People who found this treatment effective have praised its existence.
In Steady Health, one posted that: "I herniated a disc in my lower back in 1997.” The person added: "It was so bad that it caused nerve damage. I have suffered tremendous pain in my lower back and right leg for 11 years now. I was told to put a bar of soap under my sheets to help alleviate the pain. I tried it, and it actually worked. I have not been able to sleep in my bed for almost 10 years. I've slept in a recliner all of that time. It has been my 3rd day with the bar soap between my sheets and I actually awoke this morning with NO pain whatsoever. I would recommend trying it. I know is sounds cooky, but so far so good. Hope this helps!!!"
Another person has given a statement with regard the matter: "When my mother used soap to relieve pain and also leg cramps, I thought she might be fooling herself." The person added: “Now, I have several bars in bed with me each night, placing them wherever the pain appears from feet to head. It works for me and for my husband, and we also use any type of soap. It does not take away the reason for the pain, but it does allow me to get to sleep when the pain interferes. It is very much worth the try!"
Just be sure the soap you’re using is natural, with an essential-oil-based scent.
