When a person experiences swelling in their legs or hands it can be caused by many different reasons, like edema, sitting in one position for too long, bad blood circulation and different types of medicines. You should be concerned if this occurs to you as it can be a sign of different serious problems like kidney disease, heart disease or liver disease.

If your experiencing occasional swelling, you can consume some herbs that can overcome the excess fluid in the body. One of the recommended herbs is parsley.

Parsley was recommended by Hippocrates. Parsley is derived from two Greek words: petrose and selenium. Petrose means stone, whereas selenium means celery.

There are two types of parsley, curly parsley and Italian parsley. Parsley is used to garnish different types of dishes in North America, and many people tend to not consume it.

A study discovered that parsley can be used to treat many different types of conditions like, indigestion, urinary tract infection, menstrual pain, asthma, skin allergies, hypertension, brittle bones and bronchitis.

Thousands of years ago, Hippocrates advised everyone to consume parsley as a magic tonic in order to overcome kidney stones, rheumatism, and toxins. In “The Green Pharmacy Herbal Handbook,” parsley serves as a natural diuretic that encourages the issuing of excess fluid (edema).

A study in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology published in 2002, showed evidence that parsley played a role as a diuretic by slowing the absorption of sodium and potassium ion pump, thereby optimizing osmosis and drainage of urine. Another study in 2009 in the Brazilian states that parsley can be taken to lower blood pressure.

Recipe of Parsley Tea

American herbalist, Dr. John R. Christopher suggest that if you are experiencing this problem you should consume about two liters of parsley a day. In fact, you are advised to drink a cup of parsley every hour. Make sure you use the “green leaves,” along with the roots and seeds, if possible.

The procedure:

  • Cut the leaves and roots up into small pieces and store in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator, leave for a week.
  • Enter ¼ cup of parsley to an infusion basket. Leave the mixture to 10 minutes.
  • You can add honey, lemon or ginger if you want to add flavor ingredient.
  • Drink tea warm.

You can also combine this procedure with a technique that is putting your feet on a pillow when lying down. This technique will help the fluid pumping by heart.
