Ayurvedic treatment for  Facial Paralysis or Bell's Palsy

The most common form of the facial paralysis is Bell’ Palsy. It is the paralysis of the one side of the face due to the weakness and could result in the loss of control over the facial muscles on the affected side. It could develop suddenly without any other symptom and you could see the maximum weakness within 48 hours. Some medical organizations believe that some viruses cause this disease, however the exact cause is still a mystery. Facial nerve controls the movement of the muscles of the face and whenever this nerve starts swelling, you face some sort of certain troubles. This is when the Bell’s Palsy comes into the picture. It may occur because of the certain infections that involve the herpes virus and in some cases of nerve inflammation. They damage a protective sheath around the nerve cells, making transmission of signals from the brain hard to receive, which causes numbness of the surrounding muscle.

It may originate from various kinds of damage to the seventh nerve, i.e. Facial. The facial nerve plays a crucial role in emotional expression. Bell’s palsy disfigures or distorts the facial appearance. Some studies in the past have found that the Bell’s palsy is treatable to a complete cure in the early stages of development of symptoms. Several oral administrations of various medicines have been described in texts and are being used with fruitful results.

During a Bell’s palsy disease, there are not any specific foods you should eat to help treat or correct the problem. However, as with any disease or illness, it’s important to maintain a healthy, nutritious and balanced diet. Foods rich in Vitamin B-12, B-6, folate, zinc and Vitamin D improve nerve repair and regeneration. So, we recommend the things that have these in them.
