Joan ~ I have been reading your wonderful “Go Dairy Free” book, which I was able to get from our library. I have been dairy free for about 6 years for a rather unusual reason which is never mentioned in the other books I have read….or on any web site.
Back in 2007 when I was desperately looking for help with my Restless Leg Syndrome. I looked on the internet and discovered a site called “End Restless Legs Forever”. I did spend $29 to get the information offered on that website. Can you believe, the man’s claim is that the casein in milk is the culprit. I thought it was worth a try, and I did discover that eliminating all dairy products really keeps the restless legs at bay.
My family hates the inconvenience I endure with the special diet….but it is far better than the awful suffering from restless legs. I thought you might be interested in this, and also wonder if you have ever heard of it.
Yes, Joan. I have yet to find a study on dairy consumption and RLS, but have heard personal stories from two other people that dairy-free helped to resolve their condition. ~ Alisa Fleming
