Edema is swelling that is caused by fluid trapped in your body’s tissues. Edema happens most often in the feet, ankles, and legs.
Common Causes of Edema are:
Low potassium levels
Congestive Heart Failure
Lung, kidney, and thyroid diseases
Edema can occur as a result of gravity, especially from sitting or standing in one place for too long. A way to test for edema, even if there is no swelling is to press the suspected area. Ankles are usually the first area affected. If you leave an indentation, edema is present.
If congestive heart failure is present, mix one teaspoon of cayenne pepper in half a cup of lukewarm water. You can use cayenne capsules if this is too difficult.
Mustard oil is an effective home remedy for edema. Take some warm mustard oil and rub it on the affected areas. Soak 2 teaspoons of mustard seeds in water and apply the solution to the affected areas. Apple cider vinegar helps to remove excess fluid in the body cells and cavities.
Supplements which may help edema are
magnesium, potassium and bromelain.
Magnesium deficiency has been
associated with edema and it is
variously estimated that anywhere
from 70 to 95% of us are deficient
Lie down with your feet up. This will allow the fluid collected in the legs to go to the circulatory system and from there to the kidneys for excretion.
