I certainly notice a
difference. This annoying condition is now at least tolerable. After the alternative treatment taken by most, (what a nightmare) that I decided to never do again, I discovered you and your website. You offer an alternative to help find relief.
In September, I had that other treatment. The next morning my eyelids had collapsed onto my eyelashes, my mouth was crooked. It took at least 8 weeks or more for everything to go back into place. Never again! I had another appointment in December, which I had forgotten about. They called to let me know that I had missed it and would I like to reschedule. My answer was a definite “no and that I was very disappointed with that treatment and would never do it again”. So that is my story so far. Thank you Steve for helping me find relief without needles.
Darcie - New Jersey
I appreciate your help and advice.
John – Australia
"Thank you so much for your help and changing my life."
I have dystonia spasms of the eyelids. The 5th week on the whole food supplements I got worse. But with more time and patience into the 8th week I got some relief. I can watch TV for the first time in a long time. Thanks Steve.
Now I have reduced my amounts on your advice. I am down to the minimum of one of each three times a day. Thank you so much for your help and changing my life.
Berry – Texas
"It feels so good to be able to look at someone without having a spasm."
I have been taking your regime faithfully for nearly two and a half months and I am pleased to say it is helping me tremendously. I first noticed after three weeks the sunlight did not seem near as intense. My spasms are much less and my speech is so much better. I have been taking the injections for over seven years and I dreaded it every time I had to go back. The side effects seemed to get worse each time. I am not cured but people have noticed the difference. It feels so good to be able to look at someone without having a spasm. I am pleased with the results that I am seeing. Thanks for your help.
Carol - Texas
I am very satisfied. It has been a year and a half since I started your regimen. I am so much better. It has been almost two years since I had my last injections and I am so relieved that I haven't had to continue with them. I would recommend your nutritional food supplements to anyone with dystonia. Thanks, Steve.
Carol - Texas (update)
"I felt relief after the first week and have been fairly steady since then."
I started with what seemed like mild eye irritation. I experienced uncontrollable blinking and general irritation in both eyes. This condition flared up dramatically when driving.
When things began to worsen and my eyes were unable to function at home and at
work, I went to see my optometrist. I was diagnosed with dry eye and was prescribed
several drops 2 months after the initial diagnosis, I was not getting relief. Things were, in fact, getting much worse. I would have to close one eye or prop open one eye depending on the severity of the symptoms I was feeling that day. Daily functions were getting more and more difficult. I was nearly unable to look people in the eye as that would invariably set off an episode. I also could not be in rooms with a large amount of fluorescent light (and even later any well lit area including sunlight) as that also trigger my symptoms. Driving was getting much more difficult and I certainly was not looking forward to the hour and half drive to and from work each day. I asked about being referred to an ophthalmologist. The dry eye diagnosis was confirmed and my bottom punctual ducts were plugged to keep moisture from draining away from my eyes. In addition, I was prescribed additional drops for day and night moisture replenishment. I was hopeful, due to the fact that I felt some initial relief. The relief only lasted for about 2 weeks. After that short time, my symptoms continued. After another 2 months I asked to be referred to another ophthalmologist. I was again told that I did indeed have dry eye but also may have something called blepharospasm. I was referred to a neuro-ophthalmologist. The neuro-ophthalmologist believed my symptoms to indeed be blepharospasm and that dry eye was present but not to the level that should cause any irritation. My only course of action was injections. I agreed to the injections and 16 total injections were given about 10 minutes later. They were painful but I looked forward to the 3 months of relief that were coming my way. My eyes felt much better and the symptoms of blepharospasm subsided after day 5 of the injections but the sensation around my eyes and eyelids were difficult to endure. Things balanced out after week 2 and I began to feel normal. The bottom dropped out after week 4. I was mostly devastated. I was beginning to feel as though I would not get any relief. I began looking on the Internet for other resources and help and ran across Steve Zarren’s site. His story and experiences were similar to mine and so I thought that I would contact him and give his whole food supplement program a try. The cost was considerable but I was running out of options. The amount of whole food supplements I am taking is pretty staggering but after feeling initial relief, it is an inconvenience that is quickly overcome. I felt relief after the first week and have been fairly steady since then.
I am currently on week 7. I will get an occasional bad moment or even bad day where the symptoms will flare up, but the severity is much less than before. I would not say I am cured. But I will say that my quality of life is better and my symptoms are more manageable than before.
I look forward to continuing this food and hopefully living the rest of my life
Steven – Indiana
Just a quick note to let you know, while I'm still blinking, it has only been a few weeks and the sun isn't bothering me like it used to. Also, I don't feel like I have blinders on the sides of my face. Maybe the supplements are helping.

"I am very thrilled to report that after taking the supplements for 10 days, I am
feeling better than I have in over 2 years."
I am very thrilled to report that after taking the supplements for 10 days, I am feeling better than I have in over 2 years. My initial diagnosis was dry eye. After almost two years of using various drops, having tear ducts plugged, and several other procedures, I was diagnosed with blepharospasm. I tried a series of injections which helped very little. I had prayed for the Lord to guide me in what to do. When I googled blepharospasm and saw your story, I felt that my prayer was being answered. While I am certainly not healed, I am so much better and I can have hope of being back to my old self in the near future. I can’t thank you enough for what you are doing.
Shirley – Florida
Steve, this is a short note to let you know how much improvement I have had in the past 30 days. In the last 30 days, I have had 23 good days, which is a vast improvement over the previous 30 days when I only had 8 good days. I still have the occasional bad days, but they are getting less and less. Thank you for all you do.
Shirley - Florida (update)
"I'm just into my 3rd week and have noticed subtle changes to my body."
I am following your amounts accurately and with my fingers crossed for a positive result. I'm just into my 3rd week and have noticed subtle changes to my body. I'm doing some exercise now (20 minutes per day), plus staying active during the day when time allows.
The amounts ramp up pretty soon now so hopefully the body is ready for it. I will keep
you informed of anything positive Steve, and thanks again for your help.

"I can honestly say that 75-80% of the spasms are gone!"
About 20 months ago, my eyes started shutting on me. It progressed quite rapidly where it became hard to drive, talk to people face to face, etc. The first doctor said I had sleep apnea. The second said I have dry eye, which I do, but it took awhile to be diagnosed as having blepharospasm. I have put up with this disorder for over a year and a half before finding Steve online. I talked with Steve, and because he is a fellow blepharospasm sufferer, I felt comforted knowing he knew exactly what I was going through. I had been praying to find my answer, because, I can't imagine God wanting me to go through this. I've always known that nutrition is the main key for a body that will heal itself. What Steve told me made sense and I agreed immediately to give it a try.
I have been on the program for 12 days now. On day 8 I was driving home from Tampa, and I suddenly realized, I wasn't blinking! This blew my mind! Sunday was just o.k. but the last 2 days have been wonderful! I can honestly say that 75-80% of the spasms are gone! This tells me, we are on the right track, and in due time, I will be totally healed! As Steve says, “be patient”. It's not perfect yet. It seems towards evening, my eyes get tired, and spasm a little more. This too makes sense to me. I'm sure my eye muscles have been through a lot the last 20 months. I really am thrilled, and I thank my God for leading me to Steve. If you are reading this, you are probably suffering from this debilitating disease. I feel your pain, but this program just might be your answer. I know it's mine! I will keep you updated on my progress. Thank you.

"Isabella’s eye has stayed open for the longest period to date..."
Just a quick update to let you know about Isabella’s progress. Isabella’s eye has stayed open for the longest period to date, going onto 9 weeks now. So, it would appear that the whole food supplements she is taking are having some benefit to her.
John – Australia
“Seeing the progress in such a short amount of time is helping me stay patient.
I know from previous natural treatments, healing takes time.”
I began noticing symptoms of blepharospasm about a year ago, and about 3 months ago it got so bad that I found I could no longer drive. (I had recognized the symptoms because my sister had been diagnosed with it 7 years ago. She chose to do the injections and then the surgery.) Coincidentally, I had just finished reading “The What’s Protocol”, where Dr. Wahl describes her journey to healing her MS through diet. I consulted with my doctor and we both agreed that following a ketogenic diet, which is the diet Dr. Wahl followed, would be good for my brain and possibly help with the blepharospasm. Dr. Whal also recommends using algae as an important part of the healing process. So I was thrilled when I came across Steve’s website, and even happier after I spoke to him.
I was on the ketogenic diet for about 6 weeks and began to notice some subtle improvements. I then began the supplements and the improvements seemed to occur at a more rapid pace—it was as if the supplements put the diet on turbo boost. I’ve only been doing the supplements for 6 weeks now and I find that as long as I don’t do too much computer work or get too tired or stressed I can be quite comfortable. I still don’t feel I can drive, but the improvement has been huge---3 months ago I could barely go out in the sun and would get headaches from the spasms.
Seeing the progress in such a short amount of time is helping me stay patient. I know from previous natural treatments, healing takes time. It took many years for the damage to occur that created this condition and it cannot be undone quickly. I have found in addition to Steve’s recommended program, the ketogenic diet, and meditation has also been a great help.
Diane – Italy

"The twitching in both eyes has stopped and it has only been about 3 weeks."
I have been eating many of these nutritional products and they changed my life. I used to eat the products only once a day, first thing in the morning. What a surprise I
received when I began taking them three times a day. It made all the difference! The
twitching in both eyes has stopped and it has only been about three weeks using this
new routine. I thank you, so-ooo very much and hope others will allow you to help them as well.

"I am happy to say that my muscle spasms have reduced."
Thanks for your support, I am keen to keep taking the supplements and am more than
happy with the results. I feel more energy and am sleeping better. Thank you so
much. Many thanks.
Jeanette – Australia
I am happy to say that my muscle spasms have reduced, my blepharospasm does
not seem to bother me as much, and the best thing is that my voice (Spasmodic
Dysphonia) has been really good. I have not needed any more injections. I can't
thank you enough for the benefits I have received from the nutritional food.
Jeanette - Australia (update)
"I started taking the food and after a couple of weeks I began finding that I did not have the same difficulty talking."
I have had a lot of benefit from the supplement. Before taking it, as you had advised, I was ready to go to Los Angeles to have surgery for my Spasmodic Dysphonia. My symptoms were so bad, that I struggled to speak. I started taking the food and after a couple of weeks I began finding that I did not have the same difficulty talking. It just seemed so much easier and so I have not needed to go to the US for surgery. I did stop taking the food after visiting a local herbalist and found that after about a month my symptoms returned. My family said that I was much better on the food, so I am absolutely convinced about the benefits of the products. I am amazed about the nutritional benefits. I still have good and bad days with the blepharospasm, but I am hopeful that will improve. I do drink lots of water, eat organic food, when I can, try to reduce my stress as much as possible.
Jeanette - Australia (update)
“As time went by, the spasms became less, I could talk better, and I did not choke on my food. Within three months I had improved so much it was like a miracle. I have been on the nutrition a little over two years, and I feel like a different person.”
When my daughter married eleven years ago in a garden wedding, I noticed my eyes seemed to be extremely sensitive to the sun. As the next several months went by, I began to blink more and more. I had a hard time keeping my eyes open. My eyes were very sensitive to lights in a room. I needed to have them very dim or turn them off. When I would get into the car to drive, as soon as I would back out of the garage, my eyes would start to squeeze shut. As I would be driving down the street, my eyes would close and I could not open them. After several near accidents, I went to my ophthalmologist. He told me there was nothing wrong with my eyes, I had 20/20 vision. If I had 20/20 vision, then why could I not see?
Over the next two and a half years I went to several different doctors seeking answers to what was the problem with my eyes. I had many different tests run to no avail. I was a receptionist at a middle school and I was the first person that people would meet when they walked in the door. It was very difficult to look up and look them in the eye because my eyes would begin to spasm. They would look at me and wonder what the problem was. Students would ask me, “What is wrong with your eyes?” I looked as though I was in pain. It reached a point where I could not open my eyes enough to watch television. I would have to lay my reclining chair all the way back to be able to see. I eventually had to quit driving.
I went to another ophthalmologist and he knew exactly what was going on. He told me I had blepharospasm (focal eyelid dystonia). I had never heard of such thing. He told me it would only get worse and there was no cure for it. He gave me some information to read and told me that it was treated with injections. We made an appointment to have the injections. It had to be ordered because in the area I live it was not readily available. I began the injections. Within a few days, one eye closed completely and the other about half way. It was very difficult to see and almost impossible to work at the computer. I got these injections about every three months and each time my eyes would close for about six weeks.
As time went by, I began to have a hard time swallowing and began to have strange noises come out of my mouth. I could not speak clearly and would get tongue tied. I would have to repeat everything I said. I would choke on my food. I developed vertigo and it lasted for about six months. My physician sent me to neurologist. We discussed the blepharospasm as well as the vertigo. He set me up an appointment with a specialist in Houston at Baylor Medical Center. When I went to Houston they did a very thorough exam and discovered I also had spasms down my face and in my throat (oromandibular dystonia) and down the left side of my neck (cervical dystonia). I then got injections. The shots were very painful and I would always bruise, but within a few days my spasms would be better, but nearly every time at least one eye would droop. As bad as it hurt, I would actually look forward to next trip because I could see. I would get the injections every four to five months.
After seven and a half years the shots did not seem to help as much. It reached a point, after I had the injections, I would develop flu-like symptoms. Two to three days after the injections, I would spend several days in bed because I would be so ill. I got to where I actually dreaded getting the shots.
One day I was searching on the Internet to see if they had come up with any new research on blepharospasm, I ran across Steve’s website with his story. I immediately sent my email address and phone number. Within ten minutes the phone rang and it was Steve. We talked for nearly an hour and discussed my situation. I guess I was so desperate, I agreed to try them for three months. Not knowing anything about the product, I gave Steve my credit card number and ordered the nutrition. This was over the Fourth of July 2012. He told me he would place my order on July the 5th and I would get them on Monday. After I hung up the phone I wondered, “What in the world have I just done?” When Monday rolled around, the order came, just as he said they would. He also emailed his instructions on how to use the products. I followed his instructions and dietary suggestions on how to use the food. Within a few days, when I went outside, the sunlight did not seem to be so harsh. About two weeks later, I could actually go outside without wearing sunglasses.
As time went by, the spasms became less, I could talk better, and I did not choke on my food. Within three months I had improved so much it was like a miracle. I have been on the nutrition a little over two years, and I feel like a different person. I still need to keep my stress in check and be sure I get my rest, but I consider myself pretty much cured. It has been over two years since my last injections and I can honestly say I do not miss that at all. While they did help me at first, I am so glad I found Steve to help me. Thanks Steve!

"But I am very pleased with the improvement I see in my eyes. I still have half the former problem when I read and when I drive."
I have been meaning to drop you note to let you know how my eyes are doing. It's been over 3 months since my last injections. While things are much better, I have had several set backs. A bout with intestinal flu was not fun but I kept up my regime. I will stay where I am for this week and then increase. Life is so busy and I have done these past 2 months of the food without a kitchen. It has been torn out and a whole new one is being put into this 65 yr old farmhouse. Almost done!! So my food and meal times have not been the best. But I am very pleased with the improvement I see in my eyes. I still have half the former problem when I read and when I drive.... Some days are great and others not so great! All in all I am happy with the results that have improved so far. I do plan to continue..... I promised myself I would continue with the food until my birthday the end of April! Thank you for checking with me!

"...there have been times when I noticed the eye blinking and closing has been less intense."
I have been taking the supplements now for 2 weeks and will continue with the program for the recommended time frame.
I’m not sure if I have seen any improvement but I do have to say that there have been times when I noticed the eye blinking and closing has been less intense. Perhaps this is a subtle improvement that might continue to get better. The severity is definitely greater in some situations. For example, last night I went to a play. It was a struggle to keep from blinking throughout the whole performance. But then driving to work today it was less intense. Very strange.

"Great news is that she is in her third month of taking the food and has recorded significant progress."
In 2010, my mother in-law, back in Africa, started noticing minor twitching of her eye lid. At the time, we didn't think of it as a big deal as she could still do pretty much everything without any help. She did use some eye medication prescribed then but they were of no help to her problem. Later that year, she noticed that situation was getting worse and was increasingly becoming discomforting. She then visited a neurologist who diagnosed her of having spasms.
My wife began to research this online and found that her symptoms matched a disorder known as blepharospasm and also read there was no known cause nor cure to this disorder. That posed a lot of concern to us and we wanted to make sure that mommy was okay. My wife continued her search and found Steve Zarren's website and read his story on how he had suffered the same disorder and got help from an organic food. We decided to give it a shot. I reached out to Steve in 2011 and explained the situation to him and he encouraged her to try it. He asked that we follow his directions and more importantly, be patient as it could take more time for some and may or may not work, since we are all different.
She took it for the first three months, saw some improvement within the first six weeks, but stopped taking it after the third month. She decided to try injections and had some in 2012 with not much success.
In September of 2014, she visited us in the States to witness the birth of our baby boy and after seeing the condition of her eyes; my wife and I decided to reach out to a neurologist again for a second opinion. We saw one who confirmed she had early stage blepharospasm and suggested injections as the only way to control it.
We wanted something more natural and somewhat permanent and I reached out to Steve again.
Great news is that she is in her third month of taking the food and has recorded significant progress. She goes for some days, if not a week, without twitching and continues to show progress as each day goes by.
I wanted to send Steve this piece and hopefully inspire anyone suffering from this disorder to try using this food.
Thanks Steve for all you support.

"I started your program over a month ago and have a valuable confirmation."
I started your program over a month ago and have a valuable confirmation.
At some point I was having scalp aches and my head felt heavy. My blepharospasm and twitches were very strong and uncomfortable.
One day I decided to stop all my vitamins and the supplements. That day, while in the train going to the city, I put in practice what I teach, meditation and conscious breathing. I set the goal to 600 counts one inhale, two exhale three inhales and so on. At the time I reached to 200, the train arrived in the city. The scalp aches and the twitches were 80% better. It proved that the activity of the blepharospasm is a trigger for the lack of oxygen and breath awareness. That day I felt released.
So I continue this practice at any giving moment while walking, working, playing, talking or any activity in practicing being present through my breathing.
Steve, the state of our minds can trigger and affect or benefit and improve any condition we are in whether emotional or physical.
The third day I decided to continue taking your program and vitamins.
The two approaches together work great
When I feel that my right eye starts blinking, I just bring attention to my breathing and full awareness, dropping any thoughts, and feeling my inner body field.
I learned this in a book "The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle. The counting I added myself for discipline purposes.
This chronic condition can become a path to our spiritual enlightenment by shifting our mind, observing our thoughts, breathing, and living in the now.
We are so attached to the past that we don't live life.
I have achieved great understanding and peace, and I only can feel gratitude to my wink eye, that put me in the Now to understand the mystery of life.

"After almost three months on the nutritional supplements, I have much less soreness in the back of my head and neck."
I am really glad I tried the nutritional supplements and do appreciate the educational programs provided.
After almost three months on the nutritional supplements, I have much less soreness in the back of my head and neck. However, I do continue to have significant pulling and stiffness in my neck and light sensitivity. I am hopeful that this will improve. One other thing that I have noticed is a decrease in ocular (optic) migraines that I have had one to three times a month for thirty years.

"I’m back to driving locally, watching TV, working on my computer and I’m able to listen to music and people talking and the list goes on and on."
The food seems to control my inflammation, aches and pains. I am doing pretty well. The only symptom that really bugs me is not being able to talk or eat without my eyes twitching like Morse Code. I’ve come a long, long way... I’m back to driving locally, watching TV, working on my computer and I’m able to listen to music and people talking and the list goes on and on.
However, when I talk or eat, my brain seems to blink on and off in unison with my eyes. In general, my brain seems to be working much better, my thought processes are much clearer except my verbal communications are still poor. If I’m trying to have a conversation with someone, I need to close my eyes when talking so my sentences aren’t chopped into three words at a time.
I’ve long since thought that I had some sort of a stroke a couple of years before developing Blepharospasm, but the tests were inconclusive. Any suggestions?

"Some days are almost perfect."
Thank you Steve for sharing the products with me. I have had good results but not where I want to be. Some days are almost perfect. I do very well when I work on projects, but not always too well when I watch TV or carry on a conversation, or try to pay attention to a speaker. I am however, expecting that to improve when I reach the correct amount. I surely have felt good and have great lab work and that too is a good thing

"I have been taking the food for 7 weeks and am feeling better than I have in years."
I just wanted to send you a testimonial about my experience with the food supplements. I have had spasmodic Dysphonia for 23 years. Just recently I developed cervical and ocular blepharospasm. These have been debilitating. I have been taking the food for 7 weeks and am feeling better than I have in years. I want to encourage anybody with dystonia to please consider these products. They work. I still have a ways to go, but am very happy about how things are working so far. I had to stop driving for 4 months, now I'm able to drive myself to work and home.
Thank you Steve for caring so much about other people. I'm excited about getting even better.

"I just can't believe how much I have improved and wish everyone with this disease would have a chance to try your program."
I have been with your program for the last three months and I am having such improvements I just had to thank you so much. I can actually go around bright lights and outside on sunny days and not hide now. I just can't believe how much I have improved and wish everyone with this disease would have a chance to try your program. Thank you so much!

"I have been doing well on the program and have seen neurological improvements."
I have been doing well on the program and have seen neurological improvements. These improvements include a lessening of spasms in my right side and improved function in my right hand. Remember, my diagnosis is MS? My right hand was becoming weaker and my writing was chicken scratch. My writing has improved steadily. I just had a yearly check up with my doctor, and she was impressed at how good I look. She noticed that I am sitting up straighter and moving more.
Ann - Illinois (update)
I feel great about this experience. I've been on the program almost 4 months now. I feel that the food is helping me and am excited to see improvements. Steve Zarren is an excellent, caring mentor. My problem is in my waist and back and cannot walk. I also have MS. Two thumbs up!
Ann - Illinois
I have just come to the end of month two on my program. I am still having good and bad days but am cautiously optimistic as my good days are becoming more frequent . When I say good days, it will be for an hour or two that I am symptom free. When do I stop increasing ? I have not had complete relief yet. Looking forward to your response.
Mal – South Africa
I have been following your program Steve going on 3 weeks now. I have seen some relief especially in driving. I find when I focused on a specific task the eyes are much better. With Prayer and your program I feel good about the direction of my eyes. I do have more energy and feel healthier.
Donnie - Georgia
My left eye is doing much better. My right eye tends to want to close at times. If I use a cool compress it helps.
Donnie - Georgia (update)
Steve, my blepharospasm has been greatly reduced. I tried going down on the amounts but it was not as effective. It is certainly worth the cost to have my blepharospasm relieved and am intending to stay on them. They have been a God sent as have your e-mails of encouragement.
Mary – New Mexico
I am now in week 17 of taking the program and my digestion has improved. I feel well in myself. My blepharospasm symptoms have reduced. Also the dystonia symptoms in my jaw, throat, neck and shoulders have eased. Breathing at night is easier. I am hopeful the improvements will continue.
Naomi - New Zealand
I'm currently taking 3 tablets 3x a day. I was up to 4 at one point and when I was better I cut back to 3. That seems to be the best amount for me at the moment. The blepharospasm is gone at this point, however it seems to be seasonal for me. It's weird but mine usually starts in the spring and goes to the fall. I'm hoping this keeps it gone for good!
Kirk – Tennessee
The reason I haven't bought anymore product is because I'm happy to say I haven't had a problem with dystonia in over 2 years now! Since I stopped taking the food. Thank you again for all your help it really changed my life!
Jenny R - New Hampshire
I just received the second package of supplements. This will be my third month taking the supplements and I am feeling very much better with them and am hopeful to be fine completely in near future for which I am strictly following your instructions.
Furquan - Pakistan
This is month #4..I wanted to let you know that..My night vision is improving...tongue twisting has stopped......my heavy eye crunching (vs blinking) has tapered way down.. I am improving. I am at taking 7 of each of the foods...I am doing my best to stay on the program.........thank you so much.
Tischia - Washington
Because of other health problems, right now the eye lid is on the back burner...but one good thing...eye lid is not hurting or twitching.....thanks to you.
Marisa S - Indiana
Followed your advice and cut down to twice a day and gave my stomach the time to adjust which seems to have worked as I now tolerate the tablets. I am up to 7 of each 3 times per day. I am still getting some hemifacial spasm occasionally and some eye flickering, but greatly reduced. Therefore I shall continue to increase in the hopes that I will get maximum relief. I too have lost some weight which is a good thing. Very glad that I didn't give up (came close).
Thanks for all your help and will let you know when I think I have reached max relief.
Barbara S. - United Kingdom
I’ve been upping the amounts to 2-4 tabs 3 X day, sometimes more. Eyes/lids seem to need more on some days than others. Able to hold off on injections. Yay!
Anna - Virginia
I think the foods are doing their job! He says his blinking is down to almost NOTHING!. I am wondering at what point we start to decrease? He is taking 33 of each of the two of them per day (11 of each three times daily).
Thank you so much for all you have done for us!
