Home Remedies for Swollen Feet

Do you know anyone who suffers from swollen feet? Swollen feet is not a problem itself, but points to a deeper issue. This usually happens when there’s a build-up of fluid in the tissue, making them swell. This is known as edema. As the swelling gets worse, it gets more uncomfortable and it may become hard to walk or stand. It can also get more painful, and the feet may be red. Looking for a cure? Here are some things you can try at home to bring the swelling down. Contrast Hydrotherapy Hydrotherapy is therapy using water to lessen pain and discomfort. For this type of hydrotherapy, you will use both warm and cold water. The warm water will help blood flow, and the cold water will bring down the swelling in your feet. Massage One of the best cures for swollen feet is a foot massage. This helps aching muscles and gets the blood flowing. It also helps extra fluid drain to bring down swelling. Epsom Salt Epsom salt can bring down swelling very fast, while soothing pain too. This is because it has magnesium sulfate which can be soaked up by the skin to help the blood flow and bring down the swelling. It is also helps sore, tired muscles, and can kill foot odor. Ginger Since ginger is a natural diuretic, it brings down the amount of water in the body, and helps treat swollen feet. This is because it lessens the sodium in the body which is a big cause of swelling. Dandelion Dandelion is a great cure for swollen feet. It helps the body absorb extra fluids because of its diuretic quality. It also helps keep track of the sodium level in the body. Exercise Exercising often is important to stop your feet from swelling. Exercise helps blood flow and stops blood from building up in your lower limbs. Magnesium If your body is missing magnesium, that may cause swelling in the feet due to edema. Make sure to eat foods that are full of magnesium to help fight this problem. Here are some other tips to cure swollen feet - Elevate your legs so that they are higher than the level of your heart. - Limit the amount of salt and caffeine you have, because they cause feet to swell. - Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, instead of canned goods, which have added salt for storage. - Drink lots of water to keep your body hydrated and clean out bad bacteria. - Avoid sitting for long hours. Instead, take breaks and walk around a bit. - When taking long trips in a car, bus, train, or plane, think about wearing compression stockings to stop feet from swelling.

Sleep flat on your back with your lower legs resting on top of a padded apple box. Your feet will drain a little more every night. After 2 months they will be skinny feet.

My entire body looked like this after taking Lyrica. I was carried to the hospital where I was admitted for 4 days to get the swelling down. I'm a skinny person and I don't swell. No more Lyrica for me.

I had this in my lower leg. I have been on Horse Chestnut ever since and I have not had this problem since. You also have to walk alot and do other excercises. This often happens with older age. Another thing to help restore the valves in your arteries is Gotu Kola powder.

This video is full of shit. Swollen feet are caused by a poor diet and lack of exercise. Stop the sugar, salt, bread, meat and move your ass. Reality check--Starbucks sells poison. Water? Lets me tell you something. Water flushes the "toilet" that is in your body an d helps it metabolize food, nutrients efficiently. Water cleans your organs... Do Cardio and weight training at least 3 times a week, preferably 4

Those are all great preventative and curative actions but I would like to add one more---check with your doctor if you are on blood pressure medications. I was on one kind that caused my feet and ankles to look like this picture and thought that it was strictly because I was on my feet for long hours at work, and had high blood pressure. As soon as I changed to another antihypertensive medication, my edema went away almost totally. So, please check with your medication too, if you are on a heart med. Dottie RN

Wow those feet and legs are in seriously bad condition, from seriously bad health. That woman needs to start losing weight immediately and give herself an overhaul in the diet and body dept. Don't people realize how much better and happier they will feel about themselves if they take a bit of pride and interest in themselves? You allow yourself to get frumpy and overweight and settle for it. Women waddle, not walk. Sorry, sympathy you don't get. Those are serious health issues. Bad enough the swelling happens in healthy bodies. Care about YOU!

Yup only do this if your FEET look normal color, and you then see a doctor. If your feet appear to pink or blue, DO NOT USE WATER. Its fine to give yourself temp relief, but swelling is the bodies alarm showing physically something is serious (and in many cases very easy to treat too) but cannot simply be ignored. I make it clear as crystal - DO NOT PUT SWOLLEN FEET THAT ARE NOT YOUR NORMAL SKIN COLOR IN HOT THEN COLD WATER YOU WILL INSTANTLY SUFFER HYPERCOAGULATION. IT IS THEN A RACE AGAINST TIME IF THEY CAN SAVE YOU OR NOT. With low circulation *a cause of swollen feet, when you rapidly change temp the blood can and does clot. Its going to HURT like hell, its a race, if the circulation comes back VERY fast it may be able to destroy the clot, but if its slow, it will not break the clot and push it like a ticking time bomb direct to your heart, which will KILL YOU. You will instantly know you have a clot, the bodies main alarm (extreme pain) goes off - do not move, tie off the leg and dial 911 as quick as you can. if you can stop the clot moving out of your leg you might live to tell others dont do it. Remember only applies if ur feet are not their normal color.

Jesus loves you! corn silk pills help also and make sure your salt is pure not iodinized salt. real salt like pink himaylan sea salt . and drink distilled water. keep elevated but I notice if I'm higher off ground but level it helps a lot and being dehydrated causes swelling also so make sure to drink enough water extra if you can and do leg lifts throughout day and most importantly Pray. Jesus is our Healer our Healing. we need to learn to receive. :) I know its painful God will get you and I through. Jesus loves you!!!

My grandmother used to,have swelled ankles, and her cure was a simple one and it worked. She took raw parsley and cut it up fine, and put it in a saucer of cold water beside the sink, so everytime she was t the sink she used to,eat a little bit of raw parsley and over the day this would have mounted up. Her swelled ankles disappeared, and she was never troubled with them. This is easy for anyone who wants to try it and it can't do you any harm. Greetings from Northern Ireland.

Really wonderful tips and I'm going to be adding these to a pedicure regimen I'm devising for a friend with terribly swollen feet. This is what I plan to do: 1. The warm and cold water alternating bath soak, but I'll be adding the Epsom Salt. 2. Apple Cider Vinegar foot soak with either eucalyptus or lavender oil. 3. Turmeric, Ginger, Coconut Oil, Honey, Organic Brown Rice Flour and Egg foot mask 4. Baking Soda and Brown Rice Flour foot scrub. 5. Olive and Ginger Oil foot massage. I've also made for her (and myself) a Turmeric tea with the Turmeric, Ginger, Organic Raw Neem Honey, Pepper, Ghee Butter, Coconut Oil, Apple Cider Vinegar, Purified Water and Coconut Milk. It's really delicious! I'm thinking of adding ground almonds to it as well. Thank you for this video because it helped me nail down exactly what I'm going to do for her.

Swelling of the foot after surgery can last several months. I'm six weeks out of plantar plate surgery and still have swelling, but I was informed by my surgeon that it can last several months. Elevation and ice are top on the list in reducing swelling soon after surgery. These video cures are good, but you must be patient.

I play rugby on a sports team and basketball with friends. Recently (2 weeks ago) I sprained my ankle while playing basketball in my drive way. I went to the hospital and the paediatrician said 4-6 weeks recovery and I think I’m suffering from Edema on the same sprained ankle. Is this normal? I don’t have diabetes, I’m a 16 year old male, and I exercise every day. I followed RICE and the Edema seems to be going down, I just wanna know for sure that I’m suffering from Edema because of my injury. Thanks!

On a recent trip to Italia, my favorite place in the world, I was miserably edematous. I even took one day mid touring to stay in bed and keep my feet up. It only helped a bit, but my legs and feet would immediately swell again. On top of that I even got nasty blisters on the first day of walking in Fiorenza. It was awful. But I muscled through, fell twice and still made it on my own without my hubby.

Before I had Lymphodema, years ago I had problems with ankles and feet swelling occasionally.I was seeing a personal trainer. She had her masters degree from UCBerkley in nutrition. She had me go to a health food store that had a selection of teas I could buy by the baggy. I got Corn Silk Tea, and Dandelion Root tree. Brewed the, in my Mr Coffee a pot at a time. The Corn Silk is a powerful natural diuretic & the dandelion root contains a multitude of minerals. They have long roots in order to search for the nutrition in the soil. It has to be dandelion ROOT. I would start drinking the tea, and I could actually see my feet & ankles shrink in size. Be sure to try it on a day when you are not going anywhere and a lot of water besides the water in the tea.

Need advise, please. After having a car accident where my knees hit the dashboard, and my lower mid-section bent the steering wheel, channels within my vascular system were torn apart. This means only some of the urine and other bodily toxins get voided which means, much of that fluid gets trapped in my legs and lower mid-section, causing severe swelling. (just above the ankles = 18", just below the kneecap = 34", mid-section = 72") I NEVER eat salt or processed foods, nor do I drink sodas or caffinated items as it makes me retain fluid. So, my question to you is......Wouldn't Epsom Salt get soaked-up into my body thru my feet, causing even more edema since it IS salt?....... Of course, I do take diuretics which do not help much but I cannot take any more than I already take which is 80mg x 2 daily PLUS 25mg of Hydrochlorothiazide, AND my life is spent laying or sitting with my feet above my heart 95% of every day which means I have no life. Basically, I'm in jail, or more like solitary confinement, for a crime I did NOT commit. Help would be greatly appreciated. FYI...I CANNOT have the wraps due to a weak heart after the last stroke. Please advise. Thank You. I Am, Patrisha

I'm going to try three ginger teas daily and the epsom salt soaks. Soon I will have access to a lap pool, and though I can't swim, I will use a facemask, snorkle, and flippers and should do well with them.  30 minutes swimming per day plus a 30 minute bike ride should really help, I hope. Now I read below that Col Gog says use only COLD foot baths if any. Is he/she right? BTW, who is the narrator of this video? I'm in love with her voice!

After knee surgery the MD told me to rock my feet up and down (Full extension down and up) for about 20 strokes every hour while awake. It really helped keep down the edema and the compression stockings do as well. Note to NATURAL CURES; Music way too loud, reduce the volume.

One of the recommendations you mention is SOYBEANS ???? Are you nuts ?? Soy beans are GMO. 90 % of soy beans grown are GMO. The only soy for the human body is fermented such as miso, soy sauce, tempeh, and natto. Any other form is poison.

col gog (1 year ago)
Contrast baths should never be used when oedema is present. Only cold therapy should be used if you are going to use it at all. The effect of heat is that is causes hyperaemia which is an increase in bloodflow. In addition, the heat increases the permeability of the of the blood vessel wall leading to blood plasma 'escaping' from the vessel. It is this that manifests as swelling.

Brandon Gaiter pls have the doctor check out your swelling because it's probably not the weed you smoke ..there are many health benefits to hemp( Weed)if you don't want to smoke it then don't your not a baby anymore you have to make your own decisions now . people (your friends) will actually respect you for not being a "JELLY FISH",Having back bone is hot don't forget that!
SOYBEANS, IN ANY FORM ARE HORRIBLE FOR ANYONE/ANYTHING TO EAT. They contain CANCER causing cells. They are directly linked to OBESITY. They were NEVER meant for CONSUMPTION! They're trying to put them into EVERYTHING, including different types of products you'd never dream have it added in. CHECK LABELS! Research SOYBEANS & what they do to the BODY! You will be SHOCKED!
