rlscuredforever web site

Any information on the web ad by Marcus Bloom "RLScuredforever.com"?
He offers a $29.95 ebook claiming to show that all the conventional views on cause of RLS are incorrect.

Basically the book says to cut out dairy, which the author says was the cause of his RLS by triggering an 'alergic like reaction'. I found it made some sense as the writer said his RLS flared up after a bout of drinking creamy coffees, milkshakes & ice cream due to the fact he'd been consuming this stuff when a such a cafe/store opened near him. Putting two & two together he began to reduce then cut out dairy.
My sister has been allergic to milk since birth & she's the only one who doesn't have RLS in my immediete family so these findings made a bit of sense to me so I decided to cut out dairy after reading the book (since the begining of the year) and although I am having a stable period (but not completely free of symptoms) it may also be because I improved my sleep hygiene & made some other changes too. Cutting out dairy may work for some people, I think it's a little more complicated than that for me, but there was some good stuff in the book and I started a sleep/diet diary, which has helped me alot.

My guess is that anyone can have a food intolerance and have it cause bizarre symptoms. But, that doesn't mean we ALL have that.

I've been dairy free for long periods of my life because I have a problem with casein.....I still have RLS whether I'm ingesting dairy or not. I just have additional problems when I'm ingesting dairy!

Agreed. To say one's RLS has been cured doesn't mean it will work for everyone. We're all individual and may have many factors that contribute to our symptoms.

Another one of these books says to cut out sodium. Again, I imagine this might help someone...but most of us? I doubt it. The people I know who tried the sodium thing weren't helped either.

Other people avoid wheat and are better.

Some ice cream (but not other dairy).

Some avoid sugar and are better.

It's worth trying. You never know. And, if none of these work, you can then try other options.

My family has never ate much salt. My mom has congestive heart failure, and since I live with her to care for her due to other medical things, I don't eat hardly any salt. We buy the lowest sodium things we can find. Do not cook with salt, we buy seasoning salt that actually has no salt in it.
I still have RLS. The only thing cutting salt did was lower blood pressure!

if you go to www.rlshelp.org you will find a very long listing of all types of things people have tried to help their rls and for some it helped, but usually for only short periods of time, but it does make for intersting reading

You can generally take it as a hint and a half that a website littered with exclamation marks, boldface, and all-caps words, not to mention testimonials to support the item it's selling, is there to help its owner and not you.

Someone who wanted to help you would just tell you what to do in one or two paragraphs, rather than writing ten pages of vague, unhelpful hype to try to get your 30 bucks. I think, in fact, that you will find many people right here on these forums who will write (and have written) those paragraphs for free, many times. Likewise on many other websites.

As my dad used to say, "Don't eat that, it's horse ****."
