Modern life with all its conveniences.

We should be experiencing less pain, right? But sadly, these days, we are experiencing more than ever before. Society’s sedentary lifestyle is causing a pandemic of back pain, while the fixation with keyboards is increasing injuries to wrists and hands.

Imagine being unable to hold a phone, grasp a steering wheel or pick up a beverage!

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. That may be the diagnosis. But to the sufferer, it presents as anything from tingling and numbness in the wrist and hand to excruciating pain and weakness.

What causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Pressure on the median nerve that runs through the carpal tunnel space in the wrist.

There are anatomical contributors and health factors that may increase risk. But all too often, repetitive motion can push an individual’s predisposition to this condition over the edge.

And think about it. Who among us doesn’t spend a good amount of time on a keyboard these days?

I wrote once about my experience with painful hands in India at the Prasanta Banerji Homeopathic Research Foundation. In my case, it was simply cramping from writing too much. (I was taking handwritten notes on over 100 cases a day!)

But when faced with a conventional diagnosis of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in my practice, I have often turned to Symphytum officinale 200 mixed with Ruta graveolens 30, twice daily, until very much better, with much success.

Symphytum is specific for bone conditions. As I say in A Materia Medica: Practical Homeopathy® for Busy Families, Ruta is indicated for sprains, bone bruises and any complaint involving cartilage, tendons or bone surfaces. So, Ruta is a natural consideration for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

And, of course, I would add Hypericum perforatum 200, as needed, for acute nerve pain. Hypericum 200 is this week’s must-have homeopathic medicine for a well-stocked homeopathy kit. Consider Hypericum for pain from incisions, lacerations and penetrating wounds — particularly those that involve nerve-rich areas. It also has been reported to be helpful for dental pain.

As usually found in homeopathy, there are other ways to skin a cat. So, I’ll discuss the precise Banerji Protocol™ for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome later this week in my Memo to Mighty Members. I hope you’ll join us!

Granted, it’s desirable to curtail the repetitive motion that causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Stepping away from the keyboard to move about, stretching one’s wrists and even bracing might help. But why turn to dangerous NSAIDs and corticosteroids as conventional medicine would advise?

Instead, homeopathy offers a gentle nudging of the body back to its natural state of health and functionality without manifesting dire consequences in other organs, as drugs of commerce often do.

Pass on the good news of homeopathy!

Joette laughingI am a homeopath with a worldwide practice working with families and individuals via Zoom. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety, and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

Joette is not a physician and the relationship between Joette and her clients is not of prescriber and patient, but as educator and client. It is fully the client's choice whether or not to take advantage of the information Joette presents. Homeopathy doesn't "treat" an illness; it addresses the entire person as a matter of wholeness that is an educational process, not a medical one. Joette believes that the advice and diagnosis of a physician is often in order.

    Thank you for this fascinating info, dear Joette! My husband works standing on concrete has been struggling with heel pain that points to bone bruising. I’m excited to get some Ruta and have him give that a try! One year ago, a good friend led a study group that got me going on practical homeopathy, and this Christmas I was gifted your Materia Medica. I’ve been blessed by using what I’m learning to help my own young family, as well as extended family and friends. I praise God for you and your site!!
