Swollen legs can be an extremely unpleasant condition that can cause difficulties with even the simplest tasks of your daily life.
Swollen legs can result from various reasons such as weight gain, pregnancy, unhealthy diet, poor blood circulation and even some external factors such as hot weather, weather changes, humidity as well as gravity itself.
So if you’re one of the people who have problems with swollen legs, then this article is just for you. We’ll show you how to prepare a homemade tea that cures swollen legs in just a few days. The remedy itself isn’t like most commercial medicines that only provide a temporary solution for the condition. This remedy provides a permanent solution and completely eliminates the excess body fluids.
Believe it or not, the solution to the swollen legs condition is parsley tea. Thanks to its natural diuretic properties, the parsley tea provides numerous benefits for the overall health and well-being. A study published back in 2002 by the Journal of Ethno pharmacology, confirms these diuretic properties thanks to its ability to inhibit the sodium and potassium ion pumps as well as being able to stimulate the flow of urine and osmosis.
Parsley isn’t like other diuretics known to decrease the potassium levels. Instead, parsley is packed with this mineral and improves the performance of the overall organism. You can even raise your daily intake of parsley without suffering any harmful or unwanted side-effects.
According to a Brazilian study published in 2009, an extract from parsley seeds is a diuretic and hypotensive activity that improves the urine flow and regulates blood pressure.
According to one of the most experienced U.S herbalists – Dr. John R. Christopher, the recommended daily intake of raw parsley (or parsley tea) necessary to treat edema is 64 oz. For reaping the full health benefits of parsley, use a whole raw organic herb along with its roots.
Preparing Parsley Tea
Boil 500ml of water and add 5 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley roots and leaves. Let them boil for about 5 minutes and then set the tea aside so it can cool down. Strain the tea afterwards and your tea is ready!
How to Consume the Parsley Tea
Consume the parsley tea 3 times a day and the swelling in your legs will disappear in just a few days.
