What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
According to the National Institute of health, carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful progressive condition caused by compression of a key nerve in the wrist. It occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. Symptoms usually start gradually, with pain, weakness, or numbness in the hand and wrist, radiating up the arm. As symptoms worsen, people might feel tingling during the day, and decreased grip strength may make it difficult to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other manual tasks.
Your Nervous System
Your nervous system starts in your brain – it’s what is known as the central nervous system or CNS. All your nerves go down your spinal column, which is the bony structure designed to protect them. They then lead off to all your organs, glands and body parts, right down to your little toe.
Messages constantly go to various parts of your body to carry out body functions and keep your body doing what it’s supposed to do and answers come back from those body parts. This is also very important for emergency situations when the body is in danger.
For example, if you touch a hot stove with your hand, a message will go back to your brain so that an instruction is given to your hand to take it off that stove. If your nervous system is in good working condition, your responses are extremely rapid but the weaker your nervous system is the more likely you are to incur worse damage than if your response time was good. You’ve probably noticed some people have great reflexes while others don’t.
Feeding Your Nerves
In order to carry out these functions and keep your body in good working order and safe from danger, your nervous system needs certain nutrients, as does every part of your body and mind. A healthy nervous system needs many nutrients (vitamins, minerals, fats, proteins, water etc). Deficiencies make your nervous system – and, in fact, your whole body – malfunction.
How Do Calcium and Magnesium Help?
The reason the dentist referred to at the beginning of this article wrote this testimonial is that calcium and magnesium are two very important minerals needed by your nervous system to function and they helped her with the pain in her knees and “carpal tunnel” – as well as sleep. It would appear that carpal tunnel could be simply caused by insufficient nutrients, specifically calcium and magnesium.
They create the “electricity” for your nervous system so that messages can be sent rapidly backwards and forwards and so that it can function properly. Deficiencies of calcium and magnesium lead to problems with your nervous system including pain, stress, PMS and menopausal issues, insomnia, restless legs, depression, hyperactivity and many other unpleasant symptoms. An extreme deficiency of either can even lead to death. More about this …
Why Instant CalMag-C?
It’s all in the formula.
In order for calcium and magnesium to be absorbed by the body, they need to be in a 2:1 ratio to each other plus they need some kind of acid like apple cider vinegar or vitamin C to adjust the pH so the body can actually use it. We have elected to use vitamin C in our Instant CalMag-C due to it being more practical and tasty than vinegar.
As a result, we get great results with our Instant CalMag-C and a lot of feedback from our happy customers like the dentist above.
Our Instant CalMag-C is made with two parts 9% calcium gluconate and one part 29% magnesium carbonate along with vitamin C to adjust the pH so your body can absorb and use it.
“I cannot stress enough what your Instant CalMag-C has done for me. As a dentist I have had many a sore wrist (carpal tunnel), hand cramps, stiff neck and knees due to working day in and day out handling dental needs.
