Restlessness could be caused by a deficiency
Restlessness could be caused by a deficiency in the minerals critical for nervous system function. Iron sulfate has been associated with restless leg syndrome, a type of sleep disorder. “The U.S. Institute of Health estimates as many as 70 million people in the United States suffer from chronic, treatable sleep disorders. This is approximately 25% of the population and includes children as well as adults. Sleep disorders include: sleep apnea, Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (PLMD), Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS), and Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome also referred to as insomnia.” (10 Ways to Balance Your Brain Chemistry, pg. 57)
The minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium are also critical for neurochemical functions. Calcium and magnesium supplements (CALM and Cal-Mag Fizz), are helpful in the evening to stimulate serotonin and alpha wave states.
The combination of calcium, magnesium and potassium is present in a Standard Process formula called Min-Tran™. The Min stands for minerals and the Tran is an abbreviation for transmitters or for tranquil. The main purpose of the formula is to support the mineral levels of the transmitters, but it also tends to provide a tranquil state. Supplementing with minerals could even resolve symptoms that look like ADHD in those who actually have Restless Leg Syndrome or Pervasive Limb Movement Disorder.
Here is an example:
“As we drove for many hours during our honeymoon I became antsy and my legs were restless. My new wife had noticed the night before that I had a restless leg condition. She commented that my legs twitched intermittently throughout my sleep. She offered me a couple of Min-Tran™ as we drove. About thirty minutes after taking the Min-Tran™, I became calm and my legs were still.” Ryan P., Willard, Utah.
I am offering a free group coaching session for those interested in learning more about using supplements to balance brain chemistry, calm the nervous system and improve well-being naturally. This is a world I have been studying for over 2 decades. The coaching call is Monday, March 21 at Noon Register Here
