Cure for Water Retention

Posted Aug 29 2010 2:17am

I am a bit bothered with my water retention problem. In fact, right now, my feet are really swollen. It’s always like this so I am trying my best to point what is causing it. It’s maybe my kidney problem, medrol and what I am eating. Actually I have eaten chips. Yeah, my bad. Drink ice tea. So, I guess to cure this I have to just concentrate on drinking water and avoiding salty food. Oh man! This is kinda tough. I was researching for some more ways to cure my water retention and stumbled upon this…

To control water retention :

  • Drink more water
  • Watch out for MSG
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Try a natural diuretic
  • Lose weight if you need to
  • Ferret out food allergies

There are a number of nutrients that can help relieve some cases of water retention. Here’s what some experts recommend.

Nutrient Daily Amount

  • Calcium 1,000-1,500 milligrams
  • Magnesium 400 milligrams
  • Potassium 3,500 milligrams
  • Vitamin B6 200 milligrams, taken as 4 divided doses for 5 days before the start of menstruation
  • Plus a B-complex supplement

All I can say is this is one tough battle. And it’s draining my resolve.
