Bell's Palsy

Bell’s Palsy is a condition which causes paralysis or a temporary weakness of the facial muscles. It occurs when the nerve innervating the facial muscles get inflamed, swollen or compressed.

Bell’s palsy is named after the anatomist Charles bell who was the first to describe this condition. This condition causes one side of the face to droop or become stiff and immobile. Person may experience difficulty in smiling or difficulty in eating, difficulty in closing the eyes on the affected side. Bell’s palsy is temporary and all the symptoms usually disappear after a few weeks.

“Homoeopathy provides a great role and effective treatment in case of bell’s palsy. Homoeopathic medicines, being the genuine and harmless, can always be prescribed to the patient of bell’s palsy after a detailed and complete case taking on the basis of symptom similarity and characteristic individuality.”


Bell’s palsy occurs when the 7th nerve (facial nerve) gets compressed or swollen and leads to paralysis or weakness(paresis). The cause in most of the cases is not found. Viral infection is thought to be one of the most common triggering factors for the development of bell’s palsy. Those viruses or bacteria which have been linked with the bell’s palsy include: Herpes simplex (which causes cold sores and genital herpes), Herpes zoster (which causes chickenpox and shingles), Epstein barr virus (which causes mononucleosis),
HIV (which damages the immune system)
Risk factors include:Exposure to cold air, Trauma, Emotional Factors, Lung Infection, Family History, Diabetes, Pregnancy

An Expert Opinion by Dr.Mankads

Neuronal system is one of the most important systems of the body. Any disturbance in the affects quality of life & life span significantly. The balance of Neurological functions is also very delicate & interdependent on many factors i.e. functions of cardiovascular system, hormonal functions, immune behaviour, genetic predispositions, stress etc. Homeopathy is playing a key role in establishing healthy neurological functions. We have seen lots of patient’s whose Parkinson’s diseases progress has stopped after homeopathic medicines. We have also taken an exposure to the patients of multiple sclerosis & have seen re-joining their routines. Myesthenia Gravis is one of such diseases in which the homeopathic medicines have always helped. Generally in other various branches of medicines like allopathy, the patient is being prescribed the medicines which one needs to take for the life time but they side effects which becomes the other challenge. But in such cases when you start a homeopathic treatment; in spite the fact that this also you need to continue for a significantly long time or may be life time, but these medicines are having no side effects. So, it’s extremely recommended that if you have any of the neurological disorder Homoeopathy is one of the most appropriate choice of medicine.
