I am 2 months into dealing withc Bell's Palsy and have had limited success. Was given steroids and anti virals for the first week. Have had 20 acupuncture treatments. My biggest problem is I still can't close my right eye. I would appreciate any suggestions that seem to work. Thanks, Don J
I went to a doctor for bells palsy and he said the only thing he could do was give me a steroid shot which did nothing. Days later I went to an accupuncturist who told me she had good results with this condition, but it may take several sessions. I must have been lucky because I had one session and my face was completely back to normal. Accupuncture is wonderful for many things.

Need to know if any ayurvedic treatment are available for Bells Palsy?
Hello, 4 year ago I suffered from facial palsy... And now my mouth is traction one side.... if there is any solution for such contact me as soon as possible.
I had a client with Bell's Palsy. She came to me and I had her massage her face with the Black Seed and Habbatus Sauda oils and take it internally too. She took 1 teaspoon of black seed oil daily with some honey. It is best to take the oil 1/2 hour before breakfast.
Her testimony is that her face returned 110%.
"I've been putting it on my face full strength since the Bells Palsy with great results and no reactions of any kind so I think it's safe. My face is nearly back to normal.
I did not feel hurt or pain w/ my bell's palsy, sometimes I feel numb here at my lower cheek, the only thing that I did was to hot compress to my face, massage every night, and i'll take polynerv 500mg. Is this helpful for me? I want to try this habbatus sauda, black seed oil, and kilonji oil, is this available in all drug store? And what are the procedures for this? Mr. Ted, I need ur help, pls?

My son had bell palsy 4 times. The first time he has when he was 6 yrs old, and Dr gave him steroid and he recovered. The 2nd time, he had it when he was 9 yrs old and again Dr gave him steroid but it took 2 mths before he recovered. The 3rd time, had when he was 11 yrs old, and Dr gave him steroid and he had to go for MRI, blood test etc, and the results came out negative but it took him 6 mths to recover, and he had to go for accupressure and craniasacral treatment. At 12 yrs old, got it again, and given steroid but no changes so this time I gave him black seed oil, habbatus sauda, kalonji oil for 2 mths, 450 mg 3x a day , his face is back to normal.

Seven years ago, I came down with Bells Palsy on the left side of my face. My eye was affected a great deal. I was having great muscle spasms in my left eye and suffering with pain. The doctor started giving me Botox Injections around my eye, every three month. This helps a lot. However, three weeks ago I came down with Bells Palsy on the right side of my face!!! Needless to say, I was shocked. Guess I'll be getting Botox in both eyes... I need my smile back...
I successfully used castor oil packs for Bells Palsy which my co- worker contracted. I was beginning to have double vision and my eyes were inflamed. I used the pack on both eyes one hour nightly for 3 nights but the directions called for 4 nights. Well, I got busy and didn't do the 4th night and the symptoms returned until I completed the 4 nights in a row...No more problem at all.
Also, for me the packs are a great pain reliever. I used just the castor oil right on my cheek when I had an infected tooth. Still had to go to a dentist but CO stopped the pain immediately!
Also, used it to remove a wart on my son's toe. Each night applied CO put a sock on him until the wart was gone which was less than a week.

I just passed by Bells Palsy page here to get some information for my son... For I had been a patient of this condition... For I am looking for some natural remedy.... My first time was when I was seven and then I was treated with electric shock waves for it was so shocking that I became a shy kid...
Next was when I was a teenager and treated with old fashion grandman home herbals hot steams remedy covering my whole face for some time then going to bed without letting no cold breeze hit you....
Third it was in NYC around the age of thirty or less cannot recall, I was panic, and went to one hospital then to another.. Visiting three hospital with no results.... Just stating that, "The same way it came it will go away".
To all out there that believe this... It is not true.... You can permanently stay like that.... I was real frighten...
An angel put a lady telling to go to a chiropratric..... I faithfully did go.... Starting every day for two weeks then three time a week and in a month my face was back to normal.... For I am thankfull.... But this condition can come for diffrent reasons.
My son's palsy is from an ear infection.... It can come from stress... My palsy came from drastic temperature body from heat to cold or viceversa which in spanish is called un Pasmo..... I advise whoever suffer from this Bell's Palsy to take immediate action for it can become permantly no matter who saids differently.
When I was 6 years old, I had Bells palsy. My mother took me to a chiropractor and it cleared up. I am now 51 with no reoccurences. Hope this helps.
When I was about 6 years old (over 40 years ago), I had Bells Palsy. My mother took me to a chiroprator for a few sessions and I was cured.
Hi, I developed a facial palsy about 5 years ago. I only recovered about 50-60%. I don't have any drooping on my face, but my smile is still very lopsided. Also, when I smile, the eye on the affected side tries to close, and my chin is still dimpled. Last, every time I catch a cold or any kind of upper respiratory infection, I get pain behind my ear in the exact same spot as when the palsy first started. Do you think I could benefit from using the colloidal silver at this point so much later? Thanks for any advice you may have.
I awoke about a year ago with one side of my face severely swollen and paralyzed. My ear was bothering me and I thought it was just a very bad ear infection. When I went to my doctor he said I had Bells Palsy and it should go away in a few weeks to months. He also asked if I had been in an accident. After three months of getting no better, I went to my chiropractor and she took xrays stating that I had been in an accident. I thougth car wreck when I heard that and insisted that "no" I had not been in an accident. She showed me the xray showing whip lash. I thought about it and recalled that 2 days before I woke up swollen my daughter had been swinging her arms as we walked through the park.. she caught my chin and in one swoop my teeth hit together hard. She saw what she had done and began crying. I checked my teeth then forgot about it.. trying to console her. I had no pain, no apparent cracked teeth and no bleeding.. so I forgot about it until I saw that I had pain free whiplash: I had asked my doctor if a neglected tooth could've caused my problem.. I also asked my dentist.. they both said "no." I had the tooth in question fixed after 3 months of looking like a monster. My face "centered" within hours. again.. no pain at all. the root canal failed in 2 months.. I still had a palsy.. long story short, for a year I had to go into the dentist and convince him that I had a fracture in a tooth.. 5 teeth were removed as a root canal does not hold in a cracked root. I also went to Quantum Energetics and discovered some bone toxins from my bouts with the cracked roots that apparently do not show up on dental x rays but DO cause a seepage of infection. After the last tooth and QE and a year, I now have most of my smile back. I spent a year looking like a monster and paying repeatedly for dentist visits to convince them I needed my teeth pulled.. each time that was the only thing that made me better. Now I know that a cracked root is something they cannot see.. .a tooth problem contrary to what they told me CAN cause Bells Palsy and I probably would've become very very sick from all the dental poisons had I not done my own research and insisted on what needed to be done.
Please ascertain that your "Bells Palsy" is not from a dental problem.. also check for lyme disease and try a natural antiviral.. I hate that anyone else is suffering as I did.. it's hurtful.
I know for me Bell's Palsy had nothing to do with chicken pox, shingles, cold sores virus etc. I've never suffered from any of that. I also don't have Lyme's Disease. Dental doesn't seem to be a concern either. I did help lift a person who grabbed my neck to assist in the lifting, and then 2 days later woke up with a pain in the base of my skull and cramps behind my ear. About 15 minutes later my mouth went numb and I had trouble blinking my eye. Next thing I knew, my right side was paralyzed from moving but I never lost any feeling. My hearing in my right ear became super-human. Someone whispers and it sounds like they are screaming. I tried a chiropractor and it seemed to make matters worse for me, but I don't want to discourage anyone from seeking that as an option. In my case I believed a pinched nerve or something like that was the culprit. So I started a daily routine 6 weeks ago. WATER ONLY. I've drank nothing but water. Organic fruit and vegetables. Started taking sublingual B-12, B-12 tabs, Lysine, Calcium, Flax Oil, Omega-3 and B-6. These I found at Walmart for reasonable prices. I doubled the recommended doses for myself, and I took as much B-12 as I could stand because it's supposed to be harmless. I then started taking Colloidal Silver immediately, which was just a precaution in the event that I somehow had an infection. I could only find Colloidal Silver in a healthfood store, but Walgreen's offered to order it for me. I just didn't want to wait for it. I fasted for a day, drinking water when I felt hungry.
I don't know if any of this truly worked for me or not, it may be a placebo effect or just natural course, but I'm 6 weeks in and I've regained the ability to move my nostril, my speech is no longer slurred, I can blink my eye with no problem. I still can't lift my eyebrow, and when I smile my right corner still droops. Did the vitamins and diet work? I don't know. Was it the chiropractor? I don't know either. I'm still going to continue taking them cause even if they didn't work, they made me feel as though I was doing something to better myself. I also used a back massager and massaged my face every 2 hours to stimulate the nerves. I practice A E I O U and exagerate the formation of the letters with my mouth. I hold my eyebrow in place as I mentally think about lifting them, and then lift my left one. I do the same with the corner of my mouth. I've still got some recovering to do. I know B-12 and B-6 are good for your nerve endings and muscles. For a few bucks it's worth a try right?
