Bell’s palsy is a condition that causes the facial muscles to weaken or become paralyzed. It's caused by trauma to the 7th cranial nerve. Facial palsy is typified by inability to control movement in the facial muscles. The paralysis is of the infranuclear/lower motor neuron type.
Bells palsy is not as uncommon as is generally believed. In human terms this is 1 of every 5000 people, every year.
Causes Bell’s Palsy
Although the exact causes of Bell's palsy are not known, the condition is thought to be brought upon due to inflammation and swelling of the facial nerve. This in turn could be due to:
-Viral infections such as herpes, mumps, influenza, infectious mononucleosis or HIV
-Bacterial infections such as Lyme disease or Tuberculosis
-Chronic disease such as diabetes
-Traumatic injury to the face or head
-Tumor causing nerve compression
The facial nerves control a number of functions, such as blinking and closing the eyes, smiling, frowning, lacrimation, and salivation. They also innervate the stapedial muscles of the middle ear and carry taste sensations from the anterior two thirds of the tongue. So, these functions will be altered.
The main symptom of Bell's palsy is a sudden weakness or paralysis in one side of your face that causes it to droop. This may make it hard for you to close your eye on that side of your face.
A Homoeopathic approach to Bell’s palsy often works best in combination with other therapies.

Under the guidance of homeopath, homeopathic remedies will be successfully incorporated into your treatment plan.
