Remedy Description


"Ask the Doctor", Dr. Peter Gott, Newspaper Columnist, Nov 5, 2009



DEAR DR. GOTT: Your recent article on hawthorn berries and restless legs syndrome has

changed my life. I use only alternative remedies and vitamin supplements, but I was so

tortured that I was about to give in to a conventional option. The hawthorn berries worked

immediately and have continued to be successful for more than two weeks now.

I have suffered since my 30s and am now in my late 50s. I can sit and read, sit around a

table and converse and sleep soundly. I am ever so grateful for your suggestion.


DEAR READER: As I have indicated in the past, restless legs syndrome is an extremely

agitating, tormenting, sleep-depriving disorder in which a person has an uncontrollable

compulsion to move his or her legs. This commonly occurs when in bed attempting to sleep

and results in night-walking until the wee hours of the morning.

The hawthorn berry is considered to be a tonic for the heart and is known to contain

antioxidant properties. Today, its use has expanded to assist with high blood pressure and

high cholesterol levels.

Some people have written to me indicating this antioxidant has helped them with the muscle

twitches and tremors associated with restless legs syndrome, Parkinsonís and other

disorders. I am pleased you have been able to keep your RLS under control with its use;

however, the bottom line is that anyone considering taking hawthorn berry or any other

supplement should speak with his or her physician first. Be guided by the opinion received
