The most effective way to treat botulism is with botulinum antitoxin type ABCDEF. The antitoxin binds to the free toxins, neutralizes these, stops progression and shortens the duration of the disease. Antitoxin therapy has the greatest effect as early as possible and should be initiated within 7-10 days after symptom onset.

The method for testing for botulism is with a so-called “mouse test”. Serum blood is injected from the sick into a live mouse … if the mouse dies or it gets cramps it is a sign of poisoning.

Alternative methods of detoxification:

Note: it is important not to start detoxification on your own! There are networks and fb groups where you can help each other with detoxification and give good advice. Since we are individual, what works well on one may be ineffective on the other – or at worst: make things worse. 


There is little you can do to curb poisoning: by consuming the trace element copper (available as a dietary supplement).

Copper is actually toxic to the body in greater quantities, but by a botox poisoning it can actually curb the toxic effects of the poison. See the article here:

Activated charcoal

Activated charcoal is a safe and effective treatment that is used in emergency rooms around the world to treat poisoning. Can be purchased at health food stores. (Do not confuse with the cool you put in the grill) . Read more about activated charcoal as a dietary supplement here:

Nitrophenyl psoralen

Nitrophenyl psoralen is an alternative to antitoxin. It is a substance found naturally in various herbs / plants (including leaf celery). It has been researched and found that it can fight toxins such as botulinum A:

“The study found that a compound called nitrophenyl psoralen was capable of inhibiting the type A botulinum neurotoxin. The researchers remark that small molecules, like the one above, are relatively more stable and have better cell permeability, making them more competent to fight such toxins.”

Foods containing psoralen:

cumin seeds, carrots, celeriac, celery, chervil, coriander, coriander seeds, cumin, dill, fennel seeds, figs, grapefruit, lemons, lime fruit, leaves, mustard seeds, parsley, parsnip, red parsley.


Someone has experienced relief with TRS, which is nanozeolite. Zeolite (which in Greek means “cooking stone”) is an aqueous aluminum silicate. Aluminum silicate is minerals made up of aluminum, silicon and oxygen (See: ). The type of aluminum that Zeolite contains should not be absorbed into the body:


One article suggests the drug Pyridostigmine for the treatment of serious side effects from botox – e.g. shortness of breath. Pyridostigmine prevents the body from breaking down the chemical mediator acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is the signaling agent that is formed in the nerve cells that signal to most organs of the abdominal cavity and chest. Botulinum toxin prevents the release of acetylcholine. The article therefore concludes that it is sensible to use the drug Pyridostigmine to prevent the body from breaking down the signal substance so that the muscle can be activated better.

Oxygen therapy

Indeed, one of the botulinum toxin’s worst enemies is oxygen, because botulism develops under oxygen-poor conditions. Therefore, many have good effects of oxygen treatments if they have had severe side effects after botox. But the treatment is also used for many other things: against cancer, scuba diving and wound healing. Oxygen therapy is also treated at the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen (although not against botox poisoning, as botox poisoning is not recognized). On the other hand, you can buy the treatment privately at various clinics in Europe, and if you live in the US, the well-known hospital Mayo Clinic also has the treatment:


To repair damaged nerves. Good for the brain:

Coffee enemas

Many have had good experiences with coffee enemas, which is a slightly reverse way of consuming coffee, since the coffee must be introduced into the rectum rather than taken orally. But the treatment is used in alternative circles as it should have detoxifying effect on the liver.

Avoid Zinc

“Botulinum toxin acts on cholinergic nerve endings to block vesicle fusion and exocytosis. The toxin exerts this effect by proceeding through a sequence of events that involves binding to the plasma membrane, internalization, and eventual expression of an intracellular poisoning action. The final step is known to be enzymatic in nature; botulinum toxin is a ZINC-DEPENDENT metalloendoprotease that cleaves peptide, that govern exocytosis”.

Copper has the exact opposite effect and prevents botulism from being transported to the cells.
