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.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
Exercising often is important to stop your feet from swelling. Exercise helps blood flow and stops blood from building up in your lower limbs.
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.

Listen everyone if you are suffering from this it means your kidney and liver are damaged you need to go and see doctor before its too late

i had swollen feet for years & i just found out 4 days ago that it's because i haven't been drinking enough water , i pretty much drank soda & coffee hardly any water .. since i found out iv'e drank a small pond & my feet and ankles have gone down & i can fit into my shoes again..... DRINK A LOT A LOT OF WATER .
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.
I've had some excellent result in bringing down swelling of the feet and ankles by eating pineapple at least once or twice a day. The 'bromelain' in the fruit is mostly concentrated in the central stem and can be eaten for maximum effect. You can often extract juice from the portion discarded for storing in the refrigerator and drinking in between meals. When attending a banquet or eating a heavy meal, pineapple along with papaya are the fruits of choice. In pregnancy, allergy and clotting of blood treatment the fruit should be avoided. Better to consult a nutritionist and doctor in such cases.
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!
Lizzie Sangi Your rite , I'm seriously going to put an effort in to losing some weight I'm sure that most of my battle with the swelling ty for your honesty your comment really resinated ,I'm sick of settling and I swear I'm waldling no joke I'm sick to death of it thx for reminding me!
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.
I got pain in my left leg and i was unable to walk..
I don't know the reason why is this happening..
I showed my leg to almost 3-4 doctors but they are only giving me pain killers and now they're telling to do a blood test.
its been 1 month.
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
