Bell’s Palsy

Bell’s palsy is related to herpes, a virus which the majority of the population silently hosts without showing any symptoms. It is therefore strongly recommended that the patient’s diet be high in L-lysine and low in L-arginine. The herpes virus becomes dormant under high levels of L-lysine, an amino acid that is present in many fruits, vegetables, and proteins. A healthy diet is usually higher in lysine. Use the chart below to ensure that the diet is higher in lysine than arginine. It would be wise to purchase an actual L-lysine supplement and to take about 1000 mg per day and 2 to 3ooo mg if having a breakout.
Foods with Lysine: All meats, Fish, Yogurt, Cheese, Milk, Eggs, Apples, Pears, Apricots, Avocados, Pineapples, Green beans,  and Asparagus.   Foods with Arginine (Avoid) Tomatoes, Wheat Germ, Brussels sprouts, Cashews, Grapes, Pumpkin Seeds, Pecans, Blackberries, Blueberries, Peanuts, Chocolate, and Sugars.https://betterhealthherbs.com/product/2080/

The B vitamins have repeatedly been shown to help in healing damaged nerves in studies. They are also especially good for brain health, and thereby concentration. Supplementation with the B vitamins is strongly recommended. These will dramatically speed recovery.

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane has been shown to assist in the repair of nerve damage. Supplement with 500 mg. of MSM each day. Massage the paralyzed side of the face regularly with MSM/EMU salve, because this will increase the likelihood of regaining complete control of the face after the Bell’s palsy. Purchase DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) from  animal feed store and dilute to 60% (40% distilled water). DMSO is known for its miraculous effect on nerves. Make the skin surgically clean, because DMSO has special solvent properties that will drag just about any substance through the skin. Apply it thinly to the injured side of the face with cotton. An itching reaction is normal, but the excess should be removed if it causes burning. Always store in a glass container, to prevent potential chemical reactions with plastics and metals.

DMSO can be found at animal feed stores, but you will not find it at any major chains. It can also be purchased on the Internet. Caution is recommended, for misuse could result in skin burns, or possible eye injuries in the case of eye contact. Therefore, DMSO may be used AT YOUR OWN RISK. If you use DMSO, remain close to a sink in case an emergency eye wash is required. When used properly, it is very helpful for treating Bell’s palsy. You will notice more of a burning sensation in the areas of the damaged nerves, because DMSO is toxic to the invading pathogens and because these areas are already inflamed most.

 

Niacin: will improve circulation in the outer tissues, such as those of the face, to speed recovery. Some of the luckier people who fall victim to Bell’s palsy experience a tremendous improvement from a chiropractic adjustment.

Bell’s palsy is aggravated by spinal misalignments, and the virus lives in the spinal column.
