Too embarassed to buy one? I was too embarassed to read the article!
Would the psychics have passed the test if they'd walked in and said, "There's no point doing this - we're going to fail"? I'll get Bertrand Russell's coat.

Re Bell's palsy, I had it on the left side if my face in 2002. I was 36. It was a little scary losing all expression on one side of my face but I made an almost 100% recovery over a three to six month period. As soon as I was diagnosed I took course of steroids for 5 days then sort holistic treatment - acupuncture and electro-acupuncture and I do believe that this treatment was instrumental to my full recovery. Facial exercises can also help. I recommend that John Sudworth should seek holistic remedy if possible.
