How Ayurveda Treats Facial Palsy ?

In Ayurveda, Facial palsy, known as Ardita, is viewed as a manifestation of imbalances in the three doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Treatment focuses on restoring balance and supporting facial nerve function

What Treatments Do We Offer?

Here’s how Ayurveda approaches Facial palsy:

Understanding Ardita in Ayurveda:

  • Excess Vata: This often presents as facial paralysis, drooping eyelids, and difficulty speaking and eating. Vata governs movement and circulation, and its excess disrupts nerve function in the face.
  • Excess Pitta: This might manifest as redness, swelling, burning sensation in the affected area. Pitta is associated with heat and intensity, potentially leading to inflammation and irritation of the facial nerve.
  • Excess Kapha: This could present as sluggishness, delayed recovery, and heaviness in the affected side. Kapha represents structure and inertia, impacting nerve impulses and slowing facial muscle response.

Ayurvedic Treatment Strategies:

Important note: These approaches are meant to complement conventional medical care, not replace it. Consult a doctor and physiotherapist for proper diagnosis and management of Bell’s palsy.

Diet and Lifestyle:

  • Dosha-balancing foods: Consume foods specific to your unique dosha imbalance to promote balance and address symptoms.
    • Vata: Warm, nourishing soups, stews, whole grains, nuts, and seeds to pacify Vata and calm facial muscles.
    • Pitta: Cooling fruits, vegetables, coconut water, ghee to soothe Pitta and reduce inflammation.
    • Kapha: Light, easily digestible lentils, leafy greens, spices like ginger to stimulate nerve function and prevent sluggishness.
  • Avoid aggravating foods: Steer clear of foods that worsen your individual doshic imbalance, like cold foods for Vata, spicy foods for Pitta, and heavy dairy for Kapha.
  • Rest and relaxation: Prioritize adequate sleep and relaxation techniques like meditation. This helps manage stress and promote healing.
  • Facial exercises: Practice specific facial exercises as advised by your doctor or physiotherapist to improve muscle tone and function.

Herbal Remedies 

  • Nerve Tonics: Brahmi, Shankhapushpi, and Gotu Kola can enhance nerve function, improve nerve regeneration, and support facial muscle recovery.
  • Dosha-specific herbs: Specific herbs tailored to your dosha imbalance, like Ashwagandha for Vata, Guduchi for Pitta, and Triphala for Kapha, can further address specific symptoms.
  • Anti-inflammatory herbs: Curcumin, Turmeric, and Boswellia possess anti-inflammatory properties that might help reduce swelling and pain.
