As I was watching channel 2 news this morning, I noticed a story about a young mother who woke up in the morning with half of her face drooping. She was terrified that it might be a stroke, but soon found out, after a visit to her family doctor, that it was not a stroke at all, but something called Bell’s Palsy.
Her doctors did not have any answers for her. They did not know how long the facial paralysis would last or if it would ever go away at all. They told her she would just have to wait and see.
This is a scary feeling for anyone who has ever experienced this type of paralysis, and it can happen to young people as well as old.
Even though Bell’s Palsy was discovered in the 1880’s, modern medicine still doesn’t know much about it.
Dr Summer Gibson is a neurologist at the University of Utah Clinical Neurosciences Center. She said the rare disorder affects one in 40,000 people and they can’t even guess how long the paralysis will last or who it will hit.
This is something that affects your everyday interaction with people because it affects your facial expressions. It can affect your hearing, your taste, and even your vision.
Bell’s Palsy is named for Sir Charles Bell, a 19th century Scottish surgeon who described the 7th cranial nerve which is a pair of facial nerves, and its connection to the condition. Generally Bell’s Palsy only affects one of the pair of nerves, causing the drooping of only half of the face.
At Quantum Techniques we have the ability to zero in on the 7th cranial nerve, and find out what is blocking its ability to do it’s job. It is commonly known that many times this problem occurs after a viral infection. It can also be caused by the herpes virus.
At Quantum Techniques, we use muscle testing to find the cause. In many cases the pathogens and toxins and any other issue can be easily cleared restoring nerve function to the facial muscles.
If you or someone you know is suffering with this type of paralysis give us a call at Quantum Techniques.
Healing may be a lot easier than you thought.
