I think I have good news I will share it with you

My wife suffered from RLLS since 1993 .. we did not know what that illness is .. even our doctor could not help .. till one day on 2006 in a TV program a doctor talk about a Symptoms exactly like the same my wife suffering from and he said it is RLLS and we give a medicine called (SIFROL) they are using it for parkinson but it seemed to be useful for RLLS .. She used it .. It works .. but by time its effect faded ..

Till several months ago .. she started drinking a sage herb (Salvia officinalisone) cup a day .. it was a big relieve for her .. Thanks God .. she reduce the dosage of her medicine and now she feel it`s drop down to nearly 35% ..

  • From Jude's Herbal Home Remedy: Good for headaches and sleep disorders. Caution: It can be fatal in excessive amounts. Sage (Salvia officinalis)

  • Sage is generally regarded as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is approved for food use as a spice or seasoning. However, some species of sage contain thujone, which can affect the nervous system. Extended use or taking large amounts of sage leaf or oil may result in restlessness, vomiting, vertigo, rapid heart rate, tremors, seizures, and kidney damage. It also may lead to wheezing. Ingesting 12 drops or more of the essential oil is considered a toxic dose.

  • Good information but, good lord!, we'd better empty out the spice cabinet. Thujone is found in many herbs and spices including coriander, tansy and tarragon. It is also in absinthe and can be found in home made vermouth so maybe we had better check the drinks cabinet too ;)

    Though it can cause a psychotropic response if taken in large quantities, you'd have to eat a lot. There are few essential oils that are safe to eat.

  • Love those spices. Just don't overdo it. My brother heard ginger was good for inflammation so started chopping ginger root into everything he ate. When he started feeling weak a few months later, his doc ran tests and found he was anemic. They traced it to the ginger. After a month off ginger he was back to normal.

  • just shows - everything in moderation :)

    Tell your brother that there is much more than ginger that is good for inflammation. Omega 3 is a good start, particularly as it is an essential fatty acid. Omega 6, on the other hand, causes inflammation. Inflammation is good - vital to the body since it promotes healing - but only in moderation.

  • Good news. I am glad that your wife has found something that works for her, especially after so long in the dark. Congratulations.

    Sage is a wonderful herb for all sorts of problems. Should its efficaciousness ever wear off, the curcumin in turmeric and ginger might work as an alternative.

  • Dr. Greger at nutritionfacts.org recently reported on studies using either curcumin, an extract from turmeric, or whole turmeric. Extracts are assumed to be the active part of a food or spice. But in the studies he reported on, the whole spice was more effective.

  • Turmeric is wonderful. It is an absolute powerhouse of the plant world. The best way to take it is fresh grated root. The reason that curcumin does not work on its own is that the liver does its best to clear it out of the system as soon as it spots it - and the digestion process means it goes to the liver before going anywhere else. To make it more bio-available you have to disguise it. One way of doing this is to add piperine (the active ingredient in black pepper). This fools the liver. Another way is to mix it with fat/oil. Doing this means that it bypasses the liver getting into the bloodstream via the lymphatic system so that it can be transported straight to the cells that need it. The fresh root contains its own oil - the reason fresh is best :)

    There is not one curcumin but many and Big Pharma is trying to extract the individual components. They are finding that, on their own, these are not as effective. It doesn't stop BP trying to up the anti by adding chemicals!

    Ginger, a member of the same family, has many same or similar properties - plus others of its own. If turmeric doesn't work then ginger or its own or combined might.

  • Thanks Linlow, very interesting.

  • I would suggest before anyone just goes ahead to take anything anyone says works for them, you do your homework and research research research. If you are taking any meds for anything not just for RLS, then be extra careful. Some things can interact with meds.

  • You are so right and I do wish that GPs would remember this when they prescribe multiple medications. Single medications may have been trialed for safety but when have combinations ever been tested - except on the unsuspecting patient!!

  • Can you take it in tablet form?

  • No Idea .. But I shared my wife experience .. with a big hope it will help any one suffering from RLLS .. I sow how she was suffering really I pry to god to give a relieve to avery one in this world who suffered like that

  • Just order some from the woodland herbs I hope this helps me fingers crossed.
