Hi,

I have a family member who just came down with Bell's Palsy where the face goes numb. Has anyone ever heard of a relation to Candida?

Thanks,
Joanna

Bell's Palsy is usually associated with a herpes infection. To heal the nerve, you need B12. According to a Life Extension article, you want to use methyl-B12 intramuscular injections or sublingual methyl-B12 along with the usual anti-virals.

However, might I suggest that you either use the nasal methyl-B12 spray that Stan Kurtz has found effective or you use the special subdermal methyl-B12 shots that James A. Neubrander, MD has found effective. Either of these methods will work better than the typical intramuscular shots or the sublingual B12. My suggestion/guess is that you first try the nasal spray, since that entry is closer to the site of injury.

You can purchase the methyl-B12 liquid from "New Beginnings." The product is called methylmate. They may ask you if you want a free spray bottle. Say yes. Legally, they can only suggest that you use the spray under the tongue. However, everyone uses it in the nose. Two sprays per day for an adult. There are very few contraindications for using B12 intranasally. You can look them up for the cyano-B12 drug and assume the precautions are very similar. Here is the link to that.

If one has Irritable Bowel Syndrome, very often you have Candida, an overgrowth of bacteria, parasites,or even viruses playing a part in the situation. They all may be part of what is happening. However, you may have one predominant problem. If there is an overgrowth of bacteria in the small bowel, these bacteria will break the bonds between intrinsic factor and B12, thus interfering with the absorption of B12. If you have mercury poisoning, then your body has a difficult time of turning regular B12 into methyl-B12. Also, the mercury sets up an environment in the intestines that is conducive to yeast overgrowth and dysbiosis.

Vitamin B12 has also been documented to improve the symptoms of Bell’s palsy. In one study, three groups of patients were tested: one received methylcobalamin (vitamin B12), one received corticosteroids, and the third received methylcobalamin in combination with corticosteroids. At the end of the study, the patients in both methylcobalamin groups showed greater improvement in their symptoms than those in the corticosteroid group (Jalaludin MA 1995).

Life Extension Foundation Recommendations

Patients with Bell’s palsy might want to wear eye protection, if directed by a physician. The standard therapy for Bell’s palsy is antiviral drugs combined with corticosteroids. This treatment may be enhanced by taking the following supplements:

* Methylcobalamin—500 micrograms (mcg) three times weekly by intramuscular injection or 5 milligrams (mg) sublingual lozenges. A suggested dose is 40 to 80 mg daily until symptoms subside.
* Omega-3 fish oil—1400 mg EPA and 1000 mg DHA

RE: Bell's Palsy
Calcium and lysine help keep herpes viruses under control. Wild oregano and cloves are common herbs that can help with herpes infections. There are many other herbs that might help as well, like Hyssop, Rock rose, lemon verbena, savory, cumin, tansy, yarrow and angelica. Read about them and / or get professional help before using them. A drug for parasites called Alinia also has anti-viral properties. Vitamin C and D help control viruses. Lauracidin helps eliminate herpes and other lipid envelope viruses.
