Treatment for Restless Leg Syndrome
If you’ve ever lay in bed and wondered why your legs suddenly felt awkward and also when that uncomfortable feeling in your legs would stop, then you may want to read further. It is the feeling of sudden uncomfortableness or even cramping pain in your legs and lower extremities that you just can’t get rid of, no matter what position you try and get into. It can be painful and even keep you awake at night. Fortunately there is a natural Treatment for Restless Leg Syndrome that can put an end to this very uncomfortable experience.
The strange thing about restless leg syndrome is that is was relatively uncommon before, few people reported such an experience. It is now becoming common, and the link may be our diet and nutrition, and more specifically the lack of vitamins and minerals (particularly absorbable iron) in our soils and in our diets. The medical treatment is usually with supplemental iron and dopamine type medications, similar to those that suffer with Parkinson’s disease. So what exactly is RLS anyway?
What is Restless Leg Syndrome?
What is Restless Leg Syndrome? RLS is the common abbreviation for Restless Leg Syndrome (or Restless Legs Syndrome,) and it is also commonly referred to PLMS (Periodic Leg Muscle Disorder). It is the irresistible and intense, urge to move your leg (or legs.) It is also common to feel other strange sensations in your legs such as crawling, tingling, pulling, creeping, or even cramping pain. RLS sensations are often triggered by simply lying down in bed or by remaining seated for prolonged periods of time, such as while driving your car, seated in an airplane or even while seated for a long movie at the theater.
Restless Leg Syndrome seems to be worsened by being seated in tight or cramped spaces, when you don’t have the room to properly lengthen your legs. It has happened to me in the past, and for me it was unnerving and painful. There are some common symptoms and signs of Restless Leg Syndrome that you should be aware of so you can tell if that is what is causing you those uncomfortable leg issues.
Restless Leg Syndrome Causes
So, what causes RLS? Restless Leg Syndrome Causes are being linked to chronic stress (of course), glutamate consumption (MSG), lack of absorbable minerals your the diet (because of poor soil mineral content) and even heavy metals exposure. The heavy metals can displace more important minerals from being absorbed (like calcium, magnesium, selenium and iron.)
Poor sleep habits can cause your hormones not to naturally balance themselves like they do when you hit the critical deep levels of sleep, particularly dopamine levels. If you are having issues falling or staying asleep then stopping your insomnia is a great start, see Herbs for Sleep. RLS is most common in people with Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s because of the mercury and nervous system toxicity issues. Also Diabetes Mellitus and Arthritis can cause restless leg syndrome to become more likely.
Zeolite can be taken to help detox heavy metals from the body and take away the one of the most probable causes. It can also help relax the muscles as it’s a natural alkaline mineral that is a potent detoxifier. It is best to treat RLS as soon as possible as it’s an underlying condition to many diseases and letting you know that you need to detox the toxins out of your body asap.
Restless Leg Syndrome Symptoms
If you are being affected by RLS you will notice some common signs. You may have RLS if you are experiencing two or more of the following Restless Leg Syndrome Symptoms:

If you are experiencing any of the above RLS Symptoms then you should treat it as soon as you can. It can effect your sleep and lead to poor health and lowered immune function!
Natural Treatment for Restless Leg Syndrome
The best Natural Treatment for Restless Leg Syndrome stops the source of your restless legs, not only the symptoms. Since there are a few causes, you’ll want to choose the one that fits your situation the best first. It is usually due to an imbalance between calcium and magnesium (there is calcium in everything) and very little magnesium in most foods. Calcium makes your muscles contract, magnesium makes your muscles relax.Adding pink Himalayan sea salt to your diet can help. For RLS, I recommend using the Ease Magnesium Spray (pictured above) because you absorb magnesium best through your skin, and it is faster acting, and can help you relax, and even get the best night sleep ever, with no restless legs, either!
Meditation is a natural stress relief technique that you can use whenever you feel your stress level is high or you feel RLS coming on. It is not a cure, but something that you can do that may help while you detox and get rid of the cause of RLS. Massage can help you stimulate the nerves in your legs and break up tension and stored toxins that may have accumulated in your tissues, making you an easier candidate for RLS symptoms.
Drinking a high level quinine tonic water can also be very helpful for RLS. Supplemental Iron is helpful as well, since it’s usually deficient when you have RLS. Organic Hemp CBD Oil or Creams contain Cannabinoids and can help reduce or stop the twitching and provides awesome pain relief (it can heal and prevent cancer and a host of other diseases too!)
Restless Leg Syndrome Remedies
Mother nature gives you the safest and most effective Natural Restless Leg Syndrome Remedies. There are specific minerals and herbs that balance your hormones and dopamine levels safely, and also restore your body (and restless legs) to their normal healthy state. Here are the best natural remedies for Restless Leg Syndrome (in the order of which can usually help the most):
- Iron Fuzion (An Organic Iron That is Fully Absorbable)
- Magnesium Spray (Magnesium naturally calms your nerves and prevents muscle cramping. Epsom salt baths work because magnesium is absorbed much better through your skin than through tablets)
- Homeopathic Remedy for RLS (Homeopathy works on the mental and emotional levels, so if it is due to excess brain activity then this can help.)
- Organic CBD Oil (Organic CBD Oil works wonders to calm your nerves, eases away any pain and totally relaxes you. It also has a powerful healing effect on your whole body and is even cancer preventative. Always choose organic, because the pharmaceutical companies are now making GMO/GE genetically engineered synthetic CBD and hemp seed products which are very harmful to your health and are not as effective!)
Choosing organic iron will make sure it gets absorbed by your body and relieves one of the main causes of restless leg syndrome, mineral deficiency. The homeopathic remedy for RLS gives you symptomatic relief whereas the Quinine helps stop the painful cramps. Rub on Organic CBD cream where you tend to cramp and you can stop it and prevent it from happening again.
