This Powerful Tea Is The Best Remedy For Swollen Ankles, Legs, And Feet!

If you have ever had swollen feet, legs and ankles then you probably know that it can be really frustrating and painful.

Swelling, also called fluid retention in the body or edema, can be provoked by a number of reasons like:

  • Consuming salty foods, like processed foods
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Poor blood circulation
  • PMS
  • Pregnancy
  • As a side effect of some medications
Swelling in the legs can be normal for people who spend their day standing or sitting, or it can be normal for pregnant women. However, chronic swelling of your legs and ankles (peripheral edema) is a grave health problem.  This edema can indicate some serious issues like heart failure, liver disease or kidney disease. So, if the swelling continues, you need to see a doctor.
People who have swollen legs now and then, can use some herbal remedies which are very helpful for reducing the swelling and eliminating excess body fluids. One of these herbs is parsley.
There are two parsley types, Italian parsley (flat leaves) and curly parsley. The Italian parsley is healthier. Parsley is used as a food decoration in almost every restaurant, however, we rarely choose to eat it.
Furthermore, according to new studies, consuming parsley is beneficial and it can protect you from a number of diseases such as digestive disorders, urinary tract infections, allergies, menstrual pain, and asthma, improves the bones health, lowers the blood pressure and can help with bronchitis.


Natural Diuretic
Parsley is a proven natural diuretic. It improves the function of the kidneys and makes it easier for the body to dispose of excess water and salts.
According to a study published in 2002 in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, parsley works as a diuretic by impeding the potassium and sodium ion pumps, affecting the osmosis process and increasing the urine flow.
Parsley prevents the side effects of pharmaceutical diuretics like furosemide, since it is rich in potassium. The chemically produced diuretics reduce the levels of potassium, thus causing side effects.
Yet another study conducted in Brazil in 2009, suggests that parsley can improve the urinary flow and reduce the blood pressure.
Parsley Tea  for Edema
Dr. John R. Christoper, who is an eminent author and herbalist, says that we should drink two quarts (64 ounces) of strong parsley tea every day at the minimum for optimal results.
When preparing the tea, it is for the best to use leaves which are fresh and light green along with the seeds and roots.
  • Chop the roots and leaves.
  • Put about¼ of cup of parsley into a tea infuser.
  • Submerge it into e teapot with boiling water
  • Leave it for 5-7 minutes
  • Strain the tea or remove the tea infuser
  • Add lemon, honey or ginger if you like
Additionally, there are some techniques that you can use to reduce the swelling, such as placing your leg on pillows and raising them over your heart when lying down. Also, exercise your legs since it aids in pumping fluids from the legs back to the heart.
