Leg swelling, known as edema, or body fluid retention, cause pain and can be the result of:
– Poor circulation
– Excessive consumption of salty foods
– Sedentary lifestyle
– Side effects of certain drugs
One of the most effective natural remedies in such cases is parsley, used by Hippocrates himself. Studies show that this herb can prevent many diseases such as asthma, allergies, menstrual pain, urinary tract problems, digestive disorders, and can be extremely beneficial because it can help treat bronchitis, improves breathing and reduces blood pressure. It’s recommended as a general tonic in case of rheumatism, kidney stones or as a poison antidote.
How to prepare parsley tea
Chop finely the parsley roots and leaves. Place about ¼ cup of parsley in a cup of hot water and let it soak for 5-7 minutes then strain. Finally, you can add ginger, lemon or honey to enrich the taste. For maximum results, you should drink it hot.
Besides drinking tea, do exercises every night with your feet to stimulate fluids circulation, and when you lay down put your legs up on pillows to be above the heart.
