 ankles and feet swell

For over a year now, I have been getting redness around my ankles,
sometimes my whole legs.  Along with the redness, I have aching and
swelling.  The doctor just says to put my feet up.  Is there anything
else to help this situation?

Drink water with lemon , lemonade with real lemons, milk thistle tea
(good iced too)and fresh fruits. Apples the best, they are astringent,
fiber, fluid and have infection fighting vitamins in them. Don't over
work your kidneys tho, drink 8 glasses of fluid a day, no more, no
less.
 fresh fruit counts as half a glass of water. lemonade made with fresh
lemons and just as enough sugar counts as water and so does milk
thistle tea.

so if you have 2 cups of milk thistle tea every morning, that's one
glass of water and if you have a couple cups at bedtime that's another
glass,

then for breakfast you have an apple and a peach chopped into your
oatmeal or whatever, that's another glass of water.
(that's three)

have some lemonade at lunch  and iced milk thistle tea with dinner and
that's 5.

after dinner (which should be steamed brown rice and veggies) have an
apple and a pear for dessert and a glass of water with lemon and some
milk thistle tea, that's 7  glasses of water.

bring a glass of water with lemon with you to bed and sip it with your
meds  before bed . :-)

ok that's just what I would do if I had edema..it's what my dad does
and it helps ..
what's that they  say about idle minds?

my father has edema and ascites (swelling) and his sodium is
restricted, I think it is a good idea to not have any salty food.

if ur liver is not real bad then ask for a diuretic..the excess fliud is not
healthy and can cause infection at times..fyi..julia in va.
