Bell’s Palsy in Chinese Herbs
Bell’s Palsy is a condition that usually affects half of the face and can be emotionally devastating to the person affected. According to traditional Chinese medicine, trigeminal neuralgia and facial paralysis are two conditions characterized by wind attacking the channels and collaterals in the facial regions, leading to blocked circulation of qi and blood. As a result, there is often severe pain, numbness, loss of muscle tone, and paralysis of the muscles. Optimal treatment of this condition requires use of herbs to release exterior wind, open the channels and collaterals, and activate qi and blood circulation.
