Amish Remedy for Restless Leg and Foot Cramps
The Name Says it All.
Crazy name, huh, but I guess they want you to know exactly what it is and no fancy title. Right to the point.
I have seen a Rheumatoid Arthritis doctor that I did not continue to see since I didn't have Rheumatoid Arthritis who told me she thought I had Fibromyalgia. So this gives you just an idea of the pain.
I did find using a neck brace with and without weights, do help and brought me out of a really scary situation when I thought I had no choice but surgery. The older you are the more risks there are and you are told to weigh the pros and cons. Having done that I opted for trying the exercises and doing what I could for the pain.
I had shared everything as it was happening with my dear friend Theresa, AKA Faith Reaper, who I am sure you all at HubPages know. I told her of the intense pain I sometimes had regardless of what exercises I did.
As I told my doctors it is sort of like labor pains in my legs and arms. Of course, you men will just have to use your imagination! Bad, I can tell you.

What Are Friends For?
A HubPage friend, Theresa (AKA Faith reaper) mentioned to me that she sometimes took something someone had recommended or bought for her for foot and leg cramps and that it worked like right now!
Well, these weren't really cramps for I have had cramps just a few times in my life as probably everyone has. Cramps are really intense and sharp and something you do need to get over with fast but my pain was more drawn out intense; sort of a pulling, never-ending pain.
I had my doubts but I am really into natural things and have helped myself many times with natural remedies so I thought, why not, natural ingredients and actually I had used each one of the ingredients for separate reasons over the years. I knew they couldn't hurt!
Buying More to Save.
Caleb Treeze Organic Farm produces an old Amish Remedy for leg and foot cramps.
It is called “Stops Leg and Foot Cramps” and is a combination of organic apple cider vinegar, natural ginger, and garlic juice.
They say relief comes in about a minute, with times differing from 30 seconds to two minutes. Theresa says it works for her that quickly; always.
Actually, I have used each of these ingredients separately and had very good results such as using the ginger root in smoothies I found so good for stomach and indigestion.
1. A little ginger root grated in a salad is great also to prevent stomach upsets.
2. I have used vinegar about all my life and know it is great for you.
3. Garlic cloves I have used and of course, you cannot just eat enough raw garlic to do you the good you want so I have taken the garlic oil pills.
I took these for inflammation because I had not been diagnosed yet with anything and was not given any medicine for inflammation and a friend recommended three of the garlic oil a day for two weeks; which are the instructions on the bottle.
I could really tell a difference. I believe garlic is good for inflammation. For me, that is a given.
So, on all the ingredients of this remedy, I had confidence but how could all these three together do all it claimed to do?
Save Bucks - Pay No Postage
When I ordered the first time Theresa had told me it was around $20 a bottle and I was willing to pay that but when I checked it out (which was Amazon where I order most things) I managed to get two bottles for $30 and saved the postage. I thought that was great but when I decided I wanted to get a good supply of this knowing I would probably be taking it many years; I came across an even better deal.
Total Nutrition Inc has the very same bottles and by spending $50 I managed to get the bottles for $9.79 a bottle! That is less than half what these bottles sell for. The five didn't come to the $50 minimum order so I tacked on a bottle of Cod Liver Oil pills I have been wanting to try to replace my fish oil and I found those for 100 @ $3.16! Total cost $52.11. Just Google and find what you want. There are a few choices. Since the writing of this article, I have found the remedy for under $9 a bottle. So very many places sell it you really can check around and find a good deal about anytime.
Most days now I can say life is good. Thanks to this alone. I would never claim this could cure anything but as a safe non-chemical way to help with spasms and pain, I have seen no other like it! You will also notice other little things it clears up too! Such as acid reflux!

Now if I say I got on this right away and just saw miracles happening I would be a liar. I was not that smart to tell you the truth.
When I had really awful nights I would try it if I thought of it and it helped. I could get to sleep and then I would be OK until the next night.
A couple of times when Theresa asked about my pain and I told her she would ask did I try the Amish Remedy. No, I forgot all about that. It was in a cabinet I rarely opened. When I did try it it was not the full dose (which is just a small cap full).
I really did not realize what it could do and what a difference it would make. I think the idea that what I had was not really cramps per se, put me off using it as I should for a few weeks at least. Then the pain and drawing got so bad I got a bottle and left it by my bedside. Then I saw a difference!
Not only a difference but to me; a real miracle. With larger doses I was not only getting over these episodes before they got bad; I started having a lot less of them! Having this in my system seemed to make the difference.
I no longer feel like my legs and arms don't go with this body. I no longer have to prop arms on extra pillows to keep them straight to lessen the pain.
My legs don't have to constantly move with the pain drawing them out and making me feel like screaming! I don't lay any longer feeling like one big bee sting. This stuff works! I never want to be without it. Finding it for under $10 a bottle I now have 10 bottles ahead of the one I am using on and plan to stay there! I have paid $70 for all natural miracle cures and they were nothing compared to this.
+ This will stop hiccups fast. A tablespoonful in a quarter glass of water and your hiccups are gone.
Also helps with nighttime toe and foot twitching. (Restless leg? Yes!) Just rub it on your toes and feet or legs; where needed. Great to have around.
I noticed this remedy helping with indigestion; just wiping it out! Then I find out they have a remedy for acid reflux and it has these same ingredients. Is it the same thing? But you can order the acid reflux from the same company in the same looking bottle with the same ingredients. This works for me though so I will stick with this. Besides; I have a lifetime supply already!
Apple cider vinegar benefits are many including everything from curing hiccups to stopping cold symptoms, (there's your cure if you don't buy this product!) but much bigger is that some people are turning to apple cider vinegar to help fight diabetes, cancer, heart problems, high cholesterol, and help with weight issues. Most germs can't survive in the acidic environment of vinegar. So would that equal an antibiotic? Sounds close; if not. Apple cider vinegar reduces water retention and interferes with the body’s digestion of starch; reducing calories!
Garlic inhibits bacterial growth, so may be used as a natural antibiotic! Here again, we are fighting germs and bad that breaks our body down and causes so many problems. From studies, we find garlic can boost immune functioning by stimulating white blood cells. Garlic increases the antibody functions and as an antioxidant, it is said to minimize free radicals in the blood!
There are many health benefits of ginger root such as curing nausea and helping with digestion. Arthritis is helped by it and circulation; helping a healthy cardiovascular system. So is this how it helps the cramping? It is great for the symptoms of respiratory conditions, colds, and allergies. Claims are it benefits a stronger immune system, causes sharper memory and cognitive functioning, increase energy, improved digestion, weight management, and cause a slowing down of the aging process.
Wow; now if it does half of that, it is worth adding to a diet! There are a few warning though that I felt I should add that you may want to be aware of; especially if you are on a blood thinner or expecting to have surgery!
*Ginger root may amplify stomach acid production so can interfere with the use of antacids. It also may act as a blood thinner to increase the risk of bleeding when taken with blood-thinners such as aspirin, anticoagulants, antiplatelet drugs, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. There are some reports that eating too much ginger root may cause heartburn, diarrhea, and irritation in the mouth. People with gallstones should consult their doctors prior to taking ginger as it is known to increase bile flow.
*Garlic also thins the blood which can be a very good thing but must take caution if on blood thinners.

Old Amish Remedy
Our amazing old Amish remedy will stop leg cramps at night in about 30 seconds. It also works on muscle cramps in your hands and feet.
Works instantly on all manner of cramps including leg, foot and hand cramps. It works equally as well on back cramps, thigh cramps, and arm cramps and at lightning fast speeds. (Generally 30 seconds.)
This effective fast-acting natural muscle remedy, for both preventing leg cramps or stopping them once they start, was discovered by the Amish while they were still in Europe and brought to this country sometime in the 1880s. We find it curious that it has never before been made generally available to leg cramp and charlie horse sufferers until now especially, considering that this Amish remedy is the fastest acting relief for muscle cramps of any natural product anywhere.
A carefully balanced mixture of certified organic unfiltered raw apple cider vinegar, juice from the ginger plant and just the right amount of all natural garlic juice in special combination so as to achieve almost instant relief from leg, foot, and hand cramps. Salt and gluten-free.
One bottle is usually enough for 2 to 3 months for most people.
You can keep it in your nightstand. (You only take it when you need it.) One of the ways they recommend it is in orange juice and orange juice also is good to help cramps so I try to use it for the most part and from my own oranges when I can. The taste is much better.
