Edema and Swelling Problems

Many 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
Edema derives from a Greek word 'Oidema' meaning "swelling." Basically, edema is the excessive accumulation of fluid in spaces between the cells caused by either lymphatic system or venous system defect or disorder. The milder form of edema is referred to as 'water retention,' which is common in a lot of people.

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
  • Injuries
  • Lack of movement (such as sitting in the same position for too long)
  • Pregnancy
  • Menstruation
  • Medications
Symptoms

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
Healing Edema Naturally

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

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 exercise

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: Dietary Intervention

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
  • sodium benzoate
  • sodium chloride
  • sodium nitrate
Refrain from consuming meat and dairy products, refined grains and starches, processed food-stuffs, sugary and salty snacks, such as chips, popcorn, pretzels, cookies, etc.

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.

Antibiotics in Animal Feed Allowed to Continue, Rules Appeals Court

The U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that the FDA does not have to ban farms from putting antibiotics in animal feed for reasons other than treating illnesses.

Used to rapidly increase weight, putting antibiotics in animal feed is a common and highly controversial practice because of the rise in widespread antibiotic-resistant “superbug” infections.

“Today, 80 percent of all the antibiotics sold in the United States are used in livestock production – not humans,” NRDC said  in a statement. “Since FDA first recognized the risks of giving low doses of antibiotics in animal feed day after day, nearly four decades ago, the science on the risks of such use has only gotten stronger.”
