3 Comments for the Restless Leg Syndrome Home Remedy


I'm 59+ and have suffered from RLS for most of my life. suffered auto rides with legs acting up, many unpleasant times. I describe RLS as a feeling of legs wanting to stretch, just like many people do when they get up from sleep. Some of the things that I had discovered: triggers: sugars, both white and fruits, being tired (never ending circle as having RLS makes you loose sleep) not eating a balanced diet on a regular basis (eating just one bad meal, doesn't bring it on and eating just one good meal doesn't stop it either)Cures/treatments: regular good balanced meals, in 1995 I was taking a nutritional supplement called reliv, I took it faithfully for about three or four months; I began to have an abundance of energy and noticed that the RLS had stopped and or greatly deminished (sometimes I would feel like it was starting to come on, but if I went to sleep, it never came on full bore) another treatment I have tried that seems to help a little is standing against a wall with my feet away from the wall, then I let the angle and weight slowly stretch the muscles in my legs. (this takes several minutes to do properly) If at home, I also take HOT baths that cause the muscles to relax. I used to do a lot of riding in vans to work jobs and found that if I got into really good conversations with people, the RLS would not kick in. My case is so bad that I feel it sometimes in my arms and hands as well as my legs. Yet I have very little problem going to sleep, although it many times does wake me before I'm ready to quit sleeping. I recently discovered that eating fresh bell peppers seems to lessen/stop symptoms. This works rather quickly, so if it's going to help you, you will most likely see results fast. Final word, if I had the financial resources, I would get the reliv and start taking it on a regular basis.
