Home­o­pathic reme­dies to ease rest­less legs syn­drome.

Rest­less legs syn­drome refers to a condition whereby a per­son has an ir­re­sistible de­sire to move the legs to re­lieve dis­com­fort­ing sen­sa­tions. Luck­ily, home­o­pathic treat­ments can of­ten pro­vide re­lief—with­out side ef­fects.

BEST HOME­O­PATHIC REME­DIES

The fol­low­ing home­o­pathic prepa­ra­tions are known to help ease rest­less legs syn­drome. Use the rem­edy or reme­dies (you can com­bine two or more of them) that best match your symp­toms.

ZINCUM METALLICUM AND TARENTULA HISPANICA:

These home­o­pathic reme­dies are best for peo­ple whose symp­toms—in­clud­ing weak­ness, numb­ness, jerk­ing, and/or twitch­ing of legs—are worse at night. They are in­di­cated when marked un­easi­ness in the legs is present, and con­stant mo­tion of legs is needed to find re­lief. If you find it im­pos­si­ble to re­lax and find a com­fort­able po­si­tion for your legs at rest, ei­ther of these reme­dies can help.

MEDORRHINUM: This is the ap­pro­pri­ate rem­edy if your legs ache all night long and you have dif­fi­culty keep­ing them still, even for a mo­ment. Burn­ing in the feet may be an ac­com­pa­ny­ing symp­tom.

RHUS TOXICODENDRON:

This is a great rem­edy for rest­less legs ac­com­pa­nied by ach­ing mus­cles or a crawl­ing, tin­gling sen­sa­tion. It’s also use­ful if you have a hard time keep­ing your legs in a re­laxed po­si­tion at night af­ter a day of heavy ex­er­tion. Typ­i­cally, rest wors­ens symp­toms, and con­stant mo­tion of legs pro­vides re­lief.

These reme­dies of­fer re­lief from a feel­ing of heav­i­ness in the legs and rigid calves. Argentum nitricum, in par­tic­u­lar, pro­vides re­lief when rest­less legs cause rigid calves. Legs may feel heavy, like a log of wood. Causticum is ideal for those who ex­pe­ri­ence a twitch­ing sen­sa­tion in the legs ac­com­pa­nied by a sense of heav­i­ness. There may also be stiff­ness in the calf mus­cles and an elec­tric-shock-like sen­sa­tion in the legs.

FER­RUM METALLICUM, FER­RUM PHOSPHORICUM, AND CHINA:

These reme­dies help to re­lieve symp­toms of rest­less legs syn­drome

re­sult­ing from de­pleted iron re­serves of the body— a com­mon un­der­ly­ing cause of rest­less legs. They can help you re­lax, keep your legs still, and sleep soundly.

KALI PHOSPHORICUM:

This is the per­fect home­o­pathic rem­edy for rest­less legs syn­drome char­ac­ter­ized by prick­ling or numb­ness in feet. It also is one of the best reme­dies for rest­less legs syn­drome re­sult­ing from pe­riph­eral neu­ropa­thy. Ex­haus­tion and fa­tigue are ad­di­tional symp­toms in­di­cat­ing Kali phosphoricum use.
