“Restless Legs Syndrome and Emotions” by Marcelle Pick, OB/GYN NP

pick“Emotional well being is an integral part of a healthy physical body In conditions like Restless Legs Syndrome.

I ask my patients to look beyond the symptoms and consider what may be causing these issues in the context of their emotions. Are their legs trying to tell them something? Where are they experiencing emotional restlessness in their lives? It is important to take a step back and take an honest look at the bigger picture of inner well-being. It’s amazing what we can discover when we think about changes we need to make in our daily lives that may be contributing to physical symptoms from stress, or other emotional variables.

When we work with our body naturally, we can utilize safe and effective techniques such as nutritional supplementation to help correct some of the imbalances. Conditions like restless legs syndrome can significantly interrupt daily life, but we can work to figure out what our body needs, and provide that in a course of treatment. When we use our body’s own wisdom to heal, we can rest more than our legs, we can rest our minds and our spirits. And that is definitely worth the effort.”
