RESTLESS LEGS SUCCESS STORY – Gina Diggle, Melbourne, Australia

ginadGina Diggle is originally from New Zealand and has been living in Melbourne, Australia since 2006. She works in fashion retail. Gina was kind enough to send in the details of how she escaped from her RLS nightmare to now live a symptom free life.

“Restless Legs syndrome was a worsening nightly occurrence for me in throughout my 20’s. I went to the doctor a couple of times and they would normally shrug or attempt to prescribe me with sleeping medication.

I couldn’t really articulate the sensations of what it felt like each night to go to bed. After typing a few key words into Google I found some information. I couldn’t believe this weird thing I was experiencing each night had a name and I wasn’t the only one suffering.  

There seemed to be very little information on the internet at the time so I didn’t gain any confidence in healing myself. I tried a couple of different approaches including iron supplements, magnesium tablets, yoga, massage. Nothing seemed to have an impact.

I felt really helpless; I was suffering from depression, anxiety, exhaustion, nausea and dizziness.

My sister recommended a couple of food documentaries about how food was linked to affecting everything going on inside our bodies.

I was so inspired I decided my diet needed a huge change so slowly started culling out all processed foods, sugar, gluten, caffeine, alcohol, dairy, meat.

I discovered an organic wholefoods store nearby and also loads of amazing food blogs with inspiring recipes. organic-zone

Even though I’ve cut out all of these foods, the world of food has actually opened up for me as I love getting creative in the kitchen nowadays. Raw vegan tarts are my specialty.

I highly recommend an Australian company called Loving Earth. They do amazing organic raw chocolates and superfoods.

A year has gone by with a whole new diet and my restless legs have disappeared along with a few other health problems.

Sometimes I’ve noticed that when I eat out or order takeout food which exact ingredients I don’t know, I have a minor leg jump but that’s very rare these days.  

As we all know sticking to foods in their most pure form from mother earth is best! Nutrient deficiency starves the body of its ability to work optimally.  Knowing what I know now, my cured RLS doesn’t come as a surprise to me as I’ve learnt that diet plays a major role in every disease.

In conclusion you are what you eat/you get out what you put in.”
