Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
John Ellis M.D., an orthopedic surgeon has written extensively about treating carpal tunnel with vitamin B6.
He suggests that 400 to 600 mg of B6 taken 1 to 3 times a day for 1 or 2 months can reverse the condition.
B6 is useless if you are deficient in Zinc.
Zinc deficiencies are created by plasticizers or phthalates as well as many other things like prescription medications, knee replacements, stents, and diuretics.
Another thing to consider if you have carpal tunnel is to evaluate heavy metals.
Heavy metals are very common in almost everyone. Mercury, arsenic, lead, cadmium, and aluminum are some of the most common heavy metals.
These heavy metals block necessary minerals from attaching to enzymes that are required for normal body functions. They can affect your immune system creating chronic inflammation. This inflammation puts pressure on the nerves in your wrist causing or worsening carpal tunnel.
Things to remember about fixing carpal tunnel:
B6 400 to 600 mg 1 to 3 times a day for 2 months.
Check for zinc deficiencies.
Check for heavy metal toxicities.
All of these can be corrected. You need to be tested for zinc and heavy metals, supplement with zinc if necessary and specific detoxification for heavy metals.
It’s worth a try if you considering surgery.
