It usually improves over time.

HOW AYURVEDA HELPS?
Bell’s palsy is similar to Ardita in Ayurveda, where the Vata dosha becomes vitiated due to nidan sevan. The vata that is out of control moves to the face and becomes impaled in the relevant nerves, veins, and arteries. This blockage causes the adjacent nerves to work less efficiently, leading to symptoms of Ardita.
Bell’s palsy can be treated with Ayurvedic, which aim to balance vitiated doshas. Furthermore, panchakarma treatments detoxify the entire body. Additionally, internal treatments are given to balance the vitiated doshas.
