What helps with swelling of the feet

If it is a question of physiological edema, whichoccurs in 80% of pregnant women, the use of gels only partially helps. It is necessary NOT to reduce the amount of liquid consumed (we are talking about water, the norm is 1.5 liters per day), refuse salt and spicy, sweet carbonated drinks, drink cranberry compote (not very sweet), unsweetened tea with lemon, while lying down, keep your legs elevated with support, and not on weight, try not to be in hot and stuffy places. In late terms, swelling may indicate gestosis - late toxicosis, this is a topic for observation by doctors. Yes, it is still very important - do not prescribe diuretics yourself - it's dangerous. And do not worry too much - the cause of edema is pregnancy, when it is resolved, the problem of swelling will be resolved.

In the river at such a time not bathed, and the pool to walk every day did not work. Diuretic is also not advised to abuse. But I drank cranberry juice at least once a day, but I drank. And for the night she smeared Venologn-911 with gel, on a natural basis - with lemon oil, leaf extract of hazelnut, red grapes and pine bark.
