Bell's Palsy?!

For many of us, we have no idea what Bell's Palsy is. In our case, it was one of those things you know nothing about until one day it literally smacks you in the face and now you have to deal with it!

 Last year, my sweet husband got Bell's Palsy out the blue. We had no idea what happened to him or his face! He woke up one morning and as he was brushing his teeth, he noticed that half of his face wasn't working. It was terrifying! So we rushed him to the ER. We were very concerned that he suffered a stroke and I can't tell you how afraid I was that day.

He went through many tests and was eventually diagnosed with Bell's Palsy. For those of you who have no idea what this, it is essentially facial paralysis. SCARY!!

We had never even heard of this before! Jeff started to film and upload a daily video on YouTube of what he was going through as a way of dealing with it. He learned so much about it and really connected with people who were going through the same thing. YouTube is an amazing resource in so many ways!!

One day on Instagram, I noticed someone had posted a picture of Doterra oils. So we talked with Jeff's aunt who sells them and she brought over a whole bunch of oils! She gave us very specific directions on how to use them and when. The day we started using these on Jeff, he stopped getting worse! I kid you not, I'm not exaggerating, this is absolute FACT!

It was an amazing thing to witness and I will swear by these wonderful oils, no matter how bad the smell bothers me...I'm just really sensitive to smells. :)

Needless to say, it took him a few weeks to heal, whereas a lot of people can take closer to a year or more. If you know anyone going through this, I would highly suggest they look into these oils. They are amazing and with a great, positive attitude, Jeff came out of his very quickly!

**Click here to check out his first video to see the comparison, its quite amazing! Also, check out the rest of his YouTube videos here. He made a daily series of coping with Bell's Palsy and how he recovered so quickly!!**

I hope this helps you or anyone you know going through this strange and unfortunate trial!! Please be sure to pass this information on to anyone you may know who could be suffering with this. I hope this will help other people the way it helped Jeff. It was truly an amazing thing and I wish the best for those going through this scary time!
