Edema Herbal Tonic

Edema is a swelling of the body tissues and results in excessive amounts of tissue fluid. It is sometimes called dropsy. There are many different areas of the body that edema may affect. Diuretics are generally the accepted treatment as the fluid needs to be drawn from the body. Restricting salt intake is recommended, along with bed rest. The patient is placed on a diet that is rich in vitamins, low in salt, and high in calories. Once large amounts of urine have been passed, the patient is placed on a regular diet.

Edema Herbal Tonic with Potatoes

Here is an old Irish remedy for dropsy that has been in use for centuries. Clean 2 potatoes thoroughly and peel. Add the peelings to 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes, covered. Strain and add 3 tablespoons of the liquid to a glass of water or cranberry juice. Drink 4 glasses daily until swelling has gone down.

It sometimes helps to thin the blood, especially if you have heart problems. Caution: If you are on heart medication, consult your doctor. These are natural treatments to thin the blood. Vitamin C thins the blood. I believe it really wouldn't hurt to start taking it on a regular basis.
