My ankles usually only swell when I take long car rides (like when on vacation). I've tried elevation and even sitting in a hot tub for upwards of two hours and nothing seems to help. We're planning another vacation in a month and I'd like to be able to treat them properly when it occurs. My mom suggested products like Biofreeze, but it isn't specifically designed to reduce swelling, it just relieves the pain. I'd like to keep the remedy as organic as possible, meaning I don't want any nasty side effects and I don't want to use anything that would do any more harm to my body. Aside from all that, I am willing to try anything!
