This post originally appeared on April 10, 2011, with the title "self-empowerment." After you read it, I suggest you keep it on file. Use it if and when you or someone you care about has these symptoms.
This natural carpal tunnel cure worked for me and I attest to the fact that I have not had another attack of CTS (now it's June 26, 2014). I continue to do a select few of the exercises detailed below to help maintain dexterity and prevent a recurrence of a condition that was both painful and debilitating.

In Nov. of 2010, I couldn't use my computer, fold the wash, or prepare a meal. My dominant hand was in so much pain. At first, I tried conventional treatment methods. For several months, I followed Dr's. orders and put my hand in a splint, had an RX, and took an over the counter anti-inflammatory medication, plus rested my hand and wrist. I went to two different acupuncturists, which turned out to be the wrong treatment; it was too harsh for acute symptoms.
After I had Nerve Conduction Studies, the doctor determined I had severe Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. A hand surgeon recommended an operation. However, that did not sit well with me. My body wisdom guided me to explore other options before surgery.
After more research, I finally discovered a treatment that came out of a study from the U of Penn. Results show it's just as effective as surgery to treat symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Both of these methods have proven to lessen Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) in me. In fact, after three months of doing these things, I was totally free of pain and
filled with a sense of satisfaction. I kept the faith and stayed on tract, and found a treatment that worked without having to undergo an operation!
Today's quote is by Lewis Carroll. I selected it, because this cure was a gift to me!
"There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get un-birthday presents ... and only one for birthday presents, you know."
