This condition is caused by the compression of the median nerve which is located in the wrist. It results in numbness, tingling, and pain in the hand and arm. CTS makes it difficult for people to carry out simple tasks and as a result, they opt for surgery to correct it. However, these surgeries only alleviate symptoms and do not cure the condition. They’re also costly if you live in the USA. What most people and even some doctors don’t know is that this condition can actually be significantly improved with the use of one nutrient that tends to be deficient in these patients.
In this video, I discuss the use of this nutrient and its clinical efficacy.
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
- This is a condition characterized by compression of the median nerve.
- This results in pain, numbness, tingling, and discomfort in the hand, most commonly in the thumb, middle and index fingers, however, it may affect the whole hand.
- Some patients experience this as an ache, that can sometimes extend up the arm to the neck and shoulders as well.
- This can affect a person’s ability to carry out simple tasks such as writing, typing, cleaning or any other activity that requires work with your hands.
Remedies for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
While most people use anti-inflammatories, painkillers and even surgery, what most people don’t know is that Vitamin B6 is a clinically proven treatment option for this condition. In clinical research, Vitamin B6 effectively treats the symptoms of this condition and is now being considered an excellent alternative to surgery (see study). Be careful when supplementing with Vitamin B6 as it can be harmful if used in high doses – hence, you should use it with a doctors supervision.
The Vitamin B6 supplement I use with patients is this one.
Also known as serratiopeptidase, is a proteolytic enzyme produced by Silkworms and is used in treating various pain-related conditions such as osteoporosis, migraines, fibromyalgia, back pain and is also clinically effective in Carpal tunnel syndrome – (see study).
The Serrapeptase supplement I use with patients is this one.
Chamomile is a medicinal herb that has been used for centuries to treat a wide-range of conditions including dysmenorrhea, insomnia, mastalgia, and PMS. However, in these conditions, Chamomile is used internally. In the case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Chamomile Oil used topically appears to improve symptoms in mild-to-moderate (see study) as well as severe cases (see study).
