Re: research on use of TENS for PLMs and query

TENs pads can be made sticky again by cleaning with a wet toothbrush and applying ultrasound gel. Always store in a sealed quick seal bag to stop them from drying out. I use sports compression skins on my calf when using TENS to hold the pads in place, which makes things easier. 1 set of pads have b...

Re: Sleep, microbiome, high blood pressure

I certainly feel bad for the rats, but I've never had high blood pressure from sleep deprivation.

I have a home unit and rarely see a doc, but don't most of EDITED OUT MEANING PEOPLE WHO USE MEDICATIONS see doctors regularly?

Is high blood pressure an issue?

Re: I Think I Found A Possible Cause and Definite Treatment for RLS

This is very interesting. Please keep us updated when this works for a week, then a month and if it keeps doing the job. I had a similar effect with potassium as my body loaded. I could take 1 gm and symptoms would stop. But when I normalised levels, this benefit stopped as there was no longer a cha...

Re: If rls is caused by brain iron deficiency why do hot baths help?

There are massive divides amongst the RLS community on what RLS is, with many of those differences based on how much faith you have in researchers and medical professionals. So the question you are asking is one of many that don’t fit with commonly held views by alleged experts. Research on RLS is a...

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

Your situation sounds complicated. Usually a the sign of oxalate dumping is the cloudy urine and you feel like you have been poisoned, which doesn't seem to have happened. Well done with the experimentation and getting some improvement with diet, so that may be your success and not oxalates. Your ex...

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

I use Go Healthy Go Garcinia Slim Gold, 12 g and 600mg HCA. I usually take one capsule and 1gm Calcium Citrate first thing in the morning after an oxalate dump, which is around 2 times per week currently. Prevously during heavy constant dumping I took up to 4 per day with potasium bicarbonate, or I ...

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

At the moment i would say that i have somewhat cloudy urine about two times per week. I'm not taking any Garcinia Cambogia. Whats your experience with this? I definitely do not want to loose any weight (BMI of 20). For me, the most interesting thing about the diet change to low oxalates is my incre...

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

I eliminated high-oxalate foods from my diet a while ago and didn't have any dump effects. But I might check what medium-oxalate foods I can remove too, to go truly low oxalate for a few weeks. There seems to be weak evidence https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/garcinia-cambogia-weight-loss . I co...

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

I wonder if you have recommendations for oxalate content lists. This is a bit of a nightmare. There are lots of different resources, that are of varying ages and different values for oxalates. They contradict because, just to add more confusion, plants have different oxalate levels based on growing...

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

Oxalates bind to magnesium, potassium and iron; which are important for RLS. Low brain iron (BID) has been found in people with autism; who have high body produced oxalates. It looks on paper that a good percentage of people with RLS have oxalates as the cause, but I have no thoughts on why a small ...

Holy Crap! The celery juice has actually been working. Who would have believed it?
Not really a surprise. Magnesium and potassium are well known to help some people. Calcium could also help those with oxalate issues.

Re: Another year of relief

Thanks for the suggestions. For the last weeks i have been taking calcium citrate with every meal (120mg Ca per meal) as well as potassium and Magnesium citrate once per day. So far the symptoms have decreased, only some tingling remains after i eat some food with too much oxalate (atleast that's m...

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...
