2011 Roundup of Non-drug treatments

Postby Hopeful » Thu Feb 06, 2014 7:23 pm

Hi all,
I found this 2011 study that is a nice roundup of non-drug treatments. It explains each one briefly with a quick theory of why they may work. I learned a lot. The nice thing is that each of the treatment options studied has multiple links if you want to explore it further. Some are not real recent, but that doesn't bother me because I realize that the non-drug treatments are not always well-funded. I hope it is useful to you.

In case the link doesn't work, the title of the article is: "Nondrug-related aspect of treating Ekbom disease, formerly known as restless legs syndrome"

Best to all of you-
