Edema and Swelling ProblemsMany times, the body swells in response to some adverse condition in the body. Certain injuries tend to make the body swell. This is a defense mechanism of the body. It's like being socked in the eye. Immediately after being socked in the eye, the eye swells. http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
Causes of swelling
Swelling and edema can be cause by a wide variety of things:
- Poor diet is a major cause of edema
- In response to some other condition in the body such as congestive heart failure, kidney disease, cirrhosis of the liver, damaged leg veins, diabetes, compromised lymphatic system
- Lack of movement (such as sitting in the same position for too long)
Symptoms of edema include:
- Inflammation or swelling
- Stretched skin
- Shiny skin
- Skin that's slow to restore to its natural state after being pressed on by an object
- Increased size in a limb, body part or abdomen
Diuretic herbs are ideal in reversing or healing edema and other swelling conditions. Good diuretic herbs include: Buchu, Uva Ursi, Parsley, Cornsilk, Juniper Berry, Agrimony, Celery Seed, Queen of the Meadow, and Pelitory of the Wall.
Lymphatic massage can be helpful in reducing edema and other swelling conditions. Lymphatic massage is a form of massage that helps move the lymph flow that is very important for maintaining health and wellbeing. It also helps to improve circulation throughout the body.
Anti-gravity exercises help all degenerative conditions because it helps to bring oxygen flow to the brain, but also just as importantly, it helps improve circulation of the blood and lymph. Slant boards make anti-gravity exercises easy today in your very own home. They are available from:
Modify your diet! Salty and/or spicy foods are contraindicated and should be avoided. White table salt and other sodium types promote fluid retention in the tissues of the body. Be careful of anything that says:
- sodium benzoate
- sodium chloride
- sodium nitrate
Your best bet is to eat more plant-based foods, more raw fruits and vegetables (organic, if possible).
Refrain from consuming beverages such as milk, wine, beer, spirits (alcohol), lattes, shakes and malts, soda pop, fruit juice from concentrate, Kool Aid, etc.

I can definitely help you!
I run an online vegan health/fitness/nutriton program over skype at www.theveganeffect.com. I have coached many to their best health and have reversed all of the problems you have. Please check out the site!
Let's go through them one by one shall we? Lymph-edema is a build up of fluid. Your lymphatic system like your liver and kidney are your bodies garbage men. When toxicity gets to overwhelming your garbage men go on strike or are just overwhelmed. You should do a cleanse/detox and do exercises that stimulate the lymphatic system. The best would be a mini trampoline. Just 15 minutes a day goes far. Lympedema is healed by a high alkaline diet. Increasing greens and fruits while decreasing dairy, meat, alcohol, salt, and processed food.
Tendonitis can be healed also by an anti-inflammatory diet . Increasing berries and greens while decreasing dairy, meat, salt, and alcohol.
Thyroid can be repaired also by an alkaline diet and detox. You can find a thyroid support formula at dherbs.com.
Diabetes is reversed using a low fat raw vegan diet. In 30 days you can completely get off insulin if you cut out the fat and get on a high carb raw vegan diet. The only programs who are actually reversing diabetes are using the same protocol as my program. I do not do a low carb diet especially when reversing diabetes. None of the programs healing your condition do either. Diabetes is not a carb issue but a fat issue. Fat coats your cells and blocks the sugar insulin connection. A low carb diet is a high fat diet and will only manage your condition at best.
The first of many ebooks I will write for Dherbs is titled "Go Vegan the Healthy Way!" It is being edited nowe and hopefully soon it will be available at a low cost. Look for it on Dherbs. I will email you when it is available as well.
A typical detox raw food program looks like this
Green smoothie: 1 1/2- 2 cups water / 1 cup greens / 3-5 medium pieces of fruit blended.
(see "Green Smoothie Revolution" Boutenko for more info)
Bridge: 2-3 medium sized fruits
Raw Wraps: collard greens as wraps/ tomato, cucumber, bell pepper / fresh herbs / Sauce (salsa/tahini/guacamole/ etc))
Bridge:2-3 medium pieces of fruit
Raw pasta: Zuchini sliced with a potato peeler / veggies / Homemade pasta sauce made in blender
Snack: Sorbet: Blended frozen fruit in a blender
Hope this helps,

There is a cure or healing for every disease under the sun including kidney disease. I have helped numerous people over the year with kidney issues, including a man in the hospital who couldn't pass water and who took my Kidney-Bladder formula and passed water (urine) to the doctor's amazement.
To cure Kidney-Bladder failure/problems, detox your body with Full Body Detox 3-4 times per year. After the FBD, your daily regimen should consist of Kidney-Bladder-Adrenal formula (3 capsules 5 times per day) and the Dherbs Kidneys (Uro-Genital) tea (1-2 cups per day).
A 1-hour health consultation to deal with the deeper mental-emotional-psychological causes of your kidney ailment would prove most beneficial.
I do not recommend a kidney transplant and your body will reject it and you may die within months or a few years after receiving such. Plus, it's a disrespect to God as God gave you good kidneys at birth and you allowed the world of man (Matrix) to destroy them. However, God is most merciful and forgiving, and thus, you can heal the kidneys God gave you.
Every cell of the body can restore itself. Every last one of them! Cells regenerate! Doctors are full of bullshit in that certain cells cannot regenerate. That's a lie! All cells, including brain cells, regenerate if properly fed.
There is hope, Beloved. Just believe in a cure and a cure shall appear. Actually, it already has. The cure has always been there for you.
"Stevens-Johnson Syndrome" Stevens-Johnson Disease takes its name from two doctors, Albert M. Stevens, American pediatrician, b. 1884; and F.C. Johnson, an American physician, b. 1894. What is Stevens-Johnson syndrome? Stevens-Johnson syndrome is medically defined as: â€œA serious, sometimes fatal inflammatory disease affecting children and young adults. It is characterized by the acute onset of fever, bullae on the skin, and ulcers on the mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia. Pneumonia, pain in the joints, and prostration are common. A complication may be perforation of the cornea. The syndrome may be an allergic reaction to certain drugs, or it may follow pregnancy, herpes virus I, or other infection. See also erythema multiforme.â€ â€“ Mosbyâ€™s Medical Dictionary, 3rd ed., p. 1117 Okay, now to break things down in laymanâ€™s term for purposes of clear and simple understanding. So-called Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a medical term applied to a case of toxicity whereby the blood and lymph fluids are greatly polluted and toxic and whereby there is a large presence of MUCUS in the body (specifically the mucous membranes, the internal skin), which causes INFLAMMATION! When the skin is inflamed, mucus (thick, yellowish colored mucus) is usually the culprit. There are two kinds of mucus: bad mucus which is yellow-greenish in color, thick, stubborn and very sticky; and, good mucus, â€œa viscous, slippery secretion of the mucous membranes and glands, containing mucin, white blood cells, water, inorganic salts, and exfoliated cells.â€ â€“ Mosbyâ€™s supra, p. 774 All skin conditions are blood disorders. The skin always manifests the condition of the blood. External skin problems also denote internal skin problems and what is the external skin? Answer: The mucous membranes! Mucous membrane is medically defined as: â€œany of four major kinds of thin sheets of tissue that cover or line various parts of the body. Mucous membranes line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, such as the lining of the mouth, the digestive tube, the respiratory passages, and the genitourinary tract. It consists of a surface of epithelial tissue covering a deeper later of connective tissue and protects the underlying structure, secretes mucus, and absorbs water, salts and other solutes. Compare serous membrane, skin, synovial membrane.â€ â€“ Mosbyâ€™s supra, p. 774 Now, WHOOMP, There it is! Clearly, Stevens-Johnson syndrome is an adverse condition of the mucous membranes whereby the mucous membranes are inflamed (mucositis) due to an over-acidic condition (or acidosis). Now, in the definition of mucous membranes supra, it states the mucous membranes covers certain parts of the body and line cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside, i.e. mouth, digestive tube, respiratory passage, and genitourinary tract. Now in the definition of the syndrome itself supra, where does the syndrome manifest? Did not the definition (of Stevens-Johnson syndrome) say: â€œâ€¦. skin, â€¦ mucous membranes of the lips, eyes, mouth, nasal passage, and genitalia?â€ Yes it did! Are not these body parts, cavities or canals of the body that open to the outside of the body? Yes they are! Well, there you have it! Clearly Stevens-Johnson syndrome is a big medical word (though not that big and/or complex) describing something so basic as a mucus congestion leading to skin inflammation of certain cavities and canals of the body that lead to the outside, i.e. MOUTH (which includes the lips), EYES (which includes the cornea), NASAL PASSAGE (which links to the nose), and GENITALIA. Causes of Stevens-Johnson syndrome Because this syndrome (disease) involves mucus that tie into (or stems from) acidity, we know that the physical manifestation of this disease stems from poor and/or insalubrious diet, one high in acid-forming and mucopurulent so-called foods and beverages, i.e. meat (slaughtered animal flesh), dairy products (cow snot and pus); refined grains (i.e. white bread, white rice, white flour, pastries like cakes, cookies, donuts, etc.) and starches and a host of other so-called foods, as well as soda pop, milk, beer, wine, coffee, cocoa, etc. The greatest culprit of the physical manifestation of this disease is MUCUS from acid-forming foods (DEAD FOODS)! But because diet is involved here, this means the disease degenerative in nature and is 100% REVERSIBLE via change of diet and lifestyle as well as mindset/thought process and attitude. Healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome naturally Like with every other major disease, DETOXIFYING the body is the first external step in healing from this disease. We actually begin the detox process when we begin to eat live, organic, sun-cooked or sun-baked foods, i.e. fruits and vegetables. Therefore, a change to a RAW FOODS and VEGAN-vegetarian diet would be ideal for healing. It would be wise to abstain from consuming all meat, dairy, refined grains, and refined starch products, and all acidic and effervescent beverages (i.e. soda pop, beer, etc.). Drink plenty of water (half gallon to gallon, depending on your body weight). Water helps to dissolve hardened mucus in the body. If you can find alkaline water, drink this water. The best waters are alkaline pH, negative charged, microclustered or structured, and ionic. The best way to get this kind of water is via ionic water machines from Asia. See www.ionizers.org/alkalife.html for more information. Soak daily in hot water (or warm water if you prefer), sea salt (1-2 boxes), and 1 cup 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Soak for at least 30 minutes before you start bathing. Rub your body down (from had to toe) after all baths/soaks and/or showers with Dherbs.Com OZ OIL. This is a miraculous healing oil and one of our best sellers! Our customers rave about this oil. There are plenty of herbs that can assist in the healing of Stevens-Johnson syndrome.

These herbs should be taken together in a compound or mixture (not every single one of them, in case you canâ€™t obtain all of them, but most of them). Dherbs.Com products that can assist in healing from Stevens-Johnson syndrome include FULL BODY DETOX (and CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) for small children), 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE, and 10-DAY SUPREME BLOOD CLEANSE kit.

We'd recommend you perform our 10-Day Supreme Kidneys Cleanse and once you're done with that 10-day cleanse, take 3 capsules daily of Kidneys, Bladder & Adrenals Formula. We'd also suggest you take 2-3 capsules daily of our Sex Organs Cleanser. Drink 1 cup of vegetable juice daily as well, especially celery juice and parsley.
From what you wrote I would suggest you start drinking alkaline water (purchase an alkaline water machine, you can find various brands in our e-book "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual"). If you are urinating within 10-15 minutes of drinking water you are not absorbing the water, and thus you require micro-clustered water which an alkaline (and ionizing) water machine does. I also highly recommend consumption of our Kidneys-Bladder formula (3 capsules per day).
I WOULD RECOMMEND COLON REPAIR. CONSIDER THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE AND IT'S CORRELATING DIET (WHICH COMES WITH THE CLEANSE) AND DRINK MUCH VEGETABLE AND FRUIT JUICE, BUT ESPECIALLY VEGETABLE JUICE. FRUITS SMOOTHIES WILL ALSO HELP REPAIR THE COLON. DRINK 2-4 OUNCES OF ALOE VERA JUICE IN A GLASS OF WATER. PERFORM ANTI-GRAVITY EXERCISES 15-MINUTES PER DAY (HAVE LEGS RAISED HIGHER THAN THE FACE - I.E. LEGS UP AGAINST THE WALL WITH HEAD AND BACK ON THE GROUND). PERFORM ENEMAS AND COLONICS AS WELL. ALL ORGANS ARE REPAIRABLE AND THEREFORE YOU CAN HEAL YOURSELF OF THIS CRISIS. PEACE, OPTIMAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING BE UNTO YOU.
Yes, it will help remedy but nothing is better to remedy a thing than change of diet. For water retention, take KIDNEYS AND BLADDER formula and leave sodium chloride (salt) alone! Eat celery!
