This Powerful Tea Can Reduce Swollen Feet & Ankles

Swollen feet or ankles are the result of fluid accumulation in the base of the legs. This swelling, commonly referred to as edema, can be attributed to long periods of sitting or standing, but puffiness can also occur during hot weather. If the person does not have edema, swollen feet or ankles may be linked to kidney problems, heart disorders, or poor blood circulation.

 

What Is Edema?

On its own, edema is not considered to be harmful, but it can most certainly be uncomfortable. Edema can result from diet, pregnancy, medications, or an underlying disease. Caused by fluid that is trapped in bodily tissues, edema most commonly occurs in the ankles, feet, legs, and hands. If one leg swells up or you experience partial facial swelling, you may be experiencing a blood clot and the need to address that pronto is paramount. If edema is a symptom of an underlying issue, you must address that issue to get rid of the swelling for good.

 

The Journal of Ethno-pharmacology recently published a study that focused on an herb that may help decrease swelling. Acting as a diuretic that works to inhibit sodium and potassium ion pumps, parsley influences the process of osmosis by way increasing urinary flow. Parsley is also loaded with potassium, and many diuretic drugs deplete the body’s potassium levels.

 

Benefits of Parsley:

While parsley is often looked at as a simple plate garnish, it has many uses in the world of natural remedies. Scientists have found that parsley is rich in nine powerful antioxidants, folate, and vitamins A and C. Beyond its ability to reduce swelling and water weight, parsley can also balance blood sugar levels, and the inherent flavonoid (apigenin) possesses remarkable anti-cancer properties. Eugenol, a powerful oil in parsley, has strong anti-inflammatory properties that help suppress joint swelling.

 

Dr. John R. Christopher, a big name in the herbalist world, encourages people with edema to drink two quarts of parsley tea every day to reduce swelling and fluid retention. When you make a batch of tea, use the stems and leaves of parsley bunches. You can make a giant batch in one go or you can make one quart at a time.

 

Ingredients For One Quart Of Tea:

  • 1 cup parsley, chopped
  • 4 cups water

Instructions:

  • Boil the water in a saucepan and place the parsley in an infusion basket or several fine mesh reusable tea bags.
  • Once the water has finished boiling, remove it from the heat and add the infusion basket or tea bags of parsley to the water. Let this steep for five minutes.
  • Remove the parsley from the water and use an optional tablespoon of raw honey to sweeten the tea.
  • Drink two batches of this tea per day until the swelling goes down.

    Q: I have been having a problem with my feet and ankles swelling off and on for the past few years. I have seen medical Dr.'s who diagnosed me with tendonitis, said they weren't sure of the problem so they would have to run tests, and who gave me prescriptions for water pills, but the swelling continues. What could be the cause?

    A:

    Perhaps, too much sodium (salt) in the diet. You should perform the FULL BODY DETOX which comes along with a dietary change (as you need to change your diet). There's plenty you can do, but detox for starters.

    Q: I have been drinking nettles tea as well as parsley juice and a tea made of marshmallow, gravel and hydrangea roots to control my potassium levels. I have noticed that my potassium numbers are less controllable now that I do dialysis once or twice a week. I know they give me a “K-bath" and I suspect that it keeps my potassium higher to discourage me from eating fruits and veggies and to make me feel jittery enough to keep going back. Actually the doctor told me not to juice or eat fruits at all. I will be ordering your FULL BODY DETOX this week, However, I want your input on how to control my potassium.

    A:

    You control your potassium levels by not worrying about it - eating how God intended you to eat. Beloved, just eat NATURAL food (fruits, vegetables, seed, and nuts) and you'll be all right. P.S. - apples and bananas are good sources of potassium!

    Q: My sister and I both have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, except my sister has a very severe form of the disease. She has a very irregular menstrual cycle, has severe water retention-- especially with swelling in the face, feet and hands. She constantly has a dull stomachache and cannot lose weight. Doctors seem to only prescribe antibiotics for the recurrent infections (stomach) she has and I am sure they're killing off the good bacteria in her body. We are now ready to turn to natural remedies and I was thinking a cleanse may be a good start. What might you recommend for some of her symptoms?especially something to cleanse the blood and promote lymphatic drainage?

    Q: Will this FULL BODY DETOX help with graves disease associated with pretibialmyexademia? (swelling of the lower calfs and ankles) Please help me with this issue. My thyroid was removed (non-functional) with a radiation pill.

    A:

    It certainly will! But you have to correct your diet and lifestyle as well. Healing is wholistic! Radiation is what killed your thyroid. No organ can be dead in your body while you are alive. Doctors love to exploit people when they don't know. The energy of your thyroid is still there so feed your thyroid gland (Iodine), i.e. THYROID FORMULA.

    Q: I have a question about my tonsils. I had tonsillitis as a child. The last time I had it at the age of 12 my right tonsil remained somewhat swollen. It developed crypts but has not otherwise bothered me until recently. I am now 28 and about a month ago both my tonsils swelled up completely, so much so that I could barely swallow. I took Penicillin for about 8 days, which seemed to bring down the swelling. About a week later it returned. I took amoxicillin for 14 days with the same results. I have taken a strep test and mono test, which have come back negative. I am at a loss, my tonsils are currently quite swollen but do not inhibit me from eating or drinking or swallowing right now. I am concerned about a flare up however, and would like to know what is causing this condition. Could you recommend something to help me with this problem? Also I was wondering about possibly a tonsillectomy, what are your thoughts on this procedure?

    A:

    SWOLLEN TONSILS MEANS YOUR SPLEEN IS BACKED UP DUE TO TOXICITY. YOUR BODY IS TELLING YOU TO DETOX!!! ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS PERFORM A GOOD CLEANSE. YOU DO NOT NEED YOUR TONSILS REMOVED. HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT WHY GOD GAVE YOU TONSILS IN THE FIRST PLACE? WHY REMOVE WHAT GOD GAVE YOU? YOUR DIET AND LIFESTYLE CAUSED THIS PROBLEM. PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX AND CHANGE YOUR DIET AND YOU WILL BEGIN TO HEAL.

    Q: My fiance has experienced water retention and discoloration in his right foot and leg for around 2 years. Doctors had him on water pills, coreg for vascular issues and glyberide for high blood sugars. He ordered the Pancreas kit and around a week into the program experienced more swelling in the foot and leg. He stopped the program to resume taking the water pill to see if this would help. He has gained around 12 lbs which is water held in this leg. I know the natural way of good nutrition and herbs is a good course to follow but can you offer some suggestions to help these issues. 1. water retention 2. His stomach rumbles and gurgles 24 hours a day to the point where I thought our neighbors were dragging furniture across the floor. This has caused him considerable embarrassment at work. We are eating a vegan diet about 50% raw-50%-cooked. Oddly enough when he eats a standard American diet the rumbling stops. 3. High blood pressure. Thank you so much for answering my previous letter to you. I believe in what you are doing, and know that the body will heal at it's own pace with proper care. I have resolved a urinary problem just a week into your Detox program and think it's great.

    A:

    Your husband is NOT getting proper circulation to his extremities. He should have not stopped the Pancreas kit because it is common for things to get worse before better. He should have judged himself after the kit was finished in 3-weeks. He experienced the HEALING CRISIS and stopped! He should complete the kit and regimen (perhaps even starting over).

    His stomach is making noises because he's having digestive problems. He needs to eat as much raw foods as possible and rink plenty of vegetable juice. SAD foods stops his stomach from gurgling because that's what's in his stomach; and when he does not give his stomach what it wants (a sign of fasting and cleansing), he hear the noise from his stomach. Again, the healing crisis. Things will get worse before they get better. However, you don't stop!

    High blood pressure is due to his toxic state and poor circulation!

    Have him perform the Full Body Detox and right after the Full Body Detox, the Pancreas kit and regimen.

    There's healing from him!
