And also remind him is just "practicing" medicine until he gets it right.

For those of you who do the stocking bit, you could shave the soap with your veggie peeler.

Well Aunt Bea I am so happy that you are having good results with this.

I also am still having great results. I mentioned it to my Dr at my last visit and she looked at me as though I was speaking in a foreign language

Then she said "Well if it works, far be it from me to tell you no. It's not dangerous unless you are eating it of course and I don't believe you can get addicted to it, so keep doing it."

Glad to have helped you !!

Oh! DA drinks the pickle juice. But I'll tell her of the Ivory soap. I love Ivory soap. It's all DA and I use so we have plenty of this.

With love,

ALSO, try eating two bananas, one after dinner, one just before bed. Always worked for me.

Wonder what this would do for someone in dialysis ? Where would you put it I've tried pickles and find they are wonderful with my sammie at D but other than that my hands still cramp

Not sure, Ma! But soap is a cheap trick to play with and see if it works. Good Luck, I know those cramps can be bad.

Yes, Potasium and Magnesium will help with muscle cramping but be sure to check with your Dr.

If your hands cramp at night and you want to experiment, get some of those thin white fabirc gloves and put some shavings of the ivory soap in them and wear them to bed. It might help.
