The main culprit for the occurrence of edema is considered to be water, but it is fundamentally wrong. The man on 70% consists of water, and if that starts to accumulate in the cells in amounts exceeding the natural rate, then something that helps.
Swelling most often occur in hot summer weather, when the body is reacting to external conditions, trying to create a certain reserve of moisture just in case. If you drastically limit the consumption of water, you will give the body the signal that the water ran out, and he does everything right. Swelling did not decrease, and once drunk a glass of liquid only will strengthen their display.
So drink enough in the heat. Excess moisture in a healthy person always is expelled by the kidneys or sweat. But what should be restricted, so that consumption of salt, smoked meats, fatty foods. Drink herbal and green teas, eat fruits (especially watermelons), enter in your diet dairy products, baked potatoes, beans, celery.
Pour in a bucket of warm water, dissolve it in 300 grams of sea or regular table salt, put your feet in the water for 20-30 minutes. Salt bath promotes the pulling of water from the cell tissue swelling after the first foot baths will be much less.
Not perekrashivat feet, do not stack them on one another. Better put on a small elevation and try to stay like this for at least a while. The force of gravity will cause a flow of fluid from tired legs, reduce their volume.
A contrast shower will cause increased blood circulation in the legs, which also favors the reduction of swelling. But the spill in this case only the legs, finish the procedure with cold water, and then allow the legs to dry in air.
But that is categorically not to do so is to get involved diuretics without the advice and supervision of a physician. Uncontrolled passion diuretics can cause dehydration, is fraught with more serious consequences.
