READERS’ CORNER:Ganglions

Then there was the reader whose boyfriend has ganglions on his knuckles. How can they be treated, she wonders. The query hit a rich seam of ideas, so it seems ganglions are a common problem. One reader suggests hitting the ganglion with a Bible (might be a case of a Bible-bashing too far), although it always reappears! Another reader developed ganglions after clenching a hammer handle during weeks of laying flooring. He found it went away after a long period of rest. Could this reader’s ganglions be linked to his livelihood, he ponders. A homeopath says there are six possible remedies that could help, although she doesn’t say what they are. Another homeopath is more forthcoming and suggests Ruta 50M. One reader recalls having a ganglion when he was a schoolboy until a Chinese classmate exerted great pressure on it, and it disappeared. Not sure how important it is to find a Chinaman to do this.
