Recipe to help with swelling :)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My midwife gave me this recipe last week when I came in with pudgy feet and hands ;)

 

2 Tbsp dried nettle leaves

2Tbsp dried Dandelion dried leaved

1 quart of water

Steap for 2 hours and drink 1 quart a day

 

 

I started taking this immediately and my swelling has gone WAY down.  I feel so much better I wanted to make sure I shared the recipe with all you mamas :)

Thanks for the recipe; I'll have to give it a try!

 

I've been eating at least one banana a day (really helps keep swelling down), but i'm not the biggest banana fan and get sick of them rather fast...a tea like yours will be much more palatable! :)

I had some swelling a couple months ago and my midwife suggested upping my protein by making a fruity smoothie with a protein supplement like Spirutein. It went away instantly!
