A recent diagnosis of my 2-mth loss of smell and taste has been attributed to olfactory nerve damage from a (random-toxic) virus, that hit me with a respiratory infection. Medical science says that the damage is done, and that the nerve/cells will most likely not regenerate. Could acupunture be helpful to repair the damaged cells and possibly restore my sense of smell? If so, what specifically should be done?
Your advice would be so greatly appreciated. Western medicine and 3 docs have said "sorry - there's nothing more we can do."
