I don’t know how many of you suffer from leg cramps and I am not talking about Restless Legs here or are they related? If the conditions are not related maybe the results of treatment are? Anyway, what led me to this discovery was the kind of muscle cramps that jerk you awake and shoot you out of bed in the middle of the night kind of leg cramps. I am not sure when mine started butÂ sometimesÂ it feels as if I have always had them. I’ve tried many things over the years to stop them but no one thing seems to give meÂ consistentÂ relief. I have learned a couple of things to avoid; sitting with my legs in one position for a long time and then suddenly moving or letting my feet get really cold. I have also learned a couple of things to do; stretch out before I go to bed and take calcium, magnesium and potassium before I go to bed. These things work most of the time, but lately they seemed to get worse and not to respond to my normal form ofÂ treatment. So IÂ talkedÂ to one of my alternative health care sources and they gave me two things that seem to be making a difference. The first one is taking a spoonful of liquid trace minerals everyday. These are all natural pH-balanced minerals that our bodies need but which we seem to always be a little low in with our western diet. They are magnesium, chloride, sodium, potassium, sulfate,Â lithiumÂ and boron. The company that makes this particular product is “Liquimins” by Trace Minerals Research. The second one is magnesium oil. I just rubÂ it on the areas that usually cramp the most at night. It is amazing the results I have with both of them. Each alone did not work as well as they did together and I also noticed a very exciting side effect.Â It came in a little side bonus from the magnesium oil. I found that it not only helped my leg cramps but my other little aches and pains that I would experience in my hips and back when I would go to bed. When I rubbed the magnesium oil into those areas as well, I found I no longer felt those aches at night and slept much more deeply. Both of the products seem to have made a difference and now I am no longer jolted out of bed at night. So back to my question of leg cramps and not Restless Legs; could these minerals also help with Restless legs? I think it is a good possibility, at least it is worth a try.
I would love to know if anyone else has similar reactions to these minerals and would love to hear about your results.
