Bell’s Palsy

Successes in treating Bell's Palsy

Approximately 60% of Bell's Palsy patients recover spontaneously. Often Western doctors prescribe prednisone or do nothing. The treatment with prednisone is controversial, and some believe that it helps only if given within the first 3 days of onset. Spontaneous recovery may take 6 months or more, and is sometimes incomplete, leaving some permanent disfigurement or sequelae.

Waiting for spontaneous recovery is like waiting for rain to revive your dwindling plant. Who knows when it is going to rain? Be proactive and take charge of your recovery. We can help you.

Scalp acupuncture applied in our clinic has helped numerous patients recover FULLY and QUICKLY. Prompt intervention is essential. If a patient starts his treatment within 1 or 2 days of onset, he is likely to recover completely with 10 to 15 treatments, given daily. In other words, your face restores to normal in just 2 weeks. This is faster than any medicine or other modalities.

What if your condition is already more than one week or one month? Our treatment is still effective. It just takes more time.

We are proud to say that we have 99% success rate in achieving COMPLETE 100% recovery.We have treated facial palsies due to various causes: viral infections, nerve damage from surgical procedures, compression from tumor, head trauma, as well as idiopathic Bell's Palsy.

How do you prevent Bell's Palsy?

Most idiopathic Bell's Palsy are caused by exposure to cold wind, and can be prevented.

Avoid exposure of your face and neck to cold wind.
Do not sit close to air-conditioners. We have seen several cases in which the patients woke up from a nap in an airplane to find that their faces became numb and paralyzed. They had cold air jets blowing on their face from the air-conditioning.
Do not sleep under open windows.
Wrap a scarf around your neck when you stroll on the beach on cold or windy days.
Most importantly, do not overwork or become too stressed, because Bell's Palsy only hits you when your immunity is low.
