    I used to have leg pain, more of an ache, or the feeling of inflammation. I fixed it by getting my blood glucose levels down, and I started the 100 squats a day challenge. Tough at first, I could only do 20 at a time, but after a few months, I could feel I had much better circulation and no more pain. I’m still doing squats today

    I had all sorts of weird sensations in the early days of low carb but cramps and things can be a sign of low minerals, especially magnesium and salt

    Magnesium is great, so are taurine supplements. There’s an essential oil type mix, (- I’ll find a photo) which is really good when nothing else works. You massage a few drops in ....
