I've been suffering from tingling, numbness and pain that comes and goes in my right hand. My doctor told me it's carpal tunnel syndrome, probably caused by years of using my computer mouse at work and long hours spent scrolling on my smartphone. I've already taken steps to improve my posture at work, including changing my mouse, and cut down on the amount of time I'm on my phone, but can you suggest anything else that can help? I don't want to go down the drug route.

I’ve heard that certain supplements can help protect against sunburn. Can you let me know which ones are effective? I have sensitive skin and always seem to get burned in the sun despite using sunscreen. I run and walk a lot outdoors, so staying in the shade and covering up is not always convenient.

I've been diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease and have been prescribed omeprazole, a proton pump inhibitor. I've read lots about all the side-effects of these drugs, so I'd like to find a natural solution instead. Can you suggest any remedies that work?
