Re: Location of RLS Symptoms Changing

Moderate volume and consumption of individual foods, combined with intermittent fasting is probably as good as a diet is going to get. The rest is personal preference and how the body reacts. I'm personally for high a fat diet, with certain vegetable oils high in omega 6 avoided, which is contrary t...

Re: Location of RLS Symptoms Changing

Of course, this all hinges on the assumptions that a "paleo" diet is healthy. You may find microbiome changes from high meat consumption worth researching, as well as chances of diabetes type 2; which is still not well understood. Carnitine is a concern, this was just the top of a quick search: "Di...

Re: Treating Central Nervous System Inflammation

I fully agree that we should never look at a symptom in isolation, and assume that a single one thing caused it. I’m conflicted on single causes for RLS, or should I say in pursuing them. On one hand, my experiences show that it is a series of bad luck events that created my RLS and missing just on...

Re: Melatonin (2nd attempt)

In any case, if you simply have "just" RLS, Melatonin is unlikely to work for you and will just trigger RLS symptoms. Endless debates on this in all the RLS forums and the consensus is that it helps some and hinders others. Your summary is wrong. Me and many other people have no problems and get be...

Re: Treating Central Nervous System Inflammation

Well done on your success and I hope it continues. Although I don’t agree with your principles, I would still encourage you to keep trying and especially pursuing any ideas you have. Just because you don’t get a response or even agreement, it doesn’t mean that your ideas aren’t read and considered. ...

Re: Another year of relief (Low-oxalate diet)

There is an interesting overlap with gout, uric acid and oxalates. Anecdotal evidence that low oxates help gout, without a mechanism identified.

Could be similar to RLS, in that you may need a combination of factors for a 'critical mass' for symptoms.

Has anyone of you observed a connection between uric acid and (suspected) oxalate load?
No scientific papers or even speculation anywhere, no practical mechanism to link uric acid and oxalates.

Oxalates are very well studied in the area of kidney stones, and less so in autism.

Re: Another year of relief

I am on a low oxalate diet for 8 days now and I am optimistic that things are going in the right direction. The first 2 days after starting the low oxalate diet i had absolutely no symptoms whatsoever and i was feeling great. Then the "oxalate dumping phase" started and i have minor symptoms at nig...

Re: Location of RLS Symptoms Changing

But I do believe that organic, non-GMO food is more healthy (if it's truly organic) as industrial food is cultivated or even genetically modified to contain more lectins and other antinutrients. They keep insects away, making the crop more stable, but they also harm us if we get too much of them. A...

Re: Bioidentical Progesterone...improved my sleep

This is an interesting area that I have studied extensively for men, but with the same principles for women. This will be another one of my long ramblings, so you may want to stop now if you have better things to do. Aging is noticeably different in humans if you compare them to other animals. If yo...

Re: Citric Acid

From the kidney stone people: "Citric acid is an organic acid and a natural component of many fruits and fruit juices. It is not a vitamin or mineral and is not required in the diet. However, citric acid, not to be confused with ascorbic acid (vitamin C), is beneficial for people with kidney stones."

Re: Citric Acid

A few people get good management of RLS with the low oxalate diet. However there is often a delay with success due to the time it takes for symptoms to resolve. Oxalate crystals in the site of RLS symptoms appear to be caused more by the movement in and out, storage or release, than their presence. ...

Seriously, you must be trolling for attention, and I must be crazy for responding. You object to 'may' which indicates results vary, as well as ignore that the cautions listed will be a benefits if you want them to be. You basically wasted another wall of text agreeing with what you were objecting t...

As for the interested others, who I'm sure have gone on to live successful lives and abandoned all interest in this, as with all supplements do some ...

Better Things To Do

Ok, so I’m going to be rude here, as you have asked me to be. Forums on the internet are mostly “I have a white car they are the best”, with replies of “I have a white car they are the best” or “I have a black car, they are the best and you are an idiot”. Very rarely you get discussions, as mostly t...
