A LOT of people worldwide suffer from Restless leg syndrome and insomnia.
It may sound pretty weird but A LOT of people swear by that if you put a bar of soap under your bed tremendously helps manage both of them. So let’s see if it’s true and who says so!
Restless leg syndrome is a neurological disorder where one feels discommodity in the legs while he is resting. They are also called ”Charley horses”. When you move the cramped leg it generally makes the pain worse. “Leg cramp usually happens due to excessive exercise, dehydration, and mineral and vitamin deficiencies.”
Diabetes, kidney failure, pregnancy, and alcohol consumption are linked to it, even though there is not a known root cause.
42% of those suffering from restless leg syndrome and nightly leg cramps, when interviewed say that they are convinced that putting soap under their sheet helps in treating their pain.
Doctor Oz thinks that is due to the magnesium in the soap which helps decrease leg cramps.
He says it’s the best option for those who suffer from insomnia too because lavender soap helps relax the body drift to sleep.
A post on steady Health says: “I herniated a disc in my lower back in 1997. It was that bad to cause nerve damage. I have suffered terrible pain in my lower back and right leg for 11 years now. They told me to put soap under my sheets to help relieve the pain. I tried that, and it worked. I haven’t been able to sleep in my bed for nearly ten years.
”I’ve been sleeping in a recliner all of that time.”
”On the 3rd day with the bar soap under my sheets, I wake up with No pain at all. I would recommend it. It seems weird, but so far so good. Hope it helps !!!”
Another one said: “When I saw my mother do that, I thought she was fooling herself. Whereas now I have some bars of soap in bed with me every night. It worked for my husband and me. It doesn’t take away the reason for the pain, but it allows me to get to sleep when pain shows up. It is worth trying!”
If you decide to try it, purchase a soap made with pure essential oils, not ‘fragrance’. Fragrance can be harmful to your respiratory system.
Also, beware if you sleep with pets. Some scents are unhealthy to pets, cats in particular.
