Good advice! I haven't heard , I KNOW that BB works! I've taken it for several years. I can certainly tell if I've forgotten.

It's cost effective, and it actually WORKS! Give it a try!

Question Re: Herbs for restless leg syndrome...

I was just wondering do you take it in a pill form? If so how many MG do you take it also comes in cream and tea.

Re: Herbs for restless leg syndrome...

This is my first posting on this board, and I will be happy if I can help just one person with Restless Leg Syndrome.
I have had this problem for about 30 yrs or more. No doctor knew what was causing it. Then I became my own doctor. I could go a month no restless leg, then all of a sudden it would kick in big time. I was always exhausted because of lack of sleep.
Then out of the blue I started to notice that whenever I ate something such as grapenuts, bran, wheat,anything high in iron, including pills.
I also have problems with certain medications, such as attenolol,accupril diazide feldene, cozaar, indocin, B vitamins, vasotec, this is only a few.
I can honestly tell you that since discovering this about 2 years ago, I may have had restless leg 4 times!! I still mess up once in awhile with food or pills, but my legs sure know.
Hope this helps someone.

I have never heard of Butchers Broom. I will certainly try to find it, I presume at a health food store. How much do you take.
I also notice a link with my diet. I notice that my legs are worse when I eat sweets late at night.

Butcher's Broom is good for resless legs, although not so good if you also have high blood pressure.

Butchers Broom is normally used for circulation problems. That is why it may be helping. Other things that may help (depending on the source of the problem) is juicing carrot, celery and beet juice. Even if this doesn't help, it is so great for the body. Alpha Lipoic Acid which helps the liver, and Fish oil.
