Restless Leg Syndrome, otherwise known as RLS or Willis-Ekbom disease, is an ailment that effects many people who are simply attempting to get a good night’s rest. RLS expresses itself as an irresistible urge to move one’s legs while lying down and is often accompanied by mild aches in the muscles and joints. This syndrome can be caused by low iron or a dopamine deficiency. While it is not a dangerous condition, it causes discomfort and frustration as it can hinder sleep and add to restlessness. Because of its undesirable affects, those with symptoms have desperately sought a solution to the ailment and have come up with a method that, on its surface, might seem a bit crazy. However, many people who struggle with RLS have tested the method out and have spoken to this odd remedy’s effectiveness. The idea is to place a bar of soap under the fitted sheet down by your legs while you sleep, and to thus ease the incessant movement. Can this remedy actually work, and if so, how?

Using a bar of soap to prevent RLS symptoms may be effective because of the magnesium prevalent in many soap bars. Magnesium helps with metabolic function, and many might suffer from a magnesium deficiency unknowingly as magnesium becomes less and less prevalent in our foods. Magnesium is anti-inflammatory and known to help fight anxiety and to promote bone health. As the magnesium in the soap is absorbed into the legs, it may be able to relax the muscles as it is also known to soothe and prevent muscle cramping. If your soap has lavender in it, even better! Those who have used soap containing both magnesium and lavender have attested to further benefits, as studies have shown that lavender can fight against mild insomnia and chronic pain.

Placing a bar of soap under the sheets might seem strange, but it is certainly worth a try. This is an intriguing at home, homeopathic remedy that could make a difference if you, like many others, are struggling with RLS and are searching for a way to ease the aches and discomfort that accompany the syndrome. After attempting this remedy, you may find that you are able to relax and to have more peaceful, effective rest periods.
