4 Ways To Quickly Stop Leg Cramps Foot Cramps With Natural Remedies
My name is Larry Cook and I would like toshare with you four natural remedies that you can use to stop leg cramps and foot crampsright away. Let me start by saying that for quite a few years, I used to get leg crampsand foot cramps all the time, and I went and saw a naturopathic and I found outfrom this naturopathic . Angela Agrios, here in Los Angeles, that I had somecirculatory problems and it never occurred to me what was causing the leg cramps or whatthe issues might be, but we noted down pretty quickly, she noted down pretty quickly andI got on to a supplement plan and did a lot of other things to help build my circulatorysystem. In so doing, the leg cramps and the
foot cramps diminished. However, with thatsaid, I still get leg cramps and foot cramps every now and then, and what I want to doin this tutorial is share with you a little bit about what happens, why we get leg crampsand foot cramps and what we can do to stop those pretty quickly. First of all, like Imentioned, circulatory issues can be one of the causes, and if you have leg cramps orfoot cramps on a regular basis, I really recommend that you go see a naturopathic , getchecked out and see whether or not that's a contributing reason for your foot crampsor leg cramps. Another reason for getting foot cramps or leg cramps should be an electrolyteimbalance or depletion of electrolytes. Electrolytes
are minerals and the three main ones are calcium,magnesium and potassium. If someone goes to the sauna, sweats a lot or exercises, sweatsa lot, you can easily lose a lot of electrolytes, and that is definitely a contributing causeto foot cramps or leg cramps. Finally, another major reason is when there's cold feet orcold legs. That can contribute to leg cramps or foot cramps. If one of the reasons whywe get leg cramps or foot cramps is a lack of electrolytes or electrolyte depletion,then obviously it makes sense to put electrolytes back into the body and I've been using anelectrolyte replenisher for quite some time now, several years, and it's called Ultima.I highly recommend it. I actually met the
rep from Ultima many, many years ago. Theygave me a great story about what they do, no artificial anything. It's all natural andso I've been using it almost every single day and I don't have any tie to them, butI really do like their product, and so if I get a cramp at night and I know that I'veeither exercised really hard that day or I went to the sauna and sweat it, I'll immediatelytake some Ultima and that will definitely help subdue the leg cramp or foot cramp. Ifyou think that there's an electrolyte imbalance and you take an electrolyte replenisher, thatdefinitely is a good idea. That's the first method, and then number 2 would be take magnesium,because magnesium is also not only an electrolyte,
but it calms the muscles. It calms everythingdown, and speaking of calm, a great magnesium supplement on the market is called Calm. Itactually can help you go to sleep as well, so I highly recommend Calm. It gets into thesystem right away. I've been using it for several years and if you want to go to sleepmore easily and if you want to stop leg cramps and foot cramps, give Calm a try. Now thethird remedy I'm going to share with you is a homeopathic remedy. It's called Cuprum.This is what it looks like, Cuprum. It's a homeopathic copper remedy. Now here's theinteresting thing about Cuprum and homeopathic remedies. Homeopathic remedies work at anenergetic level, and when you work at the
energetic level, sometimes it can work reallysuper fast and if you've ever wondered whether or not homeopathy works, here's an experiment.Get a cramp, get some Cuprum, take the Cuprum, take 2 pellets under your tongue, and in about2 to 3 minutes, your cramp will be gone. Tell me that's not amazing, and I guarantee youthat it works most of the time for most people. It works for me. I keep this in my pocketat all times. I can't recommend it enough. I learned it from Angela Agrios and ifyou want to have an instant cramp relief remedy on you at all times, take Cuprum whereveryou go. Now the fourth remedy is a really interesting remedy because I found it in ahealth foods store. I wasn't even looking
TMJ and Myofascial Pain Syndrome Animation
The temporomandibular joint â€“ the TMJ isthe joint between the lower jawbone the mandible and the temporal bone of the skull.The TMJ is responsible for jaw movement and enables chewing, talking and yawning. Temporomandibulardisorders, or TMD, refer to a group of conditions characterized by pain in the jaw area andlimited movement of the mandible. TMD may be caused by problems in the joint itselfor in the muscles surrounding the joint. Problems in the joint include: arthritis, inflammationand internal derangements. When the problem is in the muscles, the condition is calledmyofascial pain syndrome. Myofascial pain syndrome is very common andcan occur in patients with a normal temporomandibular
joint. The syndrome is characterized by presenceof hyperirritable spots located in skeletal muscles called trigger points. A trigger pointcan be felt as a nodule of muscle with harder than normal consistency. Palpation of triggerpoints may elicit pain in a different location. This is called referred pain.Trigger points are developed as a result of muscle overuse. Commonly, the muscles of chewing,or mastication, are overworked when patients excessively clench or grind their teeth unconsciouslyduring sleep. The medical term for this condition is â€œnocturnal bruxismâ€�. A trigger pointis composed of many contraction knots where individual muscle fibers contract and cannotrelax. The sustained contraction of muscle
sarcomeres compresses local blood supply,resulting in energy shortage of the area. This metabolic crisis activates pain receptors,generating a regional pain pattern that follows a specific nerve passage. The pain patternsare therefore consistent and are well documented for various muscles.Trigger points in the masseter refer pain to the cheeks, lower jaw, upper and lowermolar teeth, eyebrow, inside the ear and around the TMJ area. Trigger points in the temporalisare also associated with headache and toothache from upper teeth. The main culprits of myofascialpain in the TMJ area are the pterygoid muscles. Trigger points in medial pterygoid refer painto the TMJ region in front of the ear, inside
the mouth and upper outside of the neck. Theymay also manifest as sore throat and difficulty swallowing. Pain from lateral pterygoid triggerpoints can be felt in front of the ear and on the upper jaw.Treatments aim to address bruxism, to relieve muscle spasm and release trigger points. Treatmentoptions include: Therapies: stress management, behavior therapy,biofeedback to encourage relaxation. Dental night guards: Splints and mouth guards to protect the teeth from damage. Medication: pain relievers, muscle relaxants,botox injections. Trigger points release techniques such asneedling and â€œspray and stretchâ€�.
