Re: Flaxseed oil

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...

Re: Flaxseed oil

My disagreements with you are based on your extrapolation of ideas, and discussion of that opportunity is long gone. Readers can judge for themselves. 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...

Re: Flaxseed oil

Yeah, I don't usually respond to your posts as all the information I state is always very easily found, I mostly disagree with everything you post and the usual straw man arguments. Omega 6, benefits of omega 3, dangerous? Not raised by me.

So we will leave it at that.

Re: Ferritin increased with oral iron, now what?

I'm not getting into a debate as this is my last post on this, but you state: 'RLS is caused by BID (Brain Iron Deficiency)' It is a blanket statement that is unproven (as a cause), without a mechanism, excludes other factors and totally defies common sense. We are free to express our views as that;...

Re: Flaxseed oil

I tried flaxseed oil but didn't notice a difference with RLS or general health. I stopped using it because it is the worse for omega 3 and can have negative impacts on bleeding, blood pressure and interaction with other medications. Although most normal people will not have any issues. Flaxseed oil ...

Re: Ferritin increased with oral iron, now what?

Very nice to see a holistic view to managing RLS in the original post, well done on your success. I wouldn't get too excited about iron, but worth a try like many things. People with autism have low brain iron (BID), also high oxalates create low brain iron which include those prone to getting kidne...

Re: Nectar bed helps sleep

I heard of a Neurologist here in Oz that recommends a new bed for RLS, type unknown by me. My response to this 3rd hand information was very negative without going into details, as I have slept on numerous beds and haven't noticed a difference. But I stand corrected, even if anecdotally. Mechanism? ...

Re: A complete RLS theory; oxalates and mast cells?

As many signs point towards some issue in the brain, it appears that research in that area is most likely to produce results... Seriously?? Two people have expressed this and no one else has commented or challenged. This is a serious wakeup call to anyone who battles with RLS. As I have said, I hop...

Re: TENS placement for RLS

I covered everything I know in previous threads, and I'm with sleepdancer2 in that I have never tried this configuration, or would. So all you can do is try it and see. My guess is this would target a large range of muscles and nerves, as a blunt instrument. Sometimes works, often does nothing. For ...

Re: A complete RLS theory; oxalates and mast cells?

. Recently there was found to be a link to gingivitis and Parkinson’s, Apologies to all, this was a mistake by me. It is in fact Alzheimer's disease. Very interesting if you have been following the utter frustration of research in this area. There are many parallels to RLS in that there was a focus...

Re: A complete RLS theory; oxalates and mast cells?

I haven’t been able to find anything about ‘maintenance pulses’ through a medium level of searching. It must be a colloquialism used by physios with an actual term that is beyond me. I was going to ask in a forum but couldn’t find one that looked friendly. The timing of RLS symptoms intrigued me whe...

A complete RLS theory; oxalates and mast cells?

Thanks to SnappK for providing the paper on mast cell activation syndrome. This makes it possible to put forward a complete theory on RLS due to oxalates. Using the anecdotal evidence of the low oxalate diet’s success with RLS, as well as numerous miscellaneous papers from other fields, a very good ...
