Restless leg syndrome is a condition which makes a person suffering have a constant need to move their legs or an irritation in the legs that is only relived by using the legs by walking or getting up. RLS or restless leg syndrome is one of the most conflicted conditions in the US, in that many people have their disbelieving about its legitimacy as an actual disease. I think one of the main reasons that people don’t take it seriously is that it doesn’t seem like a big deal to someone who isn’t experiencing it. further more you cant actually see anything physically wrong with the person. For those reasons i think people tend to downplay the seriousness of the condition, just as they do with many others who symptoms are concealed or hard to point out. Others seem to support the notion that it is very real and should be taken with full seriousness. One of the main arguments people who appose RLS use to support their cases is that. They claim that RLS is not a real condition and that pharmaceutical companies have made it up in order to get people to spend money on their products. Another is that people are claiming to have RLS simply because they are hypochondriacs and just feel better after taking pill. I think that because of the way people seem to shoot down this condition as something that is real. The people that are actually suffering from it have to hang their heads and not seek help for fear of being called a lair for lack of a better word. Also people suffering from it might think that its all in their head and that they can control if they just try hard enough. This however as I have read from several accounts just makes matters worse. So all and all I think that the way we down play this condition as something that isn’t a big deal really does affect the people suffering because they are less likely to seek out help for it and live with a lower quality. Finally I think the connection between healing and believing have a huge connection. For one the phrase “mind over matter” mean just that the mind has to power to do amazing things if you just push it hard enough. I think that there are a lot of western medicines that work very well in that way they treat the illnesses they are designed to treat, but i think that there are way too many pharmaceutical companies that force pills down peoples mouths. I believe the mind has great healing power and that a huge number of pills would be off the market if we only let the body heal in its natural way.
