I have had Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) on and off for years. In my early twenties a doctor prescribed me a tranquilizer and I was able to sleep through the night. However, as I became aware of holistic living I cut out the drugs and realized I could control RLS with magnesium supplement along with some liquid trace minerals. Apparently my RLS was triggered by a magnesium/trace mineral deficiency. By taking these supplements before bed I returned to long, restful nights of sleep. (Where have those been since I became a mom??? But that’s another can of worms . . .)
Where was I? Oh yes, restful nights of sleep. Until pregnancy, when my restless legs returned. It was an absolutely miserable experience that continued after pregnancy until I found the third magical ingredient that solved the issue for me: iron.
The formula may be different for other RLS sufferers, but I strongly recommend that pregnant women with RLS symptoms give these three supplements a try. The body needs a lot calcium/magnesium, iron and trace minerals to grow a healthy baby and it’s easy to become deficient. B Vitamins are another possibility if you give those a try and still don’t find relief. Hope this helps someone!
