What about getting botox while having lyme. I was thinking about it before I was diagnosed. I really have frown lines since this illness.

I wouldnt add anymore stress to your body ie immune system then you have to. Botox is a toxin and we have to many toxins already from die off of Bb spirochetes.
Botulinum

It is possibly the most acutely toxic substance known, with a lethal dose of about 200-300 pg/kg, meaning that one hundred grams could kill every human on earth {for perspective, the rat poison strychnine, often described as highly toxic, has an LD50 of 1,000,000,000 pg/kg, and it would take forty million grams to kill every human}.

I take 6000 mg of Vit C a day, and notice an improvement in my skin. Maybe that's a way to go before Botox? Keeping the skin hydrated also helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Botox is temporary, and it's the freaking plague!

Vitamin C is a great idea. Also, hydralauric acid may help, coconut oil/milk in small amounts (careful... has a moderately anti-microbial effect), vitamin E, A, and D. For some reason, sea salt has helped of late, too. Lots of minerals, maybe.

Though sessions are a bit expensive, acupuncture is very helpful for bringing energy into areas of need. Energy uplifts in more ways than one. Acupuncture also has a nice supportive effect for this illness as a whole.

If that is not an option, maybe t'ai chi, chi gung, breathing practicecs, etc.

Just my opinion.

But if you can afford to get the injections every 3 months.

Botox is expensive not to mention like others have said POISON!

I would spend that $$$$ for lyme treatment!

Glutathione IV's can help aging as well! Inexpensive and good for you and your liver.
