I don't think so. The name doesn't set off any alarms for me. Was Bell in the papers recently? Who is he? What type of palsy treatment is he going for?

My friend had Bell's Palsy, not much that can be done usually. Sometimes a doctor may prescribe steroids or acyclovir, but no guarantee of improvement. Rest of recovery are the best option I am afraid. Good luck with that.
There's always room for one more

Hi rasiganbalu,

'Bell Palsy' is like your facial nerve is having infection that make it tight, sometime u cannot close one eye and one side of your mouth looks like 'drop' abit.

The treatment can be aculpuncture (hope i spell it rite.)
The chinese dor in changi hospital is good.

a session about $30. they put needles on the face each session and will helps the condition if you follow up closely.

Hope it helps. :)
