Restless leg syndrome and nightly leg cramps can often be treated by putting soap under your sheets!
Restless leg syndrome is a neurological disorder where a person feels discomfort in their legs while resting. They can also be called charley horses. Usually, moving your leg while cramping will make the pain worse. “Leg cramps normally occur because of excessive exercise, mineral and vitamin deficiencies, and dehydration.”
While there is no known root cause, kidney failure, diabetes, pregnancy, and alcohol consumption have all been linked to it.
Forty two percent of people who suffer from restless leg syndrome or nightly leg cramps have found putting soap under their sheet helps treat their pain. Doctors believe this is because of the magnesium in the soap, which can help reduce leg cramps.
Dr. Oz suggests that lavender soap helps relax your body while you’re trying to sleep, so it’s your best option.
While it may sound like a myth, there are people who have tried this method and praise its effectiveness.
