Recently, a study was released indicating that people with RLS have a higher incidence of heart attacks. There was a correlation found especially in those who have had the condition for more than three years.
Although the study did not go as far as figuring out the cause of this condition or the relationship to heart problems, it mentioned that there may be increased sympathetic drive since high blood pressure and an elevated pulse rate were associated with it.
So my question is, if they have all these facts, why don’t they come out and simply say, “RLS is caused by an increase in adrenaline”. It never ceases to amaze me that the medical profession completely ignores adrenaline inspite of the fact that it is the underlying cause of some of the most common medical ailments – fibromyalgia, ADHD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, anger, alcoholism, plus many others.
Once they accept that adrenaline is an important factor, then they can try and figure out why some people over-produce this hormone/neuro-transmitter. It should not take them more than 20 years. Of course they could save some time by reading my book, “The Miracle of Bio-identical Hormones”, or my manual for healthcare practitioners, “The Platt Protocol for Hormone Balancing” They are both available on my website: www.plattwellness.com
