If You’re Still Looking For Relief From Restless Leg Syndrome It Is Worth Trying These Home Remedies
Don’t overlook simple home remedies for Restless Legs Syndrome – as many sufferers have found relief in these simple approaches. Not everything works for everyone though so do keep trying, and don’t give up hope.
No walk in the park!
Restless Leg Syndrome is certainly no walk in the park, although strangely enough, walking, stretching or massaging your legs can certainly help ease your suffering. The problem is that a) you do not really want to be walking in a park in the dead of night, and b) you cannot walk and walk and walk!
The symptoms of RLS are not uniform
This condition affects different people in different ways, and as such it is not like many other medical conditions where the ‘rules’ of that condition, and associated symptoms are generally uniform across sufferers.
RLS remedies which work for some will not be effective for others
It therefore follows that some treatments will be far more effective for some than for others.
Try, Try and TRY AGAIN!
It may be a lot easier to say than do, but please keep looking at alternative and natural solutions to ease your suffering. By doing so there is a very good chance that you will find something or some method that is right for you.
It may well be necessary to take prescription medication, but please bear in mind how addictive these can sometimes become.
Here are 3 often highly effective home remedies for Restless Leg Syndrome that if combined and persevered with could well ease your night-time suffering.
Make your bedroom a sleep sanctuary
This could be more important than you imagine. If you are using your bedroom as just another ‘room’ in the house that you regularly hang out in, use your computer or watch TV – then please move these things out to another area of the house. And that includes your home phone, and especially all cell phones.
Make your bedroom a special place that you look forward to getting into at the end of the day. This should help relax you and make the bedroom ‘exclusive’.
Combine heat and cold treatments
Before heading for your sleep sanctuary, dip your legs into a bath which is filled with comfortably hot water. Do this for around two minutes, then apply a cold pack to your legs for one minute. Repeat this process several times before you climb into bed.
Once in bed – carry out progressive muscle relaxation
Breathe deeply for a few minutes. Tense the muscles in your feet, and hold this tension for a few seconds then try to fully relax. Tense your calf muscles hold and then relax. The same should be done with your thigh muscles.
Continue to repeat this tensing then relaxation pattern, and gradually work your way up your body until you get to your neck and finally face muscles. By the time you have finished these muscle relaxation exercises your whole body should feel relaxed.
Still struggling to relax?
One natural product that many people have found relief with is called Restulex. It doesn’t work for everyone but the reviews speak for themselves for those that have found it proves useful. Some users have even reported relief from the very first night using it, with no further symptoms at all since. If it works even a fraction as well for you too, I’d love to hear about it.

It cannot be stressed how important it is to look at a variety of home remedies for restless leg syndrome until you find the one that works for YOU!
