    Hello lovely , well .. Vitamin B6 (found in meat, fish, nuts, beans, whole grains, avocados and bananas) and omega-3 fatty acids (oily fish, nuts, seeds) may help keep your joints supple. Some naturopathic practitioners recommend cleansing the body of toxins with a detox diet to treat RSI symptoms.

    Comfrey in a cream is good

    And in Homeopathy Ruta is often used for tendon injuries.

    Essential oils for muscle stiffness are helpful , peppermint, lavender, ginger and eucalyptus. Mix with a carrier oil (almond or olive oil, for example) and massage .

    Bless you it's painful . Xx

    Castor oil packs.

    Basically you have wool flannel saturated with the oil, wrapped around the affected area, and heated with a pad or a hot water bottle, leave on 1-2 hours thinking positively or reading something "inspirational", not watching TV. Take 2 tsp of olive oil after doing the pack, which protects the liver from any toxins that might get released from the pack.
    Sometimes God shines his magic light beam from outer space, and it works in mysterious ways.

    Make a massage oil with the following: frankincense and ginger for joints and peppermint and eucalyptus to boost circulation (and thus to promote healing).

    I would highly recommend the book "The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook" by Clair Davies, you can work miracles with it.
