Bell's Palsy

Bell's palsy is a paralysis of cranial nerve VII (the facial nerve) resulting in inability to control facial muscles on the affected side. This condition may be caused by a viral infection, such as herpes zoster (commonly known as shingles). If you experience pain with this complaint, please see your physician as soon as possible.

Bellís palsy must be treated immediately. In most cases, you may notice when you first look in the mirror in the morning Ė it shocks you and you donít know how it happened. If you have Bellís palsy, one corner of your mouth may droop and you may have difficulty retaining saliva on that side of your mouth. The eye on the affected side may close partially and tears may leak from the eye. In worse cases, the tongue and ear are affected.

Most often, this disorder is temporary. However, some people suffer irreversible damage. In most cases, 80% of people with a mild case of Bellís palsy can recover within one month. With Chinese medicine, the treatment can speed up recovery and help return you to 99% normal. Time is of the essence Ė the earlier the treatment, the better the recovery.

If you have Bellís palsy, you should seek treatment as soon as possible.  I can successfully treat you in my office for Bell's palsy. I have over 40+ years of experience and acupuncture for these types of complaints are highly effective.
