Bell’s Palsy

Bell’s palsy is the most common cause of facial paralysis and it usually causes paralysis on just one side of the face. Symptoms of Bell’s palsy can vary from person to person and range in severity from mild weakness to total paralysis. These symptoms may include twitching, weakness, or paralysis on one or rarely both sides of the face. Other symptoms may include drooping of the eyelid and corner of the mouth, drooling, dryness of the eye or mouth, impairment of taste, and excessive tearing in one eye. Most often these symptoms, which usually begin suddenly and reach their peak within 48 hours, lead to significant facial distortion.

Other symptoms may include pain or discomfort around the jaw and behind the ear, ringing in one or both ears, headache, loss of taste, hypersensitivity to sound on the affected side, impaired speech, dizziness, and difficulty eating or drinking.

What Causes Bell’s Palsy?

Most conventional medical doctors believe the cause is due to a viral infections like herpes simplex I or viral meningitis. Bell’s Palsy has also been associated with influenza or a flu-like illness, headaches, chronic middle ear infection, high blood pressure, diabetes, sarcoidosis, tumors, Lyme disease, and trauma such as skull fracture or facial injury. When the nerve that controls the facial muscles is swollen, inflamed, or compressed, the end result is facial weakness or paralysis.

Clinical Diagnosis:

Using a very accurate energetic testing technique based on quantum physics a skilled practitioner can quickly make the diagnosis. In my clinical experience of over 53 years, the Direct Resonance testing procedure enabled me to quickly diagnose Antonette’s Bell’s Palsy. The culprit was cytomegalovirus (CMV) that was present in her right facial nerve, in her brain, and thyroid gland.


Using a non drug approach, I prescribed special herbs, like Cat’s Claw, which is very effective against CMV. Additional food based supplements were prescribed to combat the inflammation. Within two and a half weeks 98% of her symptoms were gone.

Key to Successful Treatment:

The practitioner must define the underlying cause. In this case it was CMV. Another successfully treated Bell’s Palsy case was due to Lyme. In this case the patient was bitten on her foot by a spider who carried the Lyme spirochete. Every case must be treated individually. Just using steroids to treat the symptoms in my opinion is an out dated approach. There are sophisticated modalities such as the CyberScan System, Rife frequencies, Theraphi plasma unit that can uncover the underlying stressors and effect a possible result without damaging the patient. A global approach is essential and must be applied to all medical issues. The answers are out there but requires patients and doctors to flip the rocks.
