I was diagnosed with RLS about sixteen years ago. My symptoms were primarily showing themselves in the evening, making it difficult to sit and watch TV, go to a concert, etc, let alone go to bed and sleep.

I started on Requip, which really gave me a lot of symptom relief. Problem was, I was almost unable to stay awake during the evening, long before wanting to go to bed for the night. I was switched to Mirapex. Things were somewhat better for awhile, until augmentation began.

One day my daughter sent me a website www.rlcure.com that talked about natural remedies for RLS. 

As a very experienced RN, and a natural skeptic besides, my first thought was "Oh, RiGHT!", and after reading a little on the site, I thought, "How can I do all that?" Yet, as a nurse, it did make some sense to me.

MYTH #1: RLS is Genetic FACT: The “tendencies” that cause RLS are passed down from parent to child. These tendencies are VERY changeable. They are not hard-coded. MYTH #2: There are “Two” Types of RLS – Primary and Secondary FACT: There is only ONE type of RLS. RLS is ALWAYS caused by inflammation, not by another condition. MYTH #3: Iron Deficiency is a Primary Cause of RLS FACT: The inflammation causing the RLS also affects iron levels. MYTH #4: RLS IS Caused by an Imbalance in Dopamine Levels FACT: The dopamine imbalance and the Restless Legs are BOTH caused by MYTH #5: Restless Legs Syndrome is a Disease FACT: RLS is a BIOMARKER indicating that your body is dangerously INFLAMED and that ACTIONS must be taken to prevent further damage.

During the last several decades a new science called EPIGENETICS has exploded and changed the human genome as we know it.

This new discovery of how genes function releases everyone from the belief that they're "stuck" with the genes that they inherited, and that whatever condition they have, will never go away.

Epigenetics teaches us that we can modify the way our genes express.

The science is still in its infancy, but recent studies have shown that diet can alter how your genes function.

This is especially important for people suffering from Restless Legs Syndrome that believe or were told that their condition was genetic, and therefore permanent.

Thanks to the many studies that have already taken place, we do know of some foods, vitamins and supplements that will help to modify our Folate Deficiency, Dna Methylation, Human Genome, Vitamins And Supplements, Gene Expression, In Vivo

THE CAUSE OF RESTLESS LEGS IN PREGNANT WOMEN IS THE INCREASED LEVEL OF INFLAMMATION
Many women experience Restless Legs, often for the first time, during their pregnancy. This condition occurs most often in the 3rd Trimester. Contrary to popular belief, the Restless Legs are not caused by the pregnancy. The Restless Legs are caused by the HIGHER presence of INFLAMMATION in pregnant women. There are many studies that demonstrate inflammation levels tend to increase in pregnant women. This inflammation will often be enough to set off the legs. "VAGINAL CYTOKINES IN NORMAL PREGNANCY." G.

"David, originally you promised it would take two weeks to see a marked improvement, or in my case, (worse scenario) three weeks. I must tell you the difference is truly amazing! Starting this coming Monday will be my fifth week and I have to report that last Thursday was in my opinion the beginning of the end of RLS for me - the end of over 30 years of suffering! After weeks of torment and little or no sleep, I slept like a log for nine hours and this past Wednesday, Thursday night, and last night I slept equally for 7 and 8 hours respectively. Boy, oh boy oh boy, so a huge thank you David for that! For three days now I have been free of all pain and the joy of climbing into bed, knowing that moments later I would be asleep is not describable to those outside our suffering.

In a recent study, scientists in Singapore used a new inflammation biomarker called the "neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio" to investigate the relationship between systemic inflammation and RLS. The study is called "ASSOCIATION BETWEEN THE NEUTROPHIL-TO-LYMPHOCYTE RATIO, A NEW MARKER OF SYSTEMIC INFLAMMATION, AND RESTLESS LEGS SYNDROME." The study was headed by Doctor Ceyhun Varım. This study confirms the intimate connection between systemic inflammation and Restless Legs Syndrome. "The NLR was found to be higher in patients with RLS, supporting the idea that systemic inflammation plays a role in RLS aetiology or that RLS is related to systemic inflammatory diseases. To the best of our knowledge, our study is the first to show the relationship between NLR and RLS." Scientists, Natural Remedies, Inflammatory Diseases, Systemic Inflammation, I Tried

In a study titled "(NEURO)INFLAMMATORY COMPONENT MAY BE A COMMON FACTOR IN CHRONIC WIDESPREAD PAIN AND RESTLESS LEGS SYNDROME" Researchers made the following observations: 1. Proinflammatory/neuroinflammatory processes may be an underlying, common factor in both Chronic Widespread Pain and Restless Legs Syndrome. 2. RLS prevalence increases with an increased number of pain areas and the higher the inflammatory load by spreading, the higher the occurrence of RLS. 3. The etiology of RLS remains uncertain, but there is increasing evidence for proinflammatory and neuroimmunoendocrine mechanisms. https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s40675-020-00180-0 Restless Leg Remedies, Common Factors

There have been several scientific studies over the past decade that "suggested" that inflammation and RLS were strongly linked, but it was always concluded that more testing was needed to be done. No scientist was willing to give the RLS-INFLAMMATION link a full throated endorsement. That is until now. In a 2022 study lead by Dr. Joseph Dowsett, his team identified a definite link between RLS and inflammation. The study was called "CHRONIC INFLAMMATION MARKERS AND CYTOKINE-SPECIFIC AUTOANTIBODIES IN DANISH BLOOD DONORS WITH RESTLESS LEGS SYNDROME" From that study: "Our results support the existence of links between systemic inflammation and RLS." After being called a kook for the last 12 years, I feel like I've finally been vindicated. This is a good day for me.

There is only ONE kind of RLS, the kind that is caused by chronic inflammation. There is no 'other' type of RLS. In some cases inflammation may manifest as cancer, in others as ALS, and in many it manifests several ways. Depression, IBS, Crohn's disease ... the combinations are endless. Almost any ailment you can think of has the same issue at its core ... inflammation. The reason that RLS has a higher prevalence in relationship to so many medical conditions is because the RLS and the medical condition result from the same core issue - chronic inflammation. They're like different fingers on the same hand. I urge you to do your own research in this area.

There was a study published in 2008 that demonstrated a powerful link between Stroke and Restless Legs Syndrome. "A new US study has found that people with restless legs syndrome (RLS) have double the risk of stroke and heart disease compared to people without RLS.

Researchers have conducted over a thousand peer-reviewed trials and studies on various kinds of light therapy (also referred to as photobiomodulation or low-level laser therapy). The research has shown an overwhelming amount of positive results. Here is a scientific study that resulted in VERY positive news for RLS sufferers. "RESTLESS LEGS SYNDROME AND NEAR-INFRARED LIGHT: AN ALTERNATIVE TREATMENT OPTION" Over a 4-week period subjects underwent twelve 30-min treatments to their lower legs with near-infrared light. The researchers discovered that "After 4 weeks of treatment the treatment group had a SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER improvement in RLS symptoms than the control group."
