For: Leg cramps and Restless Legs syndrome
Unwrap a new regular size bar of soap, any brand, and place it between the two sheets on your side of the bed. The soap should be placed not far from the foot of the bed and on whichever side wanting it from your feet. You will never realize it is in the bed as you are not going to have it this close to your body. When making the bed up, always make sure the soap is on the flat area, on your side and hasn't fell over the end of the mattress where the top sheet is tucked under. Time to remove the old bar and replace with another new bar when having the first sign of any leg/toe cramping. I used to have terrible cramps! I am asked what is in the bar of soap when their leg/toe cramping stops? Sorry, I don't know the answer. Don't do what I did after a long period of time. I was having no more leg cramps to let me know when to switch out the soap. So, I thought the leg cramps had ceased. After a period of time had passed, I was woke up with my whole leg cramping terribly and including toes drawing. I will not quit having my bar of soap in the bed anymore! Another thing, my not knowing if it will work for everyone who suffers from restless legs syndrome, but I put a new bar of soap on my husband's side of the bed as an experiment. I seen he was sleeping well at night with my being a night owl. With never saying anything to me, I finally asked about his restless legs syndrome after about ten days? He told me that he wasn't having it and not knowing why. But, he was hoping to not have it anymore. When telling him I had placed a new bar of soap on his side of the bed she was shocked. He knew it wasn't a mind thing since not knowing it was there. When having the first reoccurring sign, he wanted another new bar of soap. So glad I experimented to see if the soap would help my husband. He has been using the soap for months now. One day recently, it tried to flare up, but we know the soap is working for him! - Kay Berry
