It Depends: If you are speaking of faith healing in general, as a physician and scientist, i cannot vouch for that as a viable medical intervention. However, since overactive bladder is a condition highly affected by stress and other goings-on in your brain, i would not dispute that stress-reduction by any means or any activities that contribute to positive thinking and overall feeling of well-being can help. ...Read more
No, I am afraid not: While I am quite religious myself, i dont think the power of prayer alone will work or enough to treat any cancer.To treat head and neck cancer - 3 modalities are commonly used - chemo, radiation and surgery-either as a single or combined modality, treatment will depend on the location and the stage of disease.

Probably...: It is very rare for carpal tunnel to be a permanent condition. It can be cured with surgery in properly selected patients.

Sometimes: Carpal tunnel happens in individuals who are predisposed to having excessive pressure on their median nerves at the wrist by virtue of their wrist anatomy i.E smaller or larger carpal tunnel, sensitive nerve. On top of that predisposition, overuse of the wrist and specifically flexing/extension will bring on symptoms. While massage may presumably "loosen" up the tightness, the relief may be short. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have fibromyalgia and sogrens and now bursitis in the hip, tendonitis in the shoulder. Does anyone see a benefit in buying a sleep number bed?
Treat the fibromyalg: I suspect a lot of this is fibromyalgia. It is made worse by poor sleep, poor exercise, and poor control of the stress and psychiatric issues you need to treat all of these issues. The sleep number bed may help the sleep, but it may be a benefit to get a sleep evaluation to see if there is any other process occurring. If there is it may not be necessary to get the sleep number bed. Issues to be certain all of the reasons you have fibromyalgia are being treated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My son has carpal tunnel syndrome any daily exercise for relief and cure? Also will it work if he uses the keyboard a lot and exercise it.
Can you get carpal tunnel syndrome from typing on a touch screen / tablet? Or does touch reduce the chances of getting injured compared to a keyboard?
Depends: Actually, the primary cause for cts would be prolonged wrist flexion, such as sleeping with the hands tucked under the pillow or head when sleeping.
