It has been known for over 3 decades that many conditions treated by surgery could be greatly improved and in some cases totally cured with pennies worth of nutrients, but there’s no money in pennies of nutrients.
Surgeon Dr. John Ellis wrote extensively about how vitamin B6 cleared the majority of carpal tunnel syndromes, and other clinicians confirmed this.
The normal dose for carpal tunnel syndrome reversal is anywhere from 1-3 Vitamin B6 200 mg 1-3 times day for just a month or two to reverse the condition.
If B6 supplementation fails to work then there are commonly other deficiencies and toxicities contributing to it. Some of the more common reasons for treatment failure would be a zinc deficiency that inhibits conversion of B6 into its active form.
You see, B6 is useless until the zinc deficiency is corrected.
Plasticizers or phthalates (substances added to plastics to increase their flexibility) create hidden zinc deficiencies as do many other things like prescription medicines and surgery, as with knee replacements, stents, diuretics, etc.
An even more common reason for failure of simple and previously effective therapies is the high level of hidden heavy metals that the majority of the population carries. Mercury, arsenic, lead, cadmium, and aluminum are some of the most common heavy metals that are in all of us.
Heavy metals sit right in enzymes, kicking out the minerals that are required for normal function. It’s not until we have stockpiled enough heavy metals that we then get bizarre symptoms in a place that never bothered us before, like a wrist or knee.
For many people, doing a heavy metal detox program has reversed their carpal tunnel and other neuromuscular, tendon, arthritic, and ligament problems by.
It makes a lot of sense to put the body back to the less toxic level of youth. Making a concerted effort to reduce heavy metals is an ongoing process.
CAUTION: Taking high doses of vitamin B6 could lead to toxic effects in your body. The classic sign of this problem is peripheral neuropathy (nerve problems in the hands and feet), which can cause numbness, tingling, pricking, and burning. While the nerve problems due to vitamin B6 toxicity are often reversible once the supplement is stopped, very high doses can cause permanent damage. B6 supplementation should be supervised by a healthcare professional and monitored with lab testing as appropriate.
Vitamin deficiencies and heavy metal toxicity are only a few of the possible reasons why someone may have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). In some people, the small carpals (wrist bones) may be slightly misaligned narrowing the carpal tunnel and “pinching” the median nerve mechanically creating symptoms. There are common lab tests covered by most insurances we can order to check for vitamin deficiencies and heavy metal toxicity. If you have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome then call Dr. Channing Bolick your Maitland Chiropractor today to schedule an evaluation 4074-629-5333. There can be other causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome so getting at the root cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome opens the door for the most effective treatment.
