Symptoms:

Restless Leg Syndrome sufferers have a strong urge for leg movement due to uncomfortable and unpleasant sensations in their legs (Restless Legs) and is sometimes accompanied by Periodic Limb Movements (PLM) a common movement disorder that causes involuntary, periodic, jerking leg movements during sleep.

Also described as discomfort in the legs and feet, tingling, prickly, wormy, boring, crawling, pulling, creeping and sometimes pain.

The symptoms intensifies when in a relaxing or inactive state (sitting or lying down).

In most cases, the symptoms of Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) causes sleep deprivation (insomnia) leading to fatigue.

It is estimated that RLS affects between 10% to 25% of the population.

What causes RLS?

To date no definite genetic cause has been confirmed, however evidence suggests that the most probable cause is a brain chemical disorder (neurotransmitter) called Dopamine (a medication form of a substance that occurs naturally in the body. It works by improving the pumping strength of the heart and improves blood flow to the kidneys).

Aggravating factors could include:

  • Neurological nerve damage (within your nervous system motor pathways)
  • Continues high intake of coffee, tea, cola beverages, chocolate, alcohol and cigarette smoking
  • A deficiency in Iron or magnesium (anemia)
  • Impaired glucose metabolism
  • Slow blood circulation
  • Stress
  • Pregnancy (in particular the last trimester)
  • It is suspected that RLS can be inherited
  • Diabetes
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Kidney failure
  • Varicose veins or peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage in the hands and feet).
  • In some cases, avoiding treatment with side effect medications can dramatically decrease Restless Legs Syndrome symptoms
  • In some cases IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) might aggravate RLS symptoms
  • Genetic predisposition (unconfirmed findings)

What can I do to relieve Restless Leg Syndrome symptoms?

Reduce intake of coffee, tea, cola beverages, chocolate, cigarette smoking.

Due to the wide variety of factors that could cause RLS and the severity of your syndrome, we suggest a three step process of elimination:

Step 1:

Substitute the insufficient blood flow caused by the irregular neurotransmitter (brain chemical) of dopamine:

  • Take 1 x Ceraflow tablet 2 to 3 hours before bed time or when symptoms intensifies during the day. Ceraflow is a side effect free, natural herbal blood flow stimulant.
  • For immediate, short term relieve perform voluntary leg movement, such as walking, stretching, deep knee bends and a leg massage or a warm bath sometimes helps.

Step 2:

In some severe cases, due to the irregularity of the syndrome, sufferers might be required to make use of an additional relaxant to assist with sleeping patterns.

  • Stress Ease is a non-addictive, natural herbal supplement that will help you relax and relieve stress and anxiety to ensure restful sleep.
  • Stress Ease contains: Passiflora Coerulea, (also known as Passion flower). Passion flower has been used to treat sleep disorders and historically in homeopathic medicine to treat pain, insomnia related to neurasthenia or hysteria, and nervous exhaustion.
  • Stress Ease and Ceraflow should be taken simultaneously to obtain the best results for Restless Legs Syndrome.

RLS Medications has taken the liberty to compile a Package deal against RLS (Restless Legs syndrome).

Step 3:

Intervene Herbal is another product that might assist against RLS (Restless Legs syndrome). Although we do not promote Intervene as a RLS treatment, there has been numerous case where clients has reported their Restless Leg symptoms disappeared and I think it’s definitely worth a try.
