Bell's palsy is a rare condition, and according to the recent statistics, between 25 and 35 in 100,000 people in the United States are affected by it.
This condition is characterized by the state when one muscle becomes weak or paralyzed on one side of the face. It can happen with anyone, but people with diabetes and viral infections are considered to be more affected.
Angelina Jolie’s facial paralysis
As reported, Angelina Jolie was suffering from it while going through the divorce with Brad Pitt. The famous actress developed Bell’s palsy in addition to hypertension. As a result, one side of her face started to droop, which made Jolie look somehow different.
The process of divorce was a hard period for Angelina Jolie, which made an impact on her health.
Sometimes women in families put themselves last, until it manifests itself in their own health.
Fortunately, the actress feels fine now: she managed to recover fully due to acupuncture.
By the way, Angelina Jolie also had a double mastectomy to reduce breast cancer risk, and she also had her ovaries removed in order to avoid ovarian cancer.
Due to Jolie’s faulty gene, she was more likely to suffer from breast or ovarian cancer. What a strong woman she is!
