Bell's Palsy

Pharmaceutical drugs, including aspirin, break down into caustic and corrosive byproducts that eat away at the myelin sheath and thus are counterproductive to healing. http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg

"Bell's Bell's Palsy is a temporary condition where the facial muscles are paralyzed or weakened due to an inflammation of the facial nerves.


Causes and Risk Factors

While the exact cause of Bell's Palsy is unclear, the result is an inflammation of the facial nerve, which triggers reduced use of muscles on the affected side of the face. It is highly unusual for both sides of the face to be affected.

Some believe that Bell's Palsy is the result of another condition, especially viruses such as meningitis, the common cold, chicken pox, shingles, and mononeucleosis. It has also been associated with influenza, diabetes, high blood pressure, facial injury, and Lyme Disease.

Approximately 40,000 people are diagnosed with Bell's Palsy each year. It can strike at any age, but is less common among people ages 15 to 60 years old. With some, it's fairly mild and has a rapid recovery. With others, it can be quite severe and never fully gain full use of the affected facial muscles.

Women who are pregnant or have just given birth, people with diabetes, or people who have an upper respiratory infection are known to be more susceptible to Bell's Palsy.


Symptoms

People afflicted with Bell's Palsy may show one ore more symptoms, including:
  • Twitching on one side of the face
  • Drooping of an eyelid
  • Drooping of the mouth
  • Excessive tearing in one eye
  • Change in how things taste, especially on one side of the mouth
  • Jaw discomfort and/or headache
  • Ringing in an ear or hypersensitivity to sound
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty eating or drinking
Healing Options

A combination of therapies is usually used to treat Bell's Palsy, including medication, physical therapy, facial massage, acupuncture, electrical stimulation of the nerve, and vitamin therapy. Medications most commonly prescribed include corticosteroids and antiviral drugs.

People experiencing milder forms of Bell's Palsy may see improvement within two weeks of starting treatment, with a complete recover within six months.

When the eye is affected, it is usually recommended to use a lubricating eye drop to protect the surface of the eye.

Taking medications is one way-but not the only way-to decrease inflammation and the resulting pain. Other treatments include applying moist heat to the affected area, using topical natural anti-inflammatories such as ginger, turmeric, rosemary, willow bark extract, Omega-3 oils, jojoba oil, aloe vera, saw palmetto, licorice, slippery elm, lemongrass essential oil, and mint essential oil.


Dietary Intervention

Some foods can contribute to inflammation, so if you experience Bell's Palsy, consider loading your diet with foods known to have anti-inflammatory properties.

Foods you'll want to eat are:
  • Kelp
  • Wild caught Alaskan Salmon
  • Tumeric
  • Shitake mushroom
  • Green tea
  • Papaya
  • Blueberries
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Broccoli
  • Sweet Potato (which is different from a yam)
Foods you'll want to avoid are:
  • Sugars (processed, natural and raw sugars included)
  • Cooking oil (except for extra virgin olive oil)
  • Trans fats
  • Dairy from cows
  • Meat and poultry raised on a feed lot (free range is OK)
  • Red meat
  • Processed meats (such as lunch meats, salami, etc.)
  • Alcohol
  • Refined grains such as flour
  • Artificial food additives

Supplementing an anti-inflammatory diet with high doses of Vitamin B-12, Vitamin B-6, and zinc have also been known to help alleviate symptoms of Bell's Palsy.

    Q: Dear herbalist, I have beginning stages of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, triggered by a foot injury six months ago. While I will be starting physical therapy soon, I would rather not be forced to take big pharmacy medications. I love Dherbs and I hope there is a better alternative to reduce symptoms and assist with nerve repair and ultimately (hopefully) remission. Please help. I am only 30 years old. Sincerely, Rebecca

    A:

    We always recommend doing The Full Body Cleanse first to get your overall health into a better place, your body is always more receptive to healing when it's in a healthier state. You should do the Nerve Cleanse and Regimen to specifically help bring recovery to your nerves. After cleansing we suggest continuing with the Nerves Formula and the Central Nervous System supplement. If you're looking for a supplement to assist with pain we suggest trying the Headache and Pain Formula.

    Q: What Can I Do For Lyme's Disease?

    A:

    Lyme disease is an acute, recurrent inflammatory infection, transmitted by a tick-borne spirochete, Barriela burgdorferi. Knees, other large joints, and temporomandibular joints are most commonly involved, with local inflammation and swelling. Chills, fever, headache, malaise, and erythema chronicum migrans (ECM), an expanding annular, erythematous skin eruption, often precede the joint manifestations. Occasionally cardiac condition abnormalities, aseptic meningitis, and Bell's Palsy are associated conditions. Recommendation: Perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN, followed by the 10-DAY SUPREME BLOOD CLEANSE respectively. While performing these cleanses, perform the "SEA SALT SOAK" (see our article by the same title located in our articles section on our website). You may want to add a few drops of LICE AND MITE BUSTER into the bath water (which is perfectly safe). After bathing, apply HEALING SKIN OIL to the skin of the body. Repeat the above process as much as needed to heal from the condition. Please read our MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL to keep a positive and healthy mindset and attitude while in the process of healing. You can heal!

    Q: I am 58 years old 5'9.5" 145lbs. I have diabetes, hepatitis "C", high blood pressure, chronic renal disease and asthma. Where do I start? What do you suggest? If it would help I could fax my last blood work result.

    A:

    There is healing for you, Beloved! For diabetes, perform the Pancreas Kit and Regimen. For Hepatitis C, perform the FULL BODY DETOX. For high blood pressure, the FULL BODY DETOX will work for this as well. For asthma, perform the RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. Chronic renal disease? The RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMEN will also help for this too! So basically, you need to perform the Full Body Detox. After you perform your cleanses, make sure your diet is correct: cut out or cut back meat, and dairy products, refined grains and starches, etc. Avoid pharmaceutical meds. Bathe in sea salt (add 1 box) every day. Dietary and lifestyle change is the key!!!!
