Restless Leg Syndrome and CBD

Published on 11/24/2018

The dramatic results of a study performed at the Harvard School of Public Health were released in June of 2013. The study revealed that out of a large subject group (one they had been monitoring for several years) of all the fatalities during that period, restless legs sufferers within the study group had a 40% higher mortality rate than the rest of the test subjects.

If you haven't read it, the results are alarming, and quite sobering.

From USA Today
"Restless Leg Syndrome Linked to Risk of Earlier Death"

"New research in the journal Neurology by Xiang Gao, a research scientist at the Harvard School of Public Health, shows that men with Restless Legs Syndrome faced a 40% higher risk of dying earlier than other men in the study. 

In their study, Gao and colleagues tracked more than 18,000 men in their late 60s or older for eight years and found that among 690 with restless leg syndrome, 171, or 25% of the men with the disorder, died in that period. Fifteen percent without RLS died. 

The exact cause for the disorder or why it would raise a person's risk of dying earlier than normal has yet to be determined. That, Gao says, "is the next question to answer." 

Consequently, uncovering the explanation for RLS and its effects has proved tricky, especially when considering patients with multiple conditions. The answer will reveal itself only with more research and time, says William Ondo, professor of neurology at the University of Texas' Health Science Center. 

"The issue with these studies is when you look for other confounding illnesses it's always problematic," he says. "It's always going to be debatable."

The first thing I need to make ABUNDANTLY clear to you is that your twitching legs (or other body part), whether you want to call it Willis-Ekbom Disease or Restless Legs Syndrome - is NOT a disease. 

Your twitching and rustling is a SYMPTOM of something more dangerous that's going on inside your body, unknown to you...

CHRONIC INFLAMMATION that is constantly growing within.
RLS is a biomarker ... an indicator of a greater underlying issue.
A recent study by neurologist Sanford H. Auerbach, MD. of the Boston Medical Center strongly supports this belief. 

Restless Legs Syndrome May Signify Bigger Health Problems 
from Medical Xpress / Neurology, March 5, 2014 

A nationally-recognized sleep expert has published an editorial describing Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) as a possible biomarker for underlying disease. The editorial appears in the March 5, 2017 issue of Neurology the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology and was authored by Boston Medical Center neurologist Sanford H. Auerbach, MD. 

RLS is a disorder of the nervous system. Patients with RLS have uncomfortable sensations in their legs which lead to an overwhelming urge to move them – most often at night or whenever the patient is resting. 

The editorial was in response to an analysis of 12,556 men who were followed over time by the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study, published in the same issue of Neurology, which showed multiple disease associations with RLS. 

“Patients with RLS had a higher mortality rate than similar men, and showed an especially strong tendency toward cardiovascular disease and hypertension,” said Auerbach, associate professor of neurology and psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine. In earlier analyses of the same data, men with RLS were more likely to be diagnosed with lung disease, endocrine disease, diseases of nutrition and metabolism and immune system problems. 

Auerbach suggests that restless leg syndrome is a meaningful biomarker for serious disease, and that RLS screening may become more common as a tool for primary care providers to identify patients at risk.

RLS a Blessing in Disguise?

Your twitching legs, arms, neck ... whatever it happens to be, is actually telling you something. It's nature at work. It's part of a complex survival system. And it is trying to save your life.

The Epidemic of Chronic (Silent) Inflammation

Do you really believe in your heart of hearts that the 40% higher than normal mortality rate of the RLS subjects in the Harvard School of Public Health study was due to a low iron count? Or because they had inconsistent dopamine levels? 

No, obviously not. The deaths have NOTHING to do with twitchy legs. The deaths have EVERYTHING to do with the CHRONIC Inflammation that resided within these people. 

CBD modulates the transcription of over 1100 Genes that make the signaling molecules that naturally reduce inflammation in our central nervous system, and throughout our immune system...Restoring Homeostasis to both our immune and central nervous systems.


Amongst the line-up of "medical epidemics" across America, inflammatory diseases are up there as the current crisis. Now looked upon as being one of the most dangerous conditions due to the high likelihood of more serious conditions developing from it, CBD is becoming a more efficient treatment!

CBD or cannabidol, is an up and coming natural oil that is proving to be of huge help for many people for multiple health issues. Restless Leg Syndrome is just one of those, and if you are someone who deals with RLS on a regular basis, but are having trouble getting relief, you may find that this is just the ticket you need.

Chronic inflammation has reached EPIDEMIC proportions!

"We often make medicine more complex than it really is. That's because the underlying cause of chronic disease is increased inflammation. What we see as heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer's are not different diseases, but simply different manifestations of long-term damage caused by a continued inflammatory attack on your organs." -"Silent Inflammation" by Dr. Barry Sears 

Just to drive the point home, below you'll find a list of diseases and conditions that prolonged or "chronic" inflammation can eventually manifest as.

Parkinson's, Acne, Acromegaly, Aging, Alzheimer's, Amyloidosis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Anemia, Aortic Valve Stenosis, Arthritis, Asthma, Ataxia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Cancer, Celiac Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Chronic Sarcoidosis, Chronic Venous Disorder, Colitis, Crohn's Disease, Cryoglobulinemia, Cystic Fibrosis, Depression, Diabetes, Erectile Dysfunction (ED), Fibromyalgia, Heart Disease, Hodgkin Disease, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Huntington's Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Kidney Disease / Renal Failure, Liver Disease, Lupus, Lyme Disease, Migraines, Multiple Sclerosis, Myelitis, Narcolepsy, Neuropathy, Obesity, Pancreatitis, Parkinson's, Poliomyelitis (Polio), Pregnancy Psoriasis, Pulmonary Hypertension, Scleroderma, Sjogren's Syndrome, Sleep Apnea, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Spinal Cord Conditions, Stroke, Tourette's Syndrome and Tuberculosis.

Having read the about the EPIDEMIC of chronic inflammation, and having looked over the diseases and conditions listed above, you really have to ask yourself, "Should Restless Legs Syndrome be on that list?" What are the odds it shouldn't?  

As with any medical condition, discuss a change in treatment with your healthcare professional. This is especially true if it is to be used in conjunction with other medications.

The potential for the relief of agonizing symptoms of RLS with CBD oil is clear to see. And with further studies being conducted, it is hoped that CBD oil will take its rightful place as the most effective treatment available.

Living with restless leg syndrome means never knowing if and when you may get a full night’s sleep. In the United States, this chronic disorder affects nearly 10% of the population. That translates to more than 30 million people struggling to lead a normal life because of this disease.

The exact cause of restless leg syndrome has not been discovered yet which makes it difficult to treat. Doctors try a variety of RLS treatments until they discover what works best for each patient, but many come with nasty side effects.

CBD oil, reportedly seems to work well in treating RLS for all kinds of patients.

Studies show that CBD oil acts as a powerful sleep inducer that allows chronic pain sufferers to get a full night’s sleep. Patients with severely disrupted glutamate levels often complain the most about lack of sleep. CBD oil may actually help to enhance glutamate signaling to lessen symptoms of RLS.

CBD oil also impacts dopamine, increasing the amount of the neurotransmitter in patients’ brains. Stabilizing dopamine levels appears to minimize the involuntary movements in people with other movement disorders too.

Since CBD oil can directly affect the body’s nervous system, it has the potential to relieve the symptoms of many different neurological disorders like RLS and Parkinson’s disease.


Try CBD for Restless Leg Syndrome Relief

Managing restless leg syndrome poses a challenge when doctors know so little about its causes. The continual lack of sleep and negative effects associated with it can make finding any relief seem impossible. Especially when so much of your treatment plan gets left up to chance.

CBD oil may offer RLS sufferers one of the best ways to effectively manage their symptoms without negative side effects.
