Q. I read your article about celery easing blood pressure. I don’t have high blood pressure but I swear that celery helped cure my Bell’s Palsy.
Several years ago I was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy and was horrified when my specialist told me that it could last for 3 months to 3 years. The first few days I rarely slept because I was searching online for a cure. (There isn’t one.)
About a week into my search I found an article about a lady who ate celery several times a day. Her symptoms got better every day.
I ate celery several times a day for two weeks and noticed things getting better. I continued this for two months and my symptoms stopped altogether. I can’t explain it (nor could my doctor) but I am convinced this cured my Bell’s Palsy.
A. Bell’s palsy is a paralysis of the nerve on one side of the face, affecting sensation and muscle movement. It usually clears up by itself, and that might be what happened to you. But celery certainly can’t hurt and if it helps, so much the better.
