If you have suffered unbearable leg and foot cramps during the night, you will appreciate this very simple, inexpensive solution that has helped many. It is something that we ALL have in our home–A BAR of SOAP!
UPDATE: Have used small soap bars for 4 months and still works. SOAP must be shaved or REPLACED about every 2-3 wks or as soon as it stops working! 10/13
I have had severe leg cramps, starting with RLS (restless leg syndrome)which then develop into in painful cramps in legs and feet for a several years. I have tried the usual remedies like magnesium, magnesium gel, potassium, quinine (tonic) water and several prescription drugs, with no lasting effect on the leg and foot cramps. On a recent trip to Spokane, WA ,a client of my daughter’s Pilates class told me to place a bar of soap–unwrapped–between the mattress pad and the sheet between my knees and feet. I thought it was a bit
odd, but thought “hey it costs nothing and I am not putting medication into my body” and have tried everything else suggested. So I tried it! I have used the method for a month and my cramps have completely subsided. It is really quite unbelievable. I am not one that gets placebo effects on anything, so know it is a WINNER–at least for many! Wish that more people knew about this, it might save many from taking medications that do NOT work.
