6 Simple And Effective Home Remedies For Water Retention

Water retention or fluid retention, is the accumulation of excess body fluid in certain areas of the body. It is, in the worse cases, quite the unsightly looking condition.

In milder condition, it can cause someone to look obese despite not being overweight. It can also cause pressure fluctuations and in the worst of cases, even a coma.

The clearest symptoms of water retention are easy to notice: swelling of joints, lethargy and a general stiffness in the body.

In the worst of cases, the excess tissue fluid has to be drained out, using minor surgical methods. This would not only be painful but costly too.

Hence, we have brought you six easy-to-do homemade remedies to help ease fluid retention.

The fresh herb that lights up the Italian food you cook is one of the richest sources of antioxidants. Brewing a weak tea out of it can help you ease out your aching joints and drain the tissue fluid that has accumulated in them.

The Best Foods For Cancer Patients

A diet that focuses on a variety of vegetables, fruits and whole grains can be beneficial to cancer patients because many of these foods are known to boost immune function while helping to detoxify the body. Freshly extracted juice blends that include carrots, broccoli, celery, parsley, oranges and lemons are also ideal due to the fact that they avoid the digestive process and instead deliver nutrients directly into the bloodstream.

Stevia Extract
Stevia is an herbal sweetener that is 100 times sweeter than table sugar, yet does not cause blood sugar levels to rise. Nobel prize winner Otto Warburg discovered that cancer cells no longer metabolize oxygen for their energy needs as healthy cells do, but instead they feed on the fermentation of glucose (sugar). For this reason, Stevia may be the ideal sugar substitute for those who are fighting cancer.

Broccoli is rich in anti-cancer minerals, calcium and sulfur. Calcium is important in fighting cancer because it counters acidity i…

Homemade Vitamin C Cream

Vitamin C cream provides remarkable anti-aging benefits to the skin. Vitamin C cream at a 10-percent concentration has been shown to protect against UV damage, stimulate the production of collagen and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Many vitamin C creams and serums on the market today are prohibitively expensive due to the antioxidant's inherent instability. Making your own vitamin C cream costs significantly less than buying name-brand cosmetics. You can also make less at a time to reduce the amount of cream that must be discarded due to oxidation.
