I have been through 4 vasers so I thot I would just share my experience with you. If you have bad water rentention or edema, try to drink more tea as that elevates the rate of urination and thus provides a means of forced diuresis. There are several categories of diuretics. All diuretics increase the excretion of water from bodies.Aui wrote:Hi liuli & ksl,
I've been wearing my garment whole day except during bedtime. I didn't tell my Doc about my travel plans, cos' it doesn't matter. Their main concern is for me to wear my garment as long as I can. He advised me to go for massages too cos' there are some lumpy parts of water & fats at my underarms n waist which is v common.
Thanks for the recipe, but I'll skip the vinegar... I can't take that.. Oops
Diuretic foods or supplements having nothing to do with lowering body fat, but will help the body to release fluid. There are certain herbs and foods that are natural diuretics. Including these foods in your diet can assist in alleviating fluid retention.
NOTE: Diuretic supplements should no be taken for more than a few days. Important minerals and nutrients can also be flushed out with the fluids.
The following foods and herbs are know to have diuretic properties:
■Celery seed (and plant)
Other foods (common in the Western diet) also have a diuretic effect:
■Excessive animal-based protein
■Aim to eat small amounts of starchy carbohydrates (such as breads, rice, etc).
■Avoid salt and salty food products.
■Drink plenty of water and herbal teas.
■Avoid sugary foods.
■Eat fruit and vegetables.
To aid with the swelling, try to use some cream or oil to massage the area as often as you, You would see for yourself that the brusies go off much quicker. When the areas become less sensitvem you may want to go for LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE that further help reduce edema.
Wear your compression for at least 3 months to firm and contour your vasered areas if you want good results. You could also sign up for ultrasound or RF session to aid your recovery and firm your skin esp if it sag. Hope this helps.
