Edema, or ordinarily known as swelling, is thought to be a gathering of liquid in the tissues of our body.
This gathering is brought about by a few reasons, hypertension, pregnancy and most usually by kidney issues.
Edema, without anyone else is not destructive, but rather it is exceptionally uncomfortable. Be that as it may, in the event that you see that one foot or leg is swelling significantly more than the other, you have to call your specialist, since it might be a blood coagulation and you have to take care of that issue as quickly as time permits.
You will need:
- ½ cup mint leaves
- 4 cups water
Place the mint leaves and water in a pot over fire. Let it stand for about 10 minutes, than remove from fire and let it cool down for about 10 minutes. Pour the water in a bucket and soak your feet for half an hour.
Tonic Water bath
This may sound odd but tonic water can help you get rid of the swollen feet and ankles.
Soak your feet in room temperature tonic water, or in cold if you can bare it, for half an hour. The quinine and the bubbles can be of a big help in the process of reducing inflammation.
Salt water bath
Prepare a salt water bath by adding a handful of Epsom salts in a bucket of water, enough to cover your ankles. Epsom salts are amazing for relaxing the muscles.
