Swelling of the feet: how to solve the problem

When suffering from water retention, swelling is concentrated in the abdomen, feet and ankles. It is advisable to take precautions to eliminate swelling in the feet, as this problem prevents us from walking regularly and wearing the shoes that we would like. Especially in the case of elegant occasions, or other circumstances where it is essential to wear tight shoes that can cause problems.

Excessive use of salt is one of the main causes of water retention . The swelling in the feet, closely related to this latter factor, can be due precisely to an excessive intake of iodine and the normal cooking salt with which we usually season our meals. It must be reduced in the diet and the advice is also to take a greater quantity of water with a low salt content, such as Vitasnella.

In this way we fight in a healthy way the water retention and the stasis of liquids throughout the body. The advice, as mentioned above, is also to carry out physical activity , walking and making short runs or at least at a fast pace. In this way, the concentration of liquids decreases, and it is therefore always preferable to walk a bit when you suffer from this problem, even if perhaps in the early days we may experience average intense pain in the feet due to the rubbing of gym shoes which could be a little tight.
