Bell’s Palsy commonly referred to as facial paralysis is a condition that causes temporary weakness or paralysis of one side of the face.
Symptoms can vary from person to person but can be described as; partial palsy – where a mild muscular weakness is presented or complete palsy where no movement is possible at all (Although this is quite rare).
The exact cause is still unknown although it is thought that the facial nerves become inflamed as a result of contracting a viral infection.
About 7 out of 10 people make a complete recovery without any form of treatment. Conventional treatment can include the use of steroids to reduce the inflammation.
Homeopathic treatment can sometimes bring relief and the following remedies need to be studied:
– Cadmium sulphuratum
– Nux vomica
Please consult a trained homeopath for more information.
