2 weeks ago started with fingers locking up

Posted By Janie (Monmouth, Oregon) on 11/02/2011

Mine just started about 2 weeks ago with first the middle finger lock up and now the thumb. I am 71 year old female. I have always been into healthful living exercise, meditation, etc. I take vit. B, magnesium, do not fry food. Eat plain and simple foods. I can't imagine a more heathy diet and reasonable supplementation. I rotate foods and supplementation. I have no pain with this. I have for many years off and on again finger numbeness and blockages, due to having done massage for over 30 years, but quit massage work 15 years ago. I don't think I have missed anything you have mentioned. I am also a hypnotist, so I think I will use my self hypnosis and "talking" to my Inner Physician, and not put too much attention to it since there is no pain involved.

Mix 1 cap full of the following: 1/3 DMSO, 1/3 Castor Oil, and 1/3 Aloe Vera - as per Ted's directions and apply it with a Qtip. Leave it on for about 30mins (it will totally absorb into the skin). Do this about three times a day for a couple of days. This has worked wonders for my Mother-in-Law (80 years old). You should find good progress after the first application.

You said you take magnesium, but tablet form is not easily taken up by the body so you may still be lacking.

You could try some magnesium oil sprayed on your hand each day or buy some magnesium chloride and mix 50/50 with hot water until dissolved and you have your own magnesium chloride.
