How to get rid of swollen legs feet and ankles fast naturally due to fluid retention and edema. Home remedies for swollen feet. Our body can eliminate the excess fluids on its own, through urine, or sweat. However, when its function is affected, the fluid starts accumulating in the tissues, and causes swelling. The swelling is most prominent in legs, feet, ankles, hands, and sometimes even in face. This is known as peripheral edema. There are two types of edema. pitting edema, and non-pitting edema. In pitting edema, an indentation is formed, when pressured is applied on the swollen area. This indentation will persist for sometime, even after the pressure is released. The causes for pitting edema are: Sitting for too long. Congestive heart failure. High intake of Sodium. Deficiency of Potassium and magnesium. Pregnancy. Medication side effects. Wearing tight socks, etc., In non-pitting edema, indentation is not formed when pressure is applied. Non-pitting edema is caused due to disorders in lymphatic system. Non-pitting edema is more serious, and difficult to treat, than pitting edema. Whatever might be the reasons for swelling and fluid retention, you must consult your doctor, immediately. However, there are some home remedies you could take, to reduce swelling in the body. 1. Drink water. Drinking less than the recommended amount of water, which is 6-8 glasses a day, can dehydrate your body, and is very dangerous to your health. In cases of dehydration, the body tries to rehydrate itself, by taking water from different tissues, which may lead to fluid retention and other serious health problems. 2. Reduce the intake of sodium. Sodium is present in almost any of the foods we eat every day, so it’s really hard to avoid. However, consuming too much of it can cause numerous health problems, including fluid retention. 3. Avoid processed foods. Processed foods are rich in sugar and sodium, which are among the main risk factors for fluid retention, and a variety of other diseases and conditions. You must avoid processed foods as much as possible. 4. Eat potassium, and magnesium rich foods. Potassium deficiency has been linked to fluid imbalance, as well as improperly functioning organs. Magnesium is very important for our health, and we need about 200 mg of it a day. In case of these deficiencies, the body will experience fluid retention. So make sure to eat nuts, seeds, whole grains, and avocado, in order to optimize the levels of the minerals in your body. 6. Eat Vitamin B6 rich food. Lack of this vitamin, is one of the main causes of fluid retention. Eat more tuna, pistachios, bananas, chicken, and sunflower seeds, in order to resolve the problem. 7. Exercise. In order to prevent fluid retention, exercise is key. Start being physically active today, in order to keep the levels of fluids in your body regulated, and keep everything functioning properly. Go for a walk, run, or swim, and aim for 30 minutes of exercise per day 3 times a week, or more, if you have the time. 8. Elevate your legs. While sleeping, or resting, elevate your legs with a pillow, to reduce the swelling in your ankles, and prevent accumulation of fluids in your joints. 9. Don't wear tight clothes. Wearing tight clothes can impair your circulation, and cause numerous problems. Also, don't wear socks which are too tight. If you follow these tips, you may steer clear of the condition and stay healthy. About HomeYog: HomeYog is here to help you live life to the fullest.

I'm not kidding I'm like why the hell i'm here if he doesn't know anything ?! and that is . in the united State of America Hospitals . it is very annoying seeking help from them people . and they cost us a lot of money !!!!

I've been suffering from the swelling in my ankle and the right side of my knee for WEEKS which is very hard and painful to walk, climb stairs and to change clothes! I've been drinking lots of water and eating as much healthy food as I can to improve my diet and I phoned my doctor and she says that I need to be careful with my exercise intake and to take 6 ibuprophen tablets a day

last month i went to the hospital because I noticed i had the prickling sensation you get when you lose circulation of in my legs, left arm, and mouth....also my left calf was swollen. i when i got there they said that my potassium level was borderline zero.....but the thing is they diagnosed my left as a sprain...i never sprained my ankle. i woke up and my calf was swollen. it's been over a month and my calf is still very much swollen and the meds they gave me did jack sh**.....I looked up any other possibilities for my calf....Apparent, Blood Clots cause swollen as well....Now I'm very worried....I plan on going to the doctor monday to see what they can do.

The Syncshadow Doctors are clueless. Had fluid overload for 3 months and they were clueless. Had to have dialysis done.

You are having a laugh ? I just bin in hospital being in a saltwater drip, if got lack of salt, which I know is very rare, if got heartfailior, so I can't eat bananas because the potassium interferes with my heart tables, and I can't do a lot of exercise because of my heart condition. Do you actually know what you are talking about ?
Amanda Peterson (3 months ago)
Feriin amen!
Feriin (3 months ago)
johnina Ryan - How about you just reverse your Heart Failure. Take whole heart supplements, and exercise. Your heart will improve. P.S. stop poisoning it with "heart medications" such as beta blockers.

Cut down or eliminate all Sodium ( SALT ) From your food & Have your Doctor Prescribe some Lasix ( WATER PILLS ) To help eliminate the Fluid in your body which caused Edema , Causing your Legs & feet to swell up etc.

My doctor recommended I wear compression stockings to reduce the swelling in my ankles and feet. Your video said don't wear tight socks. I get the same pressure marks in the video with compression stockings.
Jessi Brunson (4 months ago)
HomeYog .... Isn't it alright to wear the compression socks that go to the knee...if your swelling is in the knees and ankles?
George Cortez (4 months ago)

HomeYog (11 months ago)
+Rocky Compression stockings are different than tight socks. Compression stockings provide measured pressure along ur legs. More pressure at your ankle n feet and gradually relaxing as they go up the leg. Tight sock do the opposite n they cutoff the circulation to leg.
