carpal tunnel

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be an incredibly frustrating condition that frequently disrupts a person’s ability to get quality sleep, perform their job, and simple daily activities that at one time many took for granted.  It’s a condition that is most frequently characterized by pain in the wrist area but can also include symptoms of pins and needles or numbness and tingling in the hands and fingers, or in the arms up to the elbow.  When the condition gets really bad, some people even have difficulty grabbing onto objects like holding a glass of water.

The source of Carpal Tunnel

The wrist and elbow are potential nerve entrapment sites causing symptoms of Carpal Tunnel and need to be examined by a qualified healthcare practitioner.  The most commonly overlooked source of carpal tunnel symptoms come from nerve roots in the neck.  In fact, a study in in the Journal Lancet showed that up to 75% of carpal tunnel patients had a nerve problem in their neck.  It’s for this reason I strongly suggest that anyone displaying these symptoms should have their spine and nervous system assessed by a chiropractor.  I have helped countless patients who were diagnosed with or demonstrating symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and are now pain free.  Unfortunately, too many people are quickly told by their medical doctor that they need medication or even surgery and with the many Carpal Tunnel Syndrome cases reportedly being mis-diagnosed, these procedures offer little help in many cases and have the potential to make matters worse.

What does food have to do with it?

What shouldn’t be ignored is that there is a strong possibility that there is a nutritional component to a patients Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. In fact, the symptoms could be due to nutritional deficiencies or heavy metal toxicity.  If you are vitamin B6 deficient, this is something that definitely needs to be addressed as a number of studies have linked this deficiency to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.  Patients normally take 1-3 Vitamin B6 200 mg 1-3 times day for a couple months to reverse the condition.  A zinc deficiency may also need to be addressed as this can prevent the conversion of B6 into its active form.  Check out this link for tips to avoid surgery and medication,

If all of this fails, its time to consider having your levels tested for heavy metal toxins.  This can be resolved with a heavy metal detox program.  A naturopath or certified practitioner of functional medicine will help you with this.

Get to the root of it!

The important thing is that you get to the root cause of the problem so that you don’t have to continue to suffer.  The good news is that if you do, you should be able to get your life back in a matter of weeks and enjoying all that life has to offer.  Whatever you do, DO NOT neglect the problem.  Too often I have seen people wait 4-6 weeks (or more) hoping the symptoms will go away on their own only to let the problem turn into a chronic one.  Take action now!  Click here for information on a natural muscle pain relief product FHA approved!

I hope this is helpful to anyone suffering with symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or anyone that knows someone that if suffering.  This should provide clear action steps in the case that you are experiencing the symptoms of this condition.
