Bell's palsy/ Facial Paralysis (Facial nerve damaged) Herbs Treatment
- Research by KL Kuala Lumpur Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine
is an unexplained weakness or paralysis of the facial nerve, the nerve that controls muscle movement on one side of the face. The condition causes drooping on the affected side, and individuals may not be able to close the eye and may experience tearing, drooling and hypersensitive hearing. Although Bell's palsy/ Facial Paralysis
is unsettling and inconvenient, it is typically not indicative of a serious health problem and in most cases completely resolves itself.
Bell's palsy/ Facial Paralysis - The Facial Nerve Damaged Herbs Treatment
The nerve that is injured with Bell's palsy/ Facial Paralysis is CN-VII (7th cranial nerve). It originates in an area of the brain stem known as the Pons. The 7th nerve passes through the stylomastoid foramen and enters the parotid gland. It divides into its main branches inside the parotid gland. These branches then further divide into 7000 smaller nerve fibers that reach into the face, neck, salivary glands and the outer ear. The nerve controls the muscles of the neck, the forehead and facial expressions, as well as perceived sound volume. It also stimulates secretions of the lower jaw, the tear glands and the salivary glands in the front of the mouth. Taste sensations at the front 2/3 of the tongue and sensations at the outer ear are transmitted by the 7th nerve.
Bells Palsy is caused by an inflammation within a small bony tube called the fallopian canal. The canal is an extremely narrow area. An inflammation within it is likely to exert pressure on the nerve, compressing it. Likewise, if the nerve itself becomes inflamed within this small canal, it can encounter pressure, with the same result of compression. The nerve has not yet exited the skull and divided into its several branches, resulting in impairment of all functions controlled by the 7th nerve. If only part of the face is affected, the condition is not Bell's palsy/ Facial Paralysis. If, for example, the mouth area is weak but the forehead moves, Bells palsy is ruled out. Trauma induced by tumor, surgery, etc. can occur at a location where the nerve has already divided into its main branches. This type of trauma may spare one or more branches and allow some muscles to remain functional.
About 25/100,000 persons per year develop Bell's palsy/ Facial Paralysis. The incidence increases slightly with age. There are only minor differences in rates between the sexes and among persons of different race. There is a slightly higher incidence in the winter.
Bells palsy has numerous potential causes. It is presently thought that most cases arise from herpes simplex virus infections (the same one that gives you cold sores in your mouth as well as other variants). However, there are a wide variety of other possibilities including diabetes, sarcoid, HIV infection, and various cancers.
Individuals at increased risk for idiopathic lower motor facial palsy (i.e. facial weakness due to injury to the nerve or facial nerve nucleus in the brainstem) include pregnant women, diabetics, those who have had recent episodes of influenza or respiratory infection, and those with family history of the disease.
Other causes of facial palsy include trauma, CNS disorders, neoplasms and infectious disease (e.g. Lyme disease). Facial palsy is rarely caused by middle ear infection, where it is felt that facial nerve dehiscence may expose the nerve and make it more vulnerable. In acute cases, parenteral antibiotics and myringotomy is generally the Treatment. Surgical Treatment may be undertaken in patients with epidural abcess, cholesteatoma or mastoiditis.
