You can use different natural remedies to get rid of the discomfort created by swollen and tired feet, but nothing is better than a salty feet bath.
Legs can be swollen in the heel and ankle area, in the upper part of the foot, to the fingers, etc. That region may be touch-sensitive to painful. Sometimes the legs are so swollen that they no longer fit into the shoes, although they have the right size.
Feet baths with salty water
Salt is the main cause of water retention in the body, so you may ask yourself if a salty bath won’t aggravate the edema. Well, no, soaking the feet in salt water is an excellent way to reduce the swelling of the legs. Sea salt or even pickle salt, which is an untreated mine salt, has a strong anti-inflammatory role due to the minerals contained. Pour a couple of tablespoons of salt into a basin filled with hot water and keep your feet soaked for 15 minutes. You will quickly feel how the pain and discomfort will disappear. Make a feet bath with salt water several times a week to get rid of the unpleasant symptoms.
Feet position during sleep
If you hold your legs above the rest of your body, you can benefit from the help of gravity. This helps you to eliminate excess water from your legs. Put a pillow under the soles so that the legs stand higher than normal. The feet should be higher than the heart. In this way, water will be removed from areas where edema has formed. It will re-absorb into the body and will eventually be removed as urine.
