Natural Remedies For Leg Cramps

• A glass of lukewarm milk before going to bed is a simple, yet effective way to treat the leg cramps.


• Prepare chamomile tea and have it at least 5 times a day, for about 2 weeks. For every cup of water, take two or three teaspoons of chamomile flower. Bring the water to a boil and let the flower steep in it for a few minutes. Strain, add sugar or honey, and drink warm.


• A hot shower before going to bed is effective in curing leg cramps. Pour some hot water on the painful area as well.


• While you are on bed, stretch the legs as far as you can and keep it in the same position for half an hour. While standing, push your heel onto the floor and bend your toes upwards. This is a good way to treat leg cramps.


• For people who often face the problem of leg cramps, press your toes against the wall and stretch the calf muscles. Repeat this 15-20 times.


• A cup of red raspberry leaf tea, consumed in the morning and evening, is good for relieving a person suffering from leg cramps. Bring a cup of water to a boil and add a tsp red raspberry tea to it. Let it steep for a few minutes, strain and drink when still warm.


• Mix one tbsp of calcium lactate, one tsp of apple cider vinegar and one tsp of honey in half a glass of lukewarm water. Have this once a day. It will be helpful in treating leg cramps.


• Using hot water bottle on the affected area is also beneficial in treating and curing cramps.


• Consume 2-3 bananas per day, as it increases the potassium intake in the body, thereby relieving a person from cramps.


• Having 2 tsp of honey per day is helpful in preventing leg cramps.


• Increase the intake of foods rich in calcium, potassium and magnesium daily.

Very useful tips Nisha......When I get leg cramps in my calf muscle, I used to take, B - complex capsule, and I used to get immediate relief.

Still I don't know the reason behind this type of cure.
