Regarding the article in your May 1997 issue featuring carpal tunnel and available treatment, I`m convinced that I have stumbled onto another option worth looking into. I`ve been taking a preventive nutritional supplement and theorize that it has caused my symptoms to subside.
The supplement is all natural, no chemicals, and is specially formulated to supply optimal nutrition directly to the cellular level. It optimizes the integrity and function of the blood vessels, aids in the production of collagen and elastin, provides powerful antioxidants ... and much more.
I have been an RDH for twenty-something years and truly enjoy my profession. It is exciting to work again without the tingling and numbness I was experiencing.
Please feel free to call me at (541) 772-8283, as I am eager to share this find with other hygienists who are experiencing carpal tunnel symptoms. Hopefully, it will also improve their condition.
