5 Natural Homeopathic Medicines for Bell’s Palsy

Homeopathic Remedies for Bell’s Palsy

Bell’s Palsy refers to facial paralysis affecting one side of the face and is sudden in onset. The cause in most cases is not found. The cause is presumed to be inflammation of facial nerve or reactivation of a previously acquired viral infection. The viral infection mainly behind the cause is herpes viral infection. The triggers which reactivate the latent viral infection include environment changes like cold air exposure, trauma and emotional factors. Homeopathic remedies for Bell’s Palsy are made of natural substances and with no side effects, provide a very effective treatment for Bell’s Palsy.

Symptoms of Bell’s Palsy

In majority of cases, the paralysis is unilateral or occurs on one side of the face. In just 1% cases, it can be bilateral involving both sides of the face. The onset of Bell’s Palsy is always sudden. The symptoms include weakness or numbness of face on one side, drooping of face to one side, drooling of saliva, Lachrymation(watering from eyes) or dryness of eyes due  to inability to close eye on affected side, pain about the jaw and behind ear, sensitive hearing, inability to have a taste of food, and loss of facial expressions like frowning and smiling. Other symptoms include difficulty in eating and speech.

Homeopathic Treatment for Bell’s Palsy

Bell’s Palsy can be effectively treated with natural Homeopathic medicines.Homeopathic treatment for Bell’s Palsy can help in complete recovery without any side effects. The results, however, vary from person to person depending upon the chronicity and the degree of facial damage.

Top Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Bell’s Palsy

Best Homeopathic remedies for bell’s palsy due to cold air exposure

Both Aconite and Causticum are the top natural Homeopathic medicines for treating Bell’s Palsy occurring due to exposure to cold air. Aconite is used in acute conditions in the very beginning when facial paralysis follows from a sudden cold air exposure. Causticum, on the other hand, is an ideal Homeopathic remedy for longstanding chronic cases of facial paralysis where the person has a history of cold air exposure complications prior to the paralytic symptoms. The person needing Aconite may also complain of numbness or tingling in face on the affected side. The face also feels cold on the affected side in persons needing Aconite.

Hypericum: Homeopathic treatment for Bell’s Palsy due to injury to nerve

To deal with facial paralysis because of injury to nerve, the best Homeopathic medicine is Hypericum. It can be of great help in complete recovery of the patient with facial paralysis following injury. Tingling, numbness or burning sensation on the affected side of the face may be experienced in addition to other symptoms of Bell’s Palsy. Hypericum is the top natural Homeopathic remedy for nerve injuries and it always proves its worth by bringing positive results.

Ignatia: Homeopathic medicine for Bell’s Palsy due to grief

Ignatia is a very frequently used natural Homeopathic medicine for a variety of conditions arising out of grief. It is very beneficial  in Bell’s Palsy cases triggered by grief too. The person needing Ignatia has symptoms of Bell’s Palsy and may also complain of frequent biting inside of cheeks while talking or swallowing. He or she may also have the mouth filled with excess of saliva. Other symptoms of grief like weeping, brooding and sadness are also present.

Cadmium Sulph: Natural Homeopathic medicine for Bell’s Palsy due to Apoplexy

Apoplexy means paralysis arising from a sudden haemorrhagic condition. Cadmium Sulph is one of the best Homeopathic medicines for treating facial paralysis arising out of Apoplexy. The patient needing Cadmium Sulph will have a distorted face. The swallowing of food is also difficult for such persons. He or she also has difficulty in speaking properly. And there is also an inability to close the eye on the affected side.

Bacillinum and Causticum: Homeopathic remedies for facial paralysis due to suppressed eruptions of face

For treating cases of Bell’s Palsy due to suppressed facial eruptions, natural Homeopathic medicines Bacillinum and Causticum are of great help. Any one of them may serve the purpose of recovery from Bell’s Palsy where a history of suppression of eruptions of face by any means is found. It is a very significant and known fact in Homeopathy that any eruption that is not allowed to show complete skin expressions and suppressed with outer applications, like medicated creams, lotions and ointments, is bound to result in affection of inner body and that is more severe than the skin affections. Here, in such conditions of suppressed skin eruptions followed by paralysis of face, Causticum and Bacillinum are Homeopathic medicines of great help. The medicine selection can be made only by a qualified Homeopathic practitioner after proper case taking.

Homeopathic medicines as per side of face affected in Bell’s Palsy

The efficient natural Homeopathic medicines for right-sided Bell’s Palsy are Belladona, Causticum and Kali Phos. For treating left-sided Bell’s Palsy, the efficient natural Homeopathic medicines are Alumina, Cadmium Sulph and Sulphur. To select the suitable medicines out of these, a proper case investigation needs to be done. The Homeopathic remedies cannot be selected solely as per the side of face affected in facial paralysis. The side of face involved only forms a part of totality of other symptoms narrated by the patient. So, side of the face involved should be considered among other symptoms but not be made the only pointer to select the natural Homeopathic remedy.

  32. I have been diagnosed with Bells Palsy on the left side of my face. I did one week of steriods and one week of anti-viral meds. I am now doing acupuncture and taking some chinese herbs.

    My bells came after an illness – cold/sinus infection. I had a full right ear and raw throat. Then an eye infection in the right eye that moved to the left eye. I then developed a very very sore throat (starting on the right side and moving towards the left). I was starting to feel better when the bells attack occurred.

    I have the cold sore virus. I only get a cold sore about once every four years but always on the left side of my face.

    My sister uses homeopathy and is recommending Causticum. But this is not in line with your literature that indicates that is for the right side of the face.. Can you make a recommendation please.

    I am writing on behalf of my father who developed bell’s palsy two and a half day sago. At first, it was just a nuisance, but now he is extremely uncomfortable. It has affected the right side of his face only and today his right eye is more droopy than it was yesterday ( the lower lid ). I have been researching homeopathic remedies and went out and bought him hypericum. He has taken one dose today. He is ready to go to the pharmacy and pick up prednisone that his doctor will be prescribing.
    He is definitely grumpy, sensitive to light, and says that it is uncomfortable, and feels like he is coming out of novicaine. Please let me know what might be the best remedy for him to take. Thank you!
