About Water Retention
You know those times when you feel bloated and weirdly gain weight seemingly overnight, that is water retention. Water retention is a type of swelling that occurs due to the abnormal fluid retention in the body. Water retention is medically termed as edema. Hands, arms, face, abdomen and lungs are commonly affected with edema.
Usually water retention does not cause serious problems. But that doesn’t mean that you can take it lightly, it may be an indication of a serious problem. Some conditions which cause fluid retention include kidney failure, cirrhosis of the liver, heart failure, premenstrual syndrome and preeclampsia (a harmful condition in late pregnancy). This symptom can indicate serious issues so make sure to consult your physician if you feel concerned. More often than not, it is the lower legs and feet that swell because of the activity of gravity.
Epsom salt baths can help you rapidly decrease water retention and a bloated body through reverse osmosis. The salt pulls out excess fluids and toxins from your body. Taking a relaxing bath in Epsom Salt can also reduce muscle soreness and cramps. Additionally the bath relaxes and soothes you and helps to destress.
Mix two cups of Epsom salt in warm bathwater and lay in the bath for at least 20 to 40 minutes.
