Re: Vicks Vapo-Rub on Soles of Feet

I read that about the man who rubbed the insoles of his wife's feet. I rub mine with generic Vicks, put on socks, then rub theragesic on my calves, being sure to massage the lower legs. I wear leg warmers. that usually stops the RLS so I can go to sleep for 2 or 3 hours.

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

I bought Garcinia Camborgia at walmart and the bottle has more for free. It has calcium in it. I don't think it will work for weight loss.
